Notes for JOHN WESLEY JOYNT:

Ballina, [Mayo, Ireland] Oct. 15th 1869

I am yet in the old house at home, and will be God willing until 1st May, 1870, I rent it from Henry to that date, for the last 10 years I have the large garden from which New Garden St. took its name (Colonel Knox's old garden) 2 1/2 acres Irish measure, from time to time I planted a good many fruit trees in it, nearly every sort of fruit tree that can grow in open air. The crops are potatoes, wheat and vegetables for the market. It is a profitable amusement, some years the crops are not as good as other years, therefore the profits are less. Last spring I got an addition of 3/4 of an acre to it, but had to spend 50having a wall built round it, this winter I intend to plant some fruit trees in it. There is a house of Sir K. Gores attached later, garden on the Barring Road, the tennant of which is expected to leave in May, which house I intend to get if I can. Living in that house I would be living in my garden, there is but a wall between the large garden and the small one. I have 2 doors in the wall which make one garden of the two, and William has my mother's old garden attached to her house, a wall separating it from my large one in which I had a door. I go from the house into garden after garden without going into the street. If I get the house I mentioned, I close the door into Williams garden and then will be completely shut out from Arthur St. and live in Garden St. In my father's Will I was left Crossmolina. I am now getting in the firs half year's rent for it. It will be about 40 a year, I also get between 40 and 50 a year for collecting the Tolls of the Trone, that is all the way I have to make a living by. I thank God for his goodness to me, I am not dependant on any one but on God. No-one ever served him for naught. My dear Mother, when on her death bed, sat up in the bed and clapping her hands in an extacy said "Who has ever served the Lord for naught". I can well say as too. William and Henry and I think intend to sell all the household property when they get some point of law settled. My Father left William his own house, and James the house between Williams and this house, subject to 10 a year to be given to my Mother, so (there) is only this house, the store, and the 8 ?? of Mr. Knox's to be sold. It may be some time before the sale takes place.

Henrietta has got Will married and is living in Dublin. Sarah Blakeney lived with me since Henriettas marriage till the present, she leaves me now to live with her mother in the other end of the town. She is to be married to a Mr. Sairs [Sayers] a Methodist preacher, this is his 3rd year travelling, he was in this town 2 years, this year he is in Longford, they are to be married after he is ordained, which won't be for nearly 2 years yet. When Christopher went to the Abyssinian War he sent Lily and the children home, she now returns to India. She leaves her eldest child Henry Noble with Mr. Bell for 4 years, by which time Chris intends returning home for 18 mths leave. I have Frederick William Bourke, Marias eldest son living with me he goes to school, he and the servant are all that live with me now. Richards wife and child (a girl) are well. They live in Knox St. where they have the Herald Office. James, Lizzie and their 7 children are well, they have a nice cottage at Coolcran, Miss Grey a preacher's daughter is their Governess. Maria has 6 sons, no daughters, they are all well. I suppose you heard of the death of Williams eldest son Henry a year ago out of Persia. All the rest of the family are well.

The old sore has year after year become less, so that now it has almost ceased to be troublesome. Thank God for all his goodness to me. 

Your affectionate Brother, John.

HOUSE OF LORDS

JOYNT'S DIVORCE BILL.

In this matter a Bill had been introduced into the House and has been read a first time. The object of the Bill was to dissolve the marriage of Richard Watson Joynt, of Ballina, in the county of Mayo, Ireland, newspaper proprietor, with Charlotte Barker Joynt, now his wife, and to enable him to marry again for other purposes.

Mr. LEWIS COWARD was heard this morning on behalf of Mr. Joynt in support of a petition praying that a duly attested copy of the will might be transmitted by registered letter to Daniel G. Gillette of 34, Nassau-street, New York, in the United States of America, and that the attendance of Mr. Gillette before the House to prove the personal service of the copy of such Bill, notice of the second reading of the Bill, and of the usual orders of the House, on Mrs. Charlotte Joynt, might be dispensed with, and that an affidavit of Mr. Gillette of such personal service, sworn before the British Minister in New York, under the provisions of the 18th and 19th Vic., c. 42, might be deemed good and sufficient proof of such service. The application was made with the object of saving the expense of sending over to America some person who on his return to this country would be able to give evidence of personal service on the wife on the second reading of the Bill.

On the motion of the LORD CHANCELLOR.

The prayer of the petition was granted by their Lordships.

JOYNT'S DIVORCE.

Their Lordships sat this morning to hear counsel and evidence in support of the second reading of a Bill promoted by Mr. Richard Watson Joynt of Ballina, in the county of Mayo, Ireland, the object of which was to dissolve his marriage with Charlotte Barker Joynt, his now wife, and to enable him to marry again.

The noble and learned lords present were the Lord Chancellor, Lord Watson, Lord Fitzgerald, and Lord Mcnaghten.

Mr. Coward appeared for the petitoner; the respondent was not represented.

Mr. L. COWARD, in opening the case in support of the second reading of the Bill, said that his client, Mr. Richard Watson Joynt, was a newspaper proprietor at Ballina, in the county of Mayo, in Ireland. The parties were married at Kilrush, in the county of Clare, on August 8, 1867, and they lived happily to the end of 1879, there being nine children issue of the marriage. At the beginning of 1880 the petitioner received information which induced him to believe that his wife had been unfaithful to him. He thereupon separated from her and brought an action for crim.con. against Mr. James Jackson, the manager of the Bank of Ireland at Ballina, who resided opposite to them, and obtained a verdict for 1,000, with costs. The petitioner had, however, not been able to obtain any portion of the damages and costs. In July of the same year the petitioner obtained a decree of divorce a mensa et thoro in the Irish Matrimonial Court. Mrs. Joynt was now resident in New York, and she had been served under an order of the House with copies of the Bill and the proceedings as far as they had gone. By reason of the costs incurred in legal proceedings and in consequence of want of means the petitioner had been unable to take any further steps to dissolve his marriage until now. Evidence would be given before the Lordships which would establish the case in support of the second reading of the Bill.

Mr. Samuel M'Cormick of Dublin, the solicitor, acting on behalf of the petitioner proved that substituted service had been made upon Mrs. Joynt in New York.

Mr. Richard Waston Joynt, the petitioner, said that he was a newspaper proprietor residing in Ballina in the county of Mayo, in Ireland. He married his wife in 1867, and they lived happily until 1879 when he had cause for the first time to suspect her of infidelity with Mr. Jackson. In January of 1880 he received the following letter from her:-

"Richill, January 19, 1880.

"Dear Dick,- Mr. Orr has given me your message. As a very painful duty I take up my pen once more to write on the unpleasant subject of my ruin. I feel that I owe a duty to my friends, and therefore-God is my judge-I shall tell the truth, and nothing but the truth. If possible I would spare Mr. Jackson, but that cannot be done unless I perjure myself. you know when you married me I was the purest of women. The thought of such sad deeds as the devil has tempted me to had never found entrance to my brain or heart. I believe that soon after my arrival at Ballina Mr. Jackson began to look admiringly at me. He told me so about three years ago. He even delighted to look at my beautiful little babies as they grew up, and the nurses used to tell me of his remarks as to the weather being too cold for them to be out, &c., if he met them, and on one occasion, as a magistrate, he tried to lighten the punishment of Bridget Kape, otherwise Ormsby, who was at Court for beating her husband. Mr. Jackson told me he was thinking of me then, knowing Bridget had been Alice's nurse. I thanked him, but expressed disappointment that he had not pronounced worse sentence. Maggie Cafferty was our servant. She first brought about the acquaintance. She told me that Mr. Jackson said I was a very nice little woman, and he heard I was a 'decent soul,' and he would like to speak to me and how could he manage it. It never occurred to me that it was out of place for him to talk thus to a servant. The first time he spoke to me was on a Sabbath evening; you were at church, Maggie was at the hall door, Mr. Jackson was walking outside. The plan had evidently been made up. 'Come here, ma'am, ' said Maggie, 'for a moment, please,' and when I went over Mr. J. was standing in the door way. He commenced to talk in a pleasant, off-hand style, and I answered him innocently enough. I knew I chatted to him, thought the only question I remember him asking was how many children I had. I remember his saying he considered if foolish to have too many,and had often spoken to his father seriously upon the responsibility they incurred. All this time Maggie was in Mostyn's office, and the hall door open. We stood talking there, and after conversation for about ten minutes he shook hands with me and went away. I thought no more about him, only that he was a fine, jolly, big man, and very good-looking. After a day or two Maggie said, Mr. Jackson won't be content till he speaks to you again, ma'am, and I told him I would get him asked in sure some evening.' 'Oh! nonsense,' said I,' what good will that do him. The master would not like it.' The next time he spoke to me was one night when you were at Kilcummin. He and Maggie had, I suppose, arranged for I know I was not even ready for visitors of any kind. I had been house cleaning all day. You remember I set up the new clock from Jameson's. I now, after cleaning and dusting the house, washed my hair and brightened myself a bit, but my hair was all about me, uncombed, and only dried after washing, and i was so rakish-looking I was afraid of any one seeing me. Maggie had been out, and I went to let her in and as I hid behind the door she said, 'Oh! ma'am. Mr. Jackson's outside, speak to him.' 'Not in this trim,' said I. But somehow, before I knew, he was got into the hall, and trying to take his watch off my wild-looking head and only a morning dress at 9 at night, asked him if he had his keys about him and if he would open the clock. He threw down his stick and took me in his arms and kissed me. I walked upstairs, and he followed me, and I said, 'Oh! my poor husband; go away, Mr Jackson,' and he went after that. I believe I never left his thoughts. He left no means untried to gain me. I fought it out as long as I could but at last he made me love him. I have been more than his wife. He loved me wildly. He told me he would have died for me. I have met him in daylight. I have met him at night, when the world was sleeping. He has walked miles to see me. Car drivers can be had, and if necessary I shall in a very short time substantiate all proofs, but I want to be as merciful as possible, for I loved him, indeed I did, and many a happy hour I have spent in the Bank of Ireland-many a one. I know it well from top to cellar. I know Woodbine Cottage well, too, and Scurmase. He was kind, he was gentlemanly, he was intensely fond of me. The very touch of his hand was happiness to me. I have risked my life often for his sake. I confess my guilt. He need not deny anything. He first loved me; he trusted me with all his mind, banking affairs and all. Every dinner he went to he told me and every journey he took I knew from him. He gave me plenty of money and presents. His great dread was my taking drink. Twenty witnesses I can give you if necessary but I am weary and heartsore. When Leonard was in Ballina I was wretched. I told Mr. Jackson I felt very wicked and I would give him up. He replied he would take no humbug from me; so I met him again. I said I would give him up, but he would not hear of it. He was nearly mad about my going to Dublin with Mr. and Mrs. Baxter; he was so jealous. Mr. Baxter is free- free as the child unborn. He never had undue intimacy with me. I believe him to be my sincere friend. I got a fright one night when I went to meet Mr. Jackson. Got only knows what I have gone through for Mr. Jackson and although he commenced my ruin I upbraid him not. I met him in Dublin in September, and when I was at my father's in November 12 months he wrote to me. He was at the Grenville Arms Hotel, Millinger, and he wanted me to meet him on my way home. He went to tell ' John G.' telegraphed to him from Kilrush as 'J.B.' He always gave me money when I went from home and after or before I was sick. He gave me money in Dublin. I could have run away long ago, only for my children. I was so fond of them. He brought me lots of gloves from Dublin and he gave me the large rug. Dudgeon can tell you that. He used to send me grapes and champagne, and one one occasion he gave me about two dozen pocket-handkerchiefs. Again, one night I was up in his bedroom; he gave me more. The night I jumped out of bed at Enniscrone-do you recollect the night?- there were footsteps behind the house. It was he, and I sent him home. And now I shall say no more. I have told you no falsehoods, and Mr. Jackson will injure, and not help himself by denying facts, for proofs as strong as Holy Writ can in a very short time be found. He,and he alone, lured me from my husband and implanted in my mind the first sinful thought concerning the other sex. He coaxed me, and sent me into a delirium. I was by him as though mesmerized, and even now in my downfall and dejection I would if I could say something to lighten his sorrow and trouble-- LOTTIE JOYNT."

He had taken the necessary legal proceedings to enable him to promote this Bill, but he had been hampered by want of means since 1880, and, therefore, had been unable to bring in this Bill before.

Other evidence having been given,

The LORD CHANCELLOR said that the history of this case was a very melancholy one. It appeared to him that the petitioner had clearly established a case, which entitled him to the relief he prayed for. He, therefore, moved their Lordships that the Bill be read a second time.

The Bill was then read a second time.

15. GEORGE LAWRENCE4 JOYNT (WILLIAM3, HENRY2, HENRY1) was born Abt. 1863. He married ANNIE BAILLIE MCKEE. She was born 1856 in England.

Notes for GEORGE LAWRENCE JOYNT:

Strangely, the 1901 census lists George's family as follows:

Father-George Lawrence Joynt-Head-Methodist-B.1863-age 38-Civil Engineer-b. Mayo
Mother-Annie Baillie (McKee not listed on census-Just Annie
Baillie)-Methodist-b. 1856-age 45-Lady-b. England
Dau.-Annestalia May Bailie Joynt-b.1895-age 6

QUESTION: So where was George Edgworth Joynt on this census when he was supposedly only age 11?

George Lawrence Joynt and Annie McKee Joynt are supposedly buried in Ardnaree Cemetery across the River Moy in Mayo. One family story has it that George Lawrence Joynt was the "trouble maker" of the family who changed his father's will to cheat other siblings out of their inheritance. George Lawrence Joynt was the son of William Joynt and Margaret Kelly of the Mayo line of Joynts. Another family story has it that George Edgworth Joynt came alone to CA from Ireland, leaving his family behind as he didn't get along with his father.

Children of GEORGE JOYNT and ANNIE MCKEE are:

Commemorative Information

Memorial: MESSINES RIDGE (N.Z.) MEMORIAL, Mesen, West-Vlaanderen, Belgium

Location: The Messines Ridge (New Zealand) Memorial to the Missing is situated within Messines Ridge British Cemetery, which is located 9.5 kilometres south of Ieper town centre on the Nieuwkerkestraat, a road leading from the Rijselseweg, N365, which connects Ieper to Wijtschate, Mesen and on to Armentieres. From Ieper town centre the Rijselsestraat runs from the market square, through the Lille Gate (Rijselpoort) and directly over the crossroads with the Ieper ring road. The road name then changes to the Rijselseweg. Nieuwkerkestraat is a right hand turning from the N365 in the town of Mesen. The memorial lies 250 metres after this right hand turning, on the left hand side of the road. The Memorial consists of a circular rubble wall, five feet eight inches high, built round a mound on which the Cross of Sacrifice is erected. It is approached by a paved path and steps, at the top of which is a covered seat. The names of over 800 soldiers of the New Zealand Expeditionary Force are recorded on Portland stone panels let into the circular wall, and on the back of the sheltered seat is the dedicatory inscription: HERE ARE RECORDED THE NAMES OF OFFICERS AND MEN OF NEW ZEALAND WHO FELL IN OR NEAR MESSINES IN 1917 AND 1918, AND WHOSE GRAVES ARE KNOWN ONLY TO GOD. A short distance south-west of the village, on the road to Ploegsteert, stands The Battle Exploit Memorial which was erected by the New Zealand Government. It takes the form of a white stone obelisk surrounded by a small terrace and garden, and was unveiled by the King of the Belgians on the 1st August, 1924.

Hi Cathy,

I stumbled over your web site whilst looking for info on Methodist chapels in Dublin.

My husband's great Aunt Frances Young was the second wife of one Ernest Edwin JOYNT. They married in 1914 and Ernest already had two children, Eiver and Maire by his first wife Ethel BRAY of Co Wicklow. Ernest was born 19th Dec? 1874 in Ballina, Co Mayo the son of Richard Joynt, editor of the Ballina Herald. Richard was the youngest son of a family of 17! but I have no further info except that they seem to have lived in Killala, Co Mayo.

Ernest went to Methodist College, Belfast (1888-1892), became chief draughtsman at the Inchicore railway works in Dublin and Principal of Bolton St. Technical schools, Dublin.

The only child of Ernest and Frances, Charlotte Genevieve, now Mrs J A Brookes lives (I think she is still alive) in Howth, Dublin and I have some anecdotal info from a couple of her letters, if you are interested. Rgds Elaine Young

-----------------------------------------------------------

Just thought I'd take some time out from work to give you some further updates as I am from the Joynt family line on my maternal. My great grandfather was Earnest Joynt, who was the last owner editor of the Ballina Herald in Mayo, and also collaborated in the updated translation of the bible into Gaelic. He died in about 1949 in Mayo. My grandfather, Iveur Joynt, died 1964, lived and died in Waterford City and was a branch manager for Hibernian Insurance. He had two children, Valerie Rose Joynt, born 1942, grew up in Waterford, now divorced living in Wicklow, and Maeve Yvonne Joynt, born 1943?? now married , surname Revis, living in Rochester, Kent England.

Valerie Joynt married in 1963, to a William Magill, three children, Nicholas, 1963, living in Boston USA, Louis,1964, living in London, Simon, Myself 1965, also living in London.

Anyway, hope I've been of help. any queries, please email me simonm@booth-clibborn.co.uk or home Smagill@freezone.co.uk I'll have more time later to give accurate information .

Just thought I'd take some time out from work to give you some further updates as I am from the Joynt family line on my maternal. My great grandfather was Earnest Joynt, who was the last owner editor of the Ballina Herald in Mayo, and also collaborated in the updated translation of the bible into Gaelic. He died in about 1949 in Mayo. My grandfather, Iveur Joynt, died 1964, lived and died in Waterford City and was a branch manager for Hibernian Insurance. He had two children, Valerie Rose Joynt, born 1942, grew up in Waterford, now divorced living in Wicklow, and Maeve Yvonne Joynt, born 1943?? now married , surname Revis, living in Rochester, Kent England.

Valerie Joynt married in 1963, to a William Magill, three children, Nicholas, 1963, living in Boston USA, Louis,1964, living in London, Simon, Myself 1965, also living in London.

Anyway, hope I've been of help. any queries, please email me simonm@booth-clibborn.co.uk or home Smagill@freezone.co.uk I'll have more time later to give accurate information .

40. CHARLOTTE GENEVIEVE5 JOYNT (ERNEST EDWIN4, RICHARD WATSON3, HENRY2, HENRY1) was born Sep 1915 in Dublin, Ireland. She married JOHN ALFRED BROOKES 1943.

Notes for CHARLOTTE GENEVIEVE JOYNT:

Named Charlotte after paternal great grandmother who fed all her tenants on their estate in Killala, Mayo during the Great Famine. (Charlotte Barker Sorsby Joynt). Named Genevieve because her father was in French mode at the time and Genevieve is the patron saint of Paris.

Transcript of a letter written by Charlotte Genevieve Brooks (nee Joynt) to Methodist College, Belfast in May 1966. Subject :- her father; Ernest Edwin Joynt.

 

My father was quite an interesting man and he lived at an interesting time in an interesting country. He knew all the old Gaelic Leaguers at the time when the Gaelic League was a serious society of scholars, professional and amateur, engaged in the fascinating and exiting work of discovering an unknown, ancient and quite remarkable language. They made it their business not only to learn Irish, but to create a modern literature in it. Mrs. De Valera was a particular friend of his, and he knew Pearse too. Miss Nora Nyland, librarian of the Co Sligo library, has a letter we gave her for a little museum she has in Sligo. This letter was from Pearse to my father, written in Irish, answering a question about the authorship of a book. If you are interested I could probably get it from her for you.

When we were young all manner of people came to visit us when we lived in Inchicore. The conversation was always very good, sometimes in Irish and sometimes in French, because my father was a "Francophile". He taught himself French and Spanish after he left school (I can relate some tales of his French classes in Methody, if you want them. They reflect no glory on the school). He knew French history very thoroughly and later became interested in what was rather pompously called the "Pan-Celtic Movement". He wrote a history of Ireland in French, published in Rennes in1935 - "Histoire de Irlande, des origines a l'Etat Libre", mainly for propaganda purposes for the Breton Nationalist Movement. If you want to know more about this I can tell you some other time. The only biographer to date of Patrick Pearse, was a close friend of his, the late Louis N. Le Roux, a Breton nationalist. I have a letter from M. Le Roux, in French, in which he discusses some points in the writing of the book. I can lend you this if you want it. I have only one copy of my father's "Histoire de Irlande". We should have more, but I don't know where they have got to. This would undoubtedly be interesting for your exhibition, but I have qualms about lending it, as it is now a rare book, more as a collector's curiosity than for its intrinsic merit. I can lend you copies of the New Testament and the translation of "The Pilgrim's Progress" when the time comes.

My father was not an original writer. His translations are correct, precise and a little stiff. Even his letters to us were stiff and awkward. This is very strange because he was an excellent conversationalist and a lively and humorous raconteur, and a most gifted and imaginative story-teller. When we were children he would invent cycles of fantastic stories, endless serials of which he would produce a spontaneous instalment every night before we went to bed. He used to say that the only self-defence he had against the brutalities of the other boys in Methody was to hold their interest with a serial adventure story until they fell asleep at night, in that awful period of the school day in the dormitory. He could have made a fortune, I believe, by writing childrens' stories as he told them. Yet the only childrens' book he ever wrote in Irish was a rather dull version of tales from Greek myth.

This gift of fantastic story-telling was in the family. His sister, the late Mrs. Josephine Burke, possessed it also. She used to enthral him as a child, by conjuring up a serial of imagined family life among the creatures of the rock-pools of Eniscrone, where they used to spend their summer holidays. She also was a lively and witty conversationalist, and a brilliant hostess. The rest of his family died young. He himself, as a new-born babe, was not expected to live, and his coffin was already ordered for him. A "handy-woman" from Crosmolina presented herself and said she could cure the baby. And this she did by rubbing goose-grease into his skin for two hours before a hot fire. His parents retained her as his nurse. She was a native-speaker of Irish and he learned some from her. She was also, it would seem, quite a speaker of English too, because she terrified the wits out of him with ghost-stories before he was put to bed.

His father, Richard Joynt, was the youngest son of a family of seventeen, and remembered well the Great Famine. His paternal grandmother baked bread for all the tenants on their estate in Killala during the famine year as well as rearing her seventeen children. This branch of the family was converted to "Methodism" by an itinerant preacher who rejoiced in the glorious name of Gideon Ousley. This is a part of family history I have always intended to try to find out more about. I never heard any mention of this preacher. Did you? I once saw our family tree, but I don't know where it is now. There was also an account of some family history of Huguenot descent, and it seems the original name was Joyant. Richard Joynt was the editor of "The Ballina Herald". He was a fierce Parnellite at a time when this was considered treason by his fellow Protestants. He brought my father to Russia to see the coronation of the last Tzar, (1894). I had his Russian passport, and I think I can get it for you if you want it. They went with a party of Methodists, I know, or at any rate there were Methodist ministers in the party. The Methodists were certainly enterprising.

My father was a sincere Methodist. He was a local preacher and his faith meant a great deal to him. His aim in his later life was to make the Methodists national-minded. He hated the north, in so far as he was capable of hating anything, for he was essentially a mild man. But in his earlier life his religion was Railways. He was mad on railways. The jargon of railway life was part of our earliest language - points, marshalling yards and the like. We were always being made go up on the footplate of the engine. He knew all the engine drivers on the old Great Southern. None of us ever liked railways and this was a disappointment to him. Perhaps we got too much of it. The "Work's" wall bounded our garden in Inchicore and the "Work's" hooter guided our lives. We lived and moved and had our being in a kind of Arcana generated by the Works. Everyone in Inchicore, except the shopkeepers, was in the Works. It was a life unto itself. Society was divided into social classes of boiler-makers, cabinet-makers, clerks etc.. Religious creeds made no difference at all. I was an adult before I met religious bigotry. If you search the copies of the "Methodist Advocate" in the Nineteen-twenties, you will find an account of my father's apprenticeship there. This is the liveliest thing he ever wrote (in English!). My niece (Mrs. W. D. Magill, 12, Gilford Avenue, Dublin 4) has the original copy, and she might lend it to you.

I think I have covered all points. I can enlarge upon any of them if you wish. I am afraid I have been somewhat diffuse. I have some photographs I can send you. Of his life at Methody the least said the better. Naturally I did not say in the letter I wrote to the paper all he had to say on the subject because I do not wish to prejudice people against the college as it is now - very different of course, as all schools are.

In politics he was a home ruler, never a believer in physical force, although he admired the leaders of the 1916 Rising for their idealism and courage, as most people did. He later supported De Valera's party when it came to power in 1932. I have memories of the Black-and-Tan raids in Inchicore. Our house was the first on the road and beside the Methodist Church and for this reason it was never raided, as nearly every other house on the road was. The Methodist minister would be considered a loyal subject of the Crown. My mother used to hang a photograph of the Royal Family in the hall, in the superstitious hope that if we were raided, it would prevent the Black-and-Tans from penetrating further into the house and discovering the bookshelves of incriminating Irish books. When my father would catch sight of this picture he would firmly take it down. I also have a clear picture of him walking out of the church when "God save the King" was being sung. I admired his courage greatly while wishing he wouldn't do it all the same and make a show of the family! Great times, those!

The name Joynt is nearly died out now. When he was young there were 40 Joynts in the Methodist church in Ballina, a great triumph for Gideon Ousley. He had a son and daughter by his first wife, Ethel Bray, who died after giving birth to my half-sister, and I am the only child of the second marriage. My half-brother, Eiver, died a few years ago. He has two daughters, both married, and my sister never married. I have four children. There is a distant relation by the name of Joynt in Dublin who has a son at Wesley, I think, but there are no other male Joynts in the country.
