Excerpt from The Savages of the Ards

English and even American branches of the savage Family. In this volume our aim is to treat solely of the Family founded in the ards by william, baron savage, in a.o. 1177, which has proved the most eminent and most durable of all the offshoots of the historical house of the savages, earls rivers; to correct errors into which we may have fallen in the former work; and to add to what we have already recorded a mass of fresh information with regard to the Ulster savages which has come into our hands since The Savages of the A rds was printed.

In compiling the former history the Editor found it impossible to obtain much information about the portaferry Family and its branches. This was partly owing to the fact that the heads of this Family were unaware of the numerous documents in their possession bearing upon the family history which lay unheeded at portaferry house and elsewhere. All the help they believed it in their power to give they had freely afforded the Editor in his researches; but it was not until after the book had been printed that the existence of SO many and valuable papers became known. When they were generously placed at the disposal of the Editor, much light was immediately thrown on the portaferry history; and since then more papers have been discovered and more and more information gleaned by colonel nugent OF portaferry and Mr. Edmond H. S. N ugent, to whom the Editor is deeply indebted for most valuable help and cooperation. The reading of numerous Wills, and the valuable notes of the late Mr. F rith-barry.
