Parker (Passage West)

The Parker family were resident at Passage West from the early eighteenth century and were prominent in the life of the city, including Harding Parker who was Mayor of Cork. In 1875, Hanna Maria Parker, executrix of Richard Neville Parker, offered for sale the demense lands and Mansion House of Waterview, Passage West, in the barony of Kerrycurrihy, county Cork. The sale notice indicates the property was held by fee farm grant from members of the de Vesci family.
