Landed Estates
NUI Galway


The Jackson estate at Enniscoe, parish of Crossmolina, barony of Tirawley, county Mayo became the property of the Pratts of Cabra Castle, county Cavan, following the marriage in 1834 of the daugher and heiress of Colonel William Jackson with Mervyn Pratt. In 1876 Mervyn Pratt owned 17,955 acres in county Mayo, 8095 acres in county Cavan and 1014 acres in county Meath. In 1916 the Congested Districts' Board made a final offer of just under £50,000 for the Pratt's county Mayo estate. Enniscoe was inherited by the Nicholson family in the 20th century and the nucleus of the property has remained in the ownership of descendants of the Jacksons for over 300 years.
