"The Nugent Manuscript Archive"Including Letters on 1798 Rebellion in Co. CorkCo's Westmeath and Cork: [Nugent Manuscript] A very important Archive of Documents, Bonds, Judgements, Rentals, Leases, Conveyances, Receipts, Accounts, Letters, Printed Broadsides and Sranks, relating to the Nugent Estate of Clonlost, Killucan, County Westmeath and the Barony of Orrery and Kilmore in County Cork dating from 1654 to 1846. With a large collection of letters on the 1798 Rebellion addressed from Major General Sir John Moore, Sir Hugh O'Reilly and others to Major Nugent of the Westmeath Militia in Skibbereen, County Cork. All the documents arranged in chronological order in a Collins No. 702 album. Folio. Bound in papered boards. Some documents have been professionally restored. Titled in gilt on spine 'Nugent MS'. All in very good to fine condition. The Archive consists of numerous documents from the mid-17th Century to the mid-19th Century, the earliest dated 2nd September 1654. In all, there are fifteen documents from the 17th Century. There are eleven documents from the 18th Century, in addition seventeen items relating to the 1798 Rebellion. These include important letters (five) from the Lieutenant General Sir John Moore to Major Nugent, Westmeath Militia, Officer Commanding Skibbereen. The Battle of the Big Cross was an engagement in the Irish Rebellion fought between the United Irishmen and a column of British Troops. It was fought at a site about four miles east of Clonakility, in West Cork and it was the only battle fought in the Rebellion in Cork or indeed the whole of Munster. After the attempted landing of the French fleet at Bantry Bay in 1796 the British Establishment was shaken to its core. In response, troops were garrisoned all over West Cork, and in early 1798 Sir John Moore (Moore of Corunna) was given command of 3000 British Troops in that area. In addition a detachment of Westmeath militia was stationed in Clonakility, under Lieutenant Colonel Sir Hugh O'Reilly. This section is particularly interesting throwing new light on the '98 Rebellion. The archive concludes with thirty one items from the 19th Century, plus approximately 130 Free Frank Fronts of Irish and English Peers. As a m/ss., w.a.f. \The family of Nugent is descended from the Norman family of Nogent de Rotrou, a scion of the illustrious House of Bellesme, in Normandy. Two brothers of that family, Gilbert and Hugh de Nugent, accompanied William the Conqueror and fought with him at the Battle of Hastings. In 1172 during the reign of Henry II, Sir Gilbert de Nugent, with his brothers Adam, Richard, Christopher and John, came in the expedition to Ireland in the army of Sir Hugh de Lacy. Large tracts of lands in the County of Meath were granted by the king to Sir Hugh de Lacy, to hold of the Crown by Knight's service. De Lacy in appreciation of his brave and signal services gave to Sir Gilbert his sister Rosa in marriage, and, as a portion with her the Barony of Delvin to him and his heirs with all the appurtenances and towns (except the village of Torrochelack, belonging to the Abbot of Foure).The Nugent family of Clonlost were descended from the 3rd Baron Delvin of Donore. According to one of the letters i this collection. Thomas Nugent, Esq., of Clonlost erected a monument in the old church of Clonlost for the internment of himself, and Ismay Nugent, his wife, daughter of Theobald Nugent, Esq., of Newhaggard, County Meath, and for the said Thomas Nugent's family. Thomas succeeded at Clonlost on the death of his brother Andrew. He was a Captain in the army, and received a grant from Charles II, in 1683, of Newbridge or Clonlost, with other lands in Westmeath, which were created into the manor of Newbridge. Thomas, James, Andrew and Walter Nugent of the Clonlost branch of that family all feature in the early documents in this unique and important Archive.·A Full Catalogue of the Papers is available.
