Carey (Careysville)

Peter Carey, son and heir of Captain Peter Carey and his wife Sarah, was granted Ballymackpatricke and other lands in the barony of Condons, county Cork in 1667. Ballymacpatrick was later known as Careysville. At the time of Griffith's Valuation Edward Kiley Carey held land in the parishes of Clondulane, Kilgullane and Macroney, barony of Condons and Clangibbon, county Cork. His parents appear to be Peter Carey of Careysville and Elizabeth Kelly who married in 1793, see http://fosbery.tripod.com/CareyFamily.htm. In June 1859 lands belonging to Edward K. Carey amounting to 388 acres in the barony of Condons and Clangibbon were offered for sale. In the 1870s Edward Keily Carey's estate amounted to 1,670 acres. Careysville was inherited by the Montgomerys after the death of Edward K. Carey in the mid 1880s.
