Where is Inaughinstown Mullingar?
« on: Sunday 05 March 17 00:27 GMT (UK) »
From the 1864 Civil Records for Mullingar William Gilligan's Father  was from (what looks like) Inaughinstown. Struggling to find it. Which Catholic Churches would have been closest to Inaughinstown please?

Looks good heywood
I think it's just a different spelling of Froghanstown, have a look at Catherine's birth Fraughinstown

Thank you all. Pity the Church is not a little older. I believe/hope  the William born 1864 was the William Austin Gilligan, Father of the Gilligan English cricketers who I have recently found out were relatives. Third cousins here in NZ have verbal memory that when they toured NZ that they met as they were "cousins" My ancestor was over at Low town  and born circa 1819 and the Church records there do not start till the 1820's. Hoping that William senior is a younger brother to my Michael.

Hi KiwiHugh,

It  doesn't look as though there is a connection as yet.

Willie Austin Gilligan b 1864 London City - mother's name Reinking.

1871 https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:VRN5-GJB

1891https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:QZV2-5ZM

1901 https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:X9ZM-X8C

His parents are here in 1861
https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:Q2ML-QP11

James W was born in Kent  :-\

The marriage 1859   London  vol 1c pg 504  (Shoreditch)
James W Gilligan and Sophia Caroline Emmeline Elizabeth Reinking

I can see a likely James in 1851 but not with parents

 :-[ :-[ :-[ Hi All. Well Heywood you picked up on my rookie error. I assumed Willie Gilligan was William and when there was only one in England and four in Ireland and one of those was where we were from jumped to the WRONG conclusion. But no he WAS Willie! Had discovered my error over on the Surrey Board, then my internet connection decided to pack it in for the night. Assuming that James William Gilligan's Father was Born in Ireland. (no sign of him as a 11/12 year old in 1841 and by 1851 he was living alone) then those cricketers would have been 3rd cousins to my Grandmothers generation. I assume that as they had done well in England the family back in Ireland kept in contact. The Rich "English" Rellies. My Great and at least one of her Brothers left from London in 1874 so perhaps personel connections were forged then. About to do a post on the Kent board in the hope that James Baptism shows up in a Catholic Church (hopefully they were still Catholic)  in Kent. Before Facebook I struggled to keep up with my cousins, only knew a few 2nds wellish and 3rds were thru genealogy. Mind you I am chatting several times a week to a Gilligan 3rd at the far end of the Island as we try and piece together our rather large living Gilligan Clan and share our days.

Hello again,

Just to say it is best to link your threads if they are about the same people but in different places. As has already happened the same information has been searched and reported which is unnecessary.
We are not very good at keeping within boundaries and we tend to stray when searching  :)
