The Goulden Family |
"Being from the Church of Ireland community, their numbers were quite small. The C of I church was closed although the graveyard contains the remains of my grandparents and my great grandmother (Mary Weekes)
Goulden is quite an unusual name in Ireland but I was surprised to uncover many of that name in Britain and America. Most of my family on the Goulden side originated in Tobercurry, Co Sligo. Looking at the 1911 census I counted at least 16 Gouldens in the Tobercurry area. Most of them were farmers. While these were Church of Ireland members there were a good many Gouldens in the Co Cork area who were Roman Catholic at that time.Henry Richard Goulden's son, James, wrote about the history of the RIC.
"The papers were given to Trinity with a proviso that they be held unpublished for 30 years in order to protect some of the contributors because retribution by the IRA was a real possibility. Of course, the 30 year stipulation has long since expired. It shows the fears and distrust that abounded back in the 1960's and has only recently abated since peace has finally settled in Northern Ireland.
