In 1803, the family is living in Aardeven (also Ardavon, Ardavan, Ardeven), located on Orwell Road(previously Windmill Road), Rathgar in the townland of Rathfarnham. Joseph and Agnes had a number of children – Anne Jane(1833-1892), Margaret Hanly(1836–1899), Alice Mary Hanly(1839–1900), John Philip Hanly(1842–1925), Agnes Hanly(1843–1884) and Cornelius Hanly(1847–1910).

The first mentions of the family occur about 1893-1894 onwards with Cornelius selling a mare, looking for a boy “15 or 16, not older” to deliver milk and  a “Boy wanted to milk, serve and make himself generally useful”. It is clear that Cornelius is a “dairy man”.

A newspaper article in the Evening Herald on 20th February 1900, we read a death in the Hanly family at Camac place. “February 19 – At 8 Camac place, Crumlin road, Leontine (Tina), the dearly-beloved and youngest daughter of Con and Leontine Hanly.” She died of phthisis (tuberculosis). Leontine had been born in 17th January 1883 to Cornelius and Leotime Jossett in Glebe House, Crumlin-

In 1901, the family is seen in the 1901 census at “house 15 in Dolphins Barn”. In 14th December 1901, Cornelius Hanly, 8 Camac Place, was in Court for allegedly removed 13% of fats from milk he was selling. In October 16 1909, there are a few adverts on the sale of diary equipment from C Hanly due to retirement at 8 Camac place.
