Thomas Shaw Sr.

M, b. before 1735, d. after 1798
     Thomas Shaw Sr. was born before 1735.1 He married an unknown person circa 1755. He died after 1798.1
     The infrequent occurance of the surname Shaw or its variants Shoe and Shew in the early Castledermot records leads me to believe that they are all derived from the same person - viz. Thomas Shaw Sr., who married about 1755. For certain, the Shaws of Castledermot town are definitely descended from Thomas Shaw Sr., who, along with his sons John and Thomas Jr. are mentioned in documents relating to the 1798 rebellion as being members of the United Irishmen. I believe that the Shaws of Ballyburn and later Knocknagee, are also descended from Thomas Shaw Sr., through another son, Laurence Shaw, who is known to be living in Ballyburn in 1795. Furthermore, the frequent use of the christian names Thomas and John, and most significantly, David, among the Shaws, also lead me to the same conclusion. Whereas the Shaws of Knocknagee were tenants of a small land holding and were relatively comfortable, the Shaws of Castledermot town would have lived in relative poverty.

One can only speculate if the Thomas Shaw Sr mentioned above is in any way connected to the protestant George Shaw buried in Saint James' cemetary, Castledermot and whose inscription reads:

Here lyeth
the body of Geo
rge Shaw Junior
who died the
23rd day of March 1699.
T.S.
Also the body of/ George Shaw SenR
who departed this
life the 11th day of/ February 1711
aged 72 years.
I rest in hope to rise
againe for it is said
none shall remaine
unjudged at the judge
ment.I have paid
the debt you all must pay.


The initials T.S. seem interesting.

5th of May 1798.     Examination of David Fardy of Castledermot, Farmer:

Fardy saw Peter Doyle, Labourer after 11 pm in street, pike in hand; also John Farmer. Fardy knows Michael Shannon of Moone to be a United Irishman and Mathew Hayden of the Old Turnpike - Fardy gave him a shilling to buy iron to make a tool, and Hayden said: "everyone of them would want a tool" Hayden gave Fardy a pike a few days after. Brian Bulger is a United Irishman - Fardy gave him subscription of 3 pence which Bulger said was by order of Lord Edward. James Kenna a United Irishman and Philip Hoar of Bolton Hill.
