Mandeville

The Mandevilles were established at Ballydine Castle, parish of Kilmurry, south county Tipperary from medieval times. Ballydine Castle was sold to the Earl of Clonmel in 1781 by Thomas Mandeville of Ballyquirkeen/Ballycurkeen. In the 1770s Thomas Mandeville's estate was valued at £1,500. A junior branch of the family descend from Ambrose Mandeville who purchased Ballinahy in 1683. In 1803 Ambrose's descendant John Shaw Mandeville married Sophia Herbert, sister of Dorothea Herbert, authoress. They had two sons Ambrose who died aged 21 and the Reverend Nicholas Mandeville, who was chaplain to the Marquess of Waterford and extended the family home at Ballinahy. At the time of Griffith's Valuation members of the Mandeville family held land in the parishes of Kilmurry, Newchapel and Kilsheelan, barony of Iffa and Offa East, county Tipperary. In the 1870s Eliza Mandeville (widow of the Reverend Nicholas) of Ballinamore owned 306 acres, Henry Mandeville of Anner Castle owned 69 acres and Jane Mandeville of Ballyquirkeen owned 135 acres in county Tipperary. Thomas H. Mandeville of Ballyquirkeen owned 85 acres in county Waterford at that time.
