Young (Doohulla)

Tim Robinson writes that John K. Boswell sold his estate at Doohulla, parish of Ballindoon, barony of Ballynahinch, county Galway, to W. Young in the 1860s. In the 1870s William Young of Brockley Park, Stradbally, county Laois and Doohulla Lodge, Clifden, county Galway, owned 1888 acres in county Galway and 821 acres in county Laois. The Youngs were a Scottish family who settled in county Antrim in the 17th century and moved to county Laois in the early 19th century.
