Robert D'Arcy is described as a resident proprietor in 1824. At the time of Griffith's Valuation he was leasing this property from the Clanricarde estate. The D'Arcys appear to have worked for many years as land agents for the Clanricardes. Francis D'Arcy of Woodville owned 1,590 acres in county Galway in the 1870s. Kelly noted that, in relation to lands in the Craughwell area, two daughters of the D'Arcy family later entered the convent in Loughrea and the lands in Craughwell were sold to the tenants.
