Shared note

Educated at Henley School, and entered Christs College, Cambridge, on 8th April 1637. Admitted to Lincolns Inn on 22nd October 1637. Migrated to Oxford and matriculated from Exeter College, Oxford, 2nd June 1638. MP for Tyrone 1639-40. Governor of Fort Charlemont from 1640, which he took over on the death of his father, and where he resided with the 97th Infantry. The Fort was a place of considerable strength and importance during the rebellion of 1641.

On 22nd October 1641, he and his family, including his mother and great aunt Penelope Petty, were at Fort Charlemont and invited to dinner there Sir Phelim O'Neill, who harboured a grudge against the family dating back to the flight of the Earls of Tyrone and the seizure of their lands. Sir Phelim was courteously received by Toby, but in the meantime his supporters surprised the town of Charlemont and captured the family in the Fort, keeping them all prisoner there until 14th January 1641/42. Sir Phelim then ordered Toby to be sent to Cloughouter, a safe place near Cavan, by way of his house, the Castle of Kinard, Caledon. There on 1st March 1641/42 Toby was shot as he entered the courtyard by Edmund Boy O'Hugh, the foster brother of Sir Phelim. Sir Phelim, who claimed no part in this, ordered O'Hugh's arrest.

His mother, who had been sent to 'Mr Charles Bolton's house' at Killynaul, Caledon, with her three youngest children, was subsequently rescued from a house near Bantry Wood on 20th June 1642.

During the 1641/42 uprising Castlecaulfeild was burned by Patrick O'Donnelly, and the Donnellys then resumed ownership of their lands.
