"WYSE OF THE MANOE OP ST. JOHN'S.

Wtse, Lttcien William Bonapaete, Esq. of the
Manor of St. John's, co. Watei'ford, Capt. Waterford
Artillery, i. 27 June, 1868.

Lineage.— The ancestor of this ancient House was a
younger son of the family of Wyse, originally of Greston,
Cornwall (1167), and subsequently of Sydenham, Devon (1320).
He accompanied Richard, Earl of Pembroke, into Ireland,
1171, with therank and title of knight, and immediately after
the Earl's landing and taking possession of co. Waterford (one
of the first conquests of the English), was rewarded with large
possessions (part of which near Dungarvan, retains the name
of "Wyse's Point," as marked in the oldest sea charts), in
capite, at two knight's fee^ and the usual condition of military
service. King John,' when he visited Waterford as Earl of
Moreton, granted 1195, a charter to the priory, now Manor
of St. Johns, afterwards confirmed by Edwakd I., 1281, by
which it was exempted from all tolls and other charges, with
power to hold a court for the trial of minor offences within its
jurisdiction, whilst the right to all tithes, great and small, was
granted by Walter, Bishop of Waterford, and confirmed by his
successors. From 1452 to 1690, when the city surrendered to
King William, there were (besides several members of
Parliament) thirty-six Mayors and High Sheriffs of this family.
The Mayor, Thomas Wtse, on signing the capitulation of the
city, as Governor to William, 1690, paid out of his private
purse £1,530, the sum required by the King to save the
citizens from an inimediate levy, which sum was never repaid
to him. The Wyses were amongst the heaviest sulTerers by
confiscation. In 1647 the entire of their property was seized
and possessed by the usurping powers, and it was not until
1663 after the restoration of Charles II., that they were
restored to its enjoyment by a decree of the Court of Chancery,
with large deductions, however, such as Chapelizod, co.
Dublin, one hundred houses within the city of Waterford,
retained by CilokWlStL's soldiers, or those who purchased from
them. ■ . ■ '

The chief line of the English' Wyses were those seated at
Sydenham, Devon, for details of whom refer to AVise of
Clayton Hall. A junior branch, as already mentioned, was
established in the sister kingdom so far back as the 12th cen-
tury, by

Sir Andrew Wtse, Knl., who, passed over to Ireland with
the first band of warriors that, under the command of Strong-
bow, sought a settlement in that country. He had issue,
William and Robert. The former,

William Wtse, s. his father, and was progenitor of the
Wyses, of whom we are about to treat. His descendants, as
well as those 9! his brother Robert, goon extended their name
and possessions inco. Water|qrd.

Andrew Wtse, the son of William, was father of

Philip WysE, mentioned in the deed of feoffment of 1323.
He had two sons, Wjlliam and John. The elder,

William Wtse, had by the aforesaid feoffment, temp.
Edward II., a confirmation o| certain lands in co. Waterford.
His son and successor,' '

William Wtse, m. a dau. of the Aylward family, and was
father of

Philip W^tse, whose son,

John Wtse, to. a dau. of the Madans (one among the first
alliances of the English gentry with the native Irish), and
left a son and successor,

William Wtse, who was father of four sons, George, Walter,
Richard, and Galfrid. The 3rd son.

Sir RICHARD' Wtse, was father of Andrew and James. The
latter,

James Wtse, married into the distinguished family of the
Waddings (from whom was the celebrated Franciscan monk,
Luke Wadding, an eminent writer of the 17th century), and
was father of , .t;o ( u-j' ■■u-



John Wtse, whose son, ^

Maurice Wtse, was Mayor of Waterford 1452, and was
living 1495. In four years afterwards, John Wtse and James
Sherlock were appointed Justices to hold assizes in the adjacent
districts (Patent Roll, 14 Henet IV., in Chancery, Ireland)
This

John Wtse, of the manor of St. John, the son of Maurice,
inherited, by descent, those lands of Island-i-Kane, Ballyder-
mody, &c., which had been the subject of the family settlet
ment of 1325, amongst the Wyses. In 1533,

Sir William Wtse, son of John, by his wife, a dan. of
Henry Sherlock, Esq. being then Mayor of Waterford, wrote to
Cromwell, the King's Secretary, an official letter on the state
of Ireland, which is preserved in the British Museum, in which
he alleges certain correspondence between the Emperor
Charles V. and the Earl of Desmond, the object of which he
infers was an " invasion of the cities and towns by the sea-
coast of this land." It is to be here observed, that during his.
mayoralty occurred the memorable Geraldine rebellion, when ;
Waterford, under his government and control, adhered so
firmly to Henrt VIII., that the loyalty of its citizens was
acknowledged by three royal letters of thanks, and Wyse him-
self, having gone to England, 1536, was made Esquire of the
King's body, and subsequently received the honour of knight-
hood as "an honourable gift for their renowned fidelity," and
returned to Waterford with a cap of maintenence and gilt
sword, presented by the king to the Corporation, to be borne
thenceforth before the Mayor on all state occasions, which
practice is still continued. Sir William d. about 155C, leaving
issue, when various inquisitions post ^mortem were taken to
ascertain his estates and possessions in the co. and city of
Dublin, COS. Cork and Tipperary, and above all, in the co. and
city of Waterford.

Henrt Wtse, of the Manor of St. John, the eldest son of
Sir William, m. Joan Clarke, of Bristol, and d. circa 1564. It
is also recorded that this Henry Wyse had an exemption to-
him and his heirs from all tolls and grist at Watkin's mill, on
the remarkable condition of defending the granter's title and
enjoyment of the watercourse "from St. Catherine's to Ship's
or Sheep's Bridge, according to the charter of King John to
the House of St. John." This Henry d. s.p., leaving

James Wtse, the son of his next brother John, by Maryannc
Walshe, of co. Dublin, his heir to whom, in such character,
Queen Elizabeth granted by patent, in the 2nd year of her
reign, 1563, all and singular the manors, lordships, castles,
&c., of which his said uncle died seised. This James m.
Alisonne, of the family of Chief Baron Finglass, author of the
Breviate of Ireland, dau. and heir of Finglass, of co. Dublin.
d. 1596, leaving issue, i. John; ii. Andrew; iii. Henry; iv.
Thomas, Mayor of Waterford; v. Nicholas, Sheriff of Water-
ford 1605. The 2nd son, Andrew, appears to have been
Knight of Malta, Prior of England, Privy Councillor to King
Philip of Spain, in the kingdom of Naples, &c. Henry, the
3rd son,wasof Monkstown, co. Cork, followed Lord Baltimore
to America, and was the founder of a family in Virginia, repre-
sented by the celebrated Confederate Orator and Statesman,
Lieut.-Gen. Henry Wise. The eldest son,

John Wise, Esq. of the Manor of St. John, aged 24 at his
father's death, 1596, i/t. Mary, dau. of Bartholomew Lincolne.
He d. 1625, and left three sons. The eldest,

Robert Wtse, Esq., Sheriff of Waterford 1630; »ii. Mary
Wadding, but d. s. p. 1632. He made a settlement of the
family estates in 1631. His brother,

Francis Wtse, Esq. of the Manor of St. John, m. Genette,
dau. of Robert Walsh, Mayor of Waterford, 1602, washisheii
at-law. By his will, 1647, he left very large bequests to the
charitable institutions of Waterford, and five shillings to each
of its citizens. His heir-male,

Thomas Wtse, eldest son of Andrew, Sheriff of Waterford
1632, 3rd son of John Wyse, by Mary Lincolne his wife, ?n.
the only child and heiress of Thomas Symnell, Esq. of
