Peter Daly

???? - 1846

Claimant or beneficiary


Awarded the compensation as owner of Daly's Grove in Manchester Jamaica. The compensation certificate was originally given to George Williams: the Commissioners then approached James Daly of Leadenhall Street seeking return of the certificate from Williams after a power of attorney from Peter Daly was submitted by 'Mr Wright the banker.'

  1. Peter Daly, son of Darby Daly and Teresa O'Flanagan. Lived at Daly's Grove Jamaica and Daly's Grove, County Galway. Married Bridget Louisa McEvoy in 1806. 2 sons, James Peter (1808-81) and Pater Paul (1812-1881). Died 1846.

  2. 'The Dalys of Dalysgrove....settled in east Galway at the end of the seventeenth century. In the early nineteenth century the senior branch of the family moved to Castledaly and the younger son Peter resided at Dalysgrove.'

Daly's Grove is not listed until 1826. Between 1821 and 1825 Peter Daly is shown against Friendship in Manchester with a comparable number of enslaved people (c. 120 or so). By 1831 and 1833 it is shown against P. Mahon and Patrick Mahon.

  2. Landed Estates Database Estates: Daly (Dalysgrove) [accessed 15/01/2012]. A fragment extracted from Edmund Emmet O'Daly's 'History of the O'Dalys' appears to contradict this, saying that 'Peter Daly of Galway...settled in Jamaica about 1782, where he distinguished himself by outstanding civil, philanthropic and religious activities. He returned to Ireland and purchased Corbally from the Blakes in 1820, renaming it 'Castledaly'. He obtained Dalysgrove from Frank [sic, = Francis] Daly his brother, in 1828. Peter Daly died in 1844.' [accessed 15/01/2012].
