THE CLEARYS OF ANGLESBORO

COUNTY LIMERICK, IRELAND.

The Clearys must surely have been on the Boro Road Anglesboro - just north of Mitchelstown - for some time before Michael Cleary was born in 1801.

Cemetery inscriptions offer some possibilities as to lineage:

Ballylanders

John Clery 1682 - 1740

John Clery (sic) is buried in Ballylanders and died on 21 January 1740. His stone wes set by William Cleary.

Patrick Clary (sic) 1764 - 1821

Patrick Clary died on 8 December 1821 aged 63 years and was buried in Ballylanders. William and Denis Clary of Carrighorum laid the stone. Their brother Larance Cleary (sic) - died 8 January 1841 - is buried there also.

Thomas Cleary 1750 -

Thomas Cleary who buried his wife Bridget in Ballylanders Cemetery - 29 October 1817 aged 60 years - would have been born around 1750.

 

 

Billy Casey - great grandson of Edmund Casey and Margaret Cleary - outside his ancestors Cleary-Casey cabin on the Boro Road, in 2007.

 

Kilbeheny - Brigown

Michael Cleary 1730 - 1794 *

Patrick Cleary 1760 - ? #

Patrick Cleary of Loughan (sic) - was buried in Kilbeheny by his son Thomas Cleary - without dates. But given it his son, John - who lies in the grave - was aged 35 when he died on 2 April 1832 Patrick would have been in the same age bracket as John Cleary of Beehenagh

Mary Cleary 

Hear (sic) under lies the body of Mary Cleary who departed this life the 26th of August 1760 aged 13 years.

The Clearys above could are candidates for parent #- grandparent * of Michael Cleary and his siblings - born circa 1800.

These possible siblings include:

MICHAEL CLEARY

SEE BORO ROAD CLEARYS

 

PATRICK CLEARY - listed in the tithe aplotment book as farming with Michael Cleary on the 39/1/4 acre Cleary field on the Boro Road at Knockma. He married MARY Heally (Hally in some records) and had a number of children, including Margaret ('32), Denis ('34). Patrick held fields in Knockma in his name, also.

One of those, Denis Cleary (b1834), had a small field on the Boro Road with his wife (md 1863) Margaret Hogan. The field was alongside Shaughnessy's and the remains of the house were visible in the 1970s.

Denis' daughter Kate lived there for many years with her brother Michael. Another sister married a Mulcahy from Cork.

Looking towards Anglesboro from atop Knockaceaol. Beyond Tobin's old cabin - in the foreground on the adjoining hill - is Shaughnessy's cottage and Kate Cleary's field on the Boro Road.

 

WILLIAM CLEARY

William Cleary married HONORA O'Brien on 6 March 1832. In 1849 the Land Valuation records for Lackendarragh identified William Cleary as occupying 32/2/1 acres of the 39-acre field previously listed in the Tithe book under the names of Patrick and Michael Cleary. The remaining 6/1/10 acres were in the name of William Cleary and Michael Daly.

Carrigeen and more

William held fields in Carrigeen Mt (25 acres), Upper Behinagh (4 acres) and Kilbehenny (8 acres). Among William's children were Mary ('35), Ellen ('41) and Honora ('45) who was born at Lackendarragh when Michael Cleary was listed as in Brackbaun. This suggests William was on the field at Knockma, in Lackendarragh in 1845.

The Cleary girls!

The following women are among the possibilities as Michael Cleary's sisters:

MARY Cleary married James Danagher on 19 February 1833. It was witnessed by Michael Cleary. Joanna born on 30 April 1843.

MARY Cleary gave birth to an illegitimate child, JAMES, with James Myers on 20 April 1839. Baptism witnessed by Maurice Casey and ? Tobin.
