1465 King Edward the 4 of England declares by statute that every Irishman dwelling within the Pale, which than comprised the counties of Dublin, Meath, Louth and Kildare should "take to him of one town, as Sutton, Chester, Trym, Skryne, Corke, Kinsale: or color as white, black, browne; or art or science; as smith or carpenter; or office as cooke, butler; an English surname". 5 Edward 4, C, 3. Lloyd McKenna Family History

O' means, "grandson of ", or loosely, "descended from". O' was reserved for the Milesian Irish of high rank in ancient days, according to O'Clery who compiled "The Annals of The Four Masters" in 1632. Mac means "son of" Mc is just a shortened version of same. English law in Ireland forbid the prefixes "Within the Pale" at one time. Predjudice against the Irish caused some families to change the spelling of their names so they wouldn't be thought of as "those Irish". Pat Traynor tray@JPS.NET

1482 " Kilbercan, ie Kilbriccan or Ballybriccan in the Catholic parish of Monasterevan, or possibly Clonast, of which St. Berchan was patron. In 1482 Mathew Obythechayn (O Bea`cain O'Behan ? was prior of Rosglas, and was accused of certain crimes by Thomas Macchostelwa (MacCostelloe) alia Noygill. A commission was appointed to examine these charges, and to appoint Thomas prior if they found them true. Thomas was than perpetual vicor of Lega. Arch. Hib. DA900 A72 V.2, NEHGS

1492 “Accepting, however tentatively, that Di`seart Be`aca`in may fact represent an earlier form of the name of Bekan, what does the name mean? Diseart, which occurs in a category of names belonging to the early Christian period in Ireland, is, like the English words 'desert' and 'deserted,' derived from the Latin word desertus and means 'a solitary place' and, by extension, 'a retreat, a hermitage;' it referred to places where early Irish monks went to withdraw from the world and be alone with God. There is record of some 500 places of the name, or having disert as part of the name, througout Ireland, and in the great majority of cases where it forms the initial element of the name the Second part of the name is a personal name. Assuming that the name in question here conforms to this pattern, then Di`seart Be`aca`in would mean 'the hermitage, or retreat, of an individual named Be`aca`n.'

  It is difficult to find unambiguous examples of the personal name Béacán and this is due to quite a simple fact: mediaeval Irish scribeswere quite careless about inserting the lentgth-mark or accent (sineadh fada) over long vowels in their manuscripts. Therefore, when we come across a name written Beca`n or Becca`n in an Old Irish or Middle Irish text, it is often well-neigh impossible to know if this should be rendered Beaca`n or Beaga`n in modern Irish. That the two distinct names did exist is certain: for one thing, the names of which they appear to be respectivly diminutives, Be`cc and Bece (genitives Be`ice and Big), are well attested], and, in addition both names occur in present day Irish placenames --Be`aca`n, for example, in Bally-bacon (Baile Ui Bhe`aca`in), the name of a parish in south Tipperary, and Beaga`n in the name Kilbeggan (Cill Bheaga`in), a small town in Westmeath. (And mention has already been made of the tendency ot the initial B to sometimes change to P, as in the case of Kilpeacon in Co. Limerick and as appears to have happened with regard to Diseart Béacán in the document from 1492 in the CPI,.)” Béacán / Bekan DA995, B49, C65

1522 " From a document issued in 1522 we learn that the monastery of Rosglas being vacant certo modo the community elected unanimously Odo Dempsi (Dempsey) a professed monk there, and in priests orders as their abbot, and this election was confirmed by the abbot of Mellifont. their Pater Abbas and superior. Dempsey represented to the Pope that he was doubtful of the validity of his election, whereupon Adrian VI., by a bull dated 27th September 1522, directed the Abbot of Clonard, Odo Macanay (Mac Cana, MacCann), and Kervallus Obrenayn (Cearball Ó Braonain, Brennan), respectively canons of Ardagh and Leighlin to make diligent inquirey as to the merits of Dempsey and his fitness for the office, and should they find him fit, to appoint him abbot, in what ever way the abbacy should be vacant, provided that at the time no one else had a special claim upon it. The Pope also directed them should they find the rectories of Liega or Lega (Lea) alias Tyrcog (Tyrhogire, a church in the parish of Lea), Kylbrican (Kill or Bally-Briccan or Clonsast), and Dunmyrd (Dunmurry ?), or the perpetual of Ballyhynay or Ballyhynay (possibley Haynestown, in the Catholic Parish of Kildare) were canonically vacant, though in the possession of Thady and Patrick Nigla (possibly Ó Neigill, Nihill), William Mychach (Mideac, Meade), James Poret (?) and James Obscan (probably Ó Becan) alias Onan (?), to unite them to the above monastery so long as Dempsey should be abbot, provided that at the above date no one else had a right to them. From this document it would seem probable that the appointment mentioned in the text of the Annals (1521) did not take effect. Arch. Hib. DA900 A72 V.2, NEHGS

1529 "After 1641 the Bagnalls or Bagenals were definitely counted as "Irish Papists," and with good reason. Col. Walter Bagenal (1641-1653), a prominent member of the Supreme Council of the Catholic Confederation of Kilkenny, was hanged by Cromwell and in the next generation his son Col. Dudley Bagenal (1638-1712) recruited and commanded an infantry regiment for James II’s army. He was a member of the 1689 "Patriot" Parliament and was attainted by the victorious Williamites. Col. Walter's Co. Carlow estate was recovered by the family after the Restoration and a considerable property in that county was still in Bagenal hands until quite recent times. These properties were Dunleckny and Bennekerry near Carlow, a few miles north of Bagenalstown which was named from this family. This has been superseded by the older Gaelic name Muine Bheag, but it is still used by many of the inhabitants in preference to the town's official name.

The Bagenals, however, are not one of the old Anglo Norman families so many of whom became hibernicized, Sir Nicholas Bagenal first came to Ireland in 1539. He was of an influential Staffordshire family - the name is taken from a village in that shire. He left home in disgrace but, having been pardoned by Henry VIII, became a privy councillor and marshal of the English army and acquired estates around Newry.

One of his sons, Sir Henry Bagenal (1556-1598), was killed at the famous battle of theYellow Ford; he wrote a description of Ulster in 1586 and was a bitter foe of Hugh O'Neill,who had eloped with his sister Mabel Bagenal. His half-brother, Sir Samuel Bagenal, commanded a regiment under Carew in the Munster campaign. A generation later, this family of English soldiers and settlers was to take its place among the most determined opponents of English aggression. The reversion of the family to Protestantism came about through Walter Bagenal's marriage to Eleanor Beauchamp, the children of this second marriage being brought up in their mother's religion. One of these, Beauchamp Bagenal (1735-1802), a picturesque character of the eighteenth century duellist M.P. type, was a consistent supporter of the Catholic cause. Philip Henry Bagenal (b. 1 850) was a prolific political and legal writer.

The Irish name Ó Beigléighinn, normally anglicized Beglan and Beglin, has assumed the form Bagnall in some isolated cases, e.g. in Co. Meath. In the Drogheda area Begney has been recorded as synonymous with Bagnall. The O'Beglins were one of the hereditary medical families of mediaeval Ireland; the Annals of Loch Cé record the death in 1529 of Maurice O'Beglin. The sept was located principally in Co. Longford " http://www.goireland.com/Genealogy/

1539 (Kilbeggan) “The place was surrendered by Maurice 0 Shanghane the last abbot in I539, and the inquisition taken on the surrender was dated November 30. This document and others relating to the property of the institution are printed in Archdall, Monasticon 717-720.” The Place Names of West Meath DA990 W4 W3 1957

 1541 Year of death of the Franciscan Donat or Daniel Beaghan, also called O'Behechan, who was Bishop of Kildare at the beginning of the troubles which arose from the attempt to impose reformation on Ireland. His diocese was near the homeland of the O'Behans, which covered a considerable area of the country lying at the juncture of Cos. Kildare, Offaly and Leix.

1551 "In 1551 In 1551-2 a grant of, English liberty was made to Patrick Beaken, clerk, and his issue together with confirmation in his vicarage of Cowlebanagher (Id.) 922. In 1572-3 Coulbenker, part of the possessions - of the Hospital of St. John, was leased to -Murice Fitzgerald (Fiants of Eliz., 2,208), and, in 1591 the tithes of corn in Coulbanchar alias Cowlebenger, &c., were leased to Piers Hovenden (id.5695). Pope John XXIII.issued a mandate dated from Bologna l8th November, 1413, to the archdeacon of Leighlin, John O Churryn (Ó Currin), &c., to confer the perpetual vicarage of Girywennchair (Coolbanagher) in the diocese of Kildare, the yearly income of which did not exceed 8 marks, and which was vacant, by the death outside the Roman Curia of Maurice O beachayn (O'Beaghan) on Donnell O Malanna ( Ó Maol Factna, 0 Moloney ?) a priest of the diocese (Bullar. Johnt XX.III., an° 4° , lib. 36, f. 222, A. Lat.) Arch. Hib., DA900 A72 V2, NEHGS

1559 The names Beaghan and O'Beehan occur chiefly in Co. Kildare in the Fiants lists.

1568 “Assuming, then, that Bekan may have been called Di`seart Be`aca`in down to the end of the 15th century, how do we explain tile apparently total loss of the first half of the name by the later part of the following century? First let us look at that earliest occurrence of the 'abbreviated' form of' the name. In 1568 at Greenwich (London), Queen Elizabeth issued instructions granting to Sir Richard Bourke, Earl of Clanrickard, certain lands including 'The site of the monastery of St. John the Baptist in Tweme. land and titles in Tweme, 10s. chief rent out of Eagan in the country of McCoystelaghe. and the viscarages of Kylleare, Began and Annagh . . .' Tweme of course, is Tuam; Kylleare almost certainly represents Kildarra, and Began and Annagh stand for Bekan and Annagh, while Eagan may possibly be a mistake for Bagan (= Bekan also).

  No doubt it was the record of this grant to lord Clanrickard that provided the basis for Monsignor D'Alton's typically categorical statement in his History of the Archdiocese of Tuam that ‘When Turlough O'Connor established his power he gave the revenues of the rectory of the parish of Bekam to St. John's Abbey, Tuam.' Now the monastery of Canons Regular of St. Augustine in Tualli was indeed founded in the earlier 12th century, in the reign of Toirdhealbhach Mo`r 0` Conchubhair, king of Connacht and virtual high-king of Ireland, but . we have no way of knowing at what stage precisely or to what extent, the vicarages of Kildara, Bekan and Annagh became linked to the monastery. (Moonsignor D'Altoii makes an even more fanciful statement when lie declares that Bekan 'would also be liable, as a patrician church, for some tribute to the Archbishop of Armagh.') Béacán / Bekan DA995, B49, C65

 Autum,1569 "From thence the Lord Justice (Sir Henry Sidney) went on to Limerick, and he demolished some of the towns of Munster between Cork and Limerick. On this expedition Cluain-Dubhain and Baile-Ui-Bheachain* in Thomond, were taken by the Lord Justice, and he afterward proceeded to Galway." * Baile-Ui-Bheachain, i.e. the town of O'Beaghan. This name is now anglicised Balyvaughan, and applied to a small village in the parish of Drumcreehy, barony of Burren, and county of Clare. The castle of this place stood on the brink of the bay close to the village, but only a few scattered fragments of the walls are now to be seen. Annals Of The Kingdom Of Ireland, page 1633.

1586 “The next mention of Bekan of which we have record appears to be in the list of lands involved in the surrender and regrant of the estate of Sea`n Mac Costello in 1586 (referred to earlier); in that list the name appears as Beakan.”). Béacán / Bekan DA995, B49, C65

1587 "LITTLE (also Lyttle) These names can be of English, Scottish or Irish origin and are most common in Dublin and in Ulster, especially in counties Antrium and Fermanagh. The name is of course, English by original derivation and was descriptive of the bearer, from old English lyte, meaning "small". In Scotland, Little was the name of one of the lesser of the riding clans of the boarders. Neighbors of the Beatties, they were based in Eskdale and Ewesdale in Dumfriesshire and were recorded as one of the unruly clans of the West march in 1587. Little can also be a varient of Liddell, a territorial name from Liddle in Roxburgshire and indeed the two names were recorded as synonymous in the Poyntzpass district of Co. Armagh towards the end of the nineteenth century. At the same time Little was recorded as a synonym of Beggan in Co. Monaghan. Beggan, Gaelic Ó Beagáin or Ó Beacáin , was a name of a Sept of the Clones- Roslea - Donagh area and most of this Sept anglicised to Little. However, it is clear that a large number of members of the riding clans of the Scottish Borders settled in Fermanagh at the time of the Plantation and settlers called Little were recorded there in the 17th century. It will therefore be difficult without a confirmed family tree, to determine the origins of any individual. Ulster Book of Surnames , Ref. CS 2415, B45, 1988. NEGHS

1615 ROYAL VISITATION OF CASHEL AND EMLY, 1615

THE state of the Protestant Establishment in Ireland during the reign of James I., was deplorable in the extreme. The clergy -were for the most part unlearned, in several cases not being able to read or write. Writing "on A discovery of the decayed state of the Kingdom of Ireland" in 16O4, Justice Saxey tells us they are " more fit to sacrifice to a calf than to meddle with the religion of God." And that one of them is " a poor singing man void of knowledge of his grammar rules"; another is "utterly unlearned," and there was "not one able preacher in all the province (Munster), nor three sufficient bishops in all the Kingdom." They were "mere idols and ciphers," says Sir John Davies in his letter to Cecil. Naturally in the hands of such men we could not expect to find religion in a prosperous state. In.several places there were no ministers at all, and frequently 'one minister held several benefices, with the result that religious service was seldom held. There is no service," says Sir John Davies, no christening of children, no receiving of the Sacrament,no Christian meeting or assembly, no, not once a year, in a word, no more demonstration of religion than amongst the Tartars or Cannibals." The patron appropriated the profits of the benefice,and a meagre salary was given to the incumbent. The churches themselves were in nearly all cases in ruin,"....... p279, In the same year (1607), the lord Deputy, accompanied by Sir John Davies made a journey through three counties in Ulster_ vis., Monaghan, Fermanagh, and Cavan.

1623 I stopped at Volume 32 at this point for I found a reference to The Letters of Richard Burke as having been published for the first time in Vol 48 of the Journal of Galway Arch. & Hist. Society. They are more properly called the Clanricard letters 1605-1673. Richard Burke was the President of Connacht from 1604 to 1616 and then Governor of Galway till 1635. He owned all of East Galway among parts of other counties. I had not intended to use the Journal of Galway Arch. & Hist.

1656 "Beggs Begg and Beggs are now almost equally numerous in Ireland, the latter belonging mainly to north-east Ulster and the former to Dublin and adjacent Leinster counties. Ulster families so called may be of non-Irish origin - there is of course, an English surname Bigge. It is reasonably certain that the Beggs of the rest of the country are of native Irish stock, their name is of the epithet class: the word beag (beg) means small. It has been used as a surname from very early times and occurs in every sort of record from the fourteenth century. Among the more interesting Beggs are four who were outlawed as Jacobites (two of these were from Galway, the only place outside Munster and Leinster where they are at all prominent-their close association with Ulster was of later date.

May 27 1798 "Three hundred assassins, headed by Dennis Carthy and James Maher, set out from the house of William Carthy of Ballycarney, uncle of the former, and declared their intention of putting him to death in the presence of Mrs. Carthy, who endeavoured to dissuade them from it, affirming that Mr. Turner was universally esteemed and respected. The house was defended for some time by him, and eight of his protestant parishioners, who had sought an asylum in it. Mr. Turner, soon after the attack was made, received a shot in his jaw, which entirely disabled him from attending to the defense of his house. As it was double, and the assailants seemed to direct all their fury against its front, the besieged, after the death of Mr. Turner, paid no attention to its rear, into which the rebels entered, having been admitted, it is said, by the treachery of the butler. 

  After having murdered Mr. Turner, and five of his protestant parishioners, they set fire to his dwelling- and out-offices, in which the bodies of the deceased were consumed.

The walls of an old wind-mill on top of a hill served as a fold to contain the victims who supplied the sacrifice of the day; and when the rebel ranks were on parade, they were led forth and butchered in their presence as a regalement to them; and what was very singular, the executioners often knelt down, crossed themselves, and said a prayer, before they immolated the victims, who were frequently almost famished before they were led to execution, from the bad and scanty food with with they were supplied.

Witnesses did not here Byrne's answer; but Beaghan rushed into the mill, and swore by Jesus Christ he would neither pick them or choose them, but would take the first that would come to his hand. He than laid his hand on one of the Pipers, and turned him and his brother out. Witnesses heard the report of a gun, and immediately each man was called out. Kean was led out in the same manner. Beaghan than led out a stranger, who resisted, and cried out, "Murder!" on which Beaghan pushed him against the wall, gave him two boxes, and said, "Damm you, you heretic dog!" and having dragged him out, he was killed within three yards of the door. Next morning, about eight o'clock, witness was taken out to be shot, when he saw the two Pipers lying dead, with eighteen or nineteen bodies more. Witness was saved by a rebel who took compassion on him. The Irish Rebellion of 1898, Page 766 DA910 M87.

Aug.24,1799 "An authentic account of the behavior, conduct and confession of James Beaghan, who was executed on vinegar -hill, on Saturday the 24th day of August,1799; taken before Christian Wilson, esquire, high sheriff of the county of Wexford, and J. H. Lyster, esquire, one of the justices of the peace for the said county.

  The day but one before his execution, two popish priests went to visit him, and upon their entering his cell, he exclaimed against them in these words: "Begone from me, you accursed, who have been the cause of my eternal damnation; for were it not for you, I never would have been guilty of murder."--Having so said, he turned from them, and requested that they be put out; and in some short time after, he requested that Captain Boyd might be sent for, to whom he made the following confession:

  I James Beaghan, acknowledge and confess that I am guilty of the crime for which I am to suffer; but that I did not commit it from ill will to the people that were murdered, but from the order of Luke Byrne; I could not disobey him--- no person dare to refuse the orders of the commanders. I am sure that any man in command could save the lives of the poor, every man that was a protestant was called an orangeman, and every one was to be killed, from the poorest man in the country. Before the rebellion, I never heard there was any hatred between Roman Catholics and protestants, they always lived peaceably together. I always found the protestant better masters and more indulgent landlords than my own religion; during the rebellion, I never saw anyone to interfere to prevent murder, but one Byrne, who saved a man. I think all that were present were as guilty as those who purpertrated the murders. I was thinking that we were all equally guilty, that prevented me from flying the country. The women were numerous, and were as bad as the men. The rebels treated the prisoners with great severity, very different from the way I have been treated in gaol. They thought it no more a sin to kill a protestant than a dog; Had it not been that they were so soon squashed, they would have fought with each other for the property of the protestants. They were beginning before the battle of Viniger-hill. Ever since the rebellion I never heard one of the rebels express the least sorrow for what was done; on the contrary, I have heard them say, they were sorry whilst they had the power they did nor kill more, and that there were not half enough killed. I know that the rebels were determined to rise if the French should come; and I believe that they did not give up half their arms. There are guns, bayonets and pikes hid in the country.

  Now gentleman, remember what I tell you: if you and the protestants are ever in the power of the Catholics again, as they are now in yours, they will not leave one of you alive; you will all go smack smooth; even those that campaigned with them, if things had gone well with them, they would have in the end been killed. I have heard them say so many times.

Aug.25,1799 "Having arrived at the place of execution, Captain Boyd brought his aside, and read his confession, and asked him if it were correctly taken down, to which he answered in the affirmative. Just as the executioner was about to turn him off, he called out saying, "Stop!" and lifting up his cap, said with a very loud voice, "Captain Boyd, you have taken down my confession perfectly correct; if it were not for the priests I never would have been guilty of murder, nor have dragged five unfortunate persons out of the windmill to be murdered." Amongst these five, were the sons of old Minchin the carpenter. The Irish Rebellion of 1898, Page 734 DA910 M87.

  FATHER JOHN SUTTON

  "At a short distance from Lett's house in Enniscorthy, Mr. and Mrs. Hayden met father Sutton, and implored his protection; but he said, that he could not do any thing for them: and soon after Mr. Hayden, while his wife lent on his arm, was murdered by the barbarous popish rabble in the prenence of, and quite close to, The Reverend John Sutton, who made no other oppisition to them, than by saying, "Fie! Fie!" James Beaghan, one of the supposed murderers of Mr. Hayden, was taken up and tried, at the instance of Mr. Sutton, who prosecuted him to conviction; but not for eleven or twelve months after its perpetration, It is very extradordinary that this reverend gentleman should conceal, so long, the guilt of the assassin; and that a sence of his duty towards God and his country, did not prompt him sooner to bring the delinquent to condign punishment.

  From the following fact we may fairly infer, that he was actuated rather by a sence of fear than justice:

  Counsellor William Turner, who prosecuted on behalf of the crown for crimes commited in the county of Wexford, during the rebellion, declared openly, in the town of Enniscorty, some time in the month of May, 1799, that he believed he should be under the necessity of prosecuting Mr. Sutton, for being privy to the murder of Mr. Heyden, as he must have known, but never disclosed, the perpatration of that horrid crime. In a few days after, Mr. Sutton gave information against Beaghan, and prosecuted him to conviction. Mrs. Heyden, who was well aquainted with Beaghan, positively declares,that she did not see him among the persons who murdered her husband; and that if he had been there,she must have known him. It is supposed then, that Beaghan, who was old, profligate, and had committed many other crimes, was made a victim on this occasion, to silence the suspicion which prevailed against this reverend gentleman. Mrs. Hayden declares that Sutton never put his arm around her husband, though he positively asserts that he did so.__It is well known, that many assassins were concerned in that murder, and yet Beaghan was the only one whom Sutton selected for prosecution.___

This priest, and many others, frequently visited Viniger-hill, where murders were daily committed; and it is very singular, that Beaghan was the only person against whom any of the sacerdotal order gave information. The Irish rebellion of 1798. DA910 M87. page 903

Sept. 30, 1799 "Beaghan or Beahan Confession Tract of a letter from Dr. Caulfield to Dr. Troy

"Yesterday I paid 10§ postage for Beaghan confession or declaration to W. Boyd, and a decent cover abusing myself and threatening Doctor Frank (Kavanagh) with the gallows.

This wretch Beaghan or Beahan has been described to me some weeks before his execution as little better than a idiot, but infected with some mischievous dispositions. This account was given me by the Rev. Patt Gogly, an honest sensible Parish priest, who lodged in the same house where Beaghan was a servant. However when sentence of death was pronounced against him, he sent for the priest, a Rev. Philip Stafford of this town, who attended him the day before and on the very day of his execution in the jail here, when he appeared (tho somewhat wild or scared) very penetent, and received the sacrament with apparent devotion. During these two days W. Boyd and Sheriff Wilson visited him and, as he told W Rev. Stafford, questioned him, were there arms still concealed in the country? He answered he did not know, that perhaps there may, but if there were they could never appear, they could never be found. They than asked were there many priests at the camp of Viniger Hill, particular were any of the Wexford clergy there? Answer, No; he saw no clergyman there but Kearns and general Murphy. this is Beaghan's declaration to Father Stafford. Rev. Wm Synott of Inniscorthy my V.G. informs me that no clergymen attended at the execution, but that immediately before it took place, Wm B. asked the convict in the presence of all who attended, was the declaration made to him true? But mentioned no particular of it; Beaghan answered it was, that he may rely on every word of it. Now my dear Sir, from these materials I think you frame any last speech you please, even the supposed one, without authentication, let who will believe or damit. I showed it to Sir James who explained, by god it is a wicked maneuvre; but how can we investigate it?

I am certainly pestered with Beaghan's speech or confession by post from Dublin, ? letter stuffed with ?

Mess Boyd & Wilson called on me last Saturday to disavow and disprove that publication; i.e. They declared it was done without their knowledge, that it set forth falsehood, and not the whole truth, that as their names were mentioned in it, they must in justice to themselves and to truth, give and publish a true statement of the transaction. I told them they need not take the ---- ---- ---- ---- ---- ---- on its face too clearly to impose on anyone who did not like to be deceived, or was not prejudiced so you may expect soon to see a second edition of that valuable piece corrected, enlarged, improved.

Has not the busiaes ? some likenly to verart? and vindicus? Rev. W. Synnott's declaration relative to Beaghan could have no weight, because he can only speak from hearsay. I am convinced there was no Catholic present, and most probably, no other but the yeomanly escort. I cannot call on Rev. Philip Stafford, as I hereby suspended him for misconduct unconnected with the Rebellion. Wexford 7. Oct. 1799

Oct. 10, 1837. Tyrrellspass , On Sunday evening Jack Daly called on me at Killbeggan and contributed as much as he could towards the investigation represented to him by me. in the parishes neighbouring on Killbeggan not one man could be found to give the Irish common pronunciation to the townland names. He was, on the whole, very useful to me. Cill Bheacáin is the present name of Killbeggan, which signifies 'the church of Beagán.' The patron day of this parish is on July 24, the eve of St. James' day. Killbeggan old burial ground is a very extensive one lying about a hundred perches to the south or south-east of Killbeggan. The monastery of St. Beagán, stood formerly near this burial place. There is not a trace of it now visible. The ground on which it is said to have stood is now a green meadow. There is no vestige of any edifice even within this old burial place. The monastery is said to have been very extensive. There was formerly a well at the monastery called Tobar Beacáin. It was closed some years ago. 1. 0 Donovan points out in a letter from Tullamore, January 1,1838, that the remains of the modern Cistercian monastery were in existence seven or eight years before that date. 0 Conor is wrong in supposing these to have belonged to Beagán's foundation. The Ordinance Survey Letters

1838 Bea`ca`n." is also the form recorded from local Irish-speakers by the topographical staff of the Ordnance Survey in 1838. The Ordnance Survey Namebook remarks that the name was 'pronounced Bayockaun,' adding however, that the meaning was 'St. Becan's Parish". Based no doubt on this suggested meaning, the leading member of the Survey's topographical team, John O'Donovan, was responsible for putting into circulation the form Cill Beacáin (sic)."

  "The Beagans fled Donagh Ireland to Ft. Augustus, Scotland. Aftersome years they were forced out and settled in PEI. A lord Seltkirk had a land grant in PEI of 70 lots. A lot being 10,000 acres.

Complainant stated that he had been engaged by defendant from November until May, at £3 2s; got 6s. 8d. out of this; had a falling out with another boy, and got hurt, so that he was not able to work.

Defendant said that the boy was able enough to work; that it was his own fault that he got hurt;....Complainant said he only wanted what was due to him.

Chairman--That's all very plausible; but we're not fools. A man is worth a shilling a day now, where he would not be worth eightpence in winter.
