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.

Robert Stanley of Athlone

I am searching for Robert Stanley, b: 1757 of Inchmore who married Anne Adamson, b: 1755 of Cloghan, Westmeath.  In 1786  he was residing in Athlone.  He was a Church Warden in 1786 & also a Vestryman between 1785-1803.  He was from the Parish of St. Mary’s (C of I).

It is believed he had a son George Adamson Stanley, b: 1796-97 in Dublin.  He married an Anne Douglas. Also known as Fuller.  He died in Dublin 1872.

Robert’s (1757) father was also Robert, b:1727 at Inchmore. He married Jane at Naas, Kildare in 1755.

If anyone has any information on this family, it would be gratefully appreciated.  Thank you.
