NOTES

[1] Malone: Along with Anthony Malone, a distinguished politican, who was born in Ireland on the 5th December, 1700, we may mention his nephew Edmond Malone, Shaksperian commentator and author, who was born in Dublin on the 4th October, 1741. Lord Sunderlin, who was Edmond's brother, buried him near the family mansion at Baronstown in Westmeath. Rev. William Malone, best known for his challenge to Protestant writers and Archbishop Ussher's reply, was born in Dublin about 1586. At an early age he was sent to Portugal, and then to Rome, where in his twentieth year he entered the Order of Jesuits. After a sojourn in Ireland, he was sent for to Rome and appointed Rector of St. Isidore's College. He returned to Ireland as Superior of the Jesuit Mission. He excited the suspicion of the Government and was arrested; but contrived to make his escape to Spain, where he died Rector of the Irish College at Seville, in 1659.
