The lands comprised in this Lot are held as follows, viz. :-By agreement, dated 14th January, 1863, and made between John Bradford [5] and Thomas Bradford [6] , the said Thomas Bradford agreed to take that farm of land then occupied by the said John Bradford, "situate in the Townland of Cavananore and County of Louth, with all houses and gardens thereon, together with the portion of the Bog of Annaghavackey [7] then occupied by the said John Bradford, but not to cut any turf on said bog, nor take away any mould therefrom, and to give the said John Bradford 40 in hand, and the yearly rent of 50, for the term of 20 years from 1st November , 1862, and to allow him to occupy the houses and gardens aforesaid free of rent during the said demise, and cut any turf and take away any mould he might require for his own use from the said bog; and in case he gave up the possession of the said houses and gardens at any time before the expiration of said term, the said Thomas Bradford agreed to increase the annual rent by the sum of 1 9s. 7d. The portion of the Bog of Annaghavackey above mentioned has been cut out. Since the expiration of said agreement, the said lands were held under tenancy from year to year. They are now in the occupation of the owner in this matter, pending the sale, under proposal accepted by the Land Judge, dated 9th November, 1898, at the temporarily-abated yearly rent of 35, until the sale in this matter or further order. The occupation under the proposal terminates with the sale.



[1] Samuel BRADFORD (?-?) son of Thomas BRADFORD (1797-1872) & Margaret WALLACE (1811-1885) Conjecture: If Thomas BRADFORD were a brother of Andrew Coulter BRADFORD, then much about the inheritance path of this property would make sense. Unfortunately, the father was already dead in 1790 and Thomas BRADFORD was born in 1797. These links are proving to be elusive. Sharon Oddie Brown, June 16, 2005.
