1600s

The Quin family settles in Adare. The first recorded member of the family in the village was Donagh Quin (d. 1671) He was buried in the Franciscan Abbey, a sign that he was a highly-placed and well-respected member of the community. At the time of his death, his landholdings were relatively modest, producing about £100 a year in income. While this was a respectable living for the time, it was very far from a grand estate.
