In Reply to: Eliza Nutly(Johnson) Ireland/Rawdon, Quebec by Cathy Cadd of 12

Hi Cathy,

I don't have a connection with your Eliza Nulty (McNulty), but most of my McNultys arrived in Rawdon, Quebec from Killashandra, Co. Cavan, Ireland between about 1838 and 1840. I have my whole clan on my web site, "McNulty-Gray-Paris-Moody genealogy" at httpp://

They were called "Nulty" in the early Irish records and also in the early Canadian census records, but by about 1860 were shown as McNulty.

All my McNultys were listed as Catholic, but Cavan was a border county, "planted" with Protestants, and pretty violent in the hundred years or more before these Nultys emigrated to Canada, so who knows what accommodations were reached in those days.

You might take a look at the Canadian genealogy web site
"Publications de la Société de généalogie de Lanaudière" at They have a tremendous collection of books of transcribed vital records for Rawdon and many of the nearby communities, and there were Nulty/McNultys in several of those villages.

Good luck and good hunting.

Sars McNulty
