Jenkin Conway.
His father had been granted Killorglin, Co.Kerry, in 1587.
It was apparently him (not his father) who had the grant of Killorglin confirmed by patent, 11th James I (March 1613 to March 1614).
He built a new castle at Killorglin and re-named it Castle Conway.
He mar Avice Dalton [or Avis, of Knockmore, Co.Waterford].
He was bur in the chapel at Castle Conway.
See his now-vanished tomb at Castle Conway.
Jenkin and Avice had issue:

  1. Edward Conway,
    of Castle Conway,
    mar Catherine Ryeves [possibly a descendant of Edward III but not proved],
    he was bur in the chapel at Castle Conway,
    see his now-vanished tomb at Castle Conway,
    had issue:

    1. Avice Conway [or Avis],
      "Avicia" in the Latin on her tomb,
      would be after grandmother,
      mar perhaps around 1660 to Capt. Robert Blennerhassett and had issue.

Inscription on the Conway-Blennerhassett tomb at Castle Conway.
This recalls Jenkin and Edward Conway, grandfather and father of Avice Conway: "Jenkin et Edwardus Conway".
