The Harley Charter 75 A. 40 (C. CXLIX)
The Harley Charter 75 A. 40 (C. CXLIX) contains the examination of witnesses and depositions of the same, produced on behalf of the Abbot and Convent of Margam in St. John's Church, Cardiff, before the Prior of Taleletho, or Talley (a Cistercian Monastery in co. Carmarthen), commissary of the Abbot of Wigmore, co. Hereford, and Master Geoffrey de Burgo, Canon of Llandaff, judges appointed by the Pope to hear the appeal moved between the said Abbey of Margam and St. Peter's Abbey, Gloucester, on Wednesday after the Feast of St. Agatha (i.e., 8th February), A.D. 1262 for 1263.
Viz., evidence of Frater John Comyn, monk of Margam, concerning Philip de Lulliwelle, proctor of Margam, who moved before the Rural Dean of Llandaff in a cause touching the tithes of the Abbey of Margam in the parish of Lankaruan, that it should be reduced to writing, but it had been by Margam referred to the Roman Court ; of William Sortes, monk of Margam ; of Philip de Kaermardin, monk of Margam ; of Nicholaus de Kanetone, phisicus ; of John de Novavilla, monk of Margam ; and of Roger de Staunton, clerk, Vice-official of Llandaff. There were also present John Peruat, John Du, and others, when the motion was overruled.
It would appear that the appointed judges decided the cause in favour of Margam Abbey, and fined the Abbot of Gloucester ^100; for the next writing we have on record in relation to the matter is a deed containing the certificate (T. 180 ; C. Ml) of the Dean of Grunuth to the Prior of Tallyletho, commissary of the Abbot of Wigmore, and to Master Geoffrey de Burgo, Canon of Landaff, judges delegated by the Pope, that he has thrice formally warned the Abbot and Convent of St. Peter, Gloucester, to pay to Margam Abbey, before St. Andrew's Day next, under penalty of ecclesiastical censure, the sum of ;ioo fine imposed by the said judges for rash and calumnious vexation. Dated on the Octave of St. James, i Aug. 1265

Hello Suzanne,
Nice to here from you.
I'm recovering from my second heart attack within the last 12 months so I'm a little slow at the moment.
I'd left the St John tree alone for awhile and been looking at my "Connell" family from Summerhill, County Meath. Compared to the St John's they are easier to trace in Aust, although being nice catholics they breed like rabbits!

Thanks for the attachments, I'm aware of most of it, but again thanks.

It's always hard to determine how much to give to fellow researchers or how much they want. some people are only after their line , others want everything.
This could turn out to be a rather LONG e-mail. YOU WILL NEED TO HAVE MY FAMILY TREE IN FRONT OF YOU WHEN LOOKING AT THIS E-MAIL..

I have only found 3 early James St John's in AUST ( before 1852 ) they are,

1/ James St John ( I refer to him as J1) the convict, arrived via the " King William" arrived in Aust 1840 to serve 7 years.

2/ James St John ( J2). The son of J1 & his Irish wife Honora ( nee O'Neill). Arrived in AUST 1852 as an immigrant aboard the "Kate". on board also his sisters Eliza ( I read her as Elizabeth) & Bridget. These girls families are on the "tree" I sent you.
By the way another daughter, Johanna ( Judith??) also came to AUST via "The Victory" which arrived in Freemantle, in the state of WA,AUST 1854.

3/ James St John ( J3) died at Yass, in the state of NSW,AUST 26Feb1877. According to his death cert he had lived in AUST for 37 years, that makes him arriving in 1840.

Now, before I look at some detail on each James I'm attaching the following,

1/ The death cert of J3 who was 81 when he died.
2/ The death cert of Mary DARLING (nee Oats) J1's AUST wife he married in 1852.
3/ The marriage cert of James Walter St John , The son of J1 & Mary Darling.
4/ Tipperary Family History Research ( TFHR) doc confirming the marriage of James St John & Honora O'Neill, married 9Aug1821.
5/ TFHR doc of the Baptism of John & Elizabeth St JOHN, children of James & Honora. ( Note: I think you would know this but sometimes in IRE they " dropped" the "O" when recording info, something to do with the English wanting to "angelise" Irish names I've read somewhere).
6/ TFHR doc of the Baptism of Judith & Bridget St JOHN, children of James & Honora.
7/ TFHR doc of the Baptism of Michael St JOHN, son of James & Honora.


J1 Comments:-

We know that J1 was transported & arrived in AUST 1840 to serve 7 years. He got his Cert of freedom 7April1847. He was married to Mary Darling ( nee Oats) @ St Mary's RC church in Sydney 16 Jan 1854. All his transport & convict records point to him being born abt 1800.

J2 Comments:-

James the son of J1 & Honora together with 2 of his sisters, Eliza ( ??? maybe the Elizabeth in 5/ above slight difference of only 3 years in their ages) & Bridget aboard the "Kate" arriving in AUST 1852. I've not been able to find any other details on J2, No death,burial , marriage or children anywhere in any State of AUST. He disappears. I am yet to check if he left AUST. Hey, maybe he went to the USA!

Now for the hard bits.

J3 Comments:-

I've never considered J3 to be J1. Looking at the death cert ( I hope it is a clear copy for you ) J3 died at age 81 making him born abt 1796. He had been in NSW,AUST for 37 years making his arrival 1840. He married Anne ( Ann) Reilly at age 50 at Yass, NSW, making the marriage date abt 1846. There is no record in NSW of their marriage, that does not bother me as lots of early peoples told "fibs" about their births/marriage dates. So if they married in 1846 abd this is J1 what about his 1852 marriage to Mary Darling? What about the Cert of Freedom only issued to J1 in 1847( after his 7 year term? My understanding is the you needed the Governor's ok to get marriage while still a convict, very rarely given and again no record. Both J3 & Anne were buried at Yass Catholic Cemetery but no record in the 3 cem's in Yass are found. I know that some of the earlier Cem records were destroyed in a bush fire abt 1940 and some of the Cem's were subject to very bad flooding. More on this below. Maybe I'm being a little bit harsh with the records because informant's, in this case Anne, sometimes did'nt know or lied about dates.
What makes the whole James thing worse is now coming.

Mary Darling Comments:-

Mary married J1 in 1852, she was the widow of John Darling. Mary & John had 3 children, Ellen( born 1842), Michael( abt 1843) & James( abt 1847).
I know little of James & Mary's early life together. They had only 1 child, James Walter St John born 13 July, 1857. It appears that Mary Darling and J1 divorced/ separated as her Death Cert only mentions her 1st hubby John Darling with no mention of J1 or James Walter. Given that her children to John were old enough to have known of her marriage to J1 and the birth of James Walter plus they must have lived together at one stage it's all rather strange.

Sorry have not come across your Michael St John. Perhaps the 1911 cencus records of Ireland, suppose you've tried that anyway.

I'm nearing 55 so have decided to put my home up for sale. No wife, no kids. So I'm going to travel around Aust looking for J1 to J3.

Sorry if I've gone on to long about the J's but I've not sure enough to put J3 as the head of my ST John line ( that's why he was not on the tree I sent you). Any thoughts?

Kind Regards

Michael - Baptism 1/Jan/1837, Parish DRAGAN/CLONEEN, address Kilnagranagh, register DRAN/

James, ( I call him the convict because there are so,so many Jame's in the family, tipical Irish situ ) was tried at Tipperary on 5/Mar/1840 for "selling counterfeit coin" and "uttering base coin" ( forged coins). his age was given as 40. He was given a 7 year sentence, held at Dublin Castle until being transported to New South Wales{NSW} ( Sydney,Australia) aboard the "King William" 28/April/1840 arriving in NSW 18/Aug/1840. His address was given as Fethand (? perhaps Fethard).

He did his 7 years and on 7/April/1847 was granted his Certificate-of-Freedom. he was said to be 47 years old then. Hence his birth about/in 1800.

Some time in the 7 years Honora had died. I've no details of that.

Three of James children, James 25, Eliza 22 and Bridget 18, came to Sydney on the emigrant ship "Kate" in 1852. they arrived under the scheme which brought convicts wives and their children to the Colony. At some stage Johanna also came out. All the girls married.

James, the convict remarried 16/Jan/1854 to Mary Darling ( nee Oats) at St.Mary's Roman Catholic Church in Sydney. Mary was the widow of another former convict John Darling ( John was from Fermanagh, Ireland, anyway that's another story!

Mary set out from Kingstown,Ireland, 20/Sept/1839 as an Irish Immigrant aboard the "Crusader" arriving in Sydney 15/Jan/1840.

James and Mary only had one child, James Walter ( another James!!!) James Walter is my great grandfather.

We don't know where or when James and Mary died. So records were not so good back then, other great. I have good suspicions but it is likely to turn out the the best guess will be an assumed one. I don't like that much but other than raising the dead it we all I can do.

I've a little more on James, the convict, more on Mary, but I think will give you an idea where I'm from.

Hope this all is ok and not too much.

Kind regards,

Michael St John.
