Mullowney Harbour Main

William Mullowney is listed in the Plantation Books of 1805-6 as having a room in Harbour Main (pg 46 #306) since 1806; ‘In consequence of lying void for upwards of 60 years or more.’ This room is on the waterside and has no buildings. His immediate neighbours are James Wall (south) and Thomas Hickey (north).

My general premise: In 1807 William Mullowney would have been about 37 years old and at that time, he and his ?brother John were living in Harbour Main, and were members of the Irish Benevolent Society. William was already married to Elizabeth Woodford, who had probably been born in Harbour Main, and they had at least one child, a son John.

see also Wm Mullowney’s Will – Grand Banks Website

In 1811 William Mullowney became a Constable, a position he held for 32 years until he was forced to retire “due to imfirmities of age.” He was 73 years old in 1843, when he petitioned the General Assembly for a pension. From an entry I found in the Journal of the House of Assembly (1841) I know that he took the names for the voter’s list for the division of Harbor Main (from Salmon Cove Point to Holyrood) for the years 1837 thru 1840. Consequently, I know that he was literate, that he could both read and write. I would like to know more about the duties of Constables in Newfoundland at this time.

Family tradition has it that he and his brother built two houses side by side on the beach, and at some later date these houses were joined to become one unit. This is a possible senario because the house although small has two chimneys.

I have no information at all on William Mullowney’s ?brother John, except for his name on the Irish Benevolent Society’s membership list.

In his Will written August 31st 1844 (probated 1847), we know that his wife Elizabeth is still living. He leaves the bulk of his estate to his son John; a feather bed for each of his grandchildren 1.) Elizabeth, 2.) Mary, and 3.) William; and to his daughters 1.) Ellen and 2.) Elizabeth one heifer calf each. No mention is made of his children Mary or William.

A number of questions are presented. Were the grandchildren listed in William Mullowney’s will his son John’s children? Who was John Mullowney’s wife? What became of Mary (b 1810) and William (1815)?

No family connections at all are mentioned in the obituaries but it’s likely that these are for John, son of William & Elizabeth Woodford Mullowney.

There are still many questions to be answered regarding this family. Not the least of which is –
Where did William Mullowney and his ?brother John come from?

IV. Patrick Mullowney (Harbour Main) m. Mary Nugent (Kelligrews) May 30 1882
Wit: John Brick & Margaret Cozens

Patrick Mullowney and his wife Mary Nugent lived in the Beach House in Harbour Main. They had no children of their own but he often visted his brother William in Clarks Beach, and was in the habit of bringing his niece, Elizabeth (dau of Wm & Mary Kent) back to Harbour Main for visits. I’m not sure how old she was when this arrangement became permanent (somewhere between 6 & 9 yrs I think.) Elizabeth (my mother’s grandmother) told my mother that she loved being in Harbour Main with her aunt and uncle, and that her parents weren’t happy about having her leave home at such an early age, but eventually gave in and allowed her to stay with Patrick and Mary.

At any rate she lived with them in the Beach House, until she was a young woman and then went to Cape Breton, NS ( at 19 or 20?) for a year or so. In Cape Breton she lived with her best friend, Elizabeth Dwyer (of Chapel’s Cove, dau of Wm Dwyer & Mary Hynes) – I imagin they must have been living in a boarding house. In NS, at the same time were their fiances – Patrick Murphy and Richard Frederick Fewer.

Some years ago, a fellow researcher, William Hannon, sent me a marriage record that might apply to this Mary Mullowney. I have to say ‘might’ even though I think it does. Follows is a transcription: and here is a copy of Will’s image of the record.

This is to Certify that JAMES CRAWLEY of CHAPELS COVE
and MARY MULLONEY of HARBOR MAIN were Married at
PORT DE GRAVE this 8th day of Jany in the Year of our
Lord 1826 By me, DENIS MACKIN Clergyman in Holy Orders
This Marriage was solemnized between us, JAMES [his mark] CRAWLEY
…………………………………. MARY [her mark] MULLONEY
In the presence of us, TIMOTHY SULLIVAN
Witnefses present at the said Marriage.
[Note: Only the witnesses signed their own names]

Mary Mullowney would have been 16 years old when this marriage took place. And from the Cemetery Records at Chapel’s Cove on the NL Grand Banks – Harbour Main District _ Chapel’s Cove Cemetery, James Crawley would have been born in 1801, and would have been 25 years old when he and Mary Mullowney were married. Elizabeth Mullowney, (1808) her sister, who was probably her bridesmaid, would have been 18 years old.

96B CRAWLEY James, May 29, 1890, 29 yrs, [1861] Erected by Nicholas in memory of his beloved brother. Requiescat in pace
96C CRAWLEY Nicholas, Jun 28, 1903, 39 yrs [1864]
In loving memory
A light from our household is gone /
A voice we loved is stilled /
A place is vacant by our hearth /
Which never can be filled.
96D CRAWLEY Patrick Oct 24, 1906 79 yrs [1827]

Christopher Patrick Feb 02, 1916 1 month
Erected by John Crawley in loving memory
of his father, mother and son.
Sacred Heart of Jesus have mercy on their souls

The cemetery records seem consistent with with JAMES CRAWLEY’S marriage record. There is no headstone for MARY MULLOWNEY CRAWLEY, and I’m supposing this is because she died at a much earlier time. JAMES CRAWLEY, JR., had no recollection of her when he buried his father.??

However, the headstones 96B & 96C for James and Nicholas (brothers) cannot be for the sons of JAMES CRAWLEY and MARY MULLOWNEY CRAWLEY. These men were born in 1861 and 1864 respectively, and so could not have been the children of a man born in 1801. 96B JAMES CRAWLEY (born 1801) and married in 1826 had a son JAMES who erected his headstone. It would appear that 96D PATRICK CRAWLEY (born 1827) would be a good candidate for 96A JAMES’s son… So we may suppose that there were at least two sons – JAMES and PATRICK.

I think that the Patrick Crawley who married Magraret Conran has the 96D headstone above. The following baptisms are from Sts Peter and Paul, and the records are available at the NL Grand Banks website.

1861…#22…James…26 Mar, Kyran Walsh Edward Crowley Sarah Couran
1862…#94…Nicholas…26 Sep, Kyran Walsh James Crowly Constance Fardy

So far this is all I have on this particular family.

Benevolent Irish Society Members for 1807
Memorial University Digital Archives Document Page

Mr. William MULLOWNY (Harbor Main)
Mr. Wm. MULLOWNEY (Harbor Grace)
Mr. John MULLOWNEY (Harbor Main)

Thomas Mullowney on the above list was probably from St. John’s, the headquarters of the Society.

The Wm. Mullowney from Harbour Grace was a merchant and ‘gentleman’ of that town. His name appears on a petition to the Pope of the Roman Catholic Church dated November AD 1794, along with other ‘gentlemen’ and priests, requesting the appointment to Newfoundland of the Rev. Father James Louis O’Donel as Bishop.

William Mullowney’s name is attached to a number of indentures for the Conception Bay North area, including Harbour Main. William Mullowney acted as an agent for John Webb in Western Bay. In some cases it is difficult to say with any certainty which William Mullowney is which; although it is most likely that the Harbour Grace merchant was John Webb’s agent.

The Harbour Grace merchant’s death notice which appeared in The Newfoundlander on Apr 2 1828 was brief and noted only that he was a merchant, ‘formerly of Harbour Grace,’ that he died at Bristol on the 5th of Feb, and that he had ‘for many years carried on extensive business in this town’ (St. John’s).

The Harbor Grace and Carbonear Weekly Journal and General Advertiser for Conception Bay listed among the passengers of the ‘Elizabeth’ from Bristol – 8 Oct 1828 – Mr. MULLOWNEY . I am assuming that this man was somehow connected to William Mullowney, who had died in Bristol in February.

The same newspaper reported the 19 Feb 1829 meeting of the 15th Anniversary of the Benevolent Irish Society of Conception Bay, which took place at the Waterford Arms Hotel.

Resolved unanimously that this Society take a retrospective view of the character and conduct of one of its earliest friends, and most liberal benefactors, W. MULLOWNEY, Esq., who, in the discharge of the duties devolving on him as its Treasurer, from 1814, to his demise in February 1828, exhibited to the public, and to this Society the dignified exertion of talent and liberality… and while his family lament the loss in his person, they console themselves with the solemn and affecting assurance, that his bright example will… continue to shed a pure and hallowed light on this society, though emenating from his sepulchre.

And among the Officers of the Society, elected for the following year (1829) was William MULLOWNEY, Treasurer;.

So, is the new Treasurer of the Benevolent Irish Society – William Mullowney Junior? and is this Jr. the Constable in Harbour Main? The Harbour Main Constable would have been 59 years old at this time.

  1. William Mullowney who died in Buchans is from Clarkes Beach.

  2. C. Stuart says:

    Is William Mullowney related to the Maloneys of Holyrood NL?

  3. Frances Thompson Alexson says:

    I, came across your site and found it quite interesting. My paternal great -grand-mother, was supposively Anne Mullowney Tracey….born in Sweet Bay, NFLD in 1848. My Grand-mother, was named Elizabeth Tracey Thompson, born in Sweet Bay in 1880. I, have never been able to prove the birth of Elizabeth Tracey. I, have searched , The Rooms and St. John’s Basilica, without getting any definitive answers. My Great-Grand-Father was named Patrick Francis Tracey. The Basilica claims that Anne Mullowney and Patrick Tracey were married there in St.John’s in the year 1869. I, do believe that the Mullowney and Traceys, all originated in Sweet Bay, but find no proof. Do, you have any suggestions? Regards, Frances
