A record of the Family of Fitzpatrick, in the township of York, Ontario, Canada.
Sometime in the late seventeen hundreds, William Fitzpatrick and his wife, Elizabeth Duncan, natives of County Mayo, Ireland, emigrated to the New World, travelling by sailing vessel. Journeying presumably by ox-cart, they arrived at the settlement of York and established squatters rights to a parcel of land in the then wilderness of UpperCanada, to the most of our knowledge about the year 1796.
When the Canada Lands Act was brought into force in the years 1830 to 1835 they applied for and were granted a deed by the Crown to the property known as the South Half of Lot 5, Conession 4, York Township East of Yonge St. in the year of our Lord 1834.
The recording of their descendants, as compiled by Mary Margaret Barber, a fifith generation granddaughter, who has copied dates from cemetery records, deeds and old documents, and has relied to a great extent on the remarkable memory of her aunt, Mary Elizabeth Hunter, a fourth generation granddaughter.

The winter of winters is passed,
The storms of affliction are o'er.
Their struggles are ended in death,
And sorrow and death are no more.
