In July 1863 Alexander John Mansfield, second son of Alexander Mansfield of Morristown Lattin, county Kildare, married Maria, eldest daughter of Sir John Howley, a prominent Irish barrister, of the Howley family of Rich Hill, near Limerick city. The Mansfields were extensive Irish landowners, with estates of over 4,500 acres in county Kildare and over 1,000 acres in county Waterford in the 1870s. At the same time Alexander John Mansfield with an address in Bristol, owned 131 acres in county Limerick, the property was held by his father in law, Serjeant John Howley, at the time of Griffith's Valuation. A notebook in the National Library of Ireland shows that this property at Pallasgreen, parish of Grean, barony of Coonagh, county Limerick, produced an annual rental of £445.
