James Gartlan / Seamus of Drogheda
« on: Wednesday 23 November 11 14:22 GMT (UK) »
I am trying to track down information on a gentleman named James Gartlan who I believe was initially from either Killanny or the area around Carrickmacross in Monaghan. 

He was born circa 1741 and died in 1837.  It is alleged that in his early working life that he was a tobacco smuggler in Louth known as Seamus of Drogheda.

Having made his money in the tobacco trade, he later either, set up, or may have extended a possible business of his fatherís in malting, and eventually bought another distillery making this his main business.  He married Alice McEvoy before 1800, and bought a country house outside Carrickmacross.

regards

Ian Gartlan
