Landed Estates
NUI Galway


McTernan states that the Flemings came into possession of lands in Sligo in the wake of the Cromwellian settlement of the mid-seventeenth century. They held lands at various locations in the baronies of Leyny and Corran and intermarried with other Sligo families including the Knotts of Battlefield, the Jones of Ardnaglass as well as the Phibbs and the Ormes. The Irish Times reported in June 1864 that over 110 acres, the property of Anne Fleming at Wardfield, had been purchased by Mr. R.J. Gore for £850. In 1874 almost 250 acres, originally held on lease from Phillip Ormsby to Matthew Fleming, was offered for sale in the Landed Estates Court by Harriett Knight Corkran.
