Meanwhile, Henry’s younger brother Robert Ellis, born in January 1726, settled at Draper Hill, Lisnaskea, a plantation town with a flourishing flax industry, located midway between Clones and Enniskillen. He married Penelope Leslie (d. July 1823), daughter of the Reverend Alexander Leslie of Aghnaloo, Co. Fermanagh. Penelope’s grandfather, the Rev. William Leslie was Rector of Aghavea for 50 years and descended from Alexander Leslie, 4th Baron Pitcaple, of the House of Bartolf. Robert Ellis succeeded to the family estate in Monaghan on his fathers’ death in the summer of 1773.
