This is the Capt. Anthony Wayne that fought gallantly and distinguished himself at the Battle of the Boyne. He is the grandfather of Maj. Gen. Anthony Wayne. He settled in County Wicklow, Ireland on land granted him for service to the King. It is said he tired of the Irish People and the social habits of Ireland.
