As so often happens at least with me, the final revealed goal sometimes lags the effort.  With that said and based on many emails from MacTighernans around the world it is now the goal of this specific web site to list all MacTighernans that served in their countries military from the beginning to and including WW II.  It is meant as a tribute to the many McTernans / McTiernans who served and or gave their lives in the many wars for freedom.  Unless noted all listed are British, Australian, Canadian and New Zealand soldiers and sailors.  The American war records for many that served in the Great War and in WW II are woefully incomplete and those that exist are scattered over numerous web sites and as such are very difficult to find and include in this page.  The numerous American McTernans will be listed as soon as found.

If in the mean time you have a MacTighernan in your family that served in his country's Armed Services please send me his or her info. 

While I do have some WW II veterans included I am sure that list comes up short.   Yet with that said those WW II guys were the ones that saved civilization so any honoring of them is well deserved even though a bit incomplete. 

I have noted the DNA Group by the individual where known.  The references to the MacTighernan DNA study is at this web site  http://McTiernan.com/McTmaps.htm  Please send me any info or photos on the MacTighernans that served and should be included in this web site.

From Paul-UK McTernan who is in the T3  DNA group.  Paul operates a travel service and a major part of his business is battlefield tours. 

"Thank you for your very interesting email concerning the McTiernans in various Armed Forces. Clearly a lot of research has been done. My tour operating business has a tour programe dedicated to Battlefield Tours, primarily featuring The Great War and WW II. As a consequence I have an interest in the subjects but also visit the areas particularly in N. France and Belgium.  You and the other MacTighernains may be interested to look at our website where all of our Battlefield Tours are featured. http://www.leger.co.uk

As a former Marine this is my only commercial.  One of the best I have heard for a tribute to the US Marines and all servicemen and woman who have served  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5VQkebaQWmU

The Leitrim Wars of the undertakers vs. The O'Ruairc   1

1. Mulmory MacTernan, --1642,  is listed as a lesser grantee during the James I Plantation effort in Leitrim. In 1641, Mulmory MacTernan of Lisnanorrus, Inishmagrath, Barony of Drumahaire, Co Leitrim, chief of the clan, was a resident justice of the peace for Co Leitrim.  In February 1642, Sir Frederick Hamilton, [ namesake for the town of Manorhamilton] sent a force of 80 horse and foot to relieve the protestants at Parke Castle. On their return to Sir Frederick's castle they were attacked by 1000 Irish rebels.  After a fierce battle the English won and killed 60 of the rebels.  Mulmory MacTernan was one of the 60 killed.


The Irish Rebellion of 1798   1

1. Roger McTiernan, one of three rebels arrested near Drumkeeran for helping the French.  Roger was charged with having a gun on his person.  No details survive but the other 2 rebels were hung.

Background:  The Irish Rebellion of 1798 comprised a scattered series of local uprisings and desperate incursions that, tragically for the Irish rebels, failed to cohere.  In Leitrim, the spirit of rebellion peaked in 1795 - three years before General Humbert's French troops and the local Irish allies marched almost the full length of the county, with the government's superior force [led by the famous General Cornwallis who surrendered to GW's forces at Yorktown in 1781]  in pursuit, towards their eventual defeat just over the Co. Longford border at Ballinamuck. 

Co Leitrim was shaken by violent Defender disturbances 1793 and 1795, culminating in the battle of Drumcollop which brought Co Leitrim to a state of insurrection.  But Leitrim had risen too early, and the government's suppression of the Defenders and, later, the United Irishmen, was brutally effective.



The War of 1812, 1812-1815    6

1. Inspector General James McTernans, 1790--11-26-1873, of the Rockfield McTernans a British naval surgeon who was in the squadron which protected St. Helena during the residence there of Napoleon, and was present on that island at the death of that distinguished, but unfortunate monarch in 1821. James was also the surgeon on a British warship in the Chesapeake Bay in the War of 1812.  He also was the surgeon on the convict ship Sarah  and Sir Charles Forbes on their trips from England out to Australia. In historical documents the Rockfield McTernans and the Heapstown McTernans [ Rory's line in the T group baseline ] are called kinsmen.   James was the uncle of Constantine below under the British Army List.   On 8-1-1809, James was appointed Inspectorate of Hospitals.  Brother to Patrick below.

2.  Patrick McTenran, c 1793--1838, the 2nd son of Constantine McTernan and Mary Brady also qualified as a surgeon and for 20 years would voyage to Australia on convict ships one of which was the Dunvegan Castle  convict ship.  Brother to James above.

3. Dudy McTiernan, 1801--, born in Cloncar Marshamulton, Co. Mayo, may well be Glencar, Manorhamilton, Co. Leitrim. He had served 18 years 8 months with the 40th Regiment of Foot.  The residence date is 6-18-1928 in the Royal Hospital, Chelsea, off the Regimental Register of Pensioners  He was a laborer.  The complaint was dislocation of angle joint and fracture of small bones in the left leg.

4. Jas McTiernan, Veterans Battalion, residence date is 1814 in the Royal Hospital, Chelsea, off the Regimental Register of Pensioners

6.   Surgeon James McTernan, received the Naval General Service Medal and served on HMS Northumberland.  This is most likely one of Rory MacTiernan [ T DNA Group ] ancestors and part of the Heapstown, Co Sligo McTernans.

So now everybody grabs rifles and starts shooting.  The British sent troops and we sent troops to protect each other.  Everybody dug in and would fire at each other 6 days a week.  On Sunday a truce was called and everybody went to church and then had an after church barbecue together with a few pints of beer.  Late in the day everyone stumbled on home.  Monday morning both sides picked up rifles and started shooting again.  This went on for years.  If I rememebr my history the dispute finally went to international arbitration with Kaiser Wilhelm of Sarajevo fame making the final decision, hence the northern border between Canada and the US is so straight like someone just drew a quick line on a map.  Sapper John McTernan was attached to the N. American Boundary Detachment and served in the Boer War also.

The Imperial Yeomanry was a British volunteer cavalry regiment that mainly saw action during the Second Boer War. Officially created on 24 December 1899, the regiment was based on members of standing Yeomanry regiments, but also contained a large contingent of mid-upper class English volunteers. In Ireland 120 men were recruited in February 1900. It was officially disbanded in 1908.

On 13 December 1899, the decision to allow volunteer forces serve in the Second Boer War was made. Due to the string of defeats during Black Week in December, 1899, the British government realized they were going to need more troops than just the regular Army, thus issuing a Royal Warrant on 24 December 1899. This warrant officially created the Imperial Yeomanry.

The Royal Warrant asked standing Yeomanry regiments to provide service companies of approximately 115 men each. In addition to this, many British citizens (usually mid-upper class) volunteered to join the new regiment. Although there were strict requirements, many volunteers were accepted with substandard horsemanship/marksmanship; however, they had significant time to train while awaiting transport.

The first contingent of recruits contained 550 officers, 10371 men with 20 battalions and four companies, which arrived in South Africa between February and April, 1900. Upon arrival, the regiment was sent throughout the zone of operations.

Saper John was in the N American Boundary Detachment Royal Engineers  also and may have been involved in the infamous Pig War with England that went on for 10 years.  The Pig War started over a boundary dispute between the US and Canada on the  boarder.  At the time England owned Canada.  Half the island was British and the other was American.  Somehow somebody shot an American settler's pig. So now everybody grabs rifles and starts shooting.  The British sent troops and we sent troops to protect each other.  Everybody dug in and would fire at each other 6 days a week.  On Sunday a truce was called and everybody went to church and then had an after church barbecue together with a few pints of beer.  Late in the day everyone stumbled on home.  Monday morning both sides picked up rifles and started shooting again.  This went on for years.  If I remember my history the dispute finally went to international arbitration with Kaiser Wilhelm of Sarajevo fame making the final decision, hence the northern border between Canada and the US is so straight like someone just drew a quick line on a map.  Sapper John was attached to the N. American Boundary Detachment and served in the Crimea War also.
