Re: Country of Origin

Hi Christine, I read with interesty your info. re country of origin. It appears that much of your information conflicts with my own sources. eg. The Huguenots were French protestants under persecution who in fact fled to Ireland (not from Ireland)& to other countries to save their lives. I have never before heard the term "Black Irish" being associated with these Huguenots. Also I understand that the origins of Pogue are in fact Scottish & is derived from Pollock. The gaelic word Pogue (meaning kiss) is purely coincidental and not at all related to the origins of the name. As your information is so different to mine I wonder if you could e-mail me the source of your information. My family origins are County Cavan Ireland not far from Monaghanso we may have some connections. Hope to hear from you, Regards Grahame
