  4. [S83] 1851 Canada Census (Canada East, Canada West, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia). The census of 1851 records Dennis Savadge (72), widow, b. Ireland, farmer, entered Colony May 1823. This entry year disagrees with reports from the children.
    William in 1851 census has entered Jun 1827 (age ca. 21).
    Margaret in 1851 census (wid.) has Aug 1828 (age ca. 20).
    Mary in 1851 census has Nov 1826 (age ca. 13), same as her husband Parick.
    Catherine in 1851 census has Apr 1827 (age ca. 13), same as her husband Michael.
    Julia is reported in The Story of Melrose to have marr. Thomas Hearn and lived in Nova Scotia (no records fouund).
    Patrick in 1851 census has entered Aug 1831 (age ca. 11).
    Timothy in 1851 census has entered Oct 1831 (age ca. 10).
    It would not be unusual for a family to migrate in separate voyages but the differences here cannot be reconciled. There is a pattern in the 1851 census to repeat the husband's entry date for the wife's. This genealogy will assume that they all migrated together between 1823 and 1831.
