There were two Doctor Knots that practised at the County Infirmary at the Mall, Castlebar, where Mayo County Council is now located.
The first Doctor Knott came from Dublin & married a Miss O'Malley, a descendent of Grace O'Malley (Granuaile) and niece of Major General George O'Malley whose statue is in the grounds of Christ Church, Castlebar. He was appointed Surgeon to the County Infirmary & Physician to the County Jail. He practised for forty years at the Infirmary & he died aged 64 years in October 1871.
His son, Dr. Middleton O'Malley Knott succeeded him & upon qualifying as a doctor in 1864, he was appointed medical doctor to the Militia in Castlebar. He quit shortly afterwards & practised in England for a few years. He came back to C/bar & took over from his father & practised for nearly 50 years. He was also medical officer to the troops, the jail, and the police and had an extensive private practice.
He died in Nov.1920 aged 82 years & was buried in the Church of Ireland graveyard in Castlebar. One of his sons also practised as a doctor but not as far as I know in Castlebar.
