Our Leaves & Branches

Michael Coyle b. c. 1805 Ireland

The photograph, above, was taken April 2012 during my trip there to research my Irish roots.

Michael Coyle, born  in Ireland is, at this time, our primary ancestor in the Coyle line.  He married Mary Cunningham on 31 August 1833 in County Westmeath, Ireland. The witnesses at their wedding were Bridget Cunningham [most likely the bride’s sister] and Terence Brady [in the future their son would marry a Brady].

In 1837 Michael was still in County Westmeath, according to the voters register.After that they moved across the county border to County Cavan where their four children were born: James Coyle, Patrick Coyle, Margaret Coyle and Michael Coyle.
