WILLIAM LONNERGAN Age 59 Single Occupation Parish Priest Married Children and G.Children Lodgers and Inmates JAMES ARCHBOLD Age 13 Single Servants and Apprentices MARY HAYDEN Age 30 Single Michael Coady kindly added the following information regarding Fr. WILLIAM LONNERGAN the Parish Priest of Carrick Beg. He was amongst a large number of people arbitrarily arrested by the notorious High Sheriff of Tipperary, THOMAS JUDKIN FITZGERALD on 22nd June 1798. Some were flogged for "Confessions" Fr. LONNERGAN died suddenly at his home on Easter Monday 2nd April 1804. Some other notes that Michael added may help with the Census Information and with the History of Carrick around the time it was taken. The unofficial 1799 Census of Carrick on Suir has been called "the earliest complete census still extant for anywhere in Ireland" It was compiled by WILL MORTON PITT, (Military officer, demographer and author, originally of Corfe Castle, Dorset) FRANCES WHITE (local merchant) and PATRICK LYNCH (Gaelic scholar, author and schoolmaster). Given ages need to be treated with caution and religion is assumed to be Roman Catholic unless otherwise indicated. Multiple occupancy of houses was common in what was in 1799 an overcrowded town, with the secondary families listed under "Lodgers and Inmates". Carrick Mor is on the northern side of the river and Carrick Beg on the southern side. The 1799 enumeration encompassed the town suburbs to the point where continuous rows or clusters of houses ceased. Although Parish boundaries in the case of both Carrick Mor and Carrick Beg extended several miles into the surrounding countryside the "Census is confined to the town itself and lists nobody beyond its limits" The manufacture of woollen cloth was the primary economic activity which brought Carrick on Suir to a peak of population and prosperity in the 18th Century. It was already in decline in 1799. Many occupations (eg Scribler, Shearman, Jenny Spinner, Weaver) were allied to the woollen trade. Women's occupations were not usually listed - many were Spinners. The census gives no linguistic information but it is safe to assume that most people still spoke Gaelic as the common vernacular in 1799. Trade with and migration to Newfoundland and eastern Canada from the downriver port of Waterford was also an important part of the local economy until about 1840. The original (unpublished and unindexed) manuscript is at The British Library. A full facsimile copy is held at Carrick on Suir Heritage centre, the complete census has also been transferred to Database by Dick Denny and Michael Coady. The census lists 10,907 people, (twice the present population, and not including the military garrison) with their ages, marital status, occupations and addresses.
