Funeral Entries of Waterford Families, 1600s

In a large folio MS. in the British Museum, press marked, “Additional 4820” are contained copies of several hundred Irish funeral entries. This MS, was apparently transcribed sometime early in the last (18th) century.


On the left margin of each page a space of about 2 ¼ inches is allowed on which a sketch is frequently given of the arms of the person whose burial is recorded. The entries are principally confined to the first half of the seventeenth century, but towards the end of the volume there are a few written in a different, a slovenly, and a later hand, that extend into the early years of the following century. In all instances they give the names of at least two generations, more frequently of three or four, and sometimes no less than five or even more generations. They are consequently such useful and fruitful sources of information to the genealogist and the antiquary that those relating to Waterford families may be deemed of sufficient importance to merit a place in the Journal,

Waterford Lazar or Leper House, 1661

[In the Franciscan Convent, Clonmel, is an interesting document bearing on the history of the Leper Hospital, Waterford. It is in manuscript-bound up in a volume of Archdalls “” Monasticon “”- and purports to be a copy of an inquisition taken at Waterford immediately after the Restoration, before the Sheriff of the County and the Mayor of the City (William Halsey), with whom were associated Richard Power, Member of Parliament for the County, and James Bryver. Halsey represented the City in Parliament at the same time that he filled its Mayoral Chair. Father Cooney, O.S.F., Clonmel, copied the manuscript for our Most Reverend President, and we are here enabled, through the courtesy of the latter, to present its contents to the readers of the Journal. The site of the old Leper House, it may be well to add, was in Stephen-street, close to St. Stephen’s Church, and partly on the site of the present brewery.


In St. Stephen’s graveyard a few tombstones of no great antiquity still remain, and a small piece of masonry, apparently a fragment-the only fragment traceable of the church. A chamfered lintel of limestone, forming a wide angle arch over one of the windows in the present brewery buildings, bears the date 1632. The figures are cut in high relief, two on either side of the arch. This lintel belonged to the old Leper Hospital. Portion of the building itself, over a window of which the inscribed lintel is inserted, constituted very probably a part of the ancient hospital, and is in fact the only remnant of the latter now remaining. St. Mary Magdalen’s Chapel was apparently situated somewhere in the direction or neighbourhood of John’s Hill or Ballytruckle, in which direction also most of the suburban landed property of the hospital lay. The names of the persons found in possession of the hospital lands and buildings have a decidedly Cromwellian ring.- signed EDITOR (JWAHS).]

An inquisition taken before the Sheriff of the Co. of Waterford, the Mayor of the City of Waterford, Richard Power and James Bryver, Esqs, the 25th of Sept., 1661, at Waterford aforesaid, upon the oaths of honest and good men, etc., who being sworn upon the Holy Evangelists doe finde as followeth in these words, viz. :–
“”We find that the Lazar or Leaper House in the suburbs of Waterford, in St. Stephen’s Parish, was erected and founded by King John, and hath given the said house immunities and a charter to a Master, Bretheren, and Sisters of the said House for the maintenance of the Leapers for ever, and of which immunities they had a liberty that if any assault, battery, or bloodshed was committed within the precincts of said Lazar House, the Baron or Master of said House were sole judges of any such fact. We doe also find that it is further part of the immunities of said House, that if any man or woman in the City or Country of Waterford be infected with the Leprosie, and not taking their licence and freedom of members of the house to live abroad, and soe dying, their estate is forfeited to the said Leaper House. And we also find that there appertains to the House aforesaid as part of the perquisites thereunto belonging, the oblation of St. Mary Maudlin’s Chapel and the oblation of St. Stephen’s Church, together with all the christnings, mariages, and burials within the said Parish of St. Stephen’s Church, the house allowing to the Vicar of said Parish a competent annuity in consideration thereof, and the Mayor of Waterford did appoint a trusty man to oversee and receive the revenues and part out leases, by the name of Senescall in these latter adges, by what authority we know not.We find that Leaperstoun, in the Barony of Galtier and Parish of Kilmacom, esteemed were plough lands, with the tythes thereof, great and small, to belong to the said House, valued in the year 1641 at £106 sterg. a year, and so yielded for two or three years, recd. then by Francis Bryver, being Senescal of the said House, to the use of said Master, Bretheren, and Sisters of the said House. And since sometimes wast by reason of the wars, and sometimes sett at £50 a year, and sometimes more or less, which was received by the said Bryver during his life, and after him succeeded Baltazar Woodlock, he died in the year of the plague 1650, as Senescall, at which time the city was surrendered to the usurped power, who settled and recd. the revenues of the estate of the said House, since which to Colonell Laurence for 3 years at £30 pel annum, after to Mr. Andrew Lynn for 3 years at £70 per annum, having the tythes of Kilmoyhabe and a garden in Colpeck belonging to the Hospital of the Holy Ghost, to help him in his rent, and after Mr. Thomas Watts, from Mr. Lynn’s times until May last, at £80 per an., and after Mr. Andrew Lynn, who enjoys it to this day, by commission from Dublin, upon what account we know not.

We find that in the year 1641 there was £10 per ann. out of several houses and gardens in St. Stephen’s Parish coming yearly to the said Leaper House, and since these times several of the said houses were ruined, we find that they had tythes of the said Parish of St. Stephen’s besides.
We find that the old House of the Leapers is ruined, and the timber and materials thereof were taken away by Ensign Smart, Robert Woods, and others, and the same with the new House, a thatch house and a garden were sett by the then Commissioners of Revenue to Col. William Leigh at forty shillings a year, who sett them all to Mr. Hall at £4 st. per ann. We find also that Roger Coats, Walter Cantwell and Edmond Leary, masons, took away the tomb stones and paving stones that covered the graves of dead bodies in St. Stephen’s Church, and brought to Lott Leigh’s house to floor his kitchen therewith, and also brought some of the said stones to John Morris’ house, and also some of the said stones to Leftenant-Coll. Leighs Wheeler’s house, where now liveth Coll. Mullor, and also that William Cooper took away the stones of the said church yard.

We find and present that Mr. John Williams had a parcell of hay in St. Stephen’s church, and the rooffe of the said church fell upon the said hay; and he converted the timber thereof in creating a barne near it to his own use. We find and present that the 2/3 of the tythes of Kilbeartane and Ballymoris, in the Parish of ………. and Barony of Middle Third, in the said County of Waterford, did belong to the said House.
We find and present that the whole tythes of Brittas, in the Parish of Drumcannon, doth belong to the said House. We find and present that the parcell of land called Ballycadelan, leading from the Bridge of St. John upon the right hand leading to the meare of Ballytruckle, containing…………acres in parcel of the said Lazar House, with all the houses upon the Hill, and the two parcells called Parckcarraghmore and Parckcarraghbeg, with all the tythes great and small belonging to the said Leaper House. Also that a chapel called St. Mary Maudlin’s Chapel, in possession of John Hevens, who yielded a considerable profit to the sd. Leaper House by the oblation thereof, and turned and converted by John Hevens to a house, which lands and houses were sett for long leases at small rents by the said Lazar House in ancient times, and after when the leases came to the usurped authority they disposed of all these estates as we find to Coll. Laurence, Capt. Warde, Thomas Watts, who held from the Commissioners of Reveuue, at what rents we know not, and how they converted the same we know not, but only this. Thereafter, at present we find Butler’s mill, with the small meadow thereto adjoining, in the possession of Samuel Browne, at the rent of 30/- per annum.

We find a house and garden next to the said mill in the possession of Nicholas McEdmond Cottner, tenant to Capt. Thomas Bolton, at the yearly rent of 50/-. We find a tan house, garden, and yard of tan pitts, late in the possession of John Davis, at the rent of 20/- per ann. A house of Richard Farrell at the rent of 30/-. We find that. John Hevens holds several tan pitts and several houses and 1/2 f acre of land at 20/- per ann. William Hevens, house and garden at £3. Thomas Sherlock, house and garden at £3. Several other cabins, valued at 30/- per ann., upon the hill. A close called Parckcurraghmore, set to Widow Reidy at £3 per ann. Nicholas Lea pays for Parckcurraghbegg and for the house thereon 40/- per ann. ; Walter …….?? for one cabin, 4/- per an.

Per an. ; James Purcell, for one cabin, 10/- ; five pieces of land going down to the new mill, valued……… ..per an, £3. All the grounds between that and Ballytruck is set by Cart. Thomas Boulter at eleven pounds per an. Lazart Park, held by Mr. Watts, and Little Marsh beyond it southward of, we esteem to be worth £4 per an. Two small pieces of ground adjoining the new mill, with the small island adjoining, we esteem to be worth per an. 20/-. We find the Widow Ruddy pays for her cabin 6/- per an.
We also ……………….there are two Leapers in the Barony of Gallyen, one in Ballynvelly, named Juan McNicholas, and one Denby O’Flyne, of Ballyne Kill, who would not obey.We find and present that Juan Murphy, servt. unto the Widow Bennett, was enfected with the Leprosie, and in the time of the usurped power was presented to the then Commissioners of Revenue, who denyed to give her any releefe, wherefore she miscarried, and dyed a miserable condition. We have summoned Nicholas Walshe and Paul Aylwarde, who denyed to appear before us, as concerning they had most testimony ……………..concerning our charge.

We find and present that we have seen …………….past by the Master, Bretheren, and Sisters of the Lazar House unto John Butler and Nicholas Madden, in fee farm; bearing………………. 1477, of the mill, commonly called Butler’s Mill, with the ……………small meadow and all the land from the Bridge to Mary Maudlin’s Chapel, at 5/- per an., excepting a bean garden which was reserved for the use of the said Leapers’ House.

On the shelves in the National Archives of Ireland are some indices – books – and these books are indexed in a number of ways – the general title is ‘Index of Official Papers’. For most of the years, they have this title – but then for some of the years, there are Military or other indices with information separated from the general run of the mill official index for that year.


There is information in these as to the movements of various regiments – the simple fact of groups being overcome by cholera or some such gives us an idea of the times that diseases were present in certain places or all of Ireland. There are references to marriage records in here – requests from people for the effects of some other person, indicating relationships.

All the indices are indexed alphabetically – in the general indices then there may be a cross reference back to another letter of the alphabet in order to find the reference number.

The reference for any document is the number – what you see here has not been checked against the original and only covers items to ‘O’. As it stands, it simply gives you the researcher an idea of a resource that is not mentioned or rarely mentioned in lists of Irish genealogical resources.

Whilst the majority of th original documents may not be extant, the indices are still an extremely important resourse. To the best of my knowledge these have not yet been placed on microfilm.

Revenue Officers, 1709

This is a list of people employed by the Irish Revenue Service in 1709. The surnames are for the most part English, those of Anglo-Irishmen. Some of these people would have been Englishmen who came to Ireland and settled down. Many will have been moved from one place of employment to another. This list simply shows the area in which they were employed on June 24th, 1709. Each name is found attached to a particular district, these districts may have covered more than one county. Districts may have had sub-groupings depending on the occupation of the person.

Echoes From the Comeragh Mountains, Waterford

To the editor of the “Clonmel Chronicle” W. S.


Sir,-As I sat by my tent fire this evening, the spirit moved me to address a letter to a local journal, giving expression to the feelings of pleasure and gratitude which I experience at the great kindness shown to me by all those with whom I have come in contact. I came here partly on account of health, and partly to paint pictures of the wild and beautiful scenery. Before leaving London my wife (who has never visited the Emerald Isle) expressed doubts of my safety, and hoped I would not get shot; but I assured her that the Irish were kind and hospitable to strangers, and would cer-tainly not shoot an artist who could paint such good pictures as I intended to do of their beautiful country. I have travelled in many countries, but I never met with much real kind attention as I have met with here. An artist can’t get on without this, He is con-stantly wanting something – some of his apparatus carried, or himself (I have been carried through bogs) – subjects , both human and animal , as models – food and drink in out-of-way places and hours – and interest in his occupation. I find myself here among people who seem ever ready to help me, and if I thank them they say, “Sure it is nothing yer honour ; God help ye, and are ye not painting beautiful pictures of the country entirely?”

Before I set up a tent, I went to stay in a cottage by the side of Ischisolis (Stream of Light). Why, the very name was enough to tempt me to brave any discommforts-poetical as well as classical-“solis,” of course, being one of the numerous Latin words which occur in the Irish language. Well, I did pictures of Ischi-solis and Coumshenaun Lake, which is certainly one of the most weird, wild, and awfully picturesque places I ever saw; my host and hostess vied with each other in showing me attention, and I think felt really sorry when I left them. Had I been able to paint figures like a Wilkie or a Webster, I should not have painted the scenery, but the pretty daughter of my host, who, feeding the chickens, or fetching water, or mending the fire, or the stockings, in everything she did was unconsciously appearing like a perfect picture. One evening we had a visitor, who impressed me so much that I feel inclined to say a few words about him. A fine-looking young man, with such charming manners that he might have been a gentleman in disguise, came apparently to chat and smoke, but possibly with the idea of “coorting.” If so I fear he must have been disappointed, for the lovely damsel was even more quiet, cold, and dignified than usual; may be, however, that I am no judge of the courting here; but to return to the man-he was a casual reaper, earning a precarious 3s. a day-so superior in appearance and manners to any reaper I ever saw that I should have taken him for a man in a much higher position but for his dress. He spoke with striking intelligence about the war ‘in the East ; and after singing a song, which I praised very much, he said, “Oh yes, even a small national song of any country is sure to be interesting,” and we talked about Moore’s melodies, of whuich he knew much more than I did.

The puzzle to me was, that he should be so happy and contented with his present lot, for he seemed to me physically and mentally capable of quickly raising himself to a much higher position (and then he might marry the beautiful E–, who, by-the-bye, sang two songs, after being much importuned).

Generally speaking, I notice a want of robustness, which, I fancy, comes from poor feeding. Potatoes eaten alone are not good, but mashed up with butter, and as an accompaniment to other food, would do very well. Tea, as in Scotland, has suddenly become a necessary, and I suspect that often too much of it is taken. I should like to see tins of Australian meat consumed at all events once or twice a week, and more rice, cocoa, and coffee used. ,It is evident that a kindly disposed landed proprietor here can do any-thing he likes with the tenants, and I fear they would quicklydeteriorate under bad rule. This leads me to say a few words about the very unusual good feeling and cordiality which seems to exist between the Catholics and Protestants. I have tried to get some. of the small farmers and peasants to talk about re-ligion, but with the instinctive good taste and refine-ment which distinguish them, they evidently think it better not to say too much to a Protestant. Nothing will make me belileve that they look on me as an English Roman Catholic would do, as a doomed heretic. Our Clergy, I am told, are on the best terms, generally with the priests.

As I ammore than half Scotch, and an intense admirer of a people who have made the most wonderful advance in civilisation and material prosperity which history records, I hoe that I may be allowed to criticise them. Travelling in Scotland as an artist, I find less refinement and civility than I meet with here-in fact, conspicuous by their absence are the qualities which I admire so much among the Irish. I refer to the Lowland Scotch when I say this, and not to the Gaelic-speaking Highlanders, who are very similar to the Irish. I am glad to find, however, that the Scotch agents generally are praised for their fairness and kindness to the tenants.

The clannish feeling here is so strong, and the people are so devoted to a kind proprietor, whether absent or resident, that I rather wonder absentee proprietors, who have occasion to employ workmen and labourers, do not employ their own tenants. This would be a mutual advantage, for it is said that even some of my amiable friends here, who are lazy about work, will labour with a right good will when away from home, and they would surely do this for a popular pro-prietor, and as rivals to spoilt and overpaid English workmen.

I am taking home many unfinished pictures and studies of the varied and picturesque scenery about here; and often, when working upon them through the winter, shall I think of the many small and great acts of kindness which I have received from poor and rich in this, to me, most interesting country. The tent was kindly lent to me by a doctor, whose valuable and gratuitous services among the poor here are much spoken of. Without mentioning his name, I may say that the echoes chiefly come from Coumgouha (the Lake of Echoes) and from Coumshenaun and the Mahon Glen, where the good deeds of those who have been the owners of the land for centuries are too well known for me to mention them.

The Manor of Kilsheelan

A note published in the Journal of the Waterford Archaeological and Historical Society, 1898.


In the last number of the “Journal” under the above heading; I mentioned that the Desmonds probably lost the Manor in the reign of Elizabeth, when their great possessions were confiscated. This I now find was not the case, but that the Manor passed by marriage to the Butlers of Ormond. James Butler, ninth Earl of Ormond married Joan, Daughter and Heir to James the 11th Earl of Desmond, with whom he had the Manors of Clonmell, Killsherlane and Kilfeacle in Tipperary. (b) After Lord Ormond’s death, Joan married Sir Francis Bryan, Knight Marshal and Lord Justice of Ireland, who died in Clonmel, second of February, 1549; she married thirdly Gerald Fitz Gerald, 16th Earl of Desmond, and dying in 1564, was buried at Askeaton.

Fair Towns of Ireland, 1834

The Fair towns were very important towns and people walked for miles on a fair day to go to sell their produce. Until the Fair Day people would have no money and so once the produce or the animals were sold then the bills would be paid. The Fair towns in any county were major towns, places the population concentrated on, those that were important because of their fairs in the past may no longer be of any importance in a county today. Listed below are the names of the fair towns in each county as per Wilson’s Directory of Ireland, 1834. This list is also important in that it not only gives us the name sof the towns, but we can see variations on the way they were spelled in 1834 compared to the present spelling.
