Landed Estates

White (Lareen)

The White family acquired these lands in the Kinlough area in the early 19th century though their main estate was at Luttrellstown, county Dublin, purchased in 1800 from the Earl of Carhampton. Frank Tracy describes the White purchases in county Leitrim in the early 19th century. See also http://homepage.eircom.net/~fmasters/landlords.html#Lareen, for more information. A branch of the Massy family (Baron Massy of Duntrileague) inherited these lands from the White family. The 4th Baron Massy of Duntrileague married Luke White's daughter, Matilda, and it was through this connection that the White lands in Leitrim passed to their second son, John Thomas, who became 6th Baron Massy of Duntrileague in February 1874 on the death of his older brother, Hugh, the 5th Baron.
