Keith, I don't know if I gave you this yet. The info comes from Michael Greene.
Notes from Michael Greene: Godfrey's eldest son, John Greene, had been born in 1655 and around 1678 he married Catherine Horsey, daughter of the late Captain Anthony Horsey of K There had been a wrangle over the ownership of the property but the upshot was that it was left to his son, also Anthony, who was only seven at the time of his father's death. We learn this from a 1685 Chancery Bill 13 in which Anthony, then nineteen, is suing his mother's brother, Pierce Power, for monies that he claimed Pierce had used to his own advantage while acting as Trustee of the Horsey estate. Pierce was also acting as guardian to Anthony and his sisters.
In his defence Pierce mentions that in 1673 and '74 he had 'demised said lands to John Greene of Kilmanahan at a rent of £40 per annum'. ( John was then eighteen and did not marry Catherine for another five years. It appears that Pierce demised Kilcroney to John Greene after Captain Anthony's death)
All of which to say that we know Catherine's mother was named Power.
