  47. SIR JOHN BENNETT PIERS, born in 1772, was the 6th Baronet. He was married to Mary Pratt in August 1776 but she died two years later. In 1815 he was married to Elizabeth King. This marriage was performed in a private home in Douglas, Isle of Man by a Reverend Stewart. A substantial portion of the correspondence in my possession concerns the attempts made to prove the validity of the marriage to legitimize the couple’s daughters, Louisa Adelaide Piers and Florence Anna Maria Stapleton Frederica Piers. The issue was the inability to produce or obtain evidence that a special license was issued permitting the marriage. George, Bishop of Douglas, and later Bishop of Rochester, denied such a license had been issued but subsequent to Sir John’s death a petition to the House of Lords succeeded in removing the stain of bastardry from the daughters. Sir John had two illegitimate sons, William Stapleton Piers and John Piers. • In “The Annals of Westmeath Ancient and Modern”, by James Woods,, Sir John is described as a gambler, duellist and spendthrift and a schoolfellow of Lord Cloncurry. Sir John made a “diabolical wager” with a kindred spirit that he could seduce Lord Cloncurry’s bride and was successful in the deed which resulted in the ruin of Lord and Lady Cloncurry’s marriage. In a famous trial in 1807 Lord Cloncurry sued Sir John for L100,000 and was awarded L20,000 and costs. Piers put in no appearance at the trial but fled to the Isle of Man. Eventually the law secured him and he paid what he could giving his bond for the remainder. Assailed on all sides by his creditors, he retreated to a cottage he had built at Tristernagh, surrounded by a high wall to protect himself from the minions of justice. In the correspondence in the possession of the writer his debts were referred to as in excess of L80,000. • During or just prior to 1834, he and his family took up residence in St. Omer, France and, it appears, he did so to further evade his creditors. The correspondence, which is dated from 1834 to 1854, consists of over 140 letters, mostly written by Sir John’s Dublin solicitor, Mr. T.W. Gahan to Sir John, Lady Elizabeth Piers, Louisa A. Piers and William S. Piers. For the greaterf portion of the period the lettersw indicate the Piers family merely existed on the funds Mr. Gahan was able to obtain for them largely with great difficulty from tenants’ rentals paid for some of the Irish properties. Sir John died on July 22, 1845 and was buried in St. Omer. Lady Elizabeth Piers died on Feb. 17, 1862. Louisa Adelaide Piers never married but Burke’s indicates she became Chanoinesse (whatever that was), of the Royal Order of St. Anne of Bavaria. Her sister Florence was married in July 1842 to Count Louis Le Coat de Kerveguen and she died on October 16, 1906. Her husband was for a time a member of the French Parliament. The closing letters of the correspondence indicate that William L. Piers mounted a gold mining venture to Australia with two other gentlemen and one of the letters from Gahan went to William in Melbourne and concerns the latter’s loss of considerable money shortly after arriving in Australia. Neither the correspondence of Burke’s gives any further clues to what happened to William after that. In fact William’s name does not appear in Burke’s at all, presumably because of his illegitimacy. Sir John and Lady Elizabeth had a second marriage performed in St. Catherines Church Dublin in 1821. Although the House of Lords decision legitimized the daughters, their sex denied either the Baronetcy. Return

  48. SIR HENRY S. PIERS became the 7th Baronet. He was the son of sir John B. Piers’ brother FREDERICK. There was also another brother, Rev.Octavius Piers, Vicar of Preston and Sir John and his two brothers became estranged and this estrangement and it’s consequences are also referred to in the correspondence. Sir Henry S. Piers was born in 1840 and held the Baronetcy until his death in 1850. Return
