|17th. C. Tokens|
|Scroll through the data.|
THE copper money of Ireland is earlier in date than that of England ; pennies and halfpennies of that metal having been issued by command of Queen Elizabeth. The patent farthings of James I. and Charles I. circulated equally in both countries. Soon after the Restoration, Charles II. granted a patent to Sir Thomas Armstrong for coining copper farthings ; those which were issued by him average twenty-five grains in weight ; but as he was not allowed by the chief Governor of Ireland to make use of his grant, very few were struck.
The five pieces of money of necessity, as called by Dr. Aquilla Smith, stand first in order of date, having been issued in 1646. Six varieties are known, three of which are dated, and were struck at Youghal and Cork. The Kerry town-piece, No. 503, is the same shape and rude execution, and may have been struck about the same time, or even earlier.
As the tokens of this kingdom are not numerous, they are placed in the alphabetical order of the towns. All the thirty-two counties issued them except Mayo ; for the County of Clare there is only one ; Fermanagh is only represented by Enniskillen ; Leitrim has but one token, issued at Manorhamilton ; Longford, three tokens, of Bellinalee, Edgworthstown, and Longford. The city of Dublin issued one hundred and fifty, about one-fifth of the entire number ; the Metropolis of Ireland consequently occupies a lower position in regard to that kingdom than the Metropolis of England does to the whole country, the latter having nearly one-third of the entire series. The county of Antrim has seventy tokens distributed among twelve towns ; Cork forty-two tokens to fourteen towns ; and Tipperary thirty-one tokens to ten towns. Town-pieces were issued in Bandon, Belfast, Cork, Dingle, Dublin, Dundalk, Kerry, Kilkenny, Kinsale, Limerick, Waterford and Youghal.
The Irish tokens are very different from those of England, in being generally of a smaller size, in proportion to their value, and in the great preponderance of pennies, many of them being no larger than the smallest English farthings ; the business of the issuer is commonly expressed by the word MERCHANT, which is rarely found on those of England.
Two proclamations were issued in 1661, prohibiting the issue of tokens ; this will account for the rarity of the dates 1660, 1661, and 1662, of which years this list furnishes but two examples, viz., Hen. Coker, of Drogheda, 1660, and Thomas Cook, of Michelstown, 1661. In 1663 they seemed to have been issued as before, and were continued till 1673, when, on October 17, a proclamation forbade anyone to issue them without license from his Majesty ; this seems to have checked their circulation. Probably about this period some of the older tokens were counterstruck, to make them pass at a lower value. There are twenty-two tokens of various dates from 1673 to 1679, but they are of a different style of work ; two of them, issued at Cork and Kinsale, have inscribed edges.
In 1680 Sir Thomas Armstrong obtained another patent from the King to make copper halfpence. When a sufficient quantity had been struck by the patentee, the Lord-Lieutenant, by a proclamation, declared them the current coin of the realm, and forbade the use of traders’ tokens, and from this time their circulation appears to have ceased.
Dr. Aquilla Smith, M.R.I.A., of Dublin, has most obligingly given me descriptions of the principal portion of the Irish tokens, placing at my disposal the whole of the very valuable manuscripts and the stores of accumulated information on the subject, the result of many years of labour. I am also indebted to Mr. J. Davis White, of Cashel ; the Rev. Canon Hayman, of Youghal ; Mr. R. Malcolmson, of Carlow ; the Rev. Canon Grainger, D.D. ; W. Fraser, Esq. ; and W. J. Gillespie, Esq., and others, for constant and most kindly aid, and for many particulars of tokens from their cabinets, and of valuable notes as to issuers. To each and to all my hearty thanks are respectfully tendered.

|R.||IN . CARTHELOVGH = A bull.|
The issuer was portreve of Carlow in 1660, and is named in “The Sufferings of the Quakers” as having caused to be apprehended in that year twelve Quakers for meeting together in the fear of the Lord, and he committed them to prison till the next Session without examination or Mittinius. They were afterwards fined £320.
The Portreve resided “within ye gate,” and his name is returned in that district
of the town now representing Dublin Street in a schedule to an applotment of
vestry cess made October 13, 1669, in which he is assessed at 10s., being the highest
amount charged upon any individual is the list.
|129.||O.||THOMAS . MOORE . OF = A stag.|

The name of Moore appears in the vestry assessment of 1669, but this particular issuer is not named.

By a charter, dated April 19, 1613, James I. granted certain privileges to the inhabitants of the town. By the charter the Corporation was to consist of "the portrieve, free burgesses, and commonalty of the borough of Carlow."
The privileges granted were confirmed by Charles II. by a charter made in 1675, changing the style of the Corporation to that of “The Sovereign, free burgesses, and communitie of the borough of Catherlough.”
James II. seized to himself all the liberties and privileges of the town, by a decree of his Court of Exchequer, of his own “special grace, certain knowledge, and mere motion” ; the charter granted by the late King was abrogated, and another granted in its stead, bearing date February 24, 4th year of reign Jas. II. By it the King did “make, nominate, and contstitute Garrett Quigley, merchant, to be time first and modern soveraigne of the said burrough.”
The Quigleys were of a Munster stock, hailing from county Tipperary, and the issuer is named upon the vestry assessment already quoted. He appears to have resided in Dublin Street, and, judging from the amount of his assessment, probably, occupied one of the best positions in the town.
He is said to have taken away the oak timber from the castle of Carlow, and with it roofed the houses at the Market Cross during the year of his reign over the town.
In 1693, in the vestry records of the parish church, we find his name appearing as a donor of £10 towards the “repayre of the church,” which is one-third part of the entire amount raised by the parish.
The family does not now exist in Carlow.

In the list of free burgesses previously referred to in the charter of 1675, the name of Edward Reynolds, gentleman, appears fifth on the list. At the time of granting of this new charter he filled the office of deputy-portreve under the charter of James I. He afterwards became sovereign of the borough, and is suposed to have died between 1686 and 1694.

Peter Boyton is one of the subscribing witnesses to the will of Edward Mihill, dated February 6, 1663 (see hereafter).
The name appears amongst the names of Common Council and Aldermen appointed in 1687 by the charter of James II., and amongst those in the marriage registry of about that date.
In the old cathedral upon the rock there is a small shield, upon which are the arms of Boyton, three spur-rowels, with the name of Boyton in old English letters.
There is a townland of the name of Boytonrath within a few miles of the city

The issuer was one of the Common Council appointed under the charter above mentioned, and by the same charter two of the same name were appointed Aldermen, and three of the same name Common Councillors, so that evidently the family was of some importance at the time.
The issuer was most probably connected with the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Cashell, David Kearney, who was descended from a family whose name was long honourably connected with Cashell, and who was born in 1568. It is probable that from this dignitary the crozier which belonged to St. Patrick came into possession of the Kearney family, in whose hands the precious relic remained until handed over to the late Most Rev. Dr. Stattery, Roman Catholic Archbishop of Cashell ; and it now constitutes a part of the crozier in the possession of the present Archbishop.
The relic, the authenticity of which can be proved by legal evidence, conferred upon the family of its possessors the proud title of “Kearney Crux.”
Monuments to various members of the family in Cashell attest to the importance
of its status in the seventeenth century.
|150.||O.||EDWARD . MIHILL = A cathedral.|
|R.||OF . CASHALL = E . M. 1D. and five stars of five points.|
The issuer is believed to have been a retired trooper of Cromwell’s, and his will
appears in the district registry of the Probate Court, Waterford, and in it he
bequeaths all his properly to his wife, and appoints her sole executrix. It is dated
February 6, 1663, and probate was granted June 10, 1663.

The name of John Neve, sen., is found as witness to a will of John Neve, dated 1667, and a John Neaves was buried February 28, 1672.
The will of John Neve, dated December 25, 1667, is in existence, and is
supposed to be the will of the issuer ; and the family continued to reside in Cashell
until the year 1820, when it became extinct by death.
|152.||O.||IOHN . PEENE = The Arms of the Neve family, as above.|

in Cashell, who are probably descended fiom the issuer.

|The notes on these tokens are extracted from a valuable article by John G. A.
Prim Esq., in the "Transactions of the Kilkenny Archæological Society" (vol. ii.,
p. 159). If the entire series of tokens were illustrated in a similar manner,
valuable information might be obtained relative to the eventful period at which
they were struck. Now that the antiquities of our native land are better
appreciated, it is to be hoped that many provincial antiquaries will follow Mr. Prim's
example ; as the study of these memorials of a past age can only be efficiently
carried on by persons possessing an intimate knowledge of the localities in which
the tokens were issued.
|512.||O.||FOR . THE . POORE = C . K. 1659.|
|R.||KILKENNY . PENY = A castle, below it a lion couchant.|
The letters C . K. are the initials of "City of Kilkenny" ; the triple-towered
castle and lion couchant are the city arms. This piece was isssued by the authority
of the Corporation, which at that time exercised a supervision and control over
everything appertaining to the trade of the city. The first mention of tokens in
the Corporation books is under the date August 12, 1658, the Mayor, Thomas
Adams, presiding, when an "Acte touching Brass Coyne" was passed.
|513.||O.||THOMAS . ADAMS = C . K . 1658.|
|R.||KILKENNY . PENY = A castle and a lion couchant.
|514.||O.||THOMAS . ADAMS = C . K. 1658.|
|R.||KILKENNY . HAPENY = A castle and a lion couchant.|
The two preceding were issued by the Corporation during the Mayoralty of
Thomas Adams, the year in which he died. Further reference is made to tokens
in the Corporation books, December 12, 1672, when a number of resolutions were
passed ; one, that Mayor Adams' pence should go for a farthing ; another, that
such persons as put out pence should give bail. It is evident from this that tokens
were circulated in Ireland after Charles II.'s Proclamation of 1673 forbidding
them, which is further supported by the existence of a few specimens issued after
|515.||O.||IOHN . BEAVOR = A beaver standing.|
|R.||OF . KILKENY = I .B. 1D.|
John Beavor, or Beaver, as his name is frequently spelled, seems to have been
a settler in Kilkenny after its subjugation by Cromwell, the name not being
previously met with in the municipal records. He held the Puritan doctrines
introducet by the Parliamentary soldiers, as he is returned as one of the frequenters of
"an unlawful conventicle," after the Restoration. In 1661 he was a member of
the Corporation. He was ordered by that body in 1667 to give security to pay in
good money for such tokens as were returned to him, otherwise they were to be
|516.||O.||THOMAS . DAVIS . KILKENY = A lion's head erased.|
|R.||EXCISE . OFFIS = 1D.|
There is a difficulty as to the identifiralion of the particular Thomas Davis
who struck the token. A muster-roll of the militia at that time raised in Kilkenny
mentions three of the name ; one is particularly specified as "Tho. Davis,
Taylor." who carried a pike ; a second was armed with a musket, and the third
with a pike. A Thomas Davis was elected Sheriff in 1660. The family of Davis,
Davys, or Davies, of Kilkenny, claim to be of the stock of Sir John Davys,
Knight, Marshal of Connaught, temp. Elizabeth, descended through the
Shropshire branch from the ancient family of Davies of Gwassanan, Flintshire, who bore
for their crest a lion's head erased, quarterly argent and sable.
|517.||O.||PETER. GOODIN . OF = 1D.|
|R.||KILKENY . MARCHANT = A fleur-de-lys.|
Peter Goodin was Sheriff of Kilkenny in 1657, and Mayor for two years
consecutively in 1664 and 1665. The family was very ancient in the city ; a John
Godyn was sovereign of the town as early an 1316. The name was sometimes
|518.||O.||RICHARD . INWOOD = A windmill.|
|R.||IN . KILLKENY = 1D.|
Richard Inwood was, like Beavor, a settler in Kilkenny ; he was an innkeeper,
probably his house was called the Windmill. At the commencement of the
seventeenth century the business of an innkeeper was a rare one ; the necessity of an
establishment where strangers could procure lodging and entertainment was felt
so much in Kilkenny, that the Corporation offered premiums to induce people to
open hotels. In 1591 an annuity of forty shillings was granted, according to the
Red Book of Kilkenny, to a person for "keeping an ordinary for strangers" ; and
in 1619 an allowance of £5 per annum was given to a person to induce him to
"keep an inn to entertain the Lords Justices, and noblemen and gentlemen coming
to the city." Bishop Williams names Richard Inwood, innkeeper, amongst the
frequenters of the conventicle in 1661. He was Common Councilman in 1667,
probably elected to that office before the Restoration, as the order of Charles II.,
for having the oath of supremacy taken by all civic officials seems to have been
for some time a sad stumbling block is the way of his subsequent advancement to
municipal dignities. When elected Sheriff in 1668, he did not take the whole oath
of supremacy, for which he was summoned to show cause why the fine should not
be paid for refusing ; the termination of the proceedings is uncertain, it is only
known that another person was elected the same year. Whether Inwood was
converted from dissent by the indefatigable denunciation, oral and written, of Bishop
Williams, does not appear ; but in a few years after, all his conscientious scruples
about the oath of supremacy would seen to have vanished. At a meeting of the
Corporation in 1671, there is an entry in the White Book, to the effect that Henry
Cookson, having been elected Sheriff, was called to be sworn, but not appearing,
he was fined ten pounds for his default ; "Mr. Richard Inwood was chosen in his
place and sworn, and he took the oath of supremacy." In 1672 he was sworn
Coroner of the city, and again took the previously obnoxious oath.
|519.||O.||WILLIAM . KEOVGH = 1D.|
|R.||KILKENY . GOLDSMITH = A mermaid.|
Keough, like many of his contemporaries, appears to have had conscientious
scruples about subscribing to the oath of supremacy, though whether as a
Protestant Dissenter or a Roman Catholic is uncertain. He was sworn Master of the
Company of Hammermen, having bought a dispensation from the Lord Lieutenant
and Council for not taking the oath of supremacy. The population and trade of
Kilkenny were so reduced by the wars and disturbances of the fifteenth and
sixteenth centuries, that the Corporation reduced the number of trade companies ;
amongst the hammermen were included smiths, cutlers, goldsmiths, and all others
working with the hammer in metals.
|520.||O.||IOHN . LANGTON . IN = Arms of the Langton family : three chevronels.|
|R.||KILKENNY . MAR = 1D.|
John Langton was grandson of Nicholas Langton, who was employed by the
Corporation in 1609 to go to London to obtain from King James I. the great
charter, creating Kilkenny a city. Nicholas Langton built the great stone house, now
known as the Butter-slip, and also the mansion of Grenan, near Durrow. His
eldest son, James, had twenty-five sons and daughters ; of these the third was John
|521.||O.||THOMAS . NEVELL . OF = 1658. 1D.|

Engraved in "Kilkenny Transactions," vol. i., p. 392, New Series.
|523.||O.||IAMES . PVRCELL = Arms of the Purcell family : three boars' heads, a crescent for difference.|
|R.||IRISHTOWNE . KILLNY = I . P. 1D.|
There were many persons of this name in trade in Kilkenny in the seventeenth
century. The family was one of great respectability, having for its head the Ba[..]
of Loughmoe, co. Tipperary, but also having several branches possessed of land
property in the county of Kilkenny, as those of Ballyfoile, Foulks[..]
|524.||O.||EDWARD . ROTH . MARCHANT = A stag trippant in front a tree ; the crest of the Roth family.|
|R.||IN . KILKENNY . 1663 = E . R. 1D.|
The name of Roth first appears in the civic records in 1403, when Thos Roth was sovereign or Chief Magistrate of the town. David Roth, Roman Catholic Bishop of Ossory, was son of a Kilkenny merchant, famous alike for the part he played in the politics and literature of the first half of the seventeenth century. In the charter of James I., which raised Kilkenny to the dignity of a city, four of the Roth family are nominated Aldermen.
Edward Roth, who struck the token, was Sheriff in 1651. On March 28 of the preceding year, when Cromwell's besieging army was before the city, he was one of the four commissioners nominated by the gallant governor, Sir Walker Butler to negotiate terms of surrender and for the fulfilment of the treaty, remained in the camp of the besiegers.
The family suffered severely by its adherence to the fortunes of James II., and
has since died out in Kilkenny.
|525.||O.||EDWARD . SEWELL . OF = A man making candles.|
|R.||KILLKENY . TALLOW . CHAN = 1D.|
Edward Sewell is unnoticed in the Corporation records, but a William Sewell
who united the trades of shoemaker and butcher, makes a considerable figure.
When the Kilkenny trade companies were consolidated, the Glovers' Company was
to consist of glovers, feltmakers, and chandlers.
|526.||O.||RALPH . SKANLAN = 1D.|
|R.||KILLKENY . 1656 = A swan.|
Ralph Skanlan was a member of the Corporation, and Sheriff in 1663 ; he died
in office on July 19.
|527.||O.||THOMAS . TALBOT . OF = 1D.|
|R.||KILLKENY . VINTNER = The sun in splendour.|
Thomas Talbot was in the militia company amongst the contingent of pikemen and in the muster-roll also appear the names of John Beaver, Thomas Davis, Peter Goodwin, Richard Inwood, and John Whittle, all issuers of tokens. The company appears to have been composed of shopkeepers and traders of respectability.
A Robert Talbot built the walls of Kilkenny in 1400 ; the family was highly
respectable amongst the trading community. The sun in splendour ís part of the
bearings of the Distillers' Company.
|528.||O.||LVCAS . WALE . OF = Arms of the Wale family : on a crest five lions rampant; a rose in the first quarter for the mark of cadency, denoting a seventh son.|
|R.||KILKENY . MERCHANT = L . I . W. 1D.|
The family of Wale or Wall was of some standing ; Lucas Wale, being a Roman
Catholic, could not enter the Corporation during the reign of Charles II., as the
oath of supremacy was an effectual bar against him. After the accession of
James II., matters were changed in the first year of his reign ; the Earl of
Clarendon, then Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, forwarded a letter to the Mayor and
citizens of Kilkenny, directing them to elect Roman Catholic freemen to
corporators. This order was unwillingly complied with ; an entry in the
Corporation minute book, under date July 2, 1686, states that "seventeen Papists were
sworn of the second council" ; and on July 6 "Luke Wall, one of the above,
elected Sheriff." He died before he had completed his year of office.
|529.||O.||IOHN . WHITTLE . IN = The Commonwealth Arms.|
|R.||KILKENY . 1656 = 1D.|
The family of Whittle was founded in Kilkenny by a soldier of Cromwell's army, one Job Whittle, who lived to the extraordinary age of 127 years. John son, of the patriarch, whose cause he obviously espoused, from the circumstances of having the Commonwealth Arms on his token, which are seldom met with, those of the Royal Arms after the Restoration are very common. He filled the office of Sheriff during part of the year 1664, and Coroner the ensuing year. In 1670 he was admitted to the Common Council, having, as the record expressly states he had "taken the oath of supremacy."
In 1714, Job Whittle was elected town sergeant to the Corporation of Irishtown
and his family were for nearly two centuries hereditary pound-keepers of
St. Canice's parish, having obtained a long lease from the Corporation. This
expired a few years since, when the present representative of the Whittles, a man
in humble circumstances, bearing the name of his ancestor, Job, was dispossessed
of the office by the Town Council.
|530.||O.||FOR. YE . VSE . & . CONVENIENCIE = A triple tower.|
|R.||OF . THE . INHABITANTS = KILKENY HAPENNY . 1677.|
This token is remarkable from its date, which is posterior to the Proclamation crying down these pieces, and was evidently illegally issued. In the White Book of the Corporation, under date December 7, 1677, is the following entry :
"The inscription of Mr. Tobin's pence (for ye use and) with ye Castell on a side ; on ye other side (of ye inhabitants) and within ye sirckell is wrìtten (Kilkeny 1677 and 6 littell stars).
"Put to ye vote whether ye above named pence of Mr. Edmond Tobin should pass or not. Then voted in ye negative ; and ordered yt they should be suppessed and not suffered to pass as current."
Edmond Tobin was a member of the Merchants' Guild.
There are a few other Irish tokens after 1673, which are of a different style from
the previously tolerated if not illegal currency.

By the kindness of Albert Wight, Esq ., of Brabœuf Manor, near Guildford, the head and representative of the parent-stock of the Wight family, we are enabled to subjoin a long and most interesting note relative to the issuer of this token and of his family and descendants. The information was compiled by A. Crossley Hobart Seymour, Esq., of Naples, the representative in the female line of the Irish branch of the family, in January, 1862.
Edward Wight, son of Thomas Wight, of Brabœuf Manor, near Guildford, accompanied General Ireton to Ireland, and, settling in Limerick, was elected Sheriff of that city in 1676, and served the office of Mayor in 1694, and again in 1711.
During his occupancy of the civic chair, money became very scarce is Limerick and an Act was passed authorising him to have coin struck at the Limerick Mint. In Ferrar's "history of Limerick" there is a lengthened history of the Wights, and an accurate description of the money which was coined at that time, with the Arms of Limerick on one side, the Arms of Wight on the other side, and the name of "Edward Wight," Mayor. Several of these tokens were in the possession of Frances Wight, his daughter, but during the troubles of 1798, the rebels helped themselves to everything they could lay their hands upon.
Some years after Edward Wight was elected Mayor of Limerick, he returned to England, and brought back with him to Ireland eleven sisters, all of whom married into the most respectable families amongst the English settlers is the city and county of Limerick, and the county of Clare ; and in the records that remain, we find the names of Tierney, Pike, Piggot, Hobart, Nicholson, Stevens, Daxon Hickman (from whom the present Lord Charlemont descends), Hartwell (from, whom the present Baronet of that name descends), Holland (from whom the late Sir Gore Ouseley, Bart., and Sir William Ouseley, descend), and Odell (grandfather of the late William Odell, Esq., many years representative of the county of Limerick in the Irish Parliament.
The descendants of those families are amongst the most respectable and influential in the South of Ireland. The intermarriages between the Wights, Hobarts and Seymours from that period to the present day have been most frequent, and for several successive generations first cousins have married cousins, thereby confining their immediate connexions too much within their own circle.
The eldest son of Edward Wight was named Rice Wight, after several members of the Brabœuf family. He had a son John Wight, whose line became extinct. Richard Wight, the second son, In Holy Orders, was Archdeacon of Limerick, and Rector of Rathronan. He died in 1762, and left a son and two daughters, viz. :
1. Edward Wight, also Rector of Rathronan, and Archdeacon of Limerick He married Miss Burgh, relict of Michael Cox, Esq., nephew Dr. Michael Cox, Archbishop of Cashell, and grandson of Richard Cox, Bart., Lord Chancellor of Ireland. He left issue a son and two daughters, viz. :Edward Wight, in Holy Orders, Rector of Rathronan, who married his cousin Mary, daughter of the Rev. William John Bowen, Bowen's Court ; and had one son, Edward, and a daughter, Catherine. Both died unmarried.
The first wife of Edward Wight, Mayor of Limerick, was a Miss Hoare highly respectable family, long seated is Limerick, from whom descends Rev. Dean Hoare, a gentleman of great benevolence and philanthropy, whose superintendence the Cathedral of Limerick was much improve beautified in 1752. He left two Sons by Miss Ingram, niece of Dr. Arthur Sm[??] Archbishop of Dublin, of the family of the present Lord Gert : Rev. John Hoare who married Rachel, daughter of Sir Edward Newenham ; and Rev. William Hoare, who married Miss Guinness, sister of Arthur Guinness, Esq., Beaumont.
The second wife of Edward Wight was Miss Bindon, daughter of Alderman Henry Bindon, but by her he had no issue.
The third wife was Miss Hawkesworth (whose sister had married William Hobart, Esq., of Dunmore), by whom he had four other sons and daughters, viz. :
1. John, of whom presently.
Alderman Edward Wight died in 1723. His eldest son by this third marriage John Wight, Esq., seated at Wightfield, near Limerick, was Sheriff of Limerick in 1729, and filled the civic chair is 1741. He married his cousin, Frances daughter of William Hobart, Esq., of Dunmore, great-grandson of Sir Mil[??] Hobart, of Buckinghamshire, whose father's will was dated 1678, and sealed with the arms of that ancient family. The aforesaid John Wight, Mayor of Limerick, died in 1782, leaving issue one son and two daughters, viz. :
The Rev. Edward Wight, Rector of Melick and St. Munchin's, in Limerick married his cousin, Frances, eldest daughter of William Hobart, Esq., High Mount, co. of Cork, and of Mount Melick, in the King's County, whom he left at his decease, in 1775, two sons and two daughters, viz. :
The eldest brother of Mrs. John Wight married the Hon. Catherine Prett[??] eldest daughter of the first Lord Dunally. One of her sisters married the late Baron Metge, M. P. for Dundalk in the Irish Parliament. Another sister Thomasine Bowen, married the Hon. George Jocelyn, second son of the first Earl of Roden. John Wight died a few years since, at an advanced age, and with him died the last of the male line of thiis branch of the Wight family. He was un[??] by marriage of Louisa Joan Jocelyn, who married the Hon. and Rev. Edward Wingfield, brother of Lord Powerscourt ; of Thomasine Jocelyn, the present Countess of Donoughmore ; and Thomasine Emily, the wife of the Right Hon. Frederick Shaw, Recorder of Dublin.
The youngest surviving sister of the said John Wight, Grizelda Wight, married the Rev. Thomas Jones, who was ordained a Missionary to the South Sea Islands in 1798, at the Countess of Huntingdon's Chapel in London, and sailed for the place of destination on board the Missionary ship Duff, which was captured by a Spanish privateer ; and after suffering great hardships, and the wives of the missionaries being separated from their husbands and children, were put on board a vessel to convey them to England, which vessel was again taken by a Portugese ship of war, and they were taken to Lisbon, from whence they ultimately got to England, having suffered the loss of all earthly property. One of Mrs. Jones children, Ruth Wight Jones, died on the passage, when her mortal remains were fastened to a shutter, with a stone attached to her feet, and, after the funeral service was read, and a hymn sung, were committed to the deep.
The sole representation of the Irish branch of the Wight family now rests in children of Catherine Wight, A. Crossley Hobart Seymour and Edward William Seymour.
The eldest son had the name Crossley, as he inherited property with the name. He inherited also from his grandmother, whose maiden name was Hobart, and from his mother and his aunt, Frances Wight, who were heiresses.
In him, as the elder branch, both by father, mother, and grandmother's side, and in Sir John Hobart Culme Seymour, Bart., now rests the representation of the Hobart family.

|R.||IF . NOT . LIKED . ILE . CHANG . THEM = 1D. P . G. 1658.|

rest of the token.
|762.||O.||THOMAS . COOKE . MERCHANT = A pair of scales.|
|R.||HIS . FARTHING = TC. conjoined. 1671.|
Thomas Cooke wrote a history of the town, and was Mayor of it repeatedly. On this account the token is claimed for Youghall, though the town is not named on it. No. 637 is believed to be by the same issuer, as the initials of this name are conjoined in similar fashion, and this monogram may probably have been his trade-mark.
Mitchellstown and Youghall are both in co. Cork.
|763.||O.||IOHN . GERALD . OF = The Arms and Crest of the Fitzgerald family.|
|R.||YOVGHALL . 1667. = I . I . G.|
The heraldic bearings of this token, the shield with the saltire, and the ape as crest, would apparently denote the issuer's descent from the old feudal suzerains of Youghall, the Geraldines.
A John Gerald served as Bailiff of Youghall in 1671 and 1672, and was buried
May 3, 1683.
|764.||O.||FLORENCE . GILES . OF = A griffin rampant.|
|R.||THE . TOWNE .OF . YAHALL = F . G.|
This family came to Youghall from Bowden, is Devonshire, about the middle of the seventeenth century. Four anterior descents are given in the Devon visitation of 1620. At Youghall they were seated in the old colleges, and always maintained, both in town and county, a high patrician place. The issuer is supposed to be a female and to be the person referred to in the following entry in the parish register :
"1671, Januarie 6th, Mrs. fflorences Gyles, widdow, was burled."
|765.||O.||IOHN . HANCOCKE . 1666 = Arms in a shield : a dexter hand couped and erect ; on a chief three cocks, forming a rebus on the name.|
|R.||OF . YOVGHALL . MARCHANT = I . H.|
The issuer was of a Devon family seated at Combmartin on the borders of
Somersetshire. He served as Bailiff of Youghall in 1657, and as Mayor in 1668,
but died June 2, 1669, and is declared as being then Mayor of the town.
|766.||O.||WALTER . HIBBARD = The Arms of the Hibberd family : a star of six points between two flaunches ermine.|
|R.||YOVGHALL . 1668 = W . M . H.|
The name of Hibbard is unknown in the neighbourhood, while that of Hubbard
is common, and the token is, therefore, supposed to be the issue of a Walter Hubbert,
gent., whose baby's baptism was entered November 3, 1668. This individual
served as Bailiff of Youghall in 1676. The token is extremely rare.
|767.||O.||THOMAS . IONES = An anchor.|
|R.||IN . YOVGHALL = T . I.|
The name is of common occurrence in Youghall, but it has not been found
possible to exactly trace the issuer.

|R.||YOVGHALL . MERCHANT = IOHN LVTHER in monogram.
(Countermarked YOVGHAL, and IL. conjoined.)

This family claimed kindred with the Reformer, and were large landed proprietors in Essex, and representatives of the county in Parliament.
John Luther, born in Essex 1623, settled at Youghall about 1650, and married the daughter of Richard and Florence Giles, referred to under 764. He served as Bailiff in 1659, and Mayor in 1666 and 1681, and in the latter year erected a dwelling-house in Windmill Lane, bearing a tablet with his initials and date, which, in 1858, was still standing, and in good condition.
He was appointed Alderman under the new charter in 1688, and Commissioner
of Poll-tax in 1697, but in that year died of fever on December 18, aged 74, and
was buried in the nave of St. Mary's Collegiate Church.

|R.||IN . YAVGHALL = E . L.|
This issuer was of a London family, served as Bailiff of Youghall in 1669, and was three times chosen as Mayor, in the years 1671, 1672, and 1679.
In 1672, June 24, he leased from the Corporation a plot of ground near the Watergate, and upon it erected the Exchange of Youghall. In 1672-73, February 26, he leased from members of the Renayne family other pieces of ground in the vicinity, and built several houses upon them ; and in 1674, May 28, he took from the Corporation ground near the Exchange, reaching towards the water, and here he made a spacious quay. Linely, in his "Irish Tour of 1681," speaking of Youghall, says :
"The harbour is very sure and safe. The chiefest trader and richest merchant of the town is one Mr. Lawndey, who erected an additional wharf, and hath built and contributed much to the decoration of the town by fair houses thereon towards ye Blackwater."
Mr. Lawndey was drowned in his passage to England, August 18, 1693. By
Agnes his wife, sister of John Merrick, of Youghall, he left four sons and died
"seised of considerable real and personal estates."
