Thomas Abercromby.
     James Somerville was mentioned in the 1666 hearth tax list in Enniskillen, Fermanagh.
James Somerville married fourthly Anna Catherina Grubbe-Stjernfelt on 14 December 1670 in Ireland. He was her fourth husband. The marriage licence was dated 14 December 1670. He was of Tullykelter but then staying at Tallaght. He was a Captain of Horse and they had one son and one daughter.
     James Somerville and George Dunbar were mentioned in a civil court action on 24 May 1671. Chancery bill, between Irwin pltf & Callwell & Somerville defts: Christopher Irwin of Edinburgh, Doctor of Physic, sheweth that William Cathcart of Bardonagh, co. Fermanagh, was about 1614 possessed of Dromcroe, Drumborony, Courtloone and Turnagowan in the proportion of Dromcroe, together with the barrs of the mountains in the barony of Magheraboy by lease of 61 years to him made by John Dunbar kt, at £10 per acre. About 1639 William Cathcart did sell the said lands, together with the barrs of the mountains thereto belonging for the remainder of the term for the sum of £300, paid to him by Christopher Irwin of Lowtherstown, dec. father of your orator. He further sheweth that Geo Dunbar of Braugh in the said county, gent. brother of the sd John Dunbar, being seized of one great tate of land called the Braugh, together with Killybeg and ? Comehill, being barrs of the mountains thereto belonging, did jointly with his brother John Dunbar, enfeofe Christopher Irwin of the same in 1637. Your orator's father in 1639, in consideration of the marriage of your orator, with Margaret Wishart, daughter of James Wishart of Glenteverin in the said county, settled said lands and said lease on your orator, who continued in quiet possession till the rebellion of 1641. Orator's father had some years before his death become bound to Sir Gerard Lowther for a debt of £50 due by Mary Callwell, widow, afterwards married to Henry Longford of Enniskillen, which he (Irwin) had to pay. Some controversy having arisen between Longford and himself, the whole matter was referred to Dean Bartley of Clogher, and Mr Hugh Bartley of Lifford co. Donegal, clerk, who ordered Longford to repay to Christopher Irwin, the £50, which was accordingly done, yet in 1653 Longford made his complaint to one Colonel Barrow, a colonel under the usurped powers, who committed Chr. Irwin to gaol, till he should either repay the £50, or give surety to abide by an arbitration. Thereupon Chr. Irwin did about the 10 June 1653, did engage the quarterland great tate and the premises to Henry and Mary Longford & James Callwell, son of the said Mary, with the condition that if Christopher Irwin should not bring his arbitrator, Major Hugh Ross, to Enniskillen, to end all differences between the said parties, and to stand to certain arbitrators not named in the deed, or to an umpire to be chosen, the the said deed of mortgage to remain in full force. No award was ever made; yet Henry and Mary Longford, (who took the management upon her), got possession of the said lands; and Henry being deceased, she made them over to James Callwell, who sold them to Richard Dunbar, late of Derrygonnelly, grandchild to said John Dunbar; who left the four great tates or quarterland of Drumcroe & Drumborony, Callone, Turmagowan and Barwinlahorke, with the barrs of the mountains, between Dame Anna Catherina Hamilton alias Dunbar, his widow and relict, since married to James Somerwell of Tullykelter and Catherine Dunbar, an infant of about 3 years of age, daughter of Sir Richard & Anna Catherina; and the other great tate of Braugh to William Dunbar of Kilcow, co. Fermanagh. He therefor prays that they may be put upon their title by oath etc.
     James Somerville and Richard Dunbar were mentioned in a civil court action on 13 November 1672. Chancery bill of Garrard Graham, plaintiff & Somervill deft, relating to lands in co. Sligo, which had been let on 4 January 1658 by Richard Dunbar, to orator. His widow Anna Catherina and her husband James Somerwell were not in possession of the rents, Graham was a near relation of the said Richard and Anna Catherina, and at their request did until 1670, pay the full rent of £4 a year, without making any deduction for some land taken away by one Dodwell. The land had improved in value, the lease had been lost and Somerwell had, it was alleged, combined with one Richard Phipps to evict Graham.

     James died before 11 September 1687 in Tullykelter, Fermanagh, Ireland.

     James Somerville was mentioned in a court case on 24 June 1688. Somervill, plaintiff v. Dunbar. This chancery bill shews that Lady Anna Catherina Somervill alias Dunbar, about 21 years since, being married to Richard Dunbar, he being sickly, made his last will and testament (being seized in fee of Drumcroe etc) and devised unto oratrix, who then his wife & big with child, the proportion of Drumcroe during the minority of the child, and half to the child when of age, and half to herself for life, with remainder to the said child in fee. That he soon after died, being seized of the lands. Oratrix entered into the said lands, and was soon after delivered of a child which happened to be a daughter, and was christened Catherine. Oratrix continued quietly in possession, till John Dunbar, esq. about five or six years last past, commenced a suit against James Somervill, deceased & her then husband, herself and the said Catherine, endeavouring to prove that Richard had only an estate tail, to him and the heirs male of his body, with remainder to him the said John Dunbar. A commission sat at Belleek in the said county Fermanagh, to which Jas Somervill took Richard Dunbar's will, and left it on a table. It was taken up & removed by Thomas Hardcastle and Andrew Hamilton, commissioners for the said John Dunbar, who gave it to him. She prays that they may be called to answer certain queries about the will. [The researcher could not find this will in the PRO]..
