Quinsborough House, Co.Clare

Quinsborough House, townland of Parteen, St.Patrick's par, Co.Clare (near Ardnacrusha, just across the Shannon N of Limerick city).

Sometimes "Quinborough".
Also written "Quinsboro".





Quinsborough House, when the Rahilly/Humphreys family lived there (1898 to 1909).
P106 listing says photo c.1908.
This is [P106/498(1)]. See larger and full size.
See wider print of same picture, but poorer quality. Image 7115 in Humphrys glass negatives. Light-adjusted. See original.
Wider print shows what looks like flagpole on LHS.




Quinsborough House, Co.Clare, is on land leased by Henry Widenham in 1712.
The house was built 1767 by his grandson George Quin.
It was inherited by his Taylour descendants.
They changed their surname to Quin 1813.
Quin sold the house to the Honan (NOT Horan) family by deed dated 27 Apr 1832 [Deed, 1898].
KILQUANE in [Lewis, 1837] says it was then the residence of Martin Honan.
Honan is listed there in [Griffiths Valuation, 1852].

It was bought by Ellen Mangan 1898 after the death of her husband Richard Rahilly.
Ellen and her dau Anna Rahilly lived there.
Her other dau Nell Humphreys and her family moved in with them when her husband Dr. David Humphreys took ill, apparently moved in 1900.
David died 1903.
Ellen died 1903.
See Childhood photos at Quinsborough.
The family left Quinsborough and moved to Dublin, c.Mar 1909.
Think they didn't sell Quinsborough immediately.
(todo) See letter of 6 Apr 1909 [P106/169] from John Ryan, the new occupant of Quinsborough.
Aodogán once met the occupant of Quinsborough, who said he had title deeds that showed "your aunt" [Anno] "still owned Quinsborough in 1920".
The family must have kept Quinsborough, leased it to new occupants, only sold it when built Ailesbury Rd 1920.

The house survives today.
