BORN 9 JUNE 1804 – DIED 17 JANUARY 1857
The Family Vault of Alderman Fry Pembroke Place 1857… “Until the day break and the shadows flee away” [Song of Solomon 2:17].
Until today I did not have much luck finding any information relating to Alderman Fry or his family. However, I now know that he was born in Dublin 9 June 1804 and died at 29 Pembroke Place 17 January 1857. His mother was Anna Maria Louisa Dawson Lawrence and his father was Thomas Fry. His wife was Evelina Brassington who was also born in 1804 and she died in 1875.
Many guides describe Mount Jerome as being one of the most interesting 19th-century cemeteries in Europe mainly because of the funerary architecture and statuary.
An alderman is a member of a municipal assembly or council in many jurisdictions founded upon English law. The term may be titular, denoting a high-ranking member of a borough or county council, a council member chosen by the elected members themselves rather than by popular vote, or a council member elected by voters.
