THE IRISH CENSUS FOR 1901 SHRAVOKEE
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
in memory of
who departed this life

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,
