After graduating from Trinity College, Dublin, Ireland, in 1683, Robert Lowcay migrated to Ireland from the Isle of Mann. He took a position as Rector at St James Dunbrody & Killesk, Dioceses of Ferns, Co. Wexford, Ireland.

Four generations of the Lowcay family followed, based mainly around Ross.

He had two sons, Anthony and Standish Snr. Standish had two sons; Henry,and Anthony who appear to have been twins. It is not recorded if Anthony had children, ans is assumed not.

Henry left Ireland and became a Royal Navy officer at Portsea, England.

Anthony remained in Ireland, living at Arthurstown. His occupation, and that of some of his descendants, is not known. His grandson, Jonas King Lowcay, became the last of the Lowcay line in Ireland.

One of Anthony Lowcay's sons was another Standish Lowcay. He was said to have been a magistrate, who lived at Kilhile House. He was also a townsman tennant, and lived in 1803 on the western perimeter of the Chichester estate, Shelburne baroncy.

After his death, Standish was succeeded in Kilhile by his nephew Jonas King Lowcay, who died there in 1892.
