I am searching for the Irish ancestors of my

great-grandfather, William

Crain (b. 17704, Down Co. , Ulster, Ireland) and

his wife Jean ? .They

immigrated from County Down , Ulster, Ireland in

1732 to Pennslyvania in

America. I am told , that many Irish Crains,

spelled our name Cryan ,and it

was spelled, O'Croidheain, before it was modified

to be more English, in

it's spelling. Any asistance, you may give me in

my quest for my Irish

ancestors, will be greatly appreciated, and very

well received. May God

Bless, Charles Crain.

Re: Oor Dougie as a

Cameronian , a clan who are not renowned for

Their mercy, behaved badly toward that Irish Mercenary

Simon O Croidheain (Anglicised Crean) who fought with

The remnants of Viscount Dundee's' army ,at the

Battle of Dunkeld in 1689 , by impaling him on a halbert



I have recently spent some time in Birnam and Dunkeld and tried to find out some more about the above.
The story I got from the information centres and records office is that John Graham of Claverhouse, otherwise known as Viscount Dundee, raised an army of highlanders including a large party of Cameronians, and on 27th. July 1689 defeated King William's troops at Killiecrankie.
Dundee died in the battle having been shot.
Part of the victorious army retired to Dunkeld.
In mid August King William raised a new army of some5000 highlanders who marched on Dunkeld where they laid siege to about 1200 Cameronians.
The king's troops made there way into the streets and the Cameronians took refuge in the cathedral and nearby mansion house.
The king's troops took refuge in the town houses. After the Cameronians ammunition ran out they rushed the king's troops, setting fire to the houses and burning the occupants alive.Those who escaped were chased into the hills.
There is no mention of Simon either at Dunkeld or at the records office in Perth. It looks as though he fought for the king against Dundee, which is strange as the king had only recently defeated the Irish in Ireland.
I remarked on the method of his death and one of the assistants at the record office commented "Why should he get better treatment than the others?".
It was well known for troops to change sides if a better offer was made or if the side they were on was losing.
Hope this helps you

all admit he was not a man of a big banking

Mr Jinks -- If he were discharged tomorrow the


would cost you nothing.

Mr Hargadon -- You ought to consider a man like

consider his long and faithful service.

Mr Cryan -- The Local Government Board should not

delay their decision on the subject.

Mr Hargadon -- Better not press the Local

The Milk

Mr Cryan proposed -- "That the Board were of


that the fine imposed on Contractor Kelly, for

deficiency in degrees of cream, was not a just


for two reasons. Firstly, the sample was taken in


hot weather, and secondly, the lactometer had


proven by experts to be useless. Therefore they

requested that the fine be remitted."

Mr Ward agreed. The master did not recognise the


for two months of the year.

A Guardian said the fines should be kept over the

contractors head, in order to insure good milk

for the

poor people.

Mr Ward said a man was entitled to the benefit of


doubt. From what he had heard, the standard was

not a

correct one.

Mr Moran said if the standard was incorrect in

the hot

weather, it was also incorrect in the cold


The following order was made: -- "The Board are

 Coal Contract

 The following tenders were received for the

 at 14s 3d per ton; Harper

 Campbell Ltd., at 13s 3d per ton and P.J.

 The tender of Harper Campbell was accepted.

 Mr Jinks‹ Are we going to get away, or ask no

 Chairman‹ You must accept this contract in

 accordance with your

 advertisement. I think the coal you refer to was

 not giving satisfaction.

 Mayor‹ In the Asylum they mix it with English


 Mr Cryan said there were men going about the

 telling the firemen of the different institutions

 to say Irish coal was no good (laughter).

 Mr Brennan‹ There is a good deal in that.

 Chairman‹ There is one thing about the Irish

 coal, and that is its

 "Let Knowledge grow from more to more ,

 But more of reverence in us dwell;

 That mind and soul, according well,

 May make one music as before,

 But vaster."


 So sings the late poet Laureate, in his immortal


 Memoriam," and such was the lofty and noble

 ideal of

 the above mentioned. Born on the shores of Laugh


 about five miles from Ballaghaderreen, of parents


 but upright and self-respecting , characters so

 distinctive of our better Irish peasantry, young


 at an early age developed characteristics quite


 the average young lads of Coolavin. The death of


 father brought a crash of ruin on the hard



 The good "Soggarth Aroon" of the parish now the


 Rev. Cannon O'Hara, P.P. Kilmovee, quickly saw


 the son of the widow was possessed of no mean


 and to comfort and tide the weak family over


 difficulties appointed "Tom" assistant in Cross


 Shortly afterwards he was appointed to Coolavin


 and finally got the principalship in Townaghbrack


 His subsequent brilliant career as a teacher


 justified the good priest's opinion of the poor


 son. In quick time he attained the highest rank


 teacher under the National Board; won the

 Carlisle and

 Blake Premium and turned out in quick succession


 number of pupils, who greatly distinguished


 and their teacher in various pursuits.

 His restless energy did not end, he established a

 science and art classes, the number and quality

 of his

 success was phenomenal. The class quickly became


 in Connaught, notwithstanding various drawbacks

 he had

 to contend with was a poor and congested

 locality. His

 Catholic Colleges, and distinguished themselves

 at the

 int... examinations, carrying off Exhibit prizes

 galore, and proving that we are only beginning to


 the inseparation between Primary and Secondary.


 in brief is an outline of his world. Shall we say


 his character as a man friend and companion?

 Words are

 meaningless, and when not arest that happy knack


 character ....quence, are wanting in something


 applied to the death of such. If every word were


 rose, kissed by the sun by the sun in June,


 an im...... fragance, aand that I could a


 select the choicest, and place on the grave, they

 might suitably express feelings for :-


 "A life that all the muses decked

 With gifts of grace that might

 All-subtilising intellect."


 Mr. Cryan was a man deeply and .....loved by

 those who

 knew him......As a teacher , as a business man, a

 husband, as a father, there was no-one better

 than he.

 He did his duty following his consience; he had

 He was ge....patient with the little ones

 Thanks to Veronica Cryan for the typing



 14th November, 1903.




 The pay sheet was then read over and in a sum of


 odd deferred from Owen Pettit for a road in the

 Knockruah District the co […] protested against


 action of the County Surveyor, and said there was


 better road within forty miles of Boyle. He had


 over £70 on it, and to show it was in good

 repair, he

 would get the best car in Boyle for Mr. Mulvany

 if he

 came out now and inspected it.

 Mr. Mulvany said this contractor was to have out


 tons of stones on the road, but up to the 4th


 he had only out 63 tones. He could not ask the


 to recommend payment for any man who had not half


 quantity delivered.

 The matter was passed over.

 Mr. Cryan, contractor for the repair of several

 of the

 lanes in Boyle, also complained of a sum being


 from him. It was impossible to keep the place in

 repair, when the inhabitants of these places have


 back promises, and were continually carting out

 manure, ashes etc.,

 Mr. Mulvany advised Mr. Cryan to proceed against


 of the parties for the present defective

 condition of

 the place, and the proceedings terminated.
