7 the Mall

 Queenstown- Henry & Coghlans Directory 1867        Cotter, Wm., Grocer, 7 Mall  -- My Great Grandfather 

In the early part of the 1800's a family named Simcox owned the building and also kept a Provision and Grocery business. They decided to sell-up the to move to Cork City where they became very successful business people. The Cotters who lived only a stones throw away in Cotterell's Row bought the building and continued the business. They rented out their former home to a tenant who was later unable to pay rent due to poverty. William allowed them to stay and eventually freely relinquished his claim to the house to the joy of the tenant family. Many of the extended Cotter family lived in the adjoining buildings on the Mall as time went on. William bought another shop a few years later, at the holy ground a few hundred yards further along from the Mall an nearer the town centre.

In 1849 Queen Victoria and her husband Albert along with her nephew Edward Prince of Wales visited Cork. They arrived on the stormy night of 2nd August and with pilot Jack Murphy aboard entered the harbour at 10 pm and dropped anchor off Whitegate due to the weather. The bad weather continued for days and Victoria requested the advice of the pilot who said that he could safely bring the ship into port. When he did the queen granted him two requests and his first of his requests was for a lighthouse be placed at the north eastern tip of the Spit bank, where it still stands today. Part of the visit brought the Royals past  the door of 7 the Mall on their way to the military hospital. This event was most certainly witnessed by the Cotters, Turnbulls, Nagles and Gormans and Carrs

 My uncle William Carr (RIP) ran the shop until  2012 - He then retired due to old age.

Jim Herlihy researches the different police agencies who served in Ireland and has a website with his details at:

The Royal Irish Constabulary Index between 1816 and 1922 contains 85,028 members and has 63 with the surname CARR, two of which were born in Co. Cork:-

1. John Carr, born in Co. Cork 1845  and joined the RIC in 1863.
2. Timothy Carr, born in Co. Cork 1886  and joined the RIC in 1905.

The Dublin Metropolitan Police Index between 1836 and 1925 contains 12,566 members and has 15 with the surname CARR, none of which were born in Co. Cork.

It is very hard to find records prior to 1922 in Ireland because they were stored in Dublin (Capital City) at the Central Statistics  government buildings which were burnt down in that year.
