Name Description
Blake (Glenlo) Martin J. Blake writes that Henry Blake of Glenlo Abbey, a medical doctor, was a grandson of Patrick Blake of Kiltullagh and a brother of James Blake of Cregg Castle. Henry Blake died in 1830. In the 1870s this branch of the Blake family owned over 1,000 acres in county Galway. The estate was advertised for sale in the Landed Estates' Court in July 1883 and was comprised of Glenlo Abbey, Annaghmore West in the barony of Tiaquin and Ballynamordoon and Gortdrishagh in the barony of Leitrim.
Blake (Duniry) At the time of Griffith's Valuation, Peter Blake was leasing a property in the townland of Duniry to Patrick Kennedy. In 1848 this property was described in the ''Galway Mercury'' newspaper as the property of Thomas Blake.
