Henry Blayney, 2nd Lord Blayney

Born ~1602/5
at Castleblayney (Ireland)
Baron from 11 Feb 1630 [43]
Killed 5 Jun 1646 at the battle of Benburb, Tyrone.

See Ancestry.

In January 1623 he married the Right Honourable Jane MOORE, (2nd daughter of Gerald MOORE, 1st Viscount Drogheda and Mary COLLY, and sister of Sir James MOORE who married Henry's sister Jane BLAYNEY) and had six sons and five daughters! (see [Descendancy]).

Was knighted in his father's life-time (27Mar1626) and became Baron in 1626 and took his seat in the Irish House of Lords 14July1634. He was a commissioned captain of the 97th Foot and kept a little fort at Monaghan.

On 23Oct1641 his castle was attacked by Irish "rebels" under Hugh (Mac-Patrick) MacMaHon (and/or Sir Patrick MacMaHon [471] [707]) but he escaped to Dublin to raise the alarm [18] [471] [473] His wife and children however, were captured and suffered, particularly from being moved constantly while regularly threatened with death. Infant Penelope died after being carried on the captors' pikes. Eventually they were released in exchange for nuns and an officer captured at Drogheda by Lady Blayney's brother [55].

In 1641, Armagh was taken by Sir Phelim O'Nial, who was forced to evacuate, then it was garrisoned by the Earl of Tyrconnel, who was in turn then "surprised and disarmed" by locals. Lord Blayney then took possession of the town and immediately proclaimed for the King (Charles I), but was also "compelled to evacuate it, and retreat with his forces to Londonderry, at that period the last refuge of the Protestants." [263].

Lord Henry Blayney is killed fighting Owen O'Neill at the Battle of Benburb, co Tyrone in 1646, which was a disaster for the Protestant settlers (Planters). No other Irish victory had ever resulted in so complete an annihilation of their enemy. The only Protestant honour earned on that field was by Henry Blayney and his regiment. His reputation and conduct in that battle has been universally praised and from by both sides:

Blackwater River (Benburb) c.1750 (top) & now

  • "And with their pritan mantles, steel morion, and jack
    And with him fierce Blayney and Conway had come
    Few foemen escaped on that well-stricken day;
    O'er hillock and moorland by thousands they lay;
    Fierce Blayney had fallen where he charged by the fen—
    'Twasa comfort he slept by the side of his men!
    ["The Battle of Benburb" [468] (Joyce and Makem)]
  • "The Scottish army was immediately thrown into confusion; the cavalry was at once broken, and, casting the foot into disorder, the rout soon became complete. An English cavalry regiment, commanded by Lord Blayney, was almost entirely cut to pieces." [467]
  • "Sir Henry, second Lord Blayney, lost his life at the fatal battle of Benburg [sic], in the county of Tyrone, at the head of his men..." [484] [485]
  • "The English regiment commanded by Lord Blaney maintained their ground till he and most of his men were cut off." [469] [472]
  • "Lord Blaney's regiment first met the brunt of the Irish onset, and, after a stubborn resistance, was cut to pieces" [475]
  • "The British field-pieces were all captured, and Lord Blayney, their commander, who refused quarter, was killed, gallantly defending them to the last." [471]
  • "The gallant Lord Blaney, at the head of an English regiment, made a noble defence. He fell combating with the most undaunted resolution, and his men maintained their ground till they were hewn to pieces, fighting around their beloved commander" [474] [476]
  • "Three thousand Scotch and English there are lying freshly slain,
    And Blaney at his regiment's head will never charge again!
    " [470] [473]
  • "Next day Neill ordered my Lord Blaney's and captain Hamilton's corps to be interred in Benborbe church with the proper ceremonies." [472] and "O'Neill conveyed his prisoners to a place of security, and buried the bodies of Blaney and Hamilton with military honours"

On 8 December 1665 a Petition to the Duke of Ormond, Lord Lieutenant of Ireland was granted resulting in a pension of �100 being paid out of the Irish Exchequer to the Lady Jane Blayney, widow. [324]


1 Henry BLAYNEY b.1602(5/6); d.5Jun1646 (Benburb, co Tyrone); Bur.CastleBlayney
  Became the 2nd Lord Blayney in 1630 on the death of his father Edward  
 + Jane MOORE (Rt Honourable) b~1598 (Mellefont Abbey, co Louth); d.22Oct1686
   [dau of Sir Garrett (Gerald) MOORE, 1st Viscount Drogheda (1564-1627) and Mary COLLEY (~1570-1654)
    and sister to Sir James MOORE who married Henry's sister Jane BLAYNEY. [434]];

   Jane subsequently married Sir Charles WILMOT [434], Lord President of Connaught.

  2 Garrett (Gerald) BLAYNEY (died at the Hague, unmarried)

  2 John Blayney (died in the West Indies, unmarried)

  2 Lawrence BLAYNEY (died young)

  2 Robert BLAYNEY
    Kevin McKenzie [145] suggests that he didn't die young, but was the Robert Blayney, aka "Mr Blaney", 
    who accompanied Samuel Pepys to Whitehall as Lord Ashley's Secretary. 
    Lord Ashley himself turns out to be distantly related:
      [Lord Ashley later became Charles II's minister the 1st Earl of Shaftesbury who's 3rd wife (Margaret
       Spencer) was sister to the Alice Spencer who married Henry Moore, whose father (Charles) was brother
       to both Sir James Moore (who married Robert's Aunt Jane) and to Jane Moore, Robert's mother.]
    Kevin also believes that Robert married leaving a "widow Blayney from Master Locke's" but no proven children
    (or potential heirs to the Blayney title).  However, his evidence for Secretary Blayney being the son of 
    Henry Blayney is circumstantial and based on moderately close family and political relationships. 
    However, a Robert Blaney "a barrister of the Middle Temple" (so quite probably the same as Lord Ashley's
    Secretary) was tried for involvement in the pro-Monmouth "Rye House Plot". Lord Ashley (Anthony Ashley Cooper)
    the first 1st Earl of Shaftesbury was Monmouth's principal supporter (and escaped to Holland in 1683).  
    In the same year another "Rye House Plotter", Colonel Thomas Walcott was executed whose wife Jane was the 
    "double cousin" of Robert Blayney [145] supporting the contention that Robert, the younger son of the 2nd
    Lord Blayney, did survive into the 1680s and became a barrister with some interesting connections.

    Alternatively, I have suggested that the Secretary to the 1st Earl of Shaftesbury may have been a 
    Kinsham Blayney, most likely Robert Blayney, son of Francis BLAYNEY Esq. of Kinsham.

        MP (Tory) for Hindon 1734-41, MP for City of York 1742-1761.
        Inherited estates of Lord Lanesborough and assumed by Act of Parliament 1750 (and in accordance with
        the testator's injunction), the additional surname and arms of LANE, [229] (legally becoming LANE-FOX
        aka FOX-LANE).
        Created 1st Baron Bingley, co. York 13May1762 (extinct since his father-in-law's death in 1731) [229]
        First to hunt foxes on Bramham Moor [795]
        Possibly the biological father of John BURGOYNE (below) [306] [307]
        BUT this "honour" (if true) is probably better laid at the feet of George's Father-in-law, the first
        Lord Bingley (Robert Bingley), who became John's Godfather and left Anna Maria a considerable 
        inheritance [789]
        Horace Walpole claimed it was Robert Bingley, and it is interesting to see that John's first but 
        illegitimate son was named John Fox!

+??Anna Maria BURGOYNE (mistress), wife of Captain John Burgoyne). Her son the General was claimed by Horace Walpole and others to have been fathered by "Baron Bingley" and as George was not created Baron until 1768, it is more likely that Anna was mistress of Robert BENSON [789]; [790] "The beautiful young wife of a dissipated army captain in debt to a libertine of high rank, might easily enough have become the prey of such a creditor of such a husband" [789] A High Court case was heard between the Burgoynes and Lord Bingley's heirs in 1738 see [792] Another illegitimate child of Robert Benson, Mary Goodricke (née Johnson), has been described as the sister of General Burgoyne.
