Fanny (Frances) Power was an heiress, daughter of David and Elizabeth [sic - Sarah] Power of Coorheen, Loughrea (for whom Carolan wrote Carolan's Concerto or Mrs. Power). In 1732 Fanny married Richard Trench of Garbally, County Galway. The tune was probably composed before her wedding because in the second verse (the Gaelic lyrics) Carolan expresses hope he will live to dance at her wedding.". Power, Col. David of Corheen, Loughrea, JP, High Sheriff of Galway, "Priest-hunter" (I168)
7 "History of the family of Seton during eight centuries" and "Annals of a Border Club (the Jedforest)" by George Tancred, 1899, pg 306, gives the following. I have not seen any other evidence, but another Knox connection certainly makes it of interest:

Andrew Ker of Faldonside (commonly called 'Little Ker of Faldonside' [odd ref...??]
Margaret Ker = Andrew Karr of Yair (63 years married [per Kippilaw Papers], 60 years at Yair and 3 years at Sunderland Hall, Selkirkshire)

Colonel Andrew Karr/Ker (b 1620, d 1697), purchased Rippilaw [Roxburghshire] from the Karrs of Yair in the mid-17th c. Soldier, Governor of Hume Castle. A portrait of him in armour is still in good preservation at Kippilaw.
He married Margaret, daughter of Sir James Maxwell of Calderwood, by whom he had a son, also Andrew, whose son, John Karr of Rippilaw, died unmarried in 1746, in which year he executed an entail, which regulated the succession to the estate of Rippilaw for more than a century. His sister Katharine married Gilbert Ramsay, a cousin of Allan Ramsay the poet, and their eldest daughter, Jean Ramsay, became the wife of Daniel Seton of Powderhall, near Edinburgh. Jean's two brothers, David and Andrew, were successively owners of Rippilaw, taking the name of Karr in addition to their own.

28 1566 Visitation calls John the third son of Walter Loveden of Fyfield, Berkshire, and the 1623 Visitation (for which he provided the information to the Herald) states he is eldest surviving son of Walter Loveden. The 1664 visitation confuses John by adding two generations of John Lovedens (perhaps a Herald's mistake); one married to Joan Eve and the other married to Joan Brown. There was only one Joan - Joan Eve, who was the step-daughter of (and raised by), her mother's second husband, Sir Richard Browne.  Loveden, John of Buscot, Berkshire (I2161)

There was a John Erle or Herle in Lambourn in 16th century and an Abbot Thomas Erle of Reading 1409-1430. Loveden, John of Lambourn, Berkshire (I2349)
31 1566 Visitation of Berkshire says he was the second son. Loveden, William (I2352)

1637 - Ms. 41,676/1 - 13 Chas. I [1637?] - Letters patent of the King, by advice of Thos. Viscount Wentworth, Lord Deputy: grant to Thomas Lacy, alias Lacie, gent.: castle, bailiwick, town and lands of Athlackagh [Athlacca, near Bruff (see Ms. 41,673/15)] and other lands (etc. described) in Co. Limerick, etc, etc, etc. (Latin). [Document much damaged by past damp and illegible in parts: seal perfect.]
1641 - David Lacy of Athlacca, 707 acres
1664 — Thomas Lacy of Athlacca, gent,

Q: Were these Lacys of Athlacca related to the Lacys of Bruff (7km distance)??

1837: ATHLACCA, or ATHLATRICHE, a parish, in the barony of COSHMA, county of LIMERICK, and province of MUNSTER, 3 miles (S. W. by W.) from Bruff; containing 1381 inhabitants. The place was anciently the residence of the powerful family of De Lacy, who were proprietors of the surrounding territory, and had two very strong castles, one near the present village, and the other at Tullerbuoy., now Castle Ivers.

- In the old cemetery at Athlacca near Bruff a tombstone, now recumbent beside the vestry door, carries the following legend along the chamfered edge: "I. H. S. David Lacy, John Lacy, Thomas Lacy 1623."
- On the other hand the Athlacca, Dunaman, and Kilmacaneerla families seem to have been one group.
- The Bruree and Athlacca families seem to have been one and the same; in the History of Limerick by Fitzgerald and Magregor there is on record a tradition that de Lacy-Bellingari and de Lacy-Athlacca, brothers, fought a desperate battle near Athlacca, in which the latter was victor, and exultingly bore his brother's gory head away, slung at his waist!
- The Beetham manuscript states that William de Lacy of BallingarryLacy and Athlacca (d. 1610), son of Robert, married twice; first, to a lady named Carroll, of the Ely-O'Carroll family, and, secondly, to Helen, daughter of Edward Fitzgibbon of Mitchelslown, the White Knight. Of the first marriage was de Lacy of La Garthe; of the second was Edmond de Lacy, husband of Mary, daughter of Edmond Fitzgibbon of Ballinahinch, County Lin1erick, and still living in 1590. According to the same source David de Lacy of Athlacca was the oldest son of Edmond and Lady Mary Fitzgibbon, and was still living in 1637; having married, he left a son, Thomas de Lacy of Athlacca, who took out a patent in 1637 to marry his cousin, a daughter of Tighue MacCarthy of Drishane, County Cork, by his wife the Lady Catherine de Lacy. Margareth, sister of Thomas, was wife of Cormac, fourth son of Owen Mac Tigue Mac Carthy. Thomas left one only child and heiress, the Lady Helen de Lacy, who married James Fitzgerald of Pallice, near Kilmeedy, County Limerick. This pedigree goes on to state that Edmond de Lacy, Athlacca, heir male to his nephew, Thomas, married Lady Helen Fitzmaurice, daughter of Thomas Lord Kerry, and had a son, Edmond, who espoused Winnifred, daughter of Matthew Kennedy. Beetham is absolutely incorrect when he attempts to derive the Limerick Lacys from the Rathwyre House. He simply assumes that Robert de Lacy of La Garthe is "doubtless descended from Adomar de Lacy," a knight who was contemporary of Edmond Bruce! In Bruce's army, and amongst the very foremost and most zealous of his Norman-Irish Allies were the three brothers, Sirs Walter, Robert, and Aumar de Lacy, all of the Rathwyre Household. These early Rathwyre de Lacys lost all their properties for espousing the cause of the Bruces. In this respect the following excerpt is significant: "Hugh Gernon had a grant in fee of the castle and manor of Toghobrecock, which was of Hugh de Lacy's estate, but escheated to the Crown because of Bruce's affair." In the persons of Hugh and Walter de Lacy, descendants of Robert, an attempt was made to recover the vast de Lacy inheritance which passed to de Verdon and Geneville. They were aided by the Red Earl of Ulster.
- THOMAS DE LACY. In 1583 he held Knocksouna, near Kilmallock. Undoubtedly he is that Thomas de Lacy whose name appears on the de Lacy tomb at Athlacca,-"David Lacy, John Lacy, Thomas Lacy, 1623,"-the inscribed slab now lying, out of its proper site, beside the vestry door of the church. Amongst his contemporaries at Lismakeery was another Thomas de Lacy. In 1655 Knocksouna was held by J. Goold whose family was later intermarried with the de Lacys of Athea,
the Bishop's birthplace. Another namesake and kinsman of Thomas de Lacy was one of the jurors and signatories to the inquisition respecting the possessions and heirs of tigue Mac Murrough O'Brien, taken at Rathkeale on September 22, 1628. He was styled "Thomas Lacy of Athlacca, gentleman." He attended at the Abbey of St. Francis, Limerick City, on October 13, 1626, and in 1630 witnessed the lease of the castle and rectorial tithes of La Garthe to David Lacy of that township, made by Richard Boyle, Earl of Cork and Orrery. There is also a record of Thomas FitzRobert de Lacy of Ballingarry-Lacy being pardoned with some other de Lacys in 1584, and of a certain Thomas de Lacy "who fledd into Spayne."

Counsellor Lacy, of Dublin — John Lacy, son and heir of Piers Lacy, of Athlacca, co. Limerick, was born about
1645, being aged eight when he and his father ("of Athleackage "), then aged forty-four, were "transplanted" from the co. Limerick in 1653. He was admitted to Gray's Inn (his father "of Ashlackagh ") 15 December, 1673, and to the King's Inns, Dublin, Michaelmas 1678. He was the only barrister of the name of Lacy admitted to the King's Inns between 1607 and 1765. ....
