Colonel John Hurley
Colonel Hurley was a son of John Hurley, and a grandson of another John Hurley, a younger son of Sir Thomas Hurley of Knocklong, County Limerick, and Joanna, daughter of John Brown, of Mount Brown, County Limerick. He served in the army of King James II in Ireland, and afterwards became a Rapparee.
Along with fellow raparees Colonel Dermot Leary, Captain Edmond Ryan, Captain Matthew Higgins and John Murphy, he issued a proclamation in December 1694, attacking all those not loyal to James II, offered a reward of two hundred pounds to anyone who brought to them any member of King William's privy council and a further fifty pounds for any chief officers still in arms against king James. He may have later escaped to France and served in Berwick's Regiment. (p. 92)
