McCaughey One-Name Study

This page is a place to display in formation I’ve found as part of a one-name study of the name McCaughey, and it’s variants.

The page grew out of my interest in my own branch of McCaugheys, who originated in County Tyrone, Ireland and immigrated to Rhode Island in 1873. I then began becoming interested in other McCaugheys in the United States.
In every US census from 1870-1940, Rhode Island has had a higher percentage of McCaugheys than any other state.

I then collected information from the most popular Irish databases, censuses, and census substitutes.

Content from databases can be found in the links on the right.

This is an ongoing project and will be updated as new information is collected and new connections are made. I hope to eventually start building family trees from other McCaughey families in the United States besides my own.
