Campion

Hajba writes that the first Thomas Campion of Leitrim, county Cork, was a Cromwellian settler who became a Quaker. Successive generations of Thomas Campions lived at Leitrim, Captain Thomas Campion having been granted the plowland of Leitrim with other lands in 1667. Thomas Campion and others held at least four townlands in the parish of Leitrim, barony of Condons and Clangibbon and Mrs Mary Campion held land in the parishes of Killathy and Kilcummer, barony of Fermoy, county Cork, in the early 1850s, much of it leased from Edward Stannard. Richard Gifford Campion held land in the parishes of Ardnageehy and Kilshanahan, barony of Barrymore. His estate in the barony of Barrymore, county Cork and in the barony of Iffa and Offa East, county Tipperary was advertised for sale in December 1856 (total 664 acres). The Freeman's Journal reported that it was purchased in trust by Messers. Hunt and White for over £2000. Almost 300 acres of Charles Campion's Tipperary estate was sold in the Encumbered Estates Court in June 1856. The purchaser was Thomas Towers. In December 1873 the estate of Robert Rowland Campion amounting to 179 acres at Loughquinn, barony of Fermoy, was advertised for sale. Three years later Loughquinn was again advertised for sale by the trustees for the sale of the estate of William Aloysius Mahony and Mary (nee Burke), his wife. The Irish Times reported that it was bought in trust for Richard Grove Annesley. In May 1874 over 200 acres at Dromdeer, the estate of Charles Tuckey Campion, were advertised for sale. The estate of Henry Campion at Leitrim was advertised for sale in November 1874 and was bought by Major Victor Reeves. In the 1870s Jeremiah Campion of Mallow owned 281 acres and Henry Campion of Cork owned 282 acres in the county.
