1594 ca1638, Feb 5
an English born landowner in Ireland. He fled to England when a warrant for his arrest was issued. His case raised the question of the judicial powers of the Irish parliament. Sir Vincent (when and for what reason he was knighted is not known) was a man of considerable enterprise, and was soon remarked as one of the wealthiest men in the south of Ireland, possessing property in England and Ireland, and deriving a large income from his fishery at Courtmacsherry, and from his wool flocks. In spite of his position he bitterly hated Irishmen, and in 1634 he created considerable disturbance in Munster by publishing and circulating, under the form of a letter addressed to the lord deputy, a bitter invective against the whole nation.
