Hoare (Annabelle)

Two Hoare brothers, Edward and Abraham, came to Ireland in the Cromwellian army and obtained large grants of lands in county Cork, amounting to 3,468 acres in 1667. Edward's son, also named Edward, purchased additional estates in counties Cork and Limerick and was established at Dunkettle near Cork city by the end of the 17th century. Succeeding generations of Hoares represented Cork in Parliament and Joseph Hoare of Annabelle was created a baronet in 1784. In 1800 his grandson, Sir Joseph Wallis Hoare, married Lady Harriet O'Brien, sister of James 3rd and last Marquis of Thomond. Thereafter the Hoares married English wives and appear to have been largely absentee. The representatives of Sir Joseph held townlands in the parish of Fanlobbus, barony of East Carbery and at Carrigrohane, barony of Cork at the time of Griffith's Valuation while Edward Hoare and Edward Wallace [Wallis] Hoare held an estate in the parishes of Garryvoe, Kilcredan, Ightermurragh and Kilmacdonongh, barony of Imokilly. The Reverend Edward H. Hoare held land in the parish of Ballycurrany, barony of Barrymore. An interest held by William O'Bryen Hoare in the lands of Johnstown, barony of Fermoy, was advertised for sale in April 1854 [and purchased by Frederick Bell]. In November 1854 the estate of Sir Edward Hoare and Edward Wallis Hoare in the baronies of Barrymore, East Carbery and at Carrigrohane, barony of Cork, amounting to 3,707 acres was advertised for sale. In April 1855 the estate of Sir Edward Hoare in the west division of the barony of East Carbery and part of the lands of Annabella, barony of Fermoy, amounting to 2,051 acres, was also advertised for sale. In the 1870s the representatives of Admiral [Edward Wallis] Hoare owned 779 acres and Edward Hoare owned 1,046 acres in county Cork while the representatives of the Reverend H. Edward Hoare owned 831 acres. William Jesse Hoare of Carrigrohane, youngest son of the Reverend Thomas Hoare, a brother of the 3rd Baronet, owned an estate amounting to 2,641 acres in county Cork in the 1870s.
