Landed Estates
NUI Galway


The Paget estate was mainly in the parishes of Crossmolina and Kilfian, barony of Tirawley, county Mayo but they also held land in the parish of Kilglass, barony of Tireragh, county Sligo. Quinn writes that they sold some of their estate in 1851. In July 1853 the demesne and lands of Fahy and Ellagh with Glendavoolagh mountain, the estate of Thomas and James Paget, were advertised for sale. Fahy was held from the Earl of Arran. Lands at Kinnard, leased by the Pagets to the Simpson but latterly in the possession of Hannah Dempsey, were offered for sale in the Landed Estates Court in June 1874. In 1876 the Pagets owned 2473 acres in county Mayo and 354 acres in county Sligo.
