Random Notes CXVII                        

Readers of Random Notes may recall that of some two weeks ago, dated October 5th, wherein a transcription of an eighteenth century list of the silver then held in the Church at Carrigaline was given. As a continuation of that list, so to speak, the following entries relating to the silver as recorded in 1909 may be found to be of some interest.

It is noteworthy, that as was the case in the mid eighteenth century, all four items of   silver listed are still extant, and in continual use.

The transcription that follows is taken from:

‘The Church Plate of the Diocese of Cork, Cloyne and Ross, by the Rev. Charles A. Webster, M.R.S.A.I., Rector of Marmullane. Cork, 1909.

‘A.   Flagon.   Tankard shape, S-shaped handle. Flat lid. Height, 9 3/4 inches. Weight, 43 oz. 2 dwts

Marks on lid inside (3): W.C. STERLING. (Wm. Clarke’s, Cork.)

Marks on drum (3): Ditto.

The maker’s initials are also on the handle.

B.   Cup. Height, Height, 9 ½ inches. Lip diameter, 3 ¾ inches.

Octagonal flanged foot. The stem, which is octagonal, is divided by a knop of eight large and sixteen small panels.

Inscription, in two lines, divided by a rose and fleur de lis: “The Gift of Margery Hodder, relict of William Hodder, of the Citty of Corke, Alderrman. To the use of the Parish of Carrigaline. Anno. Dom.  1670”

Marks (2) W.B. Ship between two Castles. (vide C.)

C.   Paten.   Diameter, 9 ½ inches.

Inscription on flange: “Panis quem frangimus none Corporis Christi Est? In usum Ecclesia de Carrigaline. Anno 1771.”

Marks (4)  W.B. Ship between two Castles. W.B. Ship between two Castles. The initials have a mullet beneath, and the town mark is noticeable in so much as the Cork arms are in one stamp, and not divided into three separate ones, as is usually the case.

The maker, Walter Burnett, was a Warded of the Cork Guild in 1694.

D.   Large Plate.   Diameter, 12 3/8 inches. Wide flange, on which are the Pomeroy Arms.

Inscription:  “Ar. Pomeroy, Deanus, Corcag; D. Qui Retribuam Domino.” Beneath is also inscribed, “Carrigaline Church Plate.”

Marks (4) ; Castle. R.G. Castle R.G.  Robert Goble is the maker.’
