Notice of Sale (Tyrone Constitution, November 20 1903)


These papers relate to the sale of part of the Ogilby land near Altnachree Castle, Liscloon, Donemana. Most of these purchasers would have been tenants of the estate originally, but the names below are certainly only a small proportion of the original tenantry. (No comprehensive rent rolls have been found for this estate).

All the documents related to sale under the Irish Land Commission and all were dated between 1901 and 1904. Each document commences with :”In the matter of the estate of William Grant Douglas, Gordon Douglas and James Hannay, trustees for the sale of the estate of Claude William Leslie Ogilby under deed dated 28 November 1877…….”
