THE CONNAUGHT JOURNAL
County Galway, Ireland
Monday, November 9, 1840
On Tuesday morning, the 3d instant, at Christ's Church, Cork, by her
Uncle, the Rev. John Henry Madras, Rector of Aglish, James P. Burke, Esq.,
Editor of the Galway Advertiser to Mary, second daughter of the late Rev.
Richard Roston, A.M. of Tracron, and niece of Richard Tonson Evanson, Esq.
of Ardageena, in the county of Cork.
At St. Nicholas's Church, in this town, by the Rev. Eyre Maunsell, and
afterwards at the residence of her father by the Rev. F. Daly, P.P., Richard
Hickson, Esq., second son of the late Richard Hickson, Esq. Stanford Hall,
county of Cork, and Major of the North Cork Militia, to Fanny Antoinette,
eldest daughter of A. Blake Esq. of St. Oran's in this county.
At Coolock Church, the Rev. D. Bolingbrake Seymour, only son of Eyre
Seymour, Esq. of Eyrecourt, in this county, to Harriette Louisa, only
surviving daughter of Sir Joseph Brooke, Bart.
On the 26th ult. at Fahy, in this county, James Smyth, Esq., of Dublin,
to Dorah, second daughter of Laurence Madden, Esq. of Fahy, in said county.
On Saturday morning, of a few days illness, at Eyre-square, Monimia,
wife of Captain Dehnis, in the 59th year of her age. The quiet resignation
with which she received the unexpected summons to the tribunal of her judge,
shows that the hope laid up in her bosom had banished all tears from her
mind, and mitigated the pains and sorrows of death. The unostentatious piety
of her life-the charity and the domestic virtues which she invariably
practiced give an assurance that she is now in the enjoyment of that peace
and bliss that await the virtuous and the good. She never failed to direct
the minds of her affectionate children to the happiness that would succeed
the trials and temptations of this lower scene, if they remained faithful.
The only solace that remains to her interesting family under the bereavement
is in the confidence that this separation will not be final, and that they
will meet again the parent whom they loved. Her remains were conveyed
yesterday morning to the cemetery of St. Nicholas, attended by a large
concourse of all classes and amid the mourning of her afflicted friends.
'May she rest in peace.'
At Mount-pleasant, Loughrea, in this county, a few days since, at an
advanced age, universally regretted, Mrs. Daly, relict of the late Malachy
Daly, of Raford, Esq., a lady of the most amiable and prepossessing manners,
and of a most humane and benevolent disposition whose charity was unbounded,
and in whose death the poor and destitute of Loughrea and neighbourhood will
have a serious loss, as she largely contributed to relieve their wants and
improve their destitute condition. The lamented and much esteemed lady was
mother-in-law of A.W. Blake, Esq. of Furbo', sister of Sir John Burke, Bart,
of Merisle-hill, and aunt to the Marquis of Clanricarde.
