In Reply to: COLCLOUGH, Wm - Wiarton Ont. by Karen of 480

William Colclough born 26 May 1879 in Ontario was the son of John Colclough and Elizabeth Young, married c1867, possibly in Goderich Twp., Huron County or perhaps Bruce County, Ontario.

His father, John Colclough was born c1843 in Goderich Twp., Huron County, Ontario. He was the son of William Colclough, b. c1810, Ireland, married by 1837, probably in Goderich Twp., Margaret Cole, b. c 1810, Ontario.

His grandfather, William Colclough, b. c1810, Ireland was the son of William Colclough and Eleanor Noble of Ireland. William Colclough Jr. emigrated from Kyle, Kilkenny, Ireland and was among the early settlers in Goderich Twp. (1832-1836).

Children of John Colclough and Elizabeth Young (per census records);

1.       Sarah, b. c1868, Ontario (perhaps in Kinloss Twp., Bruce County)
2.       Madeline, b. c1870, Ontario (perhaps in Kinloss Twp., Bruce County)
3.       Elizabeth, b. c1873, Ontario (perhaps in Kinloss Twp., Bruce County)
4.       Matilda, b. c1874, Ontario (perhaps in Kinloss Twp., Bruce County)
5.       Louise, b. c1877, Ontario (perhaps in Kinloss Twp., Bruce County)
6.       William J. Colclough, b. May 26, 1879 Ontario (perhaps in Kinloss Twp., Bruce County or possibly in Grey Twp., Huron County, Ontario
7.       Jennie, b. July 26, 1882, Grey Twp., Huron County, Ontario (probably)

There was a John Colclough, 27 (born c1843, Ontario) reported as the Head of Family in the 1871 Canada census returns for Kinloss Twp., Bruce County, Ontario and this could be William’s father.

The family was reported as COLELOUGH in the 1881 Canada census returns for Grey Twp., Huron Centre, Ontario at:

This is all I have on your William Colclough, b. May 26, 1879 Ontario but it should help your research. I have nothing on Elizabeth Young’s ancestors.
