Landed Estates
NUI Galway


The Fitzmaurices held three townlands in the parish of Balla, barony of Clanmorris, county Mayo and also a townland in the parish of Manulla, barony of Carra. At the time of the first Ordnance Survey the Fitzmaurices were also leasing some of the estate of Sir C. Domville in the parish of Templemore, barony of Gallen. In 1858 the estate of 424 acres was put up for sale in the Encumbered Estates' Court. A document in the Plunket Papers in PRONI records the purchase of the lands of Legaturn, part of the lands of Ballykerrigan and the lands of Ballymakeogh, in the barony of Clanmorris by William Robbins Falkiner on 19 June 1858 for £4900.
