Thumb through the Family Album
Visitors, take a peek to see why you're lucky or unlucky that you didn't get our family's genes.
Michael Nash was born in County Limerick, Ireland circa 1807. He was a woodranger for Lord Monteagle at Mount Trenchard. He married Margaret Walsh 26/2/1843 in Foynes, County Limerick, Ireland. Sponsors: Lawrence Naish and Joanna Hayes.
In 1849, Michael Nash paid 3 men, Patrick Dempsey, Michael Culhane and John Hennesey to cause bodily harm to the steward of Lord Monteagle, Loughlin Sharpe. Loughlin Sharpe was paying the poor, on the public works projects, only a schilling a week and pocketing the rest of the money. This angered Michael.
The men met at Nolan's Pub in Newbridge and Michael paid them. They then proceeded to the house of Loughlin Sharpe where they cut off his ear and slit his achilles tendon.
All four men were sentenced to 7 years transportation. Here are the records of Michael Nash.
Michael Nash was convicted of a charge of malicious assault on 7/16/1849. His sentence was 7 years in the penal colony system. He was "transported" from Cohb (Cork), Ireland on the ship RODNEY on 12/20/1851. The Rodney weighed 877 tons and was built in Sunderland in 1850. The ship had 312 convicts on board. The ship's Master was Alex MacLean and the Surgeon was Harvey Morris. He sailed to Gibraltor, Spain, and spent 18 months there and then was transferred to the ship the Saint Vincent and was on the last boat of convicts to Hobart, Tasmania in 1853. The Saint Vincent dropped off 100 convicts in Gibraltor and picked up 102 convicts for the final voyage. The Saint Vincent was rigged as a ship of 633 tons, built in London in 1829. Her master was John Young and Surgeon Thomas Sommerville.
