described. 120 great oaks have been brought from Fermanagh 30 miles from him, and more ready framed, being 280 garron loads from Bealturbert, has made a watercourse for mill in a stony and rocky ground which cost him 25l. as he says. Has agreed for 500 barrels of lime in Meath to be brought him upon demand. Has removed five Irish houses near his castle and built two other Irish houses in the Great Island. Has an English millwright, smith, and farrier, with their wives and families, and necessary tools, and an English and Irish house carpenter with their wives and families, 2 or 3 other families of several trades, and has contracted at Bealturbert for a boat for use at Lough Rawre. Lieut. Carth, 500 acres as servitor, and has taken possession, but done nothing else. Sir Thomas Ashe, Knt., and his brother John, 750 acres in the Barony of Tullaghgarvy, are building a bawn of sods and earth with a good large ditch at a place called Dromhyle, and intend to draw water from the lough adjoining to compass the same; have drawn a watercourse two miles long to a place where they purpose to make a mill. Have made preparations for building a good house and will have their materials ready next spring. Mr. Brent Moor and Mr. Arthur Moor, 1,500 acres have taken possession, but done nothing. Sir George Greames and Sir Richard Greames 1,000 acres apiece in the Barony of Tolehagh as servitors, have taken possession, but done nothing. Captain Hugh Colme and Walter Talbot, 1,500 acres as servitors, have built a strong timber house and two other wattled houses, felled 40 timber trees, no other work.
Natives of co. Cavan.—Melmore Oge O'Relly and his mother the Lady Katherin Ny Neale, have removed to Ballyne Carge assigned them for their portion. Hugh McShane O'Relly removed to his portion, and is building a mill. Melmore McPhillip O'Relly removed, and is building a house. McBrady and Connor McShane Roe Brady, removed to their proportions. Melmore McHugh Conolagh O'Relly dwelling on the land he had before, and given him on the last division. McKyernan removed to his portion, and about building a house. Bryan Echoghe McOwen removed to his proportion. Phillip McTyrlo Brady is about to remove. Magauran had his own land given him on this division. Rest of the natives that had land assigned in that co, are not yet removed.
The servitors being charged by us with backwardness in having done so little, answered for the most part that they had not taken out their patents until the end of Candlemass term last, and that by reason the British do yet retain natives (who ought to be their tenants) they are disabled to put things forward as otherwise they would, but they will go roundly in hand, with their works this next spring as they have promised us.
