Daniel “Dandy” Fanning, c1805 -1853, Co Tipperary to Singleton, NSW, Australia

The following information and documents were sent to me by Barry Ryan, a direct descendant of Daniel “Dandy” Fanning and Mary Ryan nee Keane. I found the story of his research as interesting as the stories themselves.

I don’t know if my Fannings are related to Dandy. It is possible, as he came from the same parish,  Drom And Inch in Co Tipperary.

I am publishing this information as I enjoyed reading Barry’s work and it may be of interest and help to others in their family history search.

Many thanks to Barry for allowing me to post his work. Any questions and comments I will pass on to Barry.

FAMILY TREES ARE EASY AREN’T THEY?

I had never thought of compiling a family tree until one day in about 1982 when at a family gathering of some sort my cousin the late Lola RUTHERFORD (nee FARRELL) gave me a copy of “the family tree”.

…………………………………….

That was all of it. I was approaching retirement and had the time to try to expand it. A visit to Chester Hill branch of Bankstown City Council Library provided a number of books on compiling family histories. Fortunately marriage certificates of my parents and grandparents were available and there was no difficulty in obtaining a Readers Ticket from State Archives in Globe Street. My local branch library had several microfiche viewers and a number of copies of BD&M microfiche indexes and I was up and running.

Neither of my parents or their siblings were living so there were no first hand reference points but it had been drummed into me that all my ancestors came from Ireland and that is a great bonus for family tree researchers. For whatever reason I started on the maternal side and in next to no time I learnt about Assisted Immigration, Entitlement Certificates, Remittance Regulations and Shipping Records and had completed the mother’s side of the family fully documented with copies from State Archives. How easy was this? Next step was the paternal grandmother leaving the easy part till last. Again no problems. Following the text book approach it all fell into place through assisted immigration and shipping records. Within say, six months, three parts of the job was done thanks mainly to Irish ancestry and the plethora of material available through State Archives and other sources and assistance from Bankstown City Library.

I started the “easy part” of the project sometime in 1983 and completed it in 2009 which is the purpose of this little story in documenting the pitfalls and problems encountered and hope it may help others.

According to documentation available in 1983 my paternal grandfather was Joseph RYAN, born 12th July, 1850 at Scotts Flat (near Singleton) to Joseph RYAN and Mary CAIN, and he had a brother David. He married Anne McLoughlin at St Marys Catholic Church Newcastle on 16th November, 1875. Joseph RYAN does not appear in BD&M birth records. As those records pre 1856 were compiled from church records photographed by the Church of Latter Day Saints I considered that there must have been an oversight so I applied for a copy of Joseph’s Baptismal Certificate from the Catholic Church, Singleton. The answer was negative…no record found. I could not find a Mary CAIN in BD&M records, shipping records or convict records.

As luck would have it I was able to make personal contact with the late Clare STERNBECK who prepared certificates requested from Singleton parish and so began what was almost three years of correspondence and further personal contacts. Clare took the problem very much to heart and sent me numerous letters of possible leads and contacts. As she worked purely as a volunteer I was able to send her periodic supplies of writing paper, envelopes and stamps so that she wasn’t out of pocket. I was on the verge of abandoning the project in 1986 when in the day’s mail was a rather grubby envelope addressed in pencil containing a letter written also in pencil on a piece of white butcher’s paper obviously torn from a parcel of meat. It transpired that Clare had called at the church on her way home from shopping to check some other matter and stumbled upon the solution to my problem while turning a page in a register. She was so excited to let me know that she scribbled a message on what was available in order to catch the afternoon mail. The following day another letter arrived written and presented in Clare’s usual impeccable style.

The hasty note identified three baptisms recorded at Whittingham Catholic Church to Daniel FANNING and Mary KAIN…..viz :-

Joseph FANNING born 12/ 7/1850

Daniel FANNING born 18/12/1851

David FANNING born 23/ 9/1853

There were so many matching or nearly matching factors involved (Mary KAIN v Mary CAIN , Joseph born 12/7/1850 and a brother David) that I had little hesitation in accepting Joseph FANNING as my probable grandfather. The next step was “What does it all mean?”.

Daniel FANNING was easily identified as former convict then on a Conditional Pardon but who was Mary KAIN? As with Mary CAIN there were no references in BD&M records, Immigration Records or Convict Records. I had heard that many problems arose in the early days of the Colony when names and places were recorded using phonetic spelling so I contacted some Irish people to see what names they could suggest sounding like KAIN or CAIN. A popular choice was KEANE. Back to the State Archives and there was a Mary KEANE, an Assisted Unmarried Female Immigrant, a house and laundry maid, who arrived per Royal Consort on 13th July,1840. She was able to read but not write as was quite typical of some Catholics who only had the benefit of “hedge schooling”. She was aged 24 and came from Belfast and was the daughter of John KEANE, a ship’s carpenter (deceased) and Mary KEANE (living).

State Archive records indicated that Mary married a certain Andrew RYAN. It seems that Mary struck up a relationship with a convict, Andrew RYAN, born 14th June, 1810 in Booterstown a suburb of Dublin, tried in Dublin 29th August, 1829 for highway robbery, sentenced to transportation for life and arrived in Sydney 26th April,1830 on board Forth(1). They had a son Matthew (ex nuptial) on 25th December, 1841. Convicts required permission to marry and a prerequisite was a Ticket of Leave which was granted on 14th November, 1842. Permission to Marry was granted on 2nd December,1842 and they were married on 9th January,1843.

According to BD&M records Mary and Andrew had a daughter Bridget on 25th May, 1847 and their son Matthew died on 23rd November, 1848. Andrew’s Conditional Pardon was granted on 13th September.1847. Mary and Andrew appear to have parted company soon after Matthew’s death.

Mary RYAN (nee KEANE) then seems to have got herself and the infant Bridget to Scotts Flat where she entered into a relationship with Daniel FANNING.

Mary Ryan Nee Keane

Now, who was Joseph RYAN the supposed father of my grandfather? He probably didn’t exist. He was invented to provide some respectability to the family in an era when de facto relationships and ex nuptial births were severely frowned upon. My real great grandfather was Daniel FANNING.

To complete verification of the family of Joseph and Anne RYAN I searched BD&M indexes and identified all except for the eldest, Mary Joseph. On a whim I searched for children of Joseph and Anne FANNING and guess what? I got the first six members of the RYAN family as shown in “The RYAN Family Tree”. Numbers 2 to 6 had the same registration numbers as the FANNINGS. The entries for the RYANS as recorded in the Pioneer Index have the letter “R” in the cross reference field.

Using sources which I cannot reveal I discovered that the second to sixth children were initially registered as FANNINGS and reregistered in 1904 as RYANS thus explaining the same registration numbers for apparently different people. Separate letters were written in Latin with an English translation for each of the five in which my grandfather stated that he had originally registered the five births as FANNINGS in honour of his step-father (who didn’t exist) . These letters are pasted in the old BD&M registers. Mary Joseph is recorded in the death records as Mary Joseph FANNING. Did Joseph FANNING/RYAN perpetuate a myth or had his mother told a story?

We will now return to Daniel FANNING. He was convicted at the Easter Assizes in Clonmel Co. Tipperary on the 17th March, 1836 of the manslaughter of James Long at Thurles on 3rd October,1835. He was sentenced to transportation for life and arrived in Sydney on board Waterloo(4) on 7th September, 1836 where he was assigned to Samuel CLIFT initially at West Maitland and subsequently at Patricks Plains.

Daniel FANNING disappeared from all public reference in 1853. A Daniel FANNING was found dead on the side of the road at Butlers Falls near Dubbo in 1864. After hours and hours of research he was ruled out as being our Daniel FANNING. Lots of avenues were pursued including a request published in the Tipperary Star, checking outgoing shipping records and interstate death records all to no avail.

We will now leave Daniel FANNING on hold for a moment while a major player in this saga is introduced.

In the early 1990s while browsing convict records on the internet I found that a D. LIEPINS was noted as searching a convict Andrew RYAN. I made contact and although we have never met personally Dale has become a great friend. We have exchanged phone calls, letters, e-mails, you name it ever since. Dale’s interest was an ancestor Mary Anne RYAN who was identified on her marriage certificate as being the daughter of Andrew RYAN and Mary RHODES when she married John SEMPLE. Dale and her mother before her had been searching in vain for Mary RHODES for some years.

After establishing that our families were connected we exchanged data and joined forces for the next sixteen years and still counting. I would not have progressed to this stage without Dale. She has enquired and written letters hither and yon and obtained certificates and newspaper cuttings from near and far, all of which she has willingly made available to me.

Mary RYAN (KEANE) moved to Gunnenbene near Carroll with her daughter Bridget after Bridget’s marriage to Martin FITZGERALD.

Bridget Fitzgerald nee Ryan

Mary died on 27th September, 1896 and her death certificate indicates two sons (Joseph and David) and one daughter, Bridget, living and two sons (Matthew and Daniel) and one unnamed daughter deceased. I had previously recorded Daniel as deceased at an early age but the registration number recorded at the time, 162-1930, is now proving difficult to match. The question is “who was the second daughter?”.

Over the years we searched for and eliminated every Mary RHODES born in the colony, immigrated to Australia or transported to Australia as a Convict. It was now back to square one and recheck everything. I noticed that Mary Anne SEMPLE died in 1888 thus predeceasing Mary RYAN. I then took the view that Mary Anne RYAN was the daughter of Mary KEANE not Mary RHODES. There was nothing in the records to indicate this but I felt that the birth/baptism had not been recorded or had fallen through the cracks. Going on her age at marriage I determined that she would have been born in 1842 or 1843 and like her siblings would have been baptised in a Catholic Church. I went through all the appropriate microfilms at Bankstown Library checking for breaks in the sequence of Baptism returns. Eureka!!! There it was. An eighteen month sequence of baptism notifications from the Parish of St. James was missing. When contacted, the Archivist at St. Marys Cathedral would not make the original records available but suggested that I approach the Society of Australian Genealogists who had a copy of the records. In the fullness of time and the payment of a fee a letter arrived from SAG containing a photocopy of the baptism of a Mary Anne RYAN, born 26th December, 1843, the daughter of Henry RYAN and Mary KEANE.

The fickle finger of fate intruded again. One of the sponsors was a Henry BYRNE and as this was the last of many baptisms on that day we must allow the priest a little inattention as he wrote the register up at the end of a long day and accept that he wrote Henry when he meant Andrew. The parents of Mary Anne were noted as living in Harrington St. Sydney which was the address of Andrew and Mary.

Who was Mary RHODES? My opinion is that Mary RHODES was Andrew RYAN’S partner or housekeeper. After parting from his wife Andrew and the five year old Mary Anne went initially to Tambaroora, a gold mining village near Sofala and then to Sofala where Mary Anne was married and Andrew went on to Rylstone where he died. Contemporary records suggest that the name “Mary RHODES” was fairly common in the Mudgee/Rylstone area and Andrew would have needed a woman’s touch to raise a young girl.

And now patient reader we have the big drum roll. Within two months of the Mary Anne RYAN episode I received a late night phone call from Dale LIEPINS who was in a state of high excitement. She had just arrived home from holidays and was checking her mail. Unbeknown to me she had seen the name Daniel FANNING in a listing of Intestate Estates and paid the fee for a copy of the Probate Papers. IT WAS HIM. 61 pages of gold nuggets that researchers only dream about. I won’t bore the reader with the whole document but will note the significant items.

Daniel FANNING and Mary RYAN were partners as tenant farmers at Scotts Flat. Daniel fell from a horse on 16th February, 1853 and died three days later without regaining consciousness. There is no record of his death although an inquest was held. We do know the doctor’s name, the cost of the coffin, the cost of crepe and calico used to line the coffin, who dug the grave and how much he was paid. A nephew visited from Sydney not long after Daniel’s death and we know from him that Daniel came from Borrisaleigh in Tipperary and that he had four brothers. Mary was seven weeks pregnant with David at the time. One item in the papers confirms all speculations that we had made. In an affidavit Mary states that she was married to Andrew RYAN, that they lived in Harrington St, Sydney near the old Customs House and that she “left Andrew RYAN because he dissipated the means of maintenance of herself and her family through drunkenness”.

All through the probate papers Mary is referred to only as Mrs RYAN and the children referred to as Bridget RYAN, Joseph FANNING and Daniel FANNING. One can only assume that the young children being in the care of a single mother named Mrs RYAN soon became known as RYANS.

The moral of this little story is “ don’t give up, there is an answer somewhere so keep searching and let your imagination run free”.

The following letter is to the local magistrate, George Ryan, from the parish priest of Drom and Inch, Father Thomas Mullany, advising against showing Dandy any leniency.

Drom

17th April,1836

My Dear Sir,

I beg to inform you, that it is currently reported, that a memorial to his excellency is about being presented, in favour of the celebrated Daniel or Dandy Fanning, now under sentence of transportation for the manslaughter of Long at the last assizes of Clonmel: this is not the first, second or third homicide, in which he has been concerned, all of which as resident Magistrate in this locality you should be aware of—- I am convinced a greater calamity could not happen in our parishes, with respect to public peace, and order than the return of this notoriously audacious character. Nay the peace of the country in a circumference of ten miles would be endangered.

I submit to you, whether it be not a public duty to apprize the government of the real character of this man, and warn them of the consequences, likely to result from an exercise of the prerogative in favour of so unworthy, and destructive a character.

Trusting you will pardon this liberty,

I have the honour to be

Your most obdt hble servant

Thos Mullany P.P.

Information on the Fitzgerald Family of Martin and Bridget Fitzgerald nee Ryan:

THE FITZGERALDS

Bridget Ryan (daughter of Andrew Ryan And Mary Keane) married Martin Edward Fitzgerald at Singleton on 21st April, 1869. Martin arrived in Sydney on board David McIver with his parents and siblings on19th May, 1852 as Assisted Immigrants. The family consisted of :-

Michael Fitzgerald aged 50 born 1801 at Roscrea, Co Tipperary to John Fitzgerald and Margaret Connors and

Margaret Connors his wife whom he married in Tipperary in 1835. She was 34 on arrival in Australia and was born in 1818 to Andrew and Mary Connors at Borrisaleigh Co Tipperary. Is it a coincidence that Daniel Fannings family came from Borrisaleigh? The children were…………

Margaret born 1838 aged 14 on arrival

Martin Edward born 1840 aged 12 on arrival

John Henry born 1842 aged 10 on arrival

Andrew born 1845 aged 7 on arrival

William born 1847 aged 5 on arrival

The 5 children were all baptised at the parish of Dunkerrin near Roscrea. (Joan Flood has their baptismal certificates.)

Travelling with the Fitzgeralds was a Margaret Kelly an orphan niece of Margaret Fitzgerald. The younger Margaret’s parents died during the great Potato Famine

The family apparently went straight to Scotts Flat travelling by boat to Morpeth and then overland by foot or cart. Michael died within 6 months of arrival (V18521354 118/1852). There is a headstone for Michael and Margaret in the old Singleton cemetery.

Margaret married Patrick O’Brien 1866/2852

Andrew married Ellen Mahoney 1866/2899

John married Mary A Connors 1868/3119

William married Elizabeth Gardner 1878/1878

Margaret married Patrick O’Brien 1866/2852

Married Thomas Tydd (2) 1859/2685

Martin and Bridget went to an area known as Gunnenbene on the Namoi River in !869 where he took up his first block…Conditional Purchase 69/1093 being Portion 1 , Parish of Cunnenbeme County Darling. This seems to have been his

sole holding until 1872 when he acquired the adjacent Portion 49 of 50 acres ex roads as Additional Conditional Purchase 72/7966.

Indications are that Martin and Bridget were among the very first settlers in the area because his selection is Portion 1 and no other Conditional Purchasers of !869 or earlier are obvious on the Parish maps.

Martin appears to have moved some number of miles to the North West of the Parish in 1891 when he acquired a contiguous area comprising the following :-

Portion 160 of 733 acres 1rood 20 perches ex roads and

Portion 121 of 82 acres both forming Conditional Lease 91/13

Portion 122 and Potion 123 each of 160 acres together forming Conditional Purchase 91/33

Portion 3 of 160 acres as Additional Conditional Purchase 91/81

NOTE Terms of a Conditional Purchase are 25% deposit and annual instalments of 5% of the Capital Value including interest @ 2.5% pa on the outstanding balance which usually means payment complete in 28 years.

Conditional Leases were normally leases in perpetuity with an annual rental of twopence per acre per annum with the right to convert to a Conditional Purchase at any time at one pound per acre.

Additional Conditional Purchases were available to holders of Original Conditional Purchases at no more than one pound per acre but often at reduced rates such as 6 shillings and 8 pence per acre.

Patrick O’Brien acquired 2 blocks in the Parish of Gunnenbeme adjacent to Martin Fitzgerald. Patrick also obtained a number of blocks in the nearby Parish of Keepit abutting the very large holdings of his brother-in-law John Henry Fitzgerald. Andrew Fitzgerald also took up land in the Keepit area alongside his brother. William remained at Scotts Flat as a dairy farmer.

Fanning Baptism Records in Borrisoleigh Parish, Co Tipperary, Ireland, 1814- 1881

Borrisoleigh Catholic Parish Co Tipperary Ireland

These Baptism records are from the National Library of Ireland’s online records.

They cover the period 1814 to 1881 in the Parish of Borrisoleigh in the Diocese of Cashel & Emly, Co Tipperary Ireland.

Rootsireland (a very good subscription site) also has Baptism records for this parish from 1814 to 1900. It has a search facility.

Civil birth records over 100 years from 1864 are online free at irishgenealogy.ie

This means that from 1864 it should be possible to find a church Baptism record as well as a civil birth record.

In this parish nick names are given which is unusual and interesting, for example, Peggy for Margaret and Ned for Edward. If you are unsure of what the legal name is look in this section on Rootsireland.

In this parish the priests did not put lots of crosses and comments to indicate moral failings. There were some illegitimate births noted as such but not the labeling of “Bastard” so common in parishes like Drom & Inch.

Borrisoleigh also has an interesting site for the area borrisoleigh.ie

I have also included baptisms with a Fanning godparent. In this parish addresses were given, which is unusual and a bonus, so it is possible to work out where family groups lived. The most numerous Fanning family lived in the townland of Knockahorna.

I noticed that from the time of William and Sarah’s marriage in 1857 within three days two other Guidera marriages had taken place.

Between Feb 1857 and Feb 1863, a total of eight Guideras had married. I wonder if these marriages were prior to emigration.

After 1867 there were so few marriages one wonders if this was the result of the famine and mass emigration from this parish.

Priests’ Comments on Baptism and Marriage Records, Co Tipperary, Ireland

As I trawled through many baptism and marriage records my interest was taken by anything out of the ordinary.

Calling children born out of wedlock bastards was common.

14 April 1850 Holycross/Ballycahill Parish Co Tipperary
Baptism In Drom & Inch Parish April 1833
Drom & Inch 1839

1840 Baptism Drom & Inch
Illegitimate child of a Protestant father 1854 Drom & Inch Parish

The baptism records have illeg (illegitimate) clearly marked and often the father’s address and occupation. One priest, no doubt gleefully, pointed out the father was the son of the Protestant pastor!

Priest’s comment on baptism record Feb 1840 Thurles Parish Not sure what he was referring to.
Note the cross next to the record. 1864 Holycross

Some of the priests marked the record with the word bastard in large letters!  Most of the records for illegitimate children have a large cross next to them.

1833 Thurles Parish. Priest’s comments re the father of this illegitimate child.

One kinder priest has entered such a birth as a “natural birth” but this compassion is rare.

Pointing the finger! 1842 Drom & Inch Parish
“Pater Dubious” Drom & Inch Parish 1843

A couple of baptism records have the word “dub” which puzzled me, until I came across the full word “dubious”. The priest believes the father on the certificate is not the actual father.

priest’s comments “doubtful” & “stranger” 1833

At the beginning of the baptism records for Loughmore Parish on the side of the first page is written the codes used to designate births out of wedlock etc. While shocking it is less so than the words”bastard” on many other records. But it shows the extent to which the priests monitored the lives and morals of their parishioners.

Not all parish records have crosses and comments it seems to have been very much up to the priest. Drom & Inch Parish stands out for the numerous condemnatory crosses and comments whereas in Borrisoleigh occassionally records are marked with a cross or designated “illegitimate” but the whole tone is a lot friendlier.

+ children born out of wedlock; / where parents married after the child’s birth; + where either of the parents was an adulterer;o the person who violated the marriage bed. Marks placed on baptism records by the priest in Loughmore Paris from 1798

Travellers are mentioned. Are they gypsies?

“Viatoros” written on the Thurles Baptism record meaning pilgrim or wanderer or other name for traveler or vagrant?
“vagrants of uncertain residence” Moyne Parish 18 June 1822

The address of the father of an illegitimate child was often included or their occupation.

Fanning Baptism Records for Dunkerrin Parish, Co Tipperary & Co Offaly, Ireland, 1820-1873

Moneygall (Dunkerrin ) Catholic Parish Co Tipperary Ireland

Fanning baptism records for Dunkerrin Parish (Moneygall & Barna): 1820-June 1873.

Variant forms of the parish name are Barna, Moneygall & Barna  and Dunkerrin.

The parish is in Co Tipperary & Co Offaly, (Kings Co) in the Diocese of Killaloe.

These records are from the National Library of Ireland’s site.

I looked through these baptism records as William Fanning and his brother Philip married two Eviston women, most likely sisters, from Loughmore Parish.

My Fannings are related to the Evistons. So I was interested to see if there might be  a connection to the Fannings from Lissaroon. I couldn’t find anything to indicate this other than Martin Eviston’s involvement.

Philip Fanning married Mary Eviston on 31 Jan 1822 in Loughmore Parish. William Fanning married Ellen Eviston on 27 Jan 1825 also in Loughmore Parish.

Rootsireland has baptism records for this parish from 1820 to 1911 and irishgenealogy.ie has civil birth records from 1864.

The main Fanning families in this parish seem to have lived in Castlerone.

Cicil townlands for this parish at the time of the Tithe Applotment Books, 1823-1837: Army Hill,Ballinakill,Ballymoheen, Ballynamoe, Ballyrehy, Ballyrickeen, Ballyslea, Ballystanly, Barna, Big Crimlin, Boherna, Bouladuff, Bruckerra, Burrow, Busherstown Demesnor, Busherstown Hill, Castleroane, Castletown Glebe, Clashagad, Clayduff, Clonbrennan, Clonegana, Clonemohan, Clyduff, Coolroe, Corrageen, Couracleesan, Couracleevan, Dromroe, Dunherrin, Dunkerrin, Dunkerron, Eyrecourt, Franckfort, Franckfort Demesne, Glascloon, Glebe Lands, Gurteen, Honeymount, Kilemane, Lisdavouck, Lisduff, Little Crimlin, Loughane, Lyre, Milltown Mill, Moate,Moate Quarter, Montore, Mount Heaton, Myrtle Lodge, Myrtlegrove, Old Deer Park, Plantations, Rathnavogue, Rutland, Stump Farm, Summerhill, Utrench Lands (Lyre)

Fanning Marriage Records in Dunkerrin Parish, Co Tipperary & Co Offaly, 1820-1875

Moneygall (Dunkerrin ) Catholic Parish Co Tipperary Ireland

Fanning marriage records for Dunkerrin Parish (Moneygall & Barna): 1820-June 1875.

Variant forms of the parish name are Barna, Moneygall & Barna  and Dunkerrin.

The parish is in Co Tipperary & Co Offaly.

These records are form the National Library of Ireland’s site.

I looked through these marriage records as William Fanning and his brother Philip married two Eviston women, most likely sisters, from Loughmore Parish.

My Fannings are related to the Evistons. I was interested to see if there might be  a connection to the Fannings from Lissaroon. I couldn’t find anything to indicate this other than Martin Eviston’s involvement.

Philip Fanning married Mary Eviston on 31 Jan 1822 in Loughmore Parish. William Fanning married Ellen Eviston on 27 Jan 1825 also in Loughmore Parish.

Rootsireland has marriage records for this parish from 1820 to 1911 and irishgenealogy.ie has civil marriage records from 1864.

The main Fanning families in this parish seem to have lived in Castlerone.
