Supple (Aghadoe)

The Supple family were said to be descended from the De Capells of county Cork and they were related to the Smythes of Ballynatra, county Waterford. In 1714 Richard Supple married Mary Fitzgerald and they had an only son, Richard Supple of Aghadoe, who married Mary Brooke, niece and heiress of Wheeler Brooke of Great Oakley Hall, Kettering, Northamptonshire . Their son, Richard De Capell Brooke, 1st Baronet, born 1758, inherited both the Supple and Brooke estates. There was also an Edward Supple living at Supple's Court near Castlemartyr, county Cork, in the mid 18th century. Another Edward Supple maried Letitia, eldest daughter of Viscount Gough in 1836. He later took the additional name of Collis. see
