The entry of South West Cork into international trade with Europe from the late 16th century. Seizures 1620 of ‘Plymouth’ sailing from Kinsale to Cadiz and Malaga by Turks and Moores and of ‘Weymouth’ sailing from Bantry with pilchards to Alicante in Spain and the crew being sold into slavery by the Turks and Moors.

The above are from the records of Trinity House in London and the summaries are available on British History Online. They illustrate the extend of international trading in the period affecting the area.

Under the old Gaelic order trade took the form of barter of fish for wine or as a rentier where o’Sullivan Bere received a tribute from the Spaniards to fish or rent for fish palaces on Whiddy Island. In evidence before a parliamentary Commission sitting in Bantry in 1836 a member of the Bantry Young family said that they had lost a considerable sum in the failure of a bank in Bilbao around 1640 suggesting that the operational system was in place for some previous time.

Apart from pilchards timber was bring exploited and exported and in East Cork Sir Walter Raleigh was exporting timber products to Spain and the Canaries, In the same area iron smelters and glass works were bring established in the Bride Valley.

The old Gaelic order was not equipped culturally or have the business skills or contacts to integrate with the developing European economy and the process is an important one of cultural exchange ultimately beneficial to everyone. There had been a limited amount of trade as witnessed in the Customs receipts of Kinsale and Baltimore prior to 1600.

The introduction of English and welsh businessmen such as Davenant, Hull and others enabled a high value product to enter international trade. Their experience, training, financial backing from London houses and marketing contacts opened up the local economy to internaational trade. This commenced a process which enabled the dramatic transformation of the local landscape, enormous population increase both local and abroad among descendant of local people and the enormous prosperity enjoyed today.

By the middle of the 17th century the records of the East India Company suggest that youths from the most remote townlands of West Cork were joining their army and navy for Indian service:

19 March 1620. Certificates by Trinity House

They have been asked by James Carter, mariner of Plymouth, and others to certify that he was master of the John of London (about 60 tons) bound from Kinsale in Ireland to Cadiz and Malaga in Spain when the ship was surprised by Turks and Moors on 17 Sept. last. He and all his crew, numbering 8, were taken to Arcila in Barbary, enslaved, sold 5 times, and cruelly misused. Carter lost his adventure of £140 in goods and merchandise. His release was secured by a Jew, and he was sent home to obtain ransom for himself and 5 others who are held in great misery at Tetuán in Barbary. The ransom of 800 rials a man, equivalent to a total of £420 for all of them, would make his total loss £560, which he will never be able to raise without help.

160. 28 March 1620. Certificate by Trinity House

At the request of Clement White, mariner of Weymouth in Dorset, and others they certify that he was pilot of the Hopewell of Rye (about 35 tons) which last September sailed from thence to Bantry in Ireland where he loaded a cargo of pilchards. Sailing from thence to Alicante in Spain, the ship was surprised by a Turkish man-of-war near the Southern Cape. He was sold to the Moors in Arcila in Barbary who took him to Tetuán, where he was kept in cruel slavery for about 2 months. English merchants then ransomed him for £30 which he now owes and cannot repay because he lost his estate of £40 when the ship was taken. He, his wife and 6 children are likely to perish.

W Cowley and James White sitting with Jury in Cork February 1541 Deputies of the King’s Commission for Co. Cork forfeiting Monastries, Abbey of the Cave of St. Finbarr or Gill Abbey (including lands at Kilcrohane and Bantry, West Cork), Benedctine Priory of Rosscarbery with Church adn Buttery, Carmelite House, Kinsale.

Among the various jurors old Cork names like Galwey, Skiddy and coppinger feature among others. There is some listing of tenants and details of other property assets and valuations.

The Irish Manuscript Commission in 1943 published the extent of irish Monasteries in 1541 based on records in the Public Records Office in London.

The are now online, look up the Irish Manuscript Commission site online editions.

Cork Monasteries in original book from around p 156 and digital edition p 140.

The St. Finbarr properties roughly correspond to their property inventory from c 1800 and probably date from the Norman conquest.

Ellen Hutchins was descended from Hutchins on both sides. On her father’s side the Cork Hutchins were a rough bunch, smugglers, middle men and even her own brothers were incessantly squabbling. The family had a number of houses at Ballylickey and Ardnagashel.

She is probably buried in the old Bantry protestant Graveyard:

Partial transcript of trial of Tim Cadogan for murder of W.S. Bird, Bantry, West Cork. 1900 and botched Execution.

Partial transcript of trial of Tim Cadogan for murder of W.S. Bird, Bantry, West Cork. 1900 and botched Execution. Page 8 is missing.

The murder and later trial caused a sensation. Bird was a land agent and one of the estates he managed the White estate of Glengariff, Cadogan was evicted for non payment of rent, despite three requests Bird refused to re instate him. The Brooks mentioned working in Warners was also a Methodist.

Bird was a popular figure in Bantry the family was long in the area appearing in the Bantry estate records from around 1750 and was well respected.

There were two trials on the first the jury filed to reach a verdict but he was convicted on the second trial.

Courtesy Dan Sullivan.

Apart from the legal issues the transcript gives an idea of a busy fair day then held on a Saturday.

Other people and businesses mentioned are Warners, this closed around the 1980s and was incorporated into the present Super Valu group controlled by the O’Keeffe family. The Warners were Methodist and one of the family appears in probate records then in Kilcrohane from around 1620 perhaps they were involved in the fishing industry.

The public house of Tom Hurst is where the present Bank of Ireland is. The Hursts descend from a North of England coastguard based in Bantry now an insurance company. Tom Hurst’s son Eddy was a model farmer living at Beach House which had been the Bird house and was involved in the Bantry and Durrus Agricultural Show.
