Families covered: Ussher of Camphire, Ussher of Cappagh, Ussher of Donnybrook, Ussher of Dublin, Ussher of Eastwell, Usher of Headford, Ussher of Kilmeadon, Ussher of Mount Ussher

We respect the presumed preference of the family (as set out in BLG1886) to spell the family name as Ussher rather than Usher but note that most cross-references to the family from other sources spell the family name as Usher.

  i. Sir William Ussher of Donnybrook
BLG suggests that Sir William's will was dated 28.12.1657 and that he was born in 1588 but that would indicate that he had 8 children by the age of 9 and that he outlived his successor by at least 29 years. This suggests that those dates applied not to this Sir William but to his grandson, also called Sir William.
