Of those names the JP do not appear on mainstream lists but they are not exhaustive.  John Thomas Phillips was of the family who came to Durrus when Lord Bandon recovered possession of thais part of his estate c 1850.  Kathleen Dukelow who donated Philips Green to the people of Durrus some years ago and part financed it was of the family on her mother’s side.   Captain Thomas was from Cornwall and a serial mining entrepreneur.  He is likely to be living in Dunmanus rather than Rooska.
