1673 Henry Ievers
1673. Henry Ievers of Mount Ievers, who is thus
described by Dyneley, 1681 (R.H.A.A.I. Journal, 1864, vol.
v., p. 73): “This gentleman came over as clerk to Mr. Fowles,
a barrister . . . and has in time, by his industry, acquired £1,000
a year; the first and chiefest of his rise was occasioned by his
being concerned in the revenue as clerk to the king’s commissioners
for applotting quit rents.” He had a grant to hold fairs at
Mount Ievers, 1679.
His will dates August 10th, 1690, and was proved at Dublin, 1692.
He disinherited his eldest son, Henry, for marrying a lady “of
noe fortune and rejecting considerable fortunes I had proposed for
him,” so Henry, senior, settled the estates on his second
son, John, ancestor of the present family. The arms (on his seal
and on those of his grandchildren), or three fleurs-de-lys
on a bend azure.
