MCHUGH Family History

Recorded in many spellings as shown below, this is a famous Irish surname, although one probably of Manx and maybe Norse origins. Certainly it a derivative of the 11th century Mac Aodha, meaning the son of Aodh. This was a personal name meaning fire, and associated with the pagan god.Aodha. In Ireland the clan was originally divided into two main septs or branches, one at Tuam and the other in Connemara. In the modern era, that is after 1660 at least fifteen spellings of the name have developed, and no doubt others will be dicovered.

Joseph McHugh

Hello. Looking for information on my great grandfather Henry McHugh. He was reportedly born around 1855-1858 in New Brunswick, son of John McHugh and Bridget McCullough. He eventually migrated South and married Plooma Geneva Curtis and had a son Harry Vernon McHugh. I have not been able to find any birth records in New Brunswick for him. Any help would be much appreciated.

My grandpa, Thomas Morton McHugh, was born c. 1883-1887 in Ballyhaunis, County Mayo. He emigrated to North America around 1911 and then married Alice Kate Maunder in Vancouver B.C. in 1913. My father, Thomas Roland McHugh was born in Vancouver B.C. and then they both moved to Seattle, Washington and became U.S. citizens. I'm trying to locate the exact date and parents names of Thomas Morton McHugh. I think he may have had a sister Bridget or maybe a mom named Bridget. I'm unable to determine which records are truly his.

Hi My name is Bernadette McHugh. Im the oldest of 6 brothers and 4 sisters. The main forename in our family is Myles.

Their must be a strong link with Ireland and Scotland. Im sure I have loads of relatives out there.
