Dufferin Arms[edit]

The pub's name is v similar to the Welsh name or word "Dyffryn" (pro: Duffrin or similar). Is there a Welsh connection: who were the Dufferins? Pub names like this often refer to local families. Folks at 137 08:47, 29 October 2006 (UTC)

The Dufferins were a family from Cornwall. They were headed by William George Dufferin, who was later convicted of bestiality and hung from the gatehouse leading into Killyleagh castle. He was incidentally the last man to be hung in Killyleagh, and he was well hung at that! (unsigned)
