Baker (Redhill)

The Redhill or Mullaghroe estate was part of the King (viscount Lorton) estate centred on Rockingham, near Boyle. However, the Baker family held this property on a long lease and may have acted as agents for other landowners. McTernan indicates that the Bakers of Ardgallin were connected to the Redhill family.
