The family line of the Walshes of Crannagh, Roscommon include the marriage of Patrick Walsh and Margaret Hussey in 1787. Margaret was from Mulhussey, County Meath. The varied arms (above) include, on the upper left quartiles, the chevron and three pheons of Walsh of Kilkenny, and the cross and three saltired bars of Hussey.

Walsh of the Mountain, in the County of Kilkenny, is well known to be the most Ancient & Illustrious family of that Name in the Kingdom of Ireland. Walter Walsh [married to Sheffield] of that House's fourth son was the first of the following family who settled near Athlone, Co. Roscommon, whose name was Richard.
Richard marryed Margt. O'Connor one of Rogr. O'Conner of Ballycaher's family. Their son Willm. marryed Winifred Kelly of Behogh near Ballinsloe. Their son Walter marryed Giles McLoughlin of Hall, County Westmeath. Their son Patrick marryed. Ellis Tully, daughter to a Glazier near Athlone. Their son Richd. marryed Mary Walsh, daughter to Waltr. Walsh of Mout. tallot. Their son, the present Patk. Walsh marryed Margt. daughter to John Hussey of Moynewe.
The above family have been tents. in possession & are still so at Crannaghbeg & containing about three hundred acres, upwards of one hundred & twenty years. Under my family they have been always worthy, respectable men, and I know that Waltr. Walsh father to the first mentioned Patk. had more stock & lands than any man in the Barony of Athlone in his days, had some real property part of which is still in his family, & was deemed the most wealthy farmer in ye neighborhood of Athlone. There remains to this day a judgment debt due by my grandfather John Moore to him for which my cousins O'Sullivan of White Haven, Berminghan of Kilfyan, Purcell of Crumlin & myself continue to pay interest to his family at the rate of seven p. cent.
