between William Wolfe of Toomela, gent., and Elizabeth Gillman 2nd daughter of John Gillman of Milane. Other parties = Thomas Hungerford of Cahermore. Thomas Gillman of Milane, John Wolfe of Cooleraheen. This deed cites a lease of Aug 9 1790 between Cornelius Townsend of Drumihilly and William Wolfe the Elder and William Wolfe Jnr, then of Cooleraheen. Also another lease of June 24 1820 between the above William Wolfe and William Wolfe the Elder Coolerheen. Cites the will of Wm Wolfe the Elder of July 25 1822........deals with lands of Cashel.

Notes: Quote from professional genealogist, Thomas O'Leary, letter Sept 12 1991, to D. Dunn:
" It would appear from this document that William’s father and grandfather were both named William and from Cooleraheen (in Castleventry civil Parish, West of Clonakilty). It also appears that William the Elder's will dates from 1822 and deals with lands of Cashel. This will has not survived the burning of the Public Records Office in 1922"
