bullet  General Notes:

"Luke was a soldier with the 27th Ennisgillen and was pensioned after Waterloo. I found a listing which stated his father unknown name was born in 1753 in Fermanagh and he is rumoured to be descended from the third son who came to Ireland with William of Orange. He was paid when pensioned off to return to Lisnaskea. and there is a record of him in Mcguires Bridge in 1827." Source: Peter Harcourt, descendant of Michael Harcourt.

The death record for Luke and Mary's son, Thomas, indicates that he and his family arrived in Canada in 1832.
