duagh. The Rev. John O'Molony was Roman Catholic Bishop
of Killaloe from 1630 to 1651, and as a Spiritual Peer sat at
(and signed the Manifesto of) the Supreme Council of Kilkenny
in 1646. In May, 1671, the Rev. John O'Molony was appointed
Roman Catholic Bishop of Killaloe, and in 1688, was translated
to the Bishopric of Limerick, and in 1696 was attainted by
King William III. under the style of the "Titular Bishop of
Killaloe." He was one of tbe principal benefactors of the
Irish College at Paris, and endowed Bourses in that College
and in the college of Louis le Grand. By the Deed of Founda-
tion, dated 8 Aug. 1701, the six Bursaries in the latter, founded
by him, were to be held by Irish, with a preference to his
relatives of the name of Molony. The Bishop, while resident

Lineage. — The Genealogy of the House of Moncrieff has
been recently compiled by George Seton, Esq., M.A., author
of Scottish Heraldry. The principal published accounts are
contained in Douglas's Baronage of Scolland and Playfair's
British Family Antiquity. While the pedigree given by
Douglas is incomplete, that of Playfair is, in some parts,
highly questionable, and the character of the compilation may
be inferred from the following statement: — " This article, and
a few others, are given on the authority of a manuscript account
of the family of Moncrieff, written upwards of a hundred
years ago, in the possession of Sir Henry Moncrieff-Welhvood.
It was written by one whose certain knowledge reached back
to about the middle of the seventeenth centuiy. In all
particulars it agrees with the documents on record, and supplies
chasms with regard to facts of less importance." According to
Douglas, the surname of Moncrieff, which is local and of great
antiquity in Perthshire, was assumed by the possessors of the
lands and barony of Moncrieff, in that county, as soon ;is
surnames began to be used in Scotland. He deduces the
descent from Matthaus de Moncrieff (c. 1240), while Playfair
carries the ancestry four generations higher to Ramerus de
Moncrieff, temp. Alexander 1. (1107-24). Seventh in descent
from Matthew was Sir John Moncrieff of that ilk (ob. c. 1530),
who m. Beatrix, dau. of Forman, of Luthrie, and had at least
two sons, viz. :


John, said to be ancestor of the present possessor of the
lands of Mon'jrielle, whose grandson, Thomas, was created
a Baronet in 16s5, and from whose younger brother, Harry,
the present Sir Robert Moncrieffe, of Moncrieffe, 8th Bart.,
is seventh in lineal descent.
The eldest son,

William Moncrieff, had by his wife, Margaret Murray, of
the family of Balvaird (now represented by the Earl of Mans-
lield), four sons,
