1621? Templepatrick

Mr. Josias Welsh (grandson of John Knox the reformer of Scotland)…came to Templepatrick, in the year 1621 or 1622…At this time, James I, having changed his religious opinions from Presbyterianism, was attempting to enforce Episcopal church government in Scotland…The state of the country, of religion, and the banished Scotch and English ministers, were often the principal topics of their conversation. The captain having an unfavourable opinion of the abilities and conduct of Mr. Tracey, the incumbent, expressed a desire of seeing some sensible, pious man of these divines…In consequence of promising a safe conduct, Mr. Walsh, was introduced to the captain, who was so well please with his conversation, learning and piety, that he engaged him to preach in the temple, the next Lord’s day. Mr. Tracey, being informed of the captain’s intentions, went early to the church on that day, and had begun the service before the captain arrived; but when he entered, he ordered the incumbent out of the desk, and Mr. Walsh into the pulpit…1631 (he was) suspended by the Bishop of Down for non-conformity. (Mr. Welsh died 23rd June 1634 after 12 years in Templepatrick)…From the death of Mr. Walsh in 1634, till the ordination of Mr. Kennedy, in the year 1646, there was an interruption of public worship in Templepatrick…Such were the causes which prevented the puritans from the enjoyment of the beifits of public worship in Templepatrick, from the year 1631, till the ordination of Mr. Kennedy, as pastor of the congregation, in 1646.

Tracy countered by arriving early and starting the service, but when Norton...The next vicar of Coole, Thomas Murray...had been... rector of Ballymartin since 1668, where succeeded Francis Tracy who was instituted by Jeremy Taylor in 1661.

...Rev S.W. Tracy...Corresponding Secretary to the Missionary Society...London...(No.4, Bartlett's Buildings, Holborn)


In announcing the return of Mr. Tracy. we are happy in being enabled to inform our readers, that, in addition to the formation of Auxiliary Societies in the northern counties of Tyrone, Armagh, Down, and Autrim, which we have already announced, Mr. Tracy succeeded in establishing an Auxiliary Missionary Society in the south, for the county of Cork: the Committee of which comprizes some of the most respectable characters in the city, and other parts of the county; among whom are John Anderson, Esq. of Fermoy, 'and W. Roberts, Esq. of Charleville, Bankers; by either of whom subscriptions are received, as well as by the Treasurer, James M‘Mullen, Esq. of Cork.

Mr. Tracy, on his return, begs to express the grateful sense which he entertains ot' the kindness which he experienced in all parts of Ireland from the Clergy and Christians of every church, which has laid him and the Missionary Society under lasting obligations—A hope is indulged, that the union which has at length been formed, under circumstances so auspicious, between the churches in 'England, Scotland, and Ireland, for the propagation of our common faith among the hundreds of millions of the heathen world, will be productive of no inconsiderable benefit to the united empire, as well as the world at large.

[Note: The following family has it’s origins in Berry Pomeroy, Devon, England. John Smith Tracey was the son of Henry Tracey and Honner Smith. His sons are Harry Tracey and John Tracey. John was born in Antigua, and there is a passport for a Harry Tracey stating that he was born in Antigua. However in the 1851 census Harry states that he was born in Antrim. Another Antrim connection is his son Harry Adair Tracey] [see http://traceyclann.com/files/Traceys%20of%20the%20Caribbean.htm]

Title: Charles Clark's Gilliland / Stewart Documents Publication: Charles Clark (charles.clark@xtra.co.nz), 2003 Ballydivity lodged at the Genealogical Office Dublin by James Stewart-Moore (May 1793-23 Dec 1870), and a family tree (descendancy chart) of the Stewarts of Ballintoy drawn around 1928 by John Leslie Stewart-Moore (b. 1891) and held by (among other such institutions) the Coleraine Library.




1869 (6 May) entire addressed to a wine merchant in Bordeaux, bearing 2d. bright blue strip of five, pair and single, all cancelled by “B/1” vertical obliterator (Type K2),

showing red crayon “1/2”, “BERMUDA/PAID” c.d.s. overstruck by “PAID/LIVERPOOL/BR PACKET” (1.7) and Calais entry (2.7) datestamps, circular-framed “PD” in red and, on reverse, London and arrival datestamps. A rare and most attractive franking.


Note: The letter was written by Capt. H.A. Tracey of the Royal Artillery Corps, R.E. Capt. Tracey spent two years on Bermuda, from 1868-1869, in charge of food stores and this letter, written to wine merchant, may well have been for the officer’s mess.

Ann Tracey/Treacy b. Belfast area c1836? m. Thomas Maw in Manchester

Elizabeth b. Ashton (or possibly Belfast)

My 2nd Gt Grandmother was called Ann Tracey and she married my 2nd Gt Grandfather Thomas Maw in Manchester area date unknown, I have searched for a marriage but the only one I can find is for a John Maw to Ann Treacy in 1863 in Ashton Under Lyne, I believe this is their marriage but don't know why John changed his name to Thomas. Ann died in 1881 in Manchester Royal Infirmary but on the 1881 census Thomas & Ann are living in Ashton Under Lyne (again tying in with the marriage I found) and Ann says she was born in Belfast, and my their daughter my Gt Grandmother Elizabeth is stated as being born in Gorton, Manchester in c.1865. Then in 1882 Thomas marries an Elizabeth Tracey in Ashton Under Lyne giving her fathers name as John Tracey. On the 1891 census Elizabeth says she was born in Ashton. I have been trying to sort this mystery out for a few years now and whenever I find some new info it creates another problem to solve. I have searched for the birth of my Gt Grandmother Elizabeth Maw c.1865 in Gorton but can not find her anywhere, the only marriage I can find is that one for John Maw and Ann Treacy, and all I know about Ann Tracey/Treacy is that she was born c.1836 in Belfast and if Elizabeth Tracey was her sister then Ann’s father could be John Tracey/Treacy.

Birth out of wedlock Belfast 1873

My grandfather David Tracey always gave his birth date as 17 Dec 1879. His parents were Thomas Tracey and Mary Jane Evans who were married in July 1880 at St Anne's C of I in Shankill parish. Both were shown as previously unmarried.
I've now found out that David was born as David Evans on 17 Dec 1873, six years earlier than he always claimed. His parents were shown as David Evans and Mary Jane Evans nee Armstrong. The birth was registered by his mother. I've not found a marriage or any other children for this couple so I'm almost certain that Mary Jane Evans was an unmarried mother who invented a husband and the maiden name of Armstrong to avoid registering her son as illegitimate.
This leaves me without a name for David's birth father. I've wondered if the father's name may have been Armstrong, possibly David Armstrong. I realise I'm probably clutching at straws here but would be interested to hear if anyone else has a similar situation where an unmarried mother claimed to be married and used the father's name as her maiden name. Also if anyone thinks this is unlikely I'd be interested to hear why.

frankie-d 27 December 2010

I went down to the LDS FHC yesterday and looked at the film for this birth, the family were in the same street (Boomer St off Divis St) where David jnr was born so David snr and Mary Jane were indeed a genuine couple. Still haven't found a wedding for them.
This leaves the following partial sequence of records for Mary Jane –
May 1877 Gives birth to Thomas Evans (name shown as MJ Evans, formerly Armstrong)
July 1880 Marries Thomas Tracey (name shown as MJ Nevins, previously unmarried, father Henry Nevins)
Dec 1880 Gives birth to Thomas Tracey jnr (name shown as MJ Tracey, formerly Evans)

I think Thomas Evans may have died in infancy, there's no mention of him in family lore and there's a record of a Thomas Evans age 0 who died early 1878 in Belfast. The LDS don't have this on film so I'll have to send off for it.
I can’t find any death cert which fits for David Evans around this time. I’m wondering if he may have just gone away rather than died.
My next question is thus about why MJ would describe herself as Spinster (previously unmarried) on her marriage record. If David had died would there be a stigma attached to being a widow marrying again or does this suggest that David was still alive and the marriage was bigamous? I’d be interested to hear from anyone who has encountered a similar situation.

Ellen Tracey & Hugh Eaton

Hello, I was wondering if you could help me, I was looking at the marriages on the Tracey Clan web page and noticed a marriage of Ellen Tracey 3rd quarter 1898 (1 325) in Belfast, I think this might be my great grandmother. Would the clan have a record of her husband, if it is my great grandmother she married Hugh Eaton. They were married in Belfast but lived in Derry.

Any info would be great. Many thanks.

Flight Sergeant Robert Francis Treacy (1796178) served in the Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve during World War Two. He was the son of Francis Treacy and Bella Treacy of Cliftonville, Belfast, Co. Antrim.

He died on 25th July 1946 aged 22 years old. At the time, he was with RAF 267 Squadron. Robert’s death came as a result of one of the biggest aviation disasters in Burma.

At 1200hrs on 25th July 1946, Douglas Dakota C-47 Skytrain KN585 took off from Yangon Airfield, Burma. As the plane climbed, it entered an area of thunderstorms. In severe turbulence, the left wing broke off the craft causing it to crash into a swamp around 25 miles northeast of Bassein, Burma. All 4 crew members and 18 passengers died in the incident.

Ernest William Sibbald Treacy

My Grandfather was Ernest William Sibbald Treacy was married to Evelyn May Hester (Morris) 25th August 1920 Belfast, Northern Ireland. Some of his family lived in Hollywood, Northern Ireland. Ernest’s Father was from Southern Ireland his name was known as Sam and his wife Elizabeth. But Sam and Elizabeth eloped to Northern Ireland and married and he was a member of the Royal Ulster Constabulary.

I remember him when I was young and I am trying to find out more about his family. I have all the information on his wives and children. I am just trying to find out about his brothers and sisters and where they came from originally in Ireland. I myself was born in Ireland but later and I am living in the USA now.

Ernest was the band leader of Sibbald Treacy’s Rhythm Kings in Northern Ireland and played for the BBC. He also played the piano. I would like to hear from anyone that knew him or may have any of his sheet music. I remember as a child seeing all his sheet music with his picture on the front of it and visiting him when he lived on the Antrim Road in Belfast where there was a plaque outside the front door that read Musical Director Sibbald Treacy Lives or lived here. I am not sure if it is still there or not.

                Guardian newspaper


15 Aug 1930, Radio Times vol. 28 no. 359, p. 365
The afternoon concert on Friday, August 29, will be provided by the Trocadero Sextet, directed by E.W. Sibbald Treacy, and relayed from the Trocadero Restaurant, Portrush. Besides being musical director of the sextet, Mr. Treacy is responsible for the dance band at the Northern Counties Hotel in this County Antrim seaside resort. His interest in dance music began when he visited America eight years ago and came into contact with Schneider’s band in New York and Pennsylvania. Shortly after this he completed a tour through Europe with an American band, and the experience gained in this direction has been made full use of by Mr. Treacy, with the result that his sextet has proved itself the finest café orchestra in the Province. An idea of the strength of the combination can be gleaned from the fact that it contains such artists as Randolph Booth (violoncello), whose solos were at one time a feature of the Regent Cinema, Sheffield; and Jack Glover, who has earned a high reputation in the dance world.
