CARLOW, MARCH 27, 1784

DIED – A few days ago, at Glasgarvan, in this county, Mr. Samuel Watson, Sen. One of the Society called Quakers. – A Gentleman of an untarnished character, possessed of a most philanthropic disposition, most deservedly regretted by a numerous acquaintance, as a tender husband, an indulgent parent, and a sincere friend. "The Carlow Journal Or Leinster Chronicle"

No. 13. Vol. 1. MONDAY, JANUARY 12, 1818 [TCMP]

DIED – A few days ago in Dublin, WILLIAM BURTON, Esq., the well-known, and highly respectable proprietor of Burton hall, the hospitality of which has been proverbial for centuries back. Mr. B. represented the County Carlow, in seven or eight Parliaments; and uniformly proved himself the steady friend of his County. His humane dispositions, like the principles which excited them were boundless as the ocean – they flowed continually through the several channels of private Friendship, public Charity, and secret Beneficence. For upwards of 60 years his daily occupations were to feed the hungry – clothe the naked – shelter the houseless, and succour the oppressed amongst his fellow-creatures : he made himself a Debtor to pay the debts of others, and honourably entered into those obligations which his rigid sense of Justice demanded, but which Law could not enforce. During his whole life, which Providence ordained should be a long one, he never swerved in a single instance that we can recollect, to have heard of, from the maxim expressed by his own Motto – TRUTH and HONOR.

Mr. BURTON’S remains were, on Saturday last, deposited in the Family Vault, at Rutland Church, attended by all the respectable Inhabitants of this TOWN – an immense crowd of his tenantry, and the neighbouring poor, who had for years been objects of his bounty.

A few days ago, at Lodge Mills, in this county, R. Browne Esq. a man whose amiable manners and high character through life, has rendered his death generally regretted.


No. 15 Vo. 1. MONDAY, JANUARY 19, 1818 [TCMP]

DIED – The Right Hon. GEORGE ROSE, died on Monday, at his seat at Cuffnells, by which several lucrative places have become vacant. Quere, were not some of these sine cures, held under the rose?

DEATHS – On Thursday, at Burgage, in this County, the Dowager Lady Butler, relict of the late Sir Richard Butler, Bart., and mother to Sir Thomas Butler, of Garryhunden, Bart. This amiable Lady had been for some years in a declining state of health, and saw her approaching dissolution with that calm resignation – the result of a well grounded HOPE – which deprived death of its sting. And gives a victory over the grave.

MARRIED – At Middleton, County Cork, on Saturday, the 20th of March, by the Lord Bishop of Cloyne, the Rev. John Warburton, youngest son of his Lordship, to Henrietta Ann, daughter of R. Sandford Palmer, of Ballynockan Castle, in the King’s County, Esq.

MONDAY, AUGUST 5, 1822 [TCMP]

DIED – At Baroda, (East Indies) in the 31st year of his age, Captain JOHN BROUGH, of the Bombay Regiment, and Commanding a Division of the Poona-Aux-Horse. It has been the lot of few young men to pass through the world with the desirably high and honourable character that has ever, (from his first entrance into the service) attended him; and it is now some consolation to his numerous friends, and his relatives, to know, that few, if any, were better prepared for that sudden and awful calamity, which it has please Divine Providence to inflict – with all his lively spirits and natural predilection for manly amusements, which nothing could exceed. He was an excellent Christian, and a truly pious man – and in hours of conviviality, and greatest mirth, he never forgot his Saviour. He was at once a man of the purest honour, an excellent and devoted Officer, and a sincere and tried friend. His loss to the service, of which he was one of its brightest ornaments, is great – to his friends irreparable. – Bombay Paper.

The deceased was son on Capt. BROUGH, Carlow Militia Staff.

THURSDAY, APRIL 19, 1832 [TCMP]

DIED – In Dublin, on the 13th inst. In the 67th year of his age, Constantine Brough, Esq., late Captain in the Carlow Militia, and for many years a magistrate and deputy governor of this county. To the genuine worth and many domestic virtues of him whose death is here recorded, his numerous and grateful family can alone, in the deep conviction of the debt they owe him, bear adequate testimony.
