Description: The first Erindale Estate was situated in Springfield-on-the-Credit, and was the residence of the Rev. James W. Magrath who emigrated from Ireland in 1827 with his family and became the first clergyman of St. Peterís Church, Erindale. The property on which the house stood was 700 acres. In 1861 this house was burned to the ground and the family, in the meantime, moved into Mr. Taylorís hotel in the village for a month, and then to a cottage at the foot of the Long Avenue while the second Erindale was being built. This photo of a black and white drawing is from the Harold Hare Collection.
