Biography

Edmund was the second son of Theobald Butler and Joan ['FitzJohn'], daughter of John.[1][2][3]

Edmund succeeded to his father’s lands upon the death of his elder brother Theobald[4][5], the 5th Chief Butler of Ireland, who died 14 May 1299.[1] Memorandum of 15 Sep 1300 “that Edmund le Butiller, brother and heir of Theobald le Butiller, did homage to the king at Carlaverok, on 30 August, for all the lands that Theobald at his death held of the king in chief”.[6]

On 07 Feb, 19 Edw 1 [1300/1301] it was noted that Edmund le Butiller was to pay to the king the 3,000 l for the debts of his ancestors at the rate of 30 l yearly.[7].

Edmund was the heir of his mother, Joan. The Writ for her Inquisition Post Mortem was dated 26 May 31 Edw I [1303]. She was seised of lands in the counties of Surrey, Southampton, Buckinghamshire and Essex. Edmund was recorded as age 24, and as age 29.[8] On 13 Jan, 32 Edw I [1303/1304] an Order was made to deliver to "Edmund le Butiller of Ireland, son and heir of Joan la Botillere" the lands of his mother, as the escheator found by Inquisition.[9]

He married in 1302, Joan, daughter of John (FitzThomas FitzGerald).[1]

He was created Justiciar of Ireland in 1303 with a fee of £500 per annum.

He was knighted in London by Edward II in 1309.[1]

Three years later he defeated the O'Byrne and O'Toole clans in Glenmalure.

At a great feast at Dublin on Sunday 29 of September 1313, he created 30 Knights, by patent, dated at Langley 4 January 1314.

He died (after returning from a pilgrimage to St Jago of Compostella in Spain) on 13 Sep 1321 in London and was buried on 09 Nov at Gowran, Co. Kilkenny.[1].

He made his will in London on 12 Sep 1321 and was recorded as Sir Edmund Le Botiller, Knight.[1]

The earldom of Carrick

On 01 Sep 1315 Edward II granted Edmund and his heirs the castles and manors of Karryk Makgriffyn and Roskre (Roscrea) in Ireland. Although these lands were deemed to be the earldom of Carrick it appears that he was not granted the title Earl of Carrick.[15]

Per the 1st source, a son Thomas is missing. The name Margaret for the wife of Thomas Dillon needs proof.

The parents and spouse of Edmund should not be marked uncertain.
