Butler Journal Volume 1 Number 5 (1974)
Prepared by LORD DUNBOYNE from readers' questions
(Continued from Butler Journal, Vol 1, p. 300)
Please send clues and queries for this serial to Lord Dunboyne.
Factual information, however
meagre, is welcome; sooner or later it will probably dovetail with what
is already known and help to complete a jig saw. Thanks for con-
tributions from all over the world are due, with apologies for inability
to acknowledge each individually.
For brevity "per" denotes "according to information received from ".
The Butler ancestry of the following is sought:
56. Agnes Butler(b. ca. 1867)
Clues- She was an orphan, aged 10, 'very well behaved and
of neat and engaging appearance', when she came before
Southwark Magistrates' Court in 1877 because the brother of
a constable in M Division who had for some time supported
her could no longer afford it. The magistrate was reluctant to
commit her to an Industrial School and said he would seek
another home for her (Times, 30.7.1877).
Comment- The sequel would be of no less interest than her
57. Anstace nee Butler, Mrs Patrick St Leger (ca. 1460)
Clues- She m. Patrick St Leger (d.1498) of Tullanbrogue,
Co. Kilkenny. Their 1st s., Edmund, was born ca. 1460.
According to a note (probably written late 19th cent.) in
Lord Doneraile's family archives, "Patrick Sentleger of
Tologharbruwe mard. Anstace, da. of Edmund MacRichard
Butler" (per enquirer, Baron St Leger of Paris).
Comment- She would thus be da. of Edmund (d.1464), s. of
Richard (1395-ca.1440), 2nd s. of 3rd E. of Ormond. If she
were base, it would account for her omission from Butler
pedigrees. This Edmund's base sons, Pierce and Richard (see
HarLMSS. 1425 f 81), with Patrick St Leger and others, seem
to have been granted privileges by Innocent VIII in 1491
(White, Irish Monastic Deeds, 107).
58. Elizabeth née (ca. 1760) Butler, Mrs George Bolton.
Clues- She m. George Bolton, Lancashire Banker, of Elm
Lodge, Cumberland, and bro. of Mr Sergeant Bolton. His
family was of Yorks. and London. Their 2nd da. Mary Jane
(d.1827) m. 25.6.1816 at Barton, Westmorland, John Wood
and with him emigrated to N.S.W. (per their descendants
John Butler Wood and Mrs Machin, of Queensland).
Comment- Elizabeth's arms are as those of the Butlers of
Rawcliffe who descend from Roger, bro. of 1st Butler of
Ireland (see Q.8). She is most unlikely to be da. of an earl of
Ormond as supposed.
59. Gabriel, Count Buttlar of Gran, Hungary, 1 755.
Clues- His arms were: quarterly, 1 & 4, or, a chief indented
az., 2 & 3, arg., a lion rampant gu. Motto: Soyez Ferme
(A. Rodway, Butler Heraldry, MS, p.54). The enquirer is of
the Carrick branch, Lady June Hobson of Portugal.
Comment- His motto suggests a Carrick descent. His 2nd da.,
Elizabeth (d. 1824) m. 1755 Gen. Hon. John Dormer
(1730-95). Perhaps a Dormer can help.
60. Gerald Butler (d. ca. 1798) of Ballyadams, Queen's Co.
Clues- A merchant, he was also of Cashel (Chanc. Bill,
Comment- His parentage stumped even T. Blake Butler who
thought Gerald must have bought Ballyadams. By Anne, da.
of Richard Butler (1716-1755) of the Ballynahinch line
which descended from James, 6th Lord Dunboyne (d.1445),
Gerald had Maj. Gen. Sir Edward Butler (1770-1824).
Pierce Butler of the Grantstown branch m., ca. 1667, Catherine
da. of Sir William Bowen of Ballyadams (formerly Kilmokidi),
61. James Butler of Inistioge, Co. Kilkenny, early 19th cent.
Clues- By Joanna, née Laresy, he had at least two sons, Ed-
mond and John Martin (who migrated, 1863 and 1845
respectively, to W. Australia, primarily, it seems, for R.C.
missionary work) and two das., Ellen O'Reilly and Mary
O'Mahony (per Mrs Gorman of W. Australia, grt. granda. of
Comment- James was probibly of the Neigham branch
which descended from Edmond (d.1491), base elder bro. of
8th E. of Ormond. There was another Butler migration from
Inistioge to Australia, in the Gold Rush which started 1851
(see Q. 49).
62. Capt. John Butler (d. in Peru, 1580).
Clues- He is said to be from Ireland, and a colleague of
Drake. The Spaniards called him "Chalona". He was executed
in Lima (J. A. Williamson, Age of Drake, 135; A. L. Rowse,
Sir Richard Grenville, 80). His bro., Henry, was sent to the
galleys for life (per Rev. Mel Butler of Canada).
Comment- The Latin American MSS in London University
Library might yield more clues.
63. John (ca. 1566-163 7), 1st Lord Boteler of Brantfield,
Clues- He in. Elizabeth, half sister of George, 1st Duke of
Buckingham. John's nephew, Francis, founded a local charity
(per enquirer, A.M. Parsons of Hatfield).
Comment- John was of Higham, Beds. (per Leics. 1619
Visitation, Harl. Soc., ii,30) and of Hatfield Woodhall, Herts
(per Herts. 1634 Visitation, Harl. Soc., xxii,112). Created
baronet, 1620, and baron, 1628, he was buried at Higham
Gobion, Beds. (G.E.C., revised, ii,229). He appears to be s. of
Sir Henry (d.1609), s. of Sir John (d.1572), s. of Sir Philip
s. of John (d.1514), s. of John, s. of Philip, s. of Sir Philip
(d.1418), s. of Philip (d.1393), s. of Ralph (who acquired
Woodhall by marrying Katherine da. & h. of Sir Philip
Peletoyt of Woodhall), s. of Sir Ralph (d.1279) of Norbuty,
Salop, yger. s. of Ralph le Botiller (d. ca. 1281) of Oversley,
Warws., whose elder s., William, was ancestor of barons
Botiller of Wemme, Salop. The Botelers of Brantfield were
thus a cadet branch of the family descended from the butler
of the feudal earl of Leicester.
64. John Butler (d. 1763, Norfolk, Conn., U.S.A.).
Clues- He m. Martha nee Eells, was buried at Walton, N.Y.
and had bros., Daniel, who m. Martha's sisters, Dinah and
Sarah, and William, captain of a ship that sailed between N.Y.
and W. Indies (per Mrs Long of Michigan, U.S.A. for Lou
Butler who is compiling a history of John's family).
Comment- Perhaps he was s. of Jonathan, Elnathan, Stephen
or John, Sons of Jonathan Butler (1700-1760) of Saybrook,
Conn. who may have a common Butler ancestor with the
founder of Butler's Rangers (for which see Q.5).
65. Capt. John Butler, E.I.C.S. (d.1812).
Clues- He m. in Calcutta, 2.4.1796, Lydia Elizabeth
(1782-1861), 3rd da. of William Howard, and, by her, had
Peter of Milton House, Carew, Pembs., and another son who
became a General and a da,, Lydia Elizabeth (b. 1809) who m.
1st, Rev. Francis Candy (d.1831) and 2nd, Rev. Henry
Harding. John's crest: out of a ducal coronet, a covered cup,
or. Arms: az., three covered cups, or. (per enquirer Dr R.J.
Hetherington of Birmingham).
Comment: The arms indicate descent from the Butlers of
Devon, eight generations of whom figure in Devon 1620
Visitation (Harl. Soc., vi,36).
66. John Butler of Ireland, 1828
Clues- His family was R.C., his bro. was William J., and a
relative was James Butler, tea merchant of Kilkenny. John m.
Mary née Organ or Degan. Their son, Patrick Francis, b.
Waterford, 1828, migrated. 1845, to Boston. Mass. and m.
at Cambridge. Mass., ca. 1858, Mary Ann née Kigwell. They
moved, 1860, to San Francisco and there founded the
millinery firm, Butler Bros. (per P.F.B.'s grt.gs., William
Harding Butler of California).
Comment- Patrick Dugin who, with a John Butler, witnessed
the 1725 Will (B.T.R.124) of John Butler of Ballyneale,
Waterford. was possibly of Mary née Degan's family. Again,
it may be relevant that James Butler, formerly of Ennis, Co.
Clare. died 31.1.1867 at his residence, 10 Madison St, N.Y.,
six weeks after "his afflicted relative had followed to an early
grave" John T. Butler (Clare Jo., 21.2.1867, from Irish
67. John Butler(ca. 1824 1904) of Beakstown, Holycross,
Clues- His family. "the Big" Butlers, came from Munroe,
near Ballycahill. Thurles. His da., Mary. died 1934 (per her
g.s.. Dr M. Rahill of Ardee. Co. Louth).
Comment- Edmond (d.1682. s. of Edward. s. of Richard,
3rd V. Mountgarret) acquired land in Munroe through his
wire, Mary, da. of Philip Walsh ofThurles (MS of 25.5.1664,
probably in Nat. Lib.. Dublin under Castle Crine MSS). By
her, he had James, and Edmond who, by Mary née Toole,
had John and Margaret (B.T.R.164).
68. John Butler of 94 Main St., Maryborough, Queen's Co.,
Clues 94 Main St. in 1826 belonged to Catherine Butler.
A male and female Meehan married Butlers and this John
was uncle of Elizabeth (1810-1891), John, Patrick, and
David, Butler-Meehan. His only son, another John Butler
(living 1810) settled in Wisconsin, U.S.A. (per P.F. Meehan of
Tullamore, Co. Offaly, Patrick B-M.'s grt. g.s.).
Comment- James Butler of Kilkenny City in his 1731 Will
(B.T.R.99) mentioned his bro., John of "Main Bogg, Queen's
Co.", who might be ancestor of John of 1850. The latter may
have had a sister, Anne. For it was in or near Maryborough
that Anne née Butler (d.1826), wife of Samuel D. Bradshaw,
bore him George, William, and Rachel, Butler Bradshaw (per
Mrs Griffith of Ballindine, Co. Mayo, g.da. of William B.B.)
69. Julia née Butler, Mrs Barry (early 19 century?)
Clues- She is said to have been disinherited in consequence
of marrying at Donnybrook her father's secretary. But her
uncle left her "Bath Avenue" (per her grt g.da., Miss E. Goff
of Sask., Canada).
Comment- Julia is unlikely to be da. of "a marquess of
Ormonde" as supposed.
70. Mary nee Butler, Mrs Wilson, ca. 1750.
Clues- Family tradition says she was da. of a duke of
Ormonde and her bro. was assassinated. She m. Dr Wilson of
Dublin. Their g.s. was Living in Leeds, Yorks. by 1838 (per
her descendant, R.S.S. Wilson of Kelowna, B.C.).
Comment- Historically, the assassination of a Butler has been
rare. In 1463 Sir John Butler was murdered in bed at Bewsey
Hall, Lancs. (Chetham Soc., lxxxvii,303). Mary might, how-
ever, be a base da. of 2nd D. of Ormonde and the Maria Butler
mentioned in the 1758 Codicil of Charles, E. of Arran (Butler
of Moore Park Barony Case, Minutes of Evidence. 86).
Marian of Knowle, near Derby (1st da. of William Wilson of
Leeds and widow of Ralph Butler of Lancaster) died, aged
75, at 7 Gloddaeth Crescent, Llandudno (Times, 20.8.1857).
71. Mary née Butler, Mrs Daniel Lynch, ca. 1850.
Clues- Her grandmother may have been a Fenton. Her mother
was probably Ellen née Croker, and her da., Ellen, was née
Lynch, in Middleton, Ireland, 21.3.1848. Some of them were
born in Co. Cork, others in N. Ireland (per Mrs French of W.
Yarmouth, Mass., USA., Ellen née Lynch's gr. da.).
Comment- Midleton, Co. Cork, sandwiched between Carrig-
twohill and Castlemartyr, suggests a link with Henry Butler,
husband of Ellen (1791-1888) née Murphy of Castlemartyr
(see Q. 11).
72. Nathaniel Butler, Governor of Bermuda 1619-22
The query was received, via Lord Butler, from the Governor
of Bermuda, Sir Richard Sharples, on the eve of his
assassination in 1973.
Clues- Nathaniel was a well-known pamphleteerist.
Comment- He was s. of John Boteler of Sharnbrook, Beds.,
s. of George (d.1551) who came there from Droitwich,
Worcs. These Butlers derived in Plantagenet times (see Q.47)
from Yatton, presumably in Somerset although called "Yatt-
on, Beds." in Essex 1558, and "Yeton, Beds." in Worcs.
1569, Visitations (Hart Soc., xiii,32; xxvii,30). Nathaniel's
half-bros. were Oliver, ancestor of Butler barts. of Barham,
Kent. and John, ancestor of many American Butlers, including
Jane née Butler, mother of Lawrence Washington from whom
his half-bro., George Washington, the President, inherited
73. Nicholas Butler (d. 1671) of Martha's Vineyard, Mass. USA.
Clues- As yeoman of Eastwell, Kent, he m. at St Mary's,
Ashford, Kent, 22.1.1623, Joyce (1601-1680), da. of
Richard and Margaret Baker of Ashford and emigrated,
1637, from Sandwich, Kent, to Dorchester, Mass., where he
owned land at Duncan Hill in 1639, moving to Martha's
Vineyard in 1651 (per his descendant, J.C. Phipps, Met.Mag.
Comment- No Butler is recorded in Eastwell's parish register
1538-1705. As it was from Sandwich he sailed, he may
have been related to Butlers who had been there since at
least 15th cent. His erratic descendant, Gen. Benjamin
Franklin Butler. was nominated for the Presidency of USA.
74. Patrick Butler (1828-1905) of Co. Cork.
Clues- Born 28.3.1828 in Co. Cork, he emigrated and m. in
Illinois, Margaret née Kenedy (1835-1913) from Co. Tip.
He was illiterate. On a farm just east of Ashland, Ill. she bore
him 3 s. and 7 das. from 1855 (per Patrick's g. s.. R.A. Newell
Comment- Some record in USA. of Patrick's marriage (in
Illinois, presumably ca. 1854) may reveal his Irish paternity
or place of origin.
75. Richard Butler of Stadhampton, Oxon,
Australian immigrant, 1853.
Clues- He and his bros., Daniel and Philip, were born in
England, orphaned and brought up by an aunt. Daniel, a.
University lecturer, stayed in England. Philip, aged 20.
migrated, 1838, to S. Australia where Fortune smiled on him;
he later returned with his family and bought Tickford Abbey,
Newport Pagnell, Bucks. Richard, himself, was of The Manor,
Stadhampton, Oxon, before emigrating, 1853 (with his wife
and the first three of 8 children) to S. Australia, where his 1st
s., Sir Richard (1850-1925) became Premier and had 12
children, including Sir Richard (1885-1966) who was also
Premier (per the latter's da., Mrs Eadie of S. Australia).
Comment- "Richard Butler of Stadhampton, 21 a.u." had,
20.9.1848, a bond to marry at St Peter-in-the-East, Oxford,
Mary Sadler of that parish (Oxon Dioc. Marriage Bonds,
d. 31 f. 164). His bro. was Daniel (ca. 1814-1822), M.A. of
Lincoln Coll., Oxford, and headmaster, Clergy Orphan
School. His bro., Philip's grant of arms is in Heralds' Coll.
Grant Book, vol.53, fol.35 (Hart Soc., lxvii,58). Richard's
father was Richard Thomas Butler of Ewelme, Oxon, gent.
(Foster, Alumni Oxon., 202; but Foster's place-names of
fathers were not always reliable).
76. Richard Butler of Ireland, British army officer, India,
Clues- Shannon View, Kilrush, Co. Lim., is believed to be his
childhood home. By Emily, he had Francis Clifford (1875-
1917) of Canada, and Robert by another wife. He probably
also had a da., Minimia (per F.C.B.'s son. Duane Butler of
Comment The notion that this Richard was the Richard
(d.1902) who was bro. Of Gen. Sir William Butler is untenable.
The "Clifford" clue points to George Sylvester (2nd s. of
Thomas) Butler who m. in Rathfarnham, 1849, Elizabeth, da.
of John Clifford, Esq. (Lim. Chron., 9.5.1849). She d. 1862,
aged 33 (Dublin Eve. Mail, 30.8.1862).
77. Sir Stephen Butler (the Earls of Lanesborough's ancestor,
Clues- He is said to have descended from John Butler of
Wansley, Hunts,, living 1376 (Lanesbroough privately printed
pedigree which gives no mesne descent), to have married
Mary. da. and coh. of Gervase Brindsley of Brindsley, Notts.
and settled at Clonose, Co. Cavan, by 1625, (Burke Peerage).
Comment- Wansley must be a mistake for Waresley, where a
family of Boteler similarly bore: Arg., 3 covered cups in bend
between 2 bendlets engrailed, sa. (Harl. Soc., xli, 96). "Sir
Steven Butler" at St James, Clerkenwell, 21 .6.1624, married
"Mary Banslye" by licence (Harl Soc. Reg., xiii, 53). He was
"Stephen Butler, Knight of Belturbet" in his 1638 Will
(B.T.R.276). Sir Stephen was 2nd s. of George, s. of Edward,
s. of John Butler of Waresly, Hunts (Clurterbuck, Hist. of
Herts., ii. 222).
Clues- This unusual name recurred recently when table-
turning at Lutterellstown, Co. Meath ! Synolda (da. of Sir
Robert Lutterell of Lutterellstown) m., 1299, William 1e
Petit and bore him an heiress, Synolda, who m., 1320, Sir
Thomas Butler (3rd s. of 4th Butler of Ireland) who became
lst Lord Dunboyne, jure uxoris. The 18th cent. revival of
"Synolda" in the Dunboyne branch of Butlers, was aided by
a superstition that no Miss Butler would get married unless
there were a "Synolda" in the family. So the name has been
preserved in that branch, seemingly exclusively. Appropriately
enough, Victor Walker of Bibury, Glos., who is descended
from James Butler (1810-1891), 8th s. of 23rd Lord
Dunboyne has named his fine yacht (built 1972) "Synolda".
Nor is he alone in wanting to know the origin and meaning of
Comment- We need the help of an etymologist. It may mean
swan-like from Latin, "olor", for swan, or, possibly, the
scented lady, from "olida", for stinking
79. Thomas Butler of Ireland (early 19th cent.)
Clues- He was R.C. and m. Anastasia née Costello. Their
son, John, a day-labourer ("journalier") m., in Montreal.
1850, Margaret. da. of Michael Harrington of Co. Tip. (per
John's grt g.s., M.J. Butler of Montreal).
Comment - In 1792, a John Costello witnessed the Will
(B.T.R.151) of Anne née Burke, widow of Pierce Butler who
may have been of Kilmoyler. She mentions no child in her
will. Ca. 1860, there was another Butler-Costello marriage
(see Q. 43).
80. Thomas Butler, 18th cent. English lawyer.
Clues- Early 18th cent., he left Ely, Cambs. to practise law
in London. Of his 12 sons, scattered from London to
Woolwich, Reading, Essex, Wales and India, John George m.
in Oxford, 21.12.1776, Anne née Venables and settled in
Hounslow. Their 3rd s., Gamaliel (1783-1852) migrated,
1825, to Van Dieman's Land (i.e. Tasmania) and was
patriarch of a large family (G.T. Butler, Gamaliel Butler).
Comment - This Thomas might be s. of Ambrose Butler who
was of Barnwell, Cambs., when admitted to Inner Temple,
1658 (I.T. Admissions, i 541) and, aged 40 in 1684 when he
had licence to marry Maria Margaretta née Sydenham
(Harl Soc., xxiv, 70).
81. William Butler of Kimbolton, Hunts., 1815.
Clues- His mother might be the Ann Butler who d. at
Kimbolton, 1794 (K. parish reg.). He was a keeper at K.
Castle (employed by Duke of Manchester). At K. in 1815,
his wife, Elizabeth, bore him a son, John Thomas. Family
tradition suggests descent from a Butler with a military
background who changed allegiance and fell from grace in
Ireland (per his descendant, David Butler of Cardiff).
Comment - The family tradition would square with descent
from one of the base sons of 2nd Duke of Ormonde, e.g. Major
William Butler (ca. 1681-ca. 1718) who m. a da. of Capt.
Harrison of York city and suffered grievously from the
Duke's defection to Jacobitism. Another possibility is descent
from John Butler of Waresley, Hunts., ca. 1500 (Hart Soc.,
xli,96; and see Q.77) or from Thomas Butler of Ely, ca.
1700 (see Q.80).
The following additions can now be made to comments on
earlier questions, for which back.references are given to the
instalment and page of Butler Jo. vol. i.
4. Thomas Butler (1720 89) of Penn., USA. [1:63; 2:129;]
Coolkenny is the older spelling of Coolkenna (L. Price,
Placenarnes of Co. Wicklow), a mile or so from the Carlow
boundary, in Shillelagh barony, Co. Wicklow. It was part of
the FitzWilliam estate, the records of which might help.
They are mainly in Sheffield Pub. Lib. and, for late 18th
cent., in Nat. Lib., Ireland. The Butlers of Coolkenna
might descend from those of Tullow, Co. Carlow (per
K.W. Nicholls, via George Butler of Dublin). The Butlers of
Tullow descended from Pierce, 2nd s. of 1st V. Mount-
garret. T. Blake Butler traced to the 19th cent. their descent,
but only in their heirs male line (Brit.Mus. Add.MSS 52802-
61; Nat, Lib., Ireland, MSS 12022-36).
9. James, 9th Earl of Ormond's heirs-male [2:13 1; 3:223;
Ireland's Lord Deputy was urging that Lord Mountgarret, as
next heir to the Ormond earldom, be moved to England
"during these doubtful times" (CaI.S.P. (Ire.), 1615-25,
10. Judith née Butler, Mrs Tennant, ca. 1750 [2:132]
She might be the only da. whom Thomas Butler (d.1753),
2nd s. of 1st V. Lanesborough, had by his wife, Mary n6e
Cummin, and whose paternal aunt and grt aunt were both
12. Edmund Butler of Paulstown, ca. 1650 [2:133]
James's birth should read "1714", not "ca.1659". Richard,
s. of this Edmund, might be the Richard whom the titular
James Ill created Baron Butler, 1727 (G.E.C., revised, ii,453).
13. Thomas Butler ca. 1700 [2:134]
Mr Butler of St Malo who rented two ships for the rescue of
Prince Charlie (J.S. Gibson, Ships of the `45) was probably
the Richard who was s. of this Thomas. For "Marbrand",
read "Malbranch" on p.l34.
16. Boutlerov of Russia [2.135]
The founder of this family is said to have descended from the
Ziegenberg branch of the Buttlar family and to have gone
from the Baltic to serve Ivan the Terrible who rewarded him
with an estate in Kazan (per Horst von Buttlar).
20. Victoria née Butler, Mrs Burke of Manila, 1869 [3:219]
She is said to be da. of John Benjamin Butler (1800-1855)
by his R.C. wife, née Soames. He was born in Manchester
and died in Manila. His aunts married a Hardcastle and a
Hoare (per Mme Mialhe, via Sir William Teeling). This
Victoria, as an only child, m. at Cath. Church, Santa Anna,
Manila, 6.2.1868, John Burke, M.D., 3rd s. of Joseph Burke
of Owen, Co. Galway. (Freeman's Jo., 5.4.1868).
21. Capt. William Butler (1814-1875) of New Zealand
He was s. of James (b.1756), s. of Rev. Duke (1723-1779)
of Okeford, near Blandford, Dorset, s. of Thomas Butler
(d.1744) of Camberwell, Surrey, who was born on Butler's
Sugar Estate, St James's parish, Windward, Nevis, W. Indies
(G.A. Beale, Butlers of Okeford, printed privately, Cadenza
Press, 1972). Thomas (d.1744) was 3rd s. of Capt. Thomas
(d.1687/8) of Nevis. Their arms were: Or, on a chief indented
az. 3 covered cups of the first (Caribbeana, ii,60 & iv,192).
It has been suggested that Capt. Thomas may have been
deported by Cromwell from Ireland to W. Indies. But his
arms suggest descent from the Butlers of Yatton (see Q. 47
22. John Butler (ca. 1766-1840) of Woolwich [3:220; 4:299]
Nathan Butler of Woolwich, Brewer, aged ca. 30, applied,
12.8.1663, for licence to marry at St Martin's, Ludgate, Anne,
nee Roberts, of Deptford, Kent, aged ca. 20 (Harl. Soc.
xxxiii,98). On the other hand, this John might be g.s. of
Thomas Butler of Ely (see Q.80).
25. Samuel Butler of Worcs., 1610 [3:220]
For "Stensham" read "Strensham". Susan, da. of Richard
Butler of Strensham, Worcs., m., mid-16th cent. Richard
Harris of Walton, Glos. (Harl.Soc. xxi,77; xxvii,109)
28. Anne née Butler, Mrs Dallin [3:221]
Thomas Thomson, merchant, who was admitted freeman of
Enniscorthy, Co. Wexford, 1780 (Hore, Hist. of Wex., vi,544)
may be s. of Mrs Dallin's da., Margaret.
47. Thomas Boteler (d. ca. 1645) of Maryland [4:294]
Add "s. of John" before "s. of George". See also Q. 72.
49. Thomas Butler, m., 1830, Mary née Barron [4:295]
Rev. Pierce Butler [4:296] was of the Galmoye branch. He
was not of Inistioge before 1852 nor was he R.C. So he is not
relevant. But Mary, relict of a Pierce Butler, d. at her
residence in Main Street, Clonmel, 12.9.1871. (Freeman's
Jo., 20.9.1871, which adds "American and Australian papers
50. Thomas Butler of Williamstown, Co. Tip. [4:296]
Three of the 67 Irish Butlers killed in the 1914 War were
born in Ballingarry, Co. Tip. (which is Williamstown's postal
address): Pte James Butler, No. 9420 (d.1917), 2nd Bn.,
