Estate(s)

Name Description
Gibbs (Derry) The Gibbs family of Cork city and Derry, county Cork, are possibly descended from Gibbes of Devon. Daniel Gibbes is mentioned by Smith as having made "very good improvements" at Derry in the mid 18th century. Daniel Gibbes married Frances daughter and co heiress of George Bennett, Alderman of Cork. They had two sons Daniel of Derry and the Reverend John. In 1778 Daniel married Mary Warren of Warrenscourt and they were the parents of John Bennett Gibbs and the Reverend Robert Warren Gibbs who married Maria Cross of Shandy Hall. The descendants of the Reverend John Gibbs of Inchigeelagh and Ballynora, county Cork, were living in Sheffield, Yorkshire, in the 1880s. At the time of Griffith's Valuation the Reverend Robert Gibbs owned land in the parish of Donaghmore, barony of East Muskerry, county Cork. The Gibbs are not recorded as owning land in the county in 1876.
Vize At the time of Griffith's Valuation John Bennett Vize held land at Clonmoyle East, parish of Aghabulloge, barony of East Muskerry, county Cork, however it appears to have been heavily encumbered and was offered for sale in March 1854 with part of the lands of Derry, barony of Barretts [East Muskerry] and premises in the city of Cork. The original leases were from Robert Davies to Robert Vize 1787 and from Daniel Gibbs to James Vize 1774. see http://www.stephen.balsbaugh.name/genealogy/wrixon/okief/vol15.doc There were also Vizes in the Clonmel area of county Tipperary in the late 18th century. At the time of Griffith's Valuation Edward B. Vise held land in the parish of Mora, barony of Middlethird, county Tipperary. The estate of the Reverend Joseph Vize at Springfield was advertised for sale in October and December 1852.
