History of the Barnane estate in County Tipperary, Ireland together
with information about the 200 known Carden descendants of the
original Jonathan Carden of Barnane, born about 1675. A prologue
Barnane before the Cardens gives some background about Cromwell's
savage suppression in 1650 of the Irish Rebellion, and tells how
Barnane was confiscated from the O'Meagher family which held the
land from the earl of Ormond. Barnane was granted to an
'adventurer' and was leased in 1701 to Jonathan Carden, eldest son
of John Carden of Templemore. A biography is given of each of the
seven Cardens who held Barnane in succession until the last died in
1932. The most notorious of these was John Rutter Carden
(1811-1866). Though he was a prominent and wealthy landlord and a
Deputy Lieutenant of the county, he was convicted in 1854 of
attempting to abduct a certain Miss Eleanor Arbuthnot, and
sentenced to two years' imprisonment.
