Travelling People / Looking for information on Loughran family
« on: Saturday 25 July 20 07:08 BST (UK)  »
A relative has told me that my Morgan ancestors came to England from Ireland with two other traveller families - Loughran and Miller. Northwest England seems to be their area. They probably came over around 1850.

Has anyone else come across Loughran as a travelling family? I know we are also connected to Howards / Knowles / Young and Richardson, but Loughran is a new one to me.

Hi everyone, I'm new here and have looked through some really interesting posts that seem to be connected to my family.

I'm looking for information - anecdotes, myths, legends, general insights into the lifestyle of my dad's family - anything at all. My Morgan family settled in Ulverston, Cumbria, but I recall visiting my dad's cousins in their caravans when I was young. Though I'm not yet 60 most of my immediate family have died... no-one to ask about or confirm vaguely remembered stories.

The names in the subject heading are my direct ancestors. I have no idea how the Millers and Morrisons fit in. Some of the names are added as a second or hyphenated name.  I know they travelled between Whitehaven / Ulverston / Kendal / Bentham / Lancaster and some lived on the Isle of Man for a while. Most were hawkers, mainly of 'pots' or 'earthenware'. Some were horse dealers.

All information is welcome.
