Synnot, Anne Elizabeth
Anne Elizabeth Synnot was born in Ballymore, County Armagh, Ireland. She is the daughter of Sir Walter Synnot, also buried in the non-Catholic cemetery, and Lady Anne Elizabeth Martin.
Anne Elizabeth was known as Anny, at least by her aunt Selina Martin, who wrote at length about ‘Anny’ in her 1831 book Narrative of A Three Years’ Residence in Italy, 1819-1822 (2 ed).
When Anny was dying, she spoke of the pleasant days which she had passed at her brother’s house at Ballymore when dear little Walter was with her, as the happiest of her life.
Her brother would have been Marcus, Sir Walter’s eldest son and heir; ‘dear little Walter’ was probably Marcus’s son (born 1807 at Ballymoyer) with his first wife Martha – or he could have been Walter, born 1807, son of of Sir Walter’s second son Captain Walter Synnot.
Anne Elizabeth died 5 Jan 1821 aged 13 years and 8 months, according to the inscription on her tomb. A picture of her tomb is on the frontispiece of Selina Martin’s book. Her father, Sir Walter, died in August 1921, and was buried beside Anny. An account of the events of that time are in Sir Walter’s narrative.
