> Your queries about Martin are interesting. I have written the short
> biography in the forthcoming Dictionary of Irish Biography; in that
> I give him credit for organizing five shiploads of settlers, as per
> the various sources consulted. Maybe I need to be a little less
> confident about his role, in the light of your comments.
> I'll look forward to more discussion.
> Does anyone know for sure his date of death? Two dates, 25 October
> 1806 and 13 January 1807 are suggested. I suspect one may be the
> date of a fall from his horse, and the later one may be the
> deathdate, but I'm not sure
