My name is Thomas Mc Padden (28th February, 1956 born Glasgow) son of Thomas Mc Padden (17th August 1923) whose father:Edward Patrick Mc Padden and mother: Mary Kate Flynn came from Leitrim - Drumkeeran.
My father was one of nine plus(John,Andrew,Stephen,Patrick,Michael,Mary,Elizabeth,Kate plus?).
Most of the family were born in Ireland, but my father was born in Glasgow.
My uncle Michael's family are known as McFadyean owing to an error in recording births at the official registrar.
Of the above only my uncle Andrew is alive.
I have four brothers:George,William,Gavin and Edward and one sister Helen.
My brother George's wife Susan has researched our family and collated some information from birth certificates etc.
There are a number of other Mc Paddens descended from the above.
Incidently, my aunt Elizabeth actually married a man by the name of Stephen Mc Padden from a different family!
I will contact my sister in law Susan to elicit more info.
If you want, please get back to me and we can talk some more.
