Methodist Minister, Rev. Adam Averill, 1799, on possible Scottish Origin, of West Cork, Swanton family and reputed Scottish Plantation, Castlehaven/Skibbereen c 1690s, Andersons, Hamiltons.

It is interesting that the West Cork Somervilles, descend from a Rev. Somerville who fled to Ireland from persecution in Scotland c 1690 and may coincide if there was such a Plantation.

Re the names Hamilton may be Scottish or a corruption of an old Gaelic name.

The Swantons have a tradition of industry, hard work and dissent which some would say are Scottish virtues.

There were calls around this time for a minimum property qualification for Magistrates to avoid the type of temptation alleged.   From the early 1820s Petty Session Courts began spontaneously to appear in Cork. They were given a statutory basis later in the decade and supplemented by paid Stipendiary Magistrates who sat with local Magistrates

1843, Frequency of Petty Session Courts at Carrigboy (Durrus) , Held Every Three Weeks, West Cork, Missed due to Wet Days, Magistrates in Cork, too near Christmas only 5 Sitting Days Missed in 1842.

The local Magistrates were members of the Evanson family, the O’Donovans of O’Donovan’s Cove, The Fort, three brothers and from surrounding areas.  It is unclear if the Resident Magistrates were sitting at this time.

 

The petty Session Court was held on the first floor of the Courthouse from after 1850 when the village was rebuilt by the Bandon estate.  Some years later due to the hue crown attending court the floor collapsey.  Although there weee injuries no fatalities.

“Effects of peace”; ten figures in two rows soliloquiz on the blessings of peace. The last, a foppish young officer, alludes to the expeditions of Bantry Bay and Fishguard, in neither of which were troops in action. The intention appears to be to show the harmful effects of peace.

Burchills Tavern suggests a link to the west by name.  Many of the name are in Crookhaven.

At this period the road improvements to the west had started to kick in.  Further roads to Crookhaven and further west on the Beara Peninsula would be another 20 years.  Indeed work still need to be done
