John Halahan

(1753 - 8 March 1819)
     John Halahan was born in 1753 in Cork, Ireland. He was described as the son of a country gentleman. The naming pattern suggests he could be the son of Richard & Jane (or Mary). Their children's middle names probably give an indication of family ties. Handy & Wallen were Mary's parents' surnames, so perhaps Parker was John's mother. Armstrong is Mary's grandmother's name. I have not yet found links for Newton, Mahon, Dopping or Holmes. Hickman Rose is the name of Mary's brother-in-law.
The Halahans had property in Ballinbritting townland in the parish of Carrigtwohill/Carrigtohill, Barony of Barrymore, Cork.. He was the son of Patriarch Richard? Halahan.
     John Halahan and Mary Handy obtained a marriage licence on 13 December 1780 in Dublin, Ireland.
     A marriage settlement between John Halahan and Mary Handy was made on 13 December 1780. Indented articles of agreement dated 13 December 1780 made between 1) John Halahan of the city of Dublin, surgeon, 2) Lucy Handy, widow of Samuel Handy deceased & Mary Handy daughter of the Samuel & Lucy, 3) William Speer, of the City, druggist & Thomas Fouace of Tyrrellspass, Westmeath, esq reciting that said Mary Handy was in and by the will of her father the said Samuel Handy entitled to £1000 at 21 or marriage proved if under 21 she married with consent of her mother Lucy Handy & further the will of SH £1000 the interest to be paid to his daughter Lettice during her life & after her decease the £1000 plus the £500 on the decease of Lucy to be divided between his three other daughters, Ann Wade, the said Mary Handy & Jane Handy & reciting that a marriage was shortly to be had between John Halahan and Mary Handy with consent and approbation of Mary's mother he called? the £1500 to provide for Mary Handy after John Halahan's death. Witnessed by Andrew Armstrong, Kings co., Hickman Rose, Dublin city, merchant, William Canaway, Dublin, gent, Jane Handy, Dublin city, spinster.
John Halahan married Mary Handy, daughter of Samuel Handy and Lucy Wallen, on 14 December 1780 in St Bride's, Dublin, Ireland. Marriages: Mr John Hallahan, of Stephen-street, surgeon, to Miss Handy, of Peter-street.. John was a surgeon in Dublin from 1785. He taught anatomy in Dublin with great success. Surgeon of the Foundlings Hospital and to the Dublin General Dispensary, Temple Bar. He was also professor of anatomy to the Hibernian Society of Artists. In 1814 the Society presented him with a piece of plate, with an address and a portrait. His eldest son was surgeon in the Royal Artillery; his second became Inspector-General of Hospitals; the third and fourth were Lieutenants in the army; the fifth was a commander in the Royal Navy; and the sixth was long engaged in medical practice in Dublin.
     Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland - Schools of surgery - John Halahan - Founding Professor of Anatomy & Physiology 1785-1794, 1799-1804; Third Professor of Surgery 1799-1804; Founding Professor of Midwifery 1789-1793.
     He commenced lecturing in anatomy, physiology & bandaging in Nov 1785 at the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland. Held first college chair of Midwifery, founded in 1785 - the first applicant was not accepted until 1789 when John Halahan the Professor of Anatomy & Physiology was appointed until 1793.
     In November 1785 William Dease appointed professor of surgery, and John Halahan professor of anatomy & physiology. The one applicant for the chair of midwifery was not approved, and no appointment was made until some years later. Halahan proposed to give a course of demonstrations in anatomy and physiology, together with the operations of surgery, and bandages. He would fit up a theatre at his own expense, and find every material that might be necessary. Each member of the College could attend the dissecting room at will 'to observe the conduct of his pupils, or renew his ideas in anatomy.' This plan was passed in Jan 1786 and at the same time a proposal from Dease for a course of lectures on surgery was approved. Dease added that he would present his collection of anatomical preparations to the College for the use of Halahan. The offer was accepted and Halahan was instructed to receive such part of the preparations as he might need. The College, in addition, voted that £20 be allowed Halahan, to be used in fitting up his dissecting room. ... The schools were ready for occupation in October 1789. Classes began, with Halahan & Hartigan as joint professors of anatomy and physiology, and Dease in the chair of surgery. The vacant professorship of midwifery was filled by Halahan, and a new chair of surgical pharmacy by Clement Archer... John Halahan, the first professor was appointed in 1785. It will be remembered that he fitted up a dissection room at his own expense, when there was no school building.
In 1775, at the age of 23, his reputation as a private anatomical teacher was established, as we know from a poem called 'The Medical Review', published in that year. The author John Gilborne, writes:
John Hallahan our just Esteem deserves
His curious Art dead Bodies long preserves
Entire and sound, like Monuments of Brass
Embalm'd Aegyptian Mummies they surpass
Surpass the Labours of the famous Ruysch
He does injections to Perfection push.

     Halahan was also professor of anatomy to the Hibernian Society of Artists, the "Academy" of that time, and his portrait by Hamilton, which now hangs in the board-room, was presented to him by the society. It shows him as he stood when lecturing to its members.
     p.43 ...The first chair of midwifery to be founded in Dublin was that in the College Schools. John Halahan, elected in 1789, was its first incumbent. Halahan was already in the chair of anatomy, which he continued to hold. On his appointment as professor of midwifery, he provided at his own expense some necessary equipment, which included "a machine and glass uterus for demonstrating midwifery", for which he was subsequently compensated. This branch of medicine was then looked upon by physicians as a degrading occupation, and it was practised by surgeons, many of whom bore the title "surgeon and man-midwife". To take the College of Physicians Diploma in midwifery prevented the recipient from subsequently proceeding to a degree in medicine. In addition to found a chair, the college conferred a diploma in midwifery, from which they excluded any person already holding the medical licence of the College of Physicians. In 1793 Halahan was released from this chair, the College stating their intention had always been to have separate professors for each, and he was thanked "for the distinguished manner in which he had for 3 seasons delivered courses of lectures in midwifery". It had now become possible "to relieve him by accepting the proposals of another gentlemen", Sir Henry Jebb, surgeon to Queen's Hospital, an original member of the Dublin Society of Surgeons, and of the College..
     John Halahan and John Handy were mentioned in a deed dated 13 December 1785 in Marlborough St, Dublin.

The portrait remained in the family until May 1888 when it was presented to the RCSI..
     John Halahan made a will dated 2 February 1819 in Dublin. John Halahan of York St, Dublin, surgeon, nominated his brother in law John Handy of Aughrim, co. Galway and son Samuel Handy Halahan of Dublin, surgeon as trustees. He mentions his wife Mary Halahan, nee Handy, his seven sons - Samuel Halahan, John, George, Richard, Thomas, Robert and Hickman, and his five daughters - Augusta Fitzsimons nee Halahan, Frances Dunbar nee Halahan, Jane, Dorothea and Lucy. His sons were provided for. The will was witnessed by Sam Litton, Mich Daniel and Jas Carmichael.
     John died on 8 March 1819 in 11 York St, Dublin. Died yesterday, Dr Hallahan of York Street, a very respectable professional gentleman. He was buried on 10 March 1819 in St Paul's, North King St, Dublin. His monumental inscription at St Paul's Dublin shows a Crest, hand grasping a sword. The inscription reads This stone is erected to the memory of John Halahan Esq. to whose exertions and lectures whilst professor the Royal College of Surgeons in this City is indebted for its celebrity throughout Europe. In his own practise he exhibited a rare combination of natural sagacity and consummate dexterity in operation. He was distinguished for his private worth, an affectionate husband and father, a kind relation. Ardent & steady in his friendships, with a heart expanded by universal philanthropy, after a long protracted illness, which he supported with, Christian resignation, he died the 8 day of March 1819 in the 66th year of his age. In the hope of everlasting happiness, through the merits of Our Lord & Saviour.
     His will was proved in 1819 at Dublin. Probate was granted to Samuel Handy Halahan of 9 York St, Dublin due to the sorry plight of Jn Handy. The Irish probate indexes for 1819 show John Halahan, York St, Dublin, also John A Halahan, Private 41st Regt and Leonard Halahan, Tallow, co. Waterford.
"Chapters of Dublin history" website cites Cameron: Crime, parks and royalty: the History Of The Royal College Of Surgeons - I intended to give a short biography of everyone who had been a President, Professor, Curator, or Secretary of the College. To get reliable information relative to those who were connected with the College in the 18th century and beginning of the 19th century was often very difficult. The documents in the Records Office, Four Courts, Parish Registries of births and deaths, old newspapers, &c., had to be examined.
     Surgeon John Halahan, who was a member of the College from its foundation, was appointed its first Professor of Anatomy in the year 1786. In a curious, and now very rare, book, entitled "The March of the Physicians, Surgeons, and Apothecaries of Dublin to the Temple of Fame," written by Dr. John Gilborne, and published in 1775, I found a short poetic description of Halahan:-
"John Halahan our just esteem deserves;
His curious art dead bodies long preserves
Entire and sound like monumental brass,
Embalm'd Aegyptian mummies they surpass
Surpass the labours of the famous Ruysch*
He does injections to perfection push."
[* A famous Dutch anatomist.

     Now, I was anxious to discover a descendant of this man, who was famous in 1775, and was born in 1753; and, adopting my usual practice, I wrote for information to all the Halahans whose names appeared in the directories, hoping that some grandson or great-grandson would answer my letter. I was surprised to receive one from his own son. He proved to be the late Reverend Nicholas Halahan, Rector of St. Luke's Protestant Church, Coombe, Dublin.
     I visited the venerable cleric; and whilst I obtained some information about his father of which I was ignorant, I told him some things concerning the Professor which he had never heard of. He was delighted when I showed him the poetical eulogium on his father.
I noticed the portrait of a man, having one of his hands resting upon a skull, and in an attitude suggestive of giving a lecture or address. I suspected that it was the portrait of Halahan lecturing to the Hibernian Society of Artists, the predecessors of the Royal Hibernian Academicians, and my surmise proved correct. At my request Mr. Halahan promised to bequeath it to the Royal College of Surgeons.
At a proper interval after his death I called to see his granddaughter (who had kept house for him), and to claim the portrait of her great-grandfather. She said that the Rev. Mr Halahan, of Enniskillen, had also claimed it as a family heirloom. I said that was nonsense, it could not be regarded as such.
Then I said to her that if I could get the boy she had referred to at my last visit a situation, would she consent to the picture going to the college. She promptly said she would, and in due time the portrait was placed in the college. When I saw Mr. Halahan he was 87 years old; his father had been born 134 years before that time (1886).
Captain Halahan, lately Adjutant of the 4th Battalion Dublin Fusiliers, is a descendant of Professor Halahan.
