 Andrew Coulter Bradford JACKSON (1846-1929 ). He was the third son of Eliza OLIVER & David JACKSON and brother of Sir Thomas JACKSON.
 James Birch GILLMER aka GILMORE (1808-1877), son of Eliezer Birch GILMORE & Rachel BIRCH. . Not all the Trustees appointed to deal with Andrew Coulter BRADFORD’s will had wanted to follow through with their duties and the upshot was that J.B. Gillmer was left with sole discretion SEE: 1847 March 26.He then decided on his own to let Bradford’s niece Mary Jane Oliver and sister Margaret Bradford continue to live on the property rather than selling everything off. This meant that those who had inherited annuities (hence Barbara Donaldson) were getting short shrift. The advantage also went to his niece Sally McCullogh wife of Thomas McCullogh of Dunraymond since she still received the bequeathed interest on a bond of £1,100 owed by her husband even though the annuities bequeathed to others were being left unpaid. It was even more galling that the value of the assets were quite probably diminishing due to mismanagement.
 SEE also: 176 Samuel BRADFORD agreement. At this time, the known trustee was: Thomas McCULLAGH of Derryvalley (1793-1877). He married his cousin, Sarah McCULLAGH (1816-1857) and is mentioned in a range of family financial dealings involving the JACKSONs. The initial trustees aka "the worthies" were: Thomas McCULLAGH (circa 1793-1877)of Dunraymond - son of Thomas McCULLAGH & Jane REED. He married Sarah McCULLAGH (1816-1857), daughter of Thomas McCULLAGH & Mary BRADFORD; James Birch GILLMER (aforementioned) and William CHARLETON (1798-1875) of Phillipstown, son of William CHARLTON & Dorothea DONALDSON..
 Samuel BRADFORD (1846-1915). This is the Samuel BRADFORD of many financial scandals that are mentioned in several letters by Elizabeth JACKSON to her son, Thomas JACKSON. He was probably born at Carnbeg, certainly owned leases there later in life, and died at Janeville, Dunleer, Co. Louth. He married Sarah Louisa Wilson on April 29th, 1885 at Garvary Church of Ireland, Parish of Enniskillen, Co. Fermanagh. They had two known children" Margart & Florence Louisa (1889-1952).
 January 15, 1891 would have been the date that the case was tried.

 Cavananore, a townland in Co. Louth, Parish of Creggan near Dundalk. Home of many BRADFORD & MCCULLAGH family members.
 Note: The DICKIE family names shows up several times in Jeannie Moorhead’s Birthday Book. This could be Alexander DICKIE (1831-1887) husband of Anna Maria McCULLAGH, or their son, Alfred Alexander DICKIE (1868-19330, both of Rochdale, lawyers. It could also be Thomas Coulter DICKIE a lawyer incolved in a lease of Cavananore with Mary Jane OLIVER (SEE: 1873 Dec 31 lease ) or his father John Thomas DICKIE.
 From the OED “Conacre. Also cornacre. In Irish land systems; the letting by a tenant, for the season, of small portions of land ready ploughed and prepared for a crop. [1869 … ‘Conacreing’ … is the subletting at enormous rents, of their ground by small tenants to their still smaller brethren.]
