  • Notes 


    • Burke's Irish Family Records (1976) has 3 children for Walter Synnott and Margaret Furlong - Marcus, James and Nicholas. There were 3 more children: William, Anistace and Catherine, noted in:
      David Synnott From Ruination to Recovery: the Synnotts from 1649 to 1881 (Jan 2001).
      The latter two are also in:
      P. H. Hore Synnott Pedigree (1913, unpublished).

      P. Hore Synnott Pedigree (1913), page 18:
      'Walter of Rosegarland = Margaret dau of James Furlong of Horetown, Esq.'
      and of Ballyfarnock. seized in 1626. I Chap. 1 No. 14.'
      Reference I: Chancery & Exchequer Inquisitions post mortem
      There is a faint pencilled note by Nicholas Joseph Synnott or Pierce Nicholas Netterville Synnott '(Wm p79 83 84)'. This refers to notes on those pages about William Synnot of Rosegarland. But Hore did not include William as a child of Walter and Margaret. William is found only in David Synnott's book From Ruination to Recovery: The Synnotts from 1649 to 1881 ( January 2001), Chart: The Synnotts from 1649 to 1881.

      Walter Synnot of Rosegarland was the eldest son.

      The Calendar of the Patent and Close Rolls of  Chancery in Ireland, of the Reign of Charles the First, First to Eighth Year, Inclusive at pages 107-109 sets out the grant by Charles I to Walter Synnot on 3 May 1626 of the castle, town and lands of Rosgarland, and of the towns and lands Ballylanan, Killmurreston, Rospoyle, Clongeen, Loghnagire, Ballyclomackbegg, Kilbreny and Clonfadd, in the county of Wexford.

      The grant recites the earlier grant by Queen Elizabeth to Walter's grandfather Richard and letters patent granted by Charles' father James I to Sir Oliver Lambert for the fee simple of Rosgarland. Walter's late father James had agreed to take Oliver's interest for valuable consideration, but James and Walter were concerned that there might be a defect in the letters patent as towns and lands were not named specifically. James I had agreed to grant letters patent for the premises to Walter, but this had not happened. Hence the grant by Charles I to Walter.

      The grant is also set out on page 234:
      "Grant to Walter Synnot of the castle, town and lands of Rosgarland, and of the lands of Ballylanan, Clongeen, Kilmoristowne, otherwise Kilmurristowne, Rospoile, Kilbreny, Clonfad, Loughnegir, Ballyclomackbeg and other lands in the county of Wexford ; to hold for ever, as of the castle of Dublin, in free and common socage, pursuant to his Majesty's letter, dated 3rd May, 1626 - August 5, 3. [i.e. 3 Aug 1627 - the 3rd year of Charles' reign]

      Walter's estates were sequestered in 1641 (Report Record Com. XV. 155). Although records state that he married Margaret Furlong, and they had 5 children, he may also have married a daughter of Sir Richard Masterson, according to "Annals of the Kingdom of Ireland" vol VI (1856).
