Studdert (Dangananella)

This branch of the Studdert family was established at Dangananella, just outside Cooraclare, in the parish of Kilmacduane, barony of Moyarta, county Clare, from the late 18th century. They intermarried with the Moroneys, Cullinans, Coxs and Brews. Members of this family also lived at Doonmore, parish of Killard, barony of Ibrickane and intermarried with the Copland family. Jonas Studdert held lands in the parish of Kilballyowen, barony of Moyarta at the time of Griffith's Valuation. In the 1870s Jonas Studdert of Dangananella and other family members owned about 1,000 acres in county Clare. By 1916 Jonas's son Thomas George Handcock Studdert had agreed to sell 418 acres of tenanted land to the Congested Districts' Board.
