Robert YOUNG, Father and Son, of Ayrshire, Railwaymen.

My grandmother, Janet Howatson YOUNG, emigrated to South Australia in 1912, where she married my grandfather, Peter GORRIE, of Edinburgh, M.D.

[Last known photograph of Janet Howatson GORRIE (left), taken in the weeks leading up to her death in 1936. 
She is with her sister Mrs Janey MACKIE.]

Janet died well before I was born, so I have no knowledge of her other than what I have learned of her from my late mother, and from more recent research that I have conducted into her life.

But I have a great deal of admiration for the way she dealt with the difficulties that life presented her - from her mother's death when Janet was just 5 years of age, the consequent dose of the "wicked step-mother" syndrome, and with a degree of alienation from her father that went with that (she had to put her age up to circumvent him from stopping her from entering the nursing profession, and he disapproved of her going to Australia) - to the rigours of bearing her first child in a relatively "remote" outback location thousands of miles away from her remaining close female relations (including her sister Janey MACKIE in India, and her maternal grandmother Janet Burns Howatson THOMSON then living in Essex ) - to the final indignity of having to see her marriage end in a welter of whisky and wallopings, and packing her pickled and estranged Peter off, back to Scotland, not once, but twice, the second time just months before she died, aged 53, and understandably well nigh exhausted.

I had originally intended this article to be my tribute to her, and dedicated to her memory.
But, as the amount of information is getting a bit unwieldy, I have now decided to publish her story on her own, at this link:
But Janet's origins were in Ayrshire in Scotland, where her father and grandfather both made careers as Railwaymen.

This article will now concentrate on those origins.

And we start at the beginning in Kilwinning, in the YOUNG residence in the Byres, when the newly a-building Railways virtually went past their front door, but with a journey even further back in time.
Her direct ancestors are highlighted in bold type.


Thomas YOUNG was an Agricultural Labourer, residing at Blacklands, in Kilwinning Parish, when he had children born there and baptised in the Kilwinning Parish Kirk, between 1784 and 1788; by 1791, he was living in the Byres, in Kilwinning Town.
His parentage is not yet established, but there are two candidates in Kilwinning Parish records, although naming traditions suggest that neither of them are certainties for our Thomas:
i. Thomas YOUNG, baptised at Kilwinning, 11 June 1751, son of Alexander YOUNG and Ann CUNNINGHAM.
ii. Thomas YOUNG, born in Nethermains, and baptised at Kilwinning on 15 Septemeber 1756, son of George YOUNG and Mary YOUNG.

Thomas YOUNG and Margaret CUNNINGHAM, both of Kilwinning, gave in their names for marriage on Friday 24 January, 1783, and were duly proclaimed in the Kirk, and married there on 14 February following. Margaret was born at Lower Fergusshill, in Kilwinning Parish, on 22 January 1755, a daughter of Robert CUNNINGHAM and Janet FERGUSSON.

No details have yet been found of the deaths of either Thomas or Margaret.

They had issue:
1. Robert YOUNG, born at Blacklands, 13 January 1784. See [A] below.
2. Thomas YOUNG, born at Blacklands, 9 December 1785, and baptised at Kilwinning Kirk, 11 December; evidently died young.
3. Mary YOUNG, born at Blacklands, 13 May 1788 (her mother recorde,evidently in error, as Agnes CUNNINGHAM); perhaps the Mary INNES, aged 60, living with Robert and Thomas YOUNG in the 1841 Census?
4. Janet YOUNG, born at the Byres, 20 January or June 1791, and baptised at Kilwinning Kirk, 3 July.
5. Thomas YOUNG, born at the Byres, 29 November 1793, and baptised at Kilwinning Kirk, 1 December; a Hand Loom Weaver, residing with his brother Robert in the 1841 Census.

Robert was still there in 1851, with his wife Elizabeth, aged 66, a Dressmaker, his brother Thomas, and his two unmarried daughters.

Robert YOUNG, Cotton Weaver, died at Byres Street, Kilwinning, on 23 February 1857, aged 73 (of disease of the Bladder, 19 months), the death informed by his daughter Elizabeth (both his parents named in the Register); he was buried in the Kilwinning Kirkyard.

[Robert YOUNG Senior.]

Robert YOUNG Senior, was born at the Byres, in Kilwinning, in about 1823, the second born but eldest surviving son of Robert YOUNG the elder, and his wife Elizabeth RAMSAY.
Young Robert had already left home before the 1841 Census, when his father enumerated at the Byres, in Kilwinning, recorded as a Handloom Weaver (with wife Elizabeth, brother Thomas, and Robert and Elizabeth's three unmarried daughters.
Also in the Byres was the Kilwinning Railway Station, opened just twelve months earlier, on 23 March 1840, on the Glasgow, Paisley, Kilmarnock and Ayr Railway.

Robert was not at home in 1841; there were eight Robert YOUNGs of near age recorded in Ayrshire in that Census, but it is not possible to identify which, if any, might be our Robert. He may have been in another County.

In about 1845, aged about 22, he was employed by the Glasgow and South Western Railway Company on the permanent way near Kilwinning. In the 1851 Census, he was enumerated back at Byres Street, Kilwinning, as a Rail Layer, with his wife and infant son.
In 1852, Robert was "elevated from the ranks" and appointed Permanent Way Inspector, of the Way and Works Branch, for the Glasgow and Paisley Joint Railway. He moved his family to Paisley.
In 1861, he was at 19 St James's Street, Paisley, Railway Inspector, with his wife and family; and in 1871, he was at 19 Underwood Street, Paisley, Inspector on Railways, again with his wife and family.
Directories record him at 19 Underwood Street, Paisley, 1861-1863, as Foreman, Railway; at 22 Underwood Street, 1865-1866; at 19 Underwood, 1866-1869; and at 19 Underwood Street, 1874, as Railway Overseer.

By 1874, Robert's employer, the Glasgow and Paisley Joint Railway Company had purchased the Glasgow to Kilmarnock line, and due to the heavy increase of traffic on both, decided to appoint a second Inspector, to share the workload. This meant that Robert was "promoted" to take responsibility for the Glasgow, Barrhead and Kilmarnock Joint Railway.

Robert was the guest of honour at a banquet held on 14 November 1874 at the Globe Hotel, Paisley, where he was presented with a clock, a purse of sovereigns, and Mrs YOUNG with a brooch and ring, to mark their transfer from Paisley. The chair of the occasion, Mr William AUCHERLONIE, the Superintendent of Paisley Station, referred to Robert's "... sound judgment and good common sense" and his "... discretion" and noted his faithful service to the Company, the respect and esteem in which he was held by his men, and his quite and unobtrusive worth as a friend. AUCHERLONIE also said of the Glasgow and Paisley Joint Railway that ".. better kept roads and a safer and more complete system of signally is not to be met with any other line in the Kingdom (Applause), and all this had been carried out and constructed under the immediate eye of Mr YOUNG." At the presentation, Mr James NIVEN, of Glasgow, added his own accolades, referring to Robert's "... industry, perseverance and steadiness, combined with a superior intelligence" which had led to his elevation from the ranks to be inspector of way and works, to the "... utmost satisfaction he has given to his employers," and to the "... universal respect and esteem with which he was held by all with whom he came in contact." [Paisley and Renfrewshire Gazette, 14 November 1874].

Robert moved his family to Tetwood House, in Haggs Road, Pollokshaws; he was enumerated there in 1881, Railway Inspector, with his wife, two unmarried daughters, his four younger sons, and a boarder William PATON (Joiner, aged 24, born Dundonald), who may have been his wife's relation; and he was still there in 1891, a widower, with his son.

Robert died at his son's residence, Station Cottage, Beith, on 17 February 1909, aged 86, (of Senile Decay), Railway Inspector Retired, late of Haggs Road, Pollokshaws, informed by his son Robert YOUNG Junior, present at the death.

Harvey WELMAN - An Officer in H.M.'s 57th Regiment of Foot

Harvey WELMAN was born at Tinterne, County Wexford, on 15 August 1782; he was a son of Harvey WELMAN Senior and Margaret LOWCAY.

The information about his life, presented below, began as a section of my earliest posting on this blog-page, in 2007, in the family group headed by Robert PIGOTT, who rose up the ranks of the Excise Department in Wexford, until appointed one of the Inspectors-General of Excise in Dublin, and whose daughter, Abigail PIGOTT, was Harvey WELMAN's first wife.
See -

Robert PIGOTT (c1760-1826) was very likely to have been a first cousin of my greatx3 grandfather, John PIGOTT of Dublin (c1759-1838).
See -

Which is, of course, why Harvey WELMAN's descendants interest me, especially those by his first marriage.

The information here is largely derived from the usual family history sources, including,, British Newspapers 1600-1900 (Gale Group), British Newspaper Archive, Trove newspaper holdings of Australian newspapers, and Papers Past (N.Z.), all of which I have accessed using institutional subscriptions of the State Library of N.S.W. in Macquarie Street, Sydney, and the Library of the Australian Society of Genealogists in Kent Street, Sydney.

Any additional information, or corrections, will be most willingly accepted. I may be contacted at

Chris PIGOTT, Potts Point, N.S.W.

     a. Mary LOWCAY, born 8 January 1701-02, an baptised at St Giles's, Cripplegate, 18 February 1701-02; living in Ireland, 1740-42; went to live in Ireland with her uncle Rev Dr Anthony LOWCAY, about late 1730's; a co-defendant in the CURPHEY v LOWCAY Chancery Court proceedings in Ireland, 1743.

[X] Robert LOWCAY, born on the Isle of Man, about 1659; admitted Pensioner (tutor Mr Henry HALL), 1 June 1679, aged 20; B.A., Verne 1683 [Alumni Dublinensis]; Robert was appointed on 9 July 1691, as Sequestrator to the Impropriate Curacy of Killesk, Diocese of Ferns ["Ferns Clergy and Parishes" Rev James B. LESLIE, Dublin, 1936, page 184]; he was appointed Curate of Fethard, 10 February 1691-92 ["Ferns Clergy..." page 162]; Licenced on 1 May 1701, as Impropriate Curate of the Parishes of Owenduffe, Kinneigh alias Tintern, Clonmines, Kilcownmore, Clongeen and Inch ["Ferns Clergy..." page 174] - in this entry, LESLIE notes that Robert had two sons, Rev Anthony, Rector of Galtrim (probably in error for his brother), and Rev Standish; Robert of Rowstown, County Wexford, Clerk, his will, dated 26 June 1714, and proved in the Prerogative Court of Ireland, 25 October 1714, naming his wife Mary, son Standish, daughters Elizabeth and Mary, daughter Margaret, sons Henry, Anthony and Joseph, and "...brothers Standish L--- and Anthony L---" [BETHAM's Abstract].
Robert is said to have married Margaret STANDISH [information from Croydon LOWCAY, a descendant, and Jane THOMAS, 2017]; if so, she appears to have been his first wife, and they probably had issue:
1. Standish LOWCAY, born at Ross, County Wexford, about 1691; admitted Trinity College, Dublin, 3 April 1707, as a Pensioner (tutor Mr FELL, Ross), aged 15; Scholar 1709, B.A. Vern 1711, M.A. Aest 1714 [Alumni Dublinensis]; named in his father's will, 1714; ordained Deacon on 5 September 1714, Priest on 3 April 1715, appointed 6 September 1714 as Curate of Owenduffe and Tintern, and collated on 15 September 1720 as Prebend of Clone, Diocese of Ferns ["Ferns..." pages 58, 229 and 230]; he was succeeded as Prebend in 1729 by Sutton SYMES; probably dead before 1743, and perhaps as early as 1729. No evidence of any issue.
2. Elizabeth LOWCAY; named in her father's will, 1714; living 1743; married William WILCOCKS, Perukemaker, of Waterford; they had issue:
     a. Rebecca WILLCOX; named in her grandmother's will, 1734.
3. Mary LOWCAY; named in her father's will, 1714.
4. Margaret LOWCAY; named in her father's will, 1714.
5. Henry LOWCAY; named in his father's will, 1714; probably dead before 1743.
6. Anthony LOWCAY. See [W] below.
7. Joseph LOWCAY; named in his father's will, 1714; living 1743. No further mentions in Irish records.
Robert appears to have married secondly, Mary (possibly COLLINS? - although one on-line pedigree identifies her as Mary JOYNER - but this was also, or instead, the name of his paternal grandmother); as Mary LOWCAY, of Rosetown, County Wexford, Widow, her will was dated 15 November 1734, and proved in the Prerogative Court of Ireland, 2 December 1734, naming her grand-daughter Rebecca WILLCOX, her son Joseph LOWCAY, her brother[-in-law] Anthony LOWCAY, and her sister Rebecca COLLINS [BETHAM's Abstracts] - there was no indication of Rebecca's marital status, but if single, COLLINS is likely to have been Mary's maiden surname.

[W] Anthony LOWCAY, born before 1713, and probably well before; named in his father's will, 1714; named by LESLIE ["Ferns Clergy and Parishes"] as Rector of Galtrim, but probably in error for the uncle (there is no entry in Trinity College Admissions for this younger Anthony, and a B.A. from a recognised university was a precondition for Ordination); Anthony (Junior) made a Deed of Release, dated 3 December 1734 [Memorial Number 54740, Volume 78, Page 212, Dublin Deeds Registry] - however, there appear to be some errors in the Memorial, or perhaps a line or two of the original has been skipped by the memorial writer, as it records that the first party to a Tripartite Release was "... Anthony LOWCAY, late of Rosetown, in the County of Wexford, Clerke, deceased and sole Executor and Legatee of Mary LOWCAY his Mother who was the Widow of the said Robert LOWCAY and his sole executrix" - I suspect it was a case of Anthony being alive, and not deceased, although his name appears no-where in the BETHAM Abstract of his mother Mary's will (above), other than as her "brother" - and the use of the word "said" indicates that there had been earlier mention of Robert LOWCAY, who was a Clerk - further, there is no mention of the Lease, and of the tripartite release, only two parties are mentioned, the first, and the other.
Probably (or perhaps instead father of) the next:

Anthony LOWCAY; of Rosetown, County Wexford; on 9 March 1741, he was granted Administration of the effects of his uncle Rev'd Anthony LOWCAY (Senior), of Gaultrim, County Meath [BETHAM's Abstracts]; of Roe's-town, Coroner for County Wexford, November 1750, 1768, and December 1780 [Gentleman's and Citizen's Almanacs, Dublin, 1751, 1769 and 1781].
Anthony died at Rosetown, County Wexford, Esq, shortly before November 1785 [Saunders News Letter, 1 December; Gentleman's Magazine, December 1785]; his will, dated 11 January 1785, was proved in the Prerogative Court of Ireland, 4 February 1786, naming two of his sons and three of his daughters [BETHAM's Abstracts]; if this was Rev Robert LOWCAY's son, he must have been of a very advanced age.
Anthony was married, but the identity of his wife remains elusive; they had issue:
1. Elizabeth LOWCAY, eldest daughter; named in her father's will as Mrs LAWRENSON; she was married at Mount Geal, in August 1773, to John LAWRENSON, of Bawnmore, County Kilkenny [Saunders Newsletter, 30 August], the Deed of Marriage Settlements, dated 27 August 1773, with a marriage portion of £500. BETHAM incorrectly identified her in his Abstract of Anthony's will by inserting, perhaps later, the name of Lucinda.
2. Mary LOWCAY; named in her father's will, 1785; as Mary AGNEW, Widow, she made several deeds dated 2 November 1793, one giving her address as Horetown, County Wexford (perhaps read in error by the Memorial copying clerk for Rosetown?), and demising a large quantity of itemised household goods to her sister Ellinor LOWCAY, Spinster [Memorial 301691, Book 470, Page 240, Dublin Deeds Registry], and the other demising Ellinor the Farm Lett of Rosetown, both of that address [Memorial 301692, Book 472, Page 383]; of Rosetown when she made an Indented Deed dated  4  November 1793, by which she demised the Land of Rosetown to Standish LOWCAY of Portobello, County Wexford  [Memorial 310733, Book 482, Page 33] - the witnesses to all these three deeds dated November 1793 were the same (Michael JACKSON of Portobello, Schoolmaster, and George JURE, of New Ross, Gents); Mary married a Mr AGNEW, who died before 1793.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Mary AGNEW, perhaps the same, was married in 1793, by License of the Diocese of Ferns, to George ROBBINS.
George ROBBINS, of New Ross, County Wexford; his will, dated 26 December 1692, named, among others, his son-in-law William WELMAN, and his two WELMAN grandchildren George and Sarah.
Joseph ROBBINS, of Ballyduffe, County Kilkenny, his will dated 30 November 1724, proved 7 May 1725, named, among others, a son George, and his brother-in-law John FRENCH of Camolin, County Wexford. Standish LOWCAY made a Deed of Assignment, dated 23 May 1803, to George ROBBINS of Rosetown, County Wexford, concerning the Town and Lands of Grange.

3. Ellinor LOWCAY; named in her father'  will, 1785; of Rosetown, November 1793, when named as grantee of household goods, and of the Farm Lett of Rosetown, from her sister Mary AGNEW, Widow.
4. Standish LOWCAY, born at New Ross, Wexford, about 1760; named in his father's will, 1785; probably of Portobello, County Wexford, 4 November 1793 [Memorial 301733, Book 482, Page 33, Deeds Registry, Dublin], when he was demised the Lands of Rosetown by Mary AGNEW, Widow, and the sister of his probable sister Ellinor; Standish was probably the one who died at Fethard, in July 1822 [Dublin Weekly Register, 13 July]; of Rosetown when he was married, probably firstly, in late December 1784 or early January 1785, to the Widow ROGERS of Boderan, County Wexford [Saunders Newsletter, 4 January]; probably married secondly in Dublin, August 1794, Miss Mary ALLEN, niece to the late Rev Dr DOWNES [Saunders Newsletter, 28 August], the marriage settlements mentioned in a deed dated 21 May 1803, of Standish LOWCAY and his wife Mary LOWCAY otherwise ALLEN (to Benjamin ROBERTS of the City of Waterford), in which Mary's father is recorded as Rev William DOWNES of the City of Waterford, and her mother as Ann DOWNES otherwise DEYAS otherwise BOLTON [Memorial Number 369415, Deeds Registry]; issue a daughter:
     a. Ann LOWCAY, the wife of Joseph BRAGG, of Cumberland.
5. Anthony LOWCAY, born in or before 1747; named in his father's will; third party to the Marriage Settlements of his probable sister Ann LOWCAY to Joseph GEALE, 1768.
6. Margaret LOWCAY; named as  daughter WELMAN in her father's will, 1785.
7. Ann LOWCAY; probably born in or before 1750; of Rosetown, County Wexford, Spinster, when she was married to Joseph GEALE, of Mount Geale, County Kilkenny, Esq, by a Deed of Marriage Settlements dated 3 September 1768, he being eldest son of the late John GEALE of the same place (deceased), with  Anthony LOWCAY Junior, of Rosetown, and Thomas TENISON (or JENISON?), of Rock Hall, County Kilkenny, as the third party (the trustees), for a portion of £500, in anticipation of a marriage soon to be had between, and concerning lands in County Kilkenny, with the deed witnessed by Anthony LOWCAY Senior [Memorial 172739, Book 262, Page 391].

Chancery Bill, CURPHEY v LOWCAY, 23 April 1743 [CROSSLE Abstracts, PRONI, digital image viewable on Findmypast].
"Supplicants & dy (?) others Margaret CURPHEY alias LOWCAY & Elizabeth NASH alias LOWCAY both of the Isle of Man, & William WILCOKS of city Waterford, Perukemaker [Wig maker] & Elizabeth WILCOCKS alias LOWCAY his wife.
Shew that your supplicants Margaret CURPHEY & Elizabeth NASH are the only surviving sisters & next of kin of Rev Anthony LOWCAY late of Galtrim County Meath Clerk deceased.
And your supplicants further show said Anthony LOWCAY was in life seized & entitled to a very considerable estate, consisting of horses, mares, cows, sheep, corn in haggard & malt & several sums of money due by bond account & was also possessed of a great deal of ready money & valuable pieces of plate, house-hold goods & all sorts of linen & kitchen utensils & other effects, the particulars whereof were kept so secret your supplicants are not come to knowledge therein, and also to £50 paid to the next incumbent of parish Galtrim for improvements made by ye said Anthony LOWCAY in said parish, which sum was paid or secured to be paid by Mr COPE the present incumbent of said parish, & said Anthony LOWCAY's advance, which effects come in whole to £1,000 & upwards.
"And being so possessed said Anthony LOWCAY on 5 March 1741 [the old Julian dating system, so falling between 31 December 1741 and 25 March 1742] died unmarried & intestate, whereby your supplicants Mary CURPHEY & Elizabeth NASH his sisters became entitled to a 4th part of said Anthony LOWCAY's effects, as also your supplicants William WILCOCKS & Elizabeth his wife became entitled to same or part thereof.
"Your supplicants further shew your supplicants Margaret CURPHEY & Elizabeth NASH (who had the right to have administration of said Anthony LOWCAY's effects granted them as the nearest next-of-kin) living so remote from said Anthony LOWCAY's place of abode & had no knowledge of his death for some time after it happened.
Anthony LOWCAY, of Rosetown in Co Wexford, great nephew of said A.L. deceased and brother to your supplicant Elizabeth WILCOCKS, immediately on death of A.L., by virtue of some power got out of some Ecclesiastical Court in this kingdom, possessed himself of the personal estate of said Anthony LOWCAY the elder but never executed an inventory of same.
And said Anthony LOWCAY. the younger, together with Joseph LOWCAY his brother, & Mary LOWCAY, niece to said Anthony LOWCAY the elder, who lived with said Anthony LOWCAY the elder & was conversant with his affairs, have concealed or converted said goods to their own use.
"Your supplicants further shew said Anthony LOWCAY the elder had no brother living at the time of his decease, nor sisters (other) than the said Margaret CURPHEY & Elizabeth NASH, & no other nephews or nieces than the said Anthony LOWCAY, Joseph LOWCAY, & your supplicant Elizabeth WILCOCKS by one brother, or said Mary LOWCAY by another brother (except the children of said Margaret CURPHEY & Elizabeth NASH).
Your supplicants further shew said Anthony LOWCAY the younger has been often applied to to come to a just distribution of said effects which were over and above the debts of said deceased, which debts your supplicants charge were not above £5, but said Anthony LOWCAY, Joseph LOWCAY & Mary LOWCAY, combining (?) together pretend said Anthony LOWCAY the elder left no personal estate save which was sufficient to pay his debts, which is not true for said Anthony LOWCAY the elder left very considerable estate, and said defendants refuse to accept the same. All which is come to law. Pray for Redress. Entered 23 April 1743."
Here is where CROSSLE inserted his construction of the drop-line pedigree.
"Answer of Mary LOWCAY Spinster to bill of Margaret CURPHEY & others.
"Defendant  saith Rev Doctor Anthony LOWCAY deceased was this defendant's uncle & died unmarried & intestate on 5 March last, & that she resided with him at Gaultrim County Meath at the time he died & several years before, & that she hath perused the schedule annexed to and of Anthony LOWCAY the other defendant, and is convinced said Dr LOWCAY at time of his death had not as many or other effects there set forth, & saith that the silver cups a heavy pan & horse & colt which said Dr LOWCAY deceased were possessions of Anthony LOWCAY the other defendant, and that this defendant had in her uncle's house 2 barrels of pease the defendant's property, & that immediately the said Dr LOWCAY died said Anthony LOWCAY the younger came to his home 3 days after & this defendant gave him the keys & never after meddled with any of said uncle's effects. This Defendant saith she is the only issue of John LOWCAY who was brother to said Anthony LOWCAY.
Answer was sworn at Rowstown County Wexford 5 Nov 1743 before Edmund PEACOCK, Alex ROGERS, Joseph ECLES & John VINSON. Entered 9 December 1743."
"The Answer of Anthony LOWCAY to bill of Margaret CURPHEY & others.
This Defendant saith that all the personal Estate & s'ls(?) of which Rev Anthony LOWCAY died possessed of did not amount to more than £100, & that he hath set forth in a schedule annexed a true account of said estate, & also the value of said effects sold at a public cant, & saith said Dr Anthony LOWCAY had not at time of his death own horses, etc, except one grey mare sold for £3 8s, one bay horse & colt which were the prop' of this defendant, or any corn or cattle or any plate except one silver cup & 2 silver spoons which were also the prop' of this defendant, and had not any ready money at the time of his death but £6 15s & a bank note for £50, & there were no debts due said deceased at the time of his death save as tythe.
"This Defendant sets forth in schedule the debts due from said deceased to this Defendant.
"This Defendant put himself to the trouble of a journey from tis Defendant's house in Wexford to City of Dublin upwards of 60 miles on no other account but to demand from Rev Mr COPE the present incumbent & immediate successor of Rev Anthony LOWCAY in parish of Gaultrim such sum due then Defendant as ad'(?) of said Anthony for Improvements made on said parish, & said COPE absolutely refused to pat this Defendant one farthing. 
"Saith the deceased died intestate on 10 March last, & this Defendant did administer this said uncle in the Prerogative Court & saith he is an entire stranger to complainants Margaret CURPHEY & Elizabeth NASH, & begs leave to ask for proof that they were sister of said Anthony LOWCAY deceased, but doth admit Complainant Elizabeth WILCOCKS is sister of this Defendant, and that the Defendant's father was brother to said Anthony LOWCAY deceased, the issue now being left only said Elizabeth WILCOCKS, Joseph LOWCAY & this Defendant; & this Defendant doth admit other Defendant Mary LOWCAY was only surviving issue of John LOWCAY deceased who was brother to said Anthony LOWCAY, & this Defendant saith said Anthony LOWCAY deceased had another brother Charles who resided in Bridgetown in Island of Barbadoes in the W.I.s, but this Defendant cannot say if said Charles is alive or whether he left issue.
The Defendant doth admit that the other Defendant Mary LOWCAY lived with her uncle said Anthony LOWCAY deceased.
The Defendant denies he referred to [...very hard to decipher a sensible account of this part...] some gentlemen who spoke to this Defendant on their behalf to get them a just account of said goods in case said Margaret & Elizabeth shall prove themselves to be his sisters."
"Signed Antho: LOWCAY at Rowstown County Wexford 5 November 1743. Same was entered 9 December 43.
"The schedule is dated 9 December 1743."
[Further notes here also hard to make sense of] "... debts due to Rev Doctor Anthony LOWCAY... From Mr STEAR £4, from Mr [indec] £2, in list of debts due to Defendant Anthony LOWCAY. To a bay Mare which said Anthony LOWCAY had from this Defendant in 1734 £8. To bay horse which said Doctor had from this Defendant in 1737 £9."

Henry LOWCAY, born in Ireland (possibly in Waterford), about 1740 (and claimed by one family tree on as a son of Standish LOWCAY, but this seems to be unlikely); "... a veteran Warrant Officer who was Master's Mate of the 'Swallow' sloop of war on the voyage discovery of the South Seas in 1766-69, and died on 5 February 1827 at Portsmouth aged 87" ["A Naval Biographical Dictionary," by William O'BYRNE, Volume 1, 1849, page 677]; however, a death notice was published in the Hampshire Chronicle, etc, on 19 February 1827, recording his death, "... last week, at Portsea, aged 87... father of Commander Henry LOWCAY, Lieutenants William, Robert and George LOWCAY"; he was married by License at Plymouth St Andrew, on 3 April 1774, to Peggy GRANT, both of the parish (she was a minor, and had permission from her father John GRANT); they had issue:

J. W. LOWCAY, Lieutenant R.N., died at Portsea, in December 1811 [Bath Chronicle, 20 December].

BURKE's "General Armory," 1885, cites the following pedigree under Arms for LOWCAY:
I. Rev Robert LOWCAY; Rector of St James's Dunbrody and Killesk, Diocese of Ferns; father of:
II. Henry LOWCAY of Kilhile, Esq (and brother of Anthony LOWCAY of Rosetown, Esq); father of:
III. Robert LOWCAY, Esq, Lieutenant, R.N.; father of:
IV. James Money LOWCAY, of Lipson Terrace, Devon, Paymaster, R.N.].
I suspect there is a generation missing in this pedigree, and that Henry (II) may have been a son of Anthony of Rosetown, and grandson of Rev Robert (I).


Harvey WELMAN, born in County Wexford, about 1820; he was residing at 7 Cobden Street, Manchester, in the 1851 Census, aged 30, Agent, Unmarried, with a house-keepeer and two lodgers, none evidently related.

In a Roman Catholic burial ground near Bannow, there were two graves with WELMAN connections, which were transcribed by a Mr HEATHERINGTON in 1974, and published in CANTWELL's "Memorials for the Dead in Ireland", with notes by b.j.c.:

As Harvey WELLMAN appears to have been a Protestant, these burials, one perhaps born as early as the late 1690's, are unlikely to be closely related.


Harvey WELMAN was born at Tinterne, County Wexford, on 15 August 1782; he was aged 20 when he entered the Army on 21 November 1802, as Ensign (by purchase) in the 44th Regiment of Foot; promoted to the rank of Lieutenant, 44th Foot, 18 February 1804, without purchase (vice Ambrose LANE, who was appointed Captain) [London Star, 21 March 1804]; Lieutenant, 9th Regiment of Foot, 28 March 1805, by exchange without difference; he was recorded as Lieutenant, 1st Battalion, 9th Regiment of Foot, at his marriage in Dublin in 1806.

Harvey sailed from Cork, July 1808, to serve in the Peninsular Wars, under Sir Arthur WELLESLEY and Sir John MOORE, in Portugal ;and Spain; he was present at the Battles of Rolica (17 August 1808) and Vimiera (21 August 1808), and at the defence and evacuation retreat from Coruña (16-17 January 1809); he was recorded as being on home service between January and August 1809 (perhaps in Warrington, Lancashire); he served at the Siege of Flushing, Walcheren Island (August 1809), under Lord Chatham; he was promoted to the rank of Captain, 9th Regiment, 2 November 1809, without purchase; he was evidently in Gibraltar, 1810 and in mid 1811; he participated in the Sieges of Tariffa (19 December 1811 - 4 January 1812) and Tarragoña (3 - 11 June 1813), and at the siege and storm of San Sebastian (7 - 25 July and 22 - 31 August 1813); he was awarded Her Majesty's Medal, with four clasps (9th Regimental Awards - for his participation at Roliça, Vimiera, Coruña and San Sebastian).

Harvey was transferred to the 3rd Garrison Battalion, 20 November 1813, vice Captain H. DUMARESQUE who exchanged [Caledonian Mercury, 6 December 1813]; also recorded, under Garrisons, to be Captain of Company, 11 May 1815, from the 1st Garrison Battalion [Edinburgh Gazette, 2-6 June 1815]; he saw further service at the British controlled Islands of Heligoland, off Germany in the North Sea (1815-18); recorded as placed on half pay, 22 September 1816, Captain, 3rd Garrison Battalion ["A List of Officers of the Army, etc," War Office, G.B., 1821, page 626]; however, his Service Record indicates that he was reduced to Half Pay, 3rd Garrison Battalion, 1818, due to the Battalion being disbanded ["British Regimental Registers, 1756-1900"].

Harvey's Service Record also indicates that he served at Home from 1818 until November 1827, nearly 6 years in Enniscorthy, County Wexford; he was evidently back in Ireland (1818, 1819 and 1825), and in Chatham (1825) and Deptford, Kent (1826); he exchanged, from half-pay Captain, 3rd Garrison Battalion, to the 1st Royal Veteran's Battalion, April-May 1824 (vice John LEECH who exchanged); he replied to a glowing testimonial published by a number of his admirers in and around Enniscorthy, amongst whom he had resided nearly 6 years [Westmeath Journal, Thursday 8 July 1824]; appointed Captain, 57th Regiment of Foot, 8 April 1825 [Globe, 21 November 1825], although the later date of 20 November 1830, Augmentation, appears in his Service Record; this Service Record notes his going on Service Abroad on 3 November 1827; on 5 November 1827, he set sail on the convict transport ship Hooghley, 446 tons, Captain REEVES, with a contingent of 99 male prisoners, bound for New South Wales.

The Hooghley arrived in Sydney, direct from London, on 24 February 1828, with Captain WELMAN, of the 57th Regiment, commanding a detachment of 24 men of the Royal Veterans Corps, along with his (second) wife and family (of eight), and another 12 women and 22 children of his troops [The Monitor, Monday 25 February 1828 - as Captain WILLMAN]; he joined other detachments of the 57th which had been accompanying prisoner transportations to N.S.W. from as early as 1819 (including his two soon-to-be sons-in-law, William BENSON and William BATE); WELMAN continued in garrison duty, probably mainly in Sydney (Captain, 57th Regiment of Foot, in September 1829); towards the end of his time in Sydney, he resided at No 12 Kent Street, which was later used by Mrs FISK as a Seminary for Young Ladies [Sydney Gazette, 13 November 1830].

In April 1830, it was reported that 3 sergeants and 60 rank-and-file of the 57th Regiment, under the command of Captain WELMAN, were to proceed to Hobart Town, where they were to be stationed "...for a short period and then go forward to India. Captain WELMAN's departure will be regretted by a large number of respectable acquaintance" [Sydney Gazette, Tuesday 13 April 1830].

On 11 April 1830, WELMAN and his family set sail for Launceston, Van Dieman's Land, in the brig Governor Phillip, with his detachment of the 57th Regiment - but they ran into a howling southerly gale and heavy seas ("stress of weather") which so damaged the ship that she was forced to turn back, and with a jury-rigged replacement rudder, they limped back to safe harbour in Sydney on 2 May - during the gale, WELMAN lost part of his baggage, and Mrs WELMAN "...became extremely debilitated, and had nearly lost the use of her limbs" [The Australian, 6 May 1830]; their second attempt, on 13 May 1830, by the same ship, was successful; his Brevet promotion to the rank of Major, dated 22 July 1830, was connected with the accession of King William IV; from his base in Launceston, in September 1830, he participated in the feeble attempt by government forces to capture "...those hostile tribes of Natives which are daily committing renewed atrocities on the Settlers" in the area between Oyster Bay Range and the River Clyde, south of Lake Crescent, over Table Mountain [Launceston Advertiser, 4 October 1830], referred to in history as "The Black Line"; his earlier orders to join his Regiment in India were stymied once again - "We understand that part of the 57th will remain in Launceston, under the command of Major WELLMAN; the 'Waterloo' not being sufficiently large to accommodate all the men" [Launceston Advertiser, 25 July 1831]; their antipodean respite was to last another 10 months; in March 1832, the detachment of the 63rd lately quartered at Parramatta had been ordered to proceed " Hobart Town, by the 'Norfolk,' to relieve the remaining company of the 57th Regiment at Van Dieman's Land, under Brevet Major WELLMAN, who goes on to Madras, where the strength of the 57th was, by the latest accounts" [The Australian, Friday 16 March 1832]. On 14 April 1832, Brevet-Major WELMAN sailed from Hobart on the ship Norfolk (Captain HENNIKER), bound for Madras, with his wife and eight children (three younger children born in Australia evidently replaced three adults who remained, several already married), and a number of other serving soldiers, mostly from other regiments; he served in India with the 57th Regiment of Foot, from 4 July 1832 until September 1834 - in Madras until March 1834, when they marched in two columns through Bangalore to Cannanore, and were joined there by the camp followers, including the women and children, by the ships Swallow and Isabella, arriving 29 March ["Historical Records of the Fifty-seventh or West Middlesex Regiment of Foot," edited by Lt-Gen H.J. WARRE, London, 1878].

Between September 1834 and August 1836, WELMAN was granted two years leave of absence from his Regiment in Madras, and took his family back to Tasmania; on his return to Launceston in September 1834, his ship, the Duke of Kent, ran aground and was wrecked on the beach at George Town, whereby he lost property to the value of £150 [Launceston Advertiser, 18 September 1834]. 

WELMAN served again in India from August 1836 - at Cannanore, then from April-June 1839 in Trichinopoly, and back through Bangalore (February 1840) to Madras (January 1841), until he was detached from the Regiment in India in July 1841; he retired from the Army on 2 October 1841, after nearly 40 years service (19 years 8 months 12 days service Abroad, and 19 years 2 months Home service).

After his retirement, he returned to settle in Launceston, and there he was re-named as a Justice of the Peace, and actively performed his duties in the Police Court, and the Licensing Courtdied.

He died at his residence in Launceston, on 3 May 1869, aged 86, and was buried in his family plot in Section A, of the Church of England Cemetery.

Harvey may possibly have been the respondent to divorce proceedings brought on in the High Court of Justice, in London, in September 1894, by Ann Louise WELMAN [Cause No 16437]. A notice appeared in the Melbourne Age, 1 September 1894, identifying them as Harry WELLMAN, late of Great Russel Street, Bloomsbury, county of Middlesex, and Ann Louisa WELLMAN of 50 Great Coram Street, Bloomsbury. The publishing of this notice suggests that Harvey or Harry may have come from Melbourne, or may have been heading there.
