Bayly (Debsborough)

The Bayly family were established at Debsborough, Nenagh, county Tipperary from the early 18th century when they obtained fee farm grants from the Duke of Ormonde. Successive generations of John Baylys lived at Debsborough in the 18th and 19th centuries. A younger son, Richard Uniacke Bayly, was "of Ballyre, county Cork and Ballynaclogh, county Tipperary". In the mid 19th century the Bayly estate was located in the parishes of Dangandargan and St Patrickrock, barony of Middlethird and Ballynaclogh, barony of Upper Ormond. In the 1870s Robert M. Bayly of Ballyre, Killeagh, county Cork owned 1,728 acres in county Cork while John Bayly of Debsborough owned 1,788 acres in county Tipperary and Richard Uniacke Bayly of Dundrum, Cashel owned 1,968 acres in county Tipperary. At the time of Griffith's Valuation, Richard Bayley was among the principal lessors in the parish of Clashmore, barony of Decies-within-Drum, county Waterford. In April 1869, lands in that barony, the property of William Bayley, were offered for sale in the Landed Estates Court.
