FRANCIS ANNESLEY (V) (1628-C.1695)

Scope and Content

Francis Annesley (V) was the eldest son of Francis Annesley (I), Viscount Valentia by his second marriage. Although not Francis (I)'s eldest son, Francis (V) was given property in

Co. Down by his father, and received property in Yorkshire from his sister (for which see E6/7/10D and E6/8/1D respectively).

The date of Francis (V)'s death is not known: E6/7/10D/36 suggests that he was dead in 1693/4, but E6/1/14L/1 below

that he was still alive in 1695.

After the extinction of the male line of Arthur (I), it was Francis (V)'s descendants who inherited the viscountcy, and still hold it now.

The only deed on Francis (V) here concerns the marriage of his daughter Deborah.
