Welcome to fitz-patrick.ca

This site is online to commemorate the lives of the children of Robert Persse Fitz-Patrick (son of Rev. Frederick  Fitz- Patrick and Lady Olivia Taylour) and Caroline Rebecca  Moore (daughter of Arthur Moore, Dean of Anchonry). Bob  and Carrie were married in 1885.
They had five children together*: Arthur Headfort Persse, Olivia Gladys, Frederick George Hugo, Edwina Lillian and Edward Louis Moore (my grandfather). I dedicate this site to his memory.

I developed this site in response to the increasing interest in genealogy generally, and in my branch of the Fitz-Patrick family in particular, which, I am told, is generally referred to as the Noble Line, because of our descendency from Bryan Mac Giolla Phádraig (Fitz-Patrick) Lord and First Baron of Upper Ossory.

I was made aware of this renewed interest by Fitzpatrick aficionados Ronn Fitzpatrick and Steve Zalewski, who have collaborated on and published a descendancy of Bryan Fitzpatrick Lord and 1st Baron of Upper Ossory, and operate the Mac Giolla Phádraig Clan Society.

Lastly, I have no financial interest in any of the products or books linked to within this site. The links are for further informational or personal resources only.
