- An estate of more than a 1000 acres in the parish of Meelick, barony of Gallen, county Mayo held in fee by the Bolingbroke family. Part of the estate was sold in the Encumbered Estates' Court in 1851 and 1853. The Freeman's Journal reported on the sale in November 1851 at which the lands were purchased in trust for John Bolingbrooke, one of the owners. The trustee was William Graham. At the time of Griffith's Valuation the estate was in the possession of Frederick Willington, William Graham and Reverend Donnellan Bolingbroke Seymour. Two townlands remained in Bolingbroke possession. The remainder of the estate was acquired by the O'Rourke family who held it until the 1920s when it was divided amongst the tenants.

He was the son of Colonel Eyre Seymour of Lisnacody, Eyrecourt, county Galway and Catherine Bolingbroke of Old Castle, county Mayo. In the early 1850s Reverend D.B.Seymour bought part of the Bolingbroke estate in the parish of Meelick, barony of Gallen, county Mayo. He was the petitioner for the sale of the estate.
