Scully (Kilfeakle & Mantle Hill)

The Scullys of county Tipperary descend from Jeremiah Scully who was established at Cashel in the mid 17th century. James Scully (1737-1816) established a bank in the town of Tipperary. Jeremiah Scully held land in the parishes of Grean and Tuoghcluggin, barony of Coonagh, county Limerick, at the time of Griffith's Valuation, while at the same time James and Rodolphus Scully held land in the parishes of Inishlounaght, Newchapel and Kilmurry, barony of Iffa and Offa East, county Tipperary. William F. Scully of Ballinclough was among the principal lessors in the parishes of Islandikane and Kilbride, barony of Middlethird, county Waterford, at the same time. William Scully of Ballilnclough owned 1,354 acres in county Tipperary in the 1870s. Over 1000 acres of this estate was offered for sale in the Landed Estates Court in April 1861. Griffith's Valuation records the estate of Vincent Scully in the parishes of Donohill, Rathlynin, Relickmurry and Athassel, barony of Clanwilliam. William Scully also held land in some of these parishes. The estate of Vincent Scully consisting of 3,166 acres in the barony of Clanwilliam, county Tipperary and Kingwilliamstown, barony of Duhallow, county Cork, was advertised for sale in November 1857. The Kingwilliamstown estate had been purchased a few years previously in the Encumbered Estates' Court from the Commissioners of Woods and Forests. The estate of Caroline Mackey, widow and executrix of Charles Mackey, at Tooreenclassagh, part of the Kingwilliamstown estate, was advertised for sale in February 1875. The Mackeys may have purchased from the Scully sale. In the 1870s James Scully of Elgin Road, Dublin, owned 2,662 acres, Rodolph Scully of Fitzgibbon Street, Dublin owned 2,695 acres and Vincent Scully of Castle Park, Cashel owned 5,599 acres in county Tipperary. In May 1878 Vincent Scully's estate in the baronies of Slievardagh, and Middlethird was advertised for sale.
