January 1, 2004:

Surname: CONNOR and KINCH

My great grandmother's name was Sarah Jane Connor born in 1840 in County Cork, 
Ireland. She married James Aaron Kinch from Kitley and they lived in Kitley. They 
moved to Wolford (next to Kitley) where she died in February, 1919. Her parents were 
James Connor born in County Cork, Ireland in 1796 and Ruth ?? born in County Cork in 
1797. If it seems to you as if these two might be related, please advise and I will 
share more info with you.

Note: There's an Alexander KINCH in Bytown in 1829 ... Al (ML# 372 and ML# 645) He came from the coal-mining area (Castlecomer) of County Kilkenny. Some of the Kinch families were Protestant and some Catholic. See Bruce Elliott's article on emigration from South Leinster (Wexford and Carlow) after the 1798 Rebellion. 6 Jan 1833 Baptism of John, son of Michael Davy / Davey ( Deevy ?) and Sarah Kinch of Nepean Godparents: William Kennedy & Ann Tierney 25 Jul 1848 Baptism of Mary, about 5 yrs. old, daughter of Alexander Kinch (ML# 645) and Mary Tierney Witness: Sarah McKenna Source: Ellen Paul's Notre Dame records.

I'm chasing the Kinch family name also. My wife's grandmother was Lula Pearl Kinch from North Gower / Stittsville area of Carleton Co. Lula's parents were John Alexander and Sarah Taylor, he being born in North Gower and she in Rideau Township. Lula and her siblings were born in Souris, Manitoba where Sarah died and presumably is buried there along with two of the 5 daughters, Delinda and Viola. John, Lula, Mabel and Lena came back to Ontario where he married Elizabeth Hyndman in 1912. John's parents were John and Bridgit Bowler - this couple are buried at the Holy Trinity Anglican Cemetery in North Gower. This is a brick wall for me. I can't seem to get past John. I have a hunch that John may be the eldest child of Alexander Kinch and his wife Mary Tierney, he fits in nicely but it is purely speculation on my part. Can you tell me more about the Kinch family you are searching. Olav e-mail: 2ulips@rogers.com ____________________ Hi Olav: Thanks for your e-mail regarding the Kinch family. Do you mind if I add it, along with your e-mail address, to my Kinch page at bytown or Bust? I just had a quick look and there are some Kinch records at Notre Dame and at St. Phillip's in Richmond. For example, here's one from 1895 in Richmond: 24 June After dispensing with banns and the impediment against mixed marriages, marriage of William Brennan, a Catholic and son of age of Patrick Brennan and Martha Deroy (Dubreuille?) of this parish, and Elizabeth Hyndman, Protestant, daughter of age of Robert Hyndman and Mary Hinch / Kinch of this parish. Present: John McNally and Catherine Brennan, his wife. Source: Ellen Paul's database of St. Philips Church in Richmond ... Al _____________ I believe the Kinch family I'm searching were Anglican, John and Bridget buried at Holy Trinity, Vera Emmaline Kinch and her spouse George Edward Ledger are buried at St. Thomas Anglican Church Cemetery just south of Stittsville, John Alexander Kinch is also buried at St. Thomas, but Kathy's grandmother Lula Pearl married a Catholic, Norman Clost, both buried at Pinecrest. I'm attaching a report on what I know of the Kinch family. (two generations shown below) Most of the folks that I am searching on my wife's side are in fact from Ottawa - Dunning, Rawlings, Cleary, Kinch, Murphy, Taylor just to mention a few.
