Ballygalget, Down. Marriages 1854-55

Ballygalget, Down

Ballygalget Marriage Index 1854-55

The following table of Ballygalget marriages  is transcribed from Microfilm No. 5478 held online by the National Library of Ireland accessible through their Roman Catholic Parish Register Search page.

This is an index of the names of the people who were married in this Roman Catholic parish during the years 1854 and 1855. This section of the register is in English.

Placenames are not given in this section of the register.

My list is sorted by the surname of the groom.  Question marks or dots indicate letters or words I had a problem reading, two question marks then the harder the register was to read and I am most likely guessing as best I can as to what the surname is.  I have now begun to put square brackets to indicate those letters that I am guessing at.

When two ‘s’ letters come together in a word such as Bessy then the format where the first s looks like an f is used in this section of the register. No maiden name as such as given for Hugh & Mary Anne McGrath.  The wedding was registered as being Hugh & Mary Anne McGrath. No witnesses were listed for the Hamilton & Boyd marriage.

Petticoat Lane

When to Dublin I came from the sweet County Down,
I called on a friend for to show me the town;
He brought me thro’ streets, lanes and alleys so grand,
Till my brogues were almost wore and I scarcely could stand.
He showed me fine houses, were built up so high,
And a man made of stone almost up to the sky,
But the names of them places went out of my brain,
Show him up to the college in Petticoat lane!

Chorus:
Ri tu ral, ru ral, ri tu ral, ru ral le

Convenient to Petticoat Lane there is a place,
And as we walked through it we couldn’t get peace ;
The shops were all full of fine clothes, black and blue,
But the fellows outside nearly tore me in two.
One dragged me this way to get a good freize,
Another had corduroy breeches my size;
But one chap bawls out, when I wouldn’t remain,
Show him up to the College in Petticoat Lane!

Chorus

We got loose from this spot, myself and my friend,
I couldn’t do less than a teaster to spend ;
But we spied boys and girls in a laughable group,
Sitting cross-legged and they licking up soup.
Says I: “Are these what you call your poor house recruits?”
Ax the divil! says one and his bowl at me shoots ;
They roared with pleasure, while I roared with pain,
Arrah, Paddy, you’re welcome to Petticoat Lane!

Chorus

My friend thought to drag me away by the sleeve,
When a tartar dropped over my head an old sieve ;
I turned for to strike her, but got in the eye
A plaster of what they call mutton pie.
I kept groping about, like a man that was blind,
‘Till I caught hould of somebody coming behind ;
I prayed that I might get the strength of a Cain,
To be able to whale him in Petticoat Lane.

I walloped away, and I got walloped too,
While all sorts of ructions were raised by the crew ;
You could swear it was raining brick-bats and stones,
‘Till I heard my antagonist giving some groans.
Run and be d…….d to you! some one did cry,
Sure I can’t for the mutton that’s stuck in my eye ;
I was led through the crowd, and heard somebody saying,
There’s a Peeler most killed in Petticoat Lane.

Chorus

These words like a thunderbold fell on my ear,
So I scooped all the fat from my eye pretty clear ;
My friends told the crowd that was ’round to be mute,
While we slipped to a house called “The Sign of the Boot,”
There I called for a sup, and we both took a seat,
Two or three that had backed us came in for a treat ;
When reckoning was called for, my pocket’s were clean,
For pounds, shillings, and pence were in Petticoat Lane.

Chorus

The reckoning it came to a hog and a groat,
For which the landlord took a lend of my coat ;
I started without, still cursing the town,
Says he: “You have killed C.106 –
Arrah, be aisy sir, I want none of your tricks!”
But the sergeant and twenty more swore it was plain
That I was the bully of Petticoat Lane.

Chorus

They all swarmed about me like flies on a cask,
But to prison to take me was no easy task ;
When I got there I was charged with the crime,
‘Twas my own brother Darby I bate all the time.
When he seen me he let out a thundering curse,
On the day that he first went to join in the force ;
He released my ould coat and he got me off clean,
To go home and say prayers for sweet Petticoat Lane.
