Martha, the daughter of William Farrar, was born in Coolfancy in 1801 the fear, hatred and property destruction generated by the 1798 rebellion was still fresh in the minds of everyone. Coollattin House together with many other farmhouses in south Wicklow, had been burned to the ground. In 1826, a year when starvation stalked Coollattin estate, Martha married John Lawrence from Moyne. Together, on a small farm of very marginal and poor land, located in the townland of Slieveroe they reared a family of nine children.
