This Volume is the Supplement of Volume I. ; or, rather, one is the 
Complement of the other. The two Volumes contain all the Irish 
Genealogies and any other interesting matter bearing on ancient Irish 
history which we have met with in our life-long research. 

In Vol. I. are given the '< Origin and Stem of the Irish Nation," 
and, so far as we could collect them, the genealogies of the respective Eaces 
of Heber, Ithe, Ir, and Heremon, which branched from that ancient Stem : 
together with Chapters bearing on the Creation ; on the Irish Lineal 
Descent of the present Royal Family of England ; on the Pedigrees of St. 
Patrick, Apostle of Ireland, and of St. Brigid, the Patron Saint of Ireland ; 
the Eoll of the Irish Monarchs since the Milesian Conquest of Ireland, 
down to the English Invasion in the twelfth century ; the English 
Invasion of Ireland ; the Territories possessed by the ancient Irish 
families at that period ; and the Cromwellian Devastation of our unhaj)py 
country in the seventeenth century ; etc. 

For the matter contained in this Volume see the " CfoNTENTS," p. xxi, 

In collecting the materials for this Edition we found that from time to 
time many families of Belgian, Spanish, and French origin settled in 
Ireland : among them the Huguenots, who were Protestant Refugees from 
France, before and during the reign of Louis XIV. ; and the Palatines, 
who as "Protestant Lutherans" were, a.d. 1709, driven from their homes 
in the Palatinate, by the French, under that Monarch. We have inserted 
in this Volume the family names of those Refugees, to assist their 
respective representatives in Ireland in tracing their family pedigrees. 

From Hill's elaborate Work on the " Ulster Plantation" we have 
collected the names of all the Undertakers who (see pp. 501-623, infra,) 
received grants of land in the five Ulster counties then escheated to make 
room for the Plantation of Ulster, temp. King James I. But we have not 
met with the names of the dependents or retainers who accompanied those 
several Undertakers to Ulster; because their names are not mentioned in 
the Records of that Plantation. But many of the descendants of those 
retainers are probably still in Ireland. 

viii PREFACE. 

In the reign of James I. an attempt was made by clumsy translations 
to get rid of Gaelic sirnames. For example : As gahhan is the Irish for 
" a black-smith," then Mac-an-Gabhain (MacGowan or the Smith's son) 
became "Smith," "Smyth," "Smythe," and "Smeethe;" MacEoghain 
became "MacOwen," "MacKeown," "MacKeon," "McEwen," "McCune," 
"Ewing," " Owenson," " Johnson," etc. ; Murtagh O'Neill was transformed 
into " Mortimer Nelson /' MacAodha was anglicised " MacKay," " Mackay," 
"Mackey," "McKee," " Magee," " Hodson," "Hudson," " Odson," etc.; 
O^Ceallaigh was twisted into " Kalloch," and " Kellogg." From Mac-an- 
Saggart came " MacTaggart," " Taggart," " Priestman," " Priestly," etc. 

After the great body of the Irish people had been made completely 

illiterate, being unable to read or write either Gaelic or English, their 

names were curiously mutilated by the newly arrived proprietors to whom 

the confiscated estates of the Irish Landed Gentry had been conveyed, or 

by the agents of those proprietors, who had no other guide to write them 

in English than the owner's pronunciation of his name, which was entered 

accordingly on the new landlord's rent-roll ; and the same old Irish 

sirname was therefore differently spelled in different localities : thus 

accounting for the several anglicised forms of many of the old Irish 

sirnames. Hence, it was not strange that the fine old Irish name of 

Toirdhealbhach Mac Giolla Ilochoda, rolling smoothly from its owner's tongue, 

should have been recorded on the new landlord's rent-roll as " Turlogh 

MacGillicuddy," or even as " Terence Mac Elligott."* The broad Gaelic 

guttural sound has thus almost disappeared from Gaelic sirnames as 

pronounced to-day. The true Irish form of " O'Connor" is, for instance, 

O'Conchobhair, meaning " the descendant of the war-hound of help" or 

"the helping warrior;" while O'Gallchobhair is the correct Irish of 

" O'Gallagher." In Scotland, the name Callaghan is rendered " Colquhoun" 

and "Colhoun ;" while Farrar has become "Farquhar." 

Again, for Gaelic names have been substituted names of Hebrew, or 
classical origin. These changes were due to ecclesiastical or classical 
pedantry in the days when the Gaelic language was becoming unfashion- 
able. Thus, Alastair (meaning " swan-bearer") has become " Alexander ;" 
Aine has been transformed into " Hannah," "Anna," and even " Anastatia;" 
Conn has become " Constantine," and " Cornelius;" Diarmaid (or Dermot) 
has been translated into "Jeremiah," and "Jeremy;" and Donoch is 
transformed into "Donat," "Dionysius," and "Denis." Lorcan gives 

* MacElligott : See pp. 141 and 146 of Vcjl. I., for the " MacEUigott" and 
"MacGillicuddy" pedigrees, respectively. 


place to the Latin " Laurence ;" and SigUle or Sheela (meaning " fairy -like") 
appears in the forms of 'Celia," "Julia," '* Judy," and "Sibby." Tadg, 
another ancient Irish name, has become " Thaddeus," and "Teddy ;" while 
Una has become " Winney," and even the Saxon " Winifred." 

In Appendix No. II. of this Vol. we give the pedigress of the pre- 
Milesian Irish people ; and an additional interesting paper on the Round 
Towers of Ireland. In this Vol. also is given a General Index of its 
contents, as well as a General Index of Vol. I. ; in both of which Indexes 
are brought to view the more important historic names and events 
mentioned in this Edition. 

We have (see p. v., ante,) Dedicated this Volume to the Benevolent 
American Citizen, Mr. George William Childs, of Philadelphia, the eminent 
Publisher, and worthy Proprietor of the Public Ledger Newspaper, of that 
City : as a poor Tribute of our great respect for him as one of Ireland's 
Best Friends, and one who has ever been pre-eminently ready with his 
Purse, and in the columns of his influential Journal, to befriend the Irish 
race ; and of our lasting Gratitude for his spontaneous solicitude respecting 
a suitable provision for ourself in our old age, in testimony of his high and 
disinterested appreciation of our humble labours in the field of Irish 
Archaeology, of which our Irish Pedigrees and Irish Landed Gentry 
WHEN Croivtwell CAME TO IRELAND are the modest outcome. May God 
bless him ! 

But this is only one of the many instances in which, in his own quiet 
way, " without letting his left hand know what his right hand doeth," 
Mr. Childs dispenses the great wealth which he has so worthily amassed. 
Having, himself, steadily ascended from the lowest to the topmost round 
of the social ladder and attained that exalted position, it would seem that 
the purpose nearest to his heart is, by example, by counsel, by generous 
and well-timed help, to place others as near as may be beside him. To 
do good, because it is good ; to be humane, compassionate, and charitable 
now while opportunity is within his reach, is the pole-star of his being. 
And whatever advantages health, wealth, talents, accomplishments, and 
social influence afi'ord him are consecrated with rare singleness of eye to 
the welfare of his fellow-men regardless of their creed, their politics, or 
their nationality. Of him Mr. S. C. Hall well says : 

" The name of George W. Childs is not unknown in England. It is well known 
and honoured in the United States of America. He is one of the most illustrious of 
the living citizens of that great country and people ; one of the worthiest of its public 
benefactors ; foremost in every work that has for its object the good of humanity in a 
hundred varied ways ; and an example to the thousands all over the world by whom 
the Newspaper Press is conducted as an organ of universal instruction and of virtuous 
education as well as solid information." 

YOL. II. h 


When, several years ago, Mr. Hall desired to place a simple monu- 
ment over the unmarked grave of Leigh Hunt, in Kensal Green, Mr. Childs 
proposed to pay the whole cost of its erection ; but, while the generosity 
of the offer was thankfully acknowledged, a liberal subscription only was 
accepted from him for that purpose. Mr. Childs was also the largest 
subscriber to the fund for placing in the church at Bronham, England, a 
window in memory of the immortal Irish bard, Thomas Moore. And the 
stained-glass window erected by Mr. Childs in Westminster Abbey, in 
commemoration of the eminent English poets, George Herbert and William 
Cowper, is another instance of his princely benevolence. 

Appreciative notices of Mr. Childs have appeared in Lippincott's 
Biogra2)hical Dictionary^ in Johnson's JSnajclopedia, in the Biographie des 
Contemporains, in Men of the Times, in various brochures in different lan- 
guages, and in Newspapers without number. 

In the Printefs Circular of June 1879, we read : 

"Many men have made magnificent bequests, but Mr. Childs is a Princely Giver. 
His life has been a stream of benefactions, flowing hither, thither, everywhere. He 
does good now, while it is day, for he knows that the night cometh when no man can 
work. His benevolence flows in the channel of his own selection. He trusts nothing 
to jjost mortem contingencies. He knows that the good he does becomes his own by 
the loftiest of titles, for it will act and re-act onward for ever." 

To quote the language of the late (American) Chief Justice Ellis 

" Mr. Childs has planted himself in the human heart, and there he will have his 
habitation while man shall dwell upon earth. He has built his monument upon the 
broad basis of universal benevolence ; its superstructure is composed of good and noble 
deeds ; its spire is the love of God, and points to Heaven." 

Voltaire, we are told, declined to edit an edition of the works of 
Kacine, for the reason that his annotations of those works would consist 
simply of elaborate commendation. Our readers may, perhaps, think that 
for a similar reason the portraiture which we have here drawn of the Good 
Mr. Childs should have been withheld. To those, however, who do not 
know him the language we employ may be regarded as undiscerning 
eulogy ; but to those who know him it is but faint praise. 

For information bearing on some of the genealogies contained in this 
Volume we are indebted to the courtesy of Mr. C. J. Hubbard, United 
States, America; William J. Simpson, Esq., Belfast; Thomas O'Gorman^ 
Esq., Sandymount, Dublin ; and to the eminent Authorities mentioned in 
our " REFERENCES," p. XX. And to Sir Charles Cameron, Dublin, Author 
of History of the Irish Royal College of Surgeons ; Rev. A. W. C. Hallen,

of Louis XIV. ; Samuel Smiles, Esq., London, Author of The Huguenots :

George Hill, Belfast, Author of The Plantation of Ulster, we have to 
express our acknowledgments for the permission which each of these 
worthy Authors has kindly given us to utilize in any way we thought 
proper any information contained in their respective valuable Works. 

As our Irish Pedigrees and Irish Landed Gentry when Crom- 
well CAME TO Ireland subserve no sect or party, we hopefully confide 
them to the Irish and Anglo-Irish race of every class and creed all over 

the world.

BARRY. (No. 3). 

Of Sandville, County Limerick. 

In p. 278, Vol. I., first column, beginning with line 13 from top, the

Arms : Gu. an escutcheon and orle of martlets ar. 

In the Library of Thirlestain House, Cheltenham, fEngland, there is a 
manuscript of Sir William Betham's, No. 13,293 in Catalogue, and entitled, 
English Families in Ireland, from which the following is an extract : — ' 

" The family of Chittog are famoi;s in the barony of Lurg, in this county (Fer- 
managh), for being stout, forward, liberal people, particularly the son John of Mr. 
Thomas, the eldest of Mr, Henry Chittog, a gentleman freeholder of good credit and 
respect. His freehold lies near Pettigo, in the lower end of the county, bordering on 
Lough Erne, a pretty, handsome seat. His grandfather, Mr, Thomas Chittog, came 
from England, in the reign of King James I. His wife was sister to the king in (the 
Isle of) Mann, and grandmother to Mr. John Chittog. The said Mr. Henry* Chittog is 
married in the family of Johnstone, daughter of Mr. Johnstone, who was a gentleman 
of credit and good relations in this county, and by this gentlewoman he has many 
children. Now the proper name of this family is Chideock. But from the time theyj 
came to Ireland they were called by every possible misnomer ; and about the beginning 
of the last century a person named CMttock, in no way related to or connected witM 
the Chideocks, settled in Fermanagh, after which the country people began to call the] 
Chideocka " Chittick,'''' and they fell into the misnomer," ' 

Henry Blennerhasset's daughter Deborah had, by her second husband 
Captain James Colquhoun, two daughters: Lillias, the elder,t married 
Alexander Squire of Londonderry, and had by him two sons and one 
daughter; the elder son James alone survived infancy. This James i 
Squire married Catherine Chittage, a/ks Chideock, of Muckross, county 
Fermanagh, and by her had two sons, William and Leslie : Leslie died a 
minor and unmarried ; WilHam married Anne, daughter of Captain James 
Austin, who, in her marriage settlement, is designated of Sharon Eectory, 
county Donegal, where she resided with her uncle and guardian John 
Waller, Senior Fellow of Trinity College, Dublin, and Rector of Ray- 
mockey. William Squire died in June, 1806, and left four children two 
of whom died in infency ; one son, William, and one daughter Anne 
survived : William married Harriet Chideock, and left by her one son' 
Archer Squire (living in 1888); and Anne married James Chideock (or 
Chittick), by whom she had three sons (now resident in New York United 
States, America), and two daughters. The three sons ; L Squire Leslie 

* Henry: It may be worthy of remark that, in keeping with the popular pronun- 
ciation of ms sirname m his locality, this Henry Chittog, in his will, signs his name 
''Henry Chittick. The Jhittogs, or Chideocks, bought their freehold from Thomas 
or Sir Leonard, Blennerhasset, who was an undertaker under the "Plantation of 
U ISucr. 

t^tor: There are at present no representatives of Penuel, the younger daughter 
of Captain James Colquhoun. She married James Irvine, Physician to the ''Pre 
tender," at Rome, and left by him one son, James Irvine, who died at Manorcunning! 
ham, AD, 1/56, and bequeathed the estate to his cousin, James Squire, the eldest son 
of Alexander Squire, of Londonderry, above mentioned. 


Hasset. II. William Gervaise, who married Eliza-Jane, daughter of 
Alexander Lindsay, J.P., of Lisnacrieve House, county Tyrone (Aldernian 
of Londonderry, where he served three times as Mayor), and has surviving 
issue — I. William-Gervaise, a Barrister; 2. James; 3. Alice-Gertrude. 
III. James Johnstone Fovster. The two daughters of James Chideock 
were : I. Erminda, wife of Alexander Eentoul,* M.D., D.D., of Errily 
House, Manorcunningham, county Donegal ; 2. Harriet, a spinster. The 
issue (surviving) of Erminda Chideock (or Chittick) and her husband 
Alexander Rentoul are: 1. James Alexander, LL.D., Woolwich, and 
Barrister-at-Law, 1 Pump Court, Temple, London; 2. Erminda; 3. 
Robert John : 4. Harriet ; 5. Lizzy ; 6- Margaret- Augusta ; 7. Anne ; 

William Gervaise, who died 9th October, 1887. 

The " Chideock " family is now represented by the Messrs. Chittick, 
Chideock, of New York, and by the aforesaid James Alexander Rentoul, 
LL.D., Woolwich.

Page 130, infra, first column, line five from bottom, read " Gabriel," 
instead of Gohnil, Conyngham. 

* Eentoul : The family of ' ' Rentoul " is of Huguenot origin. At the Revocation of 
the Edict of Nantes, a gentleman named Eintoul settled in Scotland. He had three 
sons, the eldest of whom settled in Perthshire, where he obtaioed some land. In 
after generations the eldest son retained the homestead, while the younger sons 
became professional men. Previous to a.d. 1790 James Rintoul, then a Licentiate of 
the Church of Scotland, was sent to administer to the Presbyterian Congregation of 
Kay. By his Church's orders he had to remain in Ireland for two years ; during 
which time he married Anne, daughter of the Rev. Robert Reed, late minister of Kay, 
and he decided to remain in Ireland. By Anne Reed he had a family ; their eldest 
son, Alexander, M.D., D.D., of Errily House, Manorcunningham, became the husband 
of Erminda, daughter of James Chideock (or Chittick), as above mentioned. Or, 
more fully criven, the genealogy of the Rev. Alexander Rentoul, of Errily House, 
Manorcunningham, is as follows : Thomas Blennerhasset married Elizabeth, daughter 
of Sir "William Sandys, of Dublin. Their eldest son, Sir Leonard Blennerhasset, 
married Deborah, daughter of Sir Henry Mervyn, of Petersfield (M.P. for Wotton 
Basset in 1614, Admiral of the "Narrow Seas " in 1646), by his wife Christian Audiey, 
fourth daughter of the first Earl of Castlehaven and his wife Lucy Mervyn. {The 
20th Baron Audiey died 18th April, 1872, leaving no male issue and the title is now 
in abeyance.) Sir Leonard Blennerhasset was succeeded by his son Henry, who in 
1664 was elected M.P. for Fermanagh, and who married Phoebe, daughter of Sir 
George Hume, of Castle Hume. By her he had only two daughters— 1. Deborah ; 2. 
Mary. Deborah was twice married : first, to Christopher, eldest son of Sir George 
Irvine by whom she had no issue ; her second husband was Captain James Colqiihoun, 
the second son of Sir James Colquhoun (who was the 19th of Colquhoun, and 21st of 
Luss) by his wife Penuel, granddaughter of Sir James Cunningham, the 18th of Glen- 
earnock by his wife Lady Catherine, daughter of James, 7th Earl of Glencairne. 
James Colquhoun died in Flanders in 1699, leaving no male issue ; his only two 
daughters were Lillias and Penuel, as above mentioned. 


EGAN. (No. 3.) 

Of Austria-Hungary, and Germany. 

Page 540, infra, second column, line 34 from top, the sentence com- 
mencing : " This William has two sons," should read : " This William has 
two sons named William and Alfred {not " William and Edward," as there 
mentioned), both of minor age in 1888. 


See pp. 548 — 551, infra. 

In " Glenny " (No. 2) pedigree, second column, the three last lines 
" III. John, who married and had : 1 . John, 2. George, 3. Elizabeth," 
should not be there, as III. John, the father of these three children, 
actually was "IV. John," the fourth son of Isaac, who is No. 3 on the 
" Glenny " (No. 1) pedigree, and had those children, as well as Isaac there 

Also in " Glenny " (No. 1) pedigree, Isaac No. 4 should be given as 
the third {not the eldest) son of Isaac No. 3. 

And No. 4 George, in the " Glenny " (No. 3) pedigree, should be 
given as the eldest {not the third) son of Isaac, who is No. 3 on the 
"Glenny" (No. 1) pedigree. 


Of Sea Park, Carrickfergus. 

In p. 235, ivfra, first column, there is a generation omitted between Nos. 
13 and 14, which makes Thomas MacGregor Greer to be No. 29 instead 
of No. 28 on that family pedigree. 
No. 13. was succeeded by his son : 

14. Gilbert Grierson, Laird of Lag, who mar. Isabel, Lady Rocail, 
daughter of David de Kirkpatrick of Rocail (now *' Rock Hall "), Dum- 
friefshire. By this matrimonial alliance the Rock Hall estate came into 
possession of the Griersons, and is at the present time the Residence of 
ISir Alexander Grierson, 9th Bart., the head of that family, after four 
hundred years' possession in the same family. Gilbert (No. 14) was suc- 
ceeded by his son ; 

15. Vedast Grierson, of Lag, who in 1457 succeeded to the family 
estates on the death of his elder brother Gilbert. Vedast mar. Isabel, 
dau. of William de Dalrymple of Stair (ancestor of the Earls of Stair), by 
his wife Agnes Kennedy ; and was succeeded by his son : 

16. Roger Grierson, of Lag, who was fatally wounded at Sauchie- 
burn in 1488, etc. (As mentioned in the pedigree, at No. 15.) 


McCLOUD. (No. 2.) 

Of Skye, Ireland, and America. 

In p. 305, infra, second column, line 18 from top, read: '* This Richard 
was educated in the Public and Catholic Parochial Shools at Norwich," 

In p. 307, first column, line 10 from top, read : "Mr. John Skelly," 
instead of " Mr. S. Kelly ; " and in column two, line 2 from top, same 
page, read : " AVilliam Shahan," instead of " William Strahan." 


Of Pennsylvania. 

Gayen, John, and James Miller settled in Pennsylvania, U.S.A., early 
in tlie last century: Gayen Miller was there in 1702; John Miller, in 
1709 ; and James Miller, iu 1729. They settled near eiich other, and are 
supposed to have been brothers or relations, and to have gone there from 
the county of Armagh or Tyrone, Ireland. 

The wife of Gayen Miller was Margaret, daughter of Dr. Patrick 
Henderson, said to be of Scotland ; their children (who were probably 
born in Ireland) were : 1. James, born in 169G ; 2. William, born in 1698. 

The wife of John Miller was Mary : their son James was born in 1G93, 
near Claremont, county Armagh, and their son William was born in 1698, 
in the county Tyrone. Other children were probably born to them iu 

James Miller married in Ireland Catherine, daughter of Thomas 
Lightfoot, and in 1729 emigrated to Pennsylvania. 


Of Coleraine, and America. 

Doctor Thomas Pollock, M.D., living at Coleraine, Ireland, married a 
Miss Cochran, and had eleven children, all of whom were born in Cole- 
raine : 

I. John Pollock, born 1724, died 
1794, at Carlisle, Pa., U.S.A. ; mar. 
first Catherine Campbell ; secondly

WARREN. (No. 2). 
Of the County Down. 

In p. 448, infra, in the second paragraph of this family paper, read : — 
" Matthew Warren of this branch (born about 1675) had three sons: 1. 
Thomas ; 2, John ; and 3. William, whose children died in infancy." 

In the third paragraph, fourth line, read : — " Has left one surviving 
son, Mr. Thomas Warren, of Manitoba," &c. 


Bearing on the last paragraph, p. 451, infra, Dr. Bowles Daly, in Myra's 
Journal for October, 1888, in an interesting article on Irish Industries, 
points out that while the civilized world is clothed out of four materials — 
silk, cotton, flax, and wool — Ireland produces in abundance two of these 
commodities (flax and wool), and could make ten times as much if required. 
Ireland, he says, was thoroughly skilled in wool-work long before the 
[Flemish refugees had begun to teach the art to English workers ; and Irish 
woollen stuff" had an ancient history, and was valued and known centuries 
before the first cloth manufacture was introduced into Euirland. " The 
origin of the Irish woollen fabric is lost in the mist of ages. In the thir- 
teenth and fourteenth centuries the Popes of Rome used to send their 
agents to several of the Irish towns to purchase woollen fabric for the 
onstruction of those gorgeous mantles used on State occasions ; the 
ngenit)us designs and ornamentation were invariably the work of Irish 
irtists. In fact, the old Irish frieze was eagerly bought up in Spain and 
'taly, and so prized, that garments made of it were entered as heirlooms in 
the wills of the Florentine citizens."

" The savage loves his native shore. 

Though rude the soil and chill the air ; 
Then well may Erin's sons adore ' 

An Isle which nature formed so fair !" 

This Volume* contains, so far as we have collected them, the names of 
those Irish families who claim to be of Danish, Norman, English, Welsh, 
Scottish, Huguenot, and Palatine extraction, and who from time to time 
settled in Ireland since the English invasion. While, however, some of 
those names are no doubt of foreign origin, it will be seen that others of 
them are of Irish descent, which have heretofore been considered as of 
foreign extraction. No doubt the love of country for which the Celts, in 
whatever clime, have ever been proverbial, may have led some of those 
families to return to Ireland, as opportunities offered ; for, if Scotland's 
friendly Bardf could admire the Emerald Isle, as by him expressed in the 
stanza which heads this page, it is not difficult to understand why, in weal 
or in woe, the Irish Celt, in exile, | so intensely loves his native country, or 
the loved land of his fathers, that he ever feels a home sickness to visit his 

"First flower of the earth and first gem of the sea." 

As the genealogies herein contained are given in alphabetical order, and 
that therefore Anglo-Norman, Anglo-Irish, and Scottish-Irish families are 
necessarily intermixed, we give them under the heading ** Irish Pedi- 
grees, Anglo-Irish and other Genealogies ;" as distinguished from the 
genealogies recorded in Vol. I., which relates to families of the Milesian 
Irish Race. 

* Volume : For the Dedication of this Edition, see Vol. I. 
t Bard : The above stanza is also ascribed to Robert Orr. 
X Exile : How feeling is the song of the Irish Exile : 

Oh, Erin, Mavourneen ! how sad is the parting, 
Dear home of our childhood, for ever from thee ! 

How bitter and burning the tears that are starting, 
As we sigh a farewell to thee, Erin Machree ! 

My country ! my country ! tho' far from that loved earth, 
Where first I drew breath, from these lips it should go, 

My last sigh will be thine, darling land of my birth, 

My last prayer for thee, Erin, in welfare or woe. 



The following few Poems, by George Nugent Reynolds, will give the 
reader an idea of the Irish exile's intense love of his native country : 


Oh, laud of my forefathers, sea-gircTed Erin ! 

My heart throbs aloud as thy hills disappear. 
Fatuity ! oh, thou wast dreadful aud daring 

To usher me thus on a pathless career. 
But, oh, 'tis too late now my loss to recover, — • 
The laud-breezes swelling, the spray dashing over, — 
Aud green-bosom'd Eric, I scarcely discover ; 

Like blue wreathy vapours her mountains appear. 

An exile, I fly to the banks of Ohio, 

Where gloomy dark deserts bewilder the way ; 

Where no tuneful Orpheus or soft-voiced Thalia 
Enlivens the heart with a soul-telling lay ; 

Where fell snakes are hissing and dire monsters screaming, 

Where death-pregnant lightnings are dreadfully gleaming, 

And direful contagion destruction proclaiming, 
Infest every vale and embitter eacli day. 

And oh ! how contrasted with dear native Erin, 
Whose rich herbage landscapes I tearfully leave, 

Whose heath-crested hills are salubrious and cheering, 
Whose daughters are peerless, whose sons true and brave. 

The dismal tornado ne'er prostrates her towers, 

No grim-fronted monster her children devours, 

Nor breezes malignant shed death through her bowers, 
All fanned by the soft- whistling gales of the wave. 

Ah, man ! thou art fretful, contentless, and wavering ; 

Thy blessings are countless ; but thou mean and vile ; 
The hand of Jehovah extending and favouring. 

Peculiarly visits the Emeral Isle. 
Yet outcast of Nature, how blind to true pleasure, 
Thou bart'rest enjoyment for base sordid treasure, 
And home thou forsakest, though dear beyond measure, 

Where friendship and freedom in harmony smile. 


Farewell, and for ever, my lov'd Isle of sorrow. 
Thy green vales and mountains delight me no more ; 

My bark's on the wave, and the noon of to-morrow 
Will see the poor exile, far, far from thy shore. 

Again, my lov'd home, I may never behold thee ; 

Thy hope was a meteor — thy glory a dream ; 
Accurst be the dastards, the slaves that have sold thee, 

And doomed thee, lost Erin, to bondage and ahame. 

The senseless, the cold, from remembrance may wean them. 
Though the world they unlov'd, and unloving may roam ; 

But the heart of the patriot — though seas roll between them — 
Forgets not the smiles of his once happy home. 




Time may roll o'er me its circles iincheering, 
Columbia's proud forests around me shall wave ; 

But the exile shall never forget thee, lov'd Erin, 
Till unmourn'd he sleeps in a far foreign grave. 


This song, which was claimed by Mr. T. Campbell, was composed some 
time prior to November, 1799, on the subject of the exile of John 
Cormick, who was obliged to leave Ireland on account of the part he had 
taken in the Irish Insurrection of 1798. Mr. Reynolds's sister (Mrs. 
Mary Anne MacNamara), of Lough Scur, county of Leitrim, wrote upwards 
of one hundred copies of it for friends, who again transcribed it for others, 
so that a travelling harpernamed Richard M'CIoskey, learned it in Belfast 
about the time of Christmas, 1799. Thus it was well known in parts of 
Ireland shortly after Novemljer, 1799. 

Early in 1801, some one sent a copy of this song to the Morning 
Chronicle, and Mr. Perry, its editor, first printed it, anonymously, in his 
impression of the 28th January, 1801. Mr. Thomas Campbell, who was 
then at Altona, being a subscriber to the Chronicle, as well as a contributor 
to its columns, having received that issue, and seeing in it this song, which 
was so applicable to the case of a Mr. Anthony M'Cann of Dundalk, co. 
Louth, then a political exile in Altona, copied it out, suppressed the name 
of the paper, and, in a moment of weakness and vanity, passed it off on 
M'Cann as his (Campbell's) own production. M'Cann, of course, believed 
him, felt highly flattered at the compliment, and grateful for what he must 
have thought Campbell's feeling and sympathy for him, the deluded refugee 
sent a copy of it to his friends in Dundalk, in March, 1801. He stated 
it was the composition of a Mr. Campbell, an " English" gentleman, of 
great poetic talent, who was staying at the same hotel with himself. Mr. 
M'Cann also added that himself and Mr. Campbell were intimate friends, 
and that he (]M'Cann) suggested " Erin go Bragh" as the air best adapted 
for it. This alone would show that Campbell was not the author ; and, 
apart from all historical evidence, the identity of many passages in the 
poems " Green were the Fields" (which we give in Vol.1.) and "The 
Exile of Erin," together with the spirit which breathes in each, go to show 
that one and the same mind was the author of both. Mrs. Mary Anne 
MacNamara, Mr, Richard J, Reynolds, and Miss Bridget J, Reynolds, in 
1830, proved satisfactorily that Mr. G-eorge Nugent Reynolds was the 
undoubted author of — 

The Exile of Urmn.t 

There came to the beach a poor exile of Erinn, 

The dew on bis raiment was heavy and chill ; 
For his country he sighed, when at twilight repairing 

To wander alone by the wind-beaten hill. 
But the day-star attracted his eye's sad devotion, 
For it rose o'er his own native isle of the ocean, 
Where once in the fire of his youthful emotion 
He sang the bold anthem of Erin go Bragh. 


Oh, sad is ray fate, aaid the heart-broken stranger, 

The wild deer and wolf to a covert can flee ; 
But I have no refuge from famine and danger, 

A home and a country remain not to me. 
Ah ! never again in the green sunny bowers. 
Where my forefathers lived, shall I spend the sweet hours. 
Or cover my harp with the wild woven flowers, 
And strike to the numbers of Erin go Bragh. 

Erin, my country, though sad and fox'saken, 

In dreams I revisit thy sea-beaten shore, 
But alas ! in a far foreign land I awaken. 

And sigh for the friends that can meet me no more. 
Ah ! cruel fate, wilt thou never replace me 
In a mansion of peace where no perils can chase me ? 
Ah I never again shall my brothers embrace me — 
They died to defend me, or live to deplore. 

Where is my cabin-door fast by the wild wood ? 

Sister and sire, did you weep for its fall ? 
Where is the mother that looked on my childhood ? 

And where is the bosom friend dearer than all? 
Oh, my sad heart, long abandoned by pleasure, 
Why did it doat on a fast-fading treasure ? 
Tears like the raiu-drop may fall without measure, 
But rapture and beauty they cannot recall 1 

Yet, all its sad recollections suppressing, 

One dying Avish my lone bosom can draw — 
Erin, an exile bequeaths thee his blessing, 

Land of my forefathers, Erin go Bragh. 
Buried and cold, when my heart stills its motion, 
Green be thy fields, sweetest isle of the ocean, 
And thy harp-striking bards sing aloud with devotion, 
Erin Mavourneen, Erin go Bragh !

Tradition says that the first of this family in this country came to Ireland 
with Henry II., from Surrey, in England, and settled at Downpatrick ; but 
we are not aware that any persons of this name are now living in or near 
that town. Three branches of the family are, however, located in Munster : 
one branch at Ballynoe, county Carlow ; another, at Wilton Castle, county 
Wexford; and another, at Dunmore, county Waterford. ' 

The Waterford branch of the family is descended from the Very Kev '. 
Alexander Alcock, Dean of Lismore, who, when nineteen years of agej 
entered Trinity College, Dublin, as a pensioner, on the 2nd July, 1684 ; 
and whose father was, we learn from the Entrance Book of Trinity College :; 

•' Filius Joanis Alcock de Downpatrick in com. Duensi." 

The Dean of Lismore* (d. 1747), sister to Aland John Mason, M.P., 
married Miss Mason, daughter of countyWaterford, who in 1739 mar.. 
Sir John Mason, of Waterford (and the Countess of Grandison.— See' 

* Lismore • The mother of the Very Eev. Alexnnder Alcock was, tradition says, th« 
widow of the Eev. Mr. Poe. The eldest brother of this Alexander was Will am Alcock, 
who was the head of the Wilton Branch, county Wexford. He had a son (also named 
WUliam) who married (the sister-in-law of his uncle, the Dean) Miss Mason, and had 
a son. Colonel Wm. Alcock, who married the daughtpr of the then Lord Loftus (the 
ancestor of the present Marquis of Ely) j and Colonel Wm. Alcock's sister married 
Snow, Esq., Waterford. , , ^ r . i ^i. 

The Colonel's son Henry married, first, Mi?s Chinerex, daughter of the then 
Bishop of Waterford. She died young ; and he then married Miss Usher, daughter 

of Usher, M.P., co. Waterford. This Henry had several children, among them 

William Congrive Alcock, M.P., co. Wexford, who was a man of historic notoriety^ 
He voted against the " Union ;" and fought the most celebrated electioneering duel 
of the time, when he shot Colclough of Tintern. He never married, and the property, 
etc. of Wilton Castle fell into the hands of his brother and successor. This brother, 
who was named "Harry," married Miss Savage, of the co. Wexford ; they were tht 


Lodge's Peerage)^ and had three 
sons, the youngest of whom was : 

2. The Venerable Alexander 
Alcock, Archdeacon of Waterford, 
who i?iar. Miss Jocel}'n (sister to the 
then Lord Chancellor of Ireland, 
who subsequently became " Baron 
Newport," and finally the " Earl of 
Roden"*), and had a large family, 
the youngest son of whom having 

3. Rev. Mason Alcock, who mar. 

Miss Jones, dau. of Edward Jones, 
of Drombeg, county Cork, and had 

4. Alexander M. Alcock, of 
Waterford : eldest son of Rev. 
Mason Alcock ; mar. Miss Morris, 
of Harbour View, county Waterford, 
and had : 

5. Edward H. Alcock, of Grove 
House, Dunmore East, Waterford ; 
living in 1887.

father and mother of the present Lieut. -Col. Harry Alcock, of Wilton Castle, living 
in 1887. 

There is no relationship, that we can find, between the above-named Alcocks and 
those of Kilkenny, who can claim descent from the Rev. Nathaniel Alcock, who, A.D, 
1628, was Rector of Ferns, county Wexford ; and who is worthily represented by 
Surgeon-Major Nathaniel Alcock, now (1887) livin:? at Ballybrack, county Dublin. It 
is asserted that this branch of the family originally came from Lancashire ; while the 
Carlow, Wexford, and Waterford branches originally came from Surrey. In confir- 
mation of this tradition it may be worth while to here insert the following anecdote ; 
Some thirty years ago, Thomas Alcock was M.P. for Surrey, and hajipening one day 
to be in conversation with his namesake, the M.P. for Waterford, the English gentle- 
man asked the other if he had ever met any of his name in Ireland. His answer was 
"Yes;" that there were some of them in Waterford. Indeed! said the other; that 
confirms a tradition in our family, that a branch of us went over to Ireland with Henry 
II., and then settled somewhere m Ulster ; further adding : "There is also a curious 
tradition in our family that we are descended, by a morganatic marriage, from Charle , 
magne." It is strange, that this tradition has always existed in the Waterford branch 
of the family, as well. We find that the oldest death register in the Cathedral of 
Waterford was that of "Charles Alcock, Merchant," who died circa A.D. 1650. 

There are other families of Alcock in Ireland, some of whom came over with Sir 
Walter Rileigh. A Quaker family of the name is, or;lately was, located in Cork, but 
we are at present unable to trace their descent. !>

This family-name appears to bean anglicised form of the Irish O'Aillemeair 
("aille:" Irish, the superlative of " alain," fair, handsome; '* mear," 
sprightly, jolly, merry), meaning the descendants of Aillemear, "the very 
handsome and sprightly man." The earliest notice of the name that we 
met with in our research is in the MS. Vol. F. 1. 21, in the Library of 
Trin. Coll. Dubh'n, in which the name Ailmer is mentioned as being settled 
in the county KiMare, immediately after the English invasion. In the 
tenth of Henry VL, ad. 1421, we find Richard Aylmer, Esq., of Lyons, 
county Kildare,* mentioned as one of the Keepers of the Peace for that 
county, as well as for the adjoining county of Dul)lin. 

The Baronetcy of Ireland was conferred, 25ih January, 1621, ten 
years after the institution of the Order, by King James I., upon :

Nicholas Barnewall, Lord Kingsland, was an oflficerin Lord Limerick's 
Dragoons. His family was long settled at Turvey, in the county Dublin. 
He was the third bearer of the " Kingsland" title, which was bestowed 
upon his grandfather by Charles I. for eminent loyally. He married 
Mary, youngest daughter of George Count Hamilton, and soon after 
entered King James's Irish Army, as Captain of a troop in Lord Limerick's 
Dragoons, with which regiment he followed the fortunes of his legitimate 
sovereign to the last. He fought at the Boyne, at Aughrim, and at 
Limerick, for which he was outlawed by the Williamites ; but, being 
included in that celebrated Treaty, his outlawry was reversed and he was 
restored to his honours. He was summoned to King William's first 
Parliament ; but, though takiug the oath of allegiance to that Monarch, 
he refused to take other tests which were against his conscience, as a 
Roman Catholic, and was accordingly prevented from taking his seat. 
He died on the Mth June, 1725, leaving issue two soris and four daughters. 
His sons were: 1. Henry Benedict, who succeeded to his title as fourth 
lord; and 2. George, born 24th November, 1711. 

Henry Benedict, born 1st Feb., 1708, married Honoria, daughter of 
Peter Daly, of Quansbury, county Galway ; no issue, at least up to 1768. 

The fifth Viscount's name we have not learned ; but the sixth Viscount 

* Barneioall : This name is claimed by some to have been of Anglo-Norman 
origin ; but, according to No. 112 on the " O'Beirne" pedigree, p. 607, Vol. I. of this 
Edition, " Barnewall" is of Irish extraction. 



was Matthew, who died in Dec, 1833, s.p., leaving a widow, in reference 
to whom the following paragraph appeared in the London Times of 2Gth 
March, 1878: 


" The Earl of Beaconsfield has recommended a grant from the Royal Bounty Fund 
of £100 to the Universal Beneficent Society, 15 iSoho-square, to be applied for the 
benefit of Viscountess Kingsland, one of the society's pensioners." The public will 
naturally desire to know something concerning — first, the Viscountess Kingsland, 
and next as to the society that has obtained for her such salutary relief. We have 
made inquiries on the subject, and communicate the following particulars : — Vis- 
countess Kingsland was married to the late viscount in 1819. After his death the 
interest on the sum of £1,200 was her only means of support. One of the two trustees 
appointed having died, the other trustee, her own brother, absconded with the principal 
and left her completely destitute and penniless. The authorities of the parish in which 
she resided then allowed her out-door relief at the rate of 2s, 6d. per week, and with 
her needle she managed to eke out an existence, earning weekly on an average from 
2s. to 3s. She lived in a small room in Lambeth in extreme poverty, and endured for 
a long time in silence her hard lot. At last in her distress she applied to a subscriber 
to the society, who brought the case to the notice of the council. Satisfactory evidence 
and certificates having been obtained verifying the truth of her statement and con- 
firming her sad tale of woe, she was placed on the list of the society's pensioners. 
Matthew Barnewall, sixth Viscount Barnewall of Kingsland, in the peerage of Ireland, 
died in December, 1833, when his title became extinct, he having no male issue or 
heir. He married, 2nd January, 1819, Julia, daughter of Mr. John Willis (physician), 
who is the present Viscountess. Lady Kingsland has no relatives living who are in a 
position to assist her, her sister being herself a pensioner on Government, and receiving 
£40 a year. The sister lives with her two daughters, who are engaged as machinists 
(sewing machines). The third daughter of that sister lives with Lady Kingsland, and 
earns a small weekly pittance by braiding mantles and other needlework. The house 
in which they reside has been condemned, and will shortly be pulled down. They 
occupy one small back room about 13 feet square, in which there is scarcely any furni- 
ture. Lady Kingsland's bedstead is only an apology for this necessary piece of furni- 
ture ; and her niece has none at all, but sleeps on the boards at night, or rather in the 
morning, when she has finished her daily toil. Lady Kingsland has continued her 
needlework, but this she is obliged to confine to shirt-making. She is remunerated 
at the rate of 2d. for each shirt made ! It has been decided, with Lord Beaconfield's i 
approval, to expend the £100 grant in purchasing an annuity of about £10 or £12 a 
year for Lady Kingsland, after laying out a small sum in making a new apartment to 
be procured for her ladyship a little more comfortable than that which she occupies at 
present." — Social Notes, a.d. 1878.

According to A. Crossly's Peerage, this family is a long time in Ireland. 
In 1445 Philip Belle w, Esq., was Bailiff of the City of Dublin. From 
him descended James Bellew, who in 1598 was Mayor of Dublin; and 
from him descended Sir John Bellew, Bart., P.O. to King James II., and 
Colonel in his Army ; he was the first Peer in the Bellew family. Baron 
Bellew married a daughter of Lord Athenry, and had two sons : 1. 
Matthew, who died s.p. ; and 2. Richard, who succeeded his father, and 
had a son John, who was a minor in 1724. This Captain the Honble. 
Richard Bellew commenced his military service as Lieutenant in Dongan's 
Horse, and served through the war of the Revolution. After the Battle 
of Aughrim, he was appointed to the command of Tyrconnell's Horse 
vacant by the death in that fight of his relative Colonel Walter Nugent. 
On the termination of the war in Ireland, in 1691, Col. Bellew brought 
his regiment to France, where it was called "The King of England's 
Dismounted Dragoons." During his service in France, being as he con- 
sidered, unjustly deprived of his command,* Col. Bellew returned to Ire- 
land, where, on the death of his elder brother in 1694, he became third 
Lord Bellew. Next year he married the widow of the second Earl of 

a Scot. 

Command : Bellew was deprived of his command in favour of Thos. Maxwell, 


Newburgh, with whom he got a fortune of £17,000 ; conformed to the 
Protestant religion ; took his seat in the House of Peers ; and died in 
1714, leaving a son John, who became the fourth Lord Bellew, and who 
died in 1770 without male issue, when the title in this immediate line 
became extinct.

This peerage was created in 1686, and became extinct in 1770, Captain 
the Honble. Walter Bellew (d. 1694), who, like his father, died of a wound 
he had received at the Battle of Aughrim, was the second son of John 
Lord Bellew of Duleek, who was a Colonel of Tyrconnell's Horse. He 
served through the war to the Capitulation of Limerick, and was wounded 
at Aughrim. On the death of his father in 1692, Walter succeeded as 
second Lord Bellew of Duleek, He was married to Lady Frances Went- 
worth (sister of Lord Strafford, Viceroy of Ireland, temp. King Charles L, 
but who was executed in the reign of that Monarch), and by her had two 
daughters, but no male issue. The line was continued by his brother the 
Honble. Richard Bellew, of Dongan's Horse.

BEL. [part V, 


Of Castle BeUingham, County Louth. 

Arms : Argent, three bugle horns sa. stringed and garnished or. Crest : A buck's 
head couped or. Motto : Amicus amico. 

This family derives its name from the town of BeUingham^ county North- 
umberland, England, where it appears to have been seated immediately 
after the Conquest ; for, we read of perpetual feuds in the reigns of 
William the Conqueror and William Rufus, between Alan de BeUingham 
and the Charltons of Hasleyside ; the descendants of the latter still own a 
mansion near the town, while the Bellinghams, once so j)owerful, have 
altogether disappeared from the county, though certain '* quit rents" were 
l^aid to a representative of that family for land in North Tynedale, down 
to as late a period as 1774. 

Among the many distinguished members of this family may be 
mentioned William BeUingham of Wolneston, whose daughter, Maud, 
married circa 1316 William Bellasis of Bellasis. 

Henry BeUingham of BeUingham (whose daughter married Sir James 
Leyborne of Cunswick) was made a Knight Banneret by King Henry VL^ 
after the battle of Wakefield ; his son, Sir Eoger, was made a Knight 
Banneret after the battle of Stoke, in 1487, and left an only son Sir Robert 
(also knighted on the field), who died without issue. 

Sir Edward BeUingham, called by Leland in his History of Ireland, " a 
brave and experienced commander," was of the Privy Council of King 
Edward VI., who sent him over to be Lord Deputy of Ireland in 1548-9. 
The most important branch of the family settled at Levens, county West- 
moreland, which was purchased by Richard de BeUingham, whose daughter 
Mary married Sir John de Harrington, and died in 1348. His grandson, 
Sir Robert, who was knighted by Henry V. in 1413, married Elizabeth, 
daughter of Sir Thomas Tunstall of Thurland, and by her had eight sons, 
who founded branches of the family in different parts of the country. 
From Richard, his second son, descended the Bellinghams of Lincolnshire, 
and of Colonial Massachusetts. From Thomas, the fourth son, the 
Bellinghams of Sussex and Surrey are descended ; and from Alan, the 
eighth son, the Bellinghams of Helsington and Levins. This Alan was 
the famous Treasurer of Berwick, and Deputy Warden of the Marches ; 
who received from Henry VIII. a grant of the barony of Kendal called 
the " Lumley Fee." Of him was made the rhyme still to be seen on one 
of the windows of Levins Hall : ^^ Amicus Amico Alanus, Bellinger Belligero 

From his grandson, Alan BeUingham of Helsington and Levins, the 
descent is as follows : 

I. James, of whom presently. 

IL Grace (b. 1558 ; d. 1594), m. 
first Edward Cleburne of Cle-

of William ; was the ancestor of 
all those of that siraame in Ireland. 
He had three sons — 1. Gilbert, of 
Moigh ; 2. Piers ; 3. John, who 
was lord justice of Ireland. From 
the first and third sons we find no 
issue ; but the second left issue — 

3. Piers : second son of Meyler. 

4. Rickard : his son ; who was 
called Bisdeard na-gCath (meaning 
"Richard of the Battles"), from 
the many battles by him fought 
and won ; amongst which were the 
battle of Togher, the battle of Finlo, 
and the battle of Atha-na-Eiogh 
(literally the " Ford of the Kings"), 
now called Athenry : from the Kings 
there slain, viz. : — the king of Con- 
naught ; O'Kelly, king of Hy-Maine; 
together with most of the nobility 
of Connaught and Munster, who in 
those days were called petty Kings 
of the territories they possessed. 
According to some annalists this 
Rickard na-gCath left three sons — 
1. Thomas, who on the winning of 
that battle, was created " baron of 
Athenry;" 2. William, who was 
archbishop of Tuam ; 3. Richard 
Ruadh, who was ancestor of the 
Berminghams of Leinster, and 
whose son, Sir John De Berming- 
ham was created "earl of Louth," 
by King Edward the Second, A.D. 

1319, for the service performed by 
him and Sir Richard LeTuite in a 
great battle by them fought against 
Edward Le Bruice (or Edward 
Bruce), brother of Robert Bruce, 
King of Scotland, at Faughart, near 
Dundalk, in which battle the said 
Edward Bruce was slain (some say 
by the hands of Sir Richard Le 
Tuite), and his army routed and 
most of them slain.

According to Nicholson's History of Westmoreland (Vol. I., p. 253), this 
sirname is derived from Bland or Bland's Gill, in the chapel of How Gill 
and parish of Sedburg, in Yorkshire, England. Thoresby says (see 
Ducatus Leodensis, Vol. I. p. 126), that the family took its name from the 
Hamlet of Blond. The earliest mention, however, that we find of the 
name is in the year 1132 ; in connection with the Abbey of Fountains, of 
which Eichard, son of Hugh Bland, of Disford, was a benefactor. The 
name " Bland" was then sometimes written Blund, which has been 
modernized Blunt and Blount. 

One branch of this family has resided at Orton, in Westmoreland, 
since 1377 ; and another settled in Ireland. The Eev. James Bland, in 
1692, was Vicar of Killarney ; and Dean of Ardfert in 1721. He m. 
Lucy, daughter of Sir Francis Brereton, of Dublin ; and his son Francis,

who, in 1185, came to Ireland with Prince John, afterwards King John ; and got 
grants of land in Galway and Mayo.

M6r O'Brien the last King of Thomond, who submitted to King Henry 11. of England 
A.D. 1172. 

It may be here observed that " William" is Uilliam, in Gaelic ; and " Williai 
the Younger" is Uilliam Og. As time rolled on, Uilliam Og was contracted t 
Uilleog, anglicised Ulick, which literally means " Young William." It is also righ

that Grace O'Malley " was powerful in galleys and seamen." After having performed

Island, in Mayo, to Chester, where she landed, Grace O'Malley was delivered of a 
son — thence named Tioboid na Luinge (^meaning " Toby or Theobald of the Ship"),

In Camden's Britannia, page 462, we find that the family of " Fitzwalter," 
I alias " Botelere," alias Butler, derive their pedigree from the dukes of 
i Normandy ; as follows : 

1 ' 1. Eollo, of Norway, first duke 
of Normandy.* 

2. William Longespee : his son ; 
I the second duke. 

3. Eichard (1), the third duke : 
I his son ; d. A.D. 986. This Eichard 
I left two sons — 1. Eichard ; 2. God- 
! frey, the consul, earl of Bryomy. 

I 4. Eichard (2), the fourth duke : 
his son. 

5. Eobert : his son ; the fifth 
, duke. 

\ 6. William, duke of Normandy, 
" or William the Conqueror :" his 
son ; the first King of England, of 
the Norman line. 

' 7. Henry the First : his son ; the 
second King of England, of this line. 

8. King Henry the Second of 
England : his son. Etc. See p. 38, 
Vol. I. 

Godfrey, the consul, earl of Bryomy, 
second son of Richard (1), the third 
duke of Normandy (who is No. 3 on 
this list), was the ancestor of De 
Clare (now Clare); and of Butler, 
in England and Ireland. 

Gilsebert the Norman, earl of Eu, 
came into England with William 
the Conqueror ; and had four sons : 
! — 1. Gilsebert de Clare, earl of 
iClare, who was the ancestor of 
JEichard Strongbow, earl of Pem- 
broke, who m. Eva, dau. of Dermod 
|MacMorough, king of Leinster; 2. 
iRoger ; 3. Walter ; and 4. Robert, 

who was ancestor of Fitzivalter and 

Harvey Walter, who was lineally 
descended from the said Robert, 
here last mentioned, married a dau. 
of Gilbert Becket (and a sister of 
Thomas a Becket, the "Martyr," 
who was lord archbishop of Canter- 
bury), and by her had issue-^1. 
Theobald Walter, who, with all his 
family, was banished out of Eng- 
land, on account of the disfavour in 
which Thomas a Becket, archbishop 
of Canterbury, then stood with 
King Henry the Second. But soon 
after the murder of the said arch- 
bishop, and theking's public penance 
for having been accessory to his 
death, Henry the^Second recalled 
from banishment all the arch- 
bishop's friends and relatives, and 
promoted them to great offices and 
employments, particularly Theo- 
bald, son of the said Harvey Walter, 
for a time called "Theobald Walter," 
until the king took him into favour 
and sent him into Ireland with the 
title of "Chief Boteler" of that 
kingdom; where by the king's 
royal bounty, his own prowess, and 
valiant behaviour, he became very 
eminent, and attained great and 
large possessions. 

Some antiquaries are of opinion 
that, from his office of " chief 
boteler" or " chief butler" of Ire- 
land, this Theobald Walter's pos-

terity took the sirname of Butler ; 
but others hold that the name is 
derived from Robert (supposed to 
be "butler" to King William the 
Conqueror), who, in '< Doomsday 
Book," is called Robertus Piucerna. 
This Robert Piucerna, with two 
others of the same name (whether 
his brothers or sons, we know not), 
called Hugo Pincerna, and Richard 
Pincerna, held, each of them from 
the King, several towns in Eng- 
land : one of those three persons 
was grandfather of the above men- 
tioned Walter.

This ancient and knightly family may be traced in the male line to the 
early part of the 11th century; and, on the "spindle" side (through the 
Curwens), to the Scoto-Pictish and West-Saxon Kings. It derived its 
sirname from the Lordship of Cliburne, in Westmoreland, but the early 
descent of the manor is involved in obscurity, owing to the distinction of 
northern records in the border wars and feuds of the 12th and 13th 
centuries. The first record of the name appears in the Domesday or Great 
Survey of England, a.d. 1086, Vol. I., p. 234. See Jackson's " Cunvens 
of IForkington Hall; Symon of Durham; and Freeman's Norman Conq.. 
IV., 89. 

Clibome is pronounced *' Clebburn." The name is spelled in over thirty 
different ways, and is often confounded with Glyborne, Clabon, Claybough, 
Clayburgh, Gibeme, Caborne, and other entirely distinct families of diverse 

The word Clibome is derived from the Anglo-Saxon *' claeg," sticJcy earthy 
and " borne," a stream. Danish " Klaeg," clammy or stichy mud. Ferguson 
derives it from A.S. " clif," a hill, and " burne," a stream. And Picton, 
from Norse or Danish " Klif-brunnr," the Cliffstream (compare " Klifs- 
dabr," Clifdale). In the time of Edward the Confessor CHburn contained 
but ten carucates or 1200 acres. At the Survey there were 1440 acres; 
and by modern measurement it embraces 1360 acres, or ten miles in 
circumference. It is situated on an eminence on the Leith rivulet, about 
six miles from Penrith, and is bounded, E.S.W. by the Parish of Morland, 
and North by Louther, Clifton and Bingham. 

Eidpath and others state that the greatest part of Carlisle perished, 
and the records of the North suffered by fire in 1173 ; and again in 1292 
when the principal records and charters of the North were destroyed. 

As no Survey was made of Cumbria (which included Cumberland and 
Westmoreland), Clibome was entered among the Leicestershire manors of 
Robert de Vesci, who may have received it as a gift from the Conqueror 
after his second conquest of the North ; or he may have inherited it 
among the lands of the Saxon Ethelric (Domesday, p. 377.) Nicholson, 
the Historian of Westmoreland, says : " The manor* of Cliburn was early 
divided into two moieties, Cliburn-Tailbois, and Cleburn-Hervey ; the first 
derived its name from the owners, a branch of the Tailbois, Barons of 
Kendal ; Cliburn-Hervey in like manner ; but it had gone out of that 
name before the commencement of any of our accounts" (a.d. 1370). Vol. 
I., p. 457. 

* Manor : Single manors in one county were frequently entered in the Domesday 
(for convenience) under other shires ; as, for instance, Torhilmenstone in Gloucester- 
shii-e is entered under Hertfordshire ; Lapley, in Northamptonshire, under Essex. 
See Ellis's Introduction to Domesdat/, fol. 180 ; and Freeman's Norman Conq., I., 444. 


Though the antecessors of Hervey in Cliborne are not known, 
*' Cleborne," as a man's name occurs as a donor of houses in York to the 
Priory of Nastel, A.D. 1120 (Burton's MonasL Mor, p. 309), and "Clibu 
fits ^Istani" appears in a charter of Bishop Galfira, A.D. 1133-40. (Surtees 
Hist. Durham, III., 149.) The founder of the present family was un- 
doubtedly a Norman or Breton Hervey, after whom a moieby of Cliburn 
was named ; but whether this Hervens was a cadet of the great feudal 
Baron of Vesci, as Sedge wick implies (Appleby MSS.), or of the equally 
powerful house of Acarius of Ravens worth, is not clearly shown. (Senhouse 
Somerville MSS.) 

Both families held land in the immediate vicinity of Englewood ; in 
both, the Christian names of Hervey, Geoffrey, Eobert and WiUiam appear, 
but the arms of Cleburne are clearly Fitzhugh ; and Kavensworth, the 
chief seat of that family, is within twenty miles of Cleburn. 

The Vescies held in Englewood and Camerton till late in the 12th 
century. They were patrons of Franceys of Warnel-Bauk, a branch of the 
Franceys of Ciiburne, a family of some note there ; and it is a singular 
coincidence that Robert de Vesci should hold Ciiburne in 1083, and that 
a descendant, Hervey de Yesci (thought by some to have been lord of that 
manor in the 12th century) should pay a fine for marrying the widow of 
Sweyn FitzAlric iu 1130 {Pipe Roll, 31 Hen. I.), and not again appear as 
"De Yesci" in the records of Cumberland or Westmoreland. 

Watson Holland (Somerville MSS.) says : " A moiety of Cleburn came 
to Hervey in marriage through the Yiponts, who in turn derived it from 
the hereditary Forresters of Englewood." This is a more reasonable con- 
jecture than to suppose that in the time of Henry I. " Rmulph Meschia 
gave it with Graystock and other lands to the ancestors of Walter Fitz 
Ivo, whose grand-daughter Alice married Henry Fitz Hervey of Ravens- 
wath, and having brought him large possessions in the north, that he 
enfeoffed Alan of Cleburn." This Walter Fitz Iv^ was probably a 
Tailbois, who Hodgson thinks was the immediate progenitor of the 
"Greystocks;" and it is certain that Cleburn-Tailbois and Yanwith were 
possessed by members of the Tailbois family holding under the Yiponts 
and Cliffords in the 13th century. (Chart. Naominstor, Fetherstone 
Castle.) In the Vetinpont inheritarum partitionem, A.D. 1267, the "homige 
of Lucas Tailbois was assigned to Idonea de Yertenponto for Cleburn 
Tailbois" (14 Edw. I., 1286, Hist. West. L, 457.) And by an Inquisition 
held 8 Edw. II. (1315) "Lucas Tailbois held of Robert de Chfford, one 
moiety of Cliburn, the Wardship valued at £13 6s. 8d., and Cornage at 
12s. 4^d." In further proof of tradition we now know that Lucy, sole 
daughter and heir of Ivo Tailbois and the Countess Lucy, married for her 
second husband Ranulph Meschin (first Earl of Chester of that family), 
whose daughter married Robert d'Estrivers, forester of Englewood. His 
daughter Ibria married Ranulph Engayne, whose son William married 
Eustachia and had an only daughter and heir. Ada Engayne, married to 
Simon de Morville (1138-57), who had Roger de Morville of Meaburn, 
father of that Sir Hugh de Morville (vita 2 John, 1201), who granted part 
of Cliburn, known as Clifton,* to Gilbert Eugaiae and his heirs, temp. 

* Clifton : Part of Cliburn waskaowi as " CUhurn-CUftoti''' and is aeoouated for 
as sacli with the othar moieties of " Tailbois-CIiftoa" and Hervey and Little Clifton. 


Hen. 11. This Sir Hugh's sister Maud de Morville married William de 
Vetinponte (N. and B. Hist. Westd., p. 266), and had by her "Maud's 
Meaburn" (Taylor's Halls of Wcstd., p. 259), which he gave to one of the 
family of Franceys* of Chburn. The other half of Meaburn — " Meaburn 
Kegis," belonging to Sir Hugh de Morville, was seized with all his other 
lands and possessions into the King's hands, for his complicity in Becket's 
murder (31st Dec, 1170), and his forfeited estates were granted to Eobert 
de Vetinponte, who may have enfeoffed Alan Fitz Hervey with that 
moiety of the manor known as " Cliburn Hervey." 

The manor must have been exchanged at a very early period with 
the Barons of Kendal ("who owned nearly all the "Bottom of West- 
moieland," including Baiton Louther and Morland) or with the Chester 
Earls; for Eanulph le Meschin, who mairied Lucy, the daughter and 
heiress of Ivo de Tailbois, 1st Baron of Kendal, gi anted the Barony of 
Coupland to his brother William Meschines, who divided his lands 
among his kinsmen and followers. " To Waltheof Fitz Cospatric, he 
gave the manors of Clifton, Little Clifton, and Bingham, and to 
Ketel son of Eldred, Morland and Woikington. (Denton MS.) Kethel 
gave the church of Morland to the Abbey of St. Mary's at Yoik, and left 
Workington to his second son Oime, and Morland and Grayrigg to his son 
and heir Gilbert, second Baron of Kendal, whose son William^Tailbois (de 
Lancaster) gave these manois by a charter In liheritm maritagmm together 
with Agnes his daughter, to Alexander or William de Windsor." (Collins's 
Peerage.) Eanulph retained for himself the Forest of Englewood, and 
probably the adjacent manor of Cliburne, came to his daughter, who mar- 
ried Eobert d'Estinor (Hereditaiy Forester of Englewood), from whom the 
Moivillesinheiited. How Clifton, Bingham, and Little Clilton, passed 
from Waltheof to the Moiville's, does not appear; but it is certain that 
Sir Hugh de Morville gave Cliburn-Clifton to Gilbert Engayne, tew]?. 
Henry H., to which grant Hervey Niger was a witness, temp. Hen. JL 
The leileited estates ol Sir Hugh weie granted by King John (1199-1216) 
to his councillor Eobeit de Vetinpont, upon whose decease (Clans. 51, 
Hen. Ill, 1267) they were divided between his two daughters : Cliburn 
passing to Idonea (wife of Eoger de Leyburne), who at her death (8 Edw. 
HL, 1335) left it with all her other lands in Westmoreland to her great 
nephew Eobeit de Clifford; while in the hands of the Crown (Hen. H. 
and John,1175-1216)Clibuin may have been granted to Alan, sonof Heniy 
of Eayenswoith, by the King, or he may have been enfeoffed by the c'e

the Vetinponts. Be this as it may, in 1292 (20 Edw. I., Hist. West. L, 275),

descendants held the manor of Cliburn-Hervey, by " Knight service of 
iihe Crown" (Collins's Peerage, p. 426) and by " cornage" only, of the 
Viponts and Cliffords. {Escheats, 8 Edw. IL, Hist. West. I. 277.) 

The church of Cliburn is a quaint Norman structure, situated within a 
stone's throw of the Hall. It is mentioned by Grose, "among the antiqui- 
ties worthy of notice in Westmoreland." (Antiq. Eng. and Wales, vi., 22.) 
It was dedicated to St. Cuthbert of Lindisfarne, and marks one of the 
resting places of the Saint's body in its flight from Holy Island to escape 
the Danes, a.d. 873. There is no mention of the church in Domesday, but 
its omission "is no evidence, or by no means proof that one was not in 
pxistence when the survey was compiled." {Notes and Queries,26 S. VII., 139.) 
The present structure was probably built by Orme or a Baron of Kendal 
in the early part of the 11th century, and was granted to St. Mary's, at 
York. It was confirmed to the Abbot and Convent of St. Mary's in 1136, 
by Adelulph, 1st Bishop of Carlisle {Hist. West. IL, 250-1), audits Advow- 
son was granted to Sylvester, Bishop of Carlisle in 1281. {Hist. West.) 
Thanks To the munificence of its worthy Rector (the Rev. Clarke Watkins, 
Burton, M.A.) the old church is in excellent preservation. It contains 
a quaint font of the 15th century, an ancient cross, a few brasses, and 
some fine stained glass in the east and south windows. In the chancel is a 
handsome mural tablet to the memory of Sophia Portia Burton (daughter 
of Sir William Pilkington of York), first wife of the present Rector, who 
died on the 9th Sept., 1861. On the north side is one of those curious 
" Leper windows," now so rare in England, which is filled with painted 
glass "in memory of Cuthbert Louther Cleborne." All the original monu- 
ments and brasses were probably destroyed or stolen, during the civil war, 
like those of the Cliffords at Skipton ; and the modern ones very imperfectly 
replace some earlier memorials and inscriptions, removed, lost, or destroyed 
in former church requisites. 

Cliburn Hall, with its deer-park, terraced walks and pleasure grounds, 
had fallen into decay before the end of the last century, and has since 
undergone many changes to fit it for the purpose of a modern farm house. 
Taylor {Manorial Halls of Westmoreland, p. 253) says : " Since the traces of 
foundation walls surrounding the Hall, and from the extensive range of 
buildings that are attached to it, this must, in the time of Richard 
Cleburne, have been a place of very considerable importance." It was rebuilt 
in 1567, by the said Richard (who married the heiress of Kirkbride), upon 
the site of an earlier structure, or on the foundations of the ancient fortalice 
or " Pele of Cliburn," for the 13th century donjon or keep remains. This 
massive tower contains three stories, and its upper part " carried the battle- 
mented parapet which was removed within the memory of_ the present 
tenant, when the new roof was put on." (p. 254.) And again, at p. 252, 
he says : " With the successor of Thomas Cleburn ended the race of Cle- 
burn at Cliburn, and the Hall manor passed to the family of Louther. 
One of the sons went over to Ireland and founded the important family of 
the Cleburns of Ballycollaton in Tipperary. In the ancient church 
of Kilbarron there is a memorial flagstone to this William Cleburn 
of Ballycollaton, second son of Thomas, ob. 1684." The descendants of 
this family are still benefactors of the Church of Cleburn, but the

Commencing with Bardolph, the common progenitor of several nobl 
families of the north, the descent is as follows : — 


1. Bardolph,! Lord of Eavenswath 
and other manors in Richmond- 
shire, was a great landowner in 
Yorkshire, who gave a carucate of 
land and the churches of Patrick 
Brampton and Eavenswath in pure 
alms to the Abbey of St. Mary's at 
York. In his old age, when weary 
of the world and its trouble, he be- 
came a monk, and retired to the 
Abbey, of which he had been a 
benefactor. (See Dugdale's and 
Burke's Extinct Peerage.) He was 
succeeded by his son and heir — 

2. Akaris, or Acarius FitzBar- 
dolph, who founded the Abbey of 
Fors (5 Stephen, A.D. 1140) and 
granted the original site of Jervaulx 
to the Suvignian monks at York. 
He also gave a charter to the Priory 
of St. Andrews, and lands and 
tenths in Eafenswad (Eavenswath), 
to which gifts. — " Hen. fit. Hervei, 
and Conan d'Ask" were witnesses. 
{Marrig. Charters, Coll. Top. EL 
Genealogy, III., 114.) He died, a.d. 
1161, leaving two sons : 

I. Herveus, of whom presently. 

II. Walter. 

3. Hervey Fitz Akaris (a.d. 1165, 
ob. 1182), "a noble and good 
knight," who consented that Conan, 
Earl of Eichmond, should translate 
the abbey of charity to East Wilton, 
and place it on the banks of the 
river Jore, from which it was called 
Jorevaulx. He was a witness with 
his brother Walter to a charter of 
Conan IV., Duke of Brittany and Earl 
ofEichmond(ll Hen. II., A.D. 1165); 
and about the same time he "gave 
his 9th sheaf of corn which grew 
on his lands in Askew, Brompton 
Lemingford, and Eavenswet to the 
Priory of Maryke in the Deanery of i 
Eichmond." (Burton Monast. Ebor., 
p. 357.) He died, a.d. 1182, leav^ 
ing three sons : 

I. Henry FitzHervey (ob. 1201), 
who mar. Alice, daughter of 
Randolph FitzWalter de Grey 
stocke (ob. 1 2 J ohn 1211), from 
whom descended the Barons 
FitzHugh. He witnessed ai 
charter of Duke Conan, in 
1165, one of Conan de Asch, in 
1196; and was a witness with 
his brother Alan, to the charters 

*Race: "Nobiles," says Coke, "sunt qui arma antecessorum suorum-proferre possunf^' 
" Princes or lords may flourish or may fade, 
A breath can make them, as a breath has made." 
So Littr^ defines a noble as less than a gentleman : " Tout gentilhomme est noble, 
tnais tout noble n'est jjos gentilhomme ; le prince fait des nobles, mats le saug fait desgentil- 
hommes." — DiCT. de l'Acad. 

t Bardolph : Harrison (see the Sistory of Yorkshire) deduces Bardolph and his J 
brother Bodin from Thorfin, fil. Cospatric de Eavensivet et Dalton in Yorkshire, temp. 
Canute ; while Watson makes Bardolph the son-in-law, and not the son of Thorfin. 
Bardolph is " said to be of the family of the Earls of Eichmond." — See Gale's Honoris 
de Richmond ; and Whittaker's Eichmondshire. Burke acknowledges that " the earlier! 
generations of the Earls of Richmond are very conflicting." The families of Crawford, \ 
L'Estrange, and FitzAUan of Bedale, also derive from them Bretin Earls ; and the 
FitzHughs, Askews, and others, from Bardolph. Whittaker says : Askew, Lincoln- 
shire, was granted after 1086 by Alan, Earl of Richmond, to Bardolph, his brother, 
father of Askaris, ancestor of the Barons FitzHugh of Ravensworth. Henry FitzAskew 
granted tithes of Askew to Marrig. (Burton Monast. Ebor. 269.) Randolph Fitz- 
Henry had Henry and Adam, between whom Askew was divided. Adam assumed the 
name of As'kew,^'' — Hist. Richmond ; and The Norman People, 144. 


of Peter FitzThornfinn, and of 
Gilbert FitzAlan, 1196-8. 

II. Richard. 

III. Alan, of whom presently. 

4. Alan, dictus " Cleburne" {Le 
Neve MSS., III., 11 4), youngest son 
of Hervey FitzAkaris, son of Bar- 
dolph, •' was a witness with his bro- 
ther Henry (" Henrico fit. Hervei, 
Alan fre. ei, Conan d'Aske," and 
others) to charters of Gilbert Fitz- 
Alan, Alan FitzAdam, and Peter 
FitzThorfinn, to Marrig Abbey, co. 
York," c. 1188-98. (CoU. Top. Et 
Genealogy, III., 114.) Richard Her- 
vei, who witnessed a charter of Ada 
of Kirby Sleeth (c. 1196), and 
" Rich, de Hervei, whose daughter 
Galiene gave lands in Blencogo to 
Abbey of Holm Cultram, for main- 
tenance of infirm poor" (N. and B. 
Eist. West. I., 172-89; Hutch. Hist. 
Currib. II., 331), are probably iden- 
tical with Richard the second son of 
this Hervey. Alan, the third and 
youngest son received {temp. John,) 
a moiety of the manor of Cliburn, 
CO. Westmoreland ; and a fine was 
paid for the alienation of lands there 
in 1215 : "Fin. 16 Joan. m. d. de 
Terras in Clebui'n," S. V. Lanercost. 
(See Tanner's Notitia, Hutchinson's 
Hist. Cumh., I., 58.) This manor 
gave to Alan FitzHervey " a local 
habitation and a name," but " when 
a man takes his surname from his 
possessions or residences, it is very 
hard to say at which particular 
point, the personal designation 
passes into the hereditary surname." 
(Freeman Norm. Conq., V., 379.) 
Prior to the Domesday, and for nearly 
two centuries after, there were no 

fixed surnames : the eldest son took 
the Christian name of the father, 
while theyoungest assumed the name 
of his own manor; hence '^Alan" 
is found in the charters* of that 
period, although the surname must 
also have been used, for Palgrave 
states that "Idonea, daughter of 
Allen Clibburne, married Walter, 
the fourth son of William Tankard, 
the Steward of Knaresborough, and 
had issue George Tankard, who 
died Sine prole, temp. Henry III., 
(1216-72). See Baronetagelll., 387; 
English Baronage, 1741. 

5. Hervey (In Bas-Breton, 
"Hgerve" or "Hoerve," from Old 
Germ. " Hervey," means strong in 
tear) held lands and tenements in 
Cliburne, Clifton, and Milkanthorpe, 
by knight service, tempore, Hen. III., 
and Edw. I. (1216-72). 

There was also a Roland Fitz- 
Hervy {temp. Hen. III.) who mar. 
Alice de Lexington, and held " Sut- 
ton uj)on Trent." 

Hervey de Cliburne was suc- 
ceeded by his son and heir Geoffrey. 
{Inq. P. M. 8 Edw. II., 1315.) 

6. Geoffreyf FitzHervey (de Cle- 
burne), whose heir with Gilbert 
d'Engayne of Cliburne-Clifton, and 
others, " held divers tenements in 
Cliburne, Louther, Clifton, and 
Milkanthorpe, by service." {Escheats, 
8 Edw. II., 1315.) At another in- 
quisition, temp. Edw. II„ " Walter 
de Tylin, John de Staffel, and 
Robert de Sowerley (as trustees, 
probably in a settlement) held a 
moiety of Cliburne by cornage.'^ 
(CoUins's Peerage, p. 428.) The heirs 
of Geoffrey, son of Hervey held by

one of the said heirs, became of age, 
and succeeded to the moiety of C'ii- 

7. Sir Eobert,* lord of the manor 
of Cliburn-Hervey, was a person of 
some distinction, temp. Edw. III., 
and was knight of the Shire of 
Westmoreland, 7 and 10 Eich. II., 
1384-7. {Hid, West., App. I., 459.) 
In 1336 (9 Edw. III.), he was "a 
witness with Sir Hugh de Louther 
to settlement by Sir Walter Strick- 
land, of the manor of Hackthorp, 
upon his sons, Thomas, John, and 
Ralf Strickland." {Hist. JFest. II., 92.) 
In 1356 "he held lands in Ireland," 
but he apparently made no settle- 
ment there. In right of his wife Mar- 
garet, he held the lands and was lord 
of the manors of Bampton of Cun- 
dale, Bampton Patryke and Knipe 
Patric, in ^Vestmoreland. (Inq. Post 
Mort., 43 Edw. HI.; 15 Eich. II., 

He married Margaret, daughter 
and co-heir of Henry de Cundalef 
and Kyne (one of the Drengi of 
Westmoreland), who held their 
lands before the Conquest, and were 
permitted to retain them. This 
Henry de Cundale was in descent 
from that Henry, lord of Cundale, 
who, temp. Hen. IL (1154), among 
other principal men of note, M-as a 
witness to a compromise between 
the Abbot of Byland concerning 
manor of Bleaton, and in 13 John 

(1212) was a witness to a grant of 
Eobert de Yipont to Shapp Abbey ; 
and who in 1201 {OUata Roll, 2 John) 
made a fine with the king not to go 
with him to Normandy. Sir Eobert 
had issue one son, John, who, dying 
at an early age, was succeeded by 
his second son, John de Clybourne. 

8. John de Cleburne (who died 
vita patris), left two sons: 

I. Eoland. 

II. John. 

His widow, Margaret (who married 
for her second husband John de 
Wathecoppe of Warcupp), " held 
the manor of Cliburn-Hervey for 
Eowland, son and heir of the said 
John Cleburne and Margaret." (Inq. 
P. M., 15 Eich. II., 1392; Hist. 
JFest., I., 459.) Eowland dying 
young, his lands passed to his bro- 
ther John. 

9. John, second son of John de 
Clyborne and Margaret his wife, held 
Cliburn-Hervy in 1422, 9 Hen. V. : 
" Johannes Cliburne pro manerio 
de Cleburn-Hervy, xvi. s. ix^. {Harl. 
MS. 628, ff. 228 b.) In 1423, he 
was lord of the manors of Cliburn- 
Hervey and Cliburn-Tailbois (the 
two moieties having been united 
after the death of John, only son 
and heir of Eobert de Franceys of 
Cleburne, vho married Elizabeth,, 
daughter and heir of the last Walter

" held the manors of Bampton Pat-

Thornthwaite Hall was the mansion house of Bampton Patric, called after Patric

records, though he was probably

and was assessed for non-payment 
of his dues on this manor, due the 
Diocese of Carlisle, 5 Hen. VIII.

neglected his estate, engaged in 
many visionary schemes, and be- 
came so wild, reckless, and extra- 
vagant, that in Nev., 1512, "he 
with Henry Lord Clifford and 
others, were proceeded against for 
debts due by them to the king."

iSiichard Cleburne was engaged in 
i Rebuilding his Hall in the Tudor 
lityle. Over the arched doorway he 
Ibserted an armorial slab with a 
liurious rhyming inscription in old 
ifinglish characters, now so weather 
3l?orn as to be scarcely decipherable.

On each side of this Tador archway 
are two heater shaped shields con- 
taining the arms of Cleburne and 
Kirkbride, and immediately over 
the inscription a quartered shield : 
1st and 4th, arg. 3 chevrouels braced 
a chief sable (for Cleborne) ; 2nd 
and 3rd, arg. a cross engrailed verfc 
(for Kirkbride). The extravagance 
entailed by the re-building of the 
Hall and other improvements led to 
the mortgage and sale of Bampton- 
Cundale (in which parish is the 
beautiful Haweswater Lake), and of 
other fair manors which sadly im- 
poverished the Cliburns. 

In 1571 he was again mixed np 
with the Lowfchers in a plot in 
which the Duke of Norfolk was a 
principal; and in which he lost his 
head, when all these ambitious 
schemes came to an untimely end. 
Full of intemperate zeal for his 
religion, he continued to make him- 
self obnoxious to Eokeby, Walsing- 
ham and Leicester, " who thought it 
pious merit to betray and ensnare 
those eminent persons who were not 
yet quite weaned from the Church 
of Rome." (Hist. Cumb., L 387.) By 
them he was closely watched and 
persecuted, and was several times 
indicted and imprisoned in the 
" Fleet," Accused by Kokeby* of 
being a " Recusant," and of being 
'^ carried away with blind zeal to 
favour and hold with the Romish 
Church" {State Papers, 1581-90, Vol. 
clxxxiii. 207) ; and harrassed by his 
affairs, his health gave way, and in 
1577 he was obliged to spend six 
months at Bath. In October, 1584, 
he was so completely broken down 
that Rokeby declared him to be 
" aged, infirm^ and sickly," and 
again " he had permission to repair 
to Bath, where he remained from 

spy" (in 1568) was set to watch his move-

17. Thomas, eldest son of Edmi 
of Killerby, born 1580, died 1 
Feb., 1640, was the 14th Lord 
the manor of Cliburn. He was 
an indolent nature and melanch' 
disposition, shy, silent, and reserv 
and by no means fitted to deal w 
the stirring events of the time, 
found his estates very much enci 
bered and himself so impoverisl 

that he was forced to mortgage 
lands, and to borrow money fr 
Sir Timothy Hutton, of Marsii 
He was (among others) assessed ii 
the transplantation of the Graer 
or Grahams who were shipped ;|i 
Workington for Ireland. (Hist. IP 
L, cxviii.) " The whole sept of 
Graemes, under their chief Wal 
the gude man of Netherby, he i 
troublesome on the Scottish boni 


were transplanted from Cumberland 
to Roscommon ; and in the schedule 
to the articles affecting this transfer, 
it appears that the Sept consisted of 
124 persons, nearly all bearing the 
sirname of Graeme or Graham." 
(State Papers, Jas. I., 1603-6, page 
554.) This restored quiet to the 
Borders ; and Thomas lived a retired 
life at Cliburne and at Killerby, 
cultivating and improving his lands. 
He took but little interest in affairs 
of State, and lived happily with his 
loving wife Frances, daughter of Sir 
Richard Lowther, the Sheriff of 
Cumberland (to whom, in 1568, was 
committed the custody of Mary 
Queen of Scots, after her flight from 
Langside), and grand-daughter of 
Sir Hugh Lowther, who married 
Dorothy, sole daughter and heir of 
Henry, 10th Lord Cliff'ord, the 
" Shepherd Lord" of Wordsworth's 
beautiful poem. . . He was married 
at Lowther Church, 10th March, 
1594 (being then but 14 years old, 
and his wife 16 ; she having been 
born 15th Aug., 1578), and had issue 
three sons and four daughters :

18. Edmund, of Killerby, eldest 

son and heir of Thomas* of Cle- 
burne, was born in 1605. On 
"coming of age" he found his 
estates so much involved that, owing 
to the troublous state of the times, 
it was impossible to extricate them. 
Like his father, he avoided politics 
and treasonable schemes, but having 
spent most of his remaining fortune 
in support of the King, he was 
eventually swept into the vortex 
and ruined. 

The fair lordships of Cliburne 
had dwindled away one by one, till 
the owner of " Killerby" was re- 
duced to the position of a Yeoman 
or Squire. He resided at Bampton,t 
in 1663, and in 1665 was one of 
the Governors and. Trustees of the 
Bampton Grammar School j and a 
Feoffee of the Free School and Hos- 
pital of Thesu, at Warton, Lanca- 
shire. About 1625-6, he married 
Elizabeth, second daughter of Sir 
Timothy Hutton, of Marske, county 
York (grand father of Matthew 
Hutton, Lord Archbishop of Can- 
terbury, and " Primate of All Eng- 

* Thomas : Son aud heir of Thomas, of Cliburn, and Frances Lowtlier, who

Yeoman was a military title equal to our 18th century Squire : 
" A knight of Cales, a squire of Wales, 
And a laird of the north countries, 
A yeoman of Kent with his yearly rent 
Cuuld buy them up all three."

she doe marry with my son

God to bless her.") To each 
of his grand-daughters who 
were living at his death, Sir 
Timothy left " £20 a piece to 
be paid at their marriage." 
(Will proved 9th Dec, 1631." 
Edward Cleburne seems to have 
resided at Killerby as late as 1630 ; 
for, in a letter written by Thomas 
Bowes (16th January, 1630) to his 
" kinde cozen Matthew Hutton, 
Esq., of Marske," he speaks of 
"meeting my cozen Cliborne at 
Cilleihie."— Hutton MSS. 

19. — Timothy (eldest son and 
heir of Edmund the last lord of the 
manor of Cleburne) was in such 
straightened circumstances after the 
Civil War, that, to quote the quaint 
language of Machell, " He sold the 
Hall to Mr. Collingwood, a Bishop- 
rick gentleman, who sold it to Mr. 
Boger Soray, who yet lives at 
Broughton-Tower, in Cumberland, 
who exchanged it with Mr. Edward 
Lee, of Broughton, for Broughton- 
Tower. Mr. Lee (c. 1664) mort- 
gaged it to old Sir John Lowther, 

whose srand-child now enjoys it." 
{Machell MSS., III. in.) 

After the sale of the Hall and 
Manor, the few members of the 
family that remained became humble 
tillers of the soil their fathers had 
owned as lords : thus the lowest 
and the highest were very near 
together, and so have been since the 
world began; The Wars of the 
Eoses and the great Civil War had 
so utterly ruined them that, like 
many another ancient house, scarcely 
one of its members emerged from 
"that soothing obscurity which, 
o'ershadows the country Squire." ' 
Preferring the green woods with 
peace and mediocrity to vaulting ; 
ambition or the gaieties of a court, 
their pride was that of home and I 
2:)eace, expressed in the French dis- 
tich : 

" Je suis ni Due ni Prince aussi 
Je suis le Sire de Couci." 

Content with this spirit of self- 
importance, they wrapped them- 
selves up in a a mantle of exclusive- 
ness, caring so little for politics or 
the interests of their country, that 
while they seldom descended to the 
level of the masses, they rarely rose 
to the highest positions in the State, 
and so sank into merited oblivion. 
Thus ended the race of Cleburne at 
Cliburne ! 

Timothy Cleburne retired to 
"Yorkshire, where he married Mary, 
fourth daughter of John Talbot, of 
Thornton le Street, Colonel on the 
part of Charles L ; and, failing issue, 
the representation of a family which! 
had flourished for six hundred years| 
on the Border, passed to his cousinj 
William Cleburne, of Bally cullatam 
Castle, in Ireland, whose descendant 
in the sixth generation, William 
Cleburne, Esq., of Omaha (eldest 
brother of the late General Cle 
burne) is the present representative 
of the elder branch of Cliburne. 



18. William* Ciallmhar (or 
"Wise William") of St. John's 
Manor, co. Wexford (third son of 
Thomas, of Cliburne-Hall and Kill- 
erby, 14th Lord of the Manor of 
Cliburne), came into Ireland with 
his uncle, Sir Gerard Lowther,f and 
settled in the " City of Kilkenny." 
He held the Manor of St. John, 
Enniscorthy, co. Wexford, of Sir 
Gerard Lowther (Lord Chief Justice 
of L'eland), which manor the said 
Gerard bequeathed to his nephew, 
Lowther Parsons. In the " Lands- 
down Census" relating to Wexford 
(1659), in the List of Tituladres (or 
persons holding lands at the time 
of the Survey) " William Cleburne, 
Gentleman," occurs ; and, under 
Westmeath, is the name of his 
kinsman, " John Clibbome, Gentle- 
man" (the Quaker friend of Richard 
( 1 Henry) Cromwell, the Lord 
Deputy of Ireland), who held the 
lands of Legan and Capiatack, 
(Lands. Census, Westmeath, 1636-9, 
R. I. Acad.) in that county, and 
purchased " Moate:}: Castle" from 
William Handcock, of Tivy. {Incl. 
1680, see Assig. in Chan., 1699. 
Record Office, Dublin.) Another 
kinsman, William Cleburne, D.D., 
Vicar of Nidd, and Dean of Eipon 
in 1606, Prebendary of St. Patrick's, 
1630, and Dean of Kildare in 1636, 

also held lands in Ireland, and " lost 
property in the Rebellion of 1640, 
to the extent of X977, and his 
church living worth £186 a year." 
{MS. Trin. Coll. Fasti, 2, 3 ; and 
Cotton's Fasti Ecdes. Hiber. IL 161.) 
William, of St. John's Manor, took 
an active part in relieving the suffer- 
ings of the "transplanted Irish," 
and in 1655, specially exerted him- 
self in behalf of Sir Richard Barn- 
well, the Bellews, and Nettervilles, 
assisting them (as far as lay in his 
power) in extending their time, and 
otherwise diminishing the hardships 
of them and other distressed Irish. 
In 1677, he purchased from Capt. 
Solomon Cambie "the castles, towns 
and lands of Ballycollitan, the 
villadge and lands of Bunnadubber 
and of Killiuboy or Knock, Bally- 
cullatan ; also that part of Annagh 
from the Castle of Annagh to the 
ditch of Kilbulloir, together with 
all the profits and emoluments from 
the said castles, towns, villadges and 
lands," as by a Deed enrolled in the 
Public Record Office, Dublin, dated 
20th July, 1677. This William was 
an eccentric§ character, full of quips 
and cranks, and of a kindly but 
contradictory nature. As — 
" He was a man of middle age, 
In aspect manly, grave, and sage," 

he soon became the arbitrator of 
all the rural disputes of his neigh- 
bourhood, and the friend and adviser 

* William : This William has been confounded with his uncle William, who 
became Secretary in the Colony of Virginia, in 1626, and who in 1633-4, agreed to 
furnish 50 planters to Plowden's "New Albion ;" for which he was to receive "5,000 
acres and a manor with Royalties in America." — ^QQ Art. of Agreement, in Public 
Record Oilce, Dublin, 21st June, 1634. 

i Lowther: This Sir Gerard (born 21st Dec, 1561; died 14th Oct., 1624, and 
buried at Christ Church,) must be distinguished from the unprincipled Sir Gerard 
Lowther (a natural son of Sir Christopher), who was also a Judge in Ireland, in 1628, 
and who died and was buried at St. Michan's, Dublin, 10th April, 1660. 

X Moate : John Clibborn, the Quaker, of Moate, published in London a tract 
" Protesting against the transplantation of the Irish to Connaught." 

^Eccentric: Sir Rowland Threlkeld, a maternal ancestor of the Cleburnes, was 
just such an oddity, " who lived like a hermit, and would not allow a woman to enter 
his Castle walls." — Notes and Queries, 1S56, p. 191.

of the poor — a veritable " Squire 
Meldrum" among his tenants. At 
his castle, he led the life of a recluse, 
relieving the suffering and dis- 
tressed, and dabbling so much in 
Philosophy and Physic, that he 
obtained the sobriquet of " Wise 
WiUiam," or the "Seer of Bally- 
collitan." So distinguished was he 
among his neighbours for good 
■works, justice, and unostentatious 
liberality, that he escaped the en- 
mity of the Rapparees and country 
people, " who," says Froude, "hated 
the English settlers at this period." 
(Ireland in the 18th Century.) About 
1640, he married " Bridgetta Warde 
of the City of Kilkenny," and, dying 
in 1682 (Admin, granted 21st Feb., 
1682. Public Record Office, Dub- 
lin), left issue two sons and one 
daughter : 

I. William, of Ballycollitan-Castle, 
of whom presently. 

II. Richard, of Bunadubber. 

III. Mary, who married Richard 
Allen, and had issue Stephen, 
and others. 

Richard (second son of " Wise 
William" of Bally cullatan) held the 
lands of " Bannadubber," and re- 
ceived by the will of his brother 
William "two parts of the issues 
and profitts out of St. John's 
Manor, co. Wexford, with £10 per 
annum for life out of the lands of 
BallycoUiton, my red stone rings, 
ear-rings, and best black suits of 
cloathes and perriwigs." (Will 

proved at Dublin, 1684.) He was 
a man of fine personal appearance, 
and possessed of such infinite tact 
that he managed to steer clear of 
all political and religious factions, 
and thus was enabled to preserve 
his estate :* 

" In that dark time of cruel wrong, when 
on our country's breast 
A dreary load, a ruthless code, with

(Will proved, 5th February, 1684-5 
Pub. Rec. Oft", Dublin.) Though 
firm believer in the " Divine right 
of Kings," he married the daughtei 
of a Cromwellian officer, — Elizabeth 
Cambie of Annagh Castle, countj 
Tipperary, by whom he had one 
child, a daughter Elizabeth, born 
22nd May, 1682, and died 4th 
June, 1682. Having no male issue 
all his landed estate in Wexford 
and Tipperary passed to his nepheW

of Bunadubber; with the provisc 
that, " in default of heirs male o) 


* Estate : In these troublous times it was said that " a Cleburne might ride ii| 
safety from one end of the county to the other." Some amusing stories are told o 
their popularity with the peasantry, and with the Rapparee Chief "Galloping Hogan' 
and his band. Armistead tells the following, of John Clibborn of Moate Castle, wh( 
was such a friend and champion of the Quakers, that he built them a meeting-housi 
(still standing) within his castle grounds. His life was constantly endangered b' 
succouring these people : " On one occasion he was dragged by the hair of his head t> 
the place of execution by some Tories, when fortunately another party of Tyrconnell' 
men arrived and inquiring ' who have you got there,' were answered ' Clibborn 
' Clibborn !' echoed they, ' a hair of his head shall not be touched ;' and they bore hir 
off in triumph."— A^e/ec^. Miscel. Vol. I., 197. The Cleburnes are not found anion 
" the Adventurers for land in Ireland," they purchased all- their estates, and were s 
free from " Land-hunger," that the Irish felt kindly towards them. , 


their bodies, all his property was to 
descend to the heirs general of the 
said William and Richard." He 
was of a weak, unstable nature, 
" light-hearted, reckless, extrava- 
gant, and so much given to hospi- 
tality, that he was more than once 
suspected of ' coshering' the 
Priests and Tories." Somewhat 
haughty and arrogant with his 
equals, he was affable even to 
familiarity with his inferiors and 
dependants ; but his was " the pride 
that apes humility," for in his will 
he directs that " my body shall be 
buried in the Church of Kilbarrow,* 
covering my grave with a plaine 
marble stone, ingraving thereon my 
name and coate of Armes." The 
tomb of the Oleburnes is still in a 
fair state of preservation near the 
chancel of this venerable ruin. 
Lenihan, the Historian of Limerick, 
says (iV. and Q., 1871, p. 477): 
" The inscription on the tomb-stone 
on the vault of Sir William Cleb- 
burne, as he is called, is (uuder a

Richard of Bunadubber, succeeded 

to the " castles, towns, and lands 

of Bally colitan, Biinnadubber, 

Knockballycolitan, and part of 

Annagh," in accordance with the 

will of his uncle William. He was 

very popular among his tenants ; 

raced, rode, and lived beyond his 

means," and is said to have "suf- 
fered a Recovery of his lands, 
whereby his son John was enabled 
to alienate the estates from the 
heirs male of the family." He mar.

The Irish family of O'Coidey or Coichij, which has been modernized CoUey, 
'is descended from Cu-Uladh [cu-ula] an t-Sioda (meaning " The Ulster 
'Silken Warrior"), who (see p. 452, Vol. I. of this Edition) is No. 108 on 

the " Flinn" (Lords of Tuirtre or Northern Clanaboj^) pedigree; and who 
i lived about the period of the English Invasion of Ireland. 
■ The late Duke of Wellington having requested us to assist him in 
1 elucidating the origin of his family, and ascertaining the" birth-place and 
, date of birth* of his father, the Great Iron Duke, we consulted every 

j * Birth : Having, in December, ISS5, been referred to on this subject by a friend 

in Montreal, we wrote as follows : 

The " iRoy Duke." 
To the Editor of Notes and Queries. 
Sir, — Having seen under the heading iVo^es and Queries in The Montreal Daily 
Star of the 5th instant a correspondence respecting " the birthplace and the birthday 
of the great Duke of Wellington," I beg to say that as the author of "Irish Pedigries," 
I had the privilege of the friendship of, and a correspondence with, the late Duke 
of Wellington, who was the son of the " Iron Duke." Respecting the petition against 
his father's return as member of Parliament for the borough of Trim, on the ground of 
his having been (as indeed he was at the time) a minor ; and the evidence of the old 
nurse who attended Lady Morniugton on her confinement, the late Duke mentioned 
to me that, notwithstanding the nurse's evidence to the contrary, the " Iron Duke" 
was a minor at the time of his election for Trim ; and he therefore requested me to 
find out, if possible, in my researches, the birthplace and birthday of his illustrious 
father. In looking up several registers of births, marriages and deaths bearing on my 
subject, I met in the Baptismal Register of St. Peter's Protestant Episcopal Church in 
Dublin, the date of the great Duke of Wellington's baptism ; but the birthplace and 
birthday are not mentioned. On that Baptismal Register is a brass clasp on which is 
engraved the fact that in said register the baptism of Field Marshal, the Duke of 
Wellington, is recorded. Merrion Square is in St. Peter's parish ; it is therefore 


available source of information on the subject ; including Irish Statei 
Papers, Holingshead, Ware, Notes and Queries, Baptismal Kegisters, etc. 

In Gloucestershire, England, there was a family of " Cowley" oi 
" Colley," who took their name from Cowley, a manor place in that shire.' 
Those Cowleys were descended from Harding, the Dane, who was also 
ancestor of the BerMey (of Berkly) family. 

In English Wills the name has been variously written " Cowley," 
" Colley" and " Coll." 

According to a London Visitation, there were Cowleys in London, who 
claimed descent from a Staffordshire family of that name, but of whom we 
can learn nothing. Neither can we learn anything of the Cowleys of 
Rutlandshire, from whom some members of the Mornington family would 
claim descent. But we venture to say that it is mere conjecture to claim for 
the "Cowley" of Mornington family, either an English or an ancient 
Irish origin. 

In the past history of Ireland, since its connexion with England, it 
was unhappily not fashionable, nor Avas it a sure road to promotion in the 
British Service, to be an Irishman^ or to bear an Irish sir name.* 

believed that, as the " Iron Duke's" baptism is recorded in St. Peter's parish register, 
Lady Mornington came from Dangan Castle, in the county Meath, to Morningtoni 
House, in Merrion Square, preparatory to her Lad3'ship's confinement. It was a 
strange coincilence that the two great opponents at the battle of Waterloo, namely, 
Napoleon the First, and Field Marshal the Duke of V/'elliugton, were both minors 
when eich of them first entered on his public career ; and it is worthy of remark that 
each of those personages, in order to gain his point, had his majority established for 
him by false evidence ! Without such evidence, however, at the time, the great 
Duke would jirobably never have become the hero of Waterloo ; nor would the great 
Napoleon perha])s ever have become the Emperor of the French.

Very truly yours,

Commenting on the foregoing letter, the Editor of Notes and Queries wrote : 
" The following extract from the speech of the Earl Beaconsfield, on moving the 
House of Commons to grant the necessary funds for the expense of the Public Funeral 
of the Duke of Wellington, points out other interesting coincidences in the lives of the 
two great warriors : ' The providential superintendence of this world seems seldom 
more manifest than in the dispensation which ordained that the French Emperor and 
Wellesley should be born in the same year ; that in the same year they should have 
embraced the same profession ; and that, natives of distant islands, they should both 
have sought their militaiy education in that illustrious land, which each in his turn 
was destined to subjugate.' The reader may be reminded that Arthur Wellesley 
was sent to the College of Angers, then directed by Pigiiard, a celebrated French 
engineer ; as England, at that time, did not possess any institutions devoted solely to 
military education." 

* Sirname: On this subject the late Duke of Wellington in one of his letters to 
ns says that if his father had called himself by his ancient Irish proper name " Arthur 
Cowley," instead of Arthur Wellesley, he would, in all probability, never have become 
Duhe of Wellington/ The an ti- Irish feeling which then prevailed in England, andh 
which, unhappily, still obtains in some of the Government Departments iu Ireland, 
may have suggested the Iron Duke's saying that— "to be born in a stable does not 
constitute a horse j" meaning thereby that although he was born in Ireland he was not 
an Irishman. 

See the "Wellesley" pedigree, infra, for the assumption of that family name by 
the Mornington "Cowley" family. 


Several persons of the name of " Cowley" were merchants in Bristol, 
n the 14th and 15th centuries ; and, as proved by old Bristol Wills, 
3ristol at that period carried on a brisk trade with Drogheda and Limerick. 
[t is therefore thought by some of the family that it was from Glouces- 
iershire the Mornington branch of the " Cowley" family came to Ireland ; 
jecause Walter Cowley or Colley, who was an ancestor of the Mornington 
'amily, lived in Drogheda, a.d. 1537. 

Commencing with said Walter's father, the following is, according to 
)ur research, the pedigree of the Mornington "Cowley"* or "Colley" family, 
oliown to the great Duke of Wellington,! who d. in 1852.

' Old Colley") married and had two 
sons : 
I. AValter, of Drogheda, who was 
in 1537 "Principal Solicitor" 
(or 'what we would now call 
Solicitor- General) ; " deprived" 
in 1546. He married and had : 
I. Henry Colley, who was Col- 
lector of Drogheda in 1571 ; 
and who is said to have been 

an officer in Capt. Brooke's 
Troop in 1562.

t Rolert Coivley : From our friend, the Rev. A. W. Cornelius Hallen, M.A., the 
worthy Editor of Northern Notes and Queries (Edinbm'gh : David Douglas), we have 
received the following interesting paper : 

" Was Robert Cowley of Irish or of English Blood ? 

1. Nothing is at present known of the parentage or nationality of Robert Cowley, 
who was in 1515 Bailiff of Dublin. The fact that he held this office and afterwards a 
Crown appointment, renders it improbable that he was of pure Irish descent. The list 
of Mayors and Baihffs of Dublin given by Ware contains few if any purely Irish names ; 
and Crown offices at that period were, as a rule, given to men of English descent to 
the exclusion of the Irish. 

2. Nothing is at present known of the wife of Robert Cowley, but an Anthony 
Cowley about the same time married a daughter of Sir William Skeffington ; and, before 
the close of the 16th century, Robert's descendants had in several cases married into 
" English" families. 

N.B. — It may be well to note here that by the marriage of Sir Henry Cowley, 
grandson of Robert, with Catherine Cusack, dau. of Sir Thomas Cusack, the present 
House of " Cowley" can trace a descent from the Wellesleys. It is well known that

and was alive between 1567 and 
1605. Sir Henry married, as his 
second wife, Catherine, dau. of 
Sir Thomas Cusack (who was son 
of Sir John Cusack by Aleson his 
wife, dau. of Sir W. Wellesley, 
A.D. 1500), and had four sons and 
three daughters :

Meere. And the third daughter m.

the first Lord Morningtou took the name oa succeeding to the estates of Garret 
Wellesley, the son of his father's sister ; and derived no Wellesley blood 

3. It seems almost impossible to maintain the pure Irish origin of Robert Cowlej 
in the face of the statement made by Archbishop Loftiis in 1587 : that Sir Henry Cowle' 
(father of his son-in-law George Cowley, and grandson of Robert) was of ' ' Englis 
Parents" (^State Papers). The expression used here must, as elsewhere in the sam 
volume, signify "of English descent," as distinguished from Irish descent. Thi 
Archbishop knew that the documents in which the statement occurs would be lai 
before the Council ; he would not therefore have dared, had he been so disposed, t 
have made such a statement, if untrue, concerning a family then so well known. 

4. An English origin for this family offers itself in a very marked way : Amongt 
the volumes of State Papers published by the Government is a valuable account of tbl 
charter of foundation of Dublin, styled Nova Bristoioa, and its colonization by citizer: 
of Bristol ; lists of early freemen are given, and these are full of well known Gloucesj 
tershire and Somersetshire names, also, of course, met with in ancient Bristol docu 
ments. Bristol was the mercantile metropolis of the west of England, and scions ( 
Gloucestershire knightly families settled there as merchants. John Smith, who w£ 
Steward of the Hundred and Liberty of Berkeley from 1596-1640, left valuable M^ 
notes which have lately been privately printed. In his "Hundred of Berkeley," p. 15; 
he gives a pedigree of eleven generations of the knightly family of Cotoley, de Cowle] 
60. Gloucester, from Harding (ancestor also of the Baronial house of Berkeley) to Eliz£ 
beth de Cowley, who became sole heiress in the 16th century. The Bristol and Uubli 
Cowleys were clearly of this family. 

When the Municipal Records of Dublin for the period between 1300 and 1500 ar 
printed, it will be seen if the old Dublin Cowleys still continued to rank as citizens 
if so, it will probably be possible to jJrove that Robert Cowley was of this stock, an 
therefore rightly described by Archbishop Loftus as " English."

That Garrett, his son, the second Baron, and first Viscount Wellesley, 
Df Dangan Castle, county Meath, was created Earl of Mornington ; 

That Eichard, the eldest son of Garrett, became, in 1799, Marquis 
Wellesley, in the Peerage of Ireland ; that said Richard was succeeded in

family is descended : 

* Born: According to Maxwell's Life of the Diike of Wellington, "Arthur 
Wellesley, etc., was born at Dangan Castle, in the county of Meath, on the 1st of 
May, 1769." To this passage Maxwell appends the following footnote : " Some con- 
troversy has arisen as to the precise time and place of the Dnke's birth ; but we have 
his own authority for the facts, as we have recorded them, conveyed in a reply to 
some inquiries on the subject, addressed to him only a few weeks before his death. A 
letter also from his mother, in answer to the inquiry of a friend, which has lately been 
published in the daUy prints, can have left no room for doubt on the subject." " I 
remember well," says the Editor of Notes a,nd Queries, in the " Montreal Daily Star" 
(Dec, 1885), "that when the Crystal Palace was opened in London, on May 1st, 1851, 
it was distinctly understood that the day was the birthday of the Duke of Wellington, 
and the first anniversary of the birth of Prince Arthur (son of Queen Victoria), to 
whom the Duke had stood sponsor."

Che Arms and pedigree of the " Conroy" family are given in pp. 387- 

$88 of Vol. I. of this Edition. Of this family was Sir Edward Conroy, 

3art., of Arbourfield, Berkshire, England, who died in 1869, in his 60tli 

JT'ear of age. He was the eldest son of Sir John Conroy, who for many 

pars filled a confidential position in the household of the Duchess of 

jient. In 1837 Sir Edward Conroy married Lady Alicia Parsons, daughter 

f Sir Laurence Parsons, Earl of Rosse^ and sister of the late Earl, the 

reat Astronomer. Sir Edward left an only son, John (born August, 

845), who succeeded him in his title and estates. 

When, in the beginning of the seventeenth century, some of the Irish 
?lans submitted to Queen Elizabeth, it was commanded that they should 
[.henceforth not only hold their estates by English instead of Irish law, 
put also, with the view to their still further denationalization, that they 
Should abandon the distinctive prefix to iheir names. From that time 
■orward this family name was spelled Conry or Conroy. 
. In the time of Cromwell, John O'Mulconry or Conry, having taken 
to active part in the war against the Roundheads, lost his estates, which 
ivere confiscated, and he died abroad. In 1657, his eldest son Charles 
)btained a re-grant of a portion of the property in Roscommon, but by 
lis adherence to the cause of James II. he was totally ruined, and was 
killed at the Battle of the Boyne. His grandchildren again settled in the 
jounty Roscommon, and appear to have preserved a small portion of the 
incient property, which the family still hold. Two daughters contracted 
illiances with the families of the Longfields, Lords of Longueville, in the 
)o. Cork, and the Hores of Harpurstown, in the co. Wexford. Sir Edward 
vas a Deputy Lieutenant for the counties of Berkshire and Montgomery- 
shire, and had held different appointments in the Diplomatic Service.

Alexander Conynghali (or Cunningham), a scion of the House of 
Glencairn, Scotland, settled in Ireland, circa A.D. 1600. Possessing a 
love of wild and romantic scenery, the lake, the mountain, and the ocean, 
he resided in Eossgul, in the co. Donegal. Here, with a people, whose 
language was Gaelic, he determined to pass the residue of his life ; and 
here in a castle once dwelt MacSweeney, the Milesian chief of that 
district, but who was then the tenant of a neighbouring cabin, whilst the 
solitary Castle reminded him of the former wealth and power of his 
ancestors. The chief was beloved by the people : they saw in him the i 
representative of an illustrious family, and paid him respect and reverence 
accordingly. Alexander Conyngham married his daughter. Sometimes 
ascending, with his son-in-law, the summit of lofty Mackish, the Chief ; 
would point out the immense territory of which he had been deprived by 
the " Plantation of Ulster/' observing : " That Castle now deserted and 
covered with ivy will endure for ages, and oft recall the days of other years,

O'Callaghan, in his " History of the Irish Brigades," states that th 
family settled in Ireland in the century after the Invasion ; which inclmc. 
us to believe that the " Cookes" in other parts of Ireland are distinct froD 
them, and that the ancestor of this family came to Ireland in the thirteenl 
century with Roger de Bigod, earl of Norfolk, and settled in the count; 
Carlow. To this day, even, the sirname Cooke is very prevalent in Norfo'. ' 
— more so, than in any other part of England or Ireland. 

It was a member of this family who (see Bishop Moran's Monastia 
Eibernicum) founded a Franciscan Abbey in their demesne, now known i 
" Oak Park," near Carlow, at present (1883) the property of Mr. Bruen. 

We have traced this geneaology back to John Cooke, of Carlow, wll 
was an officer in Maxwell's Eegiment of Horse, in the Army of King Jam.. 
the Second. This John Cooke and his brothers took up arms " for fail 
and sovereign," and so warmly espoused the cause of King James, that, : 
grateful recognition of their devotion to him, His Majesty granted to the 
the style and title for ever of The Cookes of the Cavaliers. 

The family estates in Carlow and elsewhere confiscated, because > 
their adherence to the cause of King James, this John Cooke, after tl 
battle of Aughrim, settled in Connaught ; where he and his descendaui 
married into some of the most respectable families of that province. Oi'i 
of his brothers, named Mathew, went to France as an officer in the Irisi 
Eoyal Regiment of Footguards ; and, most likely, was the person allude 
to by O'Callaghan, in his " Irish Brigades," pages 332 and 595, as i 
Mathew Cooke who there died in 1740. 

1. John Cooke, of Carlow, above- 
mentioned: living A.D. 1691. See- 
ing that after the battle of Aughrim 
the cause of King James was lost, 
and wishing to escape the Williamite 
troopers, this John Cooke crossed 
into Mayo and there met and mar- 
ried Mary Lynch, the daughter of 
Dr. Patrick Lynch, of Westport ; 

by her he had issue three sons — 
Charles; 2. Thomas ; 3. Mathei

* Naper : It is worthy of remark that, while Mr. Cooke, of Kilturra, is the repre- 
mtative m the male line of a family attainted by King William the Third, he repre- 
mts the Napers, one of the few Sligo families (outside the Coopersof Markree, and 
lord Collooney), attainted in the Parliament of King James the Second ; a curious 
isclosure, and one which shows that much "Orange and Green" is fused in some Irish 
.milies. One might well look for Patriotism in this family ; for, one of the Ormsbys 
^as Lieut.- Colonel of the Sligo Volunteers in 1782, while the Right Honourable Joshua 
ooper, of Markree, M.P. for the county Sligo, was one of the Delegates to the Irish 
lational Convention of that memorable year ! 

' t Tvhbermrry : This James Naper was the direct descendant of James Napper of 
\ober-an-choire, (anglicised "Tobercurry"), who was attainted in the Dublin Parlia- 
lent of King James the Second, a.d. 1689 ; Celia Naper's mother was a Cooper of 
^al•kree Castle; and Henry Meredith's mother was an Ormsby of Willowbrook. 
jenry Meredith's great-great-grandfather, Kobert Meredith, was (along with John 
asack) M.P. for the borough of Boyle, a.d. 1613. They were the first M.P.'s for that 
)rough. Afterwards, in 1639, Sir Robert King and Richard Wingfield were the 
embers for Boyle. At p. 416 in the Life of Mary Aikenhead, there is honourable 
Mtion made of the Cookes of Sligo, by the talented authoress of that interesting

Settlement (see p. 248 of our " Irish Landed Gentry when Cromwell c;|g 

* Manchester : Henry Sothern and Co. 


to Ireland." Dublin: 1884), appears, under the heading "County of 
Dublin" and " Barony of Balrothery," the name* of Rorbert Corballis, of 
Nutstown, from whom this branch of the " Corballis" family is descended. 
So popular was the family in that district that the Dame Corballis is there 
still identified with several townlands. 

Dispossessed of his estate in Balrothery, Robert Corballis of Nutstown 
settled in the neighbourhood of Tallaght and Saggart, county Dublin ; 
whence John Corballis (b. circa 1729) came to reside in New Street, 
Dublin, and there traded as a Timber Merchant. On his death (in 1805) 
he left to his children some £30,000, realized chiefly in the timber trade : 
a very considerable achievement when we consider that in those days the 
Penal Laws against Roman Catholics were very stringent. This John 
Corballis and his father and mother are buried in Cruagh churchyard, at 
foot of Kilakee mountain. According to Dalton's " History of the County 
Dublin," said John Corballis bequeathed £100 to Saggart poor school, and 
£100 to Harold's Cross poor school, at entrance to what is now Mount 
Jerome Cemetery ; he was also President of the Teresian Society, and in 
Fact a very leading Catholic Merchant in those days : R.I.P. From that 
lohn the following is the descent : 

1. John Corballis (b. chra 1729, 
3. 1805) married and had, besides 
several daughters, two sons : 

I. Richard, of whom presently. 
■ II. James (born 1770-71), who 
(both he and his brother Rich- 
ard, made considerable fortunes 
in the timber trade) m. Miss 
Kenney of the co. Louth, and 

I. James Corballis who married 
Miss Barron, sister of the 
■< late Sir H. Winston Barron,

toard of Charitable Donations and Bequests. In 1816, he took the gold medal for 
cience in Trinity College, Dubhn, and was the first Roman Catholic who did so 
incethe Reformation. To him, in conjunction with Dr. Jellett (Provost of T. C. D.),

CEAWFORD. (No. 1.) 
A Branch of the Earls of Richmond. 

\ Arms : Gu. a fesse erm. 

The house of Crawford (a branch of the Earls of Richmond) is descended 
from the ancient and princely line of Brittany or Bretagne. The leader of 
the famous 6,000 Britons from Aquileia, who retreated through all the 
breadth of Italy and length of France, despite the Emperor Theodosius, 
was Cynan Meriadog, Prince of Powys, cousin of Helen, wife of Mac Sin 
Wledig, the Emperor Maximus, whom he accompanied with his own 
retainers on that fatal expedition to Italy, A.D. 388. This Cynan or 
Conan, " the most ancient Christian King in Europe," married Darerea, 
daughter of Calphurnius, his cousin, and sister of St. Patrick, was con- 
firmed in the sovereignty of Bretagne by Maximus, and died, A.D. 421. 
, From Conan descended the Breton Counts and Dukes terminating in the 
: 15th century in Anne of Brittany, wife of Charles VIII. and Louis XII. of 
': France. Geoffrey, Count of Rennes and Duke of Brittany (ob. 1008), 
married Havoise, daughter of Richard, first Duke of Normandy, by whom 
he had Alan III, Duke of Brittany (ob. 1040), married to Bertha (daughter 
of Alan Cagnart, Count of Cornnaille), whose brother Hoel the V. or Endo 
became Duke of Brittany (ob. 1084) and married Havoise, daughter of 
Alan III., by whom he had Conan III. (ob. 1148), whose daughter Bertha 
married Alan Niger (ob. 1165) fourth Earl of Richmond. Endo or Odo, 
Count of Penthierre, second son of Geoffrey, Duke of Brittany, married 
Agnes, daughter of Alan Cagnart, Count of Cornnaille, and had Alan the 
Red and Alan the Black, both Earls of Richmond, Brian (ancestor of the 
Counts Chateaubriand), Bardolph of Ravenswath (progenitor of the families 
of Aslceio. Clihurn, and Fitzhugh), to whom " Askew was given by his brother 
Alan, Earl of Richmond, after 1086." (See Gale and Whittaker's Hist, o 
Richmond). Geoffrey Botterel first, and Etienne, Count of Penthierre 
(ob. 1138), who by Harvise, heiress of the Count de Guincamp, had Alan 
Niger (or " The Savage"), ob. 1165, fourth Earl of Richmond, who married 
in 1137 Bertha, daughter of Conan IV. (le Gros), Duke of Brittany, and 
had by her Conan V. (le Petit, ob. 1171), Brian (progenitor of the Lords 
of Bedale), Guy (ancestor of the house of LeStrange), and Reginald, from 
whom descended the Craufords of Crawford. The family of La Zouche of 
Ashby are also admitted by genealogists to be descended from the Earls 
of Brittany, but how, is not yet precisely known, as Burke acknowledges 
that " the early generations of the Earls of Richmond are very con-

This family is descended from Reginald, third son of Alan Mger^ or Alan 
" the Black," the fourth Earl of Richmond, mentioned in " Crawford" 
(No. 1) : 

Reginald de Crawford, heritable 
Sheriff of the shire of Ayr, which 
office was long held by his posterity. 
He married, circa, 1200, Margaret, 
daughter and heiress of James de 
Loudoun, who received a charter 
of the baronies of Loudoun, county 
Ayr (which afterwards gave the 
title of Earl to its possessors), and 
he became the first Vice-Comes of 
the county. His son :

doun. He was witness to a charter, 
A.D. 1226, and dying, 1246, was 
succeeded by his son :

Vice-Comes of Ayr. He died, 1288, 
and left by his wife Alicia, a son, 
Reginald, and a daughter, Margaret, 
"who m. Sir Malcolm Wallace, laird 
of Ellerslie, and was mother of the 
immortal patriot and upholder of 
the freedom of Scotland, Sir 
William Wallace. His son : 

Sir Reginald de Crawford, of 
Loudoun, also a distinguished 
patriot, was treacherously murdered 
at a banquet in 1297, leaving a son 
Reginald, his successor in Loudoun, 
whose only daughter, Susan Craw- 
ford, heiress of Loudoun, married 
Sir Duncan Campbell, knight, of 
Red Castle. From this marriage 
descended the Earls of Loudoun. 
The male line was carried on by : 

Sir John Crawfurd, eldest son of 
Hugh Crawfurd of Loudoun (temp. 
Alex. XL). He possessed part of 
the barony of Crawford, and gave 
it the name of " Crawfurd- John."

son, John Lindsay Crawford, of 
Kilburnie, was created Yiscount 
Gurnock in 1703.) Capt. Thomas 
Crawford was commander of the 
young King's forces, and on many 
occasions distinguished himself in 
battle. On the 2nd April, 1572, he 
took the castle of Dunbarton, then 
heid by Lord Fleming, and deemed 
impregnable. The elder branches 
of the family still use the crest 
Dunbarton Castle, with the motto 
Ex pugnavi, as a distinction com- 
memorating this event. He mar.

A.CCORDING to Smith's History of Kerry, p. 54, the Irish family of Crosby is 
a, branch of the English family of that name; but, according to O'Donovan 
and other authorities, the family is of Irish origin. These say that the 
&rst Crosby of note was son of the " Chiefe Rhymor of O'Moore,* who 
was named Patrick MacCrossan, ' dexterously anglicised' Crosby and 
Urosbie." This Patrick MacCrossan became interpreter to the English in 
Ereland, in the reign of Queen Elizabeth ; and finally an underling of the 
G-overnment, in Dublin. He is said to have thus obtained large estates in 
Kerry, and so founded the family. His brother, Avho was named John, 
became Bishop of Ardfert, whose grandson, Sir Thomas Crosby, Knight, 
whose name is at the head of this pedigree, was a Captain in Carroll's 
Dragoons, in the service of King James II. 

Archdeacon Rowan says : " The present Crosbie family in Ireland 
trace their origin to two brothers, Patrick and John. The line of Patrick 
ended with his son Sir Piers Crosbie, one of the victims of the arbitrary 
Strafford {temp. King Charles I.). John became a clergyman, and in 1600 
was advanced to the See of Ardfert and Aghadoe. Bishop Crosbie had a 
numerous family, and Captain Sir Thomas Crosbie was the son of the 
Bishop's second son Colonel David Crosbie, a stout soldier, who is described 
as a ' known enemy to the Confederate Catholics.' He was recognised by 
Cromwell as Governor of Kerry, and all his estates guaranteed to him ; 
and these still remain in the family, notwithstanding the attainder of Sir 
rhomas Crosby. In his case, to a certain extent at least, loyalty predomi- 
aated over Party, and he became a Captain in Carroll's Dragoons, in the 
service of his legitimate Sovereign, James II." 

* 0^ Moore : After the subjugation of Leix by the English, some of the " O'Moore" 
family were transplanted to Kerry, where also by a curious coincidence we find was 
located the Crosbie family. ' ' To sketch the history and generation of the Tories (or 
Rapparees) of Ireland," says Prendergast in his Ireland from the Restoration to the 
Revolution, 1660 to 1690. (London : Longmans, Green, and Co., 1887), " one ought to 
go up to the replantation of Ireland in the reign of Philip and Mary, in the King's and 
Queen's Counties. It was in mercy to the O'Moores, and O'Connors (Faley), and five 
other septs or stocks — the Kellys, the Lalors, the Dorans, the MacEvoys, and the 
Doolans — that Sir Arthur Chichester, in 1608, transplanted the remains of them to 
Munster, after eighteen rebellions in forty years, lest the ' White Moores' (as he called 
them) should be utterly extirpated. By this nickname of the White Moors, Sir 
Arthur alluded to the gross breach of faith of the King of Spain in driving out the 
Moors of Andalusia, in 1609, contrary to the treaty made with the remnant of that 
race after their rebellion in a former reign ; the consequence being that, for 230 years 
after, these Moors became the pirates of Algiers, and SaUee Rovers, in hatred of the 
injustice of the Christians."

From the DuUin University Magazine (of September, 1854), and Bathmore 
and its Traditions (Trim : Moore, 1880), we learn that, in the early part of 
the fifteenth century, the Lord of Eathmore was Sir Christopher Cruys 
(now Cruise), who had, besides, many large possessions, amongst them the 
castles and estates of Cruisetown and Moydorragh, lying near each other 
in the barony of Morgallion, in the county Meath. Of Sir Christopher 
and his family a singular history is orally preserved among the descen- 
dants of the rural denizens of Rathmore in the olden time. 

According to the tradition, Sir Christopher Cruys lived to a mature 

age unmarried ; his nephews, therefore, entertained hopes of succeeding 
to all his large property ; but late in life the good knight, losing his taste 
for celibacy, married a lady with whose beauty and amiable disposition he 
had been captivated. This marriage enraged his kinsmen, some of whom 
resided at Robertstown and others at Brittas, seats in the vicinity of 
Cruisetown. They testified peculiar hostility to Lady Cruys, whose con- 
duct in all respects was most exemplary, and who lived in perfect harmony 
with her husband. In due time she gave promise of presenting Sir 
Christopher with a direct heir ; and the disappointed expectants wickedly 
determined on destroying both the knight and the lady before the birth 
of the child. 

It happened that Sir Christopher and his wife went to spend some 
days at the Castle of Cruisetown, which is no longer extant, but it was 
then a strong edifice, and stood beside an artificial mound near the now 
ruined church,* and in view of a small lake. One fine sunny day Sir 
Christopher induced his lady, for the sake of exercise, to walk 'with 
him to Moydorragh. Unfortunately they took no attendant ; for, 
thou oh well aware that the kinsmen were much displeased at their 
uncle's marriage, the latter had no suspicion of the extent of their 
malevolence. The movements of the knight and the lady had, how- 
ever, been watched by spies ; and, on their return from Moydorragh, 
an ambush was set for them near the Castle of Cruisetown. Just as they 
came in sight of the castle, Lady Cruys perceiving the brightness of the 
day to be suddenly overcast by some peculiar kind of obscurity, looked 
up, and saw in the sky a terrific phenomenon, like the well-defined and 
dark figure of a giant, looking down upon them with a fiend-like aspect. 
Alarmed at such an unusual appearance, a nervous apprehension seized 
her mind, and she exclaimed in Irish (then the vernacular), " Oh, Sir 
Christopher ! look up ! see ! some dreadful danger threatens us. That 
sign is a warning ; let us hurry home — haste ! haste !" 

* In this dilapidated church is a sculptured and emblazoned tomb of a branch of 
the Cruyses of a later date than the epoch of the story, being of the latter part of the 
seventeenth century. It commemorates Walter and Elizabeth Cruys, and their son 
Patrick, and his wife, Catherine Dalton. The two latter are also commemorated by a 
rude stone cross in the churchyard. 


Sir Christopher tried to smile away her fears as mere superstition, 
telling her that the apparition was only formed by a cloud, though he must 
' own it was a singular one; but, even supposing it supernatural, why should 
they believe it directed to them rather than to any other person in the 
\ neighbourhood 1 But Lady Cruys replied, "It is ! it is, indeed, for us. See ! 
the dark shadow of the figure has fallen upon us, cold and black. Hasten 
home ! hasten home !" 

As she was hurrying her husband forward, several armed men, led by 

his relatives, sprang from a thicket, and rushed towards them. The 

knight was armed with the small sword commonly worn. He drew it; 

and setting his back to a tree, defended himself as well as he could from 

] the murderous attack, and said to his wife, " Run now ! run for life — for 

\my life as well as your own. On to the castle and send me help." Lady 

: Cruys fled with the speed of one who did run for life, but two of the 

assailants sprang after her with drawn swords. She had, however, a few 

paces' advantage, which she kept, for terror winged her feet. Her cries, 

as she approached the castle had been heard, and the gate was opened at 

the instant she reached it — one moment longer of delay had been fatal, 

for the pursuers were then so near (says tradition), that just as the gate 

closed on the fugitive, one of them, making a blow at her, cut oflF a part 

of her mantle that streamed behind. 

The poor breathless lady was scarcely able to give her orders to the 
domestics ; but they quickly comprehended her ; and, hurrying out at a 
postern, they sped to their master, whom they found left quite alone 
under the tree that had supported him, pierced with wounds, and covered 
with blood, but still alive, and in possession of his faculties. 

They stanched the blood, and conveyed him gently to the castle. But 
he was mortally wounded ; and only lived long enough to receive the rites 
of his Church, to give some directions, and bid a tender farewell to his 
disconsolate wife, in whose arms he expired. 

The new-made widow felt that her husband's life was not the only 
sacrifice sought ; she knew that her own, and that of the unborn heir were 
at stake, and she resolved to do her utmost to save both, and defeat the 
cupidity of her enemies. To this end she determined on flying to England 
for safety ; and, securing the title-deeds of Sir Christopher's property, 
and as much of the family plate as she could. All the latter that was at 
Cruisetown she placed in a strong oak chest, with heavy stones in the 
bottom, and had it conveyed secretly by night out of the castle, and sunk 
in the neighbouring lake. To save the plate and papers at Rathmore was 
her next object ; to attain which she must leave Cruisetown by stratagem, 
lest she should be intercepted. She kept the castle closely barred from 
all intruders, and despatched a messenger to Rathmore, requiring the 
attendance of the domestics at the funeral of their late master in Cruise- 
town Church. She then caused it to be reported that she was dangerously 
ill from agitation and over-exertion. 

By torchlight the relatives and tenants of Sir Christopher Cruys 
crowded the small church to witness the obsequies of the murdered man, 
whose widow was then announced to be dead. While their attention was 
thus engaged, another funeral train^ composed of trusty men of Rathmore, 
issued silently from the postern, bearing a coffin covered with a pall, but 



pierced throughout with holes to admit air to the poor trembling mourner,' 
who lay within as a corpse. To any who questioned them on their road they^ 
replied, that they were conveying the remains of Lady Cruys to Eath-i 
more, as she could not be interred with her deceased husband on accounti 
of the family feuds. 

Gently, but speedily, was the journey performed ; the coffin was takent 
into the Castle of Kathmore, and its faint and cramped inmate lifted out, 
and tended by eager hands. But no time was to be lost — scarcely was 
she recovered from her fatigues, when she hastily selected the principal 
parchments, and packed them for conveyance ; then collecting the plate, 
she saw it nailed closely down in the coffin, which was carried into thS' 
Church of St. Lawrence, and laid in a ready-prepared grave, amid the 
tears of those who believed it to contain the corpse of their beloved lady. 

Day had not yet dawned when Lady Cruys, closely disguised, stole 
away from Rathmore, accompanied by one female domestic, and bearing 
with her the title-deeds, her jewels, and a sum of money. She reached 
Dublin, and embarked on board a vessel bound for London, where she 
arrived in safety. And there she gave birth to a daughter, whom shei 
named Mary Anne ; and immediately notified, in due form, the facts of her 
own existence, and the birth of her child, to the kinsmen of Sir Christopher, 
and asserted the right of his posthumous heiress. But strong in the( 
possession of the property they had usurped, they laughed to scorn the* 
claims of a helpless widow and infant in another country. 

Lady Cruys endeavoured to obtain redress from the English courts of 
law ; but her resources were soon exhausted, and her exertions were barred 
by poverty. Years elapsed ; the young girl grew up, the heiress of large 
estates, but inured to an inheritance of unmitigated want and care. 
Mother and daughter were reduced to so low an ebb, that they were com 
pelled to support themselves by the labour of their hands. But Lady 
Cruys had instructed Mary from childhood in all her rights, teaching her 
the names and descriptions of the several portions of her estates ; and the', 
dispossessed heiress had amused herself at her toils by composing on the 
subject of her inheritance a simple song in Irish, in which language she 
and her mother always conversed as their native tongue. 

At the period to which the narrative has now reached, Sir Thomas^ 
Plunket, of Killeen (county Meath), happened to be in London. He was 
the third son of Christopher Plunket,* first Baron of Killeen. Sir Thomas: 
belonged to the legal profession, and when in London frequented thei 
Temple. One day, when in the Temple Gardens, and leaning over the 
parapet that divided them from the strand of the Thames, he observed a 
young and lovely girl, in poor attire, but with an air of gentle blood, 
washing clothes in the river, and then spreading them on a large stone. 
She was singing to a plaintive air a song, the words of which he found to 
be Irish. ^ He listened with surprise and attention, and soon discovered 
that the singer was describing her own circumstances. 

This is no fiction. A portion of the song has been preserved, solely by 
oral tradition, for upwards of 400 years. We have collected it in frag- 
ments from among the Eathmore peasantry, in its native Irish, from which 

* He obtained the lands of Killeen by marriage with the heiress, Genet Cusack. 


we have made the following translation, adhering as closely as we could 
to the metre of the original. As a poetical composition this song has no 
merit ; but the descriptive epithets attached to the different nkmes are 
even still applicable. Of the places mentioned in it many are recorded in 
patents, inquisitions, etc., as being held along with the Manor of Rathmore 
by the descendants of Mary Grays. 

From the original Irish. 

All ! blessed Mary ! hear my sighing, 
Oq this cold stone mean labours plying ; 
Yet Rathmore's heiress might I name me, 
And broad lands rich and many claim me. 

Gilstown, Rathbeg, names known from childhood; 
Fair Johnstown, hard by bog and wild wood j 
Ra-taaffe (Blackwater near it floweth), 
And Harton, where the white wheat groweth.

Teltown, where race the coursers sprightly ; 
Balreask, abundant dairies showing, 
Full pails and churns each day bestowing.

Old Oristown to mind arises ; 
Caultown, near bogs, black turf providing ; 
Eathconny, in its "Baron" priding. 

The Twelve Poles, Armabregia, follow ; 
Kilmainham, of the woody hollow ; 
Cruisetown, with lake by sunbeams greeted ; 
Moydorragh gay, 'mid fair roads seated. 

Still could I speak of townlands many ; 
Three score along the banks of Nanny ; 
Twelve by the Boyne, if it were pleasure 
To dwell on lost and plundered treasure.* 

Such was the'song of the dispossessed heiress of Rathmore, sung on English 
ground, in the fifteenth century ; and, by a singular coincidence, brought 
round in the revolutions of time, the same song was again sung, on English 
ground, under similar circumstances, in the seventeenth century, by a 
second unfortunate heiress of Rathmore, a lineal descendant of Mary 
Cruys. But let us not anticipate. 

Sir Thomas Plunket, being himself a native of Heath, was well 
acquainted with the story of the Cruys family, and with the names of the 
principal lands, and at once guessed that the young singer must be the 
lost heiress. He courteously addressed her in Irish (thus conciliating her 

* Of the places named in the song, Gilstown and Rathconny are near Rathmore ; 
the allusion to the "Baron" of Rathconny is forgotten. Rataaffe, Bakeask, Caul- 
town, and Ballycred (now Knightstown), are in the vicinity of Navan, but not all in 
the same direction. Rathbeg, near Trim ; Johnstown, near Clonmellon (Barony of 
Fore), Near Kells are Oristown, Kilskier, and Teltown ; the latter, the ancient Tailtean, 
was famous for horse-races from the reigns of the pagan kings for many centuries,

confidence at the outset), told his name, intimated his suspicion of her 
real rank, and offered his services. Poor Mary, delighted with this gleam 
of hope, brought him to the humble dwelHng of her mother, who, eager 
to interest in her cause a man of his importance, showed him all her 
parchments, and gave him proofs of the identity of her daughter as heiress 
of Sir Christopher Cruy?. Sir Thomas undertook to exert himself for the 
restitution of the estates ; stipulating, however, that if his efforts proved 
successful, he should be rewarded with the (no longer empty) hand of his 
fair client. It were to be wished that he had wooed in a less business-like 
and gallant manner ; but he was past the heyday of youth, and was a 

He conducted the cause with so much ability, that he brought it to 
triumphant issue, and married the enriched heiress. He attained the 
dignity of Lord Chief Justice of the King's Bench, in Ireland ; and he 
and his lady fixed their residence at the Castle of Rathmore, which thence- 
forward became the family seat of their descendants, known as the 
Plunkets of Rathmore. Doubtless, the plate submerged at Cruisetown, 
and buried at Rathmore, soon saw the light again, after the restoration of 
the right owner. A memorial of a visit (jDerhaps the bridal visit) of Mary 
and her husband to the seat of Lord Killeen (ancestor of the Earl of 
Pingal), the father of Sir Thomas, is still extant in the demesne of 
Killeen.* It is the base of a cross, sculptured with ecclesiastical figures, 
bearing no date, but inscribed with the names of — 

®;i^oma$ f lunket. 
glarg Crags. 

It was the amusement of Lady Plunket, after her happy settlement at 
Rathmore, to sing for her friends and family the simple Irish song that had 
attracted the attention of Sir Thomas, and had been (under Providence) 
the means of her good fortune. Thus it became popular in the neighbour- 
hood, and was long preserved in memory, though now extant but in frag- 
ments, never before (we have reason to believe) committed to writing. 

Sir Thomas died in 1471. In the churchyard of Athboy is a sculptured 
tomb, without date or inscription, but bearing the effigies of a knight and 
lady : it is said to be the monument of Sir Thomas Plunket, and his wife, 
Mary Cruys. They were the parents of two sons and three daughters : 
of the latter, the eldest, Ismay, marrying William Wellesley (or Wesley, 
as then spelled), has the high, though posthumous, honour of being a 
direct ancestress of the great Duke of Wellington, who was tenth in 
descent from her, and eleventh from Mary Cruys, whose story derives an 
additional interest from her illustrious descendant.! 

* Killeen Castle, the seat of the earls of Fingal, was f-ouuded by Hugh de Lacy, 
in 1180. It is two and a-half miles from Dunshaughlin. 

t The pedigree runs thus: Ismay Plunket and William 'Wellesley, of Dangan, 
Meath, had a daughter, Alison, who married John Cusack, of Cussington, and had a 
son, Sir Thomas Cusack, Lord Chancellor of Ireland, whose daughter, Catherine, 
married Sir Henry CoUey, of Castlecarbury ; and their son, Sir Henry, marrying 
Anne, daughter of Adam Loftus, Archbishoij of Dublin, had a son, Sir Henry, whose 
son, Dudley, left a son, Heury, whose son, Richard, took the name of Wellesley, by 
the will of his cousin William Wellesley, and had a son, Garrett, Earl of Mornington,. 
father of the great Duke of Wellington.— See the " Wellesley" pedigree, infra.

There is no certain account of the origin of this family, other than that 
■which we have by tradition, namely: That Sir Waltero de Aliton, aij 
Frenchman, aspiring to gain the affections of his king's daughter (which i 
he obtained), so incurred the displeasure of her father, that, to avoid . 
the fnry of an incensed Monarch, Sir Waltero, with his lady, privately, , 
retired into Ireland, which was then involved in great wars between the ■ 
ancient natives and their invading English enemies ; where, having 
signalized his great valour and good conduct on many occasions on the 
invader's side, he was soon advanced to considerable offices and employ- 
ments, and made governor of the borders of Meath, then the limits of the 
English conquests. In that part of the kingdom of Meath, now called 
" Westmeath," Sir Waltero acquired great estates and possessions, which 
his posterity enjoyed until they were dispossessed by the Usurper Crom- 
well. This Sir Waltero was the ancestor of Dalton, 

Sir Waltero de Aliton, so far as we can find, had but one son, who 
was named Philip De Aliton, from whose three sons — 1. Nicholas, 2. 
Philip the Younger, and 3. John, the families of — 1. Dalton, 2. Daton and 
Datoon, and 3. Delaton, are respectively descended. 

1. Sir Waltero de Aliton.

and 2. Philip, who was the ancestor

This family derive their origin from the Emperor Charlemagne (or Charles 
the Great), and were of great eminence in France. David de Arcie 
assumed this surname from " Castle de Arcie," his chief seat, situate 
within thirty miles of Paris ; and was the ancestor of De Arcie modernized 
UArcy.^ The Lish O'DorchaidJie (see the " Darcy" pedigree, p. 401, Yol. L) 
is the origin of Daraj and Dorcy ; some of whom have changed the name 
to JD^Arcy.

Joan, dau. of Rickard de Burgo, the 
Red Earl of Ulster. From this

of Ireland.

days ; leaving no more issue (that 
we can find) than one son, named 

3. Thomas : son of Christopher. 

4. Sir Richard : his son ; was 
a powerful man in France, and 
joined William, Duke of Normandy, 
in his conquest of England, where, 
after he was settled, William gave 
large possessions to the said Sir 

5. Oliver : his son. 

* D'Arcy : Of this family was Sir John D'Arcy, Knt., one of the heroes of Cressy, 
who was Constable of Trim Castle from 1326 to 1334. His son William (b. 1330) was 
seated at Flatten, county Meath, ^vhere his descendants resided for many generations, 
until Nicholas D'Arcy, a Captain in the Army of King James II., was attainted and 
his estates forfeited. Some portions of them were subsequently regranted to his son 
and heir George D'Arcy of Duumoe, county Meath. Cornet JSTicholas D'Arcy, who 
appears to have been the Captain Nicholas D'Arcy here mentioned, fought through the 
Jacobite war ; was wounded at Derry ; and shortly before the Battle of the Boyne, 
being in command of one hundred and sixty men at Killeshandra, was compelled to 
surr^ider to Colonel Wolseley. He was attainted in 1691 with his son George. 

Patrick D'Arcy of Kiltulla was the seventh son of James " Reveagh" D'Arcy 
(born in 1598), who was Governor of Galway and Vice-President of Connaught in the 
reign of Queen Elizabeth. He was a member of the Parliament assembled in Dublin 
m 1540 ; a member of the Supreme Council of the Confederate Catholics in 1642-1647 ; 
died in Dublin in 1668 ; and was buried at Kilconnell, near Aughrim.

Of Owlpen Manor, County Gloucester. 


Arms : Sa. three beacons with ladders fired gu. Crest : A bugle horn or, stringe^ 
sa. Motto : Vigilo et spero. 

In the Harleian MS., numbered 1191, this family pedigree commenced 
with Timon, Symon, or Simon, who lived temp. King Henry IV. Tha, 
Simon left a son Nicholas, commencing with whom. Holme, ia the Har. 
Collection numbered 2121, gives Dant throughout. And Nicholas left tw 
sons — 1. Nicholas, 2. John. 

In Harl. MS., 2230, the arms of the family are the same as in MS 
1191 ; viz., a chough's head and an owl. 

The Harl. MS. 6174 is similar to MS. 1191. In the Harl. MS. 61 8£ 
the pedigree begins with " Thomas Daunte of Olepen," husband of Alice, 
daughter of William Throgmorton. 

Berry gives the following in his list of arms : Daunt — Sa. three bea 
cons, with ladders, or, fired gu. 

In Edmondson's list we find Dauntre or Daivntre : Sa. three beacons 
fired or, the flames proper ; and Dauntre : Gloucester or, a chev. in th 
midst of three birds' heads, sa. beaked gu. 

And in Guillim we find : " He beareth sable three beacons fired or, tb 
flames proper, by the name of Dauntre."f 

According to Eudder, who wrote in 1779, the following is the pedigrei 
of the " Daunt" J family, which Rudder states was authenticated by Peer 
Manderit, Windsor herald of armsj and by William Hawkins, Ulste 
King-at-arms of all Ireland. 

1. Simon Daunt. 

2. Nicholas : his son ; married 
Alice, dau. of William de Tracy.§ 

3. Nicholas : their son ; livin 
24 Henry VI. ; mar. Alice, daugh 
ter and heir of Walter Jurden 

* Alice : This Alice Throgmorton was sister to the wife of Sir Walter Raleigh. 

t Dauntre : In Stowe's Chronicle of England, deposited in the Library of th< 
British Museum, London, Edition A.D. 1615, page 263, it is stated: "Battaile o| 
Poitiers (19 September, 1356) . • . The next day after the battle, all the prisoneri 
were numbered ; to wit, the French King, also Phillip, his sonne, the Archbishop o.' 
Lenon, . , the Earle Daunter, . . . Edward Prince of Wales brought all th« 
prisoners and captives of them that kept them, and carried them with him t(< 
Bordeaux, there to remain in safe custodie, during his abode there. The Princ(< 
returned to England with the French King and many other prisoners." . . : 

From the fact of an Earl Daunter (presumably, the head of this family) having 
espoused the cause of the French King, at the Battle of Poictiers (1356) it may 
reasonably be assumed that the family had fiefs in France, as well as in England : i 
fact not uncommon in the Anglo-Norman families. 

+ Daunt : It is considered that some members of the Dent family have, in Ireland 
assumed the name " Daunt." 

§ Tracy : It is asserted that this Norman Noble was a descendant of one of tht 
assassins of St. Thomas a Becket, Archbishop of Canterbury, tern}). King Henry II. 
and that the said William de Tracy is in the male line, represented by the Lore 


md left two sons — 1. Nicholas, 
2. John. 

4. John : the second son of Nich- 
olas ; married Anne, dau. of Sir 

(Robert Stowell, of Somersetshire, 
by whom he had three sons — 1. 
John, 2. Thomas, 3. Stephen, and 
three daughters — Margaret, Maude, 
'and Alice. He was attached to the 
Lancastrian family, and of consider- 
able power in his time ; as may be 
gathered from the subjoined letter* 
to him by the then Prince of Wales. 

5. John : son and heir of John ; 
mar. Margery, the daughter and 
heiress of Robert OuIepen,t in 
whose right he became seized of 
this manor.| They had issue five 
sons — 1. Christopher, 2. John, 3. 
George, 4. Robert, 5. William, and 
two daughters, Jane and Alice. 

6. Christopher : son of John ; 
mar. Anne, dau. of Giles Basset, of 
Tewley, by whom he had three sons 

—1. Thomas, 2. William, 3. Giles, 
and one daughter. Faith. 

7. Thomas : the eldest son of 
Christopher ; m. Alice, dau. of Wil- 
liam Throgmorton, of Tortworth, and 
had issue five sons — 1. Henry, 2. 
Thomas, 3. Giles, 4. William, 5. 
John, and four daughters — Mary, 
Elizabeth, Joyce, and Florence. 

8. Henry : the eldest son of 
Thomas ; m. Dorothy, dau. of Giles 
Hussey, of Motcombe, in Somerset- 
shire ; and left Frances, his only 
daughter and heiress, married to 
J. Bridgman, of Nimpsfield. Upon 
the death of Henry, without male 
issue, his brother Thomas (the 
second son of Thomas) succeeded 
to this manor and estate. He mar- 
ried Mary, dau. of Brian Jones, of 
Glamorganshire, by whom he had 
Thomas, his only son and heir, and 
one daughter, Margaret. 

9. Thomas : only son of Thomas; 

* Letter : In the year 1471, John, No. 4 on the foregoing stem, received the 
following letter written by Edward Prince of Wales, son of King Henry the Sixth :

t Oulepen : This family was evidently of Saxon origin. It therefore seems strange 
that the Yorkists left the "Oulepen" manor to this John Daunt, who was a partizan 
of the House of Lancaster. But Thierry, in bis History of the Norman Conquest, says 
that the Saxon proprietors were left undisturbed by the Normans in a district which 
comprised part of the actual Gloucestershire. It may interest the antiquarian to know 
that, at the Oulepen manor, the same furniture exists there now that existed when 
Queen Margaret, wife of King Henry VI., was the guest of the aforesaid John Daunt, 
the night preceding the Battle of Tewksbury. The building is of stone; the outer 
walls being about six feet thick ; and the waiuscottiug of the apartments richly carved. 
It is a strange fact that several Lancastrian familes, of whom that of Daunt was one, 
have changed their old armorial bearings for the Cornish choughs. 

% Manor : In England, " lords of the manor" were not barons of Parliament, or 
peers ; but merely barones minor es.

of the county of Chester, and had 
issue four sons — 1. Thomas, 2.

four daughters, Frances, Catherine,

10. Thomas : the eldest son and 
heir of Thomas ; m. Ehzabeth, dau. 
of Sir Gabriel Lowe, of Newark, in 
the parish of Ogle worth, and left 
issue his only daughter and heiress, 
who was married to Thomas Webb, 

of Stone, in the county of , 

and died in childbed without issue, 
whereupon George, the youngest 
brother of Thomas, and next male 
heir of the family, succeeded to this 
manor and estate. This George 
married, first, Martha, daughter of 
Major Henry Turner, of Bandon 
Bridge, in the county of Cork, in 
Ireland ; and secondly, Anne, dau. 

of Thomas Knolles, of Killeheagh,! 
in the county Cork, and by her hadi 
issue five sons — 1. Thomas, 2,t 
George, 3. Henry, 4, Achilles, 5J 
John, and one daughter, Martha. 

11. Thomas : eldest son of 
George, succeeded to the manor ofi 
Olepen, and married Ehzabethy; 
dau. of George Singe alias Milling- 
ton, of Bandon Bridge, clerk. They 
had issue two sons (twins) — Thomas 
and Achilles, born in 1702 ; and! 
four daughters, Martha, Hannah,, 
Elizabeth, and Mildred. 

12. Thomas Daunt: elder son, 
and heir of Thomas and his wife] 
Elizabeth; was, in 1779, the lord! 
of the manor of Olepen. (This 
Thomas Daunt, who died in 1804, 
left an only daughter and heir who, 
in 1807, was lady of this manor). 

According to Fosbrooke, who wrote in 1807 : 

" Owlpen, Wolpen, Ulepenne . . . Robert de Olepen, temp. Edward IV., 
left Margaret, dau. and heir, wife of John Daunt, father of Christopher, who held this 
manor and messuages 2 cott 56 acres in Clowe, and 4 mess in Wotton. Christopher 
was father of Thomas, father of Henry and Thomas ; which Henry having issue Giles 
who died before his father s.p., and Frances, wife of Sir John Bridgman, the latter I 
pretended claim, but was ousted through entails by the male heir, The Daunt, hen 
uncle. Rudder has given a pedigree of this family, which, as it commences only from 
24 Henry VI. (from whose son, the unfortunate Edward, Prince of Wales, the family, 
received a letter, still preserved by them and printed in Rudder), I shall carry backi 
to Edward I. and 11. The family were settled in Wotton parish, of which was Thomas 
Daunt, temp. Edward II., after whom was Nicholas, father of John and Nicholas, , 
which John married the heir of Oalepeune ; John and Simon. John, son of Simon, 
who lived temp. H. VII., and others were younger brothers, but a fine was levied la i 
Mich, term 21 Hen. VI., of tenements in Wotton, Wottonforren, and Bradley, and the i 
Wotton estates devolved to the first Nicholas of Wotton. . . . The capital mes- ■ 
siiage lies in Owlpen, but most of the lands are in Nenrington Bagpath, which i 
accounts for the benefice being a chapelry of that rectoi'y. Thomas Daunt, Esq., who < 
died in 1S04, left an only daughter and heir, now (1807), lady of this manor. .... 
The manor is held of Lord Berkeley, by suit of his hundred court, and the rent of 5.9. 
paid to Wottonforren." 

The various branches of the family of Daunt, now existing in Ireland, 
derive their origin from the ancient race of that name, long seated la 
Gloucestershire ; where the principal stem possessed the manor of Owlpen 
for several centuries. Many writers on heraldry identify the name of 
" Daunt" with that of Dauntre, which occurs in the " Roll of Battle 
Abbey." Glover and others assign to "Daunt," of Gloucestershire, the 
arms which Gwillyn assigns to " Dauntre," viz. — sable, three beacons with 
ladders, or, fired gules. In a very old MS. in Ulster's office, these arms are 
also appropriated to Daunt of Gloucestershire. 


The first settlement of the "Daunts" in Ireland appears to have been 
in the reign of Elizabeth ; when Thomas Daunt (second son of Thomas 
Daunt of Owlpen, by his wife, Alice Throckmorton of Tortworth), became 
the lessee of Tracton Abbey, near Kinsale ; and, in 1595, purchased the 
estate of Gurtigrenane from Sir Warham St. Ledger. This Thomas 
became lord of the manor of Owlpen, on the death of his elder brother 
Henry, without issue male, in 1608. From him descended Mary Daunt, 
sole daughter and heiress of the oldest line. She married Thomas 
Anthony Stoughton, of Kerry; and died in 1868, being succeeded in 
Owlpen and Gurtygrenane by her son, Thomas Anthony Stoughton, of 
Owlpen (living in 1880), who served as High Sheriff of Gloucestershire, 
in 1873. 

James Daunt, of Tracton Abbey (of which place he was joint-lessee 
with Thomas of Owlpen), was High Sheriff of the county Cork, in 1627 ; 
Thomas Daunt, of Gurtygrenane, was High Sheriff in 1645; and Samuel 
Daunt, of Knocknasillagh, was High Sheriff in 1749. 

In Sir Bernard Burke's Landed Gentry, the genealogical seniority of 
the existing lines of "Daunt" is stated as follows: I. The Owlpen line 
now merged in the family of Stoughton. 11. That of Fahalea, Carrigaline 
Cork, whose proprietor, Henry Daunt, became representative-general on 
the death of the late Mrs. Stoughton. This Henry Daunt had two first 
cousins — 1. Thomas Townsend Daunt, of Stoke-Damerel, Davenport, 
England, Barrister-at-Law, born 31st Dec, 1816 ; 2. Rev. E. S. T. Daunt, 
vicar of St. Stephen's, Launceston, Cornwall, who had issue : both cousins 
living in 1880, and the only surviving sons of George Digby Daunt, late 
Lieutenant 97th or Queen's Own, who was born Oct., 1783, and died Jan. ' 
1861, and who Avas the second son of Thomas Daunt, of Fahalea, Glinny, 
etc. The only child of Thomas Townshend Daunt, of Davenport, here 
mentioned, is George Digby Daunt, born 1846, and, in 1880, in the Eoyal 
Navy. III. The family of Mrs. George Daunt, of Newborou^h. IV. 
That of the late George Daunt, of Silverne, whose nephew. Dr. Huno'er- 
ford, now (1880) owns that property. V. That of the late Rev. Achilles 
Daunt, B.D,, of Tracton Abbey, Dean of Cork. VI. That of William 
Joseph O'Neill-Daunt, of Kilcascan Castle, Ballyneen, living in 1887. 
This William Joseph O'N. Daunt has a first cousin, Richard Gumbleton 
Daunt, M.D., Edinburgh, who is a naturalized Brazilian, living (in 1887) 
in Campinas, San Paulo, Brazil, and has occupied many important j)ublic 
offices there ; the descent from whom is as follows : 

I. Richard Gumbleton Daunt, 
M.D., mar., in 1845, Donna Anna 
Francelina, dau. of Senhor Joachim* 
Joseph dos Santos de Camargo, of 
the noble family of this name, of 
Spanish origin, in that province, 
and had : 

I. The Rev. Harold Daunt, 
Catholic Priest, deceased. 

II. Torlogh, of whom presently. 

III. Rev. F e r g u s-0'Connor,t 
Ph. Doc, a Catholic Priest. 

IV. Brian, a B.L. by the Faculty 
of San Paulo. 

* Joachim : This Joachim's first cousin, Father Didacus (Diogo) Antony Feijo, 
was Regent of the Empire of Brazil during part of the Minority of the present Em- 
peror (living in 1887) ; and was also a Senator. 

t 0' Connor : Tradition says that an ancestor of these O'Connors was roasted over 
a slow fire by Cromwellian soldiers. His widow secreted a large quantity of gold coins

UndePv the Acts of Settlement and Explanation (1661-1665), Captain 
John, Richard, and Thomas Dawson obtained grants of land in Ireland, 
much of which has passed away from the family ; and many members of the 
family are reduced to the condition of tillers of the soil. This Captain 
John Dawson was one of the " Forty-nine Officers ;" his descendants were 
as follows : 

1. Captain John Dawson, of 
Drummany, county Monaghan. 

2. Richard : his son ; had a sister 
Mary, who married Patrick Mor 

DufiFy. (See No. 2 on the " DuflFy" 
pedigree, p. 423, Vol. I.) 

3, James : his son ; settled in the 
county Cork. Had two sons : — 1. 

in her woollen under-garment ; and in Bandon, then one of the enemy's strongholds 
in Ireland (an enemy's stronghold often being the best hiding place), reared her son 
(the first, now nominally known, ancestor of General Arthur O'Connor), in English 
ideas and customs. The widow taught her son to write his name Conner ; as the 
Ballybricken family still spell the name. The Kilcaskan branch of the " Daunt" 
family shares the blood of the O'Connors Kerry ; the paternal grandmother of Mr. 
William O'Neill Daunt and of Doctor Richard Gumbleton Daunt (both living in 1S87) 
being of that family, and cousin-german of General Arthur O'Connor, son of Roger 
O'Connor, brother of General Arthur O'Connor, who was in the service of France, and 
whose grandson, Captain Ferdinand O'Connor, is son-in-law of Marshal MacMahon, 
the Duke of Magenta, living in 1887. General Arthur O'Connor married Donna Ercilia, 
daughter of General Francis Burdett O'Connor (brother of Fergus), and had an only 
son, Don Thomas O'Connor d'Arlach, an LL.D. of the University of Chuquisaca, who 
in 1883, resided at the City of Farija, in Bolivia, and then had three children. This 
General was baptized "Francis Burdett," as godson of the English radical Sir 
Francis Burdett ; and married Donna Francisca Ruyloba, who died October, 1886. 

* Daxoson : Some members of this family in Munster say that the name was 
originally the French UOssone; while, in p. 402 of Vol. I. of this Edition we give it 
as one of the anglicised forms of the Irish AlacDaibhidh, derived from David M6r, 
who is No. 122 on the " Davidson" pedigree, and who lived in the beginning of the 
15th century. Some of the descendants of that David Mor may have emigrated to 
France, and there assumed the name D'Ossone; but some of them settled in Eng- 
land, whence some of their descendants afterwards came to Ireland, under the name 


Richard, of whom presently ; and 2.

This family name has been variously rendered Courcy, Courcie, Curmj, 
Cursie, and Curcie ; and, according to Lodge, is allied to most of the princes 
of Europe. It derives its descent in the male line from the House of 
Lorraine, of the race of the Emperor Charlemagne, who died A.D. 814 ; 
and, in the female line, from the three first Dukes of Normandy. Tracing 
the descent from Charles Martel, the following is the pedigree : 

1. Charles Martel, had :

Great), King of France (d. 814),

t Caldbeck : The issue of that marriage was Dorothea Carson (died 1878), m. in 
1823 to Edward Moore, of the Bawn, county Tyrone, and had issue— the eldest sur- 
viving son being Thomas F. Moore, living in 1880. 

% Representative : This Matthew- James Taylor, of London, was married, and bad 
an only son, Charles Taylor, living in 1880. 

§ Teutonkus ; By Norman writers Balderic Teutonicus was so styled, possibly 
because he had spent some time with his friends in Germany ; and was also described 
as a stout and warlike commander. 



12. Eobert De Courcy, Lord of 
Courcy, in Normandy, who married 
and had : 

13. Eichard De Courcy (d. 1098),

Robert was the founder of the 
Nunnery of Canniogton, in Somer- 
setshire ; he married one of the six 
daughters of Hugh Le Grantmes- 
nil,* Lord of Hinckley, in the co. 
of Leicester, who was Lord High 
Steward of England, and who died 

22nd February, 1098. This Robert 
mar. and had : 

15. Robert De Courcy, Baron of 
Stoke, who was the principal Com- 
mander of the English forces 
against the Scots at the battle of 
Northampton. He mar. and had : 

16. William, Lord of Islip (d. 
1171), who mar. Juliana, dau. of 
Risherim De Aquila, and had two 
sons and a daughter : 

I. Sir John De Courcy, first earl 
of Ulster, of whom presently. 

II. Jordan De Courcy, or, as he 
was also called, Jordan Teu- 
tonicus, who was the ancestor 
of the Le Exeter Jordan^ 
family; and who in 1197 was 
killed in Ulster by an Irish 

I. The daughter was married to 
Sir Almeric Tristram, ancestor 
of the Earl of Howth. 
Sir John De Courcy having 
served King Henry II. in his wars 
in England and Gascoigne was sent 
by that Monarch to Ireland in 1177. 
Of the Anglo-Norman invaders of 
Ireland, Sir John De Courcy was 
one of the most renowned. He 
was a man of great strength, of 
gigantic stature, and indomitable 
courage. Holingshed states that 
De Courcy rode on a white horse, 
and had three eagles painted on his 
standards, to fulfil a prophecy made 
by Merlin, viz., " that a knight 
riding on a white horse, and bear- 
ing birds on his shield, should be 
the first of the English who, with

force of arms, would enter and con- 
quer Ulster." De Courcy had his 
chief castle at Downpatrick ; he 
assisted William Fitz Adelm in the 
government of Ireland, from 1177 
to 1179. Among the Eeligious 
Houses endowed by De Courcy was 
the Abbey for Benedictines at 
Downpatrick, circa 1180, to which 
he gave a Charter which was wit- 
nessed by his brother Jordan De 
Courcy ; and St. Andrew's Monas- 
tery, in the Ards.* In 1181, he 
was created Earl of Ulster, to which 
dignity was attached the lordship of 
Connaught ; he was the first of the 
Anglo-Norman invadeis of Ireland 
whom Henry II. dignified by any 
title. In 1182, De Courcy married 
Africa, daughter of Godred, King 
of the Isle of Man ; and he unsuc- 
cessfully invaded Connaught in 
1188. His great rivals were the 
De Lacys, Lords of Meath, with 
"whom he had many contests.

devotions of that period, walking

shrines of three of Ireland's greatest 
saints there buried, namely. Saints 
Patrick, ^Columkille, and Bridgid, 
Sir John De Courcy, who was ac- 
companied only by his two nephews 
— sons of his brother Jordan De 
Courcy — was attacked by De Lacy's 
followers ; when the two nephews 
were slain while defending their 
uncle, and he, having nothing to 
defend himself with but the pole of 
a Cross which he had picked up 
from the ground, was overpowered 
and made prisoner after a desperate 
struggle, in which, we are told, he 
slew thirteen of De Lacy's men.f 
Through the influence of De Lacy, 
sustained by King John, Sir John 
De Courcy was banished from Ire- 
land ; he died an exile in France, 
A.D. 1210.— See Darcy McGee's 
History of Ireland. According to 
Giraldus Cambrensis, Sir John De 
Courcy died without leaving a son 
to succeed him ; but, according to 
other authorities, he had a son

parish in the barony of Lecale, county of Down, and province of Ulster ; five miles 
and a half S. E. by E., from Downpatrick ; and is so called from a lofty gi-een hill of 
conical form called the Ward, situated to the west of the town. From the remains of 
several castles it appears to have been formerly a place of some importance : " Jordan's 
Castle" is memorable for the gallant and protracted defence that it made during the 
insurrection of the Earl of Tyrone, in the reign of Elizabeth; and derived its present 
name from its loyal and intrepid proprietor, Simon Jordan, who for three years 
sustained the continued assaults of the besiegers, till he was at length relieved by the 
Lord Deputy Mountjoy, who sailed with a fleet from Dublin, and landed here on the 
17th June, 1611 ; and after relieving the garrison pursued the insm-gents . . . ; 
and Jordan was rewarded for his services by a Concordatum from the Queen. 

'^ Men: As evidence of the great strength of members of the De Courcy family 
even in the 15th century, the Four Masters, under a.d. 1472, make special mention of 
a Mac Jordan who was descended from a branch of that family : 

" MacWilliam Burke marched with an aimy into Hy-Maine, to aid Teige Caoch 
O Kelly, and after gaining power over the Hy-Manians, from the Suck (river) west- 
ward, and taking hostages from them, great punishment was executed against them 
ultimately ; for six-and- twenty soldiers, along with the grandson of Walter Burke, the 
sons of MacMaurice, the sons of Mac Jordan, the son of MacAuveely, and others having 
fled (or strayed) from their forces, were taken, and all put to death by the Manians,

Charles the Great) was the ancestor of Lacy ; from him down to Sir Hago

* Miles : In the History of Ireland, by John James McGregor, Second Edition 
(1829), it is stated that " The persecntion by the De Lacys against the De Courcys, 
after the imprisonment of Sir John De Courcy in 1203, was so great that the De Lacys 
procured the assassination of the natural son of De Courcy, viz., John De Courcy, Lord 
of Raheny or Batheny and Kilbarrock, connty of Dublin." 

This name Miles, originally " Meiler," and more lately " Myler," is now rendered 
" Myles ;" and is to this day a favourite name in the Jordan family, as well as in 
other families in Ireland. 

t Baron : In consideration of their ancestors the successors of the barons of 
Kinsale were allowed the peculiar privilege of wearing their hats in the Royal 
presence : a right which, we are told, the baron of Kinsale exercised on the occasion 
of King George the Fourth's visit to Ireland, a.d. 1821. 

X Hugh de Lacy : The De Lacys came from Normandy with William the Con- 
queror, and were earls of Lincoln, in England. Hugh de Lacy came to Ireland with 
King Henry the Second, a.d. 1171, and obtained from that monarch a grant of the 
whole kingdom of Meath, as already mentioned. He was lord palatine of Meath, and 
many years chief governor of Ireland. He erected numerous castles, particularly in 
Meath and Westmeath, as those of Trim, Kells, Ardnorcher, Durrow, &c., and endowed 
some monasteries. He is thus described in Holingshed : — "His eyes were dark and 
deep-set, his neck short, his stature small, his body hairy, not fleshy, but sinewy, strong, 
and compact ; a very good soldier, but rather harsh aud hasty." It appears from 
Hanmer and others, that he was an able and politic man in state affairs, but very

DE LACY. (No. 2.) 

Arms : Same as " De Lacy," No. I. 

This pedigree is from a copy of the De Lacy genealogy, written A. d. 1845, 
and in that year published in the Limerick Reporter and Tipperarij Vinclii 
cator, by John D'Lacy, Mary Street, Limerick; George D'Lacy, samei 
address; and Patrick D'Lacy, same address, also ; the three of whom affirm, 
as follows : 

The following is our genealogy : 
—Anthony D'Lacy, the son of Hugh 
D'Lacy, was Lord Lieutenant of Ire- 
land in 1335, as were many more of 
the said family, which may be seen by 
Compendium of Frances Nicholas, 

page 14. Gilbert D'Lacy, the son 
of said Anthony, had a son John 
D'Lacy, Earl of Meath, who married 
a sister to Richard III., King of 
England, and was killed with said 
Richard at the battle of Bosworth, 

ambitious and covetous of wealth and great possessions ; he is also represented as a 
famous horseman. De Lacy 's second wife was a daughter of King Roderick O'Connor ; 
and his descendants, the De Lacys, were lords of Meath, and earls of Ulster, and 
founded many powerful families in Meath, Westmeath, and Louth, and also in Limerick,; 
some of whom were distinguished marshals in the service of Austria and Russia. The 
castle of Dearmagh or "Durrow," in the King's County, was erected by De Lacy on 
the site of a famous monastery of St. Columkille, which he had thrown down ; and his 
death was attributed by the uneducated Irish to that circumstance as a j udgment from 
Heaven. The man who killed De Lacy fled to his accomplices in the wood of Clair or 
"Clara," but it appears from MacGeoghegan and others, that the Irish attacked and 
put to the sword the English retinue at the castle of Durrow, and that having got 
De Lacy's body into their possession, they concealed it nearly ten years, when, A.D. 
1195, it was interred with great pomp in the abbey of Bective, in Meath ; Mathew 
O'Heney, archbishop of Cashel, and John Comyn, archbishop of Dublin, attending at 
the ceremony. — Connellan, 


22nd August, 1485. Hugh D'Lacy, 
the son of said John, had a sou 
Patrick D'Lacy, who married Mary 
Courtney, daughter of his Excel- 
lency Philip Coui'tney, who was a 
near relative to Eichard IL, King 
of England, and his Viceroy in Ire- 
land, A.D. 1383. Said Patrick 
D'Lacy and Mary Courtney had two 
sons, Eddy and Peter. Eddy was 
married to Lord Dunboyn's dau., 
by whom he had several issues, the 
eldest of which, William, married 
Margaret Supple, daughter to the 
Eio;ht Honourable Supple, of Innis- 
faile. Said William had a son 
Pierce D'Lacy, who married 
Catherine Baggott, of Baggots- 
town, whose son Captain John 
D'Lacy, married Julian Browne, 
dau. to Colonel Browne, and niece 
to Lord Kenmare. Captain John 
D'Lacy was 115 years old when he 
died ; he had issue Maurice, Peter, 
Pierce, John, James, and Fanny 
D'Lacy, who mar. Eichard Canter, 
Captain of Horse to King Charles. 
Maurice married Jane Canter, who 
had several issues, the eldest of 
whom, JohUj was married to Kelton 
Wall. Peter D'Lacy, son of Captain 
John, married Mary Courtney, dau. 
of Thomas Courtney, and Catherine 
Neagle, by whom he had issue Peter, 
John,and JohannaD'Lacy. Johanna 
was married to Browne of Eath- 
cahil ; Peter became Field Marshal 
of Eussia ; and John was married 
to Jane Canter, and lived at Clon- 
keen, near Abigdon, in the county 
of Limerick ; so that John, who was 
married to Kelton Wall, was cousin 
german to John and his wife Jane 
Canter. James, the son of Captain 
John, quitted Ireland after the siege 
of Limerick ; John or Pierce, the 
sons of Captain John, was the 
father of Bishop Eobert D'Lacy, of 
Limerick, who had many brothers ; 
D'Lacy, of Ballingarry, was brother 

to Bishop D'Lacy, and had issue 
Patrick D'Lacy, whom the Bishop 
apprenticed to Joseph Franklin, 
Cordwainer, of the City of Limerick, 
Patrick, the Cordwainer, had issueby 
Mary Doyle, of the City of Limerick, 
Edmond, James, George, Pierce, 
Patrick, John, and Francis D'Lacy. 
John, as above mentioned, the son 
of Patrick, is now living and aged 
about 82 years ; James, the son of 
Patrick, had issue Pierce and George 
D'Lacy ; George is now living, and 
aged as mentioned in our former 
application ; Edmond, the son of 
Patrick, had issue Patrick, who is 
now living and aged 40 years ; we 
cannot state the General's Christian 
name, but that Patrick, the Cord- 
wainer, was cousin to the General, and 
we refer you to the claim of Pierce, 
the brother of George above men- 
tioned, whom he sent to Vienna in 
the year 1829, and do claim accord- 
ing to its statement : — John D. 
D'Lacy, Mary Street, Limerick;

Kilkeedy, in the co. of Limerick, 
in 1678. He was an ensign in the

surrender of Limerick he went with 
his uncle, General Lacy, to France, 
and entered the regiment of Ath-

and on the Ehine. Being mus-

of Eyswick, he entered the Eussian 
service as Captain of Infantry in 
1700, and rose by his valour to the 
rank of Marshal and Commander-

This family name occurs frequently in Inquisitions of the reign of Richard I., 

* Feild: This name has been modernized Delafield, Delafeld, Field, and Feld. Of 
the De la Feild family were the Delafields of Fieldstown, county Meath, from whom, 
on his maternal grandmother's side fa Delafield or De la Feld), is descended the Rev. 
John Beaufort Berkeley Barter, M.R.I.A., F.R.G.S.I., F.R.H. & Arch. A.I., F.R.Z.S., 
etc., of Glasthule Lodge, Kingstown, county Dublin, and British Chaplain, Turin, 
Italy. The De La Feild family originally came from Alsace, and Vorarlberg in the 
Austrian Tyrol. A branch of the same family were Counts in Westphalia, and Barons 
in Pomerania — now entirely extinct. The Counts De La Feld of Alsace were very 
famous in the eleventh and twelfth contui'ies. They entertained Pope St. LeoLX. , 
when he consecrated Strasburg Cathedral ; were gi'cat benefactors to the Church ; and 
were distinguished Counts of the Holy Roman Empire. The ruins of the Castle 
of the Coimts De La Feld of Alsace are still to be seen ; and the Vorarlberg branch of 
the family existed, until recently, at the Castle of Feldkircher in the Austrian Tyrol. 
The last Count of the family that we had any knowledge of was Count John Delafeld, 
who was married to a daughter of the Earl of Limerick. He is mentioned by Dodd in 
his Peerage and Baronetage of 1857, as the Rev. Count John Dela Feld, and as married 
to the above named lady. 

The Rev. John Beaufort Berkeley Barter, above mentioned, can therefore claim 
descent from King Edward the First of England, both paternally through his grand- 
mother Elizabeth Berkeley, descended from Edward I, through the Lords Berkeley, 
of Berkeley Castle ; and, maternally, thx'ough his grandmother Sarah De la Field or De la 
Feld, descended from the Delafields of Fieldstown, who intermarried with the ancient 
Earls of Ormonde, and through that marriage brought in the blood of the Princess Eliza- 
beth Plantagenet, daughter of King Edward L , who was mar. to Humphrey De Bohun, 
Earl of Hereford, Essex, and Northampton, and Hereditary High Constable of 



b connection chiefly with Bedfordshire, and is derived apparently from 
'he *' Manerium de La Hyde juxta Luton," in that county.

In 1387, Walter, son of James, Knight, was appointed Constable of 
Crym Castle, and of the lordship of Carbry. 

In 1414, Henry V. granted to Sir Walter de la Hide the annual sum 
)f Forty Marks, payable by the Prior of Kilmainham. 

In 1615, Elizabeth, Dowager Countess of Kildare, filed an article of 
jomplaint against Gerald, 9th Earl, and Delahide, of Moyglare, Steward

In 1528, Sir Walter, of Moyglare, and Walter Wellesley, of Dangan^ 
yere commissioned to treat with O'Connor Faly, for the ransom of the 
uord Deputy, who had been seized by O'Connor. 

In 1533, Christopher was Chief Justice, and Pdchard, Justice of Common 
Pleas. Dame Jenet Eustace (whose sister Alison married Gerald 8th Earl 
5f Kildare), daughter of Sir Rowland Eustace, Baron of Portlester, was 
fcvife to Sir Walter de la Hide, aforesaid, and foster mother to " Silken" 
Thomas. She and her sons James and John were prime movers of the 
jreraldine insurrection. James, cousin to the Lord Thomas FitzGerald, 
fvas his Chief Counsellor in all his doings ; and was included in the Excom- 
2iunication pronounced by the Chapter of Dublin, against him for the 
rilling of John Allen, Archbishop of Dublin, in 1534. 

In 1537, James and his brothers John and Edward (Parson of Kilbery) 
?rere included in the Act of Attainder. 

The heir to the Earldom, Gerald, a boy of twelve years, was entrusted 
bo the care of James, who fled with him to the youth's aunt, the Lady 
Eleanor FitzGerald, widow of MacCarthy Reagh, whereby the direct line

Herbert De Lamare, or, as he was called in Irish, Erebeirt an Muireach, 
(muireach : Irish, " a sailor or mariner"), was considered to be of French 

He came into Ireland upon the first invasion thereof by the English, 
and, after a time, was made governor of the lower borders of Meath, now 
called "Westmeath," then the limits of the English conquests in that 
country ; where he and his posterity obtained great estates and possessions. 
This Herbert de Lamare was the ancestor of Delamere, anglicised Delmore ;

William de Lamare, son of Herbert, lived in the reign of Henry thei 
Third, King of England j and founded the Abbey of Friary of Multifarn-^

John de Lamare (or Delamare), son, it is supposed, of the aforesaid 
William, built the strong castle of Street, in the territory of Maghbreaory,'. 
in the country of Annaly (now the county " Longford"), which he madel 
his chief seat, A.D. 1294 ; and so continued to the chiefs of his posterity, 
until their estates were confiscated by Cromwell and his adherents, during 
the '^Commonwealth." In the same year (of 1294) this John Delamara 
joined with John Fitzgerald, baron of O'Phaley (now " OfFaley"), who was 
afterwards first earl of Kildare, in a great quarrel between him and 
Kichard Bourke, the Red Earl of Ulster ; and, by his assistance, defeated 
and took the said earl, and committed him prisoner in the Castle of Ley, 
for a long time. After the year 1298, the said John Delamare was slaia 
in an engagement with his Irish enemies of Annaly.

Barons of Drumramj. 

As members of this family intermarried with that of Purcellof Esker, the 
Arms of the Dillon-Purcell family are here impaled : 

Arms : Quarterly, 1st and 4tli argent, on a bend over two bars, wavy, gules, three 
black boars' heads, proper, armed and tongued, argent, for Purcell ; 2nd, argent, 
within a border, ermine, a lion rampant, gules, bearing in his dexter paw a ducal 
coronet, or, debruised by a bar, azure, for Dillon (as given in Lodge' s Peerage, for the 
Dillons of Drumrany) ; Srd, gules, afesse, chequy, azure and argent, between three mul- 
lets, argent, for Lindsey. Crests : A cubit arm, gules, the hand holding a sword erect, 
thereon a dove, volitant, proper, for Purcell. 2nd, a demi-hon, rampant, gules, 
issuing out of a ducal coronet, or, holding in his dexter paw a like coronet, or, for 
DiLLOK. Motto: "Dum Spiro, Spero." 

This noble family, according to " Dillon" (No. 1) pedigree, in Vol. I., 
and to Lodge (see Lodge's Peerage, Vol. IV., p. 135), is said to derive its 
origin from Lochan or Logan Delune, or Delion (a descendant of one of 
the Monarchs of Ireland), who married the daughter of the Duke of 
Aquitaine, and, on her father's death, became Prince and Sovereign of 
Aquitaine.* This principality continued in his posterity until King 

* Aquitaine : The history of these events, says Lodge, may be found in the records 
of Aquitaine, now in the Tower of London, and in ancient MSS. in Cotton and 
Lambeth Libraries. 


Henry II. married Eleanora, daughter and heir to William, Duke of 
Aquitaiue, and, about A.D. 1172, by his superior power, obtained Aqui- 
taine : upon which event he brought over to En<;land the two male 
descendants of Lochan Deliou, viz.: Sir Henry Delion and Thomas, 

infants.* . ^ , , 

The said Henry Delion (now Dillon), in 1185, was sent mto Ireland, 
and King John granted to him there MacCarron's territory with part of 
Annaly and other vast possessions, to hold Per Baroniam in^ Capite, by 
the service of sixty Knights' fees.f He was then honoured with Knight- 
hood, and by this tenure (which was attended by a kind of sovereignty) 
he and his heirs were entitled to have summons to Parliament like the 
ancient Barons of England, who held their baronies by the same tenure. 
He built his mansion-house, with a Church, in Drurarany, also a Castle • 
in Dunimony ; and several abbeys (as those of Athlone, Holy Island, etc.), 
and other Churches and Castles. He was progenitor to all who bear the 
name of DiUun : a name of great note in the counties of Meath, Westmeath, 
Lon'-ford, lloscommou, Mayo, and other parts of Ireland, where, and in 
many foreign countries, they have flourished in the highest departments of 
Church^ and State. 

Family traditions when genuine are entitled to the greatest weight ; they are 
usually based upon truth while erroneous in details, and their very errors often serve 
to authenticate the story, as they ^how it is not the concoction of a mere pedigree-maker 
putting together scnxps and fragments of annals and chronicles, and then dubbing it 
a family tradition, as is too often the case, and is indeed here instanced by the silly 
tale of Lochan Dilune. The rest of the story appears, at the first glance, equally 
absurd. No such events ever did, or could have happened in Aquitaine. For Henry 
acquired the province in the 5'ear 1152, and before he was King of England, and it 
was a perfectly peaceful acquisition ; in history there is no trace of war or strife of 
any kind on the occasion, and there is no trace of such a name as Dillon, Delion, 
Deloune, or anything like it in all Aquitaine. If, however, we turn to the history of 
another of the numberless provinces at that period annexed to the English Crown — to 
Brittany, we shall find the tale told us substantially true, and the error to lie in the 
substitution of Aquitaine for Brittany, and that in the latter, the name of De Leon, 
or De Liuns, according to the orthography of the English Chronicler (see Benedict 

* Infants : The above account of the origin of this family is based on tradition 
only. The assertion, however, is disputed. 

f Fees : That large tract of land was called, after its Lord, " Dillons' Country," 
and so continued until the reign of King Henry VIII. 

X Church : Thomas Dillon, son of Sir Thomas, was Bishop of Ossory ; Thomas, 
son of Robert, Lord of Drumrany, was Bishop of Kildare ; Edmund, his brother, was 
Abbot of St. Thomas, near Dublin. They lived in the 14tli centur3\ Arthur Dillon, 
brother of the 10th Viscount, was Archbishop of Toulouse ; he was a distinguished 
prelate ; died in London, in 1806, and was interred in Old St. Pancras' Church-yard. 
The following distinguished themselves in the State and in the Army : Sir Robert 
Dillon was (in Ireland) Attorney-General to Henry VIII. ; and Justice of the Queen's 
Bench and Privy Councillor in Queen Mary's reign. Sir Lucas, his son, was a lawyer 
of note, and Chief Baron of the Exchequer, in 1572. The first four Earls of Ros- 
common ; the 4th, a poet, was buried in Westminster Abbey, in 1684 ; the 4th 
Viscount Dillon. Arthur Dillon was Marshal de Camp and Governor of Toulon, in 
France, in 1705, he commanded an Irish Regiment when he was only 20 years of age. 
Arthur Dillon, a son of the 11th Viscount, was Governor of Tobago, West Indies, 
and was the last Colonel commanding the famous "Dillon's Regiment;" he was 
guillotined in 1794, and his Regiment was disbanded. Maria, the granddaughter of 
the 11th Viscount, m. His Serene Highness the Duke de Croy Dulmen, in 1821. 


of Peterborough passim), was already ancient and well known. We shall find in the 
Breton annals and records, how the Barons and Seigneurs of Bi'ittany rose in arms 
against Henry XL, when under pretext of the marriage of his son Geoffrey with 
Constance — the Constance of poetic fame — heiress of the Duchy, he virtually annexed 
it ; how the De Leons were the principal leaders of the revolt ; how, overpowered 
and crushed by the might of the English King, they at last submitted, swore fealty, 
and gave hostages. We are not expressly told that some of the hostages were of their 
kin, nor of their ultimate fate, unless, perhaps, that Adam de Leon, the Crusader who 
died at the siege of Acre, in the retinue of Richard Coeur de Lion, was one of them 
(see Roger de Hoveden, Bouquet, V. 13). Nor are we told that any of them were 
carried beyond the seas, and finally planted in Ireland, the last of the King's 
acquisitions, at a safe distance from their ancient home, but we may quite reasonably 
trust a family tradition to that eflfect, which is so well supported by history, and 
whose gemiineness is in fact authenticated by the very error of locality, which proves 
it is not the concoction of a genealogist. 

Dom Labiueau (History of Brittany, p. 106) tells us that "The House of the 
Viscounts De Leon was illustrious from the tenth century. Even, Lord of that 
country — the terror of the Normans — built the tow-n which was called after him, 
Liz-u-Even — that is, the Court or Fort of Even. Ekuara, Viscount De Leon after him, 
was the father of Guihomar. The latter, in the year 1021, held the rank of Viscount 
De Leon (Chartulary of Kemperle and of Rennes, pp. 98 and 130). At that time, in 
Brittany and Normandy, it was the highest title conferred — the style of Count being 
reserved for members of the sovereign house — and to it was annexed a kind of 
palatine jurisdiction, extending over a large territory. He was succeeded by Marvan, 
Viscount de Leon. His successor was Guihomar II., Viscount de Leon, who gave to 
God and St. ^lelanie, and to the Monks thereof, for ever, the Church of St. Mary of 
Morlaix, together with other benefits. He was slain by treachery in the year 1103 
(see Charters of Daoullas, Lob. Preuves, p. 128 ; and Breton Chron. of Nantes, 
Bouq. xii, p. 557). ^ Harvey, Viscount De Leon, was his son and successor. He was 
a very valiant knight, says the Chronicler, and fought in many famous battles in 
England and in other places, and lost an eye in the wars (Guilelm. Armoric. Bouq. xii.). 

Guihomar III., Viscount De Leon, his son and successor, was, says Robert de Mont, 
" one who feared not God nor man." He it was who took such a leading part in the 
Breton resistance to K. Henry II., as has been already mentioned. On his final 
overthrow, in 1178, he and his wife Nobilia departed on a pilgrimage to Jerusalem 
(see Robert De Mont, Bouq. xiii., p. 310). In 1173, he together with his wife Nobilia 
and his sons, urged by the warnings of God, founded an abbey in honour of Blessed 
Mary, at Daoullas, and for the maintenance of its Canons, and for the remission of 
their sins, they bestowed, in the presence of the Bishop of Guimper, various gifts. (See 
Daoullas Charters, Lobin, Preuves, p. 128.) 

Guihomar's successors continued, for many generations, to take a prominent part 
in the History of Brittany ; but, towards the close of the thirteenth century, the last 
of the elder line being encumbered with heavy debts, sold the Viscountship and the 
palatine jurisdiction attached to it, to Jean le Roux, the then reigning Duke, and 
they remained thenceforth annexed to the Duchy. The representation of the family 
devolved upon the De Leons, Seigneurs de Chateau-neuf, and, in the fourteenth 
century, it passed by a female heir to the great house of De Rohan, who in the year 
1406 carried on a great suit with the De Vitre's for the rank of premier Peer of Brittany, 
in right of the " Sirerie" of Leon. 

Since then, the De Rohans style themselves Princes De Leon (see Ibid. Preuves, 
p. 458. From Rolls in the Castles of Nantes). It is noteworthy that the armorial 
bearing of De Leon is a Lion, and that a cadet of the House, Seigneurs de Hacqueville, 
give a Lion rampant, within a bordure, charged with annulets — the very coat, with a 
fesse substituted for the annulets, borne by Dillon of Drumrany. 

The junior branches of this family were numerous: among them being 
the Earls of Roscommon, Viscounts Dillon, Lords Clonbrock. 

The further history of this family is given in detail by Lodge down to 
the year 1743, of which the following is a short summary, concluding with 
the further pedigree of the family* down to the year 1887.

an emment lawyer, father of Sir Lucas Dillon ; Lucas, Jane, and Mary. The issue of

who afterwards resided in London 
by the name of Dominick, and, 
although civiliter mortuus, was Lord 
Baron of Drumrany, by the said 
ancient tenure Cap. per Baroniam, 
this branch of the family never 
suffering any attainder) ; 2. Chris- 
topher, also an Ecclesiastic ; 3. 
James, a Colonel in the Army of 
King James IL, in whose service 
he (the said James Dillon) lost his

O'Molloy, of Ughterheere, and 

by her had three surviving sons, 
namely — 1. Gerald; 2. Thomas, 
who mar. Mabel Dillon, widow of 
A. Robinson, but left no issue ; 3. 
William, who m. a dau. of the said 
A. Robinson, and by her had an

15. Gerald Dillon, Esq. : eldest 
son of Richard by his second wife ; 
studied the law in the Inns of 
Court ; was seated at Dillon's 
Grove, and married, first, Catherine, 
daughter of James Nugent, of 
Dysert, Westmeath, Esq., by 
whom he had no surviving issue. 
He married, secondly, Honora, 
daughter of Pierce Aylward, of 
Ballynegar. He was living after 
1743, and by the said Honora (who 
died in that year) had — 1. Richard ; 

2. Aylward ; 3. Mary ; 4. Margaret. 
So far Lodge's Peerage (Vol. lY., 
page 173) which says that this par- 
ticular branch of Drumrany is 

totally extinct, or fallen to decay. 
But this is correct as to the male 
line only ; in the female line it 
is represented by the families of 
O'Connor, of Milton, Roscommon, 
and of Purcell, of Esker, Kilkenny, 
as we shall now see. The sons of 
the said Gerald, dying without sur- 
viving issue, Mary and Margaret 
became co-heirs, both of whom 
married and had issue. As in 
this family, in virtue of its 
feudal tenure, the female, in de- 
fault of male issue, inherited the 
Barony of Drumrany ; consequently 
Mary and Margaret Dillon's respec- 
tive issue became co-heirs and co- 
representatives of the aforesaid 
Barons of Drumrany. The said 
Mary Dillon mar. in 1749, Thomas 
0'Connor,t of Milton, Roscommon, 
whose son and heir, Roderick, con- 
formed to the (late) Established 
Church and took the Oath of Su- 
premacy in 1760, and in conformity 
with the Penal Laws then in force in 
Ireland, became, as Protestant next 
of kin, possessed of the whole 
property of Dillon's Grove, the 
Catholic co-heir being disinherited.^ 
Margaret Dillon, § the second dau., 
and co-heir, mar. her first cousin, 
Thomas Dillon, of Kilbane, Queen's 
County, Esq., the nephew of Gerard 
Dillon, of Dillon's Grove, and had 
two daughters. The eldest, Arabella 
Dillon, m. Pierce, son of Redmund 
Purcell, II of Doonane, Queen's Co. 
The issue of this marriage was three 
daughters (who all died s.p.) and

t Dishiherited : The particulars of this disinheritance are to be foimd in the 
Record Office, Dublin. 

§ Dillon : Margaret Dillon remained a Catholic ; thereby forfeiting her property, 
the moiety of Dillon's Grove.

§ Purcell : By the intermarriage of the Purcells of Esker, with the Dillons of 
Drumrany, this family has had to suffer from the consequences of three confiscations : 
the possessions of the said Dillons and of the Purcells having been respectively confis- 
cated in 1652, 1653, and 1691 ; and what remained to the Dillons, as Transplantation 
Land, having, owing to the Penal Laws, been forfeited in comparatively modern times, 
viz., about one hundred years ago. This family is, also, almost the only Catholic 
Ilej)resentative of the ancient families of the Dillons and Purcells, who flourished for 
several centuries, and built and endowed many Churches and Abbeys in vai'ious parts 
of Ireland ; until, owing to their fidelity to their religion, to their King and country, 
they lost then- estates, and had to seek an asylum in France, Spain, Austria, and the 
West Indies, in which countries down to the present day, there are many families — 
some still distinguished — bearing those names. 

H Sir F, Desanges, of Aston House, Oxon., and London, was a member of a noble

of London, and a Magistrate in the county of Middlesex.

Sir Richard Fitz Eustace was Baron of Castle Martin, a.d. 1200; 
while others of the family were Barons of Harristown and Portlester. In 
1639, Maurice Eustace was Speaker of the House of Commons; and in 
1660 he was appointed Lord Chancellor of Ireland, and his ancient 
inheritance in Kildare and Dublin was confirmed to him. In 1688, his 
son Sir Maurice Eustace espoused the cause of King James II., and, in his I 
service, commanded an Infantry Eegiment, at whose head he fought ati 
Derry. At his house at Kilcullen Bridge, King James, on his journey to 
Dublin, stopped on Saturday, 23rd March, 1688-9. After the Revolution 
Sir Maurice Eustace was one of the Forfeiting Proprietors whose properties 
were sold at Chichester House, Dublin, in 1702-3. 

Charles Stannard Eustace, Esq., of Eobertstown, county Kildare, and 
Ballydoyle, county Cork, Viscount Baltinglass in the Peerage of Ireland, 
but for the attainder of the Third Viscount Baltinglass by Queen Elizabeth, 
died at Brighton in 1875. His father, the late Eev. Charles Eustace, of 
Eobertstown, eldest son of General Charles Eustace, M.P., having become 
male representative of his family, petitioned the Crown, in 1839, to have 
his right to the Viscountcy acknowledged, and the then Attorney-General 
(the late Lord Chancellor Brady), having investigated the case, reported 
that _ " the petitioner had shown sufficient evidence of his right to the 
dignity of Viscount Baltinglass, in case the attainder created by the Act of 
Elizabeth were reversed." At one period of Irish history the Eustaces, 
Barons of Portlester and Viscounts Baltinglass, were amongst the most 
pot^t nobles of this kingdom, and possessed a great portion of the county 
*^\:j •^^^^'^^* ^^^^ Charles S. Eustace was formerly a captain in the army, 
and m later years was well-known in the fashionable circles of London. 
He married first, 1843, Laura, daughter of Christopher Thomas Tower, 


5sq., of Weald Hall, Essex; and, secondly, in 1864, Eosetta-Philippa, 
laughter of Lieutenant-Colonel Cameron, 79th Highlanders, and grand- 
iaughter of Lieutenant-General Sir Alan Cameron, K.C.B., but left no 
ssue. His nephew and senior heir of line, Lieutenant-Colonel Eoberb 
Jameson Eustace Robertson, late 60th Rifles, succeeded to Captain 
Eustace's estates, and was enjoined to assume the surname and arms of 
Eustace. He was married to the Lady Katherine, daughter of William, 
fourth Earl of Dartmouth. Colonel Eustace Robertson's only sister was 
Mrs. James Jameson, of Airfield House, near Dublin. 

Many residents in Dublin are acquainted with the singularly beautiful 
uins of the Portlester Chapel at the east end of St. Audeon's Church, 
Eigh-street, erected by the first baron in gratitude for his preservation 
Tom shipwreck near the site. A tomb said to be that of the baron and 
lis lady is still in a tolerable state of preservation there. But a similar 
omb bearing the names of Lord and Lady Portlester exists in the ruins of 
N'ew Abbey, near Ballysax, county Kildare, where the Portlesters held 
.arere estates.

To Joseph, the second son of 
Gabriel, his eldest brother Geoffrey 
was obliged by the Will of Sir John 
Everard (1624), to pay out of the 
profits of his estate an annuity of 
X30 (thirty pounds) to his brother 
Joseph ; and " in case the said 
Joseph shall follow his booke and 
shall demeane himselfe vertuously 
and cively then I will that there 
shall be ten pounds more encrease 
.... when he shall accomplish 
the age of one and twenty years." 
This Joseph became a Priest of the 
Order of St. Francis, and was 
guardian of the Franciscan Con- 
vent, Dublin, in 1642. He was 
deputed by the Archbishop of Dub- 
lin (Dr. Fleming), to act as his 
proxy, at the National Synod held 
at Kilkenny, on 10th May, 1642; 
and was subsequently sent as Envoy 
of the Supreme Council of the 
Confederate Catholics, with sealed 
letters to the Vatican, to procure 
arms and munitions for the Con- 
federate Armies. — See Meehan's

EVERAED. (No. 2.) 

Arms : Same as " Everard," No. 1. 

An exhaustive and able disquisition on the Irish origin of this name may 
!be seen in the eighteenth chapter of the third volume of Dr. Lanigan's 
Ecclesiastical History. But whether the Everards are of Irish or Anglo- 
Norman extraction, Fethard* must, at all events, be considered the cradle 
; of the Everard family of the county Tipperary. The common stock, whence 
:all the Everards of Tipperary have sprung, is described by Molyneux as 
" Nicholas Everard, of Fethard, Esq." (See No. 1 on the " Everard," 
No. 1, pedigree.) The third in descent from the said Nicholas was Sir 
John Everard of Fethard, Knt., who about the year 1600, was one of the 
leading citizens of his native town, and subsequently prominent amongst 
the foremost public men in Ireland. On account of his great legal attain- 
ments he was surnamed " the Lawyer." He was appointed Judge, and in 
the discharge of the duties of that high office his career was creditable to 
himself and useful to his country. Trouble, however, overtook him in 
the form of persecution for conscience' sake ; but, having " great repute 
for honestie" and the courage of his convictions, he would not for any 
consideration acknowledge a doctrine which, in his heart, he believed to 
be false. He refused to take the Oath of Supremacy, resigned his position 
on the Bench, and fell into disfavour with those then in power. A signal 
mark of honour awaited him at the hands of his Catholic Countrymen. 
In the Irish Parliament summoned, in 1613, Sir John Everard was chosen 
Speakerf of the House of Commons. A full account of that memorable 
Election is given in the " Hibernia Anglicana," where in a very interesting 
narrative^ in which the Author of that work repeatedly sneers at Sir John, 
are distinctly and faithfully mirrored the disgraceful and lamentable state 
of things, at that period in Ireland, and the unhappy relations which then 
existed between England and that distracted country. The secession of 
the " recusant'' party from Parliament, the fate of the deputation of that 
body to state their case before the King in London, its reception by James I., 
and his addre?!s to the Irish delegates, are matters familiar to ordinary 
readers of Irish History. Sir John| had three sons, and a daughter who 

* Fethard : This is the anglicised form of the Irish Fidh-ard or Fiodh-ard, which 
means the *' high wood." This ivood, to which the town of "Fethard" owes its 
name, was the property of the (Tipperary) Everard family. A very curious reference 
is made to it in the Will (1624) of Sir John Everard, Knight, in which it is described 
as the "Oken Grove." And it is equally curious, that the modern name of the hill 
and townland is Grove. The " Grove" property belongs at the present day to Mr. 
Barton, a descendant of a French gentleman, who, years ago, purchased the property, 
when the descendants of its former possessor, Richard Burgh, became extinct. — 
Idem, p. 450. 

t Speaker : See Carte's Life of the Duke of Ormond, pp. 19, 20, and 22. 
X Sir John: Sir John Everard possessed not only the town of Fethard, which 
belonged to him "for ever by several tenures," and several "castles, towns, and 
lands" in that neighbourhood, but he also had property in Cashel, Clonmel, Camck, 
and in the city and county of Waterford. Sir John obtained licence to hold Courts 
" Leet and Barron" (under 40s.) within the lands in the county Tipperary, andthe 
like in the county Waterford ; to hold a Thursday market at Knockelly ; a fair at 
Glanballyquillinane (Glin 1) on Friday and Saturday after the Ascension ; ... to 
appoint Clerks of Markets, Seneschals, and other officers . . ." 


was married to Henry White, an ancestor of Lord Dunally. In 1661, th 
male descendants of the eldest son of Sir John became extinct in the thir( 
generation. The second son was named Richard, who, a few years befor 
his father's death, which occurred in 1624, was created a Baronet. Thi 
provision made for this son, in Sir John's Will, is as follows : 

"Item : I doe apoint that my son Richard shall have and enjoy all my purchase* 
lands from Sir Patrick Murray in Clangibbon." 

Sir Richard married Catherine Tobin, daughter of the chief of tha' 
name in the neighbourhood of Fethard. The date of that event has beei 
preserved by means of the gift of a chalice bearing on its hexagonal foo 
the folloAving inscription : 

"Ora pro animabus D. Richard! Everard et Catharinse Tobyn. 1627." 

In the little church erected by Sir Richard within the walls whicli 
surrounded his castle at Shaurahan, and dedicated to the Blessed Virgin' 
that sacred vessel was used in the celebration of the Divine Mysteries 
In the course of time their marriage was blessed with a son and twc 
daughters. From the Becords of the Rolls it appears that Sir Richard 
Everard, "Knight and Barronett," was a very extensive proprietor oJ 
land in the barony of Ififa and OfiFa, county Tipperary. To him belonged 
" the manor, castle, town and lands, of Ballyboy /' " the manor, castle, 
town and lands, of Shanraghin," and several other places around 
Clogheen. Sir Richard, in 1631, lived in the Castle at Ballyboy; 
close to which was the magnificent fortress of Fitzgibbon, the White 
Knight. About this period Sir Richard built a formidable military 
stronghold, which was in the form of a parallelogram, and was flanked 
at each angle by a small square tower. This was the favourite residence 
of the family, and was called " Everard's Castle." This Castle stood in; 
the midst of a fertile plain, extending from the foot of " Galtybeg" to 
Clogheen ; and around that stronghold were one thousand acres which, 
also, belonged to Sir Richard. The manor of Everard's Castle was 
" erected" in 1639. With the War (by some called the "Rebellion") in 
Ireland of 1641 came great and endless troubles for Sir Richard. On 
that memorable occasion the Irish were the Royalists ; the English in 
Ireland were the an/i-Royalists or Puritans. For the first two years of 
the War Sir Richard kept aloof from both parties ; but for not joining 
with them the "old" Irish took away from him "160 cows, 33 stud 
mares, and 2,000 sheep." The tenants on his Estate were subjected to 
similar treatment ; the richest of whom with their flocks and goods Sir 
Richard conveyed to "safe quarters." There were still a number of 
families, consisting of eighty-eight individuals, who were so poor as to be 
unable to remove, and these notwithstanding the storm that raged 
outside, Sir Richard, acting on the defensive, maintained, at his own 
expense, until the middle of June, 1642. '■'■The gentlemen," says Carte,* 
" in this part of the Kingdom were exceeding careful to prevent bloodshed 

* Carte : In the first Volume of Carte's Life of (he Duke of Ormond, the author 
refers to Sir Richard Everard, Bart., in pp. 264^ 269, 516 ; in Yol. II., pp. 32, 122, 437 ; 
and in the Appendix to Vol. II., p. 132. 


Kind to preserve the English from being plundered ; several instances 
(maybe given thereof ; but few deserve better to be particularized than 
•(Sir Richard Everard, Bart." And after narrating some of the many good 
(deeds of Sir Eichard, during that stormy period, Carte adds: "There 
are so many acts of horror, cruelty, and inhumanity necessary to be 
recounted in the history of these times, that I fancy the reader will be 
< somewhat relieved by the relation of so remarkable an instance of com- 
passion, tenderness and generosity to the distressed." 

Later on, when the object of the Catholic Confederation was clearly 
known and defined, Sir Richard readily joined the poj)ular movement, 
and, in 1646, was one of the Confederate Catholics who sat, in v/hat 
might be designated, the " Irish Parliament at Kilkenny." Sir Richard 
was a man of considerable ability, courtly manners, fine personal presence 
and good address, and was much esteemed by the moderate party and the 
Catholic Bishops. 

Cromwell's presence in Ireland soon put an end to the deliberations 
of the Confederates at Kilkenny, and desolation marked his progress 
throughout the land. In the Spring of 1650, Cromwell, on his way from 
Youghal to the siege of Clonmel, took and burnt Everard's Castle : hence 
its present name Burntcourt. Nothing daunted, however. Sir Richard, 
who was a better soldier than legislator, and whose gallant exploits at 
this time rendered him very popular, ofi"ered every opposition to Crom- 
well's march ; but he was ultimately compelled to retire to Limerick, where 
he proved himself one of its bravest defenders. A fair estimate of his 
great services in the interests of " Creed and Country" may be had from 
the fact that on the capture of that city, Sir Richard Everard was placed 
in the same category with the gallant defender of Clonmel, namely Hugh 
Dubh O'Neill, and the patriotic Bishop of Emly, the Most Rev. Dr. 
Terence O'Brien ; and, like them, was one of the illustrious band of twenty- 
four Irishmen, whom Cromwell's general (Ireton) sentenced to be hanged ! 

When victory, at length, declared in favour of the arms of the 
Republicans (or Cromwellians, as they were called) in this country and 
in England, the Adventurers who advanced money to carry on the war, 
and the ofiicers and soldiers who took part in it, entered on the possession 
of the estates of those Irish Lords and Gentlemen who were amongst 
the vanquished Royalists. Incredible as it may appear, two ^'pretended 
Adventurers," named Cunningham and Dick, had the audacity to seize 
on a great portion of the property of the Everard family about Clogheen. 
Amongst others. Sir Thomas Stanley,* who ranked as Colonel in Cromwell's 
army, obtained another portion in that quarter. Sir Redmond Everard, 
who was a distinguished officer amongst the cavaliers, succeeded, on the 
death of his father Sir Richard, merely to the title, but _^was obhged to 

* Sir Thomas : Sir Thomas Stanley, when the Commonwealth was at its height, was 
a rabid Puritan and " red" Republican. After the Restoration he became a " zealous" 
Protestant, and appeared a loyal subject of the son of that King against whom he 
rose in rebellion. And although it was manifest he was no believer in the divine 
right of Kings, and no friend of the House of Stuart, he was not only permitted to 
retain the extensive property acquired by him as a Cromwellian officer, and from 
which loyal subjects had been ejected j but he obtained from Charles II. a grant of 
same, amounting to more than 9,000 acres in the neighbourhood of Clonmel. The 


observe a respectful silence regarding the new settlers ; and deemed it 
prudent, also, to keep at a safe distance from his father's property during 
the interregnum. While the Protectorate lasted, Sir Redmond, like many 
other Irish gentlemen, found himself in the most unenviable and straitened 
circumstances. He was not looked upon with favour by the Regicide 
Government, because of his exertions to sustain the tottering House of 
the Stuarts. For above a decade of years (1650 to 1661) Sir Redmond 
was thus obliged to be content with his lot, till the death, at the latter 
date, of the last of the male members of the eldest branch of the family 
(most of whom had probably perished in the previous wars); whereupon, 
Sir Redmond succeeded as " next heir," — not to the Burntcourt, but to 
the Fethard Estates. Now that Charles 11. was on the throne, one might 
expect that the King would not be unmindful of his Irish friends and 
supporters. But no : Sir Redmond among them was forced to wait for a 
second term of over ten years (1661 to 1673) before regaining possession 
of his father's property ; and even then only obtained a " part" of same, 
as appears from the following in Patent ItoUs, Am. 25 Charles II. : — " The 
lands hereafter mentioned being vested in the King, by the Act of 
Settlement, as lands set out to T. Cunningham and Lewis Dick, pretended 
Adventurers, and his Majesty, considering the many good and faithful 
services performed by Sir Redmond Everard, Bart., who was particularly 
provided for in his Majesty's gracious Declaration for the Settlement of Ire- 
land, to be restored to his estate whereof the said lands are part, was pleased 
to restore the same to him and his heirs, pursuant to Privy Seal, dated at 
Whitehall, 24th January, 1672," viz. : the Castles, Messuages, and Lands 
of and in 

Ballyboy ... ... 1,024 (acres) more or less. 

Markett of Clogheen ... 293 „ 

In Ballynemasney ... 301 „ 

To pay the same Quit Rents as were payable by Adventurers for Lands 
in the Province of Munster. 

"InroUed, 5 December, 1673." 

Now the " particular provision," referred to in the above extract, and 
made for Sir Redmond* in His Majesty's Declaration in 1661, was, to 
put it plainly, a mere acknowledgment ou the part of the King, of the 
right and title of Sir Redmond to continue in the undisturbed possession 
of the family property at Fethard, to which he had a just and indisputable 
claim as next heir. A grant of one's own property, or a Royal Patent to 

following names of the chief places of note embodied in that grant will give an idea of 
its extent : Tickincorr, Killganibegg and Killganimore, Castlereagh, Bar Glenehery, 
Grangenagower, Upper and Lower Sillyheens, the town of Ballymacarbery, the town 
of Clonnaffe (Clonmel ?), Ardpaddan, Ballydonogh, Ballymachee, Clogheen, Castle 
Conagh, &c. (See Inrolls. 24th July, 1666. 18 Ch. II.) The sword, used even to 
the present day by the Corporation of Clonmel, was the gift of Sir Thomas, and on it 
appear the Arms of the Stanley family, with the addition of a mural crown, and the 
legend "Ex dono Thomoe Standly, 1656." Sir Thomas was an ancestor of the 
Stanleys of Alderly, Cheshire. 

* Sir Redmond : See Carte's Life of the Duhe of Ormond, Vol. II., p. 545. 


retain it, seems at present rather strange ; but, doubtless, it was more 
intelligible in the period of which we treat. While the 2,000 acres which 
he was " to be restored unto," in consideration of his services " beyond the 
seas," never came into his possession up to the moment of his death ;* nor 
is there any evidence that this grant of land became, at any subsequent 
period, the property of any other member of the family. 

Margaret, the youngest daughter of Sir Redmond, lived in Kilcash 
Castle, and witnessed strange vicissitudes in the history of her family and 
country. She never married. Her mother was of the Ormond Butlers ; 
and it is curious what a fascination her " Kinsmen," the young Butlers, 
exercised over her, if we judge by the affectionate language and substantial 
legacies in her Will, in their favour. The more distant and poorer 
relations of her own name, whom perhaps she looked down upon as 
" odious approximations," were passed over ; but, unquestionably, she was 
much indebted to the Butlers for affording her so safe and comfortable a 
retreat, when Fethard, under the new regime, became too hot for any of 
the name of Everard. She died in 1753, and her remains were interred 
" in the Vault, at Kilcash Church." 

Sir John Everard, Bart,, of Fethard, son of Sir Eedmond, was 
married to Ellen Butler, eldest daughter of Pierce, Lord Cahir. He was 
Captain of the regiment of Horse commanded by Colonel Nicholas 
Purcell; was present at the Boyne ; and was killed at the battle of Aughrim, 
in 1691. He was one of the attainted officers of the service of Kino- 
James. The greater portion of his property after this was confiscated, but 
a miserable remnant passed to his son. Sir Redmond, and certain interests 
in smaller portions were, later on, allowed to Claimantsf of his kindred. 
The great bulk of the property passed by sale or grants into strange hands. ■ 
This Sir Redmond was the last of the Baronets of the family. He was 
married and had no issue. He lived for some years in Fethard, in the 
Castle built by him opposite the family mansion from which he had been 
ousted by the victorious Williamite soldiers. This " new" Castle, situated 
on the bank of the stream " dashanly,"J is now a ruin. 

In the Irish Parliament Sir Redmond represented the co. Tipperary, 
in the early part of the last century, the borough of Fethard, and the 
city of Kilkenny. With some others he strove to prevent the Enactment 
of the Penal Laws. Finding all efforts unavailing, and foreseeing the 
inevitable, he left the country, and retired to France, where, in 1746, he 

In this paragraph the attention of the reader will be directed to the

dated 1624, Sir John made provision, also, for his son Gabriel's children, 
whose names were Geoffrey, Joseph, and Charles. He bequeathed to 
the heir of Gabriel property in the counties of Tipperary and Waterford. 
In his Will, and in Roll V. f. 27 of "Decrees of Innocents," the various 
townlands so bequeathed are mentioned. Geoffrey died in 1642, early 
in life, leaving behind a son James, only two years old. The minor's 
title to the property was admitted, but " the profits of the said estate 
were received by the nearest friends of Claimant, until the lands were 
seized by the usurped powers." The "nearest friends" were Joseph* 
and Charles ; but the former having renounced the world, and taken the 
habit of the Order of St. Francis, upon Charles, who previously had 
resided in Fethard, devolved the management of the estate and the 
charge of his nephew. Charles lived for a few years in that quarter and 
was married. His name appears amongst "the 1649 Officers;" and a 
superb monument erected to his memory may be still seen in the 
Churchyard at Churchtown, co. Waterford. James attained his majority 
in 1661, and lodged a petition on the " 6th Nov., 14*^ Charles II.," against 
some Cromwellian settlers who had taken possession of his property. 
Nearly two years after he succeeded in recovering possession, as appears, 
from the following decree issued on the 11th July, 16** Charles 11. :" 

" That Claimant be restored and that the Sheriffs of the several counties in which 
the lands lie do deliver the same to James Everard." 

He ranked as Captain in the Irish Arnw, and was rewarded for his 
loyalty to James II., by having his entire property confiscatedf by 
William III. His descendants, it is said, are still alive, and own " Chateau 
Everard," in the neighbourhood of Paris. From Charles, the grandson of 
Sir John, Knt., was descended Edmond Everard, of Carrigmore, Gent. 
(Will Prerogative, 1755). The representatives of this branch, living 
(1888), are a young barrister, Mr. James Power Everard, B.A., Athlone ; 
and Eev. John Everard, E. C. Adm., Clonmel. (See the " Everard" No. 1 
pedigree). There are two great branches of the Everards of Tipperary,

K. M. St07ie's Poems. 


We come now to consider the second and probably the elder branch 
of the family. In the "Molyneux" MS. f. iii. 27, p. 43, there are 
recorded six generations also of this branch of the Everard family. It 
is rather strange that the pedigree therein given ends with the name of 
a female — Mary Everard. At first sight this is misleading, and one 
might suppose that the male members of this line became extinct ; were 
it not that there is ample, clear, and positive evidence to the contrary, 
The writer in the MS. fixes the date of the death of Mary's father 
(Edward) on the " 29th May, 1637." Now it so happens that the Will 
of Mary's grandfather, who was also named Edward, is preserved in the 
Record Office, Dublin ; and in it the date of that Edward's death is set 
down as occurring on the " 29th March, 1637." No doubt of the authen- 
ticity or accuracy of that Will can for a moment be entertained, and 
hence we incline to the belief that the writer of the genealogy in the 
Molyneux MS. made two mistakes : first, by placing the on\y obit recorded 
by him after Edward " oge," the father of Mary ; and, second, by 
confounding the contracted form of March with May. Anyone who has 
any knowledge of such matters may easily conceive how readily an error 
may be committed in the registration of a pedigree. The wonder is, 
considering the havoc wrought by time, the missing deeds, the erasures 
in those extant, &c., &c., that so much information may be obtained. It 
may be well to note that Mary had three uncles, and that her grandfather 
states iu his Will (29th March, 1637), that, should his sons die without 
male issue, he then bequeathes liis property to " the heyers males of my late 
deceased father, James Everard." 

It is very plain, therefore, that at that time there was no lack of male 
representatives of this branch of the family. Edward (whose Will is on 
record) and his brother Thomas were two of the six witnesses to the Will 
(1624) of Sir John Everard. In that Will Sir John, in the most praise- 
worthy spirit and manner, makes provision for his poorer " Kinswomen," 
and cannot be accused of being unmindful of the " blood." 

It may be truly said, that in every generation from the first Nicholas 
of Fethard, there has been a host of male and female members of this 
line. Of these one of the most remarkable was James Everard of Fethard. 
He was Mayor of his native town when it was stormed by Cromwell. One 
of the sacred vessels used to this day in the Franciscan Church, Clonmel, 
was the gift of this James. He died in 1667, and his Will, bearing that 
elate, is preserved^ in the Record Office, Dublin. In it reference is made 
to several members of his family ; in fact, he mentions by name five male 
members, then living, and also speaks of his cousin, Sir Redmond Everard, 
Bart. The latter acknowledged the connection with his contemporaries ; 
for, in Sir Redmond's Will (1687) he also bequeathed, in certain contin- 
gencies, his property " to the heirs males of the said Sir John Everard's 
great-grandfather" Now, this "great-grandfather" was the oft-mentioned 
*' Nicholas," who was the common stock whence James, also sprang, and 
whom, therefore, as " head of the house," Sir Redmond constituted his 
heir. James had a brother named Redmond, who had a son Eimond : this 
latter, instead of Eimond, the son of Charles, may have been the grand- 
father of Edmond Everard, Carrigmore, gent. (1755). And George, who 


was another brother of the above-mentioned James,* had a grandson of 
the same name, — George, junior, who had the ill luck of having a brother- 
in-law, James Butler (father of Richard Butler, first Earl of Glengall), 
who seemed to have not much regard for the principles of justice. (See 
Bill, filed 21st August, 1706. " Palatinate Court, county Tipperary"). To 
this branch belonged his Grace, the Most Eev. Patrick Everard, Archbishop 
of Cashel and Emly ; who was born in Fethard, and was there taught 
Classics. He studied in the Irish College, Salamanca ;t was Eector of the 
Irish College in Paris, for ten years ; next became Vicar-General of the 
Diocese of Bordeaux; and afterwards conducted a School at Ulverstone, 
in Lancashire, England, for the education of the sons of English Catholic 
Gentlemen, in which the Pension ranged from £200 to £400 per annum. 
He was elected, in 1810, President of the College of Maynooth; and, in 
1814, was appointed Archbishopf by the Holy See. He died of fever, in 
Thurles, and his remains were interred in Cashel. 

Lucas Everard, who died in 1665, was the son of Marcus, who was a 
brother of Edward (1637). From a Bill filed in "Palatinate Court," 
county Tipperary, in February, 1678, it appears the above Lucas had a 
son Christopher, who was father of John Everard, of Fethard. From 
that Bill, also, the following extract is taken : " that James Butler and 
his wife, taking advantage of the minority of the said John, seized upon 
his property in and about Fethard, and still keep the same." Knaves 
were encouraged in their dishonesty by the fact, that the name of 
" Everard" was in very bad odour under the new Dynasty. 

The above John Everard of Fethard died in 1712, and his Will of 
that date, has been preserved in the Eecord Office, Dublin. He had four 
sons, but, though provision is made for the " Second," " third," and 
" fourth" son, the only name expressly mentioned in the Will is that of 
Eichard, the "eldest." One (probably Eichard) of the four sons of the 
said John Everard, of Fethard, had four sons — 1. John, of Clonmore, 
CO. Tipperary, whose issue is extinct ; 2. Eichard, of whom presently ; 
3. Patrick, of Eoscrea, co. Tipperary, who m. a Miss Kennedy and had a 
family, all of whom were, in 1883, living in America, save Martin Everard, 
living in 1883, s. p. ; 4. Philip, also of Clonmore, who had three sons — 
I.Thomas; 2. James, who emigrated to America; 3. Patrick, who had 
a son who was living (1883) in America. This Thomas, son of Philip, had 
three sons — 1. John Everard of Clonmore, living in 1883, who was m. and 
had a family; 2. Thomas Everard, m., living in 1883, and had a family; 
3. James Everard, who m. a Miss Leahy, and was (1883) living in Lough- 

* James : This James had a son, Piers, of Fethard, who was a distinguished Irish 
Officer, and took part in the Battle of Aughrim. The legal documents of a later 
pei'iod refer to that circumstance in very guarded terms: "That said Piers in or 
about the year 1C90 had occasion to go to the Province of Connaught and from 
thence to Limerick, where he died." 

t Salamanca: It is a remarkable fact, that the Four Irish Ecclesiastics who 
studied together in Salamanca, were afterwards four contemporary Catholic Archbishops 
in Ireland. 

X Archbishop : "When Dr. Everard was first appointed Archbishop it was to some 
see " in partibus ivfidcUum,'^ and as Coadjutor to Dr. Bray, Archbishop of Cashel and 
Emly, who lived for a few years after Dr. Everard's promotion.

* Edward and Thomas : In the Will (dated 1624) of Sir Jolin Evevard, who is 
No. 4 on the " Everard" (No. 1) pedigree, it is stated: "Concerning my purchased 
land in Cashell in way of Mortgage, I doe devise all the same to my cousins Edward 
Everard and Thomas Everard and their heirs to this intent, that with the issues and

issue, he bequeathed his property (in Will, dated 1637) " to the heyres males of my 
late deceas?ed father, James Everard," etc. 

t Anastace : This Anastace was left by her cousin Edmond Everard a fortune of 
£400. (Edmond at the time of his death (a.d. 1632), lived at Ballyboy, near Clogheen, 
the then castle of Sir Richard Everard, Bart., whom he appointed his sole executor). 

X Lwing : See insci'iption on Chalice in the Catholic Church of Clogheen. 
Lucas Everard obtained leases of farms from his cousin Sir. Richard Everard, Bart.,

Everard, who was the second President of Maynooth College, for several years, and 
afterwards Archbishop of Cashel and Emly. This (Catholic) Archbishop Everard 
was b. A.D. 1752, and d. 1820. It was he that, out of his own private means, founded 
the present College of St. Patrick, Thurles, which takes its name from him.

t Fcaj: For further information respecting this family, see Manning and Bray's 
burrey ; De lioque s Antknt Maisons de la_ Normandy— Attiole " Du Fay ;" Calendar 


Charters, and, even at the present day, the family has many representa- 
tives amongst the GaUic Mobility. 

The Viscounts De Latour Maubourg (from whom sprung the Princes 
D'Auvergne) are stated " to have assumed their sirname from the Lord- 
ship of Fay, in Picardy, of which they were possessed at least as early as 
the year 1000 ;" while the Counts Mauleveru, the Counts De La-Grange, 
the Viscounts De La Faye De Bourbonais and Du Fai de Savernay, 
as well as the Irish Branch now under consideration, appear to have 
assumed theirs from the Fief of Fay, in the parish of St. Honorine-Du- 
Fay, in Normandy, which was possessed by the family at an equally 
remote period. 

Du Conge suggests that the local name "Fay" signified, anciently, a 
Beech or Oak-wood ; and the Abbey of Silly, which was situate in the 
great forest of St. Andre-en-GoufFeriu, near Fallaise, is styled indifferently 
in ancient documents " De Silvia," " De Bosco," and " De Faya." To 
this Abbey in 1202 Garinus, Lord of Bello-Altari, granted certain lands 
" heretofore held by W. De Mandeville, Earl of Essex, of Eobert De Fay,^ 
father of the said Garinus, as of his Fief of Bello Altari," 

To the neighbouring Abbey of St. Andre-en-Gouflferin, Burgundian Du 
Fay, Lady of Harrier, made grants of Lands: as did in 1225 Nicote, 
sister of Eaoul Du Fay, which the latter confirmed, " as dependant on 
his Fief of Fay, in the parish of St. Honoriue-Du-Fay," while Helie Du 
Fay made a similar confirmation to the same Abbey, of lands in Ms Fief 
of Fay-du-Pre, in the parish of Villy. 

The first of the name we meet in England is Eadulphus or Ralph De 
Fay, or De La Fay, to whom Henry H. in 1154 granted the extensive 
Manor of Bromley, in Surrey. He held until the 19th of Henry 11.^ 
when, taking part with Prince Henry against his father, he was disseized, 
and Bromley was granted to Baldwin De Bethune. Afterwards it was again 
escheated, when King John by charter, dated at Poitou, 4th Dec, 1199, 
gi^anted it to Ralph De Fay, the son, who, with many members of his 
family, was then engaged in that monarch's service in France. 

This Ralph married Beatrix, sister and co-heir of Stephen De 

of Close Rolls, ia Tower of London ; MS. Pedigrees, in Trinity College, Dublin j. 

There was a branch of this family seated in the county Kildare, which for many 
generations occupied the position of political agents and confidential trustees to the 
Earls of Kildare. The head of this family, Nicholas Fay of Ballinure, was specially 
exempted from pardon for life or estate by Cromwell. Another branch of the family 
was seated at Trumroe, in Westmeath, which was similarly "favoured." Both these 
families appear to have recovered some part of their estates at the Restoration ; as 
George Fay, of Jamestown, in the Queen's County, mortgaged Ballinure in 1730 ; 
and George Fay, of Castlepollard, whose Will is dated in the same year, and preserved 
in the Registry of Deeds Office, leaves a conditional bequest to his brother Michael 
" in case I (the Testator) should hereafter enjoy my estate of Tromroy ;" a condition 
of hope not unusual in the Jacobite Wills of the period. 

This George was brother of the gallant Geoffrey Fay, Captain in Sir Neil O'Neil's 
Eegiment of Horse, who gave his name to " Fay's Ford," on the Boyne, and who was 
popularly said to be the last man (aided by his brothers) who opposed the passage of 
the Williamite Army. Jeffrey was killed at the Battle of Assanno, in Italy, in 1714. 
— See Letter preserved in the Archives of the Franciscan Convent, Merchant's Quay, 


Turnham, Seneschal of Poictou, and, dying in 1222, left by her, who 
remained with Hugh De Plaiz — John De Fay, his heir, on whose death 
s. p. in 1241, the Manor of Bromley passed to his sister Maud, who 
married, first, William De Clere, and, secondly, William De Braiose; and 
Philipa, who married William De Neville. 

In 1215 King John commands De Podio, Seneschal of Angoul^me, 
"That you without delay cause to be seized into our hands, the land 
which belonged to William De Mastad, which came to our beloved and 
faithful William De Fay, in right of his wife, daughter and heir of the 
said William De Mastad." In 1215, the said William De Fay, and Ralph, 
his brother, had a grant of land in Hampshire, heretofore the estate of 
Robert De Mandville. In the same year King John granted to the said 
William De Fay, the lands of Barrentin, Roumare, St. Jean-du-Cardonett, 
and St. Agnes, in Normandy, a grant which was subsequently confirmed 
by Philip Augustus. 

In 1225, William De Fay, electing to remain in Normandy, his lands 
at Polehampton, Hampshire, were confiscated. 

In 1208, King John confirms to "Peter De Fay, our Burgess of 
Rochelle, the reasonable gift made him by Ralph De Fay, of the office of 
' Baker and Pasturer' of Rochelle, and of the Hundred Shillings rent in 
the ' Minages' of Rochelle, and of Forty Shillings rent out of the house in 
Rochelle, wherein Elias Gasket formerly had an Exchange." 

The first mention of the name which we have discovered in Ireland, 
is in 1219, when Sir Richard De Fay, Knight of De Lacy, Lord of Meath, 
was sent by the latter on a mission to the King. 

^ About this time, Richard De Fay was seized of Mayneston, in Hereford- 
shire, which he held of the Lord John De Monmouth, by ancient 
enfeoffment. In 1220, Richard and Walter De Fay witness charters of 
the De Monmouth family, of which House, we may here observe, was 
Rosa De Monmouth, the first wife of Hugh De Lacy, the " Conqueror" of 

In 1281, the King notifies that Richard De Fay, remaining in Ireland, 
by the King's Licence, had attorned before him, Geoffreys Te Ireys, and 
Richard De Pickeyleigh. (Pickeyleigh adjoins Maynestown in all pleas and 
plaints in England.) 

In 1289, Theobald Le Verdon, Lord of the Western moiety of Meath, 
had a, suit with Richard De Fay, concerning the lands of Tyrlicken, or 
Tyrkillen, in that county. During the course of the proceedings it was 
expressly stated, " that De Fay was then abroad in the King's wars." 

In 1290, George De Fay was seized of premises in Kilmer, Donore, 
and Glackmorne, in the Liberty of Trim, in right of his wife Isabella, 
daughter of Richard Fitz John, the fifth Baron of Delvin. In 1339, 
Walter Fitz George De Fay had a suit with his grandmother, Eglantine, 
widow of Lord Delvin, concerning the above lands, which she claimed as 
daughter and heir of William Deweswell, of Deweswellstown, co. Dublin, 
and Kilmer, co. Meath. 

Shortly after this, John Engelande (a trustee) conveyed to Richard 
Fitz George De Fay, the estate of Comerstown, in the Barony of Fore, and 
of Mayestown, in the Barony of Moyashell, in Tail Male; with remainder 
to Roger De Fay— which Roger De Fay succeeded ; and, dying before 


1380, was seized, inter alios, of Comerstown, BalUndrinan, and Bartanstoim.*' 
In 1384, his son, John Fitz Ro.ser Fay of Dernegara, was Plaintiff in a 
suit at Trim against George Fitz Walter Fay and Philip Tuite for 
having unlawfully disseized him of the above lands, and a verdict was 
given in his favour ; whereupon, the said George Fitz Walter appealed on 
the grounds that the Jury Avho tried the case had not been fa'irly 
impanelled, " by reason that Thomas Chamber, the Sheriff, had taken to 
wife Anne Dardis, cousin of the said John Fay." Thereupon a new Jury 
was ordered to be impanelled, by the Keeper of the King's Pleas, which 
confirmed the verdict of the first, — mitigating, however, the damages 
against George Fitz AValter Fay, "by reason of his minority." ° 

In 1465, the Crown having raised some question as to the title of 
James Fay (son and heir of John Fitz Eoger) to the Comerstown estate, 
he proved it (under the conveyance made by John Engelande above cited) 
in a Parliament held in Trim in that year, in Drogheda in 1468, and in 
Dublin in 1469. He complains bitterly at being harassed by this inquiry 
" that his lands were situate on the Marches, and that he had great 
' trouble defending them against his own and the King's enemies." This 
James, it is presumed, v/as father of George Fay, who died in 1514 
seized of Comerstown and Dernegara, as appears from an Inquisition pod 
mortem, taken at Duleek in that year ; ancl from whom the Pedigree is 
carried down to the present day, as follows : 

1. George Fay of Dernegara, in 
Westmeath, born 1435, ditd May,

was engaged in the rebellion of 
"Silken Thomas;" and, dying in 
1548, was succeeded by his son :

aged 40, and married to Joan Fitz- 
gerald, by whom he had George, 
James of Comerstown, and Chris- 

jtopher. He was Sheriff of West 
iMeath in 1565, and died 1576.

the sum of £1,000 by Richard Barnewall, Darby Dunn, Michael Hall and Nicholas 
Bamewall, all of the city of Dublin. From his grandson, and namesake, Thomas Fay 
of Annsbrook, and Mayo House, county Meath, who settled in Cavanin 1780, descend

And time may wear away the tribe that stood the battle shock ; 
But, ever sure, while one is left of all that honoured race. 
In front of Ireland's chivalry is that Fitzgerald's place ; 
And, though the last were dead and gone, how many a field and town, 
From Thomas-Court to Abbeyfeale, would cherish their renown, 
And men would say of valour's rise, or ancient power's decline, 
" Twill never soar, it never shone, as did the Geraldiue."

carried him up to the steeple of 
Tralee, where he unswaddled him, 
cleaning and dressing him as he

16. Gerald : the 16th Earl. 

17. James, the 17th Earl; 
tainted in 1601 ; nephew of 
16th Earl; was commonly called 
the " Siigan Earl," by the English,! 
but his title and claim to the Earl- 
dom of Desmond were fully recog-; 
nised by the Irish people. In 1598,^ 
this James, exasperated at seeingi 
his ancestral territories in the hands 
of the English settlers, and at the 
efforts made to extirpate Catholicism,! 
he joined the famous Hugh O'Neilll 
in his war against Queen Elizabeth, 
and by him was created an " Earl." 
Hence was he called the Sugan Earl, 
which means " Earl of Straw," be- 
cause the title was not conferred or 
recognised by the English authori- 
ties in Ireland. The Desmond, 
Pedigi'ee states of him: " Apart fromi| 
the matter of his rebellion, he evert 
proved himself an honourable, 
truthful, and humane man." Cox 
says that this James, who was son: 
of Thomas, brother of Gerald, the 

tliat valuable Journal, for January, 1880, is also inserted an interesting paper relating 
to ' ' The Geraldines of Desmond." While the writer of that paper relies on the 
accuracy of that portion of our Annals which relates to the Geraldine family, he treats 
as myths those portions of the Annals which relate to the early inhabitants of Ireland. 
He says : " Had they (our ancient Irish annalists) understood that . . . our island 
home was at one time an integi-al part of the European continent, they might have 
spared us their myths about its aboriginal inhabitants." But, had the worthy writer 
of that paper made himself more fully conversant with the "teachings of geology" to 
■vrhich he alludes, he would find that, for the period when Ireland ivas an integral 
part of the European continent, we must go much farther back into the past than thei 
Mammal period of the Creation ! — See pp. 1 2, of Vol. I. of this Edition. 



I6th Earl, was one of the handsomest 
nen of his time. Though thrice m., 
tie left no descendants. His 
brother John went to Spain in 1603, 
»7here he was styled " Conde de 
Desmond;" he was living in 1615, 
and died at Barcelona. This John 
had a son named Gerald, who, in 
1632, died in the service of his 
''Caesarian Majesty." 

Thomas, tenth Earl of Ormond, 
In right of his mother Joan Fitz- 
gerald, daughter of the twelfth Earl 
f)f Desmond, claimed the Earldom 
kfter the death and attainder of all 
irhe heirs male. When his daughter 
vas married to King James the 
First's Scotch favourite. Sir Eichard. 
f'reston, the title of "Earl of Des- 
mond" was conferred on him. When 
.he only child of Sir Richard 
i*reston, a daughter, was about to 
)e married to the son of the Earl of 
Denbigh, the title was passed to the 
ntended bridegroom. Although the 
parriage never took place, yet the 
itle was retained, and is still held

fourteen Lords of Slane died of some 

Colonel Christopher Fleming, the 
23rd Lord Slane, was son of Kandal, 
who was conspicuous for his loyalty 
to Charles I., during the Common- 
wealth rule in Ireland ; and said 
Christopher was no less faithful to 
the cause of King James II. He 
sat as one of the Peers in James's 
Irish Parliament, in 1689 ; com- 
manded a family regiment in his 
service ; and with it Fought, during 
the Revolutionary war, at Derry, 
the Boyne, and Aughrim where he 
was taken prisoner. He was, of 
course, attainted by the Williamite 
party, and his estates, which were 
valued at £25,000 a year, were for 
most part granted by King William, 
to De Ginkel, the victor of Aughrim; 
his wife, the Lady Slane, getting 
only £200 a year out of them during 
her husband's life, and £800, a year, 
at his decease. 

Released from prison, Lord Slane 
followed the exiled King James to 
France, where he resided in poverty 
till 1708, when, considering himself 
badly used by the Jacobite Court, 
he returned to England. Queen 
Anne is said to have restored him to 

his honours, but not to his estates. 
He was, however, allowed a pension 
of £500 a year, and a regiment on 
the Irish Establishment. In 1713, 
he was advanced to the dignity of 
"ViscountLongford," but, according 
to Dalton, no patent issued. He died 
in 1726, and was buried in the tomb 
of the MacDonnells, Earls of An- 
trim, in the Abbey of Bonnamargy 
(with which family he was connected 
by blood), leaving an only daughter 
Helen, who died in Paris, on the 
7th August, 1748, unmarried. And 
so ended the line of the Barons of 
Slane, in the case of the above 
mentioned Colonel Christopher 
Fleming, Lord Slane. 

The title, however, appears to 
have been kept up for a short time 
longer by his brother Henry (who 
was a Colonel in Galmoy's horse), 
and by Henry's descendants. Thio 
Henry had a son William (d. 1747), 
who had a son Christopher, who 
d. s. p. in 1772. 

Playfair {Fu7\ Ixxv.) says that ' 
Richard Fleming, of Slahalmack, 
was the second son of the last Baron 
of Slane. In consequence of the 
last Baron's decease without male 
issue, and the Barony being held by 
tenure, the title descended to his 
daughter Bridget.

This family name has been modernized Gavin, Gevin, Givin, and Given, 
We have traced the Givin branch of the family to Eobert Givin, who was 
born at Lisconnan, near Deerock, county Antrim, who died in 1793, and 
was buried in Derrykeighan. His grandfather settled in Ireland at the 
time of the "Ulster Plantation," temp. King James I. This Robert 
married, and had :

died in 1825, and was also buried in 
Derrykeighan. He married, and

ancestors, a Knight Crusader, accompanied Eichard Coeiir de Lion to 
Palestine, in his expedition against the Saracens, and was placed in com- 
mand of a small outpost of the Christian army. Whilst occupying this 
position, the said Knight was closely invested by the Saracens, and, after 
many days hard fighting, he was on the point of being obliged to surrender, 
%vhen the timely arrival of King Richard hij icater, saved the small Christian 
garrison. In remembrance of this event the Knight Crusader obtained 
permission to take for his Crest the royal lion of Cceur de Lion, rampant, 
holding in his paws a scollop shell, indicating a Crusader; and adopted for 
his Motto — Auxilium ex oceano (or aid from the deep) : signifyino- the means 
(across or out of the water) by which he was delivered from the Saracens. 

Traditional history is not always very precise, and in this instance the 
name of the town or^ outpost occupied by our Knight Crusader is not 
mentioned; but an historical confirmation of this tradition is given in 
Lingard's History of England, under A.D. 1192, where it is said that the 
outpost occupied by a portion of the Christian army was the town of Jaffa, 
which was taken by the Saracens, and the defenders were driven to the 
citadel. At the first intelligence of this event, King Richard ordered a 
portion of his army to move by land, while he hastened by sea, in galleys 
On his arrival before the town of Jaffa, King Richard, in his anxiety to 
relieve the besieged garrison, j^hmged into the icater, followed by his com- 
panions. The Saracens retired at the approach of his army and the 
besieged Christians were thus saved. ' 

This family is connected by marriage with many of the principal 
famdies m the county Mayo, namely, those of Blake, O'Donnell, Bingh^ 
Nash, and Carter. ' 

Thomas Gibbons, of Inver, Erris, county Mayo, a younger son of David 
who is No. 18 on the " Fitzgibbon" pedigree, and who was transplanted 
to Connaught by Ohver Cromwell, in 1653, was the ancestor of this branch 
of that family :

quence attainted, but event-

In the " Roberston" genealogy (pp. 769, Vol. I) the descent of this family 
is clearly traced from Malcolm III., King of Scotland, down to Andrew 
Roberston, Provost of Dingwall, who was the maternal grandfather of 
(amongst other children) the Right Hon. William Ewart Gladstone, of 
Hawarden, in Flintshire, M.P., and First Lord of the Treasury, in 1886. 
This sirname was originally Gledstaine ("Gleadh:" Irish, tricks, humour/ 
" stain :" tin or latten), and was more lately rendered Gladstones. It was 
the father of the Premier that first omitted the final s from the name, and 
wrote it Gladstone, In the male line, so far as we can trace it, the genealogy 
of the family is, as follows : 

1. John Gladstones, of Toft- 
Combes, Biggar, in Lanarkshire, 

2. Thomas Gladstones, of Leith : 
his younger son : d. 1809. 

3. Sir John Gladstone, of Fasque, 
Kincardineshire : his eldest son : 

born Dec, 1764 ; created a Baronet 
18th July, 1846 ; first of the family 
that omitted the final s in his 
name. Sir John was twice married : 
first, in 1792, to Jane (d. s. p. in 
1798), dau. of Joseph Hall, Esq., 
of Liverpool : and, secondly, in 

* Richard : This Eichard, after having been for many years confined as a State 
prisoner, on suspicion of having been actively engaged as one of the * United Irishman," 
of that period, died ruined.

Raymond le Gros, a son of William Fitzgerald, who is No. 4 on the 
" Fitzmaurice" pedigree, was, or, rather his son Hamon de la (^ros, was . 
the ancestor of Grace, in the county Kilkenny. 

Sir John le Gros (surnamed Cries iarann, or " the n^on-belted ) was 
Baron of Courtstown and lord of -Grace's Country," in the county Kil- 
kenny, and was living in 1534. He married Catherine, daughter of Fierce, 
Lord Le Poer, of Curraghmore, county Wateiford, and had two sons : 
1. John, who was the ancestor of the senior or Barons of Courtstown branch 
of the family ; and 2. Sir Oliver, Knight, of Ballylinch and Legan Castles, 
county Kilkenny, who was Lord of Carney, Tipperary, and M.F. tor that ^ 
county in 1559. From said Sir Oliver descended the Grace families ot: 
Shanganagh (or Gracefield) in the Queen's County; and that ot Mantagh, 
(or Mantua), near Elphin, in the county Roscommon.— bee l^race, 
No. 3. 

M-e have taken the following stanza, which bears testimony to that lady's amiable 

disposition : 

" Whenever the worthless annoy d her, 
She'd pity the wretch and forgive ; 
And she lovingly did good for evil, 
To show us the true way to live. 
From her ardour to make others happy, 

Did her own gentle happiness flow, 
And where she found wretches in trouble 
She took a full share of their woe."

Sir Oliver Grace, younger son of Sir John le Gros who (see the 

* Rolert : Colonel Richard Grace, the younger son of Robert Grace, Baron of 
Courtstown, was born in the early part of the 17th century. He resided at Sloyelly 
Castle, Queen's County, and served King Charles L, in England, until the surrender 
of Oxford, in 1646 ; he then returned to Ireland, and was for some years engaged in 
the war of 1641-1652. He is referred to in Sta'e Papers as being at the head of 3,000 
men, harassing the ParUamentary troops— now in Wicklow, and again beyond the 
Shannon. In 1652 a reward of £300 was by the Eoglish Government set upon his 
head ; yet, at the conclusion of the war, he was permitted to enter the Spanish service 
with 1,200 of his men. After the Restoration he was appointed Chamberlain to the 
Duke of York. When James II. came to Ireland, Grace was appointed Governor of 
Athlone, with a garrison of three regiments of foot, and eleven troops of cavalry. After 
the battle of the Boyne, Athlone was invested by General Douglas with ten regiments 
of foot, and five of horse ; but Grace, having burnt the English portion of the town, 
and broken down the bridge, defended the Connaught portion of the town with 
indomitable spirit. When called on to surrender, he fired a pistol over the messenger's 
head, and declared : " These are my terms ; these only will I give or receive ; and, 
when my provisions are consumed, I will defend till I eat my old boots." At the end 
of a week, Douglas was obliged to draw ofi", with the loss of 400 men. The town was 
again invested by De Ginkell in 169). St. Ruth had meanwhile obliged Grace to 
exchange three of his veteran regiments for inferior French troops ; nevertheless, he 
made a heroic defence under St. Ruth, and on the 30th June, 1691, after De Ginkell's 
passage of the Shannon and the capture of the citadel on the Connaught side. Colonel 
Orace's body was found under the ruins. 

At the siege of Athlone, Colonel the Hon. Richard Grace, here mentioned, was 
among the killed ; Colonels Art Oge MacMahon, and O'Gara, among the wounded ; 
and Brig. -General Maxwell, among the prisoners. At Aughrim, Uolonel O'Donnellan 
was wounded ; and among the slain were O'Kelly of iVIullaghmore, Lord Galway, and 
Stackpole— all fighting for King James II.

GRAHAM. (No. 1.) 

OJ Ireland. 

In Northern Notes and Queries (Yol. L, No. 6, p. 119; September, 1887. 
Edited by the Rev. A. W. Cornelius Hallen, M.A. ; and Published at 
Edinburgh by David Douglas), we read : 

" It will be seen that the Grahams at an early date were troublesome 
inhabitants of the Borders. Nothing is said* to show whether they were 
descended from the Scottish family of the name, or whether — which seems 
just as likely — the Scottish house was of Border origin . . . It is certain 
that during the sixteenth century the Grahams were both numerous and 
warlike . . . The branch of the family to which attention will, however, 
be chiefly drawn in these Notes is that of Mote. The first Graham of Mote 
we have been able to trace is Fergus, to whom a grant of aims was made 
in 1583." Again, ibid., p. 152, Vol. I., No. 7, we read : 

" We have consulted Mr. W. Bruce Armstrong's History of Liddisdale, 
Mr. Stoddart's Scottish Arms, 10th Rep. of Hist. MS. Com., and such 
volumes of the Calendar of State Papers as are likely to throw any light on 
the history of the Grahams of Mote. Nothing can be learned of the 
Grahams of the Border prior to 1527 ; Mr. Stoddart's conjecture is that 
they came from the Dryfe in Dumfriesshire. In 1528 they were amongst 
the most troublesome of the Liddisdale Borderers. William Graham of 
Stuble, called ' Lang Willie,' was most probably from Arthuret. {Hist. 
Lid., p. 247, n.) Stuble seems to have been in the Armstrong country ; 
but with most of the Armstrongs the Grahams were at constant strife. 
Richard Graham of Esk, eldest son of * Lang Willie,' however, married an 
Armstrong, and was imprisoned in Carlisle Castle on a charge of giving 
information to the family of an attack on them planned by Lord Dacre, 
Warden of the West Marches. He succeeded in clearing himself of the 
charge, and proving it against a member of the family of Storie of Netherby 
and Mote. On his release from Carlisle Castle, he, with Fergus, his 
brother next in age, and five younger ones (all, however, then old enough 
to bear arms), expelled the Stories from their lands, which they shared 
amongst themselves . . . 

"In 1606 the descendants of Richard of Netherby were banished to 
Ireland. Their land was forfeited, and was sold in 1629 to Richard Graham, 
second son of Richard Graham, of Plomp, son of Matthew Graham of Spring- 
hill, beyond which it is impossible to trace the present family of Graham 
of Esk and Netherby. Stoddart rejects as untenable the tradition that 
this Border family was descended from John Graham ' of the bright sword,' 
grandson of Mahse, Earl of Strathearn, for it has been clearly proved that

he died without legitimate male issue.* Eeturning to the family of Mote, 
Fergus had at least two sons : Eoger or Richard, who went to Ireland, where 
in 1565 he had a grant of the advowson of Whitechurch, co. Kildare, which 
was in 1633 in the possession of William Graham, a son of his nephew Sir 
Richard ; and Arthur Graham of Mote, probably the other brother, who 
had several children. Of these Fergus went to Ireland before the general 
break-up of the houses of Netherby and Mote. In 1602 he was in receipt 
of a yearly pension of £30, being described as * an old servitor' of the Crown. 
His two sons, Richard and George, had by this time distinguished them- 
selves as valiant soldiers, and the eldest had already received knighthood 
(10th March, 1600), an honour which was soon after (25th July, 1603) 
conferred on the younger brother. In 1606 (Careiv Facers) we find a list 
of Grahams who arrived in Dublin, part of the great body of the clan 
removed by James VI. to Ireland (or James I. of England), and who 
settled in various parts of the country. A comparison of this list with an 
incomplete one of those sent from Cumberland given {Hist. MS. Rep. 1885) , 
enables me to present a tentative pedigree, brought down to A.D. 1606), of 
the descendants of the two elder sons of ' Lang Willie' Graham of Stuble. 
"From the History of Liddisdale it is evident that the Grahams of 
Netherby and Mote were regarded as chief men in the clan, and the removal 
of all the members of these two houses in 1606 doubtless proved a most 
effectual cure for the troubles that had existed. The union of the Crowns 
of Eno-land and Scotland had brought the Borders into a closer grip of the 
law than they had ever felt. On north and south their neighbours were 
no lono-er subjects of two kings, often at war with each other, but of one 
who most wisely determined to root out a state of things intolerable in the 
middle of his kingdom, however convenient it might at times have proved 
when on the borders of it." 


William Graham of Stuble, who was called "Lang Willie," came to 
Netherby from Arthuret, county Cumberland. He married and had eight 
sons : — 1. Richard ; 2. Fergus, of Mote ; 3. Thomas ; 4. William ; 5. John ; 
6. Hugh ; 7 and 8 — names unknown. These were all of full age in 1528 : 

I. Richard, of Esk and of Netli- III. Thomas : third son of "Lang

Sir Edward's second wife was

3. Sir Thomas Harris, Knt. ; son

* Harris : Walter Harris, LL.D., one of the most distinguished of Irish anti- 
' quarian writers, and the editor of Sir James Ware's works, was bora at Mountmellick, 
^ late in the 17th century. Although expelled from Trinity College in early life for 
participation in a riot, the degree of LL.D. was afterwards conferred on him for his 
services to Irish historical research and archseology. He mar. a great-granddaughter 
of Sir James Ware, and thereby inherited his MSS. ; and, possessed of competence, 
he devoted his life to literary pursuits. His principal works were : History of the Life 
and Reign of King William III. (Dublin : 1745) ; Hibernica : a collection of eleven 
interesting and important tracts relating to Ireland (Dublin : 1749). The great work 
by which he has earned the grateful remembrance of all the students of Irish history, 
is his translation and expansion of the principal works of Sir James Ware, published 
in two volumes folio in Dublin, between 1739 and 1746. Ware's Lives of the bishops, 
which in the English translation of 1705 occupies about 200 pages, Harris has expanded 
to 660 ; the Antiquities of Ireland he has expanded from 154 to 2S6 pages j and the 
meagre notices of Irish Writers, from 42 to 363 pages. Of Ware's Annals of Ireland 
he doubtless intended to make a third volume (all the early editions of Harris's Ware 
are noted on title pages as three volumes). Harris died 4th July, 1761. His History 
and Antiquities of the City of Dublin, which he left in manuscript, appeared in 1766. 
Some of his MSS. are preserved in Armagh Library, whilst the majority were pur- 
chased from his widow by the Irish Parliament for £500. They may now be consulted 
in the Library of the Royal Dublin Society. They occupy twenty volumes closely 
written, almost entirely in Harris's hand — in themselves a monument of his indefati- 
gable industry and research. He was a most laborious copyist, and much of these 
materials are copied from printed books. Particulars of the contents of these MSS. will 
be found in Notes and Queries, 2nd Series ; while of his printed works ample notices 
are given, under the title " Ware," by Allibone and Lowndes Webb.

This family is descended from Sir Hugh Hussey, who came to Ireland 
temj). Henry II. ; and settled in the county Meath. 

In the late Archdeacon Rowan's interesting volume, entitled Lal:e Lore, 
there is an account of Maurice Hussey, who was JM.P. for Tralee in the 
Parliament of James 11. , as well as Lieutenant-Colonel of MacEUigott's 
Regiment. He was married to a daughter of Sir Edward Hales, Bart., who 
was afterwards raised to an Earldom. 

Lieutenant-Colonel Maurice Hussey's military career is not recorded 
in the Archdeacon's Memoir ; but he gives a portion of his Will from the 
Consistorial Registry of the diocese, which shows that Hussey died in 
1714, and directs that he shall be buried in his vault at Kilugus, clothed 
in the habit of St. Francis, " at night, if torches, lights, and lanthornsmay 
be had." 

The Archdeacon adds that he could never find out to which of the once 
numerous branches of the Hussey family this Colonel belonged ; and, 
further, that he left no direct representative.

This Mayo family is descended from Jordan De Coiircy, who (see the " De 
Courcy" genealogy, ante,) was a younger brother of Sir John De Courcy, 
the first Earl of Ulster ; from him they derive the sirname UacJordan, now 
Jordan, ^yhen, however, the first of the family came to Ireland with the 
English invaders, a.d. 1168 (or, according to Lodge, and De Burgo, in 
1169), they were known by the name De Exeter, because they came from 
Exonia or Exeter, in England ; but when, to be *' as Irish as the Irish 
themselves," the descendants of the Anglo-Norman invaders of Ireland 
began to assume Irish patronymics, the De Exeters called themselves 
*' MacJordan," after their ancestor Jordan De Courcy, above mentioned. 

Jordan De Courcy or Jordan Teutonicus, as he was also called, was, in 
1197, killed by an Irish retainer; leaving many sons, two of whom were 
slain while striving to protect their uncle, the first Earl of Ulster, from the 
attacks of De Lacy's followers in the churchyard of Downpatrick, as stated 
in the " De Courcy" genealogy. 

In Vol. II., p. 59, Sect. 3, of The Antiquities of Ireland, by Sir James 
Ware, revised by Walter Harris, we find that : 

" The De Exonias or De Exeters submitted to be called MacJordans, from one 
Jordan De Exonia, who was the first founder of the family." 

The "Jordan" portion of the family name originated, it is said, in the 
fact that Jordan De Courcy went as standard-bearer with the English 
Crusaders to the Holy Land, and, in a great battle which took place 
between the Christians and the Saracens on the banks of the river Jordan, 
was so vigorously attacked by the Saracen host, that on three or four 
occasions his standard, which was the Banner of the Cross, almost 
disappeared from the view of the Christians, who, therefore, greatly feared 
for his safety; but, from his extraordinary strength, and the help he 
received from his followers, De Courcy re-appeared with his standard, as 
if miraculously, and on each occasion dealt destruction to the enemy. 
Hence the adoption by his descendants, the De Exeters, of the name 
Jordan, in memory of their ancestor's remarkable prowess on that occasion ; 
and the addition of the Cross, Crosslet, and Lion to their Arms, with the 
Motto, Percussus resurgo. According to Mill's History of the Crusades, 
Vol. I., Third Edition (1822), two brothers, William and Alberic De 
Grantmesnil, who were closely connected by marriage with the De Courcy 
family in England, went to the Holy Land,* and greatly distinguished 

* Holy Land : From the many pious associations connected with Palestine, 
exclusive of the Crusades, Christians from other nations went there in the middle ages 
to perform Pilgrimages. Members of some of the ancient Irish families went there 
for that purpose. Under a.d. 1224, the Four Masters say : 

" Hugh O'Connor, of Maonmoy, died on his journey home from Jerusalem, on the 
River" (Jordan). 

Aud, under a.d, 1231, they also say : 

"Ualgarg O'Rourke, lord of Brefney, diel on his Pilgrimage to the River' 
< Jordan). 


themselves during the Crusades. It is believed that Jordan De Courcy 
accompanied those two brothers, as a Crusader ; and, on his return to 
England, remained some time in Germany : and that hence the adfix 
Teiitonicus to his name, as in the case of Balderic, one of his ancestors, 
mentioned in the " De Courcy" genealogy. It is here worthy of remark 
that " Jordan Teutonicus" was also the name of the Dominican Monk who 
succeeded St. Dominic, as General or Provincial of that Order. De Burgo 
states in cap. 3 of his Hibernia Dominicana : 

"Anno Domini 1220 sint celebratum Bononia primiim Capitulum Generale a B. 
Dominico, et Anno sequenti scilicet 1221 B. Dominicus secundum Capitulum Generale 
celebravit Bononia . . . in quo capitulo Frater Jordanus Teutonicus qui nondum 
in ordine annum compliverat factus est provincialis Lombardite." 

And again : 

" Frater Jordanus Teutonicus qui nondum in ordine annum compliverat factus est 
Provincialis Lombardiam fundatis jam per ordinem circiter sexaquinta couventibus 
qui in octo provinciam erat distiucti : scilicet Hispauiam, Provinciam Provincias, 
Franciam, Lombardiam Ilomanam, Teutoniam, Hungariam, et Angliam." 

In the Hibernia Dominicana* De Bargo says that the family came to 
Ireland in 1169 (" Henrico II. Rege"'), from Exonia, in England, and was 
therefore called I)e Exonia'\ or De Exeter : 

" Laudatum stirpem apud Anglos domicilium fixisse Exonige, Agri Dwoniensis 
(vulgo Devonshire) Civitatis Capitalis, a quo suum desumpsit cognomen ;" 

and that the name was afterwards changed to Dexter, Dexetra, and 
MacJordan ; the same as DeArcie has become Darcy and Devereux : 

" De Exonia, fere De Exeter, anglice per syncopen Dexter, hibemic^ MacJordan j 
sicut cognomina quae olim De Arcie seu Arcy ac De Eureux postea D'Arcy ac 
D'Em-eux, tandemque Darcy ac Devereux passim scribuntur." 

And De Burgo says that, in 1269, Richard De Exonia was Viceroy 
(Pro-regem) or Lord Deputy of Ireland : 

** . , , Eicbardum de Exonia, Pro-regem fuisse Hibernise, Anno 1269." 

To that fact, "Ware, Harris, and O'Heyne also bear testimony. 

The De Exeters made settlements in ancient Meath, where (see infra) 
they built the Castle of Castlejordan ; in the territorj^ of Galenga,J which 

* Hibernia Dominicana : In that great work we lind many references to the 
" IMacJordan" family, from which we extract the following : " Jordanus Teutonicus," 
" Jordanus De Exonia Athlethanse (anglic^ Athleathan) Dominicus," "Ex Anglica 
hac familia de Exonia, quae magni olim fuit nominis in hoc tractu multi, nunc 
Hibernico mor4 MacJordan, id est Jordan Filii appellantur." 

t Exonia : The name De Exonia is sometimes met as De Exon. The latter name 
would indicate that it derived from ExoN, the name given to the Commander of the 
Body-guard of the Royal Household. In Lodge we find that Robert, Lord of Courcy 
in Normandy, and an ancestor of this family, was (see the " De Courcy" genealogy, 
ante), Sewer or Steward of the household of King Henry I. of England, and of the 
household of his daughter the Empress Maude. 

J Oalenga : The Galenga territory here mentioned comprised the entire of the 
present Diocese of Ardagh ; and included the patrimonies of the famihes of O'Hara 
and O'Gara, whose tribe name was Oallenga. That name, or its anglicised form 


gave its name to the present barony of " G-allen," in the county of Mayo ; 
and in the north of Tirawley (now the barony of Tyrawley), in the said 
county, where, about five miles north of Killala, they founded in 1274 the 
Abbey of Eathbran, or, as it is now spelled, " Eafran."* 

Under a.d. 1247, in the Annals of the Four Masters, we find the De 
Exeter family name there first mentioned as " Siurtan Dexetra :" the 
word "Siurtan" being Irish for Jordan ; and under A.D. 1249, the name 
"Jordan."! In 1355, Stephen De Exeter fought for the O'Maddens 
against the Bourkes ; in 1394, "John, son of Meyler, was slain by the sons 
of John De Exeter;" in 1416, MacJordan De Exeter attacked O'Hara's 
sons and plundered the country, the people of the territory assembled 
against him, and he was defeated and slain ; in 1426, Richard MacJordan, 
of the " Wood," was taken prisoner by Owen, son of O'Flaherty, and was 
given up to MacJordan Dubh, by whom he was slain. In 1428 an incursion 
was made by MacJordan De Exeter into Tyrawley against Thomas Barrett 
and his sons; in 1472, the sons of MacJordan deserted (or strayed) from 
the army of Mac William Bourke, and all were slain except MacJordan ; 
in 1486, O'Donnell, of Tirconnell, mustered an array, entered Tyrawley, 
and took John MacJordan and others, prisoners, etc. 

Under a.d. 1253, the Four Masters say : 

" A Monastery t was foimded for the Dominicans at Athleathan, in Lieuey, by 
the De Exeters, Lords of Athleathan, barony of Gallen, and county of Mayo." 

"Gallen" (which was so late as 1537, called "MacJordan's Country"), derived its 
appellation from Cormac Gaileang, to whom the Irish Monarch Cormac MacArt, in 
the tbii d century, granted that territory. Cormac Gaileang, who was son of Teige, 
son of Cian, son of Olioll Olum, was a relative of King Cormac MacArt ; and was the 
ancestor of the " O'Hara" and " O'Gara" families. — See the"0'Hara" genealogy in 
Vol. I. of this Edition. 

* Rafran : Of that Abbey, De Burgo, in his Sih. Dom., says : 

" The family of Dexter, who afterwards took the name of MacJordan, founded a 
Monastery here for Dominican Friars, in 1274 ;" while in pp. 279-280 of that work, he 
also says : . _ ^ 

"De fundatore autem valde anceps Waragus ibidem aiens ; sunt qui caenobium 
canditum afferunt a familia de Exonia qui postmodum MacJordans ut Hibernise morem 
gererent se cognominarunt prout baud ita pridem exponibam." 

t Jordan : The several changes in this family name has rendered it difficult to 
arrange the history of the family : In 1273, we find the name "Jordan Dexetra ;" in 
1289, "De Exeters ;" in 1294, "De Exeters ;" in 1316, "Dexeter ;" in 1317, " Myler 
Dexeter," Lord of Athleathan; in 1836, " Jordan Dexeter ;" in 1340, " Jordan Roe 
MacCostello ;" in 1355, " Stephen MacJordan ;" in 1380, " Mac Jordan Dexeter," and 
" John Dexeter;" in 1381, the " Castle of Athleathan ;" in 1394, " John MacJordan" 
and " John Dexeter ;" in 1395, "MacJordan Dexeter" and "MacJordan;" in 1416, 
"MacJordan Dexeter;" in 1426, "Richard MacJordan;" in 1428, "MacJordan 
Dexeter;" in 1438, "Jordan;" in 1472, "MacJordan ;" in 1485, "Celia, daughter of 
MacJordan, the most exalted woman in Connaught, died ;" in 1486, " MacJordan ;" 
&c. For information respecting the Jordan family in England the reader is referred 
to Hume's and Smollett's TUstory of England. 

Jourdan, one of Napoleon the First's distinguished generals, is supposed to have 
been descended from the De Exeter Jordan family, of the barony of Gallen, and county 
of Mayo. In the Illustrations Historical, by Dalton, we find in Butler's regiment in 
King James the Second's Army List, the name JorfZa?i mentioned amongst the ensigns 
in that regiment. That officer emigrated to France with other Irish soldiers after the 
violation of the Treaty of Limerick (in 1691), and from him possibly descended the 
famous General Jourdan, above mentioned. 

X Monastery : That Monastery was in 1254 destroyed by fire, and rebuilt on 



Ware,* Vol. I., p. 407, says that Michael of Exeter, a member of this 
family, succeeded as bishop in 1289, and died in 1302. In p. 609 of same 
volume, Ware adds that the De Exeters or De Exonias assumed the name 
" MacJordan ;" and in p. 562, same volume, we find an ecclesiastic named 
"Jordan" (who died in 1434) mentioned as succeeding in 1431 as Bishop 
of Cork and Cloyne, then canonically united. 

In De Burgo's time the MacJordan family had reached the thirteenthi 
generation (seculo xiii.) in Ireland ; he says : 

" F. Stephann.s de Exonia, Hibernns, ex illustri Imjns notninis Familia Anglica,! 
sed qua in Hiberniam seculo xiii., jam comraigrarat etapud Athleathan sedem fixeratj 
cujus, et Dominum compararat originem ducens, natus anno 12415, et 25 Martii 1263 
ad ordinem occitus in Domo Stradnessi ad Athleathan. Laudatur in Catalogo Codiciimj 
MSS. Anglia et Hibernia ubi sic legitur, Tom. II., Pag. 11, Num. 42." 

And again, writing of the same Friar Stephen de Exonia, De Burgo says : 

" F. Sfcephanus de Exonia, an glic^ per Syncopen Dexter, hibernic^ MacJordan, 
Csenobii Stradensi, a gente sua fundati Alumnus floruit Anno 1274." ..." Auctor 
Annalium illorum quosvulso Annales Montis Fernandi sive Minoritarum Multifarnae 
vocamus, incipit ab Anno Domini 1245 et definit Anno 1274, quo tempore ille vixit, 
lit ex antiquitate characteris liquet non possum non suspicari auctorem f uisse Fratrem 
JStephanum de Exonia, quern natum perhibent Annalis illi Anno 1246, et habitu 
ordinis sui indutum in Die Annunciationis B. Marice Anno 1262." 

The Friar Stephen De Exonia, here mentioned by De Burgo, as the 
writer of the Annals of Multifernan (commonly known as "Anonymous 
Annals"), was one of the Dominican Monks of the Abbey of Strade ; and 
a son of De Exeter, lord of Athleathan. Of that Friar, Ware says :f 

" The Annals of the Dominicans were brought down by an Anonymous Friar of 
that Order, to the year 1274, in which the author flourished." 

This extract was copied from the Annals De Monte Fernandi,X a copy 

another site. The ruins of both Abbeys are still to be seen at Athleathan (now called 
Strade), in the parish of Templemore, and said barony of Gallen, but in the ancient 
territory of Lieney. In Archdall's Moiiasticoii Hiberniaim, the building and endowment 
of the Abbey of Athleathan is mentioned. Some authorities say it was founded by 
O'Heyne ; but Ware says that it was at the solicitation of the wife of De Exeter, Lord 
of Athleathan, viz., Penelope O'Connor, that the Abbey was founded and endowed by 
her husband ; while De Burgo says that it was at the solicitation of Basilia De 
Bermingham, sister of the Baron of Athenry, that her husband De Exeter built and 
endowed the Monastery. Evidently Ware and De Burgo allude— tbe former to the 
first Abbey, and the latter to the second Abbey founded at Strade ; or the two state- 
ments may be reconciled thus : Basilia De Bermingham may have been the flrst wife 
of the De Exeter who founded the flrst Abbey at Athleathan, and Penelope O'Connor 
his second wife ; or, the two Abbeys were founded by different members of the De 
Exeter family, and their respective wives were the ladies above mentioned. To this 
day the Monastery of Athleathan possesses some of the most perfect and beautiful 
specimens of ancient work on stone.

Note, page 24, Annals of Multifernan, Hanmer says : A.D. 1269, " Richard De 
Exonia or De Exeter was made Lord .Justice, and died same year with his wife Margery 
De Say. !^ir James Ware repeats Hanmer's statement." The Annals of Multifernan 
state that Richard of Exeter married Yesimain, the daughter of Lord David De 
Prendergast, then Jiaron of Clanmorris. The names Eva, Yesmain, and Margery are 
to this day common family names in the De Exeter family. 

In Grace's Annals the following entries of this family are to be found': 

A.D. 1312 : " Milo De Verdon married the daughter of Richard De Exonia, Dexter, 
or De Exeter. This great Connaught family of De Exeter assumed at this time the 
name of Jordan or MacJ ordan, and Richard De Exonia was Chief Justice in Banco." 
(Stcde Papers, Edward II., page 117.) 

Edward I. invaded Scotland, and his Justiciary, John Darcy, summoned the Anglo- 
Irish Barons and a number of the Irish Princes to attend the expedition to Scotland 
with men, arms, horses, etc. — Rhymer, Vol. II., page 906; and, according to OraceJ s 
Annals, a large number of the Anglo-Norman Irish nobility attended King Edward in 
his expeditions to Scotland, among whom two of the De Exeter Lords were present, 
and were amongst the nobles entertained by the king at Roxburgh Castle. The De 
Exeters also fought in Gascoigne during the king's wars ; and members of that family 
were present at the victories during subsequent reigns in France. 

In Grace's Annals, page 170, and page 170 in the Appendix to those Annals, three 
members of the De Exeter family are named amongst the list of the Peers summoned 
to attend the Parliament at Kilkenny held in the year a.d. 1309. — See also L3'^nch's 
and Betham's Feudal Dignities. 

The right, according to the Constitutional law of the country, still exists that, as 
the De Exeter Jordans have been Peers in Parliament, and have received Writs of sum- 
mons to attend as such from time immemorial, and before Kings and Queens arro- 
gated to themselves the power of granting titles ; they can claim their ancient titles 
if they choose when they prove their direct descent, and that no bills of attainder haa 
been passed against the members of the family. This Constitutional law is distinctly 
laid down in Hume and Smollet's History of England, in Archdall's edition of Lodgers 

Monte Fernandi (known as the Annals of Multifernan), in the first sentence in the 
Introduction : "The following Annals commence ad. 45, and terminate with the year 
1274 ; and . . . they claim attention from their antiquity, and are, perhaps, the 
most ancient annals of this country written exclusively in the Latin language." 

* Eva : This Eva, first wife of Richard De Exonia, was daughter of O'Connor, King 
of Connaught.

country, — See Note, p. 51, Lodge's Peerage. 

A.D. 1571. Edmond Campion, in his History of Ireland, gives the names of the 
temporal nobility then in Ireland, among whom he places " Lord Deseret," whom Sir 
Henry Sidney called " Jordan De Exeter ;" and of whom he further states that this 
family were Lords in the time of the Duke of Clarence's Lord Lieutenancy, in 1361. 
— See Hogan's Description of Ireland, in 1592, p. 232. 

The Annals of the Four Masters relate the various attacks on the 
Castle of Athleathan ; but it still remained in the possession of the 
family until Cromwell confiscated their large possessions, and removed 
them to their present family seat Ratlislevin (modernized "Rosslevin") 
Castle, situate in the said barony of Gallen and county of Mayo, and 
about five or six miles south-east of Ballylahan. 

The MacJordans held high and distinguished positions among the 
invaders, and intermarried with the families of De Say, Prendergast, and 
Costello ; and with some other of the noblest families in Connaught, viz. : 
A De Exeter MacJordan m. Penelope O'Connor, daughter of the King of 
Ireland ; another m. Basilia De Bermingham, daughter of the lord baron 
of Athenry (both of whom are above-mentioned); a daughter of Walter 
Jordan De Exeter, of the Island near Ballyhaunis, county of Mayo, m. in 
1692 (according to the "Dillon" pedigree, by Lodge), one of Lord Clon- 
brock's ancestors ; etc. And Celia MacJordan married Rickard Bourke, 
from both of whom are descended the present marquis of Clanricarde, and 
the earl of Mayo. Of this lady, as already stated, the Four Masters, under 
A.D. 1485, say : 

"Celia, daughter of MacJordan, the wife of Rickard Bourke, the most exalted 
woman in Connaught, died." 

The principal residence of the MacJordan family was, as already 
mentioned, at Athleathan, where, in 1169 or 1170, they built their most 
important Castle in Ireland, which was called Athleathan Castle. It was 
afterwards called Baile-atha-leathan (meaning the "Town of the Broad 
Ford''), and at present Ballylahan. That ancient Castle is now in a state 
of ruin; but, judging by the extensive area covered by its remains, the 
Castle must have been a very large building. 

Hardiman, in his description of Sir William Betty's Survey of Ireland, 
gives a verbatim copy of Petty's report to his Government. In that 
report Petty, speaking of the then De Exeter Jordan, states that he and 
others showed him matters of record and credit that they were barons by 
tenure of lands, and were summoned as such to Parliament. Petty alsa 
states that they had lands sufficient for such dignity, &c. The CromwelHan 
and Williamite Confiscations, however, deprived the MacJordans of much 
of their ancient territory. Yet, but few families still hold, as do the 
MacJordans, large tracts of the same lands which they possessed more 
than 700 years ago ; and are able to trace as they can a direct and 
unbroken descent from the founder of their family in Ireland. It is a 
strange fact that, notwithstanding the Confiscations and Penal Laws in 
Ireland, the MacJordans have remained unchanged in Faith ; and that 
although at one time to all appearance stricken down by tyranny and 
persecution,^ the family still maintains a most respectable position in, 
society ; as it were verifying their ancient Motto — Percussus Besurgo. \ 


In Speed's Theatre of Great Britain and Ireland, published in 1676, 
appear the names of the territories taken from the dominant Septs in 
Oonnaught : amongst them the territory of Mac Jordan, adjacent to 

In the Topographia Hibernka* we read that Strade or Straid is a fair 
town in the barony of Gallen, and county of Mayo. This place is seated 
by the river Moy.f The Sept MacJordan founded a House here under 
the Invocation of the Holy Cross for Friars of the Order of St. Francis ; 
but in 1252 it was given to the Dominicans. A small part of this Friary 
still remains, but the walls of the church, which was singularly beautiful, 
are still entire ; the high altar| is adorned with Gothic ornaments. In 
the centre of the altar is an image of our Saviour when an infant in the 
Virgin's lap, and a person in relievo within a compartment of each side. 
Here is also a tomb adorned with curious relievos of four kings in different 
compartments, one of whom is kneeling before a mitred person ; near to 
it is another relievo of Saints Peter and Paul. 

On the 15th July, 1585, and the 27th of Elizabeth, a Commission was 
issued by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth : 

"To Sir Richard Bingham, Knt., Chief Commissioner of Connaught ; the Arch- 
bishop of Tuam ; the earls of Thomond and Clanrickard ; the bishops of Clonfert and 
Elphin ; the lord Bermingham, baron of Athenry ; Sir Nicholas White, Knt., Master 
of the ' Rules ;' Sir Edward Waterhoiise and Sir Thomas Le Strange, two of the 
Privy Council ; Thomas Dillon, Esq., chief justice of Connaught ; Charles Calthorpp, 
attorney-general ; Gerald Comerford, Esq., attorney for ConDaught ; Sir Tirlagh 
O'Brien, Knt. ; Sir Donnell O'Connor, Sligo, Knt. ; Sir Brian O'Rorke, Knt. ; Sir 
Richard Burke, Knt. ; Sir Murrogh na Deo O'Flaherty ; Francis Barkley, provost- 
marshal in Connaught ; Nicholas Fitzsimons, of Dublin, alderman ; John Marburie, 
Robert Ffowle, and John Brown, gentlemen ; who, from motives of ' tender considera- 
tion' towards Her Majesty's loyal subjects in the Province of Connaught, then under 
the Rule of her right trusty and well-beloved deputy-general, Sir John Perrott, 
Knight, are directed to embrace all good ways and means whereby their titles and 
rights may be reduced to certainty : Premising that Sir Richard Bingham, Sir

may be convenient ; and commanding that all Mayors, Sheriffs, Bailiffs, Constables, 
Officers and others to attend to the said Commission, for which they shall answer for 
the contrary at their peril." 

Under this Commission, sittings were held at various places in Con- 
caught : one of them was held at Dunemona,§ on the 8th of September,

Castlebar, and on the river Moy, and Lough Cullen, containing 4,135 inhabitants. A 
Franciscan Friary was founded here by the Sept MacJordan ; but in 1252 this House 
was given to the Dominicans by Myler De Exeter Jordan, Lord of Athleathan, or by 
his son Stephen" . . , Templemore is an ancient ruin situated a few miles from 
Swinford, co. Mayo ; about a mile beyond it are the ruins of Ballylahan Castle. 

% A Itar : Within the last thirty or forty years that beautiful altar was removed 
from its ancient surroundings, and placed in a modem chapel in the neighbourhood ; 
but the carvings thereon are now scarcely recognized, on account of the lime-wash 
with which they are covered.

Her Majesty's " tender considerations" were consequently bestowed on 
the MacJordans and others in Ireland. 

The Jury empanelled on that occasion were : 

" Piers Barrett, of Ballysakeery ; Redmond MacCulladuff Oge, of Kilkeeran ; i 
Marcus MacEnabbe, of the Toher ; David MacJoyn, of Kenlagh ; William MacMoyler, J

That Jury found that the county Mayo includes nine baronies, of which i 
Ballylahan alias Gallen was one. In Mayo they found that there were- 
1,548 quarters of land, each quarter containing 120 Irish acres; and,, 
after detailing several baronies, it is found that in the barony of Gallen i 
there is a quantity of laud called Clan Stephen.^

The Irish Chiefs and Owners of the country, except those in the 
interest of the English in Ireland, kept aloof, and neither attended the 
Commission, nor added their signatures to the Indenture ; for, feelino- 
that the settlement made in that Indenture was only a pretext to 
ascertain the extent and value of the inheritance possessed by the native 
[rish Chiefs (and which was soon after turned to sad account ao-ainst 
them), they did not sign the Indenture : they preferred to absent them- 
selves, so as not to be identified with such unjust interference with their 
rights; but, from compulsion, they had afterAvards to gladly submit.

of MacDermott's territory ia Moylurg ; and of O'Kelly's, in Hy-Maine. 

Commencing with Jordan de Courcy, who, as above shown, ws 
brother of Sir ^ohn De Courcy, the first Earl of Ulster, the following i^ 
the genealogy of the De Exeter Jordan family : 

1. Jordan De Courcy, who in 
1197 was killed by an Irish retainer 
in Ulster, leaving three sons, two 
of whom were slain in Downpatrick 
churchyard, in 1203, while defend- 
ing their uncle, Sir John De Courcy, 
against the attack of De Lacy's 
followers (as mentioned, ante, in 
the "De Courcy" genealogy); the 
third son being a mere boy at the 

2. Jordan De Courcy*'' or Jordan 
De Exeter : third son of Jordan. 
This boy was removed by his 
friends to Exeter in England, to 
escape for the time in Ireland the 
persecutionf of the De Courcy 
family by their great rivals the 
De Lacys, instigated by King 
John. When that persecution had 

ceased with the death of that 
arbitrary Monarch, Jordan De 
Exeter returned to Ireland and 
made a settlement in ancient 
Meath ; where he built the fortress 
called Jordan's Castle, and yet 
known as Castlejordan ;% but, to 
assert his uncle's title to the lord- 
ship of Connaught which with the 
earldom of Ulster was in 1181 
granted by King Henry II. to him 
and his heirs male, besides any 
other land in Ireland he (Sir John 
De Courcy) could gain by the sword 
this Jordan De Exeter invadec 
that Province with a powerfu 
following of friends and retainers 
made a settlement in ancien 
Galenga and in Tyrawley, as abov 
mentioned ; and built his principa 

of the MacJordans, in the barony of Gallen ; with other grants of similar confisca 
tions at the time in the barony of Costello, and co. of Mayo. Those grants includes 
the town and Castle of Ballylahan, the Castle and town of Rathslevin, and diver 
other lands, rents, and hereditaments in the county of Mayo, of which the De Exete 
Jordan family were deprived. In those days religious persecutions were for th 
most part the means, or ostensibly the cause, by which new families in Ireland wer 
agorandised, at the expense of the descendants of the ancient Ii'ish Proprietors ; an< 
of the Anglo-Norman invaders of Ireland, who endeavoiired to conciliate the nativi 
Irish, by adopting their manners, laws, and customs. Almost all those new familie 
are now, we are soi^ry to say, as alien in race, ideas, and feelings, as when thei 
ancestors first became the possessors of confiscated lands in Ireland ! While Lon 
Strafford, as lord lieutenant, acted in the most tyrannical manner in confiscating thi 
Estates of the Irish, but particularly the Catholic Irish Chiefs ; yet, for that ver 
reason, some historians appear to lament his execution ! Strafford's unhappy death 
however, did not restore their Estates to the Irish proprietors, whom he had so cruell; 

* Jordan De Courcy : This boy's mother was one of the descendants of Hugh D« 
Brionis, Sheriff of Devonshire, whom William the Conqueror endowed with on< 
hundred and fifty-nine lordships in that shire ; and who, when appointed by the Con 
cjneror as Governor of the Castle of Exeter, was commonly named De Exeter. Hence 
young Jordan De Courcy, on his return to Ireland, assumed a portion of his mother*! 
name, and was known as Siurthan De Exeter, which means " Jordan De Exeter." — Se< 
Khelim's Domesday Booh ; and also Burke's Dormant and Extinct Peerage. 

t Persecution : See Note " Miles," in p. 167, ante, 

X Castlejordan : According to Vol. I., p. 354, of the History of Ireland, by 
Thomas Wright, that Castle was surprised by O'Connor Faley, and taken from the 
English, A D. 1540. 


Castle at Athleathan, in the barony 
of Gallen, and co. of Mayo. 

Under A.D. 1247, this Jordan 
De Exeter is mentioned by the 
Four Masters as "Siurtan De 
Exeter," who was then in command 
of the EngHsh forces in Connaught, 
and who caused the Irish King 
Torlogh O'Connor to retreat from 
Carra in that year " as he had not 
equal forces to meet them." In 
1249, this Jordan (or Siurtan) De 
Exeter, lord of Athleathan, was 
sheriff! of Connaught ; and com- 
manded the Anglo-Norman forces 
at Athenry, when, say the Four 
Masters, " he gained a great victory 
over the Irish, by the miraculous 
interposition of the Blessed Virgin 

3. Myler De Exeter Jordan, lord 
of Athleathan : son of Jordan De 
Exeter : m. Basilia, daughter of De 
Bermingham, lord of Athenry. 
This lady, according to De Burgo, 
induced her husband to build and 
endow the abbey of Straid, near 
the family residence of Athleathan 

4. Stephen, lord of Athleathan : 
son of Myler; was also Sheriff of 
Connaught, and with one of his 
knights named Pierce Agabard was 
killed in a sea-fight against Mac- 
Sorley (MacDonnell) off the coast 
of Connemara. 

5. Richard (called by some " De 
Exonia") : son of Stephen ; was, 

according to AVare, De Burgo, 
Harris, and O'Heyne, Viceroy or 
Lord Deputy of Ireland, in 1269. 
He m. in 1260 Eva (d. in 1262), dau. 
of O'Connor, King of Connaught. 
As the first Abbey of Straid had 
been burned down, this Eichard De 
Exonia, at the solicitation of his 
wife, built and endowed another 
Abbey there, for the Dominicans. 
Having large possessions in Ty- 
rawley (his lauds there having 
been increased by his marriage 
with the King's daughter), he also 
bailt and endowed the Abbey of 
Rathbran or Rafran, near Killala, 
also for the Dominicans. Richard 
had a brother Simon De Exeter, 
who in 1284 was killed in a battle 
between his forces and those of 
the O'Flynns, MacDermotts, and 

6. Myler : son of Richard ; was 
killed in a battle fought between 
the English in Connaught and King 
Calvagh O'Connor, in 1289. 

7. Slemme De Exeter, lord of 
Athleathan : son of Myler ; was 
in 1316, while in command of the 
English forces, killed in the battle 
of Athleathan, in which Myles De 
Cogan, " the noblest baron in Ire- 
land," in his time, was with other 
Anglo-Normans also slain. This 
Slemme was succeeded by his 
brother Myler, who, in a fight that 
in 1317 took place on the banks of 
the river Methanagh in Drumcliflf, 

* Sheriff: This term is of English origin in Ireland. The Sheriff in ancient times 
was entrusted with both the administration of justice and the management of the 
King's revenue. 

t Virgin Mary : According to Hardiman's West Connaught, p. 265, under A. D. 
1249, " The Irish nobility of Connaught went to Athenrie, to prey and spoile that 
towne on the day of our Lady the Blessed Virgin Mary, in the middest of harvest . . 
The Sheriff of Connaught with many Englishmen were in the said towne before them. 
There was a great army with Terlagh MacHugh (O'Connor). The Sheriff and English- 
men desired them in honour of the Blessed Yirgin Mary, whose day then was, to 
forbear with them that day, which the Irish nobility refused . . They assaulted 
the towne against the will of the said Terlagh, which Jordan De Exeter the Sheriffe 
and Englishmen seeing, they rushed forthe to meet the said Irishmen, when the Vii'gin 
Mary wrought miraculously against the said nobility."

CO. Sligo, was with fourteen of his 
companions killed by the army 
commanded by Donal O'Connor. 
Myler was succeeded by his son : 

8. Myler, as lord of Athleathan, 
who died 1336. (Under a.d. 13i0, 
the Four Masters relate that Jordan 
MacCostello was slain by Cathal 
MacDermott Gall.) 

9. Slevin :'^ son of Myler ; suc- 
ceeded his father as lord of 
Athleathan ; and built some of the 
Castlesf in the De Exeter territory. 
Under A.D. 1316 the Four Masters 
say : 

" Felim {i.e. O'Connor, then King of 
Connaugbt) again assumed the govern- 
ment of Counaught. He mustered another 
army, and marched against Athleathau, 
now Ballylahan, in the barony of Gailen, 
and county of Mayo, formerly the seat of 
the De Exeter Jordans, lords of Ath- 
leathan . . . He burned the towu, 
and slew Slevin De Exeter Jordan, lord 

of the town, and also Gogonoch (or Milea 
De Cogan),J the noblest baron in his 
time in Ireland, and many others of the 
Euglish ; and acquired much booty. " 

10. Meyler, lord of Athleathan : 
son of Slevin ; died in 1336. Was 
succeeded by his brother Stephen ; 
who was slain in 1355, as mentioned 
by the Four Masters. This Stephen 
Avas succeeded by his son : 

11. Slevin, who with his brother 
John was in 1380 killed in a battle§ 
at Athleathan fought there between 
the two DeBurgo rival factions : 

" Mac William Bourke," say the Four 

Masters, "gave MacWilliam Oughter 
(Richard Oge) a great overthrow in the 
town of Athleathan, in which MacJordan 
Dexeter, lord of Athleathan, and John 
DexeLer were slaiu." 

Slevin was succeeded by his son : 
12. Ei chard, who in 1395 was 

* Slevin : From this Slevin, Bahslevln (now Roslevhi) Castle, near Kiltimagh, in 
the CO. Llayo, derives its name. The modern Castle of Eoslevin is now tlie seat of 
the present representatives of the De ExeterJordan family — See No. 30, infra, on this 

f Castles : This Slevin and his sou Stephen built as outpost fortifications placed 
at certain distances around theii' territory, for its better defence, the following Castles, 
the ruins of which are yet to be seen in the localities mentioned : 1. Currane (or 
Caislmu) Stephen, near Bally vary, barony of Gailen, and co. of Mayo, which was a 
very strong fortress, and is still in a very good state of preservation. 2. Boliola, only 
one tower of which remains. 3. BalUnamore, the ruins of which are situate on the 
lawn in front of Mr. Oi'msby's residence. 4. Old Castle, near Swinford, and convenient 
to the modern residence of Mr. O'Rorke. 5. New Castle, near the present residence 
of Mr. Owen O'Mally, J.P. 6. Athouse. 7. Eathslevin, near Roslevin Castle, now 
the residence of Mr. Myles H. Jordan, J.P. 8. Tumore, near Foxford. 9. Clooncjee 
Castle, near Foxford. 10. Raight or Wraiffht, in the barony of Costello. 11. Island 
Castle, in same barony, and near Ballyhaunis. 

% De Cogan ; Miles De Cogan's daughter was, we have seen, married to Patrick 
De Courcy, ths second baron of Kinsale ; he was, therefore, related by marriage to the 
lord of Athleathan, with whom De Cogan was on a visit on that occasion. 

§ Battle; Myler, the son and heir of Slevin, being too young on his father's death 
to engage in active warfare, we find that in 1381 (one year afterwards) the MacDonoghs 
of Ballymote, made a predatory incursion into Gailen, demolished the Castle of 
Athleathan, and carried away the gates thereof to Ballymote. Some fifteen years ago 
a curious circumstance occurred in relation to that fact : A member of the MacJordan 
family happened to observe in a place he had visited two beautifully carved stones on 
which were represented his family crest. Upon inquiring how the then owner of those 
stones came to be in possession of them, the reply was that they were carried from 
Ballymote Castle to Glen Island, in the co. of Mayo, by a retired constable of police, 
who looked upon them as a curiosity. The two carved stones, it is needless to say, 
were at once purchased, and are (in 1888) again we find in possession of a De Exeter, 
namely, Doctor Myles Joseph Jordan, M.D., Castlebar. 


taken prisoner by some of his kins- 
men, and delivered into the hands 
of Mac\Yilham Bourke. "But," 
say the Four Masters, "Donal Mac- 
Murtogh O'Connor and the Irish of 
North Conuaught marched their 
forces into the territory of Mac- 
William, in consequence of the 
taking of MacJordan, whom they 
set at liberty ; and peace was made 
between the English and Irish of 
the province on that occasion." 
This Kichard was succeeded by his 
brother Myler, who, in 1416, with 
his kinsmen, made an attack on the 
sons of John U'Hara ; but was slain 
on his return home from their 
territory, having taken from them 
much booty. Myler had a son, 
John, and another named Kichard, 
who was known as Bichard Mac- 
Jordan of the Wood.* John was 
in 1391 treacherously killed by his 
own kinsmen ; and Bichard of the 
Wood succeeded his father, as lord 
of Athleathan. 

13. Bichard MacJordan.j of the 
Wood : son of Meyler ; was in 1420 
taken prisoner by Owen O'Flaherty, 
who delivered him into the hands 
of MacJordan Dubli, by whom he 
was plundered. This Bichard, lord 
of Athleathan, lived to a very old 

age; he made in 1428 a hostile 
incursion into Tyrawley, against 
Thomas Barrett, whom he plun- 
dered ; he had many sons (one of 
whom is, under a.d, 1472 in the 
Annals of the Four Masters, men- 
tioned for his valour), and a dau. 
Celia or Sile (died in 1485), who 
married Bichard Bourke, as above 
mentioned, and who, say the Four 
Masters, was " the most exalted 
woman in Connaught." From her 
are descended the present families 
of the Marquis of Clanricard and 
the Earl of Mayo. 

14. Meyler, lord of Athleathan: 
succeeded his father, Bichard, in 
1475 ; died in 1510 ; and was suc- 
ceeded by his son, Slevin. 

15. Slevin De Exeter, d, in 1533, 
and was succeeded by his brother, 
James, who in 1548, was succeeded 
by his nephew : 

16. Slemme, who, in 1560, was 
succeeded by his son : 

17. Myler, who, in 1578, was 
succeeded by his son : 

18. Stephen : who was succeeded 
by his brother, Evagher MacJordan, 
who was succeeded by his son : 

19. Edmondt (d. 1620), who was 
succeeded by his son : 

20. James, lord of Athleathan, 

* Wood : Meaning the woody plain or plain of tlie woods where is situated the 
town of Kiltimagh ("coillte :" Irish, looods ; " magh," a plain), in the barony of 
Gallen and county of Mayo. In those days there were extensive woods in that 
locality, from which circumstance Kiltimagli derives its name. 

t MacJordan: According to the Zinea Atttiqica, another "MacJordan" family 
was descended from Meyler, a younger brother of Costelo Oge, who (see page 136, 
ante), is No. 2 on the " Costello" genealogy. 

t Edmond : This Edmond Evagher MacJordan De Exeter, lord of Athleathan, 
was one of the barons who attended on Sir William Petty during his Survey of 
Connaught ; signed the paper acknowledging the number of quarters of land he was 
possessed of ; and produced " matters of record and credit" (as above mentioned) to 
show that he (Jordan) and his ancestors Avere barons by tenure of lands, and were 
summoned as such to Parliament ; and Petty in his report to his Government states, 
that the De Exeter Jordans possessed lands sufficient for such dignity. Thus, in 
right of his name as " MacJordan," this Edmond " Vaghery," as he is called in the 
Indentiu-e above given, was confirmed in his possessions ; yet Petty afterwards 
reserved a portion of MacJordan's territory for John Browne of the Neale, who was 
an ancestor of the present lords Kilmaine and Sligo.— See also Hogan's Description

was then known by another name. Another of the sisters m. Mr. Martin, of Ross, 
CO. Galway; and the eldest sister m. Mr. Moore, an ancestor of the present Moores of 
Moore Hall, and is credited with having by some tact secured Moore Hall for her 
husband, and deprived her two sisters of their supposed rights. 

t Ruffles : This Henry was so called, because, as was then the fashion, he wore 
rvffles in profusion. 

% Duel : The quarrel which led to that duel originated, it is said, at an Assizes 
held in Galway, circa 1785, between Jordan and his relative Martin, under the 
following circumstances : Jordan, who went on the Connaught Circuit, was at the 
Assizes counsel in a case against a member of the Burke family of Ower, co. Galway, 
a near relative of his own, for Jordan's mother, as above shown, was also a member of 
that familj\ In the course of conversation, Martin, who was the friend of both 
parties, observed that he was sorry to find Jordan had not treated his mother with 
due filial respect ; but Jordan, who was proud and imperious, construed the observa- 
tion into an imult, and a challenge ensued. Martin, who was a noted duellist in those 
days, made every effort to apologise, and thus prevent a hostile meeting between 
them ; but Jordan would not be satisfied unless the same people were again gathered 
together, in whose presence Martin had made use of the alleged insulting expression 
complained of. This would be almost impossible : so the adversaries met in a field 
(pointed out by the country people of that neighbourhood to this day) near the public 
road at Green Hills, half way between Castlebar and Westport, when Jordan received 
in the groin his opponent's fire, and was thence removed into the neighbouring house of 
Mr. Bourke, of Green Hills, where he (Jordan) lingered in great pain for three or four 
days and died. To the honour of Martin it should be mentioned that he arrived at 


fought betweea him and his 
relative (first or second cousin), 
the celebrated Colonel Richard 
Martin, of Ballinahinch Castle, 
West Gal way. James, who 
d. s. p., had a quarrel with his 
mother, on account, it is alleged, 
of her neglect of his sisters' 
education, during his absence 
from home on travel. When 
dying, he willed the family 
Estate to a Miss Vipout, of 
Dublin : thus excluding, he 
thought, his mother from re- 
ceiving her dower; and his 
brother, too, from inheriting 
the property. But Miss Vipout 
would take only £500, under 
the Will : She gave Myles 
De Exeter Jordan, the brother 
of her " lover," a clear receipt 
for all claims on the Estate 
which James's Will assigned

the ground fixed upon by the seconds without his pistols, and in consequence it was 
discussed for some time that the duel could not take place, as Martin had not his 
weapons with him. Jordan, however, refused, to leave the ground ; used various 
threats against Martin unless the duel proceeded; and insisted upon one of his 
(Jordan's) pistols being handed to his opponent, who had reluctantly to accept it ; and 
as a fact Jordan was shot with one of his own pistols ! 

So keenly did Colonel Martin feel respecting that unfortunate duel, that one day 
in the dining-room of the mansion of Castlemacgarrett, county Mayo (the seat of the 
present Lord Oranmore and Browne), where the Colonel had been a frequent guest, he 
was observed with a carving knife in his hand, and "presented" as a pistol, uncon- 
sciously soliloquising, "I could not have missed him," meaning the said James Jordan. 

The extraordinary part of the story is, that Martin and Jordan had been so 
intimate, they travelled together over nearly the whole of Europe, visited America, 
and spent a few years together in Jamaica. When Jordan returned to Mayo, after 
five or six years' absence, he found his sisters more or less neglected by his mother in 
their education : that neglect led to a feud between him and his motber ; it was to 
that feud that Martin's kindly-meant observation referred, which led to the duel. 

* BourTce : This branch of the Bourke (or De Burgo) family were the former 
owners of Castle Bourke, the ruins of which are situated close to Lough Carra, in 
Mayo ; and they claimed to be the direct descendants of the Earl of Mayo, who d. in 
Pall Mall, as above mentioned, on the 12th January, 1769. After some troublesome 
and expensive litigation, however, the Naas branch of the Bourke family succeeded 
in establishing their claims to the then dormant Earldom ; and in their line it still

he is said to have displayed great coolness and courage ; and to this day the people 
of that district relate the circumstances attending that duel, as follows : Mr. Jordan 
could not close his left eye-lid without the aid of his hand. While in the act of doing 
£0 with his left hand on the occasion of the duel, he received his adversary's fire

Mr. Jordan feeling himself wounded, placed the injured hand in his trousers' pocket, 
and demanded another shot. The seconds, on both sides, complied by again reloading 
the pistols; but the adversary's second, watchful for the interests of his friend, saw 
that Mr. Jordan must have been wounded, as blood was making its appearance 
through his trousers, which was of a light colour. That second, therefore, called- 
attention to Mr. Jordan's wound, and, on consultation with the other second, the duel 
had to cease. 

* Finrjlass : Descended from Baron Finglass, who wrote what is known as 
"Finglass's Breviate," which is published in Harris's Hibernica ; and which contains 
valuable historical information respecting Ireland. Baron Finglass was of the West- 
palstone Finglass family. (Westpalstone is situated in the barony of Balrothery, 
CO. Dublin, some 12 miles N. of the city of Dublin). After this family the village of 
"Finglass" in the county Dublin is so called. Lodge, in Vol. V., p. 47, says of the- 
"Finglass" family, under " Barnwall, Viscount KiugsJand :" "Elizabeth m. to John 
Finglass, Esq., of Westpalstone, 28th June, 1607 ;" and again in Vol. VI., p. 195,.

JOYCE. (No. 1.) 
Of Joyces' Country, County Galway. 

Arms : Ar. an eagle displ. g\i. charged on the breast with a bar gemel erm. 
Crest: A demi wolf ducally gorged ppr. Motto : Mors aut honorabilis vita. 

A VERY curious pedigree of this family is recorded in the Office of Arms,* 
Dublin ; which agrees with MacFirbis in tracing the descent of this 
family from a King. of Britain. Other genealogists assert that Joyce and 
Joy are of Anglo-Norman descent, and were originally called De Jorse. 
But all admit that they were an ancient, honourable, and nobly descended 
race ; of tall and manly stature ; f and were allied to the Welsh and 
British Princes. 

Thomas de Jorse, who (according to the History of Galway, &c.) was 
the firft of the name that came to Ireland, sailed from Wales in the 
reign of King Edward I., immediately after that Monarch had, a.d. 1282, 
defeated the Welsh prince Lew3dlen, and added Wales to England. He 
arrived with his fleet at Thomond, in Ireland, where, it is said, he 
married Nora O'Brien, daughter of the then Prince of that Principality. 
He afterwards put to sea, steered for West Connaught, and landed in the 
barony of Tyrawley, in the county of Mayo, where the sept had a 

* Office of Arms : That pedigree was professionally compiled by Daniel Moly- 
neux, King-of-Arms in the Kingdom of Irelaad, for a Mr. Gregory Joj/es (now Joyce), 
who died at Madrid, a,d. 1745 ; aad runs thus : " Pernobilis et Pervatusta Joyseorum 
familia veteri et houorabili, atque a Regibus Wallise, ut colligitur ex antiquis monu- 
mentis approbatis a Domino Daniele Moliaeiix, Armorum Rege in regno Hibernise." 
. . . Bub of that pedigree Hardiman, ia his TFeat Connaught, p. 247, says .... 
This family did not stand in need of this account of its origin and descent, which will 
be found faithfully detailed in MacFirbis's great collection of Irish genealogies pre- 
served in the Library of the Royal Irish Academy, Dublin ... To this day the 
Joyces retain some of the characteristics of the ancient Irish." 

t Stiiure : Of them Ussher says, in his Primorcl., p. 726, " Populus magaua sicufc 
IGigantes, procerae homines staturoe, et fortissimi." 


temporary stay, and founded the Abbey of Rosserk,* on the banks of the 
river Moy. Thence he re-embarked, and reached lar Connacht (or the 
north-western part of the county Galway), where he estabhshed a colony 
and acqmred extensive tracts of territory contiguous to Killery Bay, 
adjacent to the county Mayo ; and extending from Cong river to the river 
Glenbrickeen, near Clifden, in the county Galway, in which some of his 
posterity now reside. While on his voyage to lar Connaught, his wife was 
delivered of a son, whom he named MacMara (or " the son of the sea"), 
who was subsequently called Edmond, This Edmond (MacMara) Joyce 
was first married to the daughter of O'Flaherty, prince of lar Connaught^ 
by whom he acquired the territory comprising the present Parish of 
Ballinakill, and other districts ; from him are descended the Joyces of 
"Joyces' Country," called after their name Duthaidh Seoigheoch, now 
forming the Barony of Ross, the parish of Ballinakill, etc., in the west of 
the county Galway. 

The Joyces were a brave and warlike race, and great commanders of 
gallowglasses, particularly Tioboid na Caidein (Toby or Theobald of the 
Castles), who is No. 11 on the subjoined list of the chiefs of the Joyce 
family. This Theobald and the neighbouring chiefs were frequently at 
war. One of his most remarkable battles was with Tioboid na Luinge (or 
Toby of the Ships), who is No. 28 on " The Bourkes, lords viscount Mayo" 
pedigree ; which was fought in Partry, on the boundary of the Bourkes' 
territory and Joyces' country, in which the Joyces were victorious, and 
Theobald Bourke made prisoner. As the result of that battle, Tioboid na 
Luinge gave the Joyces a part of his territory, extending from the battle- 
field (the original boundary ; and to this day known as Smith na Luinge, 
indicating where Tioboid na Luinge was captured) to Owenbrin. The 
Joyces were frequently at war with the O'Flahertys, who, during almost 
the whole of the sixteenth century, strenuously endeavoured to regain the 
territories which Edmond (MacMara) Joyce received with the daughter of 
O'Flaherty, as above mentioned. In those sanguinary battles the bravest 
and dearest kinsmen fell on both sides. 

In 1587 the Clan Joyce, with great valour, opposed Bingham, governor 
of Connaught, and assisted by other tribes of the province, defeated him 
at Caislean na Cailighe (" cailleach :" Irish, an old icoman ; Heb. '•' chelach," 
old age), on Lough Mask. 

Of this family are the Joyces of Joyce Grove, county Galway ; of 

* RosserTc : The following interesting extract from The Rise and Fall of the 
Franciscan Monasteries in Ireland, by the Rev. C. P. Meehan, Dublin, is here given : 

"A few miles south-east of Killalla, Rosserrick, another of our Monasteries, sees 
itself reflected in the waters of the Moy. It was founded, early in the fifteenth 
century, by a chieftain of the Joyces, a potent family of Welsh extraction, singularly 
remarkable for their gigantic stature, who settled in west Connaught, in the thirteenth 
century. Rosserick occupies the site of a primitive Irish oratory ; and the place 
derives its name from Searca, a holy woman, who is said to have blessed the Ros or 
promontory that runs out into the river. The site indeed was happily chosen, and 
the entire edifice is an exquisite specimen of the architect's skill. The church and 
monastery are built of a compact blueish stone, and the former is surmounted by a 
graceful square bell tower, so peculiar to all our Irish Franciscan houses. The view 
f rom^ the summit of that campanile is truly enchanting ; and, as for the external 
requirements of such an establishment — its cloisters, library, dormitory, refectory,, 
and schools — the munificence of the Joyces left nothing to be desired." 


Oxford, near Doonamoona, ia Mayo ; of Woodquay, in the town of 
Galway ; and of Merview, near the town. Other collateral branches of the 
family settled in Leinster and Munster — a descendant of one of whom, it 
is said, was the Irish Judge, Chief Baron Joy.* The Joyces of Joyces' 
country held their possessions until the middle of the seventeenth century 
up to the Cromwellian confiscation ; but some of the family are still in 
possession of extensive property. 

The O'Hallorans, MacConroys, and O'Kynes (or O'Heneys), possessed, 
before the Joyces, the territory known as *' Joyces' Country," which was 
anciently called Hij-OrUen. 

Thomas de Jorse had a brother 
Walter, and another, Eoland.

* Joy : Writing to the author, a friend of this family in Pennsylvania, United 
States, America, says that the late Chief Baron Joy was a native of Belfast : that all 
the members of his family have held a prominent place in that town for many genera- 
tions ; that they are descendants of a French Huguenot who settled in Ireland, being 
obliged to leave France in consequence of religious intolerance ; that it was the " Joy" 
family who introduced the manufacture of paper in Belfast ; and that the establish- 
ment of The Belfast Neios Letter — the oldest provincial Newspaper except one in 
Ireland— is to be ti'aced to their intelligence and energy. 

Other eminent authorities say that De Jorse, Joes, Jorsey, Jose, Josse, Joy, Joyes, 
SJioey, Joyce, Toe, Yoes are all difierent forms of sirname for the one family, named in 
Irish, Seoaigh, whom MacFirbis mentions as of "The Welshmen of Ireland." The 
name Josse may still be traced in " Villers Saint Josse," and " Josse- Sur-Mer," in that 
part of France anciently called Armoric Gaul. 

t Ulick : This name implies a marriage alliance with the " Bourke" family. — See 
the origin of the name Ulick, in note, * William, p. 58, ante. 

t Tioboid na Caislein : This Theobald was so called because of the castles and 
strongholds he had built, viz. : Doon Castle, near Clifden ; and Castle Kirk, on an 
island of Lough Corrib, commanding the entrance to his territory in that direction. 
He also built a stronghold near Clonbur, on the eastern boundary of his territory, and, 
it is believed, the Abbey of Ross Hill, adjacent thereto. He ruled from 1570 to 1600. 

Renvyle (or Kinvile) Castle, which commands the entrance to Killery Bay, and 
which originally belonged to the O'Hallorans of West Connaught, afterwards became 
the property of the Joyces ; and was once unsuccessfully attacked by the famous Grace 
O'Malley, the mother of Toby Bourke (or Tioboid na Liii»rje), above mentioned who 
(seep. 62, ant€)\s No. 28 on " The Bourkes, Lords Viscount Mayo" genealogy. 

§ Castle: See O'Flaherty's Tar ConnacJd (or "West Connaught"), p. 119, Note a.

John, the third son of Shane Ban, who is No. 23 on the " Joyce" (No. 1) 

* Edivard : Blake, in his Letters from the Irish Highlands (1823), says of this 
Edward, or " Big Ned," as he was called : . . . " Big Ned Joyce being between 
six and seven feet in height and large in proportion ; from the roof (of his house) hung 
down stores of smoked geese and mutton, instruments of fishing, and other articles 
which showed the remains of former prosperity." 

t Sons : These four sons had twenty-five male children, of whom twenty-one were 
living in 1877 ; varying in stature from 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet 6 inches. Henry D. 
Inglis, in his work on Ireland, written in 1837, says : 

" The Joyces are a magnificent race of men ; the biggest, and stoutest, and tallest 
I have seen in Ireland . . . but Jack Joyce (No. 23 on this Genealogy) is huge 
even among them. He is as near akin to a giant as a man can well be, without being 
every bit a giant. In breadth, height, muscle, and general aspect, he is like a man — 
if not of another race — the descendant of another race. He looks upon himself as a 
sort of King of that country — Joyces' Country — as indeed he is." 

X Vatrick : We are pleased to find by the report of the Land Court, presided over 
by Judge Ormsby, that, in November, 1882, this Patrick Joyce, of Mounterowen 
House, was declared the purchaser in fee of the townland of Mounterowen West, upon 
which he (in 1888) resides; and also the adjoining village of Culloghbeg. And we 
congratulate Mr. Patrick Joyce upon his thus regaining even a part of the once vast 
patrimony of his ancestors, of which they were deprived by the Cromwellian Con- 
fiscations in Ireland.

family AlacCeachraigh (" ceachrach :" Irish, lovable), which was anglicised 
MacKeighry, and modernized Keary. This family is quite distinct from 
" Keary," No. 1 and No. 2, of the county Meath ; and from those families 
who write their name Carey. 

The Keary s (or MacKeighry s) of the county Galway once held large 
possessions in that county ; but, like other families of the old Irish race 
who stood by Faith and Fatherland in the dark and evil days of the past 
in Ireland, their broad lands were confiscated and handed over to ruthless 

Lineal descendants of that brave old race are still living in the neigh- 
bourhood of Loughrea, Craughwell, and Portumna ; and, as far as worldly 
goods are concerned, they may well say in the words of the poet : 

"That all but Faith and Honour is lost." 

Four generations ago, one of the family migrated to Woodford, where 
the present representative of the family, Mr. Patrick Keary, occupies a 
respectable position in that now historic locality ; in the stirring scenes 
connected with which we find him, as a " Nationalist," taking an active 
part on the side of the oppressed. The son of that man who settled at 
Woodford, was : 

2. Timotbyt Keary (died 1848), 
who was a " United Irishman," in 
the Irish Insurrection of 1798. 
He married Miss O'Kelly of 

Craughwell, and had one 
child : 

3. Patrick, who married Mary- 
Anne, dau. of Thomas Lally,]: of 

* John : John Keary, who settled in Slane, had issue ; the Kearys of Martry, co. 
Meath (living in 1SS8) are his descendants. 

t Timothy : This Timothy, his son Patrick, and their wives, were buried in the 
old Abbey churchyard within the demesne of Portumna Castle. 

+ Lally : Thomas Lally's two sons, John and Laurence, were compelled to fly the 
coimtry, consequent on the troublous times of 1835 and 1836, when the "Ribbon" 
conspiracy was an active organization in that part of Ireland. These two " outlaws" 
settled down in Canada, where their descendants now occupy independent positions. —

The family of Kearney or O'Cearnaigh held extensive possessions in the 
county Tipperary long before the English invasion. "Kearney Castle," 
Cashel, erected in 1199 (one of the towers of which is still in good preser- 
vation, and occupied as a residence), together with a large part of the city 
of Cashel, and extensive estates in the neighbourhood, belonged to the 
family, and were confiscated at various periods by the English in Ireland. 
The O'Cearnaigh family were " Hereditary Keepers* of St. Patrick's 

* Keepers : The following curious memorial of this fact exists on The Records, in 
Dublin, found written on a paper covering "The last Will and Testament of one Philip 
English, taken from the Eegistiy of Cashel and signed by the Chapter Clerk :" 

"Here foUoweth a list of such Tythes as belong to the economy of St. Patrick's 
Church of Cashel whereof I had the Letting from the year 1643 to 16-49." 

Then at the end of a long list of the "Tythes," is the following : 

"Besides £10 that was reserved upon Mr. Kearney on consideration of St. 
Patrick's Rites and other obligations usually paid throuout the Province, of Ancient 
Custom, to Mr. Kearney in honour of St. Patrick." 

The following is the inscription on the part of St. Patrick's Crozier, which is now 
incorporated in the Crozier of His Grace, the Most Rev. Dr. Croke, Archbishop of 
Cashel, as successor to the illustrious Archbishop Slattery, whose name is mentione 
in the inscription : 

" Partem bacnli pastoralis hoc argento inclusam lignoque et fei'ro constantem 
aiunt ex traditione esse partem baculi Sti. Patricii per Multa saecula apud Centum 
O'Keamey deFethard religiose servata. Eam a posteris istius Gentis sibi traditum in

Crozier," which was also called Kearney Cruse, and passing over the 
collateral branches of the family, and remote periods, we find still existing 
in the northern transept of the Cathedral forming part of the magnificent 
ruins of the "Eock of Cashel," a remarkable tomb of the Kearney family, 
the beautiful carvings of which represent the straggle of the Powers of 
good and evil ; and in the Nave, the Tomb of Nicholas O'Kearney, who 
was the owner of vast estates in the neighbourhood, and who died 3rd 
September, 1460. Aongus, brother of Eochaidh Ball-dearg, who (seep. 
155, Vol. I.) is No. 94 on the " O'Brien" (Kings of Thomond) pedigree, 
was the ancestor of O'Cearnaigh (Chaisil); anglicised Kearney, Kearny,

I. David Kearney (b. 1568, d. 
1625), who inherited large 
estates, and was consecrated 
Archbishop of Cashel ; and 
who, " besides other magni- 
ficent acts of charity, provided 
for the support of a large nam-

Casselienses Anno Domini MDCCCXLVIII." 

St. Patrick is believed to have three croziers : one it is supposed was given to St. 
Bridget ; the chief one was burned by the English in Dublin in 1533 ; and the third (the 
" Kearney Cruse"), is that which is incorporated in Archbishop Oroke's crozier. 

* Donchadh : This Donchadh (or Donough) had Pilip (or Philip), who had Risteard 
{or Richard), who had John. This PiUp (or " Philip") Kearney, of Ballyduagh, was 

transplanted to Connaught by Cromwell, A.D. 1653-1654 See p. 346 of our Irish 

Landed Gentry ivhen Cromivell came to Ireland. 

In page ,393, ibid., we find, among the names of the " Forty-Nine Officers," those 
of James, John, Patrick, Paul, Thomas, and William Kearney, and of James, Nicholas, 
Paul, and William Kearny. In p. 361, ibid., under the heading "Connaught 
Certificates," we find the name of Bryan O'Kearney, who, we are of opinion, is the 
Bryan O'Kearny mentioned in p. 41)4, ibid., a;mong the "Names of Persons in the 


ber of Irish Ecclesiastics in 
foreign Colleges." Letters of 
his still extant show that he 
was in Paris in 1602.

* Keating: Very Eev. Geofirey Keating, D.D., a distinguished Irish historian, 
kvas born about 1550, at Bm'ges or Tubrid, near Clogheen, in the county Tipperary. 
He went to school at an early age, and at sixteen was sent to a foreign college 
^probably Salamanca), to complete his studies and qualify himself for the priesthood. 
He returned to Ireland in 1610, after twenty-four years' residence abroad, and was 
appointed curate to the Rev. Eugene Duhy in his native parish. His fame as a pi'eacher 
jsoon extended ; and the building of a new church at Tubrid occupied his care. About 
^hat period he produced some religious works, and conceived the idea of collecting 
Imaterials for, and writing, an Irish history. In one of the seasons of Catholic perse- 
cution which then occasionally swept over Ireland, when laws, always in force, were 
attempted to be carried out, he was obliged to secrete himself for many years in the 
fastnesses of the Glen of Aherlow, and thus found leisure for the completion of his great 
iwork. According to one account, the Uniformity Act was put in force specially 
jagainst him, for having dared to protest against outrages perpetrated upon some of his 
flock by a neighbouring magnate. Speaking of Keating's History of Ireland, which 
[was written in Irish, O'Curry says : "This book is written in the modified Gaedhlic of 
[Keating's own time ; and although he has used but little discretion in his selections from 
bid records, and has almost entirely neglected any critical examination of his authori- 
ties, still his book is a valuable one, and not at all, in my opinion, the despicable 
production that it is often ignorantly said to be" . . . Keating's Hisfor>j extends 
from the earliest times to the Anglo-Norman invasion. It is specially valuable 

^i containing numerous references to MSS. which are no longer in existence . . . 
wo excellent MS. copies of the original Irish, by John Torna O'AIulcoury, a con- 
temporary of Keating, are now in the Library of Trinity College, Dublin. — Webb.

James Sheridan Knowles, a distinguished actor, dramatist, author, and preacher, 
was born in Cork, 12th May, 1784. His father, James Knowles, who was first cousin 
of Richard Brinsley Sheridan, was a schoolmaster of high reputation, and the editor of an 
edition of Walker^s Pronouncing Dictionary, at which he is said to have laboured for 
thirty years. He visited Dublin in 1808, and resided for a time with his relations — the 
Le Fanus, who endeavoured to dissuade him from going on the stage. In 1809 he acted 
at Waterford, in company with Edmund Keau ; and there published a volume of 
Fugitive Pieces of Poetry, and his drama of Leo, or the Qipsy. His father and he after- 
wards established a school at Belfast ; Sir Joseph Napier was one of his scholars. In 
Belfast he produced his drama of Brian Boroimhe [Boru]. ' Caius Gracclms followed in 
1815. At the request of his friend Kean he next wrote his great tragedy of Virginius, 
which was brought out at Glasgow, and afterwards in London. William Tell appeared 
in 1825, establishing the author's reputation as one of the greatest dramatists of the 
age. Other works followed in quick succession ; and he acquired a right to be con- 
sidered a great actor as well as a great writer, by impersonations in his plays of 
The Hunchbacl', and The Wife. He was also the author of several novels. In 1836 he 
visited America ; some time after his return, ill-health obliged him to give up the stage, 
and he appeared as a lecturer on oratory and the drama. In his later years his mind 
received a theological bias ; he wrote on religious subjects, and ultimately became a 
Baptist preacher. From 1849 he had been in the receipt of a pension on the Civil List, 
of £200 a year. Besides numerous minor writings, his works in AUibone's list number 
twenty-six. He died at Torquay, on 1st December, 1862, aged 78. A posthumous play, 
Alexina, or True unto Death, in Two Acts, was produced in 1866. Of him Allan 
Cunningham writes : " The poetry of his dialogues is the poetry of passion ... his 
strength lies in home-bred affections : his Virginius, his Beqgar's Daughter, and his 
Wife of Mantua, all bear evidence of this, and contain scenes of perfect truth and 
reality, such as no modern dramatist surpasses— he touches the heart and is safe."

* Clonciirry : According to our modest research, Sir Nicholas Lawless, the first 
Baron of Cloncurry (b. 1735), would be son of this James Lawless. But, according to 
Burke's Feerage, Sir Nicholas was son of Robert (of Abington, county Limerick), soa 
of John Lawless, of Shank Hill, county Dublia. 

Sir Nicholas, originally a Roman Catholic, sought in France, in early life, those 
rights from which, on accoiiat of his religion, he was debarred in Ireland. " Nettled," 
we are told, "at religious partiality shown towards his titled neighbours by the 
French clergy, he sold his RoueQ estate ; returaed home, and turned Protestant." 
Engaging in trade, he became a woollen merchant and banker ; was created a Baronet 
in 1776 ; and elevated to the peerage, as Baron Cloncurry, in 1789. He died in 1799. 

Valentine Brown Lawless, his son, the second Baron Cloncurry, was born iu 
Merrion Square, on the 19fch August, 1773. He was educated at Portarliugton, and at 
Dr. Burrowes' school at Blackrock ; and graduated at Trinity College, Dublin, in 1791. 
He three himself into the circle of which Lord Edward Fitzgerald, the Emmets, and 
Sampson, were leading spirits in his time, After a tour on the Continent, he entered 
at the Middle Temple in 1795 ; still keeping up the closest intimacy with the leaders 
of the United Irishmen, although not, overtly at least, entering into any of their 
revolutionary plans. In consequence of these relations he was arrested in London, ia 
June, 1798, and committed to the Tower. The Duke of Leinster, Curran, and Grattan, 
who happened to be visiting him at the time of his arrest, were also taken into 
custody, but were immediately liberated. This imprisonment lasted about six weeks. 
Forbidden by his father to return to Ireland, then in the throes of the Insurrection, 
he made a tour of England, on horseback. On the 14th April, 1799, he was again 
arrested under the Habeas Corpus Suspension Act, and again committed to the Tower, 
where he remained until the expiration of the Act, iu 18J1. In the course of those 
two-and-twenty months, he lost his grandfather, his father, and the lady to whom he

Jenkinstown, and had five sons, two 
of whom d. young : 

I. Richard, who, fighting for 
James II., was killed at 
Limerick in 169L

Captain Peter Levallen belonged to a county Cork family, and resided 
at Waterstown, about twelve miles distant from the city. 

He served in the Army of King James II., at the battle of Newtown 
Butler, for the loss of which he was held responsible by his superiors. It 
appears that during the fight, Lord Mountcashel, the Jacobite Commander 
on the occasion, seeing his right severely pressed by the "VVilliamites, who 
were superior in numbers, ordered some of the forces on his left to be sent 
to the aid of those on his right. The officer who conveyed the order was 
this Captain Levallen, who " blundered" either in receiving or giving the 
word of command ; for, instead of ordering the men to face to the right he 
gave it as "face to the right about :" thus turning the backs of his men to 
the enemy. The soldiers in their rere, seeing those of the front turning 
away from the foe, believed the battle Mas lost ; and fled, pursued by their 
Williamite enemy with dreadful loss. The unfortunate Levallen was 
placed under arrest and sent to Dublin, where he was tried by Court 

was engaged. "We are told," says Webb, "that his father voted for the Union, 
against his conscience, in the hope of obtaining his son's release ; and, before his death, 
he left away from Valentine about £65,000, through fear of confiscation of his 
property by the Government." He succeeded to the title on his father's decease. He 
subsequently paid a lengthened visit to the Uontinent ; in Rome, he was on intimate 
terms with the Pope, whose body-guard, strange to say, then consisted of a squadron 
of British hussars ! He was created a Peer of the United Kingdom, and a Privy 
Councillor, in 1831. In 1849 he published an interesting volume of [Personal 
Recollections : the summing up of that work shows that his hostility to the Act of 
Union continued imabated. Lord CJoncurry was twice married ; he died on the 28th 
October, 1855, and was buried in the family mausoleum at Lyons, county Kildare. 
The present Lord Cloncurry (living in 1888), the 4th Baron, is his grandson. 

* John : A grandson of this John, was John Lawless, an Irish politician, who was 
born about 1772. Educated for the Bar, he was refused admission by Lord Clare, oa 
account of his well-known revolutionaiy sentiments, and his intimacy with Thomas 
Addis Emmet. He then became partner with his father in a brewery ; but, business 
not suiting his tastes, he edited the IrisJiman, in Belfast, became a leading member of 
the Liberal party, and occupied a prominent position during the agitation for Catholic 
Emancipation. He was foremost in opposition to the "Veto" as well as the " wings" 
which Government attempted to attach to Emancipation ; namely, the payment of the 
Catholic clergy, and the disfranchisement of the forty-shilling freeholders. His un- 
flinching integrity gained for him the title of "Honest Jack Lawless." He died ia 
ndon, on the Sth of August, 1837. j 


Martial, found guilty, and shot to death. At the place of execution he 
protested that he delivered the " word" as he had received it, which many- 
believed. His fate was much regretted. He was married to Jane , 

but we have not been able to ascertain if he left any issue. His estates in 
the county Cork were confiscated by the Williamite party.

This family is descended from the ancient house of the Lords Lindesay of 
the Byres (a house now represented by the earl of Lindesay), which family 
descends from the common ancestor of the present earl of Crawford and 
Balcarres ; and the Lords Spynie {title extinct), but which house was in 
1880 represented by H. A. Lindsay-Carnegie, of Spynie and of Kimbleth- 
mont, county Forfar, Scotland. 

When enumerating the families that have sprung from the house of 
Byres, Lord Lindsay, in his *' Lives of the Lindsays," thus speaks of the 
Loughry branch : 

" Of the remaining branches of the House of Byres none now survive in wealth 
or estate, except the families of Loughry, in the county of Tyrone, and of Drum, and 
Craigballe, otherwise styled of Cahoo." — See Lives of the Lindsays, Vol. I., pp. 320, 
441, and Vol. II., p. 297. Also Vol. I., pp. 318, 325, 3S5.

* Lodge : John Lodge, the distinguished archivist, was bom in England early ii i 
the 18th century, and was educated at Cambridge University. In 1751, he wai i 
appointed Deputy-Keeper of the Bermingham Tower Records, in Dublin Castle ; and i 
three years afterwards, his Peerage of Ireland was published in 4 vols. 8vo. in Dublin i 
In 1759 he was appointed Deputy-Clerk and Keeper of the Rolls. In 1770 he published I 
anonymously The Usage of Holding Parliaments in Ireland ; and in 1772, also anony 
mously, a valuable collection of historical tracts entitled Desiderata Curiosa Hihernica 
2 vols. Svo. He died at Bath 22nd February, 1774. His wonderful collection od 
Indexes remained in the possession of his family for nine years, until 1783, when thej ) 
were deposited in the office of the Civil Department of the Chief Secretary to the ( 
Lord Lieutenant, in return for a life pension of £100 a year to his widow, and £200 i 
year to his son, the Rev. William Lodge. Mervyn Archdall, in 1789, published hii 
edition of Lodge's Peerage of Ireland, in 7 vols. Dr. Reeves writes: "In thi 
depai'tment of genealogy Lodge was the most distinguished compiler that Ireland has 
produced ; Archdall is to him what Harris is to Ware." The only survivor of John 
Lodge's nine children was the Rev. William Lodsie, above mentioned, who was in 1790 
Chancellor of Armagh Cathedral, and rector of Kilmore, in the same diocese ; through 
whom several of his father's books came ioto the Armagh Library ; and a further 
accession to the same Library was made about 1867 by the purchase from his grandson, 
son of Rev. William Lodge, rector of Killybegs, of a large collection of his grand- 
father's papers.

iecoud, but eldest surviving son was Sir Dudley, of Rathfarnham, county Dublin, who 
)n the 2nd December, 1593, was knighted by Sir William Fitzwilliam, Lord Deputy of 
treland. From Su- Adam Loftus, eldest son of Sir Dudley, of Rathfarnham, descended 
Viscount Lisburne (extinct 1691). Lucia, daughter and heiress of the last Viscount

Wharton, inherited the estates. The second son of Sir Adam Loftus, of Rathfarnham,

The graceful deportment of Archbishop Adam Loftus at a Cambridge examination 

ittracted Queen Elizabeth's notice ; and, after his ordination in 1559, he was appointed 

chaplain to Dr. Craike, Bishop of Kildare. Loftus was advanced rapidly in the 

:hurch ; when but twenty-seven, he was consecrated Archbishop of Armagh ; six years 

later, he exchanged Armagh for Dublin. With him a general system of education was 

a favourite project ; by his influence, in 1570, an Act was passed directing that free 

[ schools should be established in the principal town of each diocese, at the cost of the 

(blergy. He was appointed Lord Chancellor in 1573 ; and was foremost in supporting 

' tind carrying out Queen Ehzabeth's foundation of Trinity College (of which he was the 

first Provost), on the site of the suppressed Monastery of All Hallows. He expired at 

the palace of St. Sepulchre's, Dublin, 5th April, 1605, and was buried in St. Patrick's

The ancient family of Loivther, Lowthre, or Louthre, is of great antiquity in 
bhe county of Westmoreland. Harrison, in page 370 of his History of the 
County of York, deduces the line from Arkfrith, a Danish noble, who held, 
great possessions in the North of England, in the time of Canute or Knut. 
He was succeeded by his son :

The Lucys of Doogary claim descent from William Lucye, of Hanley, in 
Oxfordshire, England, whose grandson, Anthony, was a freeholder in 
Magherstafanagh, county of Fermanagh. This fact is proved beyond 
dispute by the following extract from a manuscript history of the Families 
of British descent in the county of Fermanagh, written a.d. 1718-19, and 
which formerly belonged to Sir William Betham. On his death it was 
sold to the late Sir Thomas Phillips, and is now (a.d. 1887) in the pos- 
session of his son-in-law, the Rev. John Fenwick, of Thulestane House, 
Cheltenham {Betham MSS., No. 13293, page 238). It is entitled : 

" An Alphahetical Table of y^ most remarkable British families in ye county 
of Fermanagh, proceeding according to ye first letter of each sirname, ivherein by 
ye pages annexed to their names ye description may be found in ye book at ye same

There is no doubt that the family whose pedigree I am now tracing 
■were connected by blood with the great Baronial family *' Lucy of Charle

The ancient family of Ludloic derived its sirname from the town and castle 
of that name, in the co. Salop, England ; and flourished there till the 
middle of the thirteenth century, when it ended in heiresses ; and the castle

and lands passed into the possession of Gilbert de Lacey, Lord of Trim 
and Ludlow (a.d. 1240), whose daughter married Peter de Geneva. (28 
Hen. in.) 

This Maud de Lacey had Ludlow castle for her portion, and married 
I secondly, Geoffrey de Genneville, who died 20th October, 1314, leaving 
three sons, Peter, Geoffrey, and Simon. Peter de Geneville married Joan 
daughter of Hugh le Brun, and had Joan, married to Eoger Mortimer, 
Earl of March (1326), through whom the representation of the Ludlows 
and other ancient families passed to the Lowthers, Clebornes, Middletons, 
and others derived from the marriage of Elizabeth Mortimer's daughter 
(Elizabeth Percy) to John, seventh Lord Clifford, in 1437. 

Another family, called Ludlow (from the town of that name) is said to 
have settled at Hill Deverill, in Wiltshire, about 1387, of which William 
Ludlow is said to have been the founder. From him descended : 

1. Henry Ludlow, Knt., of 
Maiden Bradley, co.AYilts (b. 1587),

Luttrell, of Luttrellstown, near Lucan, county Dublin (by a daughter of William 
Segrave of Cabra, also of the county Dublin), was born about the year 1655, and held 
several important offices in Ireland under King James II. ; in whose behalf he raised 
at his own expense a regiment of horse, at whose head he fought at Aughrim and 
Limerick. The loss of the battle of Aughrim is principally attributed to his treason ; 
as is also the surrender of Limerick. Lord Macaulay says that the Government of the 
day attributed the death of Henry Luttrell, " The Traitor" (d. 1717), to revenge, on 
the part of the " Papists." 

According to O'Callaghan, eighty years after the death of said Henry Luttrell, 
Lis grave, near Luttrellstown, was violated, and his skull was broken to pieces with 
a pickaxe. 

The following extract is from Watty Cox's Magazine, July, 1809 : 


" The account of Brigadier General Kane, who served in the army under Ginckle 
before Limerick, we give in his own words : ' Our general marched in the greatest 
haste to Limerick, where we found the enemy had taken up the same ground on the 
Thomond side of the river, they had done the preceding year, and for the convenience 
of being supplied with necessaries we were obliged to take up the ground on the 
other side, but our general soon found that Limerick was not to be taken in any reason- 
able time unless he could dislodge the enemy and to invest it round. Now the difficult 
matter was, in passing the river upon them at this place, for he could not quit the 
ground he was on for the above reason, and the enemy being sensible of this, they kept 
strict guards constantly patrolling by night on the river side, but drew out of reach of 
our cannon by day. 

" However our general found means to have a correspondence with Colonel 
Luttrell, who, having a plentiful fortune in the kingdom, and loth to lose it, promised

our passing, which was such a surprise to them, that the foot, most of them naked, 
without making the least resistance, fled to the town, where the gates being shut against

from the walls, by their too eager pursuit of them.

the farthest part of the county Clare, and now he invested Limerick, which brought on

to the wars in Ireland.' " 

After the war, the same Magazme states that Henry Luttrell had great influence 
■with Ginckle and King William, and obtained a grant of his elder brother's estates, 
and amongst them of Luttrellstown. He continued outwardly to profess the Catholic 
religion, till his death. In 1702, King William appointed him a Major-General in the 
Dutch Service ; but after the death of William, he retired to Luttrellstown, where he 
lived in constant fears of assassination, and at length actually was assassinated. On 
the evening of the 3rd November (others say on the 22nd October) 1717, as he was 
returning from a coff'ee-house, in passing through Stafford-street, Dublin, in a Sedan 
Chair, he was shot. According to the reports circulated at the time, it was a black- 
smith of his own name, residing in Bridge-street, Dublin, who did so, in the hope of 
succeeding to his estates ; believing that the Colonel was not married to the mother of 
his children. These children were afterwards acknowledged as his heirs, and th« 
eldest son was the father of Lord Carhampton. 

See same Magazine^ for the anecdote of "The Limerick or Aughrim Pass." 
Luttrell possessed the confidence of King William till his death, 

Luttrell's eldest brother Simon died in 1698, childless ; and the line became extinct 
in 1829, on the death, s. p. of the Traitor's grandson. Earl of Carhampton, who sold

Duke of Ormond, and had Charles MacCarthy, Lord Muskerry, their 
eldest son, who was slain on board the " Eoyal Charles," on the 3rd June, 
1665, in a novel engagement under the Duke of York with the Dutch, j 
This Donogh was amongst the last to lay down his arms, being defeated by • | 
Ludlow in Kerry, in June, 1652 ; and, on the 27th of that month, was 
obliged to surrender his last stronghold, Koss Castle, Killarney, together 
with his army of 5,000 men. He then passed into Spain. Charles II. 
created him " Earl of Clancarty," and his estates were restored to him. 
He died in London, in August, 1665. 

Justin MacCarthy, Yiscount Mountcashel, was a younger son of said 
Donogh. He mar. Lady Arabella Wentworth, second daughter of the

Hugh MacGinnis, brother of Sir Arthur"^' MacGuinness, of Eathfriland, 
who in 1623 was created the first "Viscount Iveagh," county Down, and 
who (see Vol. L, p. 312; and p. 237, ante), is No. 124 on the "Mac- 
Guinness" pedigree, was the ancestor of this branch of that family. It may 
be here mentioned that the Irish family MacAonghuis (of which ^'Mac- 
Guinness," " MacGinnis," " Magennis," and " McGinnis" are some of the 
angliciped forms) were the ancient Lords of Iveagh, a territory in 
Dalriada, now the county Down. "In 1314," writes Burke, "when 
Edward IL sought the aid of the Irish chieftains, he directed a letter to 
* Admilis MacAnegus, Dud Hibernicorum de Onenagh,' he being then The 
MacGennis; Art McGennis,lLord of Iveagh, was treacherously taken 
prisoner, in 1380, by Edmund Mortimer, Earl of March." Commencing 
with the aforesaid Hugh, the following is the pedigree :

In 1567 Queen Elizabeth ap- 
pointed hitn Captain of his nation ; 
in 1"585 he attended a Parliament 
convened in Dublin, to which the 
Irish chiefs who were obedient to 
the Queen were summoned ; and in 
1595 we find him, according to the 
Four Masters, " in open rebellion." 
In 1602, "he came in," and dying 
shortly afterwards, was succeeded

129. Edward Madden: son of 
John j born 1739, died 1829, in his 
91st year; was an eminent mer- 
chant in Dublin before the Union ; 
was a Catholic Delegate in 1782; 
had a sister Jane, b. in 1734. This

coincidence was, like her husband, 
the twenty-first and youngest child 
of her father, the late John Elmslie 
of Berners-street, London, and of 
Surge Island Estate, Jamaica. This 
lady, who survived her husband, 
being of high intellectual attain- 
ments, shared largely in his literary 
labours ; and when in Cuba, where 
Doctor E. R. Madden was then 
engaged in the abolition of the Slave 
Trade, embraced her husband's re-

II. Thomas-More Madden, who 

is No. 131 on this pedigree. 
In 1824, Doctor R. R. Madden, 
in company with the late Sir Moses 
Montifiore, visited the Turkish 
Empire, where he remained for 
about four years, and of which he 
published an account in his Travels 
in the East. Subsequently Doctor 
Madden practised as a physician ; 
at first at Naples, and afterwards in 
London, and at St. Leonard's near 
London. In 1833, however, being 
deeply interested in the cm^i-slavery 
movement then in progress, he 
relinquished his practice and entered 
the public service as special Magis- 
trate for the abolition of slavery in 
Jamaica ; and subsequently was 
appointed British Representative 
and Acting Judge Advocate in the 
International Commission in the 
Havana, for that purpose. In 1841 
he was selected by Lord John Rus- 
sell as Commissioner of Inquiry on 
the Western Coast of Africa ; in 
1847 he was appointed to the 
Colonial Secretaryship of Western 
Australiaj; and soon after his return 
home from Australia he was ap- 
pointed Secretary of the Loan Fund 
Board in Dublin, which he con- 
tinued to hold for nearly thirty 
years, when he retired from it in 
1880. Notwithstanding the absorb- 
ing nature of his public duties, Dr. 
Madden found time to cultivate his 
literary tastes, f^and acquire dis- 
tinction as an author. He has 
written largely and excellently inithe 
departments of politics, sociology, 
history, travels, and belles lettrcs. His 
works are so varied and numerous — 
amounting to no less than forty- 
seven published volumes, besides a 

vast number of contributions in 
prose and verse to magazines and 
reviews, as well as to the newspaper 
press with which he was connected 
at home and abroad during a con- 
siderable portion of his earlier years 
— that we cannot refer to them ia 
detail, but must content ourselves 
with briefly indicating some of the 
most important. Of these perhaps 
the best known is his History of the 
United Irishmen, which make up a 
series of seven volumes, the publi- 
cation of which commenced in 1842, 
and terminated in 1866, and has 
been since more than once repub- 
lished in England and America. 
Doctor R. R. Madden, fortified up 
to his last moment by the sacra- 
ments of the Catholic Church, died 
at 3 Vernon-terrace, Booterstown, 
CO. Dublin, in his 88th year, on the 
5th of February, 1886; and was 
interred with his father in the old 
churchyard of Donnybrook, near

In Boswell's Johnson's Tour of the Hebrides, under date 13th September, 
1773, it is written of an interview of Doctor Samuel Johnson with Miss 
Flora MacDonald, at Kingsbury, in the Isle of Skye (the morning after 
Dr. Johnson slept in the same bed in which Prince Charlie, the grandson 
of King James IL, slept in 1746, when, with £30,000 as a reward for his 
apprehension, he was preparing to escape from the emissaries of the English 
Government), that Miss Flora relates an account of the escape to Dr. 
Johnson ; and Boswell makes Johnson say : " All this should be written 
down." We cannot, however, find any work in which that was written or 

But there is a tradition in this family, that when Prince Charlie failed 
in 1745-6 to recover the English Crown, he retired to the Hebrides of 
Scotland, where he found refuge with the Highland clan of MacLeod, 
Being hardy fishermen, they manned a fishing boat, and one of the 
INIacLeod clan landed Prince Charlie safely on the Continent, free from his 
pursuers. _ On his return, MacLeod, to escape detection for that loyal act 
towards his legitimate Prince, put in with his boat to the retired fishing 
village of Rush, in the county Dublin, and there remained. Whether 
intentionally, or to conform the orthography to the English pronunciation, 


the sirname became McCloud, and was so written by himself and his 

We are unable to trace the descent from the first McCloud, of Rush, 
down to John McCloud (born about 1820). Commencing with that John, 
the pedigree is as follows : 

1. John McCloud, a fisherman 
at Rush, county Dublin, married, in 
1845, Margaret, dau. of Michael 
Byrne* of Rush ; and in 1847 emi- 
grated to the United States, 
America, and settled in New York. 
In 1848, John and his wife re- 
moved therefrom and settled at 
Norwich, Connecticut, where he re- 
linquished the seafaring for the 
mercantile business ; and where said 
John and his brother William are 
living in 1888. Their sisters Mary 
and Margaret are living unm. at 
Rush, CO, Dublin, in 1888. John 
McCloud had one surviving son and 
four daughters : 

I. Richard, of whom presently. 

I. Margaret (b. 1850), who mar. 
at Norwich, in 1868, Patrick 
Cassidy,f M.D., of Norwich, a 
native of the county Tyrone, 
Ireland ; and who with his

La Plata County, Colorado, U.S.A. : 
only surviving son of John ; was b. 
at Rush, on the 17th of May, 1846 ; 
and, in 1849, was (by John Creigh- 
ton of Rush) brought to his parents 
at Norwich, Conn. This Richard 
was educated in the Catholic and 
Parochial Schools at Norwich, and 
graduated at the Norwich Free 
Academy, in 1866, taking the Prize 
Medal for Oratory in 1865. From 
1866 to 1869 he engaged in the 
paper stock and old metal business, 
assisted by his father and grand- 
father (Michael Byrne) ; and with 
lucky real estate investments he had 
accumulated some .£2,000 or ten 
thousand dollars, when he quitted 
business in 1869. In that year he 
removed from Norwich, Conn., to 
New York City, to accept the office 
of Foreign Export Clerk at the 
Custom House ; and at the same 
time to attend the Columbia Col- 
lege Law School. He graduated as

eminence. His reputation throughout the State of Connecticut for his skill and cures 
is marvellous.

MC C. [part V. 

a LL.B., in May, 1872 ; and in 
November, 1872, he resigned the 
Custom House appointment. He 
was appointed by President Grant, 
and served under Collectors Grin- 
nell. Murphy, and Chester A. 
Arthur, who afterwards was Presi- 
dent of the United States. He 
went to Hartford, Conn., to pursue 
the profession of his choice, and 
there remained in the active practice 
of the law until the spring of 1883, 
when he removed to Silverton, 
Colorado, where he resided, as the 
Attorney for several Silver and Gold 
Mining Companies, owned by New 
England and New York Capitalists, 
until September, 1886, when he was 
appointed Eegistrar of the United 
States Land Office at Durango, 
Colo., a place he now (1888) holds. 
This ofl&ce controls all the United 
States Government land — agricul- 
tural, mineral, and coal, in South 
Western Colorado. While in Hart- 
ford, Conn., he was City Prosecut- 
ing Attorney, for three years ; City 
Common Councilman, two years ; 
and Alderman, two years. In 
Silverton, Colo., he was Deputy 

District Attorney for two years ; 
managed gold and silver mines in 
which he was and is part-owner ; 
and for six months edited and 
managed a weekly newspaper — The 
San Juan Herald, while the owner 
was on a visit to the Eastern States. 

Richard McCloud mar., at Nor- 
wich, Conn., on the 10th November, 
1870, Ellen A., dau. of Michael 
McQuirk^ (by his wife Anastacia 
Princely), both natives of Slane, in 
the county Meath ; and have ona 
child, a daughter, born at Hartford, 
Conn., in May, 1873, and living in 
1888. They have since had no 
other children. 

It may be well to mention that, 
in American Politics, Richard 
McCloud Avas a Republican when 
he became a voter in 1868; and 
made many speeches for that Party 
in Connecticut and Massachusetts, 
in that year. When Tilden was in 
1877 "defrauded" of the Presidency, 
McCloud became a Democrat, and 
has since so remained. Richard 
McCloud has, we find, also a long 
record in connection with the 
" Fenian Brotherhood," in America.

t Michael Byrne, of Rush, co. Dublin, belonged to the ancient family of theO'Byrnes, 
chiefs in the county Wicklow (see the " O 'Byrne" pedigree, pp. 610-622, in Vol. I.). 


both of whom emigrated to Norwich, Connecticut, U.S.A., in 1850. 
issue by that marriage were two daughters : 


I. Annie, b. 1851 ; was in 1870 
taken from Norwich to New 
Orleans, La., by her uncle John 
Byrne, and there entered the 
Convent of the Sacred Heart. 
She died at St. Mary's Infir-

Most of these children were born 
at Allyn's Point, a hamlet on the 
Thomes Eiver, seven miles from 
Norwich ; but the family afterwards 
returned to Norwich where they 
now reside. 

William McCloud, like his bro- 
ther John, was a fisherman, at 
Rush, county Dublin; and a sea- 
man, in the United States. For 
many years he has been engineer 
of stationary engines, and employed 
by the Norwich and Worcester 
Railroad Company, at the Coal 
Docks at Norwich and Allyn's 

He emigrated to the United States in 1856, and settled at Norwich, Conn. He had 

with him to America his two unmar. daughters, Mary and Anne ; and his sons 

Joseph, John, and James. His daughters, Margaret and Ellen, had preceded him to 
the United States as wives, respectively, of John and William McCloud, above 
mentioned. The daughter Mary married at Norwich, in 1S57, John Creighton (d. s. p. 
1876), of Rush, county Dublin; and Anne married at Norwich, in 1866, John Kelly, 
of Rush (son of Simon Kelly, also of Rush), and has six surviving children, all livino- 
in Norwich, in 1888. Michael Byrne died at Norwich in 1873, aged 74 years : 

resided there. He is a merchant 
engaged in the grocery and crockery 
business. He mar. a lady of New- 
Orleans, at that place, who died after 
bearing him a son and daughter — the 
son being now over 20 years of age. 
III. James Byrne : third son of Michael, 
left Norwich for New York City in 
1860, aud died in 1872, while a mem- 
ber of the Metropolitan Police. He 
married the widow of Michael Cahill, 
of New York City, and left two sons 
(John and James), and one daughter 
JNlary, now (1888) some 18 years old. 

I. Joseph Bj'rne : eldest son of Michael; 
married in 1859, a Miss McCann (d. 
1887), of Albany, New York, and 
had six children. He resides (in 
1888) in Norwich, Conn. His eldest 
son Michael, is married and lives at 
Norwich ; and his (Joseph's) second

LOCHLAN MacCairill,* the future king, or as also styled the Roydamna or 
royal heir apparent of Ulster (then reduced in size), was in A.D, 1095 
defeated in a great battle at Ard-Achadh (now Ardagh, in the co. Antrim), 
and had to flee ; when he passed over to Carrick, in Ayrshire, Scotland, on 
the borders of Galloway, as now known, but in early times was part of it. 
From him this family is descended. 

While in one account he is stated to have been slain, with a vast 
number of his followers ; in others it is not so, which agrees with the state- 
ment still told in the locality where the battle was fought, and is fully 
supported by the McKerlie history. The lands obtained in Scotland got 
from him the name of "Cairilton," which, from the difference in dialect, 
was locally pronounced " Cair-le-ton," meaning the abode of Cairill. In 
the ancient Irish and Scottish Gaelic, C is hard, and when the Celtic clergy 
of the Irish-Scottish Church were supplanted by those of the Church from 
England, many of the priests, etc., being foreigners, they wrote the names 
in the registers, etc., as they sounded to the ear, and thus in this family 
Cairle became spelled " Kerlie," about the end of the 13th century. The 
chief of the family then possessed and occupied the large and almost impreg- 
nable castle of Cruggleton, in Galloway, about 50 miles S.E. from Cairilton, 
which, with extensive lands, they had wrested from the Norsemen. It 
was some six miles from the famous " Candida Casa," or Priory of 

The McKerlies were of importance in Galloway for centuries. In the 
Crusades, one of them in Palestine was made a knight of the most ancient 
and highest order — that of " Saint Constantine," the insignia of which 
became the family Crest, and is still used. Another of them was the 
constant, closest, and last friend of the immortal Sir William Wallace,* in 
the struggle for Scottish independence. They were together on the 5th 
July, 1305, waiting for Robert the Bruce; and while sleeping, were be- 
trayed by an attendant, and Sir John Stewart, alias Menteith of Arran.

* Wallace : To show the strong feeling which Wallace had for his friend, in 1297, 
he specially marched a force into Galloway to retake Cmggletou Castle for Wm. 
McCairill alias McKerlie. It was considered one of the most daring of his exploits, 
for the castle was considered impregnable, and had to be approached from the sea, and 
the cliff of over 150 feet high climbed. This was done at night under the guidance of 
the owner, his companions being Wallace and Stephen. Once up, and over the 
rampart, the sentinels were slain ; the drawbridge reached and let down ; Wallace blew 
his horn for his men in ambush to rush in, and the English garrison of sixty men slain, 
only two priests and a woman being spared. . . . The castle was 1| acres within 
the walls. It was captm-ed from the McKerlie ancestor through the treachery of a 
guest, Sir John, alias Lord Soulis, a secret adherent of Edward I., of England. 


William MacCairill or McKerlie was slain, and Wallace captured. His 
only son (William) carried on the line, which in direct male descent was 
until 1855 represented by the late Captain Robert McKerlie; and now 
(1888), by his eldest surviving son. 

The descendants of offshoots of the family are to be found in Galloway, 
Ayrshire, etc., and in the North of Ireland. Some of them still spell 
the name with the letter C. 

The chief family suffered greatly at the Reformation. 


William McQuirk was born in the county Meath, Ireland, about 1810. 
He was a carpenter at Conyngham Castle, on the Boyne River, near Slane. 
He married Miss Anderson, about 1830 ; and they emigrated to the United 
States about 1845, settling at Norwich, Connecticut. They brought with 
them Michael McQuirk, born in county Meath, in 1832; Mary McQuirk, 
born in 1836 ; and Elizabeth McQuirk, born in 1840. 

Michael McQuirk married Anastasia Princely* at Norwich, Conn., in 
1851; they have five living children : 1. Ellen-Agnes, born in 1853 ; 2. 
William, born in 1861 ; 3. Mary, born in 1863; 4. Elizabeth, born 1866; 
and 5. Richard, born in 1871. Ellen-Agnes, married Richard McCloud in 
1870 ; Mary married James Duggan, at Norwich, Conn., in 1879. Duggan 
was born at Jewett City, Conn., about 10 miles from Norwich ; his parents 
were natives of the county Kerry, Ireland. He is a wealthy druggist at 
Norwich, Ct., and with his wife has made two visits to Ireland and the 
Continent. They have one child — a son, Jeremiah, born in 1880. The 
other children of Michael McQuirk are unmarried. 

Michael McQuirk is a carpenter and builder. He. has built many of 
the churches and public buildings of Norwich, Ct., and thereabouts. He

and settled in New Jersey, about 1830, The oldest daughter, Anastasia, who married 
Michael McQuirk, was bom in New Jersey about 1833. They moved to Leeds, State 
of Massachusetts, about 1840, with their children — four daughters and one son. The 
eldest daughter married one Cogan at Leeds, Mass. Next eldest daughter married 
Michael McQuirk, at Norwich, Conn. The youngest daughter married Charles L. 
Lyman, now a manufacturer of tables at Charlestown, Mass. ; no children. The son, 
Henry, married a Miss Logne, at Norwich, Conn. ; now (in 1888) lives there ; and has 
five children. Lngue went from North of Ireland, to Norwich, Conn., about 1848. Two 
daughters of Cogan— one 18 and the other 20 years old, and their mother, were drowned 
in the flood at Leeds, Mass., while home on a vacation, from the Northampton, Mass., 
Normal Seminary, qualifying as teachers. This flood is the subject of one of Boyle 
O'Eeilly's verses : " Collins' Ride." Their father, Cogan, had died previously. One 
other daughter, then 15 years old, was a student at the same Normal Seminary, bub 
did not go home ; she was left the only survivor of the family. She taught school, and 
in 1884 married a school-teacher of Boston, Mass., named Parker, where they now live. 
Another sister (Princely) married another Cogan, brother to this Cogan, and they went 
to Wisconsin (now Montello, Wis.) in 1856, where they now live. A daughter of this 
issue is now Postmistress of Montello, Wis. A son, John Cogan, is editor of a weekly 
newspaper at Rees Heights, Territory of Dakotah. and was a member of the Dakotah 
Legislature, in 1886. The Browns and Folkas of Norwich, Conn., are cousins of the 
Princelys, and went from Ireland to i^orwich, Conn., in 1848 or 1850. 


was superintendent of construction of the Custom House and Post Office 
at Little Rock, Arkansas (a United States Government appointment), from 
1875 to 1880 ; and, afterwards, under the same appointment, at Fort Worth, 
and Galveston, Texas, and Charleston in South Carolina. He also has a 
record as an ''Irish Nationalist." He was a Whig; and, after the 
organization of the Republican party, a Republican. 

Mary McQuirk married John DenifF, at Norwich, Ct., in 1858 ; they 
have (in 1888) two children, — daughters, unmarried. Deniff was a 
gardener, and is now a merchant at Norwich. 

Elizabeth McQuirk married William Burke, at Norwich, in 1857, wha 
is now (in 1888) a merchant at Norwich. They have living : 1. John 
Burke, born in 1860, a mechanic, unmarried; 2. Edward Burke, born in

According to Burke's Landed Gentry, the Meade family would claim to be 
of ancient Irish extraction. At No, 116, p. 656, Vol. I. of this Edition, 
we give the Irish origin of the sirname, and the lineage of the family. 

1. Robert Meade, b. in Ireland ; 
m. in Barbadoes ; died in Phila- 
delphia, 1754. This family name 
is variously spelled Mead and Meade. 
Hotton's* recent work, on the early 
emigrants to America, contains 
names of Meads, who, between a.d. 
1600 and 1700, were transported 
as "rebels "to Barbadoes. Some 
writers are of opinion that those 
Meads were transported from Ire- 
land, consequent on the unhappy 
Cromwellian settlement of that 
country ; others think that those 
Meads or Meades were all English, 

and concerned in Monmouth's 
Rebellion. But the time of their 
going to America was apparently 
about the period of the emigration of 
the Moylans, Eitzsimmons, Lynches, 
and other well-known Irish Catholic 
families, who made large acquisi- 
tions of land in Western Pennsyl- 
vania, and were ardent patriots 
during the American Revolutionary 
War. This Robert Meade left two 
sons and one daughter:

of the town ot St. Michael's, Barbadoes, West Indies.

Friendly Sons of St. Patrick," was a Catholic, a highly respectable and wealthy ship- 
owner and merchant in Philadelj^hia, and many years partner in trade with Thomas

one of His Britannic Majesty's 
Council of the Island of Barbadoes,

3. Richard Worsam Meade: 

anecdote : "About the year 1790, he became embarrassed in his business and failed, 
owing to the insolvency of a house in France. His largest creditor was John Barclay, 
an extensive and liberal merchant in London. Immediately upon his failure, Mr. 
Meade wiote to Mr. Barclay, informing him of the condition of his affairs, but 
expressing a hope that he might yet be able to retrieve his losses. Mr. Barclay, in 
reply, requested Mr. Meade not to trouble his mind on account of the debt he already 
owed, and directed him to draw at sight, for £10,000 sterling more. With this generous 
assistance Mr. Meade was enabled to retrieve his fortune, and had the satisfaction, 
not only to repay Mr. Barclay, but to discharge all his former obligations in full. He 
was somewhat eccentric in his manners, but social, hospitable, and benevolent. He 
was one of the founders of the Hibernian Society, and subscribed £5,000 to supply 
the army with provisions in 1780." 

* Fitzsimmons : Of this Thomas (who d. 26th Aug., 1811) there is an interesting 
memoir published in the Pennsylvania Magazine of History and Biography, No. 3, 
Vol. II., which states that this Mr. Fitzsimmons was born in Philadelphia, his father 
having been the emigrant (from Ireland). He was a Member of the Revolutionary 
Congress, and a Signer of the Constitution of the United States of America. 

t Thomas Hustler : In the Landed Gentry, this Thomas is, by some mistake, 
entered as " William;" and his wife Charlotte as the daa. of William (instead of 
George) Meade.

Redmond Morris, who was a Captain in Luttrell's Horse, in the Irishl 
Army of King James II., belonged to a branch of the Montmorency-Morriai 
family, which descended from John, second son of the Lord of Lateragh,i 
who died A.D. 1562, seized in fee of Lateragh and other estates. John's' 
grandson, another John, who was created a Baronet, 25th March, 1631ji 
married Catherine, dau. of Sir Edmond Walsh, of Owney Abbej'-, county 
Limerick, and had six sons. Redmond, his eldest son and successor in the 
title, married Ellice Wall, of Coolnamucky, county Waterford, and had 
three sons : 1 . Sir John ; 2. Hervey ; and 3. Edmond (or Edward). Sir 
John, third Baronet (born 1620, died 1720, aged 100 years), married the- 
Hon. Ellinor Butler, and had four sons : 1. Redmond ; 2. Edward ; 3. 
Nich. ; and 4. James. 

This Redmond was the above mentioned Captain in Luttrell's Horse ; 
in which regiment he served till the surrender at Limerick, when he went 


'over to the English, having reached the grade of Lieut. -Colonel. The 
I regiment being shortly after broken up, he was reduced to seek employ- 
;'inent in France, in whose service he became a colonel. While in France 
he married the daughter of a merchant, named Tracy, which so irritated his 
father. Sir John, that he cut him off from the entail ; whereupon Redmond 
returned to London, and, in 1703, conformed to the Protestant religion, 
and obtained a special Act of Parliament disqualifying his father from 
changing the natural line of succession. He, however, died before his 
'father, in 1704, and was buried in St. Mary's Church, London. His heart 
was sent to Ireland and deposited in the Morris Chapel at Droom, near 
'Knockagh. Eedmond had two sons and four daughters; his sons were: 
l. John, and 2. Simon, who both enjoyed the baronetcy. 

John became fourth Bart., on the death of his grandfather, in 1720 ; he 
iinarried Margaret O'Shee, of Cloran, county Kilkenny, by whom he had 
two sons — Redmond, and Edmond, and three daughters ; he died A.D. 
,1728. His second son, Edmond, died unmarried ; his eldest son, Redmond, 
rwho became the fifth Bart., was of delicate habit and intellect, became a 
[Protestant, and through personal pique alienated his estates from his next 
imale heir, and died unmarried, A.D. 1740. His uncle Simon, second son 
of Captain Redmond, succeeded to his title. 

Captain Harvey (or Hervey) Morris, of Castlemorris, was next brother 
to Sir John, the third Baronet, of the Lateragh branch, and was conse- 
quently uncle to Captain Redmond of Luttrell's regiment. He married 
and had five sons — Richard, Redmond, James, Harvey, and Francis. This 
Francis, the youngest son, married Catherine, dau. and heiress of Sir 
William Evans, of Killkreen, county Kilkenny, and had three sons — 
Harvey, the eldest of whom was created Viscount Montmorris, on 23rd 
April, 1756. He was married twice : first, to Letitia, daughter of Earl of 
Bessborough, by whom he had one son, Harvey Redmond ; and, secondly,. 
to Mary, daughter of Wm. Wall, of Coolnamucky, in county Waterford, 
by whom he had Francis Harvey. This first Viscount died, A.D. 1766, and 
wa,& succeeded by Harvey Redmond as second Viscount, who died unmarried 
in 1797, and was succeeded by his half-brother Francis Harvey, third 
Viscount, who married Anne, daughter of Joseph Reade, of Castle Hoyle, 
county Kilkenny, and had one son, Harvey, born 1796.

I Some say that this family is descended from the ancient Dukes of Lorraine, 

I and that Sir Gilbert De Nogent, with his brother Eichard De Capello and 

: two other gentlemen of their name, came into Ireland with Sir Hugh De 

, Lacy, who gave the said Gilbert one of his daughters in marriage, and, as 

a marriage portion with her, the barony of " Delvin" — as in the following 

; Deed : " De omnes terras et tenementa quce quondam O'Finelan, hahuit, filio^ et 

i consanguineo meo GUberto De Nogent" The said Sir Gilbert having died 

; without issue, left the estates to his brother Eichard De Capello, Lord 

Justice of Ireland, whose daughter and only heir being married to Baron 

Jones, he became, in her right, Baron of Delvin ; which title continued in 

the family for four generations, until by the failure of heirs male, and the 

marriage of Catherine, daughter and sole heir of the last Baron Jones, to 

William Nogent, of Braclon, descended from the said Gilbert, or from one 

of his kinsmen, who came with him to Ireland, the estate and honour 

returned to the Nogent family. This William Nogent was the first who 

assumed the name Nugent. 

According to O'Dugan, this William was the ancestor of Nugent, and 
fifth in descent from Connor O'Connor, King of Meath, who was a brother 
of Cathal (or Charles) Craobhdearg, the fifty-first Christian King of 
Connaught, and (see p. 634, Vol. L) No. 112 on the O'Connor (Kings of 
Connaught) pedigree. This Connor O'Connor was also a younger brother 
of Eoderick O'Connor, the 183rd Monarch of Ireland, who died a.d. 1198.

The O'Callanans of Desmond are of the race of Eoghan Mor, and are t 
be distinguished from the O'Callanans of Connacht, who are of a totally 
different race, descended from a chieftain of the Siol-Murray. Th( 
Momonian or Munster O'Callanans were hereditary physicians to thi 
MacCarthy Reaghs, Princes of Carbery ; from whom they obtained exten- 
sive lands in consideration of their services. Their ruined castles sti' 
stand in mournful silence, to the east of Clonakilty ; and their lands hel 
by people, aliens alike in language and in race, to the tribesmen of Soutl 
Cork. Of this sept Albert Henry Callanan, Esq., M.D., of Cork, was tb 
chief representative. We learn that, in 1887, the principal members of thi 
ancient family were : 

Mr. Daniel O'Callanan, Ballinoroher, Clonakilty. 

Mr. James O'Callanan, Ballymacowen, 

Mr. James O'Callanan, Dunowen, 

Mr. John O'Callanan, Gurranecore, 

Mr. Thomas O'Callanan, Brownstown, 

Mr. Timothy O'Callanan, Lackanalocha, 

Jeremiah J. O'Callanan, the Munster poet, was a member of this family 


his name is still revered by the people of Desmond. He was born in 
Cork, in the year 1795 : and, from his birth, he was, through the piety of 
his parents, intended for the priesthood. During his youth he displayed 

" A boyhood wayward, warm and wild." 

At school he was a clever boy, gifted with a wondrous memory, but not 
otherwise distinguished. His preparatory classical studies were completed 
between the schools of Mr. O'Sullivan, of Cork, and Dr. Harrington, at 
Cove (now " Queenstown") ; and he entered Maynooth College for the 
rhetoric class at the age of seventeen. 

Finding he had no vocation for the priesthood, he left Maynooth in the 
summer of 1818, determined not to return. To please his parents he 
returned to the college, but, on consulting two eminent clergymen, he 
finally gave up the idea of becoming a priest. 

Some time after, he entered Trinity College as a medical student, 
remained in it two years, paid the fees for the lectures, but it is generally 
believed he never attended one. He returned to Cork aimless and 
unfixed. We find him next contributing articles to Blackwood ; he pro- 
jected a volume of poems ; struck out the outline of stories — some in prose, 
others in verse — on the traditions, history and scenery of Ireland ; he 
lived chiefly with his sister^ but often went on a series of visits amongst 
his friends ; and frequently he was to be seen amidst the glens and moun- 
tains of "West Cork, 

Like ourself and others whose pedigrees are given in Vol. I. of this 
Edition, necessity compelled Mr. O'Callanan to enter the teaching pro- 
fession ; from which he I'epeatedly attempted to escape, but without 
eff"ect j he was doomed to end his life as a tutor. As such, he had for 
some time an engagement with Dr. Maginn, the father of the celebrated 
Maginn ; and subsequently with Mr. Lynch, at the Everton school. He 
died at Lisbon, in September, 1829; and about that time some of his 
poems were published in Cork. In his early death, literature lost one of 
its ablest contributors. When at home he loved to wander amongst the 
people, gleaning the wild legends of the past, and the relics of song still 
preserved amongst them. Had he lived, he would, like Scott, have 
embodied and illustrated these ; created for his country a minstrelsy, and 
proved himself the bard of Irish chivalry, and a lyrist of the highest 

In Lisbon, on Christmas Eve, in 1827, he wrote : " This night twelve- 
month I was in Clonakilty with dear friends ; this night I am alone in a 
land of strangers ; but if, as I purpose, please God, I seek to ba alone with 
Ood, I shall be happy anywhere : 

" Beneath the sun of Portugal, where golden Tais shines, 
I sat upon the hill that crowns the Valley of the Vines ; 
A breeze came coolly from the north, like an angel's passing wing, 
And gently touching it awaked sad memory's sleeping string ; 
I thought upon mj' friends and home, and on my father dear. 
And from my heart there came a sigh, and to mine eye a tear, 
. . . . and I thought how happy I should be 
"Were I upon the Virgin's Bank* that looks across the sea." 

* Virgin's Bank : A high bank, breasting the Atlantic, to the south of Clonakilty 
;«f which a ciu-ious tradition is related by the peasantry of that neighbourhood. ' 


Mr. O'Callanan's poems, were, in 186 1, published in Cork by Mr. Daniel 
Mulcahy, Patrick-street. The volume being now out of print, we give a 
few of his effusions, merely as samples of what we have lost : 



Ye sons of old Ibex'ia, brave Spaniards, up, arise, 

Along your hills, like distant rills, the voice of battle flies ; 

Once more, with threats of tyranny, come f n the hosts of France ; 

Ye men of Spain, awake again, to Freedom's light advance. 

Like snow upon your mountains, they gather from afar, 

To launch upon your olive fields the avalanche of war ; 

Above the dark'ning Pyrenees their cloud of battle flies, 

To burst in thunder on your plains ; brave Spaniards, up, arise. 


O sons of Viriatus, Hispania's boast and pride, 

AYho long withstood, in fields of blood, the Roman's battle-tide ; 

Arise again to match his deeds, a
