John Irwin Esq. 1762

Edit

John Irwin Esq. of Camlin (1762-1842) was the son of John Irwin & Rebecca Phibbs (see Rushfield). "Eriwine" and "Erwinne" are old English first names, derived from the "ir afon" meaning "green water" in old Celtic languages.

SEAT AT CAMLIN

In 1814 Camlin (parish of Eastersnow, Boyle) was the seat of John Irwin (1762–1842).

In 1837, at the time of the 1st Ordnance Survey, Camlin was being leased by John Irwin from the estate of Guy Lloyd and was described as "a good house of three stories". Lewis recorded Camlin as the seat of John Irwin Esq. and that the parochial school of Estersnow, under the patronage of Mrs Irwin, of Camlin, afforded instruction to about 80 children in 1837. 

Lewis also recorded Granny as the seat of Thomas Irwin Esq. (In March 1852, the estate of Thomas Irwin, the elder, at Granny East, barony of Boyle, was offered for sale in the Encumbered Estates court. This included a "comfortable residence" depicted in the sale notice.)

MARRIAGES

John Irwin Esq.'s first marriage was to Mary Ormsby.  In the winter of 1798, John Irwin Esq. married  Elizabeth O Malley (1770-1840), who was a direct descendant of the pirate queen Gráinne Mhaol aka Grace O'Malley.
