  • Notes 
    • From Burke's: Resided in Shandrome, Co. Cork; Ballydarton, Co. Carlow; in Army of Lord Protector Cromwell.

      In letter of 8 Aug 1644 from Lords Inchiquin and Broghill of Youghal, Cork to Lord Esmond of the Duncannon garrison, then navy Captain Henry Smithwick is sent to communicate resolutions.

      From Patrick Little's book "Lord Broghill and the Cromwellian Union with Ireland and Scotland", Roger Boyle (Lord Broghill) joined forces with Parliament and Oliver Cromwell in August 1649 and commanded the local forces whose aim was to put down Catholic insurgence. Joshua Boyle, Major Francis Foulke, and then Captain Henry Smithwick appear to have been influential in bringing Lord Broghill over.
