Kingston (Cork)

Kingston states that this family came to Ireland during the Munster plantation, possibly under the auspices of Phane Beecher. Modern family history sources suggest they originated in Northamptonshire. John Kingston was among the principal lessors in the parishes of Kilbrittain and Rathclarin, barony of East Carbery, at the time of Griffith's Valuation. The estate amounted to over 1300 acres in county Cork in the 1870s.
