The de Vesci papers


In stock


The de Vesci papers are one of the most significant family archives in public ownership in Ireland. Appertaining in the first instance to the Vesey estates in County Laois, sections of the archive also concern these families’ interests in counties Dublin, Cork, Limerick, Carlow, Galway, Kilkenny, Offaly, Mayo, Roscommon, Waterford, Wexford and a variety of locations in England. Nationally, at least two of the Vesey forebears (Archbishop John Vesey and Denny Muschamp) were major figures in Irish history.

This calendar, while containing much interesting and useful material in its own right, will further assist historians, genealogists and others interested in the history of early modern and modern Ireland to use the collection, now in the National Library of Ireland.
