This is an excerpt from the Chevers of Killyan, Co.Galway family history.
" The Chevers' family were not great travellers, although John Chevers ( who died in 1857) was accustomed every year to take his carriage, pair of horses and his old coachman, with him, for a tour through France, which of course took many months. It was said that, on the return journey, when the bridge of Ballyforan was crossed, (the boundary of Galway), the old driver, John Tierney, always stopped his horses and removed his hat, saying " Thanks be to God, master, we are safe in Galway once more!"
At least it's the same county and about the right time. Good Luck. AW-M
