Nolan/ Ferrall (Lugboy)

An estate comprised of nine townlands amounting to almost 1400 acres in the parish of Annagh, barony of Costello, county Mayo, and almost a thousand acres in the parish of Killasser, barony of Gallen, owned by the Nolan family. Their estate was advertised for sale in the Encumbered Estates' Court on 7 Oct 1851, adjourned to 6 July 1852 (parish of Annagh) and on 27 Apr 1852 (parish of Killasser). It was all bought by John Nolan Ferrall, a nephew of the former proprietor. John Nolan Ferrall also acquired other lands, including part of the Ferrall estate in county Roscommon and the estate of Lord Oranmore and Browne in the parish of Knock. In 1864 and 1867 he was selling the lands of Casheltauna, parish of Kilbride, barony of Ballintober South, county Roscommon and in 1866 he advertised the sale of 3606 acres of his estate in the barony of Gallen, county Mayo. In February 1867 portions of this property were bought by D. Keane and William Maude of Swinford but the sale of other parts was adjourned. In 1875 over 170 acres of his land in the barony of Kilmaine was sold in the Landed Estates Court. It was purchased in trust by Edward D'Alton. In 1876 Nolan Ferrall owned 9731 acres in county Mayo. The representatives of D.H. Farrell of Logboy, Ballyhaunis, also owned 869 acres in county Roscommon. Ó Muraíle writes that the Nolan Ferralls left Lugboy to live in Dublin following the shooting of an estate bailiff in 1881. The Congested Districts' Board took over the estate in May 1906.
