Ffrench (Rahasane)

In 1675 the ffrenches bought the lands of Cummer and Drumgriffin in the barony of Clare which had been granted to the Legge family, later Earls of Dartmount, under the Acts of Settlement. Through his mother Elizabeth Nagle of county Cork, Robert J. Ffrench inherited some of the Nagle property in the barony of Fermoy, county Cork. In 1824 Robert Joseph French of Rahasane is described as a resident proprietor in county Galway but later in the 19th century the ffrench family of Rahasane became indebted to the Smyth family who later purchased large portions of the Rahasane estate, including those in the parish of Cummer.
