Lord Campbell gained possession of the Moycullen and West Barna estates of Andrew Henry Lynch in the parishes of Kilcummin and Rahoon, county Galway, advertised for sale by Lynch's co heiresses in the Encumbered Estates' Court in June 1851. The estates were heavily mortgaged to Lord Campbell. In the early 1870s Lord Campbell owned over 5,000 acres in county Galway and over 3,000 in the county of the town of Galway. Almost 4,000 acres of his estate was vested in the Congested Districts' Board on 31 Mar 1915.
