Rt.Hon. Denis Bowes 
Daly
c. 1745 - 1821


Rt.Hon. Denis Bowes 
Daly
, of Jamaica sq., Loughrea. He inherited the property of Thomas(The Maw) Coghlan, uncle of his wife. Shortly before his death in 1821, he sold the Coghlan propety to various people incl. Thoams Bernard MP for King's co. The estates, which were ordered to be sold by Chancery Decree of 3 Jul 1799 carried heavy moprttgages going back to 1750 and amounting to £29,000. FREEMEN OF LIMERICK 1746-1836 Daly Bowes Denis Esqre, Dalystown, Co Galway 13/10/1788 Charlotte Bronte - and her association with Banagher Saturday, 6th November I have already referred to Banagher's Cuba Court (now demolished) in an article on Banagher's Royal School. The house is said to date from the 1730s and may have been constructed by one George Frazer, a former Governor of Cuba and perhaps to a design of Sir Edward Lovett Pearce. The house was unroofed in 1946 because like so many Irish houses it was ruined by the policy on rates at the time. If the abolition of rates in 1977 was disastrous for the National Debt and local government at least, it may have contributed to the saving of many Irish houses. Towards the end of the eighteenth century Cuba was the home of Denis Bowes Daly. Bowes Daly was a prominent member of the local ascendancy. Prior to his death in 1821 he had leased Cuba Court to the Army Medical Board as of 1804 on a 61-year lease. The building was but little used as a hospital and the Medical Board was quite happy to give it up to the Commissioners of Education for the purpose of the Royal School. In 1819 the school had some forty pupils. The then headmaster, Thomas Morris, was succeeded by Revd. Alan Bell in 1822. Bell purchased the headmastership from Morris for £1,000. Alan Bell was at the time master of a classical school in Downpatrick and was the son of a County Antrim farmer. He graduated from T.C.D. in 1814. One of his assistant teachers in the late 1830s was Arthur Nicholls, a nephew and a past pupil of Banagher school. Alan Bell died in 1839 and was succeeded by Revd. James Hamilton. After a succession of school masters James Adamson Bell, son of Revd. Alan Bell, was appointed in 1848 - at the age of 21. The later agreed, at an inquiry at Tullamore in 1855, that he had not the experience at the time to run the establishment. He graduated from T.C.D. with a B.A. in 1847 and in 1852 became a clergyman. The school improved under his management and had 36 pupils in 1852. http://www.offalyhistory.com/content/reading_resources/famous_people/b ronte_charlotte.htm
