1781 March 2 Belfast Newsletter.


To be sold by Auction,

at the New Inn in Newtown-Hamilton, on Saturday, 17 March inst. the Interest in a Lease held by Andrew Oliver[1], under Dean Hamilton; out of which there is a well featured profit Rent of about ninety pounds per annum: the premises are situated in and adjoining the town of Newtown-Hamilton in the County of Armagh, and consist of houses, lands, and tenements for building ground, on which there are a number of good houses already erected, and agreeably circumstanced with plenty of bog; the Tenure lives renewable for ever, with two guineas fine at the fall of a life. The premises comprise a principal part of the town, which is thriving remarkably, and has a good weekly market, the lands immediately joining same, so as in all probability they may in some time be mostly let for building. There are all ready twelve freeholds on the premises, which will admit of many more, (a circumstance rarely to be met with in so small a property). The purchaser to commence first of May next, and to deposit one fourth of the purchase money at the time of sale.

N.B. The above will be sold either subject to a Jointure of 30l per annum, which is supposed to affect the same or entire, in case it shall appear by an opinion satisfactory to the purchaser, that it can be effectually released from said Jointure, the title may be seen, and all necessary formation of change by applying to said Oliver on the premises, any time previous to the day of sale.

[1] Andrew OLIVER (abt 1748-1790) of Newtownhamilton. He was probably a son of John OLIVER of Tullymore (d1772). He was a distiller and husband of Elinor and they had many children whose names I do not yet have.
