The Watsons Of Kilconnor County Carlow 1650 Present

by Peter J F Coutts, The Watsons Of Kilconnor County Carlow 1650 Present Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Watsons Of Kilconnor County Carlow 1650 Present books, The book describes the history of a humble family that migrated from England to Ireland in the mid 17th c and put down roots at Kilconnor in County Carlow. By the end of the century many members of the family had joined the Society of Friends and concurrently the family had elevated its social and economic status as it enjoined with the landed gentry. During the late 17th c and 18th c family members left County Carlow and established themselves in other places in Ireland, including Counties Wexford, Tipperary, Dublin, Kildare, Laois and Offaly and later again in England Australia and New Zealand. Diversification in occupation followed, members entering the legal, military, banking and medical professions. Others stayed with the land and were caught up with a fascination for horses, fox hunting, polo and racing in Ireland, England and Australia some members acquiring formidable reputations up to the present day. Family members have, for example, contributed to the growth of theatre and prison reform for juveniles in England, the early banking system in Ireland, the growth of the dairy farming in Victoria, Australia, the fostering of pride and interest in exotic gardens in Ireland, the invention of revolutionary instruments for detecting submarines and the invention of the “backhand stoke” in the sport of polo. To this day the family continues to produce exceptional people whose achievements are memorable. John Watson, now living at Ballybolger in County Carlow, is one such example having represented Ireland recently at Olympic equestrian events.

Rebellion In Kildare 1790 1803

by Liam Chambers, Rebellion In Kildare 1790 1803 Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Rebellion In Kildare 1790 1803 books, The period from 1790 to 1803, one of upheaval and turbulence, has witnessed a surge in historical interest in the past two decades. This study examines the politicisation and rebellion in County Kildare. During the 1790s, a vocal liberal establishment centered on the Duke of Leinster, Catholic and reformist politics, militant Defenderism, and a large United Irish society involving prominent liberals, all of which contributed to the politicisation of the Kildare populace. Against this background a faction loyal to the Dublin government attempted to stabilize and secure the county, with the increasing support of the administration. The 1798 rebellion engulfed Kildare, lasting two months and involving thousands of rebels. After initial success it evolved into a 'fugitive' war centered on the Bog of Allen, where rebels held government forces at bay for weeks. During the post-rebellion period radicalism persisted at a local level and thousands of Kildare men were prepared to participate in 'Emmet's rebellion' in 1803. In examining Kildare in this period the study seeks to contribute to the wider debate on the forces of radicalism and reaction which polarized Irish society in the 1790s. -- Publisher description.
