Pat Purcell Papers.
Examination of Thomas Gurly, Gent., of Dunleckney, County of
Carlow before me this 3rd day of August 1761, Sworn on the
Holy Evangelists, saith that on Monday the 3rd instant as he
was on the lands of Seskin one Frances Kavanagh / a person
who he believes / has no certain place of residence and is a
idle and disorderly person, did without any provocation come
up and with a stick in his hand made several strokes and
that had it not been for a second Gent then present he
believes that Kavanagh would have done him bodily harm.
