The Traceys of Wexford can trace their history back to the beginning of historical records, as Wexford formed part of the territory of the Uí Bairrche. It would appear from the records of the mid-1800’s that there was four main settlements of families: North Wexford (close to Arklow, Co. Wicklow); Central Wexford (Enniscorthy and Ferns); South East Wexford (Wexford Town and Rosslare); and South West Wexford (New Ross). Named after the Traceys, there are the townlands of Ballytracey (Baile Uí Threasaigh, Ballegresaigh, Tracey’s Town) just north of Boolavogue, four miles south east of Ferns, and in the south Tracystown [Traceystown] East (Baile Uí Threasaigh Thior) and Tracystown West (Baile Uí Threasaigh Thiar), located 3 miles south-east and 2 miles west of Taghmon respectively. In the Grand Panel of the county of Wexford of 1608, there is a reference to Illanstrassock (Tracey’s bog/marsh islands) in the Barony of Gwery [Gorey]. The best match may indicate that it is the Island townlands of the civil parish of Rossminoge, west of Gorey Town. South Wexford may also the home of a Norman Tracey family, as there are historical records dating from 1280 to 1307, but there does not seem to be any references after this date.

6 November 1770 Freemans Journal

To the Committee for conducting the Free-Press

Dearest Brethren,

As the Freedom and Liberty of the Press, is no small Part of the Happiness of the Subject, and that through the Channel of your Paper, Facts can be related without Distinction of Persons; I take the Liberty of requesting you to insert in your next Paper the following Case, which you may rely on being a Fact, having seen it on Record in the Court of Exchequer.

Not 100 Miles from the upper End of Great Britain-street, lives a young Reverend Parson, from Size, and surprizing abilitiees well qualified for a Mitre, and from his Marraige to the Niece of a Right Reverend, not without Hopes of one. This Gentleman's Father, A Resident, near Arklow, in the County of Wicklow, where he had a small Estate and some Leasehold Interests, in or about the Year 1745, set about 70 Acres, Part of his Leaseholds, to one Garret Tracy, at a Rent of about 11s. an Acre, which Lease and Premises this Tenant has since held, and more frequently for that Time paid the Rent before than after it was due, as appears by the Receipts. This young Parson on the Death of his Father, as only Child, became seized of his whole Possessions, and in the Year 1769 applied to said Tracy, to surrender his old Lease, so made by his Father, and take a new one from him, at a rent of about 18s. an Acre, which said Tracy agreed to, and this young Parson having declared the greatest Regard for his and his Father's good old Tenant, who not only paid him before Hand, but was ready on all Occasions to join him in Security, told this poor simple honest Man that to save him Expence, he would draw the Leases; accordingly printed Leases were filled up and executed by said Parties, but the old ones, through the Design of his Reverence not cancelled or surrendered. His Reverence then alledging, as is likely was the case, that he was in Want of Money, applied to his Tenant to advance him a Year's Rent, and he not having it in his Power to comply with his Request, his Reverence, in Hillary Term last, caused a Bill of Discovery to be filed against this old Tenant, on the aforesaid Transactions, and is proceeding thereon, to dispossess him of his Farm.

Quere, was it upon such Principles, the Acts against the Growth of Popery were founded?

As I am not acquainted with any of the Parties, if his Reverence will Please to quiet his honest Tenant, in the Possession of his Farm, and be for the future more careful of his Conduct, it is all that intended by,

Gentlemen,

Your Well-wisher,

John Telltruth

20 January 1864 Wexford Independent

Gorey - from our own correspondent...The attemped murder by shooting near Arklow. I am informed that a Mr Beaky of Dublin, purchased the lands occupied by respectable farmers named Murphy, Tracy and Gregory, who held that land for a considerable period, and greatly improved it - and, in fact, built out offices, &c., and paid their rent up to the day. Mr Murphy, I am told, built the coast guard station at Kilmicheal, but all were disposed of their holdings. The man that was fired at was a brother to Mr Beaky that purchased the land. The shot was fired from the lower story, and several grains penetrated the boards of the loft, and were found under the bed. There was a notice posted upon the door, stating that if he did not repair what he had done, to prepare for eternity; and also "That Tipperary Pat had come." There was a coffin drawn out on the notice posted. [Griffith’s Valuation has a John Gregory of Kilmichael]

 

In March 1865, a woman named Charlotte Tracy about 35 or 40 years of age, took suddenly ill yesterday evening in one of the carriages of the Dublin and wicklow Railway, at Harcourt street Terminus. She was a servant in Lower Gardiner street, and was proceeding to her friends at Gorey, county Wexford. [There is a Charotte Treasy born in Wexford in 1845]

...Constable Jas. Treacy, Queen's Co., to Wexford...

Constable Treacy (Clonaslee, Queen's County). HC Deb 07 July 1910 vol 18 c1768 1768

§ Mr. DELANY asked the Chief Secretary whether his attention has been called to the case of Constable [James] Treacy, lately stationed at Clonaslee, Queen's County, against whom it was alleged that on a certain Sunday in October last, when acting as barrack orderly between nine and ten o'clock at night, he stopped two men outside the barracks, and, after procuring drink for them from an adjacent public-house, incited them to smash the bicycle belonging to the sergeant of a neighbouring station and throw it into the river; that on another occasion this constable supplied horns to two young men, prompting them at the same time to sound a local Protestant, lately married, with the object of annoying the sergeant; and that he advised certain persons to feign drunkenness before the sergeant, get arrested, and then go before a doctor and a magistrate and charge the sergeant with unlawful arrest; whether he is aware that evidence of a most reliable character is forthcoming in support of those charges; and will he grant a public sworn inquiry in order that the allegations against this constable may be thoroughly investigated?

§ Mr. REDMOND BARRY My attention has already been drawn to the matters referred to in the question, which were investigated by two experienced police officers some months ago. The Inspector-General then came to the conclusion that the case of Constable Treacy would be sufficiently met by his transfer to another county, as already ordered on other grounds. I see no reason for any further inquiry.

Royal Irish Constabulary (Constable Treacy).HC Deb 13 July 1910 vol 19 cc573-4W 573W

§ Mr. DELANY asked the Chief Secretary whether he can say upon what date Constable Treacy left Clonaslee, and where he is at present stationed; and whether he is engaged in ordinary police duties?

§ Mr. BIRRELL Constable Treacy left Clonaslee on 14th May and is at present stationed at Coolgreaney [Coolgreany Co. Wexford]. He performs ordinary police duties.

Royal Irish Constabulary (Constable Treacy).HC Deb 14 July 1910 vol 19 cc591-2 591

§ Mr. REDDY (for Mr. Delany) asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether he will order a magisterial investigation into the charges preferred against Constable Treacy, lately stationed at Clonaslee, Queen's County, seeing that the evidence of eight independent witnesses is forthcoming charging this constable with incitement to crime and outrage on three distinct occasions?

§ Mr. BIRRELL As the hon. Member has already been informed, this matter has been investigated by two experienced police officers. The constable has been transferred to another county, and I see no reason for any further inquiry.

§ Mr. REDDY (for Mr. Delany) asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether, at the inquiry held on 19th April at Clonaslee, Queen's County, by District-Inspectors O'Connor, Kanturk, and Wallace, Cappawhite, into the charges of incitement to crime and outrage preferred against Constable Treacy, the evidence was taken on oath; and whether he will lay a copy of the report of those two police officers and the minutes of evidence upon the Table of the House?

§ Mr. BIRRELL Evidence was not taken on oath at the inquiry referred to. I do not propose to lay upon the Table of the House a copy of the report of the officers who conducted the inquiry.

The earliest record is that of Roderick O’Trassy who is listed as a Bishop of Ferns, and who is reported to have died in 1145 AD. His position would indicate that the Traceys and the Uí Bairrche held some power in that area at that time. Close by, there is the townland of Ballytracey (Baile Uí Threasaigh, Tracey’s Town, 1654 Ballitrassie/Ballitrassy) at Boolavogue, four miles south east of Ferns, which may have been his homeland. To the north, overlooking Ballytracey is Carrigroe Hill, which was used in ancient times for the celebration of Lughnasa (Halloween). It has an unusual cleft rock formation called the giants bed. After the Norman invasion, Ballytracey may have become the property of the church, similar to nearby Ballyregan, as part of a resolution of a dispute in 1226-7 between John de St. John, Bishop of Ferns and the Prendergasts of Enniscorthy.

De Episcopis Fernensibus

 

 

Extract from Ware 1665

 

 

In 1624, Lord Esmond on behalf of his ward stated that Thos Tracy (of Ferns?), among others, had caused loss of profits to the amount of £1000. Implicated in the 1641 rebellion was Thomas Trassy of Cloghaman, gent (Clohamon on the Slaney, six miles north west of Ferns). In 1642, Nic Tracie also of Cloghamon was named as a landowner who was in active rebellion. “The list is a veritable 'Who's Who' of Catholic Wexford in the mid seventeenth-century…” (Whelan 1990)

 

Six miles south of Ferns is Enniscorthy, which became the main economic centre of the area from medieval times onwards, due to it’s position on the Slaney river. It is also the main centre of the Traceys according to later records. The earliest reference is to Patrick Tracey of Kilcarberry Hill, (St. Johns townland), south of Enniscorthy Town, which is located on the west side of the Slaney and it’s tributary the Boro river.

Patrick Tracey (1711-1789)

 

Painting by John Trumbull in 1784-6 of Captain Patrick Tracey, born 1711 in Kilcarberry Hill, Enniscorthy, died 1789 Newburyport Massachusetts North America. His nephews Captain Nicholas Tracy and Captain James Tracy also followed him to America. The Tracy families of Newburyport were major players in the American revolution. Captain Nathaniel Tracy (1751-1796), one of the sons of Patrick Tracey, was the chief financier of the American Revolution.

 

The following webpage contains a history of the family:

 

Traceys of Enniscorthy and Newburyport

 

The following are articles on the family:

 

Lee, Thomas Amory (1921) The Tracy Family of Newburyport. Essex Institute Historical Collections 57 (January 1921) L 58.

 

Echo 28 August 1937 (Enniscorthy)

 

Sunday Post 1st August 1937 (Boston)

 

 

 

Nathaniel Tracy (1751-1796)

 

It would appear that Patrick Tracy had a brother Robert Tracy. In 1768 there is a record of the will of Robert Tracy, of Killcarberry, which is not available from the Irish National Archives. According to Thomas Amory Lee, William Tracy Eustis (1822-1906) procured a copy of this will, and he states the following:

 

“Robert Tracy of Killcarberry, Wexford, Ireland, farmer, died between December, 1767, and Feb. 22, 1768, when his will was probated. He therein leaves one shilling each to sons Matthew, John, James, and to daughters Katherine Devereux, otherwise Tracy, wife of Thomas Devereux, and Mary Tracy, otherwise Nevil, wife of John Nevil; to youngest son, Martin Tracy, one-fourth part of thirty-two acres in Killcarberry, corn housed; under the management of Henry Tracy of the Ring of St. John in said county, and Matthew Tracy of Rotholm, barony of Forth, in said county, farmers, they to be executors. Apparently his wife died before 1767. Her name is unknown.”

 

In 1838, in a chancery advertisement of John Flood and Sons [or others], Plaintiffs, and William Sutton and Sons [or others], Defendants, there is the following reference:

 

“that part and parcel of the Lands of St. John's as formerly in the possession of Henry Tracy, deceased, but now in the actual possession of the said Patrick Sutton and his under tenants, containing about 15 Irish acres, situated in the manor of St. John's and county of Wexford.”

 

For the tithe records available, there are no Suttons named in the locality but they are there in the Griffiths Valuation at King's Island, Clonmore and Guttle St. Enniscorthy.

 

Returning to the will, since his son Nicholas is not mentioned in the will, it may be that he had left for America before the will was drawn up. By the same reasoning, if the James referenced in the will is Captain James Tracy, then he would have left for America after the death of his father. In the Freemans Journal of February 1777, it states that Captain James Tracy, is an Irishman, had served in our navy, and is a nephew to old Tracy [Patrick], the principal merchant of Newbury Port, and cousin to the owners of the present prize [Nathaniel and John Tracy].  In the will of Captain Nicholas Tracy of Newburyport who died in 1787, there is a reference to his brothers Matthew Tracy and John Tracy and his sister Catherine Devereux, all of the Kingdom of Ireland, which may mean that they were alive at that time. The following Memorial of the Dead is listed for Old Ballymore SE Wexford: “Here lies the body of Catherine Devereux alias Tracy of Colkeren…her husband Thomas De(vereux) who depd this life May 12th 1803 aged 78”

 

The Tracys of Newburyport were trading and travelling to Europe and presumably had contact with Wexford. It was Nathaniel Tracy who forwarded letters from Wexford to Commodore John Barry [father of the American Navy], regarding his relatives living there (SE Wexford):

 

“Letters from Ireland - the first definite word from his family since the outbreak of war [1775] were awaiting Barry when he reached New London, on July 20. Their exact contents we cannot be sure of, but, apparently, they contained word of the death of his parents, and the destitute situation of his two sisters, Margaret Howlin and Eleanor Hayes, and their little families.

"They are really very moving to me," the Captain wrote to Nathaniel Tracy, at Boston, who had forwarded the letters. He asked Tracy to arrange for payment of twenty guineas annually to the unfortunates, and suggested the money be cleared through London bankers.”

Ref: Clark, William Bell (1938) Gallant John Barry 1745-1803. The Story Of A Naval Hero Of Two Wars. The Macmillan Company, NY.

 

There is also a record of a letter from Barry in 1783, regarding the money that he owed to him (Griffin).

 

One of the Tracys of Newburyport, Captain Thomas Tracy who left Ireland around 1766, did travel to Ireland in 1783 and visited his parents, but it is not completely certain that he was from Wexford.

 

The following is the family tree drawn up from the information available:

 

1. Unknown Tracy

1.1. Robert Tracy, farmer of County Wexford (died about December 1767)

1.1.1 Katherine Tracy of Wexford married Thomas Devereux (born about 1725, died Ballymore, Wexford May 12th 1803 aged 78)

1.1.2 Captain Nicholas Tracy (born about 1726 Co. Wexford, died on 23rd May 1787 Newburyport, MA)

1.1.3 Matthew Tracy of Wexford (may have died after 1787)

1.1.4 John Tracy of Wexford (may have died after 1787)

1.1.5 James Tracy of Wexford, perhaps Captain James Tracy (died perhaps October 1777 MA)

1.1.6 Mary Tracy of Wexford married John Nevil

1.1.7 Martin Tracy, youngest son, of Killcarberry Wexford

1.2. Captain Patrick Tracey (born about 1711 at Kilcarberry Hill, Enniscorthy, Co. Wexford, died 28th February 1789 Newburyport, MA)

 

Henry Tracy, farmer, of the Ring of St. John, Enniscorthy

 

Matthew Tracy, farmer, of Rotholm [Ratholm], barony of Forth

 

In 1800, James Treacy was tried for his part in the murder of English and Tremble in 1798 and was transported to Australia for 7 years. In 1808, he tried to to cross the mountains but was caught and was sentenced to one hundred lashes for absenting himself from his master.  He was granted a certificate of freedom in 1810.

 

"In the first week of the Rebellion, my father, John English, John Tremble and myself came out of... Park, where we had been concealed. At the crossroads of Knockmarshall [St. Johns Enniscorthy], met the prisoner and a party of rebels, the prisoner armed with a pike, and seeing the party, went to hide. I was ordered down to the party by one Devereux [of the Leap], who was a captain. We were then ordered away and the prisoner. James Treacey cried out "Lash the Orange dogs away, everyone of them shall not live”.  I had a sore leg and was ordered by Devereux to be guarded until I got well and then was sent to be with the rest...”

 

There is a British War Office/Chelsea Hospital record for a Patrick Treacy (b. about 1778) of St. Mary Parish Wexford, who enlisted in 1801, at ‘Inniscorthy’. He served 7 years as a foot soldier and 11½ years as a dragoon. According to the record he served over 15 years in the East Indies, but there is another reference to an extra eight years approximately in the 15th India. He was discharged with a fractured left leg. He is described as five feet two inches in height, brown hair, grey eyes, dark complexion and a locksmith by trade. His physical description is also included in the record. He retired to the Cape, South Africa on a pension granted in March 1819.  The records of 1830, state that he was on a full pension of 1s per day.

 

It may be presumed that Traceys lived in this area before the written records that are available. There is land in Kilcarberry/Ballinapierce called Treacy’s Land. There may also be indications of an earlier history. There is a family by the name of Hassey living in Davidstown Parish. Hassey is a very rare name in Ireland and may be dervived from the pronunciation of the Gaelic name of Uí Threasaigh. There is also a townland in the parish called Clohass (Clogh hassie), which may be named after the family. In addition, there is another townland named Ballinavary (Baile-na-mBarrach), which may indicate an Uí Bairrche connection.

 

There are interesting reports describing the unusual burial habits of the Traceys of the area:

 

Ancient Mode of Interment

To the Editor of the Independent

Sir - As to the manners and customs of our ancestors are sinking into oblivion, may I tresspass on your columns for the following account of a singular, and picturesque custom of burying their dead, observed by some families, of a respectable class of peasantry in this immediate neighbourhood, which custom here was confined solely, for at least a century back, to some families named Tracy, with their connections, Doyles, &c., and a family named Daly, in no way connected with the Tracy family. The grave being dug deep, stones were placed within the grave at each end, about 2½ feet in height, the grave was then neatly lined with soil or grass scrolls of about 2½ feet in width, and of sufficient length to extend from the surface to, and on the bottom of the grave, fastened to the bank with skewers of wood, next a bed of dry grass and moss was laid in the grave, raised at the head like a pillow - the corpse wrapped closely in a sheet, was carried on a broad plank to the grave, where being deposited on the bed of grass, the plank was laid over it, being supported at each end by the stones before mentioned, which kept it about 1½ feet above the corpse; next, the upper part of the scrolls were unfastened from the side and carefully laid over the plank, the end scrolls in like manner. The grave was then filled up with earth, and covered with a scroll in the ordinary way. The last so buried thus was John Doyle, of craan, about the year 1818, in St. John's church yard, adjoining this town, the burying place of those families. The grave was prepared and the funeral conducted by the Tracys. Since then the younger branches of the family, having the conducting of funerals, have fallen into the habits of their neighbours. Caoineing, or keening, was not customary at those funerals. Having been at funerals in remote districts of the south and west of Ireland, where the corpse was attended to the grave by caoiners (keeners), I never knew or heard then, of any family voluntarily burying their dead without coffins. Now, as we are a mixed race in this county, - the descendants of old Irish, Danes, Welsh, Anglo-Normans, &c., you, or any of your numerous readers, giving information, of the origin of the above custom will much oblige.

Your humble servant,

J.P.

Enniscorthy, Feb 17, 1848.

Wexford Independent of 19 February 1848

.

Church records for the area begin at the start on the nineteenth century. Just north of Kilcarberry is Enniscorthy town and entries for Traceys in the Catholic Church records start from 1801 onwards. A mile to the west of Kilcarberry, and also on the Boro river is Ballinapierce (Ballineperesagh, Ballina pierce) townland in the parish of Davidstown. Entries for Traceys in the Catholic Church records start from 1806 onwards.

 

There is another British War Office/Chelsea Hospital record for a Michael Tracey (b. circa 1825), born in the parish of Enniscorthy, Wexford and joined the 13th Regiment in Dublin on the 24 of January 1844 at the age of 19. His service record states that he served 20 years 111 day, during which period he served 11 years 10 months abroad, 10 years 8 months in The East indies and 1 year 2 months in China.

He was discharged being unfit for further duty on the 30th June 1864. He had four good conduct badges, no medals and one court martial. He served as a private in the 13th Light Infantry from 24th March? 1844 to 30th May 1844, and in the 87th from 1st June 1844 to his discharge. He was 5'8", fresh complexion, grey eyes and dark brown hair. His intended residence is given as Liverpool.

 

In the Tithe records of 1827-1833, there appears to four Tracey familys located in and around Enniscorthy town and also in the in the Catholic Parish of Monagear. The families in Ballinapierce are the only ones that remained in the area.

 

In 1833, Martin Tracy married Margaret Neil. She was probably also from Ballinapierce or nearby St. Johns. In December 1801, Thomas Neale of Ballinapierce was murdered, his house burned down, and his children Michael and Catherine were also injured. Michael Neile is named in the Tithe records for Ballinapierce. In consequence of the crimes, a Proclamation was issued by the Lord Lieutenant and Council, offering a reward for information of £200 for each person prosecuted, or a pardon if they were involved and informed on their fellows. Thomas Neale is buried in Clonmore Cemetery. Margaret Neil was probably the grand-daughter of Thomas Neale.

 

In the 1840 British Regimental Registers for Canada, there is a Thomas Tracy. 5'7.25", 18 years, sallow complexion, hazel eyes, brown hair, b. Enniscatley [Enniscorthy] Wexford, Labourer, enlisted Enniscorthy 13th Jany 1840.

 

There is a reference that an Arthur Tracy (s. of John & Julia Tracy, both dead), Roman Catholic, stone mason and bricklayer, aged 27 years of Enniscorthy, Wexford, Ireland & Julia Tracy (d. of Patrick & Julia Tierney, both dead) Roman Catholic, domestic servant, aged 26 years of Dublin, Ireland, arrived in New South Wales, Australia on the ‘Alfred’ on the 29 Jan 1842. Their child, Jane Tracy was born on board 28 January 1842. Also on board ship and who may be relatives, were the children of Patrick and Mary Tracy of Dublin, Ann Tracey aged 19 and John Tracy, bricklayer, aged 23 who was married to Anne Lachlan of Wicklow. They were bounty immigrants, whose passage was paid by the colonial government, in order to have suitable skilled labour and tradespeople. There are church records from St. Nicholas Parish, Dublin for Arthur’s marriage in 1839 and the baptism of a son William in 1840.

 

In 1853, the Griffith Valuation records show Martin and James Tracy occupying lands and houses in Ballinapierce and Martin has a larger holding of land in nearby Dunanore. From an examination of the land maps, their holdings appear to be on the north bank of the Boro between Ballinapierce Bridge and Victoria Bridge (Soldiers Hole). These are the plots maked 11 and 12 in the middle pink map. According to the land records, Martin gave up his holding in Dunanore around the 1860s. His holding in Ballinapierce passed to Matthew Tracey around the 1880’s after which it passed out of the family. It appears that James gave up his holding in Ballinapierce for a while around the 1870’s, which seems to be reflected in the church records. In the 1880’s the land was in possession of his representatives, which may be presumed to be his daughters. The lands in Ballinapierce, were first let by the De Burghs and then sub-let by the the Beattys. Perhaps a co-incidence, in 1885 and 1886, the agent for the letting of Ballinapierce House (occupied by Philip Beatty) and approximately 100 acres in Ballinapierce, was Richard H. Tracy of Naas, Kildare (see Kildare). He worked for the De Burgh family in Naas, who also owned the land in Ballinapierce.

In the middle part of the 1860’s Mathew Tracey had moved into Enniscorthy town, was married and had children. In July 1872, he made a contribution to the Galway Vindication Fund. In April 1880 in a letter to the Irish Times, Matthew Tracy is listed as one of the electors of Enniscorthy, who objected to the treatment of Parnell when he visited the town. In Bassett’s Directory of 1885, there is a reference to Mathew Treacy, Baker & Flour Dealer, Market Street, Enniscorthy. There is also a reference to James Treacy, land-owner in Kiltealy to the west of Enniscorthy.

 

In October 1877, at the funeral of Sir James Power, Bart. of Edermine, Enniscorthy, county Wexford, one of chief mourners was J.E. Tracy, solicitor, of Cork. He appears to be the only chief mourner from outside of Wexford and his relationship to the Power family has not been determined.

 

In 1888, Matthew Treacy, Cathedral street, Enniscorthy was advertising for a female confectioner.

 

In 1894, there are two classified advertisements in the Irish Times for a Mrs Tracy of Kildrea [Kiltrea?] House and Chapel Street, Enniscorthy, looking for positions for a cook and a yardman and wife.

 

In the 1901 and 1911 census records for Enniscorthy town, there only a reference to Matthew Treacy’s family. In 1911, the family lived in various addresses in the town. Also there appears to be a discrepancy in the age of John Treacy.

 

In 1913, John Treacy was part of the White-Boys Drama Class and in May 1914, he was one of the cast of a production in the Athenaeum, staged by the Gaelic League.

 

In 1916, the assistant to the principal of the Davidstown national school was Kathleen Dempsey, who later married J. Treacy [unknown address], and both went to Canada in 1919.

[Note: The records are hand written and can be difficult to decipher. There are multiple records for Francy/Franey, greater than the number for Griffiths, which could be interpreted as Trassey.]

 

In the Griffiths Valuation of 1853 the following were recorded:

James and Martin Tracy of Ballynapierce St. Johns, South of Enniscorthy. Martin Tracey is also recorded in the neighbouring townland of Dunanore, Clonmore. These areas are located on the west bank of the Slaney and it’s tributary the Boro. It would appear that Martin now held the lands in Ballnapierce previously held by Michael in the Tithe Records.

9 Jun 1941 Small Dwellings Acquisition Acts

Application Miss Annie Tracey: Under date 22nd May 1941, Miss Annie Tracey, Main St., Ferns, wrote that she had made application some time ago for loan under Small Dwellings Acquisition Acts but nad been informed there was no money available. She Wlderstood now that three or four selected applicants did not intend to erect houses and if any of them withdrew she wished her application to be favourably considered. She was very anxious to start as soon as pOSSible, as unless she did she would forfeit two years' rent of the house in which she was living. The site on which she proposed building was in the centre of the village of Ferns where a demolition scheme had carried out. It would be a great asset to the place to have new houses erected on the demolished site as soon as possible. The Secretary stated that Mrs. Kavanagh (formerly Keegan) who had been selected in respect of loan for house proposed to be erected on Gorey Corporation Lands, had withdrawn her application.

The following resolution was adopted on the motion of Mr. 0'Byrne, seconded by Miss O'Ryan:- "Tnat we recommend the County Council to agree, subject to the sanction of the Minister for Local Government and public health to loan of £150 in respect of house to be erected at Ferns Village being granted to Miss Annie Tracey, Ferns." The County SoliCitor submitted letter from Mrs. Kavanagh under date 1st May 1941 stating she bad been Wlable to secure a contractor to bUild for tne amount of loan, so that her application would have to be withdrawn. If things 1mproved she would ask ner application to be reconsidered

 Traceys of South Wexford

 

As stated previously, South Wexford may have been the home of a Norman Tracey family, referenced in historical records dating from 1280 to 1307, but there does not seem to be any references after this date. It is also possible that the Richard Tracy named was not a Norman, though he is referenced in conjunction with Norman knights. The records state that Richard Tracy held 2 carucats 60 acres (approx 300 acres in total) in Leffeth/Le Fech/Fyth and Polryth/Pollrith/Polrych (two areas that were located near Old Ross) and pays yearly £5.7s.4d. without suit.

The ruins of the Norman castle at Tracystown West, built around 1450 AD as part of a series of defensive castles in south Wexford.

Tracystown East (Baile Uí Threasaigh Thior) and Tracystown West (Baile Uí Threasaigh Thiar, 1654 Trassistowne/Trassestowne), located 3 miles south-east and 2 miles west of Taghmon respectively, may have been either Norman or Gaelic settlements. They are located on the boundary of Bargy barony.

 

Morley at al state “These last townlands may be of Norman origin but references to the Norman Tracys in south Wexford are scarce and they may not have remained in the area. The occurrence of Tracytown as a townland name in an area of Norman settlement may seem to support the Norman attribution of Tracy, but even a cursory examination of Wexford place names shows this reasoning to be unsound”.

 

If Traceystown East is a Gaelic settlement, then Tincurra Church would have been of importance to the Traceys and the Uí Bairrche. It fulfills a number of criteria as an inauguration or óenach/meeting site. 

 

The placename Tincurra (Tincur = marriage portion/settlement) is mostly particular to Wexford and occurs in three locations, in areas with an Uí Bairrche connection.

In two leases dated March 1731 and August 1743, John Tresey of Wexford Yeoman is named as a witness. The areas named are located around Wexford town.

 

In July 1764, James Tracy, Ale Draper [alehouse keeper], of Wexford [town?] was a witness to a pre-marriage settlement between Christopher Jeffares, of Furzeytown [Tacumshin, Forth], and Mary Berry, of Ballykelly [Killiane, Forth?]. Most of the persons mentioned are located in Forth barony, including the Wheelocks (see Ballyrane).

9 January 1839 Wexford Conservative

Wexford Quarter Sessions...It appeared that on Sunday the 26th September 1838, that Donohoe, in going his rounds called to Matthew Treacy's house, rapped at the door at the hour of half-past 9 o'clock of the same evening, and was immediately asmitted; went into the parlor and there found Treacy and mr. P. Whitty sitting together drinking punch, this Donohoe considered a breach of the Act of Partliment, lately made, in which no Publican can sell or allow to be consumed in his house any punch, spirits, ale or wine, beyond the prohibited hour of 8 o'clock on a Sunday evening, under a certain penalty. Treacy was summoned before the Magistrates of petty Sessions, as was Whitty, upon examination it appear that Treacy and Whitty had walked out on the evening of the same day to listen to the band playing, and upon coming home, Treacy had invited his friend Whitty to partake of a glass of punch as a treat; this being sworn to by both, the Magistrates fined him in the mitigated penalty of ten schillings, the fine was paid, but appealed to the sitting Bench and after a tedious and desultory arguement between the Solicitors engaged on both sides, an also the magistrates, the Barrister gave it as his opinion that a legislative body never contemplated, that a publican should be deprived of the rights of hospitality to his friend in his own house, but as it was a question of such vital interest to publicans and the public in general, he would not decide, but would send the case up to the law advisors of the Crown for their ultimate decision.

Wexford Poor Law Union...the Chairman then read the tender of Mr Matthew Tracy of Maudlinstown, to supply the house, according to the advertisement, for three months from Dec 8th at 4½d per stone, and naming as his sureties Messrs Josph Pettit and Mathew Cooney.

The Master said that it was from Mr. Tracy the potatoes were got at present but certainly not at 4½d per stone. They were excellent potatoes.

Some Guardians said that potatoes were selling in the market that day from 2½d to 3d and 3½d at the highest - therefore 4½d was very high.

The Chairman observed there was a risk in the Market as to the quality and there was also another circumstance of which the Board should not be forgetful at present; it was, that if the Master went into the market, he should take ready cash with him for the purpose of purchase, whereas, here, that it not frequired. The funds are low now, and should be attended to.

In the 1877 Local government and taxation of towns report, Mr. Nicholas MacDonnell, Wexford town surveyor, is stated as proposing “to make a sewer of Ninety perches, Irish, in length, from Tracey's to Castle-hill.” Castle Hill Street (now Kevin Barry Street) leads from the Faythe towards South Main Street. Ninety Irish perches are approximately a third of a mile. As such, I presume that [Matthew then Margaret] Tracy’s [public house] was to the south, at the junction of the Faythe and William Street.

It would appear that Wales was not a popular place for the Traceys to emigrate to. Also around that time, Lawrence was not a popular name with the Traceys.

I could not find Lawrence Tracey in the 1871 census in Wales, but his death may have occured in Jan 1877 in Swansea, Glamorganshire. By elimination, I presume that this must be him:

1871 Census England - Widnes, Lancashire
Self  Luke Whitney  M 25 Wexford, Ireland 
Wife  Mary A Whitney  F 30 Wexford, Ireland 
Daughter  Bridget Whitney  F 5 Widnes, Lancashire 
Son  Nickolas Whitney  M 7 Wexford, Ireland 
Lodger  Lawrance Treacy  M 35 Wexford, Ireland

There was a Laurence Tracy born in 1835 in Wexford, (perhaps near Rathangan Parish).

The best match that I have is for perhaps his brother, athough in the 1881 Census there are Traceys from Waterford living in Swansea.

Advice tracing Traceys

Lawrence Tracey was indeed born around 1835-37 and had a younger brother James who married a Catherine. James tragically died in 1879 in Swansea at the age of 32 leaving Catherine with 6 children. Stephen witnessed the accident and the coroners report confirms Stephen is James' son so the information you kindly sent me matches. I also purchased a book called "Little Ireland" about the Irish immigration into Swansea. It briefly mentions the Tracey men, stating they were from Wexford which also tallies with your information so thanks to you - I'm on the right path. I think Margaret Power was born Waterford but I'm still searching for confirmation.

As stated previously, South Wexford may have been the home of a Norman Tracey family, referenced in historical records dating from 1280 to 1307, but there does not seem to be any references after this date. It is also possible that the Richard Tracy named was not a Norman, though he is referenced in conjunction with Norman knights. In 1281, Richard Tracy [also listed as Gracy] was stated to be a representative of Roger le Bigod, Earl of Norfolk and Marshal of England, and was indicated by the Abbot of Dunbrody with having taken away livestock as taxes. The records state that Richard Tracy held 2 carucats 60 acres (approx 300 acres in total) in Leffeth/Le Fech/Fyth and Polryth/Pollrith/Polrych (two areas that were located near Old Ross) and pays yearly £5.7s.4d. without suit. In 1287-8, he is referenced in connection with the ferry.

 

On the 17th June 1495, there was a lease for 59 years between Clement son of William Butler and Donald O’Trassye, for a messuage (fortified house) with a garden and joining the town of Ross, from the Market Street on the south to the common road on the north and in length from Nicholas Britonn’s land on the west to the land of St. Saviour’s on the east. Also Clement has granted to Donald an acre of land outside the same town which lies from the highway on the south to the common land of the north in breath and in length between the King’s Way which leads to Mountgarret on the east to the walls of the town on the west.

It appeared, besides the extortion, that the poor woman had upwards of 16 of her eggs broken, and one of the fowls killed.

Sketches on Irish Highways - Irish Ruins Part 1...from the popular pen of Mrs Hall...We were wending our way to the ruins of the abbey of Dunbrody, leaving behind us the picturesque town of New Ross...

"Do you see that cottage there, ma'am to the left? There used to be a cottage there onc't — though but little else than the walls are in it now — bare and naked walls! and yet I mind when they were roofed, and dacency within them."

"Who lived there?"

 "James Tracey ; — but there's a beautiful place upon the hill"

"Tell me of the cottage, Laggin."

 "God bless you, ma'am dear, you're cruel fond of hearing of cottages ; sure the history of most of them in this country is alike ; — a wedding and little to begin with — a power of children, and little to give them — rack rent for the bit of land, turned out, bag and baggage, for that or the tithe — beggary— starvation-sickness - death! That a poor Irishmans calander, since the world was a world — barrin here and there — now and then — when he gets a sight of good fortune — by mistake "

" But the cabin "

 "Ay — poor James — I mind when he built it himself and the neighbours with him — and the ould landlord was over here, and gave him a promise of renewal of his father's lease, and we wanted James to get the promise in writing, but he put it off — 'twas a way he had— the only fault I ever knew in James — he didn't like to be bothered about what was coming, when he was satisfied with what was come. Well, the ould landlord died, and after that, the young one raised the rint in course, to get all he could to spend away from us ; and then poor James felt the want of a lease, for a dead man's promise is seldom thought of except by those who want to see it fulfilled ; by this time he had a young, heavy family about him, and he dipinded a good deal out of an old bachelor uncle of his dying and leaving him all he had — which was more than would fit in a midges eye — and this hindered him from doing what he otherwiae would have done : but it's ill waiting for dead men's shoes — sorra as much as would pay for a stone of praties did he ever get from that same man. Well, ma'am, gale day came and came and he got time at first, and they do say he could have pulled up, but somehow he had got fixed in the way of putting off, and one thing went to rack and another thing to rack,, and James got a hurt in his back from his horse, which he neglected to fasten in the stable ; and he'd pass the length of a summer day, propped against a post which stood at the gable end of the house, doing nothing only fuming with a neighbour, or keeping the hens out of the cabbages ; and so, in the long run, everything was distrained, and James turned into the road — himself and his children. It ^s little the land- lord got by the distraining, for no one would buy, nor no one would take the land over his head — for a reason they had — until a north-country- man ventured ; and sure it wasn't for want of the warning that himself was shot one harvest night against the very post where James used to stand — if you turn about you can see the spot now, madam, though we're so far from it — there^ against that post — and the house burnt — and three or four in it-and James himself, to crown the matter, and two more, hung for the same!"

"How dreadful! and all originated in the ruinous habit of prcastination"

"Oh sure you're going back entirely to say that, though maybe you're in the right. What's left of the children are scattered through the country with one friend or another — and the poor mother — Christ defend us ! — here she is ! — now for God's sake don't gainsay her— maybe she won't speak— only don't gainsay her — she's wild mad."

 A slight, tall woman had ascended the oppo- site side of the hill from which we were looking down upon the cottage that had been the scene of such a horrid act, and she came upon us so suddenly that the narrative, united to her sin- gular appearance, gave me a shock I shall re- member to my dying day. She wore a petticoat of black stuff, and a short cloak and hood of the same material ; her legs were bare, and her feet thrust into shoes much too large — they were strapped over her instep by leather thongs ; she had on neither cap nor bonnet, and her hair, which once must have been beautiful, hung in grey matted tresses over her bosom ; the hood was thrown back, so that her features were fully exposed — they were low and flat, but the expression of her large, blue, wandering eyes was fierce and fearful ! She advanced, curtseying at every step, towards us — we had been walking up the hill — and though she did not ask charity, I placed a small silver coin in her thin hand.

 Our guide was behind, or rather more to the right than we were, so that the maniac's eye, resting on him, would be led in a direct line to look down upon her once happy home.

"Save ye kindly, this fine morning,'' he said in a kindly tone. She turned quickly, looked at Laggin for a moment, then tossing her arms wildly in the air, uttered a long, loud, and appalling scream — I never before heard such a sound — It reverberated through the air like what one imagines would be the howl of those doomed to eternal agony — and then, as if exhausted by the effort, she sank on her knees on the earth) her right arm extended towards her cottage.

"Leave her alone — she'll come to presently ; there's one of her boys — an innocent — an' he's not far off; he tends and tracks his mother wherever she goes."

The man had hardly finished speaking, when a squalid, ragged youth, of about fifteen, crept from among some underwood — a copse of mingled furze and hawthorn — and without heeding he commenced turning her round. She appeared to have become rigid, for he moved her as though she were a kneeling statue, and having accomplished his purpose, which was to withdraw her from looking towards the ruined cottage, he sat on the earth beside her, staring up into her face with the calm, quiet air of one whose feelings are deadened — yet who once felt. I never saw so affecting a picture of human desolation as that mother and son, in sight of their blasted, ruined home !

On Thursday morning the 5th inst between the hours of three and four o'clock the workshop of Mr Thomas Tracy, coach maker, Ross, was discovered to be on fire, all the exertions possible were used to extinguish the devouring element, which proved fruitless with the exception of a few articles that were saved. We are sorry to have to record such a disgracefule outrage which has been almost unknown in this peaceable town. Some time prior to this a new Gig the property of Mr Tracy, was cut and disfigured. We have no doubt from all we have been able to learn that the above has been the work of an incendiary.

New Ross Petty sessions...An Alleged Sacriliegious Servant. James Hendrick charged James Tracey for unlawfully leaving his service. From the evidence it appeared that Tracey hired with Hendrick last may for 12 months, and on the 8th of August he left, as he said the master's family never stopped calling him names.

Chairman - What names did they call you?

Tracey - Why, sir, they called me everything, and said I'd steal the chalice off the altar.

Hendrick - Never mind him, yer honours, I never heard a word of this before. Another objection, I have to him is, that he won't stay within at night.

Tracey - sure, yer reverence, I can't sleep on the bed I have.

The bench ruled that he go back to his service, or be imprisoned for two months.

The chap though it more advisable to return to his allegiance than trespass on the hospitality of Mr. Gladwin's Palace in Wexford.

James Edward Howlett v. John Tracy

This was an action of trover for the wrongful detention of a car, the property of the plaintiff.

Kate Stafford...governess in Mr. Howlett's family...heard Mrs. Howlett offer Tracy a post-office order for the money that was due, which Tracy declined to accept. He refused to give Mr. Howlett's car, which at that time in his yard. His language was violent, and his manner rude. Witness did not think that he uttered course or rude language. It was past twelve o'clock before Mr. Howletts's family got home from to Ross. A car had to be procured from Ballyhack...Nobody denied that the £4 was due to Tracy. All the things had been sent away. I do not know that there was any money to pay hime. The offer was to send a post office order to Ross.

Bryan Hanlon sworn...I want to Duncannon on the 11th September to bring home Mrs Howlett and family. I unyoked the car, and placed it in the car-house and the horse in the stable. When about to leave the stable was locked, and the car-house was also locked. Tracy said the car must be left unless the bill is paid. I said the money would be sure to him the next day from Ross. He said he would not go to Ross for £20. He claimed £4. I offered him £1, which he refused. I went to Duncannon and tried to get a car, but could not. I afterwards went to Ballyhack, and got a car on which Mrs Howlett and family were taken to Ross...I remember Tracy saying that if he got security for his money that he would allow the car to be taken away. Tracy allowed me to take the mare to Ballyhack to get a car.

James E. Howlett, plaintiff, sworn...The defendant never furnished me with an account, nor made any deman on me for the balance of the account due at 11th September, before that date. My family left Ross on the 11th september. Three or four days after Tracy came into Ross and offered me the car. The car cost me £81 in 1851. Defendant did not offer me the car when I met him about 10th september in Ross. I value the car at the time of its detention by Tracy, at £25...the car was sold in 1853. It was bought by my brother-in-law - I do not know for how much. He made me a present of it. A cheque was given by me to a Mr. Lewis, which was afterwards paid by me when presented by a rate collector. I am not aware that it was dishonoured at the bank; nor do i know whether I had then any assets therein. I was offered the car two days after the money (£) was paid by me in Mr. Boyd's office [defendants solicitor].

John tracy sworn...I am the defendant in this action. I recollect Mr. Howlett and his family coming down in July, and taking my house which contains five bed-rooms, a parlour, and a kitchen. Mr Howlett paid me when I sent in for money, but I had sometimes to ask for it more than once. I supplied Mr Howlett's family with such articles at market price as we could spare. When the two months had expired, Mrs Howlett asked if I was willing to let them have the house for another week on the same terms. i said i was. I did not know that they intended to leave until the car came down. About three or four days after I met Mr Howlett in ross, and proferred him the car if he chose to send for it, as I did not wish to have it in my place. He said he would have had nothing to do with it; that he had put it into Mr. Hinson's hands; that he would not pay the costs I had brough on myself. [Counsel here read a letter from Mr Hinson dated 15th October to tracy, demanding the car and compensation for any loss sustained by Mr Howlett by its detention, and also 10s2d costs incurred.] I cannot recollect the exact day on which I got the letter, but i believe it had been lying at the post office two or three days when I got the £4 in Mr. Boyd's office there was £4.17s11.5d due. I took of the 17s11.5d. the second day after I brought in the car to Ross. Edward cahill was with me. When i left home in the morning I had not been served with a writ nor was I served with it before entering? Ross. I send edward Cahill with the car to Mr Howlett. I had not then been served...When Mrs Howlett asked me for the house for another week, I expected from that that they would go away at the end of the week. I made no demands on him for the hay, because he said he would pay me a fair price for it. I did not help to pack the goods when they were going away on the car. I did not stop them. I asked Mrs Howlett if she was going to send all away without settling with me for what was behind. She said she never was charged for hay in any place she lodged before. I don't remember whether Mrs Howlett said 'I don't know about the charge for hay; Mr Howlett ought to know about the quantity that was got'I don't remember that Mr Howlett said it was a shame for me to keep his children out during the night. He told me my conduct was shameful. I kept the car in a car-house at my own place, till I brought it to Ross on the 22nd of October. I drove in on it. Andy Cahill also came in ot it. Neither myself nor any one else ever set foot on it before that while it was in my posession.

To his Lordship - I am not sure that i got Mr Hinson's letter when I went in to Mr Boyd's office on the 20th.

Edward Cahill sworn...I remember going in to Ross along with Tracy with Mr Howlett car, which I took to Mr Howlett's house, and offered it to a servant of Mr Howletts but Mr Howlett sent a message saying he would have nothing to do with it; that I might put it into any yard i liked. I then put it into Mes Moran's yard. I then went back to the defendant. He was afterwards served with a writ on the same day. I live with Tracy...I don't know the house in which the man served the writ on defendant. I left the horse in the middle of the yard. I did not go into the shop with him and the man, but I saw the laater hand a paper to the former.

...[jury] found the value of the car to be £10; damages for detention of the car 8s...Leave was reserved for the defendant to move in the court above, for a reduction of the £10...The question of costs was reserved for arguement in the upper court...

On the 14th June 1900, Mary Tracey of Clonsharragh Mersheen & Duncannon, purchased  29a/0r/12p from the landlord Baron Templemore, which she had been renting for £21/1/6, for £380, advanced from the Land Commission and she had a £76 cash deposit.

 

On the 16 February 1901, a sad drowning fatality occurred at Waterford on Sunday Night, when a young woman named Bridget Tracey [Bridget Tracy b. 1873], a native of New Ross, was drowned in attempting to rescue her sweetheart, who had fallen into the Suir. Five months later, her body was recovered floating in the Suir at Grace Dieu.

 

Tragic Occurrence in Waterford

On Sunday a melancholy fatality occurred in the River Suir at Waterford, by which a young woman lost her life under extremely distressing circumstances. It appears that shortly after seven o'clock Bridget Tracey, aged about 28 years, employed as a domestic servant by Mr. T.P. O'Meara, Bridge street, left as was usual on Sunday evening to take a walk, and presumably to meet her sweetheart, a young man named John Doyle. Immediately after going out she met Doyle and another young couple on Grattan quay, and the four proceeded in the direction of the Dungarvan Railway station. Doyle left them to go on to one of the hulks. It is conjectured in the darkness he accidentally fell into the river. The others were attracted by the splash and his cries for help, and rushed to ascertain what had happened. Doyle, who was able to swim, suceeded in catching a rope, but in the meantime, the poor girl Tracey became excited and anxious for his safety. The other girl, named Kinahan, caught her by the dress and cautiuoned her to be careful, but in her anxiety Tracey pressed forward, and also fell into the river. There was a strong current running, and in the darkness she soon disappeared, her companions being altogether powerless to render any assisstance. Doyle was rescued, but was naturally in a shocking distressed state. The river has been dragged, but uo to the present the body has not been recovered. The deceased girl was a native of New Ross, and was 13 years in her late employment. She was shortly to have been married to Doyle.
