Lurgan Coat of Arms The Armagh Guardian

8 June, 1872  


Lord Liford having moved the appointment of a select committee to enquire into the working of this Act, The Earl of Kimberley contended that it would be premature and unwise to grant an enquiry at present. The Act was working well and doing a great deal of good in Ireland. Lord Lurgan, as a resident landlord in Ulster, bore testimony to the fact that the Act was working well, and was in no respect detrimental to the legitimate influence of the landowners. Lord Cairns would suggest that there should be two judges of superior qualifications who should go through the different counties, and that from their decisions there should only be one appeal to the Land Court simply. The Lord Chancellor protested against their destroying all confidence in the new system by plucking it up as soon as planted to see how it was growing. Their lordships divided, and the proposal was carried by a majority of 53 to 29.


The information on this website is free and will always be so. However, there are many documents and records that we would like to show here that are only available for sale. If you would like to make a donation to the Lurgan Ancestry project, however small (or large!), to enable us to acquire these records, it would be very much appreciated. We could cover our pages in Goggle Ads to raise money, but feel that this would detract from the information we are trying to provide. You can also help us to raise money by purchasing some of our ebooks on our sister website:
