From Dr. Casey collection.

In this the Welplys share a McCarthy heritage with the Dunmanway Shouldhams who descend from the marriage c 1705 of Shouldham to a McCarthy heiress through which they acquired the Cork estates.

  1. John Falvey said:

    Which Florence McCarthy Mór was Cormac the son of? The last three Florence McCarthy Mór were:
    1. The one who died in the tower in 1640.
    2. The one who died without issue in 1688 and was succeeded by his brother Cormac.
    3. The one who married Agnes Herbert in 1741 (marriage settlement: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-CSHS-Y97K-7?cat=185720) and who was dead by 1756 when Charles Smith wrote “Florence, the late Mac-Carty More, who by his wife Agnes, daughter of Edward Herbert of Muckruss, Esq; left a son , now a minor, and at school in England “. The son was Charles who fell off his horse in 1770 resulting in the next McCarthy Mór being a descendent of Florence #1’s third son.

    O’Hart made a mess of this line transposing Randall McCarthy Mór with his son Florence #3 and leaving out Florence #2.

    Cormac is unlikely to be a son of Randall as the Register of Admissions to the Middle Temple has an entry for 23rd December 1728 saying “Florence McCarthy, only son of Randolph McC, of Pallis, Kerry, Ireland, esq.”, Pallas was the family home at that date.

    Randall signed over the family estates to Florence #3 in 1729. Florence #3 was styling himself McCarthy Mór by 1732.
