THE EXAMINATIONS of John James Lecky of
BallyKealy in the Parish of Fenagh Barony of Forth and
County of Carlow aforesaid, Esquire D.L. - who being duly
Sworn on the Holy Evangelists and examined, deposeth and
saith, that on the morning of the 30th day of November 1846
- I saw a man outside my house at BallyKealy before one o
Clock he was knocking with a long Bough at an upper Window
he went from said Window after I first saw him and in a
short time returned without his coat, I observed Jane Morris
a maid who slept in the room above / let down a quilt which
he fastened himself to and was drawn up / he assisting / and
entered into the House by the Window I sent immediately for
the Police Constable Michael Reynolds came very soon with
Sub Constable Patrick Reilly. John Furney was under a Bed in
said Room and came from under it when Constable Michael
Reynolds pushed his Gun with the Bayonet fixed towards where
he lay concealed, he had only his shirt on at the time , I
fear that unless said person / viz. John Furney / who
entered my House at said time and place be bound over in
sufficient Sureties to keep the peace and be of good
behaviour my person or property will be injured by said John
*John James Lecky*.
