Account of Sir Arthur Chichester, Lord Belfast, Lord Deputy of Ireland

by Sir Faithful Fortescue

with notes and a memoir of the author by Lord Clermont

Printed for private circulation, C. Whitingham (1858), 52 pp.

Prepared by Michael Steer

A reminder of Devon's 'Golden Age', the author, scion of an ancient Devonshire family, was second son of William Fortescue of Buckland Filleigh and the descendant in the fifth generation of Sir John Fortescue, lord chief justice. In 1598 Fortescue's maternal uncle, Sir Arthur Chichester, who was born in Raleigh near Barnstaple in 1563, went to Ireland in command of a regiment of infantry, and took the author with him, where he distinguished himself. Sir Faithful Fortescue (1581?-1666), was afterwards a royalist commander during the Civil War and wrote this brief memoir of his uncle, compiled after Chichester's death. It was printed by Lord Clermont, This rare and much sought-after book was produced digitally from a copy in the Bodleian Library collection and can be downloaded from Google Books. Google has sponsored the digitisation of books from several libraries. These books, on which copyright has expired, are available for free educational and research use, both as individual books and as full collections to aid researchers.
