    Co Longford 1600s History:
    Arthur Forbes first shows up as a Captain in Co. Cavan during the initial planting, around 1615. In 1619 he marries Jane Lauder, widow of Claud Hamilton, who was a plantation undertaker in Tullyhunco Barony, Co. Cavan. Lands are held in trust for Hamilton's son Francis.
    Arthur Forbes Sr. received his grant for a plantation in parts of Co. Longford and Co. Leitrim around 1623. The Grant referred to several different areas within Co. Longford, but Parish Clongish in the northwest was especially important. He is created a barronet in 1626, and dies in a duel in 1632 in Hamburg, where he was leading a regiment which had been in the service of Sweden.
    The land was confirmed by Charles I in 1637 to his son, Sir Arthur Forbes.
    Sir Arthur settled in Ireland in 1620, and obtained extensive territorial possessions from the crown in the county of Longford. These were erected into the Manor of Castle Forbes, and Sir Archibald was made a baronet of Nova Scotia in 1628. Four years later, as Lieutenant-Colonel, he accompanied his regiment to take part in the wars of Gustavus Adolphus, and was killed in a duel at Hamburg.
