For three hundred years the estate has belonged to the Roseberys who now live at Dalmeny House, built by the fourth Earl in 1815. Barnbougle, the original house just a quarter of a mile away, came into the family's possession in the 1660s when Sir Archibald Primrose bought it for his son who was created First Earl of Rosebery in 1703.

    My husband is a direct decent from the Mowbray family and his second name is Mowbray. His mother was a niece of the Stephenson family of Barnbougle property in Tasmania, and her Uncle was Horotia Jones who built the House of kerosene tins in Victoria mountains. She was his last living decendant. We will be visiting Scotland during May 2008, and hope to see a little of my husbands heritage.
