Courtenay (Ballyedmond)

Ballyedmond, parish of Templenacarriga, barony of Barrymore, county Cork, was originally a Browne property which passed to the Courtenays by marriage. George Courtenay married Anne, daughter of Leonard Ashe of Drishane, county Cork. She died in 1823. Their grandson, George Courtenay of Dromadda, married Caroline Augusta, daugher of John Smith Barry of Fota, county Cork. However neither of their sons had children and John, a brother of George, eventually succeeded to the property. Griffith's Valuation records the bulk of John Courtenay's estate in the parish of Templenacarriga, barony of Barrymore, but also records him holding land in the parishes of Kilshannig, barony of Duhallow, Shandrum, barony of Orrery and Kilmore, Rahan, barony of Fermoy, Britway, Carrigtohill, Dungourney and Templebodan, barony of Barrymore. Killeagh, barony of Imokilly. In 1861 he died unmarried and was succeeded by his nephew, Richard Hugh Smith Barry.
