Michael Joseph BARRETT [Parents] was born about 1860 in Cork city. He died on 14 Jul 1945 in 9 Panorama Terrace, Sunday's Well, Cork. He was buried in St. Joseph's Cemetery, Cork. Michael married Maria JOHNSTON on 19 Jun 1883 in St. Finbarr's Church, Cork.

Michael was a carpenter (like his father) and builder. At the time of the 1901 census he and his family were living at 26 Fuller's Lane in Cork and by the time of the 1911 census they were at City View Terrace, also in Cork. At the time of his death Michael was living at 9 Panorama Terrace, Sunday's Well, Cork. According to his death certificate Michael died of carcinoma of the liver and [what looks like on the document] cachaemia (an old term for blood poisoning) and cardiac failure.

Michael was involved in a court case in October 1935 in which he contested the will of his nephew Rev. Richard Barrett who left his entire estate to his housekeeper, a Miss Leah Louise Neville of 32 Main St., Macroom, Co. Cork. Richard's estate was was worth £7,211 and after the deduction of debts his assets came to £5,959. The case was eventually settled with Miss Neville agreeing to pay Michael £1,100 plus costs and Michael agreeing to withdraw his challenge to the will.

Maria JOHNSTON [Parents] was born about 1862 in Co. Cork. She died before 14 Jul 1945 in possibly Dublin. She was buried in Prospect Cemetery, Glasnevin, Dublin. Maria married Michael Joseph BARRETT on 19 Jun 1883 in St. Finbarr's Church, Cork.

According to the 1901 census Maria was born in Co. Cork, whereas Michael, her husband, and all her children were born in Cork city. I am told that Maria's family were Protestant and may have had Cavan connections. However, if Maria had been born into a Church of Ireland family then she must have converted to Catholicism upon her marriage as her religion in both 1901 and 1911 census returns is given as Romas Catholic. The 1911 census tells us that Maria and Michael had been married for 25 years and had nine children born alive, all of whom were still alive at the time of the census.

It is believed that Maria and her husband, Michael, separated and that Maria moved to Dublin afterwards.

Marriage Notes:

Witnesses to the marriage were Timothy McCarthy and Nora McSweeney.

Michael and Maria's addresses at the time of their marriage were 89 Evergreen St., Cork and 62 South Main St., Cork respectively.

They had the following children.

  M i
Richard BARRETT was born about 1884 in Cork city. He died in possibly Canada.

Richard emigrated to Canada.
  M ii
James BARRETT was born about 1885 in Cork city. He died in possibly Canada.

The 1901 census tells us that 15-year-old James was a solicitor's general clerk.

James emigrated to Canada.
  F iii
Hannah (Siobhan) BARRETT was born about 1886 in Cork city. She died on 28 Jan 1971 in St. Patrick's Hospital, Cork.

Siobhan, a teacher at St. Maries of the Isle school in Cork, never married. She lived at 9 Panorama Terrace, Sunday's Well, Cork.

According to her death certificate Siobhan died of cardiac failure and cancer of the rectum with secondaries in the liver. She had spent four months and three weeks in hospital prior to her death.
  M iv Edward (Ted) Joseph BARRETT was born on 11 May 1889.
  F v
Mary (Mai) BARRETT was born about 1891 in Cork city.

Mai was a teacher at Sunday's Well Girls' School in Cork.
  M vi
Michael BARRETT was born about 1894 in Cork city. He died on 7 Apr 1918 in Northern France. He was buried in St. Sever Cemetery Extension, Rouen.

Michael's parents, Michael and Maria, had a son named Michael on 27 October 1886 (born at 29 Friar St., Cork) but this does not tie in with the age of Michael in the 1901 and 1911 censuses (six and 16 respectively). It is possible that the Michael born in 1886 died as a child and that another son named Michael was born about 1894.

Michael was educated at North Monastery in Cork. He was a corporal with the Royal Engineers regiment, serving as a sapper, when he was killed in World War I.
  M vii Arthur Finbarr BARRETT was born on 8 Aug 1896. He died in 1980s.
