The Clutterbuck family held land in the Caher locality of county Tipperary from at least the mid 18th century as there is a reference to a lease of lands in the barony of Iffa and Offa West from William Austin to Thomas Clutterbuck in April 1748 (see Sadlier rental 15 Feb 1859). Lawrence Clutterbuck of Derryluskan married Margaret, daughter of Henry Prittie of Dunally castle, county Tipperary and their daughter, Catherine, married George Gore in 1774 . Derryluskan then became Gore property. Richard Clutterbuck of Bannoxtown, county Tipperary made his will in 1825. He left his Bannoxtown property to his brother Thomas Clutterbuck of Kilgargy [Kilgrogy] in payment of a debt.
