  • Notes 


    • The London Gazette of 10 May 1864 advised Richard's appointment as a Cornet in the 1st Dragoon Guards, by purchase, replacing William Watt, who transferred to the 17th Lancers.

      The same gazette of 4 May 1869 noted Richards appointment as Lieutenant in the 1st Dragoons, by purchase, replacing John Taylor Winnington who retired. and on 23 Jan 1874, the Gazette advised that Richard had been appointed Captain in the 1st Regiment of Dragoon Guards on 21 Jan 1874, replacing A. Mesham who had retired.

      Richard gained the rank of Captain in the service of the 1st Royal Dragoons. He held the office of Justice of the Peace (J.P.) for County Kildare and also for County Clare. In 1890 he was High Sheriff of County Kildare. He lived at Oakly Park, County Kildare and at Blackwater, County Clare.

      In the Gazette, London of 27 March 1877, the War Office announced the retirement from Service of Captain Richard Mark Synnot Maunsell of the 1st Dragoons, receiving the value of his Commission.

      In addition to these responsibilities, Richard was also the Vice Chairman of the Celbridge Poor Law Union and a member of the Kildare Street Club. Being involved with what was the rudimentary beginnings of the modern welfare system was an important symbol of authority for this gentry class. The Kildare Street Club was the premier gentleman's club in Ireland.
