    Public

    JOHN LEAHY AND FAMILY -
    John Sample (Semple) Leahy c1810 (likely born at Town Plots Townland, Kinsale or Dromderrig Townland, Kinsale) and his wife Ellen McCarthy c1813 (likely born Kinsale) were married on 23rd April, 1831 in Kinsale (RC), County of Cork, Ireland. Their witnesses were James White and Cath McCarthy (the latter person is obviously a close family member). My belief is that John's father was John Leahy c1780 an Architect, and his mother was Ann (Semple ?) c1782 (one record so far about John's parents being John an Architect, and Ann) and her surname could have been Sample or Semple.

    KINSALE LOYALTY PETITION -
    The 1792 Kinsale, Cork 'Loyalty Petition' to John, Earl of Westmoreland dated 2nd December, 1792; lists both a Richard Leahy and a John Leahy and the John could quite easily have been John Sample Leahy's grandfather, with Richard being a close family member? Ref for the Petition - http://homepage.tinet.ie/~jbhall/1792_kinsale_petition.htm

    ANNALS OF KINSALE -
    In 1796 a Francis Leahy and a Richard Leahy were Masons in Kinsale - likely family members? From the Annals of Kinsale -
    * On 14th November, 1796 Francis Leahy and Richard Leahy, Masons gave securities to the local parish church for 'the rebuilding of pews, galleries, pulpit and desk, flooring and new modelling' (of) the church.
    * In September, 1745 a Richard Leahy of Kinsale was appointed as the Deputy Constable of Cork Street, Kinsale.
    * While as early as 1664 a John Lehay of Kinsale was mentioned as having sailed in the Ship 'Vergine'.

    CORPORATION OF KINSALE - SELECT COMMITTEE - KINSALE ELECTION PETITION - MINUTES OF EVIDENCE - MARCH AND APRIL 1838 (1837/1838) - (The Document starts here - http://www.dippam.ac.uk/eppi/documents/11185/page/257339
    At the time the Corporation of Kinsale consisted of the sovereign, burgesses, freemen and the common speaker and there were no guilds.
    It was mentioned that -
    * On 14th September, 1818 a John Leahy was sworn in as a freeman of the Corporation of Kinsale.
    * While on 9th April, 1838, it was pronounced that Francis Leahy a Mason was to be admitted and sworn in as a freeman of the Corporation of Kinsale at the next or on any future court of the D'Oyer Hundred - Charter and By-Laws of the City of Cork (Select Committee on the Kinsale Election Petition - Minutes of Evidence. Found at EPPI - Enhanced Parliamentary Papers of Ireland - digitized by the University of Southampton Library).

    A Francis Leahy lived in Main Street, Kinsale in 1841,1842 and 1843 (Kinsale Election Petition).

    In other sections of the same Kinsale Election Petition - minutes of evidence (the main purpose of the petition being for 'scrutiny' of the Election Poll) -
    * On 31st March, and 3rd and 6th April, 1838 John Leahy was called as a 'witness' as he was considered a professional
    * John Leahy said that he was a Mason, Builder, House - Surveyor, Measurer and Valuer; also sometimes (at one time) a Journeyman and sometimes (now) a 'Master Workman' - he had been a Builder for forty years.
    * John Leahy who lived in Kinsale, said that he had 'four houses' in Kinsale - one in Cork Street, one in the centre of the town by the Post Office - (Pearse Street) but he did not own one at 'World's End'.
    * John Leahy said that and knew Dennis McCarthy - of Rose-abbey, Kinsale - who was also a Mason and he said that Dennis has 'frequently worked for me'. He had known Dennis for 25 years.
    * A James Leahy, also a Mason, of Lower Fisher Street (now Lower O'Connell Street) Kinsale, was also mentioned, and John Leahy said that he was a not too distant relative, about the same age and that he knew him 'as well as he knew himself'.
    * John Leahy stated that he was employed by a Mr Green to survey, measure and value the Lower Fisher (O'Connell) Street (the home where James Leahy lived; and he agreed he was to survey, measure and value 'as many as 40 or 50' homes in Kinsale).
    * John Leahy commented that Lower Fisher Street (also known as Lower Street or Main Street) was where the fishing boats came in, and properties here had a lower value than at World's End, Kinsale which was a complete contrast! Fishing and summer tourism being the main industries, and Kinsale fishermen were widely regarded as having excellent fishing skills. [At this time Kinsale was considered as an old but not a flourishing town. Potatoes were the chief source of food and people kept pigs which they fed on the potato peelings, and water was scarce].
    * John Leahy also said that he had a son (in Kinsale c1838 - mentioned in reference to the construction of a specific building) who was a Mason.
    * From the discussions and the hearings in 1838, an inference can be drawn that John Leahy had visited London.
    * John Leahy was also a witness at the Kinsale Election Petition of February, 1848. The Document starts here - http://www.dippam.ac.uk/eppi/documents/12215/page/292933
    On 18th February, 1848 he said that he was a Mason and Builder and a Voter in Kinsale. He said that he was mostly a working man, and was sometimes an Inspector (of buildings). He also responded that he had a son. By this stage John Leahy would have been a Mason for 50 years - so he would have been about 65 to 70.

    From the 1852 Griffith's Index a John Leahy of Kinsale was the Occupier of 4 Fisher Street, Kinsale and Mr I Heard was the Lessor.

    Could this John Leahy, Mason, Builder, House - Surveyor, Measurer and Valuer and 'Master Workman' and somtimes an Inspector, be the 'Architect' father of John Sample Leahy? There is a very good chance of that being so. Moreover John Leahy and John Sample Leahy seemed to be diverse in their building and architectural skills and interest in property ownership! Both perhaps, partial to a drink of whisky. When John Leahy of Kinsale was a witness the Committee tried to trip him up a couple of times by throwing in red herring questions about drinking which of course he was smart enough to deny. While there is proof from his Inquest that John Sample Leahy did enjoy a drink, or two!

    I had been told nearly 50 years ago that our Leahy ancestors came from the township of Kinsale, 'it was where the Blarney Stone is'.

    Tenure Books for Kinsale, show that John Leahy (Senior) had land at Town Plots and Dromderrig in Kinsale, Cork. While House Books show that he had land at Dromderrig. This information fits in with Cork, Pearse and Market Streets being in Town Plots Townland and Fisher Street being in Dromderrig Townland. These are probably the four properties which John Leahy said that he had in Kinsale. (March, 2018)

    ** Cork Past and Present on the web is an outstanding source for History and Genealogy of the City and County of Cork, and that includes Kinsale in the County of Cork and Province of Munster.

    ** Another outstanding web site for my purposes was the Irish Genealogy site where Baptism and Marriage original records in particular, can be viewed and downloaded.

These Leahys may or may not be connected to the Leahy family that I am researching.

    FREEMAN OF THE CITY OF CORK
    William Leahy, Comment - On the ACT, 7/5/1711; Daniel Leahy, Gentleman; Daniel Francis Leahy; David Leahy, Esquire; James Leahy, Merchant; John Thomas Leahy, Major 7th Fuzileers - afterwards Lieut Col. 21st Fuzileers. http://www.corkarchives.ie/media/freemen1710-1841.pdf

    KINSALE, LAUNCESTON AND PORTLAND BAY -
    Siblings for John Sample Leahy may have been James, Richard and Francis Leahy - going by past names and the names of three of his four sons; his eldest son being John Henry Leahy.

    Some of the siblings of Ellen McCarthy could have been Cath, Denis, Michael and Timothy McCarthy. Denis, Michael and Timothy were linked somehow to a Cath McCarthy in Kinsale?

    John and Ellen Leahy had their first child Ann (Sarah Anne Maria) baptised on 19th November 1832 in Kinsale (RC). The sponsor for Ann Leahy was Mary Arundell. Their religion in important for the fact that when at Portland John and Ellen and their family were followers of the Church of England - St Stephens, Portland, Victoria.

    An extract from the British Parliamentary Papers [1833 XXVI279] indicates that John Leahy a Stonemason - 3 people in total (obviously his wife Ellen and daughter Ann) migrated to Australia on the Bounty Scheme in c1832/33 - their loan grant was £20. Page 9 of this pdf is relevant - https://ia800202.us.archive.org/3/items/op1244939-1001/op1244939-1001.pdf

    Their destination was to be Sydney, New South Wales but they ended up in Launceston, Van Diemen's Land (Tasmania). John's Death Certificate for 13th August, 1856 (spelt Lehy on his DC); and the Portland Area Cemeteries Record (1191/30582) indicate that John was nine years in Tasmania and fourteen in Victoria (at Portland or Portland Bay). In Launceston John and Ellen Leahy had - Margaret Leahy 1834 - married William Leary, Rebecca Leahy 1836 - married John Sevior, John Henry Leahy 1838 married Bridget Edwards; and James Leahy in 1840 - married Margaret Hill. The family moved across to Portland in 1841and the last three children were born in Portland - Richard Leahy c1842, Ellen or Helen Leahy in 1844 - married David Thompson Hay; and Francis (Frank) Leahy in 1847 - married Elizabeth Arnott.

    When John Leahy died in 1856 his children were listed as - Ann Maria 24, Margaret 22, Rebecca 20, John 18, James 16, Richard 14, Ellen 12 and Francis 9; and when Ellen (McCarthy) Leahy died in January 1879 at Portland her children were listed as - Annie was dead, Margaret was 45, Rebecca was 43, John was 39, James was 37, Richard was 36, Ellen was dead and Francis was dead (informant was her son John Leahy). However, records from Portland History House in the first instance indicated that Richard was dead and Francis was alive. Moreover, Rebecca Leahy (4201) and her brother Richard Leahy (4202) were baptized on 1st November, 1857 at Portland - Portland Area Baptisms. That is the last record I have about Richard Leahy. While Francis Leahy died aged 75 in 1922 at Hamilton, Victoria.

    When John Leahy died in 1856 an Inquest (see Form 1956/551 at PRO Vic) was held (spelt Lehey).

    John and Ellen Leahy are both buried in the North Portland Cemetery but the likely wooden markers have long since disappeared.

    BUILDERS’ INN & BUILDERS’ ARMS -
    From "Watering Holes in the West" [by Gwen Bennett 1997] John Leahy is mentioned re the Builders' Inn at 25 Gawler Street , Victoria [Heritage Listed Victorian Heritage Register (VHR) Number: H0659]. On page 56 of her book Gwen Bennett says 'The date of the construction of this early inn, the central two rooms only is not known. The Portland Licensing Court issued John Leahy with a License to operate from May 1st 1848. Leahy's stay in Gawler Street was short as he soon commenced the erection of the Builders' Arms in Percy Street....' There is an historic plaque on the side of the front entrance to the Builders' Inn [2010].

    Re the Builders' Arms (page 55 of the same book) ' This hotel, erected in 1850 by John Leahy from the Builders' Inn, stood on the north east corner of Percy and Henty Streets. Leahy's first license, issued in April 1850 was conditional on his finishing the house to the court's satisfaction. He leased the building to William Gough in 1851 and a five year contract between the two, (was) dated January 30, 1854...A later contract was between John Leahy and James Doueal (James married Ann Leahy 1832 - daughter of John)...' The Builders' Arms was demolished and on the site today stands a Commonwealth Bank. (1997). [For an image of the Builders' Arms see Museum, Victoria - http://museumvictoria.com.au/collections/items/769692/negative-portland-victoria-circa-1880]

    From PRO Vic - The Police Magistrates Report 1840-53, John Leahy is referred to on 1/7/1847 as applying for a Publican's License (page 62 - note in pdf format). While on pages 83, 87 and 121 there are references to him as holding a Publican's License for the Builders' Inn (as Builder) and later the Builders' Arms on 24/12/1848.

    Portland Guardian of 6th May, 1929 - Early Portland - Taken from the files of 'the Guardian' of 1848 "...John Leahy, Builder's (Builders') Arms."

    Domestic Intelligence - The Argus of 27th April, 1849 - Portland. "At the annual licensing session of the Portland branch publican's general licenses were granted to ...John Leahy, Builders’ Inn, Portland...”

    DOUEAL -
    The Portland Guardian and Normanby General Advertiser reported on 19th April 1855 - re Publican’s Licenses - that James Doueal was granted a license “but approval was cautioned by the bench against allowing improper characters about the house.” On 16th April the paper reported that “James Doueal, Builders Arms Portland. Surities, James Trangmar and Thomas Finn. Granted.” The Portland Guardian and Normanby General Advertiser newspaper reported on 22nd April, 1857 that James Doueal was the Publican at the Builders’ Arms and the house needed some repairs and the Inspector was returning in two weeks. While this paper reported on 21st April, 1858 that J Doueal was granted the license. On 8th September 1858 this same paper reported that “James Doueal, Builder’s Arms applied for a night license. Granted.” In the 1859 Victorian Government Gazette James Doueal (spelt Doneal) is listed at the Builders Arms, Portland. In 1862 another son-in-law to John Leahy, John Sevior was the Publican at the Builders Arms in Portland.

    The Portland Guardian and Normanby General Advertiser of 31st January and 7th February, 1863 - The Bush Inn at Heywood was to be sold or let and the Proprietor was Mrs Doueal [Ann (Leahy) Doueal - her husband James Doueal had died at Hewood on the 15th May, 1862.

    ELLEN (Mc CARTHY) LEAHY -
    It was reported on 25th April, 1860, in the Portland Guardian and Normanby General Advertiser that Ellen Leahy had been granted a Publican's License at the Builders' Arms, Portland. Mr Scott supported the application.

    JOHN LEAHY AS AN ELECTOR -
    The Portland Guardian and Normanby General Advertiser of 4th February - John Leahy was a signatory to an open letter to Stephen George Henty Esq., JP asking him to stand as a representative of the Legislative Council pledging their votes and support - the date was Jan 30, 1843.

    Crown Grants to John Leahy - Portland Allot 19 Sect 12 Lot 8 Year No 930 of 1848; and Allot 10 Sect 32 No 617 Year 1847. There were also Crown Grants at Merrimu in 1847 and 1855 for a John Leahy - I think that this was another John Leahy and not John Sample Leahy? A notice in the Melbourne Argus of 7th September, 1847 "Deeds of Grant ...for land purchased from the Crown...Egan and Leahy...” The Argus of 8th, 11th, 15th and 22nd June, 1847 - Title Deeds - Port Phillip Lands - ‘John Egan, Michael Egan and John Leahy, as tenants in common, 160 acres, Bourke, Lot 34.’ Besides John Egan and Michael had been granted land at Merrimu in 1846 -the Argus of 13th November, 1846.

    The Portland Guardian and Normanby General Advertiser of 18th February, 1869 reported a Crown Grant to E Leahy of Portland; and on 3rd February, 1873 reported under Crown Grant, Portland - under Sec 12 E Leahy (both likely Ellen Leahy)

    SALES OF LANDS AND PROPERTIES –
    On 15th March, 1848 it was reported in the Sydney Morning Herald (from late Australasian papers) that John Leahy had sold Crown land Lot 8, at Portland for £65 10s.

    The Melbourne Argus of 13th November, 1849 - Government Land Sales - Town Lots - ' no 32 Portland, 2 roods, allotment No 10 of section 13, John Leahy £51.'

    On 14th, 19th, 21st, 26th, 28th May and 16th June, 1856, The Portland Guardian and Normanby General Advertiser - ran an ad from John Leahy (spelt Lehey twice) for the sale of the ' Builders' Arms public house at the corner of Henty and Percy-streets, 3 comfortable four roomed cottages in Henty Street and 4 good shops in Percy Street...the proprietor is about to move from Portland.

    The Portland Guardian and Normanby General Advertiser of 7th and 22nd January, 1862 - Case in the Supreme Court of Victoria - Leary v Leahy - 'auction of the Builders' Arms, and its several Cottages and other buildings and appurtenances.' This seems to be about William and/or Margaret (Leahy) Leary against Ellen Leahy.

    The spelling of Leahy includes O'Leahy, O'Lay, Leahey, Lehey, Lehy and Lahy (actually a separate name) and apparently derives from the old Gaelic word of O'Laochdha or Laochda meaning heroic one. The Manor of Kinsale existed by June, 1226; and if not before, Kinsale was firmly placed into history through the Siege or Battle of Kinsale in 1601 where defeat was the fate of the Irish and it meant the end of hopes for self rule for three Centuries.

    Irish Genealogy states that these are the alternative spellings for Leahy - Leahy, Laghey, Lahey, Lahy, Leaghey, Leah, Leahey, Leehe, Leehee, Leehey, Leehy, Lehee, Lehy, Leighy, Leihy and Liahy.

    Some first names of Leahys in Kinsale, Cork from 1805 to 1829 included - Margaret, Hillary, James, Patrick, Eliza, Ellen, Mary, Daniel, Thomas and Stephen. Also Cath - in this case it could be her married name.
