On the 1863 Belden map, Thomas senior has two hundred acres. By 1879, Thomas senior has 
subdivided the lot - 100 acres for himself (and his eldest son) and fifty acres
each for his sons Edward and John. This pioneer farm was on the south side of what is
today the Snake Island Road, across from the Minogue farm.

There are records of the Devereaux ancestors at Notre Dame, St. Mary's at South Gloucester
and St. John's in Enniskerry.
