This is a branch of the ancient Milesian
family of O' Shee, now represented by Sir
George Shee, Baronet of Dunmore, in the
county of Galway, and which claims descent
from Oliollolium, King of Munster in the
third century.

Richard Shee, esq. who m. Miss Archer,

• The following lines of Lord Byron attest the high reputation of Sir Martin Shee, as a painter
t»nd a poet : —

" And here let Shee and genius find a place,
Whose pen and pencil yield an equal grace ;
To guide whose hand the sister arts combine,
And trace the poet's or the painter's line ;
Whose magic touch can bid the canvass glow,
Or pour the easy rhyme's harmonious flow ;
While honors, doubly merited, attend
The poet's rival, but the painter's friend."

These verses refer to " Rhymes on Art," and " Elements of Art."

SIKES, THE REV. JOSEPH, of the Chauntry House, in the county of Notting-
ham, LL.B. b. 13th November, 1781. succeeded his father in 1798.

Leedes when first incorporated, and his son
Richard, Parson of Kirkheaton, £1350 deep
in the list of compounders," — a circum-
stance of singular distinction at that period.
The name was of eminency in Richard III.'s
time, when, by the " inquisitiones post mor-
tem, et ad quod damnum," we learn that a
writ of mesne was sued by Robert de Sike
against Daniel Fletwitch, to acquit him ot
services demanded by the King, the said
Robert holding of the crown as mesne lord.
It appears also, that Robert and Henrie de
Sike were parties, or witnesses, to a deed of
extensive transfer early in the reign of
Elizabeth ; a curious portrait of the latter
(Henrie) is now, among others of little less
antiquity, at the Chauntry House. In a
subsequent era, the close of Queen Anne's
reign, a Captain Richard Sikes was sent on
a military mission to Ireland, and appointed
governor of the town and castle of Athlone.

The Rev. Richard Sikes, fifth in lineal
descent from Richard Sikes, of Sikes Dyke,
temp. Henry YI. and eldest son of the Rev.
Richard Sikes, the Rector of Kirkheaton,
was himself Rector of Spofforth and preben-
dary of York. He espoused Anna, daughter
of the Rev. Mark Mickletkwait, Rector of
LongMarston, and had, with other children,
who d. issueless, a son and heir,

Richard Sikes, esq. M.A. who wedded
Martha, daughter andheiress of Sir Francis
Cavendish Burton, of St. Helens, in the
county of Derby, and dying in 1696, left a
son and successor,

Joseph Sikes, esq. b. in 1686. This gen-
tleman espoused Hannah, daughter and
heiress of William Chambers, esq. of Derby,

This ancient family, as we are informed
by Mr. Thoresby in his " Ducatus Leodien-
si's," published in 1715, derives its surname
from Sikes, or Sike-Dyke, near Carlisle, in
Cumberland, among the gentry of which
shire we find Walter de Sike returned about
the commencement of the fifteenth century.
One of its branches subsequently settled at
Leeds, in Yorkshire, the same learned an-
tiquary acquainting us (after describing the
castle "of that town besieged by King Ste-
phen on his march to Scotland, and in which
the ill-fated Richard II. lodged some time
prior to his barbarous murder in Pontefract)
that " where of old it stood, is now a capital
messuage, and the ancient manor-house,
lately with the park, &c. the estate of Ri-
chard Sikes, esq. ; his grandson Richard
having also it appears been Alderman of



uncle to the fifth Countess of Exeter, and
left, at his decease in 1751, a son,

Joseph Sikes, esq. who was, for nearly
half a century, one of the acting magistrates
and deputy lieutenants for the counties of
Nottingham and Derby, and was, as such,
not less properly than liberally excused the
office of sheriff for either county. He was
during an extended period chairman of the
Newark bench,as also of its local magistracy,
and in those important capacities was in fre-
quent correspondence at eventful epochs
with several of the principal members of the
then Governments. He held for some time
the honorable station of one of the gentle-
men of the privy chamber to King George
III. and during the more meridian dis-
tinction of that celebrated military com-
mander, the Marquess of Granby, was
strongly urged by his Lordship, as well as
by his own second cousin, Brownlow, ninth
Earl of Exeter, (great uncle to the present
Marquess) to accept, as a reward for his
valuable and indefatigable public services,
their recommendation for a baronetage, an
Imnor which he more than once declined.
This praiseworthy country gentleman, who
was thrice Mayor of Newark, espoused first
Jane, daughter of Robert Heron, esq. of
Newark, and aunt to Sir Robert Heron, bt.
but by her, who died in 1778, had no sur-
viving issue. He wedded secondly Mary,
daughter of the Rev. R. P. Hurton, Rector
of Doddington, in Lincolnshire, and domes-
tic chaplain to Lord Delaval, by whom he

ed by a maternal aunt.

Seats — The Chauntry* House, Newark,

* This residence, a royal grant to the maternal
ancestor of Mr. Sykes, (Sir Edward Snell), had
been an establishment of observant friars, of the
order of St. Francis, founded, according to Tanner,
about 1499, but the present mansion was erected
in 1725, by Samuel Foster, esq. the great grand-
father of the existing possessor.

Mr. Sullivan passed the early part of his life in the civil departments of the puhlic ser-
vice in India, and in the year 1781, was vested with the powers of government over all
the provinces south of the river Cavary. Upon the termination of the war with Tippoo
Sultan in 1785, Mr. Sullivan returned to England. In 1790 he was elected to
parliament for the borough of Old Sarum. In 1801, he was appointed under secre-
tary of state for the war and colonial department. In 1806 he was sworn of the privy
council, and in 1812, was appointed a commissioner of the board of control, where he
continued to sit until 1828.


This family is descended from the very
ancient house of " O'Sullivan More," whose
possessions formerly extended over the
greater part of the counties of Cork and
Kerry. A curious document relative to the
family is still preserved in the Record
Office in Dublin. Sir Owen O'Sullivan,
who, in the reign of Queen Elizabeth was
Tanist, or representative of the Sullivans,
during the minority of the son of the elder
brother, having refused to relinquish the
distinction, when his nephew became of
age, the queen instituted a special commis-
sion to enquire into the cause. The report
of the Lord President of Munster upon the
matter, forms the ground of the document
in the Record Office, and gives much infor-
mation on the custom of tanistry, which at
that period generally prevailed in Ireland.
The lineal representative of this ancient

Philip O'Sullivan, esq. of the city of
Cork, died in 1737, leaving two sons,

John, whose male line terminated with
his son, Phillip O'Sullivan, esq. a
captain in the East India Company's

Cork, b. 15th June, 1720. This gentleman,
