    BUTLER FAMILY HISTORY

    Edmund was succeeded as 7th Butler by his teenage son, James, a liberal, pleasant and stately youth. As soon as James was 21 he was knighted. A year later he married the king's niece, Eleanor de Bohun, and, in the following year, October, 1328, he was created Earl of Ormond. As in the case of his father's "earldom" of Carrick, the creation charter is missing; but the earldom of Ormond was probably limited to the heirs-male, despite, the weighty opinion to the contrary of J. H. Round. The question did not arise until the death of the 7th Earl in 1515; but it may well arise again when the Ormonde Marquessate becomes extinct. [Note: the last Marquess of Ormond died in Chicago in 2001.]

    A few weeks after he was created Earl of Ormond, James was granted, by Edward III, the regalities and liberties of Co. Tipperary. Later the king saw fit to seize all the Counties Palatine in Ireland, of such importance had they become. But the Palatine of Tipperary was restored to Ormond on account of his royal consanguinity by marriage. This was the period of the overmighty subject that led to the Wars of the Roses. Ormond himself had extensive and widely distributed properites. Yet he lived and fought chiefly in Ireland where, in the flower of his youth, he died in his manor, a stone tower covered with shingles, at Moyalvi, Co. Tipperary. [Butler Family History]
