O'Brien's of Shandrum, Mullagh,

The 1826 Tithe Applotment Books of Kilmurry-Ibrickane for Shandrum & Kilmurry Townland.


Thomas O’Brien                                             3 Acres

Widow of Darby O’Brien                           11 Acres


The townland of Shandrum contains the old village of Kilmurry with an ancient church and graveyard.  Oxmount is a local name to an area on the Northern side of the townland of Shandrum.


The Parish of Kilmurry-Ibrickane has another Tithe Applotment Book from 1834.  After examining this record I found that the townland of Shandrum and Kilmurry is not listed in this record.  This was disappointing to me because I have found important information in other townlands relating to family history within this 9 year period before the famine of 1847 and the movement of so many families from the parish.


There are early baptism records for at least 4 different but which I believe to be related O’Brien families living in Shandrum Townland.  The baptism sponsors and naming patterns of the O’Brien families persuade my thinking along these lines.  This time period in Irish History is difficult to trace the Irish families because of famine and the effect it had on family and farm life in Ireland.  Farms were consolidated at this time by the landlord for profitability and sustainable reasons.  Many Irish families immigrated with assistance from the landlord and with the help of family that had previously made the voyage.  Many of the O’Brien families I have identified in the 1840’s and not found in church or property records after this time.  I assume they died in the famine or immigrated.


One of the family’s is that of Margaret O’Brien Sexton of Clounadrum Townland a neighboring townland to Shandrum.  Margaret Sexton was widowed in the early 1850’s and she gave the farm up and went to Australia to live with her children.  Margaret Sexton’s Australian death record indicates her parents were Jeremiah O’Brien and Mary Corbett.  Jeremiah O’Brien is not a common name in the O’Brien family in this parish but I do find it in the O’Brien’s of Shandrum townland which is next to Clounadrum where Margaret O’Brien Sexton was listed in the 1855 Griffith Valuation.  I can only guess that Margaret O’Brien is originally from Shandrum Townland.


After studying the baptism records for Kilmurry-Ibrickane Parish I have found sponsors for children that indicate that there are relationships between the various O’Brien families.  Jeremiah and Mary O’Brien are noted with residence in at least two O’Brien families in Shandrum.


I have linked the families together in a genealogical family tree program to show the relationships.  I do not have and documentation at this time to verify these relationships but hope to find descendant families that will read this blog and recognize their O’Brien ancestors and help me fill in the pieces of the O’Brien puzzle.


The information listed here is taken from the baptismal and marriage registers of Kilmurry-Ibrickane parish and the property records from County Clare.  I apologize to anyone that I may offend with my approach to this problem of linking families without documentation and I look forward to anyone that can claim and document any family or individual in this townland.

Notes for Martin O'Brien: Kevin,

Apologies, you were right! the Martin O Brien I was querying was married and and that was his family (picture u send) I was talking to my brother and was very definite about who he was. The poor man threw himself into the Fergus river in Ennis. He was quite a character and and used to make up poems/songs about local happenings. I have a few lines of a famous one but have to fill you in on the background. This happened in Kildimo, Apparently, he took a wheel off Joe Downes cart and hid it in the reek of turf and Joe could not go to the bog without his wheel so pandemonium broke out in Kildimo so he writes a little ditty on it and one verse of it goes like this.

'Now dear Joe, away you go, your wheel is very near you When taking out dont make no noise or Sean Eoin will hear you

Well the devil may blast you says Paddy Sexton, tis surely Paddy they'l blame Dar Kit says Doctor isent it a crying shame

Jasus says Clery tis surely thrown in a ditch'

Anyway that is all I have right now.... By the way a John O Brien from Annagh aged

89 a cousin of Dads died during the week. His father was Peter O Brien and father's first wife died ? who she was and then he married Bridget Sexton from Ahy Bridge, i dont think they had any children. As far as I know there were two boys John and Peter from first wife, an uncle of mine was also reared there. To answer your query re Martin from Ballymakea Beg the fact that he was an agricultural labourer meant that he had no land, I was asking my brother about him he dident know . Interesting that Margaret O Brien married a Downes from Kilmihil, my great grandmother was Downes from Kilmihil!! This is a rambling email so I better let it go before I start something else.

Teresa Sexton Kevin,

When I was growing up, there was no TV no electricity for that matter. I think we got the electricity when I was 10/11. I was born 1951. We got a TV when I was 12 just in time to see JFK's funeral. Up until that time, people visited each other at night almost every night ( I remember the question would always be asked 'who did ye have last night?') When they visited if we were saying the rosary they knelt down and said their decade. Then after that the story telling began and they always talked about people who made a difference to their lives. Invariably Martin O Brien came up over and over again and some one would recite that poem and as a child we got a feel through them what he was like and we got to know that poem ( like a kid gets to know an ad today). Additionally, that poem was specifically about Kildimo and we knew all the characters and what they might say and it fitted! My brother just reminded me of it, mind you I was surprised that he knew it he is 10 years younger than I am but he has great recall and knows alot more than I do. You will have to meet up with him I think he would fill in some spaces for you, that is of course if he was sober! I never heard that we were related to him but that doesnt mean a whole lot. My mom used to work with him and thought he was a gent. Yes Burkes bought


the house for 140 pounds from the Co Council after he died. It is near Cunnighams and Kenneallys on the left hand side of the road. Tomsy died a few years ago I dont think anyone lives there now, Paddy who is Tomsy's brother has a house next door.

T
Another line from that poem ' Jim Hurley says devil may sweep him, he is a damn son of a bitch' Jim Hurley was also a cousin of ours on the Downes side. Yeh I agree Kevin, times have changed so so much. I believe that technology replaced the human contact, in a way our ancestors were very rich in that aspect while very poor in other aspects. Anyway, I am going to visit my friend around the corner now. By the way visiting houses in the 50sand 60s was known as going on 'cuaird' an irish word for visiting. My Da had to go on cuaird every night to Mick Downes at 9 pm regardless of who was on cuaird at our house.......what were they like???

  5. Hello, I did noticed at date for this post but I found it via Google. I am a descendant of O'Briens and Gleesons from the Doonass area of Clare. So, my 3rd great grandparents were Edmund O'Brien and Ann Gleeson both born approximately 1811-12. Their children were baptized in Castleconnell but they lived in Doonass. Ann's parents were Cornel Gleeson and Margaret O'Driscoll. Probably a shot in the dark contacting you since these last names are so common but I do know who my specific ancestors are and am wondering if there is any connection to yours. I do not have Edmund O'Brien's parents names...At least not yet...working on that. My email is kristin@zelsersk.net. I live in California but have a number for O'Brien distant relatives in Australia and New Zealand as that is where the O'Brien's fled during the 1850s. Cheers!
