In the 1870s her estate amounted to over 700 acres in that county with over 100 acres in county Limerick. She was resident in Merrion Square, Dublin, at the time. Walter Giles, with an address in Pembroke road, Dublin, held over 600 acres in county Waterford as well as over 130 acres in county Kilkenny.
