Atkins (Carrigaline & Queenstown)

Robert Atkins of Waterpark, Carrigaline, county Cork, Sheriff of Cork in 1722 was a relative of Robert Atkins of Firville. He had two daughters. The eldest, Margaret, married Colonel Warham St Leger. Their son, Robert, eventually succeeded to Waterpark and took the name Atkins. Berkeley estimates that the Atkins inherited about 1,000 acres of the Lavallin estate. Robert's great grandson, Robert St. Leger Atkins, was the owner of over 1600 acres in county Cork in the 1870s. He was among the principal lessors in the parishes of Carrigaline and Whitechurch at the time of Griffith's Valuation. Walter Atkins also held land in the parishes of Clonpriest and Carrigaline.
