ONE (or Seigin), brother of Cineth who is No. 100 on the "Dowlidg"
iigree, was the ancestor of CMuircatha (sometimes written MacMarchada,

• 0^ Murphy : According to Dr. O'Donovan, this family was originally seated at
;le Ellis and Ouleartleagh (abhalghortliath : Irish, "grey orchard ;" and from which
ilart" is derived), in the barony of Ballaghkeen {bealach caoin : Irish, " the
oth or pleasant roadway"), in the east of the county Wexford. The country of
O'Murphys is still called the "Murroes."

The Sept of O'Morchoe of Hy-Felimy possessed the territory extending from the
ids of Hy-Kinsellagh at the river Oanavara to the bounds of "Sinnott's Land" in
'barony of Shelmalier, which comprised almost the whole of the present baronies of
iighkeen North and South, county Wexford. The Sept kept their ancient customs
retained their gallowglasses (or armed soldiers), known as O'Morchoes Police, down
lie 16th century, and were allowed to hold their lands by desceut, according to the
ish custom, and not by Tanistry, which was the Irish custom. (See State Papers

In 1611, the advowson of the Rectory and Vicarage of Kiltennel was granted by
Drown to Sir Edward Fisher, Knt., his heirs and assigns. Same time there was
ted to him 1,500 acres Irish measure, of the towns, lands and hamlets, situated in
territory called Mae-de-mores, the territory of the Sept of O'Morchoe, together with
•iver Ounevara, and the mountain of Torchill (Tara hill), the whole of which was
Jtters patent erected into the manor of Fisherstown or Fisher's Prospect. This
Mward Fisher was one of the Commissioners appointed for the settlement of this
ty. By the records of the Royal Visitation (1622) it is shown that the rectory of
snnel had been an appropriation of the Monastery of Glascarrig, and that the
'age was in the gift of the Crown.

In 1628 Adam Colclough was created a Baronet. He died in 1634, leaving but one
Sir Caesar, who dying without male issue, the Baronetcy became extinct.
[n 1608 the borough and Castle of Wexford were granted to the Corporation of that
. at a yearly rent.

February 4th, 1619.— It appearing that considerable disputes were occurring
een the Moroives (or O'Morchoes) and Sianotts about their boundaries. King James
d orders for an Inquisition to be held to settle the matter in dispute between them.
Commissioners accordingly met in the Town of Wexford, and the following is
award :— "The true meares (boundaries) between the territory of the Morowes
Synotts land were in manner following — that is to say, from Loughnepeast to
•nebea, from Askenebea to Clashnekern, from thence to Dowlogh, and from thence
J the suike or valley leading to the heigh way, where the valley called Glane
htein, leaving Kilmoghoor, Coroghtloe, Tailorstowne, and Rawen, with all the

■ and other members to them and every of them belonging, to be within Synotts
and no part of the said territory of the Morowes, were within the precincts

of, as appeareth by the said meares."

I'his simple device was evidently the basis of the present Bearings ; but we know

Dnsiderable portion of this con-

'throw of Donal Mor and the
ugation of his followers {iemjJ.

the Sept " O'Murphy," from which,
as an independent Sept, they never
rallied. Many of them dispersed
and settled in Carlow, Kilkenny,
and the neighbouring counties,
where they afterwards became nume-
rous.J Some went to Spain where
they distinguished themselves in
arms.§ Later on, in the Crom-
wellian period, and after the capitu-
lation of Limerick, numbers followed
Sarsfield to France, many took
refuge in Spain and other countries,
where they also distinguished them-
selves in arms and diplomacy.jl In
the Patent and Close Rolls in Chan-
cery, 5th Edward VI., Donal Mor is
styled ''Lord O'ilfor^Ao" (O'Murphy),
which establishes the position of the
Sept, and its Chief at that time, as
