Surname: Cuddy. General info request
« on: Saturday 23 June 07 00:41 BST (UK) »
Hi all,

Trying to get more info on my Great, great, great grandfather Lawrence Cuddy (1811 ish- 1848) who was born in Ireland, and settled in Liverpool at some point after marrying his Shropshire-born wife Elizabeth, presumably in the late/early 1820's/30's (Going on the birth of their first child).

Does anybody have any general info on the origins of the name ie. Prevalence in certain Irish counties on which I could base my research? Are there any databases that might disclose a more precise birth location, other than Ireland? He was a Shipwright by trade, so, are there perhaps any records relating to this that might reveal any more information?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Regards

Cheers for that Ronnie,

It's not looking like I'm going to get very far at all with this line of my tree.

Just a thought though:

I know I'm restricted on available info that I have ie. Entry on 1841 UK Census and one of his childrens birth certs, however, might UK voting registers reveal any further info such as a more precise place of birth, from which I could try to move on further?

Are there any viewable Irish voting registers?

Hi there! I don't know if this helps, but I have ancestors with that same surname. The only place I've traced them to is Belfast. My fourth great grandfather is David Cuddy, born sometime around 1790.

Cuddy, Scots for Cuthbert, Cuddy Ducks=Eiders, a connection to St Cuthbert!

The Cuddy are strongly represented in a charity Ulster Historical Foundation whose website is
https://www.ancestryireland.com/ has 102 Cuddy listed in Co Antrim and down starting in 1665!  yes sixteen 1665 so you have much work to do Credits required but index free. but no Laurence/Lawrence found .     

i am biased to belfast so lets hope thsi works out
the earliest street directories include
http://www.lennonwylie.co.uk
1806
Cuddy, John, glazier, paint, oil and glass store, 25 Church lane.
1808
Cuddy, John, glazier, paint, oil & glass store, 20 Church Lane
Cuddy, William, plumber, 13 Marlbro' Street (Marlboro')
1819
Cuddy, James, glazier & dealer in oils & colours, 25 Church Lane


is your Lawrence Cuddy b 1811 whose entry in the enumerators handwriting in the 1841  Census gives both he and Elizabeth aged 30  and although hand ticked across occupation reads with difficulty shipwright who is also on family search I realize the ages change in later census
you must be the Paul listed on http://www.GenesReunited.co.uk/tree/results/cuddy/lawrence?memberkey=0&yearofbirthrange=0

Census
1911 Co Antrim 39 for later relatives
1911 Co Down 15 for later relatives
