by William Roulston


List Price


Expected publication date: 31 July 2024

Written by the Foundation's Research Director, Dr William Roulston, Abercorn: The Hamiltons of Barons Court explores in considerable detail the history of one of Ulster's best-known families. Ten years on from its first publication, and due to continued demand, we are reprinting this beautifully illustrated book in 2024.

In fascinating detail this lavishly illustrated book tells the absorbing story of one of the most remarkable families in British and Irish history from its rise to prominence in late fifteenth century Scotland through to its role today in Northern Ireland and beyond.

The family's contributions to local and national politics, science, the arts, architecture, education, the armed forces, forestry and estate management are all explored, as are their relationships with each other, their tenants, the Royal Family, and other landed families.

After more than ten years of detailed research, the author of this magisterial volume is Dr William Roulston who has also written the Foundation's bestselling, Researching Scots-Irish Ancestors: The essential genealogical guide to early modern Ulster 1600-1800.
