Looking for any information about the Hughes family from Redcross village and Britas bay Wicklow, and the Hayes family from Limerick, have found some birth/marriage records for both families, would be interested to know if any hughes still live there.

  • Dear Yorkshire Lass:

    Thank you for your post to the Ireland Reaching Out message board.

    There is a Hughes family living in Redcross in the 1911 Census.  The link is below:

    In addition, there is a James Hughes livingh in Redcross in another household in the 1911 Census:

    He is noted as living in Redcross town and is a brother-in-law to the family that he resides with.

    You may be able to trace this family further using the Civil registration records available for free on Irish Genealogy.  Births are available up to about 1918, Marriages to about 1940, and Deaths to about 1968.  The link to trace is below:

    The very best of luck with your research.  Please let us know if you have any further questions.

    Kind regards,

  • Hello, 

    I am starting to look into my families ancestry and came across this post. My Grandmother Margaret Callahan (maiden: Hughes) is originally from Redcross before moving to America in the early 1960s. She has 3 other sisters Mary (deceased), Lucy (Avoca), Kitty (deceased), and her brother Jack (Wicklow?). I am wondering if it is possible you are speaking about my grandmothers family. Im not too sure the names of her parents but could easily find out.

    Hi I have not come across a Margaret (nee Hughes) while researching the Hughes family, but have only been looking at my fathers immediate  relatives, Redcross is a small village and there did seem to be a few with the surname Hughes so they might be related in some way , I have traced my fathers great grandparents William and Bridget hughes and there is no mention of a Margaret, if you can find out her parents names that might be helpful.
