The Doggart Family Genealogy

Welcome

The Doggart Family Tree

Welcome to the Doggart Family Tree website.

The origins of the name Doggart are unknown. There have been some educated guesses of course and it is most likely that the name is of Scottish origin although at present the furthest documented research goes back to North Down in Northern Ireland particularly the Newtownards area.

The most distant ancestor on this website is Adam Doggart b. 1785 and the vast majority of people will link to him. However at the moment there are a few additional branches that do not yet connect up. To see the full list of branches choose "Lists, Branches" from the main menu or click here.

There is some evidence that Adam's parents were Arthur Doggart and Elizabeth McKibben. If anybody knows more about this I would love to hear from you.

Also my personal DNA research suggests a Scottish origin. Although this could be back many more generations from Adam and Arthur's time.

Getting Started

If you are wondering where to start I would suggest either using the Search function (Top right of the page) or the "Default Individual" at the top of the right hand column.

If you haven't registered the "Default individual" will be my great grandfather Adam Doggart born around 1848 in Glasgow. Once you have registered you can set your own personal "Default Individual".

Adding people to the tree

If you have something to add or change contact me either through the website or directly by email so we can discuss it. We can either give you "Editor" privileges or you can tell me what needs adding and I can do it for you.

Privacy

Privacy options are enabled which means that visitors to the site who are not registered will not be able to see anything about living or recently deceased people. Census details are also only available to registered users.

Registered users of the site are permitted to see details of living people if they are fairly closely related.

I will only accept registration requests if you have a connection to the Doggart family tree.

Much of the information contained here is information that is publically available anyway e.g. Civil Registration, Census etc data but if you think I am displaying something that I shouldn't be please get in touch.

Website Sources

As well as offical records much information comes from corresponding with other Doggarts around the world and especially from Russell Doggart and his impressive "900 individuals" creation. If you find I have used some of your hard work and haven't given credit then please get in touch and hopefully we can sort it out.

DNA

I have recently discovered the joys of DNA testing from the point of view of Genealogy. I don't know enough yet to be able to start a Doggart DNA project but watch this space. My DNA has suggested a link to Scotland . I will be adding more about this later...

Doggett

A few Doggarts are actually Doggetts and not related (in recent times anyway). Ones that I know of being...

George Catham Doggart 1787-1870

Mary Doggart 1822-1899 married Richard Scoggin

 

Presbyterians

The following notes are from http://www.presbyterianireland.org

Until 1782 it was illegal for Presbyterian ministers to conduct marriages and not until 1845 were all restrictions lifted on marriages performed by Presbyterian ministers.   Therefore it is always advisable to check the registers of the local Church of Ireland parish up to the early 19th century.  Also, as very few Presbyterian churches had or have a graveyard attached, the practice of recording burials was not widespread and the number of registers recording these details are few.

It is important to note that there are several strands of Presbyterianism and it might also be worth checking the following churches via their websites for additional historical information.

Holywood

A location that features in a number of Doggart stories.

Holywood, a small town on the outskirts of Belfast, is distinguished by being the only town in Ireland to have a Maypole.
This originally was the mast of a Dutch ship grounded in 1700. The mast was given to the folks of Holywood in appreciation of their rescue efforts.
Also Holywood is the home town of legendary golfer Rory McIlroy.

Death of Russell Doggart

Sad to report the death of Dr. James Russell Doggart 

Much of the hard work that went into creating this website was done by Russell. I never met him but exchanged many letters with him back in the 1980s.

I'm not a great lover of Facebook but I know I am in a minority so I thought I should promote this Doggart group as a great place to chat about the Doggart family.
