: Despard of Donore photograph album
« Reply #1 on: Thursday 21 January 16 18:04 GMT (UK) »
I have a large album of 185 photographs that relate to the Depards of Dromore, Queens County, the date I think is late Victorian. There are many family groups, pets, even a pet owl, harvesting, trains, one called Saint Patrick with the number 303, house interiors, houses, farm workers, hunting, carriages and two of an early car.

The Despards look to be a fun loving family.

There are also two carte de visite pictures of two males, both taken in Dublin. One has a contemporary inscription on the back, 'With compliments from the original'.  Not a lot of help to those who did not know him personally!!

Unfortunately most of the photos are without descriptions, but a later hand has written some which I list below I've given brief explanations as to what the pics refer to in brackets:

Pop Despard of Donore.
Mary Despard.
Queens County Hounds. (hounds and three horsemen)
Ernest Despard.
W Despond. (female)
Second cousin Mary (could be Margaret) Elizabeth.
Harry Franks Westfield.
Donore, early days. (against a picture of what must be Donore house)
Mary Despard.
Wellesley Despard.
Captain Boxer.
Wellesley Despard?
Kilcaanly (poor handwriting, above a pic of a large house)
Pop's horses, Donore.

There is one of a smart lady in a gig in a town/village, behind her is a premise called Moyles Warehouse.

I know nothing about the family but I am happy to scan any pictures that may be of interest.

Hi, just discovered your post. I am researching all the Despards in Ireland (including my own family) in Ireland. Have you scanned any pics yet?
Where did you find the album and do you have any other info on the Despard family?
I can probably put some of the names to the pics you have. Perhaps the "Kilcaanly (poor handwriting, above a pic of a large house)" is Killaghy Castle, Tipperary, Ireland, which was a Despard built house.
Thanks
John

This sounds fascinating! William Wellesley Despard was my great great great grandfather and I would be so grateful to have copies of these pictures. Thank you so much -- Michael
