Blake (Belmont)

The Blakes of Belmont, parish of Liskeevy, barony of Dunmore, county Galway, were descended from John, sixth son of George Blake of Garracloone, county Mayo and his wife Juliane Lynch. John Blake married a sister of James Cuff, 1st Baron Tyrawley and by his marriage acquired the Belmont estate. Their descendants held the Belmont estate, from the See of Tuam, during the 19th century until its sale in the Encumbered Estates' Court in April 1852 to James D. Meldon. In 1824 John Blake of Belmont was described as a resident proprietor in county Galway. The Blakes also held 1808 acres in the parish of Ballintober, barony of Carra, county Mayo. Their county Mayo estate was sold in the Encumbered Estates' Court in 1852 to Charles Crotty.
