The general picture of 19th century Ireland is one wracked by poverty. This is true but there was also a significant middle class. This is reflected in the copies of wills which have survived.

Re Lord Bandon thee ws acloe relationship between the Bernards and Evansons. When the Evanson got into financial trouble around 1710 the Durrus estate was sold to Francis Bernard of Bandon who rented it back. That lease expired around 1850.

Re Sullivan Dunmanway, probably one of the Sullivans small Protestant Landlords likely related to Wrights lawyers of Clonakilty. They had interests in land at Cashelane outside Dunbeacon

West Cork History

Beginning of Political Machine: Disputed Election 1841, Box from West Division of West Carbery, Co. Cork. In some case no vote is registered the person is placed in the relevant camp by an educated guess.

The demarcation between Catholic/Nationalist, Protestant/Pre Union is clear. However in looking at detailed genealogies there is much blurring as a result of intermarriage.

There were comments in the later successful election of Rickard Deasy Q.C. of Clonakilty (later Attorney General for Ireland) that his success was down to Timothy O’Donovan J..P, from O’Donovan’s Cove getting his tenants to Cork to exercise their vote.

West Cork History

Will of Alexander O’Donovan, Squince, Skibbereen, West Cork, Various Townlands, Farm at Myross, Fishery, Salt Store, Fishing Boat, Possible Grand Father-in-Law of Timothy O’Donovan, Justice of The Peace, and Grandfather of Rickard Donovan, First Catholic Clerk of the Peace for Co. Cork 1838 since the 17th Century.

The listing of townlands is either archaic or difficult to transcribe as is often the case in old memorials.

The fishery element is interesting.  One of his grand daughters  married Timothy O’Donovan was clearly independently wealthy building a fine mansion at O’Donovan’s Cove, Durrus.  In his written evidence to the Fishing enquiry in Bantry 1836 he has a remarkable grasp of the fishing business.   There are various historical references to branches of the O’Donovan family being involved as investors in the fishing business in the 18th century.

He bequeaths the estate to his son a Doctor.  Rickard…

1805-1818, Fragments of Dunderow Church Records, Rector 1815-1839, Rev. Morgan O’Donovan, Chieftain of The O’Donovan of Clancahill.

He assumed the title on the death of Lieutenant General Richard O’Donovan of Bawnlahan, Leap.  This did find universal approval wit the extended family as evidenced by the papers of Dr. John O’Donovan (Rev.Grave Papers), Royal Irish Academy.
