In 1761, Major-General Robert Clive (1725-1774) gave orders for his estate in County Clare, centred on the townland of Ballykilty near the village of Quin, to be renamed Plassey: 'the name of the place where we gained our great victory in India to which I owe all my good fortune'. The victory was the Battle of Plassey in June 1757. In 1762, he was ennobled as The 1st Baron Clive, of Plassey in the County of Clare, in the Peerage of Ireland. In 1764, Lord Clive was appointed a Knight Companion of the Order of the Bath (K.B.). Clive had bought this country estate in County Clare around 1760 from a Dublin banker called Henry Mitchell.
