- The representatives of Robert Usher held land in the parishes of Clonoulty and Oughterleague, barony of Kilmanagh Lower, county Tipperary in the mid 19th century. Arthur Usher also held land in the parish of Oughterleague. Robert Usher was the son of Noble Luke Usher of Gurteen, county Tipperary and grandson of an apothecary of Birr. His second wife was Helen Coppinger of Ballyne, county Cork, and it appears to be through this marriage that the Ushers came to hold their estate in the parish of Oughterleague and the Rock Abbey property. By the 1830s Robert Usher was living at Cashel. He died in 1847.
