About Our Family Research

My family dates back to the flight of the Earls, when the Irish Chief, Hugh Maguire, had to flee Ireland. Some members continued to reside in Clones, County Monaghan and were landowners. During the industrial revolution serveral members of the family moved to Belfast in search of fame and fortune, hence my existence. Of these, some have emigrated to New Jersey, USA and, more recently, Western Australia.The castle at Enniskillen, County Fermanagh was the original seat of the Maguire Clan and still exists today.
