Dublin, there was no Parle family
in Ireland before the Viceroyalty of
Stafford in Ireland.

Under date a.d. 1636, we first
meet with the name "Parke" in
Ireland: the name "Eoger Parke"
appears as tenant, under the Earl
of Strafford, of half the Castle of
Dunally ; after Strafford had ruth-
lessly dispossessed almost all the
Catholic Proprietors of Connaught,
but especially those of the old Irish
race in his time in Ireland. The
Parke family, therefore, who were
followers of Strafford, could not have
been the founders of the Newtown
Castle, which, according to the
mysterious stone above mentioned,
was built A.D. 1609, in the reign of
James I. : just sixteen years before
the reign of Charles I., under whom
the Earl of Strafford was Viceroy of
Ireland ! And the O'Porkes had
no castle south of Dromahair. It
is worthy of remark that, on the
accession of King Charles II. (who,
himself, had drunk deeply of the
bitter cup of adversity, during the
*' Protectorate" of Cromwell), not
even a portion of their estates was
restored to any member of the
O'Hart family.

O'Hart : had a younger brother
named Calvagh.

122. Shane (2) : his son ; the last

this Shane migrated* from Maghe-
row, in the county Sligo, to the
neighbouring county Mayo ; and
there, in comparative retirement,
far from home and kindred, settled
near his wife's friends on a farm at

Doonbreeda, which they procure
for him on the Bourke (of Carrot
keel) property, in Glen Nephi

the IGth May, 1S87, writes :

"John O'Hart, F.R.H.A.A.L, M.H.S.,

680 o'ha.


o'ha, [part II]

was born at Crossmolina, county of Mayo,
in December, 1824. He received his early
English education at the school conducted
in his native town by Mr. Alexander
M'Hugh ; and at the age of ten years he
was placed in the classical school pre-
sided over by Mr. John Corley— also
situated in Crossmolina. The death of
bis brother (who was a priest of the
diocese of Killala), and other domestic
disappointments so affected the means of
his parents that while yet a boy in years
he was withdrawn from his classical
studies and reduced to the alternative of
entering the Constabulary Force. He was
place in the Depot of Ballinrobe, then
under the superintendence of Major
Priestly, Provincial Inspector of Con-
naught. That officer apparently did not
consider young O'Hart physically fitted
for the rougher duties of his position ;
for, one day on parade he jocosely told
the future genealogist that he " might
hide behind a fishmg rod," at the same
time expressing his belief that he would
be more congenially situated in a County
Inspector's office. Accordingly, O'Hart
was allocated to West Gal way, and
placed as an assistant clerk in the office
of the County Inspector at Oughterard ;
and when his officer was removed to
another county some months afterwards,
O'Hart accompanied him. His youth,
his efficiency, and a knowledge of the
untoward destiny that had so rudely
compelled him to abandon his studies,
secured bim the respect and sympathy of
all his officers save one. After a year or
two O'Hart retired from the force ; and
in 1845 entered the service of the Com-
missioners of National Education in Ire-
land. In the autumn of that year he was
admitted to the Board's Training Depart-
ment, Marlborough- street. Here he at-
tracted the favourable notice of Sir Alex.
M'Donnell, then Resident Commissioner
of National Education ; the late Robert
Sullivan, LL.D., then one of the Board's
Professors ; and Sir Patrick J. Keenan,
P.C., K.C.M.G., C.B., &c., the present
Resident Commissioner. In 1856 he was
appointed to the Ringsend School as a
Stepping-stone to promotion, under the
patronage of the late Lord Herbert of
Lea ; for the appointments to Inspector-
ships were then made by patronage.
When, however, in 1859, the National
Education Department was, for examina-
tion purposes, placed in connection with
the Civil Service Commissioners, and that,
thereafter. Inspectorships could only be
obtained by nomination and examination,


the age clause frustrated Mr. O'Hart'
eligibility for a nomination. From tha
time to the present he has devoted himsel
ardently to antiquarian and genealo
gical research. His greatest work is
*' Irish Pedigrees ; or, the Origin and Ster,
of the Irish Xation." The first volumt
of this laborious and exhaustive work was
published in 1875 ; the second in 1878
and the third (or latest edition) in 1881.
He has also written " The Last Princes oj
Tara," *' Irish Landed Gentry ivhen Crom<
v:ell came" and was a contributor tc
Hiheinia, a monthly magazine lately
published in London. A fourth and en-
larged edition of the "Irish Pedigrees'
is, we have been informed, now passing
through the press ; and we need scarcely
say that we wish it every success. . .
It is clearly the duty of Irishmen to sup
port and encourage native literature,
Here is a countryman of ours who has
attained a high rank among contemporary
archaeologists by perseverance in face oj
circumstances often adverse ; and it wert
surely a disgrace and a stigma on cultured
Irishmen if his works should fail to re-,
ceive their well-won meed of recognition
and reward."

* O'Hart : In the " Records of Ireland ; Patent Rolls ; James I,," pp. 20 and 21,
any of the " O'Harts," and " O'Hartes," are mentioned as having obtained Pardons.

t James : Having visited North Grange, on the 29th of July, 1886, we had the
easure of there meeting Mr. James O'Hart, who was then 85 years of age, and who
iturally feels a laudable pride in the ancient lineage of our family. " My sons," said

"write their name Barte, but the correct name is O'Hart.'" "Can you, sir," I
id, " show me even one stone of the old Castle of Grange, which I came all the way
3m Dublin to see ?" " Yes," he replied ; *' see (pointing to a stone embedded in the
3nt wall of one of his houses) where I have preserved a stone of the arch that was
er the front entrance to the castle of my ancestors." And there sure enough, has Mr.
imes O'Hart preserved that to him precious relic, as a souvenir of his family castle,
hich had once towered in North Grange, but was lately razed, to supply the stones
ith which the spacious Catholic church which now stands on the site of said castle,
e presbytery, and the walls around the church, have been built. ^

We may observe that we, too, wrote our name Harte, up to 1873, and omitted the
'efix 0'; because, on account of our parents' reduced circumstances, that prefix was
oitted by my brother, to whom, as a Catholic clergyman, the family naturally looked
rthe mode of spelling the name in its transition from the Irish to the English language,
id who from his boyhood (as we find his autograph in some of his books,) variously
rote his name Hairtt, Hairtte, Hartte, and Harte. The last mentioned form was the
tiiography adopted by the members of the family who, in the 12th century, first

in Drumcliffe, after the family was
evicted from Ballygilgan ; married
Ellen, daughter of Michael Cryan,

year 1848, another farm in North

settled in England, and descendants of whom came back therefrom and settled i
Ireland, temp. Elizabeth ; and, possibly, because (until lately) that was the Englk
mode of spelling the name, our dear brother thought it fashionable to adopt that fori
of orthography ; or, because, from the same motive, Furlong, in his English tranala
tion of Carolan's song in honour of Bishop O'Hart (of the diocese of Achonry) wrol
the name Harte, with an e final, and without the prefix 0' ; while Dr. W. Maziei
Brady, in his Episcopal Succession in England, Scotland, and Ireland, Vol. ii., p. 19!
writes the name 0' Harte, thus restoring the prefix 0'; but, in the Irish orthograpb
of the sirname (^O'h-Airt) there is no final e.
