Robert Ellis BAILIE[6]

[1] For more background See: 1895 November 23rd - John DICKIE’s disposition. This is a case that had deep roots and I still do not understand the half of it.

[2] John Bailie COULTER. John Bailie COULTER (1848-aft 1911) unmarried farmer. Son of the Samuel COULTER (murdered 1851) of Mounthill & Shortstone, Co. Louth and Mary BAILIE.  NOTE: In later years, both John Bailie COULTER and his brother Samuel COULTER (both of them bachelors) supported both the Land League as well as the work of Parnell. They gave land on which a hut was built for the purpose of housing evicted families, on the Forkhill side of their house. It is still known as the “Hut Hill”. SOURCE: Agrarian Disturbances around Crossmaglen. 1835-1855. Part VI. Kevin McMahon & Rory Kieran. Published in Seanchas Ardmhacha: Journal of the Armagh Diocesan Historical Society. Vol. 12 No. 2. 1987. This is an excellent article about what is known about the cause and the court cases and the reaction to the murder of Samuel COULTER in 1851.

[3] Henry O’CONNELL NOTE: I have nothing to add at the moment. Would love to learn more.

[4] James JOHNSTON NOTE: I have nothing to add at the moment. Would love to learn more.

[5] Hugh CALLAN NOTE: I have nothing to add at the moment. Would love to learn more.

[6] Robert Ellis BAILIE, Crown Solicitor, Castleblayney. There are other Robert Ellis BAILIEs – but he fits the right time frame and occupation.
