    The castle is about three miles from the town of Rosscarbery. The original medieval fortress was erected in the 1400's by Randal Oge BARRY. It was the most westerly stronghold for the powerful Norman family of BARRY. The BARRY family held vast areas of County Cork from Midleton to Rosscarbery.
    In 1602, the castle ws surrendered to Elizabethan forces in accordance with the Treaty of Kinsale. It was regranted to David BARRY. David died in 1616 and his grandson, David BARRY, inherited the castle.
    In 1641, David BARRY sold Rathbarry Castle in County Cork, Ireland to Sir Arthur FREKE.
    In 1642, the Rathbarry Castle was beseiged by an Irish force led by the McCarthy Clan, who had already taken Ross. The siege lasted ten months. Help arrived under the leadership of Sir Charles VAVASOUR and Captain JEPHSON. All of those who had taken refuge in the castle were taken to saftey to the nearest walled town of Bandon. The castle was burned to prevent the McCarthy Clan from making use of it.
    The FREKE family eventually returned to their holdings and built a new castle about 1/4 mile from the original Rathbarry Castle. It was situated with a view of Rosscarbery Bay and the coastline. This one was named Castle Freke.
    A Topographical Dictionary of Ireland - 1837, Vol. 2, has, "RATHBARRY, a parish, in the barony of IBANE and BARRYROE, county of CORK, and province of MUNSTER, 4 miles (W.S.W.) from Clonakilty, on the road from Cork to Skibbereen; containing 2748 inhabitants. This place, which is situated on the southern coast, derives its name from an ancient for, of which ther are still some picturesque remains in Lord Carbery's demesne. This fortress, anciently called Rathbarry, now Castle FREKE, was erected in the 15th century by Randal Oge BARRY, and in 1602 was surrendered to Capt. HARVEY for Queen Elizabeth, according to the treaty of Kinsale, and was retained by the English till the breaking out of the war in 1641. Soon after the commencement of hostilities, it was besieged by the insurgents, but was resolutely defended by its proprietor, Arthur FREKE, Esq., who maintained it against all their attacks from the 14th of February till the 18th of October, when it was relieved by Sir Chas. VAVASOUR and Capt. JEPHSON, who conducted the owner and his garrison in safety to Bandon and set fire to the castle, to prevent its being occupied by the enemy. The insurgents, nevertheless, took the castle of Dundedy, which they kept till the spring of the year 1643, when they also obtained possession of the remains of Castle FREKE; but in July they were driven from this place by Col. MYN, who restored the castle and placed in it a garison which retained possession till the arrival of CROMWELL. The parish comprises 4189 statue acres, as applotted under the tithe act: the surface is very uneven, and towards the sea the land is cold and teh soil sandy; but in the centre of the parish and around Miltown, more fertile. The vale in which Miltown is situated is very beautiful and in many parts has been richly planted by Lord Carbery and the incumbent. Castle FREKE, the seat of Lord Carbery, a handsome castellated mansion, erected near the site of the old fortress of Rathbarry, is beautifully situated in a richly improved demesne, comprising 1000 acres, embellished with fine timber and thriving plantations, and with a beautiful and picturesque lake."

Model of aircraft, a de Havilland DH60 Moth named 'Miss Propaganda' placed on headstone. Explanation for plane crash was never discovered. It is believed that a young man whom she was teaching to fly froze on the controls and caused the plane to go into a spin and crashed at the Ngong Airport in Nairobi in front of dozens of spectators. Maïa's photo at left.
    John married 3rd June Weir MOSLEY 1930. June died 1980. Burial in Johannesburg, South Africa.
    In 1920, he renounced his title and changed his name to John Evans CARBERRY by deed poll in Nairobi.
    In 1921, John sold Castle Freke and went to Kenya.
    He became part of the “jet-set” and squandered a lot of the family money.
    According to Tom BYRNE, "When John, the 10th Lord Carbery vacated the building for good, and after various short occupations and several owners it was largely became victim to neglect and scavaging, probably one of the major reasons for it's complete deterioration was the ridiculous, 'Roof Rates Tax' which the Irish government introduced in the late 1940's which, inter-Alia, was a tax on large roofs, particularly unoccupied properties and this led to the destruction of many beautiful castles and large houses around Ireland, castle Freke itself was stripped of it's fittings in 1952 - ironically the year that the latest family owner, Stephen Evans - Freke was born!"

The Hon. Percy Cecil EVANS-FREKE
Bisbrooke Hall
Uppingham, Rutland, England

Lieut.-Colonel the Hon. Percy Cecil EVANS-FREKE, born 19 May 1871, St George Hanover Square District, London, Surrey, England, son of William Charles and Victoria (CECIL) EVANS-FREKE. The Lieut.-Col. died Thursday, 13 May 1915, Frezenburg, France, shot by a sniper. Burial is in Divisional Cemetery, Dickebusch Road, Ypres, France.
    Percy married Eva KIRWAN 24 Jul 1895. She was the daughter of Charles KIRWAN of Dalgan Park.
    Was Captain Leicestershire, I.Y.
    The Lieut. Colonel's obituary, "EVANS-FREKE, Lieut.-Colonel the Hon. Percy Cecil, of Bisbrook Hall, second son of William, 8th Baron Carbery and Lady Victoria Cecil, was born in London May 19th, 1871. He obtained a Commission in the Leicestershire Yeomanry in December 1895, was promoted lieutenant March 1899, captain May 1903, major February, 1905, and succeeded Lieut-Colonel T. E. HARRISON in command of the regiment in 1913. He held the honary rank of lieutenant in the Regular Army for services in the Boer War (1900-1) with the 4th Batt. Imperial Yeomanry (Leicestershire and Derbyshire) for which he received the Queen's Medal with four clasps. Lieut.-Col. EVANS-FREKE married in July, 1895, Eva, fourth daughter of the late Mr. Charles KIRWAN of Dulgan Park, Co. Mayo, and Mrs. Maitland-Kirwan of Gelston Castle, Kirkcudbright. He was a prominent hunting man in the district, being secretary of the Cottesmore Hunt. Proceeding to Flanders November 2nd, 1914, he took part in the later stages of the first Battle of Ypres. He was killed by bullets May 13th, 1915, near Ypres, when the Germans made their second attempt for the Channel Ports, which resulted in a costly failure for the enemy although the British losses totalled frm 12,000 to 15,000 men. Writing of this battle, Sir Arthur Conan DOYLE says in "The British Campaign in France and Flanders":--"All the infantry losses, heavy as they were, are eclipsed by those of the third Cavalry Division (which included the Leicestershire Yeomanry) which bore the full blast of the funal whirlwind, and was practically destroyed in holding it back form Ypres. This splendid division, to whom, from first to last, the country owes as much as to any body of troops in the field, was only engaged in the fighting for one clear day, and yet lost nearly as heavily in proportion as either of the infantry divisions which had been in the firing line for a week. Their casualties were 91 officers and 1,050 men. This will give some idea of the concentrated force of the storm wchich broke upon them on May 12th. It was a most murderous affair, and they were only driven from their trenches when the trenches themselves were blasted to pieces. It is doubtful whether any regiments have endured more in so short a time. The Leicestershire Yeomanry suffered very severely, Col. FREKE and many senior officers wer among the dead and wounded." Several versions have been given of how Col. EVANS-FREKE met his death. The following is that of a reliable eye-witness: ---"I was in the fitght in which Col. FREKE was killed, in fact, I had been in personal touch with him up to five minutes before I saw him fall. Things were rather hot, and I happened to be one of a small party, who, with Col. FREKE, had become detached from the main portion of the squadron who were holding a lenght of trench. We were in touch by signal, however, and a message came across that Major RICARDO was hit. Thereupon Col. FREKE walked out across the open to join the party in the trench about eighty yeards away. He had covered the greater part of the distance when we saw he had been struck in the arm. He still went on to within five or six yards of the trench when he fell." He had been struck again. His soldier servant, who was in the trench, picked him up, but he was dead. His body lies buried in the cemetery close to Breelin Cross-roads, near Ypres. A brave, absolutely fearless soldier, loved by all who knew him. An able commander, unsparing of himself, whose thoughts were always for the comfort and safety of those committed to his care, he sacrificed his life in the noblest cause--in defence of the honour of his country and of those who could not defend themselves.

Although only a generation old, the baronial hall with its mullioned windows, minstrels’ gallery and grand family portraits has the air of great antiquity. Bisbrooke Hall is currently occupied by George’s son, Robert, and his wife Gabrielle and their two children.

She and Thomas appear to have had four children, Thomas, Francis, Mary and Jane, who appear in their grandfather’s Will.
    In 1659, the Census of Ireland listed the lands in each county and the names of those who held title.
