Grant (Kilmurry)

The Grant family were originally settled in county Waterford. They were established at Kilmurry, parish of Leitrim, county Cork, by the end of the 17th century. Successive generations of Thomas Grants descended from Thomas Grant and his wife, Elizabeth Campion of Leitrim, who married in 1748 and lived at Kilmurry. By the time of Griffith's Valuation Thomas St John Grant held an estate in the parish of Leitrim which in the 1870s amounted to over a thousand acres in county Cork. He also owned 1,217 acres in county Waterford, including the parish of Leitrim, barony of Coshmore and Coshbride, and property in the Barony of Gaultiere.
