Landed Estates
NUI Galway


The Caddells were a family of Welsh origin, who settled in Ireland in the 12th century. The Blakes descend from the Caddells. The main branch of the Caddell family settled at the Naule, county Meath, and later at Harbourstown, near Balbriggan, in county Dublin. In the mid 18th century Richard Caddell succeeded to estates in counties Sligo, Roscommon and Galway, by the will of his uncle, James Farrell of Kilmore, county Roscommon. By the mid 1850s his nephew, Richard O'Farrell Caddell,held a large estate in the parishes of Clonbern, Dunmore and Tuam, in the baronies of Ballymoe and Dunmore, county Galway and in the parish of Kilmore, barony of Ballintober North, county Roscommon. However the Caddells sold their county Galway estate of 4,816 acres in the Encumbered Estates' Court in 1858. Richard O'Farrell Caddell, Harbourstown House, Balbriggan, county Dublin is recorded as the owner of over 3000 acres in each of counties Roscommon and Sligo in the 1870s. The male line died out in 1887 and the Caddell's county Meath estate was inherited by Sophia M. M. Jerningham (nee Caddell).
