This is Lindsayville Row, a group of listed cottages named after the Lindsay family who lived in the manor house in the nearby Loughry Estate in the townland of Desertcreat to the south of Cookstown Co Tyrone. A frequent visitor to the Lindsays of Loughry in the early 1700’s was Dean Jonathan Swift the writer who’s most famous work was “Gulliver’s Travels”
Lovely picture my ancestors lived in these cottages my father was born there in 1923
We visited these cottages in 2003, and met Mrs Sproule, who lived in the cottage second or third from the far end.. My great-great-grandfather, James Ferguson was the Head Coachman at Loughry Estate when it was owned by the Lindesay Family, and he and his family would have lived in one of these cottages. Three of his daughters came to Australia in 1879.
Hi Sandra That is very interesting and delighted that my photo evoked family memories.
