The Auld House was the home of the prominent Barry family. The founder, Joseph Barry, arrived in 1817 but did not marry and settle until 1825. The next year he bought this home from a schoolmaster; it burned in 1834 but was rebuilt. Thanks in part to his wife, Johanna van Reenen, he went on to build a commercial empire based on sheep and wool but extending into finance.
