Index to Solicitors' Records
The North of Ireland Family History Society (NIFHS) has a collection of indexed solicitors’ records, mainly from the Lurgan/Portadown area, in the Randal Gill Library.
The material in these numbered boxes was offered to P.R.O.N.I. and, as they did not want it, it was then given to N.I.F.H.S. It consists of papers from various solicitors, mostly Herbert Murray Gibson, Valentine Wilson and William Henry Wright of Portadown, Co. Armagh, but also from Wilson McKeown, Ballymena, Co. Antrim, whose documents are mostly in Box 7. The documents are mostly copies of wills and land papers. There are 14 boxes and the material in each box is arranged alphabetically. One main surname has been chosen for each “envelope” and these entries are given as follows, meaning that the information on Patrick Fearon can be found in Box 7 in an envelope marked FEARON.
|7||FEARON||Patrick||Artabracka, Co. Armagh||D.O.D. 30/08/1928||Will & Probate. To be buried in Mullavilly Burying Ground|
Other names mentioned in the envelope are given as follows, meaning that the information on Michael John Woolsey can be found in Box 7 in an envelope marked FEARON.
|7||WOOLSEY||Michael John||Cornascscrieb, Co. Armagh||Nephew of Patrick Fearon||See Patrick Fearon/7|
Please note that the information in the index may not be entirely accurate. Please don’t rely on it and check the envelope for the full information.
As the index is so extensive, it is held as a PDF file instead of on a web page:
