Hi I'm new and I'm looking for any information on the Kearney family who settled in lot 61 about 1819. Bernard (Barney) an his wife Mary were one of the first Irish Catholic settlers there along with Phillip Murphy. We want to know where in Ireland we came from.

I'm looking for information about the history of the Mount Stewart PEI shipyard.  My 2G-grandfather McQuade was the last operator of the shipyard when the Canadian wooden ship-building industry collapsed in the late 19th century.  He appears to have arrived from the British Isles about 1843, and I'm wondering who might have operated the shipyard before he arrived -- possibly his father-in-law Doyle.  Any suggestions for sources of information?

Forgot to mention that the Island Register is the best source of PEI genealogy that I have seen.  Also has a link to a site about the Edinburgh.

Hi Kip - You can check out the database on the Island Register at and also look at A.B. Warburton's A History of Prince Edward Island, page 153.  I think the Annabella was headed for North Carolina but got caught in a winter storm and sank off of Malpeaque, PEI.  The survivors lost all their possessions and almost starved during that first winter.

Looking for information on the ships Annabella and Edinburg that transported my ancestors to PEI in 1770-1771.

Does anyone have any info on the Duke family from Cable Head, PEI.  The earliest Duke I can find is Benjamin, born abt 1808.
