    • P. Hore Synnott Pedigree (1913), page 22:
      'Nicholas a merchant in Wexford.
      of Ballintroman, Piers son & heir. see p101 for epitome of Deed. p57.'
      Page 101 states:
      'Page 23 Lease dated 2 April 1611 between Nicholas Synnott of Ballintroman, Piers his son & heir, Geo Cheevers of Killiane, & Philip Lamport, merchant of Wexford., on the one part & Hammond Stafford of Ballyconor, on the other part. The former let to the latter the town and lands of Johnstown "in the Synnotts land", in the Co Wexford at 1/- a year rent, for 101 years, with the provisi that the former may redeem the lands & annul the lease any day by paying £120 to Stafford in silver in the church of Kilroan on the feast of All Saints.. Is witnessed by John & Jas Sinnott as well as others.[1]'
      [1] F Vol 48, p224. From the Esmonde MSS.
      Source record F: M.S.S. of thelate Herbert F. Hore
      Page 57 (Disconnected members of the Clan Synnott from various sources):
      '1618...
      Richard Synnote, late of Ballybrenan, Martin, grandson, viz, son of Walter, son & heir of Richard. Nicholas Synnot, son of Walter, of Wexford, merchant...'

      It is unclear that Nicholas, the merchant of Wexford, son of Walter of Ballybrennan, is the same person as Nicholas of Ballintroman. Nicholas of Farrolston (alias Ballintroman), son of Walter of Farrolston, was one of the gentlemen of Shilmalier in 1608 and had a son & heir Peter in 1614. It seems much more likely that they were different people.
