The Lavallin family held an estate in the Queenstown vicinity of county Cork in the late 17th century. Berkeley writes that in the late 1720s James Lavallin alienated his estates to Lord Barrymore. A long running family dispute over ownership of some of the Lavallin estates took place in the 18th century. His son Philip of Waterpark, Carrigaline married Sarah Kingston and left three daughters who married Robert St Leger Atkins, Henry Puxley of Dunboy and Dr Joseph Rogers of Seaview. In 1819 Mary daughter of Dr Rogers married Timothy O'Donovan of O'Donovan's Cove.
