Thomas Mcquiggan was born in Ireland in 1805 in Dublin. Hewas a silkweaver and moved to England sometime about 1830. He married Margaret Mcconnell in Manchester in1831. The family then moved to Macclesfield Cheshire sometime before the 1851 census. His wife died in 1861. I could not find him on the 1871 census so sent for his death certificate. He died in the macclesfield workhousein 1878. The death certificate also stated that he had awife named Sophia. I could not find a marriage for him in england over thcorresponding period. Idid however find a marriage between a Sophia Butler and Thomas Mcguigan in 1869 in Dublin. They had two children Anastasia born1870 and Francis born 1871. also found various records for thomas , Sophia and the children in the workhose in Macclesfield. I can trace them till 1881 but lose them after that. Would anybody have these people in their family tree and could confirm they are the people I am looking for. My family is descended from thomas daughter Margaret born in Manchester in 1839. Thank you. I
