Captain of the Sleughtwilliam - Annaly - Chief - Sleaught William
The Captain Princes of Annaly
Definition: A Captaincy or Captainship is equivalent to a
Chief of a Nation or Country with the title of Clan Leader and usually was offered to Princes or Clan
Leaders as a Grant of a Territory larger than a Count's County or barony. These captaincies were offered
in the 12th-1600s but may have been phased out after that where dukedoms or Earl Titles began being
granted. Captainships are very rare and rarely aquired except by inheritance or special legal
Grant of The Clan Liam or Annaly Captainship -
Custody ( Chieftancy ) - Grant by Queen Elizabeth I in 1565 or Grant of the Slewght William (Mostrim) in the
Annaly to Baron Delvin ( Irish Kingdom of South Teffia ) - also spelled Sleuaght William or
Slewghte William in the Annaley. These rights of honor of the ancient Longford-Annaly were sold by
Earl Westmeath/Lord Baron Delvin in 1996, and are now owned by the Seigneur of Fief Blondel of
Annaly was not shired into Longford County until
1586. Faghan O'Farrell made a secondary formal surrender to Queen Elizabeth in 1587 and a year
later obtained a regrant. In all probability the original chief towns or North Teffia and South Teffia were
Granard and Ardagh, respectively, but it is more than probable that Granard was at all times an important place
in the county.

Baron Delvin receives the Captaincy of the Slewght William of Annaly or Clanwilliam (Irish: Clan Liam) in
1565. Baron Delvin is Anglo-Norman-Irish and a descendant of Irish Kings.
1) This Captainry grant is a charter from the Crown and is a
patent or title of Captaincy or Captainship.
2) This Captaincy is of Annaly which is an ancient Kingdom and pertains to
Clanwilliam (Irish: Clan Liam)
3) Local tribes have abolished their own Chiefships in the Annaly, and these titles
were regranted by the Crown.
4) This Captainship is also over the Sleught William or Clan William of Annaly.
The Captainships were also known as Seigneurie or territories owned by a Lord.
5) The Title of Captain or Chief with Custody rights of the region is historically
related to being the Lord, Chief, or Prince of the region and clan.
6) The historical captainship exists beyond the Kings and Queens of England as the
Nation of Ireland is independent and surely recognizes indigenous history and rights.
7) In various instances, a Captaincy is in charge of a Castle or Caput and a nation
or country, and the Captain seems to have the noble rank of Prince or Earl or
8) Many scholars on nobility are not familiar with Captainships as they were
prominent in the 1400s and 1500s, but may have evolved into titles of Chiefs, Earldoms or Prince Titles after King
A sliocht is a branch of a race or clan and is considered a
"Gaelic or Irish TRIBE" and the descendants of the name, but is also a gaelic word that is synonomous with
the word sept used in relation to the Chieftancy of a Country. The word spelling of "Slut" , "Slute", "Sleught", or
'Slewght" is also seen in Irish History books.
The county was officially shired in 1586 in the reign of Elizabeth
I from the northern portion of Westmeath, but English control was not fully established until the aftermath of the
Nine Years' War.

Captainships came with much value of about 100 Pounds Sterling
with duties custody and rule over a Country such as Annalye or Annaly. The captaincys of the local population
were abolished by statute, and regranted to loyal lords and barons and princes. These captainships seemed to have
been a much coveted title to receive during the 1500s and 1600s from the King or Queen of England with an
equivalency to a Count or Baron Feudal Title.

Moiety of Ardagh to Baron Delvin in County Lonford
Moiety is a Middle English word for one of two equal parts under
the feudal system
 Thus on the death of
a feudal baron or lord of the manor without a male heir (the
eldest of whom would inherit all his estates by the custom of male primogeniture
) but with daughters as heiresses, a
moiety of his fiefdom would generally pass to each daughter, to be held by
her husband. This would involve the division of the barony, generally consisting of several manors, into two or
more groups of manors, which division would presumably be effected by negotiation between the parties concerned.
Such was the case in the barony of Newmarch, the
caput or chief manor of which was
at North Cadbury
, Somerset, when James de Newmarch died in 1216; had no son but left two co-heiresses, Isabel and Hawise, who being
heirs of a tenant-in-chief became wards of the king.

castle, of Granard was found in this year to have
been leased to Francis Shane, knt. for a term of years, and a quarter of the Do, minicans lands, to
which belonged the rectory of Granari ; there was appendant to this rectory a chapel of ease, called
Clowneballema‘arnan, in the county of Cavan. Sir Francis Shạne had also a lease of the rectory of
Surade, alias Street, lying partly in the county of
Longford, and partly in that of Westmeath ; and of those of Shrowell, Külacamock, Moydowe, Kilnashee,
Tashevat, Tasbeene, Clonchies, Templemichell, Kilglasse, and Ballincarmick, with three cartrons of land,

tories and cartrons of land belonged to the priory of Loughseudy. see Inrolment. 1634. RATHREA,
AND A HARAGH.— The
former of these rectories was found, by inquisition
taken in this year, to extend into the lands of Rareagh, Corfobullaghes, Kossart, A

Ardagh and his successors of four quarters and a halt' of Fenagh ; five, of Cloone; two, of
Kiltaughourke; the half cartron of Aghanecrosse ; the two quarters of Kiltubrid ; the two, of Killerry;
and the quarters of Anpaghdufre and Killenemuiry. It appears by letters patent dated the 26th of
February, in the seventeenth year of James the first, that bis Majesty had intended, on the plantation
of the county of Leitrim, to assign these lands to the bishop of Ardagh, in lieu of which the bishop had
covenanted for himself and his successors, to release to his clergy of the said county
thequartaparsepiscopalis; but as the bishop of that day
neglected to pass patent, pursuant to said letters, an application was made by bishop Richardson to
King Charles the first, who, on the 24th July 1631, and 8th April 1633, directed these lands to be
granted to the bishop, pursuant to the intentions of his father in this matter. This measure was
however retarded by a former order of the council-board of the 17th March 1616, whereupon the King,
by his letters of the 21st June 1636, ordered this grant to pass. The grant appears to have taken
effect in 1638.pursuant to the tenor of a certificate made by the commissioners for remedy of
titles, dated 10th May 1637, contirmed by the lord deputy and Council. 1698. KILTOGHARD.--The ancient
parish church of Kiltohorke, alias Kiitoghard, in the
barony and county of Leitrim, being situate in an uninbabited and remote part of the parish ; it was
made lawful, as Carrick-drumruske in the said parish and barony was an english corporation and wholly
inhabited by Protestants, and therefore convenient for the situation of the said parish church, to build
the parish church at a convenient place in the town of Carrick-drumruske, the ground for the site of the
church and church-yard having been set apart for the purpose, by sir George St. George, of Hedford,
bart. v. 10.Williamiii.ch.6. 9. 1723, SHRULE.-- The site of the parish-church of

Grant of CaptainShip and Custody to Lord Delvin of the Clan in the Annaly (Longford County was not
shired until 1580s...)
Slewaght is a Gaelic word for Clan which implies the Grant of a Chief Title or Princely Title
In 1543, King Henry VIII granted Captainship or Seigneurie of Nation of Thomond to
Grant by King James of Captainship of the Country of Wicklow region to Harringtons and Byrnes
From CHAT GPT
The chieftainship was the traditional leadership role in many Irish clans. The chieftain, or "rí," was the
highest-ranking member of the clan and was responsible for leading the clan in matters of war, diplomacy, and law
for the country or nation. The chieftain was often a hereditary position, passed down through the male line of the
clan. However, the succession was not always clear-cut, and there were often disputes or challenges to the
Tanistry was a system of succession used by some Irish clans to choose their chieftain. Under tanistry, the
chieftain was chosen from among the eligible candidates within the clan, usually a close relative of the current
chieftain. The selection process often involved consultation with other members of the clan, and the chosen
candidate would then serve as the chieftain until their death or retirement.
Today, while many Irish clans continue to exist, their leadership roles and governance structures have evolved with
the times, and traditional roles like chieftainship and tanistry are generally not used in a formal capacity.
However, these historical terms remain an important part of Irish cultural and historical heritage.
The titles of nobility granted to Irish chiefs were often created specifically for them, and were distinct from the
existing English peerage. These titles were usually granted in recognition of loyalty to the Crown, military
service, or other forms of public service. The most common titles granted to Irish chiefs were baronets,
barons, viscounts earldoms or higher titles.
The granting of titles of nobility was intended to encourage Irish chiefs to adopt English customs and to become
more fully integrated into English society. It also helped to create a new Anglo-Irish aristocracy that would be
more loyal to the Crown and more supportive of English rule in Ireland.
However, the relationship between Irish chiefs and the English Crown was complex and often contentious. Many Irish
chiefs resented English attempts to subjugate them, and some resisted efforts to integrate them into English
society. Others, however, saw the granting of titles of nobility as a way to secure their own power and status, and
worked actively to promote English interests in Ireland.
"Sliocht" is an Irish word that means "progeny" or "offspring". In Irish culture, it has been traditionally used to
refer to the descendants of a particular person or family, such as the sliocht of a particular clan or
In the context of Irish genealogy, "sliocht" is often used to trace family lineages and connections. For example, a
person might be described as the "sliocht" of a famous warrior or saint, indicating their familial connection to
that person and their importance within their community.
Today, the term "sliocht" is less commonly used in everyday language, but it still holds an important place in
Irish cultural history and genealogy.
"Sleught William" or "Sliocht Liam" is a term that may refer to the descendants of William Burke, who was
a 16th-century Irish chieftain. The Burke family was a prominent and powerful family in Irish history and played a
significant role in the politics and conflicts of the time.
The term "Sleught William" is also sometimes used to refer specifically to the descendants of William Burke who
settled in the province of Connacht in western Ireland. Today, many people with Burke ancestry still use the term
"Sleught William" to identify their family lineage.
It's worth noting that the spelling of this term may vary depending on the source or context, and you may also see
it spelled as "Sliocht William" or "Sliocht Liam".
Yes, captainships in Annaly (also known as Anghaile or Annalye) were granted by the English monarchs during the
16th and 17th centuries. Annaly was a territory in the Irish midlands that encompassed parts of what is now County
Longford and County Westmeath.
Under the English Crown's "surrender and regrant" policy, Irish chieftains and nobility were granted titles and
lands in exchange for their loyalty to the English monarch. In Annaly, the O'Farrell family, who were one of
the Gaelic rulers of the region, were granted the captainship of part of the Annaly by Queen Elizabeth I
in 1583. The captainship conferred certain privileges and responsibilities, including the right to collect taxes
and maintain law and order in the area.
Over time, the captainship of Annaly was held by a number of different families, including the Farrells, the
Dowdalls, and the Terrels. The title continued to be recognized by the English Crown until the 17th century, when
it was abolished as part of broader reforms to the Irish feudal system.
A captaincy of a clan is a term used in Ireland or Scotland to refer to a position of leadership within a clan. The
captaincy was traditionally held by the head of the clan, who was responsible for leading and protecting their
clan. In some cases, the captaincy could also be held by a close relative or trusted advisor of the chief.
The role of the captaincy varied depending on the specific clan and historical context, but it typically involved
overseeing military , managing the clan's resources and finances, and acting as a mediator or diplomat in disputes
with other clans. The captaincy was an important position within the nation of the clan, and it was often
hereditary, passing from father to son or another designated heir.
Today, while many clans continue to exist, the role of the captaincy has largely been superseded by modern
forms of clan leadership and governance. However, the term "captaincy of a clan" is still used in historical and
cultural contexts to refer to this traditional leadership role.
