the Appendix, headed : " Princes of the ' Maguire' family.")

The Maguires were inaugurated as Princes of Fermanagh on the summit of Coi
cagh, a magnificent mountain near Swanlinbar, on the borders of Cavan and F(
managh ; and sometimes also at a place called Sciath Gabhra or Lisnasciath, n(
Lisnaskea. They possessed the entire of Fermanagh : hence called *' Maguir^

reign of James the First, when their country was confiscated like other parts of Ulste
but Connor Eoe Maguire obtained re-grants of twelve thousand acres of the forefeit
lands of his ancestors, and was created Baron of Enniskillen — a title which was a
borne by several of his successors. Cathal or Charles Maguire, archdeacon of Clogl

t Hugh : This Hugh. Maguire, Prince of Fermanagh, took a prominent part in the
ar during Elizabeth's reign. He was a cousin of Hugh O'Neill. His mother was
"uala, daughter of Manus O'Donnell. On the death of his father he became possessed
r the estates held by his ancestors since 1302. He soon took up a defiant attitude
wards the Government, replying, when told by the Deputy Fitz William that he must
low the Queen's writs to run in Fermanagh : ** Your sheriff shall be welcome, but let
e know his eric, that if my people should cut off his head I may levy it upon the
)untry." He succoured Hugh Roe O'Donnell in his escape from Dublin Castle. In
593 he besieged the sheriff and his party in a church, and would have starved them
it, but for the intervention of Hugh O'Neill, then an ally of the Anglo-Irish. On
le 3rd July of the same year Maguire carried off a large prey of cattle from Tulsk
om under the eyes of Sir Richard Bingham, Governor of Connaught. Under that
3ar the Four Masters give a spirited account of the engagement : Sir William Clifford
id a few horsemen were slain on Bingham's side, while Maguire lost, amongst several
" his party, Edmond MacGauran (Archbishop of Armagh) and Cathal Maguire. Some
•Ontha later he unsuccessfully endeavoured to prevent Marshal BagnaU and Hugh
'Neill crossing the Erne at Athcullin. We are told that his forces, a great number

whom were slain, consisted of Irish, armed with battleaxes, and some Scotch allies,
•med with bows. In the contest Hugh O'NeiU was severely wounded in the thigh. . .
6 threw himself heart and soul into O'Neill's war, and took part in the victory of
lontibret and Kilclooney, and was in command of the cavalry at MuUaghbrack in
>96, where the Anglo-Irish were defeated with heavy loss. The same year he was,
ith O'Neill and O'DonneU, formally outlawed, and a price was set upon his head. In
i98 he held a command at the defeat of Marshal Eagnall at the Yellow Ford. Next
ar Maguire joined O'Donnell in a marauding expedition into Thomond, and took
ichiquin Castle. In March, 1600, he commanded the cavalry in Hugh O'Neill's
pedition into Leinster and Munster. Accompanied by a small party, he reconnoitred
e country towards Cork, but was intercepted by Sir Warham St. Leger and Sir
enry Power, with a superior force. Nothing daunted, he struck spurs into his horse,

d dashed into the midst of the Deputy's band, where St. Leger inflicted on him a
sadly wound with his pistol. Maguire, summoning his remaining strength, cleft his
.versary's head through his helmet, and then fell exhausted and almost immediately
pired. Hugh Maguire's name will probably live longest in the ode addressed to him
' his bard, O'Hussey, which has been so forcibly rendered into English by Mangan.—

EBB.

t Colonel Cuchonacht Maguire was sheriff of the county Fermanagh in 1687, and,
the breaking out of the Revolution of 1688, he mortgaged the greater part of his
tates to raise and arm a regiment for the service of his King, James II. He was shot
the Battle of Aughrim, where his regiment was cut to pieces, after nearly destroying
e_ 2nd regiment of British Horse. When he was killed, and the fate of the day
elded, an oflacer of his regiment, named Durnien, cut off the brave Maguire's head,
lich he put in a bag, and, starting from the fatal field, slept neither night nor day
itil he reached the family burying ground in the Island of Devenish, where he
terred his commander's head with the remains of his ancestors. Colonel Maguire was
irried to Mary, daughter of Ever Maguire, and left three sons. — From Memoirs of

MANTUA AND MONTFERRAT.

ScARRON, who was Court Poet, temjp. Louis XIV., described the Armori
Bearings of this family, in a parody written with reference to Regnier, D
d'Anjou, King of Sicily. That description was, at the request of Du
Archibald of Mantua, translated by Thomas Moore, as follows :

" Six mighty realms, beneath the helmet crowned.
Shine on the shield of Charlie the renowned :
Byzantium, Baleares and Bar, Ai'ragon, France, and Mantua,
Are blazoned aU in chief ; and underneath the shield fair Navarre.
Thus is our courteous Knight, and none such known,
A king of kings, a noble generous son.
The war-cry "Olympus Fides" doth he choose
In battle-field or Tournay's shock to use ;
And. with his emblems, birds of plumage rare.
That his brave shield may be their constant care.
With that (his loving Worship) may be seen
The Paternoster crosses of a Queen."

As in pp. 59-63 of "The Pedigree of Her Royal and Most Seren
Highness, the Duchess of Mantua, Montferrat, and Ferrara" (Londoi
1885), this family pedigree is elaborately traced in regular lineage, in th
"Table of Descent from the Irish Kings," from Heremon, son of Milesiu
of Spain, down to the Duchess and her son Charles, Prince of Mantu
(living in London, in 1887), we are content with here inserting the foUowin
extract from pp. v., vi., and vii. of that carefully compiled volume ; coi
taining the opinion of Sir John Holker, Her Majesty's Attorney-Genera
on the claims and Titles of the Duchess of Mantua and Montferrat, an
her son :

" I am of opinion on the following grounds," says Sir John Holker, ** that Am
Napier, widow of Charles Edward Groom, Esquire, Prince of Gaeta, is entitled to ti
appellation Duchess of Mantua and Montferrat, she having proved her claim theret
I have read over and critically examined all the certificates and other documents whi(
prove Duchess Ann to be the lineal descendant and heir of Ferdinand, Duke of Manti
and Montferrat, by his wife Camilla. I have read the documentary evidence whi*



in Ireland on the 5th December, 1700, we may mention his nephew Edmond MaloE
Shaksperian commentator and author, who was bom in Dublin on the 4th Octolx
1741. Lord Sunderlin, who was Edmond's brother, buried him near the fami
mansion at Baronstown in AYestmeath. Rev. William Malone, best known for 1
challenge to Protestant writers and Archbishop Ussher's reply, was bom in DubJ
about 1586. At an early age he was sent to Portugal, and then to Rome, where in 1
twentieth year he entered the Order of Jesuits. After a sojourn in Ireland, he was se
for to Rome and appointed Rector of St. Isidore's College. He returned to Ireland
Superior of the Jesuit Mission. He excited the suspicion of the Government and it
arrested ; but contrived to make his escape to Spain, where he died Rector of the In
CoUege at SeviUe, in 1659.

•oves the claim of the aforesaid Duchess Ann to the title and states of the Duchy of

srrara, of the Duchy of Este, Duchy of Modena, of the Duchy of Guastalla, of the

uchy of Bozzola, of the Duchy of Sabioneta, of the Principality of Castiglione, of the

ijunties of Canossa and Novellara, and to be the heiress of the line of Medici, Dukes of

orence and Grand Dukes of Tuscany, I am likewise of opinion, having considered

il the acts and settlements of Louis XIV., Louis XV., Louis XVL, and of Napoleon I.,

lings and Emperor of France, that the Duchess is entitled to style herself Duchess of

evers, R^thel, and Aleneon in France and Cleves in Flanders. I am likewise of

linion that the aforesaid Duchess Ann is the heiress of the line of Paleologi or last

mperors of Costantinople, and one of the heirs general of Charlemagne, Emperor of

rmany and King of France ; to be heiress also of the old Emperors and Kings of

ily ; and to be heiress of the Kings of Jerusalem and of the Kings of Cyprus ; the

ilearic Isles and Candia ; and of the King of Thessaly ; and I am likewise of opinion

at the aforesaid Duchess Ann is heiress of the Royal House of Stewart, as the chief

the line of descent of the Earls of Menteth. I am likewise of opinion that the

ichess Ann has made out her claim to be heiress of the line of Duncan, Earl of Lennox,

th on account of her being the representative and lineal descendant of Lady Margaret,

10 is proved to be the second daughter of Duncan, who married Sir Robert Menteth,

Rusky, by whom Lady Margaret had one son, who died unmarried, and two

ughters. Agnes, the eldest, became the wife of Sir John Haldane, of Gleneagles. I

ve read the certificate of the baptism of Agnes, which describes her as the eldest

ughter of Lady Margaret, and Sir Robert Menteth, his wife. The second daughter

Lady Margaret, Elizabeth, married John Napier, of Merchiston, and the certificate

her baptism now before me describes her as the second daughter of the Lady

irgaret and her husband, Sir Robert Menteth, and the certificate showing that Agnes

,s two years older than Elizabeth. And I am further of opinion that the Duchess

3 proved her line cf descent as heiress of the Haldanes, of Gleneagles, and to be chief

their family, as well as to claim priority over the other claimants to the Earldom of

nnox. I have examined the certificates of the marriage of Mungo Haldane, Esq.,

P. for Stirlingshire, with Mary Scott, of Edinburgh. He was erroaeously reported

have died unmarried. Also the marriage certificate of his daughter, Mary Jane

ildane, with the Rev. Archibald Napier, the claimant to the Earldom of Lennox as

r general of Elizabeth Menteth, the wife of John Napier of Merchiston. I am like-

3e of opinion that the two lines of descent from the sisters Agnes and Elizabeth are

w represented by the Duchess of Mantua and Montferrat. I am likewise of opinion

it she has proved her claim to be the representative of the line of the Napiers of

rchiston, Tobago, and of the line of the Napiers of Kilmahew. I am also of opinion

i[it the Duchess has brought proof that her grandfather, the Rev. Archibald Napier, and

father, Archibald, were acknowledged by King George IL, and King George III., as

rls of Lennox, Fife and Menteth ; the Attorney General in King George II.'s time,

fing reported in favour of the Rev. Archibald Napier's claim.

' ' I am likewise of opinion that the Duchess of Mantua and Montferrat has proved
• pedigree as a descendant of the ancient Kings of Ireland, and the Princes of Wales,
i as such entitled to be a representative family as regards pedigree in both these coun-
And I am likewise of opinion that the Duchess is Sovereign of the Order of
light Templars, founded 1119, by Baldwin IL ; Sovereign of the Order of Siardino del
lestina, instituted 1197, by Baldwin, King of Jerusalem; Sovereign of the Most
cient Order of the Sword in Cyprus ; the Most Sacred Order of the Redemption ;

nities which are associated with. the representation of the families which constituted

tutesof each.

" I am likewise of opinion that the Duchess can claim to exercise all the powers

ich her ancestors exercised over these Orders, and I am further of opinion that the

chess has inherited all the powers of creation which were vested in her ancestors, of

ich she is the lineal representative. And I am likewise of opinion that she haa
