    Notes 
    • Ancestor of the Kirkpatrick's of Coolmine, of Donacumper, Co Kildare, and Craigs, Co Antrim

      Family records suggest two of his brothers came with him to Ireland(Family Chronicles,by Alexander de Lapere Kirkpatrick) . No further traces of them seem to exist. It is possible they died unmarried, leaving him their fortunes, perhaps the Ballymena Estate in Antrim, and Ballywoneen in County Tipperary.

      For some years he lived in Belfast, constantly riding up to Dublin, where he took into partnership, Robert Stevelly, of Croydon Park, County of Dublin, who afterwards married his daughter, Jane. Their descendants who still live at Croydon Park, altered the spelling of the name to Stavely, early in the 19th century.

      About 1770, he bought the estates of Coolmine and Drumcondra, in the County of Dublin, and some years later Ballymoon and Talbotstown, in County Wicklow; as well as house property in Dublin.

      It will be noted that he and his first cousin, William of Conheath, use the same family names, pertaining to the Kirkmichael Kirkpatrick's . Margaret, Elizabeth, Jane, Alexander, Thomas, William
    • (Research):The Platt, Lyman. Irish Records Extraction Database records Alexander as marrying Elizabeth Henderson in 1740 and not Mary Mitchell.Alexander de Lapere Kirkpatrick( a descendant of this family) recorded the first wife as Mary and I defer to his family records detailed in the family bible..
