Descripción

7pp., folio, paginated 338-344. A complete set of accounts for the period from 11 October 1786 to 31 December 1787, on four loose leaves, with the recto of the first leaf blank apart from pagination to 337. Signed at end: 'Errors excepted | Culmore 31st Decr 1787 | Robt. Bateson', and signed 'Jas Henry'. In fair condition, lightly aged and worn. An interesting document, revealing some distress among the tenants. The first entry relates to 'arrears due by Insolvent Tenants at Novr. 1785', amounting to £1376, of which £8 5s is 'due the Bailiff', with references to Archibald McKendry, Samuel Strear, James Carson and Lord Antrim. Later on Bateson holds 'a Profit arising' on the farms of McKendry and Carson in his 'own hands', and there is also a reference to the Bridge Farm. The latter part of the document consists of itemised 'Expenses paid on accot of my Farm', with 73 entries indicating the extensive nature of the concern, including: 'Davd. Smith return of Labourers', 'Cost of 89 Bushells of oats for Seed', 'Cost of 850 young Fir Trees', 'Cost of 422 Barrels of Lime'. A number of individuals are named, including 'Wm. Wallace for three Heifers to return if not in Calf', 'McConnel & McKinlay for Mason Work in Lodge', 'Thos Rays Bill for Sawing Timbers in field', 'Broadly for lookg after Game on Mountain' and 'Ax. McConnel for Carpenter Work in Stable'. Bateson assumed the additional surname of Harvey by sign manual in 1788, and was created a Baronet of Ireland in the following year.
