A Quaker family located in the Caher area of south county Tipperary from the mid 17th century. They were prosperous farmers and millers. Family members held land in the parishes of Caher, Tubbrid and Whitechurch, barony of Iffa and Offa West and in the parishes of Rathcool and Mora, barony of Middlethird, in the mid 19th century.
