White (Nantinan)

Lieutenant John White of Belmont, Castle Connell and Nantenan, county Limerick, was a younger son of Jasper White and Helen Creagh. According to Caleb Powell John White made a fortune in Jamaica as a sugar planter, returning to Ireland in the 1830s. At the time of Griffith's Valuation he held land in parishes of Caherconlish, barony of Clanwilliam, Ballingarry and Kilmeedy, barony of Connello Upper and Dromin, barony of Coshma, county Limerick. The Nantinan estate of the Royse family was advertised for sale in 1853 and the house and 145 acres were purchased by John White for £3,800. In May 1862 523 acres at Drumsallagh, county Clare, leased by John White of Belmont to Edward Bernard in 1853 were advertised for sale in the Landed Estates' Court, with some Limerick city property. In the 1870s his son John Patrick White of Nantenan owned 2,447 acres in county Limerick. John P. White and his wife Emily MacMahon of Stonehall, county Clare, had seven children. When their grandson John Joseph White died in 1940 the estate passed to a cousin, Martin William Helenus White.
