The residence of the Chief Secretary of the British government and Bailiff of the Phoenix Park, Dublin, completed by Col. John Blaquiere, in 1776, remained so until 1922 when Sir Homer Greenwood, the last holder left office. Among the prominent Chief Secretaries who had occupied this residence were Sir Arthur Wellesley, later to become the Duke of Wellington, Sir Robert Peel and Lord Castlereagh. When the Duke of Marlborough was appointed Viceroy in 1878, Lord Randolph Churchill joined him as private secretary. After Ireland gained its independence, it became the U.S. Ambassador's Residence.
