15th July 1826 The Cambrian

Died. On Wednesday last, at Llandilofawr, Carmarthenshire Mr. Tracey, landlord of the Bear-inn, in that town.

 

19th February 1841 The Welshman

In September last, on board H.M.S. Melville, in his 35th vear, Mr. Henry Tracey, of Llandilo. Mr. Tracey had discharged the duties of Surgeon in the Royal Navy for the last ten years, and during that period he most fully secured the favour of his superior officers, by uniform good conduct; the friendship and esteem of his equals by unvarying amiability, and the possession and exercise of those qualities that adorn the man; whilst his genuine benevolence of disposition, and assiduous attention to all in the hour of sickness, surrounded him with affection and respect. Few men of his years had a larger and warmer circle of friends once made, none were lost. To a dotingly fond parent, and his more immediate relations, his loss is irreparable; whilst all who have known him can, with ourselves, most truly say "take him for all in all, We shall not look upon his like again."

Reference: RCMS 113/98 (former reference: MSS 5)

Creator: Tracey, Henry, d 1840, surgeon

Covering Dates: 1933

Extent and Medium: 1 folder; photograph; Manuscript

Content and context:

Henry Tracey (d. 1840) was born circa 1804, the son of George Tracey (d. 1826), an innkeeper, and his wife Grace, née Pellow (d. 1855). He was baptised in Uffculme Dissenting Chapel, Devon, on 23 October 1806, and spent his early life in Devon and Llandeilo, Carmarthenshire. Tracey was assistant ship's surgeon on, successively, the 'Cadmus', (1831), 'Donegal' (1832), 'San Josef' (1834), 'Pluto', a steam yacht (1835), and 'Malabar' (1836). His last posting was on the 'Melville' (1837), which was involved in the 1st Opium War, 1839-1842. Tracey died unmarried on 25 September 1840 while at sea off Chusan, China Coast.

Twenty-three prints of a notebook, including sketches, describing a visit to South Africa on H.M.S. 'Melville' in 1838.

The prints were taken from originals collected by Dr J.G. Gubbins in 1932 in his attempts to restore the Library of the University of the Witwatersrand, which had been destroyed by fire that year. They were presented to the R.C.S. by the University of the Witwatersrand Library Appeal Committee, 1933.

Threatening An Irish Bankruptcy-Court Official. At the borough police-court on Wednesday, before Messrs R. G. Cullum and H. M. Brewer, magistrates, Thomas Burns master of the ship Ellewater, was summoned for using violent threats towards George Davies. The complainant stated that he was a representative of the Dublin Bankruptcy-court, and had been directed to trace the goods of a bankrupt named Matthew Tracey, ship carpenter, of the same city. On Friday it was sworn before Judge Miller that the money for the purchase of the vessel had been paid by certain creditors; and in pursuance of the warrant produced complainant stated that he came to Newport, and with two men went on board the vessel to take possession on behalf of the court. On Tuesday the complainant and defendant had a conversation, during which the latter said he should go to sea, and the former said if he did he must accompany the vessel. Defendant rejoined that if he did so, he would throw him overboard. This was the threat complained of. Mr Handcock, solicitor, questioned the complainant as to his right to seise the ship, and it appeared from the explanation given by the defence, that although Tracey had induced other persons to pay over money as co-partners in the purchase of the vessel, the purchase had not really been effected. Besides, defendant was one of the present owners, and his threat only went to telling complainant he should have to put him over the side, meaning on to the shore. The bench dismissed the case. Complainant then appealed to the court for protection, but was told that the ship's register showed that it did not belong to Tracey, and that he had no interest in it.

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.

BETHESDA (P.M.). At this church in Glyngwyn-street, Miskin, special sermons were preached on Sunday last by Mr. Herbert Tracey (of Cardiff) to large congregations. This young man's visits are greatly appreciated here. In the morning he gave a beautiful discourse from Hebrews iv., 15, and at night he gave an exposition of Matthew xv., 22-28, which was very fine indeed.

Sabbath Observance. To the Editor. Sir, beg leave to use the columns of your widely circulating paper in order to dispel the false impression created in. the minds of many people by the appearance of my name at the foot of the manifesto on Sabbath Observance recently issued by the Ogmore Valley Churches a copy of which I enclose. Know- ing nothing of the discussions which gave rise to the manifesto, and having no opportunity to state my views oil the points involved, I was greatly surprised to find my name appen- ded to a. document that I had never seen, and of which I had only heard a quite casual men- tion certainly no one had any sanction from me to use my name. With two or three of the propositions in the circular, I am in entire agreement; and I share the desire to see a better condition of things in the valley on the Sabbath Day. But I dissociate myself from this particular statement of what is or is not lawful and ex- pedient to men and women with minds of their own and able to order their lives for themselves. The manifesto passes the limits of tolerance, and I shall be grateful if you will give currency to my repudiation of any connection with it. I am. etc., Herbert Tracey.

Postal Demands. Meeting of all grades at Albert Hall [Swansea]...Mr. Tracey, Cardiff (Sub-Postmaster's Federation) proposed the following resolution: "that. while the Postmaster- General's statement had modified the objectionable clauses of the Holt Committee's report, it does not deal properly with tho admitted increase in the cost of living; it gives nothing to the women and many other classes; it doefi not deal with the attack on Trades Unionism, and other objectionable features of the report. This meeting, therefore, declares in favour of an immediate 15 per cent. increase of wages, and the rejection of other clauses of the report above referred to." Mr. Tracey dealt at length with the grievances of his class, and said that all the conccssions they had received under the Holt report, they had already been given, while many others had been withheld, and fresh work put on them. It was impossible for a sub-postmaster to pay his assistants honestly on the present scale of remuneration. They should stand firmly together, and unitedly press forward their demands.

It would appear that Wales was not a popular place for the Traceys to emigrate to. Also around that time, Lawrence was not a popular name with the Traceys.

I could not find Lawrence Tracey in the 1871 census in Wales, but his death may have occured in Jan 1877 in Swansea, Glamorganshire. By elimination, I presume that this must be him:

Self  Luke Whitney  M 25 Wexford, Ireland 
Wife  Mary A Whitney  F 30 Wexford, Ireland 
Daughter  Bridget Whitney  F 5 Widnes, Lancashire 
Son  Nickolas Whitney  M 7 Wexford, Ireland 
Lodger  Lawrance Treacy  M 35 Wexford, Ireland

There was a Laurence Tracy born in 1835 in Wexford, (perhaps near Rathangan Parish).

The best match that I have is for perhaps his brother, although in the 1881 Census there are Traceys from Waterford living in Swansea.

Advice tracing Traceys

Lawrence Tracey was indeed born around 1835-37 and had a younger brother James who married a Catherine. James tragically died in 1879 in Swansea at the age of 32 leaving Catherine with 6 children. Stephen witnessed the accident and the coroners report confirms Stephen is James' son so the information you kindly sent me matches. I also purchased a book called "Little Ireland" about the Irish immigration into Swansea. It briefly mentions the Tracey men, stating they were from Wexford which also tallies with your information so thanks to you - I'm on the right path. I think Margaret Power was born Waterford but I'm still searching for confirmation.
