Sir George Thomas 
Staunton
1781 - 1859


Sir George Thomas 
Staunton
, only son of Leigh Park, was the last of the line of the Stauntons that first went to Ireland in 1634, his great great great grandfather, George Staunton Esq., a military officer, under the rule of Charles I, acquired considerable landed property and settled in Cargin, County Galway. The Staunton family can be successfully traced beck to Sir Malgar de Staunton who defended Belvoir Castle against William the Conqueror, and after whom the chief tower in that castle is still named Staunton Tower. George Staunton, the first Staunton to go to Ireland in 1634, was the second son of Reginald Staunton of Smewens Grange, Buckinghamshire, the lineal descendant of John, third son of Thomas Staunton of Staunton Hall, Nottinghamshire who was tenth in the direct line of Sir Malgar de Staunton, the founder of the family. The Staunton family still live at Staunton Hall, one of the oldest houses in England still to carry the name of its family. The next three generations of Stauntons in Ireland, all appropriately named George Staunton, appear to have lived the life of landed proprietors until we reach father and son, the remarkable Sir George Leonard Staunton Bt., and his son, Sir George Thomas Staunton.
