  General Notes:

In the 1841 census is an entry which may be this person. A James Quigley was recorded working as an agricultural labourer at Balgray in the Barony parish of Glasgow. He was aged in the 20-24 years age group and had been born in Ireland. Another Irish born man of a similar age group called Thomas Quigley was also working there as an agricultural labourer, possibly a brother or a cousin of James.

The 1851 census for Riccarton recorded James Quigley living as a lodger with William and Elesabeth Thomson at Old Hurlford. Another lodger, Robert Shields lived there too. James was unmarried, aged 27 years and worked as a labourer. He had been born in Monachan (sic) Ireland.

James along with his wife and four children was recorded by the 1861 census living at Fardihill (sic) Colliery in the parish of Kilmaurs, Ayrshire. He was a pithead man, aged 30 years, and had been born in Ireland.

His death certificate in 1867 says James was a labourer when employed. He was aged 42 years at the time of his death and was married to Agnes Dunnachie.

In 1869 when his daughter Catherine died, her death certificate did not record James as deceased, though the other biographical details appear to be in order and accurate. James was recorded as a labourer.

In the 1877 marriage certificate of his son James, James senior was recorded as 'pitheadman deceased'. This was also the designation recorded in the death certificate of the same son, James, in 1914. 3 7 8

  Research Notes:

'Fardilill' Colliery was probably a colliery at or near Fardalehill in East Ayrshire, beside Busbiehead.

Dr D. McLeod certified the cause of death.

H. Donachie, the brother of the widow, informed the registrar Thomas Dickie at Kilmarnock on 12 February 1867.
