Mar. 5, 1845 Tallow, County Waterford, Ireland

Death:  May 21, 1920, Limerick, County Limerick, Ireland

John A. Haydn, Sr. spent his earliest days at school in Youghal, and then proceeded on to Fermoy College.

On 1 July 1862 he entered Trinity College (Dublin) when he was 17 years old. There he obtaining his B.A. Degree in Divinity Testimonium in 1866, and his M.A. Degree in 1870. In 1871, he obtained both his LL.BN. and LL.D. Degrees.

John A. Haydn, Sr. passed his divinity test in 1867 and was ordained a deacon of the Church of Ireland in 1868.

In 1869 he was ordained a priest for the diocese of Limerick.

(1868-1869) - John Armour Haydn's first appointment was as a curate for St. Michael's in Limerick.

(1869-1872) - He was appointed Vicar and Rector of Chapel Russel (village of Pallaskenry, civil parish of Chapelrussel, County Limerick).

(1873-1918) - He was appointed Rector of Nantenan, the parish he ministered in for the rest of his career, until two years before he died.

(1891) - Canon of the Diocese of Limerick

John Armour Haydn, Sr. married Louisa Sarah Young on 29 April 1873, in the Rathdown Registration District. Louisa and John Haydn had four children. It is my understanding that none of these children married, so there are no other direct descendants of Louisa and John Armour Haydn.

I do have an obit for John Haydn, Sr. and some letters that John Haydn, Sr. wrote to the family; some photos also sent to them; as well as an original watercolor he did of his wife Louisa's grave. A crop of that is attached to her memorial. I also have a letter he wrote to the family about Louisa's death. For information from those letters, please contact me.
From the Limerick (Ireland) Chronicle
3 June 1920

A message of sympathy by the Limerick Diocesan Council:

"...the Venerable John Armour Haydn, LL.D, late Archdeacon of Limerick...was a quiet Christian gentleman, who had many great gifts, hardly recognized by the Church on account of his retiring nature. As a preacher he was both thoughtful and learned, and many of us remember with gratitude his thoughtful discourses in the Cathedral, to which he devoted almost infinite pains. He was well known as a skilled musician on many instruments, and a composer of no mean attainments, and at our Cathedral our chants are often sun to his settings. We regret his loss deeply, and tender to his son and daughter our most sincere sympathy in their sad bereavement."
