I have indexed the names of children and parents from the Roman Catholic Parish register of Ardstraw West, Co.

Baptism Records, Gambonsfield, Kilcash, Co. Tipperary, 1840

This page features free baptism records for Gambonsfield, Kilcash, Co. Tipperary in the year 1840. The records are in alphabetical order of the child’s surname.

Dr. Jane Lyons’ Notes

Here I have a slight problem in that I have labelled the excel file ‘Gammonsfield’ with no mention of Kilcash and normally I give the film the name that I see written on the parish records in the film. It could easily be that I made a mistake and thought I had two m’s instead of an m and a b in the name but I would not have missed out on the Kilcash. That being said, the baptismal records for this parish begin on Jan 1st, 1840-Feb 1st, 1856 and then Feb 16th, 1856-Dec 27th, 1880 and I give you those records for that first year, 1840. Placenames are not given in the parish records for this year, the records are in Latin, meaning that the first name is given in Latin and the surname in English. I did not take the names of the witnesses or sponsors. There are two films on which there are records for this parish and their references in the National Library of Ireland are 2452 and 2453. It seems that the LDS does not have copies of these films. All question marks indicate where I had a problem reading a letter or deciding on a name. The names are sorted alphabetically by that of the child, the names of children for which I had a problem with the surname come before the alphabetical sorting.

Baptism Records, Kildimo, Pallaskenry, Co. Limerick, 1846

This parish is simply listed as Kildimo (Pallaskenry) in the book I have, but, on the name of the parish records on the microfilm in the National Library of Dublin, the word Chaple is also used.

The Roman Catholic baptismal parish records for this parish begin on Jan 1st, 1831, these continue until Nov 21st, 1845.  They begin again on 7th Jan, 1846 and continue until Dec 31st, 1880.  The National Library of Ireland film ref for this set of parish records is 2419 for baptisms up to 1880.  There is another microfilm with records for this parish on it that is 2420.  According to the source I have the LDS do not have copies of the microfilm for these records

I am giving you the copies of 6 months of records going from 7th January, 1846 to 5th July 1846.  I have taken the names of some sponsors but they were only for families I was interested in and I am not including them here.  Townland names were NOT given in this set of parish records.  All first names and surnames are as in the original parish records.  I have NOT changed any spellings.  Any question marks indicate places where I was unsure of a letter or the actual name, I THOUGHT it should be spelled or written as I give it.  No guarantee is made that these records are all correct, everyone makes mistakes at some stage or other.

If you have any problems with deciphering names then please see my article on Names at


This section of these parish records are in Latin.  That means that the first name is given in Latin and the surname is in English.  Please note as I have said before in many places, Irish parish records were NOT written in Irish even in areas where Irish was the spoken language.  The Irish spoke Latin and parish records were kept in Latin in many areas, BUT by Latin we mean the first names, surnames and placenames stayed in English.

The first few surnames that I was not sure of are at the top of the list below.  All other surnames are listed alphabetically.

If you want to know more about the information on these records then you can view the film in Dublin or hire a professional genealogist such as myself

Lieutenant Kirwan Stabbing, 1845

A serious accident occurred at Hounslow barracks on Sunday evening. Lieutenant-Colonel Harcourt Masters of the the Light Dragoons gave an entertainment to his brother officers in celebration of his recent promotion from the rank of major. After dinner the officers generally amused themselves with wrestling, and eventually with fencing, and Quarter-master Tarleton received a wound in the side from the sword of Lieutenant Kirwan. The surgeons of the Regiment immediately attended the wounded officer who was considered to be in a precarious state.

Lieutenant Kirwan was next day, by the military authorities at the Horse Quarters placed under arrest. Quartermaster Tarleton’s deposition was taken in writing by a magistrate and afterwards, the evidence of Mr. Frogley, the surgeon as to the nature of the wound and the state of the wounded man. A warrant was then issued for the apprehension of Lieutenant Martin Kirwan on a charge of cutting and wounding. Mr. Frogley, the surgeon, informed the local magistrates that he was unable to pronounce the wounded officer out of danger. Lieutenant-Colonel Daly expressed his readiness to enter into any amount of bail for the appearance of Lieutenant Kirwan. The Bench said the charge was of so serious a nature that they could not take bail, and it was their duty to remand the prisoner to Tothill-fields Bridewell until the fate of Quartermaster Tarleton can be ascertained. The prisoner accompanied by some of the officers of the regiment was then removed by a police officer in a fly to Tothill-fields Bridewell.

From a source on which reliance may be placed the following version of the occurrence has been obtained : – During the entertainment given to the officers on the evening of Sunday, between eleven and twelve o’clock, some words arose between Lieut. Kirwan and another officer, when Lieut. Kirwan left the room in a great passion, declaring he would cross swords with the officer who had offended him. Quarer master Tarleton followed him to his room, and endeavoured to prevent him leaving his apartment with a drawn sword in his hand, when by some means the unfortunate occurrence took place. Lieut. Kirwan was intoxicated at the time, and during some wrestling which took place after dinner, had been thrown twice with great violence on his head. The officer between whom and Lieut. Kirwan the disagreement had taken place was Captain T. Fane of the same regiment. Quarter-master Tarleton is a married man and has a family of three children. His father was Quartermaster of the 18th Light Dragoons for many years. He has since been declared out of danger and Lieutenant Kirwan has been admitted to bail.

Flax Improvement Society and the End of the Ballinasloe Show, 1845

Meeting of the Flax Improvement Society
Pursuant to public notice, a meeting of the Flax Improvement Society of Ireland was held today in the court house at one o’clock. Nearly all the nobility and gentry in the town were present. The Earl of Erne took the chair.

His lordship called upon the secretary to read the report of the society’s proceedings for the last year, and observed, that there were two or three gentlemen present who would be happy to answer any questions asked them regarding the cultivation of flax.

Mr. Wardham then read the report, which was regarded as most satisfactory.

Mr. Walker from the co. Donegal, who cultivates annually fifty to seventy acres of flax, came forward at the request of the noble chairman to state the result of hi practice. He said that after many years experience he found that there was a clear profit of at least £20 per acre upon an average crop, after the payment of all expenses, from five and a half packs of seed. His rotation of crops was potatoes, wheat, flax and clover. It was a crop which gave more employment to the poor than any other, and at a season when the country people were not otherwise engaged, and it was by no means an exhausting one unless to itself. His opinion therefore was that it should not be sown a second time in the same land for a period of seven years, and when cut, it should be, if possible, laid on new cut meadow land. As regarded seed, he considered that it was best when taken before the flax was perfectly ripe, and its being allowed to ripen did not at all injure the fibre (applause)

Some very interesting conversation then took place respecting the merits of home and foreign flax for seed. The prevailing opinion appeared to be in favour of the native article. Several cultivators, from different parts of the country, stated it to be so from their experience, and observed that it was almost always the successful seed when offered for competition with foreign seeds at local shows.

Ballinasloe, Friday
The proceedings of the show closed last evening, or more properly speaking this moring, with the usual ball, and a more splendid affair, both as regards numbers and respectability, never took place in any provincial town in Ireland, or, perhaps I might say, even in the metropolis. The evening was most unpropitious. No less than five hundred persons promenaded the rooms, one fourth of whom, at least, were members of the aristocratic families in town.
