Barry (Ballyclogh)

The Barry family, 'McAdam Barry', were established at Lisnagar, Rathcormack and Ballyclough, county Cork, in the 17th century. In 1750 James Barry of Ballyclough succeeded his cousin, Redmond Barry of Rathcormack and in 1765 James married Elizabeth, daughter and co heiress of Abraham Greene of Ballymacreese, county Limerick. At the time of Griffith's Valuation their grandson, James Barry, held land in the parishes of Glanworth and Kilgullane, barony of Fermoy, Kilcrumper and Kilgullane, barony of Condons and Clangibbon., county Cork, and Lismore and Mocollop, barony of Coshmore and Coshbride, county Waterford. James Barry married Olivia Maria Drew, sole heiress of Francis Drew of Mocollop Castle, county Waterford in 1841. They had no children. In the 1870s Captain James Barry of Ballyclogh owned 3,910 acres in county Cork and 6,955 acres in county Waterford. The Waterford estate included property in the parish of Affane, barony of Decies without Drum. James died in 1881 and was succeeded by his brother and then in 1888 by his grand-nephew, James Robert Bury, who took the additional name of Barry.
