Edward Bourchier Hartopp of Dalby House, Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire, was the grandson of Edward Hartopp who married Juliana Evans, daughter of George, 3rd Lord Carbery, in 1782. Anthony Malcomson writes in his introduction to the Bisbrooke Papers that following the death of her brother, 4th Baron Carbery, in 1804 Mrs Hartopp inherited the unentailed part of the Irish property of her father. Edward B. Hartopp was one of the principal lessors in the county Kerry parishes of Kilcrohane, barony of Dunkerron South, Kilgarvan, barony of Glanarought and Killaha, barony of Magunihy, at the time of Griffith’s Valuation. He also held land in the county Limerick parishes of Killeenoghty, barony of Pubblebrien, Killeedy, barony of Glenquin, Abington, Caherconlish and Inch St Lawrence, barony of Clanwilliam, Adare, Bruree, Croom, Killeenoghty, Killonahan and Uregare, barony of Coshma. David Roche was his agent circa 1840. In the 1870s his address is given as Leicester ad Bateman notes it as Dalby Hall, Melton Mowbray. He owned over 24,000 acres in county Kerry at that time, together with 4,545 acres in county Limerick and 2,467 acres in county Cork. In 1906 terms had been arranged by the Congested Districts Board for the purchase of over 15,000 acres of the Burns-Hartopp estate in county Kerry. This land was acquired by the Board in 1908.
