Residents of a house 5 in Srawic

 

THE IRISH CENSUS FOR 1901 SHRAVOKEE

(SRAWICKEEN)

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.


Thomas Lane (Moloney) - 38 Acres
Thomas Lane (Mulqueeny) - 33 Acres
James Lane  - 23 Acres
Patrick Lane - 31 Acres

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 descendents of this Michael Lane b1788 still  farm at Shravokee on the property listed in the Griffiths Valuation.

We do not know yet the actual relationship between Michael Lane b1788 and the Lanes listed in the Griffiths Valuation.

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 Madden.


There is a headstone in the Lane Cemetery at Teampail near the 1855 Lane Farms listed in the Griffiths Valuation.

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 appears to link the Lanes who held land in the Griffiths Valuation of 1855.
The property which James Lane held after probate passed to his wife Anne Lane (Malone).
Margaret Lane & Mary Anne Lane who came to Australia and married the Gleeson Brothers were Grandchildren.
It is believed this is the farm listed as
House 8 below in the 1901 Census for Srawickeen (Cappavilla, Clare).

The Thomas Lane's listed on the Headstone are believed to be Thomas Lane (Mulqueeney) and Thomas Lane (Moloney) who both occupied farms Shravokee and Mt. O'Donnell in the Griffiths Valuation of 1855.

The Patrick Lane listed is probably Pat Lane of Quinpool.


 


 

This is the Family of the Thomas Lane b1839, who married Mary Ward of Castleconnell on 13th January, 1870.
He was the son of Thomas Lane b1818 and Elizabeth Gleeson and the Grandson of Michael Lane b1788 and Catherine Moloney from whom we are descended. He was a brother of our Michael Lane, b1838 who came to Australia.

Patrick (Pat) and Katie (Catherine) lived on the property for many, many years.

At the time of the 1911 census John Lane was listed as Head of Family with only 3 children living with him. Patrick, Mary and Catherine.

Michael Lane born 11th October, 1887 emigrated to the USA in 1912 and joined his brother Joseph Lane at Brooklyn, in New York.
He married Catherine Tracy about 1920 in New York.


This son Joseph Lane baptised 4th February, 1874 who would have been 27 at the time of this census. He emigrated to the USA.

Thomas Lane baptised  12th January, 1882 who would have been 19 at the time of the census was another son not listed.

John Lane baptised 31st January, 1884 who would have been 17 at the time of the census was another son not listed .

Mary Lane was baptised 9th February, 1876. Sponsors were Patrick Dillon & Elizabeth Lane.

Bridget Lane was baptised 6th January, 1878. Sponsors were Mc Dillon & Bridget Cunningham

Patrick Lane was baptised 28th February, 1879. Sponsors were Patrick Ryan & Mary Fitzgerald.

In 1901 the house was a Class 2 house, brick construction with a thatched roof, 4 rooms and 4 windows in front.
It had a stable 2 cow houses, a calf house, a piggery, a fowl house , a boiling house and a shed.

In 1911 the house was a Class 2 house, brick construction with an iron roof, 6 rooms with 4 windows in front.
The farm had a stable, a cow house, a calf house, a dairy, a piggery, a fowl house, a boiling house and a barn. 

Believe this John Lane was a son of Thomas Lane & Ellen Moloney of Shravokee and a brother to Thomas Lane b1833, Roger Lane b1847 and Margaret Lane b1846 all of whom emigrated to Victoria.
The will of Roger Lane in 1923 left a sum of money to his brother John Lane of Clonlara. This John Lane is the most logical fit when examining the 1911 Irish Census.
