 YOUNG Robert Cargins 1663

Most of the houses in those days didn't bother with fireplaces.  A fire was lit in the middle of the floor and there was a hole in the roof and a door left wide open to let the smoke escape.  This was an old Celtic custom.  It led to blindness and to chest problems to name a couple of ailments.  We know that only Doctor Thomas Bruce, Rector of the Parish of Taughboyne and Mr Mathew Lindsay of Maymore were the only two people in the St Johnston and Carrigans area in 1665 to have more than one fireplace.  They had two each.

Even at the start of the 1800's, delph and china were rarities.  Houses were plain and had barely any furniture.  They used noggins and piggins as vessels.  These were crude vessels made of wood.
