•   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

  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.

•   Stephen HARRINGTON Jr. was a grantee at Cornwallis, Kings Co., N.S., in 1764 [A. W. H. Eaton. 1910. The
    History of Kings County, Nova Scotia. Salem, MA: Salem Press]. According to Eaton, he came to Cornwallis from
    North Kingston, Washington Co., RI, but he may actually have come from [or at least been born in] Connecticut.
    Eaton says he was descended from Robert HARRINGTON of Watertown, MA [see GROUP 1], but I haven't been
    able to make that connection, yet.
•   From Eaton's "History of Kings County", Kings County township books, cemetery records, and probate records,
    I've pieced together some of this family. [Joan Peters of Australia, who I "met" on the internet, also provided
    information on the descendants of Daniel HARRINGTON.]

 Nova Scotia Museum Curator Harry Piers and his wife were out for a drive when they stopped
for a visit at the summer wigwam of Henry and Susan Sack of Shubenacadie. Susan especially
  dressed in her "traditional" costume for the occasion of the photograph—which was taken,
says Piers, "at 4:30 PM, Friday 13 September, 1935." Harry Piers bought the woodsplint fishing
                       creel in the foreground for the museum collection.

                            History of Piers Family
•   Majority condensed from Burke’s Peerage 1970 edition, with comments added based
    on information from other sources (Letter of Temple Foster Piers dated 1844, and
    from two articles published in the “Westmeath Examiner” in late1992 and early 1993)

• CAPT. WILLIAM PIERS, of York, England, was sent to Ireland by
  Queen Elizabeth I (whom he is said to have saved at one time “from
  the fury of her sister ‘Bloody Mary’ by conveying her privately away”)
  in 1566 and given a considerable post in the Army. He was
  rewarded by grants of land of great value, particularly of the Abbey
  of Castle and received a reward of 1000 marks in 1569 for bringing
  in the head of the rebel Shane O’Neill to be displayed on a pike in
  Dublin on the orders of Sir Philip Sydney. He died in 1602 and was
  succeeded by his only son HENRY PIERS (buried at Church of
  Templecross) who married Jane, daughter of Thomas Jones,
  Archbishop of Dublin. He died 16 September 1623.

• SIR WILLIAM PIERS was the son of Henry Piers, married Martha,
  daughter of Sir James Ware (also buried at Templecross), was
  knighted and died in April 1638.
•   SIR HENRY PIERS was born in 1628 and was created a Baronet of Ireland
    on 18 February 1660 taking the title of Baronet of Tristernagh Abbey,
    County Westmeath. He married Mary, daughter of Henry Jones, Protestant
    Bishop of Meath by whom he had eight sons and six daughters. He died
    1691. CAPTAIN THOMAS PIERS was one of his younger sons, served in
    the Army and died in 1728. Thomas’ son LEWIS PIERS went to Nova
    Scotia with Cornwallis and was present at the foundation of Halifax on June
    21, 1749. Several descendents still reside in Nova Scotia.

•   SIR WILLIAM PIERS was the 2nd Baronet but died in 1693 after enjoying
    the title for only 2 years.

•   SIR HENRY PIERS was the 3rd Baronet and he died from an opium dose in
    1733.

•   SIR JOHN PIERS was the 4th Baronet. He married his first cousin, Cornelia
    Gertrude Southwell Pigott of Cappard, Queens, Co. He died in 1746 and
    she lived until Jan. 1777.

•   SIR PIGOTT WILLIAM PIERS was the 5th Baronet. He married Elizabeth,
    daughter and heiress of John Smythe of Dublin.
•   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.

•   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.
•   SIR EUSTACE FITSMAURICE PIERS, son of the above, became the 8th Baronet.
    He was a Major in the Manchester Regiment, was born in 1840 and died in 1913 after
    holding the title for 63 years from the age of 10.
•   SIR CHARLES PIGOTT PIERS, Sir Eustache’s son became the 9th Baronet. He
    served in the Boer War and in World War I. He took up residence in British Columbia
    and was the author of “Sport Life in British Columbia”.
•   SIR CHARLES ROBERT FITZMAURICE PIERS, is the 10th Baronet. He was born in
    August 1903 and succeeded his father to the Baronetcy in 1945. He served in the
    R.C.N.V.R. in World War II and the 1970 Edition of Burke’s listed his address as Box
    503 Duncan B.C. and his occupation as Manager of the Duncan Branch of Doherty,
    Roadhouse & McQuaig. His son JAMES DESMOND PIERS was born July 24, 1947
    and graduated from University of Victoria with a B.A. He is the Godson of Rear
    Admiral Desmond W. Piers of Chester N.S., a descendent of Lewis Piers, and who
    was most helpful to the writer in assembling the foregoing data.

•   As a matter of additional interest, Admiral Pies told the writer one PIERS ancestor
    was PIERS GALVESTON, a contemporary of the early Norman monarchs and who
    spent considerable time in Ireland subduing the native Irish.
