End of the Servitors, and Native Grantees.

Notes

[22] McBarron; We now would read this name: “Arte O’Neile, son of the Baron,” (namely, Ferdorogh O’Neill, Baron of Dungannon, a son of Conn Bacchach O’Neill, Prince of Tyrone). And in No. 2 Grant we would read: “Henry O’Neale, son of Shane” (O’Neill). At the period of the Ulster Plantation, however, it was the custom to write the names of persons as in this and the following Returns.

[23] O’Neale: These three—Hugh, Art, and Henry O’Neale—were brothers; and sons of Sir Tirlagh McHenry O’Neill, of the Fewes.

[24] Catherine: This Catherine was first married to Terence (or Tirlagh) Oge O’Neill, son of Sir Henry Oge O’Neill, who, with his eldest son Tirlagh had fallen in the English service at the time of Sir Cahir O’Dogherty’s revolt. By that marriage said Catherine was the mother of Felimy Roe O’Neill, who, A.D. 1641, became the Irish leader.

[25] Tircannada: The Plantation precinct of Coole and Tircannada was commensurate with the two present baronies of Magherastephane and Tirkennedy.
