From Irish Pedigrees; or the Origin and Stem of the Irish Nation by John O'Hart
ON the confiscation of Tirconnell, and the settlement of British colonies called the "Plantation of Ulster," in the reign of King James the First, the following families are, in Pynnar's Survey, A.D. 1619, given as the possessors of Donegal:—John Murray got all Boylagh and Banagh. The following had various districts:—Captain Thomas Dutton, Alexander Cunningham (or Conyngham), John Cunningham, James Cunningham, Cuthbert Cunningham, Sir James Cunningham, James MacCullagh; William Stewart, the Laird of Dunduff; Alexander MacAwley, alias Stewart; the Laird of Lusse, Sir John Stewart, Peter Benson, William Wilson, Thomas Davis, Captain Mansfield, Sir John Kingsmill, Sir Ralph Bingley, Sir Thomas Coach, Sir George Marburie, Sir William Stewart, Sir Basil Brooke, Sir Thomas Chichester, Sir John Vaughan, John Wray, Arthur Terrie, Captain Henry Hart, Captain Paul Gore Nathaniel Rowley, William Lynn, and Captain Sandford.
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.
This is a story for the genuine booklover, penned by an Irish bookseller under the pseudonym of Ralph St. John Featherstonehaugh.
