Subject: [scots-origins] Re: Hugh Doherty of Buncrana, Donegal to Govan,
just wanted to wish you well with your search. I am a Doherty
originally ( my granfather was Michael John Doherty from Donegal). I
know how many Doherty's there are out there and I hope you manage to
trace your family history.

>Hugh Doherty of Buncrana Donegal, being piggy-backed by his mother
> I've heard a new family tale that has my great grandfather,
Frances (Fanny) part-way to Scotland after being evicted by the
English from her farm. Hugh was born around 1858, so must have been
quite young, perhaps 2 at the time. They apparently made it to
Glasgow, where his mother died and lies buried in Govan to this day.
Another tale has it that she was pregnant at the time of this
journey, and this was the reason she'd been evicted. Hugh reportedly
had a sister who later emigrated to the United States and began a
confectionery business, perhaps in New York. But this last bit is
just a rumour that was handed down--don't know the origin.
>Ann Docherty, born to a Fanny Docherty (no maiden name given; birth
> I have found a birth in the Clyde district of Glasgow for a Mary
reported by a neighbour, Jane Muir). The birth is listed in 1860 as
illegitimate. I have also found a death for a Fanny Doherty in Govan,
age 48, maiden name McHugh, parents Thomas McHugh and Margaret
Gallacher; widow to Hugh Doherty (farm labourer), and the informant
is listed as son Hugh. These details fit what I know for certain of
my great grandfather's parentage (not sure about the grandparents).
What I don't know for certain is whether this Mary Ann Docherty born
in Clyde 1860 is his sister, and where she may have ended up. I
can't find anyone in the census--not for 1861, nor 1871! For the
piggy-back story to be true, then Hugh would have been quite young,
and at least in Glasgow for the 1871 census. Hugh moved down to
Liverpool by 1888, as he then married my great gran, Elizabeth Ann
Quinn. If any of this rings a bell for anyone, please get
> in touch! I have been searching, of course, on scotlandspeople,and I have already posted this message on Origins.net. Just hoping
to find a Glasgow connection here. Cheers, Edie.
