Caffery/McCaffery Family of Glasgow
« on: Wednesday 14 February 18 21:55 GMT (UK) »
Hello

My 2xgreat aunt Mary Ann Casey was born on 13 April 1860 in Co Armagh to Francis Casey and Mary Gollogy she married John James Caffery/McCaffery in Co Armagh in 1880

They had six children all born in Co Armagh
Thomas Francis- 1883
Patrick - 1885- 7 Feb 1886 Died in Co Armagh
Bridget - 1887 -
Margaret - 1891 -
Ellen - 1893-
Catherine- 1895-

I am not sure when the family moved to Glasgow however John James came back to Dorsey, Co Armagh to purchase land for the family to move back to Ireland however during his visit he died as a result of carbon dioxide his address was listed as:
11 Tennant Street, Glasgow

Thomas Francis came back to Co Armagh in 1921 and married Margaret Ellen Bennett
His address was still listed as:
11 Tennant Street
His sister Catherine McCaffery was a witness at the marriage

I can't find the family in the census of Ireland for 1901 so they must of been in Glasgow at that stage

I have try to find them on Scotland people on the census records and have not had much luck
So I was wondering if anyone could help me find them, also when did Mary Ann died and what happen to her

Many Thanks to anyone for information :)

Hi there.

The 1905 Valuation Rolls show that 11 Tennant Street is multi occupancy (a tenement most likely). Showing in the listing is a John MACCAFFERTY, tenant. Also a Charles MACLAFFERTY (could he be connected and name indexed differently?).

Searching the 1901 census by address, I can't see John and family but Charles is there (if it help you to check whether he is connected):

Charles Mclafferty 34 Fitter's Lab b. Ireland
Margaret Mclafferty 32 b. Ireland
John Mclafferty 10 b. Glasgow
Jane Mclafferty 3 b. Glasgow
Margaret Cocharine 33 boarder
William Berry 25 boarder
Michael Kelly 22 boarder

Address: 11 Tennant St, Glasgow/St Rollox

Charles shows at this address on the 1895 Valuation Rolls.

Had John died by 1915? Mary shows as Mrs Mary MACCAFFERY, tenant at 11 Tennant Street in the 1915 - 1935 Valuation Rolls. The last Valuation Rolls available online are for 1935. It gives a date to start searching for a possible death for her. Have had a quick look for her death on www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk but haven't yet seen anything likely for her.
