Was amazed to learn that Lady Dianna Spenser is a Coughlan (Carrignmanus) and Durrus (Evanson) descendant as is the wife of Marshall McMahon (1808-1893) of France. Marshal McMahon (President and Marshal of France in 1873) on his marriage to Elizabeth, daughter and heiress of the Duc de Castries Marie Edme Patrice Maurice de MacMahon, marquis de MacMahon, duc de Magenta was a French general and politician, with the distinction of Marshal of France. He served as Chief of State of France from 1873 to 1875 and as President of France, from 1875 to 1879
In the Paddy O’Keeffe papers in the Cork Archives dealing with a query on the Symms family there is a letter from Edward Keane (National Library) of the 5th September 1961. He states that the Marshall and a few other famous McMahons are descended from Patrick McMahon and Margaret O’Sullivan who married in Bantry in 1707. He asks Paddy O’Keeffe for knowledge of this Margaret.
O’Coughlans clients of the O’Mahonys of Mizen. About 1600 a falling out they switch to Boyle adn Hull and become Protestant. According to Maziere Brady enclosed after the 1641 ‘Rebellion’ they hightail to England. Slight error in Maziere Brady last page he refers to Rev. Fisher Teampall na mBoche his father he says is 2nd name Devonshire wrong it should be Devonsher old Cork merchant family.
Of the family Jeremiah (Jeremy) an attorney marries Susann Evanson of Durrus. He is involved in a number of deeds in Durrus with his brother in law Nathaniel Evanson. These deeds are part of the former McCarthy lands west of the current Durrus Village.

Nathaniel 1730 Bandon estate records show Nathaniel and his brother-in-law renting townlands from the Bernards around Gearhameen and surrounding townlands. Conjectured that Jeremy’s relations were settled on one of the better farms in Clashadoo, now occupied by the Johnston family. Thomas Dukelow married into that farm in 1818 to Frances Coghlan, probably a relation of Jeremy Coughlan Coughlans of Carrigmanus working with Hull from the early 17th century acquired former O’Mahony lands. Among children Rev. Henry Coughlan, George Esq, possible nephew Joseph. Jeremiah died before 1737. See Registry of Deeds project. Susanna 3rd child Evanson family history, MLB
I see in 1790 Charles and Richard Coughlan were renting probably the former townlds in Kilcrohane owned by the College of St. Mary in Youghal after the relation Nathaniel Evanson is renting.
he is joint manager of the Boyle (DEvonshire estate West Waterford)
Durrus Marriages, quite a number of Durrus C of I families, Attridge, Dukelow, Shannon are Coughlan descendants so going back 10,000 to first people in the area.:
It may be that either Richard or Charles Coughlan who are in Kilcrohane deed 1790 are the father of Elizabeth adn Frances maybe no male heir.

Anxious to hear what the letter said about the Symms family!
Very interesting, in that Susanna Evanson, wife of Jeremiah Coghlan, is a relative of mine (as you know). However, what exactly is the link between these Coghlans and the Castries and Spencer families? Sorry if I’m being dim.

Re Lady Di and West Cork
Thank you for a most interesting item that links Lady Diana Spencer with West Cork. In fact the Spencers of Althorp also had an earlier connection with West Cork. This involved the wife of the notorious 2nd Earl of Castlehaven who ended up being executed in London in 1631 for crimes of sexual depravity. His wife Anne was the eldest of three daughters of Lord Derby and Alice Spencer of Althorp. If King Henry VIII’s will had been strictly followed Anne would have succeeded Queen Elizabeth I. However Elizabeth thought otherwise, perhaps with good reason given the above, and favoured James VI of Scotland who then became James I England. The Earls of Castlehaven, beginning with the 1st Earl who fought under Mountjoy at the Battle of Kinsale and then took over much of the historic lands of the O’Driscolls and the O’Mahonys, continued as Lord Audleys until after the Great Famine. They developed the four copper mines in Ballydehob in the early 1800s, a project that was riddled with fraud and deception and fed into the horrors of the famine years in the locality. These lands were finally disposed of as an encumbered estate in the post-famine years.
I have recently published a book which discusses the above story in detail, ‘The Earls of Castlehaven Lord Audleys of Cork and Kildare – War, Sex, Corruption, Land’ (2018), see covers attached. Its available in some local bookshops, eg Skibbereen, Bantry, Clonakilty, Bandon, Macroom and Waterstones and Vibes and Scribes in Cork city, as well as online at omahonys.ie, hannas.ie and Amazon. Also available indeed from myself, price â¬20 which includes postage.
