Finding Irish ancestors

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date

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.
