Mills is another planter name from Ulster or the north of Ireland where it is quite numerous, but is found all over the UK and Ireland based on being 'of the mill'.

Good morning from Australia, Rod. My great great grandmother, Malvina Amanda Fitz Allan Tuckett is recorded as being Irish. She married William Burns Amory on St. Kitts and had children - Reginald McCourtney Amory, William Charles Mortimor Amory 1861, Annie Amory 1864, Ida Amory Helen Amory 1862. Do you have any information on Malvina Tuckett.

Cheers Pat Pack.

Reply Rhodenoantof

Humble apologies for slow response

Mills is an English name that came to the north of Ireland during the 17th century plantations. It is quite numerous these days in Ulster.

Do you know what trade your grandfather followed?

Cheers

Apologies for not replying sooner. Where is St Elizabeth please? Mills is not a very common name in Ireland. Without more info hard to say where he came from.

Hi Rod,
I am descended from Edward Thomas McHugh who was born in Castries City St Lucia in 1849.
His father, Robert Garraway McHugh was Treasurer of St Lucia and sometime Administrator.
For some reason, Edward came to Australia but we don't know why or much about him.
If anyone has any information about him, it would be much appreciated
Many thanks
Ian McHugh

Re Pat Pack
Sorry, don't recognise Tuckett as Irish. That doesn't mean of course that someone of that English name might not have been born in Ireland

Re Ian McHugh
I am afraid that I cannot add any knowledge of Edward. McHugh is mainly a Galway name - but regionally found in North Connaght and West Ulster

Hi -

My 3 x g/grandfather was Mark John Dyer, born on Tortola (BVI). I am unsure whether the family originated from Ireland or SW England as I have been unable to trace his roots further back. However there is a possibility that he is related to the Dyers on Montserrat whom I am fairly certain were from Ireland.

Regards
Lesear

As you say Dyer may be Irish or English. If rooted in Montserrat I agree that Irish quite probable.

In Ireland one finds MacDyer and Dyer. The latter is mainly found in Sligo and Roscommon. Also occurs as Diver sometimes
