Surnames: Loughrey/Beattie
My grandfather William Loughrey was born in Derry about 1876 and was the son of Patrick Loughrey and Catherine Beattie both born about 1843. I have heard that the family (Loughrey) were originally from Rathmullan, however, haven't been able to trace anything more. Any possible help would be appreciated. Many thanks,
Brendan Delaney

Hi;
Thank you for your reply. Yes, we are of the same lineage. My mother was Mary Loughrey, her father was William Loughrey and his wife was Caroline Mackay who was Scottish, got married in Dublin, which is where I am from. William (my grandfather was born 1874 approx and Patrick (your great grandfather) was, I believe about 3 years older. I was in Derry a few years back and through a family friend of the Loughreys met another Patrick Loughrey who, like yourself, is a great-grandson of Patrick and Ellen. The family friend (Billy Doherty) also said that he understood that the Loughrey family originated in Rathmullan, Co. Donegal. I have gotten back as far as Patrick and Catherine Beattie and believe they were both born about 1843. that is as far as I have got, however, I'll go up to Derry fairly soon and have another try.
Please let me know if there is any info I might be able to tell more about.
Lovely to hear from you and I'll leave you to work out what the relationship between us is!
Kindest regards,
Brendan Delaney.

Surnames: Loughrey and McCaffery
My Loughrey family was listed in the Griffith's Valuation in Upper Rooskey in the Barony of Raphoe. There was James, John and Owen Loughrey living in adjoining land. It is apparent that they had close ties to Scotland. I believe James was my grt grt grt grandfather and his son Bernard Loughrey and wife Margaret McCaffrey (my grt grt grandfather was living in house #21) in the 1901 census. I am wondering if Laught might be close to Rathmullan as I noticed in records that a James Lowry along with oth er name presrnt in Upper Rooskey were frm the same area. Would love to know if any of these Loughrey's are part of the same family.
