St George’s, Dublin Sept.12, 1837) to Mary Baker, daughter of Abraham Baker of Balhealy House, Co . Dublin
Abraham Baker was married to Sophia, daughter of Sir John Blunden andLucinda Cuffe, the daughter of John Cuffe, first Lord Desart , b.1683.
Hans Butler was Chaplain of Villierstown 1847-1886. He died on 7th January,
1891, (his wife having died on Feb 2nd 1860). At the time of his death his address was
12 Ranelagh Road, Co.Dublin, and his executor was his son Francis Theobald Butler MD, then of 8 Parchmore Road, ThorntonHeath, Surrey. (Francis T Butler had married in 1874 Ellen, daughter of W.R.Jenney of Malta).
Hans Butler’s will amounted to £1,804.
Another son of Hans Butler was Henry Stuart Butler, who died before him on 29th June 1887 at
4 Garden Street, Chatham, Co.Kent.
At that date Hans Butler had an address at
47 Lower Mount Street, Dublin. Henry Stuart Butler was a solicitor, with offices at 4 Lower Ormond Quay, . Dublin
This address was later to be that of Frederick H Kennedy’s legal practice.
Hans Butler's wife's family were descended from General Gorge, and feature in one of
's weirdest 'ghost stories', refer to a book by Sheila St Clair. Ireland
Hans Butler was (Reg.of Deeds reference) Trustee of the affairs of one Hannah Butler, widow, of Castlestown, in
. Queens County
This is likely to have been his sister-in-law. In any event Hannah Butler was mother of Charlotte Butler, who married Garrett Moore, and their children were Hans Garrett Moore and Frances Garvey Moore.
A second Trustee of above affairs was one James Bird MD, of Banagher, Co.Offaly.
He was married to another Hannah, who was likely a daughter of Hannah Butler.
As noted elsewhere in these Records, Hans Butler was married to a MaryBaker.
She was of Balhealy House. Registry of Deeds references (1861.34.14.& 1861.35.282) concern the affairs of these Bakers.
Arthur Baker, formerly of Balhealy House, then of Frankfort Castle Dublin, likely Mary Baker’s brother, was father of Henry Baker and of Jane Baker, she married Barry Drew.
Henry Baker with a Robert Butler bought property from Arthur Baker.Barry Drew was son (?) of Edward Paoli Drew of Cappoquin, Co
