  • Notes 


    • He married Mary Meyler about 1833.  They had a large family between about 1834 and 1852.
       
      When Robert’s father Michael died in 1832 Robert, as the oldest son, inherited Bunarge.    The Tithe Applotment Books record Robt Sinnott as the occupier of Bonnarge (10 acres) in 1834.  In the 1841 census of Ireland,there were 5 males and 4 females at Bunarge.

      The "Report of Patrick VAUGHAN, practical Instructor in Agriculture to Wexford Union Agricultural Society" which was published in the Wexford Independent on 14 April 1849 noted this information on Robert:
      'Robert SINNOTT, BUNNARGE, holds 10 acres. Had 2 acres of potatoes and no turnips in 1848. Will put down one and a half acres of potatoes and a half acre of mangel wurzel in 1849.'

      In the 1851 census, there were 6 males and 6 females at Bunarge.  It is likely that these were mainly Robert and Mary and their children.  Griffith’s Valuation (1853) lists Robert as the occupier of the Bunarge townland (17 acres).

      Robert was in contact by letter with his siblings overseas.  Letters still exist that were written to Robert by Michael in 1840 and 1860 and by William in 1849 and 1850.

      Robert and Mary’s children were: Mary, Margaret, Catherine, Nicholas Michael (known as Michael), John, Edmund, Ellen, William, Elizabeth (Eliza), Nicholas and Robert.

      Mary, Margaret, John, Ellen and (late in life) Michael then Robert married.
       
      Edmund went to Australia with William,and worked as a gold miner until his death in 1899. Eliza became a nun, known as Sister Mary Francis.  Nicholas trained to be a priest, but died young in Texas, USA.

      In 1864 Robert (senior) was a witness at the marriage of his daughter Margaret to Michael Rossiter of Ballask, Kilmore.  Robert's occupation was given as farmer.

      Robert died at Bunarge in 1884 aged 86.  The informant was his son Michael.
