1779: an annus mirabilis for Armar Lowry Corry, heir to the Lowry Corry estates and political power in Fermanagh and Tyrone when he moved up in the heady world of Irish society and politics as Baron Belmore with marriage arranged to a beautiful young wife and heiress, Henrietta Hobart of Blickling Hall, Norfolk, eldest daughter of the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, the Earl of Buckinghamshire.
To celebrate he built a great fashionable house. One year later his life was in despair; his marriage over, leaving him with a baby girl and a sickly son. The expense of building and politicking made him ‘poor as a rat’ He joined his son in a bitter but frustrated challenge to the Union with England resulting in their exclusion from political power for many years.
