Hamilton GORGES1

M, #235, b. 1711, d. 8 April 1786

Biography

Hamilton GORGES was born in 1711.2 He married Catherine KEATING on 27 Apr 1734. Hamilton GORGES died on 8 Apr 1786, at age ~75, in Bath, Somerset, England.G1,2
Hamilton Gorges was educated between 1728 and 1732 at Brasenose College, Oxford, England. He was High Sheriff of Co. Dublin 1749; Member of Irish Parliament for Coleraine 1757-60; Swords 1761-8. As a young man he killed Henry St Laurence in a duel in 1731. He lived at St Catharines Grove (formerly called Rathbeale Hall), Dublin.

A website gives the following details: The site of Rathbeale Hall or Rickanhore has been inhabited since early times. Originally it was owned by the Blakeney or Blackeney family. George Blackeney took the King’s side with Luke Netterville in the rebellion of 1641 and was dispossessed of Rickanhore, which was then granted to the Plunkets. The Plunkets lived here until 1751 when the house was sold to Hamilton Gorges to cover debts. Hamilton Gorges had married an heiress named Catherine Keating, and they had the house extensively renovated, and re-named Catherine’s Court. Their only son, Richard had succeeded his father as member of parliament after his father’s death. His only daughter married Sir Marcus Somerville, but they had no male heir. He severed his connection with Swords after the Act of Union, and he donated his £5,000 compensation money to the founding of the Borough School.
In 1805, he rented the house to the Corbally family, and he sold it to them in 1832. The Corbally family changed the name of the house back to Rathbeale Hall, and they effected a number of changes such as the addition of a secondary staircase, bath and billiard room and a dairy.3,1,4
