Palmer (Leitrim)

The Palmer family were resident at Sriff or Shriff from at least the end of the 18th century. They held lands in the parishes of Drumlease and Drumreilly, barony of Dromahaire in the mid-19th century. Henry Manly Palmer of Sriff was a member of the Grand Jury for Leitrim in 1851. Isabella Palmer of Drumkeel is recorded as owning over 1300 acres in Leitrim in 1876. Thomas Robert Palmer, living at Friarstown in the 1870s, owned over 1600 acres in county Leitrim at that time. This family intermarried with the Cullen family of county Leitrim on a number of occasions.
