[1] William BAILEY of Annaghvackey in the County of Louth Esquire. WILLIAM BAILIE (-1879)

·         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.

[2] Annaghvackey, 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.

[3] Adelaide Louisa de GUERIN of Armagh in the County of Armagh spinster NOTE: De GUERIN is a Huguenot name and settlers of this name were known to have arrived in 1676 (Benjamin Guerin). I have not found an entry for Adelaide Louisa de Guerin, except it is interesting that a Henry de Guerin and his wife Jane LEE are mentioned in a deed of assignment #786 577 532112 on November 11th, 1823 11 28 He was a French Professor, late of the City of Armagh. SOURCE: http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~registryofdeeds/by_name/name030.htm

Also: On the 6th inst [May 1818], at Armagh, Monsieur Henry DE GUERIST(AKA Henry Guerin in the 1820 Armagh Directory), French professor at the College of Armagh,[was married] to Jane Louisa daughter of the late Mr Joseph LEE of the same place. SOURCE: http://members.webone.com.au/~nickred/newspaper/np_abst24.htm   What is also intriguing about this in terms of our family history is also the link of the surname LEE with the surname OLIVER in other documents.

[4] Hugh CAMPBELL of Warrenpoint in the County of Down

[5] Warrenpoint a sea-port, post-town, and district parish, in the barony of UPPER IVEAGH, county of DOWN, and province of ULSTER, 5 miles (S. E. by S.) from Newry, and 55 1/4 (N.) from Dublin, on the road from Newry to Rostrevor; containing 2428 inhabitants. At the time of Samuel Lewis’s Topographical Dictionary of Ireland. For historic description, see: http://www.igp-web.com/down/warrenpoint.htm

[6] James CARLOW of Armagh in the County of Armagh gentleman

[7] Tray NOTE: There is a 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 leased other acreages and buildings to others for a value of £59 6 0. He himself leased bogs from Reps of John DUNN covering about 10 acres. Since the land in this court case keeps referring to Trea along with the townland of Annaghavackey, I had assumed the townlands to be in the same parish & Co. I could be wrong. Curiously, a deed dated Feb 12, 1835 refers to a William BAILLIE of Tray, (Parish of Donaghmoyne), Co. Monaghan.

[8] John STANLEY Junior of Armagh in the County of Armagh gentleman attorney at law

[9] Robert RIDDELL of Armagh aforesaid Notary Public

[10] William BLAIR NOTE: I know nothing more about him.
