Introduction to the Dunleath Papers
This is a document summarising some of the most interesting and significant content within the archive (D1167 and D4179) held in PRONI.
The Dunleath Papers fall into two categories:
- an estate archive (D1167) comprising around 100 volumes and around 4,000 documents, 1765 to 1970, deposited over the years by successive Lords Dunleath or their agents and representatives
- a personal archive (occupying 22 PRONI boxes and running to around 15,000 documents, mostly in original files or folders) deriving from the 4th Lord Dunleath (1933 to 1993), deposited in 1998 by his widow, Dorinda, Lady Dunleath (D4179)
