Post 1823 Letter from William Hull, Lemcon, Skibbereen, County Cork, to Henry Goulburn, Chief Secretary, Dublin Castle, referring to his former letter, emphasising the need to provide a simpler and less expensive means for the lower classes to recover small debts owed to them. Encloses, in support of his claim, a document entitled ‘ “a Manor Court Decree” taken by Richard Connell against Edward Butler, both of Kealfada, County Cork, demonstrating that the legal costs far outstrip the amount of the original debt; decree originally signed by John Sweetnam, seneschal [of Aghadown and Schull Manors], 4 October 1823.

My father always said his “HOSFORDS” were descended from the Huguenots but my researches have not uncovered any evidence so if you can find a Huguenot “HOSFORD” it would be welcome and perhaps give me added impetus on my research .

Speaking as a descendant of an English Leavis/Levis : we’ve always wondered if the English Levis were related to ones found in Ireland (mostly around county Cork). We have started a surname project on familtytreedna to find out if we are related! I would invite any descendant of an Irish Levis/Lavis/etc. to do the Y-DNA test on familytreedna.
