Jonathan / Jonathon Swift (1667-1745), Dean of St. Patrick, Dublin (wrote 'Gulliver's Travels') friend in Dublin and in England of Robin Adair's lady-friend, Letitia Pilkington (nee Van Lewen, g-dau of Mead of ............ ?)
Swift's father died before his birth and his mother returned to England leaving him with his uncle, Godwin Swift of Gray's Inn, attorney-general of the Court of Typperary. Godwin Swift's wife was Eleanor Meade, relative of ancestor of Theodosia Meade (fitzWilliam lineage) who m. 11 June 1835 Shafto Adair.
Swift (aged about 23yrs )left Agher in 1690 after the Battle of the Boyne (when Sir Robert Adair aged about 31yrs was knighted).
Will have to look up Letitia's book to see dates she was in England.
Robert Adair (d.1737) of Hollybrook, co. Wicklow and of Clonbroney, co. Longford had dau, Eleanor Adair who m. William Hodson of Tuitstown, Civil Parish of Kilpatrick, co. Westmeath. William Hodson's aunt Mary m. John Swift of Lynn, co. Westmeath (possibly related to cousin of Jonathan Swift).
Some say Forster Adair, brother of Eleanor, was 'Robin Adair', but not so.If he had an elder brother bc.1710 named Robert I would be very keen to know.Their father, Robert Adair d.1737 was known as 'Robin Adair', possibly as well as most Roberts at that time.
