This is a real long shot....  My Great Grandfather, Bernard Hughes, was born in Armagh in 1841.  His parents were Dennis Hughes and Catherine O'Hare.

That's it I'm afraid.  Any takers?

  • Hi Gerard

    No luck finding Dennis & Catherine's marriage on rootsireland or but fmp has a few Dennises born around 1820 which might be worth a look (credit required).

    There are 78 Hughes in Armagh in the Tithe Applotments in 1827 (free at & 837 in Armagh in Griffiths Valuation 1848-64.

    Armagh is not included in the Irish Censuses of 1821, 31 or 41 but there are 3 Hughes in Armagh in 1851 (free at

    No luck on ancestry or Family Search either.

    If you google PRONI and select Name Search then enter Hughes Armagh and tick all the possible records you'll get 67 listings including a Denis in 1801 in Corr Armagh in the Pre-Admin Wills

  • Tried them all, but could not pick up any solid links through to my ancesters.  It's that one little hook you need to start you off.  I knew my info was not comprehensive enough, but thanks for your help, much appreciated.
