From Irish Pedigrees; or the Origin and Stem of the Irish Nation by John O'Hart
In the twelfth and thirteenth centuries several new families settled in the town of Galway, and other parts of that county; the principal of whom were Athy, Bermingham, Blake, Bodkin, Browne, Blundel, Deane, Dillon, Darcy, French, De Jorse, Kirwan, Lynch, Lawless, Morris, Martin, White, etc. The De Jorses came from Wales to Galway in the reign of Edward the First, and having formed an alliance with the O'Flahertys, chiefs of West Connaught, got large possessions in Connemara in the barony of Ross; and towards the borders of Mayo a territory which is called "Joyces' Country." These De Jorses changed their name to "Joyce."
From a sad, comfortless childhood Giles Truelove developed into a reclusive and uncommunicative man whose sole passion was books. For so long they were the only meaning to his existence. But when fate eventually intervened to have the outside world intrude upon his life, he began to discover emotions that he never knew he had.
A story for the genuine booklover, penned by an Irish bookseller under the pseudonym of Ralph St. John Featherstonehaugh.
