Name Description
Frankland The Franklands appear to have been resident at Ashgrove, county Cork, from at least the mid 18th century. They may have inherited it through the marriage of Richard Frankland and Agnes Rogers of Ashgrove in the 1730s. The marriage circa 1808 of Richard Frankland of Ashgrove and Phillippa daughter of Sir William Godfrey Baronet of Bushfield, county Kerry, is well recorded. At the time of Griffith's Valuation Richard Frankland held land in the parish of Templerobin, barony of Barrymore. In 1876 Richard Franklin of Ashgrove owned 215 acres in the 1870s. This surname is sometimes spelt Franklin.
