The Dillons lived at Clashadoo, Durrus and were intermarried with Roycrofts and Canty. The family has a large tomb in Moulivard Graveyard (Durrus East).

Thomas is probably an ancestor to Miss Dillon who had a pub i Bantry near the old railway station and extensive property. She left this to her lat nephew Seán Dillon of Clashadoo who in the late 1940s was heavily involved in Clann na Poblachta.

the Dillons may be of the same family as that of the lady who married one of the Bantry Whites in the 1770s. The marriage was set aside as having been performed by a ‘Popish priest’.
