The Traceys of Donegal can trace their history back to the beginning of historical records, as Donegal formed part of the territory of the Cenél Eóghain. In Donegal, there is the townland of Carntressy [Carnatressy, Cairnatressy] in Templecarn, 3 kilometers west of Pettigo, named after the Traceys. Carntressy may mean the burial mound of Tracey, a carn is a burial mound of a pile of stones. Another interpretation may indicate that it was a royal inauguration site for the Traceys. Also in Templecarn, is Gortinessy, [Cortnatresse, Gortnessy, Gornanepy, Gortressy] which may also have a Tracey connection.

25 January 1817 (FJ) From an Enniskillen Paper

Last week in the neighbourhood of Ballyshannon, Edward Tracy, a man who, it appears, had served a number of processes for the Quarter Sessions, was forcibly carried off and detained, in order, as it is supposed, to prevent his attendance, and thereby frustrate the ends of justice. This is a novel mode of shewing cause.

15 February 1890 (N) Death

The death is announced of the Rev. Michael Tracey, P.P. V.F., of Dungiven. The senior members of the community in Desertmartin, where he first officiated, and many more of the people of Derry, where he ministered afterwards for about eighteen years, will hear of the event with feelings of unfeigned respect for his memory. Born in the year 1826 in Lower Badony, he became an ecclesiastical student of the Brow of the Hill Seminanry, under the presidency of Father Patrick Campbell. He passed thence with credit to the college of Maynooth. Having served in Desertmartin as curate for some years, the late reverend prelate Dr. Kelly brought him to the City of Derry, where he officiated for about eighteen years. He then appointed him to the important  charge of Dungiven parish about the year 1876. After the death of Father Daniel Magee (who, with Rev. William M'Laughlin, was his colleague in the ministry in Derry City), he succeeded him as Master of Conference of the county Derry Deanery. Under his pastorate in Dungiven, which extended over thirteen years, the new church of St. Patrick was erected cl;ose to the town on the noble site procured by his predecessor, Very Rev. Father Dan Mooney, and of this undoubtedly fine building Father Tracey was justly proud, being heard now and then to put forward its claim to be the second best Catholic Church in this diocese of Derry.

IRELAND—THE SURVEYOR OF INCOME TAX AT DERRY.HC Deb 17 February 1890 vol 341 cc426-7 

§ MR. ARTHUR O'CONNOR (Donegal, E.) I beg to ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is aware that a warrant was lately issued by the surveyor of Income Tax at Londonderry against Mr. John Tracy, of Newtown Cunningham, in Donegal, in respect of Income Tax upon property, but was discharged on evidence that the ownership was not in Mr. Tracy; whether it is a fact that during the discussion the Surveyor asked Mr. Tracy, "Why did you get your name in for a vote on another person's property;" and if he will explain how an electoral franchise concerns the Surveyor of Taxes as such?

§ MR. GOSCHEN An assesment having been made on Mr. Tracy in respect of a holding for which he was rated as owner and occupier, Mr. Tracy explained that he was not the owner. The Surveyor of Income Tax then asked Mr. Tracy whether he was rated for the purposes of obtaining a vote, in order to as certain how his name appeared in the Rate Book when the property was not this,

Edward Tracey, Glenelly Valley, County Tyrone.

1922 Republican Internment and the Prison Ship Argenta

“Lives were complicated in many ways for former internees and their families. Losing his father at the age of four years, one son recalls very little of his father who had been interned. The child’s mother seldom spoke of her husband, Edward Tracey, who had been born in the United States to County Tyrone parents who had emigrated in the nineteenth century. Edward Tracey was quite young when his own father died and he was sent to live with his aunts in Glenelly Valley in County Tyrone. As a teenager, without paternal influence, he sought camaraderie in the South Derry Brigade of the IRA, just over the county border from his residence. Eventually listed and interned, he was to spend a part of his youth as a political prisoner of the Northern Government from 1922 to 1923. His conditional release expelled him from Northern Ireland and forced him to sell the family farm. As a result, he moved to County Donegal in the Free State. Nevertheless, the feelings of abandonment lingered:

Like his counterparts he was offered a commission in the new Army or a post in the police (Gardai); these he both declined because he found both organisations to be of a State which did not respect his political views and a State which sold him and his comrades out and left them to rot in prison.

Frank E. Tracey, son, 1 September 1994 and 19 November 1997 letters, Co. Donegal.

Mark Tracey, grandson, 13 December 1997 letter, Middle East.

“Tracey was offered employment as a porter at the local mental hospital where he provided security from the gate lodge. His family went to live with him there. An early death due to peritonitis may be attributed to his living conditions while interned. Two of his four sons died the following year. Destitute, Susannah (née McCullagh) Tracey face poverty without employment or pension. The intervention of Neill T. Blaney, TD in the Dáil (Parliament) of the Southern Government, allowed her to continue residing with her two remaining young sons in the gate lodge at the hospital as a gatekeeper.

Isabel TRACY born 1819 married Hugh McNulty of County Donegal in 1851. In her 1906 obituary published in an American newspaper it was reported that Isabel was married in the town of her birth - Arderth (sic), County Fermanagh. The information for the obituary was provided by her illiterate son-in-law who was also from County Fermanagh. Have searched church records of western Fermanagh looking for a record of this marriage without success. Could Arderth be a mis-spelling of an official name like Ardgart or Ardess? Or is it a colloquial name that is unrecorded? Suggestions? Tom McCarthy

Michael-Tracey-footballer-009.jpg

 

Michael Tracey (14/2/1935 - 30/5/2014)

 

Tributes are being paid to an ‘extremely talented’ Worksop solicitor and former Tiger’s player who has passed away at the age of 79.

Michael Tracey was born in Lancaster in 1935 and moved to Worksop around thirty years later.

A keen sportsman, he was capped by England as an amateur footballer and won a midland league championship medal with Worksop Town in the mid-60s.

He then changed tack and became head of his own firm of solicitors, named Tracey, Barlow & Furniss, which is still running in Worksop and Retford today.

 

Ian White theguardian.com 9 July 2014

My friend Michael Tracey, who has died at the age of 79, lived a full and satisfying life. A talented footballer, Michael represented England at amateur level in the late 1950s. Leaving Corinthian-Casuals for Crook Town in Co Durham, he scored two goals for the latter in the Amateur Cup final in 1959 at Wembley in their 3-2 victory over Barnet. He then turned professional with Luton Town in the old First Division, but his career was cut short by injury in the early 60s.

Changing tack, he began a career as a solicitor and it was in 1969 that I first came across him in Worksop, Nottinghamshire. His commitment to his clients was renowned, and he was always prepared to go the extra mile, dedicated to the pursuit of justice as an expression of his own strong religious and political convictions.

Michael's life changed dramatically when he, his wife, Kitty, and their 12 children decided to up sticks and move to a smallholding in Roshin, in a remote area of County Donegal, in 1980. "I came to get away from a terrible way of life. I was working sometimes from four in the morning until eight at night to make money I didn't need." To the amazement of the local population, he dedicated himself to living off the land. Although ultimately it proved a somewhat daunting challenge, he remained a dedicated gardener for the rest of his life. He continued to advise many on a range of legal problems on a voluntary basis and was unstinting in his efforts on their behalf.

A proud Lancastrian, Michael was born in Blackburn, the third of five children of Elsie (nee O'Bryan) and George, a chemistry teacher, and educated at Preston Catholic college. [George Tracey married Margaret E O'Bryan 1930 Blackburn, Lancashire, England. Possible children Peter B Tracey 1932, Sheila M Tracey 1933, Michael G Tracey b. 1935, Maureen T Tracey 1937] His Catholic faith was central to his life, although he was a trenchant critic of its failure to live up to the central tenets of the Gospel. This was complemented by his socialism, republicanism and his love of a good argument.

Michael was a man of great integrity, and a true and loyal friend. His latter years were characterised by constant pain and ill-health, which he faced with great equanimity and courage, sustained by the support of his family and friends, and his faith.

Michael is survived by his wife of 53 years, Kitty, their 10 surviving children, John, Alex, George, James, Patrick, Kevin, Kathleen, Mary, Tricia and Siobhan, 26 grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. Three children, Francesca, Dominic and Joseph, predeceased him.
