Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Re: Surname from 1803
« on: Friday 15 June 18 19:21 BST (UK)  »
Like Mike, I'm doubtful that the name is Carr.

I think the name uses the Latinate joined ae character, as does the surname of the widow in the last line (Widow Claeich?).

However, I'm not sure exactly how to interpret that in the context of early C19th Irish usage.

I'm also not sure what the last character is (or last two characters are).

Sir Peter Courteny

ADDED:

Regarding the place, I think it begins with T-r-o or T-r-e and ends with t-h.

It may have a k in the middle.

ADDED 2:

May be this man or a relative of his:

...deed expressed and resited...

As goldie has said, resited = recited

It's common usage at this time, and just means that the information was stated in that place.

ADDED:

Although the first letter looks very like a d, it's not quite right.  Compare the d and e in commodities to the first letter and you'll see what I mean.

Possibly Sivah or Sinah.

Does either name have a Biblical resonance?
