From and other web sources:

Joseph Polk and wife Alicia Rogers and their family, accompanied by Pat Hamilton and wife Margery Rogers and their family, with brother in law William George Rogers and wife Elizabeth McKenzie (Mac?) and their family left Mayo from Sligo on the brigantine Jane under Master Barwise, May 12 1831 and arrived at Quebec City June 16 1831 (as recorded in the Quebec Mercury for that date). There were a total of 143 passengers on board the brig Jane. From Quebec City they where transported by river barge to Bytown now Ottawa. From Bytown by the Rideau Canal to Smith Falls where William's the oldest son Thomas walked through the forest to New Boyne. Here he negotiated with Ephram Jackson for the purchase of land. Jackson was a United Loyalist who had come up from the United States. William's cabin was erected on Lot 7, which sided the town of Newboyne. He also owned lot 8 and lot nine Concession of Bastard, County of Leeds. These people all settled in the Newboyne, Leeds area.

The Hamiltons and the Polks also settled in this area, the Polks and Rogers remained there and died there and are buried in St. Peters Anglican Church Cemetery. The Hamiltons moved west to Manitoba and established a settlement of Hamiltons near Neepawa Manitoba. There are offspring of the Rogers still in the area of Newboyne and Portland Ontario.

Apparently the Rogers & Hamilton families intermarried several times. According to Patrick and Margery's marriage information on the LDS site, she was from Glanedagh (or Glenedagh), Co. Mayo and he was from Furlough, County Mayo. Their marriage took place October 5, 1809 in Crossmolina, Mayo. A granddaughter of George Hamilton who married Annie Rogers states George was the son of William James Hamilton and Hannah Jane who was also a Hamilton, and that William was the son of Patrick and Marjery.

Alice's sister Marjery and her husband Patrick Hamilton married September 10, 1815 at Crossmolina Mayo and
had two children: Alicia Hamilton and William James Hamilton (1825-unknown).

Alice's brother William George Rogers (1784 -1848) and his wife Elizabeth (Bessie) McKenzie ( - 1900) had children: John, James, William, George, Samuel, Thomas, Anna, Esther, Joseph, Alicia Jane. Their first born Thomas was born March 5, 1810. It is believed that William and Bessie were married in the Church of Ireland at Ardnaree. Ardnaree parish of Kilmoremoy is near to Castleconor on the east side of the River Moy and that there is said to be a "ROGERS HOUSE" in the vicinity of Castleconor. Castleconor is located north of Ballina on the east side of the river "MOY" near the border between Mayo and Sligo were they sailed from when coming to Canada.

It is rumored that William and his McKenzie mother-in-law had some grievance which was settled in a court of law to the benefit of his mother-in-law. It is said to settle the grievance William had to relinquish all his chattels and in so doing the decision was made to come to Canada.
