1. French-born sculptor, c. 1507-77, who settled in Valladolid.

2. A family of Spanish painters from the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. Alonso Berruguete (1488-1561) worked mainly at Valladolid, where he completed the altarpiece of St. Benito, and in Salamanca, where he executed the altarpiece of the Irish college.

3. Possibly the Spanish painter José Ximénez Donoso (1628-90) whose paintings were mainly on religious themes. A large painting of St. François de Sales by Ximénez Donoso hangs in the Minimos de Salamanca.

4. Some ref. to the hangings of Roger Casement and the Invincibles, but MacGreevy is also reported to have thought of the 77 republicans executed by the Free State Government in 1922-23.
