Echlin

The Echlin family held land in the Tuam/Dunmore area of county Galway in the early 18th century. Melvin writes that they acquired part of the former Lally estate of Tullinadaly from Baldwin Crowe in 1728. Sir Henry Echlin baronet died in 1725 and was succeeded by his grandson Robert Echlin 2nd baronet. A member of the Echlin family was Dean of Tuam. Elizabeth Echlin daughter of the 2nd baronet married Francis Palmer of Castlelacken, county Mayo, and much of the Echlin property passed to or was bought by the Palmers, including Kenure Park in Dublin. http://www.askaboutireland.ie/show_narrative_page.do?page_id=1342
