In the 1870s Arthur F. C. Tollemache with an address Ham House, Petersham, owned 2,124 acres in county Tipperary. Arthur Frederick Churchill Tollemache was a great grandson of Louisa Countess of Dysart and a nephew of Lionel William 7th Earl of Dysart. In 1857 he married Emily daughter of Major General Sir Jeremiah Bryant and died in 1874. Arthur and Emily had a son also named Arthur Frederick Churchill, born 1860.
