Musgrave (Waterford)

Burke states that the Musgraves were originally descended from a Yorkshire family. The first Richard Musgrave settled in county Waterford and his descendents married into the Chearnley, Englsh and Ussher families. A later Richard was created a baronet in the peerage of Ireland in the 1780s, was a member of parliament and a well-known historian. His grand-nephew, Sir Richard, was the owner of over 8200 acres in county Waterford in the 1870s. His father had been among the principal lessors in the parishes of Lismore and Mocollop, barony of Coshmore and Coshbride, Lisgrenan or Grange, barony of Decies-within-Drum and Kilgobnet and Whitechurch, barony of Decies-without- Drum at the time of Griffith's Valuation.
