Cambie

In 1667 Major Solomon Camby was granted over 1,700 acres in the barony of Lower Ormond, county Tipperary and about 90 acres in the barony of Forth, county Wexford. In the mid 19th century S.L. [Solomon Lalor] Cambie held the townland of Killoran, 1,594 acres in the barony of Eliogarty, county Tipperary, from Richard Thompson. Solomon Lalor Cambie was a grandson of Thomas Lalor of Killoran, son of Jeremiah Lalor of Barnagrotty. In the 1870s Thomas L. Cambie of Killoran owned 1,721 acres and Mary L. Cambie of Templemore owned 1,047 acres in county Tipperary [or the city of Limerick see Hussey]. Thomas Lalor Cambie died in 1896 and was succeeded at Killoran by his sisters Ellen and Margaret. In the mid 19th century Solomon D. Cambie and Charles Cambie both held land in the parish of Kilbarron, barony of Lower Ormond. In June 1856 the lands of Castletown and others amounting to 469 acres in the barony of Lower Ormond, the estate of Charles Cambie, were advertised for sale. The original lease renewable for ever was from Charles Sadlier to Anne Chambie, dated 1 February 1747. Margaret Lane married as her first husband Solomon Richard Cambie of Kilgarvan and secondly in 1846 Ambrose Lynch Berry, see http://genforum.genealogy.com/macaulay/messages/1720.html The interest of Ambrose Lynch Berry in various lands in county Tipperary was advertised for sale in April 1854.
