From Irish Pedigrees; or the Origin and Stem of the Irish Nation by John O'Hart
The following have been the noble families in Antrim, in modern times:—The viscounts O'Neill; Chichester, earls of Belfast, and marquises of Donegal; earl MacCartney, baron of Lisanoure; Clotworthy, and Skeffington, earls of Massareene; and Vaughan, barons of Lisburn.
Antrim was formed into a county in the reign of King Edward the Second; and took its name from the chief town, in Irish Aendruim, which is said to signify the "Handsome Hill:" from "Aen" or "Aon," excellent, and "druim," a hill. It is Latinized "Aendromia" and "Antrumnia."
From a sad, comfortless childhood Giles Truelove developed into a reclusive and uncommunicative man whose sole passion was books. For so long they were the only meaning to his existence. But when fate eventually intervened to have the outside world intrude upon his life, he began to discover emotions that he never knew he had.
A story for the genuine booklover, penned by an Irish bookseller under the pseudonym of Ralph St. John Featherstonehaugh.
