Lynch's estates were put up for sale in the Encumbered Estates' Court by his sisters and co-heiresses and were taken over by John Campbell, 1st Baron Campbell and previously Lord High Chancellor of Ireland, to whom they were heavily mortgaged. In May 1856 another estate at Lydacan in the barony of Dunmore, was advertised for sale by the co-heiresses of Andrew H. Lynch.
