Hi James.
I don't know for sure, as I've never been able to prove it, but...
It was always a family legend we were related to Willie Maley. My great-grandmother was a Maggie Maley whose father left Dublin for Cathcart (where Tom Maley lived) in 1870s. I've traced some names back to Dublin but not got any further really.
How far back can you trace? I've tried to do some work on your line but also not got so far back.
regds., Jim

Surnames: Maley
I am a grandson of both Willie and Tom Maley. My father and mother were cousins. Willie had two sons Willie (my father) and Charlie. If you are the Celtic Willie's great grandson then your father is presumably either Willie or Peter - my cousins. Did you know that Willie Maley had a season as a player in the late 1890's or early 1900's with one of the Manchester teams. Incidentally there were two other brothers of the great Willie's generation. Charles who was a well known priest in Nottingham, and Alec who also was in the Football management business. Alec (I think) had two sons Alec and Charles. The second Alec also had a son Alec and I think Charles had a son Charles The latter sons would be of my generation.
Tom Maley had several children one of whom was my mother and I have a sister Monica and a brother Willie. The only other living (Maley) descendants of the great Willie's generation as far as I know are from Tom his brother. Only one of his sons -Charles - had a family and this was an only son Tom. Tom does have a family and I think his son now lives in Inverness. This Charles followed the Maley football tradition by being secretary of Bradford City and Leicester City.
I look forward to hearing from you either in or out of this site.
Tom Maley

Surnames: Maley Wilson
I am Tom Maley's grandson. My mother was his daughter and she married her cousin who was the son of Willie Maley - Toms brother. I have a vague recollection of my mother talking about "Aunt Maggie" As far As I am aware the father of Tom and Willie ( and their brothers Charles and Alec0 was a Thomas Maley who was a Shoe maker to trade and who came to Cathcart when he was honorably discharged from the Royal Highland Fusiliersin 1869. He had been in the army for about 22 years and had seen service in the Crimea at Alma,Balaclava, Inkerman and Sebastopol. He had seen service in Malta and the West Indies thereafter. I think I am right in saying that he marrried when in Malta and that his sons were born in Portsmouth, W. Indies, Dublin and Cathcart respectively though which where I do not know.
He had joined the army in Limerick at the age of 17 in 1847 having been born in the Parish of Ennis and was discharged in 1869. He subsequently served as a Sergeant Instructor in the 3rd Renfrewshire Volunteer Battalion of the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders for a further 19 yrs being dicharged as unfit for further service on 2 April 1889 - a year or so after Glasgow Celtic were founded. His address at that time was Argyll Place Cathcart NB (North Britain!!!)
I wonder if your Maggie Maley is related to this soldier? What information have you got on her?

Hi Tom.
Can help you with some of your family which I researched a while ago.
William P. (Willie) was born in Ireland according to 1891 census. His brother Alec (Alexander Silve M.) was born in Cathcart. In 1891 they were living at Argyle Place, Cathcart.
I also have a copy of their father Thomas's death certificate. He died 7th May 1896 at home in Cathcart. His father is shown as Charles Maley (farmer) and Susan Macnamara.
Both census and death record indicate birth year for Thomas of 1830.

Now, my great-grandmother Margaret Christina Maley was born in Dublin in 1870, the daughter of James Maley/Anne Byrne. Her mother died shortly thereafter, James re-married and came to Scotland where they settled in Cathcart.
James was born about 1839 in an unidentified location of Ireland. He had various labouring jobs but was also an army pensioner.
He died 1885 and his death record shows parents as James Maley (or Mailey) and Esther Burns.
This last James Maley was a shoemaker.

Now there's not much connection apart from Ireland, army pensioners and shoemakers! But living in Cathcart may be more than a coincidence.
The closest tie possible might be that your Charles (father of Thomas) may have been a brother to my earliest James.
Any thoughts?
BTW, I can be contacted off list if easier. Remove the obvious from this email address and add .co.uk : jimNOSPAM@NOSPAMabsolutelymad
When I started lookig into your family, my mother made some calls to Maley's in the phone book. There was one interesting connection made - will have to dig that out.

regsd., Jim

Hi Emma.
That's good - nice to hear from you.

My difficulties in tracking back on the Maley line are still the same. I wonder if there is any documentary or other evidence you can dig up about Maley family members outside of the immediate line?
For instance, 2nd and 3rd cousins?

You'll no doubt have read the correspondence between myself and Tom - to whom you are definitely connected. cheers, jim

Dear Jim,
My name is Karen Maley. My Grandfather was Charles Joseph Maley. Married to Mary McCabe. He played for Celtic and then he was a trainer. His Uncle was William Maley. I believe that his fathers name was also Charles. He had an older brother Alec and a sister Rita. My fathers name was also Charles. His brothers are Brian and Desmond and sister Patricia. I have more information and my brother has an old book about Celtic which has info and pictures about Willie in it.
Hope to hear from you,
Karen
