That's a great wikipedia article, Hermy. Thanks for linking.
I also love that Spurious thanked the previous post.

I came upon that via Mark Humphries website.
Found this in a court record:
"Defendant on 25th December 1904 showed signs of insanity by tearing his bed clothes, jumped through the window and having no clothes on only his shirt, made away through the fields"
Poor fellow was committed to a lunatic asylum.
Found a death of Bridget Hanly aged 104 in 1890 this morning.
Lived through the 1798 Rebellion!
And she died of 'old age'! I think I came across that record before in my own research but it wasn't one of mine.
