Looking for the immigration and birth information for James Duffy. Some records indicath he was from Northern Ireland. He married MARY ANN WOODBURN (My great- great-GRANDMOTHER), who was born in Derry, Ireland to JAMES WOODBURN (printer) and MARTHA MAYNE. Mary Ann died (Child Birth - Fever).
NOTE:* Possibly Garvagh 1st Presbyterian Church Tamlaght.
The River Bann flows through Ulster (in northern Ireland), Septemberarating Londonderry from Antrim. It drains Lough Neagh to the north, meeting the sea at Coleraine near the Giant's causeway.
James Duffy was about 22 when he married Mary Ann Woodburn on June 16, 1846 in St. Joseph's Catholic Church, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. They had seven sons.
1. Isaac Smyth Duffy in 1847
2. Augustus Duffy in 1849
3. Alexander Mayne Duffy in 1852
4. James Woodburn Wellington Duffy in 1853
5. William Knox Duffy in 1855
6. Frederick Hunter Duffy in 1857
7. Andrew Cochran Duffy in 1860
The last name was originally spelled "DUFFY", but was changed at an unknown date to "DUFFEY".
NOTE: The marriage of James Duffy is recorded in the parish register of Christ Church, Bytown.
"This sixteenth day of June one thousand eight hundred and forty-six, James Duffy of Bytown, Bachelor and Shoemaker, and Marianne Woodburn of the same place, Spinster, were married by me under authority of the governor general's licence. S.S. Strong. Witnesses:Elisabeth Woodburn and C.E. Ed------ (indecipherable).".
NOTE: JAMES WOODBURN, married MARTHA MAYNE and imigrated to Canada (Gloucester Twp, Carleton County) around 1841. JAMES WOODBURN moved to Mountian Rd. a short distance from where the Deschene-Moffett Rd. ends. (South-Hull, Quebec) He was from near Belfast, Ireland. He ancestor had come from Scotland and Malta as a bodygaurd. He went to northern Ireland and this is the branch that gave us JAMES WOODBURN and RICHARD WOODBURN.
It is possible that JAMES died in Gloucester, on June 5, 1867. He was listed in a transcription by Sue Barr of the Ottawa Times death announcements as " James Woodburn, Sr., aged 82 years".
