The first mention of Radley/Leader connection was about 1600.
GEORGE CHINNERY, who came to Ireland from England, married ALICE, widow of JOHN LEADER. Their daughter
MARVELLA CHINNERY married THOMAS RADLEY of KNOCKRAUR. The name Marvella was favored by the Radleys and
handed down through generations.
HENRY LEADER married MARGARET RADLEY, 1689. She was daughter of THOMAS RADLEY and MARVELLA CHINNERY.
Their son RICHARD LEADER of OLDCASTLE married MARY RADLEY, daughter of RICHARD RADLEY, KNOCKRAUR.
JOHN LEADER of KEALE married 1690 JANE RADLEY, daughter of THOMAS RADLEY. Their son JOHN married 1734 lst,
cousin Marvella, daughter of HENRY LEADER of MT.LEADER. 2ndly in 1750 he married JANE, daughter of THOMAS
RADLEY and MARGARET PURDON, daughter of John Purdon of Dysert, CORK
In 1816 THOMAS RADLEY of "ROCKVILLE" married ALICIA LINDSEY, daughter of Henry Lindsey of Mishel/Peake. They
had 4 children, Margaret, Alicia, RICHARD HENRY, and Catherine.
JOHN LEADER of Keale MD. Married (second cousin) Margaret Radley in 1836. Nothing is known about 2 girls.
RICHARD HENRY RADLEY married Elizabeth Jane ARMSTRONG in 1853 and settled in Ballan, Victoria, Australia. As
money from his bankrupt estates dwindled, life became very hard for the family. In 1870 RICHARD HENRY died, along
with 3 of their children in an epidemic of diphtheria. Elizabeth was about to give birth to 11th child. Elizabeth and 4
remaining children left Ballan for parts unknown. 30 years later her son JULIUS FRANCES appeared in Brisbane QLD.
And married Maryanne O"REILLY (1900) the beginning of the present family.
Most of Radleys and Leaders were Church of Ireland, but there were some catholics. One such, was JOHN HALL LEADER,
born Millstreet, 1828 and emigrated to U.S.A. and lived in Galena, Illinois. until late1890s...
Some of the large elegant houses in the Parish of Aghabullogue were
AHAVRIN HOUSE of Captain T.E.CROOKE
KILBEREHERT of R.B.CROOKE Esq………. and “ ROCKVILLE” OF THOMAS RADLEY Esq.
PHILIP HAWES CROSS of SHANDY HALL
See Connors Family History for more information.
HENRY LINDSEY of PEAKE and MONALLIG married ALICE CROOKE daughter of WILLIAM CROOKE of DEREEN, and
sister of Anne Crooke RONAYNE. They had quite a few children, one of whom was my Great great grandmother ALICIA
CROOKE LINDSEY RADLEY, born 1796 approx.
Henry Lindsey's father was THOMAS LINDSEY of MACROOM later of MONALLIG born 1726 married MARY BROWNE OF
COOLCOWER CORK and had 5 other children besides Henry.
Henry Lindsey married 2ndly Elizabeth Davies but there was no issue. The name LINDSEY is also a " RIDING FAMILY
"or REIVER name, and it is likely they came from FERMANAGH, where most of the Scots Planters settled.

INFORMATION REGARDING AN IRISH WILL 1840 KILLBERRYHEATH, GLOUNALOUGH. This message dates back to 1998 and
we would love to contact author, who is no longer a valid email addressee.
SURNAMES: COOPER, BARRY and STANLEY
July 28, 1840 In the name of God.Amen. 1. ANNE COOPER of GLOUNAGLOUGH (sp) in the County of Cork, make this my
last will and testament. Item first – describes burial) Item 2 I give and bequeath to my brother, James Cooper, five pounds
every year Irish Currency during his natural life and no longer in a full and ample manner as I have been left the same by
my father, THOMAS COOPER, the said annuity to be paid half yearly out of the lands of Keel (KEALE?) being part of
Killberryheath and after his disease (decease?) to revert and go to ANNE COOPER the daughter of ANTHONY COOPER, my
niece, and JAMES COOPER, the son of FRANCIS COOPER, my nephew, and to their assigns forever in manner following
that is to say two pounds yearly to my niece aforesaid, and three pounds yearly to my nephew aforesaid and to their heirs
and assigns forever and in case the said JAMES COOPER, my nephew, shall not attain the age of 21 years, then to go to
JOHN COOPER his brother my nephew also, and to his heirs and in case either of them should not attain the age of 21
then to FRANCIS COOPER my nephew and assigns forever. I also appoint BARRY COOPER and FRANCIS COOPER my
brothers Executors to this my last will and testament……ANNE COOPER Present James Looney Peter Good and Henry
A letter accompanied this will.
In 1923 BARRY COOPER (not the one in this will) wrote a letter to FRANCIS COOPER (also not the one in the will) His
nephew and son of his brother JOHN S. COOPER, which he states
“I sent you a copy of a will that your father (WE BELIEVE THIS IS JOHN COOPER, ANNE’S NEPHEW) was heir to a legacy.
You know your father was a IRISH landlord and had 25 to 30 tenants but in 1844 the great Irish famine came and they
would not pay any rent. It was nothing but fighting. He had to mortgage the estate to make a living for his big family of 9
children. Kept on for several years so finally they sold him out and we all scattered. Our Grandfather owned a whole
township and out of these lands our Aunt Anne owned an interest and left part to your father. I was born 9 mths then
when that will was made. I had this will allowed in 1862 when I was in Europe. I stayed with my uncle THOMAS STANLEY
of BANDON, Ireland The estates were about 20 miles from theirs but I had no way to collect the legacy. It would amount
to considerable now but those things are all held up in New Ireland. The lands were given to our family by the English
government when they conquered Ireland. Our forefathers were officers in the invading army”
HISTORY of DEEDS..”From Thomas Williams to JAMES BARRY 28 Feb1738 a free farm grant given him by James I was
king and after him Q.Elizabeth. Lands called Withirrahberg and Witherramore who deeded the lands to EPENITUS
FITZGIBBONS and JOHN BARRY and ***** RICHARD HENRY
RADLEY****** . This BARRY was my father’s grand uncle and gave him his estate. FITZGIBBONS sold his place in 1848. My
father was sold out for money he borrowed on place from Lawyer AHERN, 45,000 pounds. He died in 1844. The widow
sold your grandfather out in 1847. All the older children got their Uncle Clarke who owned an interest in 2 lumber sailing
schooners. One ship called the Mary Anne. I came in his schooner called “TRY AGAIN” with others of his family to
America. Your father was between 15 and 16 yrs old and went to New York where he learned his trade as blacksmith. I
was abt five yrs old when father was sold out. All the balance of the children went to Quebec where Uncle’s influence got
them places. I went back to my Uncle Tom Stanley in Bandon where I learned my trade. This is how I got all my
information abt family. I have an old document dated 1166. The Barry families history until he became Lord Barrymore.
My mother’s sister md JOHN BARRY a lineal descendent of this family.

NOTES ON CHINNERY. Source Michael Leader F.I.G.R.S.
The father of MARVELLA CHINNERY, GEORGE, is said to have married the widow of the father of the two LEADER brothers
who married the two RADLEY sisters. According to Leader tradition, the mother of the two men came out to Ireland from
England after they had settled down in County Cork. This is possible- from the dates- but I feel IMPROBABLE. In any case,
an abstract from an Irish Chancery Court Lawsuit, sent to me by Mr Weiply, puts all the accepted Irish origins of the
Leaders back into the melting pot. The two brothers JOHN and HENRY have always been taken to have been the first
Leaders in County Cork. The suit in question shows that a John Leader held 66 acres of land near Kinsale by lease as from
1638, dying intestate in 1650 and his son, another John Leader dying, also intestate 1668, leaving a widow Joan who was
still alive in 1693.
LEADERs are on list of CROMWELLIAN ADVENTURERS who were granted land in County Cork. I think some people mix
them up with Richard Leader, Iron Works Manager, U.S.A. (web page owner) See Donna Chernik’s paragraph on Richard
Leader, Iron Works Manager, on this page.

It is likely that they are cousins of Radleys of Knockraur.From 1700 to 1850 all Radleys lived in a 20 mile radius of
Aghabullogue. There were, and are now, 10 families by that name in Cork. Six families are descended from above
ROBERT RADLEY. All are R.C.
Woodley family in connection with LINDSAY, RADLEY, JERVOIS/HODDER
Source Researcher Joan Platt - descendent.
The HODDER family originated in Dorset, a few miles from Longbredy, Weymouth and Melcombe Regis was a big port
long ago and merchants used it to travel the world. Some of the HODDERs were merchants.
FRANCIS WOODLEY married ELIZABETH HODDER at CARRIGALINE in 1760.
They had one son FRANCIS, baptised 1/1/1762, who inherited LEADES HOUSE.
Elizabeth died 11th JULY 1766 and FRANCIS Senior remarried.
His second wife was Elizabeth NORRIS, who had son ANTHONY, from whom Joan Platt is descended.
The WOODLEYS came from Devon and were an army family.
RALPH WOODLEY was LORD OF MANOR OF BUCKLAND on the Moor on DARTMOOR in DEVON in 16th century.
His grandson, also RALPH, arrived in Ireland about 1818 and is mentioned in the LISMORE PAPERS as buying land in
BANDON from Earl Cork.
ANTHONY's son FRANCIS, married FRANCES JERVOIS, daughter of WILLIAM in1831.
Frances had arrived in Wales and married ANNE ELIZ JENKINS in HAVERFORDWEST.
Joan Platt is descended from this marriage.
Frances father WILLIAM JERVOIS could have been one of SAMUEL JERVOIS of BRADE illegitimate sons. If so WILLIAM
was my 3xtimes great grandmother's brother (ELIZABETH JERVOIS, dtr of SAMUEL JERVOIS married to JOHN MURPHY
ESQ of NEWTOWN).
RADLEY/LINDSAY/JERVOIS/MURPHY/HODDER are related.

THIS IS AN OLD BALLAD CONCERNING BENJAMIN LEADER ,OF STAKEHILL during the Land Wars 1879. Land League was
an Agitation to give tenants the land and dispossess the owners. Some stanzas are as follows.
BOYCOTT OF BEN LEADER
"The number that day was two hundred and three. They came from Kiskeam and famed Boherrue, Derinagree and
Coolclough came determined to spill, the BLOOD OF THAT VERMIN WHO LIVED ON STAKEHILL.
DAN CASEY the brave, at the jail did not shudder, his face it with joy at the sight of his mother. It bounded with pride when
he heard brother Bill, saying "I'll SOON TYRANNIZE THE J.P FROM STAKEHILL"
BEN LEADER was the son of my Great great Aunt MARGARET RADLEY married to JOHN LEADER of KEALE. He was nephew
to my Great grandfather RICHARD HENRY RADLEY.

NOTES ON LEADERS OF MT. LEADER AND KEALE AND THEIR RELATIONS RADLEYS OF KNOCKRAUR
NOTE******* Richard Leader, Iron Works Manager of Saugus River,Maine is NOT connected in any way with the Millstreet
Leaders. It is a strange co-incidence that his relatives were Radleys from Essex County.New Jersey(c.1681). not related to
CORK Radleys. There is a living descendent of this particular Radley/Leader connection., whose New England ancestors
include Richard Leader, Iron Works Mgr. His daughter Anne Leader b.1644/49 married in New Hampshire, Samuel Clarke,
and they are her direct ancewstors. Confusion with two families is to be expected, as Richard Leader did actually come to
Ireland around 1644 but returned to Maine,.He died there in 1660. Leaving two daughters. The Leaders of Millstreet are
descended from a Cromwellian soldier and can be found on list of Cromwellian Adventurers.************
Abstract from Irish Chancery Court Lawsuit states that a JOHN LEADER held 66 acres of land near KINSALE by lease as from
1638, dying intestate in 1650 and his son, also John Leader, dying intestate in1668, leaving a widow Joan who was still
alive in1693. Source Michael Leader F.I.G.R.S
The Radleys of Knockraur intermarried with Leaders of Keale, Mt Leader and Tullig......from 1600s. The Leaders of Keale
are as follows......
Leonard Leader of Stakehill b1762 married Sarah White in 1796..Nicholas White, her brother, married Frances Radley (dtr
of my 3rd gt gfr Richard Radley of Knockraur.in 1773.
John Leader of Keale MD married Margaret Radley 1836. She was the dtr of my 2xgt gt grandfather Thomas Radley, esq.

RICHARD LEADER.Ironworks Manager, Sagus River Maine. This article points out that Richard Leader is NOT the
progenitor of the LEADER family of Keale, Cork and Mt Leader, Cork ,Ireland.
Ms Donna Chernick is one of the living descendents of Richard Leader and writes:
" I have Radleys who first appeared in Essex County. New Jersey as early as 1681, with some saying they were originally
Radcliffe or Ratcliffe, possibily from Connectcutt before going to New Jersey. This was John Ratcliffe, and before he died,
the story goes his wife changed spelling to RADLEY and it remained thus from then on. My gggrandmother was Hetty
Radley,born1815 IN Hardin County KY and died HOLT Co.MO 1866 She was marred to JOHN SEARS 1836/7 Coles Co.IL. I
descend from JOHN RADLEY/RADCLIFFE 1 down through 2 other Johns and the 2 Ichabod Radleys.Further north in NH and
Maine I descend from Radcliffe/Radcliff/Rackellff who came from England in 1600s.
MY NEW ENGLAND ANCESTORS ALSO INCLUDE LEADERs.who CAME FROM ENGLAND. RICHARD LEADER b1609 d 1661 in
Sussex, England then went to Ireland, then to Massachusetts. His daughter ANNE LEADER 1644/49 m in New Hamp.
SAMUEL CLARKE, and they are my direct ancestors"
The daughter of RICHARD LEADER .. ANN CLARK was alive in1723 and she deposed 6 April 1720 she be appointed admin.
Of estates of RICHARD and GEORGE (his brother), calling herself ONLY LIVING SURVIVING CHILD OF RICHARD LEADER and
heir of GEORGE. (Her sister Elizabeth was killed by Indians 1705)
NOTEWORTHY Henry Leader. Brother of John Leader of Keale died 1738, yet Anne Leader Clark claimed to be only
surviving child of Richard Leader. As far as we are aware, Henry Leader of Flintfield was their father. NOT Richard Leader.
Henry and John married Jane and Margaret Radley. As these people are my direct ancestors, I take exception to being
told I am related to Richard Leader, who I believe did not go to Cork but Limerick.
Another thought. The Irish naming pattern is a useful tool for researchers. Only one Richard in Keale Branch.(Margaret
Radley Leader named her son RICHARD RADLEY LEADER) and in MT LEADER branch there are about 3 RICHARDS . All
related to RADLEYS. JOHN, HENRY and LEONARD are usual LEADER names . And another thought if you can take any
notice of World Connect, there are many descendents of Richard Leader in USA. None even mention an Irish connection.
My personal opinion is that people often try to fit a coincidental name to a circumstance without researching thoroughly.
The following are the direct descendents of HENRY LEADER from SAFFRON WALDEN ESSEX ENGLAND. And are most likely
the ancestors of Cork, Ireland, LEADERS.
These LEADERS of ESSEX were LANDOWNERS, TANNERS AND DRAPERS. See Burkes and Gen. and Heraldic History of
Commoners of Gt Britain and Ireland,.
