Doctor Kirby, Bishop of Lita, and Eector of the Irish College in Eome (through whom the Presentation was made), the following courteous reply : "Rome, 30th December, 1881. And we beg to say that, while our Ieish Pedigrees and our Irish Landed Gentry are necessarily vational in character, there is nothing in them to wound the feelings of Celt or Saxon, Catholic or Protestant, Liberal or Conservative. "Dear Sir, " I had the pleasure to receive your esteemed letter of the 25th instant, which was followed by your Work on the ' Irish Pedigrees ' a day or two after. " John O'Hart, Esq., " Eingsend, Dublin." It only remains for us to express our grateful acknowledgments to Sir Samuel Ferguson, LL, D,, Q, C., and the Officers in his Department with whom we came in contact in the Public Record Office ; to John K, Ingram, Esq,, LL, D., the Librarian of Trinity College, and his obliging Assistants ; to the Rev, M, H, Close, M. Hardinge,* in his " Circumstances attending the Civil War in Ireland, in 1641-1652 " (Dublin : M. Gill, 1866), truly says : ' ' In the rise and progress of Empii-es, as naturally as in the lives of men, there are events concerning which the biographer or historian would willingly remain silent, did not the salutary lessons to be derived from them demand publication." That sentence we freely adopt on our Title-page, and we heartily endorse the sentiment it contains.

Members of many of the present Irish families will see in one or other of the Lists given in this Volume the names of their ancestors who first obtained grants of Land, and settled in Ireland during the Elizabethan, Straffordian, Cromwellian, or Williamite Confiscations : And Oh ! f Commonwealth : The Books of the Commonwealth which are forthcoming, consist of fifty-six volumes, and are all in Manuscript. 247 of this AVork, the Preface to the Commonwealth Volume "Forfeiting Proprietors, Listed." i PEEFACE. If, however, any Volume of Transplanters' Certificates of the Commonwealth period has been lost, the names of the Transplanters therein recorded are, no doubt, included in the '' Inrolments of the Certificates of the Commis- sioners appointed for hearing and determining the Claims of Transplanted Persons, in the Province of Connaught and county of Clare : Preserved * Precincts : The names of those Precincts were : 1. In the fervent hope that the knowledge of the relation which the lineal descent of the present Royal Family bears to the ancient Eoyal Stem of Ireland, would conduce to a kindly and sympathetic feeling on behalf of her Gracious Majesty towards our suffering country, we, with profound respect, humbly forwarded to Queen Victoria a copy of the Third Edition* of our Irish Pedigrees ; in pp.

Library of Trinity College, or in the Royal Irish Academy, Dublin, since that Edition was compiled ; with a few of the genealogies contained in that Edition, which we have been able to enlarge or correct since that Work was published : amongst them being the genealogies of the " Bennett," '^ Dillonf ," "■ Mac Grath," "O'Brien," "O'Byrne,""0'Donel,""0'Shea,""0'Toole,"'Turcellf, "and " Sweney " families, &c. But, should we live to see a second edition of this Work, and that we are sustained in its publication expenses, we shall therein give each pedigree in proper sequence and its regular alphabetical order ; as well as put in dictionary form at the top of each page of the genealogies the first three letters of the name of the family pedigree thereon given ; as we do in the Addenda to this Volume. in the Office of the Chief Remembrancer of the Exchequer, Dublin." The names appearing in those Inrolments are given in the Paper No. " that in no other country can be found a more curious or important series of historical books than these of the Commonwealth in Ireland ; and, while one cannot but regret the disappearance of so many volumes not in any way accounted for, it is fortunate that so many remain.; as they present in very considerable completeness the course of the Government of Ireland during the Commonwealth Rule." In the " Books of Survey and Distribution" (to which we shall pre- sently refer,) may be seen the names and addresses of the " Forfeited Proprietors " of the Commonwealth period, in any of the counties of Ireland ; together with the names of the persons to whom those forfeited Estates or portions of them were then conveyed. The reader who wishes to consult any of those Volumes, or any other Volume, Will, Eecord, or Document deposited in the Public Record Office, Dublin, can there do so on payment of the small fee of one shilling. We also give the names of the Regicides of Charles I. 469 in the Appendix, a few of the entries under the counties of Leitrim and Sligo ; but, as a tribute of affection for our native home, we give in their entirety* in that Paper the names of the Landed Gentry in the barony of Tyrawley and county of Mayo, in the memorable year, a.d. But, while in the Spanish Netherlands, France, Spain, and other European countries Irishmen have shed lustre on their native country, we venture to say that nowhere and under no circumstances have they displayed more heroism, magnanimity, dauntless enterprise, genius, dignity, burning zeal, good citizenship, unsullied fidelity, and adminis- trative power, than in the Service of America.!

But, in our desire to meet the wishes of friends who urged the publication of this Work " as soon as possible," we regret that all those additional genealogies are not, in their regular alphabetical order, given with the others in the early pages of the Volume : because we went to Press before we had completed our investigation of some of those additional pedigrees. A careful perusal of some of the Papers in the Appendix, particularly those numbered G, 7, 8, and 9, will show that in the wide field of our genealogical research we have been unable to collect all the Irish and Anglo-Irish Pedigrees ; but we are satisfied that we have collected all the Irish pedigrees that are preserved in our public archives, or that escaped the ravages of the Elizabethan Wars, and the Strafford and Cromwellian devastations, in Ireland. t Provinces : The names of the Transplanters from the Provinces of Leinster and Munster, contained in the above-mentioned Volumes, are given in pp. ; the Declara- tion of Charles II., and the Restorees and Nominees mentioned in that Declaration ; the Grantees of Land in Ireland, under the " Commission * Savimar'tzed : The Summary of those Records in the Report of the 1st of Feb., 18S2, to the ^Master of the Rolls in Ireland, by Sir Bernard Burke, the Keeper of the State Papers in Dublin Castle, is so lucid, that, in preference to our own voluminous Notes of the Contents of the Commonwealth Records, we liave respectfully ventured to adopt Sir Bernard's Summary. 27-52 of the •' Appendix to Fourteenth Report of the Deputy Keeper of the Public Records in Ireland." PREFACE. As to them in exile the Laud of the " Stars and Stripes " had been a refuge and a home, for that Land our countrymen with willing hearts have fought, and bled, and died.
