Simpson

John Hawkins Simpson of Alstonfield, Derbyshire, leased the farm and lands of Russia and Knockychottaun in the parish of Kilmeena, barony of Burrishoole, and also lands in the barony of Murrisk, county Mayo, from the Marquess of Sligo and Earl of Lucan in the mid 19th century. His land holding is well documented in the Westport Estate Papers. In 1873 Simpson assigned the lease of some of his lands to John Challinor of Leek in Staffordshire, who surrendered the lease in 1882.
