Legal advice relating to the inheritance dispute among the children of Sir Edward William Crosbie.

This advice lead to an agreement among Edward William Crosbie, and his siblings Sir William Edward Crosbie, Louisa Dorothea Crosbie, and Elizabeth Cronhelm with her husband Henry Clark Cronhelm. There is also an account of the collective cost of the services provided by Messers Ryan and Parkinson.

Annual Report 1873

Annual report, accounts and rental for year ending June 1873, containing positive reports on the financial condition of the estate with only 'trifling arrears' of £32 and a general increase in overall rental income. Expenditure consisted of main drainage of lands at Roskeen, Queen's County; the reclamation of the bog at Killurin; thorough drainage at Bawnmore; construction of two new cottages in Geashill Village and a substantial range of offices for Mr Warren of Gorteen. Also comments on the scarcity of labour on the estate due to emigration to America, and that the 'Russian Village' (portable labourers' housing) has been moved to Cappyroe from Ballyknockan.

Regrets to say that relations with the tenantry are not entirely satisfactory. Tenants without a written contract were asked to sign one but the parish priest, using 'the extraordinary and mischievous power which an Irish priest possesses over an ignorant Roman Catholic tenantry', informed tenants that by signing they will exclude themselves from any benefit under the Land Act.

Describes the eviction of Mr. O'Flanagan, a large tenant on the estate, who had tried to establish 'tenant-right' through the courts but 'failed signally, as at the last moment before the claim came before the Chairman of the Quarter Sessions, Mr. O'Flanagan signed a paper admitting that he had no claim whatever to tenant-right in his holding.'

Parsonstown (Birr) Rural District Council

Annual Report 1883

Annual report, accounts and rental for year ending June 1883, describing a considerable improvement in the financial situation with a large drop in arrears outstanding due to the Arrears Act of 1882. Reports that abandoned and boycotted farms now account for 850 statute acres of land in Lord Digby's hands set for temporary grazing and necessitating the purchase of cattle. Also reports that despite a decrease in the net rental due to the action of the Land Commission Courts and voluntary reduction of rents, it was possible to remit profits of £11,500. No land improvements or works were carried out, but 50 acres of replanting was carried out at Derrygunnigan Wood, River Wood at Clonad and Derrygolan.

Describes a general improvement in the condition of the estate and attributes the cessation of agitation to the Prevention of Crimes Act brought in following the Phoenix Park murders in spring 1882.

1889-1892

  • IE OCL P131/2/2/2/2/4
  • File
  • 22 February 1889-22 December 1892
  • Part of Loughton Papers

Letters received by Benjamin Bloomfield Trench from 1889 until 1892.

The majority of of the letters within this file deals with the Trench V Fenwick legal case. Dr Bedford Fenwick, 20 Upper Wimpole street, London, accused Benjamin Bloomfield Trench of spreading malicious rumours about him. According to a letter dated 19 April 1890 he states that Benjamin stated that 'he had made love to a certain young lady obtained letters from her jilted her, and then threatened to make them public unless hush money was paid to him'. In a letter dated 11 May 1890 he argues that 'It was evidently part of an organised attempt known to exist on they part of certain scoundrels to prevent all nursing reform' which would consist of amalgamating the Trained Nurses Annuity Fund with the British Nurses Association. The alleged incident took place in front of Lady Eleanor Liddle and Lady Georgiana Bloomfield.

The file also contains letters of an administrative nature.

Annual Report 1894

Annual report, accounts and rental for year ending June 1894, showing an unchanged rental situation form the previous year. Digby refers to the defeat of the Home Rule Bill and his satisfaction that 'the extraordinary proposal of the Government to reinstate evicted tenants has failed to excite enthusiasm'.

Annual Report 1895

Annual report, accounts and rental for year end June 1895, showing rents and arrears unchanged since the previous year. Despite the continued low prices for agricultural produce, and a moderate harvest, rents were satisfactorily paid, and Digby notes 'the agitation and discontent prophesied as the inevitable result of the defeat of the Home Rule and Evicted Tenants Bills have been absolutely non existent, and in this district boycotting and intimidation of any kind are almost things of the past.'
