The Irwins of Granby Quebec

There are four Irwin-Wallace mariages in Granby. All these Irwins are descended from James Irwin and Martha Ruddle (spelled Ruddell by her descendants) who came from Ireland, probably Co.Tyrone, with their children about 1820. They first settled at St. Brigit and went to church at Abbotsford where they are buried. Later, they moved to Caanan, a small settlement just outside Granby at that time.
