  • Note:
    Christening Sponsors were James & Mary Tranery in Carnew parish living in Tombreen.

    Peter is recorded in the Kilavaney church records on the birth of his son Thomas, in Dec 1842, as being 22 yrs old, which puts his birth date at 1820. He is also recorded as Peter Tranery in that record, although the name Peter Traynor is used 2 yrs later when Mary, their second child is born. (Catherine Mulhall is the spouse in both records).

    He was a blacksmith by trade and moved to the Tinahely area of Co. Wicklow where he practiced as a blacksmith.
    The forge was actually in Kilballyowen, just east of Tinahely. His first son Tom took over a forge in Ballinglen.
    Catherine Mulhall appears to have been from the Kilavaney/Coolafancy area, she died first in 1858 at age 46 and was buried there. There is no record of their marriage in Kilavaney or Hacketstow. It is believed that they were married in Carnew, however the records are in poor condition and the proof has yet to be found.
    According to his tombstone, Peter died in 1886 at the age of 64 which comports to the above birthrates of 1822-1823.
    However, his civil death registration is listed on FamilySearch as being aged 74, which puts his birth at 1812. GS Film # 101593
    He and his wife, Catherine Mulhall are buried at the cemetery at Coolafancy Co. Wicklow. The grave is at the back of the church, beside the door to the side of the church.

    It is believed that Peter Traynor was involved in the manufacture of the iron railings that surround Trinity College, Dublin.
    The baptismal records for his son, Peter, show Mary Traynor and Tom Mulhall as the witnesses.
    Peter Tranery in the 1851 Griffith's Valuations for Kilballyowen, Co. Wicklow. He was a tenant of a Mary Kavanagh, with a house forge and garden - it is believed that this is the same Peter Traynor. He is a subtenant of Earl Fitzwilliam who owned most of the land in the Tinahely area. The Griffith Valuation was taken during the height of the Great Irish Famine (1845-1852).

    For a very interesting history of the nearby town of Carnew, see http://kennytree.com/Irish_Research/carnew_kevinLee.htm

    Apparently, Carnew was a major center for the iron industry because of the nearby oak forest in Shillelagh. These were, among other things, burned to produce charcoal for the smelting of iron ore, which, apparently came from Bristol in the UK.
    Thus, it is of little surprise, that so many of the Traynors learned the iron working business and became blacksmiths.
