Lombard (Lombardstown)

The Lombards were located in county Cork from at least the mid 17th century. In 1724 James Lombard married Mary, daughter of Jame Uniancke of Mount Uniacke, and they later built and went to live at Lombardstown in the parish of Kilshannig, barony of Duhallow, county Cork. They had a son, Reverend Edmund Lombard, who in turn had a son, Captain Edmund Lombard. The Captain bought Danesfort from his brother-in-law, James Butler Stopford and was living there in the 1830s. In 1786, another James Lombard of Lombardstown married Anne Becher and was killed in 1799 in county Wexford. He left four children, all daughters and in the 1850s the Lombardstown estate in the parishes of Clonmeen and Kilshannig was held by his daughters and co-heiresses, Lady Cotter, Misses Henrietta and Elizabeth Lombard and also James Delacour who was married to the fourth sister, Harriet.
