To understand the double Canavan connection of the Hart and Duhn families, we turn from James Canavan to his aunt Honora Canavan, the daughter of Anthony Canavan and Catherine Kirby. As you can see on the upper right of this family tree, Honora married Patrick Doyle.

Our genealogy plot thickens when one of Honora Canavan Doyle’s two daughters, Anna Doyle, married Anthony Canavan’s second son, John Canavan.

As you can see in this family tree, John Canavan’s marriage to the daughter of his cousin Honora Canavan Doyle brought about the third of our five our double Canavan connections.
