MCCABE Family History

This interesting surname is of Irish and Scottish origin, and is an Anglicized form of the Gaelic "MacCaba" a patronymic from the byname "Caba", a cape or hat. In the Middle Ages Irish chieftains imported fighting men from Scotland to augment their forces. Many of these mercenaries, known as gallowglasses, were the M(a)cCabes who came from Inis Gall in the Hebrides.

    Gerry Coyle

    My name is Gerry Coyle I’m writing a book about my father IRA Commandant Henry Coyle he like many others was one of Ireland’s freedom fighters. One of his allies in Scotland in the 1920s was a man called Bernard McCabe. Bernard was a shop owner in Glasgow at the time he provided the transport for the transportation of war material. He was jailed in Peterhead prison in March 1920. He was released on the 13th February 1922. Just reaching out to see if anyone had pictures or any information about his relatives or what happened him afterwards. Many thanks

    I am trying to trace my Great Grandfather who seems to have appeared in South Africa out of thin air some time in the mid 1800s and married Emma Elizabeth Field. One of their children was Arthur Field McCabe, my Grandfather. Many thanks for any help.
