The following is an extract from The Lisburn Standard Saturday 30th November 1889
Sir Richard Wallace, Bart., summoned Robert McCord, of America and Julia McCord, of Moygariff for possession of a farm of land, situate at Moygariff.
It appeared that in January last the landlord had obtained an electment decree against the tenant for £127 10s 9d, arrears of rent due. He afterwards served an eviction notice upon the tenant, constituting him a caretaker; and owing to the tenant having gone to America his wife was unable to dispose of the farm during the six months allowed her under the Act, and being unable to pay the rent the tenant’s interest now lapsed, and the farm became vested in the landlord, who now sought possession. Mr. Williamson (for Mr. Wellington Young) appeared for the landlord, and Mr. Wilkins for the tenant. Mr. Williamson, having produced the numerous documents necessary to obtain the order, and having explained the complicated procedure required by the Act, asked for the order of ejectment. Mr. Wilkins objected on the grounds that the procedure was not in strict accordance with the Act, the summons not having been served in proper time. On the point raised by the solicitor for the tenant the Bench refused the application, and the summons was struck out.
