    • P. Hore Synnott Pedigree (1913), page 19:
      'Edmund of Lingstown [F Vol 31 p479]'
      Source record F: M.S.S. of the late Herbert F. Hore
      Hore at page 63 says:
      '1630, Edmund Synnot of Lingstown, Nicholas of Farrolstown, James of Rosegarland, Peter, son & heir of Nicholas, and others in reversion. Edmund died 15 April. Walter nearest of kin & next heir, viz son of Martin, son of Walter, brother of Edmund. Walter at full age at time of E's death, and married. Elizabeth Brian widow of Edmund.[5]'
      [5] I No. 55
      Source record I: Chancery & Exchequer Inquisitions post mortem

      Hore (1913) has a separate descendancy pedigree for Edmund and Elizabeth Bryan on page 27. It differs substantially from both page 63 (see above) and Burke (1976). Hore (1913) says that Edmund and Elizabeth had two sons Edmund and Walter, and that this Walter had a son Martin and a grandson Walter. The facts which appear to relate to Edmund are spread between the father and son. They are set out here:
      The father: 'Edmund Synnot of Lingstown = an Irish woman, Elizabeth Bryan [see p63]
      accused with others of violence and robbery in 1537.[3]'
      The son: 'Edmond of Lingston, on a jury 1612[4], will dated 5 Apr 1630. ob. s.p. 15 Ap 1630. His gnephew Walter his heir.[5]
      [3] G Vol V, pp135-6. This Edmund & the one at p19 may be the same.
      [4] G Vol V, p229.'
      [5] I. The Synnots were not owners of Lingston in 1641.'
      Source record G : Hore's History of the County of Wexford
      Source record I : Chancery & Exchequer Inquisitions post mortem

      The second son Walter and his descendants have the same sequence (Walter-Martin-Walter) as Edmund's brother Walter and his descendants, and appear to have been included in error. They have been omitted.

      The Edmund accused of violence and robbery in 1537 must be a different person - Edmund's father Richard was born in 1527, so Edmund would not have been born by 1537.

      There is a faint note by Nicholas Joseph Synnot or Pierce Nicholas Netterville Synnot on page 27 of Hore (1913). It refers to Walter and Ballybrennan but is illegible otherwise. The note may indicate concerns about the accuracy of this pedigree of Edmund.

      Edmund Synnot Esq., the third son, was from Lingstown, Forth. He left a will dated 3 April 1630.

      According to Burke's Irish Family Records (1976), Edmund was granted Lyngstown and other villages by his father, he married Elizabeth Bryan, and died without issue on 15 April 1630, bequeathing the village of Lyngstown to his grandnephew Walter Synnot, of Ballybrennan. This Walter was the son of Martin, who was the son of Edmund's eldest brother Walter.

      An Edmund is mentioned as “Sinnot of Garynisky near Erdmine Ballyghkeen in the Parish of Castle Ellis in Carew MS 600" - it is unclear if this is the same Edmund.
