About the Project

The McGUIRE Name Study project serves as a collaborative platform to collect information on the McGUIRE name. The hope is that other researchers like you will join the study to help make it a valuable reference point for other genealogists who are researching or have an interest in the McGUIRE name.

As a One Name Study, this project is not limited to persons who are related biologically. Individual team studies can be used to branch out the research into specific methods and areas of interest, such as geographically (England McGUIRE's), by time period (18th Century McGUIRE's), or by topic (McGUIRE DNA, McGUIRE Occupations, McGUIRE Statistics). These studies may also include a number of family branches which have no immediate link with each other. Some researchers may even be motivated to go beyond the profile identification and research stage to compile fully sourced, single-family histories of some of the families they discover through this name study project.

Also see the related surnames and surname variants.

Hello, everyone. I'd like to join this project. I've been engaged in amateur genealogy for about five years and am descended from Oakley Griffen McGuire (1882-1949), son of Alexander McGuire (1850-1934), son of Herbert Basil (or Basil Herbert?) McGuire (1824-1907). Basil is my brick wall. As far as I can tell, Basil was born in Kentucky (per the 1900 Census) and lived in Ironton, Ohio. He appears on the 1870, 1880, and 1890 Censuses. In Ohio's Civil War draft registration records, he was living in Scioto, Ohio, and he presumably fought for the Union given that he named his youngest son Ulysses after the war (born 1868). But I have *no idea* where he came from. Looking forward to working with all of you and offering assistance however I can!
  • Edit: I am aware that some sources on the internet list Basil as the son of Clementina Potter and Elijah McGuire, but I think this is incorrect.

I would like to join the McGuire Name Study. My grandmother actually got me started in genealogy probably about 15 years ago, and I was given this same information about the McGuire name. I want to find out for sure where my family is, and I have had a blast looking into it so far!

A quick look suggests you may be related to John McGuire, born 1756 Ireland. Unfortunately, there are currently two profiles for the same man in Wikitree, and those profiles need to be merged. Much confusion exists for this man. I may be able to help you with this John, at least for the time he spent in Virginia. But I will need a lot more information before diving into that discussion. I have little information on his descendants, but I probably have some detail on John himself.

If you can send me a private message, maybe we could exchange email addresses and take the discussion further. Jim

My maiden name is Mcguire and myself also have a long line of McGuire's (Hugh McGuire B. 1788, D. 1872 in Renfrew, ON) coming from Enniskillen, county Fermanagh. I am very new to this site and am still exploring and would like to join your group, thank you in advance.

Joining the group for my ancestor Ann “Nancy“ McGuire, a brickwall ancestor, born about 1804 in Co Armagh and married Bernard Short before immigrating to Kingston area of Canada in the 1830s. https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/McGuire-6329

Hi Craig, fabulous! My McGuire ancestor came from Enniskillen, County Fermanagh, Ireland to Western Australia. They really travelled all over the world in the 1800's! Welcome aboard :)

My maiden name is McGuire, my paternal grandfather is Richard Andrew McGuire from Thurles Tipperary and is one of thirteen children. I have found it very difficult tracking the McGuire after my grandfather. Can I join please? Thanks
posted by Sharon McGuire
Absolutely! The more the merrier, I have some work to do on this page, as the page requirements by the One Name Study project on wikitree have changed. I am hoping to create some teams very soon, which should be helpful to you and everyone else. Maybe we can have a specific team from McGuire's from Ireland. I think most people's family research reaches a dead end once you trace it to Ireland unfortionately. :)

Hi Kylie. We have already connected through my Facebook group Two Convicts and Two Sisters. As you know we are cousins as your gggrandmother and my gggrandmother were sisters. Catherine and Margaret McGuire. Both the sisters married convicts. Catherine married Charles Jordan and Margaret married William Whitehead. I am passionate about the MCGuire story. Currently I am researching Margaret and Catherine’s brother John McGuire who is believed to be the father of John McGuire to an aboriginal woman he worked with in Derby. DNA testing has occurred and we are anxiously awaiting to hear either whether this belief is actually a reality. I would really love to join your group. Robynne Walsh
Of course you can join I will add you to team list. Any questions just ask. But be sure to read this page for all the information.

Hi I would like to join the McGuire study. I was adopted at birth and through Ancestry DNA found my birth mother four years ago and my birth father three years ago. My birth father's last name is McGuire and I'm trying to trace back my history through the McGuire side of my family tree. I currently have up to my third great grandfather John McGuire (1814-1880) and his wife Mary Pillsbury (1788-?). I'm currently struggling trying to find my fourth great grandfather and beyond. I know they are from Virginia and mostly in the Westmoreland in Northumberland Counties. So I'm hoping that maybe somebody on here would be able to help me with this research and find more information about the McGuire's.

Thanks

Ray

I can only offer my opinion on this. When I got to about 50 variations in the spelling of my surname, I quit counting. The variations shown above are only a fraction of those out there. Personally I suspect the most commonly used variant today is McGuire. I might guess that a person new to the study of the surname might start with McGuire. My opinion would be that a "Maguire Name Study" would best fit as a variant under the McGuire Name Study.

You can reach me via email at anytime. [email address removed]

Hi, I'm trying to straighten out some name studies. There is a set of categories for Category:Maguire Name Study, which was established in 2016. If it should stand as its own name study, then the variant needs to come off this one. If it should be a variant of this study, I'll need to rename all of the categories to something like Category:Maguires, McGuire Name Study]]. Which one is preferable?

Thanks, Natalie, ONS leader
