  • Notes 


    • The Gentleman’s Magazine, (Jan-Jun 1839) at page 592 says:
      'In 1737 Mr Devereux returned to Ireland, where, shortly after, he married a celebrated beauty, his cousin Mary Esmonde ...'
      James' mother Lucy was a daughter of Sir Laurence Esmonde, so Mary's father Mark Esmonde must have been a son of Sir Laurence.
      The magazine describes the friendship between James and Lord Chesterfield, Lord Lieutenant, and the services rendered by James to his friend.
