Smith (Gurteen)

The Smiths of Gurteen, near Ballingarry, county Tipperary, were a younger branch of the Smiths of Milford. Both families descended from Thomas (died 1772) and Dorcas Smith of Lismacrory, a house located very close to Gurteen. William was their third son and married Sarah Stoney of Greyfort. They had four sons. The youngest, George, married Ellen Palmer of Ivy Hall. At the time of Griffith's Valuation George Smith held land in the parishes of Ballingarry, Borrisokane and Loughkeen, barony of Lower Ormond. The Gurteen estate of 998 acres and the house were advertised for sale in November 1863. George Smith was tenant under the Court of Chancery. In the 1870s George Smith of Gurteen owned 1,104 acres in county Tipperary.
