Basil, Peter & Arthur were brothers who were granted lands in Ireland after 1641, and their cousin Lt. Col. William PUREFOY (1584-1659) was also granted lands. He died sans issue and his lands went to William PUREFOY (1622-1699), a brother of Basil, Peter & Arthur.

To further muddy the waters, Diana POE née PUREOY had a brother William PUREFOY about whom I know nothing. He and Diana were both children of William PUREFOY (1622-1699) & Flora HENSHAW..  More work may be needed. See will notes in next entry.

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

Memorials of deeds that mentioned PUREFOYs. There is likely more to be learned from such memorials, and that may lead to corrections to the family tree that I have created so far.

He was Presbyterian and was active on committees planning restrictive religious and moral reform – over alehouses, vagrancy and the sabbath. In 1654, he was nearly 80 and in failing health. p299

The History of Parliament. Gameliel PUREFOY, cousin of Michael PUREFOY of Caldecote, Warwickshire erected a monument to him. An ancestry tree has Sir Michael PUREFOY (1496-1570) father of a Gameliel PUREFOY (1580-1661). I suspect this Gameliel was an uncle of the Gameliel husband of Elizabeth ABEL.

·         Ballyroe and Castlecrine.— According to the Clare Inquisitions, David Ruddane was the owner of Ballyroe in 1610. Dominick Fanning was Mayor of Limerick in 1646. Of the Colonel William Purefoy, to whom grants of lands in this and other parishes were made, little is known. In 1659, he was Titulado of Rosroe castle, and afterwards, in 1683, he had a suit with Lord Clare touching the ownership of that place; but the confiscation of the Viscount’s estates put an end to the matter. Note by the Hon. Robert O’Brien to Dineley’s Journal. NOTE: This would be the cousin of William PUREFOY (1584-1659)

·         Rossroe.— The MacNamaras were long the owners of Rossroe, and Fineen, who died in 1621, was, at that epoch, the proprietor. His son, Sheeda (Nydar), succeeded, and after paying off a mortgage held on the estate by Nicholas Stritch of Limerick, he sold it to Lord Clare. Under the Act of Settlement it was granted to that nobleman, and he mortgaged it in succession to George Mathews of Thomastown, to Col. Robert Maud of Dundrum, to John Clignett of the Oilmills Sixmilebridge, and of Clonmacken, near Limerick, a fleming, and finally to Lady Shelbourne. In 1680, Dineley found the castle and lands in possession of Mr. John Fennell, as tenant of Viscount Clare. See notes of Hon. Robert O’Brien in Dineley’s Journal.
In 1659, certain of the lands in this parish were occupied by the following as “Titulados”:— Kilkishen, by Peter Purefoy, Esq.; Rosroe, by Wm. Purefoy, Esq.; and Shandangan, by Pat Lysaght and Wm. Meagh.
In 1703, John Cusack, Esq., the purchaser of various lands from the Chichester House Commissioners is described as of Kilkishen. He had two daughters, from one of whom is descended the numerous and respectable family of Studdert, by her marriage with the Rev. Mr. Studdert, Rector of Rathkeale, county of Limerick.

1642-46 1st CIVIL WAR

The Midlands’ economy was ruined for the next decade.

2nd Jun. Nineteen Propositions were presented to King Charles I when he was at

York. They sought to control the State, the Church and the Royal Family. He

rejected them outright.

22nd Aug. King Charles I raised his standard at Nottingham, this opened the

military phase of the Great Rebellion and the outbreak of the civil war. The

Queen fled to the Netherlands to sell the crown jewels to raise money.

28th Aug. The Cavaliers (Royalists) attacked Caldecote Hall, the seat of Colonel

Purefoy (Parliamentarian). Princes Rupert and Maurice (the king’s nephews)

came with Cavaliers to capture Purefoy; he was elsewhere however. Only George

Abbott (son of George Abbott, the Archbishop of Canterbury and Purefoy’s son-in-

law), defended Caldecote Hall. There were only eight other men, Mrs Purefoy

and her maids in residence at the time. They stubbornly resisted the attack by

the Cavaliers.

It is said that the household put up such a brave defence that they even melted

the pewter plate to make bullets. In the end they were defeated when the

Cavaliers set fire to outbuildings. The Abbotts surrendered to the Cavaliers,

Prince Rupert was so impressed by their courage and spared their lives. The hall

door eventually became the church door, it still contained metal shot in its fabric

until the 1950’s. (see J.T. Burgess, Historic Warwickshire, 1893)

Colonel Purefoy’s signature ultimately and ironically appeared on the death

warrant for King Charles at a later date!

W. M. Brady's Clerical and Parochial Records of Cork, Cloyne and Ross notes that "an unknown Miss DeLaune, probably the sister of Henry DeLaune of Gurtmore, Co Cork, who married a daughter of Richard Boyle, abp of Tuam"26 had married Louis Vigors, a Devonshire vicar, and was the mother of Urban Vigors, who married Catherine Boyle. Louis Vigors married again in 1610, so we must presume that Henry's unnamed sister died before this date, quite possibly in childbirth - all of which might seem very incidental but when Henry's uncle Gideon transferred to him his share of land granted during the Irish plantations, another uncle, Paul DeLaune, procured a position for him with Lord Falkland, Lord-Deputy of Ireland and he married Alice Boyle, it began a connection to Ireland and the hugely influential family of Richard Boyle, 1st Earl of Cork, that was to continue through several generations.
