This COULTER family tree is the one connected with the famed botanist, Thomas COULTER of Carnbeg. Much of it originated with materials found in the Dundalk library and has been altered as new evidence emerges thanks to the work of Wendy Jack, Steven Sims and others. I suspect that the people in this tree are linked to the COULTERs of Cavananore, but since we are still missing some of the connecting bits of data - I can't prove this yet.

 

I am particularly indebted to E. Charles Nelson, the author of A Man Who Can Speak of Plants: Dr. Thomas COULTER (1793-1843)1994. This splendid book was published privately in a run of 500 copies. I have #467.

 

There are a number of people who are descendants of the people named in this tree who I would love to be able to connect with (if they are still living). These family members are: Brian COULTER; the descendants of the late Dr. Michael COULTER; Mrs. Barbara HANNA; Ian Coulter SMYTH; Phillip HARRISON and C.T. McCREA.

 

  • p. 153: There is mention of Barbara HANNA nèe COULTER who in 1963 donated the portrait in oils of Thomas COULTER to Trinity College, Dublin. Her brother was “the late Dr. Michael COULTER”. Heather HARRISON nèe COULTER had many of the family letters. NOTE: These could be extremely useful to understanding more about the family lines.
  • Philip HARRISON who contributed to this book also contributed to the notes at Dundalk Library (which I had read and noted before I knew of A Man Who Can Speak of Plants).

·         Dundalk Library family tree, Graduated from Trinity College with a degree in medicine and subsequently studied botany in Paris and Geneva. He worked in Mexico and California and brought back the white flowering poppy subsequently named "Romneya Coultieri". The herbarium at Trinity was established in 1840, with the personal herbarium of Thomas Coulter as its nucleus.

·         A Man Who Can Speak of Plants, 7.); b. 28 Sep 1793 d. 28 Nov 1843, Dublin, Ireland.

o   P1. Dr. Thomas Coulter of Dundalk is remembered as a botanist, was particularly as the person who discovered the beautiful white-flowered matilija (California tree poppy) which is best known by its scientific name Romneya coulteri (Plate 1). The use of a single word ‘botanist’ to encompass the life work of Thomas Coulter is most an adequate, however, for he was a man of many interests, with considerable skills and fields of knowledge far removed from botany.

o   P1. Coulter was a charitable kindly physician. His passion for the natural world led him to collect and study insects and reptiles as well as plants. He was a superb angler and an excellent shot with a rifle. Through his friend the Rev. Dr. Thomas Romney Robinson, he developed a strong interest in astronomy and he was a competent surveyor and draughtsman. For almost one decade, Coulter lived in Mexico where he had responsibility for managing silver and lead mines. He explored the country, riding many hundreds of miles through central Mexico and Southern California. Coulter was fluent in Spanish and having also lived and worked in France and Switzerland, in French. He knew some of the greatest botanist of his era, men such as Robert Brown, Aylmer Bourke Lambert, Alexander von Humbolt and Augustin-Pyramus de Candolle; they respected him any value their friendship.

o   P. 154: "Thomas Coulter was tall, handsome, and an excellent shot, and as William Harvey observed, addicted to fly fishing. He was perhaps not so much courageous as oblivious to danger."

o   P.155: “Coulter went to Mexico as a physician, to attend to the miners brought out from England. The accounts that survive suggest he was a charitable man who put his patients first and did not care about payment. Alas, he was unable to cure himself of the severe and unpleasant illnesses that beset him in his latter years. Gout, rheumatism and a serious intestinal condition ultimately sapped his strength and his will, and contributed to his early death.”

·         Tempest Annual Centenary 1859-1959, 122, Mr. Joseph A. Coulter, JP, of Dowdallshill and Roden Place (the second son of Mr. Robert Coulter solicitor and first Secretary of the Lighting Paving and Improvement Committee, 1832), spent the early part of his life abroad, in the service of the Hudson's Bay Company and elsewhere, and at one time acting or Deputy Governor of Vancouver Island. He was with the escort who late accompanied Lady Franklin [Jane Franklin (1791-1875), the daughter of John Griffin, silk weaver, and Mary Guillemard, was born in London. In 1828 she married John Franklin, who was appointed lieutenant-governor of Van Diemen's Land in 1836] on her last expedition in search of her husband, Sir John Franklin, the Arctic explorer. His family has been connected with this county for seven or eight generations. For many years at up to the time of his death in 1901, he was the able Secretary of the Dundalk Gas Company.  He married the daughter of Mr. John McDowell of Mullaharlin.  His eldest son, Mr. Arthur S. Coulter, B.A., Solicitor has inherited his father's practical commonsense and integrity.  NOTE: This article mentions 7 or 8 generations – we can only so far go back 5 to Alexander COULTER born in Scotland. I suspect that Joseph Arthur COULTER travelled with Leopold McCLINTOCK of Dundalk on the ship “The Fox” that was sponsored by Lady Franklin, but that she was not on the ship. This ship returned in 1859.

·         http://water.nv.gov/Water%20planning/carson/carson2.htm#N_165_  1868 (February) Construction was begun by Joseph Coulter on the Mount Bullion Tunnel Company Dam and Mill. The dam was located on the Carson River East Fork just above its confluence with Monitor Creek. The mill was ready in May 1869 and on the 15th of that month a flood weakened the structure. In December 1871 the dam failed completely and washed into the Monitor & Northwestern Company Dam located just downstream. The dam was never replaced.

Coulter [His son, a solicitor] Gentleman and Robert J. Coulter F.R.C.S.I. [ Facts about Robert J. COULTER (b. 1868-)

o   He was the son of Samuel Alexander COULTER & Elizabeth PARKS.

o   In the 1901 census of England, Robert James Coulter was enumerated at Bristol Gloucestershire; age: 32, birthplace: Dundalk, Ireland, occupation: ophthalmic surgeon. It would seem likely that he was the same Robert J. Coulter FRCSI who was an executor of the will of Joseph Arthur Coulter.

o   Since Robert J. COULTER was orphaned at the age of three, presumably he was raised by a relative and if Joseph Arthur COULTER was his uncle (brother of Samuel Alexander COULTER), he would be a logical candidate for the guardian. This likely speculation thanks to from Wendy Jack. Email Nov 8, 2008.

o   Joseph Arthur COULTER has one brother whom we have no name for as yet, as well as another sibling. It is possible that Samuel Alexander COULTER was one of these siblings. It is also telling that he and his wife are on the Carnbeg COULTERs gravestone.

The death of a wife in childbirth was not unusual, nor was the speedy marriage afterwards.

·         Notes at Dundalk Library, He inherited Dowdallshill from his Uncle Joseph who died in 1796. In 1796 or 97 Joe moved to Dowdallshill taking perhaps Francesca as housekeeper. She was now 27.  In 1802 Joe who was 46, married Jane Irwin who was 17. In 1803 the first of their six children was born and they took over the upbringing of Sam & Annies 5, presumably at Dowdallshill

Joseph COULTER had married Jane Irwin in the summer of 1802, and the couple now took on the formidable task of looking after their orphaned nephews and niece. This was a formidable enterprise for Jane Coulter, who was only 17 years old (21 years younger than her husband) and who had only recently given birth to her first child, Samuel.
