A very good copy. Very scarce.
Detailed history of the family of the Earl of Lucan and the Earl of Clanmorris. At Cloonagashel in 1585, Richard Og Bourke was hanged by Richard Bingham for his part in the Bourke rebellion. The following year Sir Richard wrote to the Lord Deputy Perrot: “Only the Bourkes of Castlebar, the first beginners of these broils, persist in their bad action without submission. But I will make them as humble as the rest very shortly”. This promise he carried out effectively. He hanged Edmund Bourke of Castlebar, after a so-called trial at Donamona Castle, even though the frail old chieftain was over eighty and had to be carried to the scaffold. This resulted in the confiscation of the Cloonagashel and Castlebar estates. The latter was sold in 1591 to John Bingham, nephew of Richard, for 100 cows and the unpaid rent of £15.
