|The author of this site hails from the North of England, where Tierneys from Ireland were living in the Wetherby area of North Yorkshire since before the potato famine of 1840s.|
There is a link with the Steads of North Yorkshire when Peter Tierney was married to Margaret Stead.
Anyone with an interest in or any knowledge about Tierneys who migrated to North Yorkshire, particularly the Wetherby / Boston Spa / Harrogate environs is very welcome to email me.
So far I have been unable to trace the Tierney family in Ireland from which Peter Tierney, born abt. 1835 came.
Peter married Judith, or Julia Gaffney, also from Ireland.
