Narrative

Anthony was born on 8 June 1873 in Knockanina, near Mountrath, Queen's County in Ireland. His Father was Michael Doolan a farmer of Knockanina and his mother Anne Carroll was from Sconce. Catherine Carroll who informed the registrar was present at the birth.

Anthony was shown as living at home, in Knockanina, on the night of 31st March 1901 in the Census. He is shown as 24 years of age (this is believed to be incorrect as it would make him born in 1877). The census shows him as a farmer who can Read & Write, speaking English as opposed to Irish. Born in Knockanina.

On 3rd October 1912 he married Elizabeth Moore from Killenure at the Church of Camross, Coolrain, Mountmellick, Queen's County, Ireland. They had five children: Anne, Anthony, Philomena, Michael James and Patrick.

Apparently 'drew' stones to build his own house in Knockanina.

He died aged 83 years old and was buried in the family grave at Clonenagh. No stone there can be found but a memorial was laid at nearby Mountrath Cemetery.

The family kept a Bible of relatives but this is currently lost. He had at least one sister, Annie who lived in Ludlow with her husband who was a butcher, and a half-brother. In his late teens Sydney joined the Army and served abroad.

Sydney joined the Welsh Regiment as a Private 10408. His entered France, his first 'Theatre of War', on 18 January 1915. He received the:
Victory Medal. The Victory Medal 1914-1919 was awarded to all eligible personnel who served on the establishment of a unit in an operational theatre.
British War Medal. The British War Medal 1914-1920was awared as Sydney must have entered a theatre of war, or rendered approved service overseas between 5 August 1914 and 11 November 1918. Service in Russia in 1919 and 1920 also qualified for the award.
1914/1915 Star. This was awarded to those individuals who saw service in France and Flanders from 23 November 1914 to 31 December 1915, and to those individuals who saw service in any other operational theatre from 5 August 1914 to 31 December 1915.
Additionally Sydney is shown to have been awarded the Silver War Badge. The Silver War Badge (SWB), sometimes erroneously called the Silver Wound Badge, was authorised in September 1916 and takes the form of a circular badge with the legend "For King and Empire-Services Rendered" surrounding the George V cypher. The badge was awarded to all of those military personnel who were discharged as a result of sickness or wounds contracted or received during the war, either at home or overseas. Sydney was discharged 11 August 1917, aged 31 years.

While in-service Sydney contracted Malaria, a disease that was to periodically re-occur for the rest of his life. It is likely that his service was distinguished as his daughter, Betty, remembers that he had a lot of medals. He was promoted to the rank of Sergeant.

Nothing is known about Sydney's first marriage other than there were no offspring.

On leaving the army he moved to Wales where, it is believed he married Elizabeth Jones from Tenbury near Ludlow. However, Elizabeth became ill and they moved back to Shropshire.

They had several children including
1. Paul who died shortly after birth.
2. Muriel
3. Peter
4. Sydney
5. Leonard
6. Fred who was born at Scotts Lane, Cainham, Ludlow Shropshire on 19th June 1921.
7. Evelyn
8. Dorethy
9. Mildred
10. Betty and
11. Walter who were twins born at 2 Ludlow Road, Bitterly, Ludlow, Shropshire on 17th May 1928.

The couple then continued to live at no. 2 Ludlow Road, Clee Hill. The family were very poor surviving on there own home grown food and what they could make by selling produce. They kept sheep and a few cows on the Hill which at the time was common land.

Sydney took employment as a stone quarryman at Dhustone Quarry on Titterstone and Clee Hill and would walk to work where he would blast the stone with dynamite. Soon he became a foreman and paymaster at the works which specialised in a granite for aggregates in hard surfaces.

Sydney was a tall man, over six feet, and regularly wore a cloth cap. Not wealthy he had only one suit which was immaculate as it only came out of its wrappings for special occasions.

Sydney died in Ludlow hospital "aged 80(or 82) years". His address was given as 23 Curdale Close, Cleobury Mortimer. The informant was his son Walter DAVIES.

Sydney's house on Clee Hill, in very poor condition, was bought by daughter Betty and her husband Alex and demolished. It was replaced with a new house as a second home for them when they visited Betty's home but, they sold it as it was regularly burgled in their absence.

Narrative

Family History Monthly - May 1997: It is unlikely that all 'Stephens' are related as the name, and variations on it such as Stephenson, is a patronymic. This means 'son of Stephen' Stephen being taken from the Greek 'Stephanos', meaning 'crown'. It was the name of the first Christian martyr, stoned to death at Jerusalem three years after the death of Christ. It became a popular name throughout Christendom in the Middle Ages, and consequently, it's the root of many European surnames today.

The martyr Stephen was described in Acts as a man "full of faith and power" doing "great wonders and miracles among the people". His name was given to ten popes before the 12th century, one English king, and several European rulers during the Middle Ages, all of which recommended the name to ordinary people.

The name Stephens and its variants was introduced to Britain with the Normans. Gloucestershire records show a family descended from FitzStephen, a Breton Knight who descended from Count Stephen of Brittany, and accompanied William the Conqueror to England for the Battle of Hastings.

Names connected with the 'Stephen' root include Stimson, Stibbs, Stebbing, Stepkin, Stiff, and perhaps also Stubbs, Steff, and Stennet. A Scottish variant is Stiven, which arose at the beginning of the 19th century.

'Stephens' is particularly characteristic of Cornwall and the counties near on the Welsh border, especially Herefordshire, Worcestershire, Gloucestershire, Shropshire and South Wales itself. There is a Stephens family with a very long pedigree from Tregenna in Cornwall, who are the descendants of the Stephyns of St. Ives (noted in the reign of Edward IV).

Narrative

Seventh child.
Siblings: Edward, Daniel Joseph, John Christopher, Thomas, Julia May and Elizabeth.

Michael was shown as living at home, in Dysartbeagh, on the night of 31st March 1901 in the Census. He is shown as 10 years of age. The census shows him as an unmarried Roman Catholic 'Scholar' who can Read & Write, speaking English as opposed to Irish.

Children: Brideen, Thomas, Attracta, Michael, John Joseph, Patrick, Eamon, Ita,
Bernadette and Joseph.

After working sometime, for a P.A. Meehan, Michael owned and ran a Public House and Butchers at 44/45 O'Moore Street, Mountmellick. This was handed down to his sons Eamon and Michael respectively.

There is a story told by his son Michael, or Mikie as he was called, of an incident that happened in 1912 two years after his father's death (this seems a little at odds with estimated dates of children). Mikie went to bed with a candle lit by his bedside. Apparently the candle burned down and as it did so managed to set the bed alight. Mikie asleep could hear his father calling him by name, "Mikie, Mikie, get up!" Michael awoke to his fathers voice to see the face of his father at the window. As Mikie went to the window the face vanished and only then did Mikie turn to see the potentially serious fire in his bed.

It is believed that Michael was an active member of the old Provisional Irish Republican Army (P.I.R.A.) and that he served six months imprisonment in Portlaoise Prison. He was suspected in being involved with a 'tarring and feathering' and acts against the Anglo-Irish Treaty.

Michael died 25 January 1966 the probate of his estate of £2641 was granted to his shopkeeper son Eamon.

From copy of newspaper cutting dated 26/27 Jan '66.

"Mr. Michael Dowling

Mr Michael Dowling, O'Moore St., Mountmellick, whose death has occurred, was one of the town's best known business men.
