DSCF1154

Notes: The following is an extract from the Lisburn Standard dated Friday, January 18, 1924.

Lisburn Cathedral and its past rectors by the Dean of Down.
The Rev. Thomas Higginson.

The Rev. Dobbs was succeeded by the Rev. Thomas Higginson, who was born in County Wexford, son of Thomas Higginson in 1722. He entered T.C.D. 27th January, 1739 aged 17, and got scholarship in 1743. He became Rector of Lisburn in 1775; he was also Vicar of Ballinderry.
He married Anne Moore, and had issue

  1. Thomas Edward, born 1767. He was also in Holy Orders, and was rector of Lisburn in 1775; he was also Vicar of Ballinderry. He died 22nd June, 1819. He is buried in the graveyard of the Middle Church, Ballinderry, where there is a gravestone with this inscription …
  2. Eliza – married Henry Marmion of Lambeg; and secondly Roger Casement of Ballee.
  3. Maria – married John Johnston of Dublin.
  4. Letitia – married Captain Graydon

The house in which the Rev. Thomas Higginson resided at Ballinderry is marked "Woodbrook" in Taylor and Skinner’s Road Map of Ireland. The Rev. Thomas Higginson must have resigned the living of Lisburn long before he died, as his successor was appointed in 1781.
He also is buried in the graveyard of the Middle Church, Ballinderry.

The Rev. Thomas Higginson also finds a place in John Wesley’s Journal, Vol 111., page 364 (Everyman’s Library). He came to Lisburn from Carrickfergus and was "agreeably surprised by a visit from Mr. Higginson, Rector of Ballinderry." This was Saturday, 8th April, 1769. The only part of the conversation Wesley writes in his journal is a story told him by the Rector rather discreditable to the Moravians. Let us practise the charity that imputeth no evil and believe that the good man did not write down that story because he previously had a very serious quarrel with that body. I believe Dr. Higginson’s father, or brother, had been agent to the Hertford Estate; but I have not definite information.

The only interesting items in the Vestry Book for this period refer to the lighting of the town, which was then the work of the Cathedral Vestry; also the repair of the "Cupola" – tisi, of course, before the present graceful spire was built – at a cost of £18. The Churchwardens had not at that time control of the sittings in Church, for the seat No. 12 on the north side, below the pulpit, one-third of which belonged to Mary Keenan, was sold to Wm. Coulson for three guineas – one to be paid to the Churchwardens, and two to Mary Keenan. But there is a further note that she withheld her consent, and Wm. Coulson had to look for a seat elsewhere.
