Burlington is the successor in title to the Richard Boyle, Earl of Cork, he probably acquired some of the Mizen lands by mortgage from the O’Mahonys.

Tonson is a descendant on the illegitimate line of Sir Richard Hull of Lemcon.

Jeremiah/Jeremy Coughlan is an Attorney Seneschal of Dungarvan agent to the Earl of Cork/Burlingtons and from Carrigmanus his wife is Susanna Evanson from Coolnalong, Durrus. He and her brother Nathaniel Evanson were leasing Gearhameen and other townlands in Durrus from the Bernards of Bandon in the 1720s. The Coughlan line is probably related to Frances Coughlan who married Thomas Dukelow c 1810 and then moved from Crottees to Clashadoo.
