Telling the Story of the "Seavers" from Athlone, Co. Westmeath, Ireland

"Hello" to anyone reading this page on the Seaver Family Ireland website, particularly if your name is Seavers or any version of it.

We are a group of the Seavers Clan living in Ireland who are trying to write the history of our family. We are calling it "History of the Athlone Seavers". From the Irish 1901 and 1911 censuses we have been able to trace the family back to the early 1800s, living in Glasson near Athlone, in Co. Westmeath. There are many variations of the name "Seavers" on marriage and baptismal records in Tubberclare Church, (Glasson), and on the census forms, i.e., Seaver, Severs, Sever, Seever, Saver, Siever, etc. etc.

The censuses tell of three brothers and a sister living in Glasson. They were Charles, Richard, George and Anne. The 1910 census in the US gave us a John born in Athlone in 1820, who married Eliza in 1841. They had a son Michael born in Athlone in 1842 before they emigrated to the US. He could be another brother.

My line started with George and most are still living in Ireland. We know that Peter, a son of George, emigrated to the US. He was born in 1865 and married Ellen in 1895 before moving to the US. We know that descendants of Charles and Richard also emigrated. From the 1911 census we have 1 son, James, born to Anne.

If your name is any version of Seavers or you are a descendant of a Seavers we would love to hear from you, particularly if you have any information of the early lives of our ancestors.

We have created a family tree starting with the above named Charles who was born in 1803 and there are over 500 members on it with about 142 still holding the name Seavers or a variation of it. At the moment most of the information we have is names and dates, so we would love to get little bits of info about their lives, lifestyles, achievements, etc. Hopefully someone, somewhere in the world will have a little bit of info that will help us to make up the story of our past.

The Seaver* Clan Reunion 2013
* includes Seavers, Severs etc.
January 2013


Dear fellow-members of the Seaver Clan,

No doubt, you are aware that "The Gathering 2013" is being promoted at present by the Minister of Tourism. The main idea is to get us Irish to celebrate our Irishness by organising meetings and gatherings. We are also being encouraged to invite our friends and relations from abroad to join us in these celebrations.

With this in mind we, the undersigned, have formed an organising committee and propose to invite you to join us for another Seaver Clan Reunion on Sunday, August 25, 2013, 2.00 - 6.00 p.m.. The venue, as in 2007, will be the Carnegie Court Hotel, Swords, Co. Dublin. (info@carnegiecourt.com).

Most people thought the reunions of 2002 and 2007 were enjoyable. This time, we propose to change the format. After the introductions, we're going to hold a 'Seaver Miscellany' type of programme, modelled on the popular radio series 'Sunday Miscellany'. We'll be looking for members of the different Seaver families to volunteer to give short 5 to 7 minute talks on subjects of family interest. (Please contact one of us if you are interested in doing a piece.) In between these talks, we'll have music and song from family musicians. Finger-food will be served later.

There will be a small attendance charge to cover costs: Families: €50.00; Adults: €20.00; Seniors/Students/Unwaged: €15.00. Pay by cheque/P.O. in advance, or pay in cash on the day.
Make cheques and P.O's payable to Mr. Tom Seaver.
Be sure to return the form below to one of the undersigned if you wish to attend the reunion, by Friday, March 28. The hotel needs to know numbers well in advance.

Yours truly,
Tom Seaver, "Rinnaknock", Glenstal, Murroe, Co. Limerick
Peter Seaver, Outrath, Kilkenny
Pat Seaver, 91 Strand Road, Dublin 4
John S. Seaver, 10 Holmpatrick, Skerries, Co. Dublin
