Immediate Lessor

Patrick Burke was the named lessor on the house. He would have been the more common, middleman or rent collector, as James Galbraith was the actual landlord and is the named Lessor of Patrick’s tenement.



Occupier – Thomas Long (2)

The second description of land of a Thomas Long’s tenement in Cregboy is most likely that of the first Thomas Long (Occupier 1). As there is no way to confirm this so it has been recorded separately. Thomas Long’s (Occupier 2) tenement is that of 3 areas of land.  The first is of 4 acres, 1 rood and 8 perches with a monetary value of £1 and 10 shillings.  The second piece of land was 1 acre and 22 perches with a value of 8 shillings and the third piece was 3 roods and 22 perches. This gave a total value to Thomas’s tenement on this land as £2 and 4 shillings.

Immediate Lessor

James Galbraith was the landlord and owned Thomas’s tenement.
