The book The Untold Story: The Irish in Canada, edited by Robert O'Driscoll and Lorna Reynolds,
Celtic Arts of Canada, Toronto, 1988, ISBN 0-921745-00-1, contains the following research paper by Julian Gwyn, pages 355-375:
The Irish in the Napanee River Valley: Camden East Township (Ontario), 1851-1881.
Here we can trace population trends, land settlement issues and poverty -- the poverty element is over-represented by
Irish Catholic famine immigrants from 'Black 47. Many of those who came to Camden Township are related to
the Irish settlers who came to the Ottawa, Ontario, Canada area (especially to Gloucester and Osgoode Townships) from the
Fitzwilliam Estate in County Wicklow (see link below).
