ants," A.D. 1 5 13. The original patent is still at Brussels, and is attested
by letters from King Henry VIII. to the Emperor, setting forth the motives
which induced the granting of the patent, namely : " The origin of the
name, taken from Viti, a people of Germany, the bravery which that noble-
man displayed at the sieges of Tourenne and Tournay, the goodness of his
disposition, and, finally, the beauty of his person, a quality hereditary in
that family." (See Abbe McGeoghegan's "History of Ireland," chap xvii.,

) HISTORY OF MAUNSELL, OR MANSEL,

Right Honourable Sir Ignatius White, ahas D'Alby, Knt. Baronet of Eng-
land, and Baron de Vigue, now Marquis D'Albeville and Knt. Baron, Count
and Marquis of the Empire, to receive honours from any King at amity with
his Majesty." Accordmgly, there is entered a grant from the Emperor
Leopold, dated August, 1658, to Dominick Vitus, alias White, Baron and
Count D'Albi, that he and his children should be Counts and Countesses
D'Albi. Also one from the same, 'dated 20th August, 1677, to Ignatius
Vitus, ahas White, that he and his children should be Marquis and Mar-
chioness D'Albeville. The Dutch Ambassador, Van Citters, in announcing
his appointment as Ambassador to the States in 1686 mentions him as
"formerly known by the name of Baron White, an Irishman, and a Roman
Catholic, of good understanding and good breeding, who conducted the
business of the English Monarchy for several years at Brussels and Madrid
in the lifetime of the late King Charles II." Whilst in Holland he gave a
magnificent entertainment, and had a medal struck, to celebrate the birth
of Prince James. In consequence of his persistent and effectual demands
that Bishop Burnett should be removed from the Council of the Prince of
Orange, he incurred that political prelate's unstinted animosity, insomuch that
the Marquis was subjected to much personal danger, and many insults from ■
Burnett's partizans. After the battle of the Boyne, by D'Albeville's advice
and that of the Duke of Powis, the two Chancellors and the Lord Chief
Baron, the trusted members of the Council, King James resolved to go to
France. D'Albeville accompanied the King, and was placed under attainder

of Athlone, and several others, were proclaimed outlaws from the Tholsol

Maria, dau. of Patrick FitzThomas, nineteenth Lord of Kerry. She died

Ultonia, or Ulster, in Spain in 1732, and they had a son, afterwards
Captain- General of Artillery to His Most Catholic Majesty, and was
