Wall (Dysert)

Gallway states that the Wall family had held property in the neighbourhood of Coolnamuck, barony of Upperthird, since 1588. Referring the 1770s Sadleir also notes James Wall as "of Coolnamuck" who died in 1810. In the 1870s Mrs.James Wall, with a Dublin address, owned over 300 acres in county Waterford. James Wall was among the principal lessors in the parishes of Dysert and Kilmoleran, barony of Upperthird and the parish of Dungarvan, barony of Decies without Drum, at the time of Griffith's Valuation. Some of his lands in the parish of Mothel, barony of Upperthird, county Waterford were offered for sale in the Encumbered Estates court in August 1850. Sir Benajmin Morris Wall held townlands in the parish of Mothel in the early 1850s. 1200 acres of the estate in the barony of Coshmore and Coshbride as well as over 2000 acres of the Tipperary estate were offered for sale in the Court in November 1850. In 1852 over 2000 acres of the Waterford and Tipperary estates were again offered for sale, including Coolnamuck.
