Sir Arthur has been lately mentioned in vol. II. P. 723. - He was descended of an ancient family seated at Raleigh, co. Devon, which produced a Bishop of Exeter in the tenth and a Monkish Obro nicler in the thirteenth centuries, and on the head of which a baronetcy was conferred in 1641. He spent his youth, says Fuller in his Worthies, first in the University, then in the Irish Wars; where, by his valour, he was effectually assistant, first to plough and break up that barbarous Nation by conquest, and then to sow it with seeds of civility, when by James made Lord Deputy of Ireland. He was first so appointed Feb. 3, 1604, by a new commission in 1606, and, having been created.baron of Belfast in 1612, again July 27, 1614. When recalled from Ireland in Nov. 1615, after what would at the present day be considered a very long reign, the King, loath to leave his abilities unemployed, sent him Embassadour to the Emperour, and other German Princes.' His services both in Ireland and abroad are recorded by Fuller with honest applause; and an ample memoir of him is printed in Archdall's Irish Peerage, vol. I. Pp. 320 - 328. He died 5. P. In 1624, when his title became extinct; but his brother Edward, (knighted at' Theobalds, July 18, succeed ing to his estates, was immediately after created Baron Belfast and Viscount Chichester, and on his posterity have been conferred the titles of Earl of Donegal, 1647 Baron Fisherwick, in England, 1790 and Marquess of Donegal, 1791.
