My ancestors - Blennerhassett - Contents

Bridewell St, Tarbert, Co.Kerry

Blennerhassett Lindsay had a property on Bridewell St, Tarbert, Co.Kerry.
See Instructions for lease, 15 Oct 1862.
Note shows that as of 1862 Blennerhassett Lindsay did not live in this property. (Though he may be moving in.)
See draft of lease 1862-63.
He died 1864, without this lease being finalised.
See [Draft lease, Apr 1868] of the property to his widow Anne Lindsay.
See also [Draft lease, Aug 1868].
She died 1871.

Map of Blennerhassett Lindsay property (2 houses and gardens) in Tarbert town in Instructions for lease, 15 Oct 1862.
There are 2 houses, with total frontage 45 feet.
The property is bounded on the N by Bridewell St and bounded on the S by the market wall.
Rotated so N is up.
See full size and original.

Map of the property in [Draft lease, Apr 1868].

Map of around 1851 showing the houses on Bridewell St that are bounded on the S by the market wall.
The market is the big open area to the S.
Map from [Griffiths Valuation].

This section of Bridewell St on [Griffiths Valuation, 1851].
Note of 1862 says that Thomas O'Donnell is to the W side of the Lindsay property.
So Lindsay property looks like plots 20 and 21.
The question is whether this corresponds exactly to the map above (which shows signs of re-numbering).

Extract from 1868 map made for Robert Leslie.

Red cross shows approximate location of the Lindsay property (plots 20 and 21) on 1887 to 1913 map.
This identification needs more work.

Plot 27, Bridewell St

Mrs. Leslie of Tarbert House thought the building with the brown door here on Bridewell St, Tarbert, was a Lindsay house.

See street view.

The building with the brown door (red cross) on modern map.

The building with the brown door (red cross) on 1887 to 1913 map.

In [Griffiths Valuation] it would be building numbered 27.
The entries for Bridewell St in [Griffiths Valuation, 1851] however do not show plot 27.
They show the police station at plot 22 (which matches the 1829 to 1842 map) but then they stop. They do not show plot 27.
