* Troiose : A trouse or trowse was a tight-fitting article of dress that comprised
one piece " britches, stockings, and socks or sandals." We read that Sir John Perr«
lord depnty of Ireland, would not admit members habited in the Irish mantle (
cloak) and trowse, to attend the Parliament he had convoked, a.d. 1586 ; and
induce those members summoned to that assembly to appear in English attire,
bestowed both " gownes and cloakes of velvet and satten on some of them:" a f
dress, whatever it might be now, not being an inappropriate gift for a gentleman, a1
time when a rich robe was often a most acceptable present to the Queen. — See War

i Cloaks : From the Irish word Ireac, which means "speckled or of vario
colours," some of the Gauls were called Galli Braccati, and their country Gal
Braccata. Diodorus Siculus {Lib. 6,) mentions that the garments of those Gauls w«
rough and party-coloured ; and calls them Bracccc. Dr. O'Brien, in his Irish Dictic
ary, observes at the word " breacan," that the Irish Scots preserved this kind
garment np to his time (a.d. 1768). Brcac, " a trout," is so called from the varic
colours of its skin.

+ Gorman : This Gorman (No. 98) was, by GeoJBEry, of Monmouth, called " Ki
Gurmaudus," who invaded and devastated a large part of Britain, circa a.d. 593.

§ Jlcath : The migration of members of this family to Meath took place in t
ninth century, where their descendants remained until the 15th century, when Gormaj
town passed into the possession of the English family of Preston. It is very probal
that the celebrated martyrologist, Marian or Maelmuire O'Gorman, Abbot of Kno
(Cnoc-na-napstol), near Louth, was of this branch of the family. In 1171 this Man

)'Gorman composed a calendar generally known as the Calendar of Marianus.
hough their property was lost to them, the Meath O'Gormans did not forsake their
.ncient district ; at the present time they are numerous in Monknewtown and Slane,
ut some of them in reduced circumstances. Slane had been their burial-place, and

that church-yard numerous tombstones belonging to them still exist. At the period
f the Revolution the family had a respectable standing ; for, we find a member of it,

James O'Gorman, holding the position of a lieutenant in Lord Slane's Infantry
egiment, in the service of King James II. From that James O'Gorman the descent

the present day is as follows :

1. James O'Gorman, Lieut, in Lord
lane's regiment. After the war he
ntered into trade as a timber-merchant,

Oxmantown — now Queen-st., Dublin.

2. Patrick Gorman^ of Queen-street :
13 son ; dropped the prefix 0\ and m.
ecily Christie. Will dated 3rd Nov.,
744 ; directs his body to be buried in
lane, county Meath.

January, 1785; was buried in Slane.

4. Thomas Gorman, of Queen-street,
ho m. Alice, daughter of Carberry,

Ballyleas, co. Dublin (descended from
" Innocent Papist" of the days of
larles 11.) ; died July, 1836, and was
iried in the new cemetery at Golden
ridge, near Dublin. His eldest son was :

5. Thomas Gorman, who m. Catherine

Keogh, of Mount Jerome, co. Dublin —

Gorman's eldest son was :

6. Thomas O'Gorman, who resumed
his Celtic prefix O', and m. Aunabella,
eldest daughter of Edmond Hanley, of
Lakeview, co. Roscommon, (who, there
is reason to believe was the head of the
grand old family of Kiuel Doffa, the
patron saint of which was Saint Bearagh,
whose Pastoral Staff known for ages in
the CO. Roscommon as the Baclial Gear
(or short staff) was in said Hanley's pos-
session until 1862 or 1863, when it passed
into the collection of the Royal Irish
Academy, Dublin, where it is now pre-
served.) This Thomas O'Gorman, of
RathGorman, Sandymount, Dublin, has
two sons and one daughter surviving in
1887, namely, 1. Victor, 2. Chamberlayne,
and 1. Josephine.

* O^IIaUoran: This family were, as the name implies, "importers" of Wine;
and were lords of Clan Fergail, a district in which Galway town is situate ; and had
their castle at Bama, close to the sea-side, about three miles west of Galway. The
MS. Vol. H. 2. 17, in the Library of Trinity College, Dublin, states that " O'Halloran
is the chief of the twenty-four townlands of Clan Fergail ; and of these are the
O'Antuiles and OTergus of Eoscam." That statement refers to the twelfth century.
These twenty-four townlands of Clan Fergail lay east of the river Gallimh (or '* Gal-
way.") The name " Clan Fergail" is now obsolete ; but " Eoscam," on which are the
remains of a round-tower, is still well known. It lies about three miles S. E. of
Galway. In the 13th century the O'Hallorans were dispossessed of their ancient inheri-
tance of Clan Fergail, by the De Burgos ; and were obliged to emigrate, with the
O'Flahertys, to lar (or West) Connaught, where they built the castle of O'Hery in
Gnomore ; and also, according to tradition, the castle of Einvile in Northern Conne-
mara. O'Flaherty, in his Ogygia, claims for the House of Clan Fergail the celebrated
Saint Finbar of Cork. According to the Chronicles of the Wars of Thomond, at a.d.
1309, there was another family of the O'Hallorans in Thomond, descended from the
stock of the O'Briens and other Dalcassians in Munster. — See Haediman's West
