Richard Courtenay (to Ireland temp James I who r. 1603-1625)
FMG notes that Richard was born in Powderham Castle and was related to the 1st Earl of Donegal whose father's mother was Gertrude, dau of Sir William Courtenay of Powderham Castle. We think it very likely that Richard was descended from one of the younger sons of that Sir William.
m. Mary MacDonald or MacDonnell
FMG identifies Richard's wife as "Lady Mary MacDonald, dau. & only child of the Earl of Antrim" but we cannot see how that can be (unless she was an unreported illegitimate daughter of the 2nd Earl).
