« on: Monday 11 October 10 16:16 BST (UK) »
i am posting this for my mum. she is tracing her grandmothers family denigan, from longford ireland. all she has managed to find is that richard denigan her gr grandfather was originally from longford born 1882, in 1901 he is living in london and married a lady called amy ann revell.  richard was with the irish gaurds for a while. we know his father is james denigan from ireland as it says on richards marriage certificate. we have richards marriage record and his military career but we really need his fathers details and if at all possible his mothers who we dont even kno her name.

Irish civil registration index is online and shows only 1 birth for a Richard Denigan in Co. Longford- Jan./Mar.1882 Longford registration district volume 3 page 214.
If you think this is the correct person then you can order the certificate to get names of both parents and exact date and place of birth.
See here for details on birth certificates and how to order them-

There are 4 James Denigan entries on the 1901 census for Longford. 2 are too young to be directly relevant but 2, aged 74 & 68 might be Richard's father, assuming he was still alive. The birth cert, if it's the right one, will give you the mother's name and so you can use that to identify the right family in the census.

My name is Michael Denigan and today I became rather excited after doing a Google search with my family name Denigan, and came across a posting on this website regarding a James Denigan from Ireland who was married to a lady called Amy Ann Revell. My father, James William Denigan, who died some years ago had a father, James Denigan who was married to an Amy Revell which is why I was excited to discover this posting after so many years of not knowing my father's family history. I hope that you may be able to help me find any living relatives. I have been living mostly in New Zealand since 1962.

Kind regards
Michael Denigan
