Look up request
« on: Saturday 18 June 16 15:37 BST (UK) »
Is it possible for somebody to look up an entry in the Irish Petty Sessions Court Registers 1828-1912? This has just come online apparently, according to Find My Past.

This is the entry I'm interested in:

First name: Sophia
Last name: Jeffreys
Year: 1876
Role: Defendant
Court: Drogheda
County: Louth

My wife's great grandfather Jeremiah Jeffrey, who was a British soldier from Cambridgeshire, England, married a Sophia Martin in Drogheda in 1872 and I'm curious to know if this is the same person.

Many thanks.

Hi,

The court record is as follows;
24 January 1876 - Owen Nugent and Sophia Jeffreys - Stockwell Lane.

'For that on 18 January 1876 deft. did refuse possession of a house situate in Stockwell Lane Drogheda after notice to quit.'  Outcome ; No appearance dismissed without prejudice.

There are a couple more entries with different names in the same vein - maybe more information in the Irish Newspapers.
West Yorks; ---- Illingworth, Marshall, Muffit/Muffett/Murfitt, Barber, Sanderson, Townend, Barraclough, Lister -- and lots more. Locations mainly in Birstall parish - Hartshead-- Drighlington --Adwalton --Mirfield - Heckmondwike --Kippax - Sherburn in Elmet.

Ireland ------Cleary, Whelan - Nenagh.
Dowling - Monasterevin
Daly - Westmeath

Lancashire ---- Smith from Alston , Johnson and Fairclough---- Tarleton and loads more from Tarleton and Accrington areas.
