Thanks. Do you know what is meant by the abbreviation “Reps.”?

Hi

I've always seen it as representing someone else, such as a deceased person. 

Kind regards

OK. That could work as (probably this) Robert’s (first) wife was a Whelan. Cheers.

Out of curiosity, on the Coolattinlives.ie website, I took a look at the Townsland Tomacork, and entered the name Whelan, to see whether there had been an earlier Whelan here before Robert Rickarby.

Bingo, Emigration Records 1847-56 lists Elizabeth Whelan age 56, Anne 22, Margaret 19, son in law Jno. Rickerby 20, grandchild Hannah 1. 

Again National Library Ref No. MS4974-4975.

Happy hunting.

Right. Well, that is very interesting. Thank you.

I wonder how far Bryce got with this - he started this thread almost a decade ago. I am trying to contact him through another pathway, I'll see if that bears fruit.

I understand the Rickerby's of that time to have been Protestant English and Masons. I am coming to an understanding of how the Coollattin Estate operated in the mid-19th Centrury (the social and economic demographics of that time). Thanks for the coolatinlives.ie link, that will be very informative.

I imagine the departure of so many tenants in the 1850's left a labour void that would have needed to be filled when the land returned to productivity after the Great Hunger.

There were Cahill connections in Coollattin which are intertwined with the Rickerby connections, so I'm unpicking those as I go.

Cheers, Paul

hi all and apologies for the delay. Have been catching up with the info you have added and most interesting. Robert Rickerby was one of my frustrating blockages - I always felt the Coollattin Estate may have held the answer but wasn't sure how to approach it. I'll check your input out first and see what's next. Thanks so much for your help. 
Paul, we recv'd your other message (I assume this was you) but this has disappeared - could you please re-send brief message by same means 

best regards  Bryce

Hi Bryce.

Sent another message per request. Looking at the coolatinlives.ie website there are Rickerbys, Rickaby's and Rickarby's, so one needs to search for all. It would seem logical/probable they would be different spellings of the same wider family grouping.

Kind regards, Paul

Hi

Don't forget to read the Workhouse Records on coolattinlives.ie, remembering the workhouse doubled up as a makeshift hospital.

Happy hunting
