There's always conjecture about the actual translation of townland names and I don't claim to have any knowledge above and beyond that which has already been quoted. But given my family comes from Tamnaharry (sic) there is an alternative definition.

Rather than ' The green field of the pillar stone' I think that ' The grassy upland of the memorial stone' is probably a better interpretation but I wouldn't claim that it is in any way definitive.

Before the land became owned by the tenant farmers it was owned by Edward Trevor & Hugh Magennis. It was subsequently leased to Dudley Garvey in 1618. Beyond that I have no idea apart from the 12 acres that eventually came into the ownership of my family in the late 19th century.
