Sponsors at Edmond's baptism were William Carey and Mary Carey. Edmund's surname appears as "Keary' in the baptismal register and Edmond himself went by the name of Carey.

Edmond married Mary Ann PRIEST, daughter of Thomas PRIEST and Ann TIERNEY, in 1886 in Sydney. Mary was born about 1863.

I have been told Mary died in 1886 (in Sydney) but it seems this is not correct she had children born after this date.

  104 M vi
John (Jack) CAREY was born in Sydney. He died.

43. Mary CAREY (Edmond , Edmond , 'unknown' ) was born about 29 Apr 1851 in possibly Newtown, Soloheadbeg, Co. Tipperary. She was christened on 29 Apr 1851 in Solohead, Co. Tipperary. She died on 30 Sep 1929 in County Hospital, Fermoy, Co. Cork.

Sponsors at Mary's baptism were Michael Carey and Margaret Hanley. Mary's surname appears as "Keary' in the baptismal register.

Mary was about 30 years younger than her husband, Thomas.

At the time of the 1911 census, Mary, by then widowed, was living with her son Martin in Carrick-on-Suir, Co. Tipperary where Martin was working as manager of the gasworks. When he was appointed manager of the gasworks in Wicklow town and later Fermoy, Co. Cork Mary seems to have gone with him as an extract from the 1851 census dated 31 March 1920 (census was possibly checked to verify Mary's pension eligibility) gives her address in 1920 as "c/o M. J. Treacy, Gasworks, Fermoy".

Mary married Thomas TREACY, son of John TREACY and Mary LOOBY?, on 25 Feb 1873 in Solohead, Co. Tipperary. Thomas was born in possibly about 8 Nov 1821 in Soloheadbeg, Co. Tipperary. He was christened in possibly 8 Nov 1821 in Solohead, Co. Tipperary. He died on 24 Dec 1895 in Murgasty, Co. Tipperary.

Although it is known that Thomas was born in Soloheadbeg to a father named John Treacy and a a mother named Mary, we are unable to say for definite that he was a son of John Treacy and Mary Looby who married in February 1818. If he was indeed a son of John Treacy and Mary Looby, then he was born in November 1821 because a record of his baptism (on 8 November 1821) has been located (sponsors were John Hanley and Winifred Connors). Unfortunately this birth date does not tie in with the age given on his marriage record from February 1873, which looks like 37 (indicating he was born around 1835), but the age on the record is difficult to make out and could also be deciphered 50 or 51 (indicating he was born around 1822 - a nice fit with the baptismal record). However, Thomas's death record (December 1895) gives his age at 54, indicating he was born around 1841.

It is known for certain that our Thomas had a brother named Denis. Unfortunately no baptismal record for a Denis Treacy born in Soloheadbeg to a father named John and a mother named Mary was located.

At the time of his marriage, in 1873, Thomas's occupation was a farmer (according to his marriage record). At the time of the birth of his son, Thomas, in 1881, he was the superintendant of a coal yard (according to the birth record); at the time of the birth of his son Edmund in 1875 he was a shopkeeper; and at the time of his death in 1895 he was a labourer.

Thomas died of 'Cystitis (3-4 months)" and "Asthenia".

Interestingly, among the all the sponsors at the baptism of Thomas and Mary's children, there is not a single Treacy; the sponsors are mostly Carews. The reason for this is possibly the dispute that had arisen between Thomas and his (probably) only surviving brother, Denis, over their mother's will. See the notes above for Thomas's mother, Mary, for more details.

Marriage Notes:

Witnesses to the marriage of Thomas and Mary were Edmond Hanley and Catherine Carew.

Mary and Thomas had the following children.

  105 M i
John TREACY was born on 4 Dec 1873 in Soloheadbeg, Co. Tipperary. He was christened on 5 Dec 1873 in Solohead, Co. Tipperary. He died before 1 Nov 1874 in Soloheadbeg, Co. Tipperary.

Sponsors at John's baptism were Michael Looby and Catherine Carey.

Because a second John was born a year later, we assume that this John died shortly after birth.
  106 M ii
John TREACY was born about 30 Oct 1874 in Co. Tipperary. He was christened on 1 Nov 1874 in Tipperary.

Sponsors at John's baptism were Michael Looby and Catherine Carey.

There does not seem to be any recollection of John as an adult. He may have died as a child.
  107 M iii
Edmund TREACY was born on 6 Nov 1875 in Meeting St., Tipperary, Co. Tipperary. He was christened on 8 Nov 1875 in Tipperary, Co. Tipperary. He died in probably April 1906 in probably San Francisco.

Sponsors at Edmund's baptism were Edmund Carey and Margaret O'Dwyer.

Edmund emigrated to the United States as a young man. Ellis Island records were checked but nothing that definitely related to this Edmund was found.

I am told that Edmund probably died in the San Francisco earthquake of 1906 as he was living there at the time and nothing more was heard from him after the event. However, we have no documented evidence to prove this. Note that the Edmund Treacy who died in California on 7 October 1911, and who had brothers named John and Timothy, and who is buried in Holy Cross Cemetery in San Mateo, California, is NOT our Edmund. Treacy researchers may be interested to know that John, Timothy and Edmund were born in Co. Limerick in the 1850s/1860s and Timothy became a State Senator.
  108 M iv
Timothy (Timmy) Joseph TREACY was born about 16 Jul 1878 in Church St., Tipperary. He was christened on 16 Jul 1878 in Tipperary. He died on 28 Nov 1930 in Lisnabrinnia, Mountnugent, Co. Cavan. He was buried on 30 Nov 1930 in Ballinacree Cemetery, Mountnugent, Co. Cavan.

Sponsors at Timmy's baptism were were John Casey and Johanna Casey (should "Casey" read "Carey"?).

It appears Timmy became a Christian Brother as there is a 22-year-old Co. Tipperary-born brother named Timothy Treacy listed in the 1901 census with three other brothers at Railway Road, Bagenalstown, Co. Carlow. All four are teachers. It seems Timmy had moved to London by 1911. No record could be located for him in the Irish census of that year but in the 1911 UK census there is a 31-year-old Tipperary-born school teacher named Timothy Joseph Treacy (although our Timmy would have been 32 years of age at the time) listed as a boarder in the household of a Mr. John McGuinness and his Tipperary-born wife, Bridget, of 9 St. Kilda Road in West Ealing.

Timmy did not remain a Christian Brother for very long as he appears to have been living in Co. Wicklow in 1918 as a layman. Notes from The Anglo-Celt newspaper mention that "Mr. T.J. Treacy", who had been giving woodworking courses in Co. Cavan, had sent a letter to the Cavan Technical Committee, "dated from Wicklow, where Mr. Treacy lived", stating that he was unable to attend a committee meeting on 13 July 1918 owing to a bout of influenza. Timmy's brother Martin was working in Wicklow at this time and it is possible that Timmy was living with Martin. Martin moved to Fermoy. Co. Cork in 1919 but we do not know if Timmy remained in Wicklow after that or moved permanently to Co. Cavan.

Later editions of The Anglo Celt tell us that Timmy continued giving woodworking courses in Co. Cavan until 1929, with classes in Belturbet in 1918 and 1919, Shercock in 1920, Cootehill in 1921, Ballinagh and Bunnoe in 1926 and Maghera in 1929. However, on 6 November 1929, he left a course he was teaching in Mountnugent and was put on sick leave. Timmy was suffering from depression and had been expected to return to work a year later when, sadly, on 28 November 1930, he took his own life. He had used a gun belonging to the owner of the Lisnabrinnia lodging house where he had been living for about a year and where the incident took place. According to the inquest report, Timmy had not been in good health for many months and had been spending a lot of time in bed. A Dr. Cassidy told the inquest "I have been attending deceased for the past twelve months. On my first visit I found he was suffering from influenza and subsequent to this he developed neurasthenia¹; I strongly advised him to go into a nursing home, but he refused". Later in his deposition Dr. Cassidy said "The reason why I urged deceased to go to a nursing home was that I dreaded he might do himself an injury".

Full details of the inquest (which incorrectly states that Timmy was a native of Wicklow) can be found on pages 1 and 3 of The Anglo-Celt of 6 December 1930.  

1. A term, no longer used, describing 'nervous exhaustion' with sufferers displaying both psychological and physical symptoms such as fatigue, neuralgia, anxiety, dizziness and depression. 'Bed rest cure' in a hospital was usually prescribed.
+ 109 M v Thomas Joseph TREACY was born on 13 Apr 1881. He died on 13 Apr 1969.
  110 M vi
Martin Joseph TREACY was born on 16 Nov 1883 in Murgasty Cottages, Murgasty, Co. Tipperary. He died on 19 Jan 1977 in Fermoy, Co. Cork. He was buried in Kilcrumper Old Cemetery, Fermoy, Co. Cork.

Sponsors at Martin's baptism were Edmond Carew and Bridget Carew.

According to the 1901 census return for his mother's household in Murgasty, Co. Tipperary, Martin, aged 17, was a baker. By the time of the 1911 census he was a gasworks manager, living on The Quay, Carrick-on-Suir (presumably in the house that adjoined the gasworks on the Quay) with his widowed mother. In late 1914 Martin was promoted to manager of the gasworks in Wicklow and was replaced in Carrick by his elder brother Thomas.

We know from The Irish Times editions of 21 and 28 October 1916 that Martin saved a boy from drowning during his time in Wicklow: "Mr Martin Tracey (sic), gas manager, Wicklow, saved the life of a boy named Robert Culbert, Strand street, Wicklow... Mr. Tracey jumped in and brought him ashore in an unconscious condition."

It is known that Martin's brother Timmy was living in Wicklow in 1918, which makes me think that Timmy may have been living with Martin (and probably their mother) as the Treacy family appears to have had no other Wicklow connections. In 1919 Martin was transferred to Fermoy, Co. Cork as manager of the gasworks there. It appears he lived in Fermoy (in Duntahane) for the rest of his life.

       
Martin married Catherine FOGARTY, daughter of James FOGARTY, on 17 Jun 1919 in Carrick-on-Suir, Co. Tipperary. Catherine was born about 1885 in Portlaw, Co. Waterford. She died on 5 Jan 1964 in Fermoy, Co. Cork.

Catherine was matron of a workhouse or hospital (presumably in Fermoy).

Martin and Catherine, who lived in Duntahane, Fermoy, had no children.

Marriage Notes:

Martin and Catherine's marriage certificate gives an address of Carrick-on-Suir for Catherine and Wicklow for Martin.

44. Catherine (Kate) CAREW (Edmond , Edmond , 'unknown' ) was born about 18 Feb 1853 in possibly Newtown, Soloheadbeg, Co. Tipperary. She was christened on 18 Feb 1853 in Solohead, Co. Tipperary. She died in 1934 in New South Wales.

Sponsors at Kate's baptism were John Hanley and Maria Hanley.

Kate emigrated to Australia.

Catherine married Jeremiah HAMS on 11 Dec 1880 in Sydney. Jeremiah was born in 1848 in Wiltshire, England. He died in 1889 in New South Wales.

Jeremiah died at the age 40 of tuberculosis.

They had the following children.

+ 111 M i Archibald Augustus HAMS was born in 1885. He died in 1960.

Catherine also married William KANE about 1911 in Marrickville, New South Wales. William died.

46. Johanna Mary CAREW/CAREY (Edmond , Edmond , 'unknown' ) was born about 17 Feb 1857 in possibly Newtown, Soloheadbeg, Co. Tipperary. She was christened on 17 Feb 1857 in Solohead, Co. Tipperary. She died after 1 Jun 1911 in probably Hamilton, Ontario.

Sponsors at Johanna's baptism were Cornelius Hanley and Sarah Hanley.

Johanna's age on her marriage certificate is 25 although she would have been 30 years old at the time. Similarly, the 1901 Canadian census gives Johanna's date of birth as 17 March 1863, about five years later than her actual date of birth. It is possible of course that the Johanna born in February 1857 died as a child and another daughter, named Johanna, was born in March 1863.

Johanna and her husband, James, emigrated to Canada in 1887 (this information comes from the 1911 Canadian census), settling in Hamilton, Ontario.

Johanna married James Michael MURPHY, son of Thomas MURPHY, on 2 May 1887 in Solohead Chapel, Co. Tipperary. James was born about 1851 in Ireland. He died on 3 Aug 1906 in Hamilton, Ontario.

James's address at the time of his marriage, in May 1887, was Clonmeen, Co. Tipperary. He was a policeman at the time. However, following his emigration later in the year to Canada James worked initially as a labourer and later as a porter. We do not know where James was born.

James's marriage record also tells us he was 35 years of age when he married (i.e. born about 1851). However the 1901 census of Canada tells us he was born on 10 August 1860.

Marriage Notes:

Witnesses to the marriage were John Carey (sic) and Bridget Carey (sic), presumably Johanna's youngest brother and sister. The Carew and Carey surnames were interchangeable in south Tipperary at the time.  

Johanna and James had the following children.

  112 M i
Thomas (Tom) Patrick MURPHY was born on 17 Mar 1887 in John St., Limerick.
  113 F ii
Katharine (Christina) MURPHY was born on 14 Jan 1889 in Hamilton, Ontario.

  117 M vi
James Michael MURPHY was born on 6 Apr 1897 in Hamilton, Ontario.

James worked as a barber in Hamilton.

His middle name appears as Patrick rather than Michael on his marriage record (1935).
       
James married Lorna Faith MCLEAN, daughter of Clifford MCLEAN and Rebecca CONLIN, on 4 Mar 1935 in Hamilton, Ontario. Lorna was born about 1898 in Smiths Falls, Ontario.

47. Daniel CAREW (Edmond , Edmond , 'unknown' ) was born about 1 Apr 1859 in Newtown, Soloheadbeg, Co. Tipperary. He was christened on 1 Apr 1859 in Solohead, Co. Tipperary. He died on 30 Nov 1930 in Soloheadbeg, Co. Tipperary.

Sponsors at Daniel's baptism were Daniel Hanley and Honora Godfrey. The family's address on the baptismal record is given as Newtown. Presumably this is the townland of Newtown in the parish of Soloheadbeg, and Daniel's birthplace.

According to the 1911 census, Daniel was a farmer and farrier (blacksmith). He and his wife and children are the only Carew family listed in Soloheadbeg. Assuming he inherited the family farm, it is probable that his elder brothers, Edmund and Timothy, had died or emigrated.

Daniel married Mary COFFEY, daughter of William COFFEY, on 1 Mar 1897 in Solohead Chapel, Co. Tipperary. Mary was born about 1862 in probably Gortanerrig, Soloheadbeg, Co. Tipperary. She died on 17 Aug 1933 in Soloheadbeg, Co. Tipperary.

According to the 1911 census, Daniel and Mary had four children born alive, three of whom were alive in 1911.

Mary died of stomach cancer.
