William Skeffington ( - 1535):
Soldier


William Skeffington came to Ireland in 1530 as Lord Deputy, but he was recalled in 1532 because of accusations of abuse of power. He returned again as Deputy in 1534 and was knighted. He besieged the castle at Maynooth a year later, and after nine days the garrison surrendered and its surviving defenders were executed. This led to the submission of the rebellious lords Conn O'Neill and Silken Thomas Fitzgerald.
