      The site is an excellent, perhaps the best website, on the Corrigan family. There are statistically few Corrigan’s in the American South but we are here and I was wondering how those deserving members can be added to the list of distinguished members. I have in mind The Honorable Timothy Corrigan, Federal district Judge for the Middle District of Florida, he resides in Jacksonville, Florida with his wife of Nancy Meade Corrigan. They have two grown sons. Full information can be found on the US District Court website. Also Lese Corrigan, an artist and promoter of the arts in the region, an expert on the art movement know as the Charleston Renaissance. She operates the Corrigan Gallery in Charleston and there are a number of entries on the internet about her art, a gallery website and articles on her activities. There are others but I do not know the criteria you use. Keep up the good work.

    My name is Kerry Corrigan and know very little of my heritage. I’ve really enjoyed browsing through your site.

    Is there anyway I can get involved and maybe learn more about my extended family? We have a strong Corrigan gene as we all look very alike.



    • Robert Corrigan says:

      Kerry, sorry for taking so long to respond.  Thanks for the comments and for the offer and will keep it in mind.  I wish someone out there would consider starting a Clan Association and then I could hand this site over as legacy to all that I have found out about the family.

    I am Frances James, Admin of the Corrigan yDNA Project.

    We welcome all men of the name Corrigan/Carrigan/Currigan and variants to join our project.  We use yDNA as a tool with our traditional genealogy to find common ancestry and related families.  It can also show who you are not related to, eliminating false leads.

    We have a group of Corrigan men who match well with Maguires from Fermanagh, proving the ancinet history of a common descent.

    I am searching for descendants of Bernard Corrigan of Kansas City, who married Mary “Mamie” Shannon (his first wife). Mamie was older sister to my g-g-grandmother, Carrie Shannon Koogle. 

    • Carol Corrigan says:

      Bernard and Mary are my great grandparents. Their son Edward is my grandfather and his 6th daughter, Elizabeth Joan Corrigan, is my mother. I am enjoying this site so very much. Carol Corrigan

    Hi Robert – Well done on your extensive work.  For those of us who come new to the search for members of the clan it is a heart warming place.  I have recently returned from my first visit to Ireland and am inspired to find those distant Irish relations … but it seems they disappeared under the radar.  so I am hoping that someone in the clan may help.  My Grandfathers name was Leslie Arthur Michael Corrigan Hollis. He was born in Southern Ireland (no town name or county given) on the 21st of May 1901. He was baptised on the 18th of February (no year written) in Johannesburg, South Africa.  His mother Dorothy Cumberland, was we think, but cannot prove, married to Edgar Arthur Corrigan.  We can find no trace of Edgar.  She married David Hollis in 1907.
    My question is which port did they (Edgar and Dorothy) leave Ireland – was it Belfast or Corbh (Queenstown).  Do you know of any ships that may have been on their way to Australia somewhere between 1898 and 1900?  Was Edgar a soldier? Was he a prisoner? Any input would be great.  Many thanks.  Jo Ann Saner.

  10. Corrigan Conklin says:

    Hello my name is Corrigan Conklin (my first name is the maiden name of my great-grandmother, Patricia Corrigan) and I was wondering if you ever found anything about Michael Beresford Corrigan, and whether or not he is actually the son of Sir Dominic John Corrigan? My family has been trying to figure this out for generations. My aunt has some yDNA from a Corrigan man who is descended from MBC, and that could be helpful in finding out if he actually is Sir Dominic’s son.

    • Fjames says:

      i Corrigan, as far. I know we have not had a known male Corrigan relative of Sir Dominic yDNA tested. Even if MBC matched a known male Corrigan relative of Sir D, it is not proff that MBC was his son, just that they share a common male Corrigan ancestor, which could be in previous generations.

    Hi, I looked through your famous Corrigan’s and I didn’t see Nancy Corrigan. She was born in Owenduff, Mayo and emigrated to Cleveland, Ohio I when she was 17. She became a Powers Model and used her earnings to become a pilot. She was the 2nd woman to become a commercial pilot in the US and taught pilots during WWII for the Air Force.

  12. Phyllis McCrory Rowan says:

    Hello! Thank-you for the valuable information on your site. I am researching
    the Irish and diaspora family of Mary Corrigan ( 1821- 1847), second wife of John McCarthy (1819- 1879). If any readers can shed some light on her, I would welcome this very much. Her first son, Charles, called after his paternal
    grandfather, Charles McCarthy, married Polly Bell. Her other sons were John
    (1849-1869), James who died in 1876. On the 4th Feb. 1885 in Greencastle Chapel, Belfast, County Antrim, her daughter, Edith Ellen McCarthy (1855-1923) married my great-grandfather, Joseph McCrory (1857-1906). Wishing
    joy and success to you and all your readers in quest of their family heritage,

    • Hi Phyllis, Charles and Polly were my grand parents, although I did not know them. My father was Tom, Dundalk. I have some family info but most of it I got from Marie so you may already have most of it. I have John’s bible, but very little info in it. Anyhow delighted yo make contact, your ???? cousin Charley

    Je cherche des informations sur ALFRED LIFF qui fut adopté par James CORRIGAN, Bonsecours (Montebello) en 1901. ALFRED LIFF est arrivé au Canada en 1889.


  14. I really appreciate you making this website. I’m a Corrigan, Peter Corrigan the third. I’ve been born and have lived in New York my whole life but I’ve always felt a strong sensation to branch out to the rest of my kin. I do graphic and web design and am 19 in college. If any man of our clan needs help with a website I’d gladly help my kin for free.

    Anyways out of curiosity how tall, skin tone and what build do you Corrigans have? I’m 19 and 6ft1 yet I’m the shortest of my Fathers family (tallest 6ft 7-my uncle). We all have black hair except for one of my uncles who’s got the McKenna blonde hair genes. Our theory is Viking blood may have intercepted our gene pool explaining the height. It’s so hard to track lineage but we are all of Southern Ireland and America. Any thoughts or connections?

  15. So here’s a family history story that I’ll treat you all too. For reasons unknown, most likely financial during the mid to late 19th century my family had ties with the U.S.A. My great great great grandfather left Ireland and became a citizen of the u.s in New York but after 3 years he left for his home land. There was a longstanding feud with the British and through persuasion of the heart he rejoined the Irish in war against the British. After sometime (somewhere between 1-12 months) he was captured by British infantry and scheduled to be hanged, made an example of. He sat imprisoned without sleep until he was called forth. He and 3 others had a noose around their neck awaiting death for Ireland when a British officer interrupted just seconds before the hanging. Because of his dual citizenship with the United States he was pardoned and (I believe) deported back to the U.S. The purpose of me telling this story (and it is true though certain details have slipped through time) is to demonstrate the vigor of a Corrigan. I think we should all fight like he did and follow our hearts. With wisdom and Vigor!

    Hi I saw the icon of the two men in the circle and was wondering what the relation the the name Corrigan or the crest was. Could you please clarify this as I think it would be great to use as a tattoo.

  17. Andrew Corrigan says:

    Hey guys, just after my dad’s birth, he was adopted by Noel Corrigan. Unfortunately the family in the local area don’t really talk much so I’ve never really been able to find out much about the heritage of my namesake. This website is an amazing resource, and I know it’s old and no one’s probably paid this much attention to the site since last year. But I just wanted to say thanks to the site creator. As well as hi to the rest of the family tree.

  18. Amanda says:

    I was a love child or a corrigan man. I don’t remember him but I loved my grandmother, his mom. Nice to find some historical background. Thank you.

Got something to say? Go for it!
