A Constable made an Earl.

A Liverpool police man, named James Tracy, has been elevated to the Irish Peerage, as Earl Tracy. His history is curious. He was born in a peasant's cot in King's county, Ireland. There was a large family of little Tracvs, and a gentleman taking fancy to the boy, gave him a liberal education. He subsequently married a lady of beauty and considerable fortune; but reduced himself by prosecuting the peerage claim, until he. was obliged to seek employment as a policeman. The claim has been decided in his favor, and he is now a peer. His story certain ly contains in abundance the raw materials for a romance.

The recent storm at St Helens, missing body found. The body of Mary Ann TRACEY, aged 15, daughter of Patrick TRACEY, a labourer of Stone St, St Helens was found in the Sankey Brook, near the Havanna Colliery, Parr, on Tuesday night. On the 10th December last, several girls including TRACEY, were picking up cinders from the waste heaps near Baxter's Chemical Works. The girls attempted to cross the swollen Sankey Brook by means of a plank bridge, and all succeeded in doing so with the exception of the deceased, who was blown into the water by the gusty wind, and her body was washed down the stream. Attempts were made to recover the body by the use of grappling irons, but without success. On Tuesday night a workman passing along the side of the brook saw a body "jammed" against the stump of an old tree, and on being got to the side it was found to be that of the missing girl. The body was removed to the Ship Inn, Newton Common, awaiting the inquest.

Abergele..."Tracey" Traced. At a special police court, held on Saturday, before Dr Wolstenholme, Corporal William Tracey, of the 3rd King's Liverpool Regiment, at present located at Warrington, was charged by P.C. Pendlebury with being a deserter from the above regiment. Prisoner pleaded guilty, and was remanded to Ruthin gaol to await an escort.

31st May 1902 Denbighshire Free Press

Abergele Notes...Private William Tracey, of the 3rd King's, Liverpool, may be a crack shot on the battlefield, but he is no great shakes at the game of deserting. On Friday he was walking through Market-street trying to act the innocent, when Police-constable Pendlebury walked up to him, and in a gentlemanly, but convincing manner, told him that he had been looking for him for several days. "What for," queried Tracey. "Come up to the police station, and I will tell you all about it," quoth Pendlebury. "Just my luck," said the unfaithful gentleman in Khaki, I had a presentiment that I was going to be nabbed to-day." Later in the day he was brought up in custody before Dr Wolstenholme charged with being a deserter. He pleaded guilty and was committed to Ruthin gaol to await an escort.

Haunted By A Child's Cry.

Co-Respondent's Passionate Letter Of Penitence.

Pleads To Husband To Forgive His Wife.

In the Divorce Court on Friday, Mr. William Tomkins Tracey, chief steward on one of the liners running between Liverpool and New York, was granted a decree nisi on the ground of the misconduct of his wife, Eleanor Clara with Mr. William Walden, described as a director of Messrs. William Walden and Co., of Liverpool, and against whom damages were assessed at £1000. Respondent was chief stewardess on another steamer.

The marriage took place at New York in October, 1904, and Mrs. Tracy came back to England and went to reside in Liverpool with her husband's mother. Counsel said in consequence of a piece of paper which was put into his hands petitioner went to an address and found respondent. had stayed there during the night and that die had been with co-respondent. Mr. Tracy was fond of his wife and did all he could to bring about a reconciliation. She, however told him practically that she could not return to him because co-respondent had threatened to shoot her if she did so. Co-respondent, continued counsel, wrote a remarkable letter to petitioner. After stating he had done him (Mr. Tracy) great injury, which it would take a lifetime's repentance to wipe out, Mr. Walden proceeded:

"Last Saturday night I arrived at Orrell-lane. While Clara went in I waited outside. About half an hour later, when Clara was leaving to rejoin me I heard a child's voice - your son calling (Mamma, Mamma; in such a plaintive tremor that it went straight to my heart. That child's wailing cry has haunted me ever since. I cannot sleep at night. I cannot attend to my business during the day. It rings constantly m my ears that cry, “Mamma! Mamma!' Your dumb, dignified sorrow touches me. If I was to part from Clara, it would no doubt shorten my life because, I love her to distraction. Yet for the sake of those innocent children I would ask you to take her back. 'Go and see her because she won't come to you. Plead with her for the sake of the children. If you should succeed I promise you as man to man she shall never see me again. If you should fail then I shall have won her by fair means, and I shal1 be happier with her knowing she loves me only."

Petitioner having given evidence the decree nisi was granted and damages assessed as stated.

Liverpool widow’s ashes to be scattered on sunken submarine

A Liverpool family plan to spread their mum’s ashes over the site where the father she never knew is entombed in sunken submarine HMS M2.

Philip Treacy’s body has been sealed for 80 years inside the experimental submarine HMS M2, along with 57 other crew about three miles off Portland, in Dorset.

The surviving families of men killed in the mysterious peacetime submarine disaster now want to sail to the wreck to mark the 80th anniversary of the tragedy.

Philip “Jock” Treacy, who lived at Vronhill Street, in Toxteth, was just 26 when he died on board the HMS M2, which inexplicably sank on January 26, 1932.

He left behind his wife Alice, 25, and their 11-month-old twins Terry and Joan. Tragically Terry died of tuberculosis when he was 12.

Mr Treacy, a leading seaman and torpedo man, was home on leave for Christmas before rejoining the doomed submarine. Mrs Treacy died in 1976, having never re-married.

Her grand-daughter Eileen Glynn, of West Derby, said: “She did not speak much about Philip’s death and I was only a young teenager when she died.”

Joan married Ken Glynn at St Charles Church, Aigburth, in 1952, and Ken still lives in Garston. Joan died last year at the age of 80.

They had three daughters – Angela Roberts, 59, who lives in Speke; Margaret Glynn, 53, who lives in Allerton; and Eileen, 49, who lives in West Derby.

Eileen said: “We found a lot of clippings and photos after my grandmother died. She had letters of sympathy following the press reports of the accident.

“She also had a letter of condolence from someone in the Spanish royal family. My grandfather served in Malta and had his wedding banns read out in a church in Valetta.”

Joan wanted visit the sub’s wreck site where her dad died, but never achieved her wish.

Eileen said: “We plan to go there this year and we thought we should take some of her ashes and spread them over the area where her father is buried at sea.”

HMS M2 was found eight days after it went missing. The submarine incorporated a hangar containing a sea plane and one explanation for the tragedy is that the hangar door was opened too early, flooding the vessel.

The submarine, which sits intact on the seabed, is owned by MoD and protected under legislation as a war grave banning anyone from entering the vessel.

St Patrick's Sick and Burial Society...in July 1849 at which it was proposed to dissolved the society. From the floor, John Treacy, formerly a day laborer in the Irish ordinance survey, voiced his opposition....Under Treacy's entrepreneurial management, the Society enjoyed remarkable growth and commercial success...Within a few years, the society was mired in legal disputes - by 1865 there were six separate actions at law and a chancery suit...'Mister Thrasey'...within the Society the 'principal paerties' were 'all related to Treacy; they were either cousins, or married to nieces, or were brothers-in-law'...Treacy himself was a rags-to-riches role model. Having come to Liverpool as a day-labourer with 'nothing', he confessed in the legal actions to being 'middling': his salary, originally 8 schillings a week, was now £400 per year; he lived in a house built by the Society; had sent two of his daughters to be educated privately in Belgium; own property in Scotland Road (six houses bought for £900 [£800]); and had £1200 [about £1000...4 or 5 houses £200-300] vested in mortgages, while his savings amounted to between £200 and £300 [£100 and £400 other]. His health failed, however, during the course of the legal actions and he died a few months later. 'A perfect martyr to the society', Treacy was revered in death, his legacy being upheld by a corp of relatives, friends, collectors, agents and publicans (including his Fenian brother-in-law, Martin Clarke)...Treacy was an honest man...Treacy, indeed, was a victim of his own sucess...John Baldwin, Treacy's cousin...Patrick Phinn, the Birmingham agent married to Treacy's second cousin..there was a vote of confidence in Tracey ('the meeting decided that Thrasey done roight')...

12 Jan 1866 The Belfast Morning News

Death of Mr John Tracy - The Liverpool Daily post, in announcing the death of Mr J Tracy, secretary and Manager of the St. Patrick Burial Society, says :- "The lamented deceased was no ordinary man. He possessed great original energy, and this energy served to lift him above the humble position which he at first occupied. Being among his class remarkable for a capacity for business, the members of the St. Patrick Burial Society elected him secretary, and the advantage of the choice was soon manifested by a wonderful improvement in the condition of the society, by bringing within its range a larger number of subscribers, the consequences of which was a vast increase of funds. Mr Tracy was a self-educated man, and conscious, as it were, of his honesty, his accounts were not kept with the regularity and precision of a merchant's office. The funds being large, suspicion was aroused as to their safety, and zeal or malice impugned the conduct of the secretary. He defended himself with great energy, and the dispute remained undecided at his untimely death. He has left the society rich in funds."

Sarah Jane Tracey & William Whitford

Elizabeth Ellen Whitford b. 20 May 1870 Clonmel

William Whitford b. 27 May 1872 Clonmel


Whitford and Tracey, Tipperary

William Whitford born 1838 Liverpool, married Dorothea Stewart born 1839 Liverpool, 1859 Liverpool (details obtained).  Have found him1841/51/61 census Liverpool, last one includes their firstborn; between 1860 and 1867 they had 5 children.

My problem is I cannot find him or Dorothea 1871.  Dorothea appears in 1881 and 1901 in Liverpool again; 1881 states her to be "MARRIED", 1901 "WIDOW". She died 1903 in a Liverpool workhouse.  Can't find 1891 for her.

William appears in 1881 in Swansea, Glamorgan, with 2nd "WIFE" Sarah Jane born 1844 Kingston upon Hull, Yorkshire, and 6 children, first two born Clonmel, Tipperary,  middle two Shropshire, last two Swansea, Glamorgan. Found William and Sarah Jane 1891 and 1901 - he died 1906.

I cannot find a marriage in U.K. for William and Sarah Jane. Not found a divorce either.

William was for certain in Liverpool with Dorothea c 1866, then in Clonmel 1870 when his first child with Sarah Jane was born.

Tracey Family - New York, Marriage, Death & Naturalization Records Needed!

Hi All,

Hope someone can help me with this!

The Tracey Family in question are:


William Daniel Tracey b1876/78 Liverpool, Lancs, England & d? Brooklyn, New York, USA

Emily Florence Tracey b14th July 1880, Liverpool, Lancs, England & d? Brooklyn, New York, USA

Colin Gordon Tracey b4th May 1917, Liverpool, Lancs, England & d28th July 1993 New York, USA


William Daniel seems to have travelled across 2 or 3 times between 1918 & 1920 as i have 3 passenger lists for him, Florence & Colin followed in 1925 & i have that passenger list as well.

The 1930 US Census has the 3 of them in Brooklyn, Kings County, NY (Districts 1251-1500), i only have a printed transcription of this one, so don't have an actual address for them!

This is where things get a little tricky!

On a family tree i found, Florence was shown as having died in 1931 in Buffaloe Bay, USA. I have since found Florence on the 1940 US Census & taking out US Naturalization in 1943, so the tree must be wrong unless they were naturalizing ghosts! lol ;D

1940 US Census has them at 2563, East 27th Street, Brooklyn, NY, with William Daniel listed as a Carpenter, Industry shown as Steamship. Florence is shown as Emily Florence aged 59 with no occupation. Colin Gordon is 22 & shown as being a distributor & industry shown as Motion Picture Film Company! I wonder what he did exactly? Colin is also shown as being married but no wife shows up with him. Could sks possibly find a marriage for him probably between 1935 & 1940.

All 3 took out US Naturalisation in 1943, Colin Gordon on 12th Aug 1943 & still at the East 27th Street address, but Florence when she did hers on Dec 16th 1943 was residing 4677 Bedford Ave, Brooklyn, NY. I have the Nauralisation cards for these 2. However i did find one for William Daniel also in 1943 but haven't got the card for him & i don't have the date of it to hand either. If anyone can help with this record it would be appreciated.

Finally the death records of William Daniel & Florence Emily, which i have not been able to locate. both died sometime between 1943 & 1962 when i believe the US social security numbers started. The family tree that had Florence Emily dying in 1931 (which is quite obviously wrong!) also states that William Daniel died in 1953 but doesn't say where. However with one wrong it is quite possible that the other could quite well be wrong as well!

Sorry if this rambles a bit, quite a bit of info fit in!

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards

Hannah Tracey b c1878 [see Dungarvan Waterford]

William Tracey (let me call him William 1) who married Anne Linden. William 1 was a jobbing tailor, who may have died in 1881. Anne Tracy moved with her three children to Liverpool, England where she remarried to a Charles Kelly.

They had a son Michael who married Ellen, who then had two children, Ann and William (William 3rd). William 3 married Sophie. The story about William 3's death is that he was knocked down by a car and buried in Vladivostok! Apparently, the local consulate was involved, but I can find no records. William 3 and Sophie had a son Michael who married someone called Judy.

They also had a son William (William 2nd) who apparently didn't marry. We believe he was a tailor in the Irish Guards.

Anne's daughter, Hannah Tracy, my grandmother, was born in Dungarvin in c1878. She was married on 10 Feb 1901 to John Dunn, who had come over from Forkhill, County Armagh with his 4 brothers (Richard, Matthew, Michael and Hugh) who all became bus drivers (then horse drawn). Her 1901 wedding certificate is attached. John and Hannah had 4 boys and 2 girls. One of the boys was my Dad William (the 4th?). John died in 1928 and Hannah remarried a Patrick McGlade. Hannah died in Liverpool in 1958.

Professor Ian Tracey has had a life-long association with Liverpool Cathedral and its music and, with his two illustrious predecessors, continues the tradition of an almost apostolic succession. He studied organ with Lewis Rust and then with his immediate precursor Dr. Noel Rawsthorne. Studies at Trinity College, London, culminated in Fellowship, after which, scholarship grants enabled him to continue his studies in Paris, with both Andre Isoir and Jean Langlais.


In 1980 he became the youngest Cathedral Organist in the Country, and in 2007 after 27 years service, the Dean & Chapter created the post of ‘Organist Titulaire’, allowing him the freedom to devote more time to playing, lecturing, recording and writing. Since his appointment in 1980, he has played most of the major venues in this country, and an increasing number in Europe; very much in demand in the U.S.A., he has made 23 extensive tours, playing in all the major Cities and in 1999 & 2003 undertook major tours of Southern Australia, recitaling, examining and teaching. The past two seasons have included concerts in New York, Seattle, San Francisco, Bermuda, Paris, Holland, Germany, Jersey & Spain; he returns again to Germany and Holland in 2015.


On the wider musical canvas, he is a frequent broadcaster with the B.B.C., and his recordings on the Cathedral Organ have met with wide acclaim from the critics, recording for E.M.I., CHANDOS and PRIORY. He regularly examines and adjudicates and, over the past 28 years, has conducted over 250 concerts with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra & Chorus. He holds Fellowships from 20 prestigious musical institutions both here and abroad, including the Royal College of Organists, as one of only 28 Honorary Fellows worldwide. In 2006, the University of Liverpool conferred upon him Doctor of Music, in recognition of his long and distinguished service to music in Liverpool and of his national and international reputation. In 2008, the Royal School of Church Music and in 2009, the Guild of Church Musicians, awarded him Fellowships for distinguished services to church music and his international reputation as a church musician. He was commissioned as a Deputy Lieutenant for the County of Merseyside in 2015.


His other posts include: Organist to the City of Liverpool; at St. George's Hall; Chorus Master to the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Society; Guest Director of Music for the BBC Daily Service, Professor, Fellow and Organist at Liverpool, John Moores University, Tonal Director for Makin Organs & Copeman Hart Ltd. and past president of the Incorporated Association of Organists of Great Britain.


His compositions include a Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis (Fauxbourdons) and Responses for Men's voices. He has composed several carols and many descants and arrangements, including a version of the popular football song 'You'll never walk alone' which caught the national imagination at the moving Memorial Service for the victims of the Hillsborough Stadium disaster.


His website is to be found at www.iantracey.com and many of his concerts are also listed on www.organrecitals.com/ian

The Conroys of Lorrha

Eliza (1849) married a John Roach, and appears not to have had children. Eliza seems to have been a stable central figure in the family, taking in her brothers and sisters when they needed help, and witnessing the deaths of her parents. In 1881 she and John Roach were living at 30 Manor Sutton Street, Blackburn, and Eliza’s brother Joseph was living with them. At the 1891 England Census they were living at 13 Myrtle Street, Blackburn along with Joseph and Eliza’s sister Ellen (Conroy) Tracy and her son Peter Tracy and daughter Margaret Mary Tracy. At the time of the 1901 England Census they were still living there, with a Peter Conroy, listed as a brother in law to John Roach, and born c.1862 (presumably Eliza’s brother Peter, born in June 1863).

Ellen (1852) married a Patrick Tracy and had a son Peter (c.1880) and a daughter Margaret Mary (c.1882). In 1881 the family were boarding at 7 Turner St in Blackburn. As already noted, by the time of the 1891 England census Ellen and her children were living with Eliza and John Roach at 13 Myrtle St, Blackburn, and Ellen is recorded as a widow. Living descendants of Peter Tracey were known to be in the Sheffield area in 2011.
