Ashe (Ashgrove, Templeneiry)

Descended from a Somerset family, Jonathan Ashe settled in the barony of Clanwilliam, county Tipperary, in the early 18th century. In the early 19th century his descendant, Trevor Lloyd Ashe, son of Lovett Ashe and Waller Lloyd, held the estate. When Trevor L. Ashe died in 1822 he left Ashgrove to his nephew, Trevor Lloyd Ashe, the son of his sister Arabella Ashe and her husband Captain Henry Ashe of the 16th Regiment of Foot. At the time of Griffith's Valuation, Trevor Lloyd Ashe, held an estate mainly in the parish of Templeneiry but also in Cordangan, barony of Clanwiliam. In May 1854 this estate of over 7,600 acres was advertised for sale in the Encumbered Estates Court and purchased by Charles Moore [of Mooresfort] of Liverpool. [Rev] Trevor Lloyd Ashe had a brother John Henry Ashe and a sister Margaretta Mary who married John Moore Mulcahy of Summerville, county Tipperary in 1846.
