Chapter 18. Footnotes

1. A family named Bowdy existed at Sixmilebridge until recent times.

2. The latter part of this Inquisition is very much defaced. In Cuffe’s History of the Siege of Ballyallia Castle infra, will be found an account of Martin’s escape to England, and of the difficulties he experienced in trying to gain the mouth of the Shannon.

3. Nihill also possessed the lands of Fortanebeg. His estate was sold, in 1703, to Robert Westropp of Bunratty, gent., for £435. App. 15th Annual Report Irish Record Commissoners for Chichester House Sales.

4. It is further stated, in the Inquisition above recited, that Wm. Yorke died in 1680, leaving William Yorke, Junior, his son and heir; and, that in 1694, York made a deed of release of those lands to George Stamers of Clare Castle, Esq., who was married to his sister.

5. Mrs. Yeomans was mortgagee, merely, of those lands.

6. The date of this demise would be about the year 1670.
