Abstract:
Looks at the proprietorial expansion and increasing political influence of baronial, knightly, and new `upwardly mobile' families in Co Meath during the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries, concentrating on the fortunes of three families (the Barnewalls, Plunketts and Prestons) that came to prominence as a result of their involvement in the legal profession during this period. Points out that the landed aristocracy of the county, especially the newcomers, articulated their status by building tower houses as residences for display rather than defence, while their construction of parish churches was both an expression of lordship in their society as well as a means to commemorating their achievements.
