1858 March 13

Deed: 1858 ?? 297

 

The deed preceding Deed 1858 11 298 –1858 ?? 297 is a related deed and on the same day but I only have notes from the last part of it (I will keep looking for the rest of it - but sometimes haste makes waste!). I have not footnoted the names in the first deed as they are the same names as in the deed which follows it on this page.

A Thomas COULTER of Skyhill was a registered freeholder value £50 in Killeen.

[8] COULTER-SEAVER SEE:1843 May 8

[9] Anna Maria SEAVER It is possible that she was a second wife of Johnathon SEAVER (liked to him in another deed) as I have a Nicholina POCKBRICK as the wife of the most likely Joseph SEAVER. NOTE: My SEAVER family tree is a definite muddle.

[11] Hannah LUNDY (1822-1889) of Carrickmacross. Hannah wife of John Coulter, Wellington Place, died 23rd Feby 1889 Aged 67 years SOURCE: http://www.jbhall.freeservers.com/st__nicholas_dundalk.htm

[12] Launcelot COULTER (1813-1873).  My guess is that he was a brother of John COULTER since John COULTER seemingly named a son after him.

[13] Henry CRANSTON probably of of Lisgar. (SOURCE: Deed dated February 17, 1852). I do not know anything of him – except that a Thomas CRANSTON was at Lisgar at the time of Griffiths Valuation and a Henry CRANSTON was at named in connection with various townland in Bailieborough Parish at that time. I suspect that Hanna LUNDY may have been a CRANSTON.
