Lmeagre. — From the similarity of arms and name, it is
supposed that the family of Stannus is identical with that of
Stonhocse of Radley. The first mention of the family in
Ireland is found in a patent of naturalization (consequent
upon the plantation of Ulster by James I.), dated 1618, and
granted to William Stan-ehoose, of Carbolzie, in Scotland,
whereby all the rights and privileges of an English subject
were fully secured to him and other persons of consideration.
The son of this William was

James Stanncs, of Carlingford, the principal part of which
town and manor he was seised of, including several townlands.





His interment in the church of Knock, co. Down, previous to
16So, is recorded in a very interesting family document. His
s >n,

William Staxxus, also styled "of Carlineford," was Hish
Sheriff of Louth 1701. It is to be remarlu'd that, on the
Sheriff's roll, the name is spelt " Stanehouse." He Hi. Mabella,
