Carew (Ballinamona)

This branch of the Carew family descend from the family established at Castleboro, county Wexford. Robert Carew, of that family, married Anne Lynn, daughter of Andrew Lynn, of Ballinamona Park, county Waterford. Andrew Lynne was granted lands in counties Waterford and Tipperary in 1666. Robert and Anne's second son, Andrew, inherited the Lynn estates in county Waterford from his maternal grandfather. Walter Carew was among the principal lessors in the parish of Ardmore, barony of Decies-within-Drum, county Waterford in 1851 while Thomas Carew held townlands in the parish of Kilbarry, barony of Gaultiere at the same time. In December 1851 part of the estate of Walter John Carew in the barony of Decies-within-Drum was sold in the Encumbered Estates Court. The purchasers were George and Wright Sherlock. In the 1870s the estate of Robert Thomas Carew amounted to over 2300 acres in county Waterford.
