Hi Carolyn and other Quiggs from County Antrim. My Quigg ancestors came from Tonduff were they were land owners/farmers.
James Quigg (born 1894 in Dunseverick, County Antrim and his wife Mary (nee O'Hara) born 1798 were married in Bushmills in 1821 and immigrated to Australia arriving in 1848 with 8 of their 9 children. Their eldest daughter "Ann" arrived a couple of years prior with her husband John Mitchell.
The other children of James and Mary were:
Thomas Pelman Hood Quigg 1825
Catherine - 1828
James - 1832
Jane - 1840
Ellen - 1837
John - 1840
Neil - 1843
Francis - 1846
They settled in Canterbury, NSW. Some of their descendents now live in New Zealand ( I do have the details of them) however the majority stayed in Australia. I have been researching the Quiggs of County Antrim for some time and was fortunate enough to visit there in 2010.
I would in particular like any information on sibblings and parents of James and Mary who may have immigrated to America, Canada or Scotland. Some would probably stayed in Ireland. I understand there were only 6 farms in Tonduff all of which were owned by the Quigg Family. The land was never to be sold outside the Quigg name however it was over the years.
Any assistance or interest please post a response and I would like to share information.
