There are other Kelly' of course in any number of professions.
In Griffith Valuation of 1852 there are 625 Kelly's. I looked at the Thomas's did not find many with IN FEE - owned their own land and those that did was very little.
Same with Edward, many of both leasing from the Marquis of
Kildare. Note - look for towns mentioned eg: Maddenstown,
Monastereven as possibilities for the name Kelly.www.askaboutireland.ie
You would be looking for a Kelly with a lot of tenants.
Captns. were often given places on boards of Poor Law Unions, were magistrates or Justice of the Peace.

9 March 1814 'indented release'.(this is the year of the death of your Edward.
An indenture could be on property. I have seen an indenture from 1929 for Wexford with a list of all those living on the estate, which included the Town of
Enniscorthy and surrounds - hundreds of rental properties. Part of the requiement of getting ready for a sale of the Estate to show prospective buyers.
