Before 1851 inheritance laws in Ontario were pretty archaic, and only eldest son could inherit. So in the record from the Second Heir and Devisee Commission, Cornelius Hishon is called the only son of Cornelius Hishon, who died in May 1841. Daughters could only inherit if there were no male heirs, which is why I did not know he had sisters.

I am doing some research on the settling of the Toronto Gore township for the bicentennial in 2019.

Mary Hayes remarried a John Fitzpatrick, and probably had more kids. Any way, a Patrick Hishon is also mentioned in the file as an assignee of Cornelius Hishon. Would that be a brother or father?
And are these Hishon related to the Perth County Hishon?

I'm trying to get an idea when the family settled in the Gore, and whether they had connections to teh other Irish RC families who settled nearby. John Curtis acted as a witness for Mary Fitzpatrick and stated he was well acquainted with Cornelius Hishon the elder.
