Colonel David Synnot (alt Sinnot) was Governor of Wexford during the Sack of Wexford by Oliver Cromwell in 1649. Synnot was negotiating the surrender of the town when troops from the New Model Army broke in and sacked the town, during which Synnot was hanged.
His family's estates in County Wexford were confiscated by Cromwell.
David Synnot's descendants settled in Ballymoyer, Armagh, and included Sir Walter Synnot.
