Title: Earl of Clancarty, 11 Feb 1803, Garbally, Ballinasloe, County Galway, Ireland. 1 His choice of this title is said to have been derived from a tenuous link to the Munster Earls of Clancarty, who had been deprived of the title by the English Crown. He therefore became the first Earl of Clancarty in its second creation. (According to newspaper article: He was advanced to the Earldom of Clancarty, Co Cork, in 1803, in consequence of his descent from Elena McCarthy, wife of John Power, daughter of Cormac Oge McCarthy, Viscount Muskerry and sister of Donagh McCarthy, Viscount Muskerry, and sister of Donagh McCarthy, Earl of Clancarty in the time of Charles II.)


William married Anne Gardiner, daughter of Rt Hon. Charles Gardiner and Florinda Norman, on 30 Oct 1762.1 (Anne Gardiner was born in Dublin, Leinster, Ireland and died on 8 Jul 1829 1.)
