LAGAN
« on: Wednesday 03 June 20 20:28 BST (UK) »
Hi,

I am having trouble finding birth records for Neil LAGAN and his wife Catherine (I do not know her maiden surname).

Neil was born circa 1855 in Ireland but I do not know a specific county.
Catherine was born circa 1858 in Ireland, but I, again, do not know a specific county.

The couple later moved to Gateshead, Durham, England, where they had their children.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Ryan

Hello,

The name seems to vary with Logan/Lagan in the various census or birth records.
However, here is the marriage from Free BMD

June quarter 1874 Gateshead Vol 10a Pg 1098
Neil Logan and Catherine Hall
