Owen IV Wynne: Birth: 1723. Death: 19 MAR 1789
Hannah Wynne: Death: 1798
Note: Colonel Owen Wynne III (c.1686-1755).
When Owen Wynne III succeeded his uncle in 1737 he was the first of the Wynnes to combine in one ownership the family lands in Counties Leitrim, Cavan and Sligo. ... [As has been seen], as soon as he was able to serve the Crown, that is at the age of 19 or 20, he joined the army, bought a company two years later and served several years in Flanders. ... He married his first cousin Catherine, daughter of Colonel John Ffolliott of Donegal and his wife Lucy, daughter of Owen Wynne I. Owen III and Catherine had three sons, James, Owen (later Owen IV) and John, and two daughters, Lucy and Hannah. Hannah in 1743 married William Ormsby, MP, of Willowbrook (three miles from Sligo, on the road to Glencar). She thus became an ancestress of the Ormsby-Gore family. Owen III was High Sheriff of Co. Sligo in 1723 and again in 1745, and he filled the same office in Co. Leitrim in 1724. He died at the age of 79 in 1755. His wife, Catherine, died in 1778. ...
Owen III's eldest son, James, died in 1748, eight years before his father's death. He was MP for Co. Sligo from 1737 to the time of his death. He married Susanna, eldest daughter and co-heiress of Sir Arthur Shaen, 2nd and last baronet of Kilmore, Co. Roscommon, but they had no children. This marriage was hardly a success ..., [as there was] a lawsuit of 1745 where the plaintiff was Susanna Wynne and the defendant her husband, James Wynne. ... Owen Wynne III was a colonel in the army ..., [as probably was his second son, Owen IV, and certainly his third son, John. Colonel John Wynne] ... was MP for Sligo from 1751 to 1760 and again from 1769 to 1778 and for Co. Leitrim from 1761 to 1778. He died unmarried.
Owen III died in 1755 and was succeeded by his second son, Owen IV.
