Browne (Brownesgrove)

Thomas Browne, a younger son of the Brownes of Tuam, county Galway, was a wealthy agent and merchant. In the early 1850s he bought the estate of Joycegrove in the Encumbered Estates' Court from Thomas Reilly assignee of Henry Joyce and renamed it Brownesgrove. He is recorded in Griffith's Valuation as owning 2 townlands in the parish of Tuam. The representatives of Thomas Browne of Brownesgrove are recorded as owning 2,259 acres in the early 1870s. A modern looking house is now located at Brownesgrove with all the old farm buildings behind.
