Families covered: Lidwill of Cormackstown, Lidwill of Dromard, Lidwill of Shannaghmore

BLG1879 reports that "The family of Lidwell, formerly Lydyl, co. Durham, can be traced for many generations in the cos. of Carlow and Tipperary." It identifies the arms of the family as "Arg., fretty gu., on a chief of the second, three leopards' faces or". That suggests a connection with the Liddells of Ravensworth.
