MAHONY OF DKOMORE CASTLE.
Mahont, Harald Segerson, Esq. of Dromore
Castle, CO. Kerry, B.A. Trin. Coll. Dublin, b. 13 Feb.
1867 ; s. his father 1892.

Lineag-e.— The O'Mahonys were in early times powerful
chieftains in Muiwter, and had extensive estates along the sea-
coast of Cork and Kerry. From old family documents, it
appears that the ancestors of the present Richard John
Mahont, l:sq. of Dromore Castle, held for a long period the
cffiee of Seneschal of Kerry, evendown to the time of the Com-
monwealth. On the 25th March, 1639, MacDermot O'Mahony
was confirmed as High Sheriff of Kerry by letters patent from
Charles I. Not long after, the O'Mahonys, true to their
allegiance, suffered fine and confiscation, and finally sought in
i foreign climes the distinction denied them at home.
^ Col. Dermot O'Mahont, of Rosbrin, a faithful adherent of
King James 11., fought and fell at Aughrim. His brother,
' Daniel Makont, received the honour of knighthood from that
monarch at St. Germain's for his gallant conduct at Cremona,
and afterwards for his good services in France, Spain, and
(Italy, obtained the title of Count from Lodis XIV. This was
|the celebrated Gen. Count Mahont, of the Spanish service, so



distinguished at Almanza and in Sicily as CommaLder-in-Chief
of the Spanish troops. By Cecilia Weld his wife, he left two
sons; the younger, Demetrius (Count Mahony), Ambassador
to Vienna, d. s. p. 1776; the elder, James Joseph, (Count
O'Mahony), Lieut.-Gen. in the Neapolitan service, Knighlof
St. Januarius, m. Anne. dau. of Charlotte Maria, Countess of
Newburgh, and dying 1757, left an only dau. and heir, the
Countess Cecilia O'Mahont, who m. Prince Benedict GuiS-
TiNiANi, and had issue, Vincent, Prince Guistiniani, whose onl.r
dau. and heir, Cecilia, Princess Guistiniani, was mother of the
present Earl Newburgh; Lorenzo, d. unm.; and James,
Cardinal Bishop of Albans, d. 1843.

At the present time, the chief lines of the great House of
Mahony still resident in co. Kerry are Mahont of D
