Some 40 years ago I met Lord Congleton's youngest grandson, Mr Desmond Mandeville. He couldn't tell me much about his grandfather, but here are some details of his paternal ancestry:
John Shaw Mandeville [“the Hermit”] of Ballinahy, co. Tipperary (c.1775 - Oct 1842) married (1803) Sophia Herbert (d. of Rev Nicholas Herbert) and their younger son was Rev. Nicholas Herbert Mandeville (1806-1859), who attended Trin. Coll. Dublin: (Adm. 1822 BA 1830, BD 1832) and (ordained 1832) was chaplain to the Marquess of Waterford.
He married (1840) Elizabeth Roe (d. of John Roe) and inherited and extended the family property at Ballinahy and renamed it Anner Castle where his son Henry was born. (His architect Charles Frederick Anderson emigrated to the USA in 1849, and the work was completed in 1857 by William Atkins.)
He and his wife had four sons, the eldest of whom was Henry Ambrose Mandeville (12 June 1841 - 23 May 1917).
H.A.M. was a Lieutenant in the Royal Navy and served in the Abyssinian expedition (1868). He married ([1] 3 May 1881) Maud Augusta St George Heyman (d. of Major-Gen. Henry Heyman of Shanganagh Castle, co. Dublin.) They had four daughters Maud, Gladys, Winifred and Catherine. His first wife died 2 March 1891. In the Census of 1891, H.A.M. is a widower living on Woolwich Common (with his widowed mother in his household.)
He then married ([2] 21 Nov 1895) Hon Sarah Cecilia Parnell (27 years younger than himself,) Lord Congleton's daughter by his third marriage.
Their children were John Parnell (1896); Catherine Cecilia (1899); Geoffrey Fortescue (1901) Maurice (1904); Desmond (1910.) There is no entry for the family in the 1901 census when they were probably in their Irish residence (Anner Castle) but in 1911 they are living at 32 Woolwich Common.
In the 'Retrospections of Dorothea Herbert, 1770-1806', 2 vols, (London: G Howe, 1929-30), H.A.M.’s great-aunt described the earlier Mandeville family as having decayed through ‘extravagance and eccentricities.’

Thanks a lot! I managed to find one record in Kelly's Handbook 1901 for his marriage that gave him as the eldest son of Rev N.H. Mandeville, so as you have stated,

Eldest son of the Reverend Nicholas Herbert MANDEVILLE
son of John Shaw Mandeville
son of Ambrose Mandeville
son of John MANDEVILLE b: 1682 in Ballinahy, Mullinahone, Co Tipperary, Ireland
