About

Welcome all,

My name is Joe Buggy (Seosamh Ó Bogaigh as gaeilge) and I’m a professional genealogist from Ireland who lives and works in New York City. If you have any research needs my website is www.familyrecordsgenealogy.com and I can be contacted at joe@familyrecordsgenealogy.com

This blog is concerned with the origins, history, spread and contemporary developments in relation to the Buggy surname/last name. I have posted some of the most interesting research as permanent pages and will blog about future developments as they come to fruition. I welcome documented information from anyone that can contribute to the study of the Buggy name.

    HI Joe, I am from Sydney Australia,married to a Buggy girl,my wife’s GGG grandfather, Loughlin Buggy(B 1816) and his brother Thomas came to Sydney in 1841,they were from Ballyreget, County Kilkenny , Ireland,there were four brothers from this family who left Ireland,two came to Australia and two to USA ,so says the family history.

    Loughlin and Thomas parents were James Buggy and Catherine,nee Ryan,and my research prior to 1841 indictes only two other persions of that ‘Buggy’ name ,had arrived in the colony,the two male persons were convicts.
    I have not been able to trace any family history In Ireland as yet!

    Regards

    PS My Mothers ancestors are from Wicklow, the famous Byrne Clan,three Byrne boys were political prisoners sent to Australia in the early 1800′s,after the rebellion in 1798.
