Balinclough Head

Balinclough Head was an early designation for the promontory overlooking Port Royal Sound which became generally known as Dolphin Head. The name was apparently for the Irish residence of Landgrave John Bayley of Balinclough although it has been proved conclusively that this property was never part of Bailey’s Barony.
