There are references to the Coughlans, this branch were Protestant from around 1600 associated with Hulls and Boyle. Jeremy/Jeremiah married Susan Evanson of Gearhameen (Durrus Court), Durrus was Attorney, Seneschal, agent with Andrew Crotty for Boyle/Devonshire Estates in East Cork/Waterford. The Carrigmanus Coughlans are probably ancestors of one branch of the Durrus Dukelows, from Clashadoo. They are also probably ancestors of the Carrigaline Coughlans who may have been given a small estate by the Earl of Cork.
The Limricks mentioned in litigation with the Coughlans are prevalent in Co. Cork with Catholic as well as Protestant branches.
