Walsh (Walsh Park)

John Adams Walsh had a son, Charles Walsh of Walsh Park, county Tipperary, who married Sarah Simpson and had a son, John. The estate of Charles Walsh at Derrylaghan was worth £1,000 in the 1770s (Kilboy Papers). In 1795 John Walsh married Eliza, daughter of Jonathan Willington of Rapla, county Tipperary. The representatives of their son, Jonathan Walsh, held land in the parishes of Dorrha and Lorrha, barony of Lower Ormond, in the mid 19th century. The estate of John Adams Walsh of Walsh Park in county Tipperary amounting to 1,323 acres was advertised for sale in April 1857 and houses and premises in the town of Burrisokane in April 1858. The Freeman's Journal reported that the latter were purchased in trust by Reverend Mr. Lloyd. The estate was bought by the Heads who built Derrylahan Park in the townland of Walshpark in 1862.
