  • History

This article explores connections between Welsh and Irish landed estates and their families in the period c.1650– c.1920. After a brief overview of the historical context in both nations, it examines different categories of connections, including those based on geographical proximity and the establishment of transport networks, military service and the holding of local and national office, connections with empire, land purchase, marital and family connections, and connections based on political activism, education and cultural and antiquarian interest. These different strands demonstrate a range of interactions between the landed families of both nations indicating rich opportunities for further research.
