From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Sir Edward Blayney, also Blainey or Blaney (1570-1629?) was a Welsh soldier in Ireland. He became Baron Blayney of Monaghan in the Peerage of Ireland.[1]

After Lord Mountjoy occupied Moyry Pass in 1600 dismantling the Irish earthworks there, he marched to Mountnorris (halfway between Newry and Armagh) where he built an earthwork fort and left a garrison of 400 men under the command of Blayney, then a captain.

He married Anne, a daughter of Adam Loftus, as her third husband.[2]
