The Londonderry papers
The papers of the Stewart family, Marquesses of Londonderry, are a major resource for the study of local and international history. From their home at Mount Stewart members of the family played significant roles in the history of Ireland, the United Kingdom, and Europe from the eighteenth to the twentieth centuries. They were also major land owners in counties Antrim, Down and Donegal and in the North East of England.
The Londonderry Papers held in PRONI have been brought into public ownership and this workshop intended to highlight the potential of the collection for family and local historians, academics, authors and film makers.
The speakers were: Ian Montgomery on the Londonderry Papers in PRONI, Liz Bregazzi on the Londonderry Papers in Durham Record Office, Frances Bailey on Mount Stewart and the National Trust, Anne Casement on researching the family and Brian Henry Martin on using the archive for television.
