Re: Tierney's from County Cavan Ire.

In Reply to: Tierney's from County Cavan Ire. by Katherine Tierney-Gaskill of 1258

I am descended from Peter Tierney born in Ireland circa 1835, who married Judith (or Julia) Gaffney, also of Ireland, b 1836.

Birth dates are derived from the 1881 census.
The IGI may say Peter was from Co. Cavan.

Both settled in North Yorkshire, England, and I have the rest of the tree.

But was it the same family?

This is the first posting I have seen for a Peter, and family names were commonly repeated.

Could you give me any more detail about the rest of the family, because I have never been able to make the link to Ireland.

There were Tierney's in Clifford (Nr Wetherby N. Yorks before the Great hunger).
