Philip Maguire was a son of Constantine Maguire of Tempo, county Fermanagh who inherited an estate in county Tipperary through his mother, Phoebe Macnamara, in 1830. Phoebe had family connections with the Creagh Butler family. Constantine was murdered at Toureen in 1834. In July 1852 the estate of Hugh and Philip Maguire, devisees of Constantine Maguire, deceased, at Kilnacask Lower, Dranganmore, and Toureen, in the barony of Clanwilliam, was advertised for sale.
