In the mid 19th century members of the Pratt family of Gawsworth, county Cork, held lands in the parishes of Ightermurragh, Mogeely, Titeskin and Killeagh, barony of Imokilly, county Cork. Some of the Pratt land was held from the Earl of Shannon. In 1815 Major Henry Pratt of Sundays Well, Cork married Sarah daughter of Richard Fitton of Gawsworth. The 1876 return of landowners records Charles Pratt of Carrigrohane owning 934 acres, Richard Pratt of Kinsale owning 525 acres, Robert Pratt of Gawsworth owning 2,870 acres [Hussey gives a figure of 4716 acres for Robert] and Sarah Pratt of Sundays Well owning 870 acres in the county.
