is the place to look for early ships to Canada. Later crossings
may be on ancestry and familysearch. Familysearch has a Wiki explaining what they have
for ships to Canada.
Also, look at

Subject: FERMANAGH-GOLDRoll Call...... IRWIN, STOCKMAN (or WATKINS or Keenan)
Date: Tue, 10 Apr 2018 21:49:17 -0700
My John Irwin Sr. & Jr. and families are said to have come from Fermanagh
in 1831 to Canada, and previously from Scotland to Ulster right around
1800. They stayed in Montreal 3 years, one employed as a tailor, then
moved to Ontario, lived in several places over 30 years, then John Irwin &
Mary McEwen Irwin moved to Honesdale, PA (my g-grandparents). They were
listed as Church of England.
I have hired a small amount of research done in Ontario...Belmore was
founded by Irwin brothers Francis, John & William, and Francis was a
prominent, permanent citizen. Belmore is also found in Fermanagh, so I have
an unsubstantiated hunch they came from that area. So far, I have not
located records for the ship they came across on, and have found nothing
concrete to connect the family with any of the numerous John Irwins listed
in Fermanagh or counties outwith.
THANK YOU ALL FOR THE ENTERTAINING, INFORMATIVE POSTINGS IN THIS GROUP!!!
