    BUTLER FAMILY HISTORY

    Sir Richard's sons "were not brought up after the English fashion" and may have been none the worse for that. Presumably they were sent out in gossipred, probably to Kennedy foster-parents. Edmond MacRichard, who built the Black Castle at Thurles to guard the pass over the Suir, led the Butlers to disaster in 1462 when he was captured at Piltown, Co. Kilkenny, fighting the Desmond Geraldines. To be released he had to surrender to his captors his Book of Carrick and his copy, which is now in the Bodleian Library, Oxford, of the Psalter of Cashel. His oldest son was father of Piers. [Butler Family History]
