Helen It has been a while since I posted that and I have since learned more and have visited my grandmothers' home in Ireland several times. On Sir Bannistre Tarleton, we have a copy of the Sir Joshua Reynolds painting that hangs in the National Galley in London, although it is smaller, approximately 24'x36'. Sir Bannistre did indeed die without issue, however, Mary Robinson (actress and mistress to the Prince of Wales) was pregnant with his child when she was involved in a carriage accident on her way to the coast to join him in Paris. He never married Mary Robinson, but married later in life to a widow from Liverpool who had children but never had any of his own. I am still trying to determine why we have so many things realting to him in our family. We have pictures of Lord Oliver, Lord Clive and Lord Lyton who was a close personal friend of Sir Bannistre. My grandmother, Isabella Rosemary Anne Tarleton is from the Killiegh Abbey, Hunstanton line who settled in Ireland in approximately 1634 by Gilbert Tarleton and Muriel Digby, daughter of Lord Digby. Killiegh Abbey was a 6th century abbey of the followers of St. Patrick and grandmother's home was built from the friary and the stones from the origional abbey. It is still there and her home is now called Abbey Farms and is an Inn you can stay at run by the Mathews family who bought it from my family in 1912. I also would like to correct the name of my GGrandmother's castle in my first post. It is Hensol Castle in Glamorganshire Wales and several of my ancestors are buried there including my GGrandmother Isabella Anne Tarleton, nee Fothergill. I hope this helps.
