>comments : My great-great-great-grandfather James Courtenay married Nancy Agnes Kirkwood Jan.6,1821, Country Antrim Parrish,Donegore. They emmigrated to Upper Canada sometime between 1848 (the birth of their youngest child in Ireland) and Feb.1863 (the marriage of their only son, Israel, in Markham, Ontario). Israel was born in 1837, and he had four sisters. I am the great-grandaughter of Israel's daughter, Agnes Kirkwood Courtenay. I have the complete family history after their arrival in Upper Canada, but nothing much about the Irish connection. Were the original Courtenays Huegenots?
