When the first Lord Mount Temple died the Estate was inherited by his nephew The Honourable Evelyn Ashley, son of the 7th Earl of Shaftesbury (the great Victorian philanthropist), who was succeeded by his son Colnel Wilfrid Ashley, M. P., who later became the second Lord Mount Temple, and was the father of Edwina Ashley. In 1922 she married Lieutenant Lord Louis Mountbatten, Royal Navy, who after the Second World War was created Earl Mountbatten of Burma.
Up to the time of the Irish Rebellion, Classiebawn Castle was used extensively by the owners as a shooting lodge in winter, and for fishing and holidays in the summer. The shooting rights are still owned by Lord Mountbatten, the boundaries being shown in the large scale map at the Castle.
