GRAVEYARD TRANSCRIPTIONS - LEIXLIP, ST. MARY'S GRAVEYARD

Leixlip - St. Mary's - Gravestones
Compiled and checked by

John Colgan and Suzanne Pegley, Leixlip.


The graveyard within the curtilage of St. Mary's Church (of Ireland, Episcopalian)
served the wider Leixlip community, without reference to religious denomination,
for many centuries. This community extended from Lucan on the east, to St
Catherine's on the north east, to Confey on the north, to Barnhall and Parsonstown
on the west, to Westonpark and Cooldrinagh on the south; it straddled the river
Liffey and included parts of Counties Kildare and Dublin. St. Mary's graveyard is
complemented by graveyards at Confey - both old and modern - just north of
Leixlip town, Donaghcumper near Celbridge to the southwest, Donoughmore near
Pike's Bridge to the west and Esker cemetery to the east in Lucan.
St Mary's graveyard is now virtually full and contemporary Leixlip burials - apart
from cremations - are usually to the modern cemetery at Confey. The parish
records of burials to St Mary's extend from 1668 to today. Unfortunately,
substantial gaps exist in the years for which records are available; for example,
during the period, 1668 to 1777, there are no entries in 44 of the years. There are
smaller gaps in the data for the 19th century records.
The gravestone inscriptions in St Mary's graveyard provide additional information
about Leixlip burials and sometimes about the burials elsewhere of persons related
to those buried at Leixlip. This information is additional in two senses: it augments
the rudimentary information in the Church's burial records about individuals cited
there and, secondly, it occasionally provides information about burials in St Mary's
for which there is no local written record extant.
McAuliffe and O'Kelly-Lynch carried out a survey of "Monumental Inscriptions
from Leixlip, Co. Dublin" which was published by the Irish Genealogist 1969 4(2).
It is incomplete in its coverage for burials to that time. It also contained some
errors of fact, most likely because of the overgrowth in the cemetery which would
have existed then. In recent times, St Mary's graveyard has undergone an extensive
cleanup: fallen and dangerous trees were removed and the boundary, masonry wall
repaired and raised. With the efflux of time some gravestones are no longer legible
or have disintegrated. On this account, the authors have augmented their own
findings with those of McAuliffe and O'Kelly-Lynch where they have not found
headstones which those authors transcribed; these augmentations are shown in
italics in the report which follows. In the manner of McAuliffe and O'Kelly-Lynch,
we have created references for all secondary surnames cited on the gravestones.
The field work for this survey was completed in January, 2000.
