Residence of Thomas and Francis Gubbins

County Cork

Dunkettle House Co. Cork

My wife's grandfather Samuel Hugh Regan at the age of 16 years, appears in the 1911 census as a servant in this house.

The Gubbins family, landed gentry, are from Co. Limerick and bought the Co. Cork estate in Dunkettle in the late 19th century.

Samuel Hugh is a northern protestand from Greyabbey in Co.Down. We have no idea why he should be working as a servant so far from home.

Most of his family were tailors, and some of them were reported to have travelled north from Cork.
