The O'Connell Baronetcy, of Lakeview in Killarney in the County of Kerry and of Ballybeggan in Tralee in the County of Kerry, is a title in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom. It was created on 29
October 1869 for James O'Connell. He was the youngest brother of the Liberator, Daniel O'Connell and the nephew of the soldier Lieutenant-General Daniel Charles, Count O'Connell. Turbotstown House has strong historical connections with the Dease Family, an important and noteworthy family of soldiers, scholars and clergymen, who had their seat at Turbotstown from c.1450 until 1926. The present Turbotstown House occupies the site of an earlier marked on the Down Survey Map of the area 1654-6. Granstown Manor in Ballacolla, near Rathdowney, was formerly the home Lord Castletown. In the 17th century, the Fitzpatricks lost considerable territory through their staunch resistance to the Cromwellian invasion and later for their support of James II. Nevertheless, the head of the clan received a peerage in 1714. Records from 1878 show that no less than 22,000 acres of the finest land in Upper Ossory was owned by the family. From 1541 to 1937, the head of this family bore titles of Baron of Cullahill and Castletown, Lord of Upper Ossory, Lord Gowran, Earl of Upper Ossory and Lord Castletown.

The Putland family came into possession of the estates of the Earl of Clancarty in County Cork which had been confiscated due to their support of the Jacobite cause. They also had lands in the barony of Barrymore and lands in the barony of Fermoy, formerly part of the estate of Sir Richard Nagle. Burke's Landed Gentry 1886 & records the marriage in 1738 of John Putland of Dublin and Catherine daughter and eventual co-heiress of Sir Emanuel Moore of Ross Carbery, County Cork. John Putland occupied a high postion in the Free Masons. Doory Hall is an estate and now-ruined historic building in County Longford, Ireland. It was the home of the Jessop family, for whom it was extensively remodelled by the architect John Hargrave. It was the birthplace of the playwright George H. Jessop. George H. Jessop was an Irish playwright, journalist and novelist who lived and worked in the United States for many years. His numerous works included the opera Shamus O'Brien (written with Charles Villiers Stanford) and the novel Gerald Ffrench's Friends. He was the brother of the Irish writer Mary Kathleen Jessop.

William Monsell, (1812-94), 1st Baron Emly of Tervoe and politician was reared in an atmosphere of devotion to the union with Britain, loyalty to the Church of Ireland, and allegiance to the tory party. He was educated at Winchester College and Oriel College, Oxford, where he first came under the influence of his great friend and mentor, John Henry (later Cardinal) Newman. Monsell left Oxford without taking a degree, but his English education had given him a lifelong interest in literary and intellectual matters. He returned to Ireland to manage his grandfather's estates and properties, which he inherited on the latter's death in 1836. A man of considerable wealth and social standing, he was also serious, conscientious, and fair-minded. His long political career began at this time, when he served as High Sheriff of County Limerick (1835) and unsuccessfully contested Limerick city in the 1837 general election. In 1850 he converted to Roman Catholicism under the influence of Newman. This process of conversion occurred over a prolonged period in the late 1840s, and coincided with a change in his political allegiance from Tory to Whig. Tervoe House, County Limerick was built in 1776 by Cononel William T. Maunsell on the site of an earlier house. The Synge Baronetcy, of Kiltrough in the County of Meath, is a title in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom created on 12 August 1801 for Robert Synge.

She was a renowned beauty who caused a scandal by being bequeathed the 'Teck emeralds' among other jewels, from her lover, Prince Francis of Teck, brother of Queen Mary. She also reputedly had a liaison with Edward VII, a frequent visitor to the Kilmorey estates at Mourne Park, County Down. Walter G. Strickland (1850-1928) was an English art historian, bibliographer, antiquary. He wrote ;A dictionary of Irish artists' (1913).
