He was descended from Sir John St Leger, Member of Parliament for Doneraile who died in 1743 having previously purchased the Askeaton estate from the 5th Earl of Orrery. Sir John was the father of Anthony St Leger who purchased the Parkhill estate in Yorkshire in 1765 and from whom the race the St Leger Stakes takes its name. In 1804 Anthony Butler St Leger of Parkhill married Harriet Chester Bagot daughter of Charles Bagot and Catherine Legge and they had a son Anthony Francis Butler St Leger and a daughter Catherine who married in 1828 the Reverend Samuel Thomas Townsend. Pelham Babbington of Glandine, county Wexford, was the agent to the St Leger estate circa 1840. By the 1870s the St Leger's Limerick estate had passed to Colonel John St Leger of 6, Park-hill, Rotherham, Yorkshire, a nephew of Harriet Chester Bagot. He is recorded as owning 2,900 acres in county Limerick. He had taken the name St Leger in 1863. Anthony Butler St Leger also held over 600 acres in the barony and county of Cork which was advertised for sale in July 1852.
