McNally Summary

This McNally family, earlier known as the McAnally family, is first found in Magherafelt, Londonderry, Northern Ireland. Thomas McAnally married Jane Hudson, also of Magherafelt, in 1879 at Woods Chapel, Magherafelt. Very soon after the wedding they  left Ireland for Whitehaven and settled there, having two children and managing as best they could in the poorest part of the town where, it seems, there was work for Thomas.
