Henry Corr held land from the Goffs at Derrane, parish of Kilbride, barony of Ballintober South, county Roscommon in the first half of the 19th century. In the 1850s he also held Cloonyquin, parish of Elphin, barony of Roscommon, presumably from the French family. Luke Corr of Durham is mentioned in newspaper reports of the trial of Owen Beirne for the murder of the Reverend John Lloyd in 1847, see http://www.obeirnefamily.cwc.net/issue4/Owen%20Beirne%202.htm In another source Luke Corr is recorded as owning 1,454 acres in county Galway while George Corr and others owned 1,040 acres in the same county. 235 acres held by Miss Marie Corr at Derham or Durham 'now called Garvoher' was advertised for sale in January 1861 and again in January 1875. The Irish Times of January 1861 reports that one lot was purchased by a Mr. Drought. In the 1870s Miss Maria Corr of Derrane owned 27 acres in county Roscommon. The Sandys family also held some land in Derrane including Durham Lodge. James Sandys of Durham Lodge owned 158 acres in the 1870s.
