Shared note

On 8 June 1618 Knighted in his own right by Lord Deputy St John. In 1620 Sheriff of Co Tyrone, and in 1621 Governor of Fort Charlemont for life. Between 1627 and 1634 he was Master General of the Ordnance, as a reversionary grant of office on the death of his uncle Sir Toby, and also a Commissioner for the Escheated Estates. In 1630 he passed a new patent for all his lands, under the Commission for Remedying Defective Titles, with a fine of £500, under which all inheritors would need to be English rather than Irish, and Protestant rather than Catholic. He took his seat in Parliament on 4th November 1634, as MP for the Borough of Charlemont, after the Lord Chancellor "had moved to know the pleasure of the House whether he should be admitted to this place, having brought neither writ of summons nor patent, whereupon it was agreed that his lordship should be admitted, inasmuch as they were all satisfied that he was a lord of parliament". His lordship died in his bed and was first buried at Charlemont but later removed to Armagh Cathedral. His Will was dated 6 November 1640. His widow survived for 23 years, for 14 of which she was kept out of her estates by the dominant party. In August 1661 she received £40 from the Irish Government " for her present maintenance".
