STANTONS, and Stauntons of Islandeady, County Mayo

I must include this wonderful work as amongst the research is Walter Staunton.   Our direct ancestor is also Walter.    There was only three found in the whole of the County for the dates we know to be accurate, and this was the marriage of his son Edward in the year 1844 in Westport County Mayo to Honor Green.  Edward was born in 1817.  We estimate the birth of his dad Walter to be circa 1790 or thereabouts.  This research has been compiled by someone on the Mayo website looking for their own ancestors.

line from Denis to Walter

 

I have copied over all this information as it is so precious that it must be preserved.  Please send in comments

3. Some questions I have:

· Can anyone in the area untangle some the messy data that I am sharing about the Stantons, Horans and Corleys?
· Are there tombstone memorials for the 1840 to 1890 period?
· Where would tenants from Cloonkeen, Derrycoosh, Killadeer, be buried?
· If there are graveyards at Islandeady, Glenisland and Raheens…have their tombstones been transcribed and available?
· Why are there the “Rich Stauntons” of Westport as opposed to the “poor” ones elsewhere? What makes it so?

4. Some quoted historical sources about Islandeady:

“One Justice of the Peace from Islandeady…reported to a Parliamentary Committee in 1835 that during the years of the Napoleonic Wars, ‘the conditions of the poor…was prosperous to the extreme’…. Page 62

1892 Poor Law Inspector repot:
The typical Islandeady Autumn and Winter diet consisted of…

“Breakfast – Potatoes and milk or butter, followed by tea and flour bread if taken”
Dinner – Consists of potatoes, with eggs or fish [salt], generally herrings”
Supper – Potatoes and milk or butter is always taken, except by families in better circumstances, who use tea and flour bread” Page 62 Land and Popular Politics in Ireland by Donald E” Jordan, Jr”; 1994

The dietary is much the same, except that stirabout, made wither of Indian or oaten meal, takes the place of potatoes” Indian meal is not much favoured except by very poor people, and oaten meal, the use of which at one time had almost died out, is now again being much used”

A reference to the March 1880 Islandeady “censure” of Louden by Rev” Thomas O’Malley, PP, the then Land League branch president” Page 275 Land and Popular Politics in Ireland by Donald E” Jordan, Jr”; 1994

A reference to the political situation surrounding the 10 April 1881 Land meeting at Kilbree, Islandeady” Page 307 Land and Popular Politics in Ireland by Donald E” Jordan, Jr”; 1994

Sunday 16 April 1848″ Petition of John McIntire, Carnacoole, to Lord Lieutenat”
Petition is fully quoted and contains references to…

McINTIRE’S claim that his family is near starvation
His steward Thomas PHELLIN is mentioned as corroborative witness
John CONNOR, the schoolmaster, denied McIntire’s children schooling and bread
Has no wordly possesions but for “the daylight, glory be to God in his mercy towards us”
Implores that his children be accepted at the school
Mention of Edmond MORAN of Derrycouce has a family of six who receives “9 stone of meal” but was “curtailed this, tree weeks past”
Mention of Capt Ferren, Thomas McManmon [relieving officer], and Ulick WALSH, Derrycouse tailor

The petition ends with, “Save us from hunger and starvation and petitioners will incessantly pray””

There is a rebuttal by Ferren which ends, “The relieving officer offered the family a ticket for the workhouse but they did not accept it”

Michael went to his wife’s brother [Michael Kane] for assistance, i”e” was a “lodger””
Subsequently, his son, about age 9, reported to his uncle Michael Kane that his father “was dead on the roadside””

Reported to the Dublin Evening Post by Capt Farren on 3-8-1848″
Sited in Swords – “In Their own Words””

[GV – There was a Michael Kane @ Derrycoosh/Islandeady and Cloonkeen/Aglish contiguous townlands, which were solely owned by Lord Sligo!

The infamous Sir Roger Palmer owned 90,000 acres in Mayo

In July 1848, The Telegraph reported how
at Islandeady his ‘crowbar invincibles’, pulled down several houses [including a STANTON cabin], and drove forth the unfortunate inmates to sleep in the adjoining fields” On Thursday we witnessed the wretched creatures endeavouring to root out the timber of the houses, with the intention of constructing some sort of sheds to screen their children from the heavy rain falling at the time” The pitiless pelting storm has continued ever since, and if they have survived its severity, they must be more than human beings'”
1847 –1850 People weakened by hunger and fever were unable to give proper burials to dead neighbors and relatives” The Tyrawly Herald described the situation at Leigue Cemetery in Ballina:
‘in some places the graves are so shallow that portions of the coffins are visible above ground'”
[eventually they ran out of or couldn’t afford coffins and dogs fed off the dead]

OBITUARY
On Monday February 1st, there passed peacefully away to his eternal reward in the bosum of his creator one of the most prominent and charming figures in his native district of Islaneady, the late Mr Harry Staunton, at the advanced aged of 91 years
He was a real type of Irish manhood. His loveable, sincere and generous disposition won for him the hearts of all with whom he came in contact. As were the people of his time, he was strictly upright in all his dealing, as well as kind and sympathetic to the needy and distressed.
Physically he was endowed with a constitution which was adamant. During life he never complained of the least illness: he did not know what drugs or medicine meant, and gave their merits no attention. It was a perfect treat to spend an evening with him, and listen to his account of what landlordism was like in his early years. He would also draw harrowing pictures of black 47.
Till the last he was able to go about as nimble as a man of 60. He had a special delight in going about viewing the fields on his farm. He found great pleasure also in visiting his neighbours. His death was accelerated by a chill which he contracted while returning home from a visit to a neighbour. He enjoyed Gaelic song and story and in these felt as much at home with the young as with the aged. All who knew him cherished his society – nothing was heard on the day of his funeral but sincere regret that such an enjoyable figure: even at his advanced age, had passed from amongst the people. His wife the late Mrs Annie Staunton pre-deceased him by seven years. He was an ardent Catholic and attended to his religious duties to the last. His parish priest Rev Paul Mcloughlin was a frequent visitor to his home and administered the Last Sacraments on the day preceding his desmise.
At 4pm on Tuesday 2nd inst his remains were carried from his native home in Derrycreeve where he saw the light, and laid on a catafalque before the high alter in Islaneady Parish Church. The remains were escorted to the church by a great concourse of sympathisers.
After Requiem Mass on Wednesday 3rd inst, the funeral left for the old family burial ground of Islaneady and was one of the largest witnessed for years in the district. The parishes of Castlebar, Kilmeena, Newport, Ballyheane, Park, Kilawalla were, with Islaneady, represented in the long funeral cortege.
The chief mourners were: Messrs PE Staunton, Bohess, Islaneady: Henry Staunton Derrycreeve, do and M A Staunton, Shriveport, Louis, USA sons; Mrs Bridget Staunton Park Turlough daughter; Mrs P E Staunton, Mrs Henry Staunton, Mrs M A Staunton daughters in law; Messrs Emmet, George, Henry, Pat Staunton, Bohess; John, James, Willie, Tom, Henry, Peter and Patrick Staunton, Park grandsons; Misses Mary, Kate, Annie and Teresa Staunton, Bohess; Annie and Mary Staunton Derrycreeve; Annie, Norah, and Mary Staunton, Park grand daughters; Misses Ginnelly and Moran, Derrintlowry nieces; Mr john Moran, Sion Hill, Castlebar brother in law; Mrs John Moran Sion Hill, and Mrs Michael Moran Mountgorden sister in law; Messrs Thomas, Michael, William, and Pat Staunton, Kilawall, and Mr John Moran auctioneer, Crossmolina cousins
