Mary Molesworth, second daughter, is famous in her own right as a poetess
enough to make the old DNB and an entry in Wikipedia for herself as well

her husband is called "George /Monck/ of St Stephens' Green, Dublin"
he died in 1726
she was his first wife, by whom, two daughters and a son

The elder of the two daughters Sarah Monck

Robert Mason and Sarah Monck had at least two children, sons, although perhaps more

The elder son is in Wikipedia
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Monck_Mason
John Monck Mason, where they give him a birth year of 1726

He had a younger brother Henry Monck Mason Lt Col
whom we see mentioned here in a bio of his own son

https://www.dib.ie/biography/mason-henry-joseph-monck-a5493

and here in Burke's

We can now return to
https://www.dib.ie/biography/mason-henry-joseph-monck-a5493
to get more details on the life of
Henry Joseph /Monck Mason/ , esq, LL.D.; writer
born 15 Jul 1778
Powerscourt; third son
died 14 Apr 1858
buried at Powerscourt

I should mention, for those who follow such things, that this line are descendants of Edward III
specifically through Leticia Coote, the wife of
Robert Molesworth, 1st Viscount /Molesworth/ , G

and yes, we *will* eventually, if my hunch is correct, get to the family of someone quite famous

Henry Monck Mason was married twice
His second wife being Jane /Mosse/ daughter of
Bartholomew /Mosse/ , founder of the Rotunda Hospital, Dublin; DW

Bartholomew's own biographiies give us details like
born 1712 Maryborough (now Portlaoise), Ireland
died 16 Feb 1759 Dublin, Ireland

that his daughter Jane was born in 1746
daughter of his second wife and apparently cousin Jane /Wittingham/

His wife Edith has predeceased him
His administration (with Will) (Limited) is being granted to who I presume now to be two of his children (if not all of them) Pierce Langrishe Moore and Edith Violet Moore

It seems at the moment like all of Lewis' children were most likely born in India

We see a son Cecil

I mean he is famous, but perhaps not quite as famous as the fact that
after his marriage to
Joan Ursula Greenup
b 20 Mar 1925 Enniskillin, Ireland
the daughter of Maurice Edwin Greenop and his wife Sheila McGuire

they had at least one child, a daughter Jill G Moore born in 1951 in Surrey
who, in 1971 in Westminster married a certain Peter Brian Gabriel
