Phibbs (Tirerrill)

The Phibbs family owned several estates in the barony of Tirerril including that at Corradoo East. The family also held property in Ballysumaghan parish centred around Doonally. William and Thomas Phibbs offered the estate at Heathfield for sale in May 1854. Harloe Phibbs was leasing extensive property in the town of Ballysadare to Robert Culbertson at the time of Griffith's Valuation. This property included mill buildings to the value of £300. In 1868 Agnes Culbertson, widow of Robert Culbertson, offered this mill complex, together with some houses and 34 acres, for sale in the Landed Estates Court. Harloe Phibbs owned over 700 acres in the 1870s while Major Richard Phibbs was the owner of over 550. In 1906 Thomas Randle Phibbs is recorded as the owner of over 300 acres of untenanted land at Ballynaboll, barony of Tirerrill, including a mansion house, probably the house known as Heathfield. At the same time William Phibbs held over 300 acres of untenanted land in the barony of Tirerrill including buildings valued at £11 at Knockbrack.
