Father*Thomas Gerrard1 b. 23 Jul 1782, d. 7 Feb 1868
Mother*Mary Anne Rotheram1 b. 1791
Birth*1807William Gerrard was born about 1807 in Liscartan, County Meath, Ireland.1
(Son) Census Ireland 18211821William appeared on the census taken in 1821 in the household of his parents, Mary Anne and Thomas Gerrard, in Liscartan, County Meath. He was 14 years old.1
Education*1824William was identified as the son of Thomas, generousus, when he entered Trinity College, Dublin, at age 17 in 1824. (According to a Latin dictionary, generousus meant of noble birth, aristocratic, well-bred.)2,3
Marriage*3 January 1833He married Harriett Rebecca Hanna of Gardiner Place in the city of Dublin, daughter of William Hanna, on 3 January 1833 in Parish Church of St. George, Dublin. They were married by the Reverend Francis Chamley and their respective father's signed as witnesses.4,5,6
Historical Note Many of Ireland's large and beautiful estates were in financial difficulties after the Great Famine, and the Encumbered Estates Acts in 1848 and 1849 allowed for the sale of the many estates that went bankrupt during those famine years. However in many cases the estate was entailed by the laws of inheritance so the Acts also removed those restrictions. A special court was established to facilitate the speedy sale of lands in order to reduce indebtedness. Documents known as sale notices were prepared advertising the estate. The "Encumbered Landed Estates Court Rentals" were, in effect, sales catalogues and included urban and rural properties. The documents provided the date and place of sale with a description of the estate and its location together with a map. The details of the owner were given with a list of tenants with their rents and tenure. If the property was held by lease, then the particulars named those contracted, and could involve one or more generations.7
Land to Be Sold9 November 1855The commissioners' "sales catalog" announced that the castle, town, lands and farm of Liscartan, County Meath, held under a lease for three lives, renewable forever, and containing 734 acres, 0 roods, and 13 perches English Statute Measure, situate in the barony of Lower Navan and county of Meath, a valuable freehold estate, was to be sold in one lot by the commissioners for the Sale of Incumbered Estates in Ireland on Friday, 9 November 1855 at the hour of twelve o'clock noon. Heir at law Thomas Gerrard of Liscartan, Esq. who was then in his 74th year, his eldest son and heir William Gerrard Esq. and James Cullen, merchant, were identified as owners. William Edward Steele Esq. and Alexander Parker Esq. were identified as petitioners.

The descriptive particulars of the Liscartan Estate explained that the Castle, Mansion House, Offices, Demesne and Lands of Liscartan had been for upwards of a century the residence of the Gerrard family. They were described as beautifully situated in the heart of one of the finest counties in Ireland -- the county of Meath -- on the banks of the Blackwater River, within about two miles of the town of Navan, where the Dublin and Drogheda Railway Company had a station, six miles of the towns of Kells and Athboy, and seven of the town of Trim -- all market and post towns -- and surrounded by the demesne and lands of Ardbraccan, Scallanstown, Mullaghard, Rathaldron, Whistlemount and Knockumber, the estates of the Lord Bishop of Meath and other well-connected people.

The offices included a large coach house, stabling for 20 horses, a steam house, a harness room, cow house and root house -- all slated -- large barns, a straw house, a feeding house, a large shed, piggeries, a forge, a workshop, large granaries and a foddering yard, an enclosed haggard, with several corn stands, and a pump attached to the steam house.

The lands, which were described as well planted, watered, sheltered and divided -- consisting of arable, pasture, and meadow land of the primest quality, capable of producing most abundant and excellent crops, were intersected by the High Road leading from Kells to Navan, and also by the Kells Extension of the Dublin and Drogheda Railway, to that their situation was peculiarly advantageous for farming purposes. There was also a very valuable and extensive corn mill, with a kiln and other suitable buildings, now in full work, and possession a never-failing supply of water from the Blackwater River, belonging to, and part of, the estate. "The river abounds with fish of the finest description."

The full catalog, complete with conditions of the sale, history of Liscartan's deed records, names of the extended Gerrard family, and maps of the property may be viewed here.8

Research Notes*1821William Gerrard belongs in our Gerrard research project somewhere, we're just not sure where. We have, on occasion, tried to talk ourselves into thinking that William Gerrard of Tankardstown and Dormstown in the county of Meath was the same William, although when we think more about it, he would probably have been much older. Who knows where this William belongs?3,1
Occupation*William's occupation was reported on the 1821 census as a Barony Constable and a weaver.1
Census Ireland 1821*1821Jane and William Gerrard were enumerated on the census taken in 1821 at house 48 in Ardbraccan, County Meath. Their surname was transcribed as "Genard". William, who did not report having any acreage, was 60 years of age and gave his occupation as Barony Constable and weaver. Jane was 55.

Obituary25 October 1914Her obituary appeared on page 15 of the Jacksonville Daily Journal on 25 October 1914 and, copied as it was found online, read:

"Mrs. Charlotte Gibbs Gordon died at her home, 310 West College Street, Jacksonville, IL at 7 a.m. Saturday morning, October 24th. Her death as due to a stroke of apoplexy which came upon her shortly before the noon house on Friday. At that time she was discovered by her son, Freling, seated at a table with her head resting on one of her arms. She was unconscious when discovered and remained in that condition until claimed by death. She was to all appearances in her usual health an hour previous to her discovery by her son, and had not been complaining of ill health so far as is known. Charlotte Gibbs was a daughter of Robert and Rebecca Gibbs who were born and grew to man and womanhood in Yorkshire, England, and who, after their marriage at their home October 13, 1830, came to America and settled in the vicinity of Utica, New York, where three of the ten children born of this union were born. After a residence at that place of four years, the family came west and found a temporary home near where how stands the town of Riggston, in Scott County. Later they purchased a farm southeast of Winchester where they remained until after the birth of their daughter, Charlotte, on January 21, 1847. Six years later the family removed to a farm 2 1/2 southwest of Lynnville, IL which had been purchased by Mr. Gibbs, and which continued to be the family home until November 29, 1867 when the daughter, Charlotte, was united in marriage to James Benton Gordon who preceded his wife in death November 9, 1899. Of the five brothers and four sisters of Mrs. Gordon, but one now survives. That one is Charles Gibbs residing in the Point neighborhood west of this city. There was born to Mr. and Mrs. Gordon eight children: Mrs. Virginia Bell of Chicago, Miss Frances Gordon of Jacksonville, Mrs. L.R. Day of Winchester, Felix Gordon of Murrayville, Mrs. George T. Cass of Danville, Carl O. Gordon of Spokane, Washington, Mrs. Earl May of Danville, and Freling Gordon of Jacksonville, all of whom survive to mourn the death of a loving and much loved mother and friend.
Shortly after their marriage, Mr. and Mrs. Gordon took up their residence in Lynnville where they continued to live until three years since when the family removed to Jacksonville to reside.
Mrs. Gordon was a member of the Christian Church at Lynnville, IL and a consistent Christian, who was beloved by a large circle of friends and neighbors who will sincerely mourn her sudden passing from their midst. The sympathy of a host of friends will go out to the members of the family and the brother who are bereft of their loved one.
Funeral services will be held in the Central Christian Church at 2 p.m. Monday afternoon. Interment will be in Diamond Grove Cemetery, Jacksonville, IL."2

(Child) Will13 December 1817Eliza's mother made her will dated 13 December 1817 naming her deceased husband Michael, their children, William, Mary Anne, Frances Eliza, Eliza and James, and her husband's trustees Thomas Hinds and Michael's brother John Gibney. A transcription of Anne's will read:

"In the name of God Amen! I Anne Gibney, widow of Michael Gibney, late of Dormstown in the County of Meath do make this my last will and testament. Whereas by a certain deed of settlement hearing date the fourth day of July, one thousand seven hundred and ninety-four my said beloved husband did agree to invest the sum of three thousand pounds, part of my fortune therein mentioned in Thomas Hinds and John Gibney, therein mentioned, and the survivor of them, his heirs, executors, administrators and assigns to, for and upon such uses, trusts, and purposes as therein mentioned. And by said deed, it is agreed that in case the said Michael should die in my life time, leaving more than one child living of our marriage, that it should be lawful for me to devise said three thousand pounds or the rents, interest or produce thereof to and among such children, in such shares as I should appoint and for want of such appointment to be equally divided among such children. And whereas the said Michael Gibney disposed of said sum of three thousand pounds to such uses as he thought proper, without handing over the same to the said trustees, or either of them. And in order, as far as in him lay, to secure the said sum of three thousand pounds pursuant to the intent of said recited settlement, did by deed, dated the eighth of October, eighteen hundred and three, assign all his interest in and to the lands and premises therein mentioned to said Thomas Hinds and John Gibney, and the survivor of them, his executors, administrators and assigns, for the terms of lives and years by the leases thereof, granted to, and for the uses and purposes therein particularly mentioned. And whereas the said Michael Gibney is since dead, having made and published his last will and testament (all in his own handwriting) and after mentioning therein, that he had not handed over said three thousand pounds to the before named trustees. He after desiring his lawful debts to be paid, devised to me all his freehold and leasehold interests, as also all his personal property, to be disposed of, to and among myself and children as therein mentioned but by said will made no specific appointment of said three thousand pounds.

Now, I therefore, in case of the property so left, and devised shall extend thereto, give and devise onto my eldest son William Gibney M.D. twenty pounds, to purchase some trifle to remind him of me. It is not from want of the greatest affection for him, he ever and always deserved my warmest love and approbation, but he knows, and approves of the disposal of my property amongst the rest of my children. I give and bequest to my beloved Mary Anne Gibney five hundred pounds there out and to my beloved Francis Eliza Gibney, five hundred pounds thereout. And to my beloved Eliza Gibney, five hundred pounds thereout. And to my beloved son James Gibney, three hundred pounds thereout. But, if before I die, he the said James Gibney, should procure (thro: the interest of his Uncle Gibney or other relatives) a permanent situation so as to enable him to do without it, I devise him (like his brother William) to give up all right to what I leave him to his three sisters, Maryanne, Francis Eliza and Eliza Gibney, said respective legacies to be paid my sons and daughters, upon their attaining the age of twenty one years, or days of marriage, which shall first happen, And it is my will and desire that in case the property, wherein of my said husband has died possessed of, shall not extend to the entire sum of three thousand pounds, the share, or proportion of each of my said children, shall bear a proportion of such diminution, thereof as may happen. And it is also my will that in case any of my children shall die before attaining his, her or their respective ages, as aforesaid, or being married, then the share of his, her or them so dying shall go and be divided amongst such survivors and share alike and I do hereby constitute my said three daughters Maryanne, Frances Eliza and Eliza Gibney or the survivors of them as the case may be, residuary legates of all such worldly substance as I shall possessed of. And I do also nominate my brother-in-law John Gibney Esq. M.D. and my son William Gibney Esq. M.D. Executors of this my will. In (page part torn off) witness whereof I set my hand and seal this thirteenth day of December one thousand eight hundred and seventeen."

Her will was signed and sealed by Anne Gibney; and her sister Catherine (Gerrard) Small, her sister's husband John Small, and J. Byrne all signed and sealed as witnesses.1
Administration*25 August 1826Eliza was granted administration of her mother's estate on 25 August 1826.2
