Looks a bit like Poker Byrnes' house next to St. Peter's Graveyard?

Wherever it is / was, it looks like a fine house for its day.

I'm fairly sure that is 71 Burren road (what I knew as O'Hare's house) up behind St Marks school ?

Image
that's from google maps, and although the wrong angle (the other side is covered in Tree's) it looks fairly close size wise and the hill is there behind it.

Downstairs looks very more or less the same as the house featured in the old photo ......but upstairs seems to be a little different. I suppose we have to allow for alterations over the years.

It does look very similar to the first house, great piece of investigation work Brian, you are in the wrong game..

Both are lovely looking and mighty fine places of residences..

I grew up in that house!! It was called Bay View Lodge! A family called Thompsons lived in it before us and i think Malcolmsons lived in it before that. Way Way before my time.....

I think that before that, a gentleman by the name of Colonel Smith resided in that house. He had a family of all daughters, I think, and apparently they would all cycle in the 'Point together, with the Colonel leading them. It must have been in the early part of the 19th century, as some local wit was heard to say it was like a scene from 'The White Oaks of Jalna.'
Great picture. :dance3: :travolta: :clapping:

I have a Robert hatch 1806 married a a Mary anne Thompson 1807 daughter of James thompson and possibly a Sophia Yeats not sure of latter however and in1828 he married Maryann

I have just found articals on Robert hartchs property in warrenpoint sold in 1832 My aunt found record he sold his property to a Malcolmsons and co in 1830s wonder if it is the same house. Evidently he was a baker and hd a bakers shop

We have been looking for this family for twenty years we know his parents were William Hatch and Jane Heenan probably born about 1780s and Robert hatch came to Australia in 1832 live din Tasmania and managed w ebelieve a hotel there (strange place to go to given it was a convict settlement)

Robert hatch 1806 made his money from the gold field and was a superintendan ofolice and established a large estate in NSW he is my ggg grandfather

hope someone acan help use find this family I have loads of information on this family now with over 5000 connected family members

Looking forward to hearing from you

Jeanne
