Henry Ffrench1

b. 1803, d. 8 February 1881
Father*______ Ffrench2
Birth*1803Henry Ffrench was born about 1803.3
Marriage Settlement*15 November 1847A Memorial of an Indenture dated 15 November 1847 was made between Henry Ffrench Esq. of Beaupeep in the county of Roscommon of the first part, Margaret Dignan of Enfield in the county of Roscommon aforesaid, spinster, of the second part, and Margaret's brother, Philip Dignan Esq., of Enfield in the county of Roscommon and Richard Kelly Jr. Esq. of the town of Roscommon, in the county of Roscommon, of the third part, regarding the intended marriage of Henry Ffrench Esq. and Margaret Dignan.

Ireland’s memorial deeds are handwritten, and the microfilmed copies are often difficult to read. Additionally, we are uncertain, in some instances, that we have identified the correct townlands. In earlier times, how the name of a townland was spelled depended upon how the initial scribe heard the name pronounced, and then how future scribes interpreted what was written. As a result, the names and spellings of many Irish townlands were spelled differently from deed to deed, book to book and year to year. Attempts to standardize the spelling of Ireland’s townlands began around the turn of the 20th century. A townland’s Barony did not always remain constant, either. Changes were made as populations grew. Our own transcription that follows attempts to identify the correct townlands mentioned in the deed and spell them in the current (2020) standard form. Our placement of quotation marks around a townland’s name means we remain uncertain about our selection of the correct townland, or have used the spelling as we saw it in the deed because we couldn’t find a good guess. Our transcription follows, and we welcome suggestions and corrections:

Reciting as therein and among others, said Indenture witnessed that in consideration of said intended marriage and others, the considerations therein mentioned, she the said Margaret Dignan, with the privity and consent of the said Henry Ffrench, granted, bargained, sold, assigned, transferred and made over unto the said Philip Dignan and Richard Kelly Jr., their executors, administrators and assigns, all that and those two several Judgements for the respective sums of £4,000 and £2,000 obtained against the said Hamilton Gorges by the said Margaret Dignan, and all sums of money due or to become due thereon, and all benefit and advantage thereof.

The prospectus regarding the sale reported the estate of Patrick Dillon, and of solicitor Henry Ffrench Esq. and Patrick's father Richard Dillon, Trustees, in part of the lands of "Clonegrasson, East", known on the ordnance survey as Cloonagrassan, containing 128 acres, 1 rood and 38 perches, statute measure, situate in the Barony of Ballymoe and County of Roscommon, and held in fee simple, was to be sold in one lot on 30 April 1867 at the Landed Estates' Court, Inn's-Quay, in the city of Dublin.

The descriptive particulars of the property stated that "the railway from Dublin to Castlebar passes through the lands, which are situate about half a mile from the Ballymoe Station of the Great Northern and Western Railway of Ireland. They are within four miles of Castlerea, and eight of Roscommon, by railway. The upland is a good arable soil, held by industrious tenants, who pay their total net annual rents of £68 8s. 5 ½d., punctually. There is a large quantity of bog attached to the lands, which makes them of great value."

The conditions of sale included historical information about the property's most recent previous sale transaction in addition to conditions included in the current sale. It reviewed the Indenture dated 16 June 1863 made between Patrick Dillon's father-in-law, Patrick Trears, of the first part, Patrick Dillon of the second part, and his father, Richard Dillon, and solicitor Henry Ffrench Esq., Trustees, of the third part. It provided, among other things, that Henry Ffrench and Richard Dillon, as trustees, would hold the said lands, premises and hereditaments upon trust, by sale or mortgage of the said premises, to raise the sum of £315 14s. 11d., and pay the same, with all interest due thereon, after the rate of 5%, to Patrick Trears, and his executors, administrators, or assigns, but subject to redemption thereinafter contained.

The life estate of the owner, subject to said mortgage dated 16 June 1866 for the sum of £315 14s. 11d., in the Lands of Cloonagrassan East containing 128 acres, 1 rood and 38 perches, was to be sold under the foregoing clause, which was inserted to defeat creditors.

A certified copy of said deed of 16 June 1863 was to be handed to the purchaser, and could be inspected by intending purchasers before the sale.

The conveyance of the owner's interest was to be made by general reference to the life estate, under the said deed of 16 June 1863, and the purchaser was not object to on that account.

The above mentioned mortgage was a charge on the Fee. The purchaser would, therefore, only be bound to keep down the interest thereon; if any further demand in respect thereof was made on the purchaser, he would be entitled to be recouped thereof out of the inheritance.10,11

Ireland’s memorial deeds are handwritten, and the microfilmed copies are often difficult to read. Additionally, we are uncertain, in some instances, that we have identified the correct townlands. In earlier times, how the name of a townland was spelled depended upon how the initial scribe heard the name pronounced, and then how future scribes interpreted what was written. As a result, the names and spellings of many Irish townlands were spelled differently from deed to deed, book to book and year to year. Attempts to standardize the spelling of Ireland’s townlands began around the turn of the 20th century. A townland’s Barony did not always remain constant, either. Changes were made as populations grew. Our own transcription that follows attempts to identify the correct townlands mentioned in the deed and spell them in the current (2020) standard form. Our placement of quotation marks around a townland’s name means we remain uncertain about our selection of the correct townland, or have used the spelling as we saw it in the deed because we couldn’t find a good guess. Our transcription follows, and we welcome suggestions and corrections:
