One of the bedrooms at Abbey Leix

ABBEY LEIX Abbey Leix came to the Veseyfamily by the marriage of Sir Thomas Vesey 1st Baronet, who, like several generations of his family, was a cleric, and indeed a Bishop, to Mary Muscbamp in 1698. The estate was given to the young couple by her father, Denny Muschamp, but the gift was less generous than it appeared as the property turned out to be a contested Crown Lease which took seventy years of litigation to resolve and secure the Freehold. It was only with the final resolution of tbe oumersbip in 1770 that the 2nd Baronet, created Lord Knapton in 1750, felt secure enough of bis tenure to build a new bouse on tbe estate uibicb be much improved, planting trees, draining the land and erecting neuifarms and cottages.

He cbose lames Wyatt as his architect, and Wyatt 's designs dated 1 772 still survive, divided between tbe three Wyatt albums in the National Library, Dublin, The Metropolitan Museum, New York, and The Victoria & Albert Museum, London. As executed, tbe house has a simpler plan than proposed by Wyatt, with straightforward rectangular rooms rather than elaborate geometrical forms, and this no doubt reflects the fact that Vvyatt never visited Abbey Leix but delegated tbe construction to local Irisb builders. The foundation stone (at the n011h east corner of the house) is dated 1773 and tbe sbell was finished by 1778. Marle Tidderman supervised the work on site, and tbe stone was supplied by lVilliam Colles of Co. Kilkenny.

A collection o f curiosities from the basement and attic.

It seems that the interiors with their fine Wyatt decora­ tion including ornamental stucco ceilings and marble chimneypieces in the drawingroom and diningroom date from the 1780’s. The diningroom is the best room in the house and has grisaille paintings in the manner of de Gree. (This room was carefully redecorated after a fire in 1959 and the contractors at that date signed their names on top of one o f the doorcases which can be read by looking through a mirror on a long handle.) Lord Knapton was created Viscount de Vesci and died in 1804. His son, the 2nd Viscount, refurnished the main rooms in the Regency style, and his son, in turn, the 3rd Viscount, was responsible for the present external appear­ ance of the house. He called in fames Wyatt’s cousin,

Thomas Henry Wyatt, who had been born in Ireland at Lough-Glinn House, Co. Roscommon; T.H. Wyatt was employed at Abbey Leix through the influence of Lady de Vesci, who was a Herbert from Wilton. She was the youngest daughter of the 11th Earl o f Pembroke and Catherine Woronzow. T.H. Wyatt had built the magnificent Church at Wilton for the Pembrokes and at Abbey Leix he designed a new Church of Ireland church with a tall spire in the town and embellished the house itself, adding the balustrade to the roof the architraves to the window and the formal gardens, said to be inspired by the Villa Aloupka, the Woronzow house at Yalta. The 3rd Viscount died in 1875 and his son the 4th Viscount and wife Evelyn (daughter of the 10th Earl of

Wemyss) then moved into Abbey Leix. In their times the house enjoyed a golden age as an Insh outpost o f the Souls - that group o f cultivated artistocrats that revolved aroiind the Charteris, Wyndham, Manners and Paget families. Evelyn, Lady de Vesci, like all the Souls, was a great admir­ er o f William Monis and redecorated Abbey Leix with his papers and textiles. The magfiificant bine India pattern Morns paper in the draiving room survives from her time, its colon ring hardly dimmed by a centuty o f Irish light; it makes an unexpected foil to Wyatt's ceiling. lJ)ider the direction o f Ivo, 5th Viscount de Vesci, influe)iced by his Aunt lively)], a successful catpet factory was established in Abbey Leix in 1903. Before amalgamating with the Kildare Caipet Factory in 1911, it supplied carpets to leading decor'ating firm s like Waring & Gillow, Watts & Cowtan, to private houses like Longleat, Jladdo, Balcarres and Starnvay, and to great ocean liners including the Titanic. Most of the carpets still at Abbey Leix were made in the factory’ which won medals at the Irish International ILxhibition in Dublin in 1907, Frxinco-British exhibition in Paris in 1908 and the Imperial International Exhibition in London in 1909.

dens, and these were very' much enhanced by the pr-esent Lord de Vesci’s mother-, Susan, who ivas herself the daugh­ ter o f Arrrw, Lady Rosse (nee Messell, a legendary gardener] at Birr' in Irvland and Nymans in Sussex) and the sister o f Lord Snowdon. Lady de Vesci inherited the artistic tastes o f her family, arranging the r'ooms at Abbey Leix with gr'eat flair-, and r'e-planting the garrlens which werv regulariy open to the public. The Gar'dens ar'e r'enowned fo r their beauty, especially in the bluebell season when swathes of azure beneath the ancient oaks vie with the William Morris drxuving room wctllpaper in brilliance o f tone. Though the house, demesne, and town ( f Abbey Leix are runv a synthesis o f 18th, 19th and 20th Century develop­ ments, the place itself is o f gr'eat antiquity. The medieval monks who gave their name ar-e still r-ecor'ded in the M onk’s Bridge over the Kiver Nore and the ruins o f the old churxh, ivhile in the garxlen is the tomb o f Malachias O'Morv, Prince of Leix, who died in I486. In many ways Abbey Leix is the embodiment o f Irish history with its shades o f medieval monks and princes, ancient woodlaruls, and the elegant achievements o f Irish Geor-gian civilization.

CARPETS & RUGS Included in the following Section are several examples o f Carpets made in Abbey Leix. (See Introduction). NOTE ON THE ABBEY LEIX CARPET FACTORY Originally founded by Lord Ashbrook in a neighbouring property in 1902 but did not flourish. The factory was acquired by the de Vesci’s in 1903 and moved to Abbey Leix and given up-to-date plant. The output of the factory was for the most part Turkey patterns, deep pile and of good quality. It supplied Carpets to Abbey Leix itself, to Earl of Aberdeen, Lady Wemyss, Lady Balcarres, Marquis of Bath, Lady Duncannon, Lady Jellico, L.H. Buckmaster, Lady Clanwilliam, the Astors, Spencers and Ogilvies (i.e., English, Irish and Scottish houses), to the White Star Line, for ships including the Olympic and Titanic. For the C oronation o f George V in 1910. To Department Stores including Harrods, Army & Navy, and Marshall Field in Chicago. To Decorating Firms like Waring & Gillow, Watts and Cowtan. A good proportion of the output was exported to America and the Empire. Medals were won for quality work in 1907, 1908, & 1909, at various Trade Exhibitions.
