Incidentally, as many will be aware, one of Prince Andrew's subsidiary titles is Baron Killyleagh.
I have already written about the royal physician and pre-eminent collector, Sir Hans Sloane, 1st and last Baronet.
He was born in 1660 in the Sloane family's thatched house at Frederick Street, within a stone's throw of the Castle.
I photographed the location and a carved stone inscribed "1637, "GS", "MW", and "Rebuilt 1880".
GS likely stands for George Sloane.
The old house was demolished in 1970.
