Piperstown House, Drogheda

– history now online –

Posted 25 Jun 2017, 00:11

Henry St George Smith (1813-1899), High Sheriff of Louth, built Piperstown House, Drogheda in 1842 (52 rooms – one for every week). Generations of the family occupied the house for 150 years. Brian and Jean Smith still live on the 365 acre estate (an acre for every day of the year), with their family, Paul, Robert and Victoria, where they run Piperstown Equestrian Centre: an impressive indoor and outdoor riding school, livery and cross country course.

These historical documents were compiled and typed by Brian’s mother, Jennifer Ann Smith (1935-2007) and gifted to Brian so that future generations of the family would have a better understanding of their fascinating history and ancestors.

The documents have now been made available online, for members of the public who may also be interested in this extensive catalogue of family history – see St. George Smith Piperstown History. Included are a family tree and genealogy, photos and facsimiles.

In addition, "extensive reels of 8mm and 16mm film footage (home movies) of the St George Smith family at home at Piperstown over the years, have been archived and stored safely at Piperstown by Brian Smith, which is currently being converted to digital format and will be uploaded upon completion."
