1600

Civil survey
Down Survey Maps.

Alexander Devereux owns Gardamus Great.
Marked next to his name is Bishops, Quare.
I think this means they are unsure if it belongs to the bishop or Alexander.
The last abbot of Dunbrody was an Alexander Devereux,died 1562?
He provided lands to his relatives in and around Mayglass.
There are documents relating to the return of these lands to the church.
Sleedagh  Polmanagh  and Heavenstown are mentioned.
In the original grant of Sledah there is mention of a watermill 1522.
No mention of Gardamus Mill in the survey or on the Down survey maps.
Sleedagh mill is marked as ruined in the Civil survey index for mills.1654.


1800

Griffiths valuation.
Griffiths House Books.
Revision Books.
Field Books.
Tithe applotment.
Osi maps.

Mill leased by Patrick Connor , landlord E.M Daniell and partners.

The landlord is Edward Maxwell Danniel---   Married  Emma Isabella Ferrers.
21/7/1825 at St James Westminster.

Edwards father is James Evance Danniel -----Married  Lucy Butler. Daughter of Peregrine Butler.
Emma Ferrers was the daughter of Thomas Ferrers of Cowes Isle of Wight.

The Daniell Family are pretty wealthy by what i can tell, with ties to the East India Company, and a naval/military background, Daniell & Co

Found Rev  Edmund Ferrers in a document, A return of the number of acres belonging to the church in Ireland.

1824 He leases the town-lands of Gardamus Great,and the others that are marked as Bishops land back in the down survey, from the Bishop of Ferns and leighlin.

Caroline Mary Young married Rev Edmund Ferrers
" rector of Cheriton, Hampshire who
married Caroline Mary YOUNGE on 24/4/1787 at St Ann, Soho, London.
Caroline's father was Reverend Edward YOUNGE DD, Bishop of Leighlin and
Ferns."

Edward Maxwell Daniel married Edmund Ferrers daughter Isabella.
Edmund's wife dies so I am assuming he left his property to his daughter and then it passed into the daniells family.
They must of acquired it from the church around 1830s because in a previous document 1824 Edmund Ferrers leases the mill from the lord bishop of ferns.
The Coclough papers from tintern abbey have some items relating to gardamus.
A deed dated 1770 for gardamus great is in that collection.
And some other things in that collection are of interest.
