This is a document summarising some of the most interesting and significant content within the Brownlow archive (D1928) held in PRONI.


The Brownlow Papers consist of 520 volumes and around 9,300 numbered documents.

With some exceptions, they can be described as an estate archive, documenting the history and management of the Brownlows' estate.  It relates largely to their land in the manors of Brownlowsderry and Richmount in the Lurgan area, Co. Armagh, including Lurgan town itself and the adjacent areas of west Down and south-west Antrim, 1619 to 1960, but also to property in Magheracloone parish, barony of Farney, Co. Monaghan, 1753 to 94, and in Philipstown parish, Barony of Ardee, Co. Louth, 1753.
