Rudds of Clone

The Rudd family have a long connection to Clone dating all the way back to 1593 when an Anthony Rudd was granted leases in the townland. In 1740 the family built Clone house, which is located opposite Clone Church. They were very powerful and influencial landowners during their time until their estate was purchased by the Lett family in the early 1900's and today there are none of the family in the region of Ferns. The difference in wealth and social standing the family held to others is reflected in their final resting place, being the only enclosed grave. It is also the only boxed tomb within the graveyard, another attempt to distinguish themselfs from others, even after death.
