GIVEN NAME

The meaning of the name Tully, Tullie or Toal, is said to be "from the little hill". Its origin is Celtic or Gaelic. It is an anglicised version of the Irish word Tuathal meaning "prince of the people". Others translate as "Mighty".


Tole married Margaret McGARY before 9 June 1822.1 (Margaret McGARY was born about 1804.)


  Marriage Notes:

No marriage record has been found for this couple, but since their daughter Catherine was baptised in the church there is an assumption that they were legitimately married before her baptism:
