Garthlands from Co. Monaghan, Ireland
I'm interested in learning more about your Garthlands.
Are they from Scotland?Were they originally from Ireland.
Here's what I know about my Garthland ancestors.
My great, great, great, great grandmother was Catherine Garthland.She was born approx. 1800 in Co. Monaghan, Ireland (possibly Carrickmacross).She married an Owen Meechan or Meighan and they had my great great great grandmother Margaret.She married a James Kerr in Carrickmacross Co. Monaghan in 1848 and they moved to Glasgow, Scotland in the 1850s.
A Michael Garthland & his family moved to Glasgow too.They lived at the same address as the Kerrs on the 1861 Census.I don't know for sure but I assume this Michael was Margaret's uncle (Catherine Garthland's brother).There was also a John and Margaret Garthland that lived nearby also.One of Margaret Kerr's births was registered by a Margaret Garthland and it says she is the Aunt. That's all I know so far.
I look forward to hearing about your Garthlands.
