8 Black Swan Yard


1878 Home of Timothy Lyons and his wife Elizabeth[Tobin]. This is where their first child, Stephen Lyons, was born 4/8/1878. Would seem to be nearer Our Lady Church in Melior Street than Holy Trinity Dockhead Church: see map of all Lyons homes No baptism found in either. Elizabeth's mother, Margaret Tobin, died here in November 1877, so seemingly the 2 [ that of Timothy Lyons & that of David Tobin] families living together 1877-1878..


Pictures found of road name by googling.

Timothy Lyons, born 1852. He was once again living at 8 Black Swan Yard in 1894.

David Tobin 1827-1880

Black Swan Yard was apparently also where the tannery of Thomas Whichelow was in 1865.[info from Helen Whichelow]: Francis William Lyons, my father, worked in this Tannery, by then in Tanner Street, 1932-1957
