THE THIRTY-FIRST REPORT

DEPUTY KEEPER OP THE PUBIIC IlECOfiDS

TO THE RIGHT HONORABLE THE EARL 
CADOGAN, KG., 

LORD LIEUTENANT-GENERAL AND GENERAL GOVERNOR OF IRELAND.

1. At Appendix I. of this Report is printed the emendations Append! 
necessary to be made in the Aldenda to the Index of the Act or 
Grant Books and Original Wills of the Diocese of Dublin 1272- 
1800, being Appendix IV. of ray 26th Report, in consequence of 
the references to Marriage Licences between the periods lf)72-1 685 
and 1713-1741 having been taken, in l-he absence of the original 
registers, from a transcript of a private Index. Since then the 
original books of Marriage Licences have been found, as stated 
in my last Report, and many mistakes were found to exist in the 
transcript. These are now corrected by printing the correct 
entries in cases where mistakes exist in the published Lidex. 

2. I regret to have to report the death of Mr. J. C. Bailey, 
an experienced clerk in this Department, which occurred in [ 
the month of January. The vacancy has been filled by the 
appointment of M r. J. F. Morrissey. 

3. I have been approached by the Historical MSS. Commission, 
with a view to having MSS. committed to them, for the purpose 
of publicacion, deposited temporarily in the Strong Room for 
safe custody during examination and transcription by their 
Inspectors. I am very happy to have been able to meet the 
wishes of the Commission. 

4. Permission was given by the Lords of H.M. Treasury to 
purchase some Records of the late Killaloe Diocesan Registry ; 
also two l(jt3 at the auction of a portion of the library of the i 
late Sir Thomas Phillipps, bart., which had apparently at one 
time formed portion of the Records of the Crown. Schedules 
are given at paragraphs 70 and 71 respectively.

OF THE PUBLIC RECORDS IN IRELAND. 7 

prepared extending to nearly 700 ])ages. The collection as now 
arranged has been formed by bringing tugeuher the letters and 
papei-s of this period from the following collections in the State 
Paper Office already referred to in former reports, viz. : — 

11. {a) "Miscellaneous State Papers" referred to by Old Official 
Index, arranged according to subjects (Piep. IV., p. ■2i', Rep. Y., 
p. 31). This collectior consists mainly of letters to the Irish 
Government from Public departments or Officials in England 
and Ireland; classified in part according to tlie Department from 
which they came, and in part according to the subjects Avitli 
which they deal. They include a c<mtiuuation of the important 
.series already transferred under the title of British Departmental 
(Correspondence. The system of arrangement lias been retained 
and has been supplemented by the ad'lition of the letters and 
papers of this period found among the following : — 

12. [b) "Miscellaneous State Pajjers," arranged chronologically, 
(Report v., p. 31). These papers were arranged in years in 
J 872, but the index then formed being of little practical value, 
all papers before 1790 have been withdrawn from it and amalga- 
mated with this present collection. 

13. (c) ■' Irish Departmental Correspondence." The majoi ity 
of the papers of this small chiss were included in tlie collection 
of Papers earlier than 17UU mentioned in Rep. XXIX., s. 23, and 
Rep. XXX., s. 8. What remained of it has now been included in 
the present series. 

14. (d) Miscellaneous Papers, 1700-1811, found b\^ Sir B. Burke 
(see Rep. XIII., p. 14). Those prior to 17(50 were included in the 
transfer of 1897 ; of the residue, those to 1789 are included in 
the present collection and in the Miscellaneous Papers which are 
to supplement it. 

15. (e) The collection referred to in Sir B. Burke's VIIL, (p 
23), IX. (p. 17), and XV]. (p. 14) Reports. The papers of this 
collection commenced in 1779. Those from this date to 1789, 
which occupied 4 cartons, numbered 020/1.3, to 620,18, have been 
inserted in the collection now formed. These papers are not, as 
seems to be implied, included in the comprehensive index of this 
collection mentioned in Rep. XX., p. 26. 

16. (/) Occasional documents for this period found during the 
general arrangement of the different collections. 

17. Besides these Departmental Letters and Official Papers 
there are a number of Miscellaneous Letters and Papers, llUing 
5 or 6 cartons, for the same period and derived from the same 
sources. The arrangement and cataloguing of these also was 
commenced but could not be completed in 1898. 

18. In addition to the work in arranging and cataloguing these 
Official Letters and Papers, the following classes have been cleaned, 
examined, arranged, made up in brown })aper parcels, and labelled, 
and entered up : — 

Letters and Papers of Commissioners of Customs, 1790-1831. 
Letters and Papers of Commissioners of Excise, ]797-183.'5.

has been observed, are arranged according to Departments and

4th Report, D.K.R., pp. 24-5. As the papers under many of the

Diocese of Ferns for the } ears 1791-180.S, to a like volume of the 
Diocese of Leigblin for the years 1666-l(i91, to a Grant Book of

81. An Index has been made to the Decretal Orders on 
Cj.use Petitions under the Chancery (Ireland) Kegulation Act, 
1850, and to the series of Masters' Orders in Chancery for the 
years 1850-55.

in process of being compared with the original Wills and checked 
with the Will Books, and it is expected that the long-deferred 
work of preparing for press a g<ineral Consolidated Index of 
these Wills can soon be undertaken.

89. The Master of the Rolls cancelled the Retention (^rdcr for 
the parish of Magheragall, and issued a new one on 26th July, 
1898, in consequence of the erection of a vestry room, which 
necessitated the removal and re-erection of the safe. 

90. The Retention Order, which had been granted for the parish 
of Eirke in 1879, was cancelled by Order of the Master of the 
Rolls, dated llth May, 1808, and under the same order two 
Registers were transferred to this Office. This step was taken 
in consequence of the loss of a vestry book, containing entries of 
Baptisms, 17(i2-9, which had been included in the Retention 
Order. 

91. A Register of the parishes of Tracton and Nohoval, 17-t5--

At the time of making the Addenda to the above Index, the

:\[S. Index in the possession of H. Farnham Burke, E; q , Somerset 
Herald. The origiral books were, however, found in 1897 among the 
Rule Books in the Registrar's Office of the Diocese of Duolin, and 
were removed here ; they are as follows : —

APPENDIX 11. 



Extract from Memorandum bv Mr. James Mills on the Departmental 
'Letters and Official Papers, 1760-1789, transferred in 18'JcS. 

\m.,n^ the matters illustrated bv this collection may be noted the 
,„•.,. n-ess 'of the Bills of the Irish Parliament, which may be traced 
iu dif papers under the heads of Parliament, Councd Office, Ireland, 
Irish Office, and Council Office, London, and sometimes under 
Treasury and Home Office. A curious example of the way m which 
Uills of consequence were sometimes pushed through the necessary 
stages is given in the following letter uf the Un.ler Secretary at the 
Irisii Office in London (Irish Office letter, 177G, April 21) : 

"Crown-street [London], April 21, 1776. 

" Sir,— Two davs since, I called on Sr. Stanier Porten to settle the 
manner of transmitting the Bills : and as it was determined to send 
them bv a messenger, l gave notice thereof to the Councd officers and 
as all the persons concern'd in forwarding the business seem to have 
been animated with an uncommon zeal for dispatcli, I think some ot the 
particulars not unw-orthv to come to his Excellency's knowledire. 

" Mr. Frewen, the Deputy Clerk of the Crown, ubtaiu'd the Lord 
High Steward's permission to leave his attendance on him in the Hall,* 
tlmt he might examine the Bills with the transcripts, bub the Attorney- 
General's clerk, who is the constant coadjutor to that officer on these 
occasions, could not possiblv quit his station ; therefore Mr. Dring, ot 
the Council Office, acted ashis deputy, and before the Lords had adjourn d, 
which was about six o'clock, the examination of the Bills was finish d. 

" Sr. Stanier Porten, whose curiositv had carried him to the trial, lett 
the Hall at 2 o'clock, to get the proclamation sign'd by the King, which 
he got done. 

" Mr. Cotterel was obliged to attend on the Foreign Ambassadors m 
the Hall during the whole trial: but has found time to write to you 
what the messenger brings with him, and to give some directions, 
ordering the messenger to attend at 10 o'clock. 

" In the meantime Mr. Dring was to get the Bills sign'd and seal d. 
" Accordingly, he went to Mr. Rigby's, where my Lord President and 
the Attornev-General were to dine, but was refused to be admitted. 
Upon this he went back to the office, wrote a letter in the name of Mr. 
Cotterel to Lord President, requesting him to prevail on the Attorney- 
Geueral to sign the Bills, for which purpose, he said, a clerk was 
waiting with^them. These he carried in his bag. an<l Mr. l^iS'\v s 
servants condescending to give the letter to Lord Prcbidcnt, in 10 
minutes the Attornev-General sign'd them, and dispatch'd him. ^ 1 lien 
he proceeded to the Lord Higli S'teward's, who was to dine at t^ o clock 
and o-etting there a little before, sot the seal affixt : and by halt-past J 
theyNvere made up and delivered to Raworth, the messenger, wJio 
inform'd me that he shouhl not sett ori' that night (all this w^s between 
2 and 10 o'clock vesterdav), as a messenger was come from Dublin, and 
Lord Weymouth" must answer some letters, which he could not do till 
this day. 

^_*Tlie Lord Ch.-iiKell.,r was silting us L.rd Steward at t!u- trial -f the Dvuhess of 
Kingston for bigamy. 



90 APPENDIX TO THIRTY-FIRST IJKPORT OF THE DEPUTY 

" Now I must observe, that so many great and little people, who were 
all concernVl to complete and perfect the V-usiness so necessary at this 
time for t'>e Irish Government, concvirring to act their several parts, at 
a time tliey really might have hee-n excused (if they had not been well 
disposed) almost deseives a clironicle ; though I own it puzzles me in 
some degree that it should have so happen' d. 

" You will be so good as to aciiuaint his Excellency with the [mrport 
hereof, and believe me to be, 

" Dear Sir, 

" Your very faithfull and obedient humble Servant, 

" RoBT, Weston."

The discussion in London between representatives of the Irish 
Government and the London authorities on the laws affecting Irish 
Trade is reported in a number of very full letters written by Sackville 
Hamilton, one of the Irish representatives, to the Chief Secretary (Trade, 
1780, Jan. 1 to April 11). Hamilton m-et with every consideration, 
and speaks with much satisfaction of Loid JTorth's " Honor, Steadiness, 
and Favor for Ireland." (Feb, 2.) 

Under the head " Post Office" are some interesting papers describing 
the mode in which the mails were conveyed through the country. 
Almost to the end of the period covered by this collection, the mails 
were carried by a mounted postboy riding alone. It is no marvel that 
they were frequently robbed. 

Robbers, however, were not the only danger that the postboys had 
to face, as may be seen from the following letter : — 

" Sir, — I am commanded by I>ord Clermont to represent to you, for 
the information of his Excellency the Lord Lieutenant, that on 
Wednesday morning the 1st inst. l)etwf>en I and 2 o'clock, the centinels 
at Newgate stopped the postboy who was currying the mail from this 
office to Kilcullen, nnd one of them struck the horse with his musquet, 
and the other stabbed him in two places in the side with his bayonet, so 
that he is still dangerimsly ill. 

" I am to add that about six in the morning of Monday, the 6th inst. 
while it was full daylif^ht, a centinel at Newgate struck another post- 
boy who was biinging the mail from Kilcullen to this office, and 
wounded him twice in the head with his gun. 

•' Tiie 55th Regiment vrixa upon guard on the Isc inst., and the 47th 
on the Gth. 

" As the safe and speedy conveyance of His Majc^sty's Mails is of the 
utmost consequence to the tnide and corres})ondence of this Kingdom, 
which, together with the persons t-inployed iu the service, have always 
been under the protection of Government, Lord Clermont thinks him- 
self iblig'd to beg His Excellency will be pleas'd to issue his orders 
that the mails may not in future l)e detain'd l)y the soldiers upon guard, 
that the jiostboys may not be molested, that the offenders I have 
mentioned ii:ay be pun'sh'd in an cxonphirv manner, to deter othei-s 
from the like attempts, and that the Postmaster of Kilcullen may have 
satisfaction for the damage done to l\is horse, or the loss of him if he 
dies.

" It would be iiajusiice not to acknowledge that the commanding ofilcei tj 
,jf the -j-jch and 47th Regiments have behaved themselves with gieiiu 
,i\ ilitv and politeness upon this unlucky occasion. They with all dili- 
^'t'lice discovered the otfenders, and ntl'eved to try them by a court niaitial, 
but as Lord Clermont was then in the country, and expected in town in 
:i, few days I thought it right to wait for his lordship's orders. 

" I have the honour to be with great respect, 
" Sir, 

" Your most obedient and most faitliful 
humble servant, 

" John Wilson, Sec. 
" Gen'. Post Office, Dublin, 

"Aug'. 14th, 1770." 

ft was not, however, until IfSo that the merchants of Cork and 
Belfast began to agitate for a ujore secure and convenient mode of con- 
veying the mails. The first effort in this direction is to be found in an 
offer made by three merchants of Cork in the following letter : — 

"Cork, 3rd Sep'., 1785. 

" My Lord and Sir, — As his Majesties Post blasters General of this 
Kingdom we take the liberty of addressing you, humbly to submit to 
your consideration a plan for conveying the mail to and from Dublin 
hither in post carriages, agreeable to the mode now so universally 
adopted thro'out England. We are well aware of the many ditti- 
ciilties we have to encounter in venturing ;ipon so very new and 
hazardous an undertaking, yet so ambitious are we to promote what 
nuist be of such utility to trade and general advantage to the kingdom, 
that, under y' hon"' patronage, we are ready to give ample security 
for establishing regular post carriages and horses, which during the 
six summer months shall take u]) and bring do.wn the mail in 28 
liour.«!, and in winter not exceed 30 hours ; al. owing us at the rate of 
^Ir. Palmer's* original engagement, which we understand to be 3d. per 
English mile down aud Ihd. back, with half a guinea p. week to each 
of the attending guards (should such be deem'd necessary), warranting 
us a contract for twenty-one years or any longer engagement you may 
deem our humble endeavours worthy of. 

" We have the honor to remain with the greatest respect, 
'• My Lord and Sir, 
" Your most hmble, and obedt. scrv",

92 APPF,N*niX TO THlRTY-FIltST REPORT OF TIIH DEPUTY 

This prui)<).sal was fa\rourably received by the Post Oftice authorities 
in Dublin, and it was recomtnended by thtm in a letter from the 
Secretary of 7tli September, 1785. They considered that "very essen- 
tial advantages must result, not only \Py the more speedy conveyance 
of His Majesty's mails, but from the communication which will thereby 
be opened in little more than twenty-four houi-s between Dublin and 
Corke, which, l)y the present mode of travelling, takes up a space of 
tive days." 

Further consideration showed ditnculties which prevented the imme- 
diate carrying out of this improvement. In a letter of 13th December, 
1736, the Secretary writes: — "Upon enquiry into the state of the 
roads throuiihout the Kingdom in general, they appeur'd to be in such 
a situation as to ])rec!ude the p()ssii)i]ity of such an establishment at 
[)resent, nor was it likely that they woulfl be so soon put into sufficient 
repair for that purpose as uught be wish'd. That the moment they were 
so, and that contractors could be found to undertake such a plan, they 
would again call the attention of Government to that very important 
and desireable object." 

In 1788 a more than usually important mail i-obbery brought the 
question again into prominence. 

"Gen. Post Office, Dublin, 

"Thur.sday, Feb. 28th, 1788. 

" Information is further received this morning that the postboy with 
the mail for Dublin was again robbed last night at nine o'clock, 
between Dunleer and Droghe<la, by two men, one a tall, the other a 
short man. The latter of whom tied the postboy's hands behind his 
back with a garter, and took the entire mail away, containing the post- 
bags from the following towns that should liave arrived here this 
morning, vi^^., A.rmagh, Banbridge, Belfast, Castlebellingham, Donagh- 
adee, Dromore, Dundalk, Dungannon, Dunleer, Flurrybridge, Hills- 
boroiigh, Loughbrickland, Lurganbreen, Markethill, Newry, New- 
townards. * * * * " 

This robbery appears to have hastened the action of the authorities, 
and in the following month an advertisement was published for pro- 
jtosals for "carrying the mails in coaches, attended by guards.'' In 
considering the cost of the new arrangements, the Postmasters-General 
observe (letter, 31 May, 1788) — "That as the solicitor's bilk for the 
expence of prosecutions for mail robberies since the establishment of 
this Office amount, upon an average, to £1,000 a year, a saving nearly 
to that amount may be expected to the levenue of this Office if the Mail 
Coach plan shall be established." 

Smugglers plied their calling with nmch success, ]iot with standing the 
Irish Fleet of Kevcmue Cruisers. Several letters point to the little 
port of Ptush, though so near Dul)lin, as one of the most formidable 
homes of tlie snuigglei'. During war, especially the American War, 
the smugglers were frequently found manning and directing the French 
and American privateers, which infested the coast and seriously menaced 
the trade of the country. The following letter, jji'eserved under head 
of Revenue, illustnites how completely the trade was sometimes at 
their mercv : — 



^ 



KEEPER OF THE PUBLIC KECORDS IN IRELAND. 93 

" Custom House, Waterford, 

" 13th August, 1781. 

'• HoNOUiJED SiKS, — I am Sony to acciuaiiit your Honrs. that this 
])urt is now so compleatly block'd up by pi'ivateers that no vessel 
iroiu.i; out, or comiug in, can possiltly escape; one of them, a lugger of 
IG six -pounders, commanded by Dowliug, just now chaced the Hunter 
Ijupress boat into the very harbour; tliis privateer lies at anchor 
trei[uently in the sound between the two Saltees, and slips out 
.(L'o.isionally on seeing any ship. A brig a:id lugger chased several 
vessels yesterday (Sunday) off the Tower, and took one of our coal 
traders (the Iris, Captu. Tedball) and two sloops of little value, one of 
which they ransomed for one hundred guineas, and the other they sutfer'd 
to pass free, but finding the Iris ])ada few packs of bay yarn on board, 
which she took in here, they would not ransom her on any account. 
Another of the privateers, which has committed great depredations on 
this coast, carrys 26 nine and twelve-] )Ouudei-s and 250 men, and has 
(it is repoi-ted by some who were prisoners on board her) ransomers on 
board, to the amount of forty thousand pounds ; she is call'd the Princess 
do Norrice, one McCarthy, commander ; there is also another cutter on 
the coast, call'd the Chardon, of 20 guns. In sluu't, J can assure your 
Hours, with certainty, that scarce a day passes tliat vessels are not taken 
iu view of the people about Dunmore and Tramore, and unless some 
ert't.-ctunl steps shall be taken to ju'event it, there must be an end to all 
trade here, as insurance will not be had for any premium. And what 
makes our situation the more deploreable is that the Nemesis, frigate, 
and V^ijjer, cutter, have been order'd for Cork, whither they sail'd the 
10th inst , to convoy a fleet from thence to Enghmd, so that we have 
now a repetition of every evil to expect from those pirates, who were 
hardy enough to take mauy vessels at the harbour's mouth, at a lime 
Avhen they knew that some of his Majesty's ships of war were at 
anchor within. 

" I am, Avith great re^^pect, Hond. Sirs, 

" Your most obedt. hble. servt., 

" J. Gahan, 

" Survr." 

Gi'eat as was the danger from the privateer pirates, the unlighted 
coast formed a still graver source of disaster. Some interesting 
particulars are included under the head of ''Light Houses," especially 
as to those at Hook, Tuskar, and Howth. So late as 1788 the question 
whether oil lamps might not be an improvement on the open coal tires 
hitherto used, was under discussion ; experiments were gravely made 
and re[i0rted on. 

Among matters of internal interest, the occasional distress caused 
by general or h.cal failures of the crops, at several times occupie<I the 
attention ot (rovernuient. Among the n^eans adopted were encouiaiio- 
nient of coa.stwise convevanee of corn from districts of ple;-ity to 
distressed districts, jjurcha.se of corn to be retaileii at low price to the 
poor, <tc. 

A letter of Lord Temple, when leaving i.fficL'. to his sncccs.sor, Lord 
Xorthington ("Lord Lieutenant," 23 May, 1783), deals very fully 
with the nieans of meeting the then thre.itetie<l dearth. ^Vmong other 
niensiires referred to, lie ad'is that '' the 'aws ot' this Ringdoia do 
n(<t enable Government to slop the distiih-ry, t-lso an immediate relief 
might be afforded against the tiireatened calamity. " 



94 APPENDIX TO TinUTY-FlKST RKPORT OF THE DEPUTY 

The Excise authorities liad already (Revenue, 19 July, ITfiO) cilleil 
attention to the waste of corn from unchecked distilling in time of 
scarcity, aud had urged this an additional reason for increased aid from 
the military for their officers. 

Section 5 of the Act 2 1 & 22 Geo. III. c. 24, which enabled Catholic 
priests to register themselves, has led to the preservation of lists of the 
Catholic clergy of several dioceses. Some of these i-egisters are very 
full of iuterestiug details, including, heside the name aud rank of the 
clergyman, his age, and the date aud place of receiving the different 
orders, and the names of the ordaining bishops. 

Under the head, " Surveys," are some very interesting letters of 
Colonel Vallancey, describing the accident by which he discovered 
Petty's u\aps in the Royal Libi-ary in Paris, and his subsequent 
progress in the transcription of the maps. Two of these letters are 
subjoined : — ■ 

" Mv Lord, — Having by accident turned over the King's Catalogue of 
the Bibliotheque Royal de France, a discovery oilered of n-.uch impor- 
tance to Ireland, On enquiry of Lord Erlsiort, the Secretary of State, 
&c., [ believe your Grace will Ijnd that the Down Survey or the survey 
ot the forfeited estates, made by Sir Wm. Petty, are frequently allowed 
to be evidence in Court, in cases of property. That on this account an 
office called the Survevor General's of Land, was established lor the 
preservation of this survey ; that many years since, a fire in the Castle 
ol Dublin consumed many of tliese surveys ; that the copy in possession 
of Lord Shelborn is imi)ei-fect, and eannot supply this defect. That 
these copies are all laid down on a scale too small for ascertaining the 
just bounds of estates, and were not intended by Sir Wm. Petty for 
that purpose, but only a contraction of the great originals towards 
making a small map of Ireland. 

" That the original on a large scale was shipped for England, iu order 
to be engraved in London, in the reign of Queen Ann ; the ship was 
taken in the ])assage by a French privateer and carried into St. Maloes, 
and many fruitless searches have been made to recover these Surveys. 

" Lord Harcourt made every enquiry jjossible for them in France ; 
Lord Shelborn did the same : the Catalogues of the French Libraries 
were turned to in vain ; no such maps appearing iu the Catalogues under 
the words Cartes or J/.S',S', the Librarians never gave themselves further 
trouble. J have experienced the same both at Oxford and Cambridge. 

"My pursuits this day in the French King's Catalogue were for old 
Copies of the Bible, and consequently turned to the volume entitled 
Theology^ curious to know in what manner the collection was made. 
I perused the Preface, and to my great astonishment at page 50, found 
the enclosed account of the original Survey of Ireland, by Sir Wm. 
Petty, on the large scale, and I suppose complete : if not, probably 
there remain those now deficient in the Surveyor General's Office.

SrE, — I have the honour to actjuaint you that I was dispatched V)y 
Lord Sydney on the 21st ulto., and arrived here on the 2()th, on the 
next day had an audience of the Duke of Dorset, wdio furnished me 
with a letter to Monsr. Le Noire, U'uef Librarian. This gentleman 
was iu the countiy and did not arrive till this day. Monsi-. Le 
Noire has assured me of every means to facilitate the copy of the maj)s ; 
it must be made in the library, he .said we might work from nine in the 
morning to six at evening. This would be sufficient ; but the under 
librarian objects to these hours and dechires he will shut up the library 
each day at twelve. I requested il. Le Noire to [)ermit the books 
to be taken to my lodgings ; he said, the King's orders were positive 
against such an indulgence, but the under librarian whis{)ered it would 
be granted if the D. of Dorset would ask it of the King. In vain I 
solicited for a sight of the maps, on my first arrival. The sub-librarian 
could not grant that favour till M. Le Noire arrived — he had indeed 
shewn them to Baron Power, but I must wait for an order. At length 
he granted me that favour yesterday, for two minutes only. At the 
first cast of ray eye, they appear to be the maps of each barony, with 
tlie Down Survey, only as far as it extended in each barony ; executed 
in a more masterly manner than anything of the kind remaining in Ire- 
land. The title page is finely illuminated, and every part shews great 
care and attention has been paid to this work. 

" It is impossible to form an idea of the time ii will require to make 
tl)is copy : the shortest will be four months fioni this date ; three will 
be sufficient if I am indulged to ttike the books to my lodgings, which 
are within pistol shot of the library, in hopes the proximity might be 
some inducement to this favour ; but, if the under librarian carries his 
point of granting me only three hours in the day to work, it will 
re-juire much longer time than I have specitied. Thus circumstanced 
in the midst of the most ex[)en.sive city of the world, even for common 
necessaries of life, I hope, sir, you will Ije pleased to send me a fuvther 
credit, more than half the sum advanced, being already expended.

96 APPPENDIX TO THIRTY-FIRST EEPORT OF THE DEPUTY 

Perlsaps the latest instance of the wai'like use of a ratli is coutaineci 
in a letter describing a forcible resistauce to the Hherifi' of County of 
Tij)perary ot Oldcastie, seven miles from Ternpieuiore. " The (.larrisou, 
as it was called, was a Danish Fort, tlie form circular, ami planted with 
fir trees that made the place so dark as not to he able to see into it ; the 
banks round it were about eighteen foot high, with a stake hedge 
at top and a deep fosse round this, in an open field on a rising ground." 
So strong was the place that Sir John Garden, the writer of the letter, 
and the Sheriff agreed that it could not be taken without artillery. 

The humane desire to improve the condition of the prisons, which 
was being ui-ged on by Howard, led to int[uiries and much beneficial 
work in Ireland. Towards tlie end of this period Sir Jeremiah 
FitzPatrickj m.d., was appointed Inspector-General of Prisons and 
Hospitals. The following account of the dilficulti<;s he met iu attempt- 
ing to introduce reforms in the Marshalsea, is of iutei*est : — 

" To His Excellency, George iSTuoENT Grexville Temple, Lord 
Lieutenant-General and General Governor of Ireland. 



"The Memorial of Sir Jeremiah FitzPatrick, Inspector-General of 

Prisons, 

" Most Humbly Showeth — 

" That in consequence of the rules proposed for the efiectual regulation 
of the Four Courts Marshalsea, agreeable to your Excellency's will, the 
greatest' disorder and violence has taken place in that piison ; in so 
much, thai. ^lemorialist is in the greatest danger of his life, and finds 
that without your Excellency's protection he cannot with safety visit 
that Marshalsea again, not even to have the works at present under- 
taken finished. 

" By the regulations, the Marshal considers himself injured in point 
of expence. 'The wealthy, who have families lodged with them for 
several years past — and still i-emain, altho' entitled to the two last 
Insolvent Acts — but will not give up their t-ti^r-cts to their just 
creditors ; those vrho have more than one room ; those who keep 
mistresses, and all the whisky drinkers, are disobliged ; so that in 
place of your Memorialist finding friends, after all his exertions for 
prisoners — it was with the greatest difficulty he escaped their rage on 
Fryday morning last — which he effected by sliping thro' the hatches, 
when they least expected it. 

*■' On Satuniay Memorialist received the enclosed card, dated the 21st, 
and on Sunday was cautioned by a Member of Parliament, and other 
gentlemen not to venture there again without the army or some y)ersons 
to protect Memorialist. 

"* On !Momiay Memorialist received the note dated the 23i-d June. 
Your Memorialist, however, was determined not to become troulde- 
some to Government, except it became unavoidable, and conscious that 
he w;is discliiu'ging his duty in fultilling your Excellency's commands, 
he went yesterday to see the works in respect to the Bath and Hospitals, 
S:c., carried into effect ; and prepared himself with pistols, which he 
had in his coat-pockets, with a large coat thrown over his shoulders, 
loosely. ^Memorialist had not Ijeen one minute iu the y;ird, when one 
of the prisoners, bv whom he had formerlv bepn abused, accosted him 
bv savintf the bathing would soon be begun ; alluding in M';morialist's 
0|ii):it)n, to the j)i..;iping. ^MemorialisL went onto give his ilirerlions 
to the men who were at work at the bath, and finding himself followed 
by near one hundred persons, and that a prisoner who personated a 



KEEPER OF THE PUBLIC RECORDS IN IRELAND. 97 

judge in old robes, with a person before him who kept beating an old 
tin vessel (as if a di'um) paraded the yard, and that numbers were 
coming round Memorialist, he began to entertain fears for his safety, 
and was moveing towards an open space to avoid them, and sometimes 
looking towards the upper windows, Irom whence he heard they would 
fire. Memorialist foot struck against some obstacle, on which one of 
the pistols, until then concealed, went otf, and as the muzzle was 
upwards, tired into the air. Memorialist immediately, but with 
difficulty escaped, which he verily believes he could not have done had 
lie not kept another loaded pistol presented whilst he retreated to the door, 

" [Memorialist was particularly abused by three or four persons, who 
seemed the ringleaders, and by a William Alexander English, who 
\('lieniently swore that ^Memorialist was acting othciously, and had no 
right to visit or inspect that Marshalsea ; and that if Memorialist ever 
attempted to enter his apartment for the purpose of carrying the 
))ro[,osed or any , other regulation into execution, that he would kick 
Memorialist downstairs, no matter by whom directed or supported. 

" Your ^lemorialist declares that he is thus prevented from discharging 
the duties of his office, and of forwarding the regulations so humanely 
intended Ijy your Excellency, therefore prays protection. 

"June the 24, 1788." 

The following copy of the draft of a reply to a Treasury letter gives 
an ex]:)lanation of a very confusing use of one; of-the terms employed 
to describe the money of account here. It thro^vs Ijght on a question 
which even yet sometimes causes a difficulty. 

" Dublin Castle, 16th February, 1786. 

'• Dear Sir, — Agreeably to your desire I communicated the enclosed 
petition of Charlotte, Duchess Dowager of Athol, to my Lord Lieutenant, 
and His Grace requests that you will inform Mr. Pitt that the expression 
in His Majesty's grant for the payment of Her Grace's annuity in lawful 
money of' Great Britain does not imply British currency distinguished 
from Irish currency, with a difference of exchange, but means no more 
tlian that the payment of the annuity shall be made in such lawful 
money as is current in Great Britain as well as in Ireland. The ex- 
pression is made use of in similar grants and is common in bonds and 
other legal proceedings here where Irish money only is the considera- 
ticm. 

" Your most faithful and obedient servant, 

"T. 0[rde]. 

" George Rose, Esq." 

I have not touched on the letters of political consequence, yet the 
collection contains many such. These are ranged chiefly under the 
houds of Home Office, Lord Lieutenant, and Treasury. Among these 
are to be found, besides official letters of advice and direction from the 
Government in London, in many cases also the original drafts of the 
replies, which show not only the answer sent but sometimes the manner 
iu which, after repeated changes, the ultimate form of the answer was 
arrived at. The whole collection forms an important addition to the 
now available sources of the history of Ireland iu tho last century.

THE THIRTY-SECOND REPORT 



OF THE 



DEPUTY KEEPER OP THE PUBLIC EECOEDS 
km KEEPER OP THE STATE PAPERS 

IN IRELAND, 



TO THE RIGHT HONOURABLE THE EARL 
CADOGAN, KG., 

LORD LIEUTENANT-GENERAL AND GENERAL GOVERNOR OP IRELA.ND. 
ilAY IT PLEASE TOUR EXCELLENCY. 

I respectfully beg to submit to your Excellency my Report, 
under the direction of the Right Honourable the Master of the 
Rolls, and pursuant to the 24th section of the Public Records 
(Ireland) Act, on the proceedings had during 1899 in connection 
with the Public Records in Ireland. 

1. On the 10th. of June took place the death of John 
J. Digges La Touche, ll.d., the Deputy Keeper of the 
Records. Dr. Digges La Touche had been identified with 
the Record Ofiice from its foundation in 1867. Previously Clerk 
of Pleadings in the former Rolls Office of Chancery, he was 
appointed the first Assistant Deputy Keeper of the Records in 
the new Record Office. On the death of Sir Samuel Ferguson 
in 1886, he succeeded as Deputy Keeper. On the retirement of 
Sir J. Bernard Burke in 1892, he was appointed to the further 
office of Keeper of the State Papers. 

Bringing to this Office in its infancy the knowledge and expe- 
rience stained in the chief of the former Record repositories in 
Ireland, the dut}' devolved on him of directing the archival train- 
ing and organising the clerical work of the new Office staff. 
Tliese duties he pursued with the object of producing work of 
most practical value to inquirers. Such Record publications as 
the Office has hitherto been able to issue through the medium of 
its annual Reports — the Calendar of the " Fiants," that of the 
Cluist Church Muniments, the Indexes to the Dublin Consistorial 
Act Books, and other reference works of less bulk — were planned, 
"■idertaken, and carried out under his direction, and often under 
ius uwn minutely accurate editorship. Besides these published 



THE THIRTY-SECOND REPOHT OF THE DEPUTY KEEPKR 



repertories, he directed the formation of a great number ot 
indexes, now placed in manuscript in the public Search Room, 
which have made available for reference many classes of Records 
formerly quite out of the reach of readers. Besides his archival 
work in the Office, he edited for the Huguenot Society a volume 
of Registers of the French Churches of St. Patrick and St. 
Mary, in Dublin. 

An active officer, firmly maintaining discipline, Dr. Digges 
La Touche was, at the same time, a sterling friend to those 
employed under him. To them, as to the State he zealously 
served, his loss is great. 

2. On June 2nd, a few days before Dr. Digges La Touche's 
decease, occurred the death of Mr. John Overend Overend, the 
Assistant Deputy Keeper of the Records. He had suffered for 
some time from serious illness, which caused his absence during 
most of the preceding winter. On the formation of the Record 
Office, Mr. Overend, then a clerk in the Court of Exchequer, was 
appointed to this Department to bring to its aid his knowledge 
and experience of the Records of the Courts of Common Law ; 
and he has done useful work in connection with them. He was 
promoted to be Assistant Deputy Keeper in 1889, on the death of 
Mr. William M. Hennessy. 

3. Your Excellenc}'' was pleased to appoint me, previously the 
Senior Clerk in the Office, to be Deputy Keeper of the Public 
Records, and also Keeper of the State Papers, in succession to 
Dr. Digges La Touche ; and Mr. Henry FitzPatrick Berry, M.A., 
Barrister-at-Law, also a Senior Clerk in the Office, to be Assistant 
Deputy Keeper. 

4. A further vacancy on the staff had arisen early in the year 
by the transfer of Mr. C. E. Royds to the offices of the Local 
Government Board in London. The three junior vacancies were 
filled only in October by the appointment of Mr. Alexander 
Flint, M.A. (Edinb.), Mr. Thomas Edwin Harvey, B.A. (Royal 
Univ.), and Mr. Samuel Watt, B.A. (Dubl.), successful candidates 
at the Civil Service Class I. Examination held in August. 

5. The facilities offered to the Historical MSS. Commissioners 
(as noted in par. 3, 31st Report) have been availed of by them. 
Several volumes of papers from the collection of the Marquis 
of Ormonde have been deposited here, and examined in the 
office by one of the Commissioners' Inspectors. Dr. La Touche 
had, in 1898, expressed a wish that, in order to deal more 
satisfactorily with the papers left in our charge for the use 
of the Commissioners, someone on the staff of this Office 
should receive a recognised position in connection with them. 
The Commissioners, early in the year, with the approval of the 
Master of the Rolls, and with the consent of the Treasury, 
appointed me one of their Inspectors of Manuscripts. 

6. In February, the sale by auction was announced of the 
great collection of manuscripts, chietiy State Papers, preserved by 
the Earls of Hardwicke. Among them was a very large mass of 
State papers, letters, and letter-books belonging to Philip, third 
earl, as Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, 1801 to 1806. The attention 



OF THE PUBIIC RECORDS IN IRELAND. 7 

of Government was at once called by this Office to the import- 
ance of these papers, and permission was asked to bid for eighty- 
six lots, which appeared to include books and papers of the Irish 
Government, Your Excellency, with the sanction of the Treasury, 
authorised the purchase of these lots, within certain limits. The 
public sale, however, was not carried out, the British Museum 
having secured the entire collection by private contract before 
the day announced for sale. 

7. A further instalment of the MSS. of the late Sir Thomas 
Phillipps was offered for sale in June. Only one lot relating to 
Ireland appeared to be of an official character making it proper 
to be preserved in this Office. This was, with the sanction of the 
Treasury, secured at the sale. It is entitled, " A book of the 
Survey of the county of Dublin, which hath been performed in 
pursuance of a contract made with the Honorable (Joramissioners 
for the assessment of the said county, dated the 20th of Jan., 
and now returned and finished by Thomas Taylor and Edward 
Lucas, May 25, 1G58." 

8. In the fifth Report of the Deputy Keeper of the Records, 
sect. 28, it was noted that the unproved wills preserved at the 
District Registry of Kilkenny had been left in the registry. 
This fact was overlooked in later transfers from that registry 
until noticed during last year. The District Registrar, at my 
request, made a search, which resulted in finding two parcels of 
original wills, chiefly unproved. These have been received, and 
on examination were found to contain 1 58 wills of the Diocese 
of Ossory, 1664 to 1858 ; three wills of the Diocese of Leighlin, 
1808 to 1818 ; one of the Diocese of Ferns, 1771 ; and fifteen un- 
proved wills lodged in Kilkenny District Registry, 1858 to 1864. 
They have been restored to their places in the several collections 
to which they belong, and entered in the proper indexes. 

9. The publications of the Commissioners of Patents have, 
since the erection of this Office, been deposited here as received 
from time to time at the Record and Writ Office. They have 
been regularly arranged here and made accessible. The very small 
use made of them here induced Dr. La Touche to concur in the 
suggestion of the Commissioners to limit the papers sent, to 
those which, under section 100 of the Patents, Designs, and 
Trade Marks Act, 1883, are required to be lodged in the Record 
and Writ Office, with the addition of the Yearly Indexes. The 
sets of "Abridgment Volumes" and the "Illustrated Official 
Journal of Patents" are, therefore, no longer deposited here. 

10. Judges' or Examiners' Notes on Title and Judges' Copies 
of Petitions in the Landed Estates Court, together with some 
volumes of Indexes to Records of that Court, were found to have 
been not included in the transfers made from that office. The 
Land Judge considering them necessary for the business of his 
offices, their retention has been sanctioned by a certificate of the 
Land Judge, under sub-section 4 of section 14 of the Records 
Act, 1867. Considerable public inconvenience having been felt 
from the want of the Indexes, these have, by arrangement with 
the Registrar, been transcribed here and the copies placed for 
public reference in the Search Room. 



THE THIRTY-SECOND REPORT OF THE OEPtJTT KEEPER 



Appendix. 



11. The most numerous and extensive transfers of Records to 
this Office in recent years are those from the Offices of the 
Clerks of the Crown and Peace of the several counties. These 
Records were not named in the Public Records Act, 1867. Those, 
however, of most of the counties of Ireland have been brought 
within its scope by different Orders in Council in 1885 an(f 
subsequent years, under the 5th section of the Act, and thert 
are now but eight counties not so included in our operations. A 
Report on the Records received from these offices has been 
prepared by Mr. Herbert Wood, of this Department, and is 
printed as an Appendix to this Report. 



Transfers. 

12. There have been received in this Office during last year, 
under warrants of the Master of the Rolls, 1,220 volumes and 812

Arrangement and Preservation of Records. 

{jy>. Tlio arrangement of the Equity Exchequer Bills has been 
continued from 1752 to Octobei-, 1764, and the Answers to June, 
1704, comprising 4,747 fasciculi, made up in 789 brown paper 
covered parcels. 

V)i'>. The arrangement of the Intestacy papers from the Principal 
an<l District Registries of the Court of Probate, 1858—1878, has 
been completed. They have been put in separate envelopes, 
occupying 171 zinc boxes. The collection of Unproved Wills 
f(jr same period, and the proved Wills for lb77 have been 
similarly dealt with. They occupy 12 and 41 boxes respec- 
tively. Thirty-four boxes of Wills of several Dioceses have been 
stamped. 

<i7. i,lo6 Bankruptcy files in portfolios have been cleaned and 
stamped; and 1,495 portfolios labelled. 

tj~^. The re-arrangement and consolidation into a single series 
of the Cause Papers from the former offices of the Masters of the 
Court of Chancery — known as Masters' Papers— have advanced 
as f;ir as the end of letter R, making 3,705 bundles of Cause 
Papers, whicti have been made up in 295 parcels. 

<)!). '12 bundles of Christ Church Deeds, 686 bundles of Inven- 
tories, Bonds, &c., of several Dioceses, 102 bundles of Lunacy

Baptisms, Marriages, and Burials in each parish. They had in 
most dioceses been very indifferently kept. All which came to 
this Office have been carefully arranged and made accessible, and ' 
they frequently prove valuable by supplying records of entries of 
which the original books have disappeared, and by explaining 
doubtful or defective entries. The returns, especially those from 
country parishes, are often on small or irregular strips of paper, 
liable to the danger of being mislaid wheji placed in the hands 
of readers. To secure them, it is intended to mount each of the 
small returns on a guard, and to bind those for each parish as a 
separate volume. This work has been commenced, and nineteen 
parishes have been mounted preparatory to binding. 

Indexing and Calendaring. 

72. Indexes have been made to six volumes of Registers of 
Consistory Acts of the Dioceses of Ardfert, Clonfert, Killala, and 
Killidoe. 

7:3. The Inventories of the Prerogative Court, 1668-1858 ; 
Marriage Licence Bonds and Affidavits of the Diocese of Cloyne, 
1801-1866 ; and Administration Bonds of the peculiar of the Dean 
of Lismore and of the Lordship of Newry and Mourne have been 
indexed, and made accessible to the public. 

74. An Index has been made to the Marriage Licence Books 
of the Diocese of Dublin, 1672-1685, and 1713-1741 which were 
recovered in 1897 (XXX. Report, par. 1). - 

75. An Index has been made to the Unproved Wills received 
here as lodged in the District Registries of the Court of Probate, 
1858 to 1878. 

76. Transcripts of the Indexes to the Records of the Landed 
Estates Court have been made from originals lent by the Land 
Judge's Registrar,*completing those in use here down to 1878. 

77. Some progress has been made with the collation of the 
different Diocesan Indexes of Wills preliminary to the intended 
Consolidated Index. The collation of the Indexes for Cashel and 
Emly, Cork and Ross, Cloyne, Limerick, Raphoe, and Waterford 
and Lismore, has been completed during the year. The revised 
Indexes to the Wills of Clonfert and Ossory have been 
re-engrossed for public use. 

78. An Index has been made to the collection of Council Office 
papers relating to Unions and Divisions of Parishes and Changes 
of Sites of Parish Churches, down to 1845. 

P Anting of Calendars, Indexes, and Records. 

79. Section 21 of the Public Records Act, 1867, founding this 
Office, placed prominently among the duties of the Department 
the printing " from time to time such Calendars, Catalogues, and 
Indexes of Records, and also such Records in the custody of the 
Master of the Rolls, as the Chief Secretary may select, or as the 
Master of the Rolls shall recommend as fit to be printed." With 
the exception of the long-completed Facsimiles of National

uui>ei'il>fc'^ of Ireland, this important branch of the work of the 

Ice hus hitherto been represented only by the Appendixes to 

le Annual Reports. This form of publication is in several 

sixvcs inconvenient, and, as the means of publishing such work, 

tor some years been entirelj' discontinued in the London 

,pl < >rtice. The desire of giving due effect to the intention of 

section has ever been in the view of the heads of the 

-par:iiK'iit, and the hope of its realisation has been adverted to 

•vcial of Sir Samuel Ferguson's early reports. 

SO. A large amount of manuscript matter left by the former 
iih Ktcord Conmiission on its determination in 1830 was 
.rjinled by the Commissioners then as almost ripe for publi- 
tion. A closer acquaintance with this material shows it to be, 
jugh I UK [uestionably valuable for reference, yet very incomplete, 
id unsuitable in form for publication. The only group of this 
iteri;il tit in its present state for such use is that consisting of 
scripts and translations of the early Irish Statutes. Even 
se prove to be very imperfect. The task of revising and 
Epli'ting the text and translation as left by the Commissioners 
ur.dertaken by Dr. Digges La Touche, and much work for this 
irposL' was done under his direction. I feel it to be one of 
iy tirst duties to complete this work, and to have ready for press 
le material for a volume of the early Statutes of Ireland, when- 
rer your Excellency, with the consent of the Treasury, may see 
" to cause to be printed this most valuable contribution to the 
story ...f the country, as yet for the most part unpublished. The 
ity of preparing this work for press has been undertaken by 
[r. Berry, Assistant Deputy Keeper, and some progress has been 
lade. 

81. I'^iot less important for historical research are the early 
i.sticiary Rolls, cuntaining entries of legal and other business 
)Mit'tiiues including proceedings in Parliament and orders of 
16 Council) before the Capitalis Juaticiarius, the Chief Governor 
Ireland, in the course of his journeys through the country, 
[any of these Rolls were included in the collections for a 
ropcjsed publication of the. Plea and Memoranda Rolls by the 
"i-sli IN'Curd Commission. This work of the Commissioners is 
pr}' incomplete and unsuitable for publication, as has been 
united out in the Twenty-sixth Report of the Deputy Keeper, 
oi). As a j)reliminary to the preparation for press of a Calendar 
tlirstj Rolls, a full abstract of two of the earlier Rolls of 
I Ward I. was prepared during the year, and it is proposed to 
)ntinue this work. 

There was published during the year " An Index to the ^xx. Rep. 
^ct or ( li-aut Books and Original Wills of the Diocese of Dublin, par. 82. 
roiu ],s()() to ISo.S," as an Appendix to the 80th Report of the 
■'eputy Keeper. This, a continuation of the similar Index to 
^^"*>. j)nl)lished with the 26th Report, was prepared imder the 
ireetioii i,f Dr. Digges La Touche, and the greater part was 
r^««ed through the press by him.

yi. The Incumbent of Caliy reported the finding of a book of 
loose leaves — a Register of Marriages, 1838—5. This had been 
returned in the original inventory of the Records of the pariah, 
but wiu not forthcoming when the books were transferred to this 
Ortice. It has now been sent up and deposited with the other 
Kccords of the parish here. 

!)2. Tlie Incumbent ot Trim also reported the existence of two 
vuUiiiies not included in the Inventory of the Records of his 
parish ; one a Register of Baptisms, with entries of Contirma- 
tions from 1782 ; the other. Baptisms, Marriages, and Bui'ials, 

1,S2!)-1849 

'.)?». A statement, made by a private person, led to inquiries 
which showed that a Register of the Parish of Dunkerrin, Count}" 
Tip[»eraiy, which was included in the original Inventory and 
Retention Order, is no longer in the hands of the Incumbent. A 
lengthened correspondence and inquiries in various quarters have 
not as yet led to its being found. This case affords another 
instance of the danger which attends the local custody of Records, 
even with every precaution provided by the Acts strenuously 
enforced. The Records of this parish were committed to the 
care of the Incumbent in 1879. Every year since, as required 
Ijy the Act, the successive Incumbents have reported that the 
Records were all safe. Yet, apparently all this time the earliest 
volume described in the order was wanting, and it remained for 
a private applicant to give the information of its absence. 

It is only just to say, that, though occasional instances of great 
neglect come under notice, the vast majority of the clergy show 
every care for their charge, and a willing-ness loyally to carry out 
the requirements of the Acts. 

94. It may be suggested that the safety of the older Parish 
Records might be secured, without to any large extent defeating 
the intention of the Act of 1876, by encouraging Incumbents 
charged with the custody of Records under Retention Orders, 
while they retain the later more frequently consulted books, 
say, for the last seventy years, to deposit in this OiEce the earlier 
volumes, which need more care, are of le.'^s use locally, and are 
more difficult to search and to read by persons inexperienced in 
consultiniy records. 



State Pajyer Ojjfice. 

9.'). During the year 1899 there were received from the Chief 
Secretary's Office : — 

(i.) Seventy-one carton boxes of State Papers for the year 
1889. These have been examined, labelled, and replaced in 52 
canons (Nos. 3-1-59 to 3510.) 

(ii.) Papers relating to appointments of Sheriffs for the years 
1876, 1879 to 1889. These have been arranged, noted in the 
Registers, and restored to their proper places in the cartons. 



28 THE THIRTY-SECOND REPORT OF THE DEPDTY KEEPER 

96. The Searches made for the Chief Secretary's Office during 
the year numbered 262. 

97. Owing to the vacancies in the Office Staff, the work of 
re-arranging and calendaiing the older papers was much inter- 
rupted. The Calendar of Miscellaneous Papers, 1760-89, was 
advanced, and nearly completed ; and some progress has been 
made with the final arrangement and Calendar of the Papers for 
1790-1819. The Relief Commission Papers, 184-5-47, have been 
arranged and made up in brown paper parcels. 

All which is humbly submitted to your Excellency as my 
Report.

APPENDIX. 






Report of Mr. Herbert Wood on the Rkoords of the Clerks 
of the Crownt ;ind Peace transfei-red prior to 1900. 

The Office of Clerk of the Crown and Peace was originally granted 
by letters patent from the Crown, and was held for life, good 
behaviour, or during pleasure. The grantee or grantees often held 
the office for a whole province, and had the right of appointing 
depvities. The Patent of the Clex'k of the Crown always contained 
an express grant of the office of Clerk of the Peace ; * though in some 
few cases the latter was granted separately by the Crown. By the 
Act 37 Henry VIII., c. 1 (English), it was enacted that the power 
of appointment to the Peace Office should lie in the hands of the 
Cuscos Rotulorum in each county or city. That this Act was not 
immediately extended to Ireland is evident from the fact that, in the 
reign of Charles I., we find several instances of grants of the office 
of Clerk of the Peace made by the Crown. 

In the next century, Mr. Whichcote, who received letters patent 
from the Crown for the office of Clerk of the Crown (which, as usual, 
included the office of Clerk of the Peace) for the province of Leinster 
in 1724, complained that soon after his appointment the Custodes 
Rotulorum of several counties in that province appointed their own 
Clerks of the Peace. The law officers were ordered to ascertain the 
truth of the case ; but I cannot discover that any decision was arrived 
at. 

The Custodes Rotulorum exddently continued to appoint their own 
deputies, for in 1794 John Pollock was appointed Clerk of the 
Crown and Peace for the province of Leinster, but his claim to the 
Clerkship of the Peace was opposed by several Custodes Rotulorum. 
Tliey were proceeded against by the Attorney-General, who filed an 
information ex-officio against them. In Hilary term, 1799, the Court 
of King's Bench gave judgment against the Crown. Mr. Pollock, how- 
ever, in 1818, proceeded to take action in the Court of Common Pleas 
against a Mr. Harding, who had been appointed to the Clerkship of 
the Peace for the King's County by the Gustos Rotulorum in 1789. 
Whilst this action was pending, an Act was passed (1 Geo. IV., c. 27) 
assimilating the Irish to the English usage, i.e., giving the Custos the 
power of appointing the Clerk of the Peace for his coimty, and 
making the office tenable during good behaviour only, with, power to 
the Magistrates to dismiss the holder of such office in case of mis- 
demeanour, and to make the election themselves, should the Custos 
fail to do so. Soon after this Act was passed, the case of Pollock v. 
Harding was decided by the Court of Common Pleas declaring that 
the power of appointment was vested in the Crown (Mich., 1821). 

A further Bill was accordingly prepared to extend the former Act 
so as to include those Clerks of the Peace w hose ap pointment prior 

• The reason wliv the srant of the office of Clerk of the Teare was Mlwa^ s contninod in 
the patent, of Clerk of the Crown was. probably, that the Clerk of the Crowii must ho 
Clrrk of the Peace at eanh Assize. ^11 Commissions of the Peace bemg suspended whilht 
the Commission of Assize was being held.

to 1820 would be affected by the recent decision against Harding, 
but such Bill docs not appear to have been passed into law. How- 
ever, with two or three exceptions, the two offices were held separately, 
the Clerk of the Crown being appointed by the Crown, and the 
Clerk of the Peace by the Custos Rotulorum of the county, till 1877, 
when, by the Act 40 & 41 Vic, c. 56, it was provided that, in any 
county or county of a city, upon the death or resignation of either 
Clerk, the two offices should, as soon as possible, be amalgamated. 

CROWN OFFICE. 

The Clerk of the Crown may be regarded as the Clerk of the 
Court of Assize, as well as the Secretary to the Grand Jury for 
criminal business. His duties are various, arising partly at Common 
Law, and pai'tly out of a series of legislative enactments. Tliey may 
be enumerated as follows : — 

i. Criminal. — His duties, under this head, consist of receiving and 
preserving all informations, examinations and recognizances 
of the Ma^strates; di'awing up bills of indictment in cases 
in which they have not been prepared by the Crown 
Sohcitor, or for private individuals; swearing the Grand 
Jury, and attending them with the indictments ; attending 
the Crown Court, arraigning the prisoners, entering on 
record all pleas, orders and proceedings of the Court in the 
Crown Book ; swearing and examining the several witnesses 
on the trials ; preparing and keeping all records of the 
Assizes ; preparing all warrants necessary for the trans- 
mission of prisoners, the execution of offenders, &c. 

ii. Fiscal. — It was the duty of the Clerk of the Crown to file and 
keep all affidavits, maps, plans and estimates for grounding 
any presentments or affidavits accounting for public money; 
to deliver copies of all presentments to the Grand Jurors, 
and of all discharged queries to the Treasurer of the Coiiuty ; 
to make out queries on all presentments of the Grand Jury ; 
to record the fiat of the Judge ; to receive traverses, &c. 
The Local Government (Ireland) Act, 61 & 62 Vic, c. 37, 
s. 14, has recently deprived the Clerk of the Crown of the 
above duties by transferring all the fiscal business of the 
county to the Coimty Councils. 

iii. Coroners' Inquests. — All inquests held by Coroners are returned 
to the Clerk of the Crown, with the depositions, examina- 
tions, &c, prior to the ensuing Assizes. 

iv. Civil. — These duties were those of Registrar of the Civil Bill 
side of the Assize Court, in which decrees, dismisses, 
renewals and appeals were heard under the Acts 2 Anne 
c. 18, and 1 Geo. II. c. 14. In 1796, when this business was 
handed over to the Assistant Barrister at Quarter Sessions, 
the Registrarship devolved upon the Clerk of the Peace. 

V. Misrellnneniis. — Tliese consist of making up and retmming all 
estreats into the Exchequer; receiving and keeping printed 
copies of the registiy books of the freeholders of the 
county, which the Clerk of the Peace was required to furnish 
him with at eveiy Spring Assizes; producing sxich printed 
copies at every election of Members of Parliament, if 
required ; making returns in obedience to orders of Parlia- 
ment ; occasionally taxing costs, &c. Some of the above 
duties are now obsolete. 



KEKfER OFTHK PUBLIC RECORDS IN IRELAND. 31 

The Clerk of the Crown of the Queen's Bench is the officer of the 
Queen's Bench (Crown Side), which possesses original jurisdiction 
in criminal matters and superintendence over inferior jurisdictions 
•onnected with the preservation of the peace. The Judges of this 
Court are the Chief Conservators of the Peace, and Supreme Coroners 
throuo"hout Ireland. Presentments by the Grand Jxirors of the 
countv and city of Dubhn were formerly made in the King's Bench, 
io that the Clerk of the Crown of the King's Bench, besides his other 
duties, performed the functions, both fiscal and criminal, of the 
Clerk of the Crown, for the above county and city. In 1729, to 
leHevc the pressure on the gaols through the increase of crime, a 
Commi.ssion Coiu't of Oyer and Terminer was created for the county 
;ind city of Dublin, and sat in the King's Bench. The Officer of the 
King's Bench continued to discharge the office of Clerk to such Com- 
mission till 1794, when he was obliged to resign his duties, as far as 
the Court of Oyer and Terminer was concerned, to John Pollock, 
who claimed it as grantee of the office of Clerk of the Crown for the 
province of Leinster. The former continued, however, to perform the 
fiscal duties attendant on his office till, by the Act of 7 & 8 Vic, c. 
106 (1844) such duties for the county of Dublin were handed over 
to the Clerk of the Crown for Leinster, whilst, a few years lat-er, by 
the Act 12 (& 13 Vic, c 97, s. 42, all the fiscal powers of the Grand 
Jmy for the city of Dublin were transferred to the Municipal Council 
of Dublin. The Clerk of the Municipal Council, however, was obliged 
each year to lodge with the Clerk of the Crown of the Qiieen's Bench 
a schedule of such appUcations with respect to Grand Jury Cess as were 
approved of by the Coimcil, to be fiated by the Judge. Tliis last 
connecting link between the Queen's Bench and the financial adminis- 
tration of the city ha-s recently been severed by the Local Government 
(Ireland) Act. 

PEACE OFFICE. 

The office of Clerk of the Peace grew out of the Commissions 
appointing Justices of the Peace. These were at first issued in 
England under the Act 18 Ed. III., stat. 2, c. 2, " to hear and deter- 
mine felonies and trespasses done against the Peace." Previous to 
this Act these Justices were called Conservators or Guardians of the 
Peace. By the Act 36 Ed. III., c 12, it was enacted that, in 
their commissions, they should be authorised to hold sessions on 
foiu- stated seasons of the year. This was the origin, of Quarter 
Sessions. The Magistrates' commissions gave them jxirisdiction over 
all crimes affecting the public peace, excepting treasons. Felonies 
and trespasses were m_entioned. but by the Acts 1 &; 2 Philip and 
^lary, c 13, and 10 Car, I., c IS, the Justices were ordered to for- 
^v;trcl cases of felonies (except petty larcenies) to the Assizes. Cases 
'f assaults, riots, rescues of cattle or goods taken for di-stress, and 
trespass attended with violence, came within their jurisdiction. 
Although the earlier Acts were adopted in Ireland only by the Act 
10 Henrv VII., Commissions of the Peace had been recognised m 
this countrv long before, as the following passage in the Irish Act of 
-S Henrv VI., c 2, will show : " saving the commissions made or to 
l»f' made to Justices or Keepers of the Peace after the old custom. ' 
Bolides these regular Quarter Sessions, Special Sessions have at 
various times been authorised to be held for the execution of some 
particular branch of magisterial duty, such as the registration of free- 
holders, presentment sessions, &c. 



32 APPENDIX TO THIRTY-SECOND REPORT OF THE DEPUTY 

In consequence of the disturbed state of the country at the end of 
the eighteenth centui-y, some counties were, for their easier administra- 
tion, divided into districts under an Act of 1787, and a Barrister of 
not less than six years' standing appointed to assist the Justices in 
the administration of justice. This plan was found so eflFectual that 
the procedure was extended to other coimties. In the appointment 
of an Assistant Barrister, he was made a Magistrate virtute officii, 
but it was left to the cUscretion of the other magistrates to make him 
chairman or not; but, with few exceptions, this appears to have been 
regularly done. A similar authority had been held by the Recorder 
of the city of Dublin, and other cities with a criminal jurisdiction, for 
a long time previously. 

Soon afterwards, in 1 796, the jurisdiction in ordinary Civil Bill 
cases was transferred from the Judges at Assizes and the Sheriffs to 
the Assistant Barrister, and the Clerk of the Peace became his 
Registrar. 

In the same year, by the Act 36 George III., c. 20, s. 17, magis- 
trates were authorised to hold Petty Sessions in proclaimed districts. 
The convenience of such an arrangement apparently caused the 
system of Petty Sessions Courts to be extended to other districts. 
The procedure was improved by the Act 7 and 8 George IV., c. 67, 
by which the magistrates could divide the counties into districts for 
such a purpose. They were to forward all informations and recog- 
nizances to the Clerks of the Crown and Peace once every month, and 
the Statute required that, in any magisterial act, two Justices should 
concur. 

The criminal and civil jurisdiction of the Magistrates and Assistant 
Barristers was gradually extended from time to time. Amongst the 
more important extensions of the Assistant Barristers' civil authority 
may be noted the following. In 1816, by the Act 56 George III., 
c. 38, ejectment proceedings were to be taken before the Assistant 
Barrister, and in 1827, by the Act 7 and 8 George IV., c. 69, replevin 
cases were to be tried before liim. By the Act 6 and 7 William IV., 
c. 75, the Assistant Barrister was given an equitable jimsdiction in 
cases involving legacies or distributive shares, where the amount was 
small. The Act of 14 and 15 Vic, c. 57, (1851), gave him the 
right to hear and decide insolvency petitions, which had formerly been 
tried by Commissioners. In 1857, by the Probate Act, 20 and 21 
Vic, c 79, all contentious matters as to grants of probate or 
administration, where the amount in dispute did not exceed a certain 
limit, were brought within his jurisdiction. In 1858, by the Act 
21 and 22 Vic, c. 88, s. 3, it wa^ ena-cted that Assistant 
Barristers should henceforth be styled Chairmen of Quarter Sessions. 
In 1870, by the Landlord and Tenant (Ireland) Act, 33 & 34 
Vic, c 46, cases relating to the occupation and ownership of land 
in Ireland were to be decided by them. The title of Chairmen of 
Quarter Sessions was again altered in 1877, when, by the Act 40 & 41 
Vic, c 56, various changes were made in the jurisdiction and status 
of the County Courts and County Officers, amongst others being the 
alteration in the style of Chairmen, other than Recorders, to the title 
of " County Court Judges and Chairmen of Quarter Sessions." The 
most important change effected by this Act was the partial devolution 
of the jurisdiction of the Court of Chancery upon the Civil Bill 
Courts, wliereby proceedings connected ^vith the execution of trusts, 
mortgage charges, sale or partition of property, partnerships, infants.

antl .uiuiinistration matters, (tc, where the personal property does not 
^xct"'«l £^00, and the real property £30 annually, are to be taken before 
the County Court Judge, who is invested with all the powers of a 
Jutli^e of tlie High Coiirt of Chancery therein. 

By the above Act the offices of the Clerks of the Crown and Peace 
in each county were to be amalgamated on the death or retirement of 
either, and the future holder of the joint office was to be a civil 
stn-ant, and appointed by the Lord Lieutenant. 

In cities and towns which are counties in themselves, the position 
of Assistant Barrister is held by the Recoi-der. Tliese separate 
criuiuial and civil jurisdictions held by Coi^porations were formerly 
nior(.- numerous. The only Recorderships now existing in Ireland are 
those oi the cities of Dublin, Cork, Belfast, and Londonderry, and the 
town of Galway. 

Tlio duties of the Clerk of the Peace are as follows: — 

i. Criminal. — Tliese include the receiving and preserving all in- 
formations, examinations and recognizances forwarded by 
the Magistrates; preparing bills of indictment on all in- 
formations; posting-notices of times of sessions; preparing 
the precept for the Quarter Sessions; getting it signed by 
two Magistrates, and delivered to the Sheiiff; entering all 
indictments, &c.. in the Crown Book ; calling over and 
swearing the Grand Jiuy, prosecutors, and witnesses for the 
CroviTi ; estreating recognizances and making a retiun to the 
Exchequer, (fee. 

ii. Fiscal. — The Clerk of the Peace formerly attended at Special 
Sessions held under the Road Presentment Act, entered the 
approval or disapproval of the Magistrates on all applications 
as ordered, and discharged or respited Queries as the Bench 
should direct. 

iii. Civil Bill Court. — As the Clerk of the Peace was the Registrar 
of this Court, he had to prepare all summonses, decrees, &c., 
in cases of Civil Bills, Renewals, Ejectments, Probate and 
Legacy cases, and keep registers recording the cases with the 
decisions of the Assistant Barrister. Records of Civil Bill 
cases decided by the Seneschals of the Manors were also 
lodged with him. The office of Registrar of the Civil Bill 
Court has recently been separated from that of Clerk of the 
Peace, by the Act 40 & 41 Vic, c. 56. 

iv. Miscellaneous. — The miscellaneous duties of the Clerk of the 
Peace have comprised not only those where he is acting as 
Clerk to the Assistant Barrister or to the Magistrates acting 
magisterially, such as the registration of Freeholders, Votei-s. 
Jurors, Arms, Blacksmiths, ifec. ; insolvency cases ; election 
of Treasurers, High Constables, Petty Sessions Clerks, &c. ; 
the issuing of certificates for publicans' licences on the 
orders of the Magistrates, (fee. ; but also those duties imposed 
upon him personally by Act of Parliament, such as the 
receipt of notices of Meeting-houses, Printing presses, 
Jesuits ; Manor Court papers. Poor Law Commissioners' 
orders, Fishery papers, Boundary notices, Trees Affidavits ; 
Maps, Plans, and Awards; preparation of Jurors' and 
Voters' Lists, Militia Returns, ifec. Several of the above 
duties are now obsolete.

ARMS LICENCE PAPERS, 1793—1846. 

The registration of arms was enforced at the end of the 
eighteenth century, on account of the disturbed state of the country 
during the Insurrection movement. The papers connected there- 
with include the following : — 

1. Arms Notifications and Applications. — Formerly it was 

necessary for every one who had arms in his possession 
to notify to the Clerk of the Sessions or Peace the number 
of arms which he kept, and to state his belief that he 
was qualified to keep them. After so doing, on appearing 
before a Magistrate, he could obtain a certificate or 
licence. By tlie Act 6 it 7 Yict., c. 74, Notifications 
were replaced by Applications, or Notices to the Clerk of 
the Peace that applicant intended to apply to the magis- 
trates at the ensuing sessions for a licence to keep arms. 

2. Arms Certificate^ and Licences^. — These certificates were 

signed by a Alagistrate or Magistrates, and stated that 
the applicant was a proper person to keep arms. Since

printed an absti'act or siunmaiy of the duties or obliga- 
tions required by persons licensed to keep arms.

INDENTURES, see " Deeds." 



INDICTMENT, BILLS OF, 1642—1871. 

A bill of indictment is a bill, or declaration, of complaint ex- 
hibited for some offence, criminal or penal, briefly relating the 
offence for which the accused is indicted. They were formerly 
prepared by the Clerk of the Crown or Peace under the direction 
of the Crown Solicitor; but now indictments at Assizes are pre- 
pared by the Senior Crown Counsel, and those at Quarter Sessions 
by the Clerk of the Peace. They are laid before the grand jury, 
and if they find a " true bill," the foreman signs accordingly " for 
self and fellows," and the case is then tried by a petty jury. If 
not, it is either called a " no bill," when there is not sufficient 
evidence against the accused, or an " unconsidered bill." The 
number on the bill is the same as the number of the entry in the 
Crown Book, which contains an abstract of each bill of indictment. 
These bills of indictment are in every case, except county Sligo 
and Dublin city, put up with the informations on which indictments 
are founded, as " Crown Files." 



INDICTMENT BOOKS, LISTS AND DOCQUETS, . 1774—1866. 
These are registers or lists of persons indicted, with the nature 
of the offenoe, date of Assizes or Sessions at wliich the accused was 
Ijrought up, and how the case was disposed of. The names of the 
magistrates before whom the informations were sworn are also 
given in the lists or docquets. " Extra Indictments " were those 
cases where no bill of indictment was made out, through the person 
accused not beinsf amenable. 



INFORMATIONS, 1642—1871. 

Informations, which are accusations or complaints laid before a 
magistrate against a person for some criminal offence, constitute 
the foundation upon which the bills of indictment are constructed. 
E.Kcepling when they are put up as a class by themselves, or with 
" Convictions," they are included in " Crown Files."

the hearings of petitions by Insolvents, imprisoned for debts 
amoimting to less than £10, to be supported by their creditors, 
or in default to be discharged from prison under the Act 7 George 
IV., c. 74, s. 83. All the other hearing books come within the 
period 1852 — 1873, and contain minutes of hearings of insolvent 
cases remitted by the Chief Clerk in Insolvency to the Assistant 
Barrister for decision, under the Act 14 & 15 Vic, c. 57. — ^For 
minutes of hearings before 1821 see " Crown Books at Quarter 
Sessions." 

INSOLVENTS' PETITIONS, SCHEDULES, &c., . 1705—1874. 

Before 1821, when an insolvent was imprisoned for debt, he 
usually lodged a petition for discharge with the Clerk of the Peace 
for the consideration of the Magistrates. Assistant Bai-rister, or of 
the Mayor (in which latter case the insolvent's papers are to be found 
amongst " Mayors' or Reoorders' Papers "). With the petition was 
included a schedule of his debts and assets, and an assignment of 
his property. As a notice of his petition was necessarily inserted 
in the Gazette, copies of the Gazettes are often to be found amongst 
Insolvents' papers at this period. By the Act 1 & 2 George IV., 
c. 59 (1821), this jurisdiction was transfeiTcd from the Assistant 
Barrister to the Commissioners in Insolvency, who travelled i"oimd 
the country to try cases. Between 1821 — 1852 almost the only 
insolvency papers in the various Peace Offices are the petitions 
to the Assistant Barrister to grant insolvent a weekly allowance 
from his creditors, or, in default, to discharge him from custody. 
In 1851, by the Act 14 <k 15 Vic, c 57, the Commissionerships 
were abolished, and, although insolvents had to send their petitions 
and schedules to the Insolvent Court in Dublin, they were

to constables to issue the proclamations, informations and examina- 
tion=:, though these latter are generally to be found with " Crown

By the Catholic Emancipation Act of 10 George IV., c. 7, s. 28, 
all Jesuits or pei'sons bound by religious or monastic vows, living 
in the Kingdom at the time, or afterwards coming thereto, were 
obliged to fonvard to the Clerk of the Peace a notice or statement 
of their name, age, place of birth, name of Order, and Superior, 
usual place of residence, and date of registry. The above records 
consist of these notices, circulars sent to the different Clerks of the 
Peace calling for returns of such notices, and copies of such returns 
sent to the Chief Secretary. — See also " Returns and Orders." The 
above Act, though never repealed, is now obsolete as far as these 
resfistration notices are concerned. 



JURORS' BOOKS (SPECIAL AND GENERAL), . 1835—1878. 
These books contain the names of jurors, their abode, occupa- 
tion, annual value of rated property, and situation thereof. They 
were made up from the Jiu-ors' Lists as revised annually by the 
magistrates, and copies were sent to the Sheriff. Since 1871 the 
books of Special Jurors are kept distinct from those of General 
Jurors, as the jurors are now divided into the two classes of 
Special and General by the Clerk of the Peace before the books are 
made up, instead of by the Sheriff, as formerly, after receiving the 
Jiuors' Books. 



62 APPENDIX TO THIRTY-SECOND REPORT OF THE DEPUTY 



JUROKS' (MARKET) BOOKS, .... 1844—1860. 

In order to relieve the magistrates, Market Jurors were appointed

butter, bread, &c., exposed for sale, and the weights and measures 

- in use, in the markets, and to seize such food and weights, if 
necessary, and to bring them with their owner before the Chief 
Magistrate. Tliese books are registers of the Market Jurors' 
names, the various cases which were brought by them imder the 
notice of the Chief Magistrate, and his decision as to the goods 
being condemned or otherwise. In some counties, lists of Market 
Jiurors were entered in the " Crown Books at Quarter Sessions. —

These were formerly annual lists or returns made by the high 
constable and collector of grand jury cess (upon receiving a precept 
from the Clerk of the Peace), enumerating those who were qualified 
to serve as jurors, with their residence, title or profession, and 
qualification. These lists were then revised by the magistrates, and 
copied into books by the Clerks of the Peace for the use of the 
Sheriffs. But from "1871 (34 & 35 Vic, c. 65) the returns have 
been made out by the Clerks of the Union, or the Collector 
General for the city of Dublin ; and the Clerk of the Peace, upon 
receipt of these returns separates them into general and special 
lists. Tliey are then revised by the Chairman of Quarter Sessions, 
and copies are printed. The above class consists not only of the 
Clerks of the Unions' returns, and Chairmen's amended lists, but 
also of warrants issued by the Lord Lieutenant for the holding of 
special sessions for the revision of jurors' lists, on account of the 
sessions appointed by the magistrates having been abortive, through 
non-attendance of magistrates, &c. ; also correspondence with 
Dublin Castle with respect to such warrants.

MAGISTRATES' AND CESS PAYERS' OATHS, 

DECLARATIONS, &c., 1785—1878. 

By the Act 23 George III., c. 30, in order to prevent improper 
people from becoming magistrates, it was enacted that any new 
magistrate should take the oath of having a sufficient property to 
qualify him for the post. By the Act 59 George III., c. 84, it was 
enacted that no magistrate should act in such capacity at the Road 
Presentment Sessions without taking an oath of qualification, and 
of intention to faithfully fulfil his duty. By the Act 3 & 4 William 
rV., c. 78, s. 6, a ntunber of Cess Payers, not more than twelve 
or less than five, were to be appointed by the Grand Jury to act 
with the magistrates at such Presentment Sessions, and both magis- 
trates and Cess Payers had to take an oath of intention to faith- 
fully perform their duty. By the Act 6 & 7 WiUiam IV., c. 116, 
this oath was altered to a declaration. With these oaths and 
declarations will be found lists or certificates by the Chairman at 
these Sessions, of the names of the magistrates and cess payers 
who were present and made the declaration. — See also " Present- 
ment Papers," amongst which, in a few cases, these oaths and 
declarations were kept, though they should be lodged with the 
Clerk of the Peace. By the Local ijrovemment (Ireland) Act, 61 
& 62 Yic, c. 67, these declarations are no longer necessary, and 
the Road Presentment Sessions business is done by the District 
Councils.

Papers " ; for awards, see " Presentment Books " ; and for traverses 
of award of grand jury, see " Crown Books at Assizes." 



MANOR COURT RECORDS, .... 1785—1859. 

In 1785. by the Act 25 George III., c. 44, jurisdiction in civil 
bill matters was given to the seneschals of manors " for the more 
speedy and easy recovery of small debts." These manor court 
records consist mostly of copies of the seneschal's registers of 
decrees made by him in civil bill and court baron proceedings, 
which he was obliged to lodge with the Clerk of the Peace under 
the above Act. Appeals against his decisions were made to the 
Judges at Assize, or. in the case of the county and city of Dublin, 
to the Judges at JVisi Priiis. The distinction between the civil 
bill procedure of the Seneschals and Assistant Barristers lay 
chiefly in the fact that cases before the former were tried by a 






KEEPEli OF THE PUBLIC RECORDS IN IRELAND. 67 

uirv. Besides these records, there are a few bonds and deeds of 
appuinLment of seneschals, and grand jury books, containing such 
eniries as the appointments of constables, appraisers, adjusters of 
woi^'lits and measures, fines for false weights, presentments for 
uiiisances, &rC. The civil jurisdiction of the manor courts was

MANOR COUET PATENTS, 1515—1721. 

These are copies, constats or abstracts, of those parts of charters 
or loiters patent, by which manorial jiunsdiction was granted. The 
seneschals were obliged to lodge these with the Clerk of the Peace 
by the Act 27 George III., c. 22, s. 2. 

MAPS, PLANS, AWARDS, &c., .... 1777—1878. 

These consist principally of maps, &c., ordered by Parliamentary 
Standing Orders to be deposited with the Clerk of the Peace, 
imder the Acts 7 Wilham IV., and 1 Vic, c 83. They include 
maps and plans of railways, tramways, canals, coach and post roads,

firmaries, waterworks, and borough improvements, reservoirs, land 
reclamations, piers and harboinrs, drainage, ordnance survey sheets, 
boundary maps, Newry and Barrow Navigation, petty sessions dis- 
tricts, &c. Together with the maps and plans there are the awards, 
inquisitions, judgments, reference books, reports, bye-laws, standing

MAYORS', RECORDERS', OR PROVOSTS' COURT RECORDS. 
The Record Court was the chief coiurt of civil jurisdiction in a 
city or borough. By some corporations the jurisdiction was 
claimed by prescriptive right, in others it was founded expressly 
by charter. It was presided over by the chief magistrate, while 
the Recorder was at first only an adviser or assessor, but after- 
wards sat as sole judge (3 & 4 Vic, c 108, s. 175). No action 
could be brought in this Court for a less sum than forty shilhngs 
(Irish cm-rency). Actions for smaller sums were to be brought in 
the Court of Conscience. Tlie proceedings in the Record Courts 
were initiated by actions against persons, attachments against goods, 
or foreign attachments against goods in a third person's hands. 
In the forms and course of pleading, the Court observed the prac- 
tice of the superior courts. Tlie Marshal and Serjeant at Mace 
ron-esponded to the Sheriff and Process Servers respectively m 
tlie counties. The records of these courts consisted of : — 

.]fa>/nrs or- Recorders Court Papers, . . ■ 1761—1878, 

■ which contain declarations, pleas and demurrers, venires, 

bills of costs, replications, cognovits, affidavits to show 

cause of bail, bail pieces, " sci. fas," issues, petitions, 

notices, insolvency petitions, &c. ^

Declarations, Pleadings, Bail or manucaptory books, &c. The 
Manor Coxu-ts possessed a similar jurisdiction to the above. 

MEDICAL CERTIFICATES, 1763—1871. 

These are certi^cates issued by medical men to excuse, on account 
of ill health, the presence of prosecutors or witnesses from appear- 
ing at trials, or jurors from answering to their names when called. 
They are more often to be foimd either in " Crown Files," or " Fines

MEETING HOUSES (RELIGIOUS), NOTICES TO 

REGISTER, 1760—1869. 

By the Acts 6 George I., c. 5, and 52 George III., c. 155, 
Protestant dissenters were relieved from the disabilities imposed 
on them by law in the reign of Charles II., and allowed freedom 
of worship on condition that they registered their place of assembly 
with the bishop, archdeacon, or Clerk of Peace, and took the 
oaths of allegiance and supremacy and made a declaration. These 
notices simply state that a meeting house has been erected, or deter- 
mined upon, for worship at a certain place by a certain sect.

qualifications, commissions, and promotions. The necessity for 
these qualifications for militia officers was abolished in 1869, by the

OATHS AND DECLARATIONS. 

Oaths may be classed under two heads. First, the oaths of 
alle^ance and supremacv, which formerly every one fillmg any 
office, as well as Roman CathoHos desiring to qualify for elections, 
were obliged to take. For these, see " Oaths of Allegiance, &c. 
The second class of oaths comprises those taken by persons on 
appointment to an office, being affidavits or declarations of inten- 
tion faithfullv and diligently to perform the duties of the office. 
These will be found under their several headings, as, ^^ Attorneys 
affidavits" "Magistrates' oaths and declarations,' "Constables 
oaths," ''Election oaths," &c. By several Acts m the reign ot 
Wilham IV., a declaration could in many cases be substituted tor 
an oath. 

OATHS OF ALLEGIANCE (CERTIFICATES AND 

RETURNS), 1805—1830. 

These are certificates by the Clerk of the Peace that certain 
oeople had taken the oath of allegianoa and made the declaration 
as required by the Act 2 Anne, c. 6. These '^^}'^'!''^' ^^^.^l^ll 
produced by the Roman Catholic voters at an election, before the 
K coul/allow them to record their vote. Tlie ReturnMco-ty

since last election. 



70 APPENDIX TO THIRTY-SECOND REPORT OF THE DEPUTY 

OATHS OF ALLEGIANCE, &c., ROLLS, . . 1727—1845. 
It was formerly necessary (2 Anne, c. 6) for any one holding, or 
obtaining, any office, civil or military, or any Roman Catholic 
desiring to qualify as an eleotor, to take an oath of allegiance and 
supremacy, and to make a declaration against transubstantiation 
before being allowed to fill such office, or record his vote at aa 
election. By the Act 10 George IV., c. 7, s. 2, a new form of allegi- 
ance oath (omitting the declaration against transubstantiation) was 
rendered obligatoiy, but only upon Roman Catholics desiring to fill 
any office or become an elector. After taking the oath, the roll 
was signed, and finally in most cases was sent up to the Rolls 
Office (see Search Room Index, Court of Chancer}'-, Vol. 2). The 
affidavits of the magistrates before whom oaths were taken, and of 
the Clerks of the Peace, who issued certificates, to faithfully perform 
their duty, are also included in this series.

PASSPORT PAPERS, 1858. 

In this year notices respecting the issuing of Foreign Office 
Passports to individuals about to travel abroad were furnished to 
the various Clerks of the Peace to distribute, through the con- 
stabulary, amongst the magistrates of their county, who were re- 
quired to forward their signatures and impressions of their seals, 
for transmission to the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs. The

&c. — See also " Commissions," and under specific titles. 

PAWNBROKERS' BONDS AND REGISTER, . 1800—1876. 

By the Act 26 George III., c. 43, s. 14, the business of pawn- 
broldng was first regulated by statute. Every pawnbroker, on 
being licensed, was required to enter into a bond, and a certificate 
was given him by the Treasurer, or Town Clerk, which had to be 
delivered to the City Marshal of the city of Dublin for registration. 
The Register records the names of the pawnbrokers to whom 
certificates were issued, and their sureties. 

PETITIONS AND MEMORIALS, .... 1660—1871. 

These consist of petitions to Judge of Assize, or Assistant 
Barrister, for discharge from prison of persons committed under a 
gi'een wax process ; for remittance of fine, compensation for 
damaged malt, &c. (A green wax prooess was a warrant issuing 
out of the Court of Exchequer to the Sheriff to levy fines, &c., and 
was so called because it was issued under the seal, made of green 
wax, of that Coiirt,) — See also " Jiu'ors' Petitions to remit fines,"

They were delivered after the election to the Clerk of the Peace by 
the Sheriff, with an affidavit of verity. From 1850, (13 & I4 
Vic, c. 69, s. 99) they were deposited in the Hanaper Office till 
1872, when, by the Ballot Act of that year, open voting was 
abolished. They sometimes include polling officers' or sheriffs' 
poll books ; voters' hsts used at the poll, and objections ; election 
tallies ; and poll books for coroners' elections. 



POLLING DISTRICTS, ORDERS, &c., 



1851—1873. 



The earlier papers of this class come under the Act 13 & 14 
Vic, c. 68, (1850), for establishing additional places for taking 
polls. They consist of notices to the Clerk of the Peace of inten- 
tion to move the Court at Quarter Sessions to petition the Lord 
Lieutenant to alter the polhng districts; orders of the Lord 
Lieutenant to change the districts, gazettes, &o. Under the Ballot 
Act of 1872 (35 & 36 Vic, c. 33), we have the reports of the 
Commissioner of Valuation, giving a list of petty sessions and 
recommending what departures from the petty sessions boundaries 
should be made in constituting the polling districts, and the orders 
of justices of special sessions appointed by the Lord Lieutenant 
dividing the county into polling districts and appointing polling 
places. However, it being necessary in some cases to alter these 
arrangements, imder the Polling Districts Act of 1873, we have -i 
lists of the polling districts as confirmed or altered by the Order of 
the Lord Lieutenant. The Polling Districts and Petty Sessions 
Map for CO. Londonderry is an Ordnance Survey map, with the 
separate polling and petty sessions districts marked out, and the 
chansres recommended. 



POLLING- OFFICERS' OR SHERIFFS' POLL 

BOOKS, 1812—1841. 

These books, beside containing the oaths and affidavits of officers 
engaged in taking the poll, were used by the Sheriff as a sort of 
minute book of the proceedings, either at the poll or at uncontested 
elections. They are sometimes to be found amongst " Election 
Papers and Books," and " Poll Books." 

POOR LAW COMMISSIONERS' ORDERS, &c., . 1838—1876. 
These are orders of the Commissioners appointed under the Act 
1 & 2 Vic, c 56, to provide for the more effectual relief of the 
destitute poor in Ireland. They consist of orders declaring a 
Union ; orders for the election of magistrates as ex-ofjicio guardians ; 
for the election of guardians and returning officers; to raise or 
borrow money ; to insure workhouses against fire ; for contracting 
for vaocination ; general orders, <fec. With these orders are also 
included chairman's certificates of the election of magistrates as 
ex-offlcio guardians, and nomination and voting papers connected 
with the election of giiardians. Tlie Order Book (county Armagh) 
is simply a register of the orders received by the Clerk of the Peace. 
For Returns of Clerk of Poor Law Union, see " Voters' Lists.' 
Between the years 1838 — 1847 the administration of the Irish Poor

POOR RATE DECREES (COMMON LAW 

COURTS), 1849—1868. 

In order to aid the rec-overy of poor rates in Ireland, it was en 
;icLt.d by 12 k 13 Vic, c. 104, s. 17, that any poor rate decree 
of an xVssistaut Barrister, vouched for by the aliidavit of an 
attorney, and produced in a Superior Court, should have the force 
of a judgment in such Court, and could be registered as such. 
Accordingly, we have poor rate decrees, attorneys' affidavits, regis- 
ters of such decrees so lodged, and enrolments of judgments, in 
the records of the Common Law Courts. Tlie present practice 
is to make an entry of the decree in the Judgment Book, and not 
to preserve the decree itself, as formerly.

>RESENT3IENT PAPERS, 1722—1878. 

These papers comprise all the documents connected with the fiscal 
admmistration of the county by the Grand Jury. The Grand 
j^jj-^,^ which is selected by the High Sheriff, has possessed, from 
thee'arUest times, not only a jurisdiction in criminal cases, imder 
which it decides what bills of indictment are to go before a petit 
jarv at Assizes or Quarter Sessions, but also in fiscal matters, as all 
luthority connected with the making and repairing of public 
roads, Iniildings, &c., and the raising of a county oess to pay for 
*uch expenditure, has been vested in that body till 1898, when this 
tiscal jm-isdiction was merged in the County Councils by the Local 
Government (Ireland) Act, 61 & 62 Vic, c. 37. The chief officers 
of the Grand Jun.- were a Secretary, a Treasurer to keep the 
accounts and make the payments, a County Surveyor, and High 
Constables to collect the county cess. Any application for public 
works, such as the making or repairing of roads, bridges, paths, &c., 
was made first to the magistrates and cess payers assembled at Pre- 
sentment Sessions. The maps and specifications were examined, 
and, if the application was approved of, tenders for contract were 
invited, which were considered at an adjourned sessions. The 
schedules of the applications and contracts finally accepted were 
printed and laid before the Grand Jurors at the next Assizes, and 
if they also approved of them, and the Judge fiated them, the con- 
tract \vas completed. If, however, there was any objection raised 
to a presentment, it was done by a " traverse," which was heard 
before the Judge at Assizes. After a presentment had been 
finally approved, it appeared at the next Assizes as a Query, 
and if the work, or a given portion of it, had been com- 
pleted in the meantime, and the County Surveyor had issued his 
certificate that the work had been duly performed, it was then 
marked "allowed" by the foreman of the Grand Jury, and pay- 
ment was made by the County Treasurer. If not, it appeared as 
an undischarged Query in the Grand Warrant for that Assizes, 
and succeeding Assizes, till the necessary conditions for payment 
had Ijeen fulfilled. But although papers connected with the 
above proceedings form the great bulk of " Presentment Papers, 
there are also included papers in connection with the regular main- 
tenance of county buildings, officers, hospitals, lunatic asylums, &c. 
Tlie following list comprises the most important of the documents 
classed as " Presentment Papers" : —Applications for the construc- 
tion of public works, applications for payment, county surveyors

appointments of the Grand Jury. 



PRESENTItlENTS, SCHEDULES OF AFFI- 
DAVITS AND APPLICATIONS FOR, . . 1789—1877. 

Fonnerly it was necessary for applications for presentments for- 
roads, &c., to be made by way of affidavit, stating the necessity for 
the work, the amount necessary for its performance, and recom-< 
mending overseers. Since 1819 (59 George III., c. 84), such pr 
sentments have been grounded on applications made to the magis- 
trates and cess payers at presentment sessions. The Schedules of 1 
these affidavits and applications are lists prepared by the Secretaryi 
of the Grand Jury for the use of the grand jurors at the ensuing^ 
Assize.

Sessions, for the information of the Inspector-General of Prisons 
under the Act 50 George III., c. 103, and comprise the name, 
age, crime of offender, date when committed, before whom tried, 
sentence, &c. Up to 1840, they were, entitled " Prisoners' 
Returns"; from 1840, they have been called "Returns of 
Offenders." — See also " Ci-own Files." For " Prisoners' Returns 
(Bridewells)," see " Presentment Papers."

calendars of their respective gaols, recording the name of every 
prisoner who has been in his gaol since last Assize, his age, by 
whom committed, if bailed or not, and nature of offence, and if in 
gaol under a former rule, when and before whom he was tried, 
sentence imposed, and when discharged. The names of those who, 
at the conclusion of Assizes or Sessions, are handed over to the 
gaoler under rule of the judge, are entered in the Crown Book.

distributive shares, could, in case of default in payment, bring the 
ma.tter before the Assistant Barrister, who could compel the 
executors to lodge with him accounts of the administration of 
deceased's effects. But, by the Probate Act 20 & 21 Vic, c. 79, 
in cases where the deceased's personalty was under £200, and his 
real property under £300, all contentious jurisdiction as to grants 
of probate or administration has been given to the Assistant 
Barrister, whose decree is communicated to, and acted on by, the 
District Registrar. By the Act 40 & 41 Vic, c 56, this jurisdiction 
has been further extended. The above papers consist of copy 
wills, inventories, processes, affidavits, Probate Court Orders for 
referring the case to the Assistant Barrister, executors' accounts, 
&c. The Probate and Legacy Rule Books contain the decision of 
the Assistant Barrister, and sometimes a statement of the case 
with names of witnesses and process servers. Prom 1878, this

sometimes, but not often, to be found with the renewal affidavit. 
However, the " Renewal Decree Books," or, in default of them, tht 
" Civil Bill Books," contain lists of those cases in whioh renewal 
decrees have been made. The civil bill jurisdiction was handed 
over in 1796 to the Assistant Barrister, so that any renewal decree 
or affidavit made before that period, must be sought for either in 
" Crown Files " or " Civil Bill Books, at Assizes " ; except in the 
cases of the coiuity Dublin, where the judge decided these cases at 
Quaiiier Sessions, and the city of Dublin, where the Recorder

and his duties as auditor handed over to the Local Government

VOTERS' LISTS,

of names of applicants, with their addresses and qualifications, 
or are registered in a book, which becomes the Court or Ruling 
Book, the decision of the Assistant Barrister being entered against 
each name. In some coimties, these lists and books are entitled 
" Freeholders '' or " Householders '' instead of " Voters." From 
1850, the lists of claims will be found with Voters' Lists, Claims 
and Objections. 

VOTERS' OBJECTIONS, 1852—1875. 

These are either the objections of any voter to the name of 
some other voter, or apphcant, remaining, or being placed, upon the 
register, or the objections of the Clerks of the Unions, or of the 
Peace, on account of a person not being entitled to a vote. The 
original objections, in the first class, have in a very few cases 
been preserved, while in the latter class, the word " objected " is 
written on the Voters' List against the name of the person objected 
to. Amongst the Voters' Lists will be found printed lists of 
objections.

the voter's name, addi-ess and number on the register, with the 
inspector's reasons for objecting. Tliis form is submitted to the 
sheriff, or his assessor, who allows or refuses the vote. These 
objections often contain Election Tallies as well. They will some- 
times be found under the title of " Election Objections," or amongst 
Election Papers and Poll Books. — See also " Election Tally or 
Cheque Books " for a record of such objections. 



VOTERS' REGISTERS, . 



1796—1878. 



Between the years 1796 — 1850, the registers of those whose 
applications, or claims for votes, were allowed, were usually called 
either Freeholders' Registers or Householders' Registers, only a 
very few counties keeping them together as Voters' Registers {see 
" Freeholders' " and "' Householders' Registers "). From 1850, unde:' 
the Act 13 k 14 Vic, c. 69, s. 63, votei's' registers are printed 
from the voters' Lists as revised at sessions by the Assistant 
Barrister, and copies sent to the sheriff or retiu-ning officer. They

SCHEDULE II. 

The following is a list of documents found amongst the records of 
the Clerks of the Crown and Peace, but which do not properly belong 
to their collections. The reason for their appearance in these collec- 
tions would seem to be that the Clerks of the Crown and Peace some- 
times carried on, at the same time, professional work as solicitors 
or held other offices, such as that of Town Clerk. Many documents 
of a private nature will also be found under " Miscellaneous " and 
" Deeds " (see Schedule I.), which it is impossible to satisfactorily 
separate from the documents propei'ly belonging to the Crown and 
Peace officers : —

THE THIRTY-THIRD REPORT 



OF THE 



; . I DEPUTY SEEPEE OE THE PUBLIC EECORDS 

AND KEEPER OF THE STATE PAPERS 
" ^r' IN IRELAND. 



%l TO THE RIGHT HONOURABLE THE EARL 
^" CADOGAN, K,G., 

LORD LIEUTENANT-GENERAL AND GENERAL GOVERNOR OF IRELAND. 



Mat it please tour Excellenct. 

I respectfully beg to submit my Report, under the direction 
of fhe Right Honourable the Master of the Rolls, and pursuant 
to the 24th section of the Public Records (Ireland) Act, on the 
proceedings had during the year 1900 in connexion with the 
Public Records of Ireland. 

i. The valuable series of seventeenth century maps of Ireland 
preserved in this Office have, through the courtesy of His 
Majesty's Commissioners of Woods, Forests, and Lana 
Revenues, received an important addition by the presentation 
of a large map of the " Government of Athlone," which, with 
other maps and manuscripts of the Headfort Collection, was 
acquired by the Commissioners in 1837 from the then repre- 
sentative of Sir Thomas Taylor, who was deputy Surveyor- 
General of Ireland in the reign of Charles II. The map, which 
y^2i6 of very large size, consisted of several Barony maps of the 
l)own Survey, with similar contemporary maps of about the 
southern half of the County of Roscommon, of which county 
no other such maps are known to exist. Prom long exposure 
in former times the map had become so much discoloured and 
injured as to be in its then state of little use. The Roscommon 
portion, especially, being drawn on inferior paper, has suffered 
greatly. The importance and historical interest of the maps, 
,'" as well as the desire of making them available for purposes of 
7'«nore general research, induced Mr. Stafford Howard, c.b., the 
^ Commissioner in charge of the Land Revenues in Ireland, 



6 THE THIRTY-THIRD REPORT OF THE DEPUTY KEEPER 

-thrcmg-li Mr. J. Harper Scaife, the representative of tLo Com. 
missioners in Ireland, to present the map to this Office, aullieiui. 
cated copies being made for the use of thie Land llevenue» 
Department. The large map has been, as far as possible, care 
fully cleaned, re-mounted, and bound here, separated, iu the 
process, into its original component parts. 

2. The Commissioners bad also acquired a number of Baronv 
maps, which, though of the same age and cbaracter, diiter in 
detail from the record series of the Do"wti Survey. These 
appear to be, some duplicates, others, early copies of the series 
of Down Survey maps prepared for Sir "William Petty, and 
whicb, in 1787, were copied in the Bibliotheque Royale at 
Paris by Col. Yailancey, for tbe Irisb Government, to supply 
the defects caused by the disastrous fire of ] 711, in the Reconl 
set of tbe Down Survey. Mr. Howard, tbrougb Mr. Scaife, ban 
generously offered to this Office, for better preservation and 
more general utility, the Barony maps in the Land Eevenue 
Office, on tbe like condition of being supplied with copies for 
use of tbat Office. The offer bas been gratefully accepted as 
TO those maps, which appear to be duplicates of the originals. 
and, therefore, of more value than tbe Yailancey copies already 
preserved bere. The task of preparing tbe copies has been 
kindly undertaken by Major Ilaynes, r.e., of the Ordnance 
Survey Office, with the consent of the Treasury. This work 
was in progress at the end of 1900. 

o. Among the Headfort Collection acquired by the Tmi- 
missioners of Woods and Forests are also tbe volumes of tlie 
Civil Survey for many of the counties of Ireland. Tbis survey 
consists of returns made in 1654—5 of tbe extent and vriliie of 
tbe forfeited lands, and contains many facts not noted in the 
particulars and tables accompanying the subsequent inappi'd 
Down Survey. Mr. Howard, at tbe instance of Mr. Scaife, Las 
most generously offered to make these Records also available 
to the public by placing them bere, on the same condition, that 
copies should be furnished for use in the Land Revenues Office 
Tbe transcription of the books for Co. Donegal bas been com- 
pleted, and tbat of Co. Dublin was in progress a( the end of 
]900. 

4. Tbe Right Hon. the Earl Annesley having informed 
me that there were, in bis library, a number of MS. hooks 
whicb he believed to be of a public cbaracter, I visited Castle* 
App. I wellan and examined them. I found fifty-one MS volumes 
of a public nature, of whicb a brief catalogue is printed in tw 
. Appendix. Three of the volumes appear to have been origin- 
ally books of the Irish Exchequer ; twenty-seven belonged t* 
the Trustees of Forfeited Estates, 1700-3, of which body Francii 
Annesley, an ancestor of Lord Annesley, was an active member. 
Twenty-one volumes form a remarkably fine set of the boot* 
of " Survey and Distribution," showing the disposition, unde? 
Charles II., of the ownership of the lands forfeited under the 



OF THE PUBLIC RECORDS IN IRELAND. 7 

Conimouwealt]i. Other similar, but not identical, sets are pre- 
served in this Office, in the Land Eevenues Office, and in the 
Library of the Royal Irish Academy. Several of the Trustees' 
IJooks are duplicates of books here ; others, however, would 
prove a desirable addition to the Records relating to that Board 
preserved in this Office. It is to be wished that these, as well 
as the three Exchequer books, should be placed with the similar 
Records in public custody. The books liave been judiciously 
cared, and admirably preserved by Lord Annesley and his 
ancestors. 

5. In the earlier part of the nineteenth century a practice 
became very common of having marriages celebrated in Dtiblin 
by degraded or unlicensed ordained clergymen of the Estab- 
lished Church. The practice was put an end to by the ^Marriage 
Act of 1844. Soon after that date Mr. John Samuels, the 
Registrar of the Archbishop, to secure them from being lost, 
purchased some of the books of entries kept by these persons. 
Later, his son, Mr. Arthur Samuels, secured several more. On 
the death of Mr. J. H. Samuels, the Archbishop's late Registrar, 
the books were offered by his representatives to this Office, and 

. they were last year purchased with the consent of the Lords of 
the Treasury. The books are estimated to contain notes of 
some thirty thousand marriages, of which, in most cases, no 
other record exists ; and all ranks and creeds seem to have 
taken advantage of this expeditious and generally inexpensive 
method of celebrating marriages. The entries are generally 
carelessly made. An index to these books is in course of pre- 
paration. 

6. The Registrar of the Estate Duty Office, having stated that 
he held a number of old attested copies of Wills, offered 
to submit them for examination, to test if the originals had in 
all cases been returned to this Office. Those of 1812 have been 
examined, and were found to contain one the original of which 
has not been identified. It is proposed to continue the 
examination. 

. 7. Mr. T. Pakenham Law, k.c, has deposited here, under 
section 16 of the Public Records Act, an original indenture 
dated 28th Oct., 1639, between Dorraghan M'Cooge and Philip 
Regoe, conveying lands in Co. Galway. 

8. Mr. G. S. Cary informed me that he had purchased at the 
sale of the library of a local antiquary a number of Visitation 
Books of the Diocese of Cashel, for various years between 1664 
and 1772, which originally belonged to the Registry of the 
Diocese. Mr. Cary has placed some of the books here, and has 
generously promised, ultimately, to present the collection to 
the Office. 

9. Mr. T. George H. Green has deposited a Visitation Book 
of the Diocese of Dublin, 1841, which had been purchased by 
him.

THE THIRTY-THIRD REPORT OF THE DEPUTY KEEPER 



Bep. xxxli„ 
par. 80-1. 



10. A vacancy has been caused in the upper staff by- 
transfer of Mr. S. Watt to the office of the Irish Local Govei 
ment Board. The vacancy had not been filled at the end 
1900. One searcher and one "workman, who were Reserve me 
were called out to the war, and their places were kept ope 
The former has returned to duty; the latter died in Sou^ 
Africa. 

11. With the approval of the Master of the Rolls, and the 
sanction of the Treasury, two of the clerks have been engaged! 
outside office hours on work for the Historical MvSS. Com^ 
mission, under the superintendence of Mr. C. Litton FalkinerJ 
one of the Inspectors of Manuscripts under the Commission. M 

12. The Lords of the Treasury have consented to the incres 
of the pay of the inferior workmen from 155. to 18^. a week,^ 
reduction of one to be made in their number on next vacanc 

13. The convenience of Readers has been consulted in 
erection by the Board of Works, at my request, of dressinL 
rooms and lavatories for lady and gentlemen Readers in coal 
nexion with the Literary Search Room. 

14. In November I had the honour to submit to y«x 
Excellency's Chief Secretary, a scheme, approved by the Mast 
of the Rolls, for a series of Irish Record publications, 
suggested in my last annual Report. 

15. Attention has been called to the fact that many of tl 
earlier Reports of the Deputy Keeper of the Records in Irels 
are now out of print. Before any proposal to reprint them _ 
adopted I venture to suggest that as these Reports contain sonw 
matters that are not of permanent importance, or that han 
been superseded by later information, the desired object migl 
be attained, at once more conveniently and economically, 
reprinting in separate form such Indexes and Calendars as _-, 
contained in the Reports out of print, and by embodying so 
much other matter as may be of present and permanent value 
in a general Guide to the Records of Ireland. 

16. At the request of the Record Branch of the General Post^ 
Office, London, transcripts were made for, and at the expense"" 
of that Department, of tlie Lotter-books of the Chief Secretary's" 
Office, Ireland, preserved here, relating to the business of the' 
Irish Postal Service. 

17. A map of the Curragh of Kildare, transferred from the' 
Office of the Clerk of the Peace of that county, which, under 
the Curragh of Kildare Act, (1SG8), was directed to remain in 
that Office, and of whirli a copy was also received here from 
the Rolls Office, was, at the request of the Clerk of the Peace 
returned to his care by order of the Master of the Rolls. '. 

18. The examination and systematic arrangement of the 
large collections of Account and other books of the Vice-trea- 
surer, Auditor, Teller, and other Officers of the Revenue ii^

84. A consolidated index to th.e Wills and Grants of the 
Court of Probate, 1858—1877, has been drafted, and is in process 
of arrangement. Tbe index made to papers relating to Unioag 
and Divisions of Parishes ; and that to Unproved Wills from 
District Registries, have been engrossed for public use. 

85. The work of indexing the Irregular Marriage Regisiers 
which have been recently acquired (see par. 5), has been com- 
menced. 

86. A catalogue of the printed books in the library of fhig 
Department has been prepared. 

Printing of Calendars, Indexes, and Records. 

87. Pending the receipt of authority to print the works sug- 
gested in my last report, progress has been made in preparing 
for press the text and translation of the Early Statutes, and in 
calendaring the Justiciary Rolls of the reign of Edward I. 

Proceedings under Parochial Records Acts. 

88. The Registers of Baptisms, Marriages, and Burials of 
fifteen parishes which had become attachable under 38 & 39 
T'ic, c. 69, by the death or resignation of the Incumbents, were 
included in the warrants of the Master of the Rolls for transfer 
to this Office. In four of these cases the books have been 
removed here ; in six others they are retained in their parishes 
under Orders made under 39 & 40 Yic, c. 58 ; while five cases 
await completion of adequate arrangements in the parishes. 
The Records of S. Bridget, Dublin, also have been transferred,: 
the building in which they were kept having been taken down, 
and the Retention Order previously made being consequently 
cancelled. 

89. In two cases Incumbents holding books under Retention 
Orders have adopted the suggestion made in my last Report of 
the desirability of securing the greater safety and increased 
utility of the older parish books by placing them in this Office. 
In one case — Shrule, diocese of Ardagh — the earliest register 
in a very fragmentary state, has been deposited here; in the 
second case the transfer was not completed until after the close 
of the year. 

90. The Records of the Parishes transferred here comprise:

91. Tlie parishes whose Records were included in warrants for 
j-ausfer, but which keep them under Retention Orders, are : — 
Christ Church, Leeson Park, Dublin : Holy Trinity, Killiney ; 

iver and Larne ; Killeshin ; Ealrush ; and S. Laurence and 
[oly Trinity, Limerick. 

92. The number of Retention Orders, permitting the reten-' 
[tion of Parish Records in approved receptacles in their respec-' 
jtive parishes, which have been granted by the Master of the 
[Eolls, is 592, of which 565 were in force at tlie beginning of 
|l90L 

93. The Annual Reports required by the 6th section of the 
Parochial Records Act, 1876, from the clergymen to whose 
custody Records were committed under Retention Orders, were 

I all duly received last year. 

94. The Reports refer to injury from damp in nine cases. 
Suggestions have been made for protection of the books, which, 
it is hoped, may prove successful. The danger, however, from 
this source is very great in many of the coujitry Yestry rooms. 
Books belonging to tiiree parishes whose Records are held 
locally under Retention Orders, were repaired and rebound in 
this Ofl&ce. 

95. An additional volume for the parish of Desertserges, in- 
cluding entries from 1755 \o 1836, has been found by the 
Incumbent, and formally committed to his care by supple- 
mentary order. A Yestry book of the parish of Killallon, 
1820—1877, has been deposited here by the Rev. T. Rudd. 

96. Complaints continue to be received from members of the 
public of the difficulty of obtaining information from Parish 
Records remaining in local custody. Two persons reported, 
during: the year, that they had applied to parish clergymen for 
searches, but had been informed that the Records were not in 
their hands, although in each case books of the date required 
were in their custody. In both cases the books were found on 
representations being made from this Office. In another case 
a Record agent complained that repeated applications, extend- 
ing over some months, k) an incumbent, for permission to search 
his books, had failed to receive any attention. These instances 
aiford further evidence of the public inconvenience resulting 
from retaining the older registers outside this Office.

97. During the year 1900 there were received from the Chief 
Secretary's Office the papers for the year 1890, in sixty-seven 
carton boxes, with one carton of additional papers of the year 
1889. These papers have been examined, checked, and put up 
in fifty-two cartons, numbered 3,511 to 3,562. The Index and 
Registers for 1889 were received at the game time. 



24 THE THTRTT-THIRD REPORT OF THE DEPUTY KEEPER 

98. The Searches made for Government during the year 
amounted to 261. 

99. An Index has been prepared to the Reports on Prisoners'l 
Cases, 1777 to 1789. Progress has been made on the arrange-^ 
ment and indexing of the Papers for the period 1790 to 1800. 

100. The papers of the Commissioners of Ministers' iMioney 
have been arranged, indexed, and parcelled. The arrangement, 
of the papers relating to Tithe composition and applotment, 
1824—35, has been commenced, and considerable progress made. 

All which is humbly submitted to your Excellency as my

KEPORT OF MR. M. J. MacEXERY OX THE BOOKS OF THE 
TREASURY AXD ACCOUXTIXG DEPARTMEXTS OF IRE- 
LAXD. 

These Records, consisting of several thousand volumes now deposited 
in tlie Public Record Office of Ireland were transferred from the Landed 
Estates Record Office in the Custom House, which included the Record 
Branch of the Irish Treasury. 

This report deals with the principal Records of the Irish Treasury 
previous to 1837, when the office of Vice-Treasurer was abolished. In 
addition to the classes dealt with here, the books transferred include a 
small collection of a minor and miscellaneous character consisting of 
rough books from which the items were posted into the principal Account 
Books ; semi-private books containing entries of private as well as 
public transactions ; and books of a strictly private character which 
were kept by some of the Treasury Clerks who acted as agents. These 
books were left in the Treasury, and were transferred with the Public 
Records to this Office. 

The Treasury Records belong to a great department succeeded and, to 
some extent, represented, by the office of the Paymaster of the Civil 
Service, Dublin Castle. They contain a complete and detailed account 
of every transaction connected with the Irish Treasury from 1545 to 1837. 
They supply in a classified and accessible form the strength of the Civil 
and Military establishments, the names of the principal officials thereof, 
with their pay salary and allowance, and the names of such persons as 
have received any sums of money from the Irish Treasury through the 
Royal Bounty or for exceptional services. Classified accounts of the 
various sources of revenue and the sums received therefrom are also 
furnished. 

The yearly increase of revenue and expenditure may be seen : at first 
the expenditure is met by the receipts, and as both increase the expen- 
diture has a constant tendency to exceed the receipts. This tendency 
was met for a time by money received in aid of taxation from Annuities, 
Loans, and Lotteries ; but, when the expenditure greatly exceeded the 
revenue, a Xational Debt was eventually established. 

As Account Books they cannot materially differ from those of any 
2;reat Accounting Department. To explain the systems adopted for 
receipt, payment, check, audit, and management, a brief sketch of the 
Irish Treasury and the r)rincipal changes in the mode of keeping the 
Public Accounts is supplied. 

The Irish Treasury. 

Previous to the end of the year 1793 this department was nominally 
vested in a Lord Treasurer, but the business was really conducted by the 
Vice-Treasurer, who was also styled Receiver-General, Paymaster- 
General, and Treasurer at War. The Lord High Treasurer nominally 
was the chief .Tuds;e in the Equity side of the Court of Exchequer, and 
by the Act 10 Hen. VII., c. 1, like power was conferred on the Treasurer 
of Ireland, as on the Treasurer of England, to appoint revenue officers ; 
and he was directed to account yearly before the Barons of the Exchequer 
and such of the King's CoTincil as should be appointed by the Lord 
Lieutenant, and the declaration thereof was to be certified into England. 

Notwithstanding this enactment the functions of the Treasurer were 
very limited. The Vice-Treasurer, in the sixteenth century, got the 
most ample power with regard to the receipt and payment of public 
money ; and the j^rincipal revenue officers were appointed by the Lords 
Lieutenant under their own Warrants. After 1793 the office of Treasurer 
was granted to Commissioners who held office until 1817, when the 
Treasuries in Ireland and England were united. 



28 APPENDIX TO TlJIRTV-THIRl) REPORT OF THE DEPUTY 



The Vice-Treasurer was primarily the proper officer, on receipt of the 
necessary warrants, to make all payments on the Civil and Military 
Lists ; lie was also the proper person to receive payments into the 
Treasury and issue Acquittances. Associated with him in keeping the 
Public Accounts were the Auditor-General, the Clerk of the Pells, and 
the Chamberlains; while the Teller of the Exchequer was his executive 
officer. The Vice-Treasurer was responsible for the receipt, issue and 
management of the public revenue, and was liable to account for the 
same. Under proper Warrants and authority he made the payments 
authorised by the Civil and Military Lists, and the varioiis payments 
under the heads of Cnncordatum, and Appropriated Duties. He, or 
his Deputy, received all monies payable into the Exchequer and gave 
acquittances for same, and he was bound to pass his accounts before 
the Commissioners of Treasury Accounts and the Auditor-General. The 
Teller or Cashier acting under his orders received the monies and pre- 
pared the Acquittances. He also made paj-ments of public money on 
authority of Debentures or Orders from the Treasurer or Vice-Treasurer 
prepared by the Auditor-General. 

The office of Vice-Treasurer was abolished in the end of 1793 and 
Commissioners were appointed to execute the office of Treasurer and to 
carry on the duties hitherto performed by the Vice-Treasurer. 

A Receiver-General and Paymaster-General was appointed subordinate 
to this Board, and with a view to perform under its directions the duties 
previously performed by the Vice-Treasurer. The Commissioners 
adopted as far as possible the methods of the English Treasury, and on 
the 31st December, three days after they had been sworn as Com- 
missioners, they ordered the Commissioners of Revenue, the Postmaster- 
General, and the Commissioners of Stamp Duties to furnish weekly 
abstracts of the receipts, issues, and remains in their several depart- 
ments. Instructions were also issued to the Auditor-General, Teller, 
and Clerk of the Pells ; but as the whole system was changed the 
following year it is not necessary to go into details. 

The Act 35 Geo. III., c. 28, which received the royal assent on 5th 
June, 1795, regulated the receipts and issues of the Treasury, but the 
Act practically embodied the regulations made by the Treasury Board 
on the 26th February, 1795, and the new system was really in existence 
from that date. 

The office of Receiver-General and Paymaster-General was abolished, 
and future vacancies in the offices of the first and second Chamberlains 
were not to be filled up. The Teller of the Exchequer became a most 
important officer in the new system. 

A Receiver-General was appointed to receive all duties, aids, revenues 
and taxes collected and levied by the Commissioners of Customs and 
Excise, and he was to pay to the Teller, every week, all monies received 
by him on the previous week ; and, for the purpose of issue, receipt, 
and keeping reliable accounts thereof, the Aiiditor-General and Clerk of 
the Pells were associated with the Teller, and their duties are sketched 
below under the headings " Issue of Money," " Receipt of Money," and 
" Accounts and Check." 

This arrangement continued without any serious modification except 
the introduction of the system of making all receipts and payments 
through the Bank of Ireland until 1817, when the Irish Treasury with 
all its incidents was merced in the Treasury of the L'nited Kingdom. 
The powers of the Lords Commissioners of the Irish Treasury were then 
vested in the Lords Commissioners of the Treasuiy of the United 
Kingdom, and a Vice-Treasurer was arjain appointed to transact the 
revenue matters of Ireland in accordance with their directions. Tho 
Auditor-General and Clerk of the Pells wore associated with the Vice- 
Treasurer in keeping the public Accounts until the abolition of their 
offices in 1822. From 1822 to 1837 tlie Vic-Treasurer, under instruc- 
tions from the Lords of the Imperial Tn.'asury, executed everything 
necessary for the issue, receipt and pa\-ment of the public money for 
civil and military purposes ; but in the 3-ear 1837 the Irisli Treasury 
offices were abolisliod. and the Irish revenue b^-came an integral part of. 
and subject to the same regulations as. the other revenue of the United 
Kingdom. 



KEEPER OF THE PITBLK; RECORDS IN IRELAND. 29 



Issue of Money. 

Previous to the end of 1793 payments on the Civil List were made on 
Debentures prepared and signed by the Auditor-General pursuant to the 
establishment letter, a copy of which was lodged with the Vice-Treasurer. 
Payments on the Military List were made on Warrants prepared by 
the Commissary-General of Musters signed by the Lord Lieutenant, and 
countersigned by the Commissary-(ieneral. 

Payments on Concordatum were made on Warrants from the Privy 
Council: they were not to exceed a certain amount, and were limited to 
special purposes. Payments of Api)ropriated Duties were made on 
Warrants from the Linen Board, or other parties entitled to receive 
them, and did not require a Government Warrant. 

The Civil and Military Lists were the authority for all ordinary 
payments out of the Treasury. The Vice-Treasurer had no power to 
make payments not included therein without proper Warrants authorised 
or sanctioned by a King's letter. No Debentures or Warrants except 
those on Appropriated Duties were to be paid without being entered 
with and countersigned by the Clerk of the Pells. 

Important constitutional changes were made in the year 1793. The 
King having surrendered his ancient power over the Hereditary Kevenue 
the Act 33 Geo. III., c. 34, reciting this, enacted that a Consolidated 
Fund should be formed from the Hereditary Revenue and aU Additional 
Duties, not appropriated ; and in consideration of the surrender, it was 
enacted that a sum of £145,000 should yearly be paid thereout to meet 
the salaries and charges on His Majesty's Civil List, and a further sum 
to satisfy the Pension List. 

Parliament for the first time got complete control over the finances 
of the country, and after March, 1794. supplies were voted by the Annual 
Appropriation Bill. To complete the change a Treasury Board was 
appointed, whoUy responsible to the Irish Parliament. 

The Board was authorised by the first Appropriation Act (34 Geo. III., 
c. 4) to make certain payments, and receive certain monies specified 
therein ; and to issue the sum granted to His Majesty to meet the 
military and other services of the year as appropriated and allocated in 
the Act. While the Act was the ultimate authority for the pajrments, 
the immediate authority for the issue was two King^s letters sent yearly 
when the Appropriation Bill was passed,' one authorising the Civil, and 
the other the Military payments, specified in the Act. 

The Commissioners forming the Treasury Board were appointed at the 
end of 17S3, and regulated their process of issue according to the English 
method. They sent their orders to the Auditor-General who, having 
examined and registered them, sent on the orders for payment to the 
Teller. When the payment was made the Teller registered the order 
witli the Clerk of the Pells. 

A new system Avas started in February, 1795, which was established by 
Parliament in tlie following .June, and thenceforth pa3Tnents were made 
by the Teller as execTitive officer of the new Treasury Board. 

The Commissioners were not to issue any money without the authority 
required in the Act; and the Bank of Ireland was to see that every draft 
from the Teller showed the particular service for which the same was 
drawn. 

The Auditor-General having received Warrants from the Treasury 
Board prepared Debentures or Orders as his Warrants directed. In the 
case of orders, he submitted to the Treasury for signature a formal order 
for payment, and this was returned v.^hen the Board wished it to be paid. 
The amount and the fund for payment were then specified by the 
Auditor-General, and, after the order had been examined by the Clerk 
of the Pells, and had been perfected by the addition of his " examinatur 
et rpcordatur," it was pent to the Teller. 

If tlie orr^er was p^id in fuM if ■pa'naiiQrl wifTi the TeH'^'' f*" V'-; 
vnrcher, otherwise it was returned to the Auditor-General with a note 
of the part payment endorsed thereon. 



30 APPKNDIX TO THIRTY-THIRD REPORT OF THE DEPUTY 



This system continued until 1814, when new regulations were framed 
with the view of abolishing receipts and payments at the counter of the 
Exchequer, and causing them to be made through the Bank of Ireland: 
for every payment of public money the Teller issued his draft on the 
Bank of Ireland specifying the particular head of the service for which 
the payment was made, and every such draft was recorded in the office 
of the Clerk of the PeUs and countersigned by him. 

Money issued from the Treasury to Public Accountants in the 
neighbourhood of Dublin was obtained by drafts from the Teller on the 
Bank of Ireland in favour of the Accountants, and all such drafts were 
countersigned by the Clerk of the PeUs. This and all other money 
received by Public Accountants was lodged immediately in Bank to 
their account, and they drew upon it for the several services comprised 
in their offices and duty, specifying the nature of the service and the 
particular head to which the sum mentioned was to be applied. Sums 
deducted for Pells, Poundage and Treasury Fees were to be carried to 
the credit of the public by the Auditor-General and Clerk of the Pells 
every week in the account of the Consolidated Fund of Ireland. Hospital 
Fees were treated in the same way, and subsequently applied to Kil- 
mainham Hospital. 

This continued until 1817, when the Irish Exchequer became merged 
in that of the United Kingdom, the Irish Treasuiy Board was abolished, 
and a Yice-Treasurer again appointed. 

After 1817 money was issued on Warrants from the Lord Lieutenant 
to the Vice-Treasurer, by whom they were countersigned ; and they were 
entered and marked by a person authorized by him. The Auditor- 
General on receipt of notice that such formalities had been complied 
with issued his order for payment on the Teller of the Exchequer, and 
the Warrant so dealt with was authority to him therefor. Irish Issues 
were recorded in the British Exchequer in order that the annual grants- 
of Parliament should not be exceeded : for current services they were 
made from the growing produce of the Consolidated Fund in Ireland, 
in each quarter, and the Vice-Treasurer transmitted an account of such 
issues to the Lords of the Treasury, who issued their Warrant for repay- 
ing same to the Consolidated Fund. 

After 10th October, 1822, the offices of the Auditor-General and Clerk 
of the Pells were abolished, and their functions devolved on' the Vice- 
Treasurer. Under the new system Issues were divided into three kinds : — 

1st. Permanent Charges on the Consolidated Fund. 

2nd. Military Establisliment annually provided for by Parliament. 

3rd. Civil ,, „ „ ,, ,, ,, 

The permanent charges on the Consolidated Fund consisted of Interest 
and Annuities chargeo. on the Public Funded Debt, the Sinking Fund-, 
and the Civil List. The amounts of the two former having been calcu- 
lated by the Loan Clerk and the Commissioners for reducing the National 
Debt, respectively, they were certified to the Lord Lieutenant by the 
Vice-Treasurer, and when His Excellency issued his Warrant to the Vice- 
Treasurer the latter issued liis order on the Teller to pay the same. 

The Vice-Treasurer had the distribution and record of the Civil List 
in his possession : prior to each quarter day lie certified the charges- 
of the establishment thereon to His Excellency and the money wn,s issued 
as before — the Finance Accounts of the Civil List were kept yearly, 
the year ending on the 5th January. Charges under the authority of 
Acts of Parliament for salaries or fixed allowances were certified and 
issued as in the case of the Civil List, but for incidental expenses or 
disbursements application should be made to the Lord Lieutenant for 
his Warrant to the Vice-Treasurer to issue an order for payment on the 
TeUer. 

Advances from the Consolidated Fund by way of loan were made on 
Warrants originating with the Lord Lieutenant addressed to the Vice- 
Treasurer, who issued his order on the Teller to pay the same. The 
Teller's draft on the Bank of Ireland was countersigned by the Vice- 
Treasurer or his Deputy. The Teller deducted from saLaries,' aUowances, 



gfiEPEii OF THE PUBLIC RECORDS IN IRELAND. 3 1 

and pensions, such deductions as were previously made in the Office of 
the Tells and Auditor-General, subdividing them into Poundage, Pells, 
Hospital, and Treasury Fees, and transferring them to the credit of the 
Consolidated Fund. 

With reference to the Military Establishment, the regimental Agents 
monthly, or as often as necessary, applied to the Secretary at War for 
tlie sums necessary for subsistence and the allowance to their regiments. 
The Secretary at AVar, having all the materials for that purpose, trans- 
mitted to the Vice-Treasurer a statement of the amounts payable to 
individuals and the sums necessary for the subsistence and payment of 
the land forces, and directed him to i)ay the proper amounts to the 
regimental agents. On receipt of the statement from the Secretary at 
War the Vice-Treasurer moved the Lord Lieutenant for his Warrant 
directing issues from the Bank of Ireland, and His Excellency directed 
that sufficient sums should be placed to the credit of the Vice-Treasurer 
as Paj-master of the Military Establishment in Ireland. The Vice- 
Treasurer, by drafts on the Bank of Ireland, then paid the army agents 
and several individuals the respective sums authorised, taking their 
receipts for same and deducting fees as before, which, at the close of 
each quarter, were transferred at the Bank to credit of the Consolidated 
Fund. 

Money was issued to the Barrack, Commissariat, and Ordnance Depart- 
ments, under Warrants from their respective Boards addressed to the 
Vice-Treasurer, who then directed the Teller to transfer such sums from 
his account in the Bank of Ireland to the credit of the respective Boards, 
and each Board made its own pajrments. 

Army Extraordinaries arising out of emergencies were issued in the 
usual way on the Warrant of the Lord Lieutenant addressed to the 
Vice-Treasurer : copies of these Warrants were immediately transmitted 
to the Treasury and Secretary at War for sanction, and such sanction 
was annexed to the Lord Lieutenant's Warrant. 

After the 24th December, 1822, the Secretary at War executed the 
duties previously performed by the Commissioners of Military Accounts 
and the Muster Master-General, but the establishment of military 
accounts continued until 5th January, 1824, in order to clear aw9.y the 
arrears of accounts. 

With reference to Parliamentary Grants for the Civil Service, issues 
were made to Public Boards, Hospitals, Schools, miscellaneous services 
and civil contingencies, in the usual way, on Warrants from the Lord 
Lieutenant addressed to the Vice-Treasurer. 

Every order from the Vice-Treasurer to the Teller was accompanied 
by the Warrant or authority on which it was made ; the Teller entered 
thereon the number and amount of his draft on the Bank, and the draft 
required the counter-signature of the Vice-Treasurer. The Teller retained 
the Vice-Treasurer's order as his voucher ; but returned the original 
VVarrant or authority on which the order was made. 

This system entirely ceased in 1837, the Exchequer offices in Ireland 
Wore practically abolished, the revenue of Ireland became an integral 
Jortion of that of the United Kingdom subject to the regulations of the 
[iords of the Treasury,, and Issues were made on Warrants from tho 
Lords of the Treasury addressed to the Comptroller of the Exchequer. 
^ Paymaster of Civil Services in Ireland was appointed for making

The public revenue of Ireland consisted of — 

I. Hereditary Revenue, 
TI. Additional Duties, 
III. Appropriated Duties ; 



32 APPENDIX TO THIRTY-THIRD REPORT OF THE DEPUTY 



but, with reference to the manner in which receipts were made and 
recorded, there was no difference between these classes of revenue. 

Previous to 1794 they were received from the Collectors by the Vice- 
Treasurer, and he or his Deputy gave an acquittance which was entered 
by the Clerk of the Pells, the Chamberlains, and the Accountant- 
General ; the acquittance was the discharge to the party making the 
payment. The monry was recei\'ed through the Cashier or Teller, who 
was a subordinate officer. 

In 1794 the Teller became the executive officer of the new Treasury 
Board. He received no money without issuing a clieque receipt for it 
This receipt was made out by the officer of the Auditor- General attending 
in his office, and was signed by him ami witnessed by such officer and by 
the officer of the Clerk of tlie i\-lls. The Cka-k of the Pells recorded 
the receipts, and was directed to furnish to the Auditor-General a daily 
account of the receipts into the Treasury. 

There was a period of transition from January, 1794, to March, 1795, 
during which the Receiver-General and Paymaster-General, under direc- 
tions from the Treasury Board, transacted business very much in the 
manner of the former Vice-Treasurers. In February, 1795, however, 
new regulations were made and instructions issued to the Receiver- 
General and Paymaster-General, Teller, Auditor, and Clerk of the Pells, 

This system was established hj law in June, 1795, when the post of 
Receiver-General and Pajrmaster-General was abolished, and a new officer 
entitled Receiver-General was appointed. 

The Receiver-General received all duties, aids, revenues, and taxes 
collected by and levied under the authority of the Commissioners of 
Customs and Excise ; and he paid weekly to the Teller of the Exchequer 
all monies received by him during the previous week, distinguishing 
under their proper heads the various receipts according to the Accountant- 
General's Abstracts. 

The Teller was to give to him indented receipts for every such payment, 
which were to be recorded in the offices of the Auditor-General and Clerk 
of the Pells, and countersigned by both. Daily and weekly returns of 
receipts were to be sent by the Receiver-General to the Auditor-General, 
who was directed to record every receipt countersigned by him. A 
similar record was made by the Clerk of the Pells. Both were to 
examine weekly the Teller's accounts and issue certificates to the Lord 
Lieutenant and the Treasury Commissioners concerning the receipts, 
issues and remains. Half-yearly certificates were to be issued in like 
manner ; and quarterly, half-yearly and yearly accounts, were to be sent 
by the Auditor (after having been approved of by him and them) to 
the Accountant-General. 

The Accountant-General was directed to send weekly to the Lord 
Lieutenant and Treasury an abstract of the receipts, payments and 
balances, of the different revenue collectors ; and similar abstracts were 
to be sent by the treasurers of the Board of Works and Barracks, 
Ordnance, Receiver-General of Stamps, and treasurer to the Post Office. 

This system practically continued \mtil the year 1814, when, instead 
of paying the sums received by him directly into the hands of the Teller, 
the Receiver-General paid them into the Bank of Ireland to the Teller's 
credit, and, on presenting the certificate received by him from the Bank, 
the Teller gave him an acquittance for the sum contained in the certi- 
ficate : every such receipt or acquittance specified particulars, and was 
recorded and countersigned in the offices of the Auditor-General and 
Clerk of the Pells, as before. JMoney could only be received into the 
Exchequer in this way, and no acquittance could be valid except for 
money so received. 

After 1822 it was again ordered that payments into the Exchequer, no 
matter of what kind, should be made into the Bank of Ireland to the 
credit of the Teller. The Cashier of the Bank gave a receipt to the 
party making the payment and debited the Bank for the amount in the 
Teller's account. The party then brought the receipt to the Teller, who 
prepared an Exchequer receipt, and it was not a complete acquittance 
to the party until countersigned by the Vice-Treasurer or his Deputy. 



KEEPER OF THE PtJBLIC RECORDS IN IRELAND. 33 



Everj^ Exchequer receipt stated the amount and the account for which 
I - ._„c^ it was paid, was entered in the office of the Vice-Treasurer, and charged 
I '-■"^^K against the Teller. The account of the Bank for each week was furnished 

to the Vice-Treasurer. 
This system of receipt practically continued until the abolition of the 

office of A'ice-Treasurer in 1837. 



Accounts and Check. 

' From the reign of Henry VIII. Commissioners were appointed from 

J" "■ time to time by King's letter to examine and check the Accounts of the 

_: ,-, Vice-Treasurer, Board of Ordnance, and other great accounting Depart- 

'^^r ments. The rolls of Finance Accounts as passed by these Commissioners, 

'f^^ engrossed on parchment, extend from 1545 to 1822. The beginning of 

??ga every account recites the Commission, and there is a certificate at the end 

- ,X signed by the Commissioners. 

- :- Previous to 1760 the Vice-Treasurer kept annual accounts as a rule, 
i*^. but from thence to 1794 he prepared and submitted to the Commissioners 
■f;'^,; of Treasury Accounts, quarterly accounts of his receipts, issues, and 
::^J^ the balance in his hand, together with the vouchers in support of same. 
liii/ The Commissioners, under their patents, were appointed to call for and 
|*k7 examine these accounts, and, on being satisfied therewith, they signed 
& them ; but, before the accounts were fidly discharged, they were liable 
/.ft" to be reviewed by the Treasurer or Commissioners of the Treasury of 
V'*:; Great Britain. Other accounts, such as those of the Board of Ordnance, 

T: t:;; Board of Works, and money advanced by Government by way of Imprest 
^^^ were formerly dealt with by the Commissioners of Treasury Accounts, 
^■*yf" but, at this period, the latter were subject to the Commissioners of 

- ^5 Imprests and Foreign Accounts. 

~^'^^ The Vice-Treasurer's accounts were first passed before the Auditor- 

v-^tJJ General, and then before the Commissioners ; his receipts were 

-; A.I entered with the Clerk of the Pells, the Chamberlains, and the 

f-.=;' Accountant-General ; his payments were entered with the Clerk of the 

., jte PeUs. The Vice-Treasurer delivered to the Auditor and Commissioners 

■ "JvC transcripts of his receipts, and similar transcripts were furnished by 

' 7?,^. the Clerk of the Pells and the Chamberlains ; and, when these were com- 

rif;^^ pared, they were a complete check on the accuracy of the Vice-Treasurer's 

'^^'' transcripts, and showed whether he was fully charged with all monies 

-SM^ received by him during the period of the account. The Vice-Treasurer 

^40^ also gave the Auditor-General a fair transcript of all his payments under 

f-4«s= the several heads of the establishment, with vouchers therefor, and a 

,-£ like account was given by the C.erk of the Pells ; and when examined by 

:.-4^K the Auditor-General and engrossed on parcliment, it was brought with 

-?#■ the vouchers to the Commissioners of Accounts, who examined and 

~'^& signed it. This account remained with the Auditor-General, but a 

^: ^ duplicate was given to the Vice-Treasurer as his "quietus est." The 

■.' checks on the Vice-Treasurer's Accounts were thus quite complete ; the 

.;< bocks of the Clerk of the Pells and the Chamberlains were a check on 

V. his receipts, and not oulj was he obliged to furnish vouchers for his 

£ payments, but the Clerk of the Pells had an independent account of them. 

.;,^^ -furthermore, the authorities for his payments were in the hands of the 

;!§^5: -A-uditor-General and Commissioners of Accounts, and any payment made 

HJ-Sl^ithout proper authority was disallowed. 

-/-p^w; From 1794 under the newly appointed Treasury Board this system 
>:^ Seems to have been maintained and continued until 1817, when the Irish 
?'% Treasury was merged in the Imperial Treasury. Thenceforward the Vice- 
-.^~i^ Treasurer was ordered to furnish an account of all Warrants which passed 
i-i^ through his office during the year, and the same was laid before Parlia- 
. ;^ ^tient : like his predecessors, the Treasury Commissioners, he examined 
2^^''*iid signed th.e quarterly accounts of the receipts, issues, and remains of 
ri^ the Exchequer in Ireland, prepared by the Auditor, and transmitted 

'.lit ^

abstracts of the same to the Treasury Board. He also furnished to the 
Commissioners of tlie Treasury, every week, a comparative view of tlie 
revenue paid into the Treasury, as formerly done by the Bevenue Clerk 
of the Irish Treasury Board. 

After the abolition of the Auditor-General's office, in 1822, aU the 
accounts previously kept by him were kept and furnished by the Vice- 
Treasurer : he was directed — 

(a) Weekly and quarterly to make an abstract of the receipts, 
issues, and remains in the Irish Treasury, to compare them witli the 
Teller, and to transmit copies thereof, pursuant to the Treasurj' 
minute of the 23rd May, 1822 ; 

(b) To prepare a quarterly account of the net produce of the 
Consolidated Jhind paid into the Exchequer in Ireland, and the 
permanent charge thereon ; 

(c) To prepare an account of sums issued out of the growing 
produce of the Consolidated Fund arising in Ireland, for the public 
service in Ireland ; 

(d) To furnish particulars of Imprest money repaid into the 
: Exchequer, and other monies received for the public ; same to be 

- transmitted within ten days after the expiration of each quarter ; 

. (e) To prepare a quarterly account of the funded debt in Ireland, 

with the annual charge thereon, which was to be transmitted to the 
Commissioners for redeeming the National Debt ; 

(/) As soon as possible after each year ending the 5th January, to 
. prepare and transmit to the Imperial Treasury, in triplicate, the 
following accounts, which were to be incorporated with the Finance 
Accounts of the United Kingdom : — 

(1) An account, with appendices, of all sums paid into the 

Exchequer in. Ireland on account of the public income ; 

(2) An account of the net produce of the Consolidated Fund paid 
' - into the Exchequer in Ireland, and the permanent charge 

thereon ; 

(3) An account of the public expenditure in Ireland, with appen- 

- . dices, and an account of the funded debt in Ireland, with 
.. : the annual charge thereon ; 

(4) An account of the unfunded debt in Ireland and the demands 

outstanding, with appendices ; 

(5) An account showing how the grants for the Service of the year 

had been disposed of; distinguishing the various payments 
into jaroper heads ; 

(6) Accounts relating to the Treasury Department in Ireland, 

ordered by either House of Parliament. ' 

He was also directed to take over from the Auditor-General and the Clerk 
of .the Pells aU the records and papers belonging to their departments. 

Appended is a classified account of the classes of books and records of 
the . Accounting Dep artments. 



ABSTRACTS. 

Abstracts were primarily kept to supply in a classified form com- 
pendious views of the receipts and payments into the Treasury ; but 
jafter 1741 their main object seems to have been to serve as a check on the 
Vice-Treasurer,

{^ 



ustoms, 1807--17.

CASH BOOKS. 

These are very important, and include four series — Counter Cash Book* 
Deputy Receiver-General's, Teller's, and Treasury Cash Books. 

Counter Cash Books, 1727-1837. — These seem to have served as actual" 
receipt books up to 1800, and tk.^y contain receipts and payments of every 
kind made by the Cashier in thr. Treasury, together with the signature of 
the recipients up to that date. ' 

The accounts are balanced weokly, and although tlie receipts and pay- 
ments sometimes differ from Llm i-Lceipts and pajmients in the Treasury 
Cash Books the weekly balances are always the same, for the reason stated 
in the paragrapli (ju the Treasury Cash Eo(;ks. 

The boi'ks are kept in eider of date, and the items are entered pro- 
miscuously. They only contain receipts and payments made by Teller, 
and the books were prepared by liis clerk. To understand the importance 
and character of these transactions see account of payments and receipt 
under raijmrnt and I'rcript Honks. Trrasiiri/. Some bcoks are missing. 



KEEPER OF THE PUBLIC RECORDS IN IRELA^'D. 37 



Deputy Beceivcr-GrneraVs Cash Books, 1779--1785.— These contain 
transactions of the Deputy lleceiver-Geiieral witli reference to Bills 
received from Revenue Collectors, Agency to Pensioners on the Civil and 
Militarj' Establishment, Arc. 

Teller's Cash Books, 1735-68, 1777--94.— At first the Teller would seem 
to have been a very subordinate officer witli very liiuitetl powers, prac- 
tically a mere Casliier. After 1794, while tiw Deputy Iw-ceiver-General 
was still nominally responsible, most of the duties practically devolved 
on the Teller, and thf entries of his receij^ts and payments appear in 
the Counter- Cash Bonk. 

These books extend from 1733 to 1768, and from 1777 to 1794, and 
contain his receipts and i^ayments. The Treasury was debited for his 
receipts and credited for his payments. 

There are some other transactions with which the Teller had no official 
concern, and the books seem to have been kept to show how he stood 
personally with reference to the Treasury and other Government accounts. 
.- 'Mir Treasury Cash Books, 1689-1795. — These contain entries of every 
receipt and pa;vTnent by the Treasury in respect of the public service and 
-' re^•enue. The accounts are kept weekly, and the balances are always the 
;^ same as in the Counter Cash Books. Several receipts and payments were 
"J^ made without the instrumentality of the Teller, but as receipts for such 
'""* purposes, e.g., forage, were immediately paid away, the weekly balance 

twas not affected. 
The accounts are classified, receipts and payments being entered under 
the proper heads of the accounts. They show the deductions for infir- 
mary, poundage, hospitals. Pells. The earlier books show whether a pay- 
ment was made by acquittance on a revenue collector or by cash at the 
Counter of the Exchequer. There is a column showing the page of ledger 
_ ^^^^^ in which the item is entered, and a corresponding column in ledger 
^^ shows the page of the cash book the entry was posted from. They cease 
"r^ in 1795, and, from that date, the ledgers refer to the page of the issue 
" payment books. The series is very valuable as furnishing a record of the 
receipts and payments. 

After 1757 there are two books for every year, each book containing the 
accounts for alternate weeks. Some books are missing at the beginning 
of the series, as well as those for the years 1757—8 and 1759-60.

' service in classified form, together with the public expenditure to be 
' ; incurred in respect of the same. They are copies of King's letters, which

General, and as he supplied a copy to the Vice-Treasurer, this set 
Tobably consists of such copies. This series is imperfect.

ECCLESIASTICAL REVENUE. 

The di'^solution of the monasteries in the time of Henry VIIT. furnished 
consiikrable revenue to him and his immediate successors. The chattels, 
lands and possessions of the monasteries were vested in the Crown, and 
provision was made for some of the reli2;ious. 

•' First fruits," or " annates," were also vested in Henry VIII. They 
are th.- first year's profit of every ecclesiastical benefice or promotion pay- 
able liy four instalments in two years. If default were made in the pay- 
iiniit "to the Clerk of First Fruits process issued as in case of Cro\vn lands. 

The fees payable on faculties or dispensations were included in sources 
of ecclesiastical revenues vested in Henry VIII. and his successors. The 
fees on faculties were apportioned between the Crown and the Dignitaries 
and officers employed in their collection. 

" Twentieth parts," being the twentieth part of every year's value of a 
benefice or preferment, were vested in the Crown in like manner as the 
First Fruits. 

The chattels of the monasteries were sold ; and the lands, pending their 
grant, were let on lease. 

A valuation of all benefices for the purpose of assessing the First 
Fruits and Twentieth Parts, was made by Commission 30 Hen. VIII. 
The record of this valuation is called " Valor beneficiorum." They yielded 
revenue until the Twentieth Parts were released to the incumbents by 
Queen Anne, confirmed by statute 2 Geo. I., c. 15 ; and the First Fruits 
by the same authorities were granted to trustees for the building of 
churches and purchase of glebes, and impropriations. 

In the Commonwealth period various ecclesiastical lands, rents and 
revenues were appropriated by the Government.

HANAPER OFFICE. 

Profits accrued to the Crown from the sums paid on sealing writs, 
Letters patent of lands or offices, pardons. Court of Wards and Liveries, 
and King's Lands. 

The Lord Chancellor for the time being from 5 James I., was entitled 
to a moiety of the receipts, and had power to order out of the other moiety, 
any disbursements he thought necessary for the use of the Chancery Court. 
The balance was paid into the Exchequer. 

In passing his account before the Co'mmissioners of Imprest Accounts 
th'fe Clerk of the Hanaper produced the Office entry book showing all 
receipts which he verified on oath. This was his charge. The discharge 
consisted of the Lord Chancellor's receipt for moiety, warrants for dis- 
bursements, and Exchequer acquittances for payments into the Treasury. 

Accounts, 1570-1711. — These are the audited engrossed accounts of the 
Hanaper Office, and give receipts, issues, and balances of the accounts. 
These entries are summaries of the receipts, &c. Full entries of receipts 
appear in the Receipt Rolls. 

Receipt Ttnlls, 1548-1718.— Tliese give full particulars of the receipts. 
From 1548 to 1568 these rolls have the accounts of receipts for First 
Fruits, Twentieth parts, and Subsidies. The roll for 1568-70 has 
Hanaper Accounts. Customs, and Subsidies. There is a Roll of M. 
1628, which gives the receipts of the Clerk of the Crown. King's Bench. 



HEARTH MONEY, POLL TAX, AND SUBSIDY ROLLS. 

Hearth Money was a tax of 2s. on every hearth and fire place, estab- 
lished by the Act 14 and 15 Car. II., c. 17, and payable at Lady Day 



KEEPEU OF THE PUBLIC RECORDS IN IRELAND. 45 

and Michaelmas by equal portions. The first portion was payable on 
Lady Day 1663, and it was to be collected in the different counties by the 

sheriffs. 

The persons liable to pay were to be entered in a list which was to be 
prepared by the Justices of the Peace, and lodged with the Clerk of the 
Peace ; and a duplicate thereof, signed by three Justices, was to be sent 
to the Exchequer. These lists are laiown as the Hearth Money Rolls. 

Returns of any increase or diminution of hearths were to be sent to the 
Exchequer as in case of the original return. 

By 17 & 18 Car. II., c. 18, the entire sum became payable on the 10th 
January, yearly. 

The rolls contain, according to counties, baronies, parishes, &c., the 
names of the inhabitants liable to the tax, and the amounts they were 
to pay. So far as the number of heartlis witli which each person is 
charged can be taken as an indication of wealth and rank, these lists are 
a valuable addition to local and family history. 

The Poll Tax with which the lists in this collection deals was estab- 
lished by the Act 7 Wm. III., c. 15, and was a duty of one shilling on 
every person, no matter of what age or sex. However, no person charge- 
able with one shilling only was obliged to pay for more than two children 
under the age of sixteen. 

The ^clergy, from archbishops to parsons, and the laity from dukes to 
gentlemen, otficials and traders, were liable to heavy amounts according 
to their degree. 

The Commissioners appointed for each county were to cause duplicates 
of the whole sums charged on every hundred, barony, ward, &c. (without 
naming the persons), ixnder the hands of tliree of them, to be delivered to 
the sheriff of the county, who was to transmit it to the Exchequer before 
20th Jan., 1695-6. These are the lists in this collection. 

Subsidies were grants made to the King from a very early date ; but, 
with the exception of Co. Armagh, Dublin City, and a few concerning 
all Ireland, the rolls preserved all relate to the period from 1662 to 1669. 
Subsidies, both lay and clerical, were granted by the Parliament which 
commenced to sit m Dublin on the 8th May, 1661. 

By the Act 14 and 15 Chas. II., c. 24, the clergy granted eight sub- 
sidies, at the rate in the Act, payable half-yearly, the first payment on 
Feb. 1661-2, and the last on Aug., 1669. There are no clerical subsidy 
rolls in this collection, but as the tax to be raised was very much like 
that of Twentieth parts the corresponding particulars can be found on 
looking at the Twentieth parts records. The lay subsidies are as 
follows : — 

A grant of eight subsidies, payable in 1662-3, must have been made at 
same time with the subsidy of the clergy, but the Act does not appear to 
have been preserved. By the Act 14 and 15 Chas. II., c. 6, four subsidies, 
payable quarterly, were voted to commence after the payment of the eight 
subsidies, that is to be payable in 1664. 

By the Act 14 and 15 Chas. II. , c. 7, eight subsidies were voted, payable 
half-yearly, the first payment on Midsummer, 1665, and the last on 
Christmas, 1668. Four subsidies granted in 1665 by the Act 17 and 18 
Chas. II., c. 1, were to be levied in addition to, in the same way, and at 
same times, as the previous eight stibsidies under 14 and 15 Chas. II., c. 7. 

These lay subsidies were to be levied olf temporalities, lands and goods. 
Commissioners were appointed to deliver detailed lists of persons taxed 
to the sheriffs, &c., who were to collect the subsidies, and they were to 
return gross amounts into the Exchequer as a check on the Collectors' 
uCLxunts. 



46 APPEi^DIX TO THIRTi'-THIKD REPORT OF THE DEPUTY 

The Commissioners, in obedience to writs from the Exchequer, returned 
copies of the lists supplied to the sheriffs, and these are the records now

ISSUE BOOKS. 

The particulars of applications for issues were first entered in a 
" Diary." After the orders or warrants for issues had been made they 
were entered in the Civil or Military Warrant books according to the 
branch they belonged to, and in the Memorandum Books, Issue Books 
Ledgers, &c. 

Diary of Applications, 1794-1817. — Applications for issues were 
entered promiscuously in a diary, in memorandum form, giving the 
date, number, applicant's name, matter of memorial, sum, order, and 
date. There are two series which overlap. 

-. X O • ^- M J ^r-^- .r,r.. r, J Civil, 1797-1800. 

1st Series — Civil and Military, 1794-7. \ Military 1797-1800 
2nd Series— Civil, Military, &c., 1799-1817. 
Issue Books, 1794-1835. — These contain, in the order in which pay- 
ments were actually made, abstracts of the orders on the Vice-Treasurer 
or Teller to make the payments. Their arrangement is somewhat com- 
plex — they are referred to by volume and page, or by page only, in the 
classes of ledgers corresponding to them. The portion 1823-36 is really a , 
continuation of the Journal of Issues, Pells Office, but being referred to J 
by the civil and military ledgers, the books are regarded as Issue Books., 
They are classified as follows : — 



Civil, Military, &c.,

District Yeomanry Corps, ... ... ... 1798-1805 

Issue Books (Civil), 1823-37. — The first two books of the series appear 
to be a continuation of the Civil, &c.. Issue Books above, ending at 1822: 
as the ledgers do not refer to these, but to Journals of issues which are 
classed as Issue Books above, they are not included in the General Issue 
Books. The remainder of this series, 1824-37, contains personal accounts 
in rough dictionary order, running through four quarters of each year in 
one folio, and giving name, date of order, amount, date of issue. 

Issue Books (Military), 1823-4. — These are a continuation of the Mili- 
tary Issue Books above, ending in 1822 : as the ledgers do not refer to 
them, but to the Journals of issues, as above, they are not included 
with the General Issue Books. 

Issue Books (Military, Paymaster-General) , 1823—36. — These give refer- 
ence to Paymaster's Ledger, 1823, the only one of its kind ; numbers of 
accounts in numerical Register of Accounts, 1833—6 ; account of Pay- 
master-General of the Forces, 1824-6, and Paymaster-General's Ledger of 
General and Staff Officers, &c., 1824-36. 

Journal of Issues, 1794-1822. — These entries in classified form give all 
payments made weekly in the Treasury. They extend from 1794 to 1822, 
and up to 1799 there are two books for alternate weeks, each year. They 
were kept in the PeUs Office, but, on the abolition of that Office in 1822, 
the series was continued in the Vice-Treasurer's Office as general issue 
books, and, as such, are referred to by the Civil and Military Ledger. 

Memorandum Books, 1802-17. — These give, in memorandum shape, the 
particulars of orders for issues, and contain name of party, account, sum, 
fund payable from, order of Lords of Treasury, date of issue, and number

of issue. The column " Order of Lords of Treasury" gives number of appli- 
cation and date of order as they appear in the diary of applications. The 
number and date of issue ap])ear in the warrant books. 

Numerical liegister, 1833--7. — This is a register of payments to land 
forces, militia, general officers, garrisons, &c.., and merely contains 
number of order and amount. See ]ss%k: Books {MiUtary, Faymaster- 
Grncral). 

Warrant Boohs. 1794--1822. — These give the particulars of the orders 
or warrants on which tlie pavJUL-nts were made. Thej' state in whose 
favour the order was made, account, net and gross amount, authority for 
issue, number, fund, signatures, and date of delivery to auditor. 

The number is the same as that in the Memorandum Books, and the 
authcrity column gives the particulars, date, &c., of warrant. They 
are classified as follows : — 



Civil, Military, Vote of 
-- Credit, &c., 1794--6 



( Civil, 1796--1807 1 Civil and Vote of 

< Vote of Credit, 1796--1807 ) Credit, 1808-20. 
( Military, 1796--1822. 




There is a rough book of Concordatum Warrants for 1796 among 
' Rough Books." 



LEDGERS. 

There are a great many classes of ledgers, and the information they 
supply is extensive and most important. 
^, District Yeomanry Corps, 1797--1802. — Separate ledgers were kept for 
II the various district yeomanry corps during period of these ledgers, and 
Sr they refer to the Issue Book authorising the payments therein. 
t Grants and Issues, 1804--37. — These give classified accounts, civil and. 
military, of all issues from the Treasury, under the heads under which 
f they ought to be accounted for. An account is opened for every grant ; on 
5^ the Dr. side appear the payments posted from the day books, and on the 
■C Cr. side the amount of the grant. They thus show the amount of a grant 
^- unissued without having to refer to the Auditor-General. 
"^~. Some of the details are very meagre ; for example, one order may con- 
5 tain the entire amount for salaries on Civil List for one quarter. From 
?-v 1802-22 they have a column referring to Warrant Book for authority for 
If payment. 

Pay, Salarii, and Allowance, 1804-16. — These books were kept in the 
Treasury, and contain personal accounts of the principal officers, whose 
^ accounts are also given in the Military (and Civil Grants) Ledgers up to 
|r^. 1822 ; and the series is continued as Grant Ledger, Paymaster-General's 
Office. The items are entered in a confused form, but the date of pay- 
ment, amount, and title of account are given. 
.^__ Faymaster-GeneraV s Office. — There were three kinds of ledgers kept in 
'4f-. the Paymaster-General's Office, viz. : — 

:r#^- 1st. General and Staff Officers, Garrisons, dec, 1823-36. — These 

:.L;. books have columns referring to number in numerical register of 
:i-:.>>. accounts and page of Military- (Paymaster-General) Issue Book. 

• 2nd. Grant Ledger. — These contain personal accounts which were 

:^i^-= kept in the Pay, Salary and Allowance, and Military Ledgers, pre- 
::3s,. vious to 1823, when the Civil and Military Ledgers were amalga- 
.■^^. mated. Personal accounts, instead of being kept in the amalga- 
mated ledger, as formerly, were now kept in this series. They give 
date of payment, number of warrant, and reference to Paymaster's 
Military Issue Book. They extend from 1823 to 1836. 

3rd. raymastcr-Genrral's, 1823. — This gives the account of the 
Secretary-at-War with the Vice-Treasurer, who was Paymaster- 
General of the forces. On the Dr. side appear payments by the 
Bank of Ireland for military purposes, and on the Cr. side warrants 
from the Lord Lieutenant to the "Teller.

50 APPENDIX TO THIRTY-THIRD REPORT OF THE DEPUTY 

Begimental Ledger, 1823-36. — These contain, on the Dr. side, date of 
pajinent, number of warrant, service, reference to Paymaster's military 
issue book, and the amount. On the Cr. side appear net expenditure, 
together with any sums repaid by army agents pursuant to the clearing 
warrants of the Secretary-at-War. 

The accounts were kept for the army agents in respect of individual 
regiments, and they extend from 1823 to 1836. 

Treasury Ledgers, 1693-1836. — These volumes are sometimes stjded 
•Treasury Ledgers and sometimes Exchequer Ledgers. Up to 1729 they 
contain in classified form accounts of all receipts and payments made in 
the Treasury on the Civil and JMilitary Establishments, Concordatum, 
.and for secret or exceptional services ; but from that date they only give 
-the payments. 

The books are most valuable, furnishing an account of the salaries 
attached to the various departments, together with the names and rank 
of the principal officials. The series, except the early portion, is com- 
plete. There is a column referring to the page of Treasury Cash Book 
for original entry of payment. After Issue Books were started the refer- 
ence is made to them and not to the Cash Books. 

In some years, when accounts were very large, other ledgers, which are 
really portions of these ledgers, were kept. These are Consolidated Fund, 
District Corps, Paymaster-General's, and Vote of Credit Ledgers. 

To explain the nature of the entries more fully, I give a list of the 
ledger accounts for the year 1793. 

Exchequer, King's Bench, Chancery, Common Pleas, 

• State Officers, Incidents, Custom Officers, Perpe- 
tuities, Appeals, Nonconforming Ministers, Com- 
missioners and Overseers of Barracks, Admiralty, 
Commissioners of Imprest Accounts, Pensions, French

'Prizage, and Commissioners of Public Accounts, 
i The various sub-heads of the Loan Account, Linen 
Appropriated ; Manufacture, Lagan Navigation, Improving Dublin. 

Funds. I and Duncannon 1 ort. 

For other years the accounts would be different, and as a ruk' ihr 
accounts become more numerous for more recent years. 

• The accounts. Civil and Militarj', were kept in one series up t>') the 
year 1796, from this jjeriod to 1823 they were kept in two series, and 
from 1823 to 1836 the series is again united. Consolidated Fund, Dis- 
trict Corps, Payniaster-General's, and Vote of Credit Ledgers were als^ 
kept for certain periods. They are, practically, other sub-divisions of 
these Ledgers. 

With reference to Military Ledgers from- 1804 to 1811, they are 
entitled " Military and Civil Grants/' the first part of each volume serv- 
ing as a Military Ledger, while the latter contains the Annual Grants. 
■which are entered for this period in the Military instead of the Civil 
Ledger. They may be thus described: —

English affairs during the years 1787-8, probably procured to serve as 
a precedent. 



KEEPER OF THE PUT^LTC RECORDS IN IRELAND. 59 

jrd. Minutes of the Treasury Board, which was constituted in 1793 
to superintend and control the? public revenue and accounts. This impor- 
tant series extends from 1793 to 1817, and contains entries with reference 
to the receipt and issue of money ; accounts, reports, and returns by 
public departments ; everything relating to Loans, Lotteries, Bills, 
Fines, Seizures, &c. 



NATIONAL DEBT. 

The books dealing with this subject supply most important information 
towards explaining the development and history of the country. 

At first every country has to meet expenditure out of receipts. Both 
increase as the country progresses, but expenditure has a general ten- 
dency to exceed receipts, and thi& tendency has to be met by some system 
of borrowing in aid of the ordinary taxes. In order to meet expenses 
connected with war, or very useful and exceptional public works or 
outlay, it is considered better and more convenient to provide for such 
charges by borrowing, instead of raising excessive taxes to defray the 
whole charge at once. 

Pledging or farming portions of the public revenue, temporary Loans, 
Annuities and State Lotteries were resorted to as the means for raising 
money on the national credit ; but, when the public debt had thus con- 
siderably grown while the national credit had in no way deteriorated, it 
was found necessary to fund a portion of the debt, and a national debt of 
a more permanent character was established. 

Xot only do the books give full information concerning these loans of 
a permanent nature, but they contain full pax-ticulars of Treasury or 
Exchequer Bills, debentures, &c., issued under authority of votes of 
credit, &c., to meet demands for public money in anticipation of the 
taxes. 

They record the amounts of loans, rates of interest, terms given to 
borrowers, &c., and thus tell at a glance the state of the national credit. 
To the historian of special industries, or trade in general, they are of 
the utmost importance. The expenditure of every great event can be 
obtained from them in conjunction with the other account books. For 
example, in order to estimate the effect of the French Revolutionary 
wars and the disturbed state of the country which followed, these books 
will show that in the end of 1793 the total amount of the funded debt 
of Ireland was, in round numbers, £1,600,000, while at the close of 1816 
the funded debt of Ireland amounted to £100.700,000. in round numbers, 
of which £86,400.000 was funded in England, and £24,300.000 in Ireland. 

They show expenditure in connection with peace as well as war ; and 
the amounts borrowed to execute public works, whether by the Irish 
or the Imperial Parliament, are fully set out. 

They may be divided into — 

1st. Books concerning the debt. 

2nd. „ ,, Loans, &c., comprising it. 



1st. — National Debt Books. 

Account Booh. 1761-1817. — An account of the commencement, progress 
and amount of the National Debt of Ireland from 1761-1817, when the 
Irish debt was merged in that of England. It gives the nature of the 
different securities granted, and the interest paid ; an account of the 
Sinking Fund, and an annual abstract of Debt, Interest, and Sinking 
Fund. The abstract only runs from 1792 to 1817. 

Dphi and Brvrnue Account Book, 1760-99.— Account of the growth of 
the National Debt, debentures issued, when interest commenced, date of 
issue, and for what purpose. 

Like accounts are furnished with regard to Bank Annuities, Life 
A.nnuities, Long Annuities, Short. Annuities, and Treasury Bills. 



60 APPENDIX TO THIRTY-THIRD REPORT OF THE DEPUTY 
2nd. — National Debt, Loan, &c., Books. 
Bank Annuities. 

The Bank of Ireland in 1781 subscribed £600,000 on Loan Debentures 
at 4 per cent., subsequently converted into £600,000 Bank Stock at an 
annuity of £24,000, from Midsummer, 1783. The rate was raised to 
5 per cent, in 1797. in which year and in 1808 loans of £500,000 and 
£1,250,000 at 5 per cent, were made. A further loan of £500,000 at 4 
per cent, was made in 1821. The details of the payments of interest are 
to be found in the cash books, ledgers, &c. 



Life Annuity Books. 

Life Annuities were granted to subscribers pursuant to Acts passed in 
1773, 1775, 1777. 

Annuities amounting to £15,900 were granted under the Act of 1773 
to the various subscribers. 

Annuitants or their nominees were divided into three classes — First, 40 
years and upwards ; second, from 20 to 40 ; and third, under 20 years of 
age. 

The annuities were at the rate of 6 per cent, on sum subscribed, and 
were payable from Christmas, 1773. 

As the lives fell in, in each class, the survivors of that class shared the 
entire amount, until every member received an annuity equal to his 
original subscription. After this the annuities of dying members fell 
to the Government. 

Annuities to the amount of £10,500 were granted to subscribers under 
the Act of 1775 under similar conditions to the annuities of 1773, but, 
in this case, the amount set apart for each class was divided among the 
constantly diminishing members of the class until the last survivor 
received the entire amount payable yearly to his class. 

Annuities to the amount of £22,500 were granted under the Act of 
1777. It was intended to raise them at 6 per cent., as before, but as 
subscribers did not come in, the rate was increased to 7^. The other 
incidents are similar to those of 1775. 

It may be mentioned that the annuities commenced 7, 6, and 18 
months in the respective annuities before the time for the subscriptions 
had expired. 

In order to enable persons in Great Britain to subscribe without the 
inconvenience of getting remittances from Dublin, agents were appointed 
in London by the Lord Lieutenant to pay annuities there according to 
rate of money current in Ireland. 

Short Annuities and Long Annuities were granted to induce the public 
to subscribe to loans where additional inducement was required to secure 
subscribers when the price of Stock and the rate of interest were not con- ~<^ 
sidered sufficiently inviting. 

Lonrj Annuities were granted in connection with the great loans raised 
in England for imperial purposes during the French wars of 1798-1815, 
of which a portion was issued for Ireland. A certificate of the amount 
chargeable was received yearly, and the English Government was credited 
with that amount. There is no record of the annuitants in the account 
books of the Irish Treasury. 

Assignments, Eegistrr of. — There is a volume for annuities of 1773 
giving number of annuity, date and particulars of assignment. Like 
oarticulars for annuities of 1777 are to be found in the Subscribers' and 
Nominees' Register. 

Cash Books, 1800--1804. — These give inter alia the accounts of the 
clerk who manaced the annuity payments. 

Bay Books (Bough), 1786--95. — Account of payments in respect of life 
annuities. The proper entry books were filled up from this series. 



KEEPifiK Of 'J^HE PtJBLtC ItKCdRDS tN IRELAND. 61 

Journal, 1779-1806. — This contains the transactions between the Vice- 
Treasurer or Teller of the Irish Exchequer and the London agent of the 
Irish Government for the pajonent of annuities payable in London, and 
the expenses of management. 

Letter Book, 1777—1832. — Departmental correspondence concerning 
annuities. 

London Annuities, 1807-8. — Expenses of management. 

Nominee Books. — These give in dictionary order lists of the persons 
nominated by the subscribers to the different annuities, with their 
abodes, descriptions, and the sums subscribed, and also a collective view 
of the nominees of annuities that had " fallen " owing to death of 
nominee or forfeiture. 

Tliere are two volumes for each of the three annuities. In the case of 
1777 there is a volume giving deficiencies in description of subscribers or 
nominees. 

Nominee Books of Personal Appearance, 1797-1806, and 1812-30. — 
These give lists of nominees who appeared personally for payment at 
the Treasury Office. 

Beceipt Books. — These are very important as showing the amounts 
actually received and the persons who obtained the annuities. There are 
two classes of receipt books, one kept by the Treasury and the other by the 
Pells Department. In the Treasury books the annuities payable in 
Dublin and London are kept in the same volumes, but in the Pells 
Department separate books were kept.

and nominee, and where the annuity was to be payable. 

There are separate books for the annuities of 1773, 1775, and 1777, and 
there is an index. 

Subscription Payment Book. — There are volumes for 1773 and 1775 
giving names of subscribers and the particulars of the third, fourth and 
fifth payments of the instalments of the subscription. There is a similar 
volume giving third to sixth payments for 1777. 

Loan Books. 

The earliest loan charged on the Irish Exchequer, the record of which 
is preserved in the account books, was a sum of £33,050, at 10 per cent., 
advanced in 1692 by Sir Joseph Heme, Sir Stephen Evance, and Sir 
Wm. Scawen, of London, on security of the Quit and Crown rents. 

Separate books were not kept for the payments of interest and principal, 
but the entries concerning them are to be found in the general cash books 
and ledgers. The greater part of this loan was paid off in 1697. 

There are special loan books for subsequent loans ; but abstracts of the 
accounts are entered in the Treasury Ledger and principal account books. 
They give the names of those who subscribed money for general or special 
purposes, those who were repaid, and those who received interest in the 
meantime. The loans were issued by authority of Parliament on deben- 
tures, annuities, lotteries, Treasury Bills, &c. It is difficult to classify 
the books dealing with transactions which are extremely complicated. 



62 APPENDIX TO tHIRTY-THlili) REPORT OF THE DEPUTY 



They naturally separate into two periods, one starting from 1715, when' 
the second loan was issued, and ending in 1753, when the Irish public 
debt was practically paid off ; the other, commencing in 1759 and ending 
1817, when the Irish debt was merged in the debt of the United Kingdom. 

The financial arrangement in the seventh article of the Act of Union 
which became operative on 1st January, 1801, rendered Ireland liable 
to 2-17tlis of the public expenditure. Vast expenditure became necessary 
at this time in connection with the Napoleonic wars, and Great Brit-iin 
was found much more capable of standing the strain of war taxes than 
Ireland. Loans were necessary in both countries, but the Irish debt 
increased, in proportion, much more rapidly than the debt of Great 
Britain. Finally the Irish debt reached the point at which amalgama- 
tion became necessary, and in 1817 the Irish debt merged in that of the 
United Kingdom. 

In order to explain the nature of the books a short history of the 
loans is furnished down to the period when money began to be raised by 
lotteries. Treasury Bills, &c. 

A sum of £50,000 was raised for public defence by virtue of a resolu- 
tion of Parliament, 1715. The interest was 8 per cent, until 1724, and 
7 per cent, afterwards. 

The debt was increased by £150,000 in 1729, and it bore interest at 6 
per cent. ; a further increase of silUO,000 was made in 1731, and from this 
to 1741 the entire debt carried interest at the rate of 5 per cent. 

In 1741 a loan of £125,000 at 4 per cent, was sanctioned. It was also 
enacted that £125,000 of the old debt should be reduced by lot to 4 per 
cent., and that the residue, which then consisted of £100,000, should 
continue to bear interest at 5 per cent. 

A loan of £70,000, at 4 per cent., for the erection of batteries at Cork 
Harbour, was sanctioned in 1745, lout only £58,500 seems to have been 

In 1749, the two sums of £125,000 and £58,500, at 4 per cent., were stiU 
unpaid, and £70,000, portion of the £100,000 bearing interest at 5 per 
cent., was also unpaid. The Vice-Treasurer was directed to pay off 
the sum of £70,000 at 5 per cent, then due, after 25th ilarch, 1750, and 
out of the sum of £250,000 at 4 per cent, to pay off by lot a sum of 
£58,500. When these sums were paid off in 1750 the public debt con- 
sisted of £250,000 at 4 per cent., viz., £191,500 unpaid residue of the 
£250,000, and the £58,500 raised under loan for defence of Cork Harbour. 

In 1751, £235,000, a portion of the £250,000 at 4 per cent., was still 
unpaid, and a further sum of £2,500 had been raised for defence of Cork 
Harbour. The Vice-Treasurer was directed to pay off by lot out of the 
balance in his hands a sum of £120,000, and in 1752, when this amount 
had been paid off, the public debt consisted of £117,500 at 4 per cent. 

The entire debt, with the exception of outstanding arrears, seems to 
have been paid off in 1753. 

A loan of £150,000 at 4 per cent., subsequently raised to 5, for the 
defence of the kingdom, was sanctioned in 1759. A furtlier loan of 
£300,000 at same rate was sanctioned in 1761, but of this sum only 
£200,000 seems to have been raised. The debentures for this debt were 
called in to be cancelled and others issued in lieu thereof. A further 
loan of £400,000 at same rate was sanctioned, but of this sum only 
£300,000 seems to have b(;en raised. 

In 1763 the public debt cnnsitited of £650,000 at 5 per cent., and it 
was enacted that of this. £300.000 sliould continue to bear interest at 5 
per cent., and that £350,000, the residue chosen by lot, be reduced to 4 
per cent. A further loan of £100.000 at 4 per cent, was sanctioned, but 
no part of it seems to have been raised. 

The public debt, consisting of £600,000, partly at 4 and partly at 5 per 
cent., was consolidated in 1765, and the rate reduced to 4 per cent. A 
further loan of £100,000 at 4 per cent, was sanctioned, and debentures of 
£100 and £50 were issued to make up these sums. The new debentures 
were to commence and be numbered from the end of the previous deben- 
tures. 



KEEPER OF THE PUBLIC RECORDS l^ IRELAND. -63 

In 1767 the public debt amounted to £675,000 at 4 per cent., and a sum 
of £50.000 at Sg per cent, was raised under a loan for £100,000 sanc- 
tioned that year. 

In 1770, £625,000 residue of £675.000 at 4 per cent, and £30,000 at 
3^, remained unpaid, and a further loan of £100,000 at 4 per cent, was 
raised to increase the Military Establishment. 

The public debt amounted to £725.000 in 1771, portion being at 4 per 
cent., and the remainder at 3=^. A further loan of £200.000 at not 
more than 4 per cent, was raiseJ to increase the ililitary Establishment, 
and the Vice-Treasurer was directed whenever he had a balance of £30,000 
to pay off so much of the 4 per cent, debentures. 

The entire 3g per cent, debt was paid oS in 1773, and m the years 
1773. 1775, and 1777, authority was given to raise the respective sums 
of £255.000. £175,000, and £166.000, by granting the annuities described 
under Annuity Books. (See above, page 60.) 

In 1779 and subsequently, loans were raised by lotteries, Treasury Bills, 
&c.. &c. 

There is one loan book previous to 1730. From this period to 1756 
they mainly consist of two series of receipt books for loan interest. O 
belonged to the Clerk of the Pells ; the other belonged to the Vice- 
Treasurer, and was the counterpart of the books furnished by him to the 
Auditor-General. As the National Debt of Ireland ceased to exist in 
1753 the last books of the series only deal with arrears of interest and 
debentures which were then paid off. 

There are a few of the Vice-Treasurer's books for the loan of 1759, but 
they do not appear to have been kept for later loans. 

Abstract Book, 1731—88. — Abstract of sums raised by debentures, 
Treasury Bills, and annuities during period of book. 

Assignments, Begisters. — These volumes give particulars of the different

64 APPENDIX TO THIRTY-THlRlJ REPORT 01* THE DEPUTY 



The regular receipt books give number of debenture, subscriber's name 
state of interest, and signature of subscriber or nominee, together with L 
certificate from the Deputy-Clerk of the Pells. The rough payment books 
only contain entries of the names of the parties to whom interest wag 
paid, and the number of the debenture or bill. ^ 

Sometimes this arrangement is reversed, the signature of recipient and 
the certificate of the Deputy-Clerk of tlie Pells appearing in the booka 
which would othei-wise have been rough payment books. In such case the 
books containing signature and certificate are regarded as receipt booka, 
jind the others as rough payment books. 

There is one book for the period 1715-27 which gives an account for 
every subscriber or assignee to the loan of 1715. The particulars of assign, 
ments are also given. It is not strictly a receipt book, but as it is the 
earliest loan book it is classed with them. 

1st. Beceipt Books. — Various loans to 1753. 1715-1753. 

„ after 1759. 1760-1806. 
2nd. Bough Payment Books. — Some of these are rough books kept in 
the office temporarily, pending entries into regular account books, and 
they extend from 1769 to 1790. 

The others are like the regular receipt books except that they want 
signature of recipient and certificate of Deputy-Clerk of the Pells. They^, 
consist of — 

Sg and 4 per cent, loans and Short Annuities, ... 
Sg, 4 and 5 per cent, loans and Short Annuities, 
32 and 4 per cent, loans and Short Annuities, ... 
5 per cent, loans and Short Annuities, 
Beceipt Books (Appendices), 1750—91. — There is a 
receipt books which gives receipt for arrears of interest on debentures 
already paid off, as well as interest on debentures drawn to be paid off 
a future date.

Subscribers, Uegisters of, 1761-1785 and 1795. 

The receipt books give the names of subscribers and their assignees, but 
separate lists of subscribers were also kept. There is a special book giving 
the instalments of the loan of £400,000 subscribed by R. Shaw in 1795. 

Subscribers, Begisters of Debentures paid off, 1733-42. 

The appendix books to receipt books and the receipt books themselves 
show when interest ceased, and, therefore, indicate when debentures were 
paid off ; but for the above period regular registers were kept. 

Lottery Books. 

The only State lotteries in Ireland were in the years 1780-1, when 
debentures to the amount of £210,000 and £105,000, respectively, at 4 per 
cent., were issued to the fortunate subscribers. The interest was to 
continue until the debentures were paid off. 

The loan receipt books contain the receipts for this interest. The other 
books are : — 

Certificates, 1785-1804.— These give date of payment of lottery deben- 
ture, number of certificate, to whom paid, and amount. 
Beturn of Prizes Outstanding, 1834. 
Also see Bank and Loan Books. 



Treasury Bills. 

These were first issued under authority of the Act which sanctioned 
lottery loans (19 & 20 Geo. III., c. 2), and the amount under this Act 
was not to exceed £140,000 at 3d. per day per cent, interest. Other 
issues were made under subsequent Acts.

In 1784 the Government offered holders of Treasury Bills the option 
of exchanging their bills for 4 per cent, loan debentures, with a premium 
of 10 per cent. Bills to the amount of £15,250 were exchanged in this 
^•av, and the amount was thus transferred from the unfunded to the 
fuiiilcd debt.

pi'lilic money made in the Treasury, and these payment books contain,. 
I'liiler tlieir proper heads, entries of all payments on the civil and mili- 
I'lry establishments, and for exceptionjil services. Of these very few

PAYMENT AND RECEIPT BOOKS {Treasury). 

There are two great series of these books. One commences in 1654, and 
ends m liiZ'A ; tne other commences m 157'/ and ends in 173b. £oth 
series are detective, several books not being forthcoming, but they supple- 
ment each other, and, taken with the payment and receipt Itolls and 
Collectors' Accounts, give an almost unbroken resume oi the public 
accounts from 157? to 182;^, when the othce of Auditor-General was 
abolished. = 

Each book is divided into three divisions: — The fixst contains all the 
receipts into tiie Ireasury ; the second, ail the payments in respect of the 
Civil List, and a statement irom the l>eputy Itcceiver-General that the ^ 
balance of the receipts, alter the payments on the Civil List have bees. ~" 
made, is available towards pajinent of the Military List ; and the last 
contains all payments on the Jmlitary List. 

The payments are the same as those in the payment books of the Pells ^ 
Oflice ; one set of books signed by the Deputy Iteceiver-Ceneral was evi--' " 
dently prepared for the Auditor-General. Ine other set is a copy, and 
was always kept in the Treasury Othce. - 

These books give the payments of every kind in classified form, but 
the receipts are sometimes only given m the form of abstracts to show 
the charge on the Treasury. 

Down to March, 1794, tne payments mainly consisted of the Civil List, ^^ 
Military List, Extraordinaries, including Parliamentary payments antt^g 
payments on King's letters, and appropriated duties, and these payments 
were made from the funds realised from the hereditary revenue, addi- ■^. 
tional revenue, appropriated duties, and loans. 

After March, 1794, the Consolidated i'und "was formed from the here- 
ditary revenue, additional duties, and loans ; and Appropriated Duties 
were raised as before. The entire revenue of the country consisted, there*: 
fore, of Consolidated Fund and Appropriated Duties, and from thesft'' 
were paid the Civil List, pensions, tlie list for military purposes, and 
other payments as before. Appropriated Duties were always paid for the ^ 
purposes to which they had been appropriated. "^" 

In 1760 the entire revenue, consisting of Hereditary Revenue, Addi- 
tional Duties, Appropriated Eunds, ana Loans, comprised the following 
sub-heads, viz. : — Orainary revenue from the several collectors ; other 
revenue from the same collectors apin'opriated to Loan, Linen, Tillage, 
Cambric, Protestant ^^chcols, and Lagan Navigation ; Quit and Crown 
Rents, Casual iievenue, Dury on Wrought Plate, Poundage of Additional 
Duties, Dismissed Collectors, ^Military Repaj-nients, Subscription to 
Loan. 

In 1795 the entire revenue, consisting of the Consolidated Fund, and 
Appropriated Duties, comprised tlie following sub-heads, viz. : — Ordinaiy 
Revenue, Quit Rents. Casualties, .-itamps. Postage, Duties on Wrought 
Plate, Public Coal Yards, Wool Licences, Tax on Salaries, Poundage, 
Pells Fee, Loan and Bills, Lottery, Military Repayments ; and the ApprO" 
priated Funds v.-ere for Loan, Linen, Lagan Navigation, Improving 
Dublin, Irish Fisheries, and King's Inns. 




KEEPER OF THE PUBLIC RECORDS IN IRELAND.

In 1760 the payments on the Civil List are classed as Exchequer, King's 
Bench, Uhancery, Common i^eas, Sitate Ohicers, Incidents, Custom 
Uthcers, Perpetuities, Appeals, Jr'ensions, French Pensioners, Non-con- 
foriumg Ministers,- Concordatiun, Prizage, Commissioners ana Overseers 
of liarracks, Admiralty, Commissioners of Accounts, Linen, Cambric, 
i'rotcstant Schools, Printing tlie Journals, i^c, iioman Catliciic Academy. 

The Appropriated iunds include Loan, Lagan Navigation, Improving 
Publin, Liighchouse on the Isle of A-rran ; other Appropriation Accountb 
weru Linen, Irish Fisheries, Lighthouses round the coast, and King's 
Inns. 

in 1795 the heads of i^iyments were similar. 

PAYMENT AND IlECEIPT ROLLS. 

These Rolls properly commence in 1545, but with them are deposited 
twu roils of a similar nature — remnants of an older series. 

The oldest Boli, extending over the period T23-T24, Ed. I., 1295--6, 
contains an account of sums delivered out of the Exciiequer, and other 
sums paia for necessaiy expenses, it shows the fees paid to the Treasurer 
and other officers of the Exciiequer, and the othce expenses of the 
jilxchequer ; fees to the Lord Chancellor, J u&tices of the Bench, Keepers 
of Castles, &c. This and a similar "iioll for oO Ed. I. are printed at 
pages 124 and 166 of Volume L, Record Commissioners' Reports. 

ike second is a Counter-lioll giving the CliaiuLerlain's receipts, H45— 
T45, Ed. ill., 1369--71. 

ihe Payment and Receipt Rolls (proper) commence at 1545, and are 
the engrossed accounts passed before the Commissioners of Accounts, who 
sign them. They are practically copies of the payment and receipt books 
described immediately above. They cease in 1822. 

The Military Account Rolls practically only commence in 1623. There 
is a special military roll, 1575--9, and two military ledgers 1579-84, and 
1586-7. These give minute information concerning all military pay- 
ments and exceptional services, such as rewards for captures of reUeis, 
conveying letters, and other acts to facilitate Government. 

The absence of the other books and rolls is a great loss to Irish history. 

PELLS OFFICE. 

Precedents. — This volume extends from 1776 to 1798, and contains mis- 
cellaneous entries of forms for certificates, receipts and accounts fur- 
nished ; copies of various King's letters authorising issues of money,

Every receipt had to be entered with the Chamberlains and Clerk of 
the Pells, as well as the Vice-Treasurer, and these officers were a check 
on the Vice-Treasurer, who was responsible for the amounts entered by 
tliL'se officials. 

Books signed by the proper officer in each department were delivered 
to the Auditor-General to be compared with similar books from tha 
^'ice-Treasurer and the vouchers in his possession. 

The books are counterparts of one another, and contain under their 
proper heads the amount of revenue received ; to explain their scope see 
tlie list of the principal sources of revenue in the years 1760 and 1795, 
given at page 66. 

Copies of the books supplied to the Auditor-General were kept in the 
oflice of the Clerk of the Pells. 

Some few books, which belong to the Chamberlains or Clerk of the 
Pells, are included in the Vice-Treasurer's receipt books, as they are 
really counterparts, and previous to 1660 there are very few books for the 
Chamberlains and Clerk of the Pells.

REVENUE BOOKS. 
The nature and classes of the public revenue can be gathered by 
referring to the lists of receipts at page 71. The machinery for collect- 
ing it is described at page 70 (Collectors' Accounts). The principal and 
finished accounts are to be found in the payment and receipt books and 
rolls, cash books, &c., but the following books, which were subsidiary 
to these or kept for a special purpose, give much information. In 1804 
separate Commissioners for Excise and Customs were appointed, thus 
completing a difference which had previously existed in the collection 
of these classes of revenue. On this account Revenue Books will be 
flivided into Customs, Excise, and General Revenue Books. 

Customs. 

Bills, 1808-9.— Particulars of Bills received from the Collectors of 
Customs.

Approbations, 1800-6. — Approbations of His Excellency to memorials

Balances, 1795-1823. — AVeekly remains or balances. The weekly 
abstracts give thq receipts, issues and remains in the Treasury, the 
remains being the balances in i;he Teller's hands. This balance was 
distributed among the various branches of the Consolidated and Appro- 
priated Funds, and the books are really counterparts of the "remains" 
column of the we(4cly abstracts. -^ 

Bills, 1804-7. — the Receiver-General's returns of Bills from the 
Eevonue Districts. 

Also see Berenue, Cristnms, and Excise. 

Bills (Stamps), 1805—7. — Like returns in respect of Stamps. 

Casual Bevcnue, 1829-37. — Returns of the Casual Revenue. 

Collectors' Accounts, 1649-1822. 

A sketch of the heads of the Revenue dealt with by the Revenue CoU^ 
lectors in 1790—1 is given on pages 71-2 to explain the nature and scope : 
of their duties. Rouglily speaking, they embrace Quit and Crown Rente,- 
Customs, Excise, Seizures, Hearthmoney, &c. 

During the Commonwealth Ireland was divided into Revenue Pre- 
cincts and the Collectors accounted for the revenue received by them 
taking credit for salaries, expenses, and payments made on order. 

During the greater part of the reign of Charles II. the largest part .- 
of the Revenue was farmed at fixed sums, and the farmers having paid, 1 
when directed, any demands warranted by the Establisliments, sent in { 
their accounts and took credit for these. f 

Commissioners of Revenue were appointed in 1682, on the expiration ' 
of the farm of the Revenue. All Ireland was divided into Revenue dis- 
tricts. Collectors were appointed to levy the various branches of the 
Revenue, subject to the directions of the Commissioners of Revenue. 

The Collectors' accounts of receipts and payments (including salaries 
and expenses), with vouchers in support of same, were sent in quarterly, 
checked and audited, and deposited with the Auditor-General. Their- 
receipts, after deducting salaries, expenses, and monies paid on acquit- 
tance or by order, were paid into the Treasury. These accounts give, 
from quarter to quarter, a very good idea of the commerce and various 
industries in the country, subject to taxation, and the persons engaged 
thereat. In this way they indirectly furnish extensive material for 
family history, as they give the names of the various persons to whom' 
money was paid, &c. Every Collector acted as a Government banker, for,". 
at a time when banking was in its infancy, if the Government desired 
to make a payment to somebody living, say." near Ennis, Cork, or Dingle, 
it simply sent him a "receipt" on the" local Collector, who paid the i 
amount when the payer handed him the Treasury receipt dulv endorsed- 
The expense of coming to Dublin, or of sending money fii-st to Dublin and 
afterwards to the locality where it was to be "paid, was obviated in this 
wav. 

This receipt was called an " Acquittance." and could always be met 
by the Collector to whom it was issued, as the funds in the hands of tlic 
difforeut Collectors were always known from their returns. 

Military payments, bounties, &c., were very often paid in this way, 
and the accounts, accordingly, are full of the most valuable information. 
Tliey cease with the abolitinn of the office of Auditor-General in 1822. 

The Commissioners of Revenue were succeeded early in the nineteenth 
century by the Commissioners of Customs and Excise. 

Stamps and Post Office Revenue were not levied under this svstem. 

The accounts commence in 1649. but are very imperfect to 1683, when 
the Collectors' quarterly accounts commence.

debenture therefor. This order was presented to an officer of the Com- 
missioners, who granted a certificate tliat lie had seen the order, and on

within five days after payment, delivered a debenture containing a receipt

Mai it please your Excellency. 



^^respectfully beg to submit my Report, under the direction 
of the E/igbt Honourable the Master of tbe Rolls, and pursuant 
toSie 24th Section of the Public Records (Ireland) Act, on the 
mdceedings had during the year 1901 in connexion with the 
PabHc Records of Ireland. 

f^^he lamented death of Her Majesty the late Queen Victoria 
Otoled on the staff of this Office many searches for precedents 
twittected with the ceremonies and appointments involved in 
iMTBommencement of His Majesty's reign. 
«^?f ' ■ . 

*.iln the exercise of the powers conferred by Section 5 of the 
niblic Records (Ireland) Act, 18G7, your Excellency, by Order 
a Council dated 2'lth July, 1901, has been pleased to place under 
«e^cliarge of this department the Records of the Offices of 
^Tcsof the Crown and Peace for the County of Donegal, and 
** the County and City of "Waterf ord ; and by a further Order 
^27tli August, those of the Clerk of the Peace for the County

*^ "Undertaken only for the Records of Waterf ord, which, 
I^PPHting to some three tons in weight, had not all been

*^them to appear in the present Report.

deposited here. A list of tKe maps is given in the Appoiidji 
They include 19 Down Survey maps of baronies in the fol]o\\ii|i, 
Counties:— Kilkenny (1), King's (3), Louth (3), Meath (5), Q^^,en'^ 
(4), Waterford (3). The Louth and Waterford maps are 
especially valuable, as the maps of the Record set for the corrcv 
ponding districts are almost, or in some cases quite, destroyed. 
The Record set for Meath and Q.ueen's County are also injured 
and defective. One map of the barony of Inchiquin, Co. Clare, 
is unique, but, unfortunately, incomplete. It appears to l)e a 
contemporary copy of a lost Down Survey map of the Baronv 
authorised in 1656. "With these maps was transferred a Eoll of 
340 signatures to an oath against Transubstantiation, &c., taken 
at Kells in 1745. 

4. The transcription of the volumes of the Civil Survey, 
preparatory to the deposit of the originals in this Office, lia* 
been continued. Twenty volumes for the baronies in Couniie* 
Donegal, Dublin, and Kildare, have been completed ; and 
County Limerick was in progress at the end of the year. 

5. The Lords Commissioners of His Majesty's Treasury have, 
through and at the instance of your Excellency's Government, 
been pleased to sanction the publication by this Departineni of 
an edition of the Early Statutes of Ireland, and a Calendar 
of the Justiciary Rolls of Ireland of the reign of Edward I., 
preserved in this Office. Initial technical difficulties havp, 
delayed the commencement of the work of printing, but twenty- 
seven pages of the Calendar were in ty^pe at the end of the year. 

6. The Yisitation Books of the diocese of Cashel, referred to 
in last Report as placed here by Mr. George S. Gary, havfj 
been generously presented by him, and finally deposited it J 
the Office under the 16th section of the Public Records Art-; 
They include Episcopal Visitation Books, 1664 to 1772: Pora*j 
papers relating to Archidiaconal Yisitation, 1747-53: ai». 
several maps and plans formerly preserved in the Diore«a» 
Registry. 

7. Some "Visitation Books of the Dioceses of Cork, CIovb'j 
and Ross, with some other documents relating to those ?<^j 
having been offered for sale by public auction in Dublin, ''''^^i 
with the sanction of the Treasury, purchased for this OffifP a**! 
deposited here. The books formed part of the library f>^ *< 
clergyman who had been chaplain to a former bishop of thp^j 
dioceses. 

8. Captain W. H. 0. Kemmis, r.a., through Mr. Lewi? GK^ 
Kemmis, presented a MS. Return made by the Irish ^JJJ^I 
Commission in 1816, relative to the Offices of Clerk of the P^«

parishes referred to are Rushbrook, St. Jude, Kilmainham Mjjr 
St. Matthew, Irishtown. '"^^ 



82. Fresh receptacles were provided and approved for the aafc 
keeping of the Records of the parishes of Kilbarron, Kfl. 
cronaghan, and Magdalen Asylum, Belfast, in all of which caa«ir 
Retention Orders had been previously obtained. A new Rete^'

to be a matter of complaint by those engaged in genealogic 
research, and has been brought to my notice, both persoi 
and through the medium of the public Press. The diffici 
delay and expense met in endeavouring to consult bookff^ 
different localities, whose custodians are necessarily of 
absent, form a serious tax on persons pursuing genealogic 
investigations ; while as regards the older books there seema_ 
be no compensating local advantage.

they are in reality more numerous. As a rule, the registers are in fairly 
good condition, but some, which are mere pass or account books, in which 
the marriage entries were made in a very rough manner, are in a bad state 
of preservation. Many marriages are to be found entered twice, once in a 
rough book, and afterwards copied into another book. These registers con- 
tain the entries of dates of marriage, and names of parties ; the names of 
the witnesses and residences being often added, whilst in many cases the 
respective fees paid are also recorded. 

The custom of celebrating clandestine marriages, that is to say, mar- 
riages performed by clergymen, without the publication of banns or the 
granting of a licence, apparently dates back to an early period. In 
England, the registers of marriages in the Fleet and King's Bench prisons 
or Rules, May Fair, the Mint, &c., which were purchased by the Govern- 
ment in 1821, and are now lodged in the office of the Registrar-General, 
Somerset House, date back as far as 1674. They ended, however, in the 
year 1754, as these clandestine marriages were made illegal in England by 
Lord Hardwicke's Act of the preceding year. In Ireland, though the pre- 
sent registers only commence in 1799, marriages of this kind were celebrated 
at a much earlier date. Swift wrote to Pope in 1726 : " I am just going to 
perform a very good office. It is to assist with the archbishop in degrad- 
ing a parson who couples all our beggars I am come back, 

and have deprived the parson, who by a law here is to be hanged the next 
couple he marrieth." In July 1739, the Reverend Edward Shewell, clerk, 
was deprived of the office of priest by the Vicar-General of the Consistorial 
Court of Dublin, for that he had contumaciously refused to appear before 
the Court on a charge of " unlawful and clandestine solemnization of a 

pretended marriage without any banns published or licence 

granted for that purpose." He was executed in Stephen's Green in the 
following year, as an extract from the Dublin Gazette will show: — " Mr. 
Edward Sewell, a degraded clergyman, who lived for some time past at 
the World's End, and followed the business of coupling beggars together, 
was tried and convicted of marrying the son of an eminent citizen to a 
Roman Catholic young woman, and is to be executed for the same Satur- 
day se'night." In 17^, the Reverend Howard Felton, clerk, was excom- 
municated for a similar offence. In connection with this incident, the 
following passage appeared in Faulkner's Journal %i that date: — "It is 
hoped that all marriages will be made illegal which are not called at least 
three times in church beforehand." 

It must not be supposed from these instances that all clandestine mar- 
riages were performed by regularly ordained clergymen. There were 
many impostors who offered to perform such marriages, though they were 
not in orders, either as Protestant Clergymen or Roman Catholic priests. 
The notorious couple-beggar, Samuel D'Assigny, who practised his profes- 
sion during the early years of the eighteenth century, and died in the year 
1737 worth nearly a thousand pounds, is reported " to have joined many 
thousand pairs in wedlock, although he never was in Holy Orders, yet 
wore a Band and a gown, &c., and so imposed on the credulous and hasty 
lovers." 

There were several reasons which induced people in olden times to resort 
to these " couple-beggars " to be joined in matrimony. The most impor- 
tant, especially in cases of abduction, was probably the secrecy of the 
performance, the clergyman and witnesses alone being present, besides 
the parties. The notoriety consequent on the publication of banns in a 
parish church seems to have been very generally disliked, as the following 
extract from the Dublin Morning Post of 8th .January, 1824, will show : — 
" The first marriage by banns in this neighbourhood for many years took 
place at Blessington on the 1st of January . . . Many people who 
cannot procure a licence preferring to be married by unauthorised clergy- 
men rather than submit to have banns published." Another reason was 
the cheapness of the ceremony, most of the entries of fees for such mar- 
riages in the registers under notice being under ten shillings, many being 
as low as 3s. Zd. , while in one instance the sum of Is. Id. was paid. Again, 
the expedition and despatch of this system recommended itself to many 
who desired to avoid the delays caused by the publication of banns or the 





24 APPENDIX TO THIRTY-FOURTH REPORT OF THE DEPUTY 

procuring a licence ; and lastly the difiiculty of getting mixed marri; 
celebrated by any other clergymen. 

The places where most of these marriages were performed were No, 
Haymarket, and Cullenswood. The Haymarket (sometimes called 
Straw-market) is just beside Smithfield, on the North side of Du: _ 
In Dr. Whitelaw's Census of 1798, there is an entry under the head of^. 
"Haymarket" as follows: — "A Barrack, properly No. 9." How soon 
afterwards this house was occupied by the couple-beggars, it is impossible to 
say. The registers of the Reverend Steuart King cover the period of 1799- 
1818, but it is only on the register for 1817-1818 that the note " No. 9, 
Haymarket " occurs. The Reverend Matthew Harris, who was celebrating 
these irregular marriages at the same time (being in 1799 at 21, Grav3 
Walk, alias Tighe Street,jiow Blackball Place) has a note in his register 
to the effect that in 1805 he went to live at No. 5, West Arran Street ; bnt 
in 1815 he celebrated a marriage at No. 9, Strawmarket, as testified by a 
witness in " Duxward v. Durward " (Dublin Consistorial Court). No. 9, 
Haymarket, was described by a witness in a suit as " opposite the weigh- 
house, and next door but one to Burgess Lane." On the death of th» 
Reverend Steuart King, he was succeeded at No. 9 by his son-in-law, the 
Reverend Joseph Wood, who appears to have been assisted by the Reverend; 
John CaldweU during portions of the years 1821-1822. On the death of 
the Reverend Joseph Wood, Mrs. Wood, his widow, and John King, his ^ 
brother-in-law, continued in possession of No. 9 ; and employed the fol- 1* 
lowing clergymen, at different times, to do duty there, viz. : — The -'' 
Reverends John Edward Allen, Benjamin Hobart, James William S. 
Maguire, Hill M'Kenna, and John Stenson. The Reverend Jas. W, MM 
Maguire, who acted for Mrs. Wood between 1838-1840, only resided part of " 
that time at No, 9 ; for the remainder of that period, he had lodgings m 
several parts of the city, to which sometimes the persons desiring to ba 
married were sent by Mrs. Wood. 

The Reverend John G. F. Shulze, minister of the German Church, Pool-*^ 
beg Street, was in the habit of celebrating these irregxdar marriages at his "^ 
house, Anneville, Cullenswood, co. Dublin. He died in 1839, and was ^ ^ 
succeeded in his matrimonial duties by the Reverend James W. Maguire, S^ v^ 
who had severed his connexion with Mrs. Wood at No. 9, Haymarket. 
He, in turn, was probably succeeded in 1844. on his death, by the Reverend 
Hill M'Kenna, as, in the register of the latter, the name of Mary Arm-' 
strong, who was a servant maid at Cullenswood, often occurs as a witness. 

It would appear that these marriages were celebrated at any hour. The 
Reverend Matthew Harris had, on one occasion, retired to his room to bed, 
when he was called at eleven o'clock at night to officiate. In ordinary 
course, on the clergyman coming into the room where the parties and their 
witnesses were assembled, the first proceeding was apparently to agree as 
to the sum to be paid for the service. This largely depended upon the 
ability of the parties, in one case the sum of £6 10s. 5d. having been paid, 
though as a rule the fee was under ten shillings, on one occasion being as 
low as one shilling and one penny (a British shilling). The amount of fees % 
received in a year varied with different clergymen, and with different S" 
years. From the information afforded by the registers in this OflSce, ^ 
the amount varied between £50 and £500. In a few cases, we find the- ^ 
entries " charity," " nothing," against the names of the parties. The 
Reverend Steuart King appears to have been particularly unfortunate, as 
there are many entries of " due" in his registers. Perhaps it was on this 
account that it was the usual practice to secure the money before perform- 
ing the service. The formalities of the marriage service appear to have 
been few. If the parties did not bring their witnesses with them, Mrs. 
Wood, Mr. King, a niece or a servant was always at hand to perform that 
duty. There are a few instances of entries of declarations by the paities 
that they are not apprentices, under any guardian, a ward in Chancery, 
or related, and, in one case, a note of caveat is entered against certain 
parties being married. When the marriage ceremony was over, a certifi- 
cate was issued, if demanded, and for this the fee varied from one shilling 
and sixpence to five shillings, but sometimes half or a whole sovereign was 
given. Mr. Arthur Samuels, however, stated that half-a-crown was the usual

REPORT BY MR. HERBERT WOOD ON CERTAIN REGIST 
OF IRREGULAR MARRIAGES CELEBRATED BY 
LICENSED CLERGYMEN, KNOWN AS COUPLE-BEGG 

The registers of certain irregular marriages, celebrated in ■'^^°^. 
between the years 1799-1844, which were purchased by the Govemmeiw ». 
the year 1900 from the executor of the late Arthur Samuels, esq., ana «» 
behalf of the representatives of the late John Haslar Samuels, esq., ^*^^ 
trars of the Diocese of Dublin, are nominally twenty-eight in ^'^^^ 
but as some of these volumes are themselves composed of several "^'**%

fee The certificate was issued by John King, if the ceremony was performed 
in No. 9, Haymarket ; if at Cullenswood, by Mr. Shulze or Mr. Maguire. 
The entries were not always made on the register at the time, being some- 
times written on slips of paper and entered afterwards. At No 9. Hay- 
market, Mr. King appears to have vigilantly looked after Mrs. Woods 
interests, and often when he could get hold of the note book of the clergy- 
man would make a copy of the entries in another book. Consequently, 
amongst these registers will be found several which are partially dupli- 
cates. Some entries occur where secrecy was evidently desired, as in several 
cases the only entry of the marriage consists of the words, " to an other' ; 
with the fee. On some occasions the names were entered with several 
letters left out and asterisks in their place. We also find such entries as 
" names changed by mutual consent," " names erased by mutual consent." 
Now and then, the mere chronicle of names is enlivened by notes which 
throw a vivid light upon the condition of the persons who resorted to these 
"Couple-beggars," as in the f ollowing : — " Is. 6d. due. Tlie Bride 
absconded without paying" ; "This party stole a gold ring" ; " a ring 
taken away"; "stole my Boots"; "2s. 6rf. bad"; "other wife ; 
" behaved in a very unsuitable manner and were not married by me. J. 
M'Guire." ^ • t i j 

The state of the Civil Law, as regards marriages, m Ireland was as 
follows. Marriages between Roman Catholics and celebrated by Roman 
Catholic priests have always been regarded as valid. Although Presby- 
terian marriages by Presbyterian ministers were admitted to be valid by 
the Civil Courts, yet Presbyterians who were married by their owii 
ministers had often " to confess themselves guilty of fornication, in their 
respective parish churches, or else pay a heavy penalty " (Latimer, His- 
tory of the Irish Presbyterians, p. 130). In 1704, some Presbyterians 
residing at Lisburn were excommunicated by the Episcopal authority for 
the crime of being married by ministers of their own church (id. , p. 136). 
The Government, however, refused to issue the writs necessary for seizing 
excommunicated persons, and the offenders escaped imprisonment. Next 
year a Bill was brought into the Irish Parliament containing clauses which 
would have rendered Presbyterian marriages illegal. But Mr. Broderick, 
the Speaker, managed to get these clauses struck out. It was not till 1782 
that the Irish Parliament passed a Bill by which marriages of Dissenters 
celebrated by their ministers were legalised beyond a doubt, although the 
Lord Chancellor declared that they were already legal. 

But mixed marriages, or marriages celebrated between people of dif- 
ferent religious persuasions, were on quite a different footing. By the 
Act 12 Geo. I., c. 3, marriages between two Protestants, or a Protestant 
and a Roman Catholic, by a priest or degraded clergyman, were declared 
null and void. This disability, as far as the Roman Catholics were con- 
cerned, was not removed till 1870, when, by the, Act 33 and 34 Vic, c. 110, 
sec. 38, mixed marriages by a Roman Catholic priest were legalised. The 
position of the Dissenters may be seen from the following extract from a 
memorandum amongst Clogher Diocesan Papers (Causes of Ofiice for Clan- 
destine Marriages) : — " Several of the Dissenting ministers of the Diocese 
solemnize marriage between members of the Established Church and those 
of their own sect, and claim it as their right to do so . . . . in such 
cases (when it came to Ihe knowledge of the Court) citations were issued 
against the parties so marrying, upon which they always came forward, 
obtained licence, and were married in Church. The fact is, the Dissenting 
ministers would use every means in their power to break in upon the 
Bishop's jurisdiction and abridge his prerogative." In 1840, the Armagh 
Consistorial Court declared that a marriage between a Presbyterian and 
an Episcopalian, performed by a Presbyterian minister, was illegal. Next 
year, a man convicted of bigamy carried the matter to a higher court, on 
the ground that his first marriage had been celebrated by a Presbyterian 
minister, although between a Presbyterian and an Episcopalian, In the 
Queen's Bench, three judges were for liberating the prisoner, and two for 
his condemnation. In the Lords, the Law Lords being divided, the deci- 
sion of the fnferior court was upheld and the marriage pronounced in- 
valid. So great was the consternation on this decision that m 1844 the 



26 APPENDIX TO THIRTY-FOURTH REPORT OF THE DEPUTY 

Government brought in and passed a Bill declaring valid not only any 
future, but any past mixed marriages celebrated by Presbyterian ministers. 

Mixed marriages by regularly ordained clergymen of the Established 
Church of Ireland, though without publication of banns or licence, were 
never void in Ireland, and only voidable in cases of minors and wards ^ 
entitled to estates over certain limits, if an action were taken within a year *: 
(9 Geo. II., c. 11, s. 8), but both the clergymen and the partis rendered 
themselves liable to certain legal penalties, and the clergymen were often 
degraded by the ecclesiastical authorities. If such a clergyman, however, 
after being degraded, again ventured to celebrate a mixed marriage, he 
thereby committed a felony, and rendered himself liable to the provisions 
of the Act, 12 Geo, I., c. 3, the marriage also being null and void. By 
the Act of 32 Geo. III., c. 21 (1792) inter-marriage between Protestants 
and Roman Catholics was permitted, if duly celebrated by a clergyman 
of the Established Church. 

The Marriage Act of 1844 (7 and 8 Vic. , c. 81) regulated the marrij^e 
laws of the United Kingdom, and clandestine marriages in Ireland hence- 
forth became invalid. 



As may easily be supposed, these clandestine marriages have frequently | 
lead to litigation, and the registers have often been produced in court. | 
To judge from the evidence obtainable, it would appear that these mar- | 
riages, if performed by a duly ordained clergyman of the Church of Ire- I 
land, were regarded as valid, and the entries in the registers generally 
accepted as evidence, though in the case of " Browne v. Copland " (Del&. 
gates Court, 1847), the registers of the Reverend Jas. Maguire were^not 
accepted as evidence. The Court was of opinion that " though these irre- 
gtilar marriages are to a certain degree by law binding, no one will pretend 
to say that they are regarded with favour. The Courts of Law are bound 
to submit to them when fully proved, but not to facilitate the proof of this 
sort of marriage. For these reasons we are of opinion that these books 
should not be received for any purpose." In England, by the Act of 
3 and 4 Vic, c. 92, dealing with the custody of some non-parochial regis- 
ters, the registers of the " Fleet " parsons were expressly declared to be 
inadmissible in a court of law as evidence. 

On the other hand, in the case of Cluxton, a bankrupt, 1875, Judge 
Harrison was so struck with the enormous importance of the registers of 
these couple-beggars, " containing records which affected the legitimacy 
and rights of property of so many persons," that in 1877 he recommended 
that they should be obtained by Government. He also wrote : — " Evidence 
was taken before me in the course of the proceedings to establish the fact 
that this marriage was celebrated by a clergyman named ' Maguire,' who 
was an ordained clergyman of the Church of England and Ireland, and 
who celebrated marriages clandestinely in Dublin for several years before 
the passing of the Marriage Act of 1844, and this being established to my 
satisfaction, I decided that the marriage was a valid marriage, and that 
the Bankrupt was legitimate."* In the year 1875, Lord Chancellor Ball 
wrote : — "There is no doubt that in these books may be found the only 
record of marriages, which, though irregular (not being either by banns 
or licence), were legally valid and binding, and the offspring legitimate. 
I have known Mr. Schulz* book used in proceedings in which questions of 
this kind arose — and these are exactly similar and of equal value." In 
the case of " Kearney v. Walker," which was tried in the Probate and 
Matrimonial Court, London, in the year 1874, where it was sought to 
recall letters of administration of the estate of James Kearney, the case 
turned upon the validity of the marriage of James Kearney to Julia Farrell 
by the Reverend Mr. Baggs, a clergyman in holy orders, who was termed a 

* Another example is afforded by the matter of Maguire a Minor, in Chancery. In 
this case in 1840 it was referred to Master Brooke to enquire, amongst other 
matters, as to whether a marriage celebrated between the minor and one Margaret 
Hamilton, by the Reverend J. Maguire, was a legal marriage. In his report be 
B tated that such marriage was a valid and legal marriage.

couple-beggar, at his house in Straw Market, Dublin, on the 11th August, 
1834. Mr. Arthur Samuels produced the register of the Reverend Mr. 
Baggs, and also the certificate of the marriage. After hearing the evi- 
dence, Judge Hannen expressed himself satisfied that the above marriage 
of the deceased was valid. From the evidence which Mr. A. Samuels gave 
about the case (see Cluxton, a Bankrupt), it is clear that he considered 
that it was the production of the register and the certificate which decided 
the case. He also stated that both he and his father were in the habit 
of giving certificates of marriages from these books, and that " they were 
never questioned." 

(Considering the value of these registers in proving the legitimacy of so 
many thousands of people, it has been thought advisable to put upon 
record any information as to the custody of these records since the death 
of these clergymen until they came into the possession of this office. Mr. 
Arthur Samuels deposed (Cluzton, a Bankrupt, 1875) that he bought the 
registers of Caldwell, Wood, AUen, Baggs, Hobart, M'Kenna, and Stenson, 
on the 8th October, 1872, from Mrs. Catherine King, widow of the late 
John King, who received them from his sister, the late Mrs. Jane Wood, 
widow of the Reverend Joseph Wood. After the death of the last-named, 
his widow employed the other clergymen enumerated above to celebrate 
these marriages. It will be found that most of the registers of these 
clergymen contain endorsements in the handwriting of Mrs. Wood, indi- 
cating the names of those who performed the marriages recorded in the 
respective books. Mr. Samtiels also deposed that the registers of King, 
Harris, Shulze, and Maguire came into possession of his father, the 
Registrar of the Consistorial Court of Dublin. With respect to the register 
of the Reverend Matthew Harris, Mrs. Stephens, his stepdaughter, deposed 
(Durward v. Durward) that it was formerly in her possession, but was 
afterwards lodged in the Consistorial Court, so that it is probably in this 
way that this register came into Mr. Samuels' possession. The register of 
the Reverend J. G. F. Shulze, in the custody of this office (1835-9), is 
probably the same as the one lodged with Messrs. Stock, of the Dublin 
Consistorial Registry, in 1842. Two other registers (1806-1837) of this 
clergyman are at present in the custody of the Registrar-General, having 
been bought by Government in 1870 from Mr. James Meyer, 13, Old Mount 
Pleasant, Ranelagh, nephew by marriage of the Reverend J. G. F. Shulze. 
At the time of his selling these registers to the Government, he made a 
declaration that these books came into his possession at the time of his 
uncle's death, and continued so till lodged in the General Registry Office ; 
that he believed that they contained the registry of marriages which his 
ixncle celebrated ; that he believed that the entries were most, if not all, in 
his uncle's handwriting, and that none had been added since they came 
into his possession. With respect to the registers of the Reverend Jas. 
Maguire, his widow declared in her evidence (Cluzton, a Bankrupt) that 
she had lodged them with Mr. Samuels for safety sometime between the 
years 1844-1850, as far as she could remember, and that she had protected 
them as weU as she could. 

The following is a list of the clergymen whose registers are in the cus- 
tody of this office, together with any information which has been collected

\.Y IT PLEASE YOUR EXCELLENCY. 

» respectfully beg to submit my Keport, under the direction 
the Eight Honourable the Master of the Eolls, and pursuant 
^the 24th section of the Public Eecords (Ireland) Act, 1867, 
^nthe proceedings had during the year 1902 in connexion with 
file Public Eecords of Ireland. 



S.. A further addition to the counties whose Eecords have xsxiv.. par 3, 

1>eeii brought within the charge of the Master of the Eolls was 

loade by Order in Council of 24th July, 1902, deahng under 

"feion 5 of the Pubhc Eecords Act, with the Eecords of the 

XHerk of the Crown and Clerk of the Peace for the county of 

tJalway and Clerk of the Crown and Peace for the town of 

Galway. Owing to the pressure of work entailed m deahng 

Anth the papers from the three counties whose Eecords were

3. The Irish Land Commissioners, in accordance with the 
provisions of the Irish Church-Amendment Act, 1881, Sect, j, 
Sub- Sect. 3, made a further transfer to this Office, of liecords 
which belonged to the former Estabhshed Church of Ireland. 
The}' are of a very miscellaneous character, including, besidf- 
certain documents specially mentioned below, Presentiitiuns, 
Licences, Certificates, Sequestration Papers, Building l'aper<. 
Plans, Leases, Mortgages, Commissions, Returns, Petition.v. 
Memorials, Citations, Proxies, Titles, Pirst Fruits papers, ^vc 

4. A Parish Register of Births, Deaths, and Marriages which 
had for many years remained in the possession of the represen- 
tatives of a former churchv^arden , was offered to this Office hy 
a person to whose hands it had come, and a reward was paid 
by the Treasury at the instance of the Irish Government. 

ixiv., p«r. 4. 5. Further progress has been made in the transcription 
of the volumes of the Civil Survey preparatory to the deposit. 
by H.M. Commissioners of Woods, Forests, and Laud 
Revenue, of the originals in this Office. The volumes for 
County Londonderry have been completed ; those for Lnnerick 
are in progress. 

6. At the request of the l)epartment for Technical Educa- 
tion, the cover of one of the volumes of the Journals of ilu 
Irish House of Commons, removed from the book for the pur- 
pose, was lent to the Department for exhibition in the Art 
collection at the Cork Exhibition. 

7. One of the clerks on the staff of this Office, Mr. P. Kent, 
has been transferred to the Offices of the Local Oovernment 
Board, Ireland. His place has been filled by the appointment 
on Civil Service Commissioners' Certificate, of Mr. David A. 
Chart. The facilities afforded for transfer and removal on vc- 
examination of clerks apjDointed under the Class I. open exami- 
nation scheme has proved very detrimental to the efficiency of 
this Office. The employment of a clerk for some time after 
appointment to this Office necessarily consists in training m 
palaeography, and in acquiring a knowledge of the nature, use. 
and arrangement of the Records. In the frequent cases of 
removal from this Office, this training is rarely of any nsc in 
the Department to which the clerk is transferred. The ])erio(l 
of training, therefore, represents a serions waste of pubhc tinie : 
while by the depletion of skilled hands the work of this O&icc 
is much retarded. 

8. The Great Rolls of the Pipe of the Irish Exchequei- con- 
tain an important collection of accounts of sheriffs. escbcator>. 
and other public officers. These accounts afford an impovtnn 
illustration of the extent and power of the central noverniiieii'- 
especially during the 14th century, a period for which siicJi 
information is much needed for the elucidation of Irish history. 
The rolls are practically unused by historical students. 1 P''^

26 THE THIRTi:-rirTH REPORT O^ TK£ I^EPUTY ivEEPEU 

79. The Annual Keports required by the 6th sectiou oi' tl„. 
Parochial Records Act, 1876, from the clergymen to wjio^e 
custody Records were committed under Retention Orders w <.,^. 
with one exception, all duly received last year. 

80. Notwithstanding the fullest observance of the provisions 
of the Parochial Records Act intended to safeguard the Records 
allowed to remain in approved repositories in the parishes, the 
experience of former years has been more than borne out liy 
the events of 1902. During last year three volumes in tlireV 
distinct parishes, each supposed to be protected by the carryiii- 
out in every detail of the requirements of the Act of 1876, were 
reported to be missing. In one case the book was found after 
representations to the incumbent from this Office. In twu 
others, Drumballyroney and Carnew, the fullest inquiries liavt- 
failed to elicit any information as to the lost books. In Kil- 
meen, Co. Cork, where a still graver crime has sinee l»eeii 
committed, the safe was early last year dislodged by thie\es 
from its place in the vestry wall, broken open, and the Reconlt, 
removed ; though subsequently recovered by the police. 

81. Complaints continue to be made by persons engaged in 
genealogical research of the difficulty of gaining access to tin- 
Registers in local custody. Occasionally, also, to the extrava- 
gant fees demanded for the examination of the books. In (^iie 
of these cases, which occurred in a prominent Dublin chiinli. 
the sum asked as fee for searching the Registers was wholly 
prohibitory. It would seem that if the safety of the older 
books is to be secured, and their utility to the public preserved, 
measures should be taken to ensure that, as intended l>y the 
Act of 1875, they should be deposited in this Office. 

82. A Register of the parish of Faughart, from the conse- 
cration of the church, has been restored to this Office after an 
absence from proper custody of more than half a century. It 
would appear to have been in the hands of a former Church- 
warden and of his representatives during most of this time. J* 
is probable that many such books are still preserved in ]\Ianor 
Houses, or Agents' or Solicitors' offices, or among the papers <■. 
former Clergymen, The restoration of such books would prove 
of great importance. 

State Paper Office. 

83. The Government Papers received were :— rrum i^^ 
Registrar, Chief Secretary's Office, 67 cartons of papers h«^* 
1892 , and the registers and index for 1890 ; Parliamentary T*'^

lave been transferred to Eecord Office. The indexing of this 
jcries is being continued. 
•*" 

,1 88. The space remaining for deposit of papers having become 
^ restricted, a certain amount of further accommodation has 
IJeen secured by a re-arrangement of Miscellaneous Papers for 
]|30-9. These have been removed from Carton Boxes and 
me^e up in brown -paper parcels. For papers rarely con- 
lulted the latter form of deposit is more suitable, and occupies 
much less space. 

-S,89. The transfer to the Eecord Office included : Constabulary par 54. 
Becords for the period 1796-1846. These consist chiefly of 
papers and books ranging between 1822 to 1837, at which date, 
uader 6 & 7 Will. IV., c. 13, a new organisation of the force 
wi^ adopted. 

.Returns of Valuation, and other papers connected with 
emunissions to value premises in cities and certain corporate 
^jiB in Ireland, for the payment of Ministers' Money, under 
^Sl 18 Car. II., c. 7 (Ireland), and extending from 1717 to

series ; which are, however, in most cases, supplemental to the 
series already preserved here : —

5. The Appendix to this Report contains a further portion of 
the Catalogue of Accoimts preserved in the Great Rolls of the 
Pipe, for the years 1 to 12 Edward I. These accounts afford 
valuable material for the historian. The accounts rendered by 
sheriflTs and other officers indicate, by their fulness, and the n- 
gularity or otherwise by which they are presented, the extent and ^ 
effective power of the central Government. The movements rf i 
the Chief Governor and other justices, the building and repair « i 
castles, the collection of -the Custom, have important bearing ooj 
the history and prosperity of the country. The Escheaton»| 
Accounts include interesting information as to the property ao**]

The accounts of Sheriffs, and other accountants of towns, liberti*] 
and manors, are of great local interest, and contain a laTg*]

20 THE THIRTY-SIXTH REPORT OF THE DEPUTY KEEPER 

68. The Records have been retained in the parish under 
Retention Order in the case of Balbriggan, Bailee, Beciive, 
and S. John's, Sandymount. The number of Retention 
Orders granted by the Master of the Rolls, permittmg the 
retention of Parish Records in approved receptacles in their 
respective parishes, is 607, of which 577 were still in force at 
the end of the year. 

The Annual Reports required by the 6th section of tlie 
Parochial Records Act, 1876, from the cler^men to whose 
custody Records were committed under Retention Orders, were 
all duly received last year. 

69. Repeated complaints continue to be received as to the 
difficulty of access to the older Parish Registers which remain 
in local custody, and also to the unsatisfactory conditions under 
which, in many cases, it is alone possible to consult them. It 
seems that in many parishes there is no suitable provision for 
meeting the needs of genealogical enquirers. Moreover, the 
conditions which are intended to secure the Records from fire 
and thieves, have in many cases tended to expose them to 
increased injury from damp. Influenced by such considera- 
tions, one city clergyman last year deposited his old books in 
this Ofi&ce. It would greatly benefit the public, as well as the 
records themselves, if this example were more widely followed. 

70. Registers of two parishes held under Retention Orders 
in parish safes were during the year reported to have dis- 
appeared. In one case (an important tbvm parish) the books, 
which had been improperly removed from the safe by a curate, 
were, after a lengthened correspondence, recovered : in the 
other case, after some correspondence, the book stated to be 
wanting was also reported to be recbvered. 

71. The attention which has been directed to the Parish 
Records has been productive of some good. An old register of 
the parish of S. Michael, Dublin, 1656-1750, the existence nf 
which had been for a long time unknown, has come to li?ht 
amonff the muniments of another parish, and been restored to 
its place here. A register of the parish of Timogne, Queen's 
Co., containing entries from 1798 to 1845, has also been 
restored to its place among the records of the parish here, 
having been generously presented by T. S. Moyles, Esquire. 

72. In the original administration of the ParishiRecords Act, 
it WPS contemplated that the current books might be capnhlc 
of. division, so that when possible the later entries, after Pi?- 
establishment, might be separated from those previous tn it. 
enabling the former to remain in the parish while the older 
books were deposited here. This was not at first found 
feasible. The Master of the Rolls has during 190.S authorised 
the adoption of this course in cases now pending for remornl. 
where it can be done without injury to the books, and it has 
pccordinglv been carried out in several cases.

Kegisters and Index 1891. From the Council Of6ce, 29 
cartons of Parhamentary Peturns, 187G to 1894, 4 bundles of 
books and papers relating to Polling Districts 1873, being part 
of the collection received in 1889, (see Pteport xxii., p. 34). 

74. The searches made for Government Departments during 
the year numbered 573. This number is considerably in excess 
of those recorded in any previous year. 

75. The Office of Arms having been removed from the

have been handed over to the use of the State Paper Office. 

76. The papers received from the 'Council Office have been

77. The Distress Papers, 1891, contained in 37 cartons 
received in 1901, have been arranged and parcelled. The 
Evicted Tenants Commission (1892-3) Papers, 27 cartons and 
bundles, have been arranged and parcelled. Applications for 
situations 1880-3 have been arranged and parcelled. 

78. Convict and Prisoners Papers (Transportation), 178U- 
1837, have been arranged. A number of Judges' Reports on 
Convict Cases, not originally put up with the regular series, 
have been arranged and indexed. 

79. A calendar of papers connected with the State of the 
Country has been carried down to 1803. A small collection 
contained in four cartons labelled " Selected Papers " had been 

^;at some former time taken from this series. As there seemed 
^no good reason for continuing it as a separate class, the papers 
'have been restored to their places in the jmncipal series. A 
'number of miscellaneous ]mpers not hitherto classed have been 

examined and inserted in the classes to which they relate. 
i All which is humbly submitted to Your Excellency as n^y
