Families covered: Everard of Fethard, Everard of Randlestown (Randalstown or Randillstown)

For interest, we report the early generations of this family as reported by BLG1886. However, as there are a number of differences between BLG1886 and BP1934, which we take to mean that research before the latter uncovered errors in the former, we show them in italics to show that we treat them as dubious. Interestingly, many of the marriages shown in BLG1886 are shown also in BP1934 but for a later period, suggesting that BLG1886 (which appears to mix up some siblings with some sons) was developed without full access to relevant dates.

  b. Nicholas Everard of Fethard
  This connection is provided by BLG1886 which, though by this stage agreeing with BP1934 as to the names of the eldest sons, is still 'confused' with their wives. We have yet to see what TCB reports on (the baronets of) this family.
(1) John Everard of Fethard
  (A) Redmond Everard of Fethard
  BLG1886 provides the above connection but identifies the 1st Baronet as Sir John, son of this Redmond, whereas BEB1841, which starts with the 1st Baronet, names him Richard. TCB starts with Sir John, father of the 1st Bart Richard, so we presume that Redmond's son was ...
  (i) Sir John Everard of Fethard (judge)
  This may be the John who married ...
  m1/2. Amy or Catherine Roche (dau of David Roche, Viscount of Fermoy)
  TCB identifies the mother of Richard as ...
m2/1. Catharine Plunkett
  (a) Sir Richard Everard, 1st Bart, of Ballyboye (a 1657, 2nd son)
  m. (c1627) Catherine Tobin (dau of John Tobin of Killaghy and Compshinagh)
  ((1)) Sir Redmond Everard, 2nd Bart, of Fethard (d 20.02.1686)
  m. Elizabeth Butler (dau of Richard Butler of Kilcash)
  ((A)) Sir John Everard, 3rd Bart of Fethard (d Aughrim 12.07.1690)
  m. (after 02.1686-7) Elenor Butler (dau of Pierce Butler, 4th Lord Caher)
  ((i)) Sir Richard Everard, 4th Bart of Fethard (dsp(m) c1740)
  Richard was created a Viscount by James, the Old Pretender' but that title was not formally recognised. BEB1841 reports that his wife was Catherine, dau of James Tobin of Cumpshinagh, but TCB identifies her as ...
m. (15.06.1721) Mary Drake (b 15.06.1694, d before 04.1746, dau of Montagu Drake of Shardeloes by Jane Garrard)
  TCB reports that Richard dsp but BEB1841 shows a daughter:
  ((a)) Catherine Everard
  m. Richard Shee of Cloran
  Not mentioned by TCB or BEB1841 but possibly fitting here was ...
  ((ii)) Raymond Everard of Fethard and Liege
  ((a)) Elizabeth Eleanora Everard (bpt 01.01.1696/7, d 22.05.1728)
m. (mcrt 28.09.1716) Henry Arundell, 6th Lord of Wardour (b 04.10.1694, d 30.06.1746)
  ((B)) Mary Everard apparently of this generation
  m. Theobald Butler of Knockanamonagh, 5th Lord Caher (d 27.09.1700)
  ((C)) Elizabeth Everard apparently of this generation
  m. James Butler, 6th Lord of Dunboyne (d 01.1701)
  Not mentioned by BLG1886 or TCB but possibly fitting here was ...
  (ii) Edward Everard of Fethard
  TCP (Upper Ossory) notes that, if this was the Edward who d. 29.03.1637, his wife was A. Sawse or Swase.
  (a) Catharine Everard
  m. Bryan or Barnaby FitzPatrick, 6th Lord of Upper Ossory (d c1666)
  m2. Elenor Bellew (widow of Nicholas Plunket)
  ii. Patrick Everard of Newtown
  m. Catherine FitzJohn (dau of Thomas FitzJohn of Fyanstown)
