Life

He was the first-born son of the previous head Conn (Constantine) O'Neill and wife Cecilia O'Hanlon.

In 1740, for religious and political motives, he passed to Portugal (with his brothers), where he was an important Proprietor in the Council of Almada (and here he acquired the House and Farm of Arealva).

Marriage and issue

He married in Lisbon, São Paulo, on 2 September 1750 to Valentina Maria Josefa Ferreira (Torres Vedras, Carmões, 14 February 1730 - ?), daughter of José Ferreira (Lisbon, São Miguel de Alfama - ?), and wife Maria Ferreira (Torres Vedras, Carmões - ?), and had three children:

  • Carlos O'Neill (Lisbon, Santa Catarina, 9 June 1760 - 24 June 1835)
