* O'Corra : Of this family was JoJin Curry, M.D., a distinguished Catholic
physician and writer, who was born in Ireland early in the 18th century. He was
descended from the O'Corra family, of Cavan, who lost their estates in the wars of
1641-1652, and 1689-1691. His grandfather, a cavalry officer in James's army, fell
at the battle of Aughrim. Disqualified by his religion from obtaining a degree in
Ireland (on account of the stringency of the Penal Laws against Catholics), Doctor
John Curry went to Paids, there studied medicine for several years, and took his
diploma at Eheims. Returning to practise in Ireland, he rose to eminence as a
physician ; and took ,up his pen in defence of his co-religionists. The incident that
impelled him to do so is thus related by his editor. Charles O'Connor : " In October,
1746, as he passed through the Castle-yard on the memorial day of the Irish rebellion
of 1641, he met two ladies, and a girl of about eight years of age, who, stepping on a
little before them, turned about suddenly, and, with uplifted hands and horror in her
countenance, exclaimed — Are there any of those hloody Papists in Dublin ? This incident,
which to a different hearer would be laughable, filled the Doctor with anxious
reflections. He immediately infeiTed that the child's terror proceeded from the
impression made on her mind by the sermon preached on that day in Christ Church,
whence those ladies had proceeded ; and having procured a copy of the sermon, he
found that his sm-naise was well founded." He combated such bitter prejudices in a
Dialogue, the publication of which created a great sensation, and it was replied to by
Walter Harris. Dr. Curry rejoined in his Eistorical Memoirs. In 1775, he published
anonymously An Hidorical and Critical Revieio of the Civil Wars in Ireland. With
Mr. Wyse, Mr. 0' Con or, and a few more. Dr. Curry was one of the founders of the
first Catholic Committee, which in March, 1760, met privately at the Elephant Tavern
in Essex-street, Dublin— the forerunner of the powerful Catholic Associations which
seventy years afterwards, under O'Connell, achieved Emancipation. He died in 1780.
Two of his sons were officers in the Austrian service. — For further information
on this subject, see Webb's valuable ViOx]s.—Compendiam of Irish Biography (Dublin :
Gill and Son, 1878).

t Luachan : A quo O'Luachain ("luach" : Irish, price), anglicised Price.
X Curadh : This w^ord is derived from the Irish obsolete substantive cur, "power,"
"manliness"; and from it some genealogists incorrectly derive Conry (see "Conroy").

* Portlester : This family was, according to MacFirbis, descended as here stated. In
Webb's Compendium of Irish Biograp)hy, it is stated that — *'Sir Eoland Eustace, or
Fitz Eustace, Lord Portlester, was descended from a branch of the Geraldines to whom
Henry II. had granted the country round Naas. In 1454 he was appointed Deputy to
Eichard, Duke of York; and again in 1462 he filled the same office for the Duke of
Clarence. Subsequently he was tried for plotting with the Earl of Desmond, and
acquitted. Created Portlester, he married Margaret, daughter of Janicho d'Artois, by
whom he had two daughters ; the elder married Gerald, 8th Earl of Kildare. He held
the office of 'Treasurer of Ireland for many years, and was in 1474 appointed to the
custody of the great seal, which six years afterwards he refused to surrender when the
King granted the post to another. This was for a time a great hindrance to public
business, until the King authorized the construction of a new great seal for Ireland by
Thomas Archbold, Master of the King's Mint in Ireland, and that in Eustace's hands
was 'damned, annulled, and suspended,' while his acts as Treasurer were _ also
repudiated . . . Eustace refused to give up the seal ; his son-in-law Kildare positively
declined to admit a new Lord Deputy, Lord Grey ; James Keating, Constable of Dublin
Castle, broke down the drawbridge, and defied the Deputy and his three hundred
archers and men-at-arms to gain admittance ; and the Mayor of Dublin proclaimed that
no subsidy should be paid the Earl ; while a parliament held at Naas repudiated Lord
Grey's authority ; and one summoned at Trim declared the proceedings of Kildare's
parliament at Naas null and void. Lord Portlester died 14th December, 1496, and was
buried at Cotlandstown, County of Kildare. Two monuments were erected to his
memory— one in the new abbey, KilcuUen, which he had founded in 1460 ; the other in
St. Audeon's Church, Dublin, where he had built a chapel to the Yirgin."

Arms : "We are unable at present to give the Arms of this family ; but the Crest* is
a mailed arm holding a halbert. Motto : Recte adhibito Deus adjuvat.

This is a Munster family of purely Irish origin ; descended from Fiangus,
who, according to the learned Professor O'Looney, was "Chief of a
district of country near Cashel of the Kings," in .the County Tipperary;
and a quo O'Fianngusa ("fiann": Irish, a soldier of the ancient Irish militia;
and " gus," strength), anglicised O'Fennessij, and Fennessy. Fiangus, as the
name implies, must have been a strongly-built man and a brave warrior.
Commencing with Richard Fennessy, who died A.D. 1747, the following is
the pedigree of this ancient family : —
1. Richard Fennessy t and Cathe



rine his wife held a large farm at
Ballynattin, near Clerihan, and a
few miles south of Cashel, in the
CO. Tipperary ; also farmed the
adjoining townland of Shanbally.
He died in 1747, leaving one son.

2. Richard (d. 1779): son of
Richard ; established a Nursery at
Ballynattin, the first of the kind in
Ireland ; m. and had eight sons and
four daughters : one of these daugh-
ters m. Bourke of Rouscoe, co.
Tipperary ; and another dau. m.
Nicholas White of Kilcarone. The
sons were :

I. John, a Nursery-man at Bally-
nattin, who m. Miss Murphy
of Ballinamona, near Cashel,
CO. Tipperary, and had no issue.

II. William, of whom presently.

III. David, who was an Army-
Surgeon, d. in Waterford, unm.

IV. Richard, who was by his
uncle WiUiam, of Limerick,
established in the Nursery in
Waterford which had been pre-
