1 in stock

Dublin: M.H. Gill, 1876. pp. xxv, [ii], 411, 416. Crown octavo. Green cloth, titled in gilt. Occasional foxing. A very good copy.
John O’Hart (1824-1902), genealogist, was a native of Crossmolina, County Mayo. Although it was his wish to join the priesthood, family circumstances prevented this. He joined the Royal Irish Constabulary, but left after two years to take up a teaching post with the Commissioners of National Education. Included in this volume are the genealogies of many of the Huguenot families, the Protestant Refugees who were driven from their homes in the ‘Palatinate’ by the French during the reign of Louis XIV. There is also an excellent appendix containing lists of Irishmen who have served in the Spanish army, Austria, Irish Legion, Irish Brigade, Spanish Netherlands, with various lists of Irish and Anglo Irish families and descendants of the ‘Wild Geese’.
