We are doing our family tree and have traced some relatives back to either Co.Louth, Monaghan or Co.Armagh. His name was Peter Hanratty born in 1853, His father was also called Peter. From what we know he came to England with a couple of his brothers after stealing horses from his father. He later married Agnes Lafferty in Gateshead in 1873 and went on to have 3 children that we know of Catherine, peter and Mary Ellen. I do hope this might be of some help to you and would be grateful if you could let me know if you have any links with our family tree. THANKS.
