Blake (Rathville)

John H. Blake was occupying the Rathville estate in the parish of Kilimordaly at the time of Griffith's Valuation. He was the uncle of John A. Daly (previously Blake) who had inherited the Raford estate and for whom he acted as agent. In the 1870s John H. Blake was recorded as the owner of over 2000 acres in county Galway. He later acted as agent for the Clanricarde estate and was assassinated near Loughrea in June 1882. His family continued to reside at Rathville until 1917.
