I stumbled across this post while searching for information on Lieutenant Jeremiah Coghlan, RN who served in the Coastguard. He was a nephew of the more famous Captain Jeremiah Coghlan RN CB, in whose will he is a named minor beneficiary. This court case particularly caught my attention, as the said will of Captain Coghlan also bequeaths a sum of money to John, eldest son of Captain Coghlan’s deceased brother Timothy, specifically to be used to pursue legal means to prevent him being disposessed of his property in Crookhaven. There is also mention of a niece Maria Thomas. Wondering does anyone have genealogical information on this branch of the Coghlan family?
