COMMENCING with Owen O'Maolmichil, who, in 1653, was deprived of his estate by the Cromwellian Settlement, the following is the genealogy of this branch of that family:

1. Owen, of Doon Maolmichiall and Killowen, co. Clare, living in 1653, had:

2. Hugh, who had:

3. Flan, who had:

4. Lawrence, who was twice m., first, to a Miss Stackpool; and secondly, to a daughter of O'Grady, of Cooga, lords of the O'Gonnola, on the Shannon. Lawrence had:

IV. William, of Gort, co. Galway, M.D., who had:

I. The Rev. Urquhart Mulville, a Protestant clergyman, living in 1881, in Tramore, co. Waterford.

[1] Lysaght: It is, perhaps, worthy of remark that Miss Lysaght's brother John was the intimate friend of Lord Edward Fitzgerald and of Lord Lisle (? Lile); and that George Lysaght was her first cousin. Her mother was daughter of Major Kent, of King William's Army; and her grandmother was a Miss Moroney of Miltown-Malbay, co. Clare.
