Name Description
Fawcett (Moneygold) The Fawcett estate was centred around Sligo but the family held lands in other parts of the county, notably in Tireragh. The name occurs in records as Fawcett, Fausett and Fawsett. The Fawcetts seem to have acquired some of the Soden estate.
Fawcett (Lecarrow) In 1830 James Nesbitt Cullen conveyed lands at Lough Allen, county Leitrim to James Fawcett. In 1840 he married Francis Elizabeth Le Fanu (''The Gentleman's Magazine''). In the 1870s the James Fawcett and the Reverend Edward Fawcett, both of Strandhill, are recorded as owning over 1,000 acres in county Leitrim.
