Kelleher
« on: Tuesday 22 July 08 22:50 BST (UK) »
After posting on the London forum, I am hoping to get some information here.  I am looking for a family called Kelleher,  fathers name is Hugh Gough Kelleher and he had a daughter called Catherine Elizabeth who was born about 1867.  this is all I have to go on apart from the story that my father in law had relatives living in Cork.  Catherine Elizabeth was his grandmother.

I know this is a shot in the dark, but I have searched all the census and BMD for England with no success. 

Hope someone can help

You could try looking for Catherine's birth in IGI (www.familysearch.org)- they have many, not all, Irish births 1864-c1882 on the site. If you do find her mother's Christian name you can do a parents search there and see if there are any other siblings listed.

Hi there

my grandfather was a Hugh (Goff) Kelleher, his father was Dan Hugh Dan Kelleher and his father was Hugh Kelleher married to a Mary Corkery. The family were known as The Goff Kellehers (their nickname). They were from the Townland of Gurranenaguppal in the Parish of Clondrohid. My great grandfather Dan was born in 1861 and had a sister called Kate Kelleher.

Could this be th family you are looking for.
