The Stanley family of Low Park

Posted by on Sunday, 31 January, 2010

The Stanleys of Low Park are descended from Michael Stanley of Handsworth who for his services in the army was granted lands in counties Roscommon and Galway under the Land Act on 10th November 1666. Michael in turn is a descendant of Sir John Stanley (1340-1414) of Lathom and Knowsley.

The family as it grew lived in a number of locations, in and around Athlone, including Low Park, county Roscommon and Bethlem House and Inchmore in county Westmeath and also Dublin.
