I posted this in the spirit of helping others as some of you have helped me with some Kincaid tidbits.  As the saying goes, you reap what you sow.  Do not hesitate to use any of the information for your research and to help others.

The Fishmonger minute books are not an easy source to quickly get tidbits from as the Irish data is spread among other entries relating to all of their business in Ireland and England.  However, it is indeed a treasure trove of genealogical tidbits.  I will continue to pull pension tidbits, leases, etc. from them as I find them.  I must stress that there is wonderful data to be gleaned from the visitation reports.  There were a few in 1820 and visitations occurred about every three years or so after that.  They are a real live history of the area and there are lots of tenant references in them.

Great work Peter, keep it up.  My Family (McFeely) is mentioned a lot in the Fishmongers papers, although I would love to see the estate records to see if there is any more info on Dennis McFeely from Ballyholly.

Once again, keep up the good work people do appreciate it.
