About Edward Blayney, 1st Baron Blayney


Sir Edward Blayney, also Blainey or Blaney (1570-1629?) was a Welsh soldier in Ireland. He became Baron Blayney of Monaghan in the Peerage of Ireland.

After Lord Mountjoy occupied Moyry Pass in 1600 dismantling the Irish earthworks there, he marched to Mountnorris (halfway between Newry and Armagh) where he built an earthwork fort and left a garrison of 400 men under the command of Blayney, then a captain.

He married Anne, a daughter of Adam Loftus, as her third husband.
