In March 1702 Daniel Connor of Bandon Bridge, county Cork, merchant, bought 744 acres at Curryleagh and Polerick, barony of Muskerry, formerly part of the estate of Justin McCarthy and the castle and lands of Mashannaglass, barony of Muskerry, formerly part of the Clancarty estate. His third son, George, settled at Ballybricken and had a son, Daniel who in 1779 married Mary, eldest daughter of Kingsmill Pennefather. At the time of Griffith's Valuation their descendant, Daniel Conner, held land in the parishes of Kilmurry, barony of West Muskerry and Aghinagh, Kilbonane, Moviddy, Ballinaboy and Matehy, barony of East Muskerry, county Cork. Daniel Connor was one of the principal lessors in the parishes of Kilmocomoge and Skull, West Carbery, at the time of Griffith's Valuation. Over 180 acres in the parish of Kilnagross, barony of East Carbery, the property of Henry Connor, was offered for sale in the Landed Estates Court in June 1865. In January 1866 an estate of over 14,000 acres in the baronies of West and East Carbery, West and East Muskerry, Barretts and Kerricurrihy, belonging to Daniel Conner, was advertised for sale. Most of it was held in fee. The representatives of Daniel Connor, no address given, held 826 acres in county Cork in the 1870s. At the same time, Captain Daniel Connor, of Ballybricken, Ringaskiddy, owned over 1,362 acres.
