Welcome!

Welcome to Our Irish Roots

May 2nd, 2011

 

We are one family.

This site is to try and link all Crabtrees of Irish birth and those who married into the family and their  children whose roots lay in Ireland. The completion of Scots born Crabtree is also now placed herein. From Ireland, Scotland and England, the Crabtree family emigrated to the world.

Due to the lack of records in Ireland, it is quite hard to place relatives together. The following information is as correct as possible. If you have relatives born in Ireland and can offer further information please contact me.

 Best wishes

Nadine Crabtreeirish flagFrom small beginnings by John & Magota Crabtree of Blyndeshagh in Yorkshire in the 14th Century – and Amanda Crabtree from Kettle Fife Scotland who married Archibald de Bethune in 1420 and produced the 3rd Earl of Bethune John de Bethune – the Crabtrees who flourished in Argentina, Jamaica, Brasil, Malta, Australia, New Zealand and many other countries, welcome indeed.

With special thanks to the Crabtrees of Arkansas without whom this page would never have been forthcoming.

AN IRISH GATE – NO REALLY!

HUGH CRABTREE FIRST CRABTREE IN AUSTRALIA

January 26th, 2012

Hugh Crabtree – Born 1761 Ireland
Throughout this journey I have learned of our Hugh Crabtree born 1761 who married in Ireland and fathered 6 children. In fighting for the rights of the Irish he was sentenced to Life in Port Jackson Australia in 1798 He left Ireland in 1800 and arrived on The Anne in 1801. Thereafter he farmed near the Hawkesbury River at Pitt Town New South Wales. Hugh had a hard life; he received a Conditional Pardon 1804 so could never return to Ireland. I do not know what happened to his wife Margaret (Bagnor) Crabtree in Ireland, but I have found two of his daughters who married here. The sons and one other daughter I have yet to find. Someone out there must have – Hugh, James, Margaret or John in their tree.
Hugh found companionship in Australia with another exile from County Armagh Northern Ireland; her name was either Sarah or Anne Wilson. I cannot trace her family. She was convicted in Armagh and sentenced to 7 years in Port Jackson. During the various musters Anne was with Hugh and then prior to the 1828 muster she disappears. Hugh’s story is sad. To my knowledge there was no issue for Hugh and Anne so the line died out there. However he was the first Crabtree to set foot on that warm and welcoming soil. One day I hope to find out where Hugh is buried. One day I hope to find the rest of his Irish family.
More on Hugh Crabtree which was brought to light by Ian Beckett – through his kind forays into the records of NSW he has been enlightening as to Hugh Crabtree and his wife/girlfriend Anne/Sarah Wilson who arrived on The Experiment in 1809 aged 18 years – she was convicted in County Armagh in 1806 – of what we are unsure. However she may have been sent to Hugh to help on the farm although the Pioneer Register shows her as being married to Hugh. Whether his wife in Ireland was dead or whether once out of their native country the laws of Bigamy no longer existed is a moot point.
The following is an entry in the INDEX AND REGISTERS OF LAND GRANTS, LEASES AND PURCHASES
Location: New South Wales. Reel No: 2549 Page No: 7 Grant No: 25 Registration No: 13 Folio No: 63 Acres: Two lots of 50 acres (100 acres in total) Year land granted to him: 1823
The other is an entry in the HAWKESBURY PIONEER REGISTER VOLUME 2 Crabtree – Hugh born 1761 in Ireland (?) arrived 21/2/1801 on “Anne” – convict – married to Ann/Sarah Wilson. – no known children.
Notes: Residences” 1802 Parramatta- 1822 Windsor- 1828 PittTown- land owner/farmer.

 

IN JUNE 2012 I RECEIVED THIS INFORMATION FROM PETER CRABTREE WHO RECEIVED IT FROM AUSTRALIA

The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser –

1803      Sun. 19 June Conditional Emancipation

1810      Sat 17 March Assignments to Edward Willis

1811      Sat 17 Aug. Auction notice for 23rd  of a quantity of standing wheat, pigs and other effects

1811   Dec. 12   Auction notice for 19th  for the same products.

1812      June 3  Notice of stolen Promissory Notes from him on Monday 13th April

1813      April 10   A Promissory Note drawn by him for M. Poore was stolen from M. Poore

1813    Dec 11,  Another auction on 15th at Premises of Hugh Crabtree. The

Provest Marshal will cause the sale of:  8 acres of wheat, 4 acres of corn

and 21 pigs.

1814      Feb. 5  Hugh had another Promissory Note stolen on 31 Jan. 1814

1815      March 26 Notice of an auction at Cattyi Creek on Friday 1 April under the instructions of  the Provest Marshal.  5 casks of peach cider, 6 acres of forward corn and 6 acres of stubble corn.

1816      June 22   Witness or alibi for a neighbour who is a suspect in a murder

1818      Aug. 1  Auction in the Market Place,  Windsor  on 8 Aug . A cart, pigs and other effects.

1820    Feb 12   Under a writ from the Supreme Court, Hugh seems to have lost

the case and a valuable farm.  Wheeler’s Farm at Little Caddie on River

Hawkesbury, as well as 30 acres of quality wheat; 8 acres of growing maize and sundries

1820      April 28  Appears in a list of land grants  “New and Old Settlers”

1834    Sept 20    Assigned to John Grono of Pitt Town

Cattyi Creek and Little Caddie  are probably modern day Cattai Creek, a tributary of the Hawkesbury River.

Colonial Secretary Index, 1788-1825

[State Records of New South Wales]  Archives

1806 Feb 14  Evidence given by Hugh Crabtree in case Marsden v Maason

(Reel 6041; 4/1720)

1821      June 28 Of  Wilberforce, Memorial {(Fiche 3016; 4/1823 No 156)

NSW Archives

1822      Assaulted Bernard Fitzpatrick  [Reel 197;  Citation 2703 (SZ795) 11]

SO IT WOULD SEEM THAT HUGH FINALLY LOST EVERYTHING. THE OUTSTANDING INFORMATION IS HIS DEATH AND HIS PLACE OF BURIAL.

MYSTERY CRABTREES FOUND BORN IN IRELAND

January 26th, 2012

 

PARENTS UNKNOWN – NO RECORDS IN IRELAND
Bridy Crabtree born Ireland 1855.
In Census, 1870 she was in New York United States York City, ward 21.
OOO

Saml. Crabtree birth 1821 Ireland
In Census 1870 USA He was living in Smith Texas Tyler Beat USA   His occupation – Gin Wright i.e Maker of Cotton Gins – both parents born Ireland. Did he marry and have children?

OOO

United States Census, 1870 Rhode Island Providence Smithfield, voting districts 1 and 4    Thomas Crabtree born Ireland 1800 – who was he born to? He is a Citizen of the US but cannot find when he left Ireland. He claims to be 70. I would hazard a guess that he was the father of May Carey born Ireland aged 40 as he is living in the house with the John Carey family

This Thomas is now resolved and the father of Robert Jasper and Matilda and Mary Crabtree.
