Biographical / Historical

Aubrey Thomas De Vere (1814 – 1902) was the third son of Sir Aubrey De Vere, 2nd baronet Curragh (28 August 1788 – 5 July 1846) and Mary Rice (26 November 1788 – 11 February 1856). De Vere’s siblings included Sir Stephen De Vere, 3rd Baronet Curragh, and Elinor O’Brien. A member of Ireland’s Anglo-Irish aristocracy, De Vere was educated at Trinity College Dublin where he read Kant and Coleridge. In 1851 he left the Church of Ireland and converted to Catholicism while in Avignon, France. De Vere lived out his life at his family’s estate at Curraghchase in Limerick, never marrying.
