Philip Hayes & Bridget Brennan / Patrick Sullivan & Anastasia Hayes

(*Philip Hayes – Anastasia Hayes – Catherine Sullivan – Jeremiah Walden McGillivray)

Philip HAYES* was born c. 1790 in the Parish of Kilmalock, County Wexford (formerly part of the Roman Catholic parish of Crossabeg). According to Samuel Lewis’ 1849 A Topographical Dictionary of Ireland, Kilmalock (or Kilmalog) was a parish “in the union of Enniscorthy, barony of Ballaghkeen, county of Wexford, province of Leinster…In the Roman Catholic divisions, the parish forms part of the liberty of Crossabeg.” (p. 173)

There was a Philip Hays baptised 2 Aug 1786 in the Diocese of Ferns (another name for Crossabeg), the son of Patrick HAYES and Catherine SINNOT, which could be a match (from the Ireland Roman Catholic Parish Baptisms via the National Library of Ireland). Patrick and Catherine were married 13 Feb 1779 in the Diocese of Ferns. And there is a Philip Hayes listed in Erin’s Sons: Irish Arrivals in Atlantic Canada, 1761-1853 as arriving in Newfoundland in 1813, which could also be a match.

Philip married Bridget BRENNAN* on 9 Dec 1813 at the Roman Catholic Basillica in St. John’s, Newfoundland. The witnesses were Daniel Mahany and Mary McDonald. Wileen Keough, in her work The Slender Thread: Irish Women on the Southern Avalon, 1750-1860, briefly references the couple:

“Philip Hays from Kilmaback, Wexford, married Bridget Brennan, first-generation Irish Newfoundland daughter of James and Anstice Brennan of Cape Broyle, in 1813; the couple remained in Bridget’s home community.” (p. 20)

As Keough mentions, Bridget was the daughter of James BRENNAN*, who appears on the 1800 Census of Cap Broyle with Anstice* and three children: John (born c. 1789), Bridget (born c. 1793) and Catherine (born c. 1796). There is a James Brennan who appears on the “List of names of all Masters, Servants, and Dieters residing in the District of Ferryland for the Winter of 1799 & Spring 1800” as a “dieter” in the service of Richard DOWER. According to the Dictionary of Newfoundland English, a dieter is “a) one who receives winter board and accommodation against the promise of cash or service in the next fishing season; b) one engaged in, in return for board, in the preparatory work of the fishing season.” (p. 140)

With regards to Bridget’s siblings, Catherine appears as a sponsor on her niece Anastasia Hayes’ baptismal record, and there is a Catherine Brennan who appears as a witness to the marriage of Mary Brennan (from Cape Broyle) and Patrick Graety on 17 May 1820 – could be a relation. [NOTE: The name “Brennan” sometimes appears in the record as “Brinnion”]

Bridget and Philip had two children (that I could find evidence of), both born in Newfoundland – Anastasia and Michael. The only trace I can find of Michael is his baptismal record dated 31 Oct 1822. Information on Anastasia and her descendants follows below.

Bridget and Philip relocated to Cape Breton sometime after the birth of their children, and according to The Early Sullivans of Cape Breton, 1800-1850 by Maureen Burton McNeil, Philip made several land transfers on 6 Oct 1938 – one large piece of land on Lingan Road to his daughter Anastasia, and another 50 acres of land “on the southside of Lingan Road, from the road to the water” to Anastasia’s husband, Patrick Sullivan. (p. 3)

Philip died 19 Mar 1864 and was buried in Lingan. On the 1881 census, the widowed Bridget is living in the household of a Luke Gallivan in Sydney, and her status is listed as a pauper. She died 19 Aug 1882 and was buried in Lingan.

Anastasia HAYES* baptized 12 Dec 1819 in Newfoundland. (Anstice is the Old English/Irish form of Anastasia, so she could have been named after her maternal grandmother.) Married Patrick SULLIVAN* on 28 Nov 1838 in Cape Breton. Patrick was born circa 1811 in Ireland, according to the 1871 census. There is a Patrick Sullivan listed in Erin’s Sons: Irish Arrivals in Atlantic Canada, 1761-1853 arriving in Atlantic Canada in 1823, accompanied by a John Sullivan, which could be a match.

Patrick and Anastasia appear on the 1838 Cape Breton census as living in the “Lingan Road and Kilkenny” district. According to the 1867 marriage record of his daughter Catherine, Patrick was a farmer. Anastasia died sometime before 1871, where Patrick appears on the 1871 census as a widower, living in the household of his son Michael. Patrick died in 1880 and is buried in the King Edward St. Pioneer Cemetery in Glace Bay.

Anastasia and Patrick had four children:

  • Anna SULLIVAN born 2 Apr 1843. Immigrated to the United States and married firstly Unknown BLODGET. Married secondly James FAGAN on 22 Feb 1887 in Franklin, Ohio. In 1900, they were living in Groveport, and their household included two of James’ grandsons. James’ occupation is listed as farmer. In 1910, they were still living in Groveport with James’ son William and several grandchildren. In 1920, Anna was a widow and living with two of her step-grandsons. In 1930, she was a resident of St. Anthony’s Hospital in Columbus. Anna died 21 Jan 1931 in Columbus. (Patrick and Anastasia are listed as her parents on her death certificate.)
  • Catherine (Kate) SULLIVAN* born Jun 1843 in Glace Bay. Married James Duncan MCGILLIVRAY*, a coal cutter, on 24 Feb 1868 in Glace Bay. In 1871, the couple was living in Lingan, and James was working as a miner. In 1881, James was operating a pilot boat. James died 10 Mar 1896 in Low Point. His obituary (found as a clipping in the family Bible) reads:

    James D. McGillivray, one of the most energetic and successful, yet most modest and reticent pilots of Sydney harbor, died at his home on the 10th inst. The deceased, who was the son of the late Duncan McGillivray, was born at Low Point in the year 1846, where, after spending a comparatively short yet useful life, he died the death of a model Christian in the 50th year of his age. From his boyhood till about a year before his death his constitution was one of the strongest, and viewed from a physical standpoint he might well have been taken as a model of manly vigor and strength. His occupation, which was one of the most trying and which proved more than a match for many a man before, seemed to act only as a valued invigorator to his already robust constitution.

    But an unseen, an unexpected agency was in the mean time doing its deadly work. It was soon found that his only trouble which to all appearances resembled asthma, was nothing short of a serious fatty degeneration of the heart. This complaint, which had been stealing on him gradually, caused him during the last months of his life most severe and excruciating suffering. Yet he bore this with true Christian fortitude and patience praying incessantly not that his life should be spared, but that should it please God to remove him from this “vale of tears”, that mercy be granted to his immortal soul. Having received the last rites of the church on the morning of the day of his death, he passed away at 11 p.m., saying almost with his last breath, “O Lord, be merciful to me a sinner.” May his soul rest in peace.

    To his sorrowing wife and large family we extend our sincere and heartfelt sympathy in this their loss of a model and loving husband and a kind and affectionate father. The pilots of Sydney harbor lost one of their best friends and co-workers in his death, for, through thick and thin, through storm and calm, “Jimmy” was the first adviser to be questioned and in all cases, by following his opinions they were never led to do what was wrong. They will wait many a day for his equal.

    After James’ death, Catherine appears on the 1901 census as the head of the household in Lingan, consisting of herself and seven of her children. In 1911, she was living with some of her younger children and her husband’s siblings John and Joanna MCGILLIVRAY. Catherine died 26 Jan 1915 in Low Point. She and James had children:
    • Michael MCGILLIVRAY born 04 Nov 1868 in Low Point. According to The History of Donald McGillivray and his Descendants by Francis Xavier McGillivray, Michael died in 1898 in Montana of smallpox.

      Dr. Sullivan had a distinguished medical career. After graduated from McGill, he set up shop in Glace Bay and did post-graduate studies in the UK and Paris. Not only was he very successful as a surgeon and general practitioner, he was also Medical Health Officer for Glace Bay from 1901-1908 and again from 1923-1925, a marine doctor from 1901-1912, and the Dean of Medical Staff at St. Joseph’s Hospital.

      Glace Bay was the centre of a large mining region, so there were frequent industrial accidents to deal with. Dr. Sullivan was also a champion for public health, fighting against tuberculosis, infant mortality, and unsanitary dairy practices. He also advocated for school inspections, pasteurization of milk, and stricter sanitation practices. According to Kathleen MacKenzie’s thesis on public health in Cape Breton, he was “one of the more outspoken physicians of his time.” (p. 53)
