Thomas Luttrell, of Luttrellstown
m. Barbara, dau of Henry Sedgrave, of Cabra
Simon, Henry and Thomas. . .
and, some say
the immigrant to America
Son of Simon Luttrell (b. 1606 d. 1650) of Luttrellstown
“His death took place about 1650, and he left several children, including his heir, Thomas Luttrell, but it was some time before the latter enjoyed the estates to which he had succeeded."
Luttrellstown had been seized by Cromwell’s Parliamentarians before Simon Luttrell’s death. A Col. John Hewson, who had been appointed Gov. of Dublin, was given Luttrellstown, at first on lease, then in 1659 in “fee farm”. Sir William Bury subsequently had occupancy before the Restoration.
During the Commonwealth the Luttrells resided in Dublin, and before the Restoration Thomas Luttrell married a lady belonging to a very old Dublin family, Barbara, daughter of Henry Sedgrave, of Cabra, by whom he had three sons, Simon, Henry and Thomas.”
Owing to the influence of the Duke of Ormonde, whose friendship the Luttrells enjoyed, Thomas Luttrell was one of those mentioned by name in the Act of Settlement as deserving of restoration to his estates, and in 1663 the Commis- sioners of Settlement directed that he should be placed in possession of them.
. . .
Some years later the owner of Luttrellstown took part in a remarkable duel, in which the principals escaped without hurt but the seconds sustained serious injury. Not long before his death in 1673, his son Simon was in the mmatrimonial market, and an agent of the Legge family, who was on terms of intimacy with Thomas Luttrell, the uncle of the owner of Luttrellstown, tried to arrange a match between Simon Luttrell and a Miss Legge – the only blot on the Luttrell escutcheon, in the opinion of this match-maker, being the religion of the family.”
