Henry Dundas
Son of: Believed to be Francis Dundas of Carramoe and Roscor, Co. Fermanagh (see below)
and:  
born:  
occupation: Rector of Mullingar, Westmeath
died: before 1827
It is believed that Henry Dundas was a descendant of Dundas of Arniston due to the use of family Christian names and the fact that his grandson, John Henry Dundas named his home Arniston.
marriage
  x Arabella Stevens (widow of William Henry Nassau Stevens. Maiden name Hearn) x 11/5/1771 at St. Anne's Dublin
  Arabella had two children from her first marriage; William Henry Ramsey Stephens, born 1766 and Daniel Stephens, born 1767
  Arabella's father was the Venerable Michael Daniel Hearn, Archdeacon of Cashel and her mother was Anne Dowling, sometimes referred to as Dowley. Arabella died 7/9/1827 at Rutland Street, Dublin. She was by then a widow. (Waterford Mail, Sept 1827)
  The following children were born of the marriage between Henry Dundas and Arabella:
1. Anna Maria Dundas born 29/1/1772 died 1774 Cavan
2. Charlotte Dundas born 20/12/1772 died 1772 Cavan
3. Francis Henry Dundas born 17/12/1773 d 1774 Cavan
4. Elizabeth Hannah Dundas born 15/3/1775 Cavan
5. Isabella Maria Dundas born 30/10/1776 Cavan. Died 29/10/1851 Marlborough Street. (possibly Dublin).(King's County Chronicle 1851)
6. Henry Dundas born 2/11/1777 died 20/61795 of consumption, Bloomfield, Cavan
7. Arabella Frances Dundas born 22/10/1780 Cavan died 1808 at Mullingar, Westmeath
8. James Francis Dundas born 22/9/1781 died 1782 Cavan
9. George William Dundas born 27/1/1783, Cavan. Resigned his commission in the 2nd regiment, Royal Lancs, 1805 - Possibly the George William Dundas refered to below:-

The National Register 1808- Essex Assizes March 10th: "Robert Mattison, John Hopkins, and George William Dundas, were indicted for the murder of John Ogleby, on the 7th of February last, at Danbury, in this county. The above three prisoners were the principal and seconds in a duel. They were all very young men and Officers in the 7lst regiment of foot. It appeared, that the deceased had quarrelled with one of the prisoners, when be was in a state of intoxication, and had behaved with the greatest indignity. The consequence was, a challenge, and the deceased was shot through the body. After hearing the evidence, the Lord Chief Baron observed, that there was no proof of identity, and therefore the prisoners must be acquitted; and it was lucky for them the evidence did not reach, as if it did, one at least, if not all, would probably have suffered an ignominious death. The Jury found them— Not Guilty".

10. Anne Charlotte Dundas born 16/10/1784 Cavan
11. Robert Thomas Dundas born 1786 Cavan
12. Francis David Dundas born 20/9/1787 Cavan
It is interesting to note that many of Henry and Arabella's children were named after Arabella's brothers and sisters, For example; Robert Thomas Dundas, born 1787 was probably named after Arabella's brother Robert Thomas Hearn born 1734. Charlotte Dundas born 1772 was probably named after Arabella's sister Charlotte Hearn and Anna Maria Dundas born 1772 was probably named after another of Arabella's sisters Anna Maria Hearn who died in 1757. Charlotte Dundas may well have been named after Arabella's sister Charlotte Hearn who married Edward Reilly in 1766. George William Dundas may have been named after Arabella's brother William George Hearn born 1751.
By highlighting the names in blue that may well have been used from the Hearn family, one can now see that the male names used in this line which do not appear to be connected with the Hearns are; Francis, Henry, James and David. These Christian names are all connected with the Dundas' of Arniston.

Registry of Deeds- "A memorial of a lease dated the 12 October 1737 Whereby George Johnston of Calkeen Co.

Which said deed is witnessed by James Dundass of Roscor, Sir Charles Hume of Enniskillen, Bart. and Robert Rodgers of Blackslee Farmer”.
