Forward (Fermoy)

The Abbey lands at Fermoy were in the possession of the Boyle family, Earls of Cork from at least the mid 17th century. They were leased to various persons and the interest was left by Barabara, wife of Thomas Hodder, to her nephew William Forward (died 1764). Her will was dated 1724. John Anderson bought the Forward interest in the late 18th century and developed the town. http://www.blackwater.ie/fermoy/history.htm
