'Any information' is a bit too vague. Here's a few bits to start with but if you could explain what you are looking for we might be able to help answer your questions.

Will Extracts- www.proni.gov.uk
"Kidd John Dowker Rowan of the Rectory Castlewellan county Down clerk in Holy orders died 11 March 1941 Probate Belfast 23 October to Donald W. McDonald solicitor and Henry Nathaniel Joly B.D. clerk in Holy orders. Effects 13736 19s. 2d."
"Kidd, Olive Marion of The Rectory Castlewellan county Down widow died 3 February 1964 at Shanslieve Street Newcastle county Down Probate Belfast 23 December to Charles Ernest Basil Dowker Kidd schoolteacher and James Owen Wylie solicitor. Effects 4167 12s."

Mrs. Kidd was from Dublin-

Kidd marriage in Dublin-

Rev. Kidd- http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=mlje&id=I59228

Looks like Violet Owen (age 11) is in a Church of Ireland orphanage in 1911- she probably got the job with the Kidd family through the orphanage when it was time for her to leave-

The Owen family in 1901-

Wonder if this is Violet's father?

A Margaret Lilian Irvine appears on same page as William Edward Owen for a marriage in Dublin South in April June 1907 might explain the Will posted by Aghadowey
