* Henry : Of this family was James Henry, M.t)., scholar and author, born :
Dublin in 1799. Having been bequeathed a large legacy, he abandoned the medic
profession, and devoted himself to literary pursuits. About the year 1848, he began ■
travel through Europe with his wife and only child, and to make researches on t
favourite author, Yirgil. After the death of his wife in the Tyrol (where he succeedi
in cremating her and carrying off her ashes, which he preserved ever after), he co
tinned to travel with his daughter, who, brought up after his own heart, emulated hi
in all his tastes and opinions, and who learned to assist him thoroughly and ably in \
Virgilian studies. It was the habit of this curious pair to wander on foot, witho
luggage, through all parts of Europe, generally hunting for some ill-collated MS.
Virgil's JBneid, or for some rare edition or commentator. Having examined every M
of the jEneM of any value, he returned to Dublin, when declining years disposed hi
to rest, and where the Library of Trinity College afforded him a rich supply of ear
printed books on his subject. In 1873 appeared his J^neidea : or Critical, Exegetic<
and jEsthetical Remarks on the jEneid, with the following dedication : **To my belov
daughter, Katherine Olivia Henry, etc., I give, dedicate, and consecrate all that part
this work which is not her own," His daughter's death, shortly after the appearan
of that book, was a terrible blow to him. He himself passed away, on the 14th Ju
1876. A full list of his publications will be found in the Academy^ of the 12th Augu
1876, in the ample notice, by his friend Dr. Mahaffy, from which this sketch is taken.

^ Henry : The name " Henry" is derived from the Irish An Eigh [an ree], "1
king." This Henry O'Kane is considered to have been so called after one of the Henr;
kings of England. As MacHenry and FltzHenry signify *' the sons or descendants
Henry," and that Harry is the common name for " Henry," some are of opinion tl
" MacHenry" is another name for Harrison, which would mean " the son of Harry ■
and that Harris and Fitzh arris are branches of the " Clan Henry."

:Oth April, 1782.

126. Henry : his son ; had five brothers : I. William, 2. Daniel, 3. Robert, 4.

According to the Patent Rolls, 15* Jac. I., p. 1, Thomas Nolan (in Irish, Tomhas
Th- TJallachain), of Ballinrobe, co. Mayo, gent., obtained a grant by patent, of the
our quarters of land in Ballinrobe, for ever, which belonged to the " Fryers' House,
)f Ballinrobe." Before the date of that Grant the said Thomas Nolan resided at
* The Crevaghe" (now called Creagh), in the barony of Kilmain and county of Mayo.
;n the Indenture of Composition for that county, a.d. 1585, it was provided that he
hould have the Castle of the Creavaghe and three quarters of land thereto adjoining,
ree from the Composition rent, "in respecte of his suflBciencie to act as a Chrke in the
aid countrey." It may be here added, as a matter merely coincident, that the next
jrantee of those very lands in the succeeding century, under the Act of Settlement,
vas Mr. James Cuflfe, ancestor of the late Baron Tyrawley, and of the late (if not the
^resent) proprietor of the Crevaghe, whose first appearance here was in the capacity
)f clerk or secretary to Cromwell's Commissioners of Transplantation to Connaught
^see Hardiman's '* West Connaught," p. 251).

The above Thomas Nolan was one of the first ** English Tavern" Keepers in
!>)nnaught. When the old Irish Biatachs (see Stat. Kilkenny, p. 4) and ''Houses of
hospitality" ceased, they were succeeded by "English Inns" or Taverns. On 2l8t
December, a.d. 1616, a licence was granted to John Coman of Athlone, merchant,
md Thomas Nolan, of Ballinrobe, Esq., to keep taverns, and sell wines and spirituous
iquors : to the former in almost every town in the county Gal way, and in some towns
)f the counties of Mayo, Roscommon, Sligo and Westmeath ; and " to Thomas Nolan,
n the town of Callow, and in the whole barony of Kilconnell, and in the town and
jarony of Kilmaine, in Mayo county, during their own lives and those of Barnaby
