Maria, Rigly/Quigly?
« on: Saturday 06 October 18 15:17 BST (UK) »
Can someone please tell me what this says?! I'm reading Rigly or Quigly. It's an Irish name and I have never heard of Quigly before but can't find anything using Rigly. Or am I completely wrong?!

Also think it's a 'Q'.
My father used to write a 'Q' like that - even though he wasn't Irish!
Lane, Burgess: Cheshire. Finney, Rogers, Gilman:Derbys
Cochran, Nicol, Paton, Bruce:Scotland. Bertolle:London
Bainbridge, Christman, Jeffs: Staffs
