Penrose/Penrose Welsted (Shandangan)
- The Penroses were a Cornish family who settled in county Waterford in the 17th century. In 1775 Samuel Penrose married Mary daughter of George Randall of Barnhill, county Cork and his wife a daughter of Abraham Devonsher of Kilshanick. Their son Samuel Penrose of Shandangan was born in 1776 and at the time of Griffith's Valuation held an estate in the parishes of Aglish and Cannaway, barony of East Muskerry, county Cork. His son, also named Samuel, married in 1827 Sarah daughter of John Welsted of Ballywalter, county Cork. Their son the Reverend Samuel Penrose Welsted eventually succeeded to the Shandangan and Ballywalter properties. In November 1864 the lands of Shandangan, the estate of Samuel Penrose, were advertised for sale. In the 1870s the Reverend S. Penrose of Kinsale owned 701 acres in county Cork.
- Thomas Welstead and his wife Mary were granted 2,264 acres in the barony of Corkaguinny, county Kerry and 1,726 acres in the barony of Fermoy, county Cork, by patent dated 1667. At the time of Griffith's Valuation Richard Welstead held an estate located in the parishes of Templeroan and Wallstown, barony of Fermoy, county Cork. His estate amounted to over a thousand acres in the 1870s. Richard died in 1896 and was succeeded by his nephew the Reverend Samuel Penrose Welstead.
