Buttimer Family of Derreen

BUTTIMER FAMILY HISTORY
prepared by Pat Hamel

The Buttimer Family came from England to Ireland.  In a letter February 2, 1930 Paul Shorten Buttimer wrote  "As regards the origin of the family I am rather at sea. As well as I can make out they came over with Cromwell, and settled in the valley of the Bandon River  - some of the name are still there.  The family burial  ground is at Murragh, Desertserges which is bounded on one side of the Bandon River" . Stanley W.H. Buttimer wrote on May 6th, 1976   "...Paul, seems to have been a fairly prominent member of the clan, perhaps because he was the first known academic having been a schoolmaster in Bandon, Co. Cork and a lecturer at Trinity College, Dublin.  It was Paul, I believe, who compiled a family tree going back to an officer in Cromwell's army who settled in Ireland.  Unfortunately this record was accidentally destroyed at the beginning of the last war."
