IRELAND - Laughey families
« on: Thursday 30 June 05 10:34 BST (UK) »
 ???

The LAUGHEY/LAUGHY's - 2 brothers appear in the UK 1841 census both state that they are Woolcomber's b: Ireland.  Unfortunately at this time I have no idea which part of Ireland they originate from.

I would firstly like to know are there any passenger lists from Ireland to the UK before and up to 1841?  Would they have boarded a ship that visited the UK before going on to the USA?

They both settled and had families in Otley/Burley in Wharfedale, West Yorkshire, GB.

Any help greatly appreciated for a person who is just dipping her toes into Irish genealogy and would like to apologise for being a "bit thick!".  Look forward to any replies thank you.

regards

Sarah Johnson

Hi Thelma

Thanks very much for the info, family rumour has it that some of the Laugheys did go to the USA maybe the ones you have found could be ours.
I'm trying to find their origin as I am going over to Ireland in October to hunt them down!

Thanks again.

Other people reading this thread may like to know the answer to Sarah's query about passenger lists from Ireland to Britain. Between 1800 and 1922 Ireland was a part of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland which meant there was no need to keep records of internal movements. "Ship and Passenger Lists and Such" is worth reading as it gives an idea of the ports from which ships sailed from Ireland to Britain. www.rootsweb.com/~fianna/migrate/index.html

Hi Sarah,

I apologise for this being many years later than your original post and I hope this reaches you. I came across your message whilst googling your surname I am a Laughey living in the UK area you mentioned in your previous post. I can get the info out for you for the area of Ireland the family are from however to my best knowledge we are all now living in the UK (mostly West Yorkshire area) with Irish catholic roots. I believe the area that the Laughey's lived in was wexford, however I can double check that with my Grandad who seems to know the history pretty well.
