McNeill Research

I popped into town this morning, the principal purpose to undertake research on the family of McNeill and their most distinguished son Ronald, 1st and last Lord Cushendun.

Since the peerage was created in 1927 and Lord Cushendun died in 1934, I required a Burke's or Debrett's peerage running between those years.

Belfast Central Library produced a 1931 Burke's Peerage for me, with the McNeill lineage and an illustration of his lordship's armorial bearings.

Incidentally, Lord Cushendun had a town residence at 18 Cadogan Place, the street where the Rausings reside.

I think it Rausing now, rather than Rausings, sadly
