Patrick Gilligan
« on: Sunday 24 April 11 03:09 BST (UK) »
Can anybody help me in my task to the family background of Patrick Gilligan born 1858 in Ireland and Catherine Timoney born 1864 in Ireland.

Patrick and Catherine are my grandmothers parents her name was Susy (Susan) Gilligan who was born in Hutchesontown, Scotland along with her siblings James, Thomas, Ellen M, John and Catherine

the was family was found in 1901 living in 91 Commercial Street, Hutchesontown which states that Patrick Gilligan and Catherine Timoney where both born in Ireland possibly married in Ireland too.

Since Patrick's birth is before the start of full civil registration in Ireland (1864) so you would need to check for parish records to find baptism details for him and his family. To start this you first need to know the family religion and where they lived at the time, i.e. which parish, so you can check what records (if any) are available.

If Catherine was born in 1864, or later, then her birth should be included in civil records, but you would probably need to establish a bit more detail on her to confirm any births you might find. If they married in Ireland then there should also be a civil, marriage record for them - see these topics :

Scottish birth certificates list date and place of parents' marriage so you should be able to get that information and then will know where to search for the marriage (Ireland or Scotland).
If you don't have it already, Susan's birth certificate should be available from Scotland's People website.
Away sorting out DNA matches... I may be gone for some time many years!

Hi
I know you posted this enquiry years ago but just saw it.  My great grandmother, Bridget Gilligan had a brother, Patrick Gilligan.  I have been able to find his baptism record but nothing else. If he is who you are looking for his family came from Lumcloon, Cloghan via Birr, County Offaly (King's County) Mother: Mary O'Brien father James Gilligan.
This is a copy of the baptism record

I have some information on the Gilligan's of Lumcloon so get back to me if it is him.

Hi Margaret; it looks like we are related; my Gilligans are also from Lumcloon and the names match. Did your great grandmother have a brother John born 1851 who married an Anne Guinan? I'm interested in the information you have on the Gilligans from Lumcloon?
