Butler (Waterville)

The Waterville branch of the Butler family descended from Whitwell Butler who married into the Yielding family. In the 1830s, the Ordnance Survey Name Books record Whitwell Butler, Belville, Caherciveen, as agent for the Blennerhassett lands in Caher Parish. James Butler of Waterville owned over 1400 acres in county Kerry in the 1870s. At the same time Arabella Butler was the proprietor of over 700 acres. In 1906 terms had been arranged by the Congested Districts Board for the purchase of over 150 acres of the Butler estate in county Kerry. In 1909 the Board reported that this land had been purchased. An offer was made by the Congested Districts Board on over 500 acres of the Butler estate, then owned by minors, in 1916. At the time of Griffith's Valuation, James Butler was among the principal lessors in the parish of Ballinadee, barony of East Carbery, county Cork. In the 1870s Margaret Butler was the owner of over 700 acres in that county.
