RICHARD ORPEN, esq. was the first of the family who settled on the river Kenmare. Hi first resided at Gortkinlinny, and soon afterwards at a strong house he had at the head of the river, (about the year 1670), still known by the name of the White House. This gentleman had a lease for ninety-nine years, renewable for ever, of a great part of the estate of the Hon. H. S. Petty, afterwards Earl of Shelburne, in the county of Kerry, and he acted as agent to the Dowager Lady Shelburne in superintending the iron mines which were at that period worked there, for which purpose he removed from his father's residence at Killorglin. He also took valuable leases of very large tracts of land, in trust for several of the principal Catholic families about the year 1696, as they could not themselves by law hold such leases: all these trusts were punctually and honourably fulfilled, and the descendants of those families still enjoy a great portion of those lands. His connexion with the native houses, through the Stephensons, was one reason for their selecting him as their trustee. He m. Isabella, daughter of the Rev.
