  • Ware, Sir James, an eminent Irish antiquary, the writer on the antiquities, history, and biography of Ireland whose works have been most largely drawn upon by subsequent authors, was born in Castlestreet, Dublin, 26th November 1594. [His father, Sir James Ware, came to Ireland in 1588, in the train of Sir William Fitz William, Lord-Deputy. Amongst other appointments, he secured a patent for the lucrative post of Auditor-General of Ireland, which, with the interval of a few years during the Commonwealth, continued in his family for three generations. He was knighted by James I., and in the Parliament of 1613 sat as member for Mallow. "Having lived a very strict and truly religious life, he died suddenly (which was his constant wish for many years before) as he was walking home through Fishamble-street to his house in Castle-street, in 1632." The family mansion of the Wares stood in Castle-street, on the ground now occupied by Hoey's-court and the Castle steps.] Young James Ware was carefully educated by his father, entered Trinity College in 1610, remained there six years, took out his M.A. degree, and then resumed his home studies. His literary and antiquarian tastes were fostered by friendships with Dr. Ussher, then Bishop of Meath, and Daniel Molyneux, "a very curious antiquary, between whom the similitude of their studies had cemented a strict friendship." " At an early age," says Harris, " his father, thinking it convenient he should marry, procured him a match to both their satisfactions. It was Mary, the daughter of Jacob Newman of the City of Dublin, Esq. But this alteration in his condition did not in the least take him off from his beloved studies. .... etc.

Sir James Ware, Auditor-General of Ireland

by Mark H. Welchley, August 2010

Sir James Ware; born 1568 possibly in Yorkshire, England. He died 14 May 1632, Dublin, Dublin, Ireland. He was buried 14 May 1632 at St. or Werburghs Church, Castle, St., Dublin, Ireland. He married 1589 or 1590 in Dublin, Ireland, Mary Briden, the daughter of Ambrose and Anne Briden (Bryden) of St. Edmundsbury, Suffolk, England. She was born 23 Dec 1566 at St. James, Bury St. Edmunds, Suffolk, England. She died 3 Dec 1632 in Dublin, Dublin Ireland. She was buried 5 Dec 1632 at St. Werburgh’s Church, Dublin, Ireland.

Children: (The order and dates of birth vary considerably between various family trees and some children are added like Peter and Robert who are certainly not part of his family. Sir James Ware seems to have had 5 boys and 5 girls. Only 4 boys are listed below because there was a son named John born before the listed John who died young. The list below needs additional confirmation of birthyears.)

1. Ann Ware: born 1592 in Dublin, Dublin, Ireland. She died 16-17 Oct 1621 in Dublin, Ireland. She married 7 Jun 1614, Emanuel Downing. (See His Profile)

2. Sir James Ware: born 26 Nov 1594 at Castle Street, Dublin, Ireland. He died 1 Dec 1666 in Dublin and was buried at St. Warboroughes Church, Castle St., Dublin, Ireland. At the age of 16 he entered Trinity College, in Dublin and studied there for six years. He married (first) Elizabeth Newman 31 Dec 1620 in Dublin, Ireland. She was the daughter of Jacob Newman. He spent the years 1626-29 in England and was influenced to study history by the Usher, Bishop of Meath. He was knighted in 1629 and inherited his father’s estates in 1632. He was very interested in the history of Ireland and wrote in Latin in 1633, History and Antiquities of Ireland. He was also the author of History of the Bishops of Ireland.” As a fervent Protestant he also wrote “Hunting of the Romish Fox, and the "Quenching of Sectarian Firebrands." During the Parlimentary period he was arrested, held in the town of London, deprived of his office and exiled to France. His office was restored under the Restoration of the monarchy and he led a private life in Ireland until his death.

3. John Ware: born about 1596 in Dublin, Dublin, Ireland. He died in 1640, murdered by Holliwood (Hollywood) of Artaine. He married, about 1620 in Dublin, Ireland, Elizabeth Piers (Pierce) the daughter of Henry Pierce Esq. of Tresternaugh, Counth Westmeath, Ireland. There was a Holliwood family of Artaine near Dublin, but details of the murder are elusive.

4. Mary Ware: born about 1595 or about 1604 in Dublin, Dublin, Ireland. She died 6 Jul 1620. She married, about 1615 in Dublin, Ireland, Christopher Conway Esq. of Rathmines.

5. Russell Ware: born about 1596 or about 1609 probably in Dublin, Dublin, Ireland. She married, before 1616 in Dublin, Ireland, Humphrey Reynolds, Esq. of Loughscurie, County Leitrim, Ireland

6. Cecilia Ware: born abt 1598 in Dublin, Dublin, Ireland, She died 20 Mar 1665/66 in Dublin, Ireland. She married Sir Dudley Loftus, Nov 1626 in Kilyan (Killian), Meath, Ireland.

7. Joseph Ware: born abt 1599 in Dublin, Dublin, Ireland. He died 26 Feb 1647/48. He married about 1622 in Dublin, Ireland, Katherine Crofton. He is also reported to have married Katherine (or Mary) Dunville, daughter of Gilbert Dunville, Gentleman of Dublin. Joseph Ware received a Bachelor of Arts Degree at Trinity College in Dublin. He was a clerk in Holy Orders.

8. Arthur Ware: born 1600 in Dublin, Dublin, Ireland. He died 26 Feb 1647/48. He received a Master of Arts Degree at Trinity College, in Dublin, Ireland. Some family trees give his birth as 1509, which is impossible. The similarity of the date of death to that of his brother Joseph create some suspicion that the reported data may be in error.

9. Martha Ware: born about 1604 in Dublin, Dublin, Ireland. She married about 1632, in Dublin, Ireland, William Piers.

[Note: Robert Gene Ware: born 1589 in Yorkshire, England has been listed as a son of Sir James Ware. He died 1665 in Gloucester, VA. He married Jane Wade She was born 1589 in England, daughter of William W. Wade and Anne Waller. It is unlikely that his father was actually James Wade, because he is not listed on James Ware’s funeral certificate nor on the certificate of his wife.]

   James Ware was reportedly born in Yorkshire, England, and attended the best schools in England.  No source gives the names of any of these schools.  His father is said to have had an influential position with the Queen Elizabeth I’s court, and thus able to gain a position for his son James.  At the age of 20 James Ware moved to Ireland and became Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Sir William Fitzwilliam.  Six years after his arrival in Ireland he became clerk of the Common Pleas in the Exchequer. He was, in 1588 appointed auditor-general for the Kingdom of Ireland.   
   On 6 Jun 1640, at the age of 42, James Ware was knighted by King James I.  He was given a family patent on the office of auditor general and his family held this post for almost a century.  His coat of arms is described as “Gold two lions passant azure a bordure also azure charged with nine escallops gold”.  No crest was allowed. 
   Sir James Ware became wealthy and purchased considerable land in and around Dublin.  
   On a list of members sent to the Irish Parliament by the constituencies of the County of Cork Ireland, May 1, 1613, was Sir James Ware, Knight, of Macestown, representing Mallow, incorporated 27 Feb 1612.  It was at Woodford, near Mallow, where his brother John Ware and his family settled. 
   In 1621, following the deaths of his daughters Mary and Anne, he made a benevolence for a new Bible and Services Book to St. Werburgh’s Church in Dublin.  He died suddenly while walking home through Fishamble Street to his mansion on Castle Street.  His will mentions estates in the county of Longford at Cloughred, in Tipperary, at Jamestown, at the Abby of Derge and at Macetown in County Meath.  
   The Irish funeral certificate of Sir James Ware, Knight indicates that he was auditor to His Majesty’s Revenue and that he died 14 May 1632 and was buried at St. Werburghs Church, Dublin.  This certificate also indicated that he married Mary, the daughter of Ambrose Brydon of Bury St. Edmunds, in the County of Suffolk, England, and by her had four sons and five daughters. 
   St. Werburghs Church is located near Dublin Castle in Dublin, Ireland.  It was built in the 12th century.  A fire severely damaged the church in 1754 that left only the tower and façade intact.  The original spire was removed in 1836 because British officials decided it would be a good location for snipers to shoot at soldiers or officials in nearby Dublin Castle.
