Grave Inscriptions In St.Mary’s Churchyard

St. Mary’s Churchyard & James Ryan.

The following collection of gravestone inscriptions are to be found in the cemetery which surrounds St Mary’s (Church of Ireland) Church in Thurles, County Tipperary. Where posible, these inscriptions have been checked against ‘The Journal for the Preservation of the Memorials of the Dead,’ which are to be found in the Local Studies Dept. of Thurles Library. All the inscriptions below are incised.

The Church building itself is a comparatively modern building, early 1800, but evidently stands on the site of a much older one. This parish was impropriate in the Abbey of Owney, County of Limerick, and in 1202 Abbot Hugh mortgaged this church to Italian merchants. After the dissolution of the monasteries it was handed over to Walter Ap Howell, and after him to Pierce Walsh and his descendants.

The work of compiling these headstone inscriptions was painstakingly undertaken by Mr James Ryan, Dublin Road, Thurles, and it is the hope of ‘Hidden Tipperary’ that this information will be of some assistance to persons involved in tracing their family roots, here in Thurles, Co.Tipperary.

The numbers shown in brackets after each inscription refer to the position of that grave stone in the graveyard. Spellings have not been changed to the modern accepted spelling of names and any person consulting this record is advised to look for a name under every possible spelling.

    I’ve visited your site Hidden Tipperary, that is were I got some of my genealogy research from. The one gravestone entry on William O’Shea stated that he erected the stone in March of 1872. Well with that info, I was able to get his wife’s name & death certificate.
    One of these days I’ll make it to Ireland but I have so many places to see as I’ve traced my roots to Tipperary, Cavan, Donegal, Offaly and Londenderry.
    Thanks again for the genealogy info on the site and for taking the time to help me!

    I have never been out of Australia but my maiden name is Conroy and while researching that family history I stumbled across your site. The poingancy of this place is significant to my own area. Many Irish people from your area settled here or were sent here. Many obviously beat a desperate retreat from certain death. This is both a Catholic and Protestant area. We have places called Ballan Daylesford Mt Egerton Wallace Gordan Bolwarrah Dean Newlyn and people called by nearly every name in your cemetery. I was wondering if Pudding Lane and the Quarry were actual places or just descriptions.Tanks a lot. Helen Morningstar.

    • Admin says:

      Hi Helen,
      Nice to hear from you.
      (1) Pudding Lane, also known as Jail Street was the name of what is now known as O’Donovan Rossa Street. Rossa street is so named in memory of Jeremiah O’Donovan Rossa (September 1831 – 29 June 1915), who was an Irish Fenian leader and prominent member of the Irish Republican Brotherhood. The original name, Pudding Lane, was copied from a street in London, formerly the location of Thomas Farriner’s bakehouse where the Great Fire of London began in 1666. This street in London allegedly is named after the entrails and organs which would fall from the carts coming down the Lane from the butchers in Eastcheap as they headed for the waste barges on the Thames river. Perhaps here In Thurles at this time the same may have been a similar situation. It was on this street that Thurles housed its town jail, long since gone. See link: http://www.thurles.info/2008/11/07/cormack-brothers-john-gore-jones-investigates-ellis-death/
      (2) Quarry refers to a small area east of the town of Thurles, and is as the name suggests, a place where hard limestone was mined for a time. Same is in the area which today incorporates Mitchell St, Kickham St, St Mary’s Lane, Borroway areas etc. Area also known locally as The Pike,with the origins of this name not entirely clear. Possibly this area contained a barriers to prevent horses from accessing foot paths, or in other instances block passage until a toll had been paid by persons entering or passing through this area. See Link: http://www.faminemuseum.com/
      Trusting this explains your queries.
      Should you decide to visit Ireland, give us a call and we will help you with you travel arrangements and accomodation etc here in Thurles.

    We have been researching for over 35 years and have hit a brick wall with our research. We know that they came from Thurles Tipperary Ireland and married in Adelaide South Australia 21/1/1860, however we cannot find when they arrived in Australia. They settled in Geelong Victoria Australia around 1861 and had several children of which I am a g-g-grandaughter. My surname is County? maybe Maher
    Michael County m Anastasia Manton Tipperary. James County m Catherine Mc Carthy
    Parents John Mc Carthy m Mary Ryan Tipperary – any information appreciated.

    • George says:

      Having difficulty understanding Surname “County”, can you please elaborate as I am not aware that such exists.

      • Margot says:

        The name County…. I have searched for this name some time ago.
        It seems it was “Miss heard” and the incorrect spelling of County came from “Canty”
        The earliest I found was 1804. This was a Dennis County on a ship called Venier from New York to Australia in 1854.

    • Lindie says:

      Ancestry.com and the LDS site has one Anstice County DOD as 1868 thurles, Ireland (Ireland, Civil Registration Deaths Index, 1864-1958, vol:18, page:453, FHL film number: 101584). She was 80
      Additonal, there was a Thomas County DOD as 1868 Thurles, Ireland(Ireland, Civil Registration Deaths Index, 1864-1958, vol:18, page: 453, Fhl Film number: 101584) He was 30.
      Another one, Mary County DOD 1899 at age 86 Thurles, Ireland (Ireland, Civil Registration Deaths Index, 1864-1958, vol: 3, page: 392, FHL Film number: 101600.)
      John County DOD 1904 at age 85 Thurles, Ireland (Ireland, Civil registration Deaths Index, 1864-1953, vol 3, page 383, FHL film number 101602)

      I think the name was correctly spelled, but in other places I’ve found Canty, so keep your eyes open for different spellings.

    My ancestors are the Stragmans (Joshua & his wife Hannah etc.) How can I find out where the gravestone (264) is actually located in the graveyard? I visited St |Mary’s about 7-8 years ago & could not find the location of the head stone.
    My information is that this Joshua & Hannah also had a son Joseph b about 1789 & died 121 Feb 1873 in Thurles (date – the seat of many etc from civil registration death entry), but I can find no record of him being buried in Thurles) While other Strangman’s were Quakers, as far as I know this Joseph was CoI. Nor can I find evidence of him being buried in Waterford the seat of amny Strangman’s
    Also my Strangmans’s were merchants (on Main St) & had premises in Cookes Lane & Kearney’s/Carneys Lane. They must be part of the wider Strangman clan which resided in Waterford & Clonmel butI cannot find any links to the wider Strangman family network.
    Is there any other local history or information sources which might throw light on how mt Strangman’s got to Thurles?

      Your ref to Waterford
      Strangman – An estate at Carricklone, barony of Middlethird, county Waterford, was offered for sale in the Landed Estates Court by John Strangman in November 1859.The notice appeared again in January 1860 T.H. Strangman owned 250 acres in county Waterford in the 1870s. John Strangeman (Note Spelling) was leasing this property from the Corporation of Waterford in 1850 when it was valued at £22. It now forms part of the Western Campus of Waterford Institute of Technology.

      A Joshua Wm. Strangman (Quaker) served as Secretary to the Waterford Auxiliary Committee writing and receiving a huge amount of correspondence during the Famine. Strangman was also a member of the Waterford Chamber of Commerce, of which he served as President on more
      than one occasion during the 1830s and 1840s, the Waterford Harbour Board and the Waterford Fever Hospital Management Committee.

      A letter he wrote 15th Dec 1848 – Reminds me of current EU regulations

      Respected Friend,
      My attention having been directed to an article on the Irish Fisheries in the Times of the 4th inst.
      I take the liberty of offering a few observations upon it.

      I would first premise that before pronouncing wholesale condemnation of the Irish fishermen as utterly incorrigible it would seem to me to be the more correct course to examine into existing causes and endeavour to discover a suitable remedy.

      That numerous efforts made within the last two years by benevolent individuals to benefit Irish fishermen have been unsuccessful is unhappily too true, but whether this failure has been occasioned by the intractable character of the persons whose condition it was sought to ameliorate or by the unskilful application of the means to effect that object, the following case appears to me to afford an apt illustration.

      During the famine year of 1847 – the neighbourhood in which I reside was placed under the supervision of the Waterford Auxiliary Relief Committee of the Society of Friends and they being anxious to encourage industrial employment at an early period directed their attention to the promotion of the coast fishery. With that object a sum of money was placed in the hands of a gentleman then residing at Ballinacourty at the Eastern side of the entrance of the bay of Dungarvan to assist the fishermen of that locality – He was a very benevolent person and considering the poorest and most destitute man stood the most need of aid, he made his selection from among that class – thus practically holding out an inducement to every applicant to appear as wretched and as miserable as possible – The result was similar to what it has been in many other places – after a few months trial he pronounced them to be indolent, lazy and ungrateful and that further efforts would be unavailing and he therefore returned the balance remaining in his hands.
      On the opposite side of the same bay at a distance of about two miles is the Ring District and the
      wretched condition of its inhabitants, a hardy race of fishermen, was at the same period brought under the notice of the Committee by the Vicar of the Parish James Alcock – He stated that their boats were out of repair, their oars had been burned as fuel, their clothing furniture and fishing gear had been pledged for food and in one village alone one hundredfamilies were daily receiving public relief. Besides a supply of twenty barrels of meal – the sum of £20 (subsequently increased to £57) was forwarded to him, to try what could be effected by means of small loans to enable the fishermen to repair their boats and resume their usual occupation; thus making them producers of food instead of mere consumers of it.
      The judicious Vicar who possesses the talent – a qualification much needed in Ireland – of being able to assist persons without making them dependent and also of teaching them to rely upon their own exertions – made his selection solely from among the well conducted – sober and industrious – those who were anxious and willing to help themselves and truly important have been the results of his valuable exertions.

      In company with another member of our Committee I visited the District during the present week and gratifying indeed was it to find that the boats were repaired and in active operation, clothing furniture and fishing gear had all been released from the Pawn Office. Many of the dwellings had been newly thatched – Smiling countenances met us on every side and we were informed that not a single individual was receiving Public Relief – Here then are two districts peopled by the same Celtic race – their dwellings separated only by a narrow bay Benevolent efforts are made in each and observe the striking contrast in the results.

      Is it the character of the inhabitants – or the system of management that has produced so remarkable a difference?
      But further, one of the first objects that attracts the notice of our inquirer when investigating the fishery question is the singular difference between the English and Irish fishery laws.
      For example the Trammel Net, a most effective engine – cheap in its construction – inexpensive in its working and most productive in the quantity of fish it captures is allowed to be freely used by day as well as night in Great Britain, but by an act of the Imperial Legislature in 1842 it is decreed that this valuable instrument, essentially the poor man’s Net, be set on the Irish Coast before sunset or if it is suffered (except in very stormy weather) to remain in the water after the sun has risen above the horizon the poor fisherman so offending incurs the forfeiture of the net, and a penalty of £5 for each offence!
      The extreme hardship of this singular enactment having been represented to the government, a clause was introduced into the fishing act of 1845 empowering the Irish Fishery Board to relax or wholly remove the unpolitic daylight restriction. But although more than three years have elapsed
      since the Act received the Royal Assent and repeated remonstrations have been made to the Board I find by a recent communication from Dublin that up to the end of last month in no one instance had the slightest relaxation been granted and thus the relief clause of 1845 has been virtually a dead letter.

      Of the vast importance of this net to the Irish fishermen Ishall give just one example. On our recent visit to the Ring district we entered some of the cottages and saw in them considerable quantities of salted fish which the fishermen had cured and were (owing to their improved circumstances) keeping in store for sale until the season called Lent. A careful inventory of each man’s stock was made for us and on calculating the whole at the market price we found much to
      our surprise and gratification that the value of it amounted to £1,500!! (Fifteen hundred pounds)
      This be it observed was in addition to what was sold in a fresh state for the current family expenses, it had all been caught within the last 3 months by the Trammel Nets supplied to twenty one boats and the fishermen assured us and we have no reason to doubt their assertion that but for the absurd daylight restriction they would have captured nearly double the quantity of fish and that thrice the number of boats would have eagerly embarked in the same lucrative employment.

      Much – very much – more might be written on this interesting subject but the foregoing will doubtless suffice to show – First that if aid be given to persons merely because they are wretched and destitute it cannot excite surprise that such efforts, however well intentioned, prove unsuccessful and secondly that before the Irish fisherman is pronounced to be “an imbecile” he should at least first have the shackles removed that fetter his exertions and be allowed the same
      measure of freedom from restriction that is enjoyed by his fellow craftsmen in England.

      My experience and observation on fishing operations warrant me in saying that if Paddy is but put in the right path and enabled to discover the sweets of good wages he will proceed with a degree of persevering energy fully equal to his Saxon brethren. Like the un-reclaimed and half tilled land upon which he lives the soil is good and by the exercise of skill and judicious management may be made to yield a rich and abundant harvest.

      I am respectfully,
      Joshua Wm Strangman

    Good afternoon,
    I am looking for the grave of a son of Mary Elizabeth Maud and Fitzroy Knox, I have found their younger son and them selves buried in the St Mary’s graveyard but cannot find their second son Gerald Fitzroy Knox, Born March 1879, nor the eldest son John Frederick Knox Born 1876. Is there another graveyard in Thurles besides the two you have announced here?

    Thank you

    I have only just come across your website and wish I’d found it years ago. The family I am searching for is that of John Sweeney, born c. 1842, son of Edward Sweeney and Margaret Brennan. John emigrated to New South Wales in 1863 (I think – if I’ve found the right one). From the immigration records, I think he had a sister Hannah who travelled with him.
    I will be in Thurles at the end of this month and would love to track down graves or find more information about the family – names, where they lived, anything really. The problem is I’m in a hurry as I am flying out of Australia on Monday 10th September and I have discovered your site on Friday 7th September!!
    I know there’s not much chance of hearing from you before Monday but I would appreciate any help anyway.

    Thanks very much.

      Hi Shelly,
      Do you have any address in Thurles Town or indeed Tipperary County here in Ireland?
      Regards.
      George

      • Shelley Farrow says:

        Hi George
        Sorry I wasn’t able to see your reply before I left, but I don’t have any address for the family. However, I was lucky enough to stay in a B & B in Two Mile Borris where the owner, Pierce Duggan, provides genealogy assistance for Tipperary. I went to the Tipperary Family History Research Centre in Tipperary Town but they couldn’t find a John Sweeney with those parents or find a marriage for the parents in Thurles. They did find a marriage for Edward Sweeney and Margaret “Bannon” with a daughter Hannah but I’m not sure that they are correct either as that Hannah would have been the same age as John, not 3 years younger as recorded in the original immigation record. The Centre also looked at the microfilm (for an extra fee) to see whether it had not been transcribed correctly and contacted North Tipperary but with no success. The information provided to me was for Thurles Parish but no further detail. No address on the marriage certificate or on their children’s birth certificates.

        I have ordered the marriage certificate of a Hannah Sween(e)y in NSW as a guess that she might be the right one. (There were only two feasible possibilities.) Hopefully she will have the same parents and some more detailed information about where she came from.

        Is there usually more detail than names, parishes, dates and witnesses/sponsors in the original parish records?

        Regards
        Shelley

    Hi. I visited St.Marys Graveyard today in search of my grandmother’s grave but sadly without success. The name is Boyle erected by Ellen Boyle Cassestown in remembrance of her husband and daughter Mary Carew {my grandmother} Ref 41.
    Could you give me any idea of the location of this grave., also Leahy ref 40.
    Looking forward to your answer, Maura Gilchriest.

      Hi Maura,
      Both graves are positioned side by side on the right hand side, just as you enter the main entrance, while facing the front door of the church building.

    Thanks very much for this. My father (William George Mooney) was brought up in St Mary’s Avenue in the house closest to the church gates. He was brought up by the Eades family and his adoptive father was the church warden. He spoke often about playing in the church-yard and amongst the gravestones you have catalogued so well.

    Once again, thank you – I remember visiting the Church many times as a child.

    This is a fabulous site, thank you.
    I was wondering if you could help. My great grandparents Edward and Mary Purcell (nee Bates) are buried in this cemetery along with their two baby granddaughters. They died in 1937 and 1938 and their granddaughters Catherine Anne and Margaret Esther Quigley in 1940 and 1942. My mother remembers visiting the grave years ago but recently has not been able to find the grave. I wondered if you could throw any light on it ? Many thanks Karen

    Hello

    Great site …I only wish there were more like the. I am researching the Lanphier’s of Parkestown for my sister in-law and have a number of gaps that need more information to tie things together. This site has already provided a start. Blanche Langley whom I believe was a daughter to Thomas Langley of Archerstown and Catherine Nicholson of Turtulea (daughter of John and Blanche) married John Pennefather Lanphier. However I do not have a date or place of where they married….could they possibly have married in the parish of either of her parents Thomas or Catherine. Similarly I am unable to find a death/burial record for Blanche Lanphier (nee Langley) or her husband John Pennefather Lanphier.

    Any help or suggestions that may set me on the path to find the information would be truly appreciated.

    Thank you

  23. Michael Duffy says:

    This site is a great resource, thanks to everyone who has contributed. I am looking for information on the Quins and Houghs of Rossestown. James Quin and Ann Hough and their children left in 1840 for Quebec, and I would like to know more about the relatives they left behind. A few of them seem to be buried at St. Mary’s. I assume many more are buried there but the graves have no stones- is there a register containing the names of those interred in the cemetery? Is there a cemetery in the Rossestown area that they might have been more likely to use?

    Any help would be very much appreciated, thanks.
