Title
Up To Rawdon: Settlers at Rawdon Township, Lower Canada c. 1820-1852. Their Origins and Continued Migration Across Canada and the United States
Abstract
This book in two volumes is the result of the author's research into the early history of Rawdon Township, Lower Canada, where his ancestors settled 1824-1832. It includes most of the immigrants settling there before 1852. Volume One profiles 80 families in 64 chapters. The origin of each family is determined when possible and their destinations on leaving which include a dozen American states. Volume Two details another 40 families. The balance of its 42 chapters highlight 70 families who moved from Rawdon to central and western Ontario, the influence of American settlers, the first church and school, the military origin of many settlers, the importance of the militia in daily life and the relationship between Catholic and Protestant immigrants. Most families investigated are Protestant but the book includes chapters about the early Irish-Catholic community with details on other families.
