Maud Vickery (1896-1995) her parents ran the hotel.  Other members of the Vickery ‘clan’ also went to Wesley College, Percy Vickery (circa 1904-1909) and his brother George Vickery (a bit earlier). But not his sisters – Maud was a pioneer. In later life Maud was the family genealogist.  The Vickerys were in the Rooska area probably well before 1700 from looking at old family settlements, they were in the category of large tenant farmers on the White/Lord Bantry Estate.

She lost two of her brothers in WW1.

Esther Mary Warner (1896-1968), she lost two of her brothers in WW1.  The family ran a general merchant store.  Over the store Mr. Bird was a  Land Agent, Timothy Cadogan was convicted of his murder in 1900.   The Cork Musgrave family (Supervalu) is descended from the Warners on the female line.  There is a probate reference to a Warner in Kilcrohane in the early 17th century, perhaps they were involved in the early fishery.

The Vickery and Warner family were Methodist, at one time a small Methodist Church operated at the Warner house at Reendonegan. The were interrelated and also to some extent to the Sullivans/O’Sullivan Hurrig family of Tedagh.
