Walsh (Mohill)

John Walsh was leasing property from Rev. Augustus Crofton in Mohill parish in the 1850s. He is also recorded as the lessor of a house valued at £12 in Clooncahir townland which was vacant at the time of Griffith's Valuation. The Walsh family "of Drumsna" are recorded as agents to the Boyle estate of Oliver Begg, of Mount Dalton, county Meath at the time of the first Ordnance Survey. In 1837 Hugh Walsh of Drumsna served as High Sheriff of Leitrim. In 1854 and again in 1861 the estate of Gerard Francis Walsh, a minor, was offered for sale in the Landed Estates' Court. It included a house in Drumsna as well as lands in the baronies of Ballintober and Boyle, county Roscommon, the barony of Tullyhunco, county Cavan and other parts of county Leitrim. The petitioners included members of the O'Beirne family. Belmont mansion and demesne, part of the town parks of Drumsna, with a fee farm rent on some land in the parish of Kilmore, barony of Ballintober North, county Roscommon, the estate of Gerald Francis Walsh, were advertised for sale in June 1883. Gerald F. Walsh owned 257 acres in county Roscommon and 95 acres in county Leitrim in the 1870s.
