  • Name Peter Hannaway  [1
    Gender Male 
    Occupation 10 Nov 1867  [2
    Labourer 
    • Occupation is from marriage record of son John Hannaway in 1867. A "Labourer" means that John's father Peter Hanaway was not a landowner or a farm tenant. We know his wife Rose (Mullen) lived in the Hannaway household in Slieve Gullion townland (from her 1894 death record). In 1864 the tenant was a Patrick Hanaway-possibly brother or father to Peter.

    HANNAWAY John & Mary McGinness 1867 Marriage Record
    HANNAWAY John & Mary McGinness 1867 Marriage Record
    Picture Note: 1867 Marriage entry for John Hannaway & Mary McGinness (known as Mary "Bartley" after her father Bartholomew or Bartley McGinness) - in Lislea RC chapel, Lislea, Co Armagh. John is a "Labourer" because he is not a tenant of 'House & Land'. This document confirms that Bartholomew McGinnis of Levelamore is the father of Mary McGinnis.
    Picture Note: John's father "Peter Hannaway" is recorded as a "Labourer". He is therefore not the Tenant of the Hannaway household in Slieve Gullion townland where he resides with his wife Rose Mullen: the Tenant would be recorded as a "Farmer". But three years earlier, in the 1864 Griffiths Land Valuations, the Tenant was a "Patrick Hanaway". © Crown copyright- https://geni.nidirect.gov.uk/

    Picture Note: In land plot 2 John Hannaway left home in 1867 and married into Levelamore, inheriting its tenancy in 1886. Back in Slieve Gullion John later took over his parent's land (plot 2) in 1916, following the death of his brother Hughie. In plot 4 Michael McGee was from Denis (Dinny) Mcgee's household (No 5); Michael had married neigbour Catherine Farmer in 1865.
    Picture Note: These households were at 850 feet and acess down to the (Longfield) road was mostly through Aughadanove townland. Since most could not read at this time "Aughadanove" was invariably recorded as their home on births/marriages, rather than "Slieve Gullion".

  • Notes 
    • The Church (of Ireland) Tithes of 1828 provide the first land records for Slieve Gullion townland. "Starting with what became the Hannaways the next house over was a (tenant) surname Farmer into which married one of the McGee’s (Michael). Farmer’s was No2 house, McGee’s No3. Boyle’s that had the 5 Boyle sisters; married locally. Further over was Matt Morgan’s-you can see it from out there (visible from Eugene's house in Ballykeel). He was the only one (Morgan) there in 1828: the reason is that (Matt’s) was an extension of all the Morgan’s up in Aughadanove-it was “Morganstown” up the wee loanin near the Mode (Protestant) school. At one stage 10 or 12 Morgan houses up there". (2016 audio recording of Eugene McCann, local historian)
      The next land record identifies Peter & Rose's property (Slieve Gullion townland: tenant map ref No2) it is the 1862 Griffiths Land Valuation showing a tenant "Patrick Hanaway". No other record of Patrick Hanaway/Hannaway who lived or died thereabouts has yet been found. The local historian Eugene McCann suspects "Patrick" could be a mis-spelling/record error since locals could not read or write at the time. Eugene is also quite certain that this "Hanaway" individual was originally from Ayallogue townland in Killeavey, where there were 8 Hanaway families. There was no spare land for new families in Ayallogue so they had to move to the higher elevation fields where their house & outbuildings were subsequently built. (Eugene's research also points to the McGinnis/Mcguinness family in Levelamore originating from Killeavy in the 1790's for the same reason). It was common practice to plant trees against the prevailing winds; Peter & Rose would have planted the mature trees which can be seen in front of the house on photos and also on Google satelliteView.
      Peter's occupation of Labourer is from the marriage record of son John Hannaway in Nov 1867. A "Labourer" means that John's father Peter Hanaway was neither a landowner or a farm tenant. We know his wife Rose (Mullen) lived in the Hannaway household in Slieve Gullion townland (from her 1894 death record). In 1864 the tenant was a Patrick Hanaway-possibly brother or father to Peter Hannaway.
      Rose (Peter Hannaway's wife) takes over the tenancy from "Patrick" in 1873 (Griffiths Land Valuation Revisions). Peter never appears on the land records but we know he has died by Jan 1867 (see Marriage entry for Peter's daughter Mary, below). [[Peter is a "Farmer" in Marriage entries for daughters Anne in 1872 and Catherine in 1877.]] So who is the mystery Patrick? We can only assume he died in or before 1873. No identifiable record yet of this Patrick Hannaway/Hanaway.

      On this website's marriage records of sons Hugh & John Hannaway the residence for their father (Peter) is recorded as Adanove. This is misleading; there are no Hanaway or Hannaway households recorded in Adanove between 1864 and 1929. Access from the road (now the Longfield Road) to the Hannaway home is initially across two fields in Adanove. The third field is the Hannaway's land but you are now in the adjoining townland of Slieve Gullion. The records of the family in the 1800s mostly show they could not read/write so townland borders would be vague. There are also implications for the RC parish boundaries. The fields they walked up to the house in Adanove are in Mullaghban parish-where they attended and recorded baptisms and marriages. Their house being in Slieve Gullion townland could well be part of Meigh or Drumintee parish.

      The Jan 1867 Marriage entry for Peter's daughter Mary, shows that her Father's "Rank or Profession" is "dead". The 1878 marriage records of son Hugh, also record that his father, Peter, is deceased: the 1872 marriage of Anne and of Catherine (1877) do not say "Deceased". So far Peter Hannaway's exact date of death remains unknown.
      Although Death Registration officially commenced in 1864 it was very patchy in this area: likewise for parish funeral records.
      Peter Hannaway could not write, thus on official records his name is variously recorded as : Hanoway, Heneway and Hanaway. Fr Hamill in Mullaghban chapel always spelt it Hannaway. These spelling variations should be considered during online searches.

      "John was son of Peter Hannaway & Rose Mullen (she) of Newtownhamilton. The Hannaway name had not arrived (in Slieve Gullion & Levelamore townlands) by the Church Tithes of 1828, but it was there by the time of Griffith's Land Valuations of 1862" (2016 audio recording of Eugene McCann, local historian).

      Eugene has very generously rewritten for me his extensive research on Hannaways and our extended families (eg McGuinness/McGinnis). Attached to his Hannaway documents was a photo of the house of Peter & Rose Hannaway on Slieve Gullion taken in about 2000 which shows that the slate roof was still intact.
