 The Courtenay Family in Ireland part 1   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-01)
Richard Courtenay could have been born at Powderham; however it is more likely that he was from a junior branch of the family in Devonshire.
If Richard descended from one of these junior branches, it is certainly possible that Chichester would recognize the family connection, and include him among the beneficiaries of the Irish lands he parceled out after being appointed Lord Lieutenant of Ireland in 1604.
Perhaps Richard Courtenay married a daughter of this Sir James MacDonnell, or perhaps he married one of the daughters of Sorley Boy MacDonnell, Sir Randal's father and the original grantee of the Antrim lands.

One of director Richard Lester's least-known films, Juggernaut was part of the wave of disaster movies of the early 1970s--and one of the only ones with a sense of intelligence.
Richard Harris, in one of his most controlled performances, plays a bomb expert called aboard a luxury liner in midocean; the ship has been commandeered by an anonymous terrorist, demanding money before he starts setting off bombs he has planted around the vessel.
The direction by Richard Lester, better known for his comedic musical films with The Beatles and not thrillers, is fast paced, with some superb effects; I especially like the suspenseful moments when the demolition crew arrives on the scene, parachuting into the stormy sea.
