Description: Belgard Castle 18.2.39: Belgard Castle is a three storey eighteenth century house attached to a medieval tower. The earliest reference was made in the fifteenth century when the Talbots of Belgard resided there. Robert Talbot, son and heir of John Talbot of Feltrim near Malahide was the head of the family. While England fell into civil war, unleashing the War of the Three Kingdoms with Charles I overthrown and executed, John Talbot sided with the Confederation of Kilkenny. After exile with the court of Charles II and service in Flanders, John Talbot was restored to estates confiscated by the Cromwellian Commonwealth. Colonel John Talbot took the side of James II and only avoided a second confiscation through specific reference in the articles of the Treaty of Limerick. He was the last of the Talbots of Belgard and when he died in 1697, it passed to the Dillon, Trant, Cruise, Kennedy and Lawrence families.
