Bantry District Inspector area RIC
1819 Old Manor Pound referred to Memorial 528228
Manor Court John Jagoe’s evidence to Parliamentary Enquiry very poor reputation, Senescal a tanner, salary c £60-£80 per annum Probably arising from Lord Bantry as Lord of Manaor he directly appoints Seneschal. Manor of Altham, Beara, Granted by Charles 2 to the then Earl of Anglesea, later controlled by the White/Lord Bantry. Manor of Bantry: Patent 1679. Earl of Bantry. Manor of Donemark: Under Earl of Kenmare Reference is made to the 1679 report of the Lieutenant General of Ireland, the Earl of
Ormond, proposing the creation of two manors in favour of Anglesea. The manors are granted by king’s
chancery roll of 6 February 1679, creating the Manor of Bantry and the manor of Altham. The present deed
confirms that and grants demenses in each manor to Anglesea. Also granted is the power ‘to hold a Court Leet
and View of Frank Pledge.., (a) Court Baron.., (a) Court of Record’, and to appoint bailiffs, with power of
imprisonment [Manorial Court privileges]. Hunting rights, power to erect a tannery for hides, and market days
and fairs (to be held at Ballygobane ‘als Oldtown’) are also granted. Letters patent confirming the foregoing
lodged 15 March 1679. The document is dated 10 April 1679. True copy lodged with Clerk of the Peace of the
County of Cork, 25 July 1787.
The deed sheds light on the extension of English administration in the Beara and Bantry areas in the later 17th
century, and on the power of the Earl of Anglesea in that area. The detail on the extensive privileges and
freedoms granted to Anglesea, including court and other jurisdiction, is of particular interest.

1902 Humphrey Kelleher Process Server, Interpeter In 1902 at Skibbereen quarter sessions, a solicitor called Mr Wolfe asked the judge about the appointment of a process server and interpreter at Bantry. The context was that Humphrey Kelleher, the person who had been fulfilling these two functions, had died, his son was willing to take his place as process server, but as he did not speak Irish, not as interpreter. The son had the support of all the solicitors in Bantry bar one, a Mr Flynn, who favoured a man called Power from Glengariffe (sic) who ‘could speak Irish well’. He argued that there were already two process servers in Bantry but none in Glengariffe where it was difficult to have processes served. http://doras.dcu.ie/17739/1/Irish_Language_Court_Interpreting_1901-1922_Mary_Phelan.pdf 1901, Humphrey KelleherBantry Cork aged 74 Co.

Aside from trying to place Julia in my tree, one problem is figuring which Lisheen Hurley children are theirs. Two Johns: one married Catherine Sullivan, another Honora Callaghan, both connected to the name ‘Constantine’. Other sons, Constantine jnr (b 1836) & Daniel (b 1843), I’m more sure about. A likely daughter Mary married Florence O’Leary of Glandart, had a couple of children who became lawyers, including Patrick J O’Leary (1870) of Bantry.
