Gibbings (Co Mayo)

In the 1870s the Reverend Richard Gibbings, Professor of Ecclesiastical History at Trinity College, Dublin, owned an estate of over 4000 acres in the parish of Burrishoole, barony of Burrishoole, county Mayo, previously the Newfield estate of Henry J. Smith. Untenanted lands in a number of townlands were still in the family's possession in 1906 but no mansion house is recorded for Newfield. The estate of 4,069 acres was vested in the Congested Districts' Board on 25 Mar 1915. Professor Gibbings was a cousin of Bartholomew Gibbings of Gibbings Grove, county Cork.
