William NEW was born circa 1772 in Dunganstown Civil Parish, Co Wicklow, Ireland, and died 27 Sep 1844 in Castletimon, Co Wicklow, Ireland. He married (1) Unknown. He married (2) Ellen BYRNE. She was born 1795 in Co Wicklow, Ireland, and died 1825. He married (3) Sarah CUFF. She was born 1793, and died circa 1827. He married (4) Anne BYRNE 15 Feb 1829 in Avoca, Co Wicklow, Ireland.

William was a farmer when he died in 1844 in Castletimon. He farmed approximately 116 acres of quality pasture land in Castletimon. When he died in 1844 his wife Anne ran the farm. I don't know who ran the farm when she died in 1860. This land was leased from a wealthy landlord as was usually the case at this time. Roman Catholics lost their land from the 1640's onwards and it was only in the later part of the 19th century after land reform acts that they started to acquire freeholds again. Nearby the New farm was another farm of 168 acres in Dunganstown leased by Denis Finn, born 1796 near Arklow. Joseph New married his daughter Mary Finn in Barndarrig Chapel (near Castletimon) in 1867. Mary New was registrar of Arklow Cemetery for more than 30 years until she died in 1922. She was interred in Arklow cemetery and given a fine plot inside the entrance with a large gravestone sculpted by her son Joseph. - Bob Hickson

Joseph NEW was born 28 Sep 1873 (photo) in Castletimon, Arklow, Co Wicklow, Ireland, and died 21 Dec 1944 in Arklow, Co Wicklow, Ireland.

He was a sculptor/stonemason. His brothers Dennis, Daniel and William were also sculptor/stonemasons, as was Thomas New a son of Dennis. I can only assume that their skills were passed down by great grandfather Joseph, born 1829, in Castletimon, who was also a sculptor. He erected the family headstone in Kilcummin. Interestingly Joseph gave his occupation as 'grocer' on the birth certificates of two of his children. - Bob Hickson
