Landed Estates

English

Morris notes that Andrew English, of Mothel parish, married Susanna Musgrave, daugher of Richard Musgrave of the Cappoquin family, and inherited the property known as Littlebridge from him in the later eighteenth century. Burke, however, refers to an earlier marriage between a daughter of a Richard Musgrave and a Richard English of Littlebridge. Sadleir, referring to the 1770s, mentions Andrew English "of Mensborough, married to a Miss Musgrave". Pierse English, of Rockfield, Cappoquin, county Waterford, owned over 600 acres in the county in the 1870s. The Littlebridge estate was offered for sale by Andrew English in January 1852. In 1860, Richard and John Christopher English offered for sale over 6000 acres, known as the commons of Clonmel, in the Landed Estates Court.
