ST. PATRICK’S CATHEDRAL AND GRAVEYARD,
LOMAN’S STREET, TRIM, CO. MEATH.
St Patrick’s graveyard is a relatively small graveyard enclosed by an old stone wall covered with ivy. There are three gates of access and exit, two at the front of the church and one in the south wall. Paths surround the perimeter of the graveyard. There were approximately 200 monuments to be measured, plotted and photographed. The first thing to do was to decide where to set out our baseline from which all our surveying would be done.
After a close inspection of the graveyard was completed we decided to run our baseline from the north western corner along the north boundary to the north eastern corner. This was the best side to start as the string run was uninterrupted and the ground was level.
After setting the north baseline we used triangulation to get important points of the building i.e. corners. The next step was to get offsets to the paths, boundary walls and trees. Finally we used the baseline to plot the graves. This process was repeated for the south, east and west, boundaries. Each gravestone was numbered sketched, photographed, measured and all inscriptions and carvings were recorded. We also did research into all the historical background of the graveyard and we put together a nature report on the flora and fauna within the graveyard.
An inked plan was produced, and included all buildings, trees and graves.
We wish to record our thanks to Very Reverend J.A.G. Barrett, Rector of Trim and Dean of Clonmacnoise for permission to record the inscriptions. The project was made easy by the high standard of maintenance of the churchyard.
The inscriptions are set out in alphabetical order based on the first name that appears on the monument. Where second surnames occur, these are cross-referenced to the name under which the inscription is recorded. The numbers at the end of each inscription refer to the plan of the graveyard.
Some stones were particularly difficult to read and it is advisable that researchers check the inscription themselves where possible.
A brief history of St Patrick’s Cathedral and graveyard
St Patrick’s Cathedral located on Loman Street in Trim, is one of the oldest Christian settlements in Ireland. It may date back to the year 433 AD, when St Patrick arrived at the mouth of the Boyne and sent St. Loman ahead of him down the Boyne from Drogheda to set up a Christian settlement further upstream. St. Loman arrived in Trim in 433, and a local chieftain, Feilimid is reputed to have given him permission to build a church where the cathedral now stands.
In pre-Reformantion days the parish church of Trim stood on the site and it was, according to historical records, “an imposing building”. Today’s structure is also very old. The tower of the church was built in medieval times probably in 1449.
In 1803 the church was restored, and shortened in length, and it took on the form now familiar to Trim people. The tower is over 60 feet high and it was used as a watch tower during the emergency of 1798. At ground level, the tower is stone vaulted and serves as an entrance hall to the church. Inserted into the walls are old tombstones. During excavations around 1867 workers came across a gravestone face downwards with the inscription in old English type lettering. This was the tombstone of John Ward, Rector of Trim, and is dated 1509. Another stone in the hall was discovered in 1844 but unfortunately it was broken in three pieces. It was the monument of Walter Martin and dated from the 16th Century. Two notable tombs which are situated in the old Chancel are the tomb of John Gregg, Vicar of Trim who died January 21st 1629 and the monument of Walter Thombe 1458. The latter tomb has an unusual feature – nine cup like depressions arranged in a square. What these depressions depict is not known but it is suggested that they represent the Holy Trinity.
The church’s interior walls are stone-faced. The font which is really a piscina from one of the medieval altars of the church was moved from the old chancel into the new church around 1860. Various scenes are depicted – a fox making off with a goose, various monsters which are really the devil in disguise. The coats of arms on the shaft are Butler, Royal Arms of England and the Royal Arms impaled with those of the De Burgo and De Mortimer. The last coat of arms was used by the Duke of York, who must have been a considerable benefactor of the church in medieval times.
On the wall of the church is a clause from the will of Robert Briddock recorded on a wooden plaque. This merchant, who had property in Dublin and Roristown, Trim, left the interest of £500 sterling to provide clothes for the poor freemen of Trim and also left money to provide for apprentices. The church also benefited from the will as it received a loan from the funds when rebuilding was going on.
There are stained glass windows in the east and west walls of the church. The window over the alter depicts ‘The Last Supper’. At the other end of the church the stained glass depicts King David and the Good Shepherd.
The Bishop’s throne and chapter stalls, all of pine, were acquired from Elphin Catherdral, which was wrecked in a storm in 1957. They were re-dedicated for use at Trim.
ST PATRICK’S CATHEDRAL by E.A. Conwell 1873 (Taken from The Journal of the Royal Historical and Archaelogical Assciation 1873):
“The date of the foundation of St. Patrick’s Church, Trim, which next claims our notice, is a very early one. In the ecclesiastical annals of Ireland the spot on which the present parish church of Trim stands dates far back as the site of a very early Christian church. Tirechan, who lived in the seventh century, and wrote his life of St. Patrick from the mouth of his master, Bishop Ultan, of Ardbraccan, states, A.D. 433, that “Patrick came to Trim and built a church XXII years before the foundation of the church of Armagh.”__Ussher, “Prim.,”853.
Geraldus Cambrensis (“Top.Hib.,”2,45), says that in his time the Irish had no castles, and that they took refuge in their churches from the robbers, with whom the country abounded. The tower of the church is well fitted and seems, with its crenellated and battlemented belfry, to have been intended for a place of defence. It is a solid castle-like building, 75 feet in height, and has been divided into six storeys, two of which are vaulted. In 1798, the year of the Irish Rebellion, a sentinel was stationed on the top of this tower, for whose use the additional structure on its northwestern angle is said to have been erected. In 1449 Richard, Duke of York, afterwards King Richard III., whilst in Ireland as Lord Lieutenant, resided some time in Trim; and he is supposed to have built this tower about that period. From the outline of the great west window the body of the church would seem to be of the fourteenth century; and the square window still remaining in the south wall of the old chancel is evidently of the time of Edward II. The present church, standing from the west to east, with the ancient tower on its north-western extremity, occupies the site of what had formerly been the pre-Reformation parish church of Trim, which, from the evidences still remaining, was undoubtedly a building of a far more imposing character than its modern representative. The old chancel, the two side-walls abutted on the eastern side of the old tower, it must have measured 54 feet in breadth. The length of the old chancel cannot now be ascertained, but its breadth externally is 27 feet 6 inches, and the walls are 3 feet in thickness.
The external dimensions of the present church are 87 feet in length, and 33 feet in width. In the summer of 1867 the late Vicar, Rev. Charles J. Bayly, ably assisted by his curate, Rev. Alfred T. Harvey, organized a committee, consisting of the churchwardens and the principal parishioners, for the purpose of improving the church. These improvements, which subsequently cost upwards of £1400 consisted in removing the old porch and unsightly gallery, substituting open pews for the antiquated ones in previous use, the insertion of new foliated windows set in cut stone, the erection of a vestry, a compartment for a organ, and a new chancel, forming a addition of 18 feet to the present church.
87: Medieval tomb in ruined chancel
GREGG AND GRIFFITH – “In the south-eastern corner of the old chancel there is a raised tomb of grey Ardbraccan limestone, measuring 6 feet 2 inches long, 3 feet 1 inch wide, and 5 inches thick, consisting of four fragments, the remaining piece, containing part of the name in the inscription, being lost. Dean Butler had this tomb restored by bringing together the present fragments, which he found scattered in different places in the churchyard. As in some of the preceding instances, the inscription here runs in a band all round the stone. In this case a groove, 5 inches broad, was hollowed out, in which appears to have been laid a strip or sheet of brass, through which protruded from the solid stone the present raised letters, varying from 3 to 4 inches in height. It runs thus :- Here . lye . ye. Bodies . of . John . Gre[gg . Dea]n . of . Lismore . and . First . Vicar . of . Trym . Who . dyed . Jan . 21 . 1629 . and . William . Griffith . next . Vicar . of . Trym . who dyed.
In 1622 Gregg was Vicar of Rathmolyon, as well as Vicar of Trim. The inscription bears internal evidence that the monument was got up in the lifetime of, and very probably by, the second Vicar, wishing to be commemorated along with his predecessor. It will be seen, however, that there is no provision, or groove , on the stone for the continuation of the strip of brass, and the date of Griffith’s death has never been added. He probably died during the troubles that succeeded 1641.” E.A. Conwell. 1873.
88: Tomb-slab in ruined chancel
THOUMBE – “In the south-western corner of the old chancel there is a tomb-slab raised about a foot from the ground, of grey Ardbraccan limestone, measuring 6 feet 11 inches in length , 3 feet 7 inches broad, and 6 inches thick. The inscription is incised round the margin of the stone; and it is very probable that the letters, which vary from 3 to 4 inches in height, were originally inlaid brass.
The style of the lettering is characteristic of the period to which the tomb belongs, and the inscriptions reads as follows :–Hic : jacet : [w]alterus : Thoumbe : de : Trym : qi : obit : XVIII : die : Junii : A : D : M : CCCC : LVIII. The initial letter [W] OF THE Christian-name is rubbed away ; and it is not to be forgotten that the original name of Trim (Ath-Truim) contained a U as well as an I. It will be observed that the letters on the first three side of the inscription are rather widely set apart, which gives the concluding line a more crowded appearance. We may fairly conclude that this was the tomb of an ecclesiastic as thirty-four years before the date on this stone, viz., in 1424, we find that–.
‘Walter Thoumbe, Clerk had the custody of all messuages, lands, &c., in Wodton, near Rathcarran, which were in the King’s hands, by reason of the death of Edmond, Earl of March, and the minority of his heir, Richard, Duke of York. Thoumbe was to pay 10s. a year rent.
“In the same year, with Richard Sidegreve and Christopher Barnewell, he had a commission to inquire concerning wards, marriages, reliefs, escheats, and other royal profits, in the countries of Dublin, Louth, and Drogheda; and concerning forfeitures, and the goods of felons, and concerning intruders into the possession of the King of his predecessors, and concerning those who broke the Statutes of Kilkenny, or other Statutes, whether made in England or in Ireland; and concerning mortmain, or alienations without license. “—Rot. Can. Pat. 3 Hen. VI.
About the centre of the lower extremity of the slab will be observed nine circular cup-like depressions, which are ground into stone, and are arranged in the form of a square. They are apparently coeval with the lettering of the inscription; but of their use or meaning we are unable to afford any explanation, unless, indeed, they may be supposed to be emblematic of the Trinity, always counting three, no matter in what direction they may be reckoned.”
E.A. Conwell. 1873.
90A: SLAB (Located in the wall of old chancel between 90 and 91. Very badly weathered. Now unreadable)
“Into the interior of the north wall of the old chancel and immediately over the space between the sites in which the two last stones were dug up, Dean Butler, some years ago, inserted a very curious tomb-slab, of which the accompanying engraving is an accurate representation. It is broken across, near the centre, and measures 6 feet 10 inches in length, 2 feet 8 inches in breadth at top, and is 2 inches narrower at the bottom. From an examination of the material, it appears to be an artificially formed slab, consisting chiefly of concrete of lime, of a brown colour, thickly interspersed with wavy lines of some blue substance; and, when polished, of which in parts in the upper left-hand corner it still affords evidences, it must have presented a very beautiful speckled and mottled appearance. In the portion of the stone is to be seen a small speck of metal exhibiting that shade of green peculiar to the so-called peacock ore of copper, from which we infer that the inscription may have been originally inlaid with that metal. Around the margin ran two parallel grooves, each half an inch wide, which were evidently inlaid. Between these grooves, forming a fillet of about three inches wide, ran the inscriptions, now in sunk letters; but which, no doubt, were originally filled with metal, and in Lombardic characters of the twelfth or thirteenth century.
At the top of the slab will be observed a hollow representing an ecclesiastical figure, over which is another depression in the form of a canopy with crockets and pinnacles, both evidently, when the monument was erected, filled with some metallic substances. Of the name of the ecclesiastic, which is hopelessly lost, there are faint traces of such letters as WID, preceded by a cross, and the space for about six other letters, after which follow__Hic : Rector : et : Arc [hilevites] hic : jacet : Ira : Dei : pacificetur : [ei]. In Dean Butler’s time the words “Archilevites” and “ei” appear to have been complete and legible; and, of the former, he says that he “can give no other meaning than that of Archdeacon to the word Archilevites.”__(See Du Cange’s “Latin Dictionary,” ARCHILEVITA ).” E.A. Conwell. 1873.
92: Medieval slab in ruined Chancel
ASHE – “In the north-eastern corner of the old chancel, level with the surrounding green sward, is a flat stone, measuring 6 feet long, 3 feet 3 ½ inches wide and 5 inches thick, and covering a vault beneath. The stone is from the quarry of Ardbraccan, about eight miles distant, and is apparently of about the date 1657. It has been broken into pieces, as will be seen from the accompanying engraving all of which have been placed in juxtaposition, with the exception of that forming the left-hand lower corner of the slab, with which fragment is lost the commencement of the last three lines of the epitaph, which we have here ventured, on supposition, to restore in brackets. The upper portion of the stone is devoted to armorial bearings. On a shield-a chief ermine, three pheons, impaling two chevronels for Ashe; with two crests – a griffin’s head on a coronet, and a squirrel for Ashe. On the lower part of the stone, in raised letters about 2 inches high, was cut the inscriptions, which we propose to restore as follows :–
Love and age have joynd in one
To lay the [ese] two under this stone
Sir Tho [mas] Ash his Lady Elizabeth
[Unite Their] ashes in this house of death
[And n]ow both having run their glasses
[They hop]e to be reviv’d from ashes.
The author, whoever he may have been, of these doggerel lines, appears to have had no higher object than to make wordy capital out of the names of Elizabeth and Ashe.
We learn from Patent V., Treasurer’s Office, that in 1617—
“James I. granted to Sir Thomas Ashe, of Trim, the rectories, churches, and chapels, of the Blessed Virgin Mary of Trim, and Kildalkey; and two parts of all the tithes and altarages of the town, rectory, or chapel of Clonard, parcel of the possessions of the late abbey or monastery of the Blessed Virgin in Trim.”
We learn from an Inquisition taken at Navan, 28th August, 1633, that—
“Henry VIII., by letters patent, dated 19th July, 34th year of his reign, granted for ever to Sir Anthony St. Leger, the site, circuit, and precincts of the monastery of St. Francis, called the ‘Observant, or Grey Friars of Trim,’ containing six meassuages, with their gardens; and these were afterwards conveyed to Sir Thomas Ashe, of Trim, who made them over, with the exception of the house called ‘the Shore House,’ and the town House in Trim to Francis (Aungier?), Baron Longford.”
Sir Thomas Ashe was returned as Member of Parliament for the borough of Trim in 1613; but we have been unable to ascertain the date of his death. The family of Ashe held property in different parts of the county, as will be seen from inspection of the Meath Inquisitions. One branch of the family, from the neighbourhood of Oldbridge, migrated immediately after the battle of the Boyne to the North, and settling in the vicinity of Magherafelt, in the County of Londonderry, soon became intermarried with the principal families in that locality.” E.A. Conwell. 1873.
180: In Porch of Church
WARDE – “In digging the foundation for the new chancel, which extended into the old chancel of the original St. Patrick’s Church, at the depth of about 5 feet below the present surface level of the grave-yard, a tomb slab, measuring 6 feet 2 inches long, 2 feet 7 inches broad, and 5 inches thick of dark limestone, was found, with its lettered side turned downwards, which prone condition of the stone may, in some degree, account for the beautiful condition of the lettering, which varies from four to five inches in height, being almost as sharp and perfect as on the day the inscription was cut. This inscription, as will be seen from the accompanying engraving from a rubbing, runs in a scroll round the margin of the stone, in sunk letters, which have all the appearance of having been originally filled with brass. In addition to having some of the words contracted, it will be observed that a portion of one letter is frequently taken as constituting a portion of the following one; and this, together with the fact of the characters being in old German of Gothic, rendered their reading difficult to be deciphered by an unpractised eye. The inscriptions is of a period only a few years later than the introduction of printing into England by Caxton, in 1471; and the lettering is a beautiful specimen of the typography—our Old English, or Black Letter, uniformly Gothic—which prevailed from 1457, when printing was invented, until 1465. It reads thus:– Hic jacet Johannes Warde, Decretorum Doctor, quondam hujus ecclesice Rector, qui obit XX V1 DIE Februarii An Di M D V1111” E.A. Conwell. 1873.

182: In Porch of Church
MARTIN – “Recently he has inserted into the interior of the north wall of the new vestry a curious tomb-slab, measuring 6 feet long, 2 feet 4 inches wide, and 4 inches thick; and which, on entering upon his vicariate, he found in his coach-house broken into three pieces. It was dug up in the year 1844, in sinking a grave in the old chancel within two or three yards of where the Warde slab was found; and, for preservation, it was inserted by Dean Butler into the old porch, in taking away which, in 1868, it was broken, and left in the coach-house for safety. Mr. Bayly having died soon afterwards, nothing more was done about it, until it had become considerably defaced. We here present an engraving of it from a rubbing we took in July, 1871. The inscription, in raised letters, with a comma after each word, reads: Hic, jacet, Walterus, Martinus, quondam, de, Trym, Burgensis, cum, parentibus, avis, et, proavis, suis, et, etiam, Jeneta, Delapatrick uxor, ejus, qui, obiit, mense, junii, anno, salutis, 1541. Hic,quoque, jacet, Nicholaus, Martinus, filius, dicti, Walteri, et, Jenete, cum, uxore, sua,Katherina Aspoll, qui, obiit, xxv., die,Junii, anno, domini, 1590, cujus, filius, walterus, Martinus, et, Jeneta, Gerry, ejus, uxor, hoc monumentum, fieri, fe[cerunt, &c.]. By the breaking across of the stone at this point of the inscription the last line is lost, which probably gave the date of the erection of the monument. Commencing on the lower extremity of the cross, in raised letters, is the following curious legend, each word being separated from the next by a single point:– Hoc . est . signum . humbance. redemptions . et . insigne . Christianum . baptismate . datum . quo. mors. Christi . recolitur . et . diabolus . fugatur. Then follows a form of rose, which is frequently met with on monuments; but the most remarkable feature in this part of the inscription is the Greco-Latin form of the words Christianum and Christi being used down to this period . There was also a rasied inscription on the shaft of the cross, which is now illegible; and which may have only been, as was not unusual, the name of the sculptor.
On the right of the cross there have been two lines cut in sunk characters, thus indicating a different and later date for this part of the inscription. The first line, we fear, is hopelessly lost; but, if it could be read as an hexameter, the following line, which is easily restored (astra . colunt . animce . corpor[a . terr]a. tenet) being a pentameter, the two lines taken together would make Latin Elegiac verse. From the friable nature of the surface, which scales off almost with the slightest touch from the hard dark limestone slab beneath, we infer that the inscription, cross, &c., were originally formed by spreading a dark stone paste along the surface of the slab, on which a perforated brass plate, containing the inscription, &c., was pressed down, causing letters, &c., to exude through it; and, from having long lain buried, the metallic portion of the inscription became gradually eaten away and lost.
With the exceptions of the names of Martin and Garry, the descendants of the other names, Delapatrick and Aspoll, have long since disappeared from Trim and its neighbourhood. The cross here figured is evidently intended to be emblematic of the armorial bearings of the Martins, whose crest was a star, here represented by the Blending of the St. Andrew’s with the Roman cross. Sir Bernard Burke, Ulster King-of-Arms, shows that the Martins of Galway descend from one of the officers who accompanied De Brugh in the first invasion of Ireland, temp. Henry II. That he was returned Crusader is manifest from the arms, which are stated (“Book of Pedigrees,” Vol. X.) to have been granted to Oliver Martin by King Richard I. in the Holy Land.
ARMS: AZ. a Calvary cross on five degrees arg. between the sun in splendour on the dexter limb, and the moon in crescent on the sinister or.
CREST: An etoile wavy of six points
MOTTO: Sic itur ad astra.”
