Macartney in Ireland, 1768-72 : a calendar of the chief secretaryship papers of Sir George Macartney by Thomas Bartlett( Book )

1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"George Macartney, Ear Macartney (b.1737, d.1806) was one of the foremost British diplomats and proconsuls of his day. His distinguished career took him to Russia, the West Indies, India, China, italy and South Africa -- and even back to his native Ireland. During the present century, his papers have been dispersed in as many directions: some to the scenes of his diplomatic and proconsular activity, and still more to the United States. Fortunately, almost all his papers of relevance to Ireland -- both to the one Irish office which he held and to his Co. Antrim estate -- have remained in his native Ulster, and are now most of them in the Public Record Office of Northern Ireland. The Irish office which he held, the chief secretaryship, was almost invariably reserved for Englishmen (although it was to be held at the end of the eigthteenth century by a still more celebrated Ulsterman, Lord Castlereagh). However, Macartney's appointment did not prove 'dangerous' (from the British point of view): indeed, his most striking characteristic as chief secretary was his lack of interest in Irish affairs. During his period of Irish office (1768-1772), he never ceased to have an eye to the main chance on the mainland, and he actually spent more time in England than in Ireland. This being so, the office of chief secretary did not develop in his hands in the way in which the viceroyalty was doing in the hands of his principal, Lord Townshend: perhaps, as Bartlett suggests, there was not room for an active chief secretary as well as an active lord lieutenant -- or at any rate an active lord lieutenant of Townshend's temperament. As chief secretary, therefore, Macartney's career is not of much importance: what is of importance are the papers which he left behind. Simply because he was away from Ireland for much of the time, it was necessary for him to be kept informed by those on the spot and more actively engaged in Irish affairs, notably by Townshend himself. However little Macartney personally contributed to events, and however much they need to be reinterpreted (as Dr Bartlett had done, here and elsewhere), the fact remains that the administration in which he happened to serve and which is documented in this calendar, was the key administration of the period 1690-1798."

The Fottrell papers, 1721-39 : an edition of the papers found on the person of Fr. John Fottrell, Provincial of the Dominicans in Ireland, at his arrest in 1739 by John Fottrell( Book )

1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Fottrell Papers owe both their name and their unity as a collection to an event which occurred on 6 June 1739. On that day Fr John Fottrell, provincial of the Irish Dominican friars, was arrested at Toome, Co. Londonderry. As happened on a number of occasions during the penal era when the authorities chanced to lay hands on an embarrassingly high-ranking Catholic functionary (in Fottrell's case, a man of international consequence), he was allowed to escape from jail. But his papers remained behind in the hands of the over-zealous Co. Derry JP who had made the arrest, George B. Conyngham. For a man whose presence in the country was illegal, and who was liable to imprisonment and transportation, Fr Fottrell was carrying quite a collection of documents. Some of them, moreover, provided details of the whereabouts and personnel of Dominican houses all over the country, thus incriminating nearly all his Irish brethren and making possible a comprehensive government round-up of the order. It is an eloquent comment on the zeal with which the penal laws were enforced that this crucial information was not forwarded to Dublin Castle or, apparently, acted upon in any way. Instead, it gathered dust among Conyngham's family and estate papers. This was probably a great stroke of luck, as the papers, had they been lodged in the Castle, might not have survived the holocaust of 1922. It is one of the many wry ironics of Irish history that this very important source material on the organization of a Catholic religious order, both inside Ireland and beyond, should have been preserved among the papers of a Scotch-Irish protestant squire. The holdings of the Public Record Office of Northern Ireland are much the richer for the accident. PRONI has also been very fortunate in finding, in Fr Hugh Fenning, an editor whose expertise in Dominican history has enabled him to place the Fottrell Papers in their wider European context."
