This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 

to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 

to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 

are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other maiginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the

[Palliser.] 
1700 to 1835. Aghada, Corkbeg, Inch, Rostellan, and Titeskin, 
were held as the union of Aghada, in commendam with the 
Bishoprick of Cloyne, until the death of Bishop Brinkley, on 
14th September, 1835. 

The following account of the manner in which Aghada was 
granted to the Bishops of Cloyne, is taken from the manuscripts 
of Bishop Bennet :— 



▲GHADA. [OLOTKB. 

" The revenues of the bishoprick appear to have been at a 
yery low ebb in 1698, soon after the succession of Bp. Pooley 
to the see. The long lease of sixty years awarded by Bram- 
liall to the Fitzgerald &mily was not yet expired ; and, indeed, 
the time of its expiring was a subject of dread rather than 
hope, as bringing the certainty of a suit at law along with it. 
Lord Inchiqnin claimed to hold the best farms on that estate, 
not under that lease, but in his own right, as heir to the Fitz- 
geralds. The fine estate of Ealmaclenin, with those of Inchi- 
quin, Eilvagh, and Chor Abbey, were entirely lost, and that of 
iBallybane, tho' the right of the see to it had been often allowed, 
was in a hopeless state. The markets, mill, and other rights 
of the manor were a daily subject of dispute. And, to com- 
plete the whole, all hopes of Donoghmore were just extinguished 
by the determination of the Commissioners against the claim 
of the church. The whole estate of the bishoprick, both 
spiritual and temporal, produced no more than £500 per an. ; 
and with this expensive law suits were to be maintained 
against Lord Inchiquin, Sir St. John Broderick, Colonel Corker, 
of Ballymaloe, and others, some of which suits had been run- 
ning on for near thirty years. 

" Under these circumstances Bishop Pooley, who was always 
attentive to the interests of his see, was encouraged to petition 
the £arl of Rochester, then Lord Lieutenant, stating that Cloyne 
was the worst endowed of all the Irish Bishopricks, so that 
before 1641, the Wardenship of Toughal had been added to it 
to make up for its deficiency of revenue ; that since that period 
the see had been deprived of some very considerable estates - 
that in parallel cases in the English Church it was uaxisA to 
permit a Bishop to hold in commendam some other fit ecclesi- 
astical preferment ; and that the union of Aghada which was 
adjoining and convenient to the Bishop's place of residence, 
being now vacant by the death of Mr. John Mascall, and in 
the sole gift of the Bishop himself, he humbly prayed his Ma- 
jesty to sdlow the said union of Aghada to be held in commen- 
dam with the bishoprick of Cloyne, as it might seem good to 
hiB royal pleasure. This petition of the Bishop was granted, 
and he became B.ector of the union of Aghada, consisting of the 
rectories and vicarages of Aghada, Corkbeg, Rostillan, Tites- 
kin, and Inch, which has now gone with the see for upwards 
of 100 years. 

" By the judicious improvement of this fortunate opportunity, 
Bp. Pooley laid the foundation of an increasing revenue to the 
Bishops of Cloyne, which has made more than amends for all 
the estates they have lost. The commodious situation of the 
union, which includes almost the whole peninsula between 
Cloyne and the sea, and the rise from the increase of tillage 
in all the livings in the south of Ireland, has made it produc-

tire liejond any idea thai could have been formed at the time. 
In 1700, when first held with the see, it was worth about £400 
per annum ; in the time of Bp. Agar, 1767, it rose to £800 ; 
in 1793 Bp. Woodward had increased it to £1,100 ; Bp. Bennet, 
in 1801, made of it full £2,000 ; and ten or twelve years after 
it was valued by the Proctor at £3,400.'* 

1710. 9th Anne, chapter 12, sec. 7. A new parish church 
is to be built in a more convenient place, at Aghada, in Gloyne. 
[Acts of Parliament.] 

1774. The Bishop holds also in commendam the union of 
Aghadda, value £600 per an., consisting of the following 
parishes, viz., the rec. and vie. of Corkbeg, the rec and vie. of 
Aghadda, the rec and vie of Inch, otherwise Ninch ; the rec. 
and vie. of Rostillian, and the rec. and vie. of Titeskin. Ag-

** Id 1813, some business relatire to this liying of Aghada 
happening to come before the Privy Council, the Grown 
Officers, misled by the circumstance of its having been so long 
held with the bishoprick, and regularly granted to the new 
bishop at every vacancy, were much inclined to consider it as 
a Grown Hying. But on my copying out the parts of Bp. 
Pooley*s memorial to Lord Rochester as above quoted, and re- 
ferring to the Privy Gouncil Books for the original, they im- 
mediately gave up the question. Such is the advantage of

Richard Paradise, esq., a French Protestant refugee) was bom 
at Youghal, on 11th June, 1714, and entered T.C.D. as a 
Pensioner on 6th July, 1733, and graduated in 1738. 

He was ordained Deacon, on 2l8t December, 1740, and Priest, 
on 15th March, 1741, by Bishop Berkeley, at Cloyne. On 22nd 
December, 1741, he was licensed to the curacy of Middleton, 
which he held until 1753. From 1753 to 1764, he was Curate 
of Youghal. In 1754 he was appointed Chaplain to the Earl 
of Hillsborough. From 1759 to 1764, he was R. V. Carrigro- 
hanebeg, and from 1764 to his death, on 13th April, 1793, was 
V. Ballyclogh and Castlemagner. 

He married, firstly, in June, 1742, his cousin, Elisabeth, 
youngest dau. of Rev. Walter Atkin (Treasurer of Cloyne, q. v.); 
and by her (who was buried in the Atkin family vault, at 
Middleton, on 30th January, 1756,) had issue &Ye ^ons and 
three daughters. Three of the sons died infants, and one (the 
third eldest, Walter Atkins Hayman) died without legitimate 
issue. All the daughters died unmarried. Samuel, his fourth 
son, succeeded to the family inheritance, much diminished by 
the alienation of the greater part thereof to the illegitimate 
issue of his brother Walter. Samuel was bom in 1753, and in 
1779 took out a diploma at Edinburgh as a Physician. He 
married, in 1782, Melian, dau. and co-heiress of Matthew Jones, 
esq.. Collector, of Youghal, and by her had issue, inter alios, 
a son, Matthew Hayman, heir to his father, who was bom in 
1789, and married, in 1816, Helen, second dau. of Arundel 
Hill, esq., of Doneraile. By this marriage Matthew Hayman 
had issue, inter alios, an eldest son, Samuel Hayman, now 
Rector of Ardnegihy, Cork, q. v.

1757f married a second wife, Elisabeth, dau. of Frank Wilson, 
esq., of Youghal, but bad bj her, who was buried in Youghal, 
on 6th Oct., 1776, no issue. 

The family of Hayman, Hejman, or Aymon (as the name is 
spelled in the well-Kuown early French romance — *' ffistoire 
dea quaJtre JUs Ayrrums^ tres- Nobles et tres-vaillans Chevaliers**) 
is of undoubted antiquity. Sir B. Burke, in bis Landed Gentry 
(article Hatman, of Youghal) gives the £amily a Norman origin, 
and describes their genealogical roll as embracing a period of 
more than nine centuries. He traces them downwards, gene- 
ration after generation, from the year 931 to the present time. 
Deeds, wills, and family letters, from the reign of Charles L, 
are in the muniment chest of Rev. Samuel Hayman, the repre- 
sentative of the Irish branch, who is sixth in descent from 
George Heyman, or Hayman, of Minehead, Somersetshire, who 
migrated to Ireland in 1629. George Heyman was grandson 
of Robert or Roger Heyman, who, to avoid religious persecu- 
tion in Queen Mary's reign, fled from Kent, and found refuge 
in the west of England, where numerous lines, owing their 
origin to him, may yet be found. A baronetcy of the creation, 
12th August, 1641, existed in the parent house, in Kent, until 
20th Nov., 1808, when the Rev. Sib Hbnbt Fix Hetman, the 
fifth baronet, expired without issue male. (Vide Burke's 
Extinct BaronetcifS, article Hetman of Somebfibld )

estate, yet his soul seemed much larger than his fortune. The 
master has an house and £40 per an. salary. 

** The late Earl of Orrery gave 15 acres of land, worth £1 1 
per an., for the encouragement of a charter working school, 
near this town, erected for the reception of 40 children. The 
building cost £350 ; it was opened on the 18th of April, 1748, 
and 20 children, 10 of each sex, admitted, being completely 
clothed. On the following Sunday a sermon was preached on 
the occasion, by the Rer. Dean Bruce, who gave the children 
bibles and other useful books, and a subscription to the school. 
The house properly supplied with necessaries ; the kitchen 
and potato gardens are well planted ; the land enclosed with 
quickset hedges, and ornamented with trees. 

'* In this towQ is a decent parish church, erected by the first

Earlshall, in Scotland {vide Robertson's Baronage of Scotland), 
who, by his wife Helen, dau. of Patrick, 7th Lord Grbt, had

was a steady loyalist, and was taken prisoner by the Parliamen- 
tarians at the battle of Worcester, in 1651. He came to 
Ireland, and settled in Bandon, county Cork, in 1654. He 
married Mary, dau. of Captain Brookes, of the '^Swallow" Sloop of 
War, and niece of Jonathan Saul, esq. Bj her he had issue 
a son, Saul Bruce, esq., who was twice Provost of Bandon. 
Saul married Mary, dau. of George Crofts, esq., of Church town, 
county Cork, and by her had five sons and two daughters, 11 
of whom died without issue, except the second son, Jonathan, 
who was P. Ballyhay. 

Jonathan (the last named) was bom in county Cork, in 1681, 
and when seventeen years old, was entered a Pensioner of 
T.C.D. on 19th January, 1698; and became a Scholar in 1702, 
and graduated subsequently a.m. and d.d. 

He was ordained Deacon on 23rd Sept, 1705, and Priest on

1719 to 1758 he was P. Ballyhay and R. V. Ardskeagli. From 
1721 to 1758 he was K Shandrum, and from 1724 to his 
death, at Charleville, on 27th August, 1758, was Dean of 
Eilfenora. 

He married in 1709 [M.L. Cloyne, 20th April] Mary, dan. 
of Rev. Lewis Prythergh, P. Effin, Limerick, and by her had 
issue eight sons and three daughters, Mary, wife of Samuel 
Hobson, esq., of Youghal ; Sarah, wife of R«uben Roberts, esq., 
of CharleviUe ; and GEitherine, Mrs. de la Hoyde. 

The Dean's eldest son, Lewis, was born at CharleviUe, in 
1710, and in 1725, when sixteen years old, entered T.C.D. He 
was afterwards d.d. He was ordained Priest on 23rd Sept., 1 734,

Elisabeth Roberts, of CharleviUe, [Cloyne, M.B.,] by whom he 
had issue a daughter, Mary-Elisabeth, who was privately bap- 
tised in 1 739. [CharleviUe parish register.] He appears to have 
bad no other issue, and his daughter probably died an infant. 
In his wUl (dated 22nd Oct., 1778, with a codicU of 18th Feb., 
1779,) Dr. Lewis Bruce bequeathes <£50 to the poor of CharlevUle

Rev. Thomas Spratt, of Stratton, on the Yosse, county Somerset, 
by his wife, Elisabeth, dau. of Rev. Robert Cooke, Minister of 
the Island of ? Kerry. 

Devereux was the first of his family who came to Ireland. 
He held the parishes of Membury and W^ithecombe, Exon, in 
Devonshire. In 1640 he came to Ireland, and was, from 1641 
. to 1664, Chancellor of Ardfert; and from 1661 to 1663, P. 
Brigowne. He was also Rector of Tipperary and Galbally,

All these livings and curacies he held until his death, which 
took place early in the year 1670. 

Mr. Alford's will, made probably shortly before his death, 
was lost by his executor; but a draft of it was attested on 6th 
June, 1670, and proved 17th June, same year. By this will 
Alford seems to have had no issue, if he had ever married ; for 
he leaves legacies to servants, and the remainder of his bills, 
books, and miscellaneous effects to all his brothers and sisters 
in England who may prove their claims, in equal portions. 
This will is the earliest of those made by clergymen which 
remain in Cork registry. [D.R.] He was probably a member 
of the Alford family in Somersetshire. I find a Lancelot Alford 
was appointed Clerk of the Hanaper in Ireland, on 5th Nov.,

that he was the eldest son of Nicholas Wilcox, of Dublin, who, 
by his wife, Joyce, whose will was dated in 1664, had two sons,

Gustavus Wybrants was descended from Joseph Peter Wy- 
brants, who came from Antwerp to Dublin in 1G22, and was 
naturalized in 1623. He is thought to have returned to Hol- 
land, and to have brought his wife and other children to his 
native country. However, one of his sons, Peter, remained in 
Dublin, and left issue, [vide his will, dated 7th August, and 
proved 21st Oct. 1639,] by his wife, Elisabeth, dau. of John 
Rantoq)S, of Lyenborgh, in Germany, a son, Peter, who was, 
in 1658, Mayor of Dublin. This last-named Peter married 
Sarah, dau. of Bartholomew Drope, of London, and died intes- 
tate, leaving (besides a son, Peter, to whom administration 
of his father*s effects was granted on 7th Nov. 1699), a son, 
Bartholomew, who was father to Rev. Peter Wybrants, who 
married Margaret, dau. of Rev. Steplien Handcock, Dean of 
Clonmacnoise. The children of this marriage wore three 
daughters — Hannah, wife of Rev. Daniel Mathews ; Anne, and 
Elisabeth ; besides a son, Stephen, who married, in 1752, Alicia 
Cane. This Stephen last named had issue, besides eight child- 
ren, who died unmarried, Peter (eldest son) who marrie<l Martha 
Burton, and had issue a daughter, Maria-Jane, and two other 
children, both dead; Robert (second son) who, by his wife, 
Christiana Browne, had issue, Robert, now of 47, Rutland- 
square, Dublin, who married, firstly, Emily Trevilian ; and 
secondly, Maria M'Grigor Skinner, but has no issue ; and 
Gustavus (fifth son) the V. Castlelyons.

Arthur Champagne was a descendant of the ancient family of 
De Robillard, of Saintonge, in France. His more immediate 
ancestor was the Chevalier Josias de Robillard, Seigneur de 
Champagne, in the parish of Torc^, in Saintonge, who left that 
place at the revocation of the edict of Nantes, and became a 
Captain in Scravenmore's dragoons. He was deputed by the 
Huguenot officers of William's army to represent their suffer- 
ings and privations to government, and for that purpose re- 
mained in London after the departure of his companions for 
Ireland. The efforts he made to come up with his regiment, 
and the fatigue he underwent, brought on so severe an illness, 
that he died in Belfast, in October, 1688. He took the name of 
Champagne instead of de Robillard, according to the practice 
of all refugees of landed property, who adopted generally their 
territorial designation in place of the patronymic. 

His wife was Marie de la Roohefoucauld, a daughter of that 
great ducal house, and her genealogy can be traced in an unbroken 
line from " vir illustrissimus et potentissimus Fulcandus de 
Castro qui rocatur Rocha,** otherwise "de Rupe Fulcandus," of 
the 11th century. By this lady, who was buried at Portar- 
lington, the Chevalier had issue two sons, Josias and Augustus; 
and a daughter, Susanne, wife of the Baron Tonnay-boutonne 
et de St. Surin, and mother by him, of Henri Auguste, Baron 
de la Motte Fouque, the celebrated Prussian General under 
Frederick the Great, grandfather of Baron de la Motte Fouque, 
the distinguished German writer of romance. 

The Chevalier's eldest son, Josias, accompanied his parent in 
his exile, and was Ensign in La Mcllionier's regiment at the 
Buyne when but seventeen years old, where ho so distin-

gnished himself that he was appoiDted Aide-de-camp to the 
Lord Lieatenant, and afterwards attained the rank of Major in 
the army. This Major Josias Champagne married Jane, the 
eldest daughter of Arthur Forhes, second Earl of Oranard, and 
had issue by her an only son, Arthur Champagne (bom 1714, 
died 1800) who was in holy orders, and held, among other 
church pr^erments, the deanery of Clonmacnoise. 

Dean Arthur Champagne married Marianne, dau. of Major 
(afterwards Colonel) Isaac Hamon, and by her, who was buried 
at Mallow, county Cork, on 22nd August, 1784, had issue 
four sons : — 1. Arthur, in holy orders, P. Monnehonnock, St. 
Patrick's, Dublin, and R. Cloncah, Derry. He married, in 
May, 1788, Mary, dau. of Rev. Philip Homan, of Siroch, county 
Westmeath, and died in 1791, leaving an elder son, Arthur, 
y. Castlelyons, and a posthumous ehild, Forbes; 2. George, 
Canon of Windsor, and Rector of Twickenham ; 3. Forbes, a 
Brigadier-General ; 4. General Sir Josias, who married Dorcas, 
sister of Rev. Thomas Brownri gg, of Rathdowny, county Wick- 
low, and Ballydaniel, county Wexford, and relict of White, 

esq. Sir Josias left an only child, Artliur, of 55, Harley-street, 
Cavendish-square, London. Dean Champagne had also six 
daughters : — 1. Jane, CouifTESS of Uxbbidoe ; 2. Henrietta, 
wife of Sir Frasmvs Dixon Borrgwes, Baronet ; 3. Marianne, 
wife of Sir Charles Des YiEux, Bart. ; 4. Charlotte, wife 
of Colonel William Armstrong. 5. Deborah, wife of Rev. 
Samuel Close, of Elm Park, county Armagh ; 6. Letitia, wife 
of George Stepney, esq., of Durrow, King's county; and after 
his death wife of Edward Skeffington Smyth, esq., of Mount 
Harry, Queen's county. 

The Vicar of Castlelyons had been P. C. of Durrow, Meath, 
before he accepted Castlelyons. He was presented to Durrow 
by his cousin. Colonel Stepney. He resigned Castlelyons in 
1830, and resided afterwards in the county Limerick. Having 
succeeded to the estates of his uncles, George and Forbes, and 
of his brother, Forbes, he died, unmarried, in Dublin, on 2nd 
Nov., 1862.

1709. " Besides an English school for the education of poor 
children in the Protestant religion, there is a public free school, 
which is an elegant bailding, composed of one main structure 
and two returns, over which was lately a han<Is()me dome. 
This school was founded, anno 1709, by the Lady Elizabeth . 
Villiers. She was eldest daughter of Sir Edward Vifliers, father 
of Edward, Earl of Jersey, and Maid of Honour to Queen Mary 
when Princess of Orange; and in 1695 was married to the 
Lord George Hamilton, third son of William, Duke of Hamil- 
ton, afterwards created Earl of Orkney. She expended a con- 
siderable sum of money in building this house, and settled a 
good estate on this endowment for the support of a master, 
two ubhers' assistants, a writing-master ; and £50 a-ycar for 
scholars entered from this school into the University of Dub- 
lin." 

"She reserved for herself a power to make rules for the 
governing this school. The governors first appointed by the 
charter were the Earls of Orkney and Inchiquin, Thomas Brod- 
rick, Alan Brodrick, and Samuel Maynard, esqrs. ; Lieutenant 
Peter Bettesworth, and their respective heirs, together with the 
Bishop of Cork, and the Sovereign of Middleton. They nomi- 
nate the master, who has £100 a-year salary ; an usher, who 
has £20 per annum ; and a writing-master, £20 per annum. 
There is £10 per annum for repairs of the house ; with the 
sum of £50 to be distributed in exhibitions to scholars (of this 
house) in Dublin College, as the majority of the governors shall 
direct, provided that not more than £15 be paid to one person ; 
and if such scholars are not to be had, this money is to go to 
such charitable uses as the governors shall direct. The estate 
bequeathed to this school are the lands of Ballynehortig, Bally- 
nerequine, Ballynameuile, Ballynudagha, G4 acres of Tullagh 
loane, lying in the barony of Kinalea and Kerricurihy, and all 
the lands leased by the late King James to Sir Richard Mead, 
at the rent of £100 per annum ; the lands of Ballysabeg and 
Kilgoban, in the barony of Carbery, containing 33 1 dcres ; and

North, esq., by the late King James, at £100 per an.** [Smith's

Thomas Palmer, a lineal descendant of Thomas Palmer, of 
Rockingham (a.d. 1402), county Northampton, had been Page 
of Honour to Anne Htde, wife of James II. He was Judge of 
the Admiralty Court of Munster, and of the Consistorial Court 
of Ardfert and Aghadoe, and was the first Protestant Rector of 
the crown livings of Eenmare, Eilgarvan, Templenoe, Eil- 
croghan, and Cahirciveen. He was appointed to the commission 
of the peace for the county Eerry on 15th May, 1679. Vide 
a book preserved in the Eing's Inns Library, Dublin, entitled^ 
" An exact relation of the Persecutions, Robberies, and Losses 
sustained by the Protestants of Eilmare, in Ireland, with an 
account of their erecting a fortress to defend themselves against 
the bloody insolences of the Papists, 1691."

which bad been the property of the O'SuUivans, and which, in 
1770, became the possession of the Eabl of Shblboubnb.

rectory of Eilcorkerane, alias Cloghane, to be made to Mr. 
Charles Northcote and his successors, Vicars of Newmarket, at 
such rent as the Economos shall think fit on viewing the same. 
On 20th May, 1703, Mr. Northcote obtained an abatement of a 
fottrth part of his rent, in consideration of serving the cure of 
Kilcorcoran, and a new lease is ordered to him at 4 li. per an. 

1710. November 16. Mr. Charles Northcote, Preb. of Eil- 
niaodonogh, submitted his claim (by his proctor, Mr. Walter 
Atkin, Treasurer), to the parish of Eilcorcorane, which he 
claimed as Vioar of Newmarket The Chapter repudiated his 
daim, and decreed him to appear in person next chapter, and 
publicly renounce his pretension. 

On 13th November, 1717, the Chapter refuses to make any 
payment to Northcote for the cure of Eilcorkoran until be 
ahall appear and renounce " all right, title, and pretension what- 
ever to the pretended vicarage of Eilcorkeran." In 1722 Mr. 
Northcote has a dispute about the bounds of Eilcorkeran 
parish, and a commission of perambulation is ordered ; and

August, 1762, had heen licensed to teach Greek and Latin in 
the city of Cork. He was buried at Newmarket on 26th Jan- 
uary, 1779. 

1768. The following inscription is now (1863) visible on a 
flat stone over a vault, near the entrance of the old churchyard 
of Clonfert : ** Johannes Creagh obiit 8^ die martis anno Dom. 
1768. ^tatis 92. 

Hie veneranda pii requiescant ossa Parentis, 
Dum tuba prolifico reuovatum pulvere corpus 
Evocet ad sedes, sic fas sperare, beatas. 

Richardus, Johannes, filii obsequentissimi posuere.** 

John Creagh, whose death was thus recorded, was a member 
of an ancient Irish &mily, which was settled iu Cork- so early 
as the time of Edward 111., and continued for two centuries to 
form intermarriages with the leading merchants, and to attain 
power and wealth. In 1644, however, when the other ancient 
Irish inhabitants were expelled Cork, William Creagh, with his 
son, John, left that city. 

John settled near Newmarket, and was buried in Clonfert 
churchyard ; and left an eldest son, John Creagh, of Killowen, 
near Newmarket, who died as above is mentioned. 

He left a numerous family, and his descendants still possess 
the lands of Killowen, in Clonfert parish. 

1771. March 17. Cornelius and Margaret Noonan, and 
Thomas M^Auliff, renounce Popery. 

1772. May 17. The Honourable Mrs. Aldworth was buried. 
1774. Oct. 16. John Philpot Curran, esq., and Sarah Creagh, 

both of this parish, were married, by licence, by the Curate, 
Henry Weston, in presence of Richard Odell and Jeremiah 
Keller. [Par. Reg.J The celebrated Curran, whose memory 
is still affectionately remembered in the land of his birth, was 
born on or about 24th of July or August, 1751, in a bouse 
which has long been removed, which stood to the west of the 
present (1863) court-house in Newmarket His father, James 
Curran, was probably from the north of Ireland, and held the 
office of Seneschal of the Manor of Newmarket under the Aid- 
worth family. His mother was of gentle blood, being a de- 
scendant of Henry Philpot, of Feversham, in Kent, whose 
grandson, John Philpot, of Feversham, had, inter alios (besides 
Sir John Philpot, Judge of the Common Pleas), a son, Nicholas 
yoL. II. K 2 



132 CLONFERT. [CLOYNE. 

Philpot, wbo, by his wife, Anne (dau. of William, and sister of 
Sir Richard Aldworth, of Newmarket), had two sons, John and 
Gregory. John the last named was grandfather to William 
Philpot, of Dromagh, whose estates passed by marriage to his 
great grandson, Nicholas Philpot Leader, esq., whose son, N. P. 
Leader, is now (1863) m.p. for Cork county. Gregory (the 
other son of Nicholas Philpot and Anne Aldworth), by his 
w:ife, Bridgett, dau. of John Evatt, Dean of Elphin, had issue 
two sons, Michael (P. Dromdaleague, Cork, q. v.) ; and Laur- 
ence, who married Sarah, dau. of Hugh Wigtou, of Raphoe, 
and had issue Sarah, wife of James Curran, and mother of 
John-Philpot and Laurence Curran. Mr. Boyse, or Boyce, the 
Vicar of Clonfert, of. whose charijbable disposition there are 
some traces in the old books of the parish, perceived and fos- 
tered the germs of genius in the youthful Curran. He taught 
him Greek and Latin, and sent him at his own charges to Mid- 
dleton school, from whence Curran entered T.C.D. as Sizar, in 
1769, and became a Scholar in 17?0. It is not within the 
scope of this work to give a biography of Curran. His life has 
been already more than once written ; and it will be enough 
here to record the issue of the marriage which he, unhappily for 
himself, formed as above in 1774. On 29th May, 1776, Richard- 
Creagh, son of John and Sarah Curran, was baptized. On 22nd 
Sept. 1777, Sarah-Gertrude; on 2nd January, 1779, Emily- 
Maria; on 23rd Dec. 1779, Eliza-Odella ; on 19th January, 
1784, John; and on 31st January, 1787, James, children of 
John and Sarah Creagh, were baptized at Newmarket. Another 
daughter, Gertrude, born in 1780^ died on 6th October, 1792, 
and was buried at the Priory, Rathfarnham. One of his 
daughters, Sarah, the betrothed of Emmett, and wife of Mr. 
Sturgeon, lies buried in Newmarket. Only a rough stone 
marks the spot. (Fwfe supra, vol. i. p. 53.) Another daugh- 
ter, Eliza, I suppose, was wife to an English clergyman, Mr. 
Taylor ; and another daughter, Amelia, resided at Clifton, near 
Bristol, for some time. 

J. P. Curran died at nine o'clock on the evening of 14th 
Oct. 1817, at his house, Amelia-place, Brompton, Middlesex, 
London. His funeral, which took place on 4th November, 
was private, the hour being communicated only to the mourn- 
ers. Between twelve and one the procession left Upper Gros- 
venor-street, where the body had been deposited the night 
before. There were but three mourning and three private car- 
riages. Mr. Curran, barrister. Captain Curran, and Mrs. Tay- 
lor, his children, and Mr. Thomas Moore, Mr. Godwin, and Mr, 
Charles Philips, attended. The body was deposited in a vault 
at Paddington, and was twenty years afterwards removed to 
Glasnevin. In the parish church of Clifton, on the south wall, 
under a female figure, mourning, is the following inscription : —

left £50 to the poor of this parish, which was noticed in the 
parish register thus : ** 6 months' interest of Mr. Aldworth*8 
fifty pounds, bequeathed to the poor of this parish, £1 10«.** 
This entry was after December, 1776, and before January, 
1777. The pages following have been lost, so I am unable to 
trace this legacy further, until the year 1806, when the vestry 
acknowledge the receipt of '*£! 10^., interest of £50, the 
bequest of Richard Aldworth, esq., paid by the representatives 
of William Connell." After some time the payment of the in- 
terest of this £50 ceased« nor was it recovered until the year 
1S62, when the principal and interest were paid through the 
medium of the Incumbered Estates Court to the Commissioners 
of Charitable Donations and Bequests. It is now called the 
Connell Bequest by the Charity Commissioners, although it has 
been pointed out to them that Connell borrowedy not bequeathed 
the money. 

1781. Nov. 11. Michael Creagh, esq., of Lanrentinum and of 
LiscarroU, died. He was the youngest son of John Creagh 
(whose death, in 1768, is recorded above), by £lIinor, dau. of 
Colonel John Barretts, whose esUites and castle were forfeited 
in 1688. Michael Creagh left £100 to the poor of Clonfert 
parish, the interest of which, amountiiig tp £5 10«. 9^. yearly, 
is still punctually paid to the Vicar of Clonfert by the repre- 
sentatives of the testator. For an account of this branch of

part of the population. As there will be some hundreds of

and the interest for ever may be disposed of in equal parts to two 
old and honest peasants upon the estate of Newmarket — for

Mr. Cox, a clergyman, son to the late Dr. Cox, near Drogheda, 
who, 1 understand, is under the patronage of Dr. Coghill. 
Pray inform yourself of his character ; whether he be a good 
man, one of parts and learning, and how he is provided for. 
I should be glad to be apprized of his character. No one has 
recommended him to me ; but his father was an ingenious 
man ; and I saw two sensible women, his sisters, at Rhode 
Island, which inclines me to think him a man of merit ; and 
such only I would prefer." [Berkeley's WorkaJ

May 30, Vayle not appearing, is ordered to be suspended ab 
officio, and his vicarage is sequestered. On 2nd March, 1675, 
is the following entry made in the chapter books : — *^ Whereas 
the Bishop has collated William Vayle one of the Vicars Choral, 
yet, notwithstanding it is evident that he cannot enjoy the same 
by that collation. However, in consequence of a reference by 
word of mouth from Thomas, Lord Abp. of Cashel, at his trien- 
nial visitation, held at Cloyne this day, directed to us, the 
Dean and Chapter, to consider of an expedient that neither the 
organ be destitute of an organist, nor the present organist, the 
said William Vayle, of a com}>etent maintenance, we humbly 
request and represent that it is convenient that the said William 
Vayle shall continue to enjoy the one moiety of the profits of 
the 4 vicarages belonging to the 4 Vicars Choral, provided he 
keep in repair the organ, and at his own cost find one to blow 
the bellows." Vayle, on March 3, 1721, resigned the vicarage 
which he held as organist, and Mr. Kearney was appointed 
thereto, but was to pay Vayle £10 p. an. for his life out of the 
profits. [Cloyne Chapter Books.] 

Daniel Fitzsymons, in 1669 and 1670, is marked '' absent 
studendi gratia. [V.B. D.R.] He is said to have been nomi- 
nated by the Dean in a chapter entry of 9th Aug., 1671, at 
which time it was agreed that Considine should enjoy Fitz- 
symons' vicarage during the incumbency of Fitzsymons, paying 
to Fitzsymons £15 yearly. And that when Fitzsymons shall 
have other preferment, Considine shall pay him £12 yearly, 
and serve his cure. On June 11, 1674, it was decreed that 
Daniel Fitzsymons be deprived, and that his vicarage be vacant 
and sequestered. [Cloyne Chapter Book.]

The following is a more particular account of this accident : 
'^ A storm of lightning, with thunder, on the night of January 
10, 1749, passed through the country in a line from W. to E., 
and after killing some cows in a field S. of Cork, struck the 
round tower of Cloyne. It first rent the vaulted arch at the 
top, threw down the great bell, together with three galleries, 
and descending perpendicularly to the lowest floor, forced its 
way with a violent explosion through one side of the tower, 
and drove some of the stones, which were admirably well 
jointed, through the roof of a neighbouring stable. The door, 
though secured by a strong iron lock, was thrown to the dis« 
tance of sixty yards, and quite shattered to pieces. A few 
pigeons that used to roost on the top of the steeple were 
scorched to death, not a feather of them being left unsinged. 
With the same bad taste which distinguishes all the works of 
architecture of this era, the vaulted stone roof of the tower was 
never repaired, but the height was lowered more than 6 feet, 
and a vile battlement, in imitation of the worst English churches, 
substituted in its stead.'* [Bishop Bennet.]

The following account of Cloyne, of the date 1813, or a little 
later, is taken from the manuscripts of Bishop Beunet : — 

Cathedral, Town, and Environs. 

"Smith (in his History of Cork, vol. i., p. 135,) has repre- 
sented the state of the Cathedral in his time, and given a list 
of the inscriptions on the tombs. It is a respectable building 
with a handsome nave and transept, and a small choir, all kept 
in better order than is usual in the ancient Irish churches, ny 
the style of the building I should suppose it not older than 
1250. It has no mouldings of the zig-zag, nailhead, or billeted 
kind, nor round arched windows, which distinguish what is 
called the Saxon or rather Norman architecture, before the in- 
troduction of the Gothic, temp. Henry III., and which appears, 
for instance, in Cormac*s Chapel, at Cashel; nor, on the other 
hand, has it the splendid arch or oak-leaved ornamentation so 
common towards the middle of the reign of Edward L I 
should, therefore, fix the era of its erection to the latter years 
of the first of these princes, or the beginning of the reign of the 
last. The windows, though since altered, were evidently lancet- 
shaped, as was common in the time of Hemy III. See the 

YOL. II. M 2 



164 CLOTKE (vicars choral). [clotkb. 

great west wiDdow and that of the south transept, the latter 
on the outside, which is an additional reason for the date I have 
chosen, as is also the circumstance that about this time three 
Prelates out of four were from England, where monastic and 
cathedral architecture were in high estimation. The Bishops 
Johnson and Woodward are buried in this cathedral. In erect- 
ing the present cross wall, at the entrance to the choir, which 
was done by Bishop Agar, 1776, as the workmen dug deep in 
the nave to lay the foundation, they discovered a row of graves 
of rather singular construction, consisting of brick cells, ex- 
actly suited to the size and shape of the body contained in each, 
and what is curious enough, one of them ended at the shoul- 
ders, nor were any of the bones of the skull to be found with 
the body. It is, therefore, not improbable that the head of the 
owner may have been fixed on Cork gates in the times of tur- 
bulence, as they appear, in the print given us of that city in 
Pacata Uibemia, to be full of such kind of trophies. 

" The round tower, situated near the west door of the cathe- 
dral, is in excellent preservation. The dimensions of it are as 
follows : — Height, 92 feet ; circumference, 50 ; thickness of 
walls, 3 feet 8 inches; height of door from ground, 13 feet. 
It has stones projecting on the first story for the joists of a 
floor to rest on. Windows seem to have lighted different 
stories, and at the top were four in number, as is invariably the 
case. The summit, however, has been absurdly altered, pro- 
bably after it was struck by lightning in 1749, into the shape 
of battlements, instead of being closed at top as usual. The 
stones of which the tower is formed have been chiefly brought 
from the sea-shore, though about half way up the building the 
stones themselves, as well as the mode of placing them, undergo 
an evident alteration. Within the tower hangs the single 
bell belonging to the church, presented by Dean Bavies. The 
steps to the door are also modern, like the battlements, for these 
round towers (whatever may have been their use), were always 
entered by a rope or ladder. 

" In the eastern part of the church-yard, which is large and 
well planted, still remain the ruins of a small stone edifice 
(standing east and west, 30 feet long and 19 in breadth), 
known by the name of St. Colman's Cliapel, and probably one 
of those oratories or early churches still to be seen at Eillaloe 
or St. Donat's, treated of by Ledwich in his Antiquities. 

"The town of Cloyne is situated on a small limestone emin- 
ence, gently rising in the midst of the valley, through which 
I suppose Cork harbour to have once communicated with the 
sea, and this eminence, therefore, was once an island sur- 
rounded with water; afterwards, on the water partially drying 
up, by a deep bog; and at present, by rich and in general well 
improved m^Bwlows, to which the plantations about the church

and see house, with the round tower appearing everywhere 
above them, give a good effect. On this spot, when in its first 
or second state of transition (and in either it was a place of 
considerable security), St Colman before the year 600, is sup- 
posed to have founded his church, and the security of it must 
have received no small addition from the circumstance of a 
cave, which is on the most elevated part of it, extending in 
various branches underground to a great distance. In tliose 
unsettled and barbarous ages, caves of this sort were resorted to 
by the natives on the first appearance of an enemy, and the 
invaders seldom being able to make a long stay, the wives and 
children of the tenants, and perhaps even their cattle, would 
remain in tolerable safety till the country could collect in their 
defence. It is certain that places of refuge of this sort were 
looked upon as of so much necessity, that in some of the Heb- 
rides we find artificial caves constructed for this purpose, and 
where nature had provided one so deep and roomy a^ this, the 
rude inhabitants of the time would as naturally graze their 
flocks and build their huts in its neighbourhood, as in later 
days they raised their cottages under the shelter of a Norman 
castle. This idea, also, will receive confirmation from the name 
of the town, Cluaine, signifying a cave in the Irish language. 

** The cave is now in the field called the Rock-meadow, form- 
ing part of the Bishop's demesne, a little east of his garden 
wall, and they having been long neglected, and the drains from 
it choked up, it is generally full of water in winter, yet there 
is a large arched passage, running some hundred yards, leading 
to another mouth in the shrubbery north of it A third but 
smaller opening is also visible in the high ground above the 
pond, a fourth near the road to the commons, and these or 
similar entrances being known to the first inhabitants, gave the 
Irish name to the whole of this land (which since the enclosure 
is preserved in the small field joining it) of Nonelus Ry, or the 
field of the caverns. 

*'' That such caves were used in Ireland for the purpose of 
security, appears from the Iceland Annals. [See ' Antiq. : 
Celts and Scandinav.* page 14.] 

" * Leifr went on piracy to the west, and infested Ireland with 
his arms. He there discovered large subterraneous caves, the 
entrances of which were dark and dismal ; but on entering they 
saw the glittering of the swords which the men held in their 
hands. The men they slew, and brought the swords, with much 
riches, away.' 

<< Thus I conjecture Cloyne to have been originally inhabited 
in the earliest times, in consequence of the security afforded by 
its caves, and to have increased in fame after GOO, from the 
veneration paid to its saint, the round tower certainly affording 
a mark of its importance in the year 900, or at least long 



166 CLOTHE (VICABS CHORAL). [cLOTHB. 

before the English invasion in 1171. [From the best opinion 
I can form on this disputed subject, I conclude the Irish 
round towers to have been raised by the Ostmen, on their 
conversion to Christianity, about 900.] 

" When the old retreat of the cave became of less consequence, 
from the change of manners, the safety of the inhabitants was 
equally consulted about 1200, by the erection of several strong 
and insulated castles, as seems to have been the case in all the 
old Irish towns of much note, to which the inmates of the neigh- 
bouring caverns retired in times of danger, at once receiving 
and giving protection. One of these castles was, as we have 
Been, at the south-east angle of the square, formed by the meet- 
ing of the four streets ; a second stood in Garryo wen-lane, ou 
the north side of the road ; and another somewhat to the east 
of the present see house: these buildings were probably raised 
by the Powers, or Fitzgeralds, most likely by the latter, who 
possessed almost the whole barony of Imokilly, first when newly 
settled in the country as a defence against the savage natives, 
and afterwards, when assimilated to them in manners and 
religion, as a protection to them. The advantage of the com- 
mons at a still later era operated as a cause of increase to the 
population, so that even at present, though exceeded in splen- 
dour of buildings and many other advantages by the neighbour- 
ing towns of Middleton and Castlcniartyr, it is not considerably 
below them in number, which by a tolerably accurate compu- 
tation, in 1800, amounted to more than 1,600 souls. [The in- 
habited houses were as follows : — Church-lane, 75 ; Roch-lane, 
35 ; River-lane, 62 ; Spital-lane, 136. By a later and more 
accurate enumeration taken on oath in 1813, the number of 
inhabitants amounted to 2,020, the town then having 308 in- 
habited houses, and at least 5^ persons to every house on an 
average.] As there is no other market for the whole well-peopled 
peninsula from Ballycotton to Rostillan, the influx of persons 
on a market or fair day is very considerable indeed. The 
ancient names of the neighbouring fields and ground speak 
the savageness of the place in early times, Ejiockna Madreo 
is the hill of the grey dog or wolf; Park Nadristrig, the field 
of briers ; Monewraniskey, the meadow of the wild boars. 

'' Of the hills that surround the town, that on the north is 
Bohermore, or the great highway ; from a tradition that a road 
passed over it from the sea on the south to that on the north 
of the kingdom. The hill to the north-west is, as we have 
said, Knockna Nadree, the hill of the Wolf, and to the north- 
east is Courtoun, or the hill with the naked turn, which ex- 
presses its present appearance with much precision." 

The new organ, bought by the Chapter in 1813, cost £800.

Clonpriost ; from 1637 to 1678, P. Desertmore, Cork ; from 
1640 to 1661, Dean of Cloyne, and R. Shandrum ; from 1660

of £565. [MS. T.C.D. F. 2. 17.] 

He married, firstly, Margaret, dau. of Dr. George Syuge, 
Bishop of Cloyne, by whom lie had a daughter, Martha, but 
had the misfortune to lose both wife and daughter by shipwreck, 
in 1641. He married, secondly, Mary, dau. of Dermot, Lord 
Inohiquin, by Ellin, dau. of Sib Edward Fitzgerald, of Cloyne.

1669. June 3. A lease of the manse lioi^e of Farraghee, 
made by the Dean to George Arnold for twenty-one years, at 
40«. per ann. (in consideration of said Arnold's having expended 
12 li. in building the same, and inclosing the land), was con- 
firmed by the Chapter of Cloyne. [Chapter Book.] 

Henry Rugg was ordained Deacon and Priest by the Bishop 
of Cork on 24th May, 1628; and on 20th Sept. 1631, wtis ad- 
mitted one of the Fellows of the College of the B.V.M. de 
Youghall. [R.V. 1634.] 

From 1637 to 1661 he was Vicar Choral, Cloyne, and K. 
Igtermurragh; and from 1638 to 1671 was a Vicar Choral of 
Ross. He was also from 1640 to 1661, P. Cahirultan; from

league, Cork; from 1664 to 1669, Vicar Choral of Cloyne; and 
from 1669 to 1671, R. Bohillane and Kilmahon. 

The Dean was plundered by the rebels in 1641 of property 
to the amount of £1,928. [MS. T.C.D. F. 2. 17.] 

Dean Rugg had issue (by his wife, Sarah, relict of 

Smith), two sons, John, P. Kilmacdonogh, q. v.; and Thomas, 
who was a Vicar Choral of Cloyne, in 1663. 

The Dean was buried in Cloyne Cathedral, under the south 
end of the communion table, in June, 1671.

In 1672, May 30, he took the chapter oath; and in 1678, 
January 9, was (with three others), chosen Guardian of the 
Spiritualities, on the death of Edward, Bishop of Cork, Cloyne, 
and Ross. [C.B.] Ho was attainted by James II. in 1689. 

William Fitzgerald was the eldest son of John Fitzgerald, 
who was Dean of Cork from 1628 to 1641. Dean John Fitz- 
gerald could not, however, have died in 1641, as I have stated 
on the authority of Cotton. On referring to Lodge (edition of 
1754, vol. i., page 73), I find that ho states that the Dean's 
%v}fe died in Bristol, in 1641. The matriculation book of T.C.D. 
states that William and John, the first and the second sons re- 
spectively of " Gerald, decani Corcag.," were born in Cork, and 
entered as Pensioners on 22nd June, 1660, being aged, the elder 
nineteen, the younger seventeen years. They must, if this 
entry of their matriculation be correct, have been sons of Dean 
John Fitzgerald, by a second wife. 

W. Fitzgerald was from 1661 to 1669, P. Kilmacdonogh; 
and from 1669 to 1691, P. Tipper, Dublin. He was also, from 
1663 to 1671, V. Clondrohid; and from 1671 to 1691, Dean of 
Cloyne, R. Ardagh and Clonpriest; and from 1675 to 1692, 
Archdeacon of Ross, and R. V. Clondrohid. 

From 1691 to his death in 1722 he was Bishop of Clonfert. 

" William Fitzgerald, d.d.. Dean of Cloyne," married, in 1688, 
Letitia Cole, of Dublin, spinster. [Dublin Marriage Licence, 1st 
July.] The Dean married, also, Mary, relict of Boyle May- 
nard, esq., and second daughter of Sir Heney Tynte, by Ma- 
bella, dau. of Sir Percy Smith, of Ballynatray. By her the 
Dean had no issue, but whether she was his first or second wife 
I cannot say. 
1691. Sept. 4. Henry Scardeville, b.d., is appointed Dean. [Lib.

1691 to 1694, Mr. Rowland Davies acted as Sub-dean.

bat never came hither to exhibit his patent, nor to be installed, 
nor to take institution from the Bp. for a living he holds with 
his deanery, as required to do, but excuses himself that he is 
in his Majesty*8 service in England, and that Lord Canterbury 
has writ to Lords Justices in his behalf. Dominus Rex patro- 
nus. Ecclesia in ruina — lapsa." [Palliser.] 

1695. August 2. Dean Scardeville was instituted. [D.B.] 
He took the chapter outb on 8th August [Chapter Book.] 

Dean Scardeville gave to Cloyne Cathedral one large silver 
ohalice and a paten. [D.R.] 

Henry Scanieville (bom at Salisbury, and educated at Rep- 
ton), entered T.C.D. when nineteen years old, on 24th April, 
1673, and graduated afterwards b.d. 

He was Chaplain to Field Marslial the Duke of Schombebo. 
From 1681 to 1685 he was R. Cloghran, Swords, Dublin; from 
1682 to 1703, P. Swords, Dublin; from 1691 to 17C3, Dean of 
Cloyne, and V. Clondrohid; and from 1693 to his death in 1703 
he was Archdeacon of Ross. 

The family history of Di>an Scardeville is best told by the 
inscriptions on a mural tablet, and on a tombstone in the 
chancel of Swords Church, copies of which were kindly fur- 
nished by Rev. Thomas Twigg, the Incumbent. 

" Here lyeth ye body of ye Rev. Henry Scardevile, Dean of 
Cloyn, Archdeacon of Rosse, Prebendary and Vicar of Swords, 
who departed this life ye 3rd of February, 1703; together with 
ye body of his first wife, Mary, ye daughter of the Hon. Colonel 
Guy Molesworth, of London, [The Dean was married in 
December, 1682, M. L. Dublin.]" who died in childbed, and 
left no issue. He also married Margrety, daughter of Robert 
Culliford, of Encoomb, in the county of Dorsetshire, esq., who 
lies interred at Thistleworth, in Middlesex, by whom he had 
issue a son and a daughter, viz., Frederick Maynbard, and 
Elisabeth. 

"Here also lieth the body of Elisabeth Scardevile, his 
daughter, who departed this life the 4th day of May, 1704." 

Dean Scardeville is said to have repaired the old round tower 
at Swords. He left, bv will, £100 for teaching the Protestant 
children of Swords, which bequest seems never to have been 
paid. His executor, Mr. John Scardeville, was sued for it by 
direction of the Swords Vestry, in 1731, and he appears to have 
handed over in lieu thereof a lease M^hich he held from the 
Dean and Chapter of St. Patrick's, of the tithes of the parish 
of Killeek. That lease was afterwards made over to the Curate 
of Swords, Rev. Alexander Eustace; and the parish of Swords 
has had no benefit from the bequest of Dean Scardeville since 
the year 1774.

Archdeacon Meade was descended from the ancient Irish

ber, was m.p. for the same city in 1585. The son of the last- 
named, John, was Sir John Meade, knt. of Ballintobber, who, 
by his wife, Catherine, dau. of Sir Dominick Sarsfield, the first 
Viscount Eilmallock, had issue an only son, William Meade, 
who was a Lieut-Colonel in the Army, and raised a troop of

Mathew, fifth Lord Louth, and relict of Sir Christopher Aylmer. 
A chalice now in Ballymartle Church has this legend: — '^Ex 
dono Dominap MargaritsB Meade.*' 

The Archdeacon had issue three sons — Richard, whose son, 
Sib Richard, m.p. for Cork county in 1776, died Sp.; John, 
born in Tipperary, who entered T.C.D. in 1722, aged fifteen

KANTURK, P. C. 



In Kanturk, formerly a village in the parish of Clonfert, there 
seems to have been some place of worship in 1772, where ^he 
Curate of Clonfert used to preach about one Sunday in four. Be- 
tween 1794 and 1798, during the incumbency of Richard Wood- 
ward, the Bishop's son, at Clonfert, a chapel was erected in 
Kanturk, on a site granted by the Earl of Eomomt, a little below 
the confluence of the rivers Alio and Dallua. The Earl gave,also, 
£50 towards the building ; and William Allen, esq., of Green- 
field, to whose zeal and attention the completion of the church 
may in a great measure be ascribed, erected in it a handsome

gallery at his own expense. In 1805, Oct. 11, the Rev. George 
May bury seems to have been licensed to the caraoy of Kanturk 
by the Vicar of Clonfert, and at the Clonfert vestries of that 
period a parish clerk, <fec., fur Kanturk was regularly appointed. 
In 1808, howeyer, Mr. Hewitt, the Vicar of Clonfert, took steps 
to have Kanturk made a perpetual cure, and in 1809 it was 
accordingly formed into a chapel ry or parish, as it is at present 
1809. Robert Bullek is Curate. 

1809. .July 12. The Bishop of Cloyne, and Francis Hewitt, 
V. Clonfert, sign the deed for erecting Kanturk into a perpetual 
cure, under the Act 11 and 12 George L The Bishop assigns 
to the Cure of the church or chapel of Kanturk the toUowing 
townlands : — '' Kanturk, G^radeen, Curragh, Mylihiragh, Roa- 
line, Coolevotas, Kilnockin, Knockelly, Knockshehy, Knock* 
shesane, Gooseberry-hill, Carrigcashel, Barleyhill, Lismire^ 
Duarrigle, Callaghan's Rosacon, Callaghan*s lasm^cummin, 
Murphy's Lisniealcummin, Two Clontimacades, Greenfield, 
Gortnaconroe, and Gortnascreggy, which several townlands 
shall belong to the Cure of the church or chapel of ease so 
erected in the town of Kanturk as aforesaid, which shall here- 
after be one parish, to be called and known by the name of the 
parish or chapelry of Kanturk, and shall be deemed and reputed 
to be one entire parish, for the purposes in the said Act 
mentioned, saving, nevertheless, to the said Francis Hewitt 
and his successors, Vicars of Clonfert, otherwise Trinity Christ 
Church, Newmarket, all his and their rights as Vicars of said 
parish of Clonfert ** At this time the Vicar of Clonfert allocated 
for the stipend of the Curate the tithes of two farms, called 
Coulacousane and Curragh, amounting to £54 per an. The 
Board of First Fruits gave an equal sum, and also gave £450 
to fine down the rent of 10 plantation acres for a glebe, and 
an additional £450 for a house. This (says Mr. Hewitt, in his 
account of Clonfert, preserved in manuscript by his son), makes 
it one of the best curacies in the diocese, and the Bishop allows 
the Curate to perform the occasional duties of Tullilease, a non* 
cure, for which service £10 per an. is allowed. This provision 
for the Curate is, every way, worth £150 per an. The Earl of 
Egmont allows annually £30 to Mr. Bullen, as schoolmaster at 
Kanturk. [D.R. and Hewitt MSS.] 

N.B. — The townlands above mentioned as comprising the 
district of the perpetual curacy, are identical with those selected 
on 15th June, 1807, by the parishioners of Clonfert, "for 
paying the clerk and sexton of Kanturk, and for keeping the 
chapel in repair, in order that said chapel of ease may be made 
a perpetual cure." [Clonfert Vestry Book.]

[TJ.0.1 
It has been inadvertently stated at pases 109 and 153 of 

Cork, that Richard Ashe, r. EillaspagmuDane, and V. Holy 

Trinity, was also B. Killeagh. The error arose from the ah- 

sence of any Christian name in the Visitation Book of 1661. 

I give here the information concerning Richard Ashe, which 

was omitted in the Cork Becords. 
Bichard Ashe, a.b., was ordained Deacon by John, Bishop of

James Spencer was Curate of Youghall in 1662. From 
1662 to 1671 (?) he was V. Raghan, Ardagh. In 1663 he 
was Chaplain to the Bishop of Ardagh. From 1667 to his 
death in 1701 he was V. Inchinabacky, Clonmult, Dingindon- 
ovan, and K. Killeagh. 

He was married. ** Dorothy, ye wife of Mr. James Spencer, 
Minister," on 17th March, 1670/1, was buried in Youghall. 
Ho had issue a daughter, *' ffrancis," who was baptized at 
Youghal on 1st Feb., 1668/9. [Youghal Par. Reg.] 

I venture no remark as to tlie relationship of this James 
Spencer to Edmund, the poet But I will here give some very 
brief notes of the Spencer family, which may be of interest. 
I find Henry Spencer was ordained Priest by the Bishop of 
Ardfert on 18th March, 1663. He was V. Drehidtarsna, in 
Limerick. Perhaps he is the same person who was buried in 
Cork, in 1646. Vide Holy Trinity Vicarage, Cork, page 110 
of vol. i. 

Edmund Spencer, the poet, died in 1599. In 1600 Sib 
Gerald Aylmer and Sir William Sarsfield grant a deed of 
feofiment on 20th August, of 11. Athnowen, Rennybrough, R. 
Kilbride, Kilbrogane, Kilmainane, Agneholtie, <S:c., parcels of 
the Abbey of Grany, in Munster, to the use of Roger Seeker- 
ton and his wife (the poet's relict), with rem' to Peregrine 
Spencer, in tail male, with rem' to Roger Spencer and wife, with 
rem' to the right heirs of Edmund Spencer for ever. [Fer- 
guson's MSS. I. 74.] 

The eldest son of the poet, by his wife, Elisabeth, was Syl- 
VANUS Spencer. He married Ellinor, dau. of David Nagle, of 
Monanimy, by Ellen, dau. of William Roche, of Ballyhooly. 
He had two sons, Edmund, who died Sp., and William, who 
was heir to his brother, and recovered the estates of Kilcol- 
man, and also, in 1697, of Renny. This William had, by his 
wife, Barbara, a daughter, Susannah, and a son, Nathaniel, who 
was of Renny, and died, having had, by his wife, Rosamund 
Bulkeley, a daughter, Barbara, and three (^ous, Edmund, Na- 
thaniel, and John. Edmund, the last-named, was born 25th 
Nov., 1711, and married in 1736, Anne, dau. of John Freeman, 
esq., of Ballinguile. 

The second son of the poet was Laurence Spencer, whose 
will was dated in 1653, and proved in 1654, at Cloyne. In it 
he is styled " Laurence Spencer, of Camden Bridge, Youghal." 
This will (I am told by the Registrar of Cloyne) is very brief. 
The testator bequeathes feather beds, and a few legacies of 
20 shillings each, to persons whose names seem to be Morton 
and Bathurst. 



OLOTNS.] KIIXBAOH. 261 

The poet*s third son was Pbbegbinb. He married Dorothy 
Morres, or Maurice [Book of Orders of CromweH's Court of 
Claims, 1654 to 1655, pp. 213-18], and had from his brother 
the lands of Renny. He, in 1634, had also the impropriate 
rectory of Athnowen, Cork, and of Brinny, He was father of 
HuQOLiNUS Spencer, who married Ellinor, widow of William 
Roche, of Ballymaclauraco, county Cork, and became a Roman 
Catholic, and was outlawed. He was possessed of the impro- 
priate rectories of Brinny and Athnowen, and appeared for 
them in the Visitation Books in 1694. His property was 
granted to William Spencer, his cousin, "as next Protestant 
heir." The only child of Ilugolino Spencer was Dorothy, who 
was wife of Pierce Power, and bore to him three sons — Hugo- 
lin Power (who married Uonora, dan. of Richard Barrett), 
Pierce, and William.

Emanuel Phaire, a.b., was ordained Deacon on 23rd Dec, 
1604, and Priest on 24th, 1604, both by William, Bp. of Oxford. 
He was V. Kilshannig in 1612, and besides the preferments 
above mentioned, held in 1634, the curacy of Morneabbey. 
He was plundered by the rebels in 1641, and lost his church 
livings, worth £50 per annum. [MS. T.C.D. P. 2. 18.] 

The family of Robert Phaire, one of the persons to whom 
was directed the warrant for the execution of Charles I., settled 
in Ireland. Colonel Phaire was appointed by Cromwell to bo 
Governor of Cork in 1651; and in 1660 was sent prisoner to 
London, but saved his life by means of Lord Clang arty. He was 
afterwards concerned in a plot for seizing Dublin Castle, and 
again escaped punishment. He died near Cork, and was buried, 
as is recorded in Smith's Cork [Vol. i., p. 205], in the Ana- 
baptist burying ground in that city. 

Colonel Phaire married Elizabeth, dau. of Sir Thomas Her- 
bert, knight, and mentions in his will, proved in Dublin in 
1682, four sons, Onesiphorus, Alexander, Thomas, and John;

and fire daughters, Elisabeth, wife of Richard Famiar; Mary, 
wife of Qeorge Gamble ; Frances, Lucy, and Elisabeth. He is 
deficribed as of Grange, co. Cork, in the barony of Barretts. 

The will of his widow was dated 27th January, 1697, and 
was proved at Cork, on 7th Nov., 1698. She is described as of 
^* Grange, in ye barony of Barretts.*' She wishes to be buried

fflower, and Elisabeth Pordon ;'* her sons, Alexander Herbert 
Phaire, John Phaire^ and Thomas Phaire, the sole executor. 
She leaves to her children whatever '* profett may be had out

Peiver. The overseers of the will are Abraham Morriss, of 
Cork ; and Robert Peiver, of Ballygronans. The witnesses are 
E. Wetenhall and Ben Tartarian. The seal attached to this 
document bears *'a cross mouline, debruised by a bend, impal- 
ing three lions rampant." Among the Gloyne marriage bonds 
is one dated 1G92, for marriage between Thomas Phaire, of 
Grange, and Elisabeth Purdon, of Bally clogh. 

Of the issue above-mentioned of Colonel Phaire, three (Onesi- 
phorus, Mrs. Elisabeth Farmer, and Mrs. Mary Gamble) were 
children by a former wife, not named in the will. Onesiphorus 
was of Grange, and died circa 1702, leaving by his wife, Elisa- 
beth, two sons — Robert and Aldworth, and a daughter, Elisa- 
beth, wife of Edward Rogers, and after bis death, wife of Onesi- 
phorus Gamble. Of the sons, Aldworth, the younger, died Sp., 
and Robert, the elder, was of Grange, and died circa 1712, 
leaving issue by his wife, Anne Gamble (besides a dauj^hter, 
Elisabeth, and a younger son, Robert), an elder son, Onesi- 
phorus, who was of Templeshannon, county Wexford, and died 
m 1757, having had issue by his wife, Frances, dau. of Rev. 
Dr. John Patrickson, four children — Robert, who married Lady 
Richarda Annesley; Aldworth ; Polly- Anne, wife of Henry 
Nixon, of Newtown ; and Elisabeth. 

The eldest son of Colonel Phaire, by the second marriage, 
was Thomas Phaire, esq., of Mount Pleasant. He married Alicia 
or Elisabeth, dau. of Bartholomew Purdon, esq., senior, of Bally- 
clogh, and had issue five sons and two daughters. The sons 
were — Robert, of Grange, died circa 1742 ; Herbert ; Thomas,

1799. March 13. Thomas Cabson, R. V. Kilmahon. [F.P.] 

Mr. Carson seems, from the following letter addressed to 
him by Bishop Bennct, to have required a faculty to hold 
Clondulane and Kilmahon together. His opinion seems to have 
been highly valued by his Lordship on other matters. This 
letter of the Bishop is now in the possession of Mr. Carson's 
descendant, the Dean of Kilmore. It is dated from Dublin, 
17 th March, 1800. 

" Deab Cabson, 

" The expense of a ^ulty is very serious, and the danger 
of objecting to the title by which you hold your present parishes 
not imminent at present, so that I am inclined to advise you 
to wait till you think you have more pressing necessity. 

" The questitms you ask depending on the union, and the 
wording of the Act of Union itself, make it impossible at pre- 
sent to give a precise answer to them ; but I apprehend the 
Irish laws previous to the union will still bind the Irish Church, 
unless expressly repealed by the Imperial Parliament. The 
nature of the connexion in the clerical line is now before Sir 
Wm. Scot to give his opinion on it. 

" In order to answer the latter part of your letter, which I 
fear I cannot do exactly to your wishes, I must, in perfect 
dependence on your secrecy and honour, enter more than I am 
apt to do into the plan I have of disposing of Dr. Atterburys 
preferments, in case it should be my lot to outlrre him. 

'* My intention has been to separate the Chantership from 



tSO khjuhov. [clothb. 

tiie great union of Clonmell ; to settle Austin in the latter, and 
Hingston in the former ; in which cajse the plan yon mention 
of uniting Eilmahon, Ohurchtown, and Bohillane, might in time 
take effect ; but of late Mr. Mapletoft seems to have wished to 
give up Castletown for Atterbury's preferment, and then no 
separation would take place. 

'' But though either of these schemes shuts the door to your 
advancement, there are other passages equally broad left open. 
Dr. King's living was valued in 1796, at upwards of £900; and as 
that preferment would be more than equivalent for both yours, 
it would probably be a great object to you. Circumstances 
make me wish at present for two livings, such as you now 
hold, to dispose of; and though I would not be understood to 
make an actual promise, the chance of King's living furnishes 
an additional reason for you not to be too hasty in applying 
for a faculty to hold your present parishes. 

" I feel happy in the gratitude you express for such services 
as I have been able to render you ; and shall I confess also 
that I have always thought myself obliged by your expressing 
your dislike to my leaving the country in 1796? I wish we 
had talked over the reasons for and against it : there were 
many on both sides, and I knew too much of the state of the 
. country for my own comfort — the same knowledge of which 
poor Dodge, so fotally for himself, partook with me. So apt, 
however, is the world to Judge by the event, that the same 
mouths which were opened against me for quitting my diocese 
in 1796 were extended to the full as wide against Bishop 
Stock for not quitting his when the same enemy came in 
1798. The Primate too, in 1798, followed my example in 
quitting Armagh at the first report of a landing, as did poor 
Stock and his whole family on the second appearance of the 
French frigates in the bay of Killalla. They knew by expe- 
rience to what dreadful distress they exposed themselves. I 
knew it by anticipation. Besides, all my money was at Dub- 
lin, and I had a very numerous family to feed, who were to 
have left the country ten days after. I thought at the time 
that all travelling would soon become impracticable, as it did 
in 1798, and that as it was determined to give up the county 
of Cork to the enemy, it was better for me to prevent the 
misery of so terrible a retreat, and that ten days sooner or 
later made no difference. Providence saved us ; and therefore 
the world in general blamed me. I have even myself since 
thought I was too precipitate ; but I doubt whether I should 
have thought so at the moment of danger. At any rate it was 
kind of you to suggest your doubts, and I have endeavoured to 
be grateful for the advice. 

" 1 am, dear Sir, yours very truly, 

" Wm. Cloyne."

years old, matriculated at Exeter College, Oxford, on dlstOct, 
1600, and in 1601 was chosen Demy, at Magdalen College, 
whence he graduated B.A.on 12th June, 1603, and ]£.▲• on 13th 
July, 1607. 

Having resigned his Demyship in 1610, he was ordained 
Priest by William, Bp. of Oxford, on 1st April, 1612. 

He was, from 1612 to 1625, V. Dulverton, diocese of Bath 
and Wells ; and having resigned that living in favour of his 
brother, he became, in 1627, Precentor of Clojme, which he held

from 17th April, 1639, to his death in June, 1639, P. Oash- 
more, Lismore. 

He married, on 22nd July, 1613, at Walton, Elisabeth (dau. 
of Rev. Antony Eaglesfield, Rector of Walton-cnm-street, Bath 
and Wells, and Prebendary of Wells), by whom he had issue 
six sons and five daughters. 

He died at Kilwillan (RiUavullan), about the 6th Juno, 1639, 
and was buried in the church of Castlelyons. 

His relict, Elisabeth, suffered in the rebellion of 1641, as 
appears from the depositions now in T.C.D. Library, from the 
" despoiled and impoverished Protestants.'' 

His eldest son, Lawrence, was a " Comet of Horse" in the 
garrison at Youehal in 1644, and was one of '' the 1649 officers," 
who signed the ilcmonstrance to the Duke of York. 

William, the second son, was bom at Luccombe, in England, 
and was educated at Lismore. He entered T.C.D. as a Fellow 
Commoner, on 24th May, 1639, being then eighteen years old, 
but after his father's death entered the army. He was a Cap- 
tain of Horse at the siege of Bridgewater in 1644, and in 
February of that year was mentioned as having, by his loyal 
conduct, defeated an attempt of the rebels to gain over the 
giirrison by bribery. He was promoted to the rank of major ; 
but being forced, with the rest of the gallant defenders of that 
]>]aco, to surrender himself a prisoner of war in 1645, he with- 
drew to Barbadoes, with other unfortunate adherents of the 
royal cjiusc. Major William Byam, at Barbadoes, was " Master 
of the Ordnance, and Treasurer of the Island,** and soon after 
was compelled to leave Barbadoes for Surinam, of which place 
ho was chosen Governor, and where he remained until the Dutch 
dcct in 1666 took possession of that place, which was finally 
ceded to the Dutch in 1667. William, now General, Bjram, 
next settled at Antigua, where he died in 1670, in the forty- 
eighth year of his age, leaving three sons, for whom tide Burke's

Protestant Society," of wbicli tbe following account is taken 
from tbe original book of that association, now in tbe posses- 
sion of Robebt Cole Bowen, esq., j.p., of Bowenscourt, in the 
parish of Farraby. It is a neatly bound paper manuscript ; 
tbe first page or two being a copy only, but authenticated by 
tbe handwriting of tbe Rev. James llingston, who was a Vice- 
President of that society, and seems to bave acted as Secretary. 

Tbe society which was commenced on 4th Nov., 1745, "at 
the house of tbe Widow Callaghan, at Moyallow," bad for its 
object to concert measures for the mutual security of its mem- 
bers, and for the defence of his Majesty King George and his 
government, then imperilled by "a horrid and most unna- 
tural rebellion" carried on in Scotland, " by Papists and other 
disaflected persons," in favour of a Popish Pretender. Every 
Friday was tbe day of meeting, at tbe house above-mentioned ; 
and absent members were to be fined one British shilling. The 
first members were as follow : — Mat. Deane, Richd. Newman, 
John Dillon, Adam Newman, Arthr. Lysaght, Phil. Oliver,

those for absence were to be given by him to the Protestant 
poor of Mallow. The members were to wear on all days of 
meeting an orange cockade in their hats, and were to take, on 
a<lmis8ion, oaths of loyalty and abjuration of the Pretender, 
and to profess disbelief in transubstantiation. 

On 20th Dec, 1745, the club resolve to recommend Kichd. 
Newman, esq., to the Lord Lieutenant for an independent 
troop of dragoons. On May 9, 1746, the club resolve to meet 
but once a month for the future, and also agree " that tlie sum 
of two pounds five shillings and six pence be pai<l by the 
Treasurer to any person or persons that shall, within three 
calendar months from the date hereof, apprehend James Quin- 
hin, of this town, indicted at the last quarter sessions for assault- 
ing the wife of Dory, the gunsmith," ttc. It was also agreed to 
pay .£1 2^ 9(/. to any person who shall, within the same period, 
** set George Hasset, butcher, deserter from Genl. Whitchet's, 
now Bligh's Regiment of Dragoons, an<l give notice of the same 
to the military officer commanding in Mallow." 

On 2nd Dec, 1755, after a long recess, the society agree to 
meet monthly at the houses alternately of James Magrath and 
\Villiam Cooly. They resolve that no member shall pay more 
for his ordinary and wine or other liquor than Ss. 9 Jcf., " nor 
shall more than one bottle of wine or a like proportion of other 
liquor be allowed each member." 

On May 11, 1756, " Whereas at the last general assizes held 
for the county of Corke, John Lett, of Carrigoon, near Mallow, 
taylor, was capitally convicted for robbery and burglary, and 
ordered for execution on Saturday, the first day of this instant. 
And whereas the said Lott was not hanged till he was dead, ac- 
cording to his sentence, but is now alive, hath been seen by num- 
bers of persons, and is lurking about the neighbourhood of Car- 
rigoon aforesaid : — This society doth agree to give a reward of 
five pounds sterling to any person or persons who shall, within 
three calendar months from the date hereof, apprehend and 
lodge the said Lott in any of his Majesty's gaols in this king- 
dom." 

On 8th June, 1756, it was *' agreed for the time to come that 
no ratiiing, wageing, or any kind of hazardous gameing, be on 
any account whatsoever admitted at any meeting of this society, 
and that any person who shall hereafter propose any sucli 
raffling, wageing, or hazardous gameing, shall forfeit one dozen 
of wine, and such proposal shall be utterly and to all intents 
and purposes not complied with." 

On 9th Nov., 1756, it was .igrecd that the club meet for the 
future alternately at the houses of Mr. Magrath and of Mr. 
Richard Large, at the New Inn. 

On 14th Feb., 1758, '^Whereas by an act of this society, 
dated the 17th March last, it was ordere<i that all fines for ab-

eence, after payment of the respective houses (i,e, for dinners), 
should be laid up as a fund for aiding such poor people 
as should be bound over to the assizes for the prosecution 
of felons and compounders of felony, and not be able to bear 
their expenses at the assizes, &c. And whereas no applica- 
tion hath been made to this society for the purposes afore- 
said :" — it is now agreed that the said fine hitherto paid be ap- 
plied to the purchasing one silver medal for each of the mem- 
bers, to be worn by them publickly, appendant to an orange 
ribbon. The Treasurer is empowered to contract for forty of 
those medals, and the members are invited to suggest devices 
and mottoes, it being decided that one inscription shall refer 
to Nov. 4, 1745, the day of the first institution of this society. 

Beyond what is above stated, no business whatever seems to 
\ have been done by this society, excepting the levying of fines 

for absence. The last meeting recorded in the book from 
which these extracts are taken was held on 9th Dec., 1760, 
NoBBiss Jephson being Vice-President,

The rectory of Great Witley, Worcestersihire, was formerly 
in the possession of tliis family. Alan Clyffe, and his son, 
Alan Clifie, were Rectors of that parish. William Cliffe, son 
of the latter Alan, and of Jane Cooke, his wife, was born in 
1597 ; and by his wife Catherine, dau. of Henry Bright, a 
Prebendary of Worcester, had issue a third son, Henry, of

" Reverend Sir, 

" My humble service, <fcc., T have sent you, according to pro- 
mise upon Thursday last, a brevial of the proceedings going for- 
ward of the service of Mounster, in the kingdome of Ireland, 
your brother, Comett Joanes, and myselfe being comrades, and 
serving under the command of the Right Honorable Roger, Lord 



OLOTNS,] MABSHAL8T0WN. 881 

Baron of Broghill, myselfe being also his Lordship's Chapline. 
I have sent jon likewise a catalogue of the names of some of the 
chief commanders and approved souldiers in that province, 
with the names also of many castles in the county of Corke, 
which are in the Protestantes possession, and those that are 
in the Rebles, and what strength they are of ; and I have here 
inserted and sent to you a copie of the Lord of Muskerrie*s let- 
ter to the Earle of Barrimore, wherein hee doth persuade his 
honour to consort himselfe with his Lordship, the which hee 
doth defy, for I know the Earl to be a man tliat doth abhor 
and detest his Lordship, and the Lord Koche*s insurrection and 
desperate attempt, and wisheth evill success unto their rebel- 
lious designes, for hcc is one ' quem Titan finxit meliore luto*— 
flSrst concerning our Service. 

"The Rebles entering into the province of Mounster, com- 
mitting great spoyle in their march, Sir William Saint Leger, 
knight, Lord President of the said province, with 200 horse, 
Fryday, 3rd of December, kilt 200 of them between Clonemell 
and Waterford, beside a great number that were drowned ; 
many prisoners were then taken, whereof 40ty of the Ring- 
leaders were hanged at the citty of Waterford the Monday fol- 
lowing. 

"Thursday, the seventh of December.— My Lord President 
gave me notice the Rebles had robbed the Lord Arch Bishop of 
Cashell, and driven away his Grace's cattle and flock from his 
Pallace of Gosmis, made after them, and found some of the said 
cattle in the bawne of a gentleman not far from Cashell, 
whereuppon his Lordship caused the Rebles houses to be fired, 
and sent the gentleman to Clonemell gayle, after which time 
wee were indifierent quiett, until Baron Loghmoreand Captain 
Graves souldiers came into our company and stole the cattle 
and pillaged as they went, their stealthes and villanyes they 
committed were commonly in the night for the most part; 
most of their armes were halfe pike, and sleanes. Not long 
after their coming in this theivish kind of way, but most of 
the Papists in our barony of Cundans consorted themselves 
with them and robbed their next neighbours, and killed such 
as did withstand them without any regard of former intamatory 
of love, or tyes of favours don them and anncient acquaintance ; 
which made all the Protestants in those partes to fly to castles 
for the safety of their p.sons and lives, or run away to some 
Port Towne, or to the next strength adjoining, ancf leave all 
they had with them. 

" My honourable Lord, the Lord of Broghill aforesaid^ hear- 
ing of these cow-stealers, and the cruelty of the Cundans^ sent 
his troop of horse amongst them ; but we could not make any 
great execution at that tyme by reason of command which 
came the next day (being the first day of February), from our 



332 MAR8HALST0WN. [CLOYNE. 

honourable general!, the Lord President aforesaid, to meet at 
Kildorrary, in Sir William Ffenton's country, where all the 
English force and strength of the county of Corke were in field 
(but those that lay in garrison) ready to encounter with the 
Lord Mungarrett, Don Boyne, Castle Connell, Ikerin, Baron 
Loghmore, and their great army of Rcblcs. 

" We continued in the field at Kildorrary aforesaid two dayes 
and two nights, expecting their coming, according to promise, 
and their many threateniiigs, but they did not dare to come to 
us, or fight with us then, for wee had a daynty champion 
country, which doth much antipathize their cowardly natures ; 
they fight and deale altogether upon advantages, tliey will 
have woods and boggs to second them, or they will not fight 
can they any way shun it. 

"They marched to the towne of Kilniallock, in the county of 
Limbricke, where I heard the Lord Mungarrett was lovingly 
received by the townsmen, with the rest of his discontented 
gentlemen, for they used the English very coursely that lived 
in those partes, and others that had occasion to deale and com- 
merse with them. 

" The third day of February the Lord President, the Earlc of 
Barrimore, the Lord of Dungiirvane, my Lord of Broghill, and 
Sir William Courtney, marched towards the Redshard to have 
given the enemy a meeting. The Redshanl is the receptacle 
for the Rebles of those partes ; it is as dangerous a place for 
woods and boggs as any in Ireland ; it lycth in Sir Edward 
FitzHarris his country, not farre from the towne of Kilniallock. 

*'The aforesaid Lords, sir, to my own knowledge, went with 
a full intent and purpose to have given the Reble's great 
army a crash ; and I dare say they had, had our armyes mett 
that day, for they are lords of most noble mindes and coura- 
gious spirritts ; their very names are a mighty terror unto the 
Rebles ; they are all four of them approved souldiers ; they will 
endure much hardnesse, cold, and hunger, for they did lye 
in the tfield without any tentes in snow, frost, rayne, ha}?le, 
and all weathers ; excellent they are in managing their horses 
— the very Rebles acknowledge that ; and they say they had 
rather encounter and fight with three troupes of horse that 
should come newly into the laud, than with one of these Lord's 
troupes, for their troope.-^, and Sir William Courtney's troupe, 
have given thousands of them their due desertes since the tyme 
they did first rebell. 

" Our lying at Kildorrary, 1 observed in my Lord President 
that I cannot omit, his Lordship lying in the field, having no 
pillow but the ground, a gentleman presented his cloake unto 
him beseeching his Honor to be pleased to rest his arnie uppon 
it; he refused it, wishing him to keep it for himselfe, the 
weather was very cold, and for his own part he was better ac- 



CLOYNE.] MARSHAL8T0WN. 333 

quaiuted with uuch a kiud of lyfe than he was ; the gentleman 
was easily p.suaded to leave \\\h coniplament at that tyme, for 
there was not tlie like day of 8now all last winter ; my Lord, 
indeed, sir, is of a very noble and loving disposition unto his 
souldiers, and likewise are the other three Lords. As for my 
honorable good Lord, I am confident your brother, the Coro- 
uett, hath written unto you of his noble, and sweete, and kindo 
caryage towanls ns, therefore I pretaint ? to speake or write 
any more in that p.ticular. 

** Friday, the fourth day of February. — the Lord President, 
hearing that the Lord Mungsirrett intended, with his army, to 
come to his Lordship's towne of Duunarayle, his Lordship 
caused our army to march to the mountayne's foote, alias Balli- 
houra, tliree miles from the said towne to the north, to prevent 
their coming ; wee quartered there that night, Satturday, and 
Sunday night ; Munday, the seventh day of Ffebruary, my 
Lonl, seeing their delayos were but to get amies and ammu- 
nition, and a strong party, marched towards the towne of 
Kiimallock, and plundered the countrey, for they were most 
Robells in those partes. The Lord Mungarrctt kept close in 
the towne, and dared not fight with us. We could at that 
tyme have made up but a thousand armed men, besides our 
troopes of horse ; we had made a period of Mungarrett's Rebel- 
lion, and of all those that were then out in the countyes of 
Corke and Limbricke ; wee, seeing wee could do no execution 
uppon them, returned to our old quarters. There was good 
service done in our marche by our scoutes, and by the Provost- 
Marshall, Captayno Peasely, and his horse. 

" Sir John Brown, knight, Lieue-tennant Carleton, and my 
selfe, with four other gentlemen, which did ride abroad as 
scoutes to discover the enenn*, took prisoner Miles FitzHarris, 
enquire, and his man, as they were riding to Kiimallock unto 
the Lord of Mungarrctt, who had sent for him to have made 
him governor of the said towne, as did appear by his Lordship's 
letter, which was found in Fitzllarris his ]>ockett; was found 
also with him the articles and covenants which the Priests 
and ffryars sweare the people to observe and mayntayne to the 
losse of their goods and lives ; 1 know you have seen a copy 
of these, therefore I forbear to mention them ; hee being a 
little threatened by some of our company, promised threescore 
pound for his ransome, the which he sent his man ]>er8onally 
for unto his castle ; it was very welcome, for money was very 
scarce amongst us, but my Lord President coming presently up 
with the army, and hearing Fitzllarris his answere, truely 
waying the cause, and his former caryage and service since the 
rebellion of others in the country, upon his faythfull promise 
then made of his future loyalty, caused the said money to be 
restored, and sett bim free. 



834 HARSH ALSTOWN. [CLOTITE. 

" Two days after FitzHarris setting at liberty, the Lord 
Mungarrett and his great army, the like whereof was never 
seen in Mounster, came unto us at Ballahoura aforesaid, and 
in their marche tooke the Castles of Ballahey, and Dod*s Cas- 
tle was yielded to them uppon quarter, for which the Lord 
President was highly offended with the counstable of the said 
castle, but his Lordship is merciful! to all Protestants, though 
he much hates a coward. 

" The first of Mungarrett's huge multitude, and many pikes, 
which made as great a show as a spacious wood adjoyning to 
them, nothing daunted the aforesaid Lords and Captaynes, nor 
any of their troupers, for I protest unto you there was not a 
man in our army but had a desire to have fought with them, 
and the rather because wee expected them long and suffered 
many of us much want, yet I dare say they were twenty for 
one ; odds enough they had, yet they dust not descend the hill, 
and come unto us in the playne, where wee did encamp not 
much above muskett shott from them ; we had not any of 
our foot companyes in the field that day — they were all in the 
towne of Mallow, five miles from our campe, to which place my 
Lord President thought good to make his repayre, it being 
almost night, and the countrey people were flocking into Mun- 
garrett's army. 

"When we came to Donnorayle, my Lord President left 
Lieue>tennant John Downing to keep and defend the castle, 
with fifty shott, which kept it faythfully (Lieue-tennant Dow- 
ning is a stout p.y. (i.^. pretty) man, and one that hath don 
good service). We made no other stay, but presently marched 
on our way to Mallow, where we quartered that night. 

"The next day my Lord President, with his troupe, the Lord 
of Dungarvane, and some of the foote companyes, marched to 
the citty of Corke ; his Lordship thought it the best policy to 
make good the port Townes and strong Holds. 

" The Earle of Barrimore, with his troupe, my Lord of Brog- 
hill's troupe, and the remaynder of the foote companyes, 
marched towards the port towne of Youghall, and did save at 
Mallow, for Mr. William Dampeere, and for the English in 
those partes, what cattle wee could, and brought them with us 
to the Earle of Barrimore's Castle, at Castle Lyons. The next 
day the companyes that marched to Yoghall drove them there, 
and relieved the towne beside ; many of them were transported 
from this kingdom, which I conceive to be an act of charity in 
the said Earle, and ought highly to be commended. 

" My Lord's troupe marched home to Lismore. Within four 
or five dayes wee came home, newes was brought unto my 
Lord that the Rebles of Cundan's countrey had robbed and pil- 
laged divers of our neighbourhood, whereuppon his Lordship 
was very mach displeased, and caused fifty horse and thirty 



CLOTNB.] MARSHALSTOWN. 335 

musketeers to be made ready ; and he rode in p.son to their 
place of rendavouze. When wee came neare Lieue-tennant 
roore's castle wee descryde a troupe of horse, to the number of 
threescore or more thereabout, wee made up unto them with 
all speed, but they tooke the advantage of the ground, and 
kept under a quicksett hedge, and placed some musketeers in 
a ditch adjoining, which made some few shott unto us, but did 
us no hurt ; we no sooner came over the said ditch but we 
perceaved twelve coulers, no souldiers with them but the 
Ensignes ; their army lay at the bottom of the hill, but uppon 
notice given them of our approach, they suddenly made up unto 
their coulers (for they are nimble, swift footmen ; they usually 
march as fast as their horse). As soon as they came unto their 
. coulers they fell into rankes and files, and made as neat and 
warlike a body as ever Rebles did make in Ireland for the 
quantity of men they had. Their number of foote was 1,500, 
well armed, beside the country people that followed the army. 
My Lord charged them home, and made their horse retreat unto 
their foote ; their army durst not advance a long time, seeing his 
Lordship*s stout resolution, by which means we saved our foote. 
"At length, Colonell or Captaine Butler came out from the 
army, and desired to parleo with us, whereuppon a gentleman 
of our troupe, one Smithy, roade unto him, and as soon as 
he came neare Butler asked him when my Lord did intend to 

five them battle, hee made answer hee could not resolve him, 
ut hee thought it was a very unreasonable motion, considering 
our handful of men unto their multitude ; and he made known 
unto him that my Lord, when hee came forth, was informed 
they were but a company of cow-stealers, and had hee any way 
known of their great army hee would have come better pro- 
vided, yet hee thought we were able to encounter with them, 
and so departed from him, only telling him it was his best 
course to return home with his army the way hee came, and 
hee doubted not but Mr. Gerrald, of Coolesshine, would furnish 
them with boates to carry them over the Blackwater, and 
entertayne them as formerly. Butler made answer that was not 
their intent ; they came not over to that end ; but hee did 
hope they would do better service before they did depart the 
countrey. My Lord, uppon Smythye's retume and answere, 
had a full intent to have fought with them, but his Lordship 
was p.suaded to the contrary by some noblemen of the com- 
pany, and the Portrifie of the town of Lismoreeue, Bryan 
Cavernor, an honest, religious man, and one that hates Popery. 
" That night the enemy marched to the towne of Tollow ; 
the next day they, sett about the taking of a strong house, 
called Ballianker, in which house was a gentleman, one Croker, 
and his wife, with throe or four men more ; they defended it 
manfully until! their powder and shott was spent ; they killed 



336 MARSllALbTOWN. [CLOYNE. 

and wounded many of the Rebells ; but seeing they could no 
longer niayntayne fires with them, yeelded uppon quarter; 
but Captayne Ifennell most p.fidiously caused the said Croker 
the next day to be shott in could bloud, as they say, and the 
poore men to hang each other in a field adjoining to the said 
house, which I think all niarshall men and souldiers will iudge 
to be a most barborous, inhumane act ; therefore, I cannot but 
note him with a black cole, though a discontented gentleman, 
as hee termes himself. 

" The day following they besieged us at Lismore, but in the 
morning before their coming there came four companycs uppon 
the other side of us, which took boate at Afiane. Corporal 
Ffoucks, and some othor of our troupe which were out abroad 
as scoutes, discovered them, and not knowing of their number 
of men, but thinking they had been oncly but cow-stealers and 
pillagers, made n]> unto them, an<l discharged at Captayne 
ffennell, hee brin^^ing up their army, or rather raged regiment, 
and ffennell likewise unto him ; in the sqirmish fiennell's 
horse was shott, whereuppon word was brought to the towne 
that Corporal Ffourks was kilM. Cv^ronctt Downing hearing 
of it lead some few other gentlemen, they presently made unto 
them. The Coronett being a bohl man, and of a very forward 
spiritt, roade up close to Ffennell, and discharged his carbine 
at him ; Ffennell having gotten a fresh horse, hee mist him ; 
but, as the Coronett wheeled about, one of FfennelTs choyce 
shott, an old fowler, which did usually runnc by his horse side, 
with his fowling piece, shott him in the back through his 
armour and body, which made him presently fall from his 
horse. Your bntther, Coronett Joanes, that now is in his 
place, seeing him fall, shott at Captayne Ffennell, and likewise 
hee at him againe ; they made two or three shott each to 
other j your brother having discharged his carbine and pistolls, 
unsheathed his swonl, and challenged the Captayne to fight 
with him, when the shott from their army came flying about 
his eares ; but their great Captaine refused it, and retreated to 
the army. Your brother brought off the Coronett's horse in 
despite of them all ; there was one of our men more kil'd in 
the fight ; their corps could not possibly be brought of by us, 
they played so fast upon us with their shott. 

" What number of men were kil'd one their side wee could 
not learne, in regard they were mastors of the ffield. 

" That night they quartered in the schoole-house and the 
alms-house of Lismore, anil in other houses in the towne, which 
were out and free from shott of the castle. Their centinells 
which were in the church-yard had a welcome with some shot 
from a turret t of the castle. 

" The next day a gentleman, one Bayline, came to the cas- 
tle with a drummer before bim^ and made known unto my 



CLOYKE.] MAR8HAL8TOWN. 337 

Lord that his Generairs pleasure was, that his Honor would be 
pleased to surrender the castle unto him before such tyme as 
there was any great effusion of blood made ; for his full intent 
and purpose was to have it ; and if his Lordship would yield it 
up quietly, he should have a safe convoy for himself, and for all 
such as did belong unto him to Yoghall, or Corke, or unto any 
other Porte Towne in the Province. 

*' My Lord told him he was not acquainted with such kind of 
languadge, and that, for his own parte, hee was resolved to live 
and dye in the Castle, and hee thought all the men he had 
would doe the like in defending and niayntayning it against his 
pretended Generall and all others that could assault it, and 
wished him to take that for an absolute answere; so Mr. Bayline 
only drank three or four glasses of wine and aquavitc, and 
departed. 

^' My Lord is a vigilant man ; hee placed good guards and 
strong watch upon every place of the Castle and Courte, and 
none but such as wore men of trust ; and likewise upon every 
quarter of the Garden and Gate, though his Lordship watched 
himsolfe three nighttt together, encouraging his souldiers, and 
seeing they might not want things fitting, nor any of the poor 
people of the Towne and Countrey which came to the Castle 
for the safety of their lives. 

** My honourable Lady was newly brought to bedd of a child, 
otherwise,! dare Fay, she would likewise have watched in person; 
for she is a lady that truly fears God, abhors and detests Bebles, 
and I know but few men in the land will shoot off a fowling 
peece better or necrer the marke than her Ladyship. 

*' My Lord was not forgetfull of the dead corps of Coronett 
Downing, but sent his Trumpeter, one John Downing, and 
others, to the enemyes army for it. They gave leave for the 
bringing of it to the Towne, but wished withall that no minister 
should bury him, for hee dyed one of their Religion, a Roman 
Catholic, wherein I am p'suaded, and ])artly know, they wronged 
him highly, for he had, at the very first shott, his death wound, 
and after that he was not sensible of anything they said or did 
unto him. I buried him in the Cathedral Church of Lismore, 
and as he was layed into the ground, ho had a volley of shott 
given him by our soldiers in the church-yard, mauger the 
eares of those proud Popish priests and Rebles that quartered 
in the Towne. 

" Captayne Broadrige, who is Captayne of the Castle under 
my Lord, is a man of an undaunted spirritt, a faithfull, honest 
man, and one that hath acted the part of a brave commander, 
especially when the Rebels were in the Towne. Tour brother, 
the Coronett, and hee are intimate, loving friends. I think yoa 
knew him, therefore I forbear to write any more of him at tbia 
tyme.

« My Lord, sir, being both yoang and active, thought of 
a way to fight this domaneering, yet cowarde, and fearfuU 
anny. The way was this : — Hee caused all the ordnance, 
morderers, harqaebusses, muskets, carbines, and pistollsy that 
were in the Castle to be shott off at once, and with the same seot 
them word by a man home (whom) my Lord did most confide 
in, that the English army was come to the Towne, for we heard 
they had intercepted the Earle of Corkers letters, which his 
Lordship sent, of the landing at Youghall of Colonell Lanester. 
This sudden noise and thundering shott did strike such terror 
into the heartes of those guilty and wicked persons, that they 
presently furdled up their coulors, and runne away to the 
blackwater to take boate at Afiane, where they came over for 
the most part of them ; many runne a contrary way. I believe 
they never saw theire coulors again ; but this day we pursued 
them with fifty horse or thereabouts, and killed many of theniy 
and many wee tooke prisoners, who had very bad musketts 
and pikes. The Gaptayne of the last company that tooke 
boate, one Prendergrace, escaped us yeiy narrowly ; he left 
his stately mantle behind him, and was iajne to trust to his 
nimble heeles, that commonly proved their best defence. I 
heartily wish wee had a considerable number of men there for 
their sakes. We took from them two hundred and fifty head 
of cattle, most of them were oxen and cowes of the English 
breed ; we took also six or seven hundred sheepe, a great many 
horses and garrons, all which they had stolen in the country 
from Englishmen. Ton might the next day have bought in 
Lismore a good cowe for eighteen pence, a garron for five 
pence, and a sheepe for three pence. Wo took likewise their 
wagons, and a number of scaling ladders, that five or six at 
once might go up abreast ; they are in the Castle at Lismore 
at thb day. And thus, by the Providence of God, as the 
primary efficient, and the forecast and manhood of this hono- 
rable Lord, the subordinate instrument, the Rebles were shame- 
fully chased away, the Castle preserved, and many hundreds of 
poore people, women and children for the most part, that did 
fly there for succour, escaped their furey, and not so much as 
one of them hurted. 

'' The next day wee did make them sensible of their errors in 
the Towne and Countrey that did consort themselves with them. 

" Within five or six dayes wee had put those Rebles to flight, 
newes came unto my Lord that the Lord President, the Earl of 
Barrimore, the Lord of Dunffarvane, Sir William Courtney, 
Colonell Lanester, and what forces could well be spared from 
the Port Townes and Castles, would all meet at Lismore the 
second day of March, and so quarter there that night, and 
the next day march to the Towne of Dungarvan, which was 
p'formed accordingly. 



OIOTKS.] MARSHALSTOWK. 339 

" My Lord road to Castle Lyons to meet the Lord President, 
and brought his Lordship home with him, which was taken 
very loveingly, and in good part. Uppon our march between 
Lismore and Castle Lyons theire were killed divers of the Rebles. 
Wee took the Castle of Turbeath, which Mr. Richard Candane 
had formerly taken from Mr. Osborne's scrvantes, and burnt all 
the honses in Cundane's countrey and this side of the Black- 
water ; there were also taken some few prisoners. Most of the 
gentlemen of the countrey were at the Towne of Eillurd, alias 
Fleetewood plantation, uppon the other side of the water. 

" Wednesday, the third day of March, wee, our army, 
marched from Lismore towards the Towne of Dungarvane, 
killed some in the way, took many prisoners, and burnt all the 
Cabins in the Countrey. My Lord President's troupe and my 
Lord's troope marched some 4 or 5 miles before the army. 
When we came near Sir Richard Osborne's Castle, about three 
miles from Dungarvane, wee saw seven companyes with their 
coulors displayed, nigh opposite unto us, only a river between 
us and a little bogg. Wee made all possible speede we could to 
a ford to gett over the river that wee might gett before them, 
to keep them from marching home to the Towne; but they 
marched an exceeding fast pace, insomuch that wee were no 
sooner in the ford but they were within muskett shott of us, 
and discharged at us. The river was so deep that our horses 
were enforced to swime. Wee seeing what advantage they had 
of us, wheeled about, and came forth out of the river, and 
galloped up to another foorde a mile from it, and ptssed over 
safe before such time as they could make unto us. They seeing 
wee had gotten before them, fell into a body, close by a wood- 
side, a little more than muskett shott of us. Wee braved each 
other awhile; at length wee made towards them. They seeing 
our carbines all ported, and my Lord and Captayne Bridge's 
colonesse, and discrying with all our army, presently furdled up 
their cotdors, and fled with all haste towards the passage of 
Yoghall, and to caves in the wood. There were many of them 
taken and killed in their flight, and many more theire had byn 
had not the woods and boggs byn their especiall friends. 

" That night the Lord President and the rest of the Lords 
lay at Sir Richard Osborne's Castle, and our army quartered 
betweene the Castle and the towne. Our scoutes took, that 
night, a gentleman and his man, which were riding to Dun- 
garvane, but hanging prevented them. 

*' Thursday morning being the 4th day of March, our army, 
between eight and nine of the clock, came close before the 
towne of Dungarvane. Wee took it within three hours fight, and 
burned most of the houses which were theatched,and burnt like- 
wise a stately stone house, well slatted, of one Mr. Hoares, adjoin- 
ing to the towne. There were divers gentlemen and others that 
Toil. n. z 2

escaped over the strand a horseback, the water being then 
fordable, for it was the beginning of the floud. 

^ My Lord President p^ceeveing it, caused a squadron of the 
best shott to make to the strand with all haste, which killed many 
of the Rebles, notwithstanding many escaped, where-uppon my 
Lord caused a party of horse of every troupe to be chosen oiity 
to ride to the other side of the river, and bume the Towne uppon 
that side, and kill as many as came over ; wee were forty horse 
nppon that service. Captayne George Welch, who is now in 
this citty, was with us, and behaved liimself valiantly, and did 
good service to my owne knowledge, for I was an eye-witness 
unto it. Wee burned the towne on that side the strand ac- 
cording unto our directions. There were killed by our party 
of horse some fifty, and I think there were killed and hanged 
the like number on the other side of the Towne, and in the 
towne were many killed, which were thrown into the sea. 
There is not any one man, I dare say, can tell certainly how 
many were killed and drowned ; some say 200, some 300, and 
some 400, but I am of the opinion 200 were the most that were 
slayne. At night our forty horse returned to the towne one 
the other side, and quartered there ; those that were in the 
Castle stood out, and shott at us : they killed 4 of our men, 
and hurted three or four more, that was all the lost and hurt 
one our side. Sir John Browne was shot from the Castle 
through the coat in many places with slugs and quarter shott, 
yet hurted not his body. Hee is a daynty brave-spirited gentle- 
man, and one the Rebles do much dread. 

" Saturday morning, the 6th of March, they yeelded the 
Castle in the towne, to depart uppon this quarter, to march 
away like souldiers, their coulors flying, and their bagpipes 
before them, the which was granted them, and p*formed ac- 
cordingly. My Lord was noble in his promises, and would 
not take an example by their kind of quarter, but I believe 
they had not had so good quarter could wee have gotten any 
good place to have quartered our horses in, they could not 
have stood out long, for our shott kept them from water. They 
that were in the Castle and the other side of the towne had 
quarter to depart only with their lives and wearing cloathes. 
There was great store of pillage taken in the Towne by our 
souldiers, and a good quantity of excellent Spanish Iron, which 
was brought about to Yoghall in Mr. William's pinnace. The 
same day the Castles were yeelded wee returned to Lismore 
with victory and spoyle, and wo burned all the Rebles corne in 
our march that was in those partes, and killed many of the 
Rogues that were their spyes in the countrey. 

" Six or seven of our troupes that went foorth in morning as 
scoutes and to bume some cabins, mett with some pillage ; the 
enemy surprized them, and killed two or three of theui.

Lieur-tDnnant Poore, with eight or nyne troops, took a Castle 
three miles from the Towne of Dungarvaue. He is a very 
honest gentleman, and one that hath mayntayned his Castle of 
Ballagarren in despite of those bands of Rebles; for Captayne 
Butler, and Captayne Ffennell, with three or four other Cap- 
taynes, besieged him at once, beside the countrey people. 

" Saturday night, Sunday, and Sunday night, our array 
quartered at Lisraore, and at the Towne of Tollow, two miles 
from it 

" Monday morning, being the seventh day of March, we 
marched to Castle Lyons, and in our march wee had routed the 
Rebles in Cundan^s countrey had not my Lord President heard 
of Sir Donagh M'Carty, Lord of Muskrye's rebellion. We 
quartered that night at Castle Lyons, the Earle of Barrimore's 
towne; his Honour gave the Lords, Commanders, and Common 
Souldiers, noble entertaynment. He is of a most noble, gene- 
rous, free nature, full of humanity and Christian charity, and no 
less pious and truly vertuous ; he hath sermons in his chapel 
duely twice a-day, Sundayes, SVednesdayes, and Fridayes. 

*' His Lordship received all the English that were robbed and 
stripped in Lord Roche's and Cundon*s countrey, and his 
Right Honourable and religious Countess cloathed a great many 
of them, and amongst the rest, my wife and children, who were 
robbed and stripped in the said countrey, when the great and 
strong Castle of Cloghleagh was ycelded up unto Mr. Richard 
Cundane, wherein were most of the inhabitants of the market- 
to wne of Killurd, and some of the inhabitants of the market- 
towne of Clogheene and Ffermoy, and divers of the parishioners 
of Leitrim and Clandullane, all which the said Earle kept a long 
time in his castle, and afterwards sent his troape with them, and 
convayed them safe to Yoghall. I hope his loyalty, good service, 
and cnarity expended on those and many hundreds more of 
distressed Protestantes, will not long go unrewarded; however, 
I am confidant he shall have an everlasting reward. 

"There are at least forty familyes uppon his Lordship's care 
and charge at this day, which were robbed and pillaged out of 
all they had. His Lordship hath had many invitations and 
letters from the Lord of Muscry, and the Lord Roch, and other 
gentlemen of the countrey to joyne with them, which his 
Honour detesteth and scornes. The copie of Ix)rd Muscrye*s 
letter I have here inserted. 

" * My dear Lord, 

" * Uppon the first rising in armes of the Ulstermen,and after 
of Leinster and Counaughtmen, against the King and common- 
wealth, as I then conceived, I do confesse I did as much abhor 
and detest their insurrection, and wished as evill successe to 
i that their desperate attempt, as I took it, as either English or 
Irish coald wish, untill at length, uppon better consideration. 



842 MABSHALSTOWN. [OLOTNK. 

having examined all the wayes I could for finding out the true 
grounds of that insarrection, I found out the cause of their 
discontent and rising in armes was the apparent ruin and 
destruction threatened to Catholic Religion, King, and Countrie, 
which I did not altogether helieve to be the grounds of their 
quarrell till I saw aU Munster either rise or ready to rise out, 
whereat I was so much amazed that I did most seriously ex- 
postulate with all or the most part of the province of Munster, 
then with the rest to dive into the true cause of their discon- 
tent, who all protested that they wished no harm to the King 
of England nor any English whatsoever; but that apprehending 
a general fear of prosecution, ruin, and destruction to Religion^ 
King, and Countrie, they were fearful and sensible thereof that 
they held it more safe and honourable for them to expose their 
lives and fortunes to all hazards for justification of these three 
than to be of the happiest conditions without assurance of en- 
joying them ; which reason so prevayled with me that I have 
joyned with the rest of the kingdom with a full resolution 
to hazard my life and estate or mayntayne the Catholic Roman 
Religion, his Majestie's prerogative, and Royal attributes to 
the government and ancient prlvaliges of the poore kingdom 
of Ireland, established and allowed by the Common Lawe of 
England. 

'''My Lord, these three poyntes are so reasonable that I doubt 
not but your Lordship (if you believe that they are the cause 
of our quarrell), will rather further them than offer to hinder 
our present designs. For the first, it is so cleare that I will not 
argue it ; the second, I know your Lordship will advance and 
iustify to your power as much as any subject can doe ; and 
without the benefit of the third there is no living, for your 
Lordship or your posterity in this poore countrie; and if your 
Lordship doe believe this to be the true motives and grounds 
of our discontent, the least of them is enough to invite your 
Lordship to ioyne with us in so honest and honourable an 
action ; when if you should thinke to be remiss or refractory, 
our forces are ready, and have vowed to endeavour the de- 
struction both of your life and estate. If your Lordship doubt 
of the truth and honesty of our quarrell, and the cause thereof, 
wee shall be ready and very glad to give you all satisfaction 
therein, and if you please to give credit to p'ticular relation, 
I protest uppon my creditt, there is no worldly respect could 
make me forgett my loyalty to his Majestie. My Lord, as well 
as I wish your Lordship (and although I have used all my 
endeavours to keepe my kinsmen and adherents from going 
into your countrey), if you come not presently and joyne with 
us, you must expect present ruine, and though I were resolved 
not to stirre nor ioyne with the countrey as I have done, I 
have such burning and killing of men, women, and children, 
without regard of age or quality, that I expect not safety

«a7thMartii,164i; 

" Thursday the eiffht of March. — My Lord President and 
Colonell Lanester and their forces marcned from Castle Lyons 
to the citty of Corke, and they gott into the citty in good 
tyme, for the Lord of Moaskery had wa3rsted his countrey and 
was very strong. The strongest CasUe his Lordship hath 
wherein he usually livith is within three miles of the citty, the 
name of it is Castle Blarney. 

''The Irish in those partys say it is one of the strongest 
Castles in Ireland; I have byn often in it, and I find it to be a 
place of great strength. 

"The late Lord, Sir Charles M'Cartee, built two or three 
walls about the said Castle, and walled the garden with very 
strong walls and turrets with battlements, and contrived many 
plans of defence. I could heartily wish our English army were 
the owners of it 

" I had almost forgotten to acquaint you how my Lord of 
Broghill took Roche's Castle of the Towreene, neere Lismore, 
and caused the countrey people to go forward in ploughing 
their land, which I conceive to be very good service. 

" The Lord of Eillenmeaky hath don very great service of 
late in the west partes of the county of Gorke, and about the 
towne of Bandon-bridge, took the Castle of Eilbrittayne, 
M'Cartee Reaughe's chief castle, the Castle of Pollalong, and 
divers other strong houses, and plundered the countrey. 

** I know you cannot but have a true relation of it being 
here, and many in this citty which went with his Lordship in 
the said service. In taking of the Short Castle of Mallow, Mun« 

rirrett lost seven score of his men, and there were not above 
shott defended the said castle, they kept it so stoutly that 
after the enemy had made a breech or two they gave them 
quarter, which was p'formed accordingly by the Lord Mungar- 
rett contrary to the Lord Roche's minde, as I have byn in- 
formed. However it was, I am assured there was a great fsdling 
out betweene the two Lords, and many of the Lord Roche's men 
killed in the broyle. Twenty men killed and hurted of his 
Lordship's at the least, as the souldiers reported that were 
there; and to end the difference they burnt a great part of the 
spoyle, which was in the said Short Castle. 



344 MAB8HAL8TOWN. [CLOTNB. 

** The CundoDS doe much mischief near Fennoy and Castle 
Lyons, they killed at one tyme three and twenty of the Earl 
of Barrimore*8 troopes that roade to Coole, an English planta- 
tion, about a mile from the Towne, to fetch come. It was a most 
barbarous oruell murder : I trust the all-seeing eye of the 
Almighty will not suffer it go long unpunished. 

''To acauaint you, sir, with the overthrow, we gave the 
Lord of Muskery, near Corke, with 500 musketeers and a 
hundred-fifty horse, and how his Lordship's tent was taken there 
by our souldiers, and his armour for his owne body, would be 
true though stale newes, for I am sure you have seen part of 
the passages in print. 

" The Lord of Muskery escaped with life very narrowly at 
that tyme. I heard when his Lordship came home to the 
Blarney, he fell out very sore with his Ladye for p'suading him 
to ioyne with the countrey, in their rebellious actions and des- 
perate attempt. 

'* Great 0*I)onovane, as the Irish call him, whose father was 
a most notorious rebel, doth much spoylc about the Leape, 
Castle- hevane, Ban try, Rossecarbery, and divers other places. 
His &ther burnt the townc of Ilosse the last wars, and he or 
his souldiers most inhumanely killed a daughter of the old 
Lord Bishop Lyons, that was both deafe and dumb, yet he 
came in uppon his p*tection and saved his lands. I believe 
this 0* Done vane doth hope bee shall have the like ffavour, and 
my neighbours, the Cundons,as the Arch Rebel their grandfather 
had ; but I doubt not but they are mightily mistaken, for there 
will never any Englishman that is a Protestant dwell neare 
them, I am p*suaded, let them pTess what love and loyalty 
they will hereafter. 

" O'Sulliavane-Beere, Teige O'Dounce, Fflorence M'Cartee, 
of the Castle of Banduffe, Black O'CuIlane, and other fTree- 
holders, neere Rosse, ioyne their forces together, and have 
taken great store of pillage, and robbed the English about the 
Ban try, Kilcoe, Affadowne, Balledahab, Landore, Cloghmakilty, 
and Inniskeane, Castletowne, alias Poldenstowne, the town of 
Rosse, and all those partes. 

" The Rebles have made a slaughter-house of the Cathedral 
Church of Rosse, and dayly kill their cowes and sheepe in it. 
My father came lately over and makes known so much. He 
hath lived in the said town thirty years and more, and hath 
byn a good part of the tyme Treasurer of the said church. 

Master Arthur ffreake and my ffather-in-law (Thos.) Boyle 
with others, the inhabitants of Rosse, have very manfully and 
bravely defended the Castle of Rosse Barry, near Rosse, in 
despite of all the Rebles doinges, and have done very good 
service against them. 

" They now want bread, beare, and other provisions, for 



CLOTNB.] HAttSdALSTOWN. 345 

tlieir store was long since exhausted ; they had no beare in the 
Castle these foarteen weeks ; but by help of a logh, which doth 
almost mote the castle round, they live, though poorely. 

^ I have a sonne in tlie said Castle, and there are many 
women and children in it ; it is a hold of great consequence, 
therefore I hope theire will bo a course taken that it may 
speedily bee relieved. 

^* Bandon Bridge men, I hearc, desire some aide ; for the enemy 
doth now begin to grow strong in those partes, and victualls 
is very very scarce in the towne. 

'' Tbe English inhabitants and souldiers that are in the 
Castles of MacoUop, Balladuffe, Mungeely, and Kilmacow, neere 
the towne of Tallow, have done good service, and mayntayncd 
those holds stoutly and bravely, the enemy trembles at the 
very nameing of Cnptayne Pyne, Carter, Russell, Jackson, and 
Curdry, who are the chief commanders of those Castells, and 
also at the naming of a Minister, one Mr. Robert Crewcs, who 
is in Macollop Castle, the common sort of Irish say cuniures 
amongst them. 

'* Cloghleagh Castle and Dungallane Castle, the enemy still 
mayntaynes and keepes ; they are two very strong castles, but 
they want water both of them. Daniell M'Shane 0'Br3ran is cap- 
tayne of Dungullane Castle ; he hath a company of desperate 
nauglity fiellows about him ; they came to a gentleman, a 
parishioner of myne, whose land lyeth in Leitrim, one James 
FitzGerald, who is now maryed unto the Lord of Muskery's aunt, 
and p*sttaded him to leave his thatched house in Letrim, and 
goe with them to the said Castle of Dnngallane, and theire they 
would create him Earle of Desmond, and put him in possession 
of all his lands. The gentleman being a very weak man both 
of body and minde, was soon p'suaded, and went with them, 
and theire he is yet for anything I know to the contrary. 

'* I believe the gentlewoman, his wife, hath store of money 
and plate there with her. To my knowledge there is store of 
plate, brass, pewter, iron potts, and ffeather beds in those two 
Castles, and amongst the rest there is four of mine. 

*' I hope I shall see the demolishing of those castles, or a 
strong ward of English in them ; they are the places of refuge 
for the Rtibles of all that countrey, and, indeed, they were the 
bane of the English in those partes, and of all the travellers that 
passed that way, and they were the occasion of the death of 
many hundreds of Englishmen the last warrs in Ireland, as I 
have been creditably informed. 

** The souldiers which doe belone unto the Cundane of £il- 
gnllane Castle, in the parish Marshelstown, and unto Mr. Ulicke 
Roche, a chief freeholder in those partes, commit many out- 
rages and stealthes. Sir William Ffentou*s butler, I heard, 



346 MAB8HALST0WN. [OLOTVIB, 

killed the yoang captayne, Mr. Roche's sonne^ neere Micheals- 
town, where hee came in the night with his ragged tren to

" I know not well how the old Ulick Roche, of the castle of 
Balleclogh, doth behave himself. There is a quondam parishioner 
of rajne, an Englishman, one Robert Nixon, in the castle with 
him. 

'' The Lord Roche's castle of Glannor is a strong place, vet 
I heare but a weak ward in it. Oar army took his Lordship's 
castle of Castletowne lately, wherein was a thousand people at 
least, his lady was in the castle there ; they yeelded, as my 
ffriend, Mr. Rouckhood, of Corke, informeth me, uppon quarter 
to depart with their lives and wearing apparrell. 

" Our army took also great O'Callahane's Castle lately. 

''The Lord of Inchaquin and Captayne Gipson have given of 
late a great overthrow to the Rebles, 4 miles from Mallow, 
neere the towne of Broghill and the mountayne's foote. 

" My Lord of Broghill relieved Sir Richard Osborne's Castle, 
and brought him home with him to Lismore very lately, and 
killed two hundred of the Rebles, which had besieged the 
Castle. I believe they will never besiege that Castle any 
more, because they have had such ill success ; for I was witn 
my Lord in the beginning of March last, when wee put many 
hundreds of them to flight ; they had besieged it then, and 
killed many of them, and took some prisoners. 

" There were killed by the Lord of Inchaquin's troupe and 
others, they say for certayne that came out of the county of 
Corke, 400 of the Rebles; and they took 4 ensigns and 3 drum- 
mers from them, with a great deal of good pillage ; but there is 
great doubt of keeping of them, if speedy helpe bee not pre- 
sently sent over, for the Rebles are very strong in the county of 
Limbricke, and have threatened not to be long away from the 
county of Corke. 

" And thus hoping wee shall shortly have the victory of all 

the Rebles, and a strong garrison awhile kept in every market- 

towne of any strength, I commend you unto God for the 

present, and will for ever remayne, as I have professed myselfe,

in Hampshire, was son of Bey. Antony Eingsmill, V. Bregoge, 
q. V. He was baptized at MUton, near Sittingboame, in Sent, 
on 2nd September, 1604. 

He was ordained Deacon on 4th January, 1633, and Priest 
on 3rd February, same year, both by Richard, Bp. of Cork. 

He was, from 1633 to 1660 (?) V. Mogeesha and Rostillan ; 
from 161^5 to 1660 (?) R. Mogeesha and Rostillan ; and from 
1637 to 1660 (?) R. V. Dingindonovan, Clonmult, and Bally- 
spillane. 

On 25th January, 1642, Augustine Kingsmill, of Barry's- 
court, in the parish of Carrigtwohill, Clerk, depones on oath 
that be was robbed and forcibly despoiled, on or about the 25th 
December, 1641, or thereabouts, of his goods and chattels, &c., 
worth £600, partly consisting of ^ debts due from these rebells 
following," . . • besides the loss of the benefits of the 
his church living, worth, communibus annis,£200. [MS. T.C.D. 
P. 2. 18.] 

He died intestate. Administration of the will of Rev. 
Augustine Kingsmell, of Bally tubber-oughte (Ballyonghtra ?) 
county Cork, was granted on 16th June, 1669, to Henry 
Kingsmell, his '* nepos.** He is stated in the memoir of the 
Byam family to have married Elisabeth, dau. of Rev. E. Byam, 
Precentor of Cloyne, q. v.; and the author of that memoir 
states that letters of administration were granted in 1669 to 
Elisabeth, the relict of Reverend Augustine Kingsmill. 

In his titles to Dingindonovan, he is styled Rev. Augustine 
Kingsmill, senior. Perhaps there were two clergymen of this 
name. 

These Kingsmills were of kin to William Kingsmill, of BaUy- 
owen, county Cork, who, by his wife, Ursula (dan. of Sir 
Warham St Leger, and sister of Sir William St. Leger), had 
two sons, John, who died Sp. ; and William, who had a 
daughter, Mary, wife of Ulysses Burgh, Bp. of Ardagh. 

The first-mentioned William Kingsmill is thus noticed by 
Smith in his history of Cork. 

" The first act of hostility committed in Munster was on the 
20th of November, 1641, when the rabble plundered Mr. 
William Kingsmill, of Ballyowen, brother-in-law to the Lord 
President St. Leger, who, with some forces, soon revenged the 
loss." [Smith's Cork, vol. 2, p. 118.]

executed the same on the 3rd of February, that year. Il

district, in the remarkable manner described by Rev. John 
Richardson, in his book, entitled ** A Short History of the at- 
tempts that have been ma<]e to convert the Popish Nation of 
Ireland to the Establish'd Religion, &c. By John Richardson, 
Rector of Annah, alias Belturbet^ &c" Loudon, 1712, pp. 37, 
38. 

"The Reverend Mr. Walter Atkio, Treasurer of the Cathe- 
dral Church of Cloyne, and Vicar of the parish of Midleton, 
in the county of Cork, and diocese of Cloyne, was the next who 
put his hand strenuously to this work, whereof I had the follow- 
ing account from himself : — Soon after he was collated, he set 
himself to acquire a competent knowledge in the Irish tongue, 
to which he was not altogether a stranger before. Then he 
proceeded to perform the Offices of Religion to the natives, in 
their own language, to which end the Earl of luchiquin fur- 
nished him with an Irish Common Prayer Book, and the Bishop 
of Cloyne gave him encouragement. He buried their Dead 
according to the Liturgy of our Church, which the Living 
liked 80 well that they expressed great devotion at it, and 
joined their voices in the Lord*s Prayer, and the responses 
before it. And one of them was heard to say at a burial in the 



390 TBMPLEHfiClBBIOT, — TBBASUBERS. [CUm 

churcb-yard of the Cathedral, ' That if they could haTe th 
Service always, they wonld go no more to Mass.* In prooc 
of time, his labours of this kind became so acceptable to tl 
Natives, that they sent for him, of their accord, from all pu 
of his parish, to baptize their children, to visit their sick, 
bury their Dead, to church their Women, and to solemni 
Matrimony to such of them as were to be married, in8omo< 
that he hath married six or eight couple of a day. And one 
the natives being dangerously sick, told him, ' That if he wool 
attend him in his extremities, he would not send for the Romii 
Priest.' And by these means, this worthy gentleman left tl 
Popish Priest so little to do in his parish, that one of the ebi 
of the natives, ' desired him to forbear marrying so many ( 
them, because this being an article of great profit to the Popii 
Clergy, the Priest would starve for want of bread, if it wei 
taken from him.* This hath been Mr. Atkin^s practice fi 
several years, and he continues it with the same success." 

Ue married, in 1699, at Dublin, Elizabeth, daughter < 
Thomas Coningsby, esq., of Nien Solars, Salop, and coosii 
gerniain of Thomas, Earl Coningsby (Extinct Peerage). B 
this lady, who died 4th November, 1715, and was huried i 
Midleton, where is her monument, he had issue : — 1. Jobi

400 TULULEASE. [CLOTNB. 



TULLILEASK 

" Berichter, of Tulach-leis, died on the 6th of December,'' 
Addo 839. [Four Masters.] Dr. Reeves has published an 
interesting account of St Beretchert, of Tulljlease, [i.e., the 
hill of the nuts], whose tombstone is still to be seen in the old 
ruined church, with the legend ; — " qui cum qus9 hunc titulum 
legerit orat pro berechtuine." Dr. Reeves observes that the 
glebe land, " though it is now alienated,** seems *' to have been 
enclosed by a circular fence, having the church nearly as centre. 
Tradition represents it as about 18 acres in extent; but the 
Down Survey (No. 26, B.M. of the county of Cork, — Record 
Office, Custom House, Dublin,) sets it out as 15a. 2b. The 
outline of nearly half the circle has been lately traced, and in 
some places the rampart is nearly perfect.** '^On the same 
side of the road as the church, and about 120 yards north, is 
the Tobar Muire (Mary's Well), which is cased inside with 
blocks of oak, about three feet deep, rudely squared ; and it is 
believed to have been formerly lined with lead.*' Mr. Olden, 
the Vicar of Tullylease, states that the correct interpretation 
of the common name of this well — ** Poul-a-mheir** — (pro- 
nounced Poulavere), is Pour Laveir, or the Pool of the Laver, 
Le.y a Baptistery. The only other Baptistery of this kind in 
Ireland is that at St. Doulough's, near Dublin.
