Your Rockfort House family is well documented as they held lands in Springfield, Cork for over 100 years. We (Eileen and I) think that they are directly related to my husband's line who owned property NE of Springfield(which itself is just north of Bandon, Cork) in an area called Dunkarene.The name of the estate that my husband's family lived on was called CorranHouse. In the deed of indemnity for Corran House that was signed ca 1794 (myhusband's family has the original document), Thomas Hornibrook, Tanner of Springfield is mentioned as one of the interested parties regarding these lands. Although, we believe that the lands were leased by my husband's ancestor John Hornibrook, there was a very close relationship between the two men. John's eldest son is named, Thomas Hornibrook and referred to as Thomas, Jr. At first I thought that Thomas Hornibrook of Springfield was John Hornibrook's father, however we found the Memorial of Deed that states that Thomas had only one son and that is John Thomas of Springfield. Also,the dates didn't work out for John Hornibrook to be Thomas' son. Looking at other memorials, it appears that John Hornibrook and ThomasHornibrook of Springfield may have leased property in Cork City prior totheir move to Dunkareen and Springfield, respectively. It would be veryhelpful if we could determine who Thomas Hornibrook was married to and then we might be able to find his marriage record in Cork City. You will also note within the descendancy notes that I have sent you, that a man named Samuel Hornibrook of Kemegaragh (sic) is mentioned. KemegaraghHouse was located in the same area as Rockfort House. Again, we can't provethe relationship between the Kemegaragh Hornibrook line and the RockfortH's, but we believe that Samuel and Thomas were either brothers, cousins or nephew and uncle. It's so frustrating considering the state of the Irishrecords to try and figure these relationships out.
Not proven yet
Thomas and his brothers? apparently descended from Richard Hornibrook (ca. 1640) who was in the Life Guard of King Charles II. It is rumoured that Richard married the King's illegitimate daughter while exiled in Holland. Richard was awarded lands in Cork, Ireland for his loyalty to the king. It is through this person's son(s) that all the Irish Hornibrooks are believed to be descended.
Apparently, Guy Hornibrook ( son of Richard) had a sword which is in the possession of Anne Hornibrook, who moved to Australia in the late 1800's.
There are several main lines and our group has been pooling our information trying to link all the various branches together. It is thought that the oldest line started with Richard Hornibrook, armspainter, in Exeter, England. His son, also Richard, was with Charles II while he was in exile in Holland. He returned to England with Charles II at the time of the Restoration. There is a family story that Richard married the natural daughter of Charles II. Richard's son (or grandson) was living in Holland and returned with William of Orange, and fought under Orange at the Battle of the Boyne in Ireland and was granted parcels of land around Bandon after William of Orange won the war. This was in the year 1690. However, there were already many Hornibrook families in the Bandon area well before 1690. These are also believed to be descended from Richard.
