Good morning everyone,
I am adopted and reunited with my birth Pugh family ahdvery interested in family history in fact social history in general.
My maternal GG father William Pugh married a Maria MacNamara both born 1850 ish and emigrated to England in late 1800s with my g father Arthur Henry Pugh .
Both families had links to.the area and my GG father was a constable .Marias father might have been a teacher or farmer,
All family records have been lost and any help would be gratefully received .
I'll be in ROI soon and love your people and culture and nature .

William Pugh appeared to have served as a Constable in Sixmilebridge in 1881. Most of his service was in East County Galway -
