Peter Chaigneau was grandson of Rev. David Chaigneau, priest of the Huguenot congregation. He died in Carlow in 1744. His great grandfather, Isaac Chaigeau is buried in the Huguenot graveyard on Merrion Row in Dublin.

From Ron Medulison

I believe this record relates to Hugh Cuming who was the business associate of Benajmin D'Israeli of Beechy Park, Rathvilly (purported uncle of the British Prime Minister). Hugh was also executor of Benjamin's estate, and lived in an adjoining estate to Beechy Park, called Bough.
