  • b 15 Dec 1784 parents Francis Evans & Alicia Ogle. He was located at Mountjoy Square in Dublin and married to Hannah Anne Gardiner. He also married 1st Harriet Locke of Walthamstow, Essex, Eng who d. 1821. SOURCE: Email Oct 31, 2011 Jan Waugh.
  • (Estate) Evans (Belgarrow) - In the early 18th century the Evans family settled in Ballinrobe, barony of Kilmaine, county Mayo, but by the middle of the century had moved to Dublin. In the 19th century the main branch of the family was established at Rockfield, county Westmeath. In the 1830s the Evans' county Mayo estate was mainly in the parish of Killasser, barony of Gallen and may have come into the possession of the family following the marriage of Francis Evans with a daughter of John Gardiner of Farmhill, barony of Tirawley. The house Dove Hall, also known as Belgarriff House, was situated on their estate and was leased to a Mr Strogen in the early 19th century. A new house was built in the early 1870s before the sale of the Evans' estates in counties Westmeath, Monaghan and Mayo. Standish O'Grady McDermott of Cloongee, parish of Templemore, barony of Gallen was agent to his father in law John Ogle Evans. http://www.landedestates.ie/LandedEstates/jsp/search.jsp?q=gardiner
