Shelton Abbey

near Arklow, County Wicklow, Ireland - Earl of Wicklow


"Shelton Abbey, about fifty miles from Dublin, lies at the foot of the wooded hills where the Vale of Avoca opens to the sea. The old house was completely altered and the new part added in the beginning of the present century.

The estate of Shelton came into the possession of the Howard family in 1643, when an ancestor of the present proprietor sold his property in England and bought in Ireland instead. During the reign of James the Second the property was forfeited to a Mr Hackett, Mr Howard and his family having been obliged to fly the country and return to England. When the peace was restored and William the Third proclaimed King, Mr Howard and his family returned to Ireland and their estates were restored to them. In 1778 the descendant of Mr Howard was raised to the Peerage as Baron Clonmore and Viscount Wicklow."
