Anthony Francis Nugent, 9th Earl of Westmeath, (1 November 1805 – 12 May 1879)

Nugent was a descendant of Richard Nugent, 2nd Earl of Westmeath, but the title had been carried by a different line of the Nugents, with his own family taking the title Baron Nugent of Riverston. However, upon the death of his kinsman, George Nugent, 1st Marquess of Westmeath, he succeeded as the 9th Earl though the marquessate became extinct. On 5 May 1871, he simultaneously became the 14th Baron Delvin and 9th Earl of Westmeath.

He married Anne Catherine Daly, a daughter of Malachy Daly of Raford, Kiltullagh, County Galway, and a descendant of Dermot Ó Daly of Killimordaly, County Galway. Their children were:

  • Captain Malachy Daly Nugent of the 67th regiment, killed in action during the Taiping Rebellion, China, 20 Oct 1862.
  • Julia Catherine Anne Nugent (3 Jun 1830-25 Jun 1859), married George Browne, 3rd Marquess of Sligo, but had not issue.
  • Lady Mary Frances Nugent (5 b. 3 Oct 1831-1 Sep 1892), married Sir Thomas Burke, 3rd Baronet and had six children.
  • William St George Nugent, 10th Earl of Westmeath, (28 Nov 1832-31 May 1883)
  • Hon. Charles Anthony Nugent (10 Mar 1836-8 Nov 1906) married Gertrude O'Conor of Mount Druid, County Roscommon, but had no issue.
