How to Join

Please contact the project leader Peggy Nagle or leave a comment at the foot of the page. If you have any questions, just ask. Thanks!


This is a One Name Study to collect together in one place all of the members of the global Nagle family tree. We hope other Nagle researchers like you will join our study to help us fit together piece of the puzzle that will help us all connect our families.

Task List

What has been done:

  • Nagle Census Data for Canada 1842 to 1920 has all been entered.

What you can do:

  • Start by entering all of your own Nagle family members, supported by sources. It is especially helpful if you can enter as much biographical data as possible for each person, rather than just uploading a GEDCOM.
  • Ensure that profiles for deceased family members are open. If they are locked for privacy, nobody else can add sources or information.
  • Strive for accuracy rather than family lore. If a relationship or bit of information is unconfirmed, note it in the biography section.

Location Research:

  • If you have extra time on your hands, select a particular location and start entering all of the Nagles from that area. You can source these people through Census data, Farmily and FindaGrave.
  • Francis Nagle is working on the Ottawa/Smith Falls/Drummond area and the Rathcormack, Ireland area.
  • Tara Coulter is working on the New London, Connecticut and the Timoleague, Ireland areas.
  • Peggy Nagle is working on the Clonakilty, Ireland and Illinois areas. Peggy is also working on entering Findagrave information for all of Canada.
  • Which area would you like to target?

Would like to help out with the Australian Nagle's where I can. Should I just add the Nagle name study sticker to each profile? (found a WW1 service man today and created the profile).

Peggy, I’d be glad to help your project by adding Nagles from Cambria County, Pennsylvania. There are quite a few, and I’m probably related to most as one of my 3rd great grandmothers was a Nagle. I already added a few while working on a cemetery project. I’m terrible at formatting, just so you know; I’ve basically taught myself everything I’ve learned at Wikitree, so if you need anything specific added to the profiles, I’ll need detailed instructions on how to do it. Thanks for reading! Jamie

Hi Peggy, and all Nagle and their kin. Dont let my apparent French name confuse you, I changed it from Nagle as a 20 something year old on finding out about my illustrious family via Burke's Peerage. I spent the pandemic lockdown doing an awesome amount of genealogy with the assistance of some cousins germain and very distant cousins. My family are descendent from Sir Richard Nagle , a name very recurrent in our tree, and from May (Nano's sister) and her cousin Pierce. The last home we had in Ireland was at Cloghvoolia, a little south of Killavullen, in the Nagles Mountains, adjacent to Shanballyduff. With the help of John Edmund Nagle-Meenan I have been tracking the life and times of Admiral Sir Edmund Nagle KCB GCH Bart.&c &c &c and now have a book of 116000 words, it contains some general Nagle family history, as well as a little about Edmund Nagle's second cousin, godfather & ward The Sublime Edmund Burke. What I have discovered is that C S Forester has used Edmund Nagle's life as a Royal Navy hero to write all of his Horatio Hornblower novels, i.e. Edmund Nagle is Horatio Hornblower. Likewise , in his second famous role as boon-companion, equerry, aide de camp and groom of the bedchamber to the Prince Regent/ King George IV Edmund Nagle's life has again been used by Ben Elton & Richard Curtis to write the 1987 BBC sitcom Blackadder the Third, i.e. Edmund Blackadder III is Edmund Nagle. The evidence is immense and irrefutable. Anybody interested may contact me for a copy of the book. I m looking for a publisher also. [email address removed]

Hi Jude: Yes, Yes, Yes! I would be thrilled to read your book.

I'd also be keen to know about your journey to publication. Wish I knew an appropriate publisher to mention. Best, Peggy

PS: I have been working on my own branch of the Nagle family as a Covid project. I am 95% certain that my branch is the Garnavilla branch through to the Nagles of Derryclough. I sure wish that the records in ireland were a bit easier to find. Although if they were, the jigsaw puzzle might not be quite the same challenge. And I do like a challenge.

I noticed a few of my Nagles have been added to the study. I'm Australian have added a fair few Nagles already from my line in NSW. My Nagles also used both the Nagle and Nagel variations of the name. I could assist with adding more Nagles from outside my own Nagle line for the state of New South Wales, Australia.

Hi John:

That would be wonderful if you could add any Nagle or variant in Australia. Every addition helps us grow our extended family tree. I know that descendants of Luke Nagle, brother of my ggg grandfather emigrated from County Cork, Ireland to Australia. So some of the Aussie Nagles would be cousins to me, Best, Peggy Nagle

I have added a new Nagle in Ireland if you would like to add them to your study.

Just thought I'd let you know that I added a Nagle here in NZ. There is one other but I saw he had a study. To my knowledge they are not related. Nagle-2726
