Baptisms and Marriages in the
Catholic Parish of Aughnamullen West

These are baptisms and marriages of McGoughs and McGeoughs listed in the records of the Catholic parish of Aughnamullen West at Latton, county Monaghan, Ireland. I have also listed the baptisms in which a McGough or McGeough is listed as a sponsor. The microfilm at the National Library in Dublin from which this information was extracted is difficult to read and interpret. Some of these baptisms are listed by Ann McGeough Harney on her page: Baptisms for Aghnamullen West Parish, Co Monaghan. She lists baptisms from February 15, 1841, through December of 1859. I added entries to the end of the microfilm records in 1875. Because of difficulties in interpreting the microfilm of the handwritten records, some of my names differ from hers. Because of the helter-skelter way the records were kept, dates are hard to interpret, and the reader will find some differences between my interpretations of dates and those of Ann McGeough Harney.

The first names were usually written in the priest's version of Latin. In my tables based directly on the parish records, I have tried to duplicate the names as they were written. For example, James usually became Jacobus; John, Joannes or sometimes Johanness; Hugh, Hugo; Peter, Petrus; Mary, Maria; and Rose, Rosa.

Before 1868, the record showed only the date of baptism, the name of the child, and the names of the sponsors. My guess is that sometimes the names of the parents were used as sponsors. Sometimes the maiden name of the mother (or married sponsor) was used, and at other times the married name. At the beginning of 1868, additional spaces were added for the names of the father and mother and the name of the townland in which the parents lived (domicilium). I have changed the names of the townlands to the modern spellings.

The marriage records of the parish available on microfilm at the National Library in Dublin extend from February 2, 1841 to November 30, 1867. These marriages appear in the third table. In the "Comments" column of all the tables, I have noted cross-references between baptisms and marriages where I have found them.

On January 30, 2004, Peadar Murnane of Ballybay, Ireland, sent me a list he has compiled of "McGeough" baptisms in Latton from 1841 to 1865. This has enabled me to add several names to this table. The entries I made directly from the parish records try to preserve the different spelling of the surname in the original records, usually McGough, Magough, Mcgough, or McGeough. Peadar lists all variation of the surname as McGeough. When I note that an entry in this table is from Peadar Murnane's list, therefore, the spelling of the surname will always be McGeough—regardless of the spelling in the original record. Where Peadar has been able to interpret a name I could not read from the sometimes indecipherable microfilm copy of the parish records that I examined, and where his reading of a name differs from mine, I have noted that in the right hand column. Since Peadar is a native and noted historian of county Monaghan, his spellings are to be preferred (except as to McGough versus McGeough).

Peadar Murnane furnished me with a compilation of baptisms in the parish of Aughnamullen West at Latton arranged by family. In this compilation, all forms of McGough are spelled McGeough. I have arranged the families in the following table according to the alphabetical order of the mother's maiden name, then by chronological order of the births of the children. Peadar also furnished me with some handwritten notes showing McGeough baptisms in the parish of Aughnamullen East. The names from these note are includes in the following table with the names in italics. The names of persons whose births are recorded in other sources are also printed in italics. I have omitted families that were started after 1900.

The International Genealogical Index will be found under "Search for Ancestors" on the Family Search website of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. When I have found in that index a name in the table below, I have noted that information in the "Comments" column.

Mother's Name Father's Name Child's Name Baptism Date Comments
Mary Brines Peter McGeough Ann McGeough November 28, 1870 Spelled Briens in compilation. The baptismal records of Latton parish show an Anne McGeoagh born to Peter McGeoagh and Hilary Brines who was baptized on November 28, 1870, in the townland of Tattybrack. Hillary should probably be Mary. Peter McGeough may be the Peter McGough (261) who is shown as leasing a house, office, and 9 acres of land at £6/15s/ from Thomas Hamilton in Garrybane in 1858.
    Hugh McGeough April 6, 1872 Spelled Brians in compilation. The IGI spells the name Bryans and shows the birth date as April 17, 1872.
