For the better understanding of the suit which subsequently arose between the parties, it may be well to show the devolution of the property previous to the date of the last mentioned conveyance or mortgage.  This appears very clearly from the recitals in a document still in existence.

Whereas Queen Elizabeth, of famous memorie, by Letters Patent under her broad seale of the Kingdome, dated the 19th year of her Raigne,[3] in consideration of manie great and acceptable services vnto her highness in times of hostillity and rebellion performed and done by the said Sir Cormacke McTeige, Knt, as a speciall mark of her princelie favour and as a recompense of the great merits and service amongst other things granted vnto him the said Sir Cormacke and his heirs, all that and those the Manour and Castle of Cloghan, three plowlands thereunto belonging, and all and singular the parts and parcells, members, and appurtenances therevnto as well in desmesne as in service, and all other rents and hereditaments of whatsoever quantitie, nature, or degree now taken, accepted, or reputed as part member or hamlett hereof or held or possessed as member, part or appurtenant therevnto, situate, lying, and being in the barronie of Carrabry in the Countie of Courke, and all the halfe plowland of Ballycomene situate in the said Countie and Barronie excheted vnto the Crowne by the attainder of Danell McComake McCartie, late of Cough, attained of high treason by force and virtue whereof the said Sir Cormacke McTeige, Knt, ent’red into the said Manner, Castle, and lands and other hereditaments, and was thereof seised in his demeasne as of fee, and died of such an estate soe thereof seised after and by whose decease the said Manner, Castle, Toune, and lands and other hereditaments discended and came vnto Charles Cartie,[4] sonne and heir vnto the said Sir Cormake whose sonne and heire being thereof seised in his demeasne as of fee by his deed in due forme of lawe perfected, wherein Donoge Cormake, brother to the said Charles did ioyne, dated 16 May, 1594″

granted premises as above mentioned to Walter Copinger.

A bill was some years afterwards filed in the Court of Chancery by the above-named Charles McCormacke McTeige McCartye to set aside this deed, or rather to obtain a decree that it was intended to be by way of mortgage only. The proceedings are set forth at great length in the decree, dated the 5th December, 1633, which is preserved in the Public Record Office, Dublin.  In these proceedings McCartye’s son alleges that the deed was “upon confidence and trust upon condition comprised in a defeazance signed, sealed, and delivered by the said Walter Coppinger bearinge equall date with the said deede of feoffment by which the said Walter Coppinger did by himselfe, his heirs and assigns, convenant and graunt to and with the said Charles McCormacke and the said Donogh McCormacke and euerie of them and the heirs and assigns of the said Charles McCormacke and Donogh McCormacke and eurie of them that if the said Charles McCormacke and Donogh McCormacke or one of them or the heirs or assigns of them or one of them did well and truely content, satisfie, and pay or cause to be contented, satisfied, and paid to the said Walter Coppinger, his heirs or assigns at the dwelling house of John Coppinger fitz John within the Citti of Courke,” the amount advanced the premises should be reconveyed.

The Court does not seem to have given effect to the alleged deed of defeazance, for it ordered that “notwithstanding any previous order or orders to the contrary Sir Walter Coppinger should hold and enjoy all and singular the Castle and 3 plowlands of Cloghane, situate in the Barony of Carbery and Co. of Cork, and the half plowland of Ballycoman als Ballycomem with the appurtenances for ever against the plaintiff Charles McCarty.”  It further ordered that the plaintiff should execute a conveyance of the said premises to the defendant Sir Walter or others to his use in consideration of £300 to be paid by instalments.
