Anthony John Baptist Walsh was the second Earl Walsh.

On 28th October 1765 at St. Georges-sur-Loire, he married his cousin Marie Josephine Dorothea, eldest daughter of Francis James (Walsh), first Count de Serrant, and Mary daughter of Thomas Harper.

He was appointed Chamberlain to the Empress Maria Theresa of the House of Habsburg in 1772. The family appears to have lived in France for many years. At the time of the French Revolution (1789-1799) the Earl, and presumably his family, were compelled to emigrate to Sclessin near Liege (now Belgium) before settling for a time in London.

Walsh subsequently left Europe to look after his family property in Saint-Domingue, in the Caribbean. He died in Kingston, Jamaica on 26th April 1798 aged 53 years and is buried in the Catholic Cemetery there.
