Halifax Register Repeal Lists

Transcribed by Christine Gorman from an article by Terrence M. Punch, GC (C).

The Island Magazine Volume 20, in 1986 and Volume 21, 1987, in articles by Terrence M. Punch, CG [C], published lists of Prince Edward Islanders who supported the Repeal Movement in Ireland in the early 1840s. These lists had been published originally in the Halifax Register. Edward Whelan, the editor moved to Charlottetown in 1843, and continued publishing lists of Repealers in the Palladium. The lists from the Palladium are already on the Island Register.

While I am submitting these lists from The Island Magazine to Dave Hunter’s Island Register, the original research is not mine. I am indebted to Mr. Terry Punch for having given his permission for this submission. Irish and Island genealogists are greatly indebted to him.
