Actually, our Hugh Sr. is also the son of a Hugh Hurley (the first of three Hugh's in our line) and Jane Jackson. Hugh (I) had two sons: Hugh (II) and George. I am not aware of any Patrick in our line. Our Hugh Hurleys (all three of them) can all be found living next door to each other in St-Edouard, Dorchester West, Quebec at the time of the 1871 Canada Census. Hugh I is 87 years old at the time. George is found not far away in the same record. (George also had a son named Hugh, so that makes four (4) Hughs altogether!) By the time of the 1881 Canada Census, Hugh II and Hugh III are still living in St-Edouard. I'm told a lot of our Hurleys are buried at the Springbrook Protestant Church in Frampton, nearby.

According to information sent to me years ago by another Hurley descendant, Hugh I married Jane Jackson from County Down, Ireland. They did not know if they married there or in Canada, but they came to Canada around 1828. Hugh I was supposedly under the command of Lord Nelson in the battle of Trafalgar and received a land grant in Quebec in lieu of service rendered. Hugh II married Sarah Ann Sargeant. Hugh III married Mabelle Clare Medlar of McHenry County, Illinois.
