Nugent

In April 1678 Richard Nugent Earl of Westmeath was granted an estate of over 11,000 acres in the baronies of Longford and Ballynahinch, county Galway and Ballintober, county Roscommon. In 1680 he sold his lands in the barony of Ballynahinch to Henry Blake. George Thomas John Nugent, 8th Earl was created Marquess of Westmeath in 1822. When he died in 1871, without male heirs, the earldom passed to his cousin Lord Riverston of Pallas.
