title A Prince Edward Island Repeal List for 1843: Part Two
creator Punch, Terrence M.
subject Island Magazine
subject Prince Edward Island Museum
description The following is the second installment of an article which appeared in Issue 21. The Repeal movement centered on an Irish constitutional issue, repeal of the Act of Union of 1801, which had extinguished the autonomous Irish Parliament and provided for the election of a fixed number of Irish MPs to the British Parliament. Born in Ireland, the campaign for Repeal flourished wherever communities of emigrant Irishmen gathered. From Halifax and St. John's, hotbeds of Repeal sentiment in the Atlantic region, the Repeal gospel was carried to Prince Edward Island in the early 1840s. Now, a century and a half later, lists of those who attended Repeal rallies provide important clues for genealogists and pose tantalizing questions for historians of 19th century Prince Edward Island.
