Belfast Newsletter 1791 September 2-6.

 

 

I find this clipping fascinating for the names of all the people mentioned who are connected either by intermarriage, by lease arrangements or both. Many of them are newcomers to me and I am still learning more about the various interconnections. I will revisit this page once I have transcribed several deeds involving people with these names.

 

 

Robbery and reward.

 

Whereas on Friday the 26th instant between the hours of 10 and 11 o'clock at night, the house of Martha Coulter[1] of Cavanamore[2], in the County of Louth, was broken open and robbed of 15 guineas, and several articles of plate, viz. 6 tablespoons, 5 teaspoons, a tray, a pair of salts, parish of sugar tongs, a punch ladle, and a pair of shoe buckles, most of them marked J. M. B.[3]

Now we whose names are here unto subscribed to promise to pay the several sums to our names annexed  to any person or persons who shall in the space of six months from the date hereof, discover on and prosecute to conviction, the person or persons concerned in said robbery; and if any of the persons concerned shall make a discovery so that his or their accomplices may be prosecuted to conviction, they will not only be entitled to the reward, but application shall be made for his Majesty's most gracious pardon. – 20th August, 1791.
