Biographical / Historical Note
The Devon Estate in Newcastle West was granted to Sir William Courtenay, Knight of Powerham in Devonshire, on 23 September 1591. The family held the title Earls of Devon and the land in Limerick eventually comprised 85,000 acres. It was held by the Courtenays, until the sale of the estate in 1908 under the 1903 Land Act, when practically all the lands of the Devon Estate were sold. The last agents on the Courtenays in Newcastle West were the Curling family who were agents from 1848 until the sale of the Estate when they bought the castle building and some of the surrounding land under the sale.
