Note: Edward Blayney attended the special school built for 20 pupils with private tutor by his ancestors in Matagralane/Randlestown.
Notes about Ancestors: Early in 1700's a Blayney eloped with a young Protestant Lass and all hell broke loose. He was excommunicated from the RC Church and banished by his family. He collected what substance was due to him and bought 4,000 acres of land at Matagralane and Randlestown, County Antrim, Nth Ireland, with the idea of starting a little kingdom of his own. He left a will saying the land could not be sold to any person other than a Blayney or relative by marriage, which order still stands.
They built a special school for 20 pupils which is still in use today, and they have a private tutor. Those who could not find room in this Blayney colony had to go to Randlestown and elsewhere. We are related to at least half the population of the town.
The Estate is now split up into numerous small farms. the Blayneys are nearly all gone and the name of Martin is most predominent, as well as Maloney, O'Keefe and Quinlan. They seem a very happy and well equipped community, all having good homes, and seem quite affluent compared to the Irish living standards.
