Barton of Kildare

Barton of Kildare

Amongst those soldiers who assembled in London on that stormy spring afternoon was Thomas Barton, a young Protestant from Lancashire. Thomas seems to have done well in Ireland as nearly ten years later he was rewarded for his services with 1000 acres in the Barony of Lurg, County Fermanagh. When the Borough of Enniskillen received its royal charter in 1612-1613, Thomas was one of the first Burgesses of the town. He built a stone house, two stories high, with a high wall around it, on the summit of Rosclare Hilltop near Kesh.
