Peter Robinson settlers from Ireland to Canada in 1823
on the Ships Stakesby and Hebe
Surnames A to G



In 1823, Peter Robinson brought almost 500 settlers from Ireland to an area just west of Ottawa, Canada. They came on two ships, the Hebe and the
Stakesby. There are many thousands of their descendants in Ottawa and the Ottawa Valley today.


Two years later, in 1825, Robinson brought more settlers but this time to the Peterborough area of Ontario. December 21, 2011: This winter, I'll be researching this large group settlement program.
