  • Formerly part of the furnishings of Browne's Hill,Carlow, Co. Carlow Ireland.
    Browne's Hill was a distinguished 18th century house built in 1763 for Robert Browne (1729-1816) to the design of an architect named Peters. Some alterations were carried out in 1842, probably to the design of Thomas Alfred Cobden. Browne's Hill was sold by Lt.Col W.P Browne-Clayton in 1951. (see Mark Bence-Jones 'A guide to Irish Country Houses', revised 1988, Constable & Company Ltd).
    The Browne family arrived in Ireland in 1654 from Wickham in Buckinghamshire. They settled in Carlow and expanded their interests through marriage and investing in land. By 1879 they owned in excess of 12,000 acres in Carlow, Wexford, Dublin, Queens County, Kilkenny, Lancashire and Cheshire.
