AnecdoteIn 1836 Kirwins Inn Cooma 1836

JAMES KIRWAN is a name indelibly associated with the early history of Manaro. He was married to Elizabeth, a sister of Joseph Ward, who in 1836, being settled at Wambrook, had sent William Glanville to Sydney with a consignment of cattle. Kirwan, having thus heard of Manaro, determined to start business there, though he had never seen the place, and arranged for his supplies to be taken back by Glanville. Within a few months further stores were required. Kirwan, who was in partnership with Ward, wanted his wife to accompany him, but the Ward family objected to Mrs. Kirwan going where no white women were. Upon Kirwan becoming insistent, Ward, who was a passionate man, took up an axe, brought it down upon the wheel of the dray containing the partnership goods, and cutting three spokes out said, "I'll have my half." The wheel was bound up with clothes-line, and Glanville brought the dray along with a composite team of a mare in the shafts, a bull by the name of "Spot," and a bullock called "Tinker" leading. Kirwan, after coming to Manaro, carried on business as a hawker, and made a considerable amount of money. He opened near the junction of the Cooma and Cooma Back Creeks the first place of accommodation the district knew, known far and wide as Kirwan's Inn. A detailed description of this is given in the section, "Early Cooma." Kirwan, by special permission, purchased an area of 160 acres adjoining the boundaries of the village of Cooma. He was in October, 1852, shot by his groom - a man named McSpladden - whilst inquiring into the cause of a quarrel between the latter and a doctor, a guest at the inn. His wife, who was a capable and educated Woman, and looked after his books, predeceased him, dying in October, 1850, at the age of 36. James Kirwan was the lessee of the Cooma Run, of 30,000 acres, the Countegany Run, of 20,000 acres, and acquired from Jeremiah Flinn the Numeralla Run, of 2,140 acres.

Miss Kearns, who afterwards married Mr. James Thompson, of Cobbin Station, Jindabyne, was a niece of Mrs. Kirwan, and came to Cooma to her Aunt. There are now, through the descendants of Joseph Ward end Mrs. Thompson, many in the district who are connected with James Kirwan.
Kirwan's son, James, met an untimely end, being shot in Cooma by Constable Donohue, whilst the latter was acting in the performance of his duty.

Transcribed by Pattrick Mould in 2003, from the book "Back to Cooma' Celebrations" page 80

The James Family acknoweledge the research of Mr Pattrick Mould and offer our thanks to him for providing the above information.1
AnecdoteJames Kirwan was a convict who arrived in the colony aboard the ship "Boyne" on the 28th October 1826.

The ship had sailed from Cork in Ireland on the 29th June 1826, a voyage of 121 days.

James had been charged, tried and convicted of stealing money in the Irish courts and sentenced to 7 years transportation.

On the "Boynes" shipping papers, James is described as having a ruddy complexion, brown hair and grey eyes

His occupation at the time of his conviction was that of a gentleman's servant. On his arrival at Port Jackson he was assigned to Jno. Seary at the Military Garden.
James moved to the Monaro district in 1836 and worked as a hawker. He apparantly did very well in this business because he was able to accumulate a little cash and establish a small inn on the side of Cooma Back Creek. Perkins of Perkins Paper fame states that Kirwan "opened at the Junction of Cooma and Back Creeks , the first place of accomodation in the district which became known as Kirwan's Inn. This building was of rubble stone." The position of the Inn was a good one. The old track from the Sydney Road led along the southern bank of Cooma Creek, between the present gaol and Nijong Oval to Kirwan's Inn. From here the track led out to Coolringdon and Kiandra. ( Old Kiandra Road and the Stock Route). Another track led toward Mittagang, and the third track led to Lambie's administrative centre.
Kirwan's Inn became very popular with the workers on the nearby runs. Everything happened between Kirwan's Inn and the Commissioner's office. It has been said that Lambie's selection of a site for his home and office probably influenced Kirwan in the site chosen for Kirwan's Inn, and eventually the site of the town of Cooma.
In 1845 when Bishop Broughton, Lord Bishop of Australia and India, visited the Monaro, he stated of Kirwan's Inn:- "The Inn at which we concluded our day's Journey is a large well built brick house, furnished with such accomodation as there could have been little expectation of meeting with in this remote situation."
By March 1854 Joseph Ward , who had earlier been in partnership with Kirwan, and whose sister married James Kirwan, took over Kirwan's Inn after James' death.
James was killed after he had gone downstairs to investigate an argument which had developed between his groom, a doctor and another man and a scuffle broke out between James Kirwan and John McSpadden, the groom, and it is said that James Kirwan was accidently shot. John McSpadden maintained that the shooting was an accident and apparantly James Kirwan's wife Elizabeth did not blame him either because in her will she states "I direct that any fair or reasonable claim for wages that may be presented after my death to my Executors by John McSpadden, formerly a servant in the employment of my late husband, shall be by them as promptly liquidated as may be..".At this time Joseph Ward was also the licencee of the Grazier's Inn in Sharp St., Cooma.5,1
