Garde The Gardes were originally from Kent and settled in county Cork in the mid 17th century. In the 18th century the Garde family were associated with Ballybane, Rathcannon, Polemore, Broomfield, Dunsfort and Ballindinis, county Cork. They were established at Ballynacorra by the end of the 18th century. William Garde of Broomfield and Ballynacorra died childless in 1791 and left his estates to his nephew, Thomas Garde of Ballynacorra and of Garryduff, county Waterford. Thomas Garde was attorney to the Duke of Devonshire in the late 18th century. In 1761 Thomas married Mary Anne Prendergast of Mullogh Abbey, county Tipperary and heir to her brother, Captain Henry Prendergast. Their son, Henry P. Garde, inherited Garryduffe and Ballynacorra and married Catherine Hoare of Annabella, county Cork in 1806. They had two sons, Thomas of Ballynacorra and Garryduffe and Edward of Carewswood. Their daughter, Clotilda, married Francis Rowland of Kilboy House.
