ESTATE: WRIGHT (CO CORK)

Associated Families

Description

In 1666 William Wright was granted 839 acres in the barony of East Carbery, county Cork. The estate expanded over time but over 1400 acres was offered for sale in the Landed Estates Court in February 1860. This sale included lands in the baronies of West Muskerry and West Carbery as well as Lurriga Mill. Over 700 acres, the property of Samuel Digby Wright and Henry Wilson Wright (deceased) as well as interest in Lurriga Mill, were offered for sale in the Court in October 1874. In the 1870s Digby Wright of Bandon owned 715 acres, Henry Wright of Cashefane, Durrus, and Thomas R. Wright of Clonakilty owned 1,257 acres in county Cork. The representatives of Rev. Richard Wright held over 800 acres in county Cork in the 1870s.

The Clonakilty Wrights may be related to the Protestant Dunmanway O’Sullivan Landowning family which might explain their association with Cashelane, Durrus.

The 10 Oldest Languages Still Spoken in the World Today. Irish has the oldest vernacular literature of any language in Western Europe. While the rest of Europe was speaking their own languages and writing in Latin, the Irish decided that they wanted to write in their own language instead.

Irish Gaelic

Although Irish Gaelic is only spoken as a native language by a small majority of Irish people nowadays, it has a long history behind it. It is a member of the Celtic branch of Indo-European languages, and it existed on the islands that are now Great Britain and Ireland well before the Germanic influences arrived. Irish Gaelic was the language from which Scottish Gaelic and Manx (which is spoken on the Isle of Man) arose, but the fact that really lands it on this list is that it has the oldest vernacular literature of any language in Western Europe. While the rest of Europe was speaking their own languages and writing in Latin, the Irish decided that they wanted to write in their own language instead.

in the 1970s in UCC, Cork there was a story circulating that the Professor Breathnach of the Irish Department did his M.A. thesis on the place name of Cape Clear Island and concluded that were probably of Basque origin.

Dan Suggest a strong connection between the Basque Country and Ireland. forgetting the linguistic difference in the towns and villages of the Basque Country the similarities are remarkable. A strong sense of family, community and cohesion, a work ethic and a propensity to emigration.

The Basque Country is only a few days sailing away from West Cork/South Kerry with good winds. It looks like based on DNA analysis that the Celts were small in number but with superior technology and when they arrive in Ireland they locals took on their language. In West Cork some of the pre Celtic families e the Coghlans adn O’Driscolls.

Irish declined in the 19th century but then it is day that the people still continue t speak Irish but through the medium of the English Language

In 1900 there were probably

The Wolfes are  probably part of the migration of English Protestants  mainly from the West County to the Bandon area from the 1590s.  Ironically many were no conformist.  In time many of these families broke into three separate segments: Church of Ireland, Catholic and Methodist.  From church and other records it is likely that the Wolfes migrated westward from Bandon to the Skibbereen area and to the Mizen from the late 17th, early 18th  century.

Stories are still told in West Cork about Jasper Wolfe. He led a remarkable and dangerous existence in the turbulent early years of the twentieth century. A highly successful lawyer in Skibbereen, he was a strong supporter of Home Rule and gave an acclaimed speech at the rally in London in 1912 that launched the Irish Protestant Home Rule movement. After Easter 1916 he was appointed Crown Solicitor for the City and West Riding of Cork, and put the Crown case at the inquest into the murder of the Republican Lord Mayor of Cork. Having been thrice sentenced to death by the IRA, he became a defense lawyer for dissident Republicans after the Civil War. In 1927 he was elected to the Dáil as an Independent candidate. Jasper Wolfe was clever, convivial, and hard drinking. Personally fearless, he was cherished for the stories of his exploits. More seriously, he stood for an Ireland at peace and at ease with itself. ‘This book tells of the amazing relation between the Wolfe and Collins families.”” – Irish American News
