In Reply to: Hayes from Ireland to St John's to Boston by Susan Clancy of 4937

First I should let you know the correct name for the city is "Saint John" as opposed to St. John's, Newfoundland.

I found the family in the 1851 census of Saint John,NB.(actually 1852) Kings and Sydney wards.

Michael M Head        56 Irish labourer 1836                      
Mary        F Wife        50 Irish         1836                      
John        M Son        20 Irish labourer 1836                      
Julia        F Dau       10                 Birth                      
Margaret F Dau        6                 Birth

There was no Michael HAYES listed even when I searched for one born 10 years either way.
Annie must have been born later in 1852 after the census was taken.
I highly recommend contacting the following...
The Diocese of Saint John Archives, for Roman Catholic Church records is located at 1 Bayard Drive, Saint John , N.B. E2L3L5 Phone (506)653-6807.
Hours are by appointment only and it operates on a part time basis . A small fee for mail inquiries ; but allow some time for replies as staff is limited. Lots of early records on microfilm . Also some records have been
transcribed and arranged in Family Groups.

Hope this helps,
