My maternal great grandfather, John Noonan, came to Scotland in the 1860s. He may have come here via Rock Ferry in England. He settled in Dundee where he married a Catherine Logan at St Mary's Church on 31st December 1869 (Hogmany).
He was born at Springvale, Kildorrery in early 1842 and was baptised there on 11 February that year. His father was James Noonan and his mother Johanna Duane. I think that James Noonan may have been baptised in Cahirduggan, Doneraile on 3rd April 1819. Similarly, Johanna Duane may have been baptised in Cornahinch, Doneraile on 10 March 1824. I have all the certificates and evidence for the following; they were married in Kildorrery on 17th March 1840 and had a family of six children. John (my maternal great grandfather, who came to Dundee) was baptised in 1842, Thomas (1844), Denis (1847), Catherine (1849), Margaret (1852) and Johanna (1854). James Noonan is mentioned in John's death certificate at Newport-on-Tay, Fife, Scotland as being a Land Steward.
Apart from John coming to Scotland, I have failed to find any further leads with regards my family in Kildorrery. No other members came to Scotland. Whether they came to England or Wales, I have no idea. Perhaps they had to emigrate.
I would be most interested in any information that would add to my family story.
