Clare branch by Charles George O'Callaghan, Esq., D.L.,
of Ballynahinch, and John O'Callaghan, Esq. of Maryfoit
and Fortanne. The O'Callaghans of Cadogan are a branch of
O'Callaghan of Clonmeen and. Drumaneen, co. Cork.

Thomas Coppinger, aged 28 years at the time of his brother's

(10 March, 1671, P. R. Office, Ir.) of the famous Sir Robert
Coppinger, the last Roman Catholic Mayor of Cork prior to

allied branch of the Coppinger family. He was b. 1610; ra.
EUis, dau. of Henry Gould, Esq. of Cork, Alderman. She d.
1688. A curious story* is told (with variations) of an early
friendship formed between Mr. Coppinger and the Lord Pro-
tector in the low countries, where Coppinger had got him out
of somescrape— of their subsequent recognition of one another
in Ireland, and of the personal intervention of Cromwell for
the preservation of his estates : moreover, the undeniable fact
remains on r'^cord that he was dispossessed of his possessions
by "the usurping power," but obtained a decree of the
Cromwellian Court of Claims, dated 15 May, 1658, re-instating
him in a large portion of them ; which decree was recited and
reaffirmed (with additions) in a further decree made by the
Court of Claims that wa.s established on the Restoration,
dated 22 July, 15 Charles II., as an "innocent Papist." Mr.
Coppinger had four sons,

I. Thomas, his successor.

II. William, High Sheriff of Cork, tempore Jac. 11., outlawed
for High Treason. He was the last Roman Catholic Sheiilf
of Cork, prior to the Roman Catholic Kelief Act of 1829,

of Barrj-scourt, on 19 Aug. 1841, to the late Mr. Crofton
