Landed Estates
NUI Galway


In 1852 Charles Crotty bought the county Mayo part of the estate of the Blakes of Belmont, county Galway, in the Encumbered Estates' Court, for £1,025. This estate was in the parish of Ballintober, barony of Carra. Pádraig G. Lane writes that he was a Dublin grocer and gives a graphic description of Crotty's relationship with his tenants in an article published in the ''Journal of the Galway Archaeological and Historical Society'' (1993). In 1876 Charles Crotty of Kinnewry House owned 1739 acres in county Mayo.
