The Tresilian Family of County Cork - Landowners and Bandon Merchants

The Tresilian Family of County Cork is our first publication which is now available at Amazon. The family came to County Cork from Cornwall in the early 1600s. Our study focuses on how they were affected by the economic developments of the time, how they integrated into the community, amassing considerable land holdings and building up successful businesses only for many of the family members to see their wealth evaporate by the mid 1800s. They had all disappeared from Bandon and the surrounding area by the time of the 1901 census. The Tresilians married into similar Bandon merchant families such as Popham, Sullivan, Allman, Coughlan, Belcher, Bernard, Seymour, Jagoe and Jenkins.

My great, great grandfather was apparently from Bandon but moved to Canada in the early 1800s. His name was James Loane and he married Mary Eddy. I've just found this out and have been exploring Bandon history.

My distant grandfather was Richard Coughlan and was born in Bandon in 1805. I can't seem to find anything about him though, If you can help please email me at
Thank you.
