Notes

[7] La Tranche: Frederick de la Tranche took refuge in England, and settled in Northumberland, whence his descendants removed to Ireland, and there founded the Trench family, the head of which is the Earl of Clancarty. Lord Ashtown is the head of another branch of the family. The late Protestant Archbishop of Dublin, the Right Hon. and Most Rev. Richard Chenevix Trench was doubly a Huguenot by his descent.—See Chenevix.
