William Ryan, of Newross

William Ryan,
of the Ryan "Tim" family.
He mar pre-1814 to Bridget Ryan [Biddy, par records show her maiden name was Ryan].
He is listed as farmer, Newross, at children's baptisms 1814-1816.
She must be "Biddy Ryan" who sp the bapt of (probably her niece) Honora Ryan 1816.
He must be "William Ryan" who sp the bapt of (probably his niece) Judy Ryan 1822.
"William Ryan" is listed at Newross in [Tithe Survey, 1827]. He holds 52 acres, the 2nd largest plot in the townland.
[Census, 1835] shows "William Ryan (Timothy)" as sole occupant of Newross. He is listed as Catholic. It seems Tim Ryan of Newross died early and his son Mickey Tim Ryan was not yet old enough to take over.

William is NOT listed at Newross in the printed copies of [Griffiths Valuation, 1848-1850]. Only Mickey Tim Ryan is listed.
However, [Fred Faulkner] says he found "William Ryan (Tim)" and "Michael Ryan (Tim)" listed in "The Rateable Valuation lists of 1850".
Mickey Tim Ryan (William's probable nephew) was evicted from Newross apparently 1850 and moved to nearby Ahane (Cully).

Eviction of William Ryan, 1854:
[Fred Faulkner] thinks William was the last Ryan in Newross, and was evicted by the landlord Bolton Waller apparently in 1854.
Fred Faulkner found a note added to the Ryan (Tim) entry in "The Rateable Valuation lists of 1850", saying: "4.00 a.m. March 1854 - Bolton".
This ties in with a story that the Ryans were evicted in the middle of the night.

It is thought that after William was evicted in 1854, he went to join (his probable nephew) Mickey Tim Ryan who was already living at Ahane/Cully.
William and Bridget had issue:

  1. John Ryan,
    born Newross,
    bapt 11th Sept 1814 [Newport RC par records], sp John Ryan, Mary Ryan.

  2. Denis Ryan,
    born Newross,
    bapt 29 Aug 1816 [Newport RC par records], sp Tim Ryan, Margaret Hourigan.

Baptism of Denis Ryan, 29 Aug 1816 [Newport RC par records].
