Roman Catholicism is a branch of Christianity. End of.

Sorry for the tardy reply. I have an answer to your query about why James Hanright, a life-long Catholic, was buried in a Protestant cemetery.
The area of Quebec where James and Jane Hanright settled did not have an organized Catholic church until 1855. The first Catholic church in their immediate area was Saint Raphael of Bury organized in 1868. James died prior to the establishment of a Catholic parish in his area. I suspect the family buried James in the only cemetery available to them at the time.

Still no luck in finding Irish roots.


That's makes perfect sense then. Thanks Donna!

I never heard back from the Anglican Irish Library, so not sure that path is available.

I do keep a lookout for any Rossenallis parish info online every few months. Someone's a get a 10 Euro day access to the roots Ireland website just to have a look.

At the end of the day, 1789 is not bad for Irish ancestry.

Hi Darryn

I am so sorry that I have not responded earlier but I just noticed your post.
One of the best sources of information about the Hanright family in Canada is the Canada Census database. It is digitized and easy to search online.
Clues about Jane Hanright's maiden name come from church records in the Compton County Historical Society located in a file titled "Hanright". It has not been digitized. In the file was a photocopy from church records (the church was not identified) that read:
" Jane Eliza Rice [relic] of the late James Hanright, Bury, born upon the (date lost) upon Wednesday the eighth day of March in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and eighty two and was buried upon the following Friday the tenth day of March in the same year by me, F. U. Webster, incumbent Present: James Hanright, son of the deceased Aged about 104 years."

I noticed an family tree that mentions James & Jane had a daughter, Susannah, born 12 August 1819. It says she married James Carew. I'm guessing they were the parents of Jane Eliza Carew (1843-1922) who married Walter Gowen Therburne in 1865. She may be the same Jane Carew listed with James & Jane in 1851 aged 8.

Also, found a Susanna Hamite baptised 31 August 1817 in Mountmellick, Laois, Ireland (adjacent to Rosenallis) to "Jas" and witnessed by Robert (Rice?) and Cath. Headen. ... cat=346714
