William (0701) of Carrigafoyle served as a Captain in the Army, probably in the Williamite Rebellion of 1689-91 against James II. He was a JP and an MP for Co. Kerry in 1695 - 1699. In 1697 he married Mary, daughter of Henry Coward, by whom he had five children; for his descendents also see Annexure C. In 1716 he and his son William levied a fine on lands at Ballymalis and Killbonane, Co. Kerry, to ensure their use by his descendants. In the same year the Mayor of Limerick asked him for 2000 oysters, and abbits and piggings for the King’s Birthday! He must have died between 1716 and 1721, when his widow and son Lancelot indentured lands at Hartstowne, Coatstowne, Saraghstowne and Galberstowne, Co. Meath to Pierce Crosbie of Rusheen, Co. Kerry, for 50 years from 1723, at £0.5.0 per acre. In 1727 and 1730 Mary made further agreements about lands in Co. Meath. All these lands would appear likely to have been those received by Lancelot (0801).
