to trace the pedigree of the Connaught (or Parent) stock of the family ii
regular lineal descent down to the reign of King Charles I. j but we regrel
our inability to trace the regular descent down to the present time of an]

* Edmundson : William Edmundson, the father of Quakerism in Ireland, was bon
at Little Muegrove, Westmoreland, in 1627. He served as a trooper under Cromwel
through the campaigns in England and Scotlaud. In 1652 he left the army, marriedj
joined his brother (who was also a Parliamentary trooper) in Ireland, and opened a shoj
at Antrim. In 1654 he and his brother, his wife and others whom he had converteJ
held at Lisburn the first meeting of the Quakers' Society in Ireland. In consequence ol
his preaching, and that of George Fox, and other expounders of the doctrine oi
Quakerism, the Society of Friends gained many converts in Ireland, chiefly among the
English colonists of the Cromwellian Settlement. After some years' sojourn in Antrim,
he removed to Eosenallis, near Mountmellick, where he died on the Slst August, 1712.
It is believed that this William Edmundson was of this family.

of the Connaught and Leinster branches of this ancient noble stock, Our
research enables us to trace only a few generations of two of the Ornaond
branches of the family, namely — the "Egan" (No. 2), and the "Egan"
(Xo. 3), infra.

The following is the pedigree of the Connaught (or Parent) stock of the
f/Egan, MacEgan, or Egan family :

100. Cosgrach : son of Fichollach.

101. Flaithgheal : his son.

102. Anluan : his son.

103. Flaitheamh (also called Fe-
lim) : his son.

104. Gosda : his son.

105. Aedhaghan ("aedh:" Irish,
the eye; "aghain," to Jcindle): his
son; a quo Oli-Aedhagha'm.

106. Flann : his son.

107. Murtach : his son.

108. Donoch Mor : his son ; had a
brother named Saorbhreathach, and
another named Dermod.

109. Donoch Oge : son of Donoch

110. Simeon: his son; had two
sons — 1. Saorbhreathach or Justin,
and 2, Maoliosa.

111. Justin : son of Simeon.

112. Maoliosa: his son.

113. Flann (or Florence) : his son.

114. Finghin: his son; who had
two sons — 1. Owen, and 2. Conor

115. Owen: son of Finghin.

116. Teige: his son.

117. Conor: his son.

118. Teige (2) : his son.

119. Melachlin Egan : his son.']

At this stage in the history of this
ancient Irish family the estates of
Melaghlin Egan, No. 119 on this
pedigree, were confiscated by the
Earl of Strafford, then the Irish
Viceroy, under Charles I. It ap-
pears that other members of the
family held their estates down to
the Commonwealth period, and
others later; for (see our Irish Landed
Gentry when Cromwell came to Ire-

land), among the ''Forfeiting Pro-
prietors" under the Cromwellian
Confiscations in the county of Mayo,
barony of Tyrawley, and parish of
Leckan, we find the name of SoUo-
man Egan of Cashelldowna and
Killdavioge, in said parish, whose
estate was conveyed to William
Webb. Again {ibid.) we find among
the " Connaught Certificates" of
that unhappy period in Ireland the
names of Carbury Egan ; Constan-
tine Egan ; Cormac Egan ; Daniel
Egan ; Eganin Egan, son of Car-
bury ; Feigh Egan ; Pose Egan ;
Teige Egan ; and^ Una Egan: Next
(ihid,) we find, among the "Names
of Persons in the Grants," under
the Acts of Settlement and Explana-
tion (a.d. 1661 — 1665), the names
of Carbery Egan ; Carbury, Dan,
and Constantino Egan ; Flan Egan ;
James Egan ; and Una Egan. And
last (ibid.), among the "Forfeiting
Proprietors in Ireland," under the
Confiscations of William III., whose
estates were sold in Dublin in 1702
and 1703, we find the name of
Daniel Egan. In the Irish Parlia-
ment of 1797, we find the name of
John Egan, M.P., who (a writer in
Notes and Queries, Second Series,
suggests,) was the author of a num-
ber of letters on political characters
of the day that appeared during his
life-time in the Dublin Evening Post,
over the signature of "Junius

EGAN. (No. 2.)

Mayor of Killcenny,

(A Branch of the Tipperary "Egan" Family.)

The Armorial Bearings of *'Egan," of Tipperary, were, temp. Charles I., — Arms:
Oa. a tower ar. supported by two men in armour, their exterior hands resting on their
hips, in each of the others a halbert all ppr. in chief a snake or.

The Kilkenny branch of the Egan family is one of the oldest now existing
of the original sept ; being settled there for upwards of three centuries.
Its first members migrated from Ballymac-Egan, in Tipperary, and settled
in the parish of Ballycallan, county Kilkenny. During the period of the
" Confederation of Kilkenny," Flan MacEgan, who at that time was one
of the most eminent scholars of Munster, was in 1642 invited to proceed
to Kilkenny and there superintend the printing of the Transactions of the
Confederation; and from that to the present time Kilkenny has been well-
known as a publishing centre.

During the Confederation period many of the Kilkenny publications
were issued by Bishop Eothe, whose history may be said to be identical
with that of the Confederation. It was in Kilkenny, in 1762, that Bishop
de Burgo's celebrated work Hihernia Dominkana was published ; and added
to the fame which that old city had already acquired from its literary men.

In our own time, the Transactions of the Royal Archceological Associationi
of Ireland, which in the main treat of the antiquities of Kilkenny, have!
originated there ; and the works of Banim, the Novelist, as well as the '
historical works lately issued by the Most Eev. Dr. Moran, have well kept ;
alive the ancient renown of the " Faire Citie."

At the present day, Kilkenny has made a decided step in advance ;
as a publishing centre. Mr. P. M. Egan (Patrick MacEgan), a member of
the Ballycallan branch of the " Egan" family, now represents the literary
fame of Kilkenny. He is descended from Daniel Egan (born in 1730),
who, as it appears by the Muniments of the Kilkenny Corporation, held
land in the neighbourhood of John-street, in that city, before and up to
A.D. 1790. Commencing with said Daniel, the pedigree is as follows :

3. Michael Egan (b. 1810), who
m. and had :

4. P. M. Egan, Mayor of Kil-

kenny, in 1887.

1. Daniel Egan, of Kilkenny, born
in 1730, married and had :

2. Patrick Egan, who was edu-
cated for the Eoman Catholic Priest-
hood, but afterwards devoted him-
self to trade. This Patrick (born
1770) m. and had:

Numerous works in connection with primary education have, from
time to time, emanated from P. M. Egan's pen, all of which have been
very successful in this country ; while some of them have a large circula-
tion in England and Scotland. Mr. Egan's Educational Works have, we
have been informed, now reached a circulation of half a million ! In
illustration of the history and antiquities of Kilkenny, Mr. Egan has
written an Eisiorical Chiide (some 400 pp.) to the County and City, which


highly popular ; and he has published a large work, from the pen of
\iv. John Hogan, upon Kilkenny the Ancient City of Ossory, the Seat of its
{ings, the See of its Bishops, and the site of its Cathedral.

Within the past twelve months Mr. Egan's first Novel, ScuUydom, has
•een issued from the Kilkenny Publishing Works, and has been most
avourably received by all sections of the Press, as a work of no ordinary
aerit ; and, better still, as an omen of yet more brilliant efifusions which
10 doubt may be expected from him. In recognition of Mr. Egan's worth
s a literary man, and a citizen, the people of Kilkenny have deservedly
onoured him by conferring on him the greatest favour in their gift, viz.,
lected him Mayor of Kilkenny, for the year 1887.

D. 1754, at Charleville, co. Cork, where his father was a Church of England clergy-
an. He entered Trinity College, Dublin, as a sizar, studied law in London, and
ter his return home married a widow lady of some fortune. In March, 1789, he
tered Parliament as member for Ballinakill, Queen's County ; and, from 1790 to the
•.riod of the Union, sat for Tullagh. He was a noted duellist, and hence was called
Bully Egan." He once fought with his intimate friend, Curran, fortunately without
rious consequences. Egan, who was a corpulent man, complained of the great
[vantage his size gave to his adversary : " I'll tell you what, Mr. Egan," said Curran,
I wish to take no advantage of you whatever. Let my size be chalked out on your
le, and I am quite content that every shot which hits outside that mark should go
r nothing." In after life there were few of his old friends of whom Curran was ac-
stomed to speak with greater affection than of Egan. In 1799 he was appointed Chair-
»n of Kilmainham. His means were by that time reduced, and the post was then
most his only source of income. The office depended upon Government favour, and
was intimated that his support of the *' Union" between Great Britain and Ireland
)uld lead to further advancement. As the final debate on the question in the Irish
Duse of Commons proceeded, it was seen that Egan was writhing under conflicting
lotions ; at length he rose, delivered a furious speech against the Union, and sat
wn exclaiming : " Ireland — Ireland for ever ! and damn Kilmainham !" He died, in
verty, in May, 1810, aged 66 years.— See Webb's Compendium of Irish Biography

Ballymac-Egan family, co. Tipperary, and who settled in Charleville, co.
Cork, as Master of the Endowed School of that place. Said Carbery
afterwards entered into Holy Orders as a clergyman of the late Established
Church in Ireland ; and was Protestant Curate of Charleville, from A.D.
1748 to 1770. One of his sons, whose christian name we have not ascer-
tained, also entered into Holy Orders, and afterwards became Bishop of
Philadelphia, United States, America.

Considering the date of the grant of the Armorial Bearings which head
this pedigree, and the fact that they are identical with those of the family of
the Eev. Carbery Egan, here mentioned, who was Curate of Charleville,
A.D. 1748, we are of opinion that it was to the said Carbery Egan's father
those Armorial Bearings were first granted, A.D. 1715. But the Motto of
the "Egan" of Ballymac-Egan, above given, is " Fortitudo et prudentia,"
while as a junior branch, the " Egan" family of Austria-Hungary and
Germany have it " Perseverantia et fortitudo."

Commencing with the Eev. Carbery Egan, the pedigree of this family
is as follows :

1. Eev. Carbery Egan, Curate of
Charleville, co. Cork, from A.D.
1748 to 1770, married and had :

1. James, who m. and had :

I. Pierce (b. 1773, d. 1849),

son of Eev. Carbery Egan ; born
1754, d. 1810; entered Trinity
College, Dublin, as a Sizar ; studied
Law in London ; and after his return
home married a widow lady of some
fortune. In March, 1789, Mr. John

Egan entered the Irish Parliament
as Member for Ballinakill (Queen's
County); and, from 1790 to 1800,
sat for Tullagh. He was '' Chair-
man" of Kilmainham, or, as the
position would now be termed,
County Court Judge of Dublin. Id
Parliament he voted against the
" Union" between Great Britain
and Ireland ; was, for so doing,
deprived by the Government of big
