My g-grandmother was Nora Fleming who was married to William Ryan. They are
the Flemings of Boularderie and are buried in both the Pioneer cemetery at
Little Brasd'or and the newer St. Josephs's.
I have found them in the 1881 and the 1901 census. Nora Fleming Ryan died
(in childbirth ?) and her younger children were cared for by relatives for a
period of time. . Bridget is found with the Flemings in Boularderie and
Daniel (Vincent) with an aunt Dunlap. The Brodericks, Dunlaps Flemings and
ryans all were connected by marriage. It appears that they emigrated around
1820. I found a John Fleming and Bridget Calvin marying on July 29 1824 ,
Roman Catholic, in Kilcummin, Kerry Ireland and another John Flemming and
Bridget Fleming married on Jan 24 1793 Roman Catholic in Killarney, Kerry
Ireland but have not proved the connection as yet.Later today I will send
the census info. Regards, Margie Scott

Subject: [NS-CB-L] Broderick Family - Main-a-Dieu and Little Bras d'Or
I am wondering if there is anyone researching the Brodericks that were
in Main-a-Dieu in the 1881 census. I am researching the Brodericks
Little Bras d'Or and I am wondering if there is a connection.
My ancestor is William Broderick who was married to Hanorah Fleming.
was born in Ireland about 1820. I suspect that William came here with
parents. I do know that Hanorah's parents came here because her mother was
living in their home in 1871. In 1838 in Little Bras d'Or there is an
Broderick who has a male in his household over the age of 14. I am
if this could be William. There is also a James Broderick who has a
under the age of 6. He appears to be too young to be the father of
but could possibly be a brother. Over time the Brodericks seem to
from the little Bras d'Or area with the exception of the family of
son, David Broderick.
If William did in fact have brothers who came to Cape Breton as well, I
if the Main-a-Dieu Brodericks could be related to them.
Any help would be appreciated!
