Finding Irish ancestors

I am tracing a very close friends family tree for her. Her 5 x great grandfather was a John Butler born in 1736 in Billingsley, Shropshire and he married a Mary Easthorpe. We know his father was a also a John Butler born about 1709 but we have become stuck. She knows the family originally came over from Ireland but has no idea when and we are wondering if it was John Butler (1709) that brought the family over.

Can anyone tell me where or how I cann find out any more information.

Thank you for that info. It is really helpful. Anymore info regarding his mother Mary Estep would also be helpful.

Anne, all I did was look on Familysearch. There is nothing else re. Mary Estep, but a few references to Mary Estop//Estopp/Easthope etc etc in Shropshire.
You might as well have a rummage around yourself really! Much more fun.
Haven't seen anything to indicate an Irish connection.
