The first census of Ireland in 1659 did not show any records with relevant surnames in the Kildare or Wicklow counties.

The same applies to the Heath Money Records of the late 1600s and the Religious Census of 1766.

However, derivations of the name appear in the Ballymore Eustace parish records in the 1780s and the Dunlavin parish in 1815. Both these dates reflect when these parish records first started. These parishes bordered each other and were around Hollywood in Wicklow, a town just south of the bigger town of Ballymore Eustace in Kildare and north of Dunlavin in Wicklow.

In the parish records there are several families in the Ballymore Eustace parish and a smaller number in the Dunlavin parish.

The Public Record Office records of wills showed an Owen Heade from Snugborough (by Donard) who died intestate in 1769. (Owen is Eoghan in Irish or Eugenius in latin)

By the 1830s there were three families in the Skelp, Newtown area of Ballymore Eustace and three in the Blackhill, Friarhill, Donard area of Dunlavin.  As can be seen from the map below, while these villages were in different parishes they were actually very close together on the borders of these two parishes.

This presence in the early records suggest that they may have been in the area in the early 1700s, and perhaps earlier although in numbers that did not warrant a mention in the census or Heath Money records.

Descendants in Dublin also seem to have originated from this area and DNA tests have supported this assumption.

I have developed three trees around descendants from this area:

  • Tree # 3. This is the tree that shows the early presence in this area and the descendants that can be traced from these families.
  • Tree # 16. This covers the following families that are assumed to originate from this area but cannot, in all cases, be proven from these records:
    • Christopher b in circa 1780. He was in Dublin in the early 1800s and married Margaret Byrne in 1806. They had a family in the early 1800s in Dublin.
    • William b circa 1815. He married Catherine Vins in Dunlavin parish in 1838 and they had a family in Dublin in the 1840s.
    • James b circa 1818. He married Bridget Flanagan and had a family in Dublin in the 1840s
    • Patrick b circa 1824. He married Ester Riley and had a family firstly in Ballymore Eustace in the 1840s/1850s and then in Dublin.
    • Michael b circa 1830. He married Margaret or Mary Maher and they had a family in Dublin in the 1850s.

These families have been grouped as they lived in similar areas of Dublin at a similar time period.

  • Tree # 18. This covers:
    • James Hayde and Patrick Hayde who were born in the early 1800s, had similar occupations and had families in Dublin the 1840s.

These have been grouped separately from Tree # 16 as they are clearly related and were in the same area of Dublin at the same time period and are also assumed to originate from the Kildare/Wicklow area.

The DNA of descendants from Trees # 3 and 18 are similar to that of Hayde families from Ballinure, Tipperary. There is therefore a proven link to Tipperary but the specific details are unknown.

The DNA for a descendant from Tree # 16, while different to those of Trees # and 18 is similar to the DNA from a Hayde family from Fethard, Tipperary.

The areas referred to in Tree # 3 are all around Dunlavin, Hollywood and Ballymore Eustace. These can be seen around Hollywood above.

These families and their descendants are:

Ballymore Eustace Parish

  • John ?. Mar Mary Nail. In Skelp in 1833 as Hayde. John D 1842

    • Anne Hayd b 1829
    • James b 1830
    • John Heade b 1834. Mar Sarah Murphy Dunlavin 1852. John was a shoemaker. Crehelp in 1854
      • John Hoyd b 1855, Crehelp
      • Thomas Hayde b 1856. Shoemaker. Single in 1911.
      • Nicholas Heade b 1857
      • Patrick Hayde b 1858. Single in 1911
      • Henry Haide b 1859
      • John Hayde b 1860. Single in 1911

    • Patrick Heade b 1839

At the time of the Tithes in 1833, Michael and John Hayde were jointly farming 260 acres with John Murphy, Peter Farrell, Luke Butler, Pat Mowlem and James Kelly.

By the time of the Griffiths in 1854 the same 260 acres were being farmed by Michael and his brother William and John Murphy, Luke Butler, James Hegarty, Richard Kelly and Matthew Farrell. The land was owned by the Rev Lord J Beresford. The Beresford family arrived in Ireland with the armies of James 1 in the early 1600s and were granted large tracks of land (mainly around Waterford) by the king.

Descendants continued to farm this land into the 1900s. Michael who died in 1929 appears to be the last Hayde on this land.

John, who was in Crehelp in 1854, was on 4 acres owned by Richard Kelly. He died in 1883 and his son Thomas took over the property until he died in 1946. There is no sign of any descendants after this date and as the brothers were single (and in their 50s at the time of the 1911 census) it can be assumed that this branch of the family died out.

2) Richard and Hanna. In Newtown in 1833 as Heade

  • Bridget Heade b 1783
  • Anna Julia Head b 1785, Newtown
  • Margaret Head b 1787, Hollywood
  • Jacobus (James) Headde b 1790, Newtown. James probably died as Hade at Dragoonhill in 1866
  • Thomas Head b 1792, Newtown. In Newtown in 1854 as Hayde
    • No sign of descendants
  • Anna Head b 1795, Newtown

At the time of the Tithes Richard farmed 44 acres and by 1854 Thomas was farming 46 acres.  The land was also owned by the Rev Lord J Beresford. Thomas disappeared from the valuation records in the 1860s.

3) Eugene (Owen) and Rosa.

  • Jacobus (James) Head b 1786, Rathattin (a village close to Scalp) – known as Rabattin in the Tithes.
  • Patrick Head b 1789, Rathattin

There was no sign of this family in the 1830s Tithe or subsequent records.

Dunlavin Parish

4) Henry and Hannah/Judith.

  • Anne Hede b 1816, Milltown
  • William Heade b 1817, Blackhill
  • Michael Heade b 1821, Dunlavin

There was no sign of this family in the 1830s Tithe records.

A Nicholas Hade married Mary Dowling in this parish in 1837.  In Mullycagh Lower in 1854 as Hade. Their children were:

  • Rose Heade b 1840, Dunlavin
  • Jane Heade b 1842
  • Henry Heade b 1845
  • Thomas Hade b 1848
  • Mary Hade b 1851
  • Brigida Hayde b 1865, Mullcagh

I suspect Nicholas is another son of Henry and Hannah born circa 1817 as the dates and location fit and one of his sons’ was named Henry, which was an unusual family name at the time.

A Patrick Heade from Mullcagh married Catherine Cuff/Cook in Newbridge parish in 1839. He is probably another son of Henry and Hannah given the reference to Mullcagh. In Dowdestown Great as Hayde in 1851. Their children were:

  • James Hade b 1840
  • Patt Hade b 1842
  • Mary Hade b 1845
  • Ester Hade b 1847
  • John Hade b 1849
  • Margaret Hade b 1852
  • Catherine Hade b 1854, Dowdestown
  • Peter Hade b 1857, Dowdestown. Mar Mary Kinsella 1901

5) Patrick (a tailor) and Eleanor Keoghe. In Fryarhill in 1825 as Heade

  • Rose Heade b 1817
  • Richard Heade b 1820
  • Patrick Heade b 1822. Mar Mary Lynch Ballymore Eustace parish in 1840. He was a mason in 1881. In Commons (by Dowdestown) as Hayde in 1851. Their children were:
    • Ellen Hade b 1841

    • Daughter b 1869
  • Sarah Heade b circa 1840
  • Thomas Heade b circa 1840. Mar Maria Cahill in Roundwood, Rathdrum 1862. Parents were from Crehelp. Thomas was a shoemaker. D 1911
    • Patrick Haid/Hayde b 1863. Mar Ellen. Emigrated to USA
    • Eleanor Haid 1864

    • Anne Hade b 1880
    • Elizabeth Hade b 1882

At the time of the Tithes, Patrick was on a small 1 acre plot of land. It’s no surprise his descendants moved elsewhere.

6) James and Rose from Donard.

  • Denis Heade b 1821, Donard. In Donard 1833 and 1834. Donard is just south of Blackhill/Fryarhill. Mar Anne Hayden. Ann probably owned dairy in Mary St, Rathmines 1851-72.

Dublin Residents in 1664

In the 1800s a list was made of residents from the Hearth Money Rolls, which later perished in the PRO fire.

The only slightly relevant entry (apart from Haydens) was Nicholas Hide, Lucan Towne (Townland), Lucan Parish, 2 hearths. There is however no record of any relevant descendants in the research undertaken in the 1800s onwards.

As described in the Irish Research Page, I have searched all the parish records together with directories, telephone books etc and constructed the trees described below. All the arrivals in the 1800s came from Kildare/Wicklow apart from a few from Tipperary and Carlow later in the century. This web page just focuses on the early arrivals. They can be summarised as:

  • Those that can be clearly traced to Kildare/Wicklow (Tree # 3)
  • Those that probably relate to Kildare/Wicklow and are probably related to Tree # 3 and settled in the south side of Dublin (Tree # 16)
  • Pat and James Hayde who were in Dublin in 1826, were probably from Kildare/Wicklow and who settled on the north side of Dublin (Tree # 18)
  • A family at Rathmines that is probably from Kildare/Wicklow
  • A family at Rathfarnham and Willbrook


Tree # 3

This tree, as it relates to Dublin, reflects the ancestors who clearly originated in Kildare/Wicklow and can be linked together from the various records.

The other families in Dublin may also originate in Kildare/Wicklow but have their own tree references of Tree # 16 and # 18 as the connections are not proven.

The families in Dublin that are part of Tree # 3 are:

Patrick b 1842 mar Bridget Lynch Dunlavin, 1869

  • Mary Hayde b 1871, Dublin
  • Anne Hayde b 1873
  • Bridget Hayde b 1874

  • William Hayde b 1822.


Tree # 16

In the early 1800s, there were several families in the Dublin south parish records who all appeared to have some connection because of where there were living, some common names or other related factors. These families probably originated in the Kildare/Wicklow area and are probably related to the families in Tree # 3. These were:

Christopher (b 1768) who married Margaret Byrne in St Paul’s parish in 1806.

  • Bridget Heade b 1807
  • Matthew Hade b 1818. Mar Mary Murphy in 1844 in Australia
    • Margaret Hade b 1841, Australia
    • Christopher Hade b 1845. Mar Margaret Hughes 1872 and Elizabeth Connor later in life
    • Thomas Hade b 1847. D 1850
    • John Hade b 1851. Mar Mary Bergin
    • William Cornelius Hade b 1856. Mar Annie Larner
  • Margaret Hade b 1822

Christopher was in the North Dublin workhouse in 1840 and died there in 1844.

Matthew was convicted of being a pick pocket in Dublin in 1832 and was sentenced to 7 years in Australia.  He married there and subsequently settled in Australia  There are many Hade descendants in NSW, Australia that can be traced back to Matthew.

The DNA of a descendant shows {add}

Christopher is a very unusual name.  It only appears in the family in a small number of cases, as does Matthew.  Any users of these names therefore must have some connection. The Christopher b 1862 to Matthew and Catherine must show some linkage between the families.

Henry born circa 1795. He was in the 1851 Dublin census as well as the William O’Brien records of 1848. He was probably baptised as an adult in Rathmines in 1852.

Henry could have had a family in Dunlavin in the early 1800s. Henry does not feature very often in the family records and its use signifies a probably connection.

John Hade b circa 1810 mar Elizabeth Baxter 1837

Descendants are in Dublin as Heade.

The tree groups some of these people together but in reality the precise connections prior to the 1800s are a bit of a guess.  The tree is at

Tree # 18

In 1826 there was a major bank crisis in England which resulted in many textile factories in Dublin becoming uneconomic.  Many of these factories closed and the staff were unemployed.  Many of the newly unemployed men were used to repair roads in various parts of Dublin during the summer of 1826. James Hayde (a wool dyer with a family of 5) and Pat Hayde (a spinner with a family of 3) were in these records of labourers.

James was living at 5 Newmarket and Pat at Tenters (an area close to Newmarket). These were areas in Dublin City just south of the river. James probably joined the British army (46th Foot) and was stationed in Canada in 1822. He was born 1799 in St Michans parish and was a tailor. {check for his army records}.

There are various records in the St Catherines (Meath Street), St Michaels (Lower Exchange Street) and St Andrews (Westland Row) Catholic parishes in the late 1700s and early 1800s that could  relate to these families. However the linkages are not clear.

What is clear is that two descendants married and had families at St Michans and St Catherines parishes on the northside of the river in the 1850s. These were:

Pat, a painter, who married Ann Loran in 1848

  • James Haid b 1850. Mar Elizabeth Walsh in 1861. James was a painter. He died 1887

Both these families lived in the same areas.  They were in Walshes Row in the 1850s, Penders Court and Dorset St in the 1860s then Murphy’s Cottages and Summerhill in the 1890s.

A descendant has undertaken a DNA test and the results show that his DNA is very similar to these from Tipperary (Trees # 1, 9, and 10) and also from Tree # 3 which has Kildare/Wicklow origins.

The assumption therefore is that these families moved from Kildare/Wicklow to Dublin in the late 1700s.

As outlined in the Kildare/Wicklow posts page, a Denis Hayde, who was born in Roundwood County Wicklow in 1866, came to Liverpool with sisters Mary, Rosanna and Julie in the 1880s. His older brother Patrick emigrated to America in 1884 and settled in Queens, New York.

Denis met and married Mary Heim (born in Germany) in 1915 while Mary, Rosanna and Julie went to America in the 1890s.

Denis is the son of Thomas and Mary Cahill.  Thomas was a shoemaker.  He was a son of Patrick and Mary Keogh from Crehelp who lived in the Dunlavin area of Kildare/Wicklow.

Denis and Mary had 4 sons. One had 9 children and emigrated to Dunedin, New Zealand, while the other 3 had 25 children between them. Most of these children, and their descendants, are still in the Liverpool area, although some have moved south or emigrated to America.

This Tree is genetically linked to Trees # 1, 9, 10 and 15. This proves a link to Tipperary. Somehow the family migrated north from Tipperary to Wicklow/Kildare.
