In the late 18th century the Nesbitt family resided at Tubberdaly, Edenderry, county Offaly. They also had land in the parishes of Kilglass and Termonbarry, barony of Ballintober North, county Roscommon and in the parish of Donaghpatrick, county Galway. In the 1830s John Cornwall of Dublin was the agent for the county Galway estate. William George Downing Nesbitt of Tubberdaly held land in the parishes of Kilbreedy Minor and Tankardstown, barony of Coshma, county Limerick at the time of Griffith's Valuation. His sister, Miss Catherine Nesbitt and his brother-in-law,Count Susi [de Lusi] owned 1,529 acres in county Galway, 3,641 acres in county Roscommon, 620 acres in county Limerick and other estates in counties Londonderry, Offaly, Antrim and Kildare in the 1870s. Hughes writes that a Mr Finnegan of Raheen was agent to the Nesbitts in county Galway and that their lands in the parish of Donaghpatrick had passed to the Armstrongs by the beginning of the 20th century.
