Robinson - Post-master

Woodlawn Post Office

Keith Winters

Royal Irish Constabulary

My g-g-grandfather James Robinson was discharged from the Royal Irish Constabulary in 1870.  The births of his children had been registered in Atherny and Monivea, so I expect he settled in the area after retirement.


The earliest reference that I have to him being a postmaster is on the 1884 marriage certificate of his eldest son Alexander, although it doesn’t mention that the post was at Woodlawn.   The first mention of being a postmaster at Woodlawn was in 1888, on the marriage certificate of my g-grandmother Ellen Anne Robinson.  I assume he held that post until his death in 1899, after which his daughter Susan took over.
