About Rev. Frederick Fitzpatrick Rector of Cloone, Co. Leitrim

Frederick Fitz-Patrick (1821 –1898)

The Rev. Fitz-Patrick was born in Bryn Edwyn and was educated, in Holy Orders, with a Masters of Arts at Trinity College. He was Rector of Cloone, Co. Leitrim, at Virginia, Co. Cavan, and a Magistrate for Co. Cavan.

While at the Rectory in Virginia, Co. Cavan, the Rev. was considered dashing, well educated and the owner of fine horses. He met with one of his parishioners, the Lady Olivia Taylour (Lady In Waiting to Queen Victoria). Lady Olivia was the daughter of Lord Thomas Taylour, 2nd Marquees of Headford and the Gentleman In Waiting to the Queen. The Rev. and the Lady Olivia were married August 10, 1853.

The Rev. Frederick Fitz-Patrick was not inclined to the life of a country parson; or, perhaps, the more English minded congregation viewed him with stern disapproval. The Rev. gentleman was very fond of the chase and would take a morning service with a surplice thrown over his riding kit and hurry through it as fast as he could and then ride off with the hounds. Sometimes he would forget the evening service; then remember suddenly, throw on a surplice and stole without changing from his hunting outfit.

The Rev. retired from Cloone Grange, Co. Leitrim to Warren Hall near Chester, England. He and Lady Olivia later resided at Plas Draw, Llangyntal in the Valley of Clyde, Wales. Their place of rest may be seen at Llanbedr Church yard beneath a magnificently carried Celtic Cross.
