His primary education, however, was in the family's business—first farming, then the hand manufacture and "drumming" marketing of tobacco products, and finally, the mass production and mass marketing of cigarettes. On 15 March he had fought and won the bloody battle of Kilrush with great slaughter of the rebels, displaying sound generalship and personal courage. In Decemberhe married Lady Elizabeth Preston. His birth house in Clerkenwell belonged to his maternal grandfather.

      In MarchOrmonde ventured his troops to New Rossdeep in life of James territory of the Catholic Confederation, and won a small but indecisive victory there Battle of New Ross before returning to Dublin. The Irish Confederates wanted to make a compromise now. He raised the siege of Drogheda, but from the further march on Newry which he proposed he was stopped by letters of recall from the lords justices. He succeeded, however, in making a temporary arrangement with Monroe, the commander of the Scotch forces, whereby union was established until the arrival in October of Sir R. Most of the country was taken by the Catholic rebels, who included Ormonde's Butler relatives. In investigating the careers of other men of this time we are always face to face with intrigue and mystery.

So active was he in his charge that by the middle of July the troops came to the rendezvous at Carrickfergus in complete readiness for action.

James Butler, 1st Duke of Ormonde

At the end of October he received full instructions from Charles, who was in the Isle of Duke of Ormond book. Inhe went disguised, and at great risk, on a secret mission into England to gain trustworthy intelligence as to the chances of an uprising.

Though of an amiable disposition, his married life was unhappy. The Old native Irish and Catholic Irish of English descent "Old English" were represented in Confederate Ireland - essentially an independent Duke of Ormond book government based in Kilkenny - who wanted to come to terms with King Charles I of England in return for religious toleration and self-government.

At the same life of James, in obedience to special instructions, he exerted himself to keep the Scotch army from joining their fellows in Scotland. Lifelong Methodists, the two brothers practiced the kind of financial stewardship encouraged by their Duke of Ormond book and instilled in them by their father.

He had, for instance, billeted soldiers on civilians and executed martial law Pepys, 4 Nov.

He reached Ross, in which the rebels were entrenched, on the 12th, but in an assault was beaten off, and through want of provisions was compelled to raise the siege on the 17th, and give battle on the 18th to Preston, who had under his command nearly 7, men.

A synod held in at the Augustinian abbey in Jamestown, County Leitrimrepudiated the Duke and excommunicated his followers.
