REV. WILLIAM TEW’S CHARITY. 

Report of Ballysax School, agreeable to the Will of the late Rev. William Tew. 

The Rev. J. A. Bermingham, rector and vicar of Ballysax parish, begs leave to report to the 
Lord Bishop of Kildare, at his annual visitation held on the 21st September 1841, in the cathedral 
church of Kildare, that there are at present on the roll of Ballysax School 71 children, 40 boys and 
31 girls; that there are well-qualified persons acting as master and mistress ofthis school (namely, 
John Ryan and wife), the former of whom is clerk of the parish church; that the interest of 200 Z. 
has been regularly paid to the master and mistress of said school on each 8th day of January and 
10 th July in every year; that in consequence of there being no attendance of children for some 
years, and there being no Protestant children resident in the parish requiring the gratuitous educa- 
tion of a parish school, it has been placed under the superintendence and patronage of the Board 
of National Education, and although but two months opened under this system, it is now attended 
by the largest number of children already mentioned.

21 September 1841. Rector and Vicar of Ballysax.

Sir, 33, Harcourt-street, 30 January 1843. 

I herewith send you the lease of the land granted by the proprietors of the Ballvsax estate, 
for the erection of a school-house thereon ; you will please to direct the especial attention of the 
Board of Charitable Bequests to the clause in the second page, marked -f , which directs the 
instruction to be given by the master to be “ according to such plan of education, and under and 
subject to such regulations as shall from time to time be in writing ordered by the minister and his 
successor.” I should humbly hope that the Board will agree with me in considering that this 
clause places the system of education to be pursued in Ballysax School under my control, an d 
that the will of the late Rev. William Tew puts the sole management of the pecuniary concerns 
of said school in me also. 

I am, &c. 

The Secretary of the (signed) J. A. Bermingkam, 

Board of Charitable Bequests, Rector of Ballysax. 

&c. See. Sc c. 

P.S. I beg to repeat my former application to the Board to pay, through you, Mr. Tew’s 
bequest to the Protestant master and mistress of the school as I have always done, not wishing (as 
I have remarked in my former letter) to have any dispute or controversy with my venerable and 
respected diocesan on the subject. 


Sir, Dublin Castle, 7 April 1843. 

I had the honour of laying before the Commissioners of Charitable Donations and Bequests the 
lease of the land granted by the proprietor of the Ballysax estate for the erection of a school-house 
thereon, together with your letter by which the lease was accompanied, and I have been ordered to 
communicate to you that it is the opinion of the Commissioners that the trusts of the will of the 
Rev. William Tew have not been properly fulfilled, inasmuch as the school has not been conducted 
as a Protestant parochial school, and the express condition imposed by the testator, that the 
minister shall at every annual visitation of the Lord Bishop of Kildare present a report in writing 
of the state of the said parochial school, has not been complied with. And in conclusion, I am to 
intimate to you, that so long as this state of things remains the same, the interest on the fund pro- 
duced by Mr. Tew*s bequest will not be paid. 

X have, &c.

lH,VB to ackn° T ledge the _reee lp t of j-rnr letter of the 7th instant, and ik replk ben- most 
respectfully to object to the .decision of the Board of Charitable Bequests upon the greunds'which 
are set forth as a Justification for withdrawing the Rev. William Tew’s igacy from Ballysax 
parocmal school, or pending its payment so long as the present state of things remains. To the 
hrst objection, namely, that the school has not been conducted as a Protestant parochial school » 
I bre to reply- that there, s no clause in Mr. Terr’s mil which either positively or inferentiaily 
restricts the todti of the school to the Protestant poor exclusively, tile only restriction specified 
m tl.e will bang hat the master and mistress shall be Protestants, which condition has alwaVs been 
most inviolably observed by me and my predecessors. With respect to the next objections stated 
“ y° M Ielter ’ finely, that the expre| condition imposed by tile testator, that the minister shall 
at ereiy annual visitation of the lord Bishop of Kildare present a report in writing of the state 
of sa,d parochial school, has not been complied with,” I beg to reply that for the last three 
Tears this condition has been scrupulously and regularly complied with by me. During the two 
first years of my incumbency, X was not aware of this condition. In conclusion, I must See leave, 
with feelings of the most unqualified respect, to state that I cannot receive the decision of the 
Board as final or mandatory as it would have the effect of prohibiting me from adopting 
such system of education os I consider best suited to the parochial poor 0? all denominations'; 
said system of education, as well as the pecuniary affairs of the school, being left to my sole 
management. With the former I must contend that the Board of Charitablo BeqSesfe can hive no 
possible connexion, while with respect to the latter they stand in the relation of inspectors, to take 
care that the money is paid to the Protestant master and mistress, which, together with all other 
conditions of the wilt and the covenant of the lease (leaving the system of education to or exclu- 
sive control), have been regularly complied with by me. 

I remain, Sec.

The period for the payment of the half-year’s interest upon Mr. Tew’s legacy to ‘ Ballysax 
Parochial School will arrive on Monday next, the 10th instant; for the last three rears every 
stipulation required by Mr. Tew’s will, and every covenant contained in the lease demising the 
property of the school, have been most scrupulously complied with by me. The “ state of t Innas” 
alluded to in your letter conveying the resolution of the Board, to suspend the payment, has not 
continued, nor does not exist. I wish, therefore, to be informed whether it is the intention of the 
Board to persist in their resolution of withholding the legacy from the Protestant master and mis-

I shall feel obliged by your early reply.

aion, according to seniority of age and priority of birth, as is set forth in my marriage articles, 
shall appoint proper and correct clergymen to fill the situation of parish priest of Castlerea, 
otherwise Kilkewin, and a fit and proper clergyman to fill the situation of parish priest of 
Ballintobber, who shall officiate therein as parish priest of Ballintobber, without the opposition of 
the bishop or archbishop for the time being in the diocese of Elphin, that then, and in such 
case, 15 1. annually should be paid to the priest of each of those parishes, and for the repairs of 
the chapels thereof, as herein already mentioned ; but should this right of presenting a Roman- 
catholic incumbent to the parish of Castlerea be disputed by the bishop or archbishop for the 
time being of the diocese of Elphin, my will is, and the intention of my said brother was, 
that then, and from thenceforth, so much of said annuity as regards the priest and parish chapel 
of Castlerea, shall become the property of my son Mr. Denis O’Conor, or the property of his 
eldest male issue ; should the said Denis O’Conor be without male issue lawfully begotten, then 
to become the property of my son Mr. Edward O’Conor, and after his death, the property of his 
eldest male issue lawfully begotten, and so in succession : as the estate of Balangare is limited 
by the marriage settlement of my said son Denis, it being our intention and wish that this right 
of presentation shall rest with the eldest son of the family of O’Conor Don, in succession 
according to seniority of age and priority of birth, should the right of presentation as aforesaid 
to the parish of Ballintobber be disputed, the same rule as set down herein regarding the 
annuity for the parish priest and chapel thereof, are to be observed and followed precisely as that 
set down here for the priest and parish of Castlerea ; these sums I will to be disposed of in this 
way for the purpose of leaving it in the power of my son Denis, or his eldest heirs male, or of 
my son Edward, or his heirs male, as above set forth, to pay the above annuities as circum- 
stances may occur or direct, but to convert to his or their own use during the time they are 
respectively in the possession of the same, any sum or sums accruing out of the before-mentioned 
annuities during any period that the right of presentation, so often alluded to, shall be disputed. 
Lest this mentioned stoppage of the payment of the annuities set down for the parishes of 
Castlerea and Ballintobber should be construed to extend to the annuity for the parish priest 
for the time being of Kilkerhey or Balangare, or the children thereof, I think it right here 
to state that there is no bar whatever to their payment as they shall become due.

Malone, to be deducted the following year. 

Susan T Yeehes, late of the City of Cork, Spinster, deceased : 

I have at this date 40/. Irish in the Bennetts’ hands; should I die before I draw the money, 

I desire it may be given in the following manner : 5 /. of it to the Rev. C. Leslie for the 
parish church school; 25/. of it to the Rev. C. Leslie, with an earnest request from me that he 
will urge the clergvmen of Paul’s parish to open a school in their parish for a small number 
of females, as many as their funds will admit of; and I have not the least doubt, were they 
active in goin" through the entire parish, to middling as welL as sick persons, and. begging for 
contributions Tor the purpose of a school, they could be able to mix, perhaps, sufficient to open 
a small boys’ as well as girls’ school; and by having them under the Association they would 
get assistance from that society. This has long been a darling wish of my heart, but know 
not how to set about it, and feared to give offence to the clergymen. I leave it entirely to the 
Rev. C. Leslie, to the clergymen of the parish, to have a school opened in whatever manner

' I leave and bequeath 3001. sterling, to be put to interest, and said interest to be paid 

equally and yearly to the schoolmaster raid schoolmistress in Crilly school-house, latelv built 
by me ; and I further direct that the master and mistress of said schools be appointed or 
approved of by the committee of the Established Church Home Mission, or at least one of 
its members, and said school to be under the direction and control of said committee. 
I leave and bequeath to the committee of the Established Church Home Mission for Ireland" 
50 1. sterling. I leave and bequeath to the Established Church Mission Society for Foreign 
Mission, the office of said society at 16, Upper Sackville-street, Dublin, the sum of 50 1. sterling

street, Dublin, 501. sterling. I leave and bequeath to the society established for instructing

bouring townlands as he finds leisure and opportunity; said clergyman or layman to be chosen
