Cork - Youghal - St Mary's, Parish Register 1665-1669

File contributed by:  C.Hunt. Typed by Frances Newberry


We have to thank the Editor of "St Mary's Parish Magazine"
Rev C. Stewart for the following very interesting and early
notices of christenings, marriages and burials.

'...There is a break of exactly ten years, as from the year
1684 to 1694, no entries occur in either births, deaths, or
marriages, a fact which is accounted for by the religious
and political troubles of the time, as there is no doubt
that the town  was, during a considerable part of that time,
held by the adherents of James II. The Protestant clergy
were ejected, and the Roman Catholic worship set up in St.
Mary's, as may be readily imagined. Very few of the family
names which occur the early part of the register, are now to
be found amongst the present residents of Youghal, but are
to be met with in abundance on the tombstones which cluster
around this venerable church, and which mark the
resting-places of men, many of whom bravely played their
part in a stirring and eventful age. However, on the very
first page, we were pleased to find two names, Allin and
Stoute, the descendants of which families still reside
amongst us.'

Apr-17  John Randen and Jone Davies
Jun-03  Francis Reade and Elizabeth Godwin*
*this family of Godwin were from Buckinghamshire. They came
to Ireland at an early period, for in anno 1316 we find John
Godin sovereign of the town of Kilkenny, and Peter Godin was
mayor in 1664. The family was a very ancient one in the
city. They settled in Youghal also, for we find Peter Golwin
served as baliff of this town in 1657. . He struck a
tradesman's token in the year 1658; on the obverse is a
ship, being the "ar.. of the borough of Youghall" (it is in
the British Museum). Perhaps when he put forth this token he
adopted the arms of this ancient town as commemorative of
his official career. The following epitaph is on his tomb (a
large limestone); original site unknown. The legend runs
round the margin of the stone, in capitals :—"Here lyeth the
body of Peter Godwin, burgess of this towne, who died 28 day
of Sept., anno Dom. 1660." The stone lay for some time in
the nave of the church, Youghal.

Sep-01  *Samuel, sonne of Samuel Haymon Merchant
Samuel Hayman was baliff of Youghal in 1666, and mayor 1670
and 1704. The Irish branch of this ancient family trace
descent from George Hayman, of Minehead, in Somersetshire,
who came to Ireland in the year 1629. The Hayman family
acquired lands in the County Cork, demised the South Abbey
lands to Samuel Hayman, gentleman, of Minehead,
Somersetshire. His eldest son, John Hayman, was M.P. for
Youghal in 1703-13, and mayor 1705, by the will of his
maternal grandfather, John Atkin, of Youghal, became
possessed of the historic house known as the Irish residence
of Sir Walter Raleigh, knt.  For upwards of one hundred and
fifty years it was the residence of the Hayman family, and
here Matthew Hayman was born, who for many years sat as
magistrate on the Youghal bench, and a well wisher to the
peace and prosperity of the town. He died at his residence,
South Abbey House, in the year 1867, at an advanced age. He
left two sons-the Rev. Samuel Hayman, Curate of Youghal, and
Rector of Douglas, Cork, a learned divine and an accurate
historian and antiquary; and Colonel Matthew Jones  Hayman,
of the 18th Royal Irish Regiment, and ___ean here.
