DEED 1839 19 98

1835 Feb 12

 

NOTE: Sometime I start in on a deed and then feel daunted by the legibility challenges. This is one such deed. I am leaving all the [?] bits as they are. At least, most of the salient information can be extracted.

NOTE:  This deed is also worth reading alongside an 1856 judgement which includes the 1834 will of Robert Ellis BAILIE: http://www.thesilverbowl.com/documents/1856Jan22-BAILIE.html as well as alongside the Chancery input of John DICKIE of Casino. SEE: 1895 November 23

 

SNAPSHOT: The two trustees of the will of Robert Ellis BAILIE are the first parties in this deed. Two of the three sons of Robert Ellis BAILIE - John & William - are the second and third parties respectively. Various landlords are mentioned in the fourth part and then Robert BAILIE and Robert DICKIE are parties to the 5th part. This Memorial refers back to an earlier deed of 1811. There was a partition (mutually agreed upon) which involved 172 acres of Annaghvackey aka Roachdale whereby (it seems) Robert Ellis BAILIE got the 87 acres that he had been occupying and that Robert DICKIE got the 87 acres that was already in his possession. As a result of a further partition, of which this is a memorial, it seems that the brothers (sons of Robert Ellis BAILIE), Rev John BAILIE and William BAILIE then partitioned the 87 acres belonging to the estate of Robert Ellis BAILIE and each got about 43 acres on the northern part of Annaghvackey.

 

To the Register appointed by act of Parliament for registering Deeds and Wills and so forth.

·NOTE: PRONI has records under the Armagh Diocesan Registry for Faughart near Ballymascanlon that will likely be worth pursuing.

·"Faughart (J055 125, sheet 36) is a hill (and parish), just (a little over 5 kilometers) north of Dundalk. The hill is close to (and overlooking) the entrance to 'the Gap of the North' which once carried the main road from Leinster into Ulster through the hills of south Armagh. It was a place of immense strategic importance and has a very long and bloody history." (by Kevin Sweeney) Faughart Hill is within a kilometer of the Armagh-Louth border."SOURCE: http://www.magoo.com/hugh/louth.html#brief

·ALSO in the 1854 Griffiths Valuations for Co. Louth, A Rev. John BAILLIE held 161 acres and a house valued at £10 in fee simple at Clonaleenaghan. He also had 70 acres and buildings valued at £7 at Annaghvacky in fee simple.

·BAILLIE will abstracts at PRONI: The Will of the Reverend John Bailie late of Clonaleen County Louth Clerk who died 17 September 1885 at same place was proved at Armagh by John Cornwall Bailie of Jocelyn-street Dundalk County Louth Solicitor one of the Executors.

·Return of Number of Clergymen and Ecclesiastics in Irish Church commuted under Irish Church Act. Rev. John BAILIE of Clonaleenan, had a living as Rector of Faughart earning £138 6 10.

[5] Clonaleenan A townland of 311 acres in the Parish of Creggan, Co. Louth. In the 1854 Griffiths Valuation, about half of Clonaleenan was owned by John & Thomas DICKIE. Rev John BAILIE held 161 acres and buildings valued at £6 0 0 in fee. NOTE: Another John BAILIE of Clonaleenan married a Dorothy SMITH and had eight children and a will in 1773. He could possibly be a grandfather of the aforementioned Robert Ellis BAILLIE.

[6] William BAILIE (-1879) of Tray

·         PRONI Will Abstracts: The Will of William Bailie late of Annaghavackey County Louth Gentleman deceased who died 29 October 1879 at same place was proved at Armagh by the oaths of Henry Victor Bailie Charles Edward Bailie and Alfred Bailie all of Annaghavackey Farmers the Executors. Effects under £50.

·          Return of Murders committed in Ireland since 1842 Volume 35. A William BAILIE was recorded as victim of attempted murder.

[7] Although there is a townland of Tray, Parish of Donaghmoyne, Co. Monaghan, there is also a townland named Tray aka Trea. A townland of 253 acres in the Parish of Creggan, Co. Louth. In Griffiths Valuation of 1854, A William BAILIE leased to a John and a Robert BAILIE house offices and lands on 10 acres with a valuation of £6.0.0. He also leases other acreages and buildings to others for a value of £59 6 0. He himself leases bogs from Reps of John DUNN covering about 10 acres. In the Court case of 1856, the townlands of Annaghavackey and Trea were constantly paired, so my initial assumption was that the Tray of Co. Louth was the one referred to. I could be wrong.

[20] Robert BAILLIE (1808-1895) of Shortstone SOURCE: SOURCE: http://www.faughart.com/inscriptions-page5466.html In memory of Robert Bailie ESQre Shortstone Died April 26th April 1895 Aged 87 years. Deeply and deservedly regretted. Erected by his sorrowing daughters. Also Dora Bailie his loved wife died April 16th 1906. Peace perfect Peace.

[21] Shortstone. There are two townlands: Shortstone East & Shortstone West, both in the Parish of Roche.  I would expect that Shortstone West is the townland in question. In the 1854 Grifffiths Valuation, pretty much the whole townland is owned in fee by a Robert BAYLEY. The only part that is not is a house and small garden held in fee by Mary COULTER, who would have been the widow of Samuel COULTER who was murdered in 1851. Her maiden name was BAILIE and I suspect that she was related to this Robert BAYLEY.

[22] Robert DICKIE (1826-1888) of Clonaleenan. SOURCE: 1895 November 23 Chancery document

[23] Annaghavackey. A townland of 369 acres in the Parish of Creggan, Co. Louth. In the 1854 Griffiths valuation, it seems that most of the townland is owned and leased to people who are related (DICKIE, BAILIE, BRADFORD, OLIVER). The total value was £283 1 0.

[25] Thomas and Samuel BRADFORD. These are probably the brothers Samuel (1803-1881) and Thomas (1800-1872), sons of Samuel BRADFORD and Margaret HENRY. Cavananore and Carnbeg were places where they hung their hats.
