I'am looking for any family related to Mary Alice Bagnall was born to George Bagnall and a woman with a maiden name of McCarten on 2/21/1892 in County Down Ireland. She married Timothy Joseph Griffin on 9-17-1912 in Chicago, Il. She had a brother named George and another named Joseph. Any information on them would be appreciated.

You posted awhile ago, hope they still notify you that i have replied. I took a look at and found the following:

Sex: M
Birth: 2 Jan 1867
0830, Donaghmore, Down, Ireland
Father: David BAGNALL
Mother: Rose Ann MCAVOY

I tried to find anything at all for a David Bagnall in Ireland (marriage/birth) with no luck. My own Bagnall's are from England, so I gave that a try and found one that fits age-wise. His birth is:

Sex: M
Christening: 5 Dec 1852
St. Michael Queenhithe, London, London, England
Father: Thomas BAGNALL
Mother: Elizabeth

Now, don't take that as gold, but I wanted to mention it because Bagnall is such an uncommon name. I have posted this before but you may be interested in knowing that in 1881 a James Williams was hung in Newgate prison in London for the murder of an Elizabeth Bagnall !!!!

Yes there is a Bagnallstown in Ireland, although it is not spelt the same.
I am from Dublin a my family have been for years. I recently did a bit of research into my family tree and went as far back as the rebellion in Ireland in 1798. I also aquired a listing of land owners in my area going back over 150 years and was pleased to find out that land, which is still in our family, was owned by Bagnall's back then. It makes for interesting reading and would love to follow it up.
You might email me back with some details about your maiden name and areas in Ireland it was connected to and I will see if I can come up with anything.
Any bye for now and looking forward to hearing from you.

I am related to the Bagnall's of Robertstown, Lowtown, Naas. Are any of your Bagnalls from the same area? Found some related, but they arent interested in genealogy so it is hard to get them to write. I am in the USA. Anxious to hear from you.

Is that Naas in County Kildare?

My earliest known Bagnall was in Dunleary (DunLaoghaire), County Dublin in the early 1800s. Those of us working on the family have some hints that he came from the Bagnall group that was in the Tullamore area of Kings County (County Offaly), but we have not been able to find proof of that so we keep looking. It's interesting that if yours were in Kildare, that would be right between Dublin and Offaly.

If you want to learn more of the Tullamore Bagnalls and the details of my ancestor, John Bagnall, of Dunleary, you might want to try a good website on those families. It is maintained by Ray Parsons and is

I would like to learn more names/dates/details of your ancestors to see if any of the names are familiar. A cousin of mine has quite a database compiled from several Bagnall pedigrees, both Irish and English, and has posted that information also. I believe it is on either Rootsweb or
