Lord Trimleston

A carte-de-visite portrait of Lord Trimleston (1796-1879).

According to his obituary in the Times (6 August 1879): ‘We have to announce the death of Thomas Nicholas Barnewall, Lord Trimleston, who died on Monday morning at his residence in Park-lane. The late Baron Trimleston, of Trimleston, county Meath, in the Peerage of Ireland, was the only son of John Thomas, 15th baron, by his wife Maria Theresa, eldest daughter of Mr Richard Kirwan of Cregg, county Galway, and was born in Dublin in 1796. He married in 1836 Margaret Randalina, elder daughter of the late Mr Philip Roche, sister of Lady Louth, and niece to Lord Dunsany, by whom he leaves issue an only daughter, Anna Maria Louisa, married in 1868 to Mr Robert Henry Elliot. The deceased nobleman succeeded as 16th baron at the decease of his father in 1839. It is believed that the ancient barony, created in 1461, becomes extinct at his death.’
