  • Notes 
    • He was on the 1907 Downpatrick Unitarian Church Committee

      Owing to depressing times in the farming industry, and to heavy financial involvement in a new farm in Ballydonnety, sometime in the late 1920's Tom Kinnear sold out, and took his younger eight children to Canada. There they established a home, the older ones caring for the younger ones. Later Tom re-married, came back to Ireland where he later died. The whole family have made good.

      Aunt Annie also thought that Thomas may have been a cousin of her grandfather James Kinner.

      Surname: Kinnear Given name: Thomas Age: 68 Sex: M Nationality: Ir Date of arrival: 1929/04/29 (YYYY/MM/DD) Port of arrival: Quebec , Quebec Ship: ATHENIA , Anchor Donaldson Reference: RG76 - IMMIGRATION, series C-1-a Volume: 1929 volume 2 Page: 178 Microfilm reel: T-14751

      In 1898 or 1899 when Thomas Albert was 37 (he literally had to wait until his mother passed away in order to bring his bride into the family farm, hence his age at first marriage), he married his wife Annie DICKSON. Annie was born in 1874 in Down and died on 11 6 1921, aged 47. Buried in Downpatrick Unitarian. In the 1901 census Thomas aged 39 is living with Annie age 36 and their daughter Lizzie aged 1 year and 3 months. [1, 8]
