TitlePapers of the Flanegan family of Woburn Lodge, Galway, and Essex, United Kingdom
DescriptionThe collection contains over 800 items, mainly relating to the Galway estate of Henry Flanegan. The papers include copies of documents naming a James Flanagan of Eyrecourt from the 1790s, but most of the collection relates to his descendant Henry Flanegan, who was a surgeon. The estate house was Woburn Lodge, near Eyrecourt. There is a great deal of legal material, including wills and other testamentary documents, leases, and correspondence with solicitors. The testamentary documents include genealogies and notes of family births, marriages and deaths which would appear to have been written by family members to assist in legal cases and inheritance. Much of the legal correspondence is from C. H. Denroche, a Dublin solicitor who looked after the administration of the Galway estate for Henry Flanegan. The later correspondence is with Henry's daughter, who lived in Essex, after his death in 1933. The estate management material, which mostly dates from the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century, includes leases, rentals, and correspondence.
