Ashworth (Co Mayo)

In the early 1850s Reverend John Hervey Ashworth bought lands in the barony of Burrishoole, county Mayo, from the sale of the O'Donel of Newport estate but appears to have sold them on very rapidly to Alexander W. Wyndham. "The General Armoury" refers to Ashworth of Ashworth and Hall Carr, Co Lancaster and Elland Bank, in Yorkshire, represented by Reverend John Hervey Ashworth (page 29). Thomas Ashworth, who also had Lancashire connections, purchased the Galway fishery in the Encumbered Estates' Court in 1852.

No houses were found for this estate
