Thomas BERTRIDGE [Parents] died. Thomas married Catherine MAXWELL.

We know of Thomas's existence from the baptismal records of his children. While most of his children were baptised in the parish of Mohill, the child whom we believe to have been the eldest was baptised in the parish of Kiltoghert where our Bertridges lived. Given the Kiltoghert connection I am making the assumption that Thomas was a son of our William Bertridge.

Catherine MAXWELL died. Catherine married Thomas BERTRIDGE.

Given the gap between the births of their children listed below, Thomas and Catherine may well have had more children.

They had the following children.

  F i
Mary BERTRIDGE was born about 27 Jul 1835 in probably Mohill, Co. Leitrim. She was christened on 27 Jul 1835 in Kiltoghert, Carrick-on-Shannon, Co. Leitrim.

Sponsors at Mary's baptism were William Butler and Anne Gaffey.

The FamilySearch website, www.familysearch.org, tells us that a Mary Bertridge, aged 19, was imprisoned in Carrick-on-Shannon in 1852 for "wilful trespass". No further details are provided but, despite the slight age discrepancy, it is possible that the prisioner referred to is our Mary above.
  M ii
John BERTRIDGE was born about 14 Jun 1840 in probably Mohill, Co. Leitrim. He was christened on 14 Jun 1840 in Mohill, Co. Leitrim. He died before Sep 1846.

Another John was born to Thomas and Catherine five years later, in 1846, indicating that this John died as a child.
  F iii
Margaret BERTRIDGE was born about 15 May 1845 in probably Mohill, Co. Leitrim. She was christened on 15 May 1845 in Mohill, Co. Leitrim.
  M iv
John BERTRIDGE was born about 1 Sep 1846 in probably Mohill, Co. Leitrim. He was christened on 1 Sep 1846 in Mohill, Co. Leitrim.

Another John had been born to Thomas and Catherine in 1840, but the birth of this John indicates that the first John had died.

William BERTRIDGE [Parents] was born about 1808 in possibly Cloonfeacle, Kiltoghert, Carrick-on-Shannon. He died on 5 May 1888 in possibly Arnprior, Ontario. William married Bridget Ann MACDERMOTT in Ireland.

Other marriages:
KEEFE, Mary (caution: not verified)

Please see the notes above on William's older brother Robert for information on William's involvement in an abduction in 1836.

William, his first wife, Bridget, and their surviving children (it appears that at least two of their five children born in Ireland had died) emigrated to Canada between 1846 and 1848, living initially in Aylmer, Quebec (now in Ontario) where William worked as a gardener. At least five more children were born in Canada, where the family went by the name of Bartridge.

I have come across the followng information from the 1881 census for a Bartridge household in Carleton, Ontario (transcribed data only, actual image not available):

William Bartridge, aged 43, farmer, born Ireland, ethnic origin Scottish
Ann Bartridge, aged 45, born Ireland, ethnic origin Scottish
William Bartridge, aged 22, farm labourer, born Ontario, ethnic origin Scottish

Is this our Bartridge family? If so, the Scottish origin is interesting.

Bridget Ann MACDERMOTT was born in possibly between 1820 and 1822 in Ireland. She died in possibly between 1859 and 1871 in possibly Arnprior, Ontario. Bridget married William BERTRIDGE in Ireland.

They had the following children.

  F i Catherine BARTRIDGE was born about 23 Jan 1838. She died on 16 May 1899.
  F ii
Mary BARTRIDGE was born about 4 Sep 1839 in probably Kiltoghert, Carrick-on-Shannon, Co. Leitrim. She was christened on 4 Sep 1839 in Kiltoghert, Carrick-on-Shannon, Co. Leitrim. She died before 31 Dec 1845 in probably Kiltoghert, Carrick-on-Shannon, Co. Leitrim.

Mary's last name on her baptismal record is Bertige, which is probably synonymous with Bertridge. The baptismal record also shows Mary's mother's first name to be Bridget (it appears as Catherine or Anne on the baptismal records of some of her siblings).

It was difficult to decipher the names of the sponsors on Mary's baptismal record but they appear to be Michael Bertridge and Catherine McDermott.

Another Mary was born to William and Bridget (or Anne or Catherine) six years later, in 1845, indicating that this Mary died as a child.
  F iii
John BARTRIDGE was born about 21 Sep 1841 in probably Kiltoghert, Carrick-on-Shannon, Co. Leitrim. She was christened on 21 Sep 1841 in Kiltoghert, Carrick-on-Shannon, Co. Leitrim.

John's baptismal record shows Catherine's mother's first name to be Anne (it appears as Bridget or Catherine on the baptismal records of her siblings).

Sponsors at John's baptism were William Bertridge and Susan Bertridge.

It appears John may have died as a child as he is not listed with his parents in the 1851 census of Canada.
  M iv
Robert BARTRIDGE was born about 16 Jul 1843 in probably Kiltoghert, Carrick-on-Shannon, Co. Leitrim. He was christened on 16 Jul 1843 in Kiltoghert, Carrick-on-Shannon, Co. Leitrim.

Robert's last name on her baptismal record is Bertredge, which is probably synonymous with Bertridge. The baptismal record also shows Robert's mother's first name to be Bridget (it appears as Catherine or Anne on the baptismal records of some of his siblings).

Sponsors at Robert's baptism were William Bertridge and Cisly (sic) McDermott.

Robert is listed, aged 8, with his parents and siblings in the 1851 census of Canada. The family was living in Aylmer, Quebec at the time. Unfortunately nothing more is known of Robert after this point.
  F v
Mary BERTRIDGE was born about 31 Dec 1845 in probably Kiltoghert, Carrick-on-Shannon, Co. Leitrim. She was christened on 31 Dec 1845 in Kiltoghert, Carrick-on-Shannon, Co. Leitrim. She died in probably before 10 Oct 1852 in probably Kiltoghert, Carrick-on-Shannon, Co. Leitrim.
  F vi
Elizabeth Anne BARTRIDGE was born on 10 Jun 1848 in Aylmer, Quebec. She was christened on 11 Jun 1848 in Missions d'Aylmer Registre, Quebec.

Unfortunately there is no further information available on Elizabeth.
  F vii
Cecelia BARTRIDGE was born about 1850 in probably Aylmer, Quebec.

Unfortunately we have no further information on Cecelia.
  F viii Mary Jane BARTRIDGE was born on 10 Oct 1852. She died on 25 Nov 1942.
  F ix Theresa BARTRIDGE was born about 1857. She died on 4 Jun 1942.
  M x
William Augustin BARTRIDGE was born on 1 Feb 1859 in Portage-du-Fort, Quebec.

Unfortunately we have no further information on William.

Patrick BERTRIDGE died after 9 May 1882.

I haven't been able to connect Patrick to our Bertridge family but I believe it is likely that he is related.

There is an entry in Griffith's Valuation for a Patrick Betridge (sic) who occupied land in the townland of Fearnaght in Annaduff, Co. Leitrim in the mid-1850s, but given that Patrick above was a labourer (according to the marriage record of his daughter Bridget) it is unlikely that Patrick above was the same Patrick as the Patrick in Griffith's Valuation. The Patrick in Griffith's Valuation may well be the Patrick Betridge who married Ellen Stanford in Mohill, Co. Leitrim on 24 November 1851.

He had the following children.

  F i Bridget BERTRIDGE was born about 1858.

Andrew MCDONNELL [Parents] was born about 1857 in possibly Aghintass, Annaduff, Co. Leitrim. Andrew married Bridget BERTRIDGE on 9 May 1882 in Drumsna, Co. Leitrim.

Bridget BERTRIDGE [Parents] was born about 1858 in possibly Finnalaghta, Annaduff, Co. Leitrim. Bridget married Andrew MCDONNELL on 9 May 1882 in Drumsna, Co. Leitrim.

According to her marriage record, which gives her surname as Beterige, Bridget was from the townland of Finnalaghta in the parish of Annaduff. The Leitrim Genealogy Centre has records of three burials for Bertridges/Betridges from the same townland.

Bridget Betridge (sic), of Finnalaghta, Annaduff, died 5 January 1851, buried Annaduff
Bridget Betridge (sic) of Finnalaghta, Annaduff, died 13 June 1873, buried Annaduff  
Eleanor Bertridge of Finnalaghta, Annaduff, died 19 December 1880, buried Annaduff

These are almost certainly connected to Bridget above.

Marriage Notes:

Witnesses were William Crowley and Mary Mulvey.


Andrew MCDONNELL died before 9 May 1882.

According to the marriage record of his son, also named Andrew, Andrew above was a farmer.

He had the following children.

  M i Andrew MCDONNELL was born about 1857.

Matthew GARVEY died. Matthew married Catherine BERTRIDGE (caution: not verified) on 22 Apr 1838 in Kiltoghert, Carrick-on-Shannon, Co. Leitrim.

Catherine BERTRIDGE (caution: not verified) [Parents] died. Catherine married Matthew GARVEY on 22 Apr 1838 in Kiltoghert, Carrick-on-Shannon, Co. Leitrim.

On her marriage record Catherine's surname is Bertrige, which is presumably synonymous with Bertridge. While we have no proof the Catherine was a daughter of our William Bertridge, the rarity of the surname and the fact that her marriage took place in Kiltoghert, it is likely.

Marriage Notes:

Witnesses to the marriage of Catherine and Matthew were William Down and Margaret Lenahan.


Patrick FALLEN / FALLON died. Patrick married Bridget BERTRIDGE on 17 Feb 1845 in Kiltoghert, Carrick-on-Shannon, Co. Leitrim.

Bridget BERTRIDGE [Parents] died. Bridget married Patrick FALLEN / FALLON on 17 Feb 1845 in Kiltoghert, Carrick-on-Shannon, Co. Leitrim.

On her marriage record Bridget's surname is Betridge, which is presumably synonymous with Bertridge. While we have absolutely solid evidence the Bridget was a daughter of our William Bertridge, the rarity of the surname and the fact that the marriage took place in Kiltoghert, it is likely.
