Laverty, William of Co. Armagh

WILLIAM LAVERTY & HANNAH KELLY were my great-grand-parents; his parents were GEORGE LAVERTY & ELIZABETH BROWN, my great-great-grand-parents. Immigration & Naturalization Service documents state that William was from Armagh, of county or city is not known.

Little is known of William's early years. A record from the U.S. Department of Justice, Immigration and Naturalization Service states that he was born in ARMAGH, IRELAND, and arrived in the USA, via New Brunswick Canada, in 1833. This is the only official document which confirms Armagh as the point of emigration for the family. It appears that he left Ireland c.1816. We have no documents to prove his whereabouts until 1825 when John Laverty, one of his brothers, was born in Maugerville, New Brunswick Canada. At the time of Williams arrival in Maine, his father, George, was negotiating for land in New Brunswick.

Intentions of marriage dated 4 July 1848 of William LAFFERTY (LAVERTY) and Hannah KELLY and marriage register dated 17 August 1848 list his residence as Houlton Maine. From census records it appears that William owned property in Houlton in 1850 and that their first three children were born there. Annie Jane was born in New Brunswick in 1856 when they were probably living on a farm in Oak Mountain, New Brunswick Canada for which William received a grant in 1860. The 1861 census shows that his father, George, was living with the family. No record has been found of Williams death or burial, although, purportedly, he died alone in Pennsylvania USA. Hannah sold the family property to a Robert Hay in 1868. There's much more data on my website, noted below for whomever may be interested.
