James Cree

Male, CreeID#1549, (18 December 1787 - 15 August 1853)
ChartsLine 7. The Perth glovers line
Chart 1450 Glasgow (2)
James Cree was born on 18 December 1787 in Glasgow, Scotland.1 He was the son of John Cree and Sophia Dougald.2

It has been suggested that James Cree lived at Deebert House, Kilmallock, County Limerick, Ireland, as early as 1807. This is on the basis of an inscription dated 1807 with a thistle and the initials JC above a gateway at the house. However it now seems almost certain that the owner then was a James Creed. It seems that the Creed family were from England and were well established in the area. The use of a thistle is therefore puzzling.3

James Cree joined the Limerick lodge of the Freemasons (Lodge No. 13) on 12 December 1821.4

James Cree married Jane Ievers, daughter of George Ievers and Eleanor Butler, in July 1826 in Ireland.5

His father John Cree died on 19 March 1829 in Glasgow.6

His son George Cree was born on 30 June 1829 in Limerick, Ireland.7,8

A tontine of 1840 gave some genealogical details of James Cree, Jane Ievers and their descendants.9

His daughter Sophia Cree was born in 1845 or 1846.10,11

In 1852 James Cree was living in Distillery Road, Thomond Bridge, Limerick, Ireland.12 C 1853 James Cree was a tenant in Deebert, Kilmallock, County Limerick, Ireland. The property consisted of "House, offices, flour-mill and land" of area 5 acres 1 rood and 5 perches." He was also a tenant of "Offices and land" and a "Plantation and avenue" there and and a house in the town of Bruff, about 10 km north of Kilmallock.13

He also owned nearly 8 acres of land at Glenfield, Kilmallock, County Limerick, Ireland, which he leased to James Ievers Esq., presumably a relation of his wife Jane Ievers.14 C 1853 James Cree was a tenant in Corn Market Row, Limerick, Ireland. The property was a corn store with an annual value of £62. He also had a house, offices and gardens in Brown's Quay.14,15

James Cree died on 15 August 1853 in Thomond Place, Limerick, Ireland.16 He was buried in St Munchins, Limerick, Ireland.17
