Residents of a house 5 in Srawic

 

THE IRISH CENSUS FOR 1901 SHRAVOKEE

(SRAWICKEEN, COUNTY CLARE)


We know that the following Lane Families occupied land in the old Town Land of Shravokee at the time of the
Griffiths Valuation in 1855 for Srawickeen.

Thomas Lane (Moloney) - 38 Acres plus House & Office
Thomas Lane (Mulqueeny) - 33 Acres plus House & Office
James Lane  - 23 Acres plus House & Office

The adjacent Town Land of Garraun had the following families occupying land.
Griffiths Valuation in 1855 for Garraun


Patrick Lane & Michael Madden - 21 acres. Land only
John Malone - 18acres plus House & Office.

Working back from records we can trace the family of our grandfather Michael Lane b1838, who arrived in Australia and farmed at Koroit in Victoria, back to Shravokee to his Grandfather, Michael Lane b1788.

Michael Lane b1838 married Ellen Moloney.
Thomas Lane b1818 d1891 married Elizabeth Gleeson.
Michael Lane b1788 married Catherine Moloney.

We do know that a descendents of this Michael Lane b1788 (Noel Madden) still  farms at Shravokee on the property held by Thomas Lane /Moloney listed in the Griffiths Valuation.
DNA testing has proved our relationship to this Thomas Lane/Moloney line.

At the time of the 1901 Census in Ireland there were 6 families living in the Town Land of Shravokee (Srawickeen) of which 3 were Lane Families. The other families being those of John Madden, Patrick Cusack and Bridget Mulqueeny.


There is a headstone in the Lane Cemetery at Teampail which is adjacent to the 1855 Lane Farms listed in the Griffiths Valuation for Srawickeen.

It reads -:

ERECTED BY THOMAS, PATRICK & ANNE LANE
and their COUSIN
THOMAS LANE

in memory of
JAMES LANE
who departed this life
10th February 1855
aged 45 years

This headstone links the Lanes who held land in the Griffiths Valuation of 1855.



The two Thomas Lane's listed on the Headstone are believed to be cousins, Thomas Lane (Mulqueeny) and Thomas Lane (Moloney) who both occupied farms at Shravokee and Mt. O'Donnell at the time of the Griffiths Valuation of 1855.
The location names changed at the time of the Griffiths Valuation to Srawickeen.
The Patrick Lane listed is probably Pat Lane of Quinpool.



It should be noted that Patrick Lane and Michael Madden held land at Garraun, which is the Township adjacent to Shravokee.
Michael Madden of Quinpool married Margaret Malone of Shravokee in 1851.
Anne Lane who was the widow of James Lane, above, was a Malone from Shravokee and most likely a sister.

The holding of James Lane in the Griffiths Valuation of 1855 was previously held by Thomas Lane/Mulqueeny.
It is the property at Mt. O'Donnell at the time of the Tithe in 1824 and The Freeholders of 1829.

We believe that James Lane was a son of Thomas Lane (Mulqueeny).

The property which James Lane, who died  in 1855, held was, after probate, passed to his wife Anne Lane (Malone).

It is believed this is the farm listed as
House 8 below in the 1901 Census for Srawickeen (Cappavilla, Clare) and at the time of the Tithe was noted as Mt. O'Donnell..


Margaret Lane & Mary Anne Lane who came to Australia and married the Gleeson Brothers were Grandchildren of James Lane & Anne Malone.
 


 

The Holdings of properties held by Thomas Lane/Moloney and Thomas Lane/Mulqueeny are referred to in The Tithe Applotment Records of 1824.
The index to Freeholders of 1829.
The Griffiths Valuation of 1855.

The use of the surname Moloney and Mulqueeny after the name Thomas Lane was we believe to differentiate between the two property holders.

By Using the Census 0f 1901 and 1911 we can show the families that descend from both Thomas Lane/Moloney and Thomas Lane/Mulqueeny.

 

 Thomas Lane / Moloney Descendent.

This property we believe is the original Thomas Lane (Moloney) property shown in The Tithe report 1824 and Griffiths Valuation 1855 and handed down to Thomas Lane b1839.
Descendents of the family, The Maddens, still farm it today.

Thomas Lane / Mulqueeny Descendant.

 

Thomas Lane/Ellen Moloney

Whilst very little is known of Thomas Lane & Ellen Moloney we know they lived in Shravokee and had a number of children who emigrated to Australia and the USA.

However newspaper articles in 1874 relating to a serious dispute between a Thomas Lane, his two sons Michael Lane & John Lane and the Dillon Family help us to understand where they fit in to the Lane Families of Shravokee.
The dispute resulted in a Court Case and with subsequent Perjury Charges being laid, which were later withdrawn, and also to the son Michael Lane being sentenced to jail for assault.

Click here for Newspaper Article reporting the Perjury Trial


The son John Lane b1848, reported in the article, as the son of Thomas Lane a farmer in comfortable circumstances, married Honora Dillon of Pallas, Limerick in 1874.
Witnesses at the wedding which took place at Cappamore, Limerick on 10th February, 1872 were Patt. Lane & Honora Dillon.

She was from a well off family and on her marriage her father Patrick Dillon gave his daughter a  300 fortune which was a considerable sum of money in 1874.
After the marriage they settled at Shravokee.

If the son John Lane was born in 1848, it can be assumed his father Thomas Lane was born about 1810, when we consider that Thomas Lane, his brother below, who came to Victoria, was born in 1833.

This Thomas Lane b1810 would have been a son of the Thomas Lane/Mulqueeny shown in the Tithe of 1824, the Freeholders Registry of 1829 and Griffiths Valuation of 1855 due to the fact that being born about 1810 he would not have been old enough to have held land by the time of the Tithe in 1824.
He describes himself in the court case of 1874 as a confused and bothered old man.

 

Following the dispute in 1874 (see below) both Thomas Lane & Ellen Moloney immigrated to the USA.

The Thomas Lane/Moloney family line has a Thomas Lane b1818 who married Elizabeth Gleeson so this Thomas Lane can be eliminated. 


This is the Family of Thomas Lane b1810, of Shravokee, who married
   Ellen Moloney.
There is no record of this family in the 1901 Irish Census.

There are a number of families in Koroit, Australia & USA who are descended from
 Thomas Lane & Ellen Moloney of Shravokee.

The parents of Roger Lane b1847, who died in 1926 at Koroit in Australia, were Thomas Lane & Ellen Moloney of Shravokee.

His will was dated 25th August, 1923  left a number of bequests, including a sum of money to his brother John Lane of Clonlara, County Clare.
He would have been aware when making his will that his brother would have been alive at that time in 1923.

A search of the 1911 Irish Census indicates that there was only four John Lane's in County Clare at that time and only two at Srawickeen which includes Clonlara and Shravokee.

These two John Lane's were both farming at Shravokee, which is close to Clonlara -:

John Lane aged 29, who was a son of Thomas Lane & Mary Ward and therefore too young.
and
John Lane aged 65 who married Hanora Dillon.

Therefore we can say John Lane b1856, who married Hanora Dillon was a son of Thomas Lane & Ellen Moloney.

Click here for copy of Pat Lane's Will.
The will is interesting as it provides for various cousins which in turns ties in the relationships of the various Lane families.
1. To cousins Father Michael Lane, Father Tom Lane and their father John Lane b1879 of Shravokee (Grandchildren of Thomas Lane & Mary Ward.)
2. To cousin Alice Ryan b1899 of Firhill, Parteen (Grandchild of John Lane & Mary Hogan).
    She was the daughter of Michael Lane & Joanna O'Grady and who married Patrick Ryan of Scariff.
3. To cousin Mary Killeen who at present resides in America or her children, he left the balance of his estate.
    She could be Mary, the daughter of Michael Lane & Mary Madden of Firhill, Parteen or perhaps the daughter of John Lane   &   Honora Dillon of Shravokee.

The property after the death of Pat Lane was advertised for sale. 
The Limerick Leader advised the sale was to take place on Friday, 18th April 1967 at 3pm and described the property as a 71 acre farm with a two bedroom house with a slate roof.
Outhouses included 3 column hay barn, 2 store houses, stable for 2 horses, garage etc with a well in the yard.
The lands provide good summer grazing and perpetual meadow lands.
