John Greene
greene arms
It would appear that John Greene arrived in Ireland in about 1622 as a letter dated 1624 to the Earl of Cork from John Greene mentions him having having been in Ireland for 2 years. The letter is interesting as it states that John Greene is married to Mrs Rosier and contains a proposition from John Greene to the Earl of Cork regarding the setting up of white cloth manufacturer also known as "Wiltshire Whites" made from wool from Ireland. See "The Lismore papers of Richard Boyle, 1st Earl of Cork, volume 3"

The Journal of the Royal Society of Antiquaries of Ireland, 1904: 3rd April 1633, the Earl of Cork mentions in his diary "Richard Glynn, the Lady Edith Griffith and Edward Moreton conveyed to Sir Charles Coote and his heirs, Monasternagillagh with two plowlands and the tithes of one of them and the rectories or parsonages of Robertstown, Donmoylan, Granshawe and the island of Aghnes in the county of Limerick, which Sir Charles this day offers to sell me (the Earl of Cork) the inheritance, which is in lease to one John Green at £82. The descendants of John Greene would appear to have remained as tenants for on the 13th November 1662, Godfrey Greene obtained a lease for thirty years from the Earl of Cork".

Godfrey Greene


Son of: John Greene
and:  
born: It has been previously suggested 1633 in Aldmonbury, Yorkshire . This is almost certainly incorrect although it has been claimed by previous researchers. However the Godfrey Greene born July 1633 in Almondbury died in August 1633 so would appear to be the wrong Godfrey Greene. It is quite likely that he was born in Ireland as his father is now know to have been in Ireland from about 1622.
  On November 13, 1662, Godfrey leased Old Abbey, near Shanagolden, Co. Limerick. On April 3, 1663 he purchased Old Abbey. He obtained a patent on July 23, 1678 of the castle, town and lands of Ballynemony, Moorestown and other lands in Co. Tipperary. He was also granted Kilmanahan Castle in Co. Waterford.
He died in 1682 possessed of £1,500 in ready money, bonds and other securities for at least £2,000, plate, gold and diamond rings, household furniture to the value of £350, three hundred oxen, one hundred dairy cows and other cows, a great number of calves and yearlings, five thousand sheep, four thousand fleeces of wool and four hundred barrels of corn of various sorts. - Sir Wm. Betham`s Abstract of his Will, 1683.

  Burke's Genealogical and Heraldic History of the Landed Gentry, Volume 1: In May, 1682, is dated the will of Godfrey Greene, Esq. of Kilmanahan, co. Waterford, in which he desires to be buried at Clonmel. He names his sons, John Greene, (to whom he left Moorestown, co. Tipperary,) Godfrey Greene, (to whom he left his signet ring,) Thomas Rodolphus Robert Greene and Richard Greene, and his daughters, Frances Greene, Bridget Greene, Deborah Greene and in a codicil, May 13, he names his grand-child, Mary Pennefather, his daughter Frances, and Francis-Gough. This will was proved I5 May, 1683
  From "Looking Back....." (1980) by Lady Naomi Heydon: Captain Godfrey Greeene was a '49 Officer (see adjudication in his favour, 1649 officers, Roll 1, March 22, 1666). On November 13, 1662, he leased Old Abbey, near Shanagolden, Co. Limerick. On April 3, 1663 he purchased Old Abbey. He obtained a patent on July 23, 1678 of the castle, town and lands of Ballynemony, Moorestown and other lands in Co. Tipperary. He was also granted Kilmanahan Castle in Co. Waterford. He died in 1682 possessed of £1,500 in ready money, bonds and other securities for at least £2,000, plate, gold and diamond rings, household furniture to the value of £350, three hundred oxen, one hundred dairy cows and other cows, a great number of calves and yearlings, five thousand sheep, four thousand fleeces of wool and four hundred barrels of corn of various sorts. - Sir Wm. Betham's Abstract of his Will, 1683. Moorestown Castle is 9 miles north west of Clonmel in Co. Tipperary. The castle of Kilmanahan was erected in the 13th century by the Fitzgeralds of Desmond. The Fittons of Cheshire acquired the estate in 1586. In 1608 Sir James Gough purchased it. Kilmanahan remained in the occupation of the Goughs down to teh Cromwellian confiscations when Patrick Gough was dispossessed. In the next 20 years it had three owners, when in 1678 it was granted to Godfrey Greene, who had served as an officer in the Irish Army of King Charles the First. Kilmanahan lies about a quarter of a mile upstream from Knocklofty on the Suir River. It is beautifully situated on high ground overlooking the river, and in its day must have been very imposing. The Castle is now unoccupied and falling into ruin. It is not far from Clonmel, Co. Waterford.
