Visitors Welcome

IMG_1479

Here is Russborough, County Wicklow, a house long close to my heart. Engraved from a drawing by John Preston Neale, this image appeared in the second series of Views of the Seats of Noblemen and Gentlemen in the United Kingdom published in 1826. Russborough opens to the public for the season tomorrow so do think of paying a visit in the coming months, whether by horse or other means of transport.

    A place close to my heart also. I am the 5th great grand daughter of Joseph Leeson, first Earl of Milltown and his 3rd wife Elizabeth French, descending down from their son Robert (and wife Grace Head), their son Robert (and wife Elizabeth Marshall) and their daughter Jane who married Horaito de Courcy Martelli (grandson of William Godfrey, 1st Baronet of Kilcolman Abbey, Milltown, Co Kerry). They came to New Zealand in 1857, to which I live.
