Biggs family of northern County Tipperary, Ireland

Posted: 21 Oct 2013 6:09PM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Biggs, Murphy, Morphy, Whistler, Blackwell, Slack
John Murphy [or Morphy] (c1770-c1820) [son of Andrew Murphy (c1745-c1796) and Deborah Whistler (c1750-?)] of Nenagh, County Tipperary, Ireland, married Elizabeth Biggs (c1776-ca1850) in 1771. According to family tradition, Elizabeth Biggs was a member of a gentry family in northern County Tipperary. The Biggs family had several seats in northern County Tipperary, including: Castle Biggs, Drominagh, Terryglass; Bellevue House, Borrisokane; and Ashley Park, Ardcroney.

John Murphy died in Barbados and Elizabth Biggs (Murphy) died in Blanshard Township, Perth County, Ontario, Canada. John and Elizabeth had two daughters: 1) Margaret Murphy (c1798-c1860), who married William Slack (1794-1846) [son of Henry Slack (c1761-1824)] of Ringroe, Derrynasling (Ardcroney near Borrisokane), County Tipperary, Ireland; they settled in Blanshard County, Perth County, c1843; and 2) Elizabeth Biggs Murphy (c1805-1888), who married John Blackwell c1800-1865); they settled in London Township, Middlesex County, Ontario (also lived in Blanshard Township, Perth County, Ontario) and had 21 children; some descedants moved to the USA.

Would be glad to share information with researchers of these Blackwell, Murphy (Morphy), Biggs, Slack or Whistler lines.
