Note by Paddy O’Keefe,

Simon White had heard his great grandfather who was a son of Colonel Simon Whhite say that Togter Castle had once belonged to William White.

The Whites later Lord Bantry had come to Whiddy Island around 1700 from Dunmanway having probably originated from Co. Limerick.

Will of William Hull, 1726, Lemcon, Schull, West Cork, witnesses, Daniel Donovan Gent., Dunmanus, Owen Lander, Seneschal Lemcon Manor Court, Denis Donovan, farmer, Dunmanus. and the Manor Courts of Ballydehob, Bantry and their poor Reputation.

Another area which had the courts was Imokeely in East Cork.

The Tonson mentioned is a Hull who adopted the name Tonson by deed poll he was illegitimate.

There were various Donovan/O’Donovan families as wee the O’Driscolls in the area middle men and fish merchants.  The Hulls were around since at least 1600 and obviously were well integrated into the  area.

the Manor Courts at Ballydehob, Lemcon and Bantry were attached to estates and would have been somewhat lower then the present District Court.  According to the evidence of John Jago, Bantry c 1830 to a Parliamentary Commission they had a dreadful reputation for bribery and ill justice.  Very few of their records have survived Often they were held over pubs or in Gentlemen’s parlours.   Many of the leases for the larger holding had a covenant for the tenant to serve in the manor Courts.
