Archibald Adair seems to have kept contact with the Earl of Cork (Broghill).
Refer "The Lismore Papers" of Sir Richard Boyle, Earl of Cork.In Vol. V "O'Kief, Coshe Mang, Slieve Lougher and Upper Blackwater in Ireland" - Historical and Genealogical items relating to North Cork and East Kerry by Albert Eugene Casey, M.D., Published and bound privately for the Knocknagree Historical Fund, 2011 Southwood Road, Birmingham 16, Alabama (1963).

March 4 1642 - I dispatched Capn. Thomas Williams from Yoghall, in a ship etc.Sent Broghill 20 carabynes, to better arm his troop.

27th September 1641 - Upon letter of Mrs. Elizabeth Fitzgerald, sister to Earl of Kildare, to send her for her use money of 600 pounds I owe her, the weiss being so dangerous, I durste not send money by her messenger."
There was a William Robert Adair who was a schoolteacher at Fermoy. In vol. 6, page 855.
"1813 - Sept. 9; William Adair, V.; LL.D; P.C. Fermoy, 1803-1813; Latin schoolmaster at Fermoy, 1804; will dated Aug. 3, proved Nov. 14, 1814, Dublin; bequeathed 1,000 pounds to trustee to invest in Government securities and interest applied by R. & Church Wardens of Fermoy & representatives of John Anderson, to maintain schoolmaster & mistress for children."

Geo. Higgins, Esq., patent, Jan. 17, 1714
Robt. Adaire, Higgins removed, patent March 21, 1714, ---Pleasure---Idem, f. R. 26.
Robt. Adaire, continued, patent, Oct. 26 1727, ---Pleasure---1 George 2. 2a pars. f. R. 32
John Adaire, Gent. - His father decd,---Patent, Sept.22, 1737,---Pleasure.---11. 1a pars d, R. 20.
(The above Robert Adair and John Adair fit into my "Hollybrook and Kilternan", Wicklow, Ireland lineage)
Henry Keppel, --- J. Adaire, decd,---Patent, Sep. 30, 1761,---Pleasure---1 George 3. 4apars d. R. 1.(death of John from Kilternan?)
So, I gather that our Jonny died and left something to Keppel, perhaps related to Lady Caroline Keppel, related to "Robin Adair".
The above may show some
connection with the Adair family from Scotland, the Shafto family, and the Fitzgeralds (Cork) until from perhaps the mid-1400s to early 1600's and perhaps with the Keppels too.
The Fitzgerald/Ireland history about 1335 - 1500 is in vol. VI pages 1628 - 1633, it also mentions the "White Knight".
The William Robert Adair mentioned above is mentioned in "Irish Marriages" by Farrar. -
Rev. Wm. R. Adair of Fermoy to L. Malcolm at DUMPHRIES (Scotland) Jan. 1804.
