      Cornelius Connor McGillicuddy and Catherine Chute McGillicuddy:

      "Cornelius McGillicuddy could trace his pedigree to Edward I. According to notes obtained from the McGillicuddy family, "Upon attaining his majority he proceeded to obtain an account from Mr. Herbert, his mother's second husband, of the assets of his father, and for that purpose took out administration to his elder brother Dennis. In 1743, Cornelius had thoughts of marrying a Roman Catholic, as appears from a letter which he received from Redmond Keatinge, a lawyer whom he consulted. In this letter, dated from Dublin January the 7th, 1743, Mr. Keatinge thus advised the McGillicuddy: "I am of opin, ye can't w'th safety marry a Papist. Such marriage is attended with very many legal disabilities, such as to be deemed a Papist, unless the lady shall conform within y* year and day after y* marriage. But I do not think y* such marriage, tho' she should not conform, could affect y* present estate. There is a bill brought in this session to annull all future marriages between Protestants and Papists, but whether it will pass into a law, I know not as yet." The McGillicuddy seems to have adopted the advice of his counselor. In the month of April 1745 (as appears by his love letters still preserved), he was engaged to Catherine, daughter of Richard Chute, esq. of Tulligaron, co. Kerry, by Charity, dau of Arthur Herbert of Currens and Mary Bastable. The McGillicuddy's marriage with this lady was solemnized on the 16th of July, 1745."
