The Perceval Family

We descend directly on our mother's side from Rev. John Pennefather of Newport, Co. Tipperary, and from his first, unnamed, wife.

The second wife of Rev. John Pennefather was Elizabeth Percival (1765 - 1851) - the couple married on 19th December 1789 in St. John’s,  Newport, Co. Tipperary.  Elizabeth Percival was the daughter of William Percival and Anne Waller of Wilton, Newport, Co. Tipperary.

William Percival was the son of Robert Perceval of Laricor and Knighstsbrook, Co. Meath,  who had married Jane Westby, daughter of Nicholas Westby of High Park, Wicklow, on 13th June 1717.   Nicholas Westby was the Collector of Customs in Ennis, Co. Clare, and married Frances Stepney of Durrow in 1698.  As part of the marriage settlement, he received the estate of High Park in Co. Wicklow.  Nicholas Westby died on 19th October 1716.

William Perceval's brother, Robert Perceval Junior, the eldest son of Robert Perceval and Jane Westby of Laricor and Knightsbrook,Co. Meath, married his cousin, Bridget Mary Warden, who was the widowed daughter of George Westby.

Robert Perceval Junior died in 1756 leaving Robert Perceval who settled at Carrickmakeegan, Leitrim, having married Frances Armstrong in St. Mary's, Dublin, on 3rd March 1775, and Westby Perceval who married Jane Elizabeth Canning in St. Mary's on 14th December 1776.
Robert Perceval and Frances Armstrong of Knightsbrook and Carrickmakeegan had Robert Perceval, Westby Perceval who married Charlotte Wilhelmina Hawkshaw (1792 - 16th September 1856), the daughter of Colonel Thomas Hawkshaw, William Perceval and Anna Maria Perceval who married the widowed Colonel Thomas Hawkshaw of the 22nd Bengal Regiment in October 1807  in Marylebone Church.  Anna Maria Hawkshaw, widow of the late Major-General Hawkshaw, died at Perth, Scotland, on 20th July 1854.
The first wife of Major General Thomas Hawkshaw was Gertruida Christina Van Renen.

A marriage licence was issued in England for Westby Percival and Charlotte Wilhelmina Hawkshaw on 12th January 1813.   From the papers - In March 1813, in Marylebone, W. Perceval of Knightsbrook, Meath, married Charlotte Wilhelmina, eldest daughter of Major General Hawkshaw of the India Company's Service.
Major General Thomas Hawkshaw died on 30th June 1819 in London.

Westby Perceval of Knightsbrook died in Dublin on 17th March 1850, aged 74, and was buried in Mount Jerome - also buried here were his son, Robert Sommerville Percival and a daughter Gertrude Frances McMullan.

26th November 1857 - in Bathheaston, Lt. C.J. Godby HEICS to Millicent Harriatt, youngest daughter of the late Westby Perceval of Knightsbrook.

On 5th June 1851, Westby Hawkshaw Percival of Knightsbrook, son of Westby Percival and grandson of Maj-Gen Hawkshaw married Sarah Brook Bailley, daughter of John Bailley MD of Brooklands, Essex.

Who was this?  On 17th August 1856, the death occurred in Jamaica of Robert Perceval, eldest son of William Perceval of Knightsbrook, Co. Meath and nephew of the late Major-General Hawkshaw HEICS. ('Evening Freeman', 13th October 1856.)

Another son of Robert Percival and Jane Westby, who had married 13th June 1717, was Major William Perceval of 103rd Foot who married Anne Waller, the daughter of Richard Waller of Newport, Co. Tipperary.  In 1784 William Perceval was living at Wilton, Newport, Tipperary.  A Captain William Perceval of 103rd Foot died aged 38 in Stradbally in 1793 and was buried at the rock of Dunamase.

Major William Perceval of Wilton, Newport, Tipperary, and Anne Waller had:

1) Major Robert Perceval of Curragoa, Jamaica, West Indies, Major in the 18th Regiment of Royal Irish.  He had died by 1837 - he fell off a horse - when his daughter, Emily Perceval, married Thomas Palmer.
Robert Perceval's children were William Perceval, Robert Perceval, John Pennefather Perceval of the 17th Foot, Jane Perceval and Emily Perceval who married Thomas Palmer Junior of Summerhill, Castlebar, Mayo and Molesworth Street, in  St. Peter's, on 18th March 1837.  At the time of this wedding, the  bride was living at 128 Baggot Street which the home of  her uncle and aunt Captain Westby and Margaret Perceval.  The witnesses were the family solicitor John Vincent (who was named by Westby Perceval as a relation) and Richard Lysaght, Westby Perceval's nephew.

Major Robert Perceval of the 18th Royal Irish Regiment of Foot was named in his brother, Captain Westby Perceval's will which named Robert's widow as Antoinette Percival and his  children as John, James, Elizabeth and Emily Percival.   T
he LDS website notes the birth of one of these children in Jamaica - Elizabeth Perceval was christened in Trelawny, Cornwall, Jamaica, to Captain Robert Percival and to Antoinette Chevivia or Cheverer, on 20th June 1812.   A son, who perhaps didn't survive, was named as Robert George Perceval, and who was christened in Kingstown, Jamaica, on 13th July 1813 by Major Robert Perceval and Antoinette Perceval.

On 26th July 1849, son Lt. John Pennefather Perceval of the 17th Foot died aged 29 in Ramsgate from chest disease contracted during nine years' service in India.  Son of the late Major Perceval of the 18th Regiment, and nephew of the late Colonel William Perceval formerly of the 67th Regiment.

2) Captain Westby Perceval, Royal Navy, married Margaret Lysaght, daughter of Limerick solicitor Thomas Lysaght and Catherine Vallancey, in 1817.

Captain Westby Perceval was created a Knight of the Imperial Austrian Order of Leopold. He had been made a lieutenant in 1800 and was promoted to the command of the Paulina on 14th September 1808. He was subsequently posted to the Meditarranean and was conferred with the Austrian order for his service in the Adriatic War in 1813 and 1814.

In 1821, Captain Westby Perceval was living at 41 Molesworth Street before moving permanently to 128 Lower Baggot Street.

On  6th March 1834 at the residence of Captain Westby Percival RN in Baggot Street (128 Baggot Street) the death occurred of Catherine Vallancy Lysaght, daughter of the late Thomas Lysaght of Co. Clare and of Leeson Street, and of his wife Catherine Vallancey, daughter of Colonel Charles Vallancey.  

From 'The Bank of England Wills Extracts', and from the original document lodged in the National Archives UK Discovery collection, the will of Westby Percival of His Majesty's Ship Adair (?) of Woolwich, dated May 1835, with a codicil of 10th June 1835.  The executors were wife Margaret Percival, née Lysaght, his brother William Percival, solicitor John Hare of Fitzwilliam Street,  and relation and solicitor John Vincent of Upper Baggot Street.    Probate was granted on 8th November 1836.

The will mentioned bonds from Rev. J. Penefather, who was married to Westby's sister, Mary Perceval, relation-by-marriage Maj.Gen. Hawkshaw,  the late Thomas Bouchier of 123 Baggot Street, and Westby Perceval, presumably one of Westby's relations rather then himself.

Westby's widow, Margaret Perceval, née Lysaght, was to get the house at 128 Baggot Street and special provision was made to Emily Perceval, the daughter of his brother William Perceval,  clearly a favourite niece.

Legacies were left to his sister Mrs. Jane Bourke, the two unnamed daughters of his late sister Ann Delany  of Limerick, his brother  Lt.Colonel William Percival, his two nieces Charlotte Hunter and Margaret Hunter who had become Margaret Carey by the time of the codicil, to nephew Richard Lysaght Junior son of the late Thomas Lysaght (Thomas Lysaght had a brother Richard, who was uncle of Westby's nephew mentioned in the will), and three nieces, Charlotte, Margaret and Elizabeth Lysaght, daughters of the aforementioned late Thomas Lysaght,  Miss Elizabeth Perceval, John and James Perceval and Emily Perceval, all four the children of his late brother Robert Perceval of the 18th Royal Irish Regiment of Foot whose widow, Antoinette Percival, was also provided for.
A  niece was Alice Perceval, daughter of his brother William Perceval.   Another niece was named as Emma Evans, the daughter of  Thomas and Clare/Clara Evans, Clare Evans, née Pennefather, being the daughter of Westby's sister, Elizabeth Perceval who had married Rev. John Pennefather of the The Glebe, Newport, Tipperary.

'Saunders Newsletter' of 27th August 1817 noted that Westby Perceval, who had recently married Miss Lysaght of Leeson Street, had arrived at his sister-in-law's house, Mrs. Hunter of Charlotte's Quay (Limerick), with his bride.   Mrs. Hunter might have been a sister of Captain Westby Perceval's wife Margaret Lysaght, since her father, Thomas Lysaght, moved from Limerick to Dublin in about 1790.

Westby Percival also left his gold watch to his nephew-in-law Rear-Admiral Henry Vansittart  of Bisham Abbey who had married  his sister's daughter, Mary Charity Pennefather (daughter of Elizabeth Perceval and Rev. John Pennefather of Newport) in 1809.

A small legacy was given to his dear friend Captain Philip Percival of the Grenadier Guards (a relation?) and to his doctor and housemaid;  land in Ballyspellane, and Carrowduff, Co. Clare, was mentioned, and, in relation to this land, William Westby of Merrion Square, Dublin.  William Westby of Merrion Square and Thornhill, Co.Wicklow was the son of William Westby and Mary Jones, this older William Westby being the brother of Jane Perceval who had married Robert Perceval of Knightsbrooke on 13th June 1717.

Westby Perceval of 128 Baggot Street was buried in St. Peter's on 20th November 1835.

Widow Margaret Perceval, née Lysaght, died on 15th March 1862 and her will administered by John Vincent of Charlton, Co. Dublin.   John Vincent of Charlton and of Raglan Road died 22nd May 1869 by suicide when he threw himself under a train, with probate to children  John Albert Vincent and spinster Mary Jane Vincent.  John Albert Vincent was born 4th November 1839 to John and Catherine Vincent of Leeson Street.

3) Lt-Colonel William Perceval CB of the Rifle Brigade, formerly of the 67th Regiment, who died in Brussels in January 1837.  Lt-Col William Percival CB married Charlotte Alice, daughter of William Henry Palmer, Baronet of Castle Lackin, Mayo and of Kenure House, Co.Dublin.
The marriage took place in Bruges, Netherlands (ie: Belgium) on 19th February 1822.  In December 1821 William's brother, Captain Westby Perceval of Molesworth Street, wrote to the Chief Secretary in Dublin Castle on his brother's behalf requesting assistance to procure a certificate of consent for him to marry in the Netherlands.

William Perceval was named in his brother Westby Perceval's 1835 will.  Having joined the 67th Reg in 1795, he was subsequently posted to Jamaica, then served in Spain. He was promoted to rank of Lt-Colonel of the 67th regiment in 1815.

Following his death in January 1837, his widow, Charlotte Alice married in London on 19th July 1838,  Pierce Francis Barron of Sarahville, Co. Waterford.
Pierce F. Barron had earlier, on 18th June 1826, married Anne de Stranker, niece of Countess de Woronzoff.  His daughter by this marriage was Mary, Countess Constabilie. Under a deed of 10th March 1826, James Barron settled Waterford estates upon his son, Pierce F. Barron.

The unmarried Frederica Augusta Perceval, late of Brighton and of Bruges, Brussells, died 3rd August 1875 in Bruges, and probate was granted to her widowed mother, Charlotte Alice Barron of Brighton.  Charlotte Alice Barron failed to administer the will, so administration was subsequently granted to Frederica's sister, Alice Florence Kearney, wife of Robert Cecil Kearney of Ballyvasey, Co. Mayo.

From 'Dublin Evening Post', 22nd December 1855 - Robert Cecil Kearney of Her Majesty's 97th Regiment, third son of the late Robert Kearney, JP of Ballinvilla House, Co. Mayo,  to Alice Florence, eldest daughter of the late Colonel Wm. Percival CB, Rifle Brigade, grand-daughter of the late Sir William Palmer Bart., and niece of Sir Roger Palmer, Bart., Kenure, Co. Dublin.   Alice Florence Perceval had been born in Italy in 1830, and in 1851 had been living with her widowed mother, Charlotte Alice Barron, at 63 Bridge House, Hampton.  In 1855 when she married Robert Cecil Kearney, she was living at Newport, Tipperary.

4) Elizabeth Perceval who married Rev. John Pennefather as his second wife.

5) Jane Perceval married Captain John Robert Bourke of Moatville, Cloneska, Co. Tipperary. They had a daughter, Maria Theresa Bourke who married, in 1832 in Eglish, Co. Tipperary, Edward Burke Roche before emigrating to Australia.  She died in 1893 in Greymouth, New Zealand.  From 'Grey River Argus' of 6th July 1893:  'Maria Theresa, relict of the late Edward Roche of Tourlager (Vauclaus) Co. Limerick, and daughter of the late Captain John Robert Bourke and Jane Percival of Moatville, Co. Tipperary, and second cousin to the late Sir Richard Bourke, Governor General of the colony of New South Wales and first cousin to the late Genreal Sir John Pennefather,  a colonist of 60 years.'

NB: Sir Richard Bourke was of Thornfields, Co. Limerick.

In 1852, as shown on Griffiths Valuation, the widowed Jane Bourke, née Perceval, (or perhaps her daughter) was the owner of approximately 300 acres at Cloneska.   Later on 27th November 1874 the Landed Estates Courts, which dealt with the sale of properties indebted by the famine, put the lands of Moatville up for sale.  The petitioners were named as Falkiner Harding and Clare Evans.  Clare Evans was Clare Pennefather who  had married Thomas Evans and who was the daughter of Rev. John Pennefather and Elizabeth Perceval.
The owners of Moatville in 1874 were named as the sisters, Antonia Jane Belinda Bourke (born 20th October 1840 on the River Ganges and baptised in Agra, India) and Anna Mary Stuart (born 30th October 1843 in Umballa), wife of the English soldier, Henry Benson Stuart.  Both sisters had  been born to the soldier, Lieutenant Theophilus H.R. Bourke of the 31st regiment (1815 - 1843) who had married Mary Ann Lapeth in Kent on 28th April 1836, and who was most probably the son of Captain John Robert Bourke and of Jane Perceval, being contemporary with Maria Theresa Bourke.

6) Ann Perceval married .....Delany of Limerick.  Daughter Anne Percival Delany of 128 Baggot Street married on 31st July 1835, William Ottiwell of Sinnott Place. Witnesses:  Francis Walker John and Francis Edward Lacy.   Anne Percival Ottiwell of Upper Dorset Street died in July 1836. Her daughter, Anne Catherine Ottiwell, had been born in Dorset Street on 29th June 1836 - she would marry Captain Henry Robe Saunders, son of Robert John Saunders of Woolwich, in St. Peter's on 4th February 1858, the ceremony being performed by the bride's cousin, Rev. William Colles Moore of Carnew, son of Rev. Thomas Ottiwell Moore of Wexford.  Anne Percival Ottiwell's father, William Ottiwell, was living at 37 Rathmines Road at the time of the wedding.   Anne Percival Ottiwell married, secondly, the barrister Campbell Gaussen of Derry, son of David Gaussen, on 10th October 1861.

The Lysaght family of Limerick, Clare and Dublin:
Mary Lysaght, daughter of John Lysaght, 1st Lord Lisle of Mountnorth, and of Catherine Deane, married Kingsmill Pennefather in 1754.  In 1789, their son, Rev. John Pennefather of Newport, Tipperary, married, as his second wife, Elizabeth Percival, the daughter of Captain William Percival of the 103rd Foot and Anne Waller, daughter of Richard Waller of Newport.

Elizabeth Percival's brother was Captain Westby Percival who also married a member of a Lysaght family, although I have no idea if this Lysaght family was related to the Lysaght family of Mountnorth, Co. Cork.  Captain Westby Perceval's wife was Margaret Lysaght, daughter of the barrister Thomas Lysaght.  The couple married in St. Peter's, Dublin, in August 1817.   Margaret's father, the solicitor Thomas Lysaght, made his will in 1811, and his will gave two addresses for him, both Leeson Street, Dublin, and Ennis, Co. Clare.

Another son of the solicitor Thomas Lysaght was Richard Lysaght who had been admitted to Trinity aged 15 on 10th November 1790 - he had been born in Co. Limerick to the solicitor Thomas Lysaght. In the 1830's, Richard Lysaght was an attorney, firstly at 17 Leeson Street, then at 11 Pembroke Street. Richard Lysaght, late of Limerick,  died on 18th June 1845 in Lower Pembroke Street aged 72. His wife had died there on 9th November 1838.

Earlier, Richard Lysaght had given an affadavit, dated 10th August 1826, to confirm the loss of certain legal papers which had been entrusted to his father Thomas Lysaght by the Butler family, who had employed him as law-agent;  these family papers had been lost when Thomas Lysaght sold up and moved from Limerick to Dublin in about 1790. Richard confirmed in his 1826 affadavit that his brother, Thomas Lysaght Junior, had been in the legal business with his father but both were now dead.

'Saunders Newletter' of 30th October 1821 reported that a bill belonging to the Lysaghts had been lost in the post. Payment was stopped so the bill was now worthless.....'John Balfe's Draft on Messrs.Murphy of Smithfield in favour of James Lysaght for 100l. dated 8th of October....1821...said Bill was enclosed in a Richard Lysaght Esq.,Ennis...information may be sent to Captain Percival, 14 Molesworth St...'   The daughter of Thomas Lysaght Senior was Margaret Lysaght, wife of Captain Westby Perceval who, in 1821, lived at 41 Molesworth Street.  

(It's unclear who James Lysaght was.  I went through the register of Drumcliffe Church, Ennis, in the National Archives.  The microfilm covered the years 1785 to 1829 and showed up the following Lysaght entries who may or may not be related to the Lysaght family discussed in this post:

9th March 1796 - the baptism of John, son of Mr. James Lysaght and his wife.

23rd February 1799 - the baptism of Catherine, daughter of Francis Lysaght and Charlotte his wife.

1803, date faded - the baptism of James, son of James and Jane Lysaght.

14th May 1808 - the burial of Mrs. Lysaght, wife of Mr. James Lysaght.

29th November 1817 - the marriage of Serjeant Thomas Hodson of the 20th to Margaret Lysaght of Glinfield, spinster. License.  Glinfield was difficult to decipher and might not be accurate.

7th December 1817 - George Inglis, assistant surgeon of 93rd Reg. to Miss Catherine Lysaght of Ennis. License.)

So Thomas Lysaght Senior, solicitor of Limerick, then Leeson St, Dublin, had Richard Lysaght of 17 Leeson St and then Pembroke Street in about 1775 and who might also have operated in Ennis, Margaret who married Captain Westby Perceval in 1817, and Thomas Lysaght Junior who had been in business with his father.

There was also a Patrick Lysaght associated with this family, as evidenced by Deed 763-263-518003 which I read through in the Registry of Deeds.  Dated 15th June 1821, it recited that, under an earlier deed of 10th October 1785, the late Nicholas Westby of Dublin had leased land in Co. Clare to the late Thomas Lysaght of Dublin and to Patrick Lysaght for three lives of which, now, in 1821, only one was living, namely solicitor Richard Lysaght of York Street.  
The current 1821 deed involved Patrick Lysaght of Annefield (Ennistymon), Co. Clare, Captain Westby Perceval and his wife Margaret (née Lysaght).  The deed maintained that Patrick Lysaght was entitled to half the lands of Canaduff, Derreen and Drominecalluragh (?) as tenant in common with Richard Lysaght of York Street, Dublin, under the 1785 lease made between the late Nicholas Westby of Dublin and the late Thomas Lysaght of Dublin.  Margaret Perceval, wife of Captain Westby Perceval, had, in 1806, obtained a judgement against Patrick Lysaght for £1000 and, after her marriage, said judgment was revived - Patrick Lysaght was therefore to assign the said lands to Westby Perceval.

'Saunders Newsletter' of 27th August 1817 noted that Westby Perceval, who had recently married Miss Lysaght of Leeson Street, had arrived at his sister-in-law's house, Mrs. Hunter of Charlotte's Quay (Limerick), with his bride.   Mrs. Hunter might have been another daughter of Thomas Lysaght, solicitor, since I know of no Perceval/Hunter marriages.  She had two known daughters, Margaret and Charlotte Hunter, both named as beneficiaries in their uncle Westby Perceval's will.   A Mrs. Hunter, widow of the excise office Robert Hunter, died in Limerick in June 1824.  ('Waterford Mail', 19th June 1824.)

The son of Thomas Lysaght, Thomas Lysaght Junior, had married Catherine Vallancey, youngest daughter of Colonel Charles Vallancey L.L.D., in October 1799.  The ceremony was performed by Rev. Dr. Kearney of Trinity College, Dublin. ('Saunders Newsletter', 23 October 1799.)

Thomas Lysaght Junior was the register and law agent to the Royal Dublin Society, a job he received through the influence of his father-in-law, Colonel Vallancey, and died of typhus fever in Ennis in 1819.   His widow, Catherine Lysaght, née Vallancey, died in January 1848 at Bayview near Kilrush, Co. Clare.

Edmond Cole Bowen, attorney of Limerick, married Margaret, the second daughter of attorney Thomas Lysaght Junior and Catherine Vallancey in 1828.  Edmond Cole Bowen was the son of Ralph Cole Bowen and Mary Doherty of Bowen's Court, Co. Cork. Mary Doherty was the daughter of Edmond Doherty of Mount Bruis, Co Tipperary.  Along with Edmond Cole Bowen who married Margaret Lysaght in 1828, Ralph Cole Bowen and Mary Doherty had Henry Cole Bowen who married Anne Jane Hely, the daughter of Hampden Hely, Charles Cole Bowen, Jane Cole Bowen, Mary Cole Bowen of Baggot Street who married in 1828 the Venerable Archdeacon Pryce Peacock of Limerick, and Elizabeth Cole Bowen.
In 1828, at the residence of her mother in Georges Square, Kilrush, Co.Clare, Margaret Cole Bowen gave birth to a son, Edmond Bowen. Her husband, Edmond Cole Bowen died the following year in 1829.
The widowed Margaret Cole Bowen, second daughter of Thomas Lysaght, married secondly Basil Lukey Davoren of Ennis.

Basil's brother, George Davoren, married Charlotte Lysaght, also a daughter of Thomas Lysaght Junior and Catherine Vallancy.  The children of George and Charlotte Davoren were, amongst others, Catherine Frances Vallancy Davoren and Westby Percival Davoren.
George and Basil Lukey Davoren were the sons of Basil and Anne Davoren of Ennis, Co. Clare.

The eldest daughter of Thomas Lysaght Junior and Catherine Vallancey of Leeson Street was Catherine Vallancy Lysaght who died in Baggot Street in 1834.

The son of Thomas Lysaght Junior and Catherine Vallancey was Major Thomas Vallancey Lysaght. In May 1820, one year after his father had died of typhus in Ennis, Co. Clare, Thomas V. Lysaght applied to enter the British Bengal Army as a cadet.  He was nominated by a director of the East India Company, Edward Parry and recommended by Captain Henry Vansittart of the Royal Navy.  His application papers (viewable via Find My Past - British India Office Births and Baptisms) confirms that he was the son of Thomas Lysaght, lately deceased, a solicitor who resided in Dublin.  Born in St. Peter's parish on 8th March 1804, he had received a classical education at the Feinaigle Institute. His next of kin was his widowed mother Catherine Lysaght.

Edward Parry of Gower Street, who nominated him, wrote a letter on his behalf to the army - 'My dear sir, I have prepared Mr Abington the proper officer at the India House who will be ready to receive Mr. Lysaght, get him passed through the forms of the India House and enable him to find a ship to sail in the course of the month....Pray remember me to my daughter, to Mrs. Henry Vansittart and to all our friends at Bisham....'
Edward Parry of the East India Company had married Emilia Vansittart, the daughter of Henry Vansittart and Amelia Morse;  Edward Parry's nephew was the Captain Henry Vansittart who had recommended Thomas Vallancey Lysaght as a cadet in 1820.   The Vansittart family of Bisham were close relations of Rear-Admiral Henry Vansittart who had married Mary Charity Pennefather, daughter of Rev. John Pennefather and Elizabeth Perceval of Newport, Tipperary, in 1809.

Thomas Vallancey Lysaght married his first wife, Fanny Sophia Hamilton in Dacca, Bengal, on 3rd April 1829.  The witnesses were members of the bride's family, Emily Anna Hamilton, Lt-Col. Charles W. Hamilton Charlotte Hamilton.
On 22nd January 1833, Thomas Vallancey Lysaght married, secondly, Maria O' Halloran in Dinapore, India.

Thomas Vallancey Lysaght and Maria O'Halloran had four daughters, all of whom were orphaned by 1849 and in receipt of an army pension accordingly.  They were Fanny Percival Lysaght born 13th March 1834, Maria Vallancey Lysaght born 17th August 1837, Caroline Bayly Lysaght born 20th April 1840 and Margaret Pennifather Lysaght born 19th April 1842.

Major Thomas Vallancey Lysaght's second wife, Maria O'Halloran was a member of the Limerick O'Halloran family - when Caroline Bayly Lysaght died in Leamington aged 18 in 1858, she was noted as the 3rd daughter of the late Thomas V. Lysaght and granddaughter of the late Major-General Sir Joseph O'Halloran.  Folowing the premature death of the Lysaght girls' parents in India, they had been taken in  by their uncle and aunt in Leamington, Lt. John Nicholas O'Halloran and Elizabeth Pringle.

John and Thomas Williams of Grafton Street and Lower Sackville Street

This is another post about Williams families of Dublin as part of my ongoing search for the father of our great-great grandfather, Richard Williams of 17 Eden Quay and Dundrum. John Williams had died by the time of Richard's wedding in 1847, and nothing further is known about him.
In this post, I'm concentrating on Thomas Williams  (1779 - 1858) of Sackville Street who was initially in business with a John Williams.

Most of the Williams who contributed in 1827 to the early capital of the fledgling City of Dublin Steam Packet Company were members of the Williams family who founded the company.
The original founder, Charles Wye Williams, paid in £8000, while his brother, Richard Williams of Drumcondra Castle, paid in £8700.  Their father was Thomas Williams of Hampton Lodge, Drumcondra, who paid in £5000.
Thomas William's cousin was a London lawyer, John Jeffery Williams whose three eldest sons moved from Holborn to Dublin in the early 19th century, and these three were also listed as shareholders in 1827 - John Dignam Williams, a merchant of Eustace Street, paid in £300;  his brother, the banker of Dame Street, Thomas Hutchins Williams, paid £4400, and lawyer William Williams of College Green, who was the youngest of the three brothers, paid in £200.  

Their father, John Jeffery Williams, had a second younger family by his second wife, Mary Oliver, one of whom was born in 1812, three years before John Jeffery's premature death, and who was named as Richard - this may or may not be our great-grandfather, who lived at the CDSPCo's Dublin headquarters at 17 Eden Quay, where he worked as the company's bookkeeper.  In 1815, the year of his death, John Jeffery Williams had a son, Henry Jeffery Williams, who also worked as a bookkeeper, but I know little more about this man. Our great-great grandfather, the bookkeeper Richard Williams (1812 - 1885) of Eden Quay, married our great-great grandmother, Geraldine O'Moore Creighton (1811 - 1888), in 1847, and named his deceased father as a gentleman named John Williams, who has so far proved elusive.

Another of the 1827 shareholders was Thomas Williams of 50 Lower Sackville Street who contributed £200 of capital to the CDSPCo, and who had a circumstantial link to our Richard Williams through his wife.
Our Richard Williams, widower, married spinster Geraldine O'Moore Creighton in the Registrar's Office, Dublin, on 15th June 1847.  He was an officer to a public company, ie, CDSPCo, living at 17 Eden Quay, the son of a deceased gentleman, John Williams.  Geraldine O'Moore Creighton was the daughter of presbyterian minister, Rev. David Hill Creighton, and was living at 5 Harcourt Terrace.  This was the address of her maternal aunt, Louisa Willis (1795 - 1866) , who had married the printer George Allen Proctor  (1778 -1848) in St. Peter's, Dublin, on 26th May 1825.    Geraldine O'Moore Creighton's mother was Louisa Proctor's sister, Eliza Willis, both Louisa and Eliza being the daughters of the Portarlington schoolmaster, Thomas Willis.

Geraldine's father, Rev. David Hill Creighton, was associated with the Scots Church of Mary Street and with the Presbyterian Church in Bray, just south of Dublin.  Both he, and his daughters, also ran a Ladies' Academy in a variety of locations around Dublin, which, following his death in 1866, his three unmarried daughters continued to run in North Great Georges Street.

'Saunders News-Letter' of 2nd March 1835 noted that Mr. Creighton and his daughters were running a Ladies' Academy at 50 Lower Sackville Street, having lately removed from 14 Upper Gardiner Street.   50 Lower Sackville Street was the business premises of Thomas Williams.

Later, the edition of 6th April 1835 advertised the Ladies' Academy at 50 Lower Sackville Street and added that Mr. Creighton had been requested by some ladies to open a summer school in Kingstown, and that enquiries for this could be made to himself, and references could be requested from Mrs. Roe of Sans Souci and Mrs. Ferrier of Willow Park.  Both the Roes and the Ferriers were closely associated with the CDSPCo.

'Saunders News-Letter' of 29th August 1836 once again ran the advertisement for the Ladies' Academy of 50 Lower Sackville Street conducted by Mr. Creighton and his daughters.  Later, on 11th September 1843, the paper noted that Mr. Creighton had moved his establishment to 9 Westland Row with his daughter.

Saunders of 10th April 1837 noted in an advert that Mr. Creighton and Mr. and Mrs. Newcombe were in attendance at the Ladies' Academy in 1, Foster Place, College Green.

James Ferrier 'of Willoe Park' was a proprietor of the CDSPCo at its inception in the 1820's, and was its chairman in 1840.  He was also the treasurer of The Evangelical Society and was involved in fundraising for the 'Free Church of Scotland', the 'Dublin Observer' of 1st March 1834 noting that donations were needed to set up meetingplaces and that subscriptions had already been received from James Ferrier and George Allen Proctor who was Geraldine O'Moore Creighton's uncle and brother-in-law of Rev. David Hill Creighton.

'Saunders News-Letter' of February 1835 reported that a sermon was to be preached on behalf of the schools connected with the Scots Church on Marys Abbey (with an entrance at 132 Capel Street), this being the church associated with David Hill Creighton - in 1829 Rev. Creighton had been instrumental in taking over St. Mary's Abbey, Meetinghouse Lane off Capel Street, Dublin, for the Evangelical Society;  his services were 'gratuitous', and he hoped to pay the £50 rent through donations.

As noted earlier, Rev. Creighton and his daughters ran a Ladies' Academy at 50 Lower Sackville Street in the 1830s.   50 Lower Sackville Street was the address of the woollen merchant, Thomas Williams, who had contributed £200 in capital to the fledgling City of Dublin Steam Packet Company.  Given that one of the daughters of Rev. David HIll Creighton was Geraldine O' Moore Creighton, and given that she would, in 1847, marry Richard Williams of the CDSPCo,  was our Richard Williams related somehow to the merchant Thomas Williams, or were they all merely connected via the Dublin Steam Packet Company or via the Presbyterian Church?

All that is know of the immediate family of our great-great grandfather, Richard Williams, is that he was the son of a John Williams, a gentleman who had died by 1847 when his son married Geraldine O'Moore Creighton in Dublin.

Thomas Williams of 50 Lower Sackville Street began his working life in Dublin alongside a John Williams, and I wondered if this might be the father of our Richard Williams.  This is pure conjecture since I have found no definitive link to prove this, but I'll lay out what I know of Thomas (1779 - 1858) and John Williams (died 1813) here nonetheless.

From 'The Dublin Evening Packet and Correspondent' of 28th February 1828, an advertisement for Thomas Williams of 50 Lower Sackville Street confirmed that Thomas Williams was 'himself a native of Wales'.      He had been born somewhere in Wales in about 1779, since his Mount Jerome headstone notes that he was 79 when he died at Burnett Avenue, Kingstown, on 14th February 1858.

Saunders Newletter of 20th February 1804 ran an advertisement for John and Thomas Williams, Linen Drapery Warehouse of No. 1 Church Lane, College Green. They held patterns for yeomanry uniforms which could be seen at 21 Little Strand Street; they also engaged in piano tuning and had shop, parlours and houses to let in different parts of Dublin.

Saunders Newsletter of 24th November 1804 announced that John and Thomas Williams were moving from Church Lane to Grafton Street on the corner of Nassau Street.
From 1806, John and Thomas Williams were noted in the street directories at 1, Grafton Street. The National Library in Kildare Street holds a publication of 1805 with an advertisement for them - 'The Welch flannel and linen drapery ware-house, John & Thomas Williams, No.1 Grafton-street, opposite Suffolk-street.'

The London and Country Directory' of 1811 has 'Williams, John and Thomas, linen drapers, flannel and blanket merchants, Grafton St.'

By 1811, Williams & Co. were operating at 1 Grafton Street and 30 Lower Sackville Street.  Our Richard Williams was born at this time, in about 1812, although people weren't altogether accurate with their ages in this era. 
In 1811, Rev. David Hill Creighton was the assistant secretary of the Hibernian Sunday School Society - subscribers included Rev. Thomas Willis of Portarlington, who was Geraldine O'Moore Creighton's uncle, and John Williams of Grafton Street.
An 1811 Report by the Hibernian Sunday School Society again showed up John Williams of Grafton Street as a subscriber, along with Thomas Willis of Portarlington;  D.H. Creighton was named as the assistant secretary.

'The 'Bath Chronicle and Weekly Gazette' of 17th October 1811 noted the marriage of  John Williams of Dublin to Miss E. Taylor of Halkin near Holywell, Flintshire.

The Welsh papers of the day chronicle the family of John and Elizabeth Taylor of Halkin, Holywell, Flintshire.   Their children were baptised locally:
John Taylor on 3rd April 1783 - he died aged 68 and was buried in Halkin on 19th January 1854.
Thomas Taylor, later an innkeeper in Halkin, was baptised on 16th January 1787.
Isaac Taylor, later a land surveyor, was baptised in Halkin on 22ndJune 1789.
Martha Taylor was baptised on th February 1791 and was buried on 17th June 1862.
Elizabeth Taylor, who was most likely the woman who married John Williams in 1811, was baptised in Halkin on 16th September 1792.
Charles Taylor was baptised on 24th October 1795.
George Taylor of Eccleston near Chester was noted as the son of John and Elizabeth Taylor when his mother died aged 64 on 15th July 1824.

Deed 637-485-439770, lodged in the Dublin Registry of Deeds, was a memorial of the marriage settlement of 20th September 1811 between John Williams of Grafton Street and Elizabeth Taylor formerly of Halkin and now of Dublin.  The trustees implicated in the memorial were Alderman John Carleton of Dublin and William Taylor, merchant of Dublin, who was a possible relative of Elizabeth Taylor.  The memorial recited a lease between Allen Fowler and Sarah Williams, dated 16th November 1800 (this might not be the correct year since the writing in the deed book was difficult to decipher), and a later lease, dated 13th December 1804, from Allen Fowler to John Williams for the house at the corner of Grafton Street and Nassau Street for 39 years.   It's unclear who Sarah Williams was, since I haven't come across this individual before, but Alderman John Carleton was a member of the Carleton family of Eustace Street who would intermarry with the Williams family who founded the City of Dublin Steam Packet Company.

12 months after the marriage of Elizabeth Taylor and John Williams, the couple had a daughter, Elizabeth, who was baptised in St. Mark's on 28th October 1812.

Five months later The 'Chester Chronicle' of 26th March 1813 noted the death of  John Williams - 'In Dublin, on the 10th inst., Mr. John Williams of Grafton Street in that city. - He was a native of the Isle of Anglesey, and during a residence of twenty years in Dublin, acquired, by his affable, friendly and truly obliging disposition, the warm esteem and affectionate regard of a numerous circle of acquaintances, by whom he is sincerely and deservedly lamented.'
The above obituary notes that John, and presumably his partner Thomas Williams, (as well as David Williams of Grafton Street), arrived in Dublin in about 1793.  It was about this time that the sons of lawyer, John Jeffery Williams, also arrived in Dublin as merchants.

If John Williams died five months after the birth of his daughter Elizabeth, then the only way he could be the father of our Richard Williams of Eden Quay would be if his wife had been pregnant at the time of his death.  Since the register of St. Mark's, where the Williams were baptising their children at this time, has survived, then I would expect to find the 1813 baptism of Richard Williams if he were indeed the son of the late John Williams and Elizabeth Taylor, but I've come across nothing.

Following the death of her husband in 1813, it seems that Elizabeth Williams, née Taylor, remarried.  Her second husband was the Dublin architect, William Murray. The couple married in St. Andrew's, Dublin, on 1st July 1814. 
I came across a deed (1838-3-133) which was a memorial of an indented deed of assignment, dated 7th February 1838, between William Murray of Lower Gardiner Street, and Elizabeth Murray, otherwise Williams (and previously Taylor) his wife, and Elizabeth Murray, daughter of the said Elizabeth Williams of Lower Gardiner Street.  This later deed of 1838 recited the earlier marriage settlement of Elizabeth Taylor and John Williams and concerned the house on Grafton/Nassau Street, naming Alderman John Carleton and merchant of Dublin, William Taylor, as trustees.   The Elizabeth Murray, who was named as the daughter of Elizabeth Williams of Lower Gardiner Street, was also the daughter of the late John Williams of Grafton Street.

Architect William Murray and Elizabeth Taylor had a large family:

Edward Charles Williamson Murray was born 17th January 1819.
William Johnston Murray was born 30th November 1820.
William George Murray was born on 9th November 1822.
Francis Johnston Murray was born 9th August 1824.
Charles Frederick Murray was born in Eccles Street and was baptised in St. George's on 21st January 1827.
John Henry Murray was born at 36 Eccles Street on 30th June 1828.
Isabella Augusta Murray was born at 36 Eccles Street on 26th August 1830.
Adelaide Anne Murray was born at 36 Eccles Street on 6th April 1835.
Francis Johnston Murray (the first child by this name must have died young) was born at 72 Lower Gardiner Street on 23rd November 1837.

Daughter Adelaide Anne Murray married the architect Thomas Drew of 60 Upper Sackville Street on 21st February 1871.    When Adelaide Anne's mother, the widowed Elizabeth Murray of Lower Gardiner Street, died aged 77 on 19th July 1870 at Martilla Cottage in Bray,  her son-in-law, Thomas Drew of Sackville Street, was present at her death and registered the death.   If our immediate ancestor, Richard Williams, was indeed the son of this Elizabeth Taylor and John Williams, then I would have expected him to have registered his mother's death.

On 8th October 1845, in Howth Church, Elizabeth Georgina Williams of Baldoyle (near Howth), the only daughter of the late John Williams, a merchant, and of Elizabeth Taylor, later Murray, married the Waterford architect, Abraham Denny, then living at Marino Crescent, Clontarf, son of the Waterford merchant, Henry Denny.  This family were the ancestors of the present-day Denny meat company.  The witnesses to the wedding were architect colleagues of Abraham Denny, William Murray (the bride's stepfather), Henry Murray and John Mallet Williamson.  There was also a member of the Williams family, but the signature on the certificate is so illegible that I got nowhere with seems to be something along the lines of M.G. Williams.

Elizabeth Georgina's late father was noted in several of the papers as John Williams, formerly of Penrallt, North Wales, and late of this city, ie, Dublin.   There are several places by the name of Penrallt in North Wales, one on Anglesey island, and a second on the neighbouring mainland close to Penrhyn.  In 1833 the Dublin papers were advertising the sale of an estate named Penrallt situated between Bangor and the Menai Straits.  This Penrallt on the Welsh mainland was the place where the Williams family of the Dublin Steam Packet had their origins.

Elizabeth Georgina Williams, (the daughter of John Williams and Elizabeth Taylor), and Abraham Denny had four children together before Elizabeth Georgina's (unrecorded) death in 1887.  Son, Charles Edward Denny, was born in Lower Gardiner Street in April 1849, Edith Elizabeth Denny was born at 4 Leinster Terrace on 22nd September 1850, a second daughter was born there on 29th November 1851, while Emma Florence Denny was  born on 17th March 1852.

Abraham Denny was closely related to the Denny family of Tralee.  His daughter, Emma Florence, would marry one of her Kerry cousins, Henry Arthur Denny, an office in the Royal Artillery, in Drumcannon Church on 23rd August 1870.  He was the son of William Henry Denny of Tralee and grandson of Sir Edward Denny, a prominent member of the Plymouth Brethren. 
Both the Tralee and Waterford branches of the Denny family used the name 'Maynard'.  When Arthur Denny of Tralee made his will in August 1767 he named his brother as Maynard Denny, while Abraham Denny's brother, according to his father, Henry Denny's 1869 will, was named as Edward Maynard Denny of Westcliffe House, Tramore.   Henry Denny who founded the family's bacon business and who was the father of architect Abraham Denny, also named his other children in his 1869 will - children were, including Abraham Denny, Thomas Anthony Denny of 101 Westbourne Terrace, London, Edward Maynard Denny of Tramore, Rev. William Henry Denny who lived at 35 Redcliffe Gardens, Kensington,  Anna Warr wife of Rev. George Winter Warr of St. Saviour's, Liverpool, Mary Murphy wife of Rev. Robert Murphy L.L.D. of Bangalore, and Ellen Fagan, wife of Major Christopher Sullivan Fagan of Madras.  A niece was named as Rebecca Denny, the daugher of Henry's brother, Joseph Denny, and a grandson was Henry Denny, the son of the late Henry Hall Denny.  An unmarried daughter was Sarah Denny who, along with her brother, Abraham, was the executrix of her father's will.

Betham's Genealogical Extracts (published online via Find My Past) recorded the marriage of David Williams of 1 Grafton Street, to Elizabeth Caton Sherwood of St. Catherine's Parish on 26th August 1809.
The preceding Thomas and John Williams also lived, or worked, at 1 Grafton Street at this time. When David William's wife, Elizabeth, died on 10th January 1868 at her residence, 21 Newgrove Avenue, Sandymount Strand, she was named in the papers as the relict of the late David Williams, formerly of Penrallt, North Wales, and late of this city, ie Dublin. 

Elizabeth Caton Sherwood, who married David Williams in 1809, was the daughter of the shoemaker, Thomas Caton Sherwood, who lived in Cornmarket and who was sworn in as Master of the Corporation of Shoemakers in June 1804.  Married to Sarah Greene in April 1785 in St. Catherine's, this couple were, along with Elizabeth Caton Sherwood, the parents of youngest daughter Sarah who died unmarried in Mary Street on 31st December 1846, and of Arthur Sherwood was was baptised in St. Catherine's in 1801.  Other members of this somewhat elusive family might be the Hannah Sherwood of Cornmarket who was buried in St. Catherine's on 25th March 1806, and the Margaret Sherwood who married John Adams of Armagh in St. Catherine's on 6th September 1822.   A son was Oliver Caton Sherwood, a shoemaker, who was admitted to the Freemen of Dublin in 1810, by birth, being the son of Thomas Caton Sherwood.  The Fictitious Votes report of 1837 showed him living at 11 Charlotte Street, but Oliver Caton Sherwood, for many years a member of the Police force, died on 14th September 1837.   Arthur Caton Sherwood, son of Thomas Caton Sherwood, was himself the father of a Thomas Caton Sherwood who  settled in England.

'The Liverpool Mercury' of 19th June 1861 carried an advertisement for the 'Sea King' whose commander was David Williams, late of the City of Dublin Steam Packet Company.  Later he worked for the Dublin and Kingstown Steam Packet Company - in February 1864 he took command of the 'Kingstown' steamer, and had previously worked for 20 years on the Kingstown, Holyhead and Liverpool stations, and had commanded the 'Merlin' and the 'Llewellyn'.  In July 1866, he was appointed to the 'Anna Liffey' which operated day trips around Dublin Bay from Kingstown.

Captain David Williams must have died at some stage between 1866, when he was appointed commander of the 'Anna Liffey' and 1868 when his wife died in Sandymount.

David Williams and his wife,  Elizabeth Caton Sherwood baptised two sons in St. Mark's - William John Williams was born in Nassau Street (which runs from 1 Grafton Street) and was baptised on 12th September 1813, while son Thomas William Williams was baptised on 27th February 1816. 
The couple also baptised two children in the Non-Conformist Chapel of Great George Street in Liverpool - John Donald Williams had been born in Dublin on 17th October 1817 and was baptised in Liverpool on 30th July 1820. 
A daughter, Elizabeth (Howard?) Williams was born in Harrington Street, Walton, Lancashire, on 15th April 1820 and was likewise baptised in the Great George Street Chapel on 30th July 1820 alongside her older brother John Donald Williams.   At the time of these two Liverpool baptisms, David Williams was working as a linen draper. 

Son John Donald Williams of 1 Tenchfield Terrace, Sandymount, was admitted to the Freemen of Dublin on 16th June 1859 by virtue of being the grandson of Thomas Caton Sherwood who had been admitted in Midsummer 1789.  John Donald Williams died in Sandymount on 3rd December 1866 ('Belfast Telegraph') and his death was registered in South Dublin as John Donaldson Williams.  He was buried in Mount Jerome Cemetery.

A possible daughter was the Rachael Williams who was baptised in St. Nicholas's, Dublin, by her parents, David and Elizabeth Williams, on 8th September 1822.

A definite son of David Williams and Elizabeth Sherwood was the Joseph Pim Williams who was admitted to the Dublin Freemen on 16th June 1859, on the same day as his brother, John Donald, by virtue of being the grandson of Thomas Caton Sherwood.

When David Williams' widow, Elizabeth, née Sherwood, died on 10th January 1868 in Sandymount (she was buried in Mount Jerome), her son, Joseph Pim Williams, was the informant of death. Joseph Pim Williams was most likely named in honour of Joseph Robinson Pim (1787 - 1858), who was the head of the St. George Steam Packet Company.  David Williams was the commander of the Sea King in 1861, one of the St. George steamers.
In December 1869 in Donnybrook Church, Joseph Pim Williams of Newgrove Avenue, Sandymount, fourth son of the late David Williams of Penrallt, North Wales, married Rosetta, the 3rd daughter of Edward Atkinson, M.D., and J.P. of Glen William Castle, Co. Limerick. ('Cork Examiner', 11th Dec.1869.)     On 26th October 1877, the bride's sister, Sarah Rosetta Atkinson, married Brabazon Brunker, eldest son of the late Robert Burrowes Brunker of Simmonscourt House, Donnybrook.

Joseph Pim Williams, a clerk in the Police Courts and also Registrar of Dogs (?), and Rosetta Atkinson had Rosetta Elizabeth Williams at 9 Newgrove Avenue on 14th October 1871, Emma Anne Williams at 21 Newgrove Avenue on 7th March 1873, Edward Atkinson Williams at 7 Newgrove Avenue on 3rd July 1874, and William Henry Williams on 17th February 1877. 

The Electoral Lists compiled for the City of Dublin Elections in July 1865 showed up Joseph P. Williams and John Williams at 1 Tenchfield Terrace, Sandymount;  earlier, in 1847,  William Williams was listed as living in Newgrove Avenue.

Joseph Pim Williams died aged 60 at 57 Morehampton Road, Donnybrook, on 13th January 1890; son Edward Atkinson Williams was present and registered the death . 

The 1891 UK Census captured Emma Anne and Rosetta Elizabeth Williams, the daughters of Joseph Pim Williams and Rosetta Atkinson, living in South Bury, England, where Rosetta, aged 19, was a student school teacher, while her sister, Emma Anne, was an 18-year-old schoolgirl.

Emma Anne Williams, the daughter of Joseph Pim Williams and Rosetta Atkinson, married in St. Kevin's on 1st September 1899, Robert Maxwell Power, electrical engineer and son of Richard Power of Stoke-on-Trent, England.  In 1899, Emma Anne Williams was living at 13 Curzon Street.  The couple had a son, Frederick Desmond  Power in Yardley, Worcester, England, who was baptised there on 30th August 1901, but they returned to Ireland and were living in Cregagh, Co. Wicklow, near Macreddin, when Robert Maxwell Power died of TB aged 48 on 28th May 1913.

Rosetta Elizabeth Williams, daughter of Joseph Pim Williams and Rosetta Atkinson, married George Belford in Paris on 11th May 1897.   George Belford was the son of Belfast-born William Belford who had moved across the water to the Uk, working at one time in Headingley, Yorkshire, where son George was born in 1868, and then in Scotland. George's mother was Elizabeth Milne of Auchtergavan, Scotland.
George Belfort and Rosetta Elizabeth Williams settled in West Ham, England, where George Belford worked as the clerk to a wine merchant.  Ten years later he was the director and secretary of the Australian Wine Importers and they had moved to Prittlewell in Essex. A son, William Atkinson Belfort, had been born in 1907.   He would die on 26th January 1942 at 49 Conway Road, Llanrhos, Conway, in North Wales.

Edward Atkinson Williams, the son of Joseph Pim Williams and Rosetta Atkinson, emigrated to New York aboard the 'Campania', arriving there on 23rd September 1899, having previously been living in Paris, presumably with his sister and her husband George Belford who had married there in 1897. When Edward Atkinson Williams applied for naturalization on 7th February 1909 he was living in 365 W.25th Street.  Later when he re-applied on 29th September 1909 he was living at 1983 Crotona Avenue and was a bookkeeper.  He had married Katherine L. Casey, who had been born in NYC to Irish-born parents. The couple had had a son, also Edward Atkinson Williams, who died in infancy or at birth, on 5th November 1910.
Edward Atkinson Williams was drafted during the First World War and the Draft Registration Cards show him and his wife, Catherine, living in Cochise, Arizona. I could trace him no further after this.

The oldest son of David Williams and Elizabeth Caton Sherwood, William John Williams, had been born in Nassau Street, Dublin, and had been  baptised on 12th September 1813 in Liverpool.  He was noted as being of 1 Tenchfield Terrace, Sandymount, in the 1850's, and also on 22nd October 1857, the day he was admitted to the Freemen of Dublin by virtue of being the grandson of Thomas Caton Sherwood.
In May 1859, William Williams of 1 Tenchfield Terrace, Sandymount,  married Agnes Oldham, the oldest daughter of William Oldham of Bedford House, Rathgar.
Following the 1859 marriage, William and Agnes Williams lived for a time in Rathgar - the papers noted the birth of a daughter in Rathgar by  Mrs. William Williams on 8th February 1860, while, on 13th March 1866, Vivian Williams, the four and a half year old son of William Williams, died. On 10th September 1861 in Bedford House, Rathgar (the home of William Oldham), a son was born to Mrs. William Williams.  This child might be son Lionel Williams, an actor who proved his father's will when William, a retired civil servant, died aged 75 at Ulverton Road in Dalkey on 15th January 1892. The 1911 UK census captured Lionel Williams, single and aged 47, working at the Prince of Wales Theatre under the management of Charles Hawtrey, but I can find nothing further about him after this.

William Williams' father-in-law, William Oldham of Bedford House, was the brother of the Bank of Ireland engineer, John Oldham, who had connections to Charles Wye Williams through both the Bank of Ireland - Charles' father was Thomas Williams, the first Secretary to the bank - and through the steam shipping industry.  John Oldham (1779-1840) of Dublin was a miniature painter and a distinguished engineer-inventor. In 1809 he developed a machine for serial numbering of bank notes, adopted by the Bank of Ireland in 1812. Oldham was appointed engineer and chief engraver to the bank. In 1817, and 1820, he patented designs for paddle steamer propulsion systems. His systems were eventually used in the first ever ocean-going iron steamer Aaron Manby.  In 1832 he designed a mechanical water supply system for the R.D.S. botanic garden. Oldham migrated to London in 1837, where he worked for the Bank of England. He died at his residence in Montagu Street, London, on 14 February 1840.
On 21st May 1846 at Rathgar, Henrietta Agnes Oldham, the daughter of William Oldham and niece of the late John Oldham of the Bank of Ireland, marriedWilliam Mafflyn or Mattlin of Lower Bridge Street. Another child of William Oldham must be the engraver Arthur Oldham of Bedford House who died on 11th  April 1907 at 62 Fontenoy Street in Drumcondra.

Following the death of John Williams in 1813, Thomas Williams sold off his stock at 1 Grafton Street (Saunders 4th May 1813) and set up in business alone at 30 Sackville Street.  The old business had been named as 'Williams & Co'.  At this stage he turned from the linen/flannel industry, and took up deliveries via the mailboats crossing the Irish sea.

By 1822, he was noted as 'Agent to the London and Holyhead Packet Parcel office'.

A typical advertisement for the business appeared in the Dublin Evening Mail of 27th February 1828.  Thomas Williams would forward, twice daily, goods and parcels by the Holyhead Mail and regularly by the Liverpool, London and Bristol steam packets;  parcels would also be delivered to and from the interior of Ireland by the Mail and Day Coaches. Obviously this business would bring him into daily contact with the Dublin Steam Packet Company.

Thomas Williams of 50 Lower Sackville Street, wrote a letter of complaint to the House of Commons in 1823 to highlight the unfair taxation of certain foreign goods imported from Great Britain into Ireland. (House of Commons Papers, Vol.18).

By 1828, Thomas Williams was operating at 50 Lower Sackville Street, where Rev. David Hill Creighton and his daughters would run their academy in the 1830's.  It was in 1828 that Thomas Williams of 50 Lower Sackville Street paid in £200 to the CDSPCo.

Saunders Newletter noted in 1837 that Thomas Williams of 50 Lower Sackville Street operated a real Welch (sic) handspun flannel warehouse, the flannel being manufactured at Welch Pool, Wales.

The Dublin Morning Register of 11th October 1837 noted Thomas Williams as a contributor to the 'Suppression of Street Begging' organisation, and gave two addresses for him - along with 50 Lower Sackville Street, there was also 127 Lower Baggot Street.

By 1839 Thomas Williams was also the agent for the National Provident Institution, and, as well as being a wholesale flannel and woollen merchant, is noted as a Welsh flannel merchant.

By 1850, Thomas Williams was still working at 50 Lower Sackville Street but was living in the southern suburbs at 3 Belvidere Terrace, Sandymount Strand.

 'Thomas Williams & Co., Parcel Agent to His Excellency the Lord Lieutenant, military and general agents per English and Irish railways, daily, and agents to Stanbury & Co, London.'

‘Williams, Thomas & Co., parcel agents to His Excellency Earl de Grey, military and general agents, and flannel and blanket merchants, 50 Sackville Street Lower.’

Thomas Williams of Sackville Street, Dublin merchant, married Mary Bell of St. James's Parish on 22nd December 1812..

Thomas Williams, formerly of Sackville Street, late of Burdett-avenue, Kingstown, Dublin, died 14th February 1858 at Burdett-avenue, and his will was proved by his widow Mary Williams of 16 Burdett-avenue.  Thomas Williams was buried in the family plot in Mount Jerome.
His wife, Mary Williams, née Bell, of Corrig Avenue, Kingstown, died 22nd May 1860 at the home of her son in Killucan (Dublin Medical Press of 30th May 1860) and her will was administered by him.  Mary Williams (1793 - 1860) was buried in Mount Jerome Cemetery.

Children of Thomas and Mary Williams of Sackville Street:

1) John William Williams was baptised in St. Mary's, Dublin, on 16th December 1813 by Thomas and Mary Williams.

Later a doctor, John William Williams can be seen in the Trinity admission records:
   ‘Williams, John William, Pen. (Luxembourg School) Oct. 18 1830, aged  14; son of Thomas, Mercator; born Dublin, BA Vern 1835, MA Vern, MB Aest 1839.’

It’s very interesting to see from the above that John William Williams was educated at the Luxembourg School - this was also known as the Feinaigle Institute, a liberal school which aimed to develop independent thinking in its young pupils, and which was supported by the CDSPCo Williams family  - the sons of Richard Williams of Drumcondra Castle were educated here, and Richard was on the board of directors of the school.

On Griffiths Valuation of 1854, Thomas William’s son,  Dr. John (William) Williams, was leasing a house and land in Killucan;  the Medical Bibliography of 1877 also shows up Dr. Thomas J. De Courcy Williams of Killucan, who was John William William’s son.   Dr. John William Williams of Killucan died on the 31st dOctober 1889, and his will was administered by his children, John Almericus de Courcy Williams of Killucan, Rev. Sterling William S. de Courcy Williams of Rathconnell Rectory, Killucan, and Thomas John de Courcy Williams of Birmingham.

John William Williams married Emily Letitia de Courcy, the daughter of Rev. Michael de Courcey and Emily Smyth, in 1848 in Drumcree, Westmeath.   Her birth on 18th June 1827 was recorded in the Drumcree Church register.  She was sister to Michael William de Courcy born 29th September 1822, Nevison de Coury born 7th October 1835 and Anne Alice de Courcy born 16th April 1826.
The Honorable Emily Laetitia Williams, née de Courcy, wife of John William Williams of Killucan, died 29th February 1912, and her will was administered by her sons, John Almericus de Courcy Williams and Rev. Sterling William Sinclair de Courcy Williams.

The children of John William Williams, MD, and Emily Letitia de Courcy were all born in the parish of Killucan, West Meath, and were christened by Emily Letitia’s father, Rev. Michael De Courcey:
Anne Jane Georgina Sinclair Williams, born October 23rd 1863.  The Belfast Newsletter of 26th October 1865 noted her death, aged 1 year and 11 months, on 21st October 1865 at Killucan, Westmeath.  She was stated to be the eldest child of John William Williams, Fellow Royal College of Surgeons, Ireland.
Son Thomas John De Courcy Williams, born July 19th 1849, was also a surgeon who worked in Birmingham.  He died at Christchurch, Hampshire in 1898.  The Medical Bibliography of 1877 earlier showed up Dr. Thomas J. De Courcy Williams of Killucan.

Emily Anne de Courcy Williams, born September 5th 1850.  She died unmarried in South Dublin in 1940.

John Almericus De Courcy Williams, born July 11th 1855 to John William Williams and Emily Letitia De Courcy.   John Almericus married, at Ryde on the Isle of Wight, in 1892, Frideswide Catherine Emily Smyth, daughter of Robert Ralph Smyth and Sarah Maria Martin of Portlick Castle, Westmeath.  
From Mount Jerome records online:  'J. A. De.C. WILLIAMS M.D. Killucan who died 21st January 1924, aged 68 years Also FRIDESWIDE his wife  who died August 16th 1948.'   At the time of his death in 1924, John A. de Courcy Williams was living at 6 Morehampton Road, Dublin.
John Almericus De Courcy Williams followed his father into the medical profession and in 1911 was practising in Killucan, Co. Westmeath. 
John Almericus De Courcy Williams and Frideswide Smyth had a son, Almericus John Falkener De Courcy Williams in Green Hills, Killucan, on 4th May 1895, and a daughter, Emily Francis Frideswide De Courcy Williams on 20th April 1897.    Son Almericus John De Courcy Williams died in France on 22nd October 1914 and was buried at Bethune, Departement du Pas-de-Calais.

Sterling William Sinclair de Courcy Williams, born October 10th 1858 to Dr. John William Williams and Emily Letitia De Courcy.  A Church of Ireland minister, in 1901 he was living  in Durrow, Tullamore, with his sister, Emily Anne De Courcy Williams.  In 1889, he had been Rector of Rathconnell Rectory, Killucan. 
On 8th June 1913 in St. John's, Buttevant, Co. Cork, Sterling William Sinclair De Courcy Williams married Mary Estelle Smith of Buttevant, the daughter of James Smith, a secretary with the Perrier Distillery.  This wedidng was witnessed by K.A.H. Sikes and John Arthur Jagoe.

Mary Frances Elizabeth de Courcey Williams - this daughter had been born in Westmeath in 1853.

2)  The daughter of Thomas and Mary Williams, of 50 Lower Sackville Street, was Anne Jane Williams who was baptised in St. Mary's on 13th March 1815 and who died in 1843. She married, on 7th July 1835, Thomas Berry, the son of Sterling Berry and Dorothy Winslow of Eglish Castle, King's County.
Anne Jane Berry died at Rathgar in 1843, and her husband went on to marry Sarah Alicia Seymour.

The children of Thomas Berry and Anne Jane Williams were:

  • Sterling Thomas Berry, 1837 - 1865, who was in the Mercantile Marine service and who died young in Calcutta.
  •  Mary Frances Berry (1839 - 1907) who married Rev. Thomas Skipton, son of Pitt Skipton of Derry, in 1888. The wedding in Dublin was witnessed by Mary Frances Berry's first cousin,  Mary Frances Eliza de Courcy Williams, the daughter of John William Williams MD and Emily Laetitia de Courcy,  and by Mary Frances' brother, William Winslow Berry.
  •  John Berry, born 1841.
  •  William Winslow Berry, born 1842.  He witnessed his sister's wedding in 1888.  He married Zaldah Suzette Fannan, and the couple emigrated to Australia.

3) Thomas and Mary Williams baptised their second daughter, Mary Eliza Williams, in St. Mary's on 24th November 1816.  'The Oxford Chronicle' of 12th March 1859 noted the marriage in Monkstown Church, Co. Dublin, on 5th March 1859, of Mary Eliza, second daughter of the late Thomas Williams of Dublin and of Connaught Place, Kingstown, to William Vallancy/Vallancey Drury MD of 3 The Crescent, Camden Villas, London.  Another marriage notice in a second paper of the day named Mary Eliza as the second surviving daughter of the late Thomas Williams.   This makes sense - her sister, Anne Jane Berry, had died in 1843, while her sister, Esther Eleanor de Courcy, wouldn't die until 1864.
William Vallancey Drury MD, later an early homeopathy exponent, and son of an army captain, Charles Chastage John Drury, had married Mary Eliza Williams as his second wife - earlier he had married to Maria Isabella Toomy by whom he had a daughter, Susanna Henrietta Drury, at 9 Lower Merrion Street on 6th April 1846.

4)  Esther Eleanor Williams was baptised in St. Mary's by Thomas and Mary Williams on 5th April 1818 and died in 1864.
On 26th May 1852, Thomas Williams' daughter, Esther Eleanor Williams, married  Michael William de Courcy/Courcey, the son of the Rev. Michael de Courcy of Kilcumney, Westmeath, in St. Mary’s, Dublin. The witnesses were Esther Eleanor’s father, Thomas Williams,  and her brother, John William Williams.  (Limerick and Clare Examiner of 29th May 1853, and Irish Genealogy website.)   Rev. Michael de Courcy of Kilcumney, Westmeath, performed the ceremony.

From the Drumcree Church register, viewable on microfilm at the National Archives in Bishop Street: 'Michael William, born to Michael and Emily de Coursy (sic), on September 29th 1822.'
Michael William de Courcy, born in 1822 to Michael de Courcy and Emily Smyth, succeeded his cousin, John de Courcy as the 32nd Baron Kingsale in 1890.  Michael William De Courcy died in Stoketon, Saltash, Cornwall, in November 1895, and was himself succeeded in the baronetcy by his son Michael Constantine de Courcy who had been born on 8th May 1855. The Kingsale barons held the honour of being the only peers permitted to wear their hats in the presence of royalty.

(Note: Rev. Michael de Courcy of Drumcree married twice, first to Emily Smyth who died on 21st January 1830 at Gleniden, then in Edinburgh on 7th October 1833 to Mary Anne, second daughter of the late Robert Balgrie Esq., of Midgarty, Sutherlandshire. Mary Anne would die on 17th October 1847 in Kilcumney, Westmeath.  Rev. Michael de Courcy died aged 72 in Kilcumney Glebe on 15th May 1860.  The eldest daughter of Rev. Michael de Courcy of Drumcree was Frances Anne de Courcy of The Grange, Marle Hill, Cheltenham, who died aged 90 on 4th December 1911 - her executor was her nephew, the Rt. Hon. Michael Constantine, Baron Kingsale of The Grange. )

The children of Esther Eleanor Williams and William de Courcy were baptised in the parish of Drumcree/Kilcumney, Co. Westmeath.  Two of the births took place at 50 Lower Sackville Street - Saunders Newsletter of 7th March 1853 noted that the lady of Michael William de Courcy had had a stillborn son at 50 Lower Sackville Street, while the Dublin Evening Mail of 3rd March 1854 noted that she had had a daughter there.  A son was also born on 4th November 1857 in Kingstown, Co. Dublin - this was wrongly printed by the papers of the day, since it was daughter Esther Emily Anne Jane de Courcy who was born here.

I  went through the Kilcumney/Killucan Parish Register in the Archives office on Bishop Street.
Constantine de Courcey was born on May 8th 1855 to William de Courcy Esq. and Esther Eleanor of Kilcumney.   This was Michael Constantine de Courcy, later the 33rd Baron Kingsale.

William Nevinson de Courcy was born on August 3rd 1855. (Which doesn't tally with the preceding baby born three months earlier...)

John Sinclair Emile de Courcy was born on November 4th 1857, but the register later records his death -  he was buried on March 26th 1858

Esther Emily Anne Jane de Courcy was born on November 4th 1857.

The online archives of Mount Jerome cemetery confirm that Esther Eleanor, wife of M.W. De Courcy and youngest daughter of Thomas Williams, died aged 43 on 27th December 1864.  Following her death, her husband, Michael William De Courcy, married again, this time in 1874 to Jessie Maud Polwhele, daughter of Rev. E. Polwhele, the rector of Pillaton, Cornwall.

5) The St. Mary's register recorded the baptism on 1st September 1822 by Thomas and Mary Williams of a son,  James Charles Williams, who had been born the previous month on 3rd August 1822.  I can find nothing further about this individual.

Griffith Williams of Crampton Court, Dame Street:
Griffith Williams of Crampton Court is interesting and might be a relation of the Williams discussed in this post. He was a woollen merchant who operated at 2 Darby Square and who was admitted by Grace Especial to the Dublin Freemen in Easter 1905; by 1815 he was working with a nephew at 9 Crampton Court; by 1832 he was ‘Griffith Williams (& Sons), woollen-merchant & Manchester warehouse. Crampton Court.’ (Treble Almanack, 1832.)
His son, William Williams of Chancery Lane, was admitted to the Freemen of Dublin on 10th March 1847, by virtue of being the son of Griffith Williams, while two grandsons would later also be admitted. Grandson Henry Williams of 4 Whitehall Terrace, South Circular Road, was admitted on 30th December 1879, while earlier, grandson John Williams Jnr., a divinity student of Penrallt,  Booterstown Avenue, was admitted on 23rd June 1865.
The 'Evening Freeman' of 11th May 1869 noted that James Williams, the 3rd son of John Williams of Pen Rallt, Booterstown, had qualified as a surgeon. On 23rd February 1870, this same son, James Williams, died aged 23 of yellow fever in Rio de Janeiro.
John Williams of Booterstown avenue died aged 56 on 19th August 1876;  his will was proved by a son, William David Williams.
Henry Williams, the fourth surviving son of the late John Williams, M.A., of Penrallt, Booterstown, died aged 30 at 15 Albert Road, Sandycove, on 26th February 1886.

Some other John Williams of Dublin:
Our great-great grandfather, Richard Williams, who married Geraldine O'Moore Creighton, at 17 Eden Quay in 1847, was the son of a deceased John Williams.  I have found no definite link between our Richard and any other Williams family, other than circumstantial links to the Williams family of the Dublin Steam Packet Company, and to the business premises of the Welsh merchant, Thomas Williams of 50 Lower Sackville Street who is discussed in this post.

During my search for other John Williams of Dublin, who had died by 1847 when our great-great grandparents married, I came across two other interesting contenders, but have similarly failed to find any plausible link between them and Richard Williams of 17 Eden Quay.  I note my findings here nonetheless....

Another deceased John Williams was the late John Williams of Dublin whose eldest daughter, Anne Williams, married the Liverpool merchant Thomas Simmons in St. Peter's, Dublin, on 13th May 1841;   the witnesses were Thomas and William Williams.  Thomas Simmons was the son of the Liverpool shipbroker, Gwin Simmons and Mary Lawton or Lawson.   Thomas and Annie Simmons were living at Wavertree, Liverpool, when their daughter, Annie Simmons, was baptised in Holy Trinity Church on 4th October 1842.
Following his father's death in July 1837, Thomas Simmons continued in his father's shipbroking business, operating under the name of Gwin and William Simmons, but he himself died on 13th May 1866 at The Elms, Prince's Park, Liverpool.
On 30th November 1866 at Byculla Church, Bombay, John William Orr married Annie, eldest daughter of Thomas Simmons of Liverpool.
On 12th October 1874 in the Cathedral at Bombay, Charles F. Farran of Middle Temple, barrister-at-law, thhird son of George Farran of Belcamp Park, Co. Dublin, married Ethel Kate, second daughter of the late Thomas Simmons of Liverpool.

A few strays from the papers....
In 1844 at Mumtoor, Bombay, Henry Neville Esq, of the Madras Civil Service, married Sarah Anne, daughter of John Williams of Dublin.
In 1850 at Summerhill, Co. Meath, in the 16th year of her age, the death occurred of Maria, daughter of John Williams of Dublin.

The Williams of Kinsale, Bantry and Macroom

Browsing through the wills lodged in the Canterbury Court, which are available on both Ancestry and the UK National Archives site, I stumbled across the 1824 will of a John Williams of Kinsale, Co. Cork, and researched this individual and his family merely because my maternal great-great grandfather, Richard Williams of Eden Quay, Dublin, was known to be the son of a deceased John Williams.  I believe my Richard to be related to the Williams family who established the City of Dublin Steam Packet Company in the 1820s, since he worked for the company and I've discovered no other family for him, but I researched the Cork family of John Williams of Kinsale in order to rule them out following the discovery of the 1824 will.
I also consulted the registers of the Kinsale Parish Church and the Kilbrogan Parish Church in the National Archives in Dublin which established the fact that my Dublin ancestor, Richard Williams of Eden Quay and Dundrum, was not the son of this Kinsale John Williams, nor did I find any plausible link between the two families.  However, since the registers of both Kinsale and Kilbrogan, Bandon,  aren't available online, I thought I'd do a post detailing what I unravelled about this Cork Williams family, in case other researchers out there might find the births/death/marriages useful.

This Cork-based Williams family settled in Bandon, Kinsale and Macroom, Co. Cork, and inter-relate intensively.

The will of John Williams (born circa 1775 - 7th December 1824), pawnbroker of Kinsale, was made 7th December 1824, the day of his death, and proved in London on 30th August 1827 by Richard Williams and Thomas Fuller, pawnbrokers of Bandon.  In the will, John named his brother as Richard Williams (1779 - 1849) of Bandon, and brother-in-law as Thomas Fuller.  His widow was Mary Williams, née Fuller, who carried on in business after his death in Kinsale and who had 8 minor children at the time of her husband's death.  (The Williams intermarried countless times with the Fuller family of Bandon.)
John Williams was buried in Christchurch, Bandon, as was his daughter, 11-year-old Anne Williams who died on 19th October 1830.  (This I discovered on the excellent 'Historic Graves' website.)

Pigots Directory of 1824 noted John Williams, pawnbroker of Kinsale. His wife Mary Williams was noted as a widowed pawnbroker of Kinsale in 1825 - her securities were Richard Williams and Thomas Fuller and Joseph Bennett, all pawnbrokers of Bandon.   Also named in 1825 was George Williams, pawnbroker of Kinsale, whose securities were Richard Williams, Thomas Fuller and John Perrot, Kinsale pawnbrokers.   (This George Williams, if he were the son of John Williams and Mary Fuller, would only be 15 in 1825, and wasn't really old enough to operate as a pawnbroker. Perhaps he was a son of Richard WIlliams of Bandon?)

Six of the eight children of John Williams and Mary Fuller, were baptised in Kinsale Parish Church, viewable in the National Archives, Bishop Street, Dublin:

27th January 1819 - Elliza Williams, daughter of John and Mary Williams.

Group baptism of the children of John and Mary Williams on 11th July 1819:
1) George Williams, aged nine years and nine months. Born circa 1810.
2) Sarah Williams, aged eight years and 3 months. Born  circa 1811.
3) Ann Williams, aged 6 years and 4 months. Born circa 1813.  She died on 10th October 1830 and was buried in Christchurch cemetery, Bandon.
4) Joseph Williams aged four years and four months. Born circa 1815.
5) Dora Williams, aged 7 years and 7 months. Born circa 1812.
6) Eliza Williams, aged six months. Born 1819.  She had already been baptised at the beginning of 1819.

John Williams and Mary Fuller had two more daughters following the 1819 baptisms of the first six, Mary and Martha, whose baptisms I didn't come across in the register.

Mary Williams (1821 - 28th March 1868), the second youngest daughter of the late John Williams Esq., of Kinsale, married Joseph Fuller (5th January 1817 - 25th July 1867) of Castletreasure, Ballineen, Bandon, on 25th August 1846.  Joseph Fuller is believed to be the son of William Fuller and Jane Clarke of Ballineen, Bandon. The couple settled in Ballineen.
A son of Mary Williams and Joseph Fuller was William Fuller who was received into the church in 1850 with sponsors named as George Bennett, John Williams and Jane Wiseman.    A son, Joseph Fuller of Ballineen, died of measles on 5th October 1862;  on 16th February 1859, a second son, George Fuller, also died.   A daughter of Mary Williams and Joseph Fuller was Mary Jane Fuller who was baptised in Ballymoney Parish, Bandon, on 2nd December 1850 - her sponsors were named as Thomas, Martha and Dora Fuller, Martha being Martha Williams, also the daughter of pawnbroker John of Kinsale who had married Thomas Fuller and was the baby's aunt.  A Dora Fuller was also named as a sponsor.   A daughter of Joseph Fuller and Mary Williams was Martha Fuller, born 1857, who married the Louth-born bank manager, James Siggins Kennedy, and who was living in Bantry, Co. Cork in 1901.
Joseph Fuller, husband of Mary Williams, died at Castletreasure, Bandon, on 25th July 1867, with probate granted to gentlemen George Bennett of Hillhouse, Bandon, and George Fuller.

In Cork, Martha Williams , youngest daughter of the late John Williams of Kinsale, married, on 14th August 1849, Thomas Fuller,  a solicitor of Bandon -given the extensive intermarrying between the Williams and Fuller families,  the bride and groom were possibly cousins.  Thomas Fuller, attorney of Bandon, died in 1890 in Myrtle Hill Terrace, Cork City, with probate to widow Martha and to the unmarried Elizabeth Fuller.   Martha, still in Cork in 1901, had been born in 1825 in Kinsale, just before her father's death;  her daughter, Elizabeth Fuller, had been born in Bandon in about 1863.  A daughter of Thomas and Martha Fuller was born in 1856 in Bandon. A son was born in 1858. In Bandon on 31st July 1860, Thomas Fuller and Martha Williams had a son;  a second son was born in Bandon on 18th April 1863.
Mary Williams, the widow of Kinsale pawnbroker John Williams, died in September 1866 at the residence of her son-in-law, solicitor Thomas Fuller of Bandon.

A George Williams, who was possibly the son of Kinsale pawnbroker John Williams and Mary Fuller and who had been baptised in Kinsale Parish Church in 1819, married Jane, who died on 2nd October 1886 in Kinsale, having spent time living in Cork City, and her will was proven by her daughter Annie Williams, the wife of Macroom hotel proprietor Samuel Erberry Williams.

The children of pawnbroker George and Jane Williams were baptised in Kinsale Parish Church....

11th November 1839 - John Henry Williams, son of George and Jane Williams - Scilly, Kinsale   An earlier John Henry Williams had been born in 1820 to a John Williams, and might be an uncle of this child.
18th June 1843 - Jane Williams, daughter of George and Jane Williams.
3rd August 1844 - Mary WIlliams, daughter of George and Jane Williams.
10th January 1849 - Anna Eliza Williams, daughter of George and Jane Williams - Anne Eliza Williams  married Samuel Erbery or Carberry Williams of Macroom, son of Richard Williams,  in Kinsale in 1867.

Although I didn't find his baptism in the register, William Henry Williams, who was a Kinsale pawnbroker, was also the son of George Williams - he married Catherine/Kate Dawson, daughter of George Dawson, boatman of Scilly, Kinsale on 23rd October 1866.

Two of the children of George Williams of Kinsale, ie, Joseph and William Henry, married two of the children of George Dawson of Kinsale, ie, Ellen and Catherine Dawson.....

Joseph Williams, also the son of George Williams, married Ellen Dawson, daughter of George Dawson, in Rincurran, ie, Kinsale, on 21st March 1863.   His wife, Ellen, was a widow by 1877. George Dawson, gentleman, died at Scilly, Kinsale, on 11th February 1873, with probate to George Dawson.    The younger George Dawson died at Scilly, Kinsale, on 25th May 1877, and his will was proved by Mary Dawson, spinster, and the widowed Ellen Williams, née Dawson, who had been married to Joseph Williams, the son of George Williams of Kinsale.
When Joseph Williams of Scilly, Kinsale, died on 2nd November 1884, probate was granted to Mary, wife of merchant William Henry Williams (born circa 1844 in Kinsale) of Kinsale.

William Henry Williams of Kinsale, son of George and Jane Williams, had married Catherine/Kate Dawson, daughter of George Dawson of Kinsale,  but, by the time of the 1901 census, he was married to a second wife, Mary, and was operating in Scilly, Kinsale as a timber merchant.  The 1901 census shows up another son, a younger William Henry Williams who had been born in Kinsale in 1886.

The children of William Henry Williams and first wife, Catherine/Kate Dawson, were born in Kinsale....
Kathleen Williams was born 27th February 1870 in Kinsale to William Henry Williams and to Kate Dawson and was baptised in Kinsale Parish Church on  13th March 1870.
Dawson Williams was born 1865-ish in Kinsale.
Henry Dawson Williams of Kinsale was born on 15th March 1873. A fish agent of Kinsale, he married Annie of Tipperary in Roscrea in 1898, and had a daughter, Ruth Dawson Williams, in 1906.
Eleanor Marian/Mary was born on 21st July 1871 and bapatised in Kinsale on 23rd July and was living in Kinsale with her father and his second wife in 1901.
Georgina Mary was born in Kinsale in 1876 and was also at home in Kinsale in 1901.
William Henry Williams who had been born in Kinsale in 1886.

John Henry Williams:
John Henry Williams - was he an extra son of John Williams and Mary Fuller of Kinsale? His marriage details name him as the son of a John Williams, and he had been born in about 1820.  (Note: there was also a John Williams in Bandon at this time, so John Henry Williams may well be a son of this second John Williams. Alternatively, he may not be related at all...)

John Henry Williams (1818 - 28th May 1879) was a maltster/merchant of Kinsale - on 11th June 1850, John Henry Williams, son of John Williams, married 20-yr-old Anne Eliza Fryer (1830 - 12th February 1876), the daughter of Kinsale spirit merchant Charles George Fryer.  (Charles George Fryer, merchant, died in Kinsale on 13th July 1872, with probate to Henry Charles Fryer of Kinsale and William Francis Fryer MD of Bagenalstown, Carlow. Henry Charles Fryer died in Kinsale in 1892 and his will was proved by Charles George Fryer of Norfolk and by the unmarried Catherine Fryer of Rathmines, Dublin.)
John Henry Williams, merchant, died in Kinsale on 28th May 1879, with probate to his son, Robert Alfred Williams, who follows.

In 1901 in Kinsale was the brewers' agent, the Kinsale-born Church of Ireland Robert Alfred Williams (1856 - 1940) with a wife, Sophia Annie Williams of London.  The later census had a niece with them, Stella Muriel Cardinaux Williams who had been born in Dublin in 1899.  In 1901, Stella Muriel was at home in Grosvenor Square, Rathmines, with her widowed Swiss-born mother, Mathilde, and a Cork-born aunt, the unmarried Mary Williams who had been born in 1862.   NB: Stella Muriel Cardinaux Williams had been born on 24th October 1898 at 87 Grosvenor Square to Alexander Henry Williams, bank official, and to Mathilde Louise Cardinaux.    Alexander Henry Williams, bank official, died in Dublin on 27th November 1898.
Kinsale Baptisms:
23rd March 1851 (born 14th March 1851) - John Charles Williams, son of John Henry and Ann Eliza Williams.  In 1881 in Leatherhead, Surrey, was Kinsale-born John Charles Williams, (born 1851), office clerk, married to Eva of Kennington, London, and two children, Eva and Charles.   In 1911, John Charles Williams, civil servant, was boarding in Islington, a widowed.  John Charles Williams of 53 St.John's Park, Islington,  died 21st April 1913, with probate to his daughter Eva, the wife of Harry William Hook.
3rd July 1852 (born 8th June 1852) - Alexander Henry Williams, son of John Henry and Ann Eliza Williams.  He married Swiss-born to Mathilde Louise Cardinaux, and had Stella Muriel Cardinaux Williams on 24th October 1898 at 87 Grosvenor Square, Dublin,
11th December 1856 - Henry Hardy Williams, son of John Henry and Ann Eliza Williams.
16th July 1862 - Eliza Alice Williams, daughter of John Henry and Anna Eliza Williams.

John Henry Williams died on 28th May 1879, aged 61, and was buried in St. Multose, Kinsale, along with his wife Anna Eliza Williams, who died aged 46 on 12th February 1876, and his son Robert Alfred Williams who died, aged 85, on 15th January 1940.  Robert Alfred married a Sophia Anna who died aged 24 on 2nd October 1895.
Joseph Williams of Macroom, second son of the late pawnbroker, John Williams of Kinsale, married in Ahinagh near Macroom on 7th March 1850 Frances Fuller, the daughter of George Fuller of Macroom,  and was living in Kinsale when his children were baptised in the Kinsale Parish Church.
Kinsale Baptisms:
13th October 1857 (born 11th October 1857) - Robert Williams, son of Joseph Williams and Frances Fuller.
16th March 1860 - Frances Mary, daughter of Joseph Williams and Frances Fuller. She died, aged 18, in 1878 and was buried in St. Multose Cemetery, Kinsale.
24th October 1861 - Ralph Fuller Williams, son of Joseph Williams and Frances Fuller.   On Griffiths Valuation a Ralph Fuller was noted at North Main Street, Bandon.   A Ralph Fuller was buried, aged 40, in Bandon on 5th January 1851.  He had married Elizabeth Kingston of Bandon and had had Ann Fuller (1819 - 1869) who died in Ohio, and also Thomas Fuller (1811 - 1856) who died in Boston. Perhaps Frances Fuller, who married Joseph Williams in 1850, was also a daughter?

On 25th December 1856, Catherine Williams, daughter of Joseph Williams, was buried in Kinsale.
Frances, wife of Joseph Fuller, died on 20th April 1875 and was buried in St. Multose, Kinsale.
John Richard Williams (1815 - 1871) was a close relation of the Kinsale/Bandon Williams;  he was possibly the son of Richard Williams, linen merchant of North Main Street, Bandon, since he witnessed the wedding of Richard's daughter, Susanna Williams, or, alternatively, he was the son of John Williams of North Main Street, Bandon, since he also witnessed the wedding of John's daughter, Elizabeth Williams.
John R. Williams, along with George and Joseph Williams, were three of the Kinsale inhabitants who, in 1845, signed a petition calling for the development of the Cork, Bandon and Kinsale Junction railway.
Slater's 1846 Directory noted him as John R. Williams, grocer, 7 Main Street, along with George Williams, pawnbroker and livery stable keeper of 70 Main Street, and Mary Williams, pawnbroker of 16 Guard Well.   The same year a George and J. Williams contributed money to erect a memorial statue to the late Catholic priest Rev. Justin Foley m'Namara, so I presume these last two were Catholic Williams, rather than the Williams whose baptisms I noted in the Protestant Parish register.
John R. Williams  was noted in Kinsale in 1852 on Griffiths Valuation, and his children were baptised there;  his wife was named as Margaret:

Kinsale Parish Baptisms:

27th June 1841 - Richard Williams, son of John Richard Williams and his wife.
11th August 1841 - Edward, son of John Richard and Margaret Williams. (An Edward Williams was buried in Kinsale Parish on 25th December 1856.)
24th April 1844 - John Williams, son of John Richard Williams and Mary/Marg.
July 1848 - Diana Williams, daughter of John Richard and Margaret Williams.
31st August 1851 - Mary-Ann Williams, 3rd daughter of John Richard and Margaret Williams.
6th November 1858 - George William Williams, son of John Richard and Margaret Williams, he was later known by the name of William George Williams.

On 1st July 1851, when Thomas Kingston of North Main Street, Kilbrogan, Bandon, married Elizabeth Williams, the daughter of John Williams,  Main Street shopkeeper,  the witness here was  John R. Williams.

John Richard Williams was  later an auctioneer in Grand Parade, Cork, and died there in November 1871, with probate to son William George Williams of Summerhill, Cork, a commercial traveller who died in November 1873 leaving widow Louisa Williams.  The wills of both John Richard Williams and his son, William George Williams, were proved by jeweller/watchmaker of Cork city, Peter Williams. Peter Williams (1835 - 1875), unmarried jeweller, died on 12th December 1875, with probate to his brother, Samuel Carberry/Erbery Williams, a grocer of Macroom who was later a hotelier of Macroom.

Samuel Erbery/Carberry Williams (1836 - 1897) was married to Annie Eliza Williams, the daughter of George Williams, pawnbroker of Kinsale. They had married in Kinsale on 20th November 1867. Samuel Erbery Williams and Peter Williams were both the children of Richard Williams, linen merchant of Bandon, as was the Susannah Jane Williams who follows...Samuel's middle name of Erbery or Erberry is sometimes spelled as Carberry, and may refer to Abraham Carbury who was a pawnbroker of Main Street, Bandon in 1824.

John Richard Williams was the witness at the wedding of  Susanna Jane Williams when she married James Boyes Henderson of  Tralee, civil engineer, son of James Henderson, manufactuer, on 2nd September 1858 in Kilbrogan Church, Bandon.  The second witness was  Bernard Alcock.   Susannah Williams was noted as the 3rd daughter of Richard Williams, linen manufacturer of North Main Street, Bandon, although another  reference to the wedding names her as the daughter of Richard Williams of Macroom.
James Boyes Henderson died 25th April 1887 in Tralee, leaving his widow Susanna Jane Henderson.  They had six daughters (1901 census) - Diana, Emilie, and Helena C.I., Elizabeth, Carrie F. and Ena.  Daughter Helena Caroline Townshend Henderson was born in Tralee on 5th August 1864;  Emily Frances Walscourt Henderson was born on 18th March 1868;  son Richard William George Henry Henderson was born on 7th November 1869, and married Mary McDermott, the daughter of John McDermott and Mary Quinn, on 13th June 1897 in Manhattan, New York.  Diana Henderson married Maurice J.

Another daughter was the unmarried Margaret Ann Turpin of Bandon who died there on 27th October 1894.  In the 1870s, George Turpin operated as a watch and clockmaker in Bandon.)
The Williams and the Fullers were among the original Protestant English settlers of the town of Bandon, ie: Thomas Williams and Edward Fuller. Both families intermarried extensively.

An early Richard Williams and Thomas Fuller were early Treasurers of Cork.

A Thomas Williams married Elizabeth Allshire on 20th October 1753 in Bandon, Cork.

Richard Williams of Bandon:
Richard Williams (1779 - 1829), brother of John Williams (died 1824) of Kinsale, married on 15th January 1799, Mary or Frances Evatt, the daughter of George Evatt of Kilmore and Phoebe Browne of Inchigeela.   (A son of George Evatt and Phoebe Browne was John Hamilton Evatt who married Mary Baxter in London. )

Richard Williams of North Main Street, Bandon, died in 1849 and was buried, aged 70, in Bandon on 4th May 1849.

Linking to Richard Williams and Mary Evatt of Bandon was John Bennett Evett Williams (1830 - 1859) who died in Calcutta on 15th May 1859, Capt 99th Reg, and who was noted as the son of the late John Williams, Bandon, and he left a widow, Hester Williams of 23 Westbourne Square, Middlesex.   In 1851, a John B. Williams of Bandon, an ensign in the army, was lodging in Chatham, Kent.
A daughter of Richard Williams and Frances Evatt was Susan Williams who married Mr. Moore of Bandon - their daughter was Myra Fuller, still living in 1913.

Samuel Erbery Williams and Peter Williams were both the children of Richard Williams, linen merchant of Bandon, as was  Susannah Jane Henderson who was the third daughter of Richard Williams of both Macroom and Bandon...Samuel's middle name of Erbery or Erberry is sometimes spelled as Carberry, and may refer to Abraham Carbery/Carbury who was a pawnbroker of Bandon in 1824.  Another close relative of Richard Williams of Bandon might be John Richard Williams of Kinsale who was closely related to Samuel Erbery Williams and Peter Williams.   Was Richard Williams, linen merchant of North Main Street, Bandon, the same Richard Williams who operated earlier as pawnbroker in the town, or were they father and son?

A widowed Mary Williams died in Bandon on 26th September 1866 and her will was administered by Willliam Kingston, Bandon pawnbroker.

A John Francis Bennett Williams of Cork, aged 6 weeks, and was buried in Bandon on 24th February 1859.

Street Directories, Bandon:
In Pigot's 1824 Directory of Bandon, Richard Williams was a pawnbroker of North Main Street - this was the brother of John Williams, pawnbroker of Kinsale.  A John Williams was a grocer of North Main Street;  Paul Williams was a builder of North Main Street and a 2nd Paul Williams ran The Devonshire Arms also on North Main Street.
In 1845, two of the Bandon Williams signed a petition in favour of the development of the Bandon to Bantry railway - John B. Williams and Richard W. Williams.
In 1847, the directories note Richard Williams, Misses Ann and Rebecca Williams of North Main Street.  John Williams was a salt manufacturer of North Main Street;  there was also a Robert Williams, nail maker, of Shannon Street.
In Bandon in 1856 the Williams listed were Thomas,  Ann and Rebecca of North Main Street.  Diana Williams was a bookseller and milliner/dressmaker of North Main Street (and the name Diana was reused by later generations of this family);   there were no Williams pawnbrokers in the town, but William Kingston was still operating as one.

The death occurred iin July 1859 of Bennett Brett Williams, Captain in the 99th Regiment of Foot, son of the late John Williams of Bandon.

The Thomas Williams of North Main Street, noted in 1856, must be the following...
Thomas Beamish Williams of Bandon and Anne Keays, daughter of James Keays of Springview, married in Glanmire, Cork. in 1844.
Earlier in 1820, Thomas Beamish Williams of Bandon married Mary Field, the second daughter of William Field of Cork.  Were there two Thomas Beamish Williams, or just the one?

Henry Constantine Gilholy, son of Henry Gilholy of Cashel, married Diana Sarah Turpin in 1859 in Ballymodan, Bandon -  Sarah Diana Turpin was the second daughter of George Turpin of Bandon, and was noted as the granddaughter of Richard Williams of Macroom.  A daughter of Richard Williams of Macroom had therefore married George Turpin of Bandon.

The following children were born to a Richard and Mary Williams of Macroom:
Diana Williams, born 3rd September 1815 to Richard and Mary Williams of Macroom - a Diana Williams worked in Bandon in 1856.
Thomas Williams, born 17th May 1818 to Richard and Mary Williams of Macroom. Was this Thomas Beamish Williams of North Main Street, Bandon, noted there in the 1840s?

Richard Williams, born 21st April 1822 to Richard and Mary Williams of Macroom.
Peter Williams born 29th August 1824 to Richard and Mary Williams of Macroom.
Luranna (probably an error in transcription, more likely Susanna) Williams, born 15th May 1825 to Richard and Mary Williams of Macroom.  If this is Susanna Williams, then she married James Boyes Henderson in Bandon in 1858.  There are two separate marriage records for Susanna Williams and James Boyes Henderson, one giving Susannah's father's residence as Macroom, and the other as Bandon.
William Williams, born 3rd May 1831 to Richard and Mary Williams of Macroom.
Another Peter Williams born 7th August 1833 to Richard and Mary (Ann) Williams of Macroom - this could be the Peter Williams, watchmaker of Cork who was born circa 1835 and who died in 1875.

Street Directories, Macroom:
Pigot's 1824 Directory noted John Williams of the Kings Arms Hotel, and a shoemaker Peter Williams.  The 1827 Tithe Applotment Books note these two men both living in the townland of Sleaveen West, Macroom.  In 1846, Peter Williams was working as the postmaster in The Square.  Another Peter was noted under 'Nobility Clergy Gentry' with an address in The Grove.  There was also John Williams of The Queens Arms, The Square, and another John Williams who worked as a shoemaker/saddler in The Square.  Finally, also in 1846, was the publican Mary Williams of The Square.  
Later members of the Williams family entered the hotel trade in Macroom, namely Samuel Erbery Williams and his son, Richard Christopher Williams.  Samuel Erbery Williams was the son of Bandon linen merchant Richard Williams, who may well have been associated with Macroom as well.
