* Moody : John Moody, a well-known actor, was born in 1727. In a notice tl
throws some doubt on his Irish birth, the Gentleman's Magazine calls him the " fatl
of the English stage." But of him the poet Churchill wrote :

*' Long from a nation ever hardly used,
At random censured, wantonly abused,
Have Britons drawn their sport with partial view,
Formed general notions from the rascal few."

These lines would show that Moody was an Irishman. In 1796 he retired frc
the stage, after fifty years' service, and died in London on the 26th December, 181:

MULLALLY.

Of Moenmoy^ County Galway.

Arms : Ar. three eagles displ. gu. two and one, each holding in the beak a sprij
of laurel ppr. betw. as many crescents, one and two az. Crest : An eagle, as in th«
Arms.

O'DUGAN in his Topographical Poems says :

" The Kings of Maonmagh of chiefs,
To whom the rich plain is hereditary, —
Two who have strengthened that side, —
O'Naghten* and O'Mullally ;
Their fight is heavy in the battles ;
They possess the land as far as Hy-Fiachrach.'"

Of the O'Mullallys, Doctor John O'Donovan writes : " This family was
afterwards removed from J\Jaonmagh to the parish of Tuam (in the county
Galway), where they resided in the Castle of ToUendal, four miles to th
north of the town of Tuam/' . . . The Lallys and O'Naghtens wen
chiefs in turn of Maonmagh (Moenmoy), according to the power of each
but about the period of the English Invasion of Ireland they were drivei
out of Moenmoy, and obliged to settle at Tulach-na-dala (Tollendalj, it
" hill of the meeting," in the territory of Conmaicne Duna Moir, wher
they became tenants to the Lord Bermingham. It appears from a
Inquisition taken at Athenry, on the 16th of September. 1617, that Isaa
Laly, then the head of this family, who was seated at Tullaghnadaly (o
Tulachna-dala, as it is above written) ; William Laly, of Ballynabanaby
and Daniel Laly; of Lisbally, were all tributary to the Lord Berminghan

Moenmoy is the rich plain lying round Loughrea, and comprisin
Moyode, Finnure, and other places mentioned in old Irish documents,
was bounded on the east by the (O'Madden) territory of Siol Anmchad
(now the barony of Longford), on the south by the celebrated mountai
of Sliabh Echtghe (now known as " Slieve Aughtee"), and on the we!
by the diocese of Kilmacduagh ; its northern boundary is uncertain ; bi
we know that it extended so far to the north as to comprise the townlau
of Moyode.

After the defeat of the Irish, at the Battle of Aughrim, the head •
the O'Mullally family removed to France, and was the ancestor of tl
celebrated statesman and orator Count Lally Tolendal, who was create
Marquis by Napoleon I. " The French and Tuam branches of this family
says O'Donovan, " are now extinct, but there are many of the name sti
in the original territory of Moenmoy, who retain the original form of tl
name, except that in writing it in English they reject the prefix 0', whi(
has become a general practice among the Irish peasantry."

From an ancient pedigree drawn up about 1709 for the French bran<
of this family, from old Irish MSS., much curious information is given I
O'Donovan (in his "Tribes and Customs of Hy-Many," p. 178). Tl

* O^Nofjhten : While in the Third and present Edition of this work we give t
pedisrree of this family, we w-ere, until lately, unable to trace the pedigree of t

document is entitled *' Extracts from the Genealogy of the most ancient
and illustrious House of O'Maollala, afterwards MullalUj^ or O'Lally, of the
Kingdom of Ireland, collected from the old Irish MSS. Books of Pedi-
grees, as well as from the Eecords preserved in the Exchequer, Auditor-
Greneral and Eolls Offices in the said Kingdom. By William Hawkins,
Esq., Ulster King of Arms, and principal Herald of all Ireland, under
ihe Seal of his office, &c."

From that document we can give ten generations of the " O'Mullally''
family commencing with —

1. Melaghlin O'MaoUala,

2. John : son of Melaghlin; was sirnamed Giallaoch, or the " warlike
biostage," because in the siege of Boulogne, in 1544, he distinguished
himself very much with his galloglasses, etc. He m. Shely (or Judith),
iaughter to Hugh O'Madden, chief of his name, and lord of the territory
)f Siol Anmchada, county Galw^y, by whom he had Dermod. His brothers
ivere William O'Lally, Archbishop of Tuam, who d. 1595 ; and John
3'Mullally, who, dissatisfied with the submission of his father to the crown
)f England, and with the supremacy of Henry VIII., went to Kome with
lis red eagles painted in black on his escutcheon, off'ered his services with
aaany companions to the Pope, and warred for Octava Farnesse.

3. Dermod : son of John ; chief of his Sept; d. 1596.

4. Isaac O'Mullcdly, of Tolendal : his son ; d. 1621.

5. James O'Mullally, of Tolendal : son of Isaac ; forfeited in 1652 part
)f his estate, consequent on the Cromwellian Confiscations ; he d. 1676.
His brothers Donal and William Lally espoused the cause of King Charles
lI. ; were outlawed and all their estates forfeited. William m. and had
Edmund Lally, who m. Elizabeth Brabazon.

6. Thomas O'Mullally, chief of Tully Mullally or Tolendal : son of
Fames ; m. a sister of Lord Dillon (the seventh Viscount), father of Arthur
^unt Dillon, Lieutenant-General in the French Service.

7. Colonel James Lally : their eldest son ; was ^' sovereign" of the
Corporation of Tuam, for King James IT., in 1687 ; a member of James's
ast Parliament in 1689 ; was outlawed the same year, fled to France,
intered the French army, a Colonel in that Service, Commandant of the
jall^'s battalion in Dillon's regiment in 1690, and killed in 1691 during
he blockade of Mount Mellan (or Melian). Colonel James Lally had
our brothers : — 1. Sir Gerard,* who became highly distinguished in the
^rench Service, and d. a Brigadier-General and designed Mar^chal de
3amp in 1737 ; he m. Madlle. de Bressac, by whom he had Thomas- Arthur,
)f whom presently. 2. William, who was a Captain in Dillon's regiment,

* Gerard : On the death of his brother Colonel James Lally, this Sir Gerard suc-
■eeded to the Chief ship ; he appears to have passed through the Irish war, and, after
he capitulation of Limerick, to have accompanied the army to France. His son,
Dhomas- Arthur, bravely upheld the French flao; in India; he was beheaded in 1766,
)ut his cruel and undeserved fate stamped indelible disgrace on the Bourbons of
i'rance. Thomas- Arthur, General Count Lally of Tolendal, left a son Trophime
jrerard, Count and Marquis de Lally, who laboured for many years to remove the
tain from his father's name, in which he at length succeeded. He was made a Peer of
^'rance, on the second restoration of the Bourbons, and died in 1830, leaving an only
laughter wlio brought the peerage of Lally ToUendal into the family of her husband,
he Count D'Aux.

and killed in 1697. 3. Michael, who m. a Miss O'Carroll, by whom he
had a son Michael, who was a Brigadier-General, and who d. at Rouen
in 1773.

8. Thomas- Arthur, General, Count Lally of Tolendal : son of Sir
Gerard Lally ; was Colonel of an Irish regiment in the French Service, of
his name ; beheaded in 1766.

9. Trophime Gerard Compte et Marquis de Lally Tolendal, Peer of
France, Minister of State, etc. ; son of Thomas Arthur ; m. Charlotte
Wedderburne Halkett (having a common grandfather with Alexander
Wedderburne, Lord Loughborough, who was Lord Chancellor of England,)
by whom he had an only child (a daughter), who m. the Count D'Aux, to
whom in 1817 the peerage of his father-in-law was to descend, as the
genealogical notice appended to the Pedigree by Hawkins states.

"Authenticated by signature, dated 29th October, 1817.

"LALLY TOLLENDAL,
" Peer of France and Minister of State."

The last survivor of the senior branch of the male line in Ireland of
this very ancient family, who was named Thomas Lally, died without
issue, in September, 1838. The calamitous history of some members of
the family in France is very singular.

a short time acted as aide -de camp to Washington. He was made Brigadier-General by

dm and his numerous children and other kindrecl have descended a large progeny,
