Daunt (East Carbery)

This branch of the Daunt family descends from William Daunt of the Tracton Abbey family, whom Burke claims to have acquired Kilcascan [Kilcaskan] in the early years of the eighteenth century. William O'Neill Daunt was one of the principal lessors in the parish of Ballymoney, East Carbery, at the time of Griffith's Valuation. In the 1870s he was the owner of over 600 acres in county Cork. He was briefly MP for Mallow, 1832-33, and a well-known author on the Irish national question.
