Shared note
About the children of Robert Pigott and Margaret Coghlan It is our good fortune that in the 1880's Helena Pigott took up a legal action in regard to the will of her late mother, Margaret Coghlan (Pigott). The documentation associated with this case provides vital evidence about who is who among the children of the family of RP and MC, also some useful facts about Margaret Coughlan herself. Firstly, the following baptism records are available from "Ireland Roman Catholic Parish Baptisms": 17/09/1843 - Michaelum in Adare, sponsors Andreas Coghlan & Maria Coghlan 26/09/1844 - Emilia in Adare, sp Michl? & Maria Coghlan (NB. not in index, film only) 09/01/1848 - Maria in Adare, sponsors Jacobo Pigott & Ellena Coghlan 22/12/1850 - Maria in Adare, sponsors Thomas Coghlan & Elizabeth Coghlan 05/06/1853 - Margarita in Adare, sponsors Jacobus Pigot & Margarita Pigot 11/06/1854 - Eliza in Adare, sponsors Patritius Pigot & Helena Coghlan 15/01/1857 - Michaelem in Croagh, sponsors Joannes & Joanna Pigott 20/06/1861 - Ellena in Croagh, sponsors ? Pigott & Catharina?os?ell In addition, the following other children are known but have no known baptism record: about 1844 - Thomas about 1859 - Kathleen about 1861 - Mary Philomena about 1864 - Elizabeth Mary Ann Secondly, from the legal case, Helena describes herself as "Helena Pigott, formerly of St Georges Rd Nth Fitzroy, now of 552 Drummond St Carlton, ....Spinster...." in 1897. At that time only one of the Pigott sisters in Melbourne was unmarried and that person went on to become Sister Mary Loyola. Helena lists the following siblings plus herself as the "(Margaret Coughlan's) only surviving next of kin Tom Pigott, Amelia Pigott, Mary Pigott, Margaret Pigott, Elizabeth Pigott, Kate Pigott, Michael Pigott." Thirdly, we know that Mary Philomena and Helena(Ellena) were not the same person, because the will of older sister Margaret names the executors as: Thomas Smith Mary Philomena Taylor Helena Pigott As regards Robert Pigott, he is still alive when Margaret died in 1880 as she is described as "married woman", but has died by 1897 as he is not listed in the next of kin. Also, in 1888 Helena testified that Robert Pigott had survived Margaret Coghlan but had since died. So, which of the baptised children became which adult? Looking at each in turn: Michaelum b. 1843 - there is no further evidence of this person, unless he became Thomas. Records that exist for Thomas are the 1901 census where his age is given as 47, and the 1911 census where his age is 67. If the latter is correct that would match a birth about 1843, whereas a birth in 1853 would conflict with the birth of Margarita. Thomas - as well as the census records, there is a death of a Thomas Pigott 28/03/1918, St Johns Hospital and a further place of "Milltown Croagh", so this might be the Thomas in question. Bachelor, aged 69, farmer - Thomas was a bachelor farmer but the age is questionable. Emilia b. 1844 - this record doesn't appear in indexes but can be seen on the scanned register image for 26/Sep/1844. Presumably this is Amelia who appears in the 1901 census (age given as 41) and dies in 1902 (age given as 46) - Amelia Pigott from Ballanguile (dated 10/Sep/1902.) Maria b. 1848 - because the name has been used again, it's likely that this child died in infancy. Maria b. 1850 - No further records appear for this name. Could this be the child that later became Mary Philomena? Margarita b. 1853 - presumably this is Margaret who later became Margaret Smith and died in Aust in 1917 aged 63. Eliza b. 1854 - no further records exist for an Eliza. Could this be Mary Philomena (later Taylor) or Elizabeth Mary Ann (later Cameron)? Mary Philomena died in 1935 aged 74, this implies birth around 1860 but no such birth or baptism can be found in the records. No age given in death notices. Elizabeth gave her age as 26 at marriage in 1890 and her age was given as 69 in 1933, both of these imply birth in 1864 but no baptism record has been found. Mary Philomena - no identifiable baptism record. Mary was married to John James Taylor in 1891 but no age information available. At death in 1935 her age is given as 74, implying birth in 1860, so perhaps Mary Philomena was baptised Eliza? Elizabeth Mary Ann - no identifiable baptism record. At marriage in 1890 she gives her age as 26, implying birth in 1864. Possibly she could have been baptised Eliza in 1854 but that's a bit of a stretch. At her death in 1933, age is given as 69 also implying birth in 1864. Michaelem b. 1857 - this is Michael Augustine who married Kate Whyte and emigrated to Aust shortly after the death of his mother. Ellena b. 1861 - this is Helena (on the baptism entry, the name could easily be read as either Ellena or Hellena) who later became Sister Mary Loyola. Died 1934 age given as 70, though, in a list of Irish Nuns in Victoria her first name is given as Mary with birth year of 1864, entered service in 1907, and "possibly born 1872".
