Shared note

Succeeded his father as Seventh Lord in 1706. Queen Anne appointed Cadwallader Blayney Lord Lieutenant and Custos Rotulorum of the County of Monaghan, Governor of the town of Sligo and sworn of her Privy Council.

Apparently prone to "road rage" as described regarding Dr. Jonathan Swift. "In the winter of 1715-16, Swift was returning to Dublin, after a ride to Howth, with two mounted servants. A chaise then began to race up to Swift from behind, without passing him. Swift finally got over to the side of a ditch, and reproached the men in the chaise. One of them was [Lord] Blayney [(1693-1733, the seventh Lord], who supposedly threatened to shoot with his pistol. After the incident, Swift sent a petition to the Irish House of Lords, protesting against Blayney's conduct and asking for protection."

In 1713 the whole rents of the Blayney property failed to exceed £650 pa, and by 1723 he found it necessary to sell a portion of the estates to the Upton family, Lords Templetown, of Templepatrick, county Antrim. This was despite King George I adding an allowance of £182 10s to the annual pension on the Irish Military establishment of £300 in recognition for his zeal and loyalty, and that with "the lowness of his circumstances, he can neither live suitably to his quality nor exert his endeavours so far as he is desirous for our service....[and]...being desirous to support the dignity of our nobility".
