Can you help?
- Can anyone provide earlier or better drawings or photographs of any of the houses discussed in this article? I am particularly anxious to obtain a view of Newcastle House, Oldcastle (which needs to be carefully distinguished from the houses of the same name near Kells and Enfield in Co. Meath, as well as those elsewhere in Ireland!)
- Can anyone provide fuller information about the ownership of Bobsville, Lakefield House or Newcastle House since they were sold by the Battersby family?
- I should be most grateful if anyone can provide photographs or portraits of people whose names appear in bold above, and who are not already illustrated.
- As usual with Irish families, the very limited online availability of parish registers and the poor survival of many other records means the genealogical details above are thinner and less reliable than I would like. If anyone can offer further information or corrections I should be most grateful. I am always particularly pleased to hear from descendants of the family who can supply information from their own research or personal knowledge for inclusion.
