Brian, Where our Gilligans originated from is questionable. All I know is Patrick Gilligan married a Margaret McGregor and that their son James Hume Gilligan, who was born c. 1829 in Halifax, Nova Scotia,was married into our White family. James Hume Gilligan was married in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island and he and his wife Clarinda went to Australia in 1856 on the Electra. After her death he moved to New Zealand. Please notify me if I can be of any more help...sorry I don't have any more info.
