The Rev. John Cosnahan, whilst a Deacon, married Margaret Moore, on the

and seven daughters. In 1691 he followed his father, Sir Hugh Cosnahan, who

died 2 months before John's marriage as Vicar of Santon. When Bishop Wilson

came to the Island they became close friends. On the 15th February, 1693,

'being Wednesday about 12 o'clock at night one of their sons, John, was

born and was baptised on Feb. 18th'. John, senior died on 14th April, 1724,

aged 56 and was buried on 16th April, 1724 in his father's and

grandfather's grave under the Great Stone in the Yard" at Santon. 1

" Sir ,' John succeeded his father as Vicar of Santan . It was during his

vicariate that Bishop Wilson arrived, and the Bishop evidently had a great

regard for the Vicar. The roystering ale-drinking type was replaced by a

much more dignified type of parish clergyman. Sir John bought Ballavilley

from Thomas Quaye in 1703. ref, note 2

Bishop Wilson wrote in 1743: "The purchase of BallaKelly made by them, is

at present in the possession of John Cosnahan who was heir to his father

Hugh . Who was heir to his father John , Vicar of the said Parish , the

first purchaser of the estate of BallaKelly". ref, note 4

Married on St. Peter's Day 1

It was to Sir John's eldest son John that Bishop Wilson was so devoted. This John failed to get the choice of the Earl of Derby of that time to become Vicar of Santan, and the long line of Santan Vicars was broken.

Instead, the Bishop made him Vicar of Braddan, and almost immediately

Vicar-General. It is by the title of Vicar-General that he is generally

known. He proved to be a most astute business man, devoted to the saintly

Bishop Wilson, and his name appears on countless ecclesiastical documents

of the period. ref, note 2

Vicar-General John married Ann Karran (also sometimes spelt Corran and

Corrin). They had six children, two sons, Joseph and Hugh, and four

daughters, Anne, Jane, Catherine, and Margaret, all of whom were

noteworthy. ref, note 2

For the Vicar -General the hand written burial date in Brian Kneen's family records is 29th June 1750 . So Frances Coakley's burial date list is a year out for the Vicar-General. ref, note 4 . now confirmed by Parish register as 1749.

Generation No.3

7. MARGARET8 COSNAHAN (JOHN7, JOHN6, HUGH5, JOHN4, WILLIAM3, JOHN2 QUISHLAGAN, JOHN1 QUISHNOGA) was born May 22, 1718 in Kirk St, Ann Santon, Isle of Man, and died June 16, 1769 in Kirk Braddan Isle of Man. She married ROBERT BROWN January 03, 1736/37 in Kirk Braddan, Isle of Man.

Notes for MARGARET COSNAHAN:

Seems to be the Margaret Cosnahan, sister of Anne, married to Capt Robert Brown*1 Margaret married Captain Robert Brown, and was the great-grandmother of T. E. Brown.2

One Margaret was baptised on June 30 1716, another on May 22 1718, the

first the daughter of John, the Vicar-General and later Vicar of Braddan

(1693-1749), the other to a Jon Cosnahan and his wife Ann. But according to

Museum papers, the Cosnahans have identified her with the first*3

Brian Kneen's Family Bible states the Margaret 1718 to 1769 is the one who married Capt Robert Brown (1) even the IGI checks it out.

Spouse Notes:

Presumably it was his son, Capt Robert Brown (II) (1761) who was captain of

the brig, Caesar for a trip to Marseilles in 1785 when he was only 24, he

was the son of a skipper and bred to the sea and his education was not

neglected by his grandfather, the Vicar of Santon. The son of Capt Robert

Brown (II) was Rev Robert Brown, father of T.E. Brown the Manx poet.*1

'My father, the Rev. Robert Brown, was certainly Manx, and both his parents

were born in the lsland. His father (T.E.B.'s grandfather), Captain Robert

Brown, married Jane Drumgold, who belonged to a family which originally

came from the North of Ireland, but had been a long time settled in

Douglas. It was from them that Drumgold Street took its name. *2

Notes for ELLINOR COSNAHAN:

This suggests that Ellinor Cosnahan, who married Thomas Woods, was the

sister of Rev Joseph Cosnahan Vicar of Braddan 1750 -1768. and so the

daughter of Vicar-General John Cosnahan and Ann Corrin. Do you have any

record of this? yes John Stowells records re:15

This is what Gelling says about Ellinor 's spouse Thomas Woods:

Woods, Rev. Thomas William Joseph. D 1746; P 20 Sep. 1747 at Kirk Michael;

schoolmaster & chaplain of Ballure, Sep. 1747 -1754; V of Maughold 6 Aug.

1754 - Dec. 1768; V of Braddan 23 Dec. 1768 until death in Feb. 1786.

Ballure was originally a chapel of ease built at the request of the

residents of Ramsey who, in order to reach the parish church of Maughold,

had to cross the Ballure river which was often a raging torrent. The

chaplains were appointed by the vicar. In bishop Wilson's time the chapel

was used as a school; Woods' precedessor was a schoolmaster who, though not

ordained, was licensed to conduct services. The chapel was restored and

enlarged in 1743, and reconsecrated 9 June 1745.

On the death of Joseph Cosnahan, Thomas Woods became vicar of Braddan 23

Dec. 1768. In the following January the churchwardens were presented for

not having provided enough wine for the Christmas communion. There was

only half a bottle in the vestry. A full bottle was held in reserve at Pat

Cubbon's nearby alehouse, but when sent for it was found to be half empty.

The warden explained that he had given some of it to a woman who was taken

ill in the alehouse.

The Maughold vicarage was rebuilt and much improved between 1757 and 1761.

In May 1773 Woods and the wardens told the ecclesiastical court that the

roof and part of the gable of Braddan church was ruinous and looked

dangerous. The verdict of a committee of experts is not preserved, but it

is thought they recommended building a new and larger church. In fact a

major restoration took place; the date on the tower is 1774.

In 1781 vicar Woods of Braddan agreed to the consecration of St George's

chapel on condition that Braddan should not be responsible for its upkeep

(which was to come from the rental of pews). Bishop Mason claimed for

himself and his successors the right to appoint a chaplain. Woods

challenged this and appointed Julius Cosnahan. The case came before the

Metropolitan court in York, but lapsed on the death of both the bishop and

the vicar. [Altogether St George's seems to have caused a number of

disputes: whether the yard was consecrated ground; whether the act of

consecrating the chapel put it on a par with all other churches, or left

the bishop with special rights as patron; whether it could have

churchwardens although it was not a parish church; and so on.]

Braddan: Vicar Woods died in February 1786 and was succeeded on 21 Mar. by

his nephew Julius Cosnahan.

Some of those are paraphrases of what Gelling wrote, or amalgamated from

several passages in different chapters of the book (a separate chapter for

the incumbancy of each bishop).

Notes for THOMAS WOODS:

Thomas Woods was Vicar of Braddan until his death in February 1786. Then

his nephew, Julius Cosnahan, became Vicar of Braddan on 21 Mar 1786.

Cosnahan, Rev. Julius. The first chaplain of St George's, Douglas, 1781; V

of Braddan 21 Mar. 1786 until his death 5 months later; buried Santan 26

Aug. m. Margaret daughter of Deemster Moore.

Julius, as we know, was the son of Rev Joseph Cosnahan, Vicar of Braddan

1750 -1768, and Margaret Caesar.

This suggests that Ellinor Cosnahan, who married Thomas Woods, was the

sister of Rev Joseph Cosnahan Vicar of Braddan 1750 -1768. and so the

daughter of Vicar-General John Cosnahan and Ann Corrin.

This is what Gelling says about Woods:

Woods, Rev. Thomas William Joseph. D 1746; P 20 Sep. 1747 at Kirk Michael;

schoolmaster & chaplain of Ballure, Sep. 1747 -1754; V of Maughold 6 Aug.

1754 - Dec. 1768; V of Braddan 23 Dec. 1768 until death in Feb. 1786.

10. JOSEPH W.8 COSNAHAN (JOHN7, JOHN6, HUGH5, JOHN4, WILLIAM3, JOHN2 QUISHLAGAN, JOHN1 QUISHNOGA) was born July 17, 1726 in Kirk St, Ann Santon, Isle of Man, and died September 22, 1768 in Kirk St, Ann Santon Isle of Man. He married (1) MARGARET CAESAR June 17, 1749 in Kirk Braddan Isle of Man. He married (2) ELLINOR RADCLIFFE July 22, 1760 in Bishopscourt Chapel, Isle of Man, daughter of ROBERT RADCLIFFE and CATHERINE GILL.

Notes for JOSEPH W. COSNAHAN:

According to Canon E. H. Stenning, Rev Joseph, Vicar of Braddan, was born in 1725 and died in 1768. He was twice married. His first wife Margaret Cesar was daughter of a Douglas merchant. By her he had four children, one son Julius, and three daughters, Margaret and Anne (twins) and Jane.

Notes for JULIUS COSNAHAN:

The Reverend Mr, Julius Cosnahan, Vicar of Kirk Braddan was buried at Kirk Santon on the 26th August 1786.4 19

Cosnahan, Rev. Julius. The first chaplain of St George's, Douglas, 1781; Vicar of Braddan 21 Mar. 1786 until his death 5 months later; buried Santan 26 Aug. m. Margaret daughter of Deemster Moore.16

[The previous vicar of Braddan, who incurred the bishop's displeasure by appointing Cosnahan chaplain of St George's, was Thomas William Joseph Woods, said to be Cosnahan's uncle. Therefore his wife Ellinor Cosnahan was probably a sister of Rev Joseph Cosnahan] 16

Revd. Julius Cosnahan appears to have been a very namby-pamby young man, so far as we may judge from a letter of Bishop Hildesley. He was a pupil of the Castletown Academic School, and eventually was curate of S. George's, and Vicar for one year (1785) of Braddan, where he died. His wife was Margaret, daughter of Deemster Moore of Rushen Abbey. There were no children.

Notes for HUGH COSNAHAN: See next tree of Hugh Cosnahan at the end of this one . Where the KNEEN's tie in to the tree.

Hugh Cosnahan, Merchant, of Douglas, who gave two copper collecting pans,

dated 1757, to the Santon Church. 1

Hugh Cosnahan, M.H.K., son of the Vicar General, was born at Santan 1728.

In 1753 he married Ellinor Finch. They lived first at Ballakelly, Santan,

but later in Douglas. He was elected to the Keys in 1777, and died 1799. He

had a family of fifteen, most of whom died young. He is described as " a

man of persuasive eloquence," and " the darling of the Keys." Hugh Cosnahan

was chosen by the Keys to go to London, together with George Moore, to set

before the Imperial Government the case for the Keys, as against that of

the Duke of Atholl, concerning adjustments in payments to the Atholl family

of customs dues, etc. The Duke of Atholl charged him with being the

fomenter of all the trouble, which evidence shows to have been a very

unmerited charge. Later in his life he lived at Ballakew, Malew, and was

treasurer for the fund for building S. Mark's Church, of which he was first

Churchwarden. Hugh bought much land in Braddan, including the large farms

of Ballafletcher and Larkhill. Of his family of fifteen, six grew up, and

were married. ref, note 2

John STOWELL, (b. 1762, d. 1799), was the eldest son of Thomas Stowell and Ann Brown, an advocate and public notary, and on the staff of the "Manks Mercury and Briscoe's Douglas Advertiser," the first Manx newspaper. He is chiefly known by his clever satirical poems. Two of them were entitled " A Sallad for the Young Ladies and Gentlemen of Douglas, Raised by Tom the Gardener," and " The Retrospect, " . His other satires are: (1) " A Literary Quixote; or, The Beauties of Townley Versified." In this he makes fun of the journal (chiefly concerned with the vagaries of Manx weather) of a valetudinarian Englishman who lived in the island for a short time at the end of the last century, (2) " A Switch for Tom the Gardener, or, The Sallad dressed and the Lamb roasted." Here the objects of his derision are the young ladies of Douglas.|| He also wrote the following poems, which are not satirical:" On the Death of the much-esteemed Mrs Callow ;" " On the Death of Miss of. Bacon ," " An Elegiac Invocation of the Muses occasioned by the Death of. the amiable Miss Nessy Heywood ;" and " An Address to the Duchess of Atholl." All Stowell's poems were published anonymously in small pamphlets or broadsides which are now extremely scarce. In the " Sallad " he eulogises the good old times " ere Manxmen understood what noble was, and what plebeian blood," and he then proceeds to satirise the modern ways and fashions of young ladies.11

He married JANE DRUMGOLD October 24, 1784 in Kirk Braddan Isle of Man, daughter of JAMES DRUMGOLD and JANE STOWELL.

Notes for ROBERT BROWN:

Occupation: Captain of the brig Caesar 1785-86

Presumably it was Capt Robert Brown (II) (1761) who was captain of the brig Caesar for a trip to Marseilles in 1785 when he was only 24, he was the son of a skipper and bred to the sea and his education was not neglected by his grandfather, the Vicar of Santon. The son of Capt Robert Brown (II) was Rev Robert Brown, father of T.E. Brown the Manx poet.1

'My father, the Rev. Robert Brown, was certainly Manx, and both his parents were born in the island. His father (T.E.B.'s grandfather), Captain Robert Brown, married Jane Drumgold, who belonged to a family which originally came from the North of Ireland, but had been a long time settled in Douglas. It was from them that Drumgold Street took its name. 2

Notes for ROBERT BROWN:

Education: Chaplain St Matthews 1817-32; Vicar Braddan 1836-461

Robert Brown, the only son of Captain Robert Brown and Jane Drumgold, was born in Douglas. His father died at sea when he was a child. He was chiefly educated at the Castletown Academic School. He was both a learned man-his favourite study being ecclesiastical history-and :a faithful pastor. Learning he loved with a surpassing ardour, and he assiduously and successfully cultivated the charm of a refined and graceful style. This was conspicuous in his sermons, which he composed and committed to memory, since, owing to imperfect vision' he was unable to read anything written with facility. With his Manx sermons, one of which he preached every Sunday, he took even more pains than with his English. These sermons were delivered in an exquisitely musical voice, " a voice steeped in delicacy, and vibrant with the most subtle tendencies." This, no doubt, contributed to his " magnetic faculty of affecting the strong, rugged natures which were in many respects so sharply contrasted with the delicacy of his own high strung nervous temperament." In his church views he was a pronounced evangelical. Deeply in earnest, he was a simple and faithful preacher of the Gospel. It should be mentioned that he was a musician and ;a composer, two well known hymn tunes-" Braddan" and " Hatford "-being by him. He was also a poet. In 1826, he published a volume of poems, chiefly on sacred subjects, which are mainly distinguished by the vein of unaffected piety which runs through them. But his best poems, consisting of satires, published in the " Manx Liberal " newspaper, are now completely forgotten. His son, the late Rev. T. E. Brown, pronounces these poems to be " very good, good in the style of Dryden or Pope, with a marked leaning towards Byron," and he farther remarks that "they were polished, witty, humorous,, metrically excellent, and marked by that classical turn of phrase and idea which is always unmistakable.''2 In some respects they resemble the satires of his cousin, John Stowell, to which we refer elsewhere, but, unlike them, they are devoid of coarseness. He was head master of the Douglas Grammar School and Chaplain of St. Matthew's from 1817 to 1832, when he took charge of the Parish of Braddan for the Rev. Thomas Howard, his beloved friend. In 1836, he succeeded him as Vicar of Braddan, and he remained there till his comparatively early death ten years later. 8

For an interesting account of the way in which these sermons were composed, arid for the charming biographical account by the Rev T. E. Brown from which this notice is taken, see the Ramsey Church Magazine ~ lithe Rev T. E. Brown at the Liverpool Meeting of the Caner Association n 1881. 3 Ramsey Church Magazine.8

22. ANNE9 COSNAHAN (JOSEPH W.8, JOHN7, JOHN6, HUGH5, JOHN4, WILLIAM3, JOHN2 QUISHLAGAN, JOHN1 QUISHNOGA) was born January 27, 1760 in Seafield , Isle of Man. She married JOHN JOSEPH BACON January 02, 1783 in Kirk Braddan Isle of Man, son of JOSEPH BACON and ELIZABETH CHRISTIAN.

Notes for ANNE COSNAHAN:

Ann was John Joseph BACON's second wife. 1

In 1832, on Christmas Day, Mrs. Ann Bacon, widow of John Joseph Bacon, of Ballavilley, presented to the (Santon) Church, a very handsome set of silver sacramental vessels, which are used every week and bear the letters INS, the cross and three nails in glory. Mrs. Bacon was a daughter of the Rev. Joseph Cosnahan, Vicar of Braddan and a sister of the Rev. Julius Cosnahan, who followed his father as Vicar of Braddan. Her grandfather the Rev. John

Cosnahan had also been Vicar of Braddan. 1

Anne married Julius Bacon of Douglas, and became mistress of Ballavilley, Santan. She presented the very fine set of Communion plate to Santan Church.3

Spouse: John Joseph BACON

Birth: 1728

Death: 1809

Father: Joseph BACON Esq (ca1694-1728)

Mother: Elizabeth CHRISTIAN

Marriage: 2 Jan 1783, Braddan, Isle of Man

John Joseph Bacon (1728-1809), the Douglas merchant and shipowner, was the only child of Joseph Bacon and his wife Elizabeth Christian, a member of the Milntown family. He had advanced two mortgages on Ballabrooie before finally taking possession from the Garrett family in 1806. He renamed the property Staward after the family's original seat in Northumberland. In spite of their English connections, most of the Garretts had lived at Ballabrooie, but J.J. Bacon and his descendants were non-resident proprietors, while always preserving a keen interest in Sulby and its affairs. 1

The farm Ballavilley (later Seafield, now Arragon) in Santon came into the family through J.J. Bacon's second marriage to the heiress Ann Cosnahan. 1

Because of earlier associations with Douglas, many of the family are buried in their vault at Onchan. note 1

The brig "Caesar" was built for John Joseph Bacon, a leading Douglas merchant, for a total of 465/8/3 by Matthias Kelly at Douglas and delivered on 26 April 1783. She traded until 1792. The name of the first captain was not indicated but in 1785 the captain was 24 year-old Robert Brown (who m Margaret Cosnahan). He was followed in 1786 by Capt William Stowell. Trade was mainly in herrings to the Mediterranean and extended to the West Indies. There is a picture of the brig in the Manx museum. note2

John Joseph Bacon had 18 (possibly 19) children by two wives note2 (first wife was Jane JOHNSON. Child: Joseph)

According to Kate Swettenham, when Roger came of age, his father gave him

a horse and sent him off to seek his fortune. He rode to Ballymena and

apprenticed himself to an attorney. Within a few years he has a successful

practice of his own. Ballymena was the main centre for the flax and linen

trade in the whole of the British Isles so there was money about. He made

sure some of it rubbed off on him. *

Roger CASEMENT of Harryville House, Co Antrim. Harryville is now part of

Ballymena but was then a separate settlement on the other side of the

river. 0

Attorney (solicitor) with offices in Ballymena and Dublin. Is assumed to

have made his fortune dealing in land leases; bought the lease of

Magherintemple from his father and the Harrison heirs 30 Dec 1790 for 4600

1 Thought to be land agent to Lord Massarene by 1797. 2 In 1831, Roger

purchased additional lands of Moneystughan, Lowriestown, Tamladuff and

Dreenan, all in County Londonderry, from Henry Ellis Esq. These were

leased out, with leases renewable for ever. 3

The dates of birth of their children are recorded in the family bible at Magherintemple and confirmed by the parish register.

He d. 1832 May 19, aged 77

Spouse Research: * Hugh Casement 0 Hugh Casement wrote that Harryville House could have been the house facing the bridge or it could have been Ballee House which is one and a half km south of the centre of town and would then have been right outside the town. The latter house had large grounds and was leased from the O'Hara family. It was burnt down in the 60s and is now the site of some institution, with most of the grounds built on. Roger owned other properties in and around Ballymena.

Notes for HUGH CASEMENT:

Hugh CASEMENT was christened in Ballymena church in 1793.

He was probably the Mr Casement who owned Pine Hill, near Drumbo, until the 1830s. It was later called Braidujle House and owned by a Fulton (John Williamson Fulton?).*15 Hugh and Agnes had two daughters, Henrietta and Catherine, who died in their teens and are buried in Drumbo churchyard.

Hugh's father gave him 2000, as his inheritance in advance, to enable him to enter into business. He was considerably in his father's debt at the latter's death in 1832 since Roger had lent him "considerable sums of money and bills of exchange and secuities to enable him to carry on" his business. As security for these loans, Hugh mortgaged his properties in Belfast to his father for 3000 on or about 31 Oct 1829 *4 He was a grain importer, of Belfast. His companies were CASEMENT, Picken & Co., flour millers and grain merchants in Tomb St.; and by 1839 Casements & McClean, ship owners & general merchants, Academy St *2. He later lived in The Moat House, Holywood, Co. Down. Holywood is about 8 km NE of Belfast, on the southern shore of Belfast Lough.

His business was said by a relative to be "of a speculative nature" *3.

His financial position was unstable after he suffered shipping losses. .

He was bankrupt in 1842 and paid his creditors 12s in the pound *5

Hugh and his family lived in London by 1843 *6. His first wife, Agnes, died there in 1848*7. At that time Hugh was a London provision merchant. Hugh then married her companion, Rachel Atkins. They had two daughters who died of dipththeria *8 before their first son David Atkins Casement was born in Stratford, London in 1852. Four more children were born in Melbourne but, of these, two boys died as babies and the girl died when about 4 or 5 years old, so only William Wilson Casement survived to adulthood.

When they emigrated to Australia in 1853, Hugh had a 4000 insurance policy *5. They settled in Melbourne and prospered. In 1854 Hugh was listed in the Melbourne General Directory as a merchant and importer with address 103 Collins Street, west. The Melbourne Directory 1859 listed CASEMENT, H. and Son, merchants, at 74 Little Collins Street East.

He later possessed property in Australia. In 1860 he was in Dunedin when,

on 13 Nov, he made the first codicil to his will. Was he the Casement who

sailed with a wife and two children on the Pirate 30 Mar 1859 and/or the

Casement who sailed from Australia to Lyttleton 20 Nov 1860 *14

He made a second codicil in London on 25 Nov 1861 and the third codicil in Melbourne on 26 Jan 1863, five days before his death. This last codicil was witnessed by his son, William Wilson Casement, and executor, Charles James Perry. Probate was obtained in London by his executor there, Joseph, John Saffery, and in Melbourne by C.J. Perry. His estate in Victoria was valued at no more than 3000 pounds. *11 His estate was insufficient to pay his legacies in full - it could only pay his wife Rachel, 500, this being the shares of three out of seven people entitled to the legacy.

According to a draft case in 1864 on behalf of Lt Col Garner, a creditor

from 1842, Hugh realized about 35,000 in New Zealand (sic) and 4000 in  England. 5

Hugh was a merchant, living in Hawthorn when he died at the City Baths in

Melbourne on 29 Jan 1863, aged 70.61

FREEHOLDERS OF NEW ZEALAND Oct 1882 has an entry - Hugh CASEMENT (Estate of the late) Waikouaiti county, Port Chalmers borough, area 386, value 2168, total value in colony 2548 - check this out further.

Two of his children, Christina Henrietta who died before him and Walter

Notes for RACHEL ATKINS:

Her Spouse's Notes:

Excerpts from a letter written in 1969 by Mary Agnes Ruth ROBERTS nee CASEMENT ('May'), 6th daughter of David Atkins CASEMENT, then 71, about her grandfather, Hugh.

Hugh CASEMENT had three sons by his first wife. I think Charlie and his two brothers were decendants of one of these sons. Hugh CASEMENT's first wife had poor health. She had a companion who use (sic) to go with her on the small river pleasure boa s, an Annie Atkins. His wife died and some time later Hugh married Annie Atkins much younger than himself. They lost their first two girls with dyptheria. Then later they had our Dad and 9 years later they had Wit who she thoroughly spoilt and idolised."

Hugh left her an annuity of 100 or 125. 1

In 1865 she was living in Hawthorn. In 1872 she was living at 8 Victoria

Parade, East Melbourne. 2

Author of TRAVELS IN THE WEST - CUBA; WITH NOTICES OF PORTO RICO AND THE SLAVE TRADE 1840 1 The book mentions Mrs Turnbull but gives no further clues.

David was not "consul in Jamaica" as stated by Kate Swettenham and in IFR. As Jamaica was a British possession it had no need of a consul. A David Turnbull was appointed consul in Havana 1840 Aug. 22. Havana was made a consulate-general in 1842, when he was not reappointed. But a David Turnbull was judge of the court of mixed commission in Jamaica at his marriage in 1844. That fits with Elinor having died in Jamaica.

25. JOHN9 COSNAHAN (HUGH8, JOHN7, JOHN6, HUGH5, JOHN4, WILLIAM3, JOHN2 QUISHLAGAN, JOHN1 QUISHNOGA) was born February 22, 1754, and died February 25, 1819 in died suddenly. He married CATHERINE FINCH July 12, 1777 in Kirk Braddan , Isle of Man.

Notes for JOHN COSNAHAN:

The eldest son, John, born in 1754, died in 1819, became Deemster. 3 The Isle of Man had two deemsters; these were the temporal judges, both in cases of common law and of life and death; but most of the controversies, especially such as are too trivial to be brought before a court, were dispatched at their houses.100

The deemster's oath, which he took when he entered upon his office, was, " You shall do justice between man and man, as equally as the herring-bone lies between the two sides ;" thus his daily

food was expected to remind him of his obligation to give impartial judgment.100

Deemster John COSNAHAN married his cousin Catherine Finch, and had a family of seven sons (all noteworthy) and one daughter, Catherine, who married Chris. Bridson. John Cosnahan was co-opted to the Keys in 1779, presumably on the death of his father. He was trained as a lawyer, and became the first High Bailiff of Douglas. In 1810 he was appointed Water Bailiff. Like his father, he was sent to London to represent the Keys in 1791. He is said to have made a magnificent speech at the Bar of the Commons. The Deemster seems to have been very " difficult " in matters of personality. He seems to have had a great contempt for anybody who toadied to the Atholl camp, and was as many times complaining about the lowness of his salary. He was the first Deemster ever appointed who could not speak Manks, and had to have an interpreter. Since his very distinguished family left no heirs, or even heiresses, it is best to consider them now. 3

JOHN COSNAHAN (b. 1754, d. l8l9), son of Hugh Cosnahan and Eleanor Finch,* was an advocate a member of the House of Keys, and High-Bailiff of Douglas. In 1808, he was appointed water-bailiff, with a seat in the Council. In 1790, he) together with Norris Moore, afterwards deemster, was sent to London by the Keys to oppose a Bill to give the Duke of Atholl more compensation for the loss of his sovereignty. The petition, which they laid before the' House of Commons, closed with a prayer that they might be heard by counsel at the bar of the House. This was agreed to, and John COSNAHAN, who was a man of brilliant mind, ready wit, and powerful elocution, acted as the counsel in question. His address was greatly applauded, and it considerably affected the desired end, namely the withdrawal of the Bill. Not till a few months before his death did he receive the appointment of deemster, an office which he would probably have attained to at a much earlier date, but for the opposition of the duke, who disliked him on account of his keen advocacy for the popular side.

* Finch Road was named after an ancestor of hers. His father, an M.H.K was one of the commissioners appointed to try and modify the fiscal arrangements made at the Revestment. + Manx Advertiser.11

Died suddenly. 24

Descendants of Hugh Cosnahan M. H. K  ...... of   Kirk Santon, Isle of Man

Generation No. 1

1. HUGH8 COSNAHAN (JOHN7, JOHN6, HUGH5, JOHN4, WILLIAM3, JOHN2 QUISHLAGAN, JOHN1 QUISHNOGA) was born September 12, 1728 in Kirk St, Ann Santon , Isle of Man, and died March 12, 1799 in Kirk Braddan Isle of Man. He married ELEANOR FINCH February 27, 1753 in Douglas Chapel, Isle of Man.

Notes for HUGH COSNAHAN:

Hugh Cosnahan, Merchant, of Douglas, who gave two copper collecting pans,

dated 1757, to the Santon Church. 1

Hugh Cosnahan, M.H.K., son of the Vicar General, was born at Santan 1728.

In 1753 he married Ellinor Finch. They lived first at Ballakelly, Santan,

but later in Douglas. He was elected to the Keys in 1777, and died 1799. He

had a family of fifteen, most of whom died young. He is described as " a

man of persuasive eloquence," and " the darling of the Keys." Hugh Cosnahan

was chosen by the Keys to go to London, together with George Moore, to set

before the Imperial Government the case for the Keys, as against that of

the Duke of Atholl, concerning adjustments in payments to the Atholl family

of customs dues, etc. The Duke of Atholl charged him with being the

fomenter of all the trouble, which evidence shows to have been a very

unmerited charge. Later in his life he lived at Ballakew, Malew, and was

treasurer for the fund for building S. Mark's Church, of which he was first

Churchwarden. Hugh bought much land in Braddan, including the large farms

of Ballafletcher and Larkhill. Of his family of fifteen, six grew up, and

were married. ref, note 2

Generation No. 2

2. JOHN9 COSNAHAN (HUGH8, JOHN7, JOHN6, HUGH5, JOHN4, WILLIAM3, JOHN2 QUISHLAGAN, JOHN1 QUISHNOGA) was born February 22, 1754, and died February 25, 1819 in died suddenly. He married CATHERINE FINCH July 12, 1777 in Kirk Braddan , Isle of Man.

Notes for JOHN COSNAHAN:

The eldest son, John, born in 1754, died in 1819, became Deemster. 3 The Isle of Man had two deemsters; these were the temporal judges, both in cases of common law and of life and death; but most of the controversies, especially such as are too trivial to be brought before a court, were dispatched at their houses.100

The deemster's oath, which he took when he entered upon his office, was, " You shall do justice between man and man, as equally as the herring-bone lies between the two sides ;" thus his daily

food was expected to remind him of his obligation to give impartial judgment.100

Deemster John COSNAHAN married his cousin Catherine Finch, and had a family of seven sons (all noteworthy) and one daughter, Catherine, who married Chris. Bridson. John Cosnahan was co-opted to the Keys in 1779, presumably on the death of his father. He was trained as a lawyer, and became the first High Bailiff of Douglas. In 1810 he was appointed Water Bailiff. Like his father, he was sent to London to represent the Keys in 1791. He is said to have made a magnificent speech at the Bar of the Commons. The Deemster seems to have been very " difficult " in matters of personality. He seems to have had a great contempt for anybody who toadied to the Atholl camp, and was as many times complaining about the lowness of his salary. He was the first Deemster ever appointed who could not speak Manks, and had to have an interpreter. Since his very distinguished family left no heirs, or even heiresses, it is best to consider them now. 3

JOHN COSNAHAN (b. 1754, d. l8l9), son of Hugh Cosnahan and Eleanor Finch,* was an advocate a member of the House of Keys, and High-Bailiff of Douglas. In 1808, he was appointed water-bailiff, with a seat in the Council. In 1790, he) together with Norris Moore, afterwards deemster, was sent to London by the Keys to oppose a Bill to give the Duke of Atholl more compensation for the loss of his sovereignty. The petition, which they laid before the' House of Commons, closed with a prayer that they might be heard by counsel at the bar of the House. This was agreed to, and John COSNAHAN, who was a man of brilliant mind, ready wit, and powerful elocution, acted as the counsel in question. His address was greatly applauded, and it considerably affected the desired end, namely the withdrawal of the Bill. Not till a few months before his death did he receive the appointment of deemster, an office which he would probably have attained to at a much earlier date, but for the opposition of the duke, who disliked him on account of his keen advocacy for the popular side.

* Finch Road was named after an ancestor of hers. His father, an M.H.K was one of the commissioners appointed to try and modify the fiscal arrangements made at the Revestment. + Manx Advertiser.11

Died suddenly. 24

Notes for EMILY ELEANOR COSNAHAN:

Hugh's daughter Eleanor, the only survivor of the Santan family, married Thomas Cosnahan, host of the Union Hotel, Castletown, thus uniting the only two marriageable members of the two families. On her behalf Thomas claimed the estates of her grandfather Mark, but he had to compromise with other claimants, as we have seen. Eleanor d. 1914, buried at Malew.3

Her children's christening records in IGI give her name as Emily Eleanor and Emily Elinor

Notes for THOMAS COSNAHAN:

Thomas is identified by #54 in this Kirk Patrick Family Tree by Canon Stenning.

Thomas, mine host of the Union, took part in a very remarkable family romance. He married a Cosnahan, who was in fact, though he did not know it (nor apparently did she), the last survivor of the Santan branch, thus bringing about the fusion of the two surviving branches now so greatly attenuated. One could have hoped that a new line would have been started, but there were only two children, the present owner of Staarvey, Mrs. Emily Corkish, and her brother Thomas, a house-painter, accidentally killed in Manchester in 1909, leaving no heir Thomas mine host was apparently a litigiously-minded man, for on behalf of his wife he put in a claim for the property of Mark Cosnahan, a Liverpool merchant of the Santan line (q.v.). He was not completely successful, though many well able to judge think he ought to have been successful. But he accepted a compromise payment of 800. Another brother, James, died in Douglas in 1909, and left an estate of 9,000. He was buried in Braddan, where he is commemorated by a tombstone erected by his niece, presumably Mrs. Corkish.
