Here is your previous post re some of your family names.

I have linked it because you mention geographical areas rather than ‘Northwest England ’.

It helps if you post references that you already have, e.g. census information so that people can look at the right people but not repeat what you already have.

Do you have Loughran in your family or is this just an open question re the Loughran name.


Here is your post to me so you can better understand my question.

Does anyone on RootsChat *Chat* or do you all just give advice on how to write a proper post?

In case you don't get it, that was a rhetorical question. I've already unsubscribed to this website.

You can use familysearch  for free searches of the UK census to find any traveller families of that surname.

Perhaps then you can spot connections


Really? So can I also use my full access account to search too?

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.
