General description

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.

Notes about this person:

The complete guide to find a grave

All the graves of the Non-Catholic Cemetery can be located through the position details that can be read within each single buried person’s page or gravestone’s page itself.

Exact position can be located by 4 simple fields: The Area (Zona), The quarter (Riquadro), The Row (Fila) and The Position (Posizione).


The Areas (Zona)

The Non-Catholic cemetery of Rome is composed by 5 large areas. All areas are bounded by walkable paths, so they are very easy to locate.

ATTENTION: We gently remind to all visitors that the Antica(A) area is a flat and grassy garden, and the graves are scattered in a very informal fashion. Furthermore we suggest you to exclusively refer to the walk’s map and also to the photo of the gravestone to locate the exact position.


The quarter* (Riquadro) *valid only for the Terza Zona (3)

The quarter is strictly related to the Terza Zona of the cemetery.

This area is divided into 4 quadrants numbered as shown in this map.

Only the graves in the Terza Zona will have the quarter indicated in the position information.

The field that represent the quarter will be empty/not visible in each other grave except the graves in the Terza Zona.

Please note that to identify any tomb it is always possible to refer to the walk’s map and to the photo of the grave.





The Row (Fila) 

The graves in the cemetery are mostly laid out in ordered rows.

Only the Zona Antica(A) and the tombs along the walls, for example ossuaries, are an exception.

In order to count the row number it is necessary to recognize the lower part of the cemetery as a reference. The Non-Catholic cemetery in fact extends over a slight slope (except for the Zona Antica which is flat but does not have rows).

The first row will always be the one at the lowest level compared to the others.

Once the first row is identified it will be easy to count all the others rows.



The Position (Posizione)

It is used to locate the grave within the reference row.

The position can be identified by counting the graves from left to right.

The count must be made always starting from the left end of the area where the tomb is located.
