Liineag-e— This family claims descent from the Mans-
fields of Nottingham. The first, it is asserted, who settled in
Ireland was

Sir EoDOLPHns Mansfield, temp. Henry II. He received
grants of land in cos. Armagh, Derry, Cork, 'Waterford, and
Limerick; a sni.all portion of that granted in Waterford alone
remains, the rest having been confiscated at various periods.
The family resided at Killongford and Ballinamultina, co.
AVaterford, until the beginning of the present century. We
find in the 16th century, by various inquisitions, that the
Mansfields of Killongford (elder branch) and Ballinamultina,
CO. Waterford, descendants of the first settler, held of the
Crown in capite, by military service, extensive landed posses-
sions in that county. From an inquisition P.M. taken at
Dungarvan 1579, it appears that

William Mansfield, d. l.'ieT, seised of Killongford and
^several other lands in co. Waterford, held of the Crown in
capite, and that he left by his wife, EUisin Ny Donnell
McGrath, who survived him, a son,

Edmund Mansfield, b. looO, who m. Catherine, dau. of John
FitzGerald, Lord of the Decies, by his wife, Hellen, dau. of
Maurice Fitz-Gibbon, the White Knight, and by her had issue,
•two daus., Margaret and Catherine. The latter m. — Dal-
ton. The lands of Ballyharrohane, co. Waterford, were con-
.Teyed to her by her father in 1603. The elder, Margaret, vi.

Walter Mansfield, Fitz-Edmund Fitz-Walter, of Ballina-
multina, CO. Waterford (Inq. at Tallow, co. Waterford, 1622,
reciting grant of Ballinamultina to Walter Mansfield). They
liad issue,

Edmund Mansfield, on whom his father, by deed dated 23
July, 1591, settled Ballinamultina. He m. Oct. 1621, KUenor, of Richard Nugent, of Cloncoskraine, co. Waterford, and
dying in 1623, left an only son,

Walter SLansfield, of Ballinamultina, named in the deed
of 1591, who 7;i. 1640, Helena, dau. of Nicholas Power, of Kil-
ballykiltie, co. Waterford. This Walter, who was one of the
"Forty-nine" oEBcers, suffered much during the Common-
wealth, his property having been confiscated, and he was him-
self transplanted to Connaug'it. His son,

EicHARD Mansfield, s. him, and recovered a portion of the
family estate at the Restoration ; to. 1681, Dorothea, dau. of
Matthew Hore, of Shandon, co. Waterford, and left, with
other issue, an eldest son,
