Patrickson monument in St. Mary’s Church, Dunmanway.  There was a reference to that stone in the minute book. It is the only piece of the old St. Mary’s church, built around 100 years previously to make it into the new church in 1821.  Patrickson put up quite a lot of money towards the building of the first one.

The Patricksons were one of a number  of families such as the Fenwicks Little Island, Inis Beg Skibbereen, Phairs, Whites (Later Lord Bantry), Davies of Macroom, Blairs (later Blair’s Cove) active in the Land Market late 17th and early 18th century acquiring large tracts of West Cork from the Hollow Blade Company.

There is a large extended family Catholic and Protestant in Ireland, UK and Australia. The Cleary branch is in Australia.
