Beresford (Woodhouse)

In the 1870s Robert H. Beresford was the owner of over 2000 acres in county Waterford. Almost 200 acres of his estate in the barony of Decies-without-Drum was offered for sale in the Landed Estates Court in June 1874. The Uniacke estate at Woodhouse, Stradbally, was inherited by the Beresfords in the 1850s. The ITA Survey notes that this occurred through the marriage of Colonel Beresford to Frances C. Uniacke.
