Capt. THOMAS BLENNERHASSETT, alias HASSETT (b.1549 d.1624)
Poet, historian and writer on Ireland [DNB].
Of Horsford Park, Norwich and of “Castle Hassett” (now Crevenish Castle) at "Hassettstown" (now Ederney), near Kesh in Co.Fermanagh. He studied at the University of Cambridge, probably Trinity Hall 1564, but left without a degree.

Translated Ovid's “De Remedio Amoris” while at Cambridge, unpublished.

Author of:
The Seconde Parte of the Mirrour for Magistrates, written in 1577 while serving as a Captain in the army, at "Guernsey Castle" (Castle Cornet), St.Peter Port, Guernsey. The castle still stands.
The original “Mirrour for Magistrates”, which dealt in verse with episodes of English history from the time of Richard II, had been published in 1559 under editorship of William Baldwin as a continuation of Lydgate's “Fall of Princes”. This work was reprinted in 1563, when Thomas Sackville's famous 'Induction' was first published as the preface, and again in 1571.
In 1574 John Higgins, the poet, published a new series of poems on legends drawn from far earlier history, titled “The First Parte of the Mirrour for Magistrates”. This was reprinted in 1575.
Thomas Blennerhassett's contribution, published by Richard Webster, London, in 1578, was a continuation of Higgins’ book, titled:
“THE Seconde Part of the Mirrour for Magistrates, conteining the falles of the unfortunate Princes of this lande from the Conquest of Caesar, unto the comyng of Duke William the Conqueror. Imprinted by Richard Webster, Anno Domini, 1578”
This edition includes The Complaint of Uter Pendragon (modified for the 1610 edition by Richard Niccols) and King Carassus (pp.185-194 of 1610 edition).
By Ferrers, Cavyll, Chaloner, Phaer, Bladwin, Skelton, Dolman, Sackville, Segar, Dingley, Churchyard & Drayton.
In 1610 Richard Niccols added “A Winter Nights Vision” containing ten additional tragedies, and “Englands Eliza”.
This edition was published as:
"A Mirour for Magistrates: Being a True Chronicle Historie of the Untimely falles of such unfortunate Princes and men of note, as have happened since the first entrance of Brute into this Iland, untill this our latter Age. Newly Enlarged... London: Imprinted by Felix Kyngston, 1610”.
A copy of the 1610 edition displayed at Booth E2 of 42nd Annual New York Antiquarian Book Fair (held 2002 at Park Avenue Armory, New York, USA) contains on the foot of p.194 the signature in ink “Thomas B. Hasset”.
Reprinted 1815 by Joseph Haslewood, Longman, London in 2 vols. (from the 1578 edition, collated with the 1610 edition).
Translated into German by C.R.Laemmerhirt 1909.
Reprinted 1946 as Parts Added to the Mirror for Magistrates”, edited by Lily B.Campbell; Cambridge University Press (with biographical notes).
Another edition was published in 1620.

Author of a poem in praise of Queen Elizabeth I:
"A Revelation of the true Minerva. The effect of this booke. Who on earth be gods : and by what means mortall men may bee made immortall. Psal[m] Lxxxii. God standeth in the congregation of the gods : hee is Judge amongst the gods. 1582.”
This is a pastoral, significant for its experiments in the new verse forms of Renaissance England and its indebtedness to Spenser's Shepheards Calander”. Reprinted, in facsimilie, 1941 with an introduction and biographical note by Josephine Walters Bennett (pub. “Scholar's Facsimiles & Reprints”, New York 1941).
Only one original copy of this work is known to have survived (now in the Huntington Library, USA; previously in the Heber collection); Printed by Thomas Dawson, for Thomas Woodcoke, London.

Proposals by John Blener-hassett and George Rogers, Esquires, for encourageing a linnen manufactory, at Killarney... and planting Protestants there” published c1699
An indication of the date of this document is found in “Kerry in the Eighteenth Century”, in “Selections from Old Kerry Records” by Mary Agnes Hickson (in vol.1 1872 or vol.2 1874 ?)...
p.124 ...They state that they (the memorialists) have rebuilt at their own expense the market-house and Court-house in Killarney, and brought Protestants there from Kilkenny and other parts of of Ireland to establish a linen manufactory. “The latter project,” they continue, “hath been in great forwardness from the encouragement given to our printed proposals, one of which here enclosed wee send your Excellency, although wee are disadvantaged by the insolency of the Irish, who threaten and terrify all that offer to settle in the country an instance of which is given in the enclosed examination of John Barton, who is discouraged  as well as all his friends and dependants...
p.125 ...The examination of John Barton enclosed with the Memorial ran as follows:-
The sd deponent being sworn (before Edward Herbert, Esq., J.P. on the 18th November 1699)
on the Holy Evangelists and examined saith, that he being for several years past a dweller in the city of Kilkenny and County thereof, he saw posted there and in other towns printed papers, wherein Colonel John Blennerhasset and George Rogers, Esq., did propose to sett the forfeited estate of the late Lord Kenmare, being planted with Irish inhabitants unto Protestant inhabitants, and that upon reasonable termes, that having encouragement given him by some of his friends in Kerry to take a  farm on the said estate, he, the deponent, came accordingly into tje country, and being advised to take the farm of Ardglasse, he, the deponent, and his son did on the 16th inst. go to the said land.....etc

Black Jack's Book
John “Black Jack” Blennerhassett was author of two manuscript pedigrees of the Kerry Blennerhassetts. He is said to have commenced his pedigree of the Kerry Blennerhassett family while held prisoner at Galway in 1689-1690, during the 'Williamite' wars. He is known to have compiled c1720-1736 two manuscripts of his genealogies. The older Ms. is believed to be shorter, the second being the more extensive genealogy of Blennerhassett and related Kerry families that became known as “Black Jack's Book”.
The first of these manuscripts survives, written in part of an 18th century account book. This may be Black Jack’s personal Account Book, or his genealogical notebook may have later been reused by another as an account book. The document is held at the Public Record Office of Northern Ireland (Manuscript D680/3/1) under the description: D.680 “Account Book, with genealogical notes on the Blennerhassett family, relating to roads in the Ardraw area, Co.Kerry” (late 18th century).
This MS is listed in “Hayes Manuscript Sources for the History of Irish Civilization”.
The location of the later, complete, manuscript of “Black Jack’s Book” is unknown to me, but c1858-1872 it was the property of John Hurly of Fenit House, near Tralee, Co.Kerry.
John Hurly, who died in 1878, was son-in-law to James Franklin Fuller the Co.Kerry architect, historian & genealogist (who remodelled Ballyseedy House in the 1880s). This Ms. appears not to be at the National Library of Ireland (NLI) or at the National Archives in Dublin.
Blennerhassett & related pedigrees extracted by S.Burgoyne in 1921 from the text of “Black Jack's Book”, are in Ms. vol.562 (about 50 pages) at the Genealogical Office of Ireland, in the National Library of Ireland, Dublin (also available on LDS microfilm No.0100151, item 3, filmed 1949).
The original c1720-1736 Ms. Blennerhassett genealogy “Black Jack's Book” was transcribed in 1855 by Kerry Historian & Genealogist Ven. Rev. Arthur Blennerhassett Rowan D.D. (1800-1861) of Belmont, Co.Kerry, Archdeacon of Ardfert.
The location of the original Rowan Ms is unknown to me, but a photocopy is Ms.5629 at the National Library of Ireland, Dublin (but when I looked it had been misfiled as MS Ref: 4112 which is something else entirely!). This is also listed in “Hayes Manuscript Sources for the History of Irish Civilization”.
The original Ms. he borrowed from John Hurley of Fenit House, Tralee, another Blennerhassett descendant.
A brief letter of 25.6.1858 from Rev.A.B.Rowan to Sir Bernard Burke Ulster King of Arms, discussing this loan, is in a scrapbook of genealogical items at the library of the Irish Genealogical Research Society (IGRS), London.
A second handwritten copy of the c1720-1736 Ms. “Black Jack's Book” was transcribed by Mary Agnes Hickson, another prominent Kerry Historian & Genealogist, prior to publishing same as “The Blennerhassett Pedigree, A.D. 1580-1736” in her “Selections from Old Kerry Records” vol.1 1872, pp.33-108. The Hickson Ms. was acquired by genealogist Rev. Sir Henry Lyttelton Lyster Denny, MA (Dublin), 7th Baronet of Castle Moyle (1878-1953), of London, and in 1921 presented by him to the library of the Society of Genealogists London. There it remains (ref: Ac3857), recently rebound.
Of these two, I find the Rowan copy to be more accurate and precise than the Hickson copy.

Author of:
Poem “The Desert Isle” written in Canada (in 1822?) some years after her mansion on Blennerhassett Island was destroyed by fire in 1811. This is sometimes referred to, incorrectly, as “The Deserted Isle”.
Her volume of poems “The Widow of the Rock and Other Poems, by a Lady” was published anonymously, printed by E.V.Sparhawk, Printer, Montreal, Quebec, Canada in early April 1824. The volume includes her poem “The Desert Isle”. This book, her only published work, is the first collection of poems to be published in Canada (the second being “The Charivari; or Canadian Poetics, by Launcelot Longstaff”, published 28-Apr-1824). Because of this she is sometimes called “The Mother of English-Canadian Poetry”, despite (according to “Some Notes on the Montreal Literary Scene in the Mid-1820s”, by Mary Lu MacDonald) most of the poems referring to places and events in England and the United States, not in Canada. A microfiche of her book was made by the Canadian Institute for Historical Microreproductions, 1983, CIHM/ICMH Microfiche series, No. 36184 (3 fiches).
At publication in 1824 her poems were extensively reviewed in “The Canadian Magazine” and also “The Canadian Review” and “The Scribbler”.
The Desert Isle - with Thirty-five Unpublished Poems by Margaret Blennerhassett” by Ron F. Hendricks (poet, playwright & publisher), pub.2003 by Hendricks House II, Atlanta, Georgia, includes the original content of “The Widow of the Rock and Other Poems, by a Lady”, including “The Desert Isle” but excluding three poems that Mrs. Blennerhassett appended to her book, declaring they were the work of another author, not herself. These are presented by Hendricks in a new format, with the addition of 35 of her previously unpublished poems. These have been transcribed by Hendricks from Mss. in Margaret's handwriting, now among the “Blennerhassett Family Papers” (Ref: A0136, 3 folders) at the “Missouri Historical Society”, St.Louis; The Introduction and Afterword to the book tell the Blennerhassett Island story.
These poems also feature in “Poems by the Late Mrs Harman Blennerhassett”, an undated Ms. of that title compiled by her son Joseph Lewis Blennerhassett & arranged by Mrs Therese Martini Byron Blennerhassett, wife of her husband’s distant cousin Richard Spotswood Blennerhassett. Margaret was author of a Ms. booklet “The Emigrant's Guide”, c1820s, and these two Mss. are among the “Blennerhassett Papers” formerly at Campus Martius Museum, Marietta, Ohio but now at the “Ohio Historical Society”, Columbus, Ohio; they have been microfilmed.

Shortly before his death Sir Rowland Blennerhassett was by some wrongly credited with authorship of what at the time appeared to be an interview with the German Kaiser Wilhelm II, reported on 28-Oct-1908 in British newspaper "The Daily Telegraph", creating a political stir in the UK and constitutional crisis in Germany.
This description is from Wikipedia:

"The Daily Telegraph Affair was the uproar that followed the 28 October 1908 publication in British newspaper The Daily Telegraph of comments by German KaiserWilhelm II intended to improve German-British relations. It was a major diplomatic blunder that worsened relations and badly hurt the Kaiser's reputation; after that he played a much smaller role in deciding foreign policy. The episode had a far greater impact in Germany than overseas.

The Telegraph presented what appeared to be an interview with the Kaiser. It was in fact the reworked notes by British Army officer Edward Montagu-Stuart-Wortley of conversations he had with Wilhelm II in 1907. The Telegraph sent the "interview" to Wilhelm II for approval, who in turn passed it to Chancellor Bernhard von Bülow, who later stated that he was too busy to edit the document, though Bülow's critics charged that he did not wish to challenge the Kaiser. Instead Bülow passed it on to the Foreign Ministry for their review, which apparently did not happen. It included wild statements and diplomatically damaging remarks, the most infamous of which was: "You English are mad, mad, mad as March hares. What has come over you that you are so completely given over to suspicions quite unworthy of a great nation?

Wilhelm had seen the interview as an opportunity to promote his views and ideas on Anglo-German friendship, but due to his emotional outbursts during the course of the interview, he ended up further alienating not only the British, but also the French, Russians, and Japanese. He implied, among other things, that the Germans cared nothing for the British; that the French and Russians had attempted to incite Germany to intervene in the Second Boer War; and that the German naval buildup was targeted against the Japanese, not Britain.

The British leadership had already decided that Wilhelm was somewhat mentally disturbed, and saw this as further evidence of his unstable personality, as opposed to an indication of official German hostility.

The Daily Telegraph crisis deeply wounded Wilhelm's previously unimpaired self-confidence, and he soon suffered a severe bout of depression from which he never fully recovered. He lost much of the influence he had previously exercised in domestic and foreign policy.

The effect in Germany was quite significant; severe embarrassment was followed by serious calls for the Kaiser's abdication. The conservative Junker politician Elard von Oldenburg-Januschau was the only member of the Reichstag to defend the Kaiser throughout the Affair. Wilhelm kept a very low profile for many months after the Daily Telegraph fiasco, slumping into a deep depression, never fully recovering from the humiliation. He later exacted his revenge by forcing the resignation of the Chancellor Bülow, who had abandoned the Emperor to public scorn by not having the transcript edited before its German publication. Bulow recalled in his Memoirs that: "A dark foreboding ran through many Germans that such...stupid, even puerile speech and action on the part of the Supreme Head of State could lead to only one thing - catastrophe".

ROSANNA "ROSE" Aimée BLENNERHASSETT (b.1843 d.1907) "Sister Aimée"
Pioneer nursing sister at Umtali, Manicaland, East Africa 1891-1893.
Rosanna "Rose" Aimée Blennerhassett was born 12-May-1843 at Paris, France of a prominent Irish Roman Catholic family,
baptised on 17-Jul-1843 at Sainte-Madeleine, Paris.
She had one sibling, her brother Rowland Blennerhassett, Bart. M.P. born 5-Sep-1839 in Ireland.

"A Letter from Lisbon" by Rose Blennerhassett

an article in "The Argosy" monthly magazine (motto: "Laden with Golden Grain")
1885 "Summer Number" (published in between the June & July issues) pp.43-52;
edited by Mrs Henry Wood, published by Richard Bentley & Son, London.
Magazine issued monthly, also semi-annually bound in hardback, this appearing in vol. 39, January to June 1885
NOTE: The "Summer Number" is bound in that volume but was omitted from the "Contents" list.
"A Letter From Lisbon" begins: "I will spare you all account of my journey, which was prosperous and uneventful. You know that the sea-gods are always propitious to me, and even the unruly Bay [of Biscay] was on its best behaviour..."
Rose Blennerhassett first visited Lisbon October 1884 to 1885 and there wrote this piece for "The Argosy"; presumably it was during that visit she learned the Portuguese language.  When in 1890 she departed England to nurse at Johannesburg Hospital, instead of joining S.S. Spartan (bound for Durban) at Southampton as did her fellow nurse Lucy Sleeman, she left earlier, travelling overland via Paris to join the ship at Lisbon because "I was a bad sailor, and wished to avoid the terrible bay [of Biscay]...
In 1891, while travelling with Lucy from Portuguese Beira to Umtali in Manicaland, Rose was able to use her knowledge of the Portuguese language to their advantage.

"Graphic Sketches of Mining Life"

While at the nurses' home in Johannesburg 1890-91 Rose Blennerhassett contributed "Graphic Sketches of Mining Life" to the newspaper "Digger's News".
History of "Diggers' News":
" Within a short time after the establishment of Johannesburg in 1886, a number of newspapers appeared that had close ties with the mining industry. The first is considered to be the Digger's News, sold at sixpence a copy from the printing works in Market Street from 24 February 1887 and consisted of four pages mostly filled with advertisements. A day later The Mining Argus appeared. The offices of the bi-weekly Argus consisted of a stretch of canvas over a wooden frame and a copy was sent to Pretoria by horseback where the paper was printed. During the journey some of the copy often got lost, resulting in a loss of revenue for advertisements not printed. The Standard and Transvaal Mining Chronicle began in March 1887 and later amalgamated with the Diggers' News, to be followed by The Transvaal Observer." [Media Studies: Media History, Media and Society" edited by Pieter J. Fourie, pub. by Juta Education, Capetown 2001, vol.1 p.40].

Author of "Monument", novel published by "Now or Never Publishing Company", Canada, 2008 (paperback)
ISBN/EAN: 978-0973955842
Publisher's Description: A penetrating and unflinching examination of the modern Canadian male, Monument is told through the eyes of Seth Wilhelm, a talented young hockey player whose career is cut short by injury, sending him spiralling out of control. A failed stint at college sets the stage for a second fall from grace, a car accident which claims the life of his new girlfriend, leaving Wilhelm himself to blame. Using his undisclosed innocence as the impetus to piece his life back together and move on with his once promising career, albeit in a washed-up senior men's league, Seth soaks up the Vancouver nightlife--the women, the liquor, the drugs, the fights--all in an effort to mask his survivor's guilt and an early childhood trauma. If there's hope for this antihero, it must come in the form of something monumental, a communion he's desperately in search of before he finally loses it all.
