Thomas Knight

Thomas Knight 1650.

Pat Purcell Papers

"Thomas Knight, late of Carlow, who having secured land in the County of Cork" acted as a witness to a land transaction in Carlow in 1650.

Witnessed the transferring of "ground in the Burrin lands in Carlow town from Joseph Eames, late a soldier in Cromwell's army", to John Broadway.


Note from Michael Purcell 2011

Thomas Knight did not swear the Oath as a witness which may indicate he was a member of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) as was Joseph Eames I think?

If Knight was a Quaker you may be lucky because they have kept excellent records, it might be worth contacting Christopher Moriarty at:

Historical Library,
Quaker House Dublin,
Stocking Lane,
Dublin 16
