Iiineage. — There is every reason to believe that this
family, one of Welsh extraction, is descended from the old
and ennobled House of Vaughan, of Golden Grove, in Carmar-
thenshire, on which was conferred the earldom of Carbery
{see Burke's Extinct and Dormant Peerage). For nearly
three centuries it has been settled in the province of Ulster,
first at Ardee, co. Louth, and afterwards at Dromore, co.
Down, and, in corroboration of the Golden Grove ancestry,
it may be observed that one of the daughters of Walter
Vaughan, of Golden Grove, Carmarthenshire, m. Sir Edward
Moore, Knt., eldest son of Gerald, 1st Viscount Drogheda,
and tliat in her widowhood she and her daughter Letitia, b.
1615, were possessed of property in the county of Louth, and
resided at Ardee, as appears by their petition to Parliament
regarding the losses they sustained in the Eebellion of 1641.
It may also be noticed that the Kev. George Vaughan,
Treasurer of Dromore (ancestor of the Vaoghans o/' Ga(V()/'>,
was the devoted friend of Jeremy Taylor, Bishop of Dromure,



who was in early life chaplain to Richard Vaughan, ot
Golden Grove, Earl of Carbery. The first on record in Ireland
