None of the many fine houses scattered throughout the Ulster countryside presents such a sense of history as Springhill, near Moneymore, County Londonderry.
It has been home to ten generations of the Lenox-Conyngham family for more than three hundred years.
This re-issued publication traces the development and indeed the survival of the family through four turbulent centuries. Their absorbing story is richly documented from the family's own private papers. The fascinating account is narrated by the last mistress of the house, Mina, whose colourful personality provides us not only with a history of Springhill but also with an entertaining and enlightening glimpse of the country gentry class and their loyalties in yet another period of turmoil, early twentieth-century Ulster.
