Turbary

The turf bogs are nearly exhausted. The little that remains is in the town land of Budore at the eastern extremity of the parish. The principal supply of turbary is from Divis mountain and the Brown Moss in the parish of Derryaghy.

Bogs.

In Budore town land at the east of the parish, and at an elevation of from 800 to 1000 feet above the sea, is a small tract of turf bog now nearly exhausted from being used for firing. Its depth does not exceed 6 feet. The subsoil is a reddish-coloured clay. A very little fir timber, principally stumps, is found in this bog. The stumps stand, broken and sometimes burnt, at the same height. The trunks lie scattered indiscriminately.

Gordon v Mulholland

Extract from The Lisburn Standard — Saturday, May 14, 1892

Belfast Equity Court
(Before Mr. Henry Fitzgibbon, Q.C.)
Gordon v Mulholland

This was an equity civil bill brought by Mary Catherine Gordon of Budore, in the County of Antrim, infant, under the age of twenty-one years, by Ivor McNally and Margaret McNally, against Daniel Mulholland, of Ballydonaghy, and Mary McNally of Budore, executor and executrix of James McNally, farmer deceased, for the purpose of having the estate of James McNally administered, and the trusts of the will carried into execution under an order of the Court.

Mr. W.M. Whitaker, Barrister-at-Law (instructed by Mr. Young), appeared for the plaintiff, and Mr. Wm. Megrath, Barrister-at-Law (Instructed by Mr Kerr), for the defendant.

It seemed that the said James McNally died on the 19th July, 1890. He made a will bequeathing to his wife half of his farm on the condition that she would remain unmarried, but in case she married again the farm was to go to his sisters, in trust for the plaintiff, Mary Catherine Gordon, and the remaining half of the farm he bequeathed to his sisters. Probate was granted on the 9th August, 1890, to the defendants, and as the widow had again married, certain difficulties had arisen necessitating the administering of the estate.

His Honour granted a decree for administration of the estate.

Fatal Accident — James Rice

The following is from the Lisburn Herald dated 14th May 1898.

Fatal accident at Crumlin

A man named John Mulholland informed the police at Crumlin on Wednesday that the dead body of a farmer named James Rice had been found that morning on the public road at a place called Budore, a few miles from here. The body was shockingly mutilated when found. A message was conveyed to Dr. Carson who quickly arrived. Acting Sergeant McClelland and Constable Balfour were also on the scene shortly afterwards, and had the remains removed to Knockcairn, the late residence of deceased. The police reported the matter to the county coroner, Dr. Mussen J.P.

Stolen Fowl

The following is an extract from the Irish News and Belfast Morning News dated 18th March 1912 and appears with permission of the Irish News.

Antrim Assizes.
Larceny of Fowl

William Moneypenny and Hugh McCann were indicted for having on 29th December last stolen fifty fowl belonging to Samuel Carlisle. There was a count for receiving.

Mr. George Hill Smith and Mr. George Brett (instructed by Mr. J.R. Moorhead, crown Solicitor) appeared for the prosecution and Mr. Thomas Campbell (instructed by Mr. B. Campbell) defended Moneypenny. The other prisoner was not defended.

Evidence was given that Carlisle is a farmer in Ballyutoag, and that his henhouse was broken into and the fowl taken. William Hamill of Budore, swore that on the night in question he saw a horse and van on the Hannahstown Road leading to Carlisle’s house. There were two men in the van, and he identified Moneypenny as one of those men. Patrick Comerford, publican, Hannahstown, also identified Moneypenny as being in the cart. Other witnesses were examined to show that there were marks of cart wheels near Carlisle’s house corresponding in width to Moneypenny’s cart. Five bags of feathers were found in Moneypenny’s house. The defence was an alibi. The jury found Moneypenny guilty of the larceny, and McCann guilty of receiving.

His Lordship said he agreed with the verdict. He was a regular jail bird of the worst description. Moneypenny had been 24 times in jail. They are a nice pair of lads, added his lordship, and you have got rid of them for a little while. Sentence was deferred.
