Title: The Westport Chalice: Made by Peter Brown of Westport, fo r the Austin Convent of Murrisk, in 1724
Author: Martin J. Blake
Publication: Journal of the Galway Archaeological and Historical Society , Vol. 14, No. 3/4 (1929),
Text: Lord Sligo informs me that the chalice was bought about 5 5 years ago?i.e., about 1874?by George 3rd Marquess of Slig o, from a Dublin dealer, who told the Marquess that the Pet er Brown on the inscription was an ancestor of his. Now Pet er Brown of Westport, who was a Catholic, was an ancestor o f the Marquess
: he died in January 1724. At that time March was reckone d the first month of the year, and January the eleventh mon th, so that Peter Brown of Westport could well have cause d the chalice to be made in 1724. On the other hand the term
"Dominus"* used in this inscription is the description usua lly applied only either to a priest or some person of title , such as a peer, and Peter Brown of Westport
was neither priest nor peer; this would indicate that the P eter Brown who caused the. Chalice to be made was a pries t of that name, and not Peter Brown of Westport. However, i n my opinion, the Peter Brown of the chalice was Peter Brow n of Westport, Lord Sligo's ancestor, for the reason state d above.
