Col. Simon Luttrell
Luttrellstown, Co. Dublin, Ireland
b. d. 1698 d. s. p.
son of Thomas Luttrell of Luttrellstown and Barbara Sedgrave
m. Catherine Newcomen (dau. of Sir Thomas Newcomen)
Colonel Simon Luttrell was a man of handsome stature at the time he entered into possession of his ancestral estates. . .he found a wife in Catherine, daughter of Sir Thomas Newcomen of Sutton. Miss Newomen had been brought up as a Protestant, and the marriage was celebrated first by a clergyman of the Established Church, although subsequently by the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Dublin.
Colonel Simon Luttrell appears for many years to have suffered from ill health. In a letter written by him in London on Christmas Eve, 1688, to the young Duke of Ormonde, he states that he had been sick for ten years, and had symptoms of paralysis. He had not been in Ireland for eighteen months, and on the strength of the friendship shown his father by the Duke's father and grandfather, begged the Duke to obtain license for him to go abroad, where he said he desired to be out of the way until things should come to a settlement, and where, if his health permitted, he would seek military employment.
Not many months later he threw in his lot with James II, and in September, 1689, we find him in Dublin, of which he had been appointed Governor, busily preparing the city against the danger of invasion, and "chaining up the streets and making breastworks in order to secure that naked place".
He raised a regiment of dragoons for James, and was appointed by the latter Lord Lieutenant of the County Dublin, which he represented in James' parliament, as well as a privy councillor. He appears to have gone to France before the battle of the Boyne, but returned to Ireland for a short time during the siege of Limerick. He died abroad in 1698.
To Colonel Simon Luttrell's confiscated estates and possessions his brother, Colonel Henry Luttrell, whose life, both public and private, brought his family into great disrepute, succeeded. (3) Part IV.
Simon Luttrell of Luttrellstowne, esq., outlawed & attainted at Kilmainham on 6 Apr 1691 for high treason at Swords on 20 Aug 1689.
All of his lands were forfeited by reason of his attainder
The following document, from the Calendar of Inquisitions. . .by Margaret C Griffith (10)
shows an order of succession of Simon Luttrell's heirs.
Immediately following any potential children (he had none), his brothers and their sons,
is his uncle, Robert Luttrell of Simonstown (also attainted in 1691).
Following Robert, presumably, are cousins of Simon,
sons of the lords of Luttrellstown
