About Patrick Nelligan

Information, Other Kids, Notes, etc. The Émile Corbeil notes have been partly checked by archives, unfortunately incomplete, of the Catholic parish of Buttevant in the records covering the period from 1814 to 1828. It reads that around 1820 actually lived in Ballybeg, a village about a mile south of Buttevant, Patrick Neeligan [sometimes spelled name [Nelagan]] wIth his wife Margaret Daly: it is the great-grandparents of Emile Nelligan. There are two entries indicating the birth of their children (10): David, born October 22, 1820, and Ellen, born May 25, 1823, brother and sister of Patrick Nelligan, grandfather of the poet. However, it is unknown whether it was born in 1818, as is the note of Emile Corbeil, as the baptismal records for the period 17 May 1817 to December 1819 lack the church archives of Buttevant. The situation is also complicated because, once in Canada, Patrick Nelligan give as birth date, March 13, 1822, which is not impossible, it would be born, according to his own statement after his brother David and before her sister Ellen.
