Grey Abbey Video

In this short, three-minute video Flora Montgomery visits her father William Montgomery in 2006 at the family home, Grey Abbey, to establish what happened to the Montgomery territories following Sir Hugh Montgomery’s death in 1636.

The size of the estate was affected by legislation which granted tenant farmers the right to own their lands. We hear about Hugh Montgomery’s role in restoring Grey Abbey.
