Concerning the Kov l1 Thomas Palmer, founder of tlio Parmer family of Kcnmare, 
Co. Kerry, the following are the chief particulars recorded or known* Ho wan 
(it is stated) for some time in early youth in some way connected with or attached 
to Anne Hyde, wife of James II. At a subsequent period, the date of which is not 
exactly ascertained, he was admitted to Holy Orders, and for some reasons, only 
matter of conjecture, came over to Ireland ami east in his lot with the English 
settlers in that couutry. His name appears in the Visitation Bookf of Diocese of 
Oloyne Oct. 27"> 1GG9, as Vicar of Cloufort and Tullilease and Hector of Kuock- 
touiple. In 1670, as appears from a document in Hoi Is Office Court of Chancery, 
Dublin, ho was appointed through royal favour to the Crown livings of Kilmaro 
(now Kenmare), Kilgarvan, Templenoe, Kilcroghan, and Cahirciveen (Diocese of 
Ardfert and Aghadoe). He was appointed to the commission of the peace for the 
County Kerry on 15 lh May 1G79. Ho was also Judge of the Admiralty Court of 
Minister, and of the Consistorial Court of Ardfert and Aghadoe. The most pro- 
minent event of his life was the defence of the Fort of Killowen, commonly called 
the " White House.J" by the Protestant colony of Kenmare under his command, 
united with Eichard Orpen, Esq., agent to Sir William Petty, against some 
thousands of the Irish forces of James II. Harassed by repeated raids of the 
native Irish on their cattle, farms, and homesteads, the whole Protestant population 
of the district, in fear of their lives and unable to procure any help, resolved to 
bring their families to a common place of safety, and associated§ themselves as a 
garrison of the fort with its outworks under the leadership of their Hector and 
his son-in-law Mr. Orpen. They expected an English army to land immediately 
in Munster for the rescue of the various colonies of Protestants scattered through- 
out the province, but the desired relief never came ; and abandoned to their fate 
in a remote corner of the island, after a brief but stout resistance, during a siege 

* There is some doubt as to his parentage, which is strange in the case of a man, as he was, of 
some note, and only to be explained by the almost total severance from kindred which emigration 
to Ireland in those times involved. It has been asserted that lie is identical with the person named 
in the following extract from the Admission Book of Christ's Church College, Cambridge. "A.D. 
1658, Julii 10 lh Thomas Palmer Johannis Leiccstriensis tilius, natua apud Harborough, ibidemquo 
educatus sub ferula Mag ri Berry, annos natus 14. Admissus est sizator sub Mag™ Burnet, 
spondento Mag'° Pepper." And who took his B.A. degree in 1662, and his M.A. in 1668. If so 
he comes of a very old family mentioned in a.d. 1447. Vid. Burton's History of Leicestershire, 
published 1623, pp. 54, 94, 95, 127. 

But the beUef has always obtained that he was the eldest son of a distinguished family in 
Northamptonshire, said to have died young, but did not. Ho came to Ireland owing, it is supposed, 
to some domestic difference, and chose to live and die forgotten in another land. 

Any information or useful suggestion toucliing this matter will bo gladly received. II. Herbert 
Palmer, Clk. Monkstown, Co. Dub. 

•t Vid. Dr. Brady's "Records of Cork," vol. ii. page 129. The entry in V. B. is as follows: 
" 1669, Oct. 27 lh Thomas Palmer, V. Clonfert & Tullilease, & R. Kiioektemple, per mortem 
Roborti Booth." His successor in these livings was Richard Davies, July 21 st , 1671. 

X Its ivy-clad ruins overhanging the banks of the beautiful river Koughty are still standing 
on the lands of Killowen in possession of E. Orpen Palmer Esq., the present head of the family. 

§ The following is a verbatim copy of the oath. "Association. We the undersigned do hereby 
in defence of our lives and religion associate ourselves in a body within the Fort of Killowen 
against the enemies of the Protestant Church and will from time to timo to the utmost of our 
power behave ourselves according to all such directions as shall be given us by Thomas Palmer 
and Richard Orpen for our management and safety until we are received into command of Ilis 
Highness the Prince of Orange. In testimony whereof we have taken our oaths upon the Holy 
Evangelists and put our hands and seals this last day of January 168§."

which has attracted much notice,* they capitulated ou honourable terms. These 
terms were however shamefully brokeuf by the enemy, and the brave but unhappy 
garrison, plundered, deceived, and crowded (only eight families of skilled iron- 
workers being held back by the Irish) into two small vessels, only succeeded at last 
in making their way to Bristol on March 25th, after much hardship and in sorry 
plight. Mr. Palmer, it would seem, after a short stay in England, came back to his 
old home and work at Kilmare with his little band of settlers, and spent the 
remaining tenj years of his life and ministry among them.§ It was during this 
period, if not before, (Sir B. Burke and Dr. Brady erroneously, it is thought, say 
1(352) that he obtained several grants of laud in estate, also some on lease renew- 
able for ever, embracing the present town of Kenmare and surrounding district, 
which in 1770, through legal ignorance on the part of the then possessor, becamo 
the property of the Earl of Shelburne.|| 

Eev. Thomas Palmer was married twice. First, in 1GG9 to Jane Mary, d. of 
Sir "William (or Sir Eichard) Aldworth of Duhallow or Newmarket, Co. Cork.

Richard Orpen, and entitled "An exact Relation of the Persecutions, Robberies, and Losses sus- 
tained by the Protestants of Killmare, in Ireland. With an account of their erectin- a fortress

X Rev. T. Palmer must have been dead in 1702, for his eon in that j-ear leased ground at 
Kenmare to Government for site of barracks. All tho early parish Records of Kemnaro were 
unhappily destroyed in a fire at tho Rectory in early part of present century. 

J Much interesting information is contained in another rare pamphlet, also by Richard Orpen 
in Library of Trinity College, Dublin, (marked, "Pamphlets" P. pp. 8.) entitled "The London 
Master or tho Jew detected." It gives an account of tho fraudulent and wilful shipwreck of a ship 
called the "Laurel" in the River Kenmare, — and contains a solemn statement by Rev J Thomas 
Palmer " in verbo saeerdotis "—giving his opinion on the matter— relating also a grievous calamity 
which the shelter and lodging he gave to the shipwrecked sailors with their goods brought on 
himself, viz. the burning and robbing of his own house at the " Sound," Kenmare, at midnight 
January 29"> 1693 by the "Tories." ' 

His life was saved on that occasion by the influence which his wife Julia, a native Chieftain's 
daughter, possessed with the Irish Robbers, but documents of the greatest value and interest were 
burned and lost. 

|| For further information about Mr. Palmer, vid. Burke's Landed Gentry, Article " Palmer of 
Killmare," Edition 1852. — Also Parliamentary Gazetteer of Ireland 18-16, sub voce " Killowen " 
Referenco is also made to him and M r . Orpen, and a great number of Nobility, Dignitaries and Gentry ' 
by Archbishop King, who gives at length an Act of Attainder passed against them in the Irish 
Parliament, from which the following is an extract:— "An Act for the Attainder of divers Rebels 
and for preserving the Interest of Loyal Subjects. Humbly beseech your Majesty, the Commons 
in this present Parliament assembled, That whereas a most horrible Invasion was mado by- your 
unnatural Enemy the Prince of Orange, invited thereunto and assisted by many of your Majesty's 
rebellious and traitorous subjects .... having likewise to obtain their wicked ends raised and 
levied open Rebellion and War in several places in this Kingdom, and entered into Associations 
and met in Conventions in order to call in and set up the said Prince of Orange. . . . That it 
may he enacted . . . that the persons hereafter named, being Persons who have notoriously 
joyned in the said Rebellion and Invasion, and some' of which are upon Indictments condemned 
some executed for High Treason, and the rest ran away, or abscond, or are now in the actual service 

of the Prince of Orange against your Majesty (viz.) Richard Orpin of 

Gorthinlinny Gent Tho. Palmer of Gortaglass Clerk, &e. all late of the county kehhy 

'■ every of them shall be deemed, taken & reputed, and are hereby declared and 

-• adjudged Traytors, and shall suffer such pains of Dcath.Penalties, k Forfeitures, respectively as 
in cases of High Treason are accustomed." 

Provided however, the Act proceeds, that if the attainted Persons surrendered themselves to 
stand their trial by the tenth day of August, 1689, and shall be acquitted, that then and in such 
ease they should be freed from the above pains and penalties. Vid. Archbishop King's " State of 
tie Protestants of Ireland under the late K. James's Gournmint." — 1730. Append. 1-17.

to the said Rectories. M r . Palmer is a clergyman of a very fair character in my diocese, and was 
born in that neighbourhood, or ho would hardly have the courago to think of removing into
