Lynch (Mountbellew)

Richard Marcus Lynch, a younger son of Mark Lynch and his second wife Victoire Cormick, inherited an estate in the parish of Ballynakill, barony of Killian, county Galway, from his father, who was leasing some of the estate from the Bellew family. Richard M. Lynch was a Poor Law Inspector and a Special Commissioner for Income Tax. In the 1870s Richard M. Lynch of London is recorded as owning 513 acres in county Galway. In 1904 when Richard M. Lynch's only child Anna Varenne Foster died, the estate passed to the Wilson Lynch family of Duras and Renmore. Their family and estate papers now in the James Hardiman Library, NUIG, contain some records relating to the estate of Richard M. Lynch.
