Drought

In the mid 19th century Captain George Warburton Drought owned a small estate centred on the house Cargins Park in the parish of Ogulla, barony and county of Roscommon, bought from the Kellys of Cargins. He was a member of the Drought family of Glencarrig, county Wicklow. In the 1870s the Drought estate amounted to 788 acres in the county. Over 550 acres of the estate were purchased by the Congested Districts' Board in January 1914.
