Thank you for replying to our query. We know about Bishop William Lanigan, Bishop of Goldbourne but have not managed to find a link to the other Lanigans we are working on. We have quite a bit on Bishop James Lanigan, Ossory. His line is to be found in Kilmanagh, Callan, Attinoe, and Pottlerath – all Kilkenny. Many of these Lanigans do seem to interlink but there are also Church of Ireland lines. William of Cloneygoose, Tipp, Will dated 1722 had at least one son who conformed very early and who made a marriage with a new settler family by the name of Dunsterville. Do you have the names of the seven children of Thomas Lanigan and Bridget Dalton, with sponsors? Or have you found any Wills? We don’t have (yet) a copy of the Bishop William’s Will? Do you have this and did he leave anything back into family left in Ireland?
