I am seeking some information on my family history from Islington, London and hope some Boyletoday.com viewers can assist.
It is possible that William STYLES 1792 -1874 with Robert MENZIES 1817- 1892 who were quality builders and carpenters I believe contracted in the construction of Rockingham House, one of the legends was the construction of a grand staircase.
Both went with their family and had children born in Ireland. I believe William’s brother John Styles daughters Mary Ann STYLES was born in Ireland 1815 – 1860 and later married Robert MENZIES. Robert MENZIES had 2 children born there. Mary Ann 1837 and William born 1838.
What I am looking for are records, but in the 50’s Rockingham House was destroyed by fire.
I am wondering if there is local or family history group can give me a lead. Does a Rockingham Estate in Roscommon still exist?
