Part of Charleville Forest Papers
Newspaper cuttings from The King's County Chronicle, detailing a public reception highlighting the return of the Earl of Charleville, with the Countess and their daughter, Lady Catherine Bury to the Charleville estate, Tullamore. In residing for a short period on the estate, the Earl had “acquired the estimation and respect of all with whom he came into contact”, and now his declaration to reside permanently on the estate at Charleville, “gave great and general satisfaction”. Preparations were made by the inhabitants “of all ranks, creeds and classes… and unanimous resolutions were passed to give his Lordship and family as cordial and respectful a public reception as they were capable of”. It was also intended, on behalf of the Earl’s tenantry, to invite the family to a banquet, “and also for that of laying before him and the Countess an address of congratulation”.
Bury, Arabella, 3rd countess of Charleville
