Note:

Michael Byrne was the licensee of the Joiner's Arms and a stock owner in the Argyle and Burragorang districts. He had built an elegant two storey sandstone house, later known as Glenalvon, in Lithgow Street where he lived with his wife, Jane, nee Warby and their six children. His brother-in-law, John Keighran, foreclosed on the mortgage over Glenalvon, obtaining possession of the house in 1844. In October 1844 when Michael Byrne sought voluntary insolvency his debts amounted to 1886 pounds and his assets to less than 100 pounds. Byrne's largest creditor was his mother, to who he owed 1140 pounds from the sale of cattle three years earlier. His farming equipment was sold to pay his servants' wages but his other creditors received little. Michael's brother, Charles Byrne, with his wife, Elizabeth, had built a single storey stone cottage, later called Richmond Villa, in Lithgow Street, Campbelltown. In 1840 Charles Byrne mortgaged this cottage to John Vardy for 1000 pounds. Unable to repay the loan, he forfeited the house to Vardy who in turn sold it for 520 pounds to John Keighran in 1847.

Michael Byrne continued to run the Joiner's Arms. An 1840 map marked Byrne's inn on the western side of Queen street at the southern end of town. Another map drawn about 1842 showed the Joiner's Arms on the corner of the Old Menangle Road and the Narellan Road. Emily cottage may have been one of the outbuildings on the 10 acres (4ha) around the inn. The Joiner's Arms had four bedrooms, two parlours, detached laundry and kitchen and a taproom with four tables, eight chairs, a bench and a bird cage.

DIED. At his residence, Airds, on the 18th instant, after a short but painful illness, which he bore with exemplary piety and fortitude, Hugh Byrne, Esq., in the 78th year of his age. It was truly edifying to the Christian who contemplated the dying scene of this venerable man, surrounded by moral sons and virtuous daughters, and their progeny, joining in prayer to the author of all good for a peaceful re- ception of his immortal soul into the mansions of eternal bliss.
