NOLAN OF BALIilNDERRY.

NoiiA'N', John Philip, Esq. of Ballinderry, co.
Galway, J.P., M.P. for North Gralway, late Lieut. -
Col. R.A., b. 3 Aug. 1838.

Liineag'e Our ancient writers, the national records,

private muniments, monumental and traditional history, all
hear testimony to the origin and pedigree of the O'Nolans.
Keating, the historian, in tracing the royal genealogies of
Ireland, comes to ConnCeadh Cathach, " Conn of the hundred
battles," whom he states to have had two brothers. From
Eochaidh Fionn,one of them, descended O'Nuallain, otherwise
O'Nolan, and O'Ferrall, "Linea Antigua" (Ulster's Office)
gives the detailed descent of John O'Nolan from this Eochaidh
Fionn, brother of Conn, Monarch of Ireland.

The chief of the sept, of O'Nolan, which gave name to the
district of Fothart O'Nolan, submitted and did homage to King
Henry 11., who confirmed to him his possessions and rights.
Camden, in his Britannia, refers to the O'Nolans, as does
Cox, in his Hibernia. The Leinster line of the family, the
O'Nolans of Ballykealy, co. Carlow, continued to preserve
their estate imtil about the middle of the last century, a very
remarkable example of ancient and continuous territorial pos-
session. Hardiman, in his Histori/ of Galwatj, records that
during the reigns of Henrt VI. and Edward IV. several
ancient families settled in the town of Galway, and he espe-
cially mentions the O'Nolans. Their ancient family seat in
Connaught was the Castle of Ballinrobe, of which Thomas
Nolan, Esq. d. seised 18 June, 1628, leaving Agnes Martin,
his widow, and Gregory, his son and heir. A great portion of
their property of Ballinrobe was confiscated in the civil war of
1641, but a part still remains with their representatives and
heirs, the Ballinderry family. There were two lines of the
O'Nolans : one, that seated at Ballinderry, we now describe ;
the other was of Loughboy, co. Mayo. Several marriages
took place between the O'Nolans and the Burkes of Clanricarde
and Mayo. The immediate ancestor of the present representa-
tive of the Nolans of Ballinderry,

Patrick Nolan, Esq. of Ballinderry (son of John Nolan,
Esq. of the same place), had several confirmatory grants of
land in the cos. of Mayo and Galway temp. Charles II.
(Ricords of the Rolls, vol. xii., Ulster's Office). He vi. 1067,
Anne, dau. (by Mary his wife, dau. of Sir Dominick Browne,
of Carra Browne, co. Galway) of Sir John Browne, Bart, of
The Neale, ancestor of the noble Houses of Kilmaine and Sligo
and had, with other issue,

John Nolan, Esq. of Ballinderry, m. Feb. 1709, Ellis, 2nd
d^u. of William Brabazon, Esq. of New Park, co. Mayo, Capt.



of a troop of horse in King James II. 's army, and one of the
Commissioners for the capitulation of Limerick, by Mary, his
1st wife, dau. of George Browne, Esq. of The Neale, and left a
son and heir,

Patrick Nolan, Esq. of Ballinderry, m. a dau. of Martyn,
of Tullyra Castle, co. Galway, and was s. by his son,
