From some old family letters dated around 1930, I understand that the Marchioness of Conyingham lived at Amat Lodge, at least for part of the year. One of my ancestors worked as a servant for the Marchioness. Does anybody have any more details about the connection between the Marchioness and Amat?

From the book A Chieftain's home in the North of Scotland ( http://www.amatsalmon.com/history.htm )

Amat was purchased in 1924 by Major Gustavus Thompson, a London solicitor whose daughter was marrying John Victor Albert Blosse Conygham, "commonly called Lord John Conygham of Slane Castle, County Meath, Eire, a second Lieutenant in the Royal Navy" Amat was apparently the dowry. When Amat was sold in 1945 the seller was "The Most Honourable Antionette Winifred, Marchioness Conygham"
