|Description:||A branch of the Elwood family settled at Kilkeeran Castle, in the parish of Kilmainebeg, barony of Kilmaine, count Mayo, in the mid 17th century. Thomas Elwood is variously described as of Kilkeeran, Loughmask and Cloonkerry in early 18th century documents. He leased lands held from the See of Tuam and from others. By the 19th century his descendants were settled at Strandhill in the parish of Cong and at Annefield House in the parish of Kilcommon. Another branch of this family had lands in county Roscommon and they retained Kilkeeran and the lands in the parish of Kilmainebeg.|
