  Baron Dufferin and Claneboye - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Baron Dufferin and Claneboye of Ballyleidy and Killyleagh in County Down is a title in the Peerage of Ireland that was created for Dorcas Lady Blackwood, the widow of Sir John Blackwood, 2nd Baronet on July 31, 1800.
The smallest estate of all was on the other side of Bangor, at Ballyholme, and the last property - somewhat isolated from the rest - lay on the Irish Sea coast of the Ards Peninsula, composed of a group of townlands in the neighbourhood of the village of Ballywalter.
In 1850 the young, ambitious and well-connected 5th Baron was created Baron Clandeboye of Clandeboye, County Down in the Peerage of the United Kingdom, giving him a seat in the House of Lords, then Earl of Dufferin and Viscount Clandeboye in 1871 and finally Marquess of Dufferin and Ava and Earl of Ava in 1888.

Killyleagh - Cill Ó Laoch - Church of the Descendants of the Heroes
The origins of the history of Killyleagh are lost in the mists of time but there is evidence of prehistoric man in the district and the many raths still visible around Strangford Lough point to settlements in medieval times.
Descendants of the family held the lands around Killyleagh until the Irish Land Acts saw the local tenants acquiring their own properties by the end of the 19th century and the castle is still lived in today by the Rowan-Hamilton family.
