Name Description
Lockwood The Lockwoods were established in the Cashel area of county Tipperary from the early 18th century. A document in the Kilboy Papers refers to Richard Lockwood, the elder, of Cashel, "a rich farmer" and to his son William Lockwood who was married to a daughter of Hamilton Lowe and through his marriage connected to the Bagwell and Butler families. Two other members of the Lockwood family are mentioned and their estates were calculated to be worth £3,400 in the mid 1770s. This family was related to the Manserghs of Grenane and the Chadwicks of Ballinard. Charles B. Lockwood and Major James Scargill held two townlands in the parish of St Patricksrock, barony of Middlethird, county Tipperary in the mid 19th century while the Reverend Robert Lockwood held 3 townlands in the parish of Rahelty, barony of Eliogarty (Archerstown, Kyle and Townaghna). The nearby townlands of Corbally and Rathmanna held by Messrs Doherty and Waller in the mid 19th century, may also have been Lockwood property as the Lockwoods had family connections with the Doherty and Waller families. The newspaper ''The Anglo Celt'' (28 July 1848) records the marriage of Gertrude daughter of the Reverend Robert C. Lockwood of Indaville, Cashel, to Charles O'Reilly. Archerstown, Kyle, Townagh and other lands in the barony of Eliogarty, the estate of Christopher H. Lawder, assignee of Richard Lockwood, an insolvent, were advertised for sale in April 1856. In June 1865 houses and premises belonging to Richard Lockwood and others in the town of Cashel were advertised for sale. In the 1870s the representatives of Lockwood and Scott, England, owned 141 acres in county Tipperary.
Doherty (Cos Tipperary & Cork) A family from Inishowen, county Donegal, who moved south in the late 17th century and settled in county Tipperary and later in county Cork. James Doherty of Oldtown, county Tipperary, had two sons, James of Kedragh and Nicholas of Outrath. The Ryan of Inch papers in the Boole Library, University College Cork, contain leases between members of the Ryan and Doherty families for lands at Kedra and elsewhere in Tipperary. At the time of Griffith's Valuation Nicholas J. Doherty held land in the parish of Clogher, barony of Kilnamanagh Lower, county Tipperary. The nearby townlands of Corbally and Rathmanna were held by Messrs Waller and Doherty and may originally have been Lockwood property. James Doherty married Rebecca, daughter of Richard Lockwood of Indaville and their daugher, Catherine, married Edward Waller of Limerick. The Waller of Rockvale entry in Burke's Landed Gentry (1904) shows Katherine Lockwood marrying Samuel Waller. [ Editions of Burke's Landed Gentry from the 1850s give details of the genealogy of this family in county Tipperary which are not included in the Doherty entry in the 1904 edition.] In May 1855 the estate of John Aldridge and John George Smyly, trustees of the will of the Right Honourable John Doherty, deceased, being part of the manor and lordship of Thurles, was advertised for sale. A branch of this family moved to the Bandon area of county Cork in the mid 18th century and in the late 19th century Richard Wheeler Doherty was agent to the Earl of Bandon and other smaller landowners in the Bandon vicinity.
Ryan (Thurles) The gravestone inscriptions from St Mary's Churchyard, Thurles, county Tipperary record the family of Thomas Ryan of Thurles who died on 31 July 1818 aged 71 and his wife Catherine and their sons John, Jeremiah and Thomas. William Ryan son of Thomas Ryan of Thurles died on 29 July 1841 aged 65. see In May 1855 lands at Mullanes and Laharden, the estate of Thomas Ryan were advertised for sale in the Encumbered Estates' Court. In February 1865 the estate of Thomas Ryan at Rathmanna, Lognafulla and Mullanes, barony of Eliogarty, held on a lease from James Doherty to Thomas Ryan, grandfather of Thomas Ryan, was advertised for sale amounting to approximately 340 acres. At the same time Daniel, John and Robert O'Connell were advertising the sale of their interest in the lands of Rathmanna and in lands in the barony of Duhallow, county Cork. Margaret Ryan, sister of Thomas Ryan was married to Thomas Cormack of Clonmel.
