12. A BRIEF of some Things which I observed in the several

Baronies of the county of Tyrone during the time that I was High Sheriff of that county in Anno 1608, vizt.

(“In Carew's handwriting.” The High Sheriff's name was John Teighe, Esq.)

First, I observed that there are certain kindreds or septs of the Neales in divers parts of Tyrone, which ever did, and still do as much as in them lieth, oppose both against Tyrone and all those of his proper (sept and party, namely, in the Barony of Strabane, Tyrloghe Oge O'Neale, son to Sir Arthur O'Neale and all his followers and dependants, as well of the Neales as of the Quinnes, and likewise of divers other septs on that side of Slewe Sheese. Also in the Barony of O'Meaghe all that sept of the Neales called the Slughte Arts, do deadly hate Tyrrones sept. And likewise in the Barony of Clougher, are two other distinct septs of the Neales who hate Tyrrone and his sept, one of which septs are the sons of Shan O'Neale and their followers. In the Barony of the Glynnes, called Loughinisolyn, the inhabitants consisting chiefly of the Neales, the Haggans, the Mullhallans with the McCahirs and the Quines are wholly those which had their absolute depen

dance upon Tyrrone and his sept, and in this place especially
about that part of the Barony called Killytraghe, being a strong
fastness, do inhabit the chief nest of those that upon any
sudden occasion offered them would first show themselves in
action for Tyrones party, they being able out of this one quarter
to draw together at least 200 able men, and well armed within
24 hours warning. Also I have observed that under colour
of having liberty to wear arms in the time of O'Dogherties
rebellion for their own defence, the country is now every-
where full of pikes and other weapons which their Irish smiths
daily make. Another matter of note is that the permitting
of some of the naturals in every quarter of that county to
bear the title of officials, for the Bishop, is a great inconvenience
and hurt to the establishment of the King's laws and courses
of justice amongst that barbarous people, for these kind of
fellows, under colour of their authority from the Bishop,
take upon them to decide all private controversies and wrongs
committed between party and party, in the nature of Breghans
or Judges, according to the rules of the old Popish canons,
and do extort from the people at least 38 or 48, in the pound
for every matter that they give order in; and, withal,
enjoin and persuade them as much as they possibly can, that
they shall not commit these matters of controversy to trial by
the King's laws, and, therefore, it were necessary this abuse
were reformed.
I likewise observed a great defect of schools in those parts
for the instruction of their youth, which, upon conference on
that point with the best gentlemen of every quarter of the
country, I find them very willing and desirous to have schools
for that purposesettled amongst them.
