The mother (Eleanor Rounds) of my gggrandfather (Decourcey Rounds Evans) passed away in 1841 at age 29. Buried in Delgany? DeCourcey and his siblings went to live with their grandparents (James Thomas & Elizabeth (Boyle) Evans) until about 1851.Their father James went to find work. I’m interested in the location of the Evans old home which consisted of a Masters house and cottage in the area of east Priory,Delgany. Thank you to anyone that can help me. I had a wonderful visit in June but did not have enough time for all my exploring. Sure hope to be better prepared next time!  Ann

  • Hi Ann,

    I am a volunteer based in Wicklow, not close to Delgany but if up near that way soon will have a look . Searching for you now. Have posted an enquiry about the location of the Evans house in a Delgany Facebook forum- someone might know ! 

    Also you are probably aware of connected with the ancestry tree for Elenor Rounds ? 

    I couldn't find any grave memorial for Eleanor in Delgany...will keep looking. 

    On the ancestry tree it states her death and burial is in Delgany , probably the old graveyard. 

    I will keep you posted. 


    The Griffiths valuation is a great tool to find the location but there are a few Evans in Delgany on the list ?

  • Thank you Andrea. I did find a lot of Evans on that site. Many of them are mine! While I was there I was able to visit the old cemetery. Heard a very interesting story about graves and headstones being moved to make way for the new road. Maybe Eleanor’s got moved or she never had one back in 1841. I’m interested in the home of James and Elizabeth Evans because that was where my gggrandfather stayed until he came to America in1851. Thanks for helping me.
