According to O'Heerin's Topography, the O'Sullivans, before they settled
in Kerry, were Princes of Eoghanacht Mor, Cnoc-GrafFan, a territory ic
the barony of Middlethird, county Tipperary, which is said to have
embraced the districts of Clonmel, Cahir, Clogheen, Carrick-on-Suir, and
Cashel of the Kings, in the fifth and sixth centuries ; and are thus men

Rules over the extensive Eoghanacht of Munster ;
About Cnoc-Graffan broad lands he obtained,
Won by his victorious arms, in conflicts and battles.

The Vera-0'Sullivans are believed to have traded with Cornwall
Bristol, and places in the East ; are said to have had ships, yawls, and man;
boats ; and some of them to have been noted sailors and commanders a

of Mr. T. Murtogh Vera-0'Sullivan, in India, which has been submitte
to us for inspection) was a sailor standing upright in a boat with a fish i
each hand extended over his head, which are believed to have bee
Scripture emblems of the Christian Church. This branch of the O'Sulliva
family, it would appear, were the pioneers of the O'Sullivans, who fin
settled in Kerry ; the 0' Sullivan Mor family following soon after. Fror
their bravery and prowess the Vera-0'Sullivans were by their own peopl
styled the " No surrenders ;" and by their British neighbours they wei
called " Devils in fight." They were nearly all soldiers in the ser\^ce

most expensive education, his parents mortgaged the little property that remained t
them in Desmond, and which was held in trust for them by a kind Protestant gentk
man of that neighbourhood. After the death of Sir John's mother, he returned t<
Kerry, and privately sold the Desmond property, as the Irish Catholics were then pro
scribed. He never afterwards returned to Ireland.
