Hanoria Gibbons of Cappahornan v. Michael Basquil of Ayle
“Assaulting her on Monday the 22nd day of May 1843”

Michael was Walter’s father and my great-great-great grandfather. This was not his shining moment, I think.

If you have Irish ancestors and you have a FindMyPast subscription, I strongly recommend looking through the Irish Petty Sessions record set. It’s occasionally sad, but often quite entertaining.
