      Ref:Villiers-Stuart Papers held in PRONI Although the descent has been unbroken, it has on three occasions during the period 1664-1824 been through the female line. As a result, the family name has rung the already-listed changes from Fitzgerald, to Fitzgerald Villiers, to Mason Villiers, to Villiers-Stuart, and the family has held a succession of titles, each extinct or dormant in their turn - a viscountcy of Decies, viscountcies and earldoms of Grandison, and a barony of Stuart de Decies (the dormancy of the last having had nothing to do with female inheritance). The marriage in 1677 of Katherine Fitzgerald, owner of the Dromana estate, to the Hon. Edward Villiers, son and heir of the 4th Viscount Grandison; the marriage in 1739 of Lady Elizabeth (Fitzgerald) Villiers, who succeeded to the estate in 1766, to Aland Mason of Waterford; and the marriage in 1802 of Lady Gertrude Amelia (Mason) Villiers, its then owner, to Lord Henry Stuart, fifth son of the 1st Marquess of Bute, as a result of which, their issue assumed the name Villiers-Stuart.
