Parish Registers: Quigley Powerscourt/Enniskerry
« on: Thursday 17 May 18 13:05 BST (UK) »
Hi,
Looking for any details of Eleanor QUIGLEY born 1860. Her father was James QUIGLEY - a farmer. The denomination was Church of Ireland.
She moved to Belfast to work as a school teacher (in CoI School) and married Robert CHAMBERS in 1886 in St Thomas's CoI Parish Church. On her marriage certificate she is listed as "Eleanor H Quigley". A death certificate, issued in Belfast in 1912, lists a "Eleanor HILLARD Quigley".
Looking at Griffiths, and other docs, there appear to be several James QUIGLEYS in and around Powerscourt/Enniskerry - but I can't locate a birth certificate for Eleanor.
Any help much appreciated.

Kind regards, Michael

1901

unfortunately some of the Quigley births were registered as unknown

edited to add
The Cullum's son James Francis Edward died 1930 a Marine Officer
His administration was carried by Arthur E Cullum ,Waterville
search here
http://www.nationalarchives.ie/search-the-archives/

His death does not seem to be registered on the civil certs
however Family Search has his death 1930 as just Ireland no specific district
possibly died at sea ?

Dathai -

Well you certainly live up to your name - that was quick and very helpful indeed - go raibh míle maith agat! I will now update the family records with the Enniskerry connection secure.

I saw a Mary Carr in the records but couldn't connect her with James Quigley - presumabley James's father is the (only) tenant farmer with land on the (Viscount) Powercourt estate - as listed in Griffiths. Wife is Eliza(beth) Hicks from Kilmolin (?)

I also notice that the draper's shop - run by Mary Quigley in Enniskerry - has a Wogan family next door but one - not the Wogan family surely!!

Robert Chambers witnessing the wedding of Cullum/Quigley was a big surprise. I wonder why Eleanor (as sister) didn't witness the certificate? Also Robert being there at all is surprising - Down to Wicklow would have been an onerous journey in those days - and speaks of a much closer connection between the Quigleys and Chambers than we had realised. (Perhaps the connection was a victim of partition - certainly the Quigley connection has not been really talked about or recognised - until now).

One other point on this. I notice that the wife of Thomas Quigley (Beresford Buckley) records her father as Allan Buckley - Steward (on marriage cert). The father of Robert Chambers was Joseph Chambers and he was also a Steward - the Chambers family having a number of properties leased from Viscount Londonderry of Mount Stewart fame in Newtownards/Comber, County Down. I wonder if there was some connection here between the Powerscourt and Mount Stewart estates (I know one of the daughters of Viscount Powerscourt married into the Londonderry family around this time...). All a bit vague - but intriguing..

Final point takes me back to Eleanor Quigley. If the 1912 death certificate in Belfast is her (Eleanor Hillard Chambers) I wonder who the Hillard family are - perhaps connected to the Carr family? (The Hillard/Hilliard name has been passed down the generations since).

And the question that really intrigues me... why would a young woman with a secure occupation and large family - living in the "prettiest village in Ireland" - venture north to work in the soot, grime and noise of industrial Belfast. She worked as a school teacher in St Mary Magdalene CoI School on Great Victoria Street and lived in a small terraced house in Fairview Street - opposite the Crumlin Road Gaol. It could not be more removed from leafy Enniskerry.

In later life she moved out of the centre to live on the Antrim Road -  a prosperous part of North Belfast. Robert Chambers became a builder and they had several children - including an Ireland rugby international.

However, many questions remain about how the Quigley and Chambers family became connected.

Many thanks indeed for your help! Kind regards, Michael
