GENEALOGICAL.

16th cent. Vellum. 21.5x15.5 cms. Ff. 10 numbered in pencil (ff. 1 and 10 a bifolium forming outer covers and loosely enclosing three gatherings, 2-5, 6-7, 8-9; this bifolium was at one time folded in the reverse direction and correctly placed between the present ff. 8 and 9 : see the genealogy of Fathadh na Canóine, ff. 1 v, 9 r). Probably written by a single hand throughout: apparent changes of hand (e.g. ff. 3 d, 3 h, 4 g, 5 c, 6 g-h) to be attributed to changes of pen and variations in surface-quality of vellum. Script also varies in size and degree of compression. Note on f. 8 r, upper margin, in different ink from main text, but in scribal hand: ‘Is[...]/[...] arna gealladh dhamh go nimeortha com[. . .] / misi Di[arm]aid occ mac Tuileaccna dosgraibhne sin [. . .]’; cf. f. 3 v, lower margin. Tuileagna is a name which appears to be peculiar to the Ó Maoilchonaire family, but this Diarmaid does not seem to occur in any of the Ó Maoilchonaire genealogies. The terminal points of the genealogies vary considerably; none of them, as far as the persons can be identified, goes beyond the last quarter of the fifteenth century and both text and manuscript may be dated to c. 1500.

That the scribe may have been working from a partially illegible or otherwise defective exemplar is suggested by his leaving blanks at the beginning of some genealogies (e.g. ff. 1 a, 3 a): that this exemplar may have been of Leinster provenance is suggested by the amount of detail supplied for Mac Murchadha and Ó Tuathail, although the accounts of Mag Raghnaill, Ó Fearghail and Ó Ceallaigh are equally detailed. The lengthy genealogy of the Ó Deóráin family, hereditary jurisconsults to Mac Murchadha, perhaps points in the same direction. To this is appended a note: ‘A lebur na hUagabala an ginelach so hI Deorain’. This presumably refers to the Book of Leinster (LL), formerly Leabhar na Nuachongbhála, but there is now no genealogy of the Uí Dheóráin as such in LL, although the earlier generations of the pedigree correspond in part to those of other Eóghanacht families in LL 321 b 21 (M. A. O’Brien, Corpus genealogiarum Hiberniae I (Dublin 1962) 215); the only other source in which a genealogy of the family occurs is apparently Mac Firbhisigh’s compilation (cf. RIA Cat., 1829, etc.).

Four columns to page; dry-point ruling, with marginal prickings. F. 1 r blackened and illegible; f. 10 possibly originally blank-scribbling now on recto; text faded and stained in places. The whole may have originally formed part of a larger manuscript. Labelled 11’ (over earlier label) on front cover and ‘555’ on spine.

Marginalia and notes: (a) 3 v, lower margin. ‘Femcus do Diarmuit comad fherr aliter fen.’ (b) 5 v, lower margin (inverted), ‘ffariell Mac Hoe is leas an louer soe’; cf. 9 v marg. (c) 6 r, lower margin (inverted). ‘Milmore (?) Mac Thoe is e soe a lane’; cf. 8 h marg. (d) 7 r, lower margin. ‘Ag so leabar Domhnuill mic [...]/ Mic Eochaidh arna thabhairt (?) [. . .].’ (e) 8 h m (trans.) ‘Miles Keoghe His hand and seale (. . .)’; cf. 6 r marg. (f) 8 h i. ‘Peter Byrne his Book / of Geneology written / (. . .).’ (g) 9 v, right margin (trans.). ‘Farrell Keoghe [hi]s Book (1695)’; cf. 5 v marg. Further writing and scribbling (largely illegible) on ff. 1 v, 2 v, 3 r, 5 r, 6 v, 8 r, 9 r; for f. 8 r marg. see above.
