The Blacquiere estate amounted to over 800 acres in the parish of Beagh, barony of Kiltartan, county Galway, in the 1870s. James Blaquiere was the petitioner to a sale in the Encumbered estates court in January 1866 relating to property in the town of Gort, owned by the Nestor family. Later in the 1880s Thomas Blaquiere appears to have acquired an interest in the Derryowen estate of the Lopdell family, in the barony of Inchiquin, county Clare. He was advertising the sale of this estate in July 1889.
