Name of creator
Patrick Devlin was originally from Ireland. He made his first appearance in the Kingston area as a land holder on Wolfe Island in 1845 with the lease of the west half of lot eight in the ninth concession from the Kirkpatrick family. By 1885 Devlin had purchased the entirety of lot eight. In 1861 he purchased the south west quarter of lot five in the tenth concession, as well, Devlin purchased two lots in the village of Marysville in 1867 and 1869.
Devlin and his wife Elizabeth had two daughters: Mary Jane and Rosella. Both girls received their education at St. Mary's of the Lake and later at the Loretto Convent in Belleville. Mary Jane became a sister at the Convent, Sister Mary Lucretia (Leocrita?), and Rosella died, unmarried, in 1890.
Patrick Devlin died January 9, 1885.
This sous-fonds forms part of the Kirkpatrick-Nickle legal collection. The documents came from the law firm of Nickle and Nickle, which was founded by Thomas Kirkpatrick in 1828, and which continued under various names (Kirkpatrick Nickle) and with various partners until 1968. The Devlin estate papers were deposited, along with the papers of other clients of the firm, in Queen's University Archives during the 1960's.
Scope and content
The sous-fonds consists of correspondence, legal documents, insurance policies and accounts.
