Robert Maude [of Yorkshire] was granted over 10,000 acres in counties Tipperary, Cork and Meath in 1666. The county Tipperary estate was by far the largest portion and it was situated in the barony of Kilnamanagh. Robert married Frances Wandesford, sister of the 1st Baron Wandesford. In 1671 their son, Anthony Maude, married Alice, daughter of Sir Standish Hartstong Baronet, of Bruff, county Limerick and from their son, Sir Robert Maude, [created a Baronet in 1705] descend the Viscounts Hawarden. By the time of Griffith's Valuation the Hawarden estate in county Tipperary was mainly located in the parishes of Ballintemple, Clonoulty, Dononyill and Kilpatrick, barony of Kilnamanagh Lower. The Viscount's estate in county Tipperary amounted to over 15,000 acres in the 1870s, while the Honourable Mrs Maude of London owned 2,957 acres.
