b. 17 Dec. 184i ; m. 1 Sept. 1877, Elizabeth Jane,
only dau. of Major Eichard Doyne, of Hermitage,
CO. Dublin.

Lineage.— The Milesian family of O'Grady is one of
the most ancient of co. Limerick. Dr. O'Brien, Eoman
Catholic Bishop of Cloyne, in his Irish and English Dictionartj,
p. 514 {see also Keating, vol. ii. p. 401, ed. 1809), assigns
Conal Eachluath, King of Munster a.d. 366, and 6th in
descent from Oilliol Olum (of the race of Heber, the eldest son
of MiLEsius, King of Spain, who colonized Ireland), as the
common ancestor of the O'Gradys and the O'Briens ; but the
latter having subsequently, in the person of Brien Boroimhe,
the renowned monarch of Ireland, established an ascendant
power in North Munster, or Thomond, of which they became
hereditary rulers, the O'Gradys acknowledged their para-
mount sway, and were arrayed as dynasts, or chiefs of a sept,
under the banners of these provincial princes. The O'Gradys
diverging, in process of time, from the parent stock of KU-
ballyowen, spread into the various collateral branches of
Cappercullen, Elton Grange, Lodge, Eahan, Cahir, Mount
Prospect, £zc.

In the interval between 1276 and 1310, the chieftainship of
the sept vested in

Donald O'Gradt, who fell in battle 1309, leaving a son,

Hugh O'Geadt, who acquired the same year, in marriage
with the dau. and heir of O'Kerwick, Chief of Anlan Cliah,
the lands of Kilballyowen, which have since remained the
principal residence of his descendants. His son and heir.

William O'Geadt, of Kilballyowen, -m. Elizabeth Fitz-
gerald, dau. of the Knight of Glyn, and was father of

Daniel O'Gradt, of Kilballyowen, whose son (by his wife,
dau. of O'Hine, Lord of Cahinelly Castle),

Gilltdubh O'Geadt, of Kilballyowen, )/i. Eleanor, dau. of
WiUiam Verdon, of Kilmallock, co. Limerick, and had a son
and successor,

Matthew O'Ge.adt, of Kilballyowen, in. Alicia, dau. of
Thomas FitzGibbon, the White Knight, and left a son,

Donogh O'Geadt, of Kilballyowen, whose wife was Mar-
