Tierney

Edward Tierney (1780-1856) was Crown Solicitor of the North West circuit. His brother, Sir Matthew Tierney, was physician to King George III and King William IV and when Matthew died in 1844 Edward succeeded as second baronet. Edward Tierney was agent and legal adviser to the 5th Earl of Egmont. The Earl left at least part of his estates to Edward Tierney when he died in 1841. Sir Edward Tierney died in 1856 leaving the Egmont [Churchtown] estates to his son-in-law, Reverend Sir Lionel Darrel. In the early 1860s the 6th Earl of Egmont took a legal action to regain the Egmont estates which was settled out of Court. The estates were returned to the Earl and Sir Lionel received £125,000 and costs. Griffith's Valuation shows the Tierney estate was centred on the parish of Churchtown, barony of Orrery and Kilmore but it also contained lands in the parishes of Bregoge, Kilbroney and Kirogan, barony of Orrery and Kilmore and in the town of Kanturk and parishes of Clonfert, Kilcorcoran and Kilmeen, barony of Duhallow and Imphrick, barony of Fermoy. The 1870s sources suggest Sir Lionel Darrell owned 30 acres in county Cork. See http://www.churchtown.net/Webpages/history/H-darrell.htm
