I started this page of deeds seeking to understand why a Capt. Francis JACKSON had been awarded the townland of Clonsast after 1641 and before 1670. This grant was unusual for a few reasons, but significantly, it was smack in the middle of a cluster of townlands awarded at about the same time to the Col William PUREFOY (1584-1659). Was there a connection between the two men or their families? So far: No. ... Sigh … My vain hope is that all this research may be useful to others.

See also: Kings Co. Deeds.

Sharon Oddie Brown. April 15, 2021 NOTE: I hope to soon update this with a companion piece that will track the family tree.

 

Before 1708, when memorials of deeds began to be recorded in Dublin, the Kings Co. holdings of Col William PUREFOY (1584-1659) of Caldecott, Warwickshire (who had died sans issue) were inherited by one of his cousins, another William PUREFOY (1622-1699). The 2nd William had been born at Wolvers Hill, Warwickshire and had died at Purefoy’s Place, Kings Co. Three of his brothers - Basil, Peter & Arthur - had also received land grants in Ireland in recognition of their service to Cromwell. The descendants of these four siblings were connected to each other through various land dealings even though they lived in a number of Irish counties, namely Kings, Galway, Tipperary, Dublin and Cork. These deeds track how the ownership of their leases popcorned between sons, brothers, cousins, and as well between their various wives (and occasionally daughters) throughout the next three centuries.

SOURCE: Purefoy of Gortnekelly, Eyrecourt An excellent Blog by Donal Burke. The first of the family to reside in East Galway was James Purefoy, who was described as 'of Gortnekilly, Co. Galway', son of Arthur Purefoy of Skreen, Co. Meath, M.P. for Kells from 1661-1666. (The heraldic Visitation of Warwickshire of 1682, however, described Arthur, the sixth son of Gamaliel Purefoy, as 'Arthur Purefoy of Ireland' who 'married ye daughter of a Bishop there but died without issue.' The 1619 Visitation of Leicestershire also gave Arthur as without posterity.) Arthur's elder brother William settled at  Clonbulloge and Purefoy's Place , King's County in the seventeenth century and also served as M.P. for Ennis during the same period as his brother's parliamentary term. Three of Arthur's brothers were established in Ireland; William, Basil and Peter and were younger brothers of George Purefoy of Wolvershall or Wolveshill, son of Gamaliel Purefoy, son of George Purefoy of Wolvershall in Warwickshire, the fifth son of Michael Purefoy of Caldecott
