MacMahon, John B., Marquis d'Eguilly, was born at Limerick in 1715. He entered the French service at an early age, and in 1750 having proved royal descent from Brian Borumha, was admitted to the estates of Burgundy, and created Marquis d'Eguilly. His younger brother Maurice, Lord of Moguien in Burgundy, was in 1746 made Captain in the Pretender's Scotch army. Marshal MacMahon, President of the French Republic, is grandson of the first above-named. An interesting note on the MacMahon family, based on the Annals of the Four Masters, will be found in Notes and Queries, 4th Series.
