Gaggin's from Cork?

Surnames: Gaggin, Brabyn
I am trying to find a John Gaggin who i believe may have come from Cork. He was born somewhere between 1795 and 1802.
He came to Australia from England in 1819 on the ship Globe with his uncle Frederick Drennan and his cousins known as the Walsh sisters, i believe their names were Eliza and Ann though i'm not 100%. John went on to marry Mary Louisa Brabyn and have 9 or 10 children. Any information on John Gaggins life before he left for Australia would be much appreciated..

Hi tktab, I saw the Message Board enquiry you wrote last year and the fact that you had no replies. Did you ever manage to find out about John Gaggin before he arrived in Sydney with uncle Fred and the Walsh girls? I'm in the same bind you were in last year, with plenty of info from the Globe till when he "disappeared" to Victoria, but nothing before that. Regards Ian

Hi,

You will find the name could probably be Goggin. There are many Goggin family around the Skibbereen/Drimoleague area of Cork.

I have Goggin's in my family and I found most of them in the areas mentioned.

According to Griffith's valuation, which is over 50 years after your John Gaggin emigrated, there was a landlord named Christina Gaggin with property on Gaggin's Lane (off Military Road) in the parish of St Anne, Shandon in the Union of Cork in Co Cork.

There are a few other scattered Gaggins in Ballybane, Cloyne, Middleton; in Ballynamona, Kilmahon, Middleton; and Shanagarry South, also in Kilmahon.

The pickings are very slim for Gaggin. So I would not rule out Goggin in your search. Now Goggins, they are all over the place!

Griffith's was done over 50 years after your John Gaggin was born, sometime in the 1850's.

Thanks for your reply, and thanks also for the link to griffith-valuation.
Given the number of properties Christina Gaggin owned, I think I'll claim her as a relative for the time being!
