5 Sep 1918 Resolution expressing willingness to handing over workhouse buildings to the military authorities, subject to reimbursement. It was also resolved to seek to acquire the use of Cametringane House as a temporary infirmary and fever hospital. A committee to deal with the military and make hospital arrangements was also created. [Soldiers occupied the body of the workhouse, but inmates were transferred to the hospital building, not to Cametringane. See 6 Feb 1919, where the LGB express their understanding that Cametringane was taken by the board ‘as a temporary measure to cope with the influenza epidemic’. It is pointed out in response that the board never took possession of the house, and it is ordered that the keys be handed over to the garrison commander, Bere Island].
15 May 1919 Resolution asking the LGB to consider the board’s claim for payment from the military up to 31 March last, noting ‘as there seems to be no likelihood of the military surrendering the workhouse premises, we cannot go on indefinitely paying money on their behalf’. 12 Jun 1919 Letter from the medical officer, Castletown Dispensary District, requesting two days leave to go to Bandon ‘to examine the members of the R.I.C. alleged to have been injured near Eyries’.

Resolution asking whether the military ‘can now surrender the portion of the workhouse used formerly as a hospital, as our present hospital accommodation is very limited and primitive. Now that the war is over we see no reason for the military requiring the entire house’. Extracts from LGB medical inspector’s report regarding

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.
