The SEDBOROUGH MAYNE family


of Co. Fermanagh, Co. Monaghan & Dublin, IRELAND
INTRODUCTION
The material below is the story (in descendant pedigree format) of the Sedborough Mayne family of
Ireland. They are seen through the records of many of the people who composed this large group of blood
relations whose history is traced from the time of the plantation of Ulster in the early 17th century. It
concentrates on the earliest records up to the end of the 19th century, and continues into the 20th century
when information is available. It covers the period when emigration from Britain to the New World was at
its height and may therefore be of value to those abroad whose family origins are in the British Isles.
It is organised into three parts and occasional articles as follows :-

Descendant Pedigree with illustrated notes on each individual of the family.


Index of individuals in the pedigree.
Sources. List of the main research sources used (before web sources were available).
Articles about the family in general or particular characters in it are occasionally included
This pedigree has been researched and compiled as part of a one-name study of the MAYNE surname which
was published by David Gore on CD in 2007 [ISBN: 9780953091218]. The following provided material or
in other ways supported the study: John Mayne in England, Stella Little , Martha OGrady and Brian
MacDonald in Ireland, and Jillian Fisher , Dell Mayne, Robert Harden Scott and Sally Scott in Australia.

The SEDBOROUGH MAYNE family


of Co. Fermanagh, Co. Monaghan & Dublin, IRELAND
The Sedborough Mayne family were first known to be established at Mount Sedborough, Co.
Fermanagh in Ireland on the marriage in about 1629 of John Mayne (probably the son of a Thomas
Mayne of Ulster) to Barbara Sedborough the granddaughter and heir of John Sedborough of Porlock
in Somerset, England.
John Sedborough, who in about 1614 was granted the Mount Sedborough Irish lands consisting of
about 1000 acres, died in 1629 bequeathing the property to Barbara and her husband John Mayne. In
1641 during the Irish rebellion of that year, John Mayne was murdered there in front of his family
leaving his wife and only son, John. This was the unpropitious start of this now widespread AngloIrish family of Mayne, which still has descendants of John and Barbara living at Mount Sedborough.

John Mayne was the son of THOMAS MAYNE, said to be of "Gloucester (England) and Newton Butler (Ireland) and living in
1629". We have been unable to verify these facts or to link this Mayne line back to the family's origins in England (or Scotland),
although a large unvalidated pedigree, produced about 1900 by John Dawson Mayne 1828-1917, has been circulated in UK
linking them to the well known Mayne(y) family of Kent in the Middle Ages, and through them to the Mayennes of Normandy
(France) back to the year 848 AD!
[Newton Butler is about 5 miles south-west of Mount Sedborough].

The records of a THOMAS MAYNE in Ulster before and after 1629 as a possible candidate for John's father include:(1) 1626. In the Exchequer & Chancery Inquisitions (about Connor Roe Maguire) held at Enniskillen, Ulster, on 22 Sept 1626,
among the 15 jury members of the first King Charles I's Court was : "Thos. Mayne of Castlecoole".
Castlecoole, just south of Enniskillen in the Barony of Tyrekennedy, is about 15 miles north of Mount Sedborough (Newtonbutler
is in the Barony of Coole which might have been interpreted as 'Castle Coole'?).
(2) 1631. Muster Rolls for Barony of Knockninny and Coole (or Cole) for 1631in which Newtownbutler is situated includes
among 92 names, under Sir Stephen Butler, the landowner there and of Crom Castle nearby, the following :
"Thomas Meanese, John Meanese, John Mayres, Edward Mayres".
(3) 1633. Thomas Myne had a land dispute with John Sedborough (Inqusitionum ...Ultonia, Fermanagh CAR. 33, 41, 1630-39).
(4) 1640. Burial of a Thomas Maynes on 24 Oct 1640 at St Michan's, Dublin.
The significance of 1629 is that it was the year of the death of John SEDBOROUGH, the grandfather of John Mayne's wife,
Barbara Sedborough, from whom she inherited the Sedborough estate in Co. Fermanagh, Ulster (Ireland). The land (1000 acres)
that formed the estate had been granted to her grandfather as part of "the Settlement (Plantation) of Ulster" in 1613/14 by Letters
Patent dated 11 Jas.I = 1614.
John Mayne's murder by Irish rebels on Tuesday 26 October 1641 is described in his wife, Barbara Sedborough's deposition
which is quoted in her notes. The memory of this event persisted in the Mayne family right into the 19th century when John and
Barbara's descendants still considered Tuesday as a day of ill omen. The then leader of the Co. Fermanagh rebels was Rory
MacGuire. Although Enniskillen remained intact during the rebellion, there were massacres at Castle Coole, Irvinetown and Tully
Castle.

Protestant

circa 1629

Children:

John (1641-1710)

Barbara Sedborough was the daughter of Peter SEDBOROUGH and Frances FETTIPLACE. Frances was the daughter of Sir
Edward Fettiplace of Colne St Aldwyn, Gloucestershire, England.
Barbara was the heiress of her grandfather, John Sedborough of Porlock in Somerset, England, from whom on his death in 1629,
she inherited his Mount Sedborough estate in the Barony of Clankelly, Ulster, Ireland, which had been officially granted to him in
1613/14 by Letters Patent dated 11 Jas. I = 1614. These 1000 acres, part of "Lattgirr", had been originally assigned to him on 18
May 1610 (Earl of Shrewsbury), and in August 1611 it was noted that John and his wife (Elinor) and one freeholder were resident
at Mount Sedborough and had felled some timber (Ref. Analecta Hibernica 8. 1938).
Notes on the 1610 Plantation of parts of Ireland with "Undertakers" from England, like John Sedborough, and from Scotland,
plus "Servitors" from the Army, and native Irishmen :In Co. Fermanagh the native Irish were all Catholic, peaceful, easy-going, traditional agriculturalists whose meagre wealth was in
their cattle. The flight of the Irish Earls in September 1607 had left Ulster leaderless. King James I and his Lord Deputy, Sir
Arthur Chichester, proposed the "Plantation" of Ulster with suitable nominees ("Undertakers") as a means of settling the northern
Ireland problem (which the British are still trying to do four centuries later!).
"It is clear that the wildness and desolation of the country must have prevented any but organised settlement. This became
possible only after the Irish War (in which the Irish and Spanish were defeated at Kinsale in 1601) and Chichester himself carried
out the Ulster survey of 1606-7 when he virtually laid out how the new communities would be."
"An indication of the backwardness of the local Irish comes from the Attorney General (Davis) who accompanied Chichester on
the survey and said of Co. Fermanagh: 'The building of a gaol and session house was likewise respited until my Lord Deputy had
resolved a fit place for a market and a corporate town, for the habitations of this people are so wild and transitory as there is not
one fixed village in all this country'."
Land was offered to the "Undertakers" in lots of 1000, 1500 or 2000 acres of arable land. The nature of the ground, with much bog
and hill, meant that the actual size of the estates were up to five times the arable acreage. In Co. Fermanagh only 3 "Undertakers"
had 2000 acres, 9 had 1500 and 21 had 1000. Those with 1000 and 1500 acres were required to build a strong house with bawn
(ditch) around it, while those with 2000 had to build a castle. They had to reside there themselves for the first five years, were
allowed to take on only English or Scottish tenants (who had to take the Oath of Supremacy), and had to keep a number of armed
men and review them twice a year. Few "Undertakers" abided by the terms of their lease. Irish continued to dominate in numbers
yet there was a hard core of British established in Enniskillen (the County town) and in and around the many newly established
villages, which continued to expand.
In 1609 and the years following, a majority of the 8000 new Ulster settlers were Lowland Scots many of whom went to Co. Derry.
In Fermanagh the Scots mainly went to the Baronies of Knockninny and Magheraboy, while the English were settled in Clankelly
and Lurg.
1629/30 & 1639. Claims to the ownership of Mount Sedborough.
(1) 20 Jan 1629/30 Chancery Inquisition held at Newton (alias Castle Coole?) and headed by Sir Stephen Butler investigated
claims by William Po to Mount Sedborough lands. Po claimed breaches of "alienisation" by John Sedborough in bequeathing
the estate to his granddaughter. His claim failed.
(2) 9 Sept 1639 Chancery Inquisition held at Enniskillen confirmed Barbara Mayne as the rightful heir of John Sedborough
(deceased 1629) and owner of Mount Sedborough. (Inqusitionum ...Ultonia, Fermanagh CAR. 1 40, 1630-39).
1631 Muster Rolls for Co. Fermanagh show that John Sedborough had 16 tenants at Mount Sedborough.
1641 DEPOSITION OF BARBARA MAYNE 1610-77 of Mount Sedborough.
Below is the statement made by Barbara Mayne, wife of John Mayne of Mount Sedborough (County Fermanagh, Ulster, Northern
Ireland), in Dublin in January 1641/2 following the stealing of her family possessions and the murder of her husband during the
Irish Rebellion of October 1641.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

AN IRISH MURDER
Lieut. Edward Mayne, late of the 93rd Regiment, and the Oakboys of Ulster.
It was with no little surprise that I discovered that in 1764 an ancestor of mine had stood trial for murder in
Ireland. Although the records of the Assize where he was tried have not survived, the verdict and details of
the events surrounding this Irish tragedy of 250 years ago are known.
My 3xgreat grandfather, Edward Mayne, had until 1763 been serving his Majesty King George III (who
later freed the American colonies) as a Lieutenant in the 93rd Regiment of Foot in Ireland. In that year
Edward was 38 and retired from the Army to his family home at Cootehill in County Monaghan, there to
marry and raise children in the tranquillity of the Irish countryside. It was then there occurred one of those
many short but violent episodes in the history of Ulster. Edward had been involved as a soldier in several of
the earlier 'troubles' and his family still remembered Tuesdays as a day of ill omen; it was on that day
(Tuesday 26 October) in the Irish rebellion of 1641 that his great grandfather had been murdered in front of
his wife and children at their home at Mount Seborough (picture) . The Mayne family still remembered.
This time Edward was called upon as a private citizen to help and advise the local Magistrate, Charles Coote
with a handful of mounted troops, in protecting lives and homesteads in the County against a growing
protest movement that had suddenly become a serious threat to peace and order. It was thanks to the
strategy and the speed with which these two acted that within a few weeks the danger was averted. Not
every County in Ulster was so fortunate.
The "Oakboy" movement had originated in north Armagh in June 1763, primarily as a protest against local
taxation. It quickly spread to County Monaghan where large gatherings of protesters, called "Oakboys"
because they wore sprigs of oak in their hats, were intimidating Grand Jury members, Protestant clergy and
others with influence in the community. The size, organisation and belligerence of the Oakboy 'army' is
shown in a contemporary description of them, "all marching in order and many of them arm'd. They fill'd at
least two miles of the road and were formed into companies with each a standard or colours displayed."
Some gatherings of Oakboys, increased by many who had been intimidated to join them, were described as
"numbering 10,000" - probably an exaggeration for several thousand at most. They were well organised,
9

mainly peaceful but using the sheer strength of their numbers and the threat of force to gain their ends. In
some cases the mere sight of redcoats was sufficient to disperse them, but a few serious clashes occurred
before order was restored and the movement ended. It was from one of these incidents that the charge of
murder arose.
It was on another Tuesday, 19 July 1763, that Edward Mayne and his Cootehill neighbour Charles Coote set
out to cover the fifteen miles to Castleblayney to confront the Oakboys there. With them they had about
fourteen of the Magistrate's tenants and a troop of light horse. It was raining heavily when they arrived at
the castle at two o'clock yet the streets of the town were crowded with Oakboys. The Magistrate's party then
repaired to an inn to await the arrival of Colonel Roberts, the commander of the Army contingent at the
castle (pictures) . After dining and toasting the King's good health, Mayne and Coote went out from the inn
alone to meet the Colonel. The two "had no arms but their swords, with their greatcoats around them as it
rained heavily. In the middle of the street Mr Coote was accosted by about twenty of the Hearts of Oak who
separated themselves from the other crowds." They had one Alexander McDonald at their head, a large but
agile man, "a most insolent fellow" who had been active elsewhere as one of the leaders of the Oakboys.
"This McDonald advanced two or three steps from his party towards Mr Coote and, upon being told that he
was a Magistrate for the County and that he should approach him with more respect and his hat off,
McDonald lept at him like a tiger and seized him behind by his arms to prevent him making use of his
sword."
"Mayne immediately drew [his sword] and extricated Coote out of their hands but was himself instantly
seized behind the back by two more. Happily Coote was then at liberty and in turn was able to extricate
him. Mr Coote and Lieut. Mayne being clear, they were then directly attacked in another manner - by [the]
firing of several guns at them out of the doors and windows of adjacent houses. These guns were loaded
with ball, which shows the Oaks were prepared, and the stones of the street flew as thick as hail; several of
them hit Mr Coote."
"The shots fir'd alarmed Mr Coote's party in the inn; they immediately came to their relief, and returned the
fire from the doors and windows very briskly. Oakboys were observed levelling their pieces at both Mayne
and Coote and snapping at them from a door. Notwithstanding they still advanced and the mob retreated
and shut the doors".
"By this time the Squadron's guard at the castle was alarmed and came up briskly. They pursued the rebels,
broke into their houses, from thence into the gardens and the fields" where fourteen prisoners were taken.
McDonald died of his wounds and three other Oakboys were severely wounded.
Despite their injuries, Charles Coote and Edward Mayne, joined from Cootehill by the latter's cousin Charles
Mayne (who later built "Freame Mount"), continued to direct operations by the Army against the Oakboys in
other parts of Counties Monaghan and Cavan. On 27 July they took part in a skirmish against a large group
of Oakboys at Wattle Bridge in which two troopers were wounded and seven Oakboys killed. On 3 August
a general pardon was offered to those who returned peacefully to their homes, and all resistance by the
rebels in the two counties was at an end.
The following year 1764, notwithstanding their prodigious effort in re-establishing the King's peace in
Monaghan, Charles Coote and Edward Mayne stood trial jointly at the Monaghan Lent Assize for the
murder of the unfortunate McDonald. However I doubt the two were seriously concerned as to the outcome.
At that time in the Protestant Ascendancy in Ireland there was little danger of a Monaghan court passing a
guilty verdict against such members of the gentry who were trying to maintain it. Indeed they were both
duly acquitted, Charles Coote was knighted for his enthusiasm in putting down the revolt and each lived into
old age and begat many children.

CHARLES COOTE OF BELLAMONT FOREST, COOTEHILL1738-1800,


THE 1st EARL OF BELLAMONT (1767)

Bellamont Forest, Cootehill, a Palladian villa built by the Cootes in 1730. Joshua Reynold's portrait of Charles Coote, 1st
Earl of Bellamont, (above right) in the robes of a Knight of the Bath, makes him look absurd.

In his youth Charles Coote, who later became the 1st Earl of Bellamont following his work in helping to put down the Oakboy
revolt, was a Captain in the 10th of Foot. For all his "gallantry and high spirits" and "dazzling polish", he was also described as
"that madman!" He fought a duel with Marquess Townshend in which Charles received a serious bullet wound in the groin. This
gave rise to much hilarity in view of his reputation with the ladies!
The Cootes as a family were nothing if not unconventional. Some of the Cootehill branch might better be described as eccentric even by the standards of the Irish Ascendancy of those times! Maurice Craig in "Dublin 1660-1860" sees them as "a great and
eminently successful stock, military adventurers from Tyrone's wars onwards and premier baronets of England". In his later years,
Burke was more blunt and described Charles Coote as "a somewhat absurd figure, ultra sophisticated and ardently Francophile,
he insisted on making his maiden speech in the Irish House of Lords in French! Pompous and an inveterate womaniser". Charles
Will indicates that he had between 15 and 18 children of whom only five were by his wife, the rest being by four other women.
Joshua Reynold's in his portrait of him (above), painted in his robes of a Knight of the Bath, makes him look rather absurd (the
portrait hangs in the Irish National Gallery, Dublin).

-----------------------------Sir William Young, Bart (1773-1848), a friend of Captain John Mayne and almost the same age, figures in his story. Both
William and his elder brother Thomas, who were the sons of Rev. John Young of Eden, Co. Armagh, had distinguished careers
with the East India Company. Thomas died in 1808 and William became a Director of the Company and was made a Baronet in
1821. He lived at Baillieborough Castle in Co. Cavan, not far from John Mayne's family around Cootehill in neighbouring
Monaghan.
It seems probable that it was Sir William's influence which caused the Captain's three sons all to go out to India. Certainly it was
he that recommended each of them in turn 1840-43.

The Career & Travels of Captain John Mayne


------------------------------------------------------------Our knowledge of JM's movements derives from numerous sources and can be summarised as follows :1772- Born the 3rd (but only surviving) son of Lieut Edward Mayne (late of the
93rd Foot) of Cootehill, Co. Cavan
1794 Apr. - Enlisted in 9th Light Dragoons; Regt. stationed in Ireland since 1717
May - Appointed Cornet; Regt. HQ at Dublin
1795 Oct. - Appointed Lieut; Regt. HQ at Longford Jul 94-Jan 96
1796-98 - Helped quell the Irish Rebellion. Severely wounded.
Regt. HQ locations:- Jan-Sep 96 at Tullamore, Offaly
Sep 96 - May 99 at Dublin
May-Sep 99 at Kilkenny
Sep 99 - Nov 00 at Maryborough, Laois?
1799 Nov - Appointed Capt Paymaster
1800 - Married Theodosia, dau. of John Colburn(e)
Regt. HQ at Ballinrobe, Galway Nov 00 - Dec 01
1801 - Son Edward born Galway
Regt. split between Ballinrobe, Limerick & Mallow, Cork, Dec 01 - Dec 02
1803 Aug - Retired after 9th Dragoons left in May for Ipswich, England
1808 - Son William born Wicklow
1810 - Wife Theodosia died
1813 - Married his cousin Dorothea, dau. of Judge Edward Mayne
1817 Jan. - Son, Dawson, baptised in Stillorgan Parish
1820 March to Sept. - Living at 7 Ely Place, Dublin
1821 - Son Robert baptised in St Peter's Parish, Dublin (Parish now defunct)
1825 - Son John baptised in St Peter's Parish
1825-38 (approx) - Living at Platanus, Lower Leeson Street (Sussex Road), Dublin
1838-40 (approx) - Living at Sion Hill, Cross Avenue, Booterstown, Dublin
1840 Nov. - Living at Beauchamp, Bray, where he signed son's Cadet Papers
1842 - Still living at Beauchamp, Bray, (Son's Writer's Application)
1843 Dec. - Living at Runnymede, Dundrum, Co. Dublin (Son's Cadet Papers)
1846 - Still living at Runnymede, Dundrum (Son's letter)
1854 - John Mayne's name appears for the last time at Runnymede. He died there on 9th March 1855 aged 82.
1856-61 Miss Mayne (JM's daughter, Dora) is shown as occupier of Runnymede.
She married Col Gustavus Walsh, son of John Walsh of Dundrum Castle, in 1862.
John Mayne therefore probably died at Dundrum about 1854 (aged 82 then) but no record of his death has been found there.
Captain John Mayne's Regiment during the Irish Rebellion of 1798.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------In that year he was a Lieutenant serving in the 9th Light Dragoons in Ireland having first joined them four years previously. We
have it from his son, Robert, that he was severely wounded during this rebellion and had two horses killed under him. However,
we know little of where his Regiment was involved let alone his part in events between May and the last action of the insurrection
in October which finally ended it. He obviously recovered because he was made Captain Paymaster the following year and left
the Regiment in 1803 when it went to England.

12

The list of the places where his Regiment was quartered during the time of the rebellion shows that the headquarters was then at
Carlow and that it deployed 9 Troops. There are accounts of the Regiment's part in the rebellion in Cannon's official record of
1841 and Reynard's 1904 history of the Regiment (which follows it closely). These have been compared with Irish rebel accounts
published in Ireland for the anniversary in 1998. From this comparison the list below has been produced of the occasions on
which the 9th were in action against the rebels and the casualties the Regiment suffered. We are unsure of how complete or
accurate this list is, but the two regimental references do show the name of any officer who was killed or wounded in each action
with one main exception. This is the operations that occurred at Castle Comer on 18th and at Kilcomney Hill on 19th June against
which is only the comment that "on these two occasions the Regiment lost many men and horses". No other accounts exist of the
Regiment's involvement in the Rebellion although Irish accounts mention actions by cavalry (unspecified) near Ferns in Wexford
on 27 May and at Arklow in Wicklow on 9 June. We have therefore concluded that Lieut. Mayne was almost certainly wounded
in the actions on 18 and 19 June since he is not named elsewhere.

COMMENT:There was a 'world-wide celebration' of the 1798 rebellion in Eire in 1998 (following the potato famine anniversary). Some
Mayne friends from New Zealand attended it and said that the organisers presented an entirely Republican view of the events of
that year in Ireland. Perhaps this is hardly surprising as Irish history has much of it grown out of an oral tradition in which the
English have invariably been cast as the villains. This is confirmed by some of the material that was put out about the events of
that year, and especially a book "Rebellion! Ireland in 1798" by Daniel J Gahan, "the foremost historian on the events of 1798",
which was published by the National 1798 Visitors Centre at Enniscorthy, Co. Wexford. Once again they have succeeded in
turning history on its head; it's as if Napoleon has been made out to have been the victor at Waterloo!

century undated). Latton is a village 5 miles due east of Cootehill in Co. Monaghan and was once part of Aughnamullen Parish.
IRISH ROUGH JUSTICE
In this and the following anecdote the subject is almost certainly Captain John Mayne. However it is just possible the Captain
Mayne referred to could be one of his sons by his first wife, Captain Edward or Captain William Mayne, but this is unlikely as
both Edward and William emigrated to Australia in about 1839; Edward returned to Ireland later under a cloud!

"The village of Ballytrean [near Latton] was once a thriving industrial town. In the 18th century the population was over 3000
people. There were many industries there such as Flax-Mills, Corn Mills, a Distillery, Tan Yard, Weaving, Spinning and Lace
Making, all of which gave employment. The town had twelve public houses, which kept some people happy and others unhappy,
and it held eight fairs each year.
After the decline of the Linen industry, emigration set in and the other industries declined. The village was decimated during the
1847-48 potato famine. Also part of the town is said to have been submerged in the waters of the local lake. Today only a few
houses remain and about two dozen local residents.
Over a century ago, a local magistrate named Captain Mayne had an effective way of dealing with offenders of the law. With

14

twelve pubs in the town, drunkenness was a common offence. Any tipplers brought before the magistrate would be made to walk
across a plank over a mill race. If he succeeded in 'walking the plank' he was released. If not, his ducking in the cold water was
sufficient for justice to be done. Anyone who refused to cross the plank would have to walk to Monaghan jail [about 17 miles
away] to serve his sentence. This system would be an ideal solution for avoiding overcrowded jails in present times!"

Captain EDWARD COLBURN MAYNE 1801?-50
Eldest of two surviving sons, he was born in Galway, Ireland, when his father was still serving as Paymaster with 9th Light
Dragoons. Entered Trinity College, Dublin 1814: BA 1821, MA 1832. Army career: Lieut. 95th Foot 1824, Capt. 1826, Half Pay
1830. Married Elizabeth Bolton of Co. Louth 1828 by whom he had five surviving children.
About 1836 he went out to New South Wales in Australia, to be joined by his brother William in 1839. He crossed the Blue
Mountains and the Liverpool Range into the north of the Colony about 200 miles due north of Sydney where they began dealing
in cattle and land. Edward settled on the Peel River 19 miles downstream from Tamworth at a place he called Summer Hill (now
the village of Somerton) where he built a six-roomed house of timber and stone on 130 hectares. He was speculating in cattle that
his brother ran for him on Warialda station on the edge of New England, until in 1841 Edward bought his own station, Pian Creek.
In those early pioneering days, settlers with standing, like the Maynes, were nominated as Commissioners and had responsibilities
for law and order, each having a squad of Border Police - recruited from ex-convicts! Edward, who was described as "an
autocratic man", complained to the Colonial Secretary about his police - probably on the strength of his "brother" having been
Metropolitan Police Commissioner. With the ceasing of transportation in 1840, NSW was no longer a penal Colony and by 1846
the Border Police were mostly disbanded. But Edward had bought cattle rashly on a falling market and in 1842-43 the Colony had

15

overproduced wool and meat and under-produced grain. Furthermore, a problem arose in 1843 over money paid by the
government into his bank to buy police horses. The money was seized by the Sheriff and Edward was dismissed as a
Commissioner. His expensive cows, bought for 20 to 80 borrowed dollars at the top of the boom, were now worth only a dollar a
head and he was broke. Edward fought his dismissal and appealed to Lord Stanley for an investigation but was never given one. It
was rough justice, and poor Edward was hounded out, even being declared unfit to hold a pastoral licence in 1846 so that he lost
his house with no compensation. He returned to Ireland a broken man and died there in 1850. (Ref. "A Million Wild Acres" by
Eric Rolls, Nelson/Penguin 1981)

Occ:
Irish landlord
COLBURN MAYNE 1830?-99
Eldest son of Captain Edward Mayne & Elizabeth (Bessie) Bolton. Since Colburn's father died in 1850, it is thought that he had
inherited his grandfather's properties before Captain John Mayne died in about 1854 (Griffiths Valuation 1850 names Colburn as
landlord). Among them were numerous townlands in Aughnamullen parish (Latton, Munea, Dromod, Drumchanon, Maghon etc.).
Aughnamullen is some five miles east of Cootehill. It appears that Colburn was an absentee landlord (see article "An Impending
Eviction" below) having Irish homes at that time in North Dublin and Kildare. He later lived in London at 75 Radcliffe Gardens,
South Kensington (where his mother died in 1889) and he died a bachelor in Brussels.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------The following rather quaint Irish anecdote, concerning Colburn Mayne, is from "The History of the Latton O'Rahilly's Club &
Parish", edited by Seamus O'Draoda (late 20th century undated). Latton is a village 5 miles due east of Cootehill in Co.
Monaghan and was once part of Aughnamullen Parish.
AN IMPENDING EVICTION
[The distance from Munea to Dublin is over 60 miles. ]
"In the middle of the last century Colburn Mayne was the Landlord of many townlands, including Latton, Maghon, Drumchanon,
Dromod and Munea. Mayne was an absentee, who sometimes resided in Dublin or Kildare. In both these towns he had a private
residence. He amused himself by hunting with the hounds or shooting pheasants and mallards in the plains of Kildare or Dublin
and Wicklow hills and moors. Many times each week a moor cock or pheasant, with the help of a bottle of port, would grace the
table and whet the appetite of the landlord after a hectic day out hunting on the moors and glens.
In the townland of Munea dwelt a tenant of his by the name of Patrick McCabe, the great grandfather of Patsy McCabe. He paid
his rent regularly to the agent whom Mayne had appointed to collect the rents. But the agent was notable for having his 'pound of
flesh' and no excuses, so one morning an official looking document was delivered to Patrick McCabe's door-step. It was an
eviction notice. No one except the agent himself knew the reason why such an order was made.
Patrick decided that he would not quit. After some pondering he and a neighbour set out for Dublin early next morning when the
birds were just beginning to yawn. He hoped to locate the landlord Mayne and put his problem to him. They walked the entire
long tiring rocky road to Dublin with the exception of a short lift on a low-backed jaunting car driven by a generous farmer who
was delivering bags of cabbages to a country shop. On hearing of their trouble, he gave them a white head of cabbage to munch
on the way to Dublin. That kept the body and soul together until they reached Anna Liffey flowing murkily through the town.
What was troubling them can be easily imagined; were they on a 'wild goose chase' or would they succeed in their mission.

16

After making many exhaustive queries as to the address of their landlord, they arrived at his residence on the north side, totally
fatigued, but not drained of hope. Dogs barked as they walked weakly up the long drive towards the ivy-clad Georgian residence.
Luckily for them Colburn Mayne was at home. He listened intently to Patrick's tale of woe. He said nothing until they had
partaken of a hearty and well-deserved meal on which they inflicted full justice.
As it was now dark and late into the night, the landlord ordered his servants to find them shelter until next day. They slept
uneasily as they were still unaware of the landlord's decision. They only had to wait and hope.
Next morning they were overjoyed and grateful when he announced that he had decided to cancel the eviction order. He
moreover gave them sufficient cash to take them home in comfort. The McCabes are living happily in Munea and in better times
today. The humanity and friendliness of a landlord triumphed in those far off days."

WC MAYNE a great Australian pioneer and public servant


The younger brother of Edward by seven years, William Mayne was born in Wicklow, Ireland (other records
give Lattin, Co. Monaghan or Dublin as his birthplace). Feinaiglien School. Entered Trinity College, Dublin
1823: BA 1838. Army career (Ref. PRO WO25/785): Ensign in 5th of Foot (by purchase) 1825, Lieut.
1826, Capt. 1833-38, retired "for health reasons". He was told he had a weak chest and needed to live in a
warm climate. In 1831 he married in Scotland, Mary Ellen, daughter of Captain Thomas Turner, 17th
Lancers and Hales Hall, Staffordshire, by whom he had four surviving children born in Ireland, and seven
born in New South Wales, Australia, where the family emigrated. They arrived at Sydney on the "Hero of
Malown" in 1839. The change of climate clearly suited him as he sired eleven children and lived to age 94!
William went north acquiring Warialda station on the edge of New England where he ran some of the cattle
his brother, Edward, had purchased. With Charles Boydell he took up Gullandaddah, a big stretch of
country on the Melville Plains, selling it on at a profit in 1842. He appears to have been successful in
pastoral land speculation and at various times had interests in property on both sides of the Liverpool Range,
holding five stations in the Leichhardt District and two on Darling Downs across the Queensland border.
Eventually he moved back south to rent the Toongabbie estate near Sydney and in 1846 was made
commissioner for crown lands for the Wellington District. He took an interest in local Aborigines and, at his
suggestion, an area was reserved for them on the Barwon River where they had a permanent fishery. He also
tried but failed to obtain reserved hunting and fishing rights for them.
In 1850 William submitted a report to the NSW Legislative Council proposing that the police force be
remodelled on the lines of the Irish Constabulary. Most of his ideas were adopted and in 1852 he was
appointed Inspector-General of Police and as such an official of the Council. He was made Auditor-General
in 1856. William became the first Agent-General for NSW in London in 1864, and three years later was
head of the NSW Commission for the Paris Exhibition, which he of course attended. When in London, he
enlisted the help of Florence Nightingale in recruiting trained nurses for Sydney Hospital, where they
became the basis for the Colony's first nurses' training school. He became the representative of the
Donaldson Ministry in the Upper House, and eventually the sole surviving member of that Ministry to live
into the Federation.
Still noted for his remarkable memory, he retired to his home "Viewbank" in Burwood (corner of
Cheltenham and Queen Streets) where he died in 1902 aged 94. His wife Mary Ellen had died in 1884.

Death:

John Colburn Mayne was born at "Greendale", Camden, New South Wales, a property owned jointly by his grandfather, John
Thomas Colburn Mayne (1834-1924), and William Charles Wentworth. "Greendale" was sold to a William Matchett in 1928.
After working on sheep stations in the north-west of New South Wales, JC Mayne served in the Australian Field Artillery for
three and a half years during the First World War. After that he spent four years with his uncle John Thomas Colburn Mayne
(b.1862) working on his property Kinbombi, Goomeri. He then spent six years at Goonuloom at Goomeri during which he married
his first wife Catherine McDiarmid by whom he had four sons, Gerald, John, Douglas and Malcolm Colburn Mayne.

21

He then engaged in orcharding, dairying and grazing and eventually bought his own property Greenlake, Rossmoya,
Rockhampton, where the family lived for ten years. They left Greenlake on purchasing Wealwandangie, Springsure, in
Queensland where he lived for 24 years before retiring to Brisbane. Wealwandangie he sold to his son John and his wife Dell.
Catherine died in 1955 and in 1966 he married Minnie Wearne, the granddaughter of a pioneering family in south-west
Queensland. In 1969 they moved to Banora Point, New South Wales.
In 1974, JC Mayne wrote that "the pioneering spirit and love of the land is firmly entrenched in the present generations of this
branch of the Mayne family. My four sons are all actively engaged in pastoral pursuits in Central Queensland as are my seven
grandsons Jack, Max, Kim, Peter, Philip, Raymond and Bruce2.
JC Mayne died at his home 180 Rowbotham Street, Toowoomba, shortly after his 105th birthday. He formerly lived at
Wealwandangie, Springsure, and in 1974, when he compiled the family descent from his great grandfather Captain William
Colburn Mayne, he was living at Banora Point in New South Wales.

"Edward Mayne was in Queensland in partnership with Edward McCartney and was at one time amongst the biggest land holders
in the State. However they lost all their possessions in the drought of 1902. Their properties included Diamantina Lakes,
Auvergne in the Northern Territory, and Waverley, which is some 80 miles north of Rockhampton [Queensland], where Edward
Mayne lived. Being before the days of the Northern Railway, Edward used to ride into Rockhampton, transact his business, and be
back at home at Waverley the following night by having several relays of horses along the route" (from notes dated 1974 left by
John Colburn Mayne 1895-2000).
It is thought that Edward returned to England (from Dell Mayne's notes).

Dorothea Harden with her daughter.

Glenlyon: the Harden homestead.

Dorothea Colburn Mayne was born in NSW and married Henry Scott Harden, a grazier, in England in 1866 when she was 20 and
he 32. He had been born in Ghent, Belgium, the youngest of seven children of a family which is thought to descend from the
Hardens of Ireland. It is said that Dorothea met Henry in Paris and that they eloped when her family disapproved of him.
In 1871 Henry Harden met a distant cousin, William Henry Walker, at Toowoomba in Queensland. William, who had been
educated in Scotland, had been working with his brother Thomas on a station at Gracemere, Rockhampton, where he had sold
some sheep and was looking to purchase a property of his own. He and Henry Harden together then bought the Glenlyon station at
Pikes Creek on the Severn River near the town of Stanthorpe in the Darling Downs, southern Queensland, financed by a relation
of William's, JT Walker who was a bank manager at Toowoomba. Glenlyon, at that time, extended to about 110,000 acres and had
permanent water. Henry, who was the senior partner, reported that they "improved the sheep considerably and repeatedly got the
highest average price for the clip obtained by any Queensland station".

Glenlyon Station, at Pikes Creek on the Severn River, the home of Henry & Dorothea Harden from 1871-79
(painted by James G Sawkins 1852-3 Mitchell Library)
Henry died of tuberculosis in 1879 at Petrie's Bight, Queensland, after which Dora, with the help of her brother Edward (his
executor) sold off Henrys share of Glenlyon to his partner William H Walker and moved to a small property at Armidale, NSW,
to provide for the education of her younger children. Later she moved to Sydney where she suffered a stroke caused when she
heard the news of her son Williams death in 1916 while serving with the 1 st AIF during the First World War. She remained an
invalid for the next six years, dying in 1922.

30

Henry & Dorothea's children were:- Marion (who married Rev. William Kemmis), Dora, Eva, Henry, William (who has five great
grandchildren: Michele, Christopher, Anthony, Craig & Jennifer Mayne Harden), Ethel, Alan & Kathleen Harden (who married
REC Scott in 1908 and had two sons, Alan & Robert Scott).
Of the three Harden sons, William was killed in the First World War 1916, Henry died in Queensland in 1921, and Alan, the
youngest, who served in the Boer War, went from South Africa to the USA where he died in 1932.

MEMORIES BY CAPTAIN ROBERT MAYNE OF THE HOUSE IN DUBLIN


OWNED BY HIS FATHER IN WHICH HE WAS BROUGHT UP circa 1825-38
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------This description of Platanus, Sussex Road, Off Lower Leeson Street, Dublin, written in 1903 by old Robert Mayne 1821-1905 at
his home in Vellore, South India, is from a letter to his daughter-in-law Mary Emily Mayne ne Caldwell. The property no longer
exists.
"I was born at a place where we were named Platenous (sic), within a mile of Dublin - the best house we ever were in - four
storeys high enclosed with a wall all round with about three acres of grass enclosed with wooden railings. At the bottom,
separated from this land, was a very nice large garden, part of which was a flower garden with a summer house in it and the
remainder was a vegetable garden with fine long asparagus beds, the walls having peach, nectarines, cherry trees nailed to the
them, gooseberry bushes, black, white and red current trees, not nailed to the wall but standing separately, beautiful peach apple
trees and other kinds of apple trees. There were fine walks down from the house at each side of the grass field and a river running
through the lower part of the garden.
The house had front and back yards. The front yard had a large coach house, a horse stable for six horses, a cow house, a milk
house, a large place in which my father (Captain John Mayne) had very large boxes containing oats for horses, a dustbin, a latrine
for servants and a large gate through which on opening the carriage and horses or riding horses could be taken. The loft over the
stables was capable of holding 5 or 6 large bandies of hay.
On entering the front door from the road you went up steps into a great stone-flagged hall, from which you went into another hall,
boarded, and on the right hand was my father's study, nicely furnished and with three large windows. Beyond the second hall to
the right was a splendid parlour nicely furnished with a fire place and two windows looking out to the grass field. Coming out of
the parlour about six yards across the inner hall was another smaller hall in which the clock etc. was; and on the left hand a door
with a flight of stairs went up to a big room, the school room, below which was my mother's store room. Beyond was a very
grand broad stair case with banisters leading you up to a landing on which was a window looking out at the shrubbery. A second
flight of stairs led you up to a spacious drawing room on the left, and another door leading into the bedroom in which I and my
brother John used to sleep. Beyond was another bedroom occupied by my father and mother.
Outside our bedroom there were two further flights of stairs, with a window looking into the grounds, leading to three large
bedrooms. Finally some narrow stairs brought you to the top of the house where there was a room in which my mother used to
keep all the apples.
Returning down the 4 or 5 flight of stairs to the ground floor there was a small landing place from which a few steps took you
down to a door opening out to the Avenue. Stairs from this landing brought you down into a large kitchen off which was the
larder where all the meat etc. was kept. On the other side of the kitchen was the back kitchen with a big mangle and other
furniture, and beyond that was the butler's pantry where all glasses, dishes etc. were kept, the scullery where the maid washed the
dishes, and rooms for the butler, coachman and grooms to sleep in.
There was also a huge coal hole in which my father used to lay in 60 bandies, 60 tons of coal, for the winter. From there stone
steps took you up to a room where the women servants, ladies' maid, house maid and cook, used to sleep, from which there was
access into the front yard.

33

It was one of the most complete, spacious and nicest houses and grounds you could wish to have. It was fully furnished and my
father used to pay 300 a year for it. He took it for a month but liked it so much that he remained 13 years in it. Before leaving
he gave the landlord a month's notice. The landlord demanded six month's notice and they went to law. It was decided against
my father saying that after he had taken it for one month he then became a yearly tenant and the landlord was entitled to six
month's notice or half a year's rent. My father paid the 150. In the meantime we had gone to a house in Booterstown because the
neighbourhood was beginning to get houses all built about."

Mary Emily Mayne ne Caldwell was born in South India, probably at "Roslyn", Kodaikanal, a hill station in the Palani Hills of
Madras State (now Tamil Nadu), which was her father's house, and where she died. She was the youngest daughter of Robert
Caldwell, missionary bishop of South India, and Eliza ne Mault. An article about them entitled: FAITH AND FAMILY IN
SOUTH INDIA is at: http://books.google.co.uk/books?id=2_ZstVBZSfIC&lpg=PP1&pg=PA148#v=onepage&q&f=true . And a
biography of Bishop Robert Caldwell is at: http://www.britishempire.co.uk/biography/robertcaldwell.htm .
Mary died of cancer at Kodaikanal after a long illness during which she was nursed by Roman Catholic nuns. As a result she
became a Catholic before she died. She was buried at her home at Kodaikanal and not alongside her parents who lie in the church
the Bishop built at Edeyengudi, near Cape Cormorin, the southernmost tip of South India.

with Robert Maunsell & Helen Elizabeth Mary in 1896.

Mary Emily (in white) with her mother, Eliza


Caldwell, on the steps of Roslyn, Kodaikanal

Mary Mayne's younger daughter, Dorothea, remembers her as a very strong character, totally unafraid of approaching strangers.
Mary was the seventh child of a seventh child and was well known for her psychic powers! Because of the effect on her, her
husband used to forbid her taking part in sances. Each time she went to London something exciting seemed to happen to her. On
losing her purse in Harrods one day she went up to see one of the directors and borrowed five pounds from him!
She was a strong supporter of the suffragette movement and took part in a march when some of the women were arrested. In
contrast her husband Bobby was a rather dour man but with a dry sense of humour.
Mary Mayne's home in England when the children were nearby at school was at Manningford, Bolebrooke Road, Bexhill, Sussex.
Her home in India where she died was at Roslyn, Kodaikanal, Palani Hills, South India.

In 1755 Dorothea Mayne married her first cousin CHARLES MAYNE 1727-77 (See 1.1.5.5 for other details). Charles effectively
became head of the family from his home at Cootehill . They were said by a visitor to have had ten children: we identified only 7.

41

Freame Mount, Cootehill, built by Charles Mayne in 1772.


Charles named "Freame Mount" after his cousin, neighbour and benefactor Thomas Dawson, whose new wife was Philadelphia
Hannah Freame. Freame Mount became the hub of a dynasty - Charles' two older sons, Edward and William, fathered some 27
children. (see also Charles & Dorothea Mayne at 1.1.4.3 and 1.1.5.5 above).

Thomas Dawson and his second wife Philadelphia Hannah Freame (1741-1826).
She was named after the town in which she was born and like her grandfather, William Penn, was a Quaker. It is a Quaker cap she
is wearing. The story of why Thomas Dawson, later Viscount Cremorne, and his second wife, Philadelphia Freame left their home
at Dartrey to end up in England at Stoke Poges is told in the article The Mystery of Plot 118.

Part of Thomas Dawsons DARTREY ESTATE, once one of the most beautiful properties in all Ireland,
which can be viewed from Charles Maynes Freame Mount. Today Dartrey is entirely given over to forestry.
An illustrated article about the estate, its history and the neighbouring town of Cootehill, is at DARTREY .

42

The Mayne family living around Cootehill in 1773.


During 1773 a long visit was made to the Cootehill area by an English cleric, Rev. Dr. J. Burrows, who stayed with Thomas
Dawson and his new wife, Hannah Freame (portrait on previous page), on the Dartrey estate. Burrow's diary entries for that year
provide his unvarnished views of the situations and people he met. Of the Maynes he wrote the following:
Charles Mayne (aged 46). "Head of the family, the father of ten children, and builder of a new house, which makes a fine object
in the country wherever it is seen." Of Charles' four brothers, who lived nearby "dispersed upon four eminences in the
neighbourhood", some of his views are less than charitable! Extracts are quoted below as well as repeated in the Notes on the
individual brother concerned :Rev. Dr. Edward Mayne DD (aged 59). "They say he is a good natured bachelor, and an unpreferred curate at 60, which is
neither of them circumstances to liberalize or sweeten a man's temper!"
John Mayne (aged 56). "He is far from agreeable, and I cannot help pronouncing him a ruined man. I saw his Bleaching Yard
...... suffice it to say that all the evils you complain of in your linen are owing to the ignorance or fraud of the whitster; Mr Mayne
is a very great concern and I hardly think he has abilities to carry it on with success. Many people have thought otherwise who
have trusted him with large sums."
Richard Mayne (aged 54). "He of all that family is my favourite for his sentiments and behaviour .... He is the only yeoman I
have met with in all this country in his character and circumstances". His wife (Alice Young from Killeshandra) "is dirty beyond
description and doctors the poor people with amazing courage and, as they say, success. In the meantime some languish and
others die under her hands, but that may be owing to their obstinacy."
Robert Mayne (aged 42). "Late Captain of Marines, he is very cheerful, easy and agreeable." ... "A lively and good natured
Agent" ... "His wife (Jane Draycott) is too lifeless for me."

On the death of his father in 1777, Edward, the eldest son, was already busy in Dublin, and later London, in pursuing a career in
the law. He therefore had handed over his responsibilities for the family estate at Freame Mount to his younger brother William,
providing him with legal and other advice from Dublin where Edward brought up a large family. His wife bore him 13 children of
whom 12 survived to be adults. His addresses in Dublin were :1793-1800: Dawson Street
1805-1820: 28 Stephens Green North (picture below)

As a Judge, Edward was described as being of "the sapient, soft and melancholy strain", yet a list of the sentences he passed in
1815 (listed at The Old Court House, Downpatrick Museum) included quite a few death sentences - one for stealing a horse. He
took no part in politics. Resigned 1820 due to ill-health. Lived in Dublin as above.

John Dawson Mayne was a wealthy lawyer who married twice but had no children. In his later years after his return to England
from India in 1873 he looked after the interests of the Mayne family in England. He provided them with free legal advice and
support and on occasion financial help. Dorothea Pinder, ne Mayne, remembers Cousin John (or "JD") in about 1904 lending her
mother 100 when funds from her husband in Madras failed to come through. This had resulted from "the failure of Arbuthnots
Bank in Madras which had left many families penniless and the London director of the Bank (McFadyean) jumped to his death in
front of a tube train"!
JD Mayne's Career
In India JD's name had become well known as the ICS Judge who had written the first 'Indian Penal Code' which was
subsequently expanded by Coutts-Trotter. He had also left India in a hurry having run off with another man's beautiful wife - who
he subsequently married. Her beauty was marred only by what in Victorian times was called 'a Port wine mark' on one side of her
face i.e. a birth mark, which in later life caused her to favour veils.

Mayne Genealogy
JD became the family genealogist and is reputed to have compiled the large Mayne pedigree in about 1900. Unfortunately it is still
circulating. A note by HC Barnard of Somerset on his own 1922 pedigree of a branch of the Scottish Maynes uses, and attributes
to JD, its four earliest generations going back to AD 878. These generations are in the monster Mayne pedigree, proving that it
was indeed JD's work.
In it he has linked almost all historically well-known Mayne branches together. That is, he connects his Irish family with the
Bucks, Herts and Warwickshire lines, and together links all of them to the ancient and wealthy Kent family of the Middle Ages,
and thence right back to 9th century Normandy.
Sad to say, all attempts to validate JD's monster pedigree beyond 17th century Ireland have failed. It is also clear that some of the
earlier component parts of the monster do not hang together. [We conclude that 'JD' like another high flying lawyer, John Thomas
Mayne of Teffont, Wiltshire, had delusions of grandeur! See the article "A Mild Deception"]
JD printed and used as his own the Arms carved on the Mayne family memorial at Dartrey Church, Cootehill in Ireland (see the
photo picture above, and the Notes on Robert Mayne 1679-1753 about the memorial).

"Goodrest" was John Dawson & Annie Maynes home from about 1877.
In England Judge John Dawson Mayne and his second wife lived at Shinfield near Reading, Berkshire, in a converted 17th
century ornamental Gothic mansion (built in 1630 by Sir Francis Englefield) called "Goodrest" which JD acquired around 187780. The house was so named because, during the Civil War, it was where in 1643 an exhausted Cromwell stayed after the battle of
Newbury. JD and Annie Katherine were there at the 1881 Census together with a cook, parlour maid and housemaid.
The estate is also known by its original name, Shinfield Park, and in the map of 1882 the size of the gardens and orchards to the
south of the house is said to have required about 20 gardeners. Since JD's time the north-west half of the grounds were sold off for
housing which necessitated the filling in of a lake. The remainder of the estate is now a school (Crosfields School, part of the
Leighton Park Trust).
JD and his wife died at "Goodrest" in 1917 within six weeks of each other and are buried in Shinfield cemetery, 200 yards from St
Mary's church.
Postscript
On a visit made in 1984 to Shinfield and Crosfield School, we spoke to an elderly resident Jack Spink who told of an even older
local woman who had just died and had worked at "Goodrest" in JD's time. Jack remembered the deceased saying that the old
couple (JD and his wife) were fairly reclusive and the Judge's wife always wore a veil (the Port wine mark?) and that they were
very security conscious. They used to insist that the doors were unlocked and then locked again as visitors went through the house
(an Indian view of the threat of theft perhaps?).

man's wife (who not only was about 8 years older than Helen but also had a disfiguring birth mark on the side of her face).
Douglas Hamilton & the Panoramas
Among the witnesses at Helen Hamilton's wedding at Madras in 1859 was a Douglas Hamilton. This is almost certainly Lt Col
Douglas Hamilton (1818-92), the youngest of three brothers, children of Charles and Sarah Hamilton of Sudbury Grove,
Middlesex, and Kensworth House, Herts.
Douglas served with the 21st Native Infantry, Madras Army throughout his time in India 1837-71. Forest conservation became
one of his major concerns and from 1854-60 he helped organise and later directed an experimental conservancy in the Anaimalai
Hills. This was the origin of what became the Forestry Department of South India.
In 1861 he was given a roving commission by Sir Charles Trevelyan to make drawings for the Government of all the hill plateaux
in South India which were suitable for sanatoria or quarters for European troops. He produced a series of five sets of pen and ink
drawings and reports between 1861-63. This family link to the Hamiltons accounts for the large number of Douglas' framed
panoramas being currently in the possession of descendants of this branch of the Mayne family.

"SPENDING MORE TIME WITH THE FAMILY"


Biographical notes on Edward Gibson, First Lord Ashbourne (1837-1913) by DG

Edward Gibson was a Dublin Barrister who became the first Lord Ashbourne in 1885 following his appointment as Lord
Chancellor of Ireland with a seat in the Conservative Cabinet.
Despite childish ill health from the age of 11 or 12, resulting in long absence from school, he had a "highly successful" time at
University (Trinity College, Dublin - a 'First' in History. Political Science & English Lit). It was probably due to his father, a very
wealthy Dublin solicitor with connections in the Inland Revenue that Edward chose initially to follow a career in the law. But his
legal links were greatly strengthened when in 1868 he married Frances Maria Adelaide Colles, both of whose parents came from
large families (Colles and Mayne) full of lawyers, many of them still practising in Dublin. His grandmother was Elizabeth Mary
Mayne, whose brothers, father John Mayne and grandfather Judge Edward Mayne had all been barristers.
Apart from his cleverness, Gibson's other main talent, shared by many an Irishman, was his ability to move an audience with his
oratory. With this powerful combination and a private income (from his father), he had the freedom to please himself. His start on
a legal career was unremarkable. He was called to the Irish Bar in 1860 and became a QC (Queen's Counsel) in 1872. However,
during this period while travelling on the Leinster circuit he had been a Conservative political organiser and in 1874 he fought his
first election for Waterford City - and lost. The following year he contested the by-election at Trinity College, Dublin, and was
returned. Thus he found himself sitting in the Westminster parliament in London where Disraeli's Conservative government
formed in 1874 had other interests apart from Ireland. Gibson was a strong supporter of Disraeli who used him and his oratory
with success in maintaining an Irish policy of inactivity - even after the situation there deteriorated after 1877. That year he was
made Attorney General for Ireland and for the next three years used that minor legal office to increase his influence in Irish
affairs. He remained fully committed to politics despite being offered a Judgeship in the Irish Court of Appeal in 1878. It was said
that he turned down a similar offer in 1880.
Disraeli lost the 1880 general election to Gladstone's Liberals. From that time Ireland became once more a contentious political
issue with Disraeli trying to find Irish policies on which to divide and destroy the 120 seat Liberal majority. Gibson had the role of
making vigorous partisan speeches on the Irish question in the House of Commons on Disraeli's behalf. He particularly enjoyed
his intimacy with the great man until Disraeli's death in April 1881, and Gibson left verbatim accounts of their meetings.
There followed a struggle for power in the Conservative party between Lord Salisbury, Randolph Churchill and Sir Stafford
Northcote. Gibson supported Northcote. When Salisbury finally won out in 1884, he needed Northcote's supporters to protect him
against Churchill - whose intrigues continued for two years! Gibson was especially valuable as he was the only prominent
Conservative able to eclipse Churchill in debate.
When the Conservatives were returned to office in 1885, Salisbury offered Gibson the post of Home Secretary. Surprisingly he
refused this, one of the three highest political appointments in the land. It seems he preferred the financial security of a pension for
life awarded to the Irish Chancellor, which he became in 1885. For a patently ambitious and already wealthy politician with no
apparent aspirations in the law, this was an odd decision. It appears that there were family reasons. He and his wife, Frances, had
eight children, the youngest of whom, Constance (his favourite) wrote later that he had accepted to become Chancellor to "be
better able to provide for his children", although he would much more have enjoyed remaining in the Commons.
So, in 1885, Gibson found himself in the House of Lords as Lord Ashbourne, Chancellor of Ireland, with a seat in the Cabinet. In
July he drafted his famous Irish Land Purchase Act almost single-handed, and earned great acclaim for it. But there then followed
a sea-change in his political fortunes. By January 1886 "he was by a long way the most unpopular man in the party" due to his
allegiance to Irish Home Rule (probably untrue) at a time when his party were driving for Unionism and pressing for strong
measures. Despite efforts to restate his support for Unionism, he failed to provide the evidence of Irish lawlessness that was
needed to suppress the National League, and failed dismally to restore his own prestige. Within months (Jan. 1886), the
government had to resign to a chorus of complaints about Ashbourne's incompetence. Thereafter, although his seat in the Cabinet
survived, mainly due to political forces outside his control, he never again carried any political weight and drifted into
comparative obscurity.
In hindsight it seems that just as this able man, aged only 48, was within reach of the pinnacles of political power, he was
overcome by a sense of family obligation. He was always devoted to his wife and children, and even at the height of his fame in
the early 1880s he was seldom seen in Conservative society and his colleagues hardly knew him in private life. But now, as
Chancellor, he began spending even more time with the family, sometimes to the detriment of his political duties. He had acquired
the "Chateau de la Cocherie" at Boulogne on long lease and there the family began to meet with increasing regularity. This second
half of his political career could hardly have been more dissimilar to the first. His colleagues had difficulty in remembering that
the brilliant Mr Gibson, the authority on Irish affairs, and the stolid Lord Ashbourne were one and the same person.

53

In his last years he stood out as a venerable relic from the past, linking the world of Disraeli to the very different one of Bonar
Law. For 20 years he was one of the most dispensable of ministers in the Tory government, valued chiefly for his comments on
the small print of legislation, and for occasional speeches in the Lords. He never retired and died in 1913 aged 76.

Sir Richard Mayne KCB, c.1868, the year of his death

Richard Mayne was born in Dublin, the fourth son of an Irish Judge. He was educated at Trinity College, Dublin and Trinity
College Cambridge, Lincoln's Inn and was called to the Bar in 1822.
After seven years as a Barrister on the English Northern Circuit he was selected as one of two joint Commissioners of the
(London) Metropolitan Police on its first formation in 1829. He and his co-founder, Colonel Charles Rowan, had to introduce a
new concept of policing and to recruit, organise and train the force against considerable opposition.
Mayne was commended for his policing of the Chartist riots of 1848, the Great Exhibition of 1851 when he was made KCB, and
the Hyde Perk Riots of 1867. He became sole Commissioner in 1850 and remained so until his death in 1868. Mayne had served
as founding Commissioner of the Met for almost 40 years. He lived at 80 Chester Square, London. Read a short biography A
Policemans Lot in which he is compared with two modern holders of this important post.

WILLIAM MAYNE 1758-1817
A diligent and pious man, William lived at Freame Mount, Cootehill, taking over the mantle of his father Charles, lavishing time
and effort on the estate and the family. Meanwhile his elder brother, Edward, became a barrister in Dublin and in due course a
judge. Apart from his concern for his own family and its land, William also acted as Agent for the Barrett-Lennard estates (Estate
papers are at the Essex Record Office, Chelmsford).
Isabella Ellis, William's first wife, died in 1795 and he married in 1800 Harriet Rochfort (1780-1855). He fathered some 14
children and probably brought up others at Freame Mount (see Henry Mayne, Army Quartermaster). William was a Land Agent,
Justice of the Peace and in 1802 was appointed High Sheriff for County Monaghan.
One of William's legacies at Freame Mount was the many trees that he planted including a host of oaks. Unfortunately only one of
his oak trees has survived the 200 years since they were planted (now known as "William's oak"). This was due not to the ravages
of time but because the others were all felled by a 20th century owner who was in urgent need of cash.

William married Frances, the daughter of Rev. William Annesley, Rector of Ematris (Dartrey), in 1820. The wedding was
attended by Captain John Mayne, his son Edward Colburn Mayne and William's half brother Richard of Glynch House, Newbliss.
William and Frances had nine children and lived at Freame Mount for a period (Pigot's & Slater's Directories show him living
there 1824, 1846) but he worked in Dublin where Directories show he was at:1815-20: Dane Street
1830-32: 65 Eccles Street (when he was Assistant Barrister for Co. Westmeath).
1840: 41 French Street (when he was Assistant Barrister for Co. Mayo).
He and Frances also lived at Templeogue House, Co. Dublin. William's Will was dated 1838 when he was living at Templeogue,
at which time he was about to buy back the lease of Freame Mount from his half brother, Richard of Glynch House. William died

one of whom was born every year between 1821and 1829. All but one of their five daughters was given their mother's name Annesley. (It is possible that Frances Mayne and her father William Annesley are related to the family of William Annesley, the
first Viscount who died in 1770, but this remains unconfirmed).

Harriet Rochfort

HARRIET MAYNE ne ROCHFORT 1780-1855


Second wife of William Mayne of Freame Mount. She married him in 1800 and bore him nine surviving children. Of her sons,
Richard became a local land agent, John a lawyer, Francis the manager of the Westenra Hotel, and Thomas the governor of
Monaghan prison. She had at least 27 grandchildren.
Harriet was the daughter of Rowland Rochfort of Streamstown and Westmeath (nephew of the 1st Earl of Belvedere in Harriets
death notice). Rowland was an army officer who was killed in a duel with a Colonel Despard. Despard had sworn against the King
(George III), whereupon Rochfort challenged him, with sad results. Happily the King granted Rowlands widow a pension!
The Rochforts were well known for their tendency to be quarrelsome, excessively acquisitive and given to going to law generally without success. The largest constructed ruin in Ireland is a huge wall built in about 1760 at Belvedere, Westmeath, by
Harriet's great uncle so that he didn't have to look at her grandfather's (his younger brother's) larger house a quarter of a mile
away! Her grandfather was Arthur Rochfort, MP for Westmeath, who had been sued by his brother for criminal conspiracy with
intent to seduce his brother's wife, and had to pay 20,000 damages.
The Rochforts were among the many descendants of King Edward III according to "Plantagenet Roll - Essex" by Ruvigny (pp.
206-209).

RICHARD MAYNE 1800-76
The oldest of nine surviving children of William Mayne of Freame Mount and his second wife, Harriet daughter of Rowland
Rochfort of Westmeath. Richard also had four half-brothers and a half-sister by his father's first marriage.
He was at various times land agent for Lord Cremorne (Richard Dawson of Dartrey), for Dawson Richard Coote, and latterly
(1865) for Mrs Hope at Castleblayney (the assistance he gave his tenants during the potato famine is quoted in "The Anglo-Celt"
of 23 Feb 1849 - See second Letter below). At the time of his half brother, William's death in 1847, Richard was holding the lease
of Freame Mount.
In 1835 he married Louisa (1813-78), eldest daughter of Charles Coote, the niece of the 2nd Lord Cremorne, at a stroke allying
himself to the two largest landlords of the area, the Dawsons of Dartrey and the Cootes of Bellamont Forest.
Richard lived at Glynch House, Newbliss, Co. Monaghan, a classical villa with Grecian porch and Doric columns built during the
Napoleonic wars by Richard Morrison (See description of the house and area below).
He was a magistrate and grand juror for the County and was described in his obituary as "an ardent Conservative" (see his 1865
election letter immediately below). He never shrank from his duty, "whether as a magistrate, politician or as a private gentleman"
and at his death he had "secured the respect and friendship of the gentry of the County, as well as the esteem and good will of
those" who knew him as landlord and agent over many years.
Richard and Louisa retired to Kingstown, Dublin in about 1860 where they found a seafront house at 6/8 Martello Terrace
(Kingstown in republican Ireland is now called Dun Laoghaire - it is where the Dublin ferries arrive from England). Richard died
there in 1876 and his wife two years later.
-----------------------------A letter sent to each elector by Richard Mayne, Agency House, Castleblayney.
11 July 1865
"Mrs Hope has promised to vote for Sir George Forster and Colonel Leslie, and has directed me to notify such to her tenants, with
the request that you will do the same, and come forward like men and SUPPORT HER. I am QUITE CONFIDENT no tenant
under my charge will go against her wishes. THEY should recollect it is the only OPPORTUNITY they have of returning the
MANY kindnesses shown to them on all occasions. Vote for Mrs Hope, and ME as her agent. I WARN you against believing the
many stories so INDUSTRIOUSLY circulated contrary to this letter. I am your true friend."

Reply to a letter in the 'Clogher Record' about the Great Famine:"LANDLORD LIBERALITY" DURING THE GREAT FAMINE
------------------------------------------------------------------------------Landlords and their agents have had a bad press for their lack of sympathy for tenants in the dark days of the Great Famine, as
Neil McAtamney reminds us in his interesting article "The Great Famine in County Fermanagh" (Clogher Record 1994). He takes
a balanced view between on the one hand, reports in contemporary newspapers which were favourable to landowners and possibly
biased in that their readership was virtually confined to "well-to-do farmers, professionals and the landlord class" and, on the other
hand, oral history of landlord malevolence much of which is elaboration or just plain myth that has developed over the years.
Mr McAtamney quotes a journalist from The Impartial Reporter who wrote in 1975 that "Fermanagh landlords on the whole were
more compassionate and helped with efforts to alleviate distress". Whatever the truth of this assertion I would suggest, firstly, that
it would be very difficult for a landlord (unless he was an absentee with no interest in his possessions) and especially for his local
agent to stand aside from the desperate situation in which so many tenants found themselves during the famine. The capacity and
willingness to help may have varied, but it is difficult to believe in the indifference that is historically ascribed to local agents who
perforce were in the midst of the tenants and their suffering. Secondly, circumstantial evidence does exist to substantiate some of
the contemporary newspaper reports of humanitarian actions by landlords (not only in County Fermanagh).
I cite the example of Richard Mayne of Glynch House, Newbliss, Co. Monaghan who was agent for the Beehive property
(consisting of the large townlands of Carrickmacroman and Knockataggart, Laragh, Co. Cavan) owned by Dawson Richard Coote.
The Anglo-Celt of 23 February 1849 reported that:
"The property was divided into small farms of from one to ten acres each, and the
holders, through the famine distress, were unable to pay their rents. Richard
Mayne graciously forgave them every penny of arrears, clothed them, paid their
passage to America. And fed them during the voyage."
The report then went on to detail the names of each of the twenty tenants, the number in each family (77 souls in all) and the exact
size of each holding. The list of these names is given below. They may be of value to the genealogist but, more significantly,
such background detail supports the accuracy of this and similar contemporary accounts from Fermanagh and neighbouring
counties. No doubt the actions of Richard Mayne and agents like him can be misinterpreted but, in fairness, not all evidence of
"landlord liberality" towards their tenants should be discounted as journalistic bias, even though it contradicts the Irish oral
tradition which historians find so persuasive.

GLYNCH HOUSE, NEWBLISS, Co. MONAGHAN


-----------------------------------------------------------------Description of Glynch House in the 1980s to advertise the place to foreign visitors:In the ancient parish of Killeevan just outside the little Irish post-town of Newbliss stands Glynch House. An imposing residence,
it was built during the Napoleonic wars in the style of a classical villa with Grecian porch and Doric columns by that master
architect Richard Morrison. His genius has given Glynch a happy combination of spaciousness and style that visitors can enjoy
today.
The old Irish name for Newbliss means "nook of the oaks", and indeed Glynch has old oaks and beeches in profusion under which
the visitor can rest and enjoy the views across the lush meadows and streams of the Finn river. Here is tranquillity and inspiration
too as many writers, artists and musicians from all over the world have found nearby at the Annaghmakerrig Centre, the bequest
of the great impresario Sir Tyrone Guthrie.
The conflicts and loves of the past are also here to be found. This was MacMahon country and "The Annals of the Four Masters"
records their bloody wars with the Maguires and the O'Neills, and the many raths (ruined forts), which can still be seen today, are
further evidence of those turbulent times.
In the 17th century came the English and Scottish landlords, some of whose names are remembered still in Killeevan - Corry,
Nicholson, Stevenson, Ker, Rogers. They were in the main enlightened men who succeeded in producing much needed growth in
the local economy. Newbliss was established as a village by Robert Ker by about 1750, and by 1800 the linen trade was thriving
there.
The awful famine nearly fifty years later not only caused widespread distress and depopulation but started an economic decline
from which the parish has never really recovered. In that wretched time the owner of Glynch was one Richard Mayne, a land
agent. Richard, on finding that twenty of his tenants and their families (a total of 77 people) were in penury and unable to pay
their rents, "graciously forgave them every penny of arrears, clothed them, paid their passage to America and fed them during the
voyage". His generous spirit can still be felt at Glynch, not least in the welcoming figure of Martha O'Grady and her husband
John whose family has been settled in this beautiful place for half a century.

LOUISA MAYNE ne COOTE (1813-78)


Louisa was the eldest daughter of Charles Coote of Bellamont Forest, Cootehill, and Louisa Dawson (of Dawson's Grove,
Cootehill). The Coote's property, Bellamont Forest (its history and description is included below and here ), overlooks Dromore
Lough from the south - the opposite side to their neighbours the Dawsons of Dartrey.
Louisa, whose mother was Louisa Dawson (sister of Richard Dawson, the 2nd Lord Cremorne), had a foot in both camps as she
was of course brought up among the Cootes at Bellamont Forest. The Cootes and the Dawsons were the two largest landowners
around Cootehill and this made the union between Louisa and Richard especially propitious. The Maynes, mostly local land
agents and lawyers, provided the third side of the triangle, complementing the interests of these two great land owning families.
The Cootes as a family were nothing if not unconventional. Some of the Cootehill branch might better be described as eccentric even by the standards of the Irish ascendancy of those times! Maurice Craig in "Dublin 1660-1860" sees them as "a great and
eminently successful stock, military adventurers from Tyrone's wars onwards and premier baronets of England". Burke was more
blunt: he describes Charles Coote 1738-1800, 1st Earl of Bellamont, Louisa's grandfather, as "a somewhat absurd figure, ultra
sophisticated and ardently Francophile, he insisted on making his maiden speech in the Irish House of Lords in French! Pompous
and an inveterate womaniser". Reynold's in his portrait of him makes him look absurd. Charles Coote's Will indicates that he had
between 15 and 18 children of whom only five were by his wife, the rest being by four other women.
Louisa's father was one of the illegitimate ones but in 1800 he nevertheless inherited Bellamont Forest (although not the title); the
only legitimate heir had died travelling in France aged 12. In his youth Charles, the 1st Earl (Louisa's grandfather), fought a duel
with Marquess Townshend in which Charles received a serious bullet wound in the groin. This gave rise to much hilarity in view
of his reputation with the ladies! For all his "gallantry and high spirits" and "dazzling polish", he was also described as "that
madman!" A 1763 escapade of his in which he and a relation of Richard Mayne were accused of murder is described in the article
"Lieut. Edward Mayne, late of the 93rd Regiment, and the Oakboys of Ulster" pp. 9-10 (See Notes to Lieut Edward Mayne p.8)

The Palladian villa at BELLAMONT FOREST, Cootehill, Co. Monaghan, Ireland


The villa on the "Bellamont Forest" estate is said to be one of the purest examples of Palladio's art in the British Isles. It is about a
mile out of Cootehill in a prime position overlooking the Dromore Lough and other lakes amounting to some 500 acres of water.
The house is surrounded by its own estate, now of about 90 acres, which reaches back to the outskirts of the town, named after the
Coote family who arrived here in about 1660. The famous architect Edward Lovett Pearce built the house in 1730 for his uncle,
Thomas Coote, who (like Judge Edward Mayne a century later) had been a Justice of the King's Bench in Ireland 1693-1714. The
house was originally called "Coote Hill" but Thomas' eccentric grandson, Charles Coote 1738-1800, renamed it when he was
made Earl Bellamont in 1767. On his death the estate was inherited by his illegitimate son, another Charles, who was Louisa
Coote's father. Bellamont Forest was therefore home to Louisa until she married Richard Mayne in 1835. Her father died in 1842
and the estate then passed to his grandson, Captain Richard Coote. Richard sold Bellamont Forest in 1870 to an Irish family called
Dorman Smith and some of the Coote family emigrated to Australia.
The Dorman Smiths owned the property until 1981. One of them, Eric Dorman Smith, a lawyer and friend of Ernest Hemingway,
seems to have become quite as quixotic as some of the Cootes. Having been a soldier in the British Army during both World
Wars, he retired to Bellamont as a brigadier, and there had a change of heart. He took the name of O'Gowan (the Irish equivalent
of Smith), became a Catholic, sold lead from the roof for republican funds (from which the roof never recovered) and, it is said, he
allowed Irish terrorists (IRA) to carry out training on the Bellamont estate. For years he continued an acrimonious correspondence
with Winston Churchill over his dismissal that eventually went to court. When Eric O'Gowan died in about 1975 he was buried at
Dartrey church - so the Protestants got him in the end!

67

An English computer engineer and publisher, Bryan Mills, bought a very run down Bellamont from the O'Gowans. He completely
refurbished the house, but stayed only long enough to complete the major task of turning it into a comfortable residence by
modern standards. Then in 1987 there arrived a wealthy Australian interior designer, John Coote, a descendant of the family that
left Cootehill a century before, to purchase "his old family home". Although he kept Mills' modern systems, he spent more than
two years returned the house interior back to the original white formality of the 18th century, complete with period furniture. The
magnificent old house now stands in all its former glory - but sadly empty and unloved. Both Mills and now Coote were too busy
to live here and enjoy what they had created, so Bellamont is on the market once again. It is looking to come alive again as a
family home, as it once was when the gallant and high spirited Charles Coote, and later his granddaughter Louisa, lived here amid
the unchanging beauty of the forests and lakes of this beautiful part of old Ireland.

Sister of Charity Ward in 1879 and then in 1881 Senior Sister in charge of the whole paying block, St Thomas' Home. She worked
there until her death eight years later. Florence Nightingale herself gave the funeral address on 2 December 1890. In her notes for
that event she referred to Sister Mayne's devotion to duty despite the severity of her last illness - "she had extensive diseases, but
said hardly anything about it, and stood to her post like a brave soldier of Jesus Christ to the last month. She suffered fearfully"
without complaint.

HENRY MAYNE 1801-?60, Army Quartermaster


Born at Freame Mount on 23 July 1801 [parentage uncertain]. He became a soldier at 17, joining the 63rd Regiment of Foot as a
Private in 1818, rising through the ranks to become Quartermaster in 1837. He then transferred in that rank to the 49th Foot with
whom he served until 1854, a total of 36 years regular service, after which he joined the Worcester Militia, being promoted to
Paymaster the following year. His record of service shows that he was abroad almost continuously between 1827-43, a total of 16
years, in Portugal, Tasmania, India and the East Indies and China. He was Brigade Quartermaster to the Eastern Expeditionary
Force in the China War 1840-42, taking part in the battles at Canton, Chinghar, Chusan and Ninghor City in 1841, and in 1842 in
the night attack on Ninghor and the battles of Legorn, Chapon, Wooshing, Shanghai and Chungking under Hugh Gough. He
married Bridget Lyons at Castlebar, Ireland 1821 and they had six children, born in Ireland, Chatham, Tasmania, Calcutta. Bridget
died, probably in Calcutta, and he married Rebecca Yule in 1844, in which year she bore him a child in Winchester.
Family Origin.
There is a question mark over Henry Mayne's origins. His name and date/place of birth (23 July 1801, Freame Mount, Co.
Monaghan) was picked up from British Army records [PRO (Kew) Ref: WO76/493 Folio 8], although no birth record was found
for him in Ematris parish (Freame Mount).
William Mayne (1758-1817) of Freame Mount already had five children by his first wife who died 1795. He then married again in
Feb. 1800 and his second wife bore their sons Richard in Nov. 1800 and John Rochfort who was baptised Jan. 1802 (birth
presumed Dec. 1801). Henry (born July 1801) could therefore not be the child of William's second wife and has been noted as
"illegitimate" and was possibly adopted by William.
That he joined the Army as a private soldier the day after his 17th birthday suggests that he received less privileged treatment than
other sons of the family who might have enlisted with a Cornet's commission (many of them were put through King's Inns,
apprenticed to members of the family, to become lawyers). On the other hand Henry may just have had an independent spirit and
was keen to leave the family at the earliest possible moment! His distinguished career in the Army showed that he lacked nothing
of the family's talent in achieving professional advancement.
Who was Henry's father? William, who brought him up at Freame Mount, probably adopted him as an illegitimate child of the
family. Henry named his firstborn 'William' in 1823. If William was not his father, there are eleven other paternal candidates in
family 'Mayne' from among William's generation and their sons. They are listed below in groups of brothers, giving their age in
the year 1800 :Age in 1800
56 John Sedborough (1744-1837) married his cousin.
52 Edward (1748-1833) married his cousin in 1771
? William married Eliz. Rayner ca 1790
33 Jeremiah, Lieut RM (1767-1804).
52 Robert and his children :24 Sedborough (1776-1829) Dublin barrister, married 1802, and
22 James. Dublin barrister 1794.
44 Edward (the Judge), and his son-in-law :28 Capt. John Mayne, married in 1800.
42 William of Freame Mount who brought Henry up there.
31 John (1769-1835) married Charlotte Ellis in 1801
18 Charles, married Mary Dickinson in 1803.
Of these the favourite candidate for Henry's father is the Marine officer, Jeremiah Mayne who died three years after Henry's birth.
In that year, 1804, the adoption by William at Freame Mount of a child of his dead bachelor first cousin, Jeremiah, would seem
natural family charity.

Bridget Lyons
Church of England

Bridget was the daughter of Andrew Lyons (probably from Castlebar, Co. Mayo, Ireland, because that is where she and Henry
were married in 1821). Her first child was born in 1823 at "Tullymore" (possibly Tullamore in Co. Offaly, Ireland) which suggests
that her husband's early service with 63rd Regiment of Foot was in Ireland. Henry served abroad from 1827-43 and this is
reflected in the places where their subsequent children were born :1828 Chatham, England (probably their base as they were there again in 1837).
1830 Vandiemensland (Tasmania, Australia)
1833 Vandiemansland

1837 Chatham, England.


1840 Calcutta, India.
It appears that Bridget died in or before 1843 and the probability is that this happened in India from where he returned to England
in 1843. He remarried in January 1844 and there was a child born:1844 Winchester, England.

At the Mayne vault at Dartrey (Ematris Parish) is a memorial stone having at the top the Arms of Mayne, beneath which is a Latin
inscription with some details of the family and who is buried there.
ARMS
The shield consists of a bend with three dexter hands, couped at the wrist, on a field of ermine, with the motto "MANUS JUSTA
DECUS" (liberally translated as "A just hand is an adornment"). The crest is a bent arm in armour holding an arrow :-

LATIN INSCRIPTION
The translation of the Latin inscription, which appears to have been engraved on two occasions, first in 1773 and then in 1825,
reads as written below. It is almost certain that the initiator in 1773 was the effective head of the family then in residence, Charles
Mayne 1727-77 (he had just built his house, Freame Mount the previous year). The addition in 1825 of three sentences about
William Mayne of Freame Mount 1758-1817 and his first wife Isabella and their children can only have been cut by their eldest
and surviving son, William Mayne 1789-1847.
"Here lies the mortal remains of ANNE MAYNE, and also of MARGARET PEARCE one of the daughters of RICHARD
DAWSON, Esq of this County, and also of REBECCA, the only daughter of the same MARGARET, who was married to
ROBERT MAYNE of distinguished birth at Creslow, Bucks, England. He was outstanding in carrying out his Christian duty
both as a parent and a husband, and they gave to their last County six sons and one daughter. 1773".
"Here also are buried the mortal remains of WILLIAM MAYNE and his wife ISABELLA. She died in 1795 and he in 1817. They
had nine children of whom one son is surviving today in 1825".

COMMENT
There are many different Mayne Arms. The one found at Dartrey has the same 'shield' as the Arms of the Maynes of Creslow
(granted 1604) and of Dinton (granted before 1628) in Buckinghamshire. However the 'crest' of both Creslow and Dinton (dexter
hand between two wings) is quite different from Dartrey, and nor is the Dartrey motto found elsewhere.
The Arms were engraved in 1773 by Charles Mayne, and this was some twenty years after the death of Robert Mayne, whose
origin he gave as Buckinghamshire in the inscription. The shield, but not the crest, is consistent with some Buckinghamshire
connection for Robert but none has been found there. Surely Robert as a younger son of John and Anne Mayne of Mount
Sedborough, came from there and was not "of distinguished birth at Creslow." Is this English link fact or manufacture?

REBECCA MAYNE of Dromore Lodge


Rebecca was the daughter of Rev. Edward PEARCE. Her mother was Margaret DAWSON, the daughter of Richard Dawson of
Dawson's Grove, Cootehill, Co. Monaghan. Richard Dawson, who was said to have been an officer in Cromwell's Army, in 19
Charles II = 1667 was granted these lands in Co. Monaghan, that later became known as the Dartrey estate. The Dawson family
flourished in Co. Monaghan. Richard's great grandson became the 1st Baron Dartrey (1770) and Viscount Cremorne (1785).
On 7th Jan 1718 Robert Mayne married Rebecca Pearce of Dawson's Grove (two miles from Dromore), which residence stood on
the banks of that chain of beautiful lakes which lies north and east of Cootehill and divides Counties Monaghan and Cavan.
"Lodge's Peerage" says that Richard Dawson, her grandfather, had been an officer in Cromwell's Army, but there is no evidence
for this. EP Shirley, the historian, considers it likely that Dawson was one of many successful speculators in Irish lands at this
period who bought up property allotted to Cromwellian soldiers, the land having previously been forfeited by "Irish Papists".
Rebecca's grandfather had thus became the owner of over 4000 acres of land in Co. Monaghan in 1667, most of it in what is now
Ematris Parish, and the Dawson family became the most powerful landowners in the Cootehill area for the next 280 years. Their
neighbours, the various Mayne families living nearby descended from Robert of Dromore and his brother Edward Mayne,
benefited greatly from the close association over the 150 years before they moved away.

The DAWSON ESTATE AND DARTREY CASTLE

View of part of the Dartrey estate and Inner Lough seen from
30 foot up on the roof of the temple erected on Black Island
in the 1770s by Thomas Dawson, then owner of the estate.
Rebecca Mayne was brought up at Dawson's Grove, the estate of Richard Dawson, one of the great 17th century landowners of
the Cootehill area. From her home at Dromore, Rebecca overlooked the rolling fields, woods and lakes of Dawson's Grove. The
Dawson family retained their land and in the 19th century they were one of four families who still owned great estates in the area,
several of them using members of the Mayne family as agents to oversee their tenants and property. The four landowners were :The Clones Estate owned by Sir Thomas Barrett-Lennard, Bart.
The Coote Estate owned by Mr. Coote of Raconnell, Esq.
The Rock Corry Estate owned by the Corry family
The Dawson Estate owned by the Earl of Dartrey
In 1770 Thomas Dawson, a Whig MP for Co. Monaghan, was ennobled as Viscount Cremorne and in due course the Dawsons
were able to sit in the Lords of both Irish and English parliaments. Reflecting the family's increase in power and status, Richard
Dawson, the 3rd Lord Cremorne, replaced their existing brick house built in 1780, by a much grander building in 1846 ("an
Elizabethan-Revival mansion) which became known as Dartrey Castle.
Sad to say that eventually the fortunes of the Dawsons waned, the male line died out and in 1937 the contents of Dartrey Castle
were sold. In about 1950 the Castle was demolished and this beautiful once thriving estate on the shores of Lough Dromore was
given over to forestry. See DARTREY: a great Irish estate Paradise Lost?

Dartrey Castle, built in 1780 by the 3rd Lord Cremorne, was demolished in 1950

RESEARCH SOURCES MAYNE of ULSTER

These British and Irish references were used in researching the material presented including the detailed notes on
individuals. The research was done before the web carried family history data. The large gaps that exist in Parish
Registers as a result of the burning of Irish records in 1922 and the subsequent failure to safeguard and centralise
Registers has very much increased the number and variety of references that had to be consulted. The list is roughly

LINKS BETWEEN FAMILY GROUPS IN THIS COLLECTION

There have been many unsuccessful attempts to discover links between the different family groups of
MAYNE in this one-name study. Some examples :-

Ireland & Bucks. There is evidence in Ireland in the form of a 1773 memorial stone inscription at the
Mayne vault at Dartrey that Robert Mayne (1679-1753) of the Sedborough family was born at Creslow, near
Hoggeston in Buckinghamshire, thus linking the Bucks and Irish branches. Although there are details of the
large Mayne family who were established at Hoggeston and from 1596 at Creslow, no record of this
Roberts English origin has been found there.

Ireland & Scotland. Similarities have been identified between the Echlin and Erskine Mayne families. Both
emigrated from Scotland to the same part of Ireland in the 18th century, but no common link has been
discovered.
Devon. In the 16th century, both the Marwood and Shirwell families were living in villages just three miles
apart in rural north Devon, yet no connection between them has been established (the Shirwill family
includes the Catholic priest, Saint Cuthbert Mayne).

Kent & Devon. There have been several persistent but vain attempts over the years to claim descent from
the wealthy Kent Mayne(y)s of the Middle Ages who, it appears, died out as a result of their overreaching
support of the King during the English Civil War. One 19th century claim came from a lawyer, John Thomas
Mayne, of the Exeter family who went to the lengths of manufacturing a spurious pedigree, published by
Burke, and accumulating portraits of other Mayne families to support it.
Ireland, Bucks, Kent & Normandy. A large pedigree, produced about 1900 by another lawyer, John
Dawson Mayne (1828-1917), was widely circulated in UK. It linked his Sedborough Irish family Mayne and
the Buckinghamshire Maynes with the Mayne(y) family of Kent, and through them to the Mayennes of
Normandy (France), back to the year 848 AD. Although much of his data on individuals proves accurate, no
evidence could be found to confirm most of the links he had added between the different family groups in
the course of the 29 generations of his pedigree. It remains unvalidated as a bit of interesting wishful
thinking!
