Scott (Cahiracon)

In 1712 the Earl of Thomond leased Cahercon/Cahiracon, parish of Kilfiddane, and Killadysert, parish of Killadysert, barony of Clonderalaw, county Clare, to Angel Scott in perpetuity. In 1781 Captain James Scott married Anne Bindon. The Scotts continued to reside at Cahiracon until the mid 19th century. At the time of Griffith's Valuation John Bindon Scott, High Sheriff of county Clare 1840, held an estate mainly located in the parishes of Kilchreest, Kilfiddane, Killadysert, Kilmihil and Killard, barony of Clonderalaw, county Clare. He also held land in the parishes of Quin, barony of Bunratty Upper, Abbey, barony of Burren and Rath and Ruan, barony of Inchiquin. Some of his lands in the baronies of Clonderlaw, county Clare, Iraghticonor, county Kerry, and in Limerick City, were sold in the Encumbered Estates Court in November 1851. Lands in the parishes of Rath and Ruan the estate of the Honourable Joseph D. Jackson and John Scott trustees of William Scott were offered for sale in March 1853. In November 1854 over 8,500 acres belonging to John Bindon Scott were advertised for sale in the Encumbered Estates' Court. The sale rentals include lithographs of Cahircon, Knappogue Castle and Quin Abbey. John Bindon Scott of Cahircon and Crevagh married Eliza Creagh of Cahirbane and they had a son James Creagh Richard Scott. The Scotts lived at Creevagh Beg in the parish of Quin in the later part of the 19th century. James C.R. Scott married Mary Ferguson of Dumbarton, Scotland in 1878. In the 1870s John [James?] C. Scott with an address at the Conservative Club, London, owned 6,431 acres in county Clare. The Scotts held about 450 acres at Faha, barony of Owney and Arra, county Tipperary, see sale rental of 23 June 1871.
