    Notes 
    • Alexander inherited the lands of Mohubber, a rent charge of L40 per annum out of Ballyvoneen, in County Tipperary; the lands of Colemine (Coolmine) and spelt Colemeyne in the title deeds, the lands of Ballymena, Co.Antrim, four houses in Ormonde Street, one new and one old house in Bridge Street,one house in Church Street, one house Cuffe Street, one house in Francis Street, and one house situated in Merchant's Quay.

      Alexander was High Sheriff of Dublin, 1783-84. High Sheriff of County Dublin 1798. Whilst High Sheriff for the county he was severely wounded when quelling some riots. At one time he stopped a duel between Fox and Grattan. During the Rebellion in 1798, Mr. Kirkpatrick commanded the Clonsilla Yeomanry; at one time they were quartered near Dunshauglin, County Meath, he and his brother-in-law, Mr. Sutton, drove there from Coolmine, his servant riding his charger; they stopped for a short time at Mr. Nelson's, the clergyman's house, but he urged them to press on to the camp. Mr. Sutton forgot his bag at the Vicarage, and sent the servant riding back for it, when he arrived there, he and the horse were seized by the rebels who had entered the town, and had murdered Mr. Nelson. Some days later the battle of Tara took place, and the Clonsilla Yeomanry were in the engagement. A rebel rode the captive horse, who as soon as he heard the bugle-call of his own corps galloped back to the Yeomanry thus taking the rebel prisoner. Mr. Kirkpatrick at once named him "Loyalty," and never parted with the good horse, which died years afterwards at Coolmine.
    • (Research):In 1798 he built Coolmine House. Some years afterwards he sold the Drumcondra Estate
