Byrne, Edmund (c.1655/6–1723/4), alias ‘Edward Hamson’, archbishop of Dublin, was born in Ballybrack, Co. Carlow, of Wicklow parents. Meagher suggests that he was a first cousin of Arthur O'Brin (Ó Broinn/Byrne) (son of John O'Brin of Ballyknockan), a distinguished member of the Spanish navy and knight of the order of Calatrava, who himself was a great grandson of Fiach MacHugh O'Byrne (qv).
