Glenmore Lodge

THE STYLE BARONETS WERE MAJOR LANDOWNERS IN COUNTY DONEGAL, WITH 39,564 ACRES


SIR HUMPHREY STYLE, knight, of Langley, son of Sir John Style, knight, alderman of London, during the reign of HENRY VII, and grandson of William Style, of Ipswich.

Sir Humphrey was sheriff of Kent in the reign of HENRY VIII, and one of the esquires of the body to that monarch.

Dying in 1557, he was succeeded by his 2nd son,

OLIVER STYLE, of Wateringbury, Kent, who died in 1622 and was succeeded by his only surviving son,

SIR THOMAS STYLE, 1st Baronet, of Wateringbury, who was created a baronet in 1627. His lineal descendant,

SIR CHARLES STYLE, 5th Baronet, whose younger brother, the Rev Robert Style, was vicar of Wateringbury and rector of Mereworth.

The Rev Robert Style's eldest son,

CHARLES STYLE, of Glenmore, Stranorlar, County Donegal, was born in 1777.

Charles Style married, in 1812, Frances, eldest daughter of John Cochrane, of Edenmore, Stranorlar. Mr Style died in 1853.

SIR THOMAS CHARLES STYLE JP DL (1797-1879), 8th Baronet, inherited the Glenmore estate in County Donegal. His cousin,

SIR WILLIAM HENRY MARSHAM STYLE JP DL (1826-1904), 9th Baronet, of Glenmore.

It is thought that Sir William Frederick Style, 13th Baronet (born 1945) lives in the USA.


The Lodge, Glenmore, was a Georgian house, built in the mid to late 18th century.

It was re-worked for Sir William Style, in the neo-Tudor style, in the early 20th century.


The house was demolished in the 1990s.

The Glenmore estate is well-known for its game activities.

It is sad that this house was demolished. Just in case Ballybofey/Stranorlar were not depressing enough.

Do you know when? This pamphlet published in 2000 said it was still standing. At that time one of the gatelodges now in ruins, was occupied.
