My wife had asked me to post two questions about her ancestors who were Protestant.
I am interested in finding out information about the Crilly House of Aughnacloy,County Tyrone. My 6th GGrandfather, James Pettigrew, built the house in the 1680s and I have references to it in family history books. My 5th GGrandfather, James Pettigrew, grew up in Crilly House. He and his wife Mary Cochran who grew up at an estate called the Grange and most of their children came to the colonies in 1740/1741 and my lineage in the United States begins from them with a marriage of their daughter Mary to John Verner(Sr.) later in the colonies. ]
Any information on the Crilly House or the Pettigrew or Cochran families would be appreciated and hopefully I will find some distant cousins through this post. We will be visiting the area soon.
Crilly House appears to be up for sale. Perhaps this is your chance to bring it back into your family’s ownership? In any event you may be able to visit it easily enough.
