Lurgan Coat of Arms The Armagh Guardian

26 December, 1904  


The distinguished Dowager Lady Lurgan is touring Australia with her son, the Hon. Francis Cecil Brownlow. Lady Lurgan is a sister of the Dowager Lady Beaumont, and it is noteworthy that neither Lady Beaumont nor her younger sister (who married a grandson of Sir Kildare Borrowes, Bart.) changed their initials on marriage, and more remarkable. still is the fact that the youngest sister, Lady Lurgan, retained her patronymic with an addition, she being the Hon Emily Anne Browne (daughter of John Cavendish Browne, third Lord Kilmaine) when she married Charles Brownlow, second Lord Lurgan, K.P.

It is not generally known that Lord Lurgan's name is not paternally Brownlow, but Chamberlain, a certain Sir Arthur Chamberlain having adopted the surname of Brownlow on account of his father's marriage and co-heiress of Sir William Brownlow, of Doughcoron.


The information on this website is free and will always be so. However, there are many documents and records that we would like to show here that are only available for sale. If you would like to make a donation to the Lurgan Ancestry project, however small (or large!), to enable us to acquire these records, it would be very much appreciated. We could cover our pages in Goggle Ads to raise money, but feel that this would detract from the information we are trying to provide. You can also help us to raise money by purchasing some of our ebooks on our sister website:
