William Nugent (soldier)

William Nugent (died 1690) was an Irish soldier of the seventeenth century.

An Irish Catholic, he was a Jacobite supporter of James II. The King appointed him Lord Lieutenant of County Longford.[1] He also served as a Brigadier in the Irish Army. In February 1690 he was fatally wounded during the Battle of Cavan, a Jacobite defeat fought near the town of Cavan in southern Ulster.[2]
