In 1837 a Parliamentary Commission took evidence on the operation of Manor Courts.  It heard evidence from John Jagoe.  He was one of the main witnesses.  He was from Bantry a Fish Merchant, had sat on a Fisheries Commission had engaged in correspondence with Dublin Castle on fisheries and non-denominational education.  His mother was Young of the Bantry Fishing family who probably held the property, a former mill, now the Maritime Hotel on lease from the Bantry Estate.

1825 Mortgage on Bantry (Lord Bantry/White) Estate and Hedges Eyre Macroom, of £50,000 (€63,500) 2019 Equivalent 2019 c €60 million, Tenant Listing, some 18th Century in General Bantry/Whiddy area.


When advancing mortgages bakers insisted on estate maps adn a tenant listing.

The Bantry estate apart from the prudent stewardship of Richard White mid to late 18th century hovered on the brink of insolvency for most of the 19th century.  This is despite huge infusion of O’Brien (Lord Thomond) and Guinness cash on fortuitous marriages.  The maximum rental was £10,000 which included at it height £2,500 royalties from the Allihies Copper Mines through the Hedge Eyre Connection. Towards the end of the 19th century the Estate was in effect beneficially owned by the Somers Payne family who as agents kept advancing mortgages.

 

This mortgage and its default was to precipitate a proposed receivership in the 1830s for which a tenant listing was prepared.

 

The Whites of Bantry invented a spurious Genealogy.  The late Paddy O’Keeffe, Bantry Businessman (G.W.Biggs/Supervalu) did and paid for a lot of work and was satisfied that they r of strong mid 17th century farming stock in Co. Limerick.

A large number of the West Cork landlord from the 1790s were almost indigent.  The real holders of wealth were those under the radar Catholic and Protestant, merchants, victuallers, substantial farmers and Grand Jury  road contractors who time and time again advance money as rent charges.

 

A similar process was at work at the more substantial Bandon Estate with a rental of £30000.  Their agent the Wheeler Dohertys by advancing loans ended up owning the beneficial interest at the time of the Land Acts c 1900.

See:  Deeds, Rent Charges, Durrus, Bantry, from early 18th Century.

At least some of the money was spine assembling the collection at Bantry House and building the gardens.

 

The multiplier is arrived at by using a teachers pay.  Just after 1825 the National Schools came into existence,  many former hedge school masters were offered positions at a basic salary of £28 per annum. A National Teacher starting pay in Ireland is now (2019) around €34,500 rising with allowances, a factor of 1,785.

 

Master Madden referred to here was probably a grandson of the man who received the job offer.  The family still have the letter:

Some of the records of the Chief Secretary’s Office in Dublin Castle for some years have been digitised and are freely accessible online:

http://www.csorp.nationalarchives.ie/index.html

Professor Francis J Crowley’s bequest

  • The project was named after the late Professor Francis J Crowley, whose bequest funded the project.
  • Professor Crowley, was born in New Haven, Connecticut, to Irish parents. Having received his education at Yale and Princeton universities, he became professor of French at the University of California, Los Angeles.
  • In his will he bequeathed most of his estate to the Republic of Ireland to be used for the preservation of records of the history of the Irish people.

Aims of project

  • The Crowley Project aims
    • to catalogue the Chief Secretary’s Office Registered Papers (CSORP) from 1818 to 1852 to international archival descriptive standards in order to facilitate public access
    • to preserve the papers in order to maintain their physical condition
  • The papers contain an estimated 230,000 items or ‘files’ in 815 boxes.
  • The papers were formerly in a state of disarray having being loosely filed into bundles in boxes. Once processed the papers are physically re-ordered into acid-free archival folders and housed within archival boxes.
  • Contract archivists, working at the National Archives, Ireland commenced this project in 2008. The project also employed a dedicated conservator.

The parts of the 1880s adn 1890s are like somethin from the Stasi failed in East Germany, nothing is too small to document.  The theft of a goat, burning of a hay rick a seditious sermon preached.  Among these indexes are the reference to rabies unfortunately there paper share not available they may have been mis filed or lost.

This information was presumably collected by the RIC of the Resident Magistrate and kept centrally in Dublin Castle.

Cork Magistrates who got Statutes 1823.

 

Cork Magistrates:

 

Cork Magistrates, 10th June 2019.

 

Most of the magistrates were Protestant Landlords or Church of Ireland Clergymen. Until Disestablishment 1870 this was the Irish State Church and apart from religion performed quite a number of civil functions administered by the Minister, Select Vestry and Churchwardens.

 

From around this time on more Catholics were appointed Magistrates some had been appointed since the 1790s. This was supplemented by (RMs) Resident Magistrate’s to remedy a widely believed bias among the Magistrates.  By the early 20th century probably most of the appointment wee those who were Catholic and Nationalist due to the influence the Irish Parliamentary Party on various British Governments.
