Picture Of old home in Ireland and Plaque at the John Fleming Wakefield family site

At this site http://www.johnflemingwakefield.com/ and click on Ireland home and look at the plaque in front of the house. Does any member of this branch of the family or anyone else know if the plaque is really there and why the sign conflicts with the story of Dr. Albert Wakefield and his grant of land for dressing the Kings wounds clear in 1691? The contact does not work at the site to ask any questions! And the Nebeker's visited there but no new info? And where is the plaque in front of the house in their pictures and why add the pages from the Wakefield Memorial with no new info that contradicts it? The plaque reads Home of Robert Wakefield born 1670 Physician to the King, Aughrim, Galway, Ireland. So does this follow most histories that list birthplaces-Robert was born where? And for that matter where was Albert born? Did John Wakefield lose his land when he was a Protestant Royalist and member of the 1649 Officers-service ended in 1649-not a member of Cromwell's army. Did he get a grant of land for being loyal to the King? Or like Wakefield Memorial says-it was lost or was it really "moved" by a land grant to John in the Province of Connacht or Connaught? I would appreciate your opinions and if you have looked at early records for UK-Ireland for this family.
