John Butler (18th Century)
Clue: Having spotted an advertisement in "The Family Tree Magazine", Thelma Gillott managed to secure a family Bible said to have come from a house sale in Fordingbridge. This bible records a family of Butlers in West Bromwich and counties Yorkshire, Durham, Derby, Lanarkshire and elsewhere. One of the more recent entries is George Edwin Butler, Captain of P&O SS "Mantua", b. 16 March 1871, d. 27 July 1926 after an operation in St Thomas' Hospital, London. The direct line is listed back from his eldest brother William (b.1868) s/o Edwin Tranter Butler (b.1841) s/o William (b.1818) s/o George (b.1781) s/o John (b ?1759) s/o John (brother of James and ? William) s/o 2nd Duke of Ormonde.
Reply: Lord Dunboyne congratulates Thelma on her find. He emphasises that more research is needed but, at first sight, it does look quite possible that this family descends from the 2nd Duke, though most probably John was one of his many illegitimate sons.
