It may be presumed that the Traceys of Laois are descended from the Uí Bairrche.









The Traceys of Laois can trace their history back to the beginning of historical records, as Laois formed part of the territory of the Uí Bairrche.

Many of the poems are entitled "Rebus" (a king of riddle) or "Enigma", and some are addressed to Eliza Maguire of Peter Street, Dublin. The first 65 pages are original poems, and the remainder are collected songs by various authors, all written in the same hand.

The charge in this case original amounted to £260/17/0 payment of which appears to have been secured by bond by a deed of mortgage dated 29th September 1795 of certain tenants in the town of Mountmellick, in the Queen's county. Richardson, we are informed, is a Bankrupt and that his Assignees are in receipt of the rents of the mortgage premises, which yeild a profit of £40/10/0 per annum. We recommend that the Assignees of the Bankrupt be called upon to pay over the profit rents in discharge of the arrear due to the Crown, and in default thereof that proceedings should be taken to sell the estate.

Tithes - Parsoon Monck and the Parish Priest of Rathdowney

Rathdowney Sep 30, 1834

(From a Correspondent of the Carlow Post.)

The public must be much interested to know the issue of the tithe sale advertised for this day, of the good of the Rev. Mr. Tracy, Parish Priest of Kathdowncy, seized by the sheriff of the Queens County, at the suit ot the Rev Marcus Monck, his neighbour and quondam friend—and, who, if report be true, owed Mr. Tracy an obligation so great, as having once saved him from the gloom of a prison, by satisfying one of his hard-hearted importunate creditors.

About twelve o'clock tho sheriff, in discharge of his duty, proceeded to the residence of the Rev. M. Tracy, accompanied by detachments of miliiaty and police, for the purpose of levying, by setting up to- auction the rev. gentleman's property, the amount of an execution obtained by the Rev. Cormorant of Rathdowney, (parson Monck) — for a claim which was originally but one pound ! ! None but those who witnessed the scene which presented itself, could think it possible that fifteen or twenty thousand men, burning w|lh indignation and a high sense of injury, cuuld have restrained themselves Within tho limits of the Iaw, under causes so exciting. They, however, by their peaceable and orderly demeanour, convinced oven their enemies, that the admirable advice of Mr. O'Connell was not thrown away upon them — for they had determined to break no law, and punctually acted up to this determination.

The sheriffs bailiff now proceeded in the centre of the immense crowd to offer about 1000 kishes of turf for safle, promising it to be of superior quality, and held up as a sample the full of a "ske'eogh" for the inspection of the bidders. He said he would not require any one to bid high — he would thankfully receive the smallest offer. (A death-like silence) — what— is the turf worth nothing, he exclaimod? I say I will take any thing you offer—are there no bidders? Gentlemen, this is a most extraordinary auction. Will no one buy turf, and winter so near ? (All silent). After several appeals of a like nature, ho announced that as them were no bidders for tho turf he would next offer the hay and corn to their consideration. Liko the turf, he praised their quality, &c, but with similar effect. There being no bidder— the cattle were also put up, but with no better success : for tho people wilh the same religious observance a the Jews of old, in not " touching unclean things," would have nothing to do with such unclean beaste as were contaminated by being distrained for tithes. Thus ended this extraordinary drama. The sheriff making a low bow, withdrew, but without informing his numerous audience wtiero tho next farce was to be performed, nor even thanking them for their attendanco.

In the avocations of his sacred ministry he was at every period of his life most zealous and laborious. In the late political struggles for the regeneration of his country he bore a well known, bold and most useful part; and yet the numerous attendance of his Dissenting brethren and who accompanied his remains to the grave afforded ample and satisfactory evidence of the esteem in which his unsullied character was held.

New Catholic Magistrates.—The Lord Chancellor has appointed three Catholic magistrates to the commission of the peace for the Queen's County : Michael J. Byrne, of Bayswell, Joseph Lyons, of Moyana, and John Tracy, of Tennakilly, Esqrs. It is well that, even at the last hour, the Whigs did so much of justice to the Queen's County. They owed the people there more than a little. It would require a great deal to compensate for their continuance of Mr. Schoales as rejecting barrister, despite all re.. monstrance. But why was Mr. P. Lalor pursed over in the appointments to the magisterial bench ? Why, we would also ask, was not Mr. Byrne appointed for the county Kilkenny as well as the Queen's County?

November 18th, 1848 Athy Poor Law Union

Patt Tracey’s wife, of Ballybed [Ballybeg, Co. Laois?], gave evidence in this case, as it was she received the money he being unable to attend. She said she received the first payment on lady-day in May; the first money she got was 2s 6d; this she got only once; the next time she got 3s, and 4s after that, until she was cut to 3s again; her husband received the money once himself, she got less than 3s only once; considers it was in July she was cut off; Mr. Large told her he would not give it to her anymore, unless her husband came, as he said he was able to work. Relieving Officer - Which was it I or Mr. Whelan gave you the 2s 6d.

Witness - It was you; you threw it on the road.

Mr. Whelan - That is quite true. There is no doubt but it was 2s 6d, and it was thrown upon the road.

Patrick Tracy is charged on the Union, according to the Relieving Officer’s published return, for twelve weeks, at 4s each.

...O'Loughlin v.

In 1884 he himself was evicted by the head landlord, for non-payment of rent, and O'Loughlin, his sub-tenant, was evicted at the same time. Subsequently, he got a lease from the head landlord of portion of his original holding and included the house and parcel of land in the occupation of Miss O'Loughlin...[Appeal denied]

...Constable Jas. Treacy, Queen's Co., to Wexford...

Constable Treacy (Clonaslee, Queen's County).HC Deb 07 July 1910 vol 18 c1768 1768

§ Mr. DELANY asked the Chief Secretary whether his attention has been called to the case of Constable [James] Treacy [b. Kilkenny], lately stationed at Clonaslee, Queen's County, against whom it was alleged that on a certain Sunday in October last, when acting as barrack orderly between nine and ten o'clock at night, he stopped two men outside the barracks, and, after procuring drink for them from an adjacent public-house, incited them to smash the bicycle belonging to the sergeant of a neighbouring station and throw it into the river; that on another occasion this constable supplied horns to two young men, prompting them at the same time to sound a local Protestant, lately married, with the object of annoying the sergeant; and that he advised certain persons to feign drunkenness before the sergeant, get arrested, and then go before a doctor and a magistrate and charge the sergeant with unlawful arrest; whether he is aware that evidence of a most reliable character is forthcoming in support of those charges; and will he grant a public sworn inquiry in order that the allegations against this constable may be thoroughly investigated?

§ Mr. REDMOND BARRY My attention has already been drawn to the matters referred to in the question, which were investigated by two experienced police officers some months ago. The Inspector-General then came to the conclusion that the case of Constable Treacy would be sufficiently met by his transfer to another county, as already ordered on other grounds. I see no reason for any further inquiry.

Royal Irish Constabulary (Constable Treacy).HC Deb 13 July 1910 vol 19 cc573-4W 573W

§ Mr. DELANY asked the Chief Secretary whether he can say upon what date Constable Treacy left Clonaslee, and where he is at present stationed; and whether he is engaged in ordinary police duties?

§ Mr. BIRRELL Constable Treacy left Clonaslee on 14th May and is at present stationed at Coolgreaney [Coolgreany Co. Wexford]. He performs ordinary police duties.

Royal Irish Constabulary (Constable Treacy).HC Deb 14 July 1910 vol 19 cc591-2 591

§ Mr. REDDY (for Mr. Delany) asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether he will order a magisterial investigation into the charges preferred against Constable Treacy, lately stationed at Clonaslee, Queen's County, seeing that the evidence of eight independent witnesses is forthcoming charging this constable with incitement to crime and outrage on three distinct occasions?

§ Mr. BIRRELL As the hon. Member has already been informed, this matter has been investigated by two experienced police officers. The constable has been transferred to another county, and I see no reason for any further inquiry.

§ Mr. REDDY (for Mr. Delany) asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether, at the inquiry held on 19th April at Clonaslee, Queen's County, by District-Inspectors O'Connor, Kanturk, and Wallace, Cappawhite, into the charges of incitement to crime and outrage preferred against Constable Treacy, the evidence was taken on oath; and whether he will lay a copy of the report of those two police officers and the minutes of evidence upon the Table of the House?

§ Mr. BIRRELL Evidence was not taken on oath at the inquiry referred to. I do not propose to lay upon the Table of the House a copy of the report of the officers who conducted the inquiry.

Charles Villeneuve is one of the men whose activities in Skagit county commenced in the days when settlers were few and communications difficult. He and Mrs. Villeneuve were the real pioneers of Conway, where they still have interests, though living in Sedro-Woolley and operating the St. Charles hotel in that city. Mr. Villeneuve was born in Ottawa, Carlton county, in the eastern part of the province of Ontario, February 18, 1830. His father, Charles Villeneuve, was a native of Quebec where his ancestry had gone to engage in the fur trade. He took sides with the American revolutionists when the struggles of the colonists commenced with the mother country, and as one result of this, the \'illeneuve estates were forfeited. Mrs. Ann (McKusick) Villeneuve was a native of Ireland. Charles, who was the only son of his parenis, attended school until he was sixteen years of age, and his interests being in common with those of his parents, he continued to reside with them long after he had attained to man's estate, but in 186S, shortly after his marriage, he went to San Francisco, where he passed three years in a sash and door factory, his natural ability with tools supplying in a great measure what he had lacked in experience and training. He finally determinerl to come to the Paget Sound country and boarded the Forest Queen for the trip to Port Gamble, in Kitsap county, reaching his destination after an exciting voyage in which tlie vessel was driven 200 miles to the south of the Golden Gate on the third day out from San Francisco. At Port Gamble Mr. Villeneuve passed two years in a saw-mill, engaged in sawing and tallying, then he went back east and visited his family and friends for six months, returning with his daughters. In the fall of 1873 Mr. Villeneuve came to what is now Skagit county and took up land where now stands the town of Conway. In a few months his family came. On the east side of the river at that time were Big Wilson, Little Wilson, Willard Sartwell, Orin Kincaid and Billy Johnson. During the following summer an Englishman named Marshall started a little trading post across the river where Fir now stands. Marshall had to leave because he was selling whiskey to the Indians, and a Frenchman named Longpre, who became his successor, left after a time for the same reason, but was later caught by the authorities and had to serve a term in prison. The stock of goods was bought by Charles I\Iann early in 1870, and the steamers, which by that time came up the river quite frequently. gave the place the name of Mann's Landing. Further up the river were Joe Lisk, William Caton,  James Abbott and John Wilber, in regular order toward Mount Vernon, all squaw men. Next came Thomas and John Moore with their white w'ives, and Robert Gage and McAlpin came ne.xt after them, all on the west side of the river. To the south was Tom Jones, who came shortly after the Villeneuves. There were no roads, and travel was wholly by boat. Mrs. Villeneuve had preceded Mrs. Tom and Mrs. John Moore, and was thus the first white woman in that section of the county. At that time on the site of Mount Vernon were ^Irs. Jasper Gates, Mrs. Hartson and her mother,  Mrs. Kimljall and Mrs. Ford, the Washburn family not coming till later. In order to get lumber with which to build his house Mr. Villencuve went to Utsalady, on Camano island, made the lumber into a raft and towed it behind his Whitehall boat. The tides greatly hindered progress, and he was four days in making the return trip. The house built from that lumber was the first board structure in this section of the country. A suggestion as to the utter wildness of the country may be gathered from the fact that on the site of Mann's landing was an old Indian burial place and bodies were found wrajipcd in blankets and hung in canoes in the trees, which were removed by the first two traders because they caused so great a stench. Many of the Indians at that time had long fiery red hair.

January 29, 1868 at Ottawa, Ontario, Mr. Villeneuve married Miss B. A. Treacy, daughter of William and Rachael (Dagg) Treacy, who were of Irish descent. Mrs. Villeneuve was born in Ottawa in 1847, the tenth of a family of eleven children. She and Mr. Villeneuve have six children : Mrs. Drusilla T. McGregor ; William Eugene, now in Alaska; Mrs. Ida Emogen Lloyd, wife of John Lloyd ; Charles F. and Joseph Benjamin, both of whom are in British Columbia ; and Cecilia, living at home. In politics Mr. Villeneuve is a Democrat, always active in attending the conventions of that party and prominent in its work. He was postmaster at Conway for eight years, during the last three of which he was a resident of Sedro-Woolley and conducted the post-office through a deputy. When Mr. Villeneuve first settled on the Skagit where Conway now is, he worked in the w'oods and logging camps for a number of years. In 1880 he sold out and went to Snohomish county, taking up a preemption near Stanwood, but on proving up, he came back to Skagit county in 1885. For a year after his return he ran a hotel at Fir. Later he purchased land on the east side of the river hard by Conway and commenced to operate a ferry across the Skagit, also built the first store in Conway and arranged for keeping boarders. When he attempted' to get a post-office located there, he met with opposition from the people of Mann's Landing who looked with displeasure on the rival town across the river. In 1897 Mr. Villeneuve came to Sedro- Woolley and built the Hotel Royal, now the Vendome, the largest hostlery in the city, in the meantime renting out his property in Conway and ultimately selling it. In 1903 Mr. Villeneuve sold the Hotel Royal and built the St. Charles which he continues to operate. In addition to his hotel property he owns seven acres of the town site. During his residence at Conway and in Snohomish county he was justice of the peace ; he was a member of the city council at the time of the consolidation of Sedro and Woolley and is still a member of that body, also is secretary of the Skagit County Pioneer Association. Mrs. Villeneuve, who is deeply interested in education, was the prime mover in the establishment of the first school built on the Skagit river, the lumber for which was brought by boat at half charge owing to Mrs. Villeneuve's individual effort and public spirited action.

Book Titles by Rev William Treacy

Father William Treacy was born in Ballyquaid, Killasmeestia, Borris-in-Ossory, Co. Laois in 1919. In 1932, he left for St. Kieran’s College, Kilkenny, a boarding school 30 miles from his parents’ home. It was during that time that Father Treacy decided to become a priest and in 1937, entered St. Patrick’s Seminary, Maynooth. He was ordained in June 1944. In 1945, while the Second World War was still raging, Father Treacy left for Seattle, Washington to fill a temporary vacancy at St. Alphonsus Church. In 1989, he retired after 50 years of service in Washington State. In addition to his duties within his parishes and interfaith projects, Father Treacy was active in faith-based and service organizations that provide aid to the poor as well as those in spiritual need, both at home and overseas. Today, Father Treacy continues to deliver his message of the importance of service and interfaith communication.


In 1960 Father Treacy was chosen to the Catholic representative to the award winning interfaith television program, Challenge, which had been organized by Rabbi Levine. The program aired for fourteen years. Their friendship sprang from those meetings and together they wrote, Wild Branch on the Olive Tree, a book about their relationship.  Rabbi Levine and Father Treacy were friends for 25 years.


Rev William Treacy founded the '' Treacy - Levine '' Centre in 1968 which is situated at Camp Brotherhood, Camp Brotherhood Road, Mt Vernon, which is hour's drive north of Seattle, USA. Camp Brotherhood is an inclusive interfaith organization that offers facilities for educational, spiritual and experiential programs. It fosters harmony in the human family by inviting dialogue and reaching out to religious, spiritual and secular groups, communities, youth, families and individuals of all abilities. It promotes interaction between racial, ethnic, international and cultural groups, seeking to bring peace and reconciliation by increasing mutual understanding and compassion.

In 2014, at 95 years of age and marking 70th year of ordination, he was honoured at a family-style picnic that also celebrated the retreat’s new name: Treacy Levine Center, in honour of Father Treacy and his friend and co-founder, the late Rabbi Raphael Levine. The centre, which aims to “foster harmony in the human family,” offers retreats, programs and conferences that draw people from the U.S. and other countries. It also highlights veterans’ issues and hosts Marriage Encounter events.










Very Rev. William Tracey (c.1771-1839)

The first chapel of Grogan was thrown down and another built on its foundations, in 1791 by Father Purcell, P.P. The present chapel, the third on the same site, was built by Father Tracey PP., in 1826, around and over its predecessor, which was only taken down when the new edifice had been roofed in. Father Tracey rests here, at the intersection of the nave and north transept, but there is no monument marking his grave. Father William Butler, his predecessor, rests here also, it is said, before the high altar, as one steps from the sanctuary into the nave. A chalice belonging to this chapel has the inscription: - "Collected in Grogan for the use of the parish by the Rev. W. Tracey, 1799."

Very Rev. William Tracey was born at Marymount, parish of Camross, and received at least part of his education in France, where he narrowly escaped the guillotine at the time of the Revolution. He was ordained by Dr. Lanigan about 1796, after which he was C.C. Rathdowney till 1799. His next Curacy was Muckalee, whence he was promoted to the pastorship of Rathdowney in 1802. He became Treasurer of the Diocesan Chapter in 1837. Having governed this parish 37 years, he died at his house in Barrachill, Oct. 7th, 1839 at the age of 68, and is buried in Grogan chapel. Two of his nephews were respected priests of Kildare and Leighlin Diocese, viz., Rev. William Tracey, P.P. Kilcock, and Rev. Felix Tracey, P.P. Ballyna.

In 1890 Crecrin Harps played Graiguecullen in the County Carlow final. The Harps men were beaten by a single point scored between two posts which were beside the goal. Crecrins defender Jim Carthy moved up in attack, Graiguecullen managed to get the ball and sent it over his head and Jim was left stranded. A Graiguecullen man got the ball and with his chance he scored the only point of the match. John Lennon of Knockballystine was captain that day and his team mates were Joe Lennon King’s Cross, William Doyle Coolmanagh ,John and Edward O’Brien Crecrin, Michael and Pat Treacy, Michael Donaghue, Martin Keogh, Pat Murphy, John Sheppard, Jim Kennedy, Charlie Breen, Pat Mulhall The Rock . Patrick O’Neill, Knockeen. Pat and John Bolger , John Condron, Kilquiggan Pat Timmons and Jim ‘Red’ Tyrrell, Killinure , and of course Jim Carthy, Knockballystine. As can be seen football teams had 21 players in those days.

Reverend Joseph Vincent Tracy (1860-1947), DD, b. at Mountmellick, Ireland, 26 August, 1860, son of Edward Tracy, of Cashel, Ireland. Education: at Hawes Hale and Bigelow public schools, Boston; Boston College; Holy Cross College, Worcester (A.B., 1882) ; St. Joseph's Seminary, Troy, N. Y.; St. John's Seminary, Boston. Ordained priest by the Most Rev. John J. Williams, Archbishop of Boston, February 24, 1886. S.T.D. St. Mary's Seminary, Baltimore, 1898; received the title of Missionary Apostolic from Pope Leo XIII, 1903. Spent the earliest years of his priesthood in Florida and Minnesota; [Father Joseph V. Tracy came to Darwin Mn Nov. 21, 1887, formerly of Boston where he had been an in­structor at a boy's school. In addition to the mission at Forest City Father Tracy organized catechism classes in various school districts. Father went east in February 1889, returning July 1893.] in 1889 was assigned to the parish of the Most Precious Blood, Hyde Park, Mass.; teacher of Holy Scripture at St. Mary's Seminary, Baltimore, 1890-88; in 1898 was recalled to Boston to teach the New Testament at St. John's Seminary and act as local director of the Society for the Propagation of the Faith. Through his efforts, branches of this society were organized in more than one hundred parishes and over $84,000 collected for missions within four and a half years. In 1906 he read a paper before the annual meeting of the Arch-bishops, entitled The Catholic Church in the United States, and its mission work, in which a plan for a national mission-support organization covering all mission needs was outlined. Appointed Rector of St. Anthony's Parish, Allston, 1907; Rector of St. Columbian's, Brighton District, Boston, since 1907. Has contributed to the Sacred Heart Review, Catholic World, American Catholic Quarterly, Ecclesiastical Review. Address: Rector, St. Columbkill's, Brighton District, Boston, Mass.

The Health Center was the unique creation of Rev. Joseph V. Tracy, D.D., pastor of Saint Columbkille's [Brighton, Ma], who oversaw the greatest amount of  development in the history of the parish. A 1936 article, citing Monsignor Tracy's Golden Jubilee as a priest, recognized his efforts at Saint Columbkille's in constructing the Institute Building (1917 - 1919), the Convent (1923 - 1924), the Columb House (est. 1923) and the new wing of the school building (1932).  Monsignor Tracy later was responsible for the construction of the present Rectory in 1938. The early 1930’s brought the depression but also saw a fourteen-room addition to our School which was to serve as the present High School.  The High School curriculum, previously a two- or three-year course for girls, now became a four-year regimen.  When the doors of the new High School building opened in September 1932, boys were accepted for the first time.  1938 saw the old Rectory moved to the front of the parish property while the present Rectory was being constructed, the last in the series of Parish buildings.  It was occupied on November 9, 1938, and the old Rectory, built by our first Pastor and added to by our second, disappeared forever.  Monsignor Tracy declined in health in his later years and administrators were appointed to care for parish affairs, first Father Michael J. Norton, and then Father John J. Scollan.  On September 30, 1946 Father William J. Daly, the boy who had graduated from the School in that 1909 Class, officially became Pastor, with Monsignor Tracy being designated Pastor Emeritus.  Father Daly’s most immediate concern was for the care of his old friend and Pastor.  Monsignor Tracy, affectionately known as “The Pastor of Charity,” died on February 12, 1947.

Possible grave: http://www.igp-web.com/laois/memorials.htm


My husband is descended from Andrew Budds, son of Thomas Budds and Catherine Treacy of Timahoe. Andrew (1804-1893) came to Australia in 1832 with his brother William (circa 1800 to 1848) who was probably born at Shradbally. I understand that it was their sister Elizabeth who married Lewis Griffith.
I would love to know more about the Irish family. What was their connection to Richard Budds of Carlow, if any? Why did Andrew call both sons Richard? Why does William's grave state that he was the son of Richard?
Tricia hilder (Buninyong, Australia) lthilder 14 Aug 2009


I am descended from Thomas Budds and Catherine Treacy of Queens County (Laois). Their son Thomas Budds (County Coroner) built Timogue House in the early 1800s.

The names are brilliant as Thomas and Cath Treacey had children: Thomas, Richard, Andrew, William and  John as well as several girls. 

Much of the family moved to Australia in the 1830s.

I have a great deal of information about the family and would be interested in sharing with other descendants.

I would love to know if there is anything about the family left at Timogue House. (Family crest - or anything at all)
