You might want to check in Quebec. In the 1851 census, Charles and family are in Grenville Township, Deux Montagnes County, Canada East. Charles was born in Ireland ca 1789 and is listed as Episcopalian. The Ag schedule says he is on 50 acres of Lot 7 in the 3rd Concession. A note by the census taker says that the land is poor in this area (too rocky for good tillage) and those living there are very poor and there is not one school in the area and due to the population being very isolated ignorance is a problem.
