NOTES

[1] Charles (or Cathal) Oge: According to Wood-Martin's History of Sligo, this Charles had a son Donal, whose son was Sir Charles O'Connor Sligo; and that Teige, living in 1536, was the first who assumed the title of "O'Connor Sligo,"—the previous title of the family having been:

"MacDonail MacMuircheartaigh."

which was derived from a lord of Sligo, bearing that name, and who died A.D. 1395.

O'Donovan says that the last chief of this family died at Brussels, on 7th February, 1756, a Lieut.-General in the Austrian Army; which would go to show that Teige, No. 124, was a younger son of Charles Oge, No. 123.
