The SPROTT FAMILY
of Aughnaskeach and Enoch
"Yet a little while"
Joseph and Henry Sprott
The photo is of the Sprott headstone in the GARVAGHY Church graveyard. It is at the Garvaghy Church of Ireland and is situated near to the town DROMARA, County Down, Northern Ireland. The grave yard is the last resting place of our Sprott family in Ireland up until around 1900. There was no headstone, so around 1910 Joseph and Henry Sprott had this stone erected. Aughnaskeach was the area of the Sprott farms until Robert,s brother Henry moved to farm at Enoch from where the four brother immigrated from to New Zealand.
