, eld. daughter. http://www.lisheencastle.com/history5.htm Re: Lisheen Castle The Land League, although then suppressed by the government, was still a fairly powerful force. The local branch prevailed on Lloyd's workers to stop working. It was in the spring of the year 1882, and Lloyd would have got no ploughing, tilling, and manuring done on his lands, if it had not been for Mrs Mary Power Lalor of Longochard, who herself was being boycotted at the time, due to an eviction she had effected through her agent, George Ryan of Inch. Her working staff had remained on the whole loyal to her, and refused to leave their employment although the local League had tried to get them to do so. Her 'plucky men', as she called them, did the work at Lisheen that spring. It was one of the most intense and divisive times for the parish community, with deeply provocative events happening locally in quick succession, such as the arrest of Tom Collier of Templetouhy under the Coercion Act, the sale of his cattle, the eviction of the widow Bourke by the Power Lalors, the building of a Land league house in the parish, probably the first such one in North Tipperary, and the attempted boycott of the Power Lalors and Lloyd of Lisheen. Although the attempted boycott of Lisheen was ineffectual, the tenants under threat of eviction by Lloyd held out and in due course got their rents reduced by arbitration under the terms of the 1881 Land Act. As well as the campaign for fair rents and security of tenure, the 1880s also saw the growth of the campaign to improve the lot of the agricultural workers, most of whom were living in wretched conditions. They and their families were the hardest hit by the economic depression of the time. Charles Lloyd was in no way amenable to the scheme for the building of new cottages on half acres of land for the local laborers, at least as far as his own land was concerned. He blankly refused to give any of his land for a labourer's cottage, nor would he allow any of his tenant farmers to do so, even if they wished it. He declared that he was bound by his settlement, whatever that meant. Charles Henry was then in a third marriage, from which there were seven children. His third wife was Louisa Jackson, a Canadian, and a cousin of his first wife. He died in 1887, and by then all his family had emigrated to various countries, such as England, Canada, South Africa, New Zealand and Australia. He bequeathed Lisheen and its lands to his eldest son, Charles Edward, who was born in 1854, and whose mother was Anna Langley of Killenure. The new owner of Lisheen appears to have set off for Australia sometime after his father's death. According to family tradition the property was in financial difficulties, and Charles Edward hoped to make his fortune in Australia and then return to put Lisheen on its feet again. He settled in Melbourne, and it was probably there that he got married to Louisa Dorcet Schultze, who was of German extraction. His step mother, Louisa, continued to live in Lisheen for a few years. Then she sold off all the furniture and effects in the castle, (they must have been willed to her by her husband), and went to live in England. http://www.irishtimes.com/life-and-style/homes-and-property/fine-art-a ntiques/tiger-skin-from-colonial-india-and-portrait-of-tipperary-phila nthropist-in-country-house-contents-sale-1.1550629#.Uk_fdDwvgT8.via http://fonsiemealy.ie/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/Catalogue-FINAL.pdf
