"Curranes", Co.Kerry (Waterville) was acquired by
He lived in an old house there.
Theobald's son Whitwell Butler inherited Curranes (Waterville).
Waterville House was built by Whitwell Butler probably around the time of his marriage 1775.
The house was built 1775 [O'Hea O'Keeffe, 2013] or c.1775 [Houses of Kerry].
Whitwell Butler was said to be living at Waterville when he was attacked by the mob in 1782.
He is described as of Waterville in [Deed, 1785] and [Deed, 1790].
It seems the modern Waterville Golf Links is wrong to think the house was built 1790. It is earlier.
Whitwell Butler died at Waterville in 1808.
James Whitwell Butler
moved out of Waterville House in 1962.
The Butler family sold the house in 1962 or 1963 [O'Hea O'Keeffe, 2013] or 1965 [Houses of Kerry].
It is now a luxury guesthouse with golf links nearby.
