County Derry, Ireland


Valued Member
Bendigo, Victoria
Is anyone familiar with Irish records in both County Clare and County Derry?

I'm in Australia.

I have William Laughlan who married Jane Stewart possibly around the 1820s
and had two sons that I know of William b 1827, Joseph b 1830. My problem is I have seen the name spelt Lacklan Lauchline Lagan Laugland etc etc even McLaughlan, which makes it hard. I believe William Laughlan snr was born about 1800 and Jane (seen this spelt Stuart) b approx 1800, William Jnr could have been born at Drumachose, Derry.

In County Clare, I have Michael George Gleeson (no dob) who married Anne Tierney, Anne born abt 1807.
Their children were born
Mary Gleeson abt 1832 Tipperary
Ann Gleeson abt 1834 Roscrea, Tipperary
Eliza b 1840 Ennis Cty Clare
Frances Kathleen Gleeson b 1842 Ennis Cty Clare
Alice (no dob)

I hope someone can help
