The history of this part of Comber is closely linked to that of Ireland through the Pirrie and Andrews families. The Pirries and Andrews families have farmed the land in the area since the mind 19th Century, beginning with Agnes Pirrie and her husband John Miller who owned Comber distillery. The land was then passed on to Agnes' niece Eliza who was married to Thomas Andrews of Ardara. Eliza's brother William James Pirrie was Chairman of Harland and Wolff, becoming Viscount Pirrie in 1906.
Pirrie was the visionary who enabled the creation of the Olympic Class passenger liners, the Olympic, Titanic, and Britannic. Eliza's son Thomas Junior was the chief architect of the Titanic and went down with the ship in 1912. The Pirrie family name has almost disappeared from the Comber area, but their connection with the Andrews family lives on.
