  • Notes 


    • The London Gazette, of 11 April 1902 recorded that on 17 Feb 1902 at Whitehall, London, Arthur FitzRoy Hart was granted, by the King, a Royal licence, with his wife Mary Susanna, to use the name 'Synnot' after 'Hart'. Arthur was authorised to bear the arms of Synnot quarterly with his own family arms, and the surname and arms could be taken, borne and used by the issue of their marriage. The arms were first to be duly exemplified according to the laws of arms and recorded in the college of Arms, otherwise the Royal licence and permission would be void and of no effect.

      P. Hore Synnott Pedigree (1913), page 15:
      'Mary Susanna = Maj. Genl. Arthur Fitzroy Hart, b. 4 May 1844 md. 22 Dec 1868.'
      There is also a handwritten note by Nicholas Joseph Synnott or Pierce Nicholas Netterville Synnott: 'CB CMG' (referring to Maj. Gen. Hart).

      Burke's Irish Family Records (1976) gives Arthur’s date of death as 20 April 1910. He died on 29 April 1910:
      Beatrice M. Hart-Synnot (ed), Letters of Major-General Fitzroy Hart-Synnot C.B., C.M.G. (Edward Arnold, London, 1912) at page 320 gives the date, and describes the circumstances of his death.

      The Cheltenham Looker-On of 14 May 1910 has an obituary of Arthur Hart-Synnot, headed 'The Services'. It advises that he died in London after an operation. He was son of the late Lieut.-General Hart, and assumed the additional surname of Synnot by Royal Licence in 1902.

      The Gloucestershire Echo of 14 Jun 1910 reported at page 3:
      'General A. F. Hart-Synnot
      The late Major-General Arthur Fitzroy Hart-Synnot, of Ballymoyer, Whitecross, Co. Armagh, an old Cheltonian, left estate in the United Kingdom valued at £81 5s 5d.'
