Templetown Papers

Estate papers of the Upton Family, Lords Templetown, concerning lands in Templepatrick, Co. Antrim and in Co. Monaghan, 1838-90. Comprising approx. 200 documents and title deeds etc, these papers chart the development and management of the estate in Antrim and Monaghan during the 19th century. Although fairly limited in quantity, the available documentation is full of quality. Included are c.30 family settlements, mortages, abstracts of title, etc, c.1860-1890, particularly for townlands in the parishes of Muckno, Ballybay and Clontibret, Co. Monaghan. Under PRONI reference D/988, there is a deed relating to the Templeton estate in counties Antrim and Monaghan in the nineteenth century. Of particular interest (see D/585/60) for the local historian and genealogist is an August 1838 Grant of annuity from Viscount Templeton to William Brougham comprising a 1st schedule-rentroll of Templetown's Monaghan estate with the spelling of placenames as in current usage.
