Some Rent receipts, Kenmare Estate 1741-46, Bantry Beara Area, William Sullivan, Florence Sullivan, Rev. Thomas Miller, Mort Sullivan, Gilbert Mellifont Donemark, Michael Murphy Newtown and Mills, Beversham Harman Laheran, Patrick Galwey Gurteenroe, Daniel Cronin Gortdarrug Cooloum, Thomas Hutchins Ballylickey, John Riordan Ballylickey, Patrick Minihane Donemark, Richard Tobin Mills Donemark, Ards Coomleigh, Denis Leary, John Harman.

This is a selection of the rentals mentioned in the Casey Collection. In the main they are substantial tenants who would have worked some of the land themselves and in many cases sub let.

The Kenmare Estate was the Brownes/Herberts and was one of the few to remain in Catholic hands during the Penal Laws. It was probably O’Sullivan before the Confiscations.
