Lovett

In the early 18th century Robert Lovett of Liscombe, Buckinghamshire held a property at Kingswell, county Tipperary. He married Sarah daughter of John Ashe of Ashgrove, county Tipperary and was succeeded by his eldest son Jonathan. Jonathan Lovett married Eleanor daugher of Daniel Mansergh of Macrony, county Cork and they had a son also named Jonathan, who became a baronet in 1781. Jonathan Lovett of Kingswell had an estate valued at £1,500 in the 1770s "a great part of which lies in England. He is related to Counsellor Darby" (Kilboy Papers). By his will dated 1770 Jonathan Lovett senior left his Irish property to his younger son the Reverend Verney Lovett, chaplain to the Prince of Wales and his son Henry William succeeded to Kingswell. Following Sir Jonathan's death in 1812 his Liscombe estate was inherited by his daughters. At the time of Griffith's Valuation Lady Elizabet Lovett held 2 townlands in the parish of Rahelty, barony of Eliogarty. In May 1863 the estate of the trustees of Elizabeth Lovett at Rahealty, barony of Eliogarty, county Tipperary, was advertised for sale.
