The Blakes had owned an estate at Corbally, parish of Ardrahan since the 15th century. In 1824 a Blake of Corbally was described as a resident proprietor in county Galway but shortly afterwards they were obliged to sell to the Dalys when the estate became known as Castledaly. In 1756 they had sold Aghrim Castle,in the parish of Athenry, to the Lamberts who built a house at the site and renamed it Castle Lambert.
