John Hamilton of Donegal 1800-1884: This Recklessly Generous Landlord

Front Cover
Woodfield Press, 1998 - Biography & Autobiography - 255 pages
Only a minority of 19th century Irish landlords were benevolent, and few treated their tenants with such consideration as did John Hamilton of Donegal, who almost bankrupted himself in the process. His tenants had good reason to value this humane and progressive proprietor who was well-traveled and spoke six languages.He kept a journal -- upon which this book is based -- recording events on his estate and during his travels around Ireland and on the continent.
