Sir Thomas FORTESCUE of Dromiskin31,209 was born in 1620. He died in 1710. Thomas succeeded to his father Faithful's estates. He served in the army in the Low Countries. He was his father's cornet in the troop that he raised in 1642, and he served the King in several battles. On 2nd August 1649 he was taken prisoner by the Parliamentarians in action at Dublin.

He became governor of Carrickfergus Castle in 1661, was knighted in 1663, and in 1682 he served as High Sheriff of Co. Down. He was imprisoned in Dublin Castle when James became King, but was released in 1688 on the defeat of James at the battle of the Boyne. Thomas died in 1710 at the age of 90. His Will of 1684 was proved on 22nd May 1710.

By his will of 1684, Sir Thomas Fortescue settled the lease of Dromiskin on his eldest son, Chichester, and the freeholds on the younger son, William. Chichester, however, died during the Siege of Derry leaving an infant son, Thomas, as his sole heir. Perhaps because of this, William, who had been living at Dromiskin, attempted to stake a claim to the lease himself, thus hoping to gain all of the family's Co. Louth estate. A legal wrangle then ensued between William and the guardians of young Thomas, a matter further complicated by the fact that old Sir Thomas (who lived until 1710) sided with each party at various stages of the proceedings. The intricacies of this tussle, which witnessed claims and counter-claims, various recriminations and gradually descended into a general slanging match, are documented in detail [D/4074/1/1/1-10].

Though the case was finally settled c.1715 (with the lease of Dromiskin coming into possession of Thomas), the family as a whole had by this stage become involved in another legal dispute with the Archbishop of Armagh, who accused Sir Thomas and William Fortescue of surreptitiously annexing church estates during the upheaval of the 1690s. Document D/4074/1/7, in which the Archbishop sets his lengthy grievances before the Lord Chancellor of Ireland, Sir Constantine Phipps, paints a vivid picture of local disorder within a kingdom in crisis.

The descendants of Thomas Fortescue continued to hold Dromiskin during the eighteenth century, whilst those of his uncle, William, held and/or acquired various estates in Louth and elsewhere. Sections D/4074/2-7 chart the rise in prosperity, of William's family, from his death in 1733, through 1777, the year when his grandson, William Henry Fortescue was created Earl of Clermont, to the year 1833, when the large Clermont estates (at Reynoldstown and Ravensdale, Co. Louth and Grangegeeth, Co. Meath) reverted to Thomas Fortescue of Dromiskin. Detailed maps (many coloured) are also included, along with a series of rentals.

Sections D/4074/8-10 of the archive contain deeds, leases, maps, rentals, etc, relating to other lands were acquired from or by the Fortescues, including five townlands near Banbridge sold by Chichester Fortescue of Dromiskin to the 3rd Marquis of Downshire in 1826. Of particular interest, however, are papers concerning the Levinge family of Knockdrin Castle, Mullingar, Co. Westmeath, whose lands at Stickillin, Co. Louth, were sold to Thomas Fortescue in 1835. The story of Stickillin represents an interesting example of the machinations of Williamite favorites (in this instance Henry Sidney, Earl of Romney, Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, (1692-1695) in relation to the post 1691 forfeitures. The land itself was originally part of the estate of Richard Talbot, 1st Duke of Tyrconnel, James II's Lord Lieutenant. After the confiscation of Tyrconnel's land by William III, Stickillin was granted to Henry Sidney, who in turn sold it to Charles Campbell of Dublin. In the wake of the English Act of Resumption of 1700, which sought to undermine the Williamite policy of rewarding favorites with large tracts of Irish land, Stickillin was sold by the Trustees of the Forfeited Estates to Sir Richard Levinge. For those researching the land settlement in the wake of the Jacobite defeat in Ireland, Stickillin makes a worthy case study. Parents: Sir Faithful (Faskie) FORTESCUE and Lady Anne MOORE.

Extract concerning Anglo-Chinese War the Opium War

Commodore Elliot was ordered to take the Barracouta, Coromandel, and ships' boats, and disperse or capture the junks; and, Commander Bate having buoyed the narrow channel, the force proceeded at daylight on the 6th, and Fortescue presently anchored the Barracouta 800 yards above French Folly, and within 200 yards of the nearest of the hostile vessels, which were all ready for action. The Barracouta, in order to prevent the Chinese from training their guns on her, fired her bow pivot gun as she approached, and so provoked the enemy, who, from more than 150 pieces, retaliated ere she could bring her broadside to bear. In about five-and-thirty minutes, however, her grape and canister, and the approaching boats, under Captain Thomas Wilson, drove the people from their vessels; and the sloop was then able to give her undivided attention to French Folly, which, being soon silenced, was taken possession of by a landing-party under Captain King Hall. Its guns and ammunition were destroyed. Two 32-prs. in Dutch Folly rendered material help during the engagement. The junks, being aground, or sunk, were burnt, with the exception of the admiral's ship, which was brought off, and two more, which escaped for the time, though one of them was afterwards burnt by Captain King Hall. Seymour mentions with praise the conduct of Commander Fortescue, of his senior Lieutenant, William Kemptown Bush, and of Lieutenant Henry Hamilton Beamish, of the Calcutta, who, under a very heavy fire, carried out the anchor by means of which the Barracouta (her hull was pierced by 28 large shot, besides smaller ones) was enabled to spring her broadside. The affair, very bloody to the enemy, cost the British a loss of but 1 killed and 4 wounded.
