Seeking info. on my great-grandmother's family. She was Jane Mary Bagnall, born in1814 in the Geashill area. Her father was probably Isaac Bagnall, but may have been James. He was all or any of the following: Captain in the British army/land owner/sec. on an estate. He married Mary Ann Piggot. They had daughters Harriet, Jane, and Hannah. Hannah died in infancy. Mary Ann died at about age 38. Jane went to live with her maternal grandmother. When the grandmother died, Jane went with her uncle, Major Robert Bagnall, to live in Quebec, Canada. Jane's father may have remarried and had more children. Mary Ann Pigott's grandfather was a "Lord" Pigott who had been disinherited for marrying a poor rector's daughter. Mary Ann's father married a Quaker woman named Miss Neville. Jane's father may have been born in England and may have eloped with Mary Ann Pigott, because her family disapproved of the class difference. Does any of this sound familiar?
