Searching for any information on John Caffey b. 1690. His son Michael b. 1720 married Mary Hooper b. 1726 and came to Dorchester, Maryland. John lived in Ulster, Ireland. Any information would be very helpful.

My grandmother was a Caffey and I've been trying to trace her line, I have some information but not sure if what I have is all correct. But it seems to start with Micheal Caffey who's father was John from Ulster, Ireland. I haven't been able to find anything on John except that which was stated by Micheal that John stayed in Ireland. Any information that you might have will be very helpful.

my ggrandfather was Thomas Andrew Caffey, gggrandfather Thomas Jackson Caffey, ggggrandfather Henry Caffey, gggggrandfather John Caffey, ggggggrandfather Micheal Caffey, gggggggrandfather John Caffey

My ggggrandfather, Charles was the brother of Henry. All i know of John was he was born about 1650 in Ireland and died in Ireland. I also am pretty sure he was a Linen Merchant. I do not know what his wifes name was. I have done some research, but haven't came up with anything else. I will let you know if i do.

In answer to your questions, his wife's name was Mary Hooper she too was born in Dublin, Ulster Province, Ireland about 1726. Her father was Bishop Hooper. This information can be found at the Alabama Department of Archives and History. Their grandson, John Caffey 1751-1826 a Revolutionary War Patriot, is my 5th great grandfather. His grandfather, Micheal was indeed a linen weaver. They migrated here to America before John's birth, first to New Jersey and eventually settling in Maryland.

Hi,My info on Mary Hooper is that she was a kinsman of Bishop John Hooper and was not her father. He was a Bishop and was burned at the stake on 9 Feb 1555.

I'm Jan Caffey, a direct descendant of the John Caffey who fought with the Maryland Militia. I'm very interested in more info on the John Caffey who was born in Ulster in 1690. Do you know where in Ulster?

I'd love to know more. I'm going to Ireland next month!

Thanks,
Jan Caffey

I'm also descended from John Caffey. I'm trying to find out where in Ireland Michael, his father, came from. All I have is Ulster. I'd love to know the county or city. Dublin is not in Ulster.
