Gethin

Under the Restoration settlement Richard Gethin, created a baronet in 1665, was granted a large estate in county Cork (over 5,500 acres) and premises in Waterford and Wexford. He established the manor of Gethinsgrott, barony of Fermoy, in county Cork. The Gethin family later acquired extensive lands in the south eastern part of County Sligo as well as property in Sligo town. They also leased property from other estates notably the Gore Booths. In 1853 parts of Sir Richard Gethin's estate was offered for sale in the Encumbered Estates Court. By 1906 Percy Gethin still held over 200 acres of untenanted land at Kingsborough, barony of Tirerrill.
