The Peter Robinson Migration

By Maureen Crowley, Crowley Clan Newsletter, March 2008

The Peter Robinson Immigration in 1825 brought the Crowleys to the Peterborough area from Ireland leaving from the Port in Cobh, County Cork. Presently there are over 20 families in this area. Most of us can trace our family back to a Patrick Crowley (1790) born in Glennacuna Townland, Tipperary County, Church of Templetiny and Ballyporeen. Our family lives on the Crowley Line, and there is a Crowley Street in the City of Peterborough.

My daughter Brittany, sisters Cathy and Lori, and I had the pleasure of attending our first Clan Gathering in 2007. It was a memorable experience meeting distant relatives, visiting the Crowley Castle, and seeing Ireland.

We would like to thank the Crowley Clan Committee for connecting us all to our past and meeting present family members. We are a special family and should be proud of who we are and where we have come from. It’s amazing that we have all found each other.
