My ancestors - Pigott - Contents

Pigott of Limerick city

Spelt "Pigott" consistently in almost all records.

I now think that Pigott, born 1788, died 1873, buried with the O'Maras, was the Pigott who married Ebrill, NOT his father, for these reasons:
  1. He is described as "so much older than she was". If his father was born 1788, he would be the same age as her or even younger, especially given that he was the "youngest son".
  2. His death is registered by "Ellen Pigott" of Mungret St (same place he died). His wife is alive at death. And we know that the younger Pigott's wife was Ellen.
  3. It makes sense for him to be bur with his daughter's new family. Less likely if this is his grand-daughter's new family.
So our line starts with:

Padraig Pigott,
born est c.1750,
comfortable farmer, very respected, and a breeder of good horses,
an Irish speaker, wore seal-skin cap,
had issue:

  1. (other sons) Pigott.

  2. Patrick Pigott,
    youngest son, and his father's favourite,
    born 1788.
