History

D-161
Thomas Byrn House
Vienna
c. 1820
Private

The Thomas Byrn house, also known more recently as the Piercy house or Gibbons house, stands out in Vienna as part of a small collection of early nineteenth century dwellings that constitute the oldest surviving buildings in the river-front town. This two-story, three-bay, single-pile frame structure shares similar features with other houses, such flush gable ends, exterior common bond brick chimneys, and an attached service wing.

The earliest land record associated with this corner lot is a 1793 patent from the State of Maryland to John Maguire. The property was described as being on the northwest side of High Street in the town of Vienna. While a patent record associated with this lot dates to the late eighteenth century, the architectural finishes of this twos-tory, three-bay frame dwelling clearly date to the first quarter of the nineteenth century.
There is a gap in the land record chain of ownership between John Maguire's patent and that of John Ennalls of Baltimore City, who in March 1831, is recorded as the grantor in a deed conveying the property to Thomas Byrn, of Dorchester County, for the sum of $1,100. The significant transfer price indicates that the extant two-story dwelling was standing on the lot at that time. The next land record associated with the house and lot was recorded in April 1857 when William T. Byrn, Thomas's son and a resident of Baltimore City as well, transfers the property to Richard Piercy, who, it is stated in the deed, presently occupied the house. Piercy (also Percy) family ownership lasted through the mid to late nineteenth century with the title passing to William R. Percy. Caroline E.
Percy is recorded in the Dorchester County land records in an 1885 conveyance between herself and Thomas and James A. Higgins. During the second half of the twentieth century the property was the long-time residence of Malcolm Lee and Althea O'Day Gibbons.
