Hi there. I can't thank you enough for sending that photo of the farm building. I assume it was once the house, although the windows are not what they would usually look like. Is it possible this was always an out-building and the original house demolished? Anyway, I have been researching this family for over 20 years, and have been to Ballyboughal, to the church, and seen the Seaver records in the book. But I have never been able to find the farm, and now I have, so thank you so so much!
My problem with my great great grandfather (Patrick Matthew Seqaver who Married Teresa Locke) is that I know his parents were Patt Seaver and Mary Dollard from Australian records. And I was told by a family member that we were connected to the Rogerstown Seavers. But if Mary Dollard was the wife of Patrick Seaver of Rogerstown, then it can't be right because their son, my Patrick Matthew, was born in 1812 and Patrick Snr. died in 1809.
I thought he was born at Rogerstown and from George Seaver's book - The Seavers of Lusk and Rogerstown - I got the info that Patrick Seaver (married to Mary Dollard?) had several children, amongst them Peter Seaver who inherited the Rogerstown estate. I have had great trouble finding records for Peter. But it also said that Patrick Jr, inherited his grandfather's land in Ballyboughal. Can you connect the dots here for me please? I have tried and tried with records, but I can't find anything definitive.e Thank you so much.
