Tighe Family, Edinburgh

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date

Russell Report 2 Aug 2012 13:51

I am trying to trace the family history of my mother's family, the Tighe family of Edinburgh. Her name is Marion Annette Tighe and her father's name was Charles Mather Tighe (born 1900, died 1975). Her mother was Mary Cairns (born 1903, died 1961). Charles' father's name was Francis (1858-1934) and his father was Terence (c1832 - death unknown date). These last two are a bit sketchy and could be firmed up (or disputed). If you have any family connections or have come across the family in your research I would be grateful for any help you can offer.

Thanks

Russell Taylor

Plenty of variation on the transcription of Surname.. also Teague..however Janes surname seems to be consistant so far..!

It would maybe be worth looking at Francis McKEAN (relative) aged 16 living with Terence and family 1881 census...possibly a brother of Jane (deceased)


William McGrath (1881 census) was the husband of Elizabeth Tighe..


John Joseph Mcgrath 15th Feb 1881 St Giles Edinburgh

Thanks to all for digging up these details. Looks like I need to look at Ireland for older history since Terence Tighe is reported to have come over from Ireland in the Census. Can anyone help me with this?

Theres a match for a Terence Tigh born 1831 on here, you have to buy credits to view

Great, but Terence J Tighe is what I have - born 1832 but this is from the Census so is not exactly reliable.
