Mcgee family name Kilkenny?
« on: Thursday 26 May 16 16:57 BST (UK) »
Hi, I know this may be a total longshot. I have some ancestors with surname Mcgee which up until today I could not identify whereabouts in Ireland they came from.
I have been told today by a relative that Kilkenny had been mentioned by my late grandmother as the home of her ancestors. Unfortunately, I cannot narrow it down any further but if anyone could confirm if the name Mcgee was in any area in Kilkenny so I could possibly investigate futher.
The family I am looking for are shown in the 1841 uk census in Derby as
John McGee born abt 1786 Ireland
Hannah       born abt 1801   "
Anne          born abt 1826    "
Thomas      born abt 1831    "
Edward       born abt 1833    "
Catherine    born abt 1835 Derby
Mary McLoughlin born abt 1823  Ireland (nee Mcgee married to Patrick in 1841 UK)
Patrick McLoughlin

He would only be listed if his farm was big enough to pay a tithe, but at least it shows the name was in the county.
