Ashe (Ashgrove & Codrum)

In the mid 19th century the Ashe estate was mainly located in the parishes of Kilnamartery and Clondrohid, barony of West Muskerry, county Cork. Richard and Edward Ashe were the proprietors. This estate of Richard Ashe, consisting of 1770 acres in the baronies of Fermoy and West Muskerry, was advertised for sale in December 1850. In January 1851 the Freeman's Journal reported that the purchasers were Messers. Adams, Robinson and Harding. The lands of Cooleyhane were offered for sale in May 1854 with other property. By the 1870s the estate had been sold and only 45 acres remained in the possession of Charles Evanson Ashe of Codrum, Macroom.
