Coppinger (Barryscourt)

At the time of Griffith's Valuation members of this county Cork family held land, particularly in the barony of Barrymore. The Coppingers were descended from Stephen Coppinger, Mayor of Cork, who died in 1600. In 1777 William Coppinger of Ballyvolan and Barryscourt, county Cork married his cousin Jane, sister and heiress of Donat McMahon of Clenagh, parish of Kilmaleery, barony of Bunratty Lower, county Clare and had two sons and two daughters. Thomas Henry Coppinger was also a member of this family. In the 1850s their eldest son, William Coppinger of Barryscourt, county Cork and Ballylean, county Clare, held six townlands in the parish of Killadysert, one townland in the parish of Kilfiddane, barony of Clonderalaw, county Clare and four townlands in the parish of Carrigtohill and a townland in the parishes of Caherlag, barony of Barrymore and St Annes Shandon, barony of Cork, county Cork. Over 6,800 acres in the baronies of Clonderalaw and Islands, county Clare, were advertised for sale in April 1853. The Coppingers also held some property in the Cashel locality, county Tipperary. William Coppinger died unmarried in 1862 and all his estates passed to his nephew, Morgan John O’Connell, son of Elizabeth Coppinger and John O’Connell of Grenagh, county Kerry, a brother of Daniel O’Connell of Derrynane. The Coppingers of Rossmore were a junior branch of the Barryscourt family.
