Alyward/Alward/Alyward/Elward – Some Elwards from Ireland to Michigan via Shippegan

Index: Lameque, Miscou and Shippegan

Vic Elward came across my Irish Aylwards of Shippagan article while working on his family genealogy so we’ve been working behind the scenes to document the link between his Michigan Elwards and the Irish Aylwards of Shippegan. In this post we’re sharing a few genealogical notes that connect Elward’s family to the Aylwards through Patrick Aylward/Elward and Celina Landry.

LamequeGuillaume William Aylward, son of John Aylward and Virginie Duguay, was born in 1861 in Shippagan Gloucester. (see link above for previous generations). Guillaume married Marthe Mailloux on 5 Nov 1888 in Gloucester County (New Brunswick).  Marthe was born in 1864 in Gloucester and died after 1911.

These Aylwards can be found in the 1901/1911 Shippegan census. In 1901 Guillaume’s parents John Aylward & Virginie Duguay were living with him – though by 1911 John had passed away and only Virginie remained. Their 1911 household was quite large because in addition to Guillaume & Marthe and their children, and his mother Virginie, there was also Guillaume’s sister Adonise Aylward and her husband Honore Duguay and two children Pierre and Abbe.

Four generations of Aylwards in one house!

Carnival of Irish Heritage and Culture

My family tree is almost exclusively Acadian and French-Canadian so I’ve never taken part in Irish Blog Carnivals but when I looked through my family tree for Irish surnames (the theme for the 13th Edition) I came across the Aylwards of Shippagan, New Brunswick. They are on the far edge of my family tree on a branch that connects me to the Witzells. Continue reading
