Rej. all 28 Nov. 1700 Plaintiff James Byrne sheweth: That 3 or 4 years ago there happened a communication between Plt. and Jane Terran, James Terran & John Terran, for a marriage between Plt. & Mary the dau. of Jane Terran & sister of James Terran, and that Jane in consideration of the marriage did promise to give Plt. £30 as a portion with Mary. James did promise to pay his sister Mary £10 or value thereof in goods or cattle, and John Terran did also declare that he had £10 belonging to his sister Mary, which he promised to pay. That Plt. soon after married Mary according to the laws of the church, and did apply to James, Jane & John Terran for the marriage portion, and they paid £9 to Mary after the marriage. That in August following £9 more in money & corn, & about the following May 12, in all £30 was paid to Plt. That Plt. frequently demanded the rest of the money but could not get it & did also suffer great loss as follows: that Plt. was forced to sell 30 barrels of green corn at £6 the score & at delivery thereof bear was sold at 18/- per barrel, so that Plt. sustained losses thereby to the value of £18-18/-, & for want of said money Plt. borrowed £6 from Wm. Terran, brother to James & John Terrran. That upon some difference relating thereto Plt. was ordered by arbitration to pay Wm. Terran £8-15?-, so that Plt. lost £2-15?-. That Plt. and Defs. had 14 several meetings & references to the differences between them "at Killcock Monouth *(or Mououth) and other places in order to end said differences, but could not. At which meetings Plt. expended £4-16/11 and much more besides loss of tine, & that on said account Defs. are in Plts. debt in the sum of £46-9/11, besides the interest of Plts. wifes fortune. That said marriage portion was secured in the hands of the Deft. by Mary's father by some deeds or writings which the Defs. retain in their hands and refuse to produce same, and they allege the £30 already paid to Plt. was their own money and was only a loan to Plt. & they threaten to sue Plt. for same. Prays that writs may be gtd. agst. James Terran, James Terran, & John Terran, to answer. Bill entered 9 Nov. 1699. Attornees Ri: Delamare # Ri: Aldworth *This is the only place mentioned in the bill by which to locate the parties. # Delamare frequently conducted causes for Dublin & Connaught people. ----------------------------------------------------------- Kilcock and Maynouth are 20m west of Dublin on the Meath / Kildare border. This makes it unlikely that these were of Scottish descent.
