Lemon or Lennon?

From Pat Purcell Papers. 1816.

Difficult to make out if the surname on this document is Lemon or Lenon.

While it is not as clear as a previous document on which was recorded a Carlow Jeweller with the surname Lemon Mick Purcell thinks this may also be Lemon because of the "watchmaker" occupation.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Equally interesting is the occupation noted for George Bergan.

Recognizance to Prosecute.

County of Carlow to wit.

Joseph Lemon ( Lenon) of the Town and County of Carlow, Watchmaker, maketh oath that he usually Resides in the Town of Carlow.

Sworn before me this 28th Day of October 1816. 

Be it remembered that the above named Joesph Lemon came in his proper Person before me and Acknowledged himself to be Indebted unto our Sovereign Lord King George the Third, in the Sum of Ten Pounds Sterling. To appear in his proper Person in open Court to Prosecute George Bergan ( ? ) of Carlow, Bell Man and Town Crier of Carlow. (signed) Joseph Lemon. Taken and acknowledged before me the Day and Year aforesaid.

Names: Kelly, Troy, James & Lyons

From Pat Purcell Papers.

A Rescue Recognizance was a "Rescue of Goods Distrained for Rent".

If the Constable, Bailiff or Sheriff seized goods or livestock for non-payment of Rent / Cess / Tax and if the seized goods were then taken back by force or other means then that was called "a rescue".

On the previous Statements we read that Pat Kelly, Matt Lyons, Richard Byrne have challenged the Constables Troy and James and have taken back the beasts that were seized.

The Informations as outlined on the Statements are making serious charges of "rescue" of cows and horse plus assault charges against Pat Kelly and Pat Lyons.
