Mr Ross Lloyd was a Descendant of the Original Owners and lived in the Castle as a Child
Though descendant’s from the original owners of Lisheen Castle, the Lloyd family, have since spread out across the world, the Everard family have received visits from members of the family from the USA, Canada, Australia and South Africa. The visit of Mr. Ross Lloyd from Durban, South Africa in 2009, not only fulfilled his life long ambition to return to the land of his fore bearers but also reinforced the special nature of Lisheen Castle to the Everard family.
Mr. Ross Lloyd was 90 years of age on his visit to Lisheen Castle, but remembered living there as a young boy. He was able to help the Everard family by recounting stories of castle life almost a century ago and pointing out small but important and often overlooked tell tales of the Lloyd family’s life in Lisheen Castle. While you take a walk around the exterior of the castle, can you spot the initials RL carved into a corner stone on the front of the building. Mr. Lloyd revealed that this was carved over 100 years ago by his father. Mr. Ross Lloyd fulfilled his lifelong ambition of a visit to the restored Lisheen Castle. The Everard family were so touched by his kind nature and delight at the beautiful restoration of his family home, that they chose to honour him by naming his childhood bedroom in his memory.
