William Gibson, Goldsmith and philanthropist, was born at Drumbroneth in 1838. Gibson was one of the foremost jewelers of his day and he presented elaborate silver cups to the Royal Ulster Agricultural Society and the new mace for Belfast Corporation. This was first used in 1913 for the tercentenary of the granting of its Charter by James 1. He also presented Queens University with an 18-carat gold mace in 1909 to commemorate its new status as a University. There is quite a lot of information on line about this man.
