A search of all available indexes is in order. You are lucky because the surname is rare. All my books are now packed, but if I were you,
I would find a copy of Falley "Irish and Scotch Irish Ancestral
Research" and look up what she says about Hugeunots. There is a
society in Ireland. Some of their records may be filmed by LDS
(check Ireland/Archives ). In any case you can write. There's also
a CD I saw of Huguenot books. www.familytreemaker.com -- or at your
Then grab a copy of the revised Ryan "Irish Records". Turn to the
Armagh chapter. Notice the list of indexes or index like records.
Like muster lists and religious censuses. Check all of those.
IGI has a lot of them and they are in England. Perhaps they moved
over. It also will give you some other spelling suggestions.
FUGGARD and FAGGART and McFAGGART. It also has some in Ireland,
mostly Co Down and Antrim.
In any case you need to map out all of them that you can find.
There's also indexes of earlier Irish wills and deed indexes.
The early wills are indexed in www.familytreemaker.com's subscription
You do find them in IReland as early as 1729 right in IGI -- whether
these are your family or not, donno. The name isn't in McLysaght.
You also should check civil registration -- in 1870 you can get back
another generation or two using Irish civil registration. You can get
the indexes at LDS.
Also you should check the real Griffiths index -- the CD index has errors. If you can get a location from civil registration, then
you might even try searching that parish sequentially. All indexes
have at least 10% error rates -- and the Griffiths CD index has
a much higher error rate, they say.
Just some suggestions --
