Hugh Brady of Kilcooney, Clonrush, county Galway and of Limerick was the eldest son of Henry Brady and Mary Molony and a brother of William Brady of Williamstadt. He married Elizabeth Beauchamp. Gerard Madden writes that their son Henry Brady of Limerick was an extensive brewer and miller. In 1810 Henry Brady's daughter Jane married John Falkner Cornwall of Myshall Lodge, county Carlow. She died the following year without having any children and Madden writes that her brother John Beauchamp Brady inherited Myshall Lodge. In 1842 John Beauchamp Brady purchased part of the Clive estate in county Clare. At the time of Griffith's Valuation he is recorded as holding land in the parishes of Feakle, Tulla Upper and Kilchreest and Killadysert, Clonderalaw. His eldest son John Cornwall Brady owned 1,598 acres in county Clare, 1,198 acres in county Carlow and 207 acres in Queen's county [county Laois] in the 1870s.
