Evans (Carker)

The Evans family first settled in county Limerick but through marriage with Bridget Green of Carker, parish of Doneraile, county Cork, they inherited that property. At the time of Griffith's Valuation Nicholas and Ralph Evans held at least eight townlands in the parish of Doneraile. Ralph was the eldest son of Nicholas Green Evans and Anne, daughter of Ralph Westropp of Attyflin, county Limerick. In 1818 he married his cousin, Henrietta Louisa Westropp, and died in 1864. In the 1870s his son, John Westropp Evans, owned 2,392 acres in county Cork.
