The Pat Quigley and Brigida Corcoran Family of Croghan, Killala Civil Parish, County Mayo, Ireland in Killala Catholic Church Records, the National Library of Ireland Census and Other Records

Croghan was a Townland of just over 180 acres when the Griffith's Valuation was conducted in 1856; there were no parcels of real economic significance and none were held by Corcorans. Sir W Roger Palmer Bart was the Landlord for 8 of the 11 parcels with Bourke Landlords holding the other three.

Research Observations: The Core of this family appears to have remained in Croghan, Killala Civil Parish, County Mayo, Ireland at least through the 1911 Ireland Census. Pat Quigley the father appears to have died some time between the 1901 and 1911 Ireland Census were conducted. Son Pat still appears single in 1911 as is daughter Ann. The question is, what became of John, Maria (if her father Gilmore is the Patt on this page) and Elleonora? I didn't find Corcorans from Croghan sponsoring any other Baptisms in this film.

Regarding Surname Cugley: There are two records I found of interest on familysearch.org in a compilation "Ireland Prison Registers 1790-1924." In 1885 a Pat Cugley age 17, residence Croghan was in Castlebar Prison for Assault. Then in 1886, a Pat Cugley age 62 was also listed in Castlebar Prison for Assault. The ages aren't exact but what is interesting is that the Townland of Croghan was reasonable small, could this be Pat Quigley and Son Pat? Please contact me if you feel that you are a descendant of this family or the Corcorans in this area! I would love to hear from you!
