Ryan (Tyone)

In the 1870s Thomas John Ryan of Tyone House, Nenagh, county Tipperary, owned 1,319 acres in county Tipperary. He was the son of Malachy Ryan, possibly Malachy Ryan of Moyroe. Malachy Ryan bought the lands of Moyroe from James Fitzpatrick circa 1850 in the Encumbered Estates' Court. Thomas John Ryan of Tyone House inherited the Riggs Miller estate. He was the eldest son of Malachi Ryan and Eliza Miller daughter of John Miller of Toonagh, Ennis, county Clare according to a Genealogy Office manuscript. T.J. Ryan took the name Riggs Miller in 1889. ''The Nenagh Guardian'' of 29 October 1877 records the marriage of Thomas John Ryan of Tyone House, Nenagh and Margaret Josephine, daughter of John Bernal, Esq., Albert Lodge, Laurel Hill, Limerick at St. Michael's Parish Church, by the Rev. Daniel Fitzgerald. The following website gives a detailed history of the Riggs Miller family and the Ryan connection.
