The Marquess of Anglesey?s estate in Ireland derived from the lordships of Newry and Mourne in Cos Down and Louth which were granted to Sir Nicholas Bagenal in 1552. It descended to his great-grandson, another Nicholas, who named two cousins, George Needham and Edward Bayly, as his co-heirs. After Nicholas Bagenal's death in 1712, Bayly took over the running of the estates (Needham being then in Jamaica). In 1715 they were divided: the Bagenal property in Wales (Plas Newydd and the estate on Anglesey, etc), the Cooley and Omeath estates, Co. Louth, four townlands in the Newry area of Co. Down and property in the town of Galway, all went to Bayly; while the main part of the Newry estate and the Kilkeel estate, Co. Down (i.e. the lion's share of the Irish property), went to Needham.
Created 1st Baronet Bayly, of Placenewyd, co. Anglesey and Mount Bagenall, co. Louth [Ireland] on 4 July 1730.
Sir Edward and Sir Nicholas Bayly, appear (especially Sir Edward) to have spent a substantial part of their time in Ireland.
If the date given here is correct, the death date I have is wrong:
?There appears to have been an Irish baronet named Bayly, of whom I can find no note in the baronet-
ages, viz., Sir Edward Bayly, of Tinny Park, co. Wicklow, Bart. Will dated Oct. 10, 1741; had a
wife Dorothy, and children Edward, Lambert, Gharlep, Dorothy, Arabella, and Anne-Lucinda.?
