The Stanley family of Low Park

This entry was posted by on Sunday, 31 January, 2010 at

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.

    Thank you Richard for the areas you have indicated. I don’t know why it has been so difficult finding this family, especialy the children which will complete this line. I have had no problem in finding all the families for Edward, b: 1660 & all the family trees but a dead end when it comes to the Roberts. Edward was a brother to Thomas whose child was Robert, b: 1727, his Robert, b: 1757. I do have “The House of Stanley”

    Any further comments or any knowledge of this family would be appreciated.
