DNA: We have a DNA match with Mr. Brian Beeley who has traced his ancestry back to Mary Jane McGowan born in about 1850 with father William McGowan. We found a William McGowan who married Sarah Hadden in Portadown Parish, Armagh on March 21, 1849. Considering the surnames, geographical location and DNA match it seems probable that the DNA match is the "Hadden connection".

We also have an FTDNA and Ancestry.com DNA match with Theresa McCormick Liewer who says, "My great-grandfather, John Hadden, was born in Ireland in 1866... My Hadden's lived in County Armagh, near Newry and Bessbrook. John's parents were Robert Hadden and Mary Jane Friar and Robert's father was Hugh Hadden. I think that a brother of Robert, also named Hugh Hadden, came to Chicopee, Massachusetts with his family... The residence of Robert Hadden when he married in 1862 was Keady Beg in the civil parish of Loughilly. That puts him just south of Markethill which supports the DNA match." See also Hadden Family - Theresa Liewer, Ankeny, Iowa

We now have another Ancestry.com DNA match with N.E. who has Robert Hadden and Mary Jane Friar (married Sept 5, 1862 in Newry) in their tree.

1609 ..........

The Plantation of Markethill and District

The most successful Plantation of Ulster began in 1609. This plan was made possible after nine years war, mainly in Ulster, with the final conquest of Ireland in 1603. Gradually after this, in 1607, came the Flight of the Earls - the Earls of Tyrone and Tyrconnell (Donegal) - which was followed in 1609 by James l's confiscation of Counties Derry, Donegal, Tyrone, Armagh, Fermanagh and Cavan. Monaghan was excluded because the Irish there had been loyal to England, while Antrim and Down were left out, because many British - especially Scots - had settled there.

Over three million acres, including bog, marsh and mountain were confiscated, and of this only five hundred and ten thousand acres of the best land was sent aside for settlement. The plan was to divide the land into lots of one thousand, one thousand five hundred and two thousand acres each and to distribute these to the incoming settlers, upon the observance of certain conditions.

Among these early settlers were Henry Acheson (Atchinson), a Scot, who obtained one of the grants of land consisting of one thousand acres, on 30th. July 1610. Mr. Acheson built a stone "bawn" or "fort" at Carrickbane and settled eighteen Scottish families.

Sir James Douglas (Dowglasse) obtained the grant of two thousand acres and the Manor of Cloncarney, on 23rd. July 1610. Sir James disposed of his interest in this property to the above mentioned Henry Acheson during 1611, who in turn sold it to his brother Archibald. Archibald built a strong castle in 1617 and placed thirty-six British families, who were able to muster one hundred and forty-eight armed men. He built a town around his castle of Cloncarney in which he settled thirty more British families, this town was the origin of the present Markethill.

Up to 1628 Henry Acheson owned the one thousand acres before described, he sold this property to Archibald, who was a former Secretary of State for Scotland and was subsequently created a Baronet and from whom the earls of  Gosford are directly descended.

From The Plantation of Markethill and District

A Colony of Scots at Markethill

A colony of Scots settled at Markethill in 1619 by John Henry Acheson was more successful with a ‘bawn of clay and stone …..and they are able to make thirty men at arms’. 2 The area around Creggan was able to escape the ravages of plantation until Cromwellian times when the lands of Henry O’ Neill were confiscated and Henry transplanted to Connacht. A large part of his estate (6,000 acres) was granted, in lieu of wages to Thomas Ball, a Cromwellian officer.

From Loyalism in Fews from 17th Century

 

1641 ..........

Markethill and the surrounding district was much affected by the rebellion of 1641. The Church at Mullabrack was damaged or destroyed and the rector murdered. The bawn on the Gosford estate was reputedly destroyed at this time and no replacement dwelling was built until the turn of the century. The Manor House when it was built was a rambling building with multiple reception rooms and bedrooms and an expansive forecourt where the Acheson ladies liked to entertain their society friends. Farm buildings in what is now the waterwheel car park surrounded the Manor House. The water to power the wheel came from an underground mill course from the ponds, which have long since been made into ornamental features. The entrance to the estate at this time was via the stone archway adjacent to the ponds.

1710 ..........

Freeholders' records are lists of people entitled to vote, or of people who voted, at elections. A freeholder was a man who owned his land outright (in fee) or who held it by lease which could be for one or more lives (for example, his own life or for the lives of other people named in the lease). From 1727 to 1793 only Protestants with a freehold worth at least 40 shillings a year were legally permitted to vote. Between 1793 and 1829 both Protestants and Catholics with 40 shilling freeholds could vote, but in 1829 the franchise level was increased to 10 pounds, so 40 shilling freeholders were no longer allowed to vote. This last measure increased the influence of landlords by effectively confining membership of Parliament to the propertied or monied classes. - from the Public Record Office of Northern Ireland

In 1725, William and James Hadden were registered on the Freeholders Record for Sir Arthur Acheson

Sir Arthur Acheson 5th Baronet (26 January 1688 - 8 February 1748) was an Irish politician and baronet. The son of Sir Nicholas Acheson, 4th Baronet, he succeeded to the baronetcy upon the death of his father. In 1728, he was appointed High Sheriff of Armagh.[1] Acheson sat in the Irish House of Commons for Mullingar from 1727 until his death in 1748. - From Wikipedia

Good cause I have to sing and vapour,
For I am the landlord to the Drapier;
He, that of every ear's the charmer,
Now condescends to be my farmer...

1796 ..........

There was a William Hadden living in the Parish of Ballymore in the Flax Grower Roster for County Armagh in 1796 and a William Orr living in the neighbouring Parish of Mullaghbrack.

 

1806 ..........

Earl of Gosford is a title in the Peerage of Ireland. It was created in 1806 for Arthur Acheson, 2nd Viscount Gosford. The Acheson family descends from the Scottish statesman Sir Archibald Acheson, 1st Baronet of Edinburgh, who later settled in Markethill, County Armagh. He served as Solicitor General for Scotland, as a Senator of Justice (with the title Lord Glencairnie), as an Extraordinary Lord of Session and as Secretary of State for Scotland. In 1628 he was created a Baronet, of Glencairny in the County of Armagh, in the Baronetage of Nova Scotia, with remainder to his heirs male whatsoever. He was succeeded by his son from his first marriage, the second Baronet. He died married but childless at an early age and was succeeded by his half-brother, the third Baronet.

His son, the fourth Baronet, represented County Armagh in the Irish House of Commons. On his death the title passed to his son, the fifth Baronet. He sat as Member of the Irish Parliament for Mullingar. His son, the sixth Baronet, represented Dublin University and Enniskillen in the Irish House of Commons. In 1776 he was raised to the Peerage of Ireland as Baron Gosford, of Market Hill in the County of Armagh, and in 1785 he was further honoured when he was made Viscount Gosford, of Market Hill in the County of Armagh, also in the Peerage of Ireland.

MARKETHILL, a market and post-town, partly in the parish of MULLAGHBRACK, and partly in the district of KILCLUNEY, barony of LOWER FEWS, county of ARMAGH, and province of ULSTER, 5 1/2 miles (E.) from Armagh, on the mail coach road to Newry, and 60 miles (N. by W.) from Dublin; containing 1043 inhabitants, and comprising 195 houses. It consists of one principal street, from which two others diverge, and is situated in the midst of a fertile country, the extensive demesne and splendid castle of Gosford, the property of Viscount Gosford, adding greatly to its beauty. Two miles to the south-west is the Vicar's Cairn, or Carricktole, commanding a most extensive and beautiful view. Dean Swift in his writings notices a favourite spot here, which he named Draper's Hill; it is now within Lord Gosford's demesne. This is a thriving town, having more than doubled its inhabitants and houses within the last ten years; it has an excellent market on Friday, and a fair on the third Friday in each month for cattle and pigs: petty sessions are held every Friday, and quarter sessions for the county, alternately with Ballybot, in a neat sessions-house. The staff of the Armagh militia is at this town; among their muniments is deposited the stand of colours taken by them from the French at Ballynamuck, in 1798. It is a constabulary police station; and here is a small prison, with separate cells for males and females. There are large meeting-houses for Presbyterians of the Synod of Ulster and the Associate Synod, and one for Wesleyan Methodists, also a national school and a dispensary. -- See MULLAGHBRACK. - from A Topographical Dictionary of Ireland, By Samuel Lewis, 1837

KILCLUNEY,or KILCLOONEY, a district parish, partly in the barony of Lower Orior, but chiefly in that of Lower Fews, county of Armagh, and province of Ulster, 2 miles (S.W.) from Markethill, on the road from Newry to Armagh; containing 7627 inhabitants.  It was constituted, in 1792, by disuniting 22 townlands from the parish of Mullaghbrack, and comprises, according to the Ordnance Survey, 12,833¼ statute acres, of which 3109 are heath and bog, and the remainder in a high state of cultivation.  At Carricklane is a quarry of good clay-slate, from which was raised the stone for building Gosford Castle.  Lead ore has also been found in considerable quantities, and there are indications of coal.  The weaving of linen and cotton cloth is carried on.  It is in the diocese of Armagh, and on its separation from Mullaghbrack, a perpetual curacy, in the gift of the Prebendary of Mullaghbrack, was instituted, under the provisions of an act of the 7th of Geo. III.; and a church was built at Glassdrummond, a plain neat edifice, for the erection of which the late Board of First Fruits gave £500.  The glebe-house, towards which the same Board granted £450 as a gift and £50 as a loan, is a handsome building, situated on a glebe of 22 acres.  In the R.C. divisions the parish forms part of the union or district of Lisnadill, or Ballymacnab; the chapel is a large and handsome edifice at Clady.  There are two places of worship for Presbyterians in connection with the Seceding synod, one of the first class at Redrock, the other at Ballylane.  There are eight public schools, some of which are aided by donations from the Rev. Dr. Blacker, others by Lords Charlemont and Gosford, and the parochial school by the prebendary and perpetual curate; they afford instruction to about 680 children.  Some vestiges yet exist of the old church of Kilcluney, which was burnt in 1641, and also of a bawn built in 1619 by H. Achison, Esq., which was destroyed at the same time.  Cairn-amnhanaghan, or “The Vicar’s Cairn”, which is noticed more particularly under the head of Mullaghbrack, is in this district.  [The Mullaghbrack head adds the following:  "On the estate of Lord Charlemont is a cairn, called Cairnamnhanaghan, or “the monk’s cairn”, a conical heap of stones still covering more than two acres, though much reduced by the peasantry, who have carried away many of the stones for building, a practice now prohibited by the proprietor."] - From A Topographical Dictionary of Ireland” by Samuel Lewis, 1837

 

1827 ..........

Ballylane Survey by the Earl of Charlemont (1827)

In 1827, Francis William Caulfeild, 5th Viscount Charlemont and 2nd Earl of Charlemont, had a survey taken of many of his properties in County Armagh and Count Tyrone.  For Ballylane, the result was a wonderful schedule of every tenant and subtenant in the townland, with a description and the area of each parcel.  Each parcel was numbered, and there is a large matching numbered map of Ballylane showing precisely the boundaries of each tenant's parcel(s).  From Ballylane Townland

This survey indicates lands in lease to James and William Hadden with tenants Robert Cromwell, Thomas McWhitter, Samuel Littlewood, Robert Hadden, Sr., Robert Hadden, Jr. and Samuel Hadden.

1845 ..........

- The Irish Potato Famine -

During the summer of 1845, a "blight of unusual character" devastated Ireland's potato crop, the basic staple in the Irish diet. A few days after potatoes were dug from the ground, they began to turn into a slimy, decaying, blackish "mass of rottenness." Expert panels convened to investigate the blight's cause suggested that it was the result of "static electricity" or the smoke that billowed from railroad locomotives or the "mortiferous vapours" rising from underground volcanoes. In fact, the cause was a fungus that had traveled from Mexico to Ireland.

"Famine fever"--cholera, dysentery, scurvy, typhus, and infestations of lice--soon spread through the Irish countryside. Observers reported seeing children crying with pain and looking "like skeletons, their features sharpened with hunger and their limbs wasted, so that there was little left but bones." Masses of bodies were buried without coffins, a few inches below the soil.

Over the next ten years, more than 750,000 Irish died and another 2 million left their homeland for Great Britain, Canada, and the United States. Within five years, the Irish population was reduced by a quarter.

1847 ..........

The Griffith's Valuation of Ireland was published between 1847-1864. The Primary Valuation was the first full-scale valuation of property in Ireland. There is a Robert Littlewood in Drumorgan, Mullaghbrack Parish, Lower Fews, Armagh, and a William and John Littlewood in Cortamlat, Newtownhamilton, Upper fews, Armagh. In 1912, there are an Agnes and Eliza Littlewood from Cortamlet that attended the Clarkesbridge Presbyterian Church in Newtownhamilton.

Corr Tamhlachta "The round hill of the mass grave". Cortamlet is a townland of 760 statute acres 2 roods and 34 perches about three miles west of Newtownhamilton. It is bounded on the north by Armaghbreague (Keady Parish), on the north-east by Tullyvallen, on the south-east and south by Altnamackan and on the west by Muckno Parish in County Monaghan. In the Tithe Applotment Books of 1825 its total area is shown as 396 acres, 3 roods and 21 perches (Plantation Irish measure).

Weaver and Miners at Airdrie
from Chambers Edinburgh Journal 1850

"We had lately occasion to spend some time in the populous weaving and mining district of Airdrie in the west of Scotland. Nothing struck us more than the great longevity of many of the original inhabitants of the place, who in their old years have been subjected to all the privation consequent on low wages for the last twenty years. One of these we found to be above ninety years of age, and several others had reached the age of seventy or eighty. Some of these old men are paupers, and depend on the small pittance allowed them by the parish, amounting to about 4s. a month, and the casual charity of the people of the place. On the other hand, it is exceedingly rare to meet with a hale old man belonging to any other class - old men among the mining population are exceedingly rare.

The privations to which the handloom weavers have been subjected have been the means of making the most of their young men turn their attention to the more lucrative occupation of mining, so that the marriage of a weaver is rather a rare occurrence. The miners, however, are under no restraint in this respect, and the number of children belonging to them is sufficiently numerous to excite surprise, as well as forebodings of want and misery."
