McCarthy (Springhouse)

Justin McCarthy of Springhouse, county Tipperary, is mentioned in the Ryan of Inch Papers in 1723 and this collection also contains copy wills of Justin McCarthy of Springhouse 1752 and Dennis McCarthy 1761. The Ryans and McCarthys were related through marriage. Arthur Young visited John McCarthy's farm at Springhouse, which he supposed to be 'the most considerable one in the world' at about 9,000 acres in size. Leet's Directory records Thomas McCarthy of Springhouse in 1814.
