The Graveyards of The Parish (part 1)


Seamus Seery

This list of graveyard memorials includes Trinity, St. Mary's Taghmon (sometimes referred to locally as 'Our Lady's), Kilgarvan and The Batt Memorial in Coolaw. Every detail is listed as it appears on the headstones. In some cases this means that townlands are spelled in an unusual fashion - as are some surnames. Where there is a question mark (?) it means that the legend is indicipherable. The information from some headstones which are listed in the collections of the late Brian Cantwell have since become weather worn and difficult to decipher. Where this occurs we have included the entries directly from Cantwell.

Brian Cantwell recorded all dates up to 1880. This collection contains all graveyard inscriptions up to the present day.

BATT OBELISK

The following is a transcript of the Lord Walter Fitzgerald account in the J. Memorial Association Vol. VIII, 2 1910 under the heading Taghmon, 'The Batt Burial Place'.

A short distance to the South East of Taghmon Village, at an angle formed by the road leading to Harpurstown there is a small square gateless and walled in enclosure, in the centre of which is a plain Granite Obelisk. This enclosure was the burial place of several members of the Batt family, the first of whom was a New Ross merchant at the commencement of the Eighteenth Century. His son Samuel acquired property in the County and settled down at Ozier Hill on the Townland of Coolaw close to Taghmon. The reason for burying in this spot, from 1741 to 1840 and not in the burial ground at the Protestant Church is unaccountable. Into the four sides of the base of the Obelisk above mentioned are inserted tablets of white marble bearing the following inscriptions.

ON THE WEST SIDE

Here lies the body of Thomas Batt Esq, of Ozier Hill, son of Samuel Batt Esq. who died February the 15th 1741. He married in 1713 Jane daughter of Thomas Devereux Esq. She died February 11th 1745 and was also buried here as were her daughters Sarah, Ann and Jane.

ON THE NORTH SIDE

Here lies the body of Samuel Batt Esq, of Ozier Hill, eldest son of Thomas Batt Esq who died February 9th 1765 aged 31 years also his wife Jane and their daughter Anne Batt who died January 9th 1815 aged 65 years.

ON THE EAST SIDE

Here lies the body of Robert Batt Esq, of Ozier Hill, formerly Captain in the 18th Regiment. He was the youngest son of Thomas Batt Esq, of Ozier Hill and died the 29th of October 1783 aged 54 years.

ON THE SOUTH SIDE

Sacred to the Memory of Narcissus Batt Esq, of Purdysburn in the County of Down. He was the eldest son of Captain Robert Batt of Ozier Hill and died 27th January 1840 aged 72 years.

An account of this family now of Purdysburn, near Belfast is given in Burkes Landed Gentry.
