Subject: More on Comerford

Hi, here's a little more from O'Hart "Irish Pedigrees", Vol 2.
The Comerfords came to Ireland with Strongbow to Co Wexford and were
"of note" from the time of King John and in the French and Spanish services.
A Roger de Comerford was a Major-General and Colonel commanding
a Royal Regiment of Irish Infantry in the service of Philip V of Spain.
A french MS names 7 of them (six captains and one lieutenant) as officiers
in the Irish Brigade in France. 4 were Chevaliers of St Louis (Nope, I don';t
know the significance of that). In Danganmore, County Kilkenny, they
were long of "Baronial significance". Five were officers in the Irish Army of
King James II. The Comerfords were dispossessed of their estates by
Cromwell and after the Williamite wars.
Eh, maybe you Comerfords are on the wrong list <grin>!!
