My Irish ancestors........

Post by Vihar2203 » 06 Jan 2007, 17:08

My Grandad mother's maiden name was REIGH, Mary Reigh, and was born in Liverpool. Her fathers name was Richard Reigh. I now know that Richard came fromm Co Wexford and was born in 1863-ish. I have also recieved a copy of the the crew list on the ship "Chantrey", from the 1891 census and Richard was a member of the crew. They sailed to Liverpool which is where Richard settled. In 1892 he married Catherine O'Brien in Liverpool. Catherine's parents, Edward O'Brien and Mary Stafford also originate from Co Wexford. My Grandma was born in Liverpool in 1906.
I would be very thankful if anyone could point me in the right direction or give any assistance to help me with my quest.
My Dads side of the family also originate from Ireland but not sure where from yet, Quinn is a popular name :shock:

Many thanks

Tony Quinn
