bullet  General Notes:

Mary Ann Doyle was born 8 Dec 1830 and was only four months old when her parents, Patrick and Ann, emigrated to Canada. She was eighteen when she married James Fitzpatrick 23 Feb 1849 at St. Bartholomew's Church, Guelph, Ontario. This was James7 second marriage. He was sent out to Canada from Ireland when he got his mother's maid, Bridget, pregnant. He saved enough money to bring her to Canada and marry her, but she died shortly after their son, Edward, was born in 1846.

When James and Mary Ann married, they bought Lot 23 Con 16 in Peel Township, which is north of Guelph.

The Crown Sale Grant and Patent, which was issued 8 Sep 1885, were in Mary's name.

James and Mary Ann had seven children - Patrick A. 11 Feb 1850, Thomas 13 Aug 1852, Mary Ann 15 Sep 1856, Agnes 1858, Ellen 14 July 1860, Margaret 3 June 1862 and Annie 28 Aug 1864. The 1851 Census for Peel Township lists James, Mary and their son Pat. The 1861 Census adds Thomas, Mary and Ellen. The Agricultural Census for 1861 states James and Mary Ann as having 105 acres of land, which was worth $3,000, 65 acres of wooded land, 20 acres in crops and 20 acres in pasture.

James died 8 Dec 1895 at the age of 74 and Mary Ann moved in with her daughter, Ellen, who was a milliner in Elora. Mary Ann died quite suddenly 21 Feb 1914 when she was 84. The following is an account of her death:

Mrs. Fitzpatrick was born in Ireland in the year 1830, coming to the country in her mother's arms. Her father, the late Patrick Doyle settled in Puslinch Township where with her parents she resided until 1849, when she was married to her late husband, James Fitzpatrick and settled in Peel township, then a wilderness. With him she suffered all the hardships attached to those days. Seven children blessed the union: Patrick, Thomas, Agnes (Mrs. T. Duffy, deceased), Mrs. Joseph Coffee of Parker, Mrs. John Coffee, Mrs. Daniel Griffin of Winnipeg, and Ellen in Elora. With the last mentioned, she had lived for the past 12 years in the enjoyment of every comfort till on Saturday 21st of February, 1914, death claimed her, and she passed peacefully away, with only a few hours illness. The remains were conveyed to St. Mary's R.C. Church, Elora, where requiem mass was sung by her pastor, Rev. Father Sullivan. Then she was taken to Holy Family Cemetery, Peel, where her grandsons reverently did all that is mortal of one of whom is but a slight tribute to say that she was a model Christian, a true friend, and a loving, self-sacrificing mother. Rev. Father Arnold of Drayton officiated at the grave.

Both James and Mary Ann Doyle Fitzpatrick are buried in Holy Family Cemetery on the 12th Concession of Peel. This cemetery is a disgrace and no Fitzpatrick tombstones can be found.
