Ah, don't worry - I sensed the subtle hint of sarcasm in you post.

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.

I think this might belong in here.

That is a brilliant find Hermy! At first I thought you were talking about all the Do's, then I saw the right hand column, but then I noticed the occupation. I have never ever heard any mention of non-RC evictions as I was always led to believe it was only the very poor RC tenants who were evicted. Any other references you know of?

I could only find one birth record for the couple and it was for Noble Armstrong baptised in 1896 in Church of Ireland. The address was Kenagh (not far from Kilcommock) in Longford and the father was a farmer at the time. I don't see the family in 1911. Also interesting that one of the sons was named William O'Brien Armstrong.

Edit: The civil births are available for all the children but I could only find one baptism that was online. Robert was still a farmer living in Kenagh in 1898 when the last child was born.

I know nothing about them - I came by it quite by accident while looking for a different Armstrong who was present at a death in Longford - but like you the reference to eviction caught my eye.

I found two newspaper articles of a description of Robert Armstrong's eviction. In another article he was a member of the United Irish League and described as a 'Protestant Home Ruler and evicted tenant' in 1900. I've attached the two articles on his eviction for anyone who's interested.

Edit: His eviction seems to have occurred in 1888. His occupation was gentleman when he married in 1884.

Mr. Armstrong's story seems to be full of "funny/unusual" aspects. Did anyone notice the name of the signatory of the summons?-
