About James Thompson Macky

James Thompson Macky, was born in 1800 and died in 1885. He married Caroline Coffin, daughter of Admiral Frances Holmes Coffin of Devon. He brought the Bank of Ireland in a stage coach from Dublin, escorted by a troop of cavalry. During the Sinn Fein troubles he raised his own troop of horses with which he used to scour the countryside. That was in order to prevent the Feinians burning down out of the way farms and buildings belonging to Protestants. He was once engaged in a very fierce fight at Burn, County Donegal. In his time he travelled over the whole of Europe. He was JP and deputy-lieutenant of County Derry. He had five children and was succeeded by his son, Captain Francis Coffin Macky, JTDL, of the Third Dragoon Guards.
